Is anyone else just a little bit sad that Pronger will be out for this series? As happy as I was when he got injured, I know realise how much I would actually enjoy watching him repeatedly cross-checking Crosby throughout a series.

God forbid HWSNBN has to take his lumps like every player does, including taking s*** from TV talking heads. The poor widdle pwincess.


Careful - you'll have Majsheppard on your case for gender stereotyping ;)


#2276862 Pens vs Flyers

Because a cross check to the lower back doesn't hurt at all right? Crosby and his "feeling of pain", what a ****** right?


Yes, he is a ******. And a little *****, and an entitlement *****. If he feels that way about players using their sticks away from the play, maybe he should stop with the hacks and the slashes and the cross-checks that he is so fond of?


#2276601 Pens vs Flyers

And thats why he's a such a little *****. If he was a Lady Byng candidate type player, he has every right to look like he's about to burst into tears. But he's not. He's a little ***** who does exactly the same kind of crap himself then calls it "a hockey play"


#2276564 4/1 GDT : Panthers 1 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

someone shoot thef****** puck, everything is a pass to the other team. What happened to puck possesion ?



He signed for Anaheim as a free agent about 9 years ago


#2274705 Quincey vs. Stuart

Posted by Nev on 28 March 2012 - 12:38 AM

$2-3M???? Stuart is worth more like $4-5M.

Anyway, he ain't coming back, thats why we got Quincey.


#2274703 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Watch them win a couple of games now and clamber up to the 7th or 8th overall pick instead of tanking and getting a lottery pick....


#2273336 Crosby

Posted by Nev on 24 March 2012 - 04:54 PM

Well stop reading it mate, and take your own advice and stop posting in it!

Fact is, we Wings fans have a love/hate relationship with Crosby - we love to hate him. And in our heart of hearts, most of us know that he is probly the best player in the NHL right now, we just can't/won't admit it. That;s what happens when you're a whiny entitlement ***** who gets relentlessly shoved down the hockey worlds throat.


#2273272 Which team would piss you off the most if they won the cup?

Posted by Nev on 24 March 2012 - 04:38 AM

Although I think the main reason why Pittsburgh is the front runner is because they're the favorite of the way we would be relentlessly deep-throated with Crosby hype even worse than we already are


Fixed that for you.


#2273149 Which team would piss you off the most if they won the cup?

Posted by Nev on 23 March 2012 - 12:02 PM

Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh again.

But only if Crosby is playing - if he's injured all playoffs and they win it, and as long as they don't beat us in the finals - I'd be curiously satisfied.


#2272476 So who could the Red Wings get in the offseason?

Posted by Nev on 21 March 2012 - 01:05 PM

Had a little play on Capgeek.com and the situation I see it is this.

Assuming: Cap stays roughly the same. Hudler, Holmstrom and Stuart are not re-signed. Lidstrom, Abdelkader and Helm are re-signed for ~ $9M total, leaves us with ~ $7-8M in cap space to try and sign 1 big UFA (Weber or Parise).

If we want to sign Nash or Suter (RFA) we're going to need to clear another $7-8M in cap space, the easiest way being to trade Franzen and Ericson for one of them as part of package.

so...

FORWARDS
Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Rick Nash ($7.800m)
Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Gustav Nyquist ($0.875m)
Drew Miller ($0.838m) / Darren Helm ($1.500m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.500m)
Daniel Cleary ($2.800m) / Jan Mursak ($0.550m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m)
Cory Emmerton ($0.533m) /
DEFENSEMEN
Nicklas Lidstrom ($6.000m) / Shea Weber ($7.300m)
Ian White ($2.875m) / Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m)
Brendan Smith ($0.875m) / Kyle Quincey ($3.350m)
Jakub Kindl ($0.883m) /
GOALTENDERS
Jimmy Howard ($2.250m)
Joey MacDonald ($0.550m)
------
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $64,287,500; BONUSES: $37,500
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $12,500

Pav needs a bona-fide sniper alongside him, whether it be Parise or Nash. Hossa and Shanahan had 40 goal seasons being fed by Pav, Hull had 30 and 37. 'nuff said.


#2272359 Did Holland build a BMW instead of a Chevy?

Combined weight of current Wings roster excluding goalies, 4778 lbs. Combined weight of current Sharks roster excluding goalies, 4780 lbs.



Yeah, thank goodness for our big players - Franzen (6-2, 220) and Bertuzzi (6-3, 235) racing in on the forecheck, wearing the opposition down with their hits, battling in front of the net.....and Ericsson (6-5, 220) winning all those battles in the corner, knocking opponents on their asses around our net.... Posted Image

Meanwhile:

Datsyuk (5-11, 195)
Zetterberg (5-11, 195)
Emmerton (6-0, 190)
Fillpulla (6-0, 193)
Helm (5-11, 195)
Nyquist (5-11, 170!)
Hudler (5-9, 178. Yeah right)
Miller (6-2, 178. Beanpole!)
Mursak (5-11, 184)
Eaves (6-0, 191)
Kronwall (6-0, 190)
White (5-10, 191) / Rafalski (5-10, 178. Another yeah right)

Now obviously size isn't everything, and some of our smaller players are also some of our more physical (and best), but across the roster, we're just too damn small, and our 3 biggest players don't play like big men and use their size. I'm happier that our D is bigger with the addition of Quincey and Smith, but the latter is seemingly giving away a goal a game atm with his rookie mistakes, something that cannot be tolerated in the playoffs.

#2271328 Helm has MCL sprain, out 4-6 weeks

Posted by Nev on 18 March 2012 - 02:58 AM

I like to wait a few days before I get injuries checked out as well....


Well, they're going to be flying back to Detroit Sunday - I know Red Bird One is impressive and all that, but I'm sure it doesn't have a full medical suite onboard...
