#2552692 Lines Thread

Posted by Jesusberg on 29 November 2014 - 08:30 PM

By the end of next season I would like to see:


Kronwall - Smith

Dekeyser - Sproul

Ouellet - Jensen



Trade: Ericsson - Getting older and still has some value (might as well get something for him) he also doesn't do much offensively for us.

Buyout: Kindl (nobody wants him)

UFA: Quincey - I don't think he provides enough offensively to be worth keeping over our prospects. Also I think he will want to cash in big on his performance this year. 

Honestly, I can't imagine any scenario where this happens. Kindl's going to be moved, that much is certain. I seriously doubt the team moves Ericsson, and I imagine they're going to let Quincey finish up his contact, unless they're in a poor situation at next year's trade deadline. I can see the team starting the season after with something similar to this, but I don't see them breaking up the D-corps that much during next season. I think one of those four prospects is going to be left out of that group, with Ericsson maintaining his spot.

I don't understand how it is so difficult to get rid of Kindl. There are plenty of teams out there hurting on the blueline due to injuries right now. There has to be someone willing to take him for a low pick at this point to keep XO in the lineup. 

Seriously, it makes you wonder. Tampa just unloaded 35 year-old, makin' 3.8 million per year, Eric freakin' Brewer for a 3rd round pick. I understand there's more term on Kindl's deal, and TB retained some salary, but still... come on. Can't get a 5th or 6th for Kindl?

Number 90 with another point. He may not be German, but I shall call him Uberweiss.

Or maybe he just hasn't play hockey in a long time.

This. If we're going to discredit the goal he scored 19 seconds in, we're going to have to discredit the sloppy play, too. Neither is a true indicator of how he's going to perform when he's up to full speed (should that ever happen). I'd like to see how he looks through 5-10 games, not just one.

I can picture his next interview now:

"Milan no get knocked out. Milan tired, so he fall asleep on Prout's hand. You say Milan lose fight!? Lucic smash!"

#2550775 Why is Kindl not playing?

Posted by Jesusberg on 21 November 2014 - 01:11 PM


:lol: Ouch



I feel like that Kindl line is something that someone at the Edmonton Journal thought up, and figured was hilarious. You put something in quotation marks, you can deflect any blame if it doesn't go over well. Don't get me wrong, he's spot on...

Let me ask you a question, Brett. Let's just say you have these millions... and you want someone to teach you how to manage the money. So, you hire someone to teach you, someone you think you can trust. References, work experience — it all checks out fine. But then how do you really know for certain... that your millions are safe with this stranger? I mean, can you ever really trust another human being, Brett?


No.  The answer is, you cannot.

Maybe it's because of The Office video I posted earlier, but I can't help but read this in Dwight Schrute's voice  :lol:

I love how everyone hates plus/minus until they can use it to bash someone they already hate.  If it's a stupid stat, it's a stupid stat always.

What!? You can't take it away from me. Lashoff is a +2.

Lash > Kronwall > Quincey

#2550265 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Posted by Jesusberg on 20 November 2014 - 03:57 PM

Why are people comparing Nestrasil to Cleary? Cleary isn't the reason Nestrasil got exposed and claimed on waivers. Cleary wasn't going to be waived, nor should he have been. Cleary brings so much more than what he shows on the ice to this team, the experience and leadership he provides, on and off the ice, can't just be replaced, and certainly not by a 23 year old kid. If not Nestrasil, Jurco would have been sent down, and maybe in hindsight that would have been the better choice. But where is all of this upside that everyone sees in Nestrasil? I just don't get it. He was a body on the ice for 13 games, a big body sure, but that's about it. He could barely crack the Grand Rapids line up last season and to be honest should have never cracked our lineup this season. It would have been nice to see him clear and provide some support down in Grand Rapids this year but in reality he probably never would have cracked the Wings lineup on a full time basis, not this year, not next year, not ever. We have a ton of more skilled guys knocking on the door, he will not be missed. We even have a player that we signed in the offseason who is similar in stature but much more skilled, in Tomas Nosek. Good luck in Carolina Nestrasil, unfortunately you will probably end up down in Charlotte after 30 days...

Ok, but let's play a game. Play, Bench, Waive for Cally, Cleary and Nestrail. GO!




Am I the only one that thinks Cleary has looked fine so far this season?  Better than Nestrasil even?


No, he has. Even without his two points, I think he's done more in terms of puck protection and keeping it in the offensive zone than some of the others.

They shouldn't have been handling his money in the first place.  I'm not sure why that's so hard for people to pick up on.  Do any of you have a joint bank account with your parents?  Do any of you let your parents buy things in your name, or with your money?  When was the last time you looked at your bank account and thought "hmmm, mom didn't spend as much as I thought she would?".  Never?  That's because only stupid people let others (including their parents) spend their money. 

I never had a joint bank account, but my mother knew my pin number and if she was out running errands, would use my card if I had bills to pay and she happened to be going to the bank. Similarly, if I went out the buy groceries so she didn't have to do it, I would have access to her card and bank account. We didn't steal from each other, because we're family and not s***ty people. I understand  the concept of having access to a family member's money, but I don't understand the concept of using your family's money without their permission.

Well by all means, give him access to your bank account and be sure to seek his advice when investing. 


He's stupid for thinking that his parents could reasonably pursue his best interest financially, even if they did have his best interest at heart.  I don't know 10 people who can even balance a checkbook properly, and now suddenly your parents are competent to handle millions of dollars simply because they're supposed to love you?  It's idiotic.  Again, if you're a millionaire and you don't hire reputable, professional, accountants to handle your money, you are stupid.  Stupid, stupid, stupid. 


That's not even the point, but go ahead with that. There's a difference between smart financial planning and people blowing all of your money without telling you.





When I first saw the headline I thought "what a moron."  But reading more about it and hearing what his parents did puts  it in a whole different light for me. 


I had the same reaction.

He's an idiot? Really?

I can't speak for anyone else, but the last person in this world I'd expect to screw me over financially is my mother. It's one thing to be awful with money, but what they did with his money goes beyond being financially irresponsible - they milked the **** out of him. They treated him like a cash cow and ran his debt into the ground. The amount they spent/lost has more to do with their greed and taking advantage of a situation than it does with making smart decisions. Disgusting on their part.

I use griffinscentral.com, too. I really wish someone closer covered the prospects on a game-to-game basis, but maybe the demand just isn't there. I'd love to read about how all of the prospects look more often.

#2549517 Myers close to become a wing?

Posted by Jesusberg on 17 November 2014 - 08:05 AM


He's not anything close to Mantha (yet). Grouping those two together is overrating Larkin. Mantha is the only true untouchable prospect in our system.

Grouping them together has more to do with Detroit's need for depth at C than anything - Mantha is clearly the superior player. I'd say it's more like mentioning the two players as being off limits for trades, not necessarily for the same reasons. I'm just talking about not giving up a player based on his relative value to this team. Outside of Larkin, the team has Janmark and Athanasiou if he winds up playing C.
