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?

Posted by cnot19 on 18 April 2015 - 11:45 PM

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

#2585536 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Rather than debate who is better and being reactionary, let's just roll with who wins.  Right now that seems to be Mrazek.




#2584189 Jordin Tootoo's Goal

Posted by kipwinger on 23 March 2015 - 08:45 AM

As always, glad to see Tootoo doing well.  He was a classy guy when he was here, and I'm happy to see him land on his feet.  Hopefully this season's effort will earn him something a little bit more long term from the Devils.  He probably wouldn't be a bad guy to have around during their rebuild.  He's got the right attitude and the right work ethic.  Probably isn't going to make a difference on the ice most nights, but could be a good locker room guy for the kids they'll be bringing in soon.

Putting up better numbers than Andersson and Miller.  

But we are the wings...we don't like that uncivilized toughness. We like to drink our hot tea with our pinkies in the air.

That was a nice goal.  I've been watching some Devils hockey since he went there.  I can't believe that we couldn't find a place for him when he was here.  He does much more than just pester and fight.




#2550142 CBJ's Jack Johnson files for bankruptcy

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 20 November 2014 - 12:00 PM

Not saying I'd trust him with millions of dollars, but you can't call him stupid for thinking his parents would have his best interest at heart.

He made a mistake.


#2550134 CBJ's Jack Johnson files for bankruptcy

He's an idiot? Really?

I can't speak for anyone else, but the last person in this world I'd expect to screw me over financially is my mother. It's one thing to be awful with money, but what they did with his money goes beyond being financially irresponsible - they milked the **** out of him. They treated him like a cash cow and ran his debt into the ground. The amount they spent/lost has more to do with their greed and taking advantage of a situation than it does with making smart decisions. Disgusting on their part.




#2545684 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Posted by Son of a Wing on 31 October 2014 - 11:35 AM

 

Eh...I don't think this has anything to do with UFAs, really.  Your own players are just as likely to get injured.  The Weiss situation is tough because he lied about his condition when we signed him.  Normally that wouldn't have happened.  The luck the Wings have had with UFAs is just that: bad luck.

 

Modano got his wrist sliced open.  Weiss misled us (supposedly) about an injury and sat out most of last season.  Samuelsson held us hostage because his boob hurt.  I mean, there really isn't anything to be learned by this. It's just a horrible fluke and we happen to have had three of them the last few years.

 

Are you just assuming this??  Everyone has a physical and a medical history before they sign a contract.

 

He was confident (as were our doctors) that he could come back from his injury and he hasn't been able to.  

 

That's not lying.  Unless you know something the rest of us don't.

 

I'm frustrated with the situation but I'm not going to just assume he lied because it's convenient.




#2544916 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Weiss is the type of player that is hurt by the current CBA's limitation on the amount of salary a team can eat when trading a player. Weiss is a perfect example of a player that might flourish on another team, but is relegated to the bench or the minors because no other team will take his contract. If the league allowed trades like in baseball, where the Wings could eat a chunk of Weiss' salary in order to facilitate a trade, both the player and the organization would be able to get a fresh start.  

 

The league does allow salary retention.


Up to %50. 




#2540671 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

I'd like to see Meyers swapped for Quincey and Kindl.

 

Id like to see Cleary and Weiss shipped for Crosby and Malkin

all Jimmy. Way to step up Howard.


A perfect shot by a great player and people are blaming Howard. That goal is all on Ericsson.
