God I hope they don't demote Jurco.  Nestrasil isf****** garbage.  I have no idea why anybody thinks he'd get claimed off waivers (not that you're saying this, but I've had the 'don't want to lose Nesty for nothing' discussion about 200 times this week).  They need to get that kid out of the lineup.  He's clearly not ready to play in the NHL and is just another one of Babcock's pet projects. 

no I  know what you mean Kip it gets redundant with him I don't care for him that much either and Jurco has much more value on this team rather see a lineup like this

 

Goose Z Franzen

Tats  Dats  Abby

Shehan Helm Jurco

Miller  Glendening Andy




#2543554 Myers close to become a wing?

Posted by krsmith17 on Yesterday, 04:56 PM

I don't think anyone is saying he's worthless... I'll speak for myself and say that he definitely is not worth that deal in my books.

Get rid of Jurco for Myers? You're kidding right?


#2541460 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

That's why they are professional athletes, and you are not.  They don't think the same way as the rest of us.  

I mean, Brad McCrimmon literally gave his life to realize his dream of being a head coach.  I would say that nearly every NHL player in the league if given the choice of sitting in the press box every night or getting regular playing time would pick playing every single time.  

 

As we have seen countless times with free agency, players don't always pick the most competitive or the hippest city to play in.  I would think most, if not all of them believe they will make the difference in the team and be a part of a turnaround.

 

McCrimmon gave his life to be a head coach?  Are you suggesting that he somehow knew he was going to die, but did it anyway to realize his dream?

 

Or are you exaggerating for effect?

 

It's probably a little more accurate to say "he died doing what he loved", or "he died after realizing a life long dream".  He didn't really "give his life" for anything as it implies he volunteered to die.

Yeah, right. Because regular season is 3 games long.




#2541417 10/15 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

I'm thinking we see Weiss next game. 




#2540788 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

The grit and size should clearly show he was being sarcastic.

Not to mention two of of three biggest players franzina and kindl at like they're 4 foot 11.

 

I'm probably going to regret posting this:

 

Have you watched Franzen play this year?




#2540791 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by rrasco on 15 October 2014 - 10:53 AM

 

I wish this was the case, but media outlets were reporting that Buffalo was starting the conversation with one of Gus, Tatar, Jurco or Mantha.

 

And that makes it not worth it for an underwhelming $5M defenseman.  We have D prospects, why trade away our goal scorers for another logjam at D?




#2540671 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by WingsallTheway on 14 October 2014 - 04:28 PM

I'd like to see Meyers swapped for Quincey and Kindl.

 

Id like to see Cleary and Weiss shipped for Crosby and Malkin




#2539717 Kindl on the block

Posted by GoWings1905 on 10 October 2014 - 11:42 AM

Quincey does nothing at all offensively, but I can tolerate him if he doesn't turn the puck over and is somewhat dependable defensively. I still don't like the contract, but Quincey was fine last night. You shouldn't want a four million dollar player to be "unnoticeable", though that might be best-case scenario with Quincey.

First half Quincey from last season won't cut it. Anything since that point is pretty acceptable.


#2539630 10/9 GDT : Bruins 1 at Red Wings 2.

Posted by GoWings1905 on 09 October 2014 - 09:21 PM

Nice win! Great way to kick off the season. Franzen was terrific -- I have to give him credit because he was fully engaged.

I love having Smith and DeKeyser together. They complement each other really well as a pairing. I held my breath every time Quincey and Kindl were out there, but it's worth the price to have Smith with DeKeyser instead. Hopefully Kindl is just holding Ouellet's spot anyways, though I didn't think Kindl was all that bad tonight.

Jimmy was very strong in the third. People would have been all over his case (deserved or not) had the Bruins tied the game, so props to Jimmy for holding the lead.


#2538810 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by Echolalia on 07 October 2014 - 02:09 PM

Granato is the PP coach now.

Maybe the thinking is to have more of a staying at home guy with a strong shot at the blue line to reduce the risk to run into a breakaway. As good as I think Smith is on the PP he's also very offensive minded. Not a problem with a second defender, but if you are the only one the team could get in pretty nasty situations when the puck is lost in the zone.

I agree with this, and if Smith was on the PP, I wouldn't want him as the high defender.  But if Kronwall or Dekeyser was the high defender, Smith could work one of the walls.




#2538837 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

I think the real question here is where the hell are you guys getting these cool ass talking dogs?

The roster moves have pissed people off so much that they're experiencing hallucinations involving talking dogs. Way to go, Kenny.
