#2312037 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by cnot19 on 01 July 2012 - 05:26 PM

Ughhhhhh god damnit no Prust? Add Samuelson? God help me I do t think Samuelson brings much, to me he brings absolutely 0 entertainment value would have preferred Prust parros someone who at least does one thing real well or gives it his all. Why did I get my hopes up?

#2311297 The Grass Is Always Greener - Johan Franzen

Posted by cnot19 on 29 June 2012 - 10:39 PM

Im not a franzen lover however I take him for what he is. He's never gonna be a hard working power forward like gezlaf and the like. The guy has a nice shot good stride and a nose for the net. I'm not a fan of his softness and wouldn't oppose a trade. For me franzen is what he hs and will never be what he's not.Sure there re harder working players and better options, but it looks like we're stuck with him. His contract is also bad

#2310625 Shane Doan to test free agency

Posted by cnot19 on 28 June 2012 - 12:11 AM

Doan would be a great addition to the wings, someone who can really bring the pain on the forecheck and just goes all out 24/7,

#2310285 Steve Ott - anyone interested in getting him?

Posted by cnot19 on 27 June 2012 - 12:12 AM

yes,yes,yes. Bring on both Ott and Prust!

#2304193 Which Players Would You Choose

#2302553 What's the point of the crease?

Posted by cnot19 on 22 May 2012 - 05:27 AM

The most important thing about the crease is that it tells goalies where they are in the net. It helps them with angles and how far they should come out to challenge the shooter.

#2296649 Toughness and Snipers

Posted by cnot19 on 24 April 2012 - 11:34 AM

Add Parise, Konopka, and Prust

#2291865 What's Kenny Holland's Offseason Plan?

Posted by cnot19 on 17 April 2012 - 11:30 PM

Yes. We need a speed energy line with guys like Helm, eaves, and Abdelkader. Then a 4th line of grinders like Prust, and Konopka, etc. We need to be tough to play against again.

Not only do i think this would help us be a more complete team, but we wouldnt look dead when we lose. SOmetimes when the wings lose I am simply embarrassed and they should be too, real fourth line guys never quit and always bring 110%. Just from an entertainment standpoint it would be an upgrade, but adding to our fourth line would certainly round our team out.

#2291853 What's Kenny Holland's Offseason Plan?

Posted by cnot19 on 17 April 2012 - 11:22 PM

Add a top line scorer, then increase the size and nastiness of the bottom six. guys like prust, martin neil. The bottom six needs an identity, something it does very well, not this mishmash of players who suck, and do nothing overly well. Please bring in guys who will hit the hell out people, grind along the boards, inflict some pain on the other team. Our fourth line has becaome a ground for spare parts, not the true fourth line guys who actually bring one great aspect to the table!

Eh, agree to disagree. Hindsight is 20/20. You've convinced me what Holland should have done, but I'm not compelled that he made the wrong choice giving the circumstances at the time

I think this is a fundamental difference between alot of people. Id rather have a great player than two good players, good players are much much easier to come by, especially guys like Hudler. Either way youre right hindsight is 20/20 I was hoping wed get Hossa at all costs even if it meant franzen and hudler, but it went the other way. I always prefer the top player available because the second and third tier guys are easy to replace.

I dont see much positive about this postseason, besides Ericsson. Hes looked very good out there, taking the body, taking hits to make plays, and not turning anything over. Hes had some offensive chances as well, hopefully he can start to convert on some of those.

Ive never been a fan of Holland, and this solidifies my stance. You need to step up and take some sort of chance or risk with contracts whether its overpayment or not, this team had a clear hole and he didnt fix it

#2286187 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Posted by cnot19 on 14 April 2012 - 12:52 AM

i wish we could just add a guy like Chris Neil or George Parros to our team for next year, someone who could have made weber pay. Anyway, Id like to throw some love Bert's way Im glad he tried to do something about it, would have liked to see some more pain inflicted, but this at least shows the wings have some balls. Just a side note could you imagine the carnage if Bob Probert was still with the wings? As always makes me miss the old days of wings hockey. Good win tonight hope everyone had a good night!

I want George Parros, Matt Martin, and Brandon Prust next year, that is all.
