#2536707 Training Camp Thread

Posted by number9 on Yesterday, 09:03 PM

I'm predicting 82 gp, 27-20-47 for Cleary this year. I think that's pretty fair based on his training camp performance thus far.

That's pretty conservative...way to play it safe.

#2536691 Barry Trotz Wants Ovechkin to be more like Yzerman

Posted by RusDRW on Yesterday, 01:58 AM

Fedorov, Bure, Mogilny - Russian wingers known for their two way game just off the top of my head. 




Edit: Yes, Fedorov was a center. He's my all-time favourite player and I just had momentary brain-fart. 


Fedorov was "soviet" center. Any center from those USSR teams knew how to play defense.

#2536667 Training Camp Thread

Someone in the comments section in the link Dirtydangles posted noted that Weiss has looked really good out there so far, despite the stats.


To add to that, Pav did not get any points today either. I guess we should bench him? I don't understand why some Red Wings fans need to be so negative all the time. I am more than willing to give Weiss another chance to prove himself. He is a heck of a player and lets see what he can do healthy this year before we dump him in freakin training camp!

#2536543 Selanne would still play if Boudreau wasn't Ducks coach

Posted by MotorCityMadness on 18 September 2014 - 08:18 PM


You were a 44 year old who simply was not contributing effectively enough to warrant a regular spot in the lineup. Sometimes stuff has to be done for the betterment of the team no matter the surrounding circumstances.

Just go enjoy retirement and take solace in the fact that you had a great career from start to finish.


Reality Check

#2536540 Selanne would still play if Boudreau wasn't Ducks coach

Posted by martinezsvsu on 18 September 2014 - 06:03 PM


Based on some of the tantrums he threw against the Wings in the 2013 season along with some stupid comments he made about Kronwall a few years back, I've had a hard time towing the the "Selanne is a classy guy" line.

he would be like the 20th classiest guy in the wings organization.

#2536510 Flames adding Truculence...Yonkman, Gillies PTO

Posted by rick zombo on 18 September 2014 - 12:22 PM



Burkie going all out on truculence, it gives them a chance to McDavid and will make sure that Monahan, Johnny Hockey and Baertschi can focus on hockey plus the Flames fans will see a very entertaining product. Not a bad idea at all.


This team is going to kick some serious ass Bollig, McGrattan, Yonkman, Gillies, Ferland, Wolf ... god I wish Torts would still coach in Vancouver just to see his face when Hardley sends his "top 6" out


Well, Burke's model worked really well for Toronto................

#2536474 Mantha's Injury

Posted by FlashyG on 17 September 2014 - 11:04 PM

Now if the Wings dressed some enforcers for that game.....That knee injury would've never happened.


Yeah an enforcer would have pounded that rut right out of the ice and Mantha would be fine.


You can always count on an enforcer to make sure the ice is at its highest quality.

Posted by kipwinger on 18 September 2014 - 02:22 PM

Well that's a good way to throw out all the good will you'd built up over a career.  I've got no love for Boudreau, he's a clown, but Selanne is apparently a petulant child in a grown man's body.  Keep in mind Selanne had 9 goals and 18 points in 64 games last season.  Lol. 

#2536250 Ericsson and Alfredsson not 100%

Posted by darkmanx on 15 September 2014 - 08:42 PM

Alfie go out in style no need to put your body through this you've already 68 $ million in your bank account!


Sign a day contract in Ottawa and retire as a Senator don't just hang on for the sake of it like Brodeur and Jagr are doing it's just not worth it.


Jagr is still an incredible player. Wish the Wings signed him. Datsyuk and him would be magic, good luck getting the puck off those two.

#2536116 Who should get cut/traded by game 1 of the season?

Posted by wings87 on 12 September 2014 - 08:53 PM

Love to see Kindl/Lashoff and Cleary gone by game 1. I'd jump for joy. Quincey too but that ain't happening.

I'm still in disbelief that holland never upgraded the Defense, it's mind boggling. My mind is boggled!

#2536055 A Perfect fit for the Bruins...Ville Leino?

Posted by kipwinger on 12 September 2014 - 10:48 AM

What the hell is wrong with a Chiarelli? First trading Seguin, now not re-signing Thornton and now Leino? The guy is the exact up opposite of a Bruin! Yeah they can send him down but I'll highly doubt he makes the team out of pto If he's smart he tries to replace Thornton but I guess he is confident with a softer Bruins team but only till the leafs are coming to town. Save for Chara nobody can take on Orr or Mclaren not even Lucic I expect some cheap shots against Bergeron, Krug and Krejci. This may very well be the softest Bruins edition since years I would be pissed if I were a Bruins fan


Frank, you can't possibly think that Chiarelli should make personnel moves based on the fear of a non playoff team "coming to town".  Even without Thornton the Bruins are miles tougher than every other team in the league.  I think they'll be ok during the next brawl filled circus that they seem to have once or twice a season.

Finger, wrist injuries are worrysome remember the Crosby situation ? 4 days non stop news about surgery ?

Crosby could stub his toe in the off-season while on vacation in Jamaica and it would be front page news on nhl.com lol
