#2011326 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Jesusberg on 06 July 2010 - 03:49 PM

Just sign the contract Mikey!... Throw that pitch out with a Red Wings uni on :thumbup:


#2011322 Miller signs 1 year deal

Posted by Jesusberg on 06 July 2010 - 03:47 PM

So they were practically even in every stat except for hitting just like I suggested? I don't see what screams "Eaves is a better player" from any of those stats.


You said Eaves didn't outperform Miller in any way... he did, even if it was ever so slightly. I'd still take Eaves over Miller ten times over. Also, I mentioned better hockey sense and shot. You can't prove those things with statistics. I'd also argue that as a right-handed shot, Eaves is more valuable to the Red Wings because it gives them another look. It's fine to like Miller, but Eaves did outperform him in a few fields.


#2011298 Miller signs 1 year deal

Eaves is overrated on here. Sure he's a good player, but I don't think he outperformed Miller in any way last year. I'd say they finished about even. Both were integral parts of our PK last year.


Eaves:
22 Points
128 Hits, 44 Blocked Shots
2 Fights
2:16 PK Time On Ice Per Game

Miller:
19 Points
97 Hits, 47 Blocked Shots
0 Fights
1:49 PK Time On Ice Per Game

I'll take the first guy, thanks. Not to mention that Eaves possesses better hockey sense and a much better shot than Miller as well. I'm fine with the Miller signing, but Eaves is definitely the better player in my eyes.


#2011264 Miller signs 1 year deal

Because, I am tired of people trashing miller that he doesn't bring anything we don't already have... having 3 players that can kill a penalty isnt enough, and hes probably our best defensive forward on the team... he doesnt play a flashy high powered offensive game or fight, so he doesn't get noticed like Flip or some enforcer. Hes a solid forth liner, and I think the wings are a better team with him.


1. He doesn't He's a poor man's Patty Eaves. Eaves outclasses Miller in every field imaginable.

2. Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Filppula, Cleary Helm, etc... for fun.

I don't usually wish bad on other teams, but the Chi Town trolls have me annoyed still. Let's hope they have to ride Huet and the Wings take the Central crown back :thumbup:


#2010715 Kovalchuk may be staying in NJ

Posted by Jesusberg on 05 July 2010 - 08:25 PM

Hey, I got an idea... let's get this sweet offensive player who can score in many different situations, and we'll.... we'll put him on the point on the powerplay and waste all his talent. The Devils are idiots and if he stays with them, I can almost guarantee his point total taking a dive since they don't know how to properly utilize such an offensive weapon. DO NOT PUT KOVALCHUK ON THE POINT YOU STUPID B-HOLES!


Kovalchuk's bread and butter has been manning the blue line on the power play for years. He's got such a good slapshot, and when he's given the room he delivers. This isn't something the Devils came up with.

#2010504 TSN: Discussion of Modano To Wings

Posted by Jesusberg on 05 July 2010 - 03:37 PM

Is it normal for players to talk about an organization interest in you the way Modano does? Seems like all the "not a bad place to be" or "they're selling it pretty hard" is just a way to market himself to other teams. "If Detroit is interested in him then maybe we should consider him."


This is exactly the way I read his comments. It almost feels like he's posturing here, seeing if he can get a better deal somewhere else with better minutes, but maybe it's more showing Dallas that someone still wants him. He could just be bitter too, who knows.

Also, I doubt his jersey number is a huge issue. He could end up wearing #10 or #18... or something. My only true gripe with Modano is that he looks like Jon Heder.

I think someone liked the Getzlaf/Ryan skit from the NHL Award Show a little too much...

So much for my mental image of seeing Boogaard tied to Datsyuk and screaming at people.

I hope we sign Modano now because people are saying he IS a ******... then he comes here, puts up 40 points for 900K, saves some children from a burning building and then some of you guys can eat crow.


#2007137 Modano done in Dallas

Posted by Jesusberg on 30 June 2010 - 12:02 PM

Wouldn't mind him, but it seems like the Wings are going to retain all of their RFA's, plus Draper and Ritola... and maybe Maltby. I don't think there's room for what we have now, let alone another forward... best case scenario we cut ties with Miller, let Ritola go through waivers, don't sign Malts and extend an offer to an agitator/enforcer.

Bert-Flip-Mule
Huds-Abs-Cleary

Edit: Although, if Abs can drop the gloves more it'd work out fine.
