#2262870 2/25 GDT : Avalanche 4 at Red Wings 3

Posted by RedWingsRox on 25 February 2012 - 10:21 PM

yes, Mule's playoff rep is the only reason I tolerate his regular season mediocrity, he could score 40 if he showed up every game and used his size to his advantage more, but since he does do that in the playoffs he gets a pass; Hossa on the other hand has not put up the playoff numbers to justify his contract, which is pretty much just as bad as Franzen's iirc


We should keep Franzen in GR and call him up around March to get him ready for playoffs.


#2262462 Vancouver sweeping the rug?

Posted by RedWingsRox on 25 February 2012 - 05:12 PM

OK, so I'm from Vancouver and I despise the Canucks. I think the management is putting Ballard on "LTI" so that they can free up some cap room for a late acquisition but I don't think he is seriously injured. Something looks suspicious if you ask me. He was never a favourite of AV, Gillis gave Ballard a stupid contract. This is one way to sweep him under the rug.

One reporter - Ballard injury described as "upper salary." Out indefinitely @TSNBobMcKenzie VAN put Keith Ballard on LTIR, creates $4.2M in cap space.

Looks like Ballard is experiencing 'capcussion'.

Thinking back to this whole game and trying to be objective and not homer, we were lucky to be leading 3-2 with a few minutes left in the 3rd. Up until that point, we were outplayed. Having said that, if we do have a 3-2 lead with 20 secs, we got to lock it down. Definitely miss #13's defence and shootout skills.

It will be a nauseating day here tomorrow in Vancouver. But we're still #1 point wise.

I SAY: we neeed a sniper.


Selanne fits the bill. Unfortunately, Anaheim is only 6 pts from 8th spot and think that they can still make it. They're going to have to decide this week.

They only scored 1 against Nashville so maybe 1-1 at the end of regulation and then Bert's spin-o-rama to celebrate his new contract and stick it to his old team ??? Maybe, just maybe?

Please keep the streak alive. I rather we lose to Columbus to end the streak than to Vancouver. I don't think I could stand listening to the crap the day after on the radio talk shows here.


#2260573 Bertuzzi Contract Extension

Posted by RedWingsRox on 22 February 2012 - 10:36 AM

I like Bert and what he's brought but don't know if he has that much more gas in the tank. Heavily loaded in the back meaning there is a possibility he might play only 1 more year and then retire?

This isn't our trade deadline acquisition, is it :lol:


#2259869 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by RedWingsRox on 21 February 2012 - 04:51 PM

Looks like some kid named Quincey is thanking his lucky stars.
Agent to Kyle, 'You've been traded from Col to Tampa.'
Quincey, "Oh ...".
Agent, "Wait, you've just been dealt to Detroit" ...
Quincey, "OMG, is this for real? Tell me I'm not dreaming!"

#2258394 Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game.

Really? You took the effort to register for an account to post that?

Love the fact that both Detroit and Chicago have a streak of their own going :P
