#2376362 Top 6 fwd next?

Posted by AtomicPunk on 30 March 2013 - 12:23 PM

I'd love Ryan O'Reilly...I think there are still hard feelings in Colorado from the start of this season.  Especially given that next year we'll be playing Colorado a lot less, they should be a little more willing to deal with us.


Not that I think it will happen, but that would be amazing and it's somewhat realistic.

They can't move O'Reilly within one calendar year from when he signed, If I recall correctly.

#2375073 Ray Shero making the NHL his *****

A lot of people said that about Chicago too after their Cup Fire Sale, and they are still hanging around OK. (surprisingly). I have a feeling the Pens will survive just fine. (Unfortunately).

#2374993 Ray Shero making the NHL his *****

His team is on, like a 13 game win streak, and he has added 3 veteran players. He may have given up a few picks, but by the time they hit the NHL roster, the young stars they have now will be 30 and reminiscing about the great playoff run of 2013 fondly.


I root for the Wings. But I do admire what he's doing in Pittsburgh. I like aggressive GM's. Sometimes they make mistakes but they are trying. To me it's better than sitting by watching and maybe pulling the trigger at the last minute and paying top dollar.

How can they get rid of Murph and make us endure Darren Eliot? HOW?

#2370955 Perry Re-signs w/ Ducks

Posted by AtomicPunk on 18 March 2013 - 10:52 PM

How dare Perry sign with Anaheim? Didn't anyone tell him he was already being penciled into lines on LGW?

#2370194 3/16 GDT : Red Wings 5 at Canucks 2

Posted by AtomicPunk on 16 March 2013 - 10:15 PM

wow..is this game hard to watch on west coast time. Between those HIDEOUS Vancouver throwbacks and the sloppy play.

I think Vancouver, as an organization, has consistently had the most horrible uniforms, from the flaming skate, to the "V" of black and gold, to the orca, the only one I like remotely is the original stick in box logo. The rest are just straight up awful.

#2365341 Would you trade for Brian Campbell?

Posted by AtomicPunk on 05 March 2013 - 08:40 PM

No, but just because of the salary.

#2363896 3/3 GDT : Blackhawks 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Is our second PP unit really Franzen, Tatar, Abdelkader, Kindl and Smith? WTF,

#2359024 2/21 GDT Columbus 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by AtomicPunk on 21 February 2013 - 10:08 PM

Detroit has become a slumpbuster. Sad.

#2357268 No need to panic

Posted by AtomicPunk on 18 February 2013 - 12:56 PM

Maybes and opinions of experts only go so far. The jump from non-NHL talent to NHL talent is a big one, and then becoming a dominating, All Star team leader type player is another huge jump. Lots of players are supposed to be good or great and then don't pan out. I wouldn't bet too much on "the future".

#2314767 Ryan Suter agrees to 13-year, $98-mil deal with Wild

Posted by AtomicPunk on 04 July 2012 - 01:17 PM

MY problem with the whole thing is that he knew Lids was going to retire a while ago. Maybe not when, but he knew he had to prepare for that day. Maybe make a trade for a younger guy that could grow into his role and get 2 years under his belt before Lids hung it up. Is Smith that guy? No freaking idea. But to put all the eggs in the Suter basket is just desperation. And now he is holding the bag and looking for some plan C. I don't like that.

#2314749 We Need to Trade

Posted by AtomicPunk on 04 July 2012 - 01:08 PM

Too bad Kenny didn't think of throwing a 2nd round pick to the Ducks for Lubomir Vishnovsky like the Islanders did. Point man on the PP, done. Next?

#2314558 We Need to Trade

Posted by AtomicPunk on 04 July 2012 - 11:51 AM

Bobby Ryan would be my target. I know what they are asking for him and I would give it up, no problem. Guy could be solid here for the next 10 years. No brainer.

#2312409 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by AtomicPunk on 01 July 2012 - 08:34 PM

This move does not make us younger, hungrier, faster or harder to play against. And he didn't exacly light the world on fire after leaving here. Heck, he pretty much sucked. So why bring him back AND give him a NTC? I could see if it was a sign and trade for someone we REALLY WANT....but this really makes no sense. Get someone up and coming, not someone who's peaked already.
