#2476536 Look who's top in GR scoring

Posted by Nev on 24 January 2014 - 12:55 PM



You know, I was thinking about our situation today and we might not be as bad off as it seems. Here are a couple options that I see:
1) Convert Waka Flocka Chewbacca from the wing to defense. He's a big guy and I could see him being a good net clearing presence until Big Poppa gets back.
2) Make a trade. We don't have a ton of tradeable assets right now, but maybe General Tso's Chicken could pull a rabbit out of his hat. I'm thinking we could package together Destiny's Child and Can't-stop-thinkin-bout-that-girl-I-banged-in-Starbucks-bathroom-kinda-wish-I-got-her-number-espesh-cause-now-it-burns-when-I-pee-oh-well-hope-its-chillz for an elite puck moving defenseman, maybe someone like Hello Kitty.
3) If all else fails it might be time to come up with some new nicknames for the team I mean how can the team be expected to perform at an elite level with old nicknames, sometimes I feel like I have to think of everything shesh...
Tigerpenis - Bed, Bath & Beyond - (Sound of nails on chalkboard)

#2473229 2010-2011 drafts will be our savior

Posted by Nev on 16 January 2014 - 02:41 AM

I am just going by the scouting reports.  He currently sits at spot 11 in their top 25, which isn't bad at all, but he is on the way down the list, and he needs to step it up a bit to start crawling back up it.  I don't think he is a bust, but he IS out of exemptions next off season along with Jurco and Jarnkrok, who both right now occupy two of their top 4 on the prospects list.  Mrazek and Matha are the other two with Ouellet rounding out the top 5.



My point was, next off season all of Jarnkrok, Jurco and Pullkinen are out of exemtions, couple that with the 4 top prospects that are out of exemption this off season, the #11 spot and not moving up is not a good place to be when it comes to choosing one or two of those three guys in 2015.  Right now, if you had to choose two of the three, it would be Jurco and Jarnkrok. 



I don't think its fair to refer to Pulks as our #11 prospect, when you look at the guys ahead of him - Mrazek, Sproul, Oullet, Jurco, Jarnok, Mantha.....that's our top 6.  We just have unreal depth in our prospect pool right now.  Personally however, I would look to package him up because I don't see where he's going to get a spot on our roster (like a lot of our other B level prospects) no matter how well he does in the AHL, and 30 points in 38 games in his first pro season is pretty good.




ust looking at the pasts drafts and my god , still early but those 2 drafts could end up saving us painful rebuilding years

We could of drafted "maybe" our future top 4 dmen In the 2010 draft alone in Ouellet sproul backman marchenko

Our potential (star goalie in my opinion ) future goalie mrazek

Then add jurco sheahan jarnkrok pulkkinen up front ... Wow


B-b-b-b-b-b-but Holland sucks, and he trades away our first rounders!!!!

They're professional athletes, they're very competetive people.  That's why they do dumb things like bet 1000s of dollars per hole when playing a round of golf, "just to  make it interesting"

#2471033 Seasons half way, thoughts?

Posted by Nev on 06 January 2014 - 01:18 PM

The good - Pav, Z, Kronner.  The PK. 


Surprisingly good - Alfie, Lashoff.  Monster, Q2 Franzen.


The bad - Injuries.  Playing down to bad teams.  Injuries.  Roster management wasting the first 6 weeks of the season.  Puck movement in our own end.  Q1 Franzen


The surprisingly bad - Quincey, Cleary (did even their biggest detractors think they'd be this bad). Howards form.  Injuries.  The shootout.

Oh, and more scenes of random kids skating on outside. 


Preferably in slo-mo.

#2470837 Alexey Marchenko called up

And this probably belongs in the get.
But has anyone noticed how physical lash has been with people net front.
He's borderline dirty and I love it.
Not a top four in Detroit.
But nice to see.


Lashoff has been a real pleasant surprise this season.  There's been almost zero bitching about him, which is quite frankly amazing.  OK he's playing the fewest minutes of all our regulars on D, but he may be carving a niche out for himself - at the very least he's a reliable placeholder till one of the kids plays him off the roster.


Out of intrest, did Smith get an PP time last night with DD out?

NHL Player Safety ‏@NHLPlayerSafety 12m

Toronto's Joffrey Lupul fined $10,000 for cross-checking Detroit's Patrick Eaves.

FFS, that's less than he spent on his mom's Christmas present in NYC

#2470311 Datsyuk vs. Zetterberg

Posted by Nev on 03 January 2014 - 04:57 AM

Regular season - Datsyuk

Playoffs - Zetterberg


What I find interesting is that Zetterberg has a Thornton-Cheechoo ability to make his linemates better that Datsyuk doesn't.  Whereas when you put better players with Dats, their points and goals go up, but average players don't. Basically to play with Dats I think you need to have the skills and hockey IQ to take advantage of what he does, whereas Z's success comes in large part from his hard work and strength on the puck and you can stick almost anyone with him and make a decent line.


Hull, Shanahan, Hossa, Zetterberg have all seen spikes in their goals when playing with Dats.  Even Bertuzzi, I think plays so well with Dats because he still has the hands and the hockey IQ that Abdelkader doesn't.  Its why I think Pav needs more Aldredsson on his line.

Countries where players were born part of the rules in the OP. Seems you weren't paying attention to the "rules".


It would be fitting that you gave credit to the originator of your quote, instead of passing it off as your own.


Line: Aubry   Bissett  Brubaker  Bautin   Boileau   Bester


Yes, I wasn't paying attention to "the rules".  And poor old Sir Arthur Wellesley must be spinning in his grave at the thought of the use of an uncredited quote on the internet.

If we can out-shoot the competetion 43-26 every night, I'm pretty sure we will win more than we lose.  SO aside, I thought Jimmy looked strong tonight.


Reasons we lost


1)  Bernier

2)  Refs.  No misconduct for Lupul, ignored all the Leafs hooking and holding in the first 2 periods when we were outplaying them, bogus call on Kindl

3)  Bernier

4)  3 gilt edged chances landing on the stick (or not) of Dan Cleary

5)  Bernier

Really though, we gotta be happy with that period, spent a lot of time in the Leafs zone, had some good chances, shame they fell to Miller and Cleary.....


But how in the hell is that not 5 and a game misconduct for Lupul?
