#2682888 This year vs last year: a poll

Posted by anthonyn66 on 11 July 2016 - 08:50 AM


What is their ceiling?  30?  They're small, soft euro trash.  Useless in the playoffs.


Let's try and remember that the original Euro twins took time to have a major impact in the playoffs as well. Zetterberg wasn't an impact player in the playoffs until 05-06 (3rd season), Datsyuk 07 (6th season). There's definitely a learning curve in the playoffs.

SKA St. Petersburg has our prospect, Kadeykin. Hope some of Datsyuks magic rubs off!

The fact that AA is only on the ice like 3 times a period is a digrace

#2586306 Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

Posted by anthonyn66 on 28 March 2015 - 05:37 PM

Does anyone remember both in the 2008 and 2009 seasons when we went through absolutely terrible stretches towards the end of the season? Especially 2009 when the Ozzie/Conklin tandem was just awful? How about last year when the kids carried our team into the playoffs and disappeared after? 


All I'm saying is that the last stretch isn't as big of an indicator as we think.

#2577644 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Smith is not bad enough to sit. Marchenko/Ouellet will get sent down. Besides, if they want to trade Smith, making him a healthy scratch a bunch of times doesn't help his value.

#2576978 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by anthonyn66 on 01 March 2015 - 09:21 PM

Detroit got a top 6 forward and gave up a second and two prospects, not even our elite ones


Janmark is good, but we're so deep down the middle it doesn't matter a whole lot

Backman would be behind Sproul, Hicketts, Ouellet, Marchenko anyway so who cares


What matters to me is we kept Mrazek Mantha Larkin AA XO Sproul and Marchenko which is awesome

#2533600 Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

Posted by anthonyn66 on 03 August 2014 - 07:43 AM

Subban shoulda gotten 8, he's not better than Doughty/Weber although he benefits from having a Norris to his name


The comparisons to the Kane/Toews deal are sort of valid, but at the same time, let's keep in mind that Kane and Toews are two of the most popular, recognizable players in the NHL.Chicago has the biggest bandwagon fanbase in the NHL and if you lose Captain Serious and Kaner, you lose a whole bunch of revenue. 


Montreal likes Subban but they'll always have a fan base and it wouldn't be the end of the world if they lost him.

#2529828 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by anthonyn66 on 03 July 2014 - 04:17 PM

I've seen Datsyuk's rookie highlight reel a bunch of times, and after watching Tatar's, I will be royally pissed if they trade him. The reels are very similar: a bit worse defensively, same shifty moves, a harder shot, both great in corners, and plays with a lot of heart. He's no "soft euro".
