#2490190 Ken Holland's Moves From 2009-2014

Posted by Nev on 05 March 2014 - 01:24 PM

I made a quick spreadsheet of all the transactions KH has orchestrated since 2009. It is insanely unimpressive. It's just trades/signings. I didn't add drafting, because who knows how that will turn out. he's drafted Ferraro, Tatar, Jensen, Callahan, AA1, Sheahan, Jarnkrok, Pulkinnen, Mrazek, Jurco, Oullet, Sproul, Backman, Marchenko, AA2 and Mantha, and it makes it a lot harder for Holland bashers to bash him

 

 

 

FTFY




#2490175 Nicklas Lidstrom:Greatest Red Wing Ever

Posted by Nev on 05 March 2014 - 01:17 PM

lidstrom is undoubtedly a better player than yzerman, though.

 

First time I've ever agreed with you.  Lidstrom is a top-5, arguably top-3 defenceman of all time.  Yzerman wasn't even the 3rd best center of his era.

 

But Yzerman certainly means more to the Wings fanbase, taking them from the Dead Wings to 3 Stanley Cups.




#2487738 2/27 GDT : Red Wings 6 at Senators 1, Franzen w/Hat Trick

Posted by Nev on 28 February 2014 - 01:43 AM

Franzen in playoff beast mode already?

 

Don't peak too early now.  

 

To be fair, he's been in playoff beast mode since December.  20 points in his last 18 games I think.

 

Anyway, someone posted this on the Wings FB page

Well done Canada, can't say you didn't deserve it.

 

But a really disapointing game after all the hype.

 

Go Kronner,go Big Rig, go Alfie, go Goose, go Monster.

Anyone else in awe of the sheer skill possessed by these two teams? These are unquestionably the two best teams in this tournament

Canada is almost as good as USA.. almost
There is traitor among us. Someone check Mcdonaugh's birth certificate

 

For me its the speed they're playing at.  This is easily the fastest paced game I've seen so far.

I want the USA to beat Canada for 2 reasons

 

1)  The entire Canadian fanbase seem to have decided to start behaving like Toronto Maple Leafs fans for this tournament.

 

2)  Kessel

Kessel is the man.

should be some good games tomorrow.
i have managed to stay clear of LGW for the last 3 weeks.
Mostly because of vacation but also because 
from the looks of things its been pretty intense.
 

Wings fans unite to show support of their countries.
That is all well and good, but in all seriousness i can't
wait until olympic hockey is over and we can get back
to the NHL hockey. :)

 

 

This thread was great.....up until the point that the USA and Canada ended up in the same half of the bracket.  Then this thread went downhill fast :(

#2485380 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by Nev on 20 February 2014 - 05:05 AM

Zetterberg is flying back today on the charter flight the NHL arranged to bring back all the players knocked out in the QF's.

 

Sochi to Newark, then Newark to Detroit - don't know how my back would hold up, let alone Z's! :lol:

Ah well, go Big Rig, Alfie, Kronner, Nyquist and Monster.

From the link above...

 

The failure of the KHL and NHL players on the roster to blend into a cohesive team was clear and apparent. There were rumors in the past few days of tension in the Russian camp, and at the heart of it was the KHL-NHL issue. Why in the world was Alexander Popov playing on the top line with Ovechkin and Malkin the past two games? Why was KHL defenseman Evgeni Medvedev among the leaders in ice time on the team, playing more than NHLers such as Fedor Tyutin and Alexei Emelin?

Why? Because the KHL and Russian hockey hoped to use the world's biggest hockey games as a propaganda tool for the Russian professional league that vies to rival the NHL. Well, that was a complete and utter disaster.

 

Does anyone believe that the KHL is on a similar level of play than the NHL?

 

Seems as though those in charge of the Russian Olympic squad have their heads in the sand.

 

Ovechkin plays in the KHL?
