Are Russian players "really" lazy

12 July 2012 - 02:04 PM

So I preface this with saying I am a competitive dancer.(yes I am straight) In the dance world the Russian dancers are the most disciplined, hardest working dancers. I always that that was kind of the culture in Russia. Yet in Hockey the Russian players are always branded as soft most often floating type of players (excluding Datsuyk of course) Do you feel Russian players just dont care about the Stanley cup playoffs, or do you believe this just to be a fallacy all together?

Do we really need Suter?

Ok Here are my If's. Lids signs for 3.5. We sign Parise for 6.0. We sign Doan for 4.5. Finally we trade Franzen and cleary and a first to Colombus for Nash. which is 7.8 in, with 6.4 going out. Obiviously we dont sign Hudler or Stuart. Maybe pick up one tough guy(fighter) early and a depth defenceman at the trade deadline.

My question is could you live with Lids, kronwall, Erickson, Quincy, White, Smith? Kindl and Janik being the seventh and eighth until the Deadline?
Would the team be tough enough? I just don't see defence being what the problem was.

The only teams that can win the cup

Ok, I think there are only five teams that can win four rounds. Detroit, San Jose, and Vancouver in the west, and Boston, and the Rags in the East. I am not saying someone else can't upset one of these teams. However, in my opinion only these 5 teams can win the cup. What say you?

Which Nhl team would you most want the Redwings to get revenge on for a earlier series defeat?

I would love for the Wings to sweep the devils in the finals for payback from 1995.

Our Power play

05 February 2012 - 03:28 PM

So what are your feelings on why our power play is so bad? Too many set-up guys and not enough snipers? Relying too much on the deflection in front of the net?

Speaking of the latter what is the deal with our skaters alone going down the middle and passing it off to a wing on the side creating a much worse shooting angle. This happens so much I am beginning to think this is a philosophy of the coaches.
