In Topic: Puck Daddy: Trotz is probably out in Nashville

09 April 2014 - 03:29 PM

He'll have no issue finding another job.  That guy has done incredibly well despite having scant resources to work with.  I'm not sure he'd do as well in Toronto, where the pressure valve is turned up to 11.  I'd love to see what he could do with all the talent in Edmonton, though.  Talk about a change of venue!


I hate to say it, but if we ever lost Babcock, I'd hope Kenny would give a long hard look at Trotz for our squad.  He's a coach.

After the Legwand deal Holland needs to be canned, but I guess the dream of Stevie coming to replace him is a pipe dream now.


FYI since joining the Wings


Legwand: .56 ppg


Jarnkrok .75 ppg

Get over it.  They're not even close to the same players.  Legwand is a three zone centerman with tons of experience.  Jarnkrok is an unproven, but promising playmaker.  I'm not qualifying either, but to list that single stat as a means of justifying one's worth over the other is absolutely ridiculous.


In 1990 Paul Cavalinni was +38.  Yzerman was -6.  Again, I'm not comparing either player today to Yzerman or Cavalinni, but you can't judge a book based on the opening sentence.

In Topic: What is everyones second favorite team?

05 April 2014 - 10:41 AM

If the Wings aren't playing, my second and third favorite teams are automatically whoever is playing a great game at that moment.


As for the bigger picture, I suppose I tend to root for O6 teams not from Toronto or Chicago.  I've got a real soft spot for the Habs.  Outside of that, I'll tend to root for the Isles, Sabres or Tampa, although Tampa is only because of the Detroit connections -- not because I actually like the team.


You know what?  I just like watching good hockey, no matter the team.

What we should do (and the only logical thing to do at this point) is buy out Zetterberg. It's the only way we'll stay competitive the next 10 years. He's a locker room cancer, doesn't produce, I'm sick of him...




Maybe this is management's wake up call and after Z, we'll take care of Pavel 'one-dimensional' Datsyuk and Niklas 'soft' Kronwall

You just broke my sarcasm, and it hurts.

Yes, that was my point. I was making a funny

I know, so was I, with the meta comment.  Mine was admittedly less funny.  I chuckled at yours :)


it would be really weird if Yzerman was the only player not joining this. I think for the first time ever, I would be pissed at the icon of the Red Wings

Bah.  He is the face of another NHL team's front office now.  As much as I would love to see him play, I understand why it won't be happening.
