#2414090 Poll: If you could pick any 20 players to start an NHL franchise with.

Posted by Hey man nice shot! on 28 May 2013 - 04:33 PM

I'd build my team with the best combination to win now and later (i.e. young players with lots of prime left). Of course no concern for the cap, and I'll try to build it not like an all star team, but with "bottom 6" type players in the bottom 6 (i.e. good defensively and/or hard hitters). Here we go:
 
Rick Nash - Sidney Crosby - Patrick Kane
Anze Kopitar - Steven Stamkos - Claude Giroux
Mike Richards - Jonathan Toews - Dustin Brown
Milan Lucic - Patrice Bergeron - David Backes
John Tavares, Jordan Staal
 
- On line one you have the big power forward Nash, the flashy and speedy Kane, and the of course Crosby who's very good defensively if needed. The opponents will never be able to focus on one threat on this line as they can all score and pass more or less
- Line two is all centres but the wingers have experience playing there. Kopitar's defensive strengths will cover for Stamkos' pure offensive focus. All 3 of these guys are electric when on their game.
- Line three has two centres for important faceoffs, captain serious in between two other captains who are gritty and can hit hard. Richards is also one of the best in his own zone and on the PK
- Line 4 also has two centres, with one excellent defensive forward in Bergeron surrounded by two huge bruising forwards. You're gonna be hurting when you're out against this line.
- With Tavares and Staal in the press box you have two guys who can step into the top and bottom 6, respectively, if necessary due to injury
 
Zdeno Chara - Erik Karlsson
Duncan Keith - Shea Weber
Drew Doughty - Kris Letang
Alex Pietrangelo
 
You won't have to worry about matchups with this D-corps, roll them evenly as they can go head to head with the best in the business. Karlsson's offensive inclination is balanced by Chara's defensive one, but that's not a huge lean for either of them who are both very good at both ends. Keith and Weber are basically the perfect balance of top tier ability at both ends of the ice, as is Doughty and Letang. Pietrangelo is one of the league's best as well and he can slot in to replace anyone if necessary with minimal disruption.
 
Henrik Lundqvist
Jonathan Quick
 
Simply the two best goalies in the league today so it's an easy choice. However, If you're looking for a goalie who is more suited to the backup role, slot in Craig Anderson or Roberto Luongo instead as both have played 2nd fiddle for long periods and performed well when called upon.

I respect your opinion, then i barf in my hands.



 Cool, thanks.  I've been on Capgeek quite a bit, but I don't believe I ever tried copying the roster anywhere.  If we get another cap compliant thread I'll throw my Capgeek team in there.

Lol ya i did the same think and made a realistic team.




#2407212 Official Franzen VS Hossa

Posted by Hey man nice shot! on 19 May 2013 - 12:31 PM

In the end hossa plays for the hawks and franzen is a wing. Hossa doesn't bleed red and white therefore franzen is my selection.

#2393751 WCQF Game 2 GDT - Red Wings 5 @ Ducks 4 OT (Series tied, 1-1)

Posted by Hey man nice shot! on 02 May 2013 - 06:01 PM

I love Bert but Bert for Tootoo is shaky move!!!

Bert has had and still has Jacked up back and leg which was preceded by mono and NO games at NHL speed this year!

Impossible for him to be in playoff game condition.

I sure hope he sparks us and Has a great game but even in great shape he has always been prone to laZy hooking penalties and turnovers with those patented 1 arm passes.

I still think Toots is scared to play his game entirely for fear of penalties and riding press box next game.

Lets go Bert and Wings!!!!

Here's to adrenaline :)




#2386529 The Race for Eight: Blue Jackets, Stars, Wings

Posted by Hey man nice shot! on 18 April 2013 - 04:16 PM

 

I understand your frustration in the Wings decline, but the fact remains that the Detroit Red Wings are the LAST of an extinct breed called a 'dynasty' in any sport, nevermind just the NHL. Decades of winning hockey have greatly skewed all of our expectations for this team.

 

I'm not going to sit here and say you're wrong in your opinion or that trades couldn't have been made. What I am saying, is that as terribly perceived as things are at the moment, there are much MUCH worse scenarios and teams than the Wings right now. You lament a season that occurred 4 years ago, while a franchise like Toronto is just getting into the playoffs for the first time in a decade. I think some perspective is required with the situation in Detroit.

 

This 'class of the league' you speak of changes from month to month in the NHL now. The Red Wings dynasty of old is dead, and the longer that you try and hold onto that and believe that it can be recaptured, the longer you're going to be unhappy. 

 

What I am ultimately getting at here, is that there is/was no other team like the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL, so any rebuilding/re-tooling that this team does has ZERO blueprint. We've retired more Hall of Famer's in the past 3 years than some teams have retired in their entire existence in the NHL. Replacing them isn't a 1-for-1 deal and no matter who you bring in, they'll always pale in comparison to the Lidstroms/Rafalskis/Drapers/etc. These losses are meteoric for any team, let alone one with the history and pedigree of Detroit. The fact that the Wings are even in the playoff conversation is astonishing yet nobody wants to give the management credit for that, they'd rather see trades and action in an attempt to keep an already ridiculous playoff streak alive.

 

This cheque has been in the mail for a season like this ever since the Cup win, and now that the bill is here, not a lot of the fans seem to want to pay it.

#2368982 Trading up in the draft...?

Posted by Hey man nice shot! on 14 March 2013 - 12:02 PM

i wouldnt trade our 1st draft pick for anybody .. bouwmeester, yandle .. no one at this point who knows we can get a top 10 pick the standings are so tight

 

and i hope we make the playoffs but if there was one year not to make it , it be this year since the draft is so strong if we would get bettman to fix the draft for us like he did for pittsburgh and we can land seth jones wed get our #1 d man for the next 20 years + it doesnt feel like a real season since its so short so wouldnt be as bad

 

either way i wouldnt trade our 1st round pick id try getting another by trading filppula and hopefully a 2nd or 3rd pick while were at it through ian white

?
