If he stays or goes I wish him the best.


#2606116 Jim Devellano on Mantha's play: "Very disappointing"

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 05 May 2015 - 01:25 PM

Nice to see Mantha responding a lot more thoughtfully than Jimmy D did.  

 

I can imagine Holland facepalming when he heard Devellano's comments.

He played over 80% of the regular season games and all of the playoff games so far.

 

I'm not necessarily in support of the comment - at the least, the "very, very, very" could have been excluded.  But, 'disappointing' seems... appropriate.  Who knows what motivates this kid, though?  Maybe it lights a fire under him and he lights Rockford up in the next series.

62 of 82 is between 75 and 76%.

 

He played 3/4ths of the season while trying to come back from a broken leg and adjust to pro level hockey. His stats (62gp,13g,18a,33pts) are actually really similar to Tatar's (58gp,16g,16a, 32pts) first year in GR. I'm not overly worried yet.

Pretty stupid comments by him no matter his intentions. There are much better ways to motivate a player than by completely dismissing him after one half of one pro season.


#2605103 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by kipwinger on 30 April 2015 - 03:08 PM

 

How do you define "competitive"?  Making the playoffs every year and losing in the early round?

 

If so, then I agree that we're competitive.

 

Since when do we need to measure team success against Edmonton and Buffalo?   

 

How often would we need to win the Cup for you to consider our organization "competitive" if we aren't now?

Maybe he gives a s*** about this team and wants them to do good.  

 

Yeah, too often being pissed at losing is construed as negative. I'm pissed we lost, and I want us to get better. If trading Nyquist could get us a big winger who could help out Z/D in the playoffs, then lets do it. Standing pat does nothing, we showed we're close. Need some more pieces.

Ok one more post, just because I prepared for Kindl's decent game during the first and didn't get to use these and may not get to use them if he gets traded:

yes, but the outcome still hurts i was wrong however, i said it would be 2-1 tampa tonight.

Yeah...It does...But the Wings seemed to play themselves outta a few games in this series, and lets be honest - TB is a good team...They may very well take Montreal to 7 games as well.

Been watching since the beginning of the streak, still doesn't sting any less after elimination. 

 

Another season come and gone, let's hope for some changes and a fresh start next year.

 

Let's keep the GDT civil in the coming days here regardless.

If you stare at the stats then everyone jumps on Nyqvist but he was a hell of a lot better than Tatar. He's always in on the puck and getting zone time. Tatar has no forecheck to his game and kills all offence if he's actually handling the puck and he also saved his worst game for game 7. He still dourest know how to play playoff hockey. Gus was good, sometimes it doesn't translate on the stat sheet, much like most of our forwards

31 SOG vs. 17 SOG ... and we lost.  One of those nights.  Imagine if we had Kronwall.

Stats are for math freaks.

The ol eyeball test says Smith is train wreck that landed in a group of dumpster fires


#2596491 J Ericsson - really?

It's funny to me that Ericsson gets killed every mistake he makes but dekeyser who makes plenty of mistakes gets a free pass
