#2529815 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by freshy on 03 July 2014 - 03:21 PM

Young guys had to step up HUGE at the end of last year. Nyquist isn't going to score every game when teams start keying in on him because Hank & Pavs are out with injury. The kids are gamers. They will infuse drive in the rest of the team and we should be much better with them all starting on the same page together at camp.

You play to win, not to be competitve.

So we don't win? I hate to break it to you, but we aren't going to win the cup every year. We didn't when we could spend like drunk wallstreeters', and certainly not in a cap era like now. We are two seasons removed from a GREAT year. 4 years from our last finals appearence. We always make the playoffs.

Someone stated it perfect earlier in that Holland perception is a victim of his own success in this cap era. People want perfection & deep playoff runs yearly and don't seem to see the teams that are winning cups BESIDES us have tanked in recent years.

Man oh man. So we are garbage now, is that it? Give me a break. How many other teams did Matt freakin' Niskanen(?!) not sign with? Are they all garbage too? We struck out in FA's this year. It happens for the MAJORITY of the teams in the league. Quincey will fill a role for two years and be fine doing it. He knows the system & obviously has a degree of faith in him with Holland AND Babcock. All those clamoring for a new GM who are you going to replace him with? Who has been better in the last 10 years keeping a team competitive?

#2484243 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by freshy on 15 February 2014 - 12:53 PM

Ummm for those that watch the games, yes Micky has been talking about Z not being 100% and that his back has been bothering him. That means yes, he has been the walking wounded.

Z has had a bad back for 2-3 years now. It is not going to get better on its own. HD's don't work that way. he has to have surgery. Period. Even then doesn't mean it fixes things. Just buys time until you have another then another then another. I know lots of people that have had this issue-spent 30 years in construction. Everyone that has one surgery on HD's has another within 5 years. Heck, look at Bert. How long and how many surgeries has he had? Several. Micky Redmond had his career cut short because of his back.

It actually can get "better" (aka less pain & absorption of disk matter) on it's own if given sufficient nutrients & time to heal. Surgery may/may not help with speeding up the process. Evidence is mixed. The problem for Z is that he has an occupation that isn't going to allow for his nervous system to calm down. Back pain is a ***** in that once you have it, your nervous system is centrally sensitized and it is very hard to keep it under control. Our bodies can be cruel in their effort to protect us. Sometimes it thinks the movement of reaching for the shampoo in the shower is a threat & put's people out of commission for a week. Now think about that with Z, a guy getting hacked, whacked, & pushing his body to the limit. For guys like him & Helm it is going to be rough.

Heading over to the SPTF. Time to get a victory tonight! Can't wait to see Cleary, Sammy, & Quincey in the flesh....Goosebumps(and that Datsyuk guy).




#2460492 Zetterberg out at least 2 weeks with herniated disc

Posted by freshy on 03 December 2013 - 05:40 PM

This blows. Going to my first live Wings game next Thursday. Haven't been to a live Wings game since the trips with the old man back at the Joe over 25 years ago. The St. Pete Times forum will be without Hank, DD, Stamkos, & maybe Pavs. 

 

At least I'll get to see Cleary, Emmerton, & Sammy in person ;)

 

If I was to somehow bump into "The Captain" it would make up for this slight by the Hockey Gods.

Blah. Cleary doesn't know what to do with the perfect Pavs pass in front. Carolina scores craptastic :(
