#2353021 General thoughts: this team, its future, the league...

Posted by Jesusberg on 08 February 2013 - 06:25 PM

Who are these guys?


I'd like to look them up.


Not that I was the one asked, but they're Xavier Ouellet and Ryan Sproul. I'm a HUGE fan of Sproul.

#2353020 Franzen spear on Perron

Posted by Jesusberg on 08 February 2013 - 06:16 PM

I really hope that Mule's reaction was born from his frustration with his own play this season and that the hit was just the catalyst that set him off.  Maybe it will kick him in gear.  History says no, but I can hope.


To be honest, I'm not even sure what people are talking about in regards to Mule. I actually feel like he's been pretty solid. I could just be completely off here, but I feel like he's looking quicker than ever. He's nearly playing at a point-per-game pace, and isn't dogging it as much as I've seen in the past. We can all call the man a pansy all we want, but I think he's actually put up a good effort thus far.

I don't see anything wrong here... clean looking spear to me. 

#2349405 Nail Yakupov Goal Celebration.

Posted by Jesusberg on 31 January 2013 - 03:07 PM

I really have no issue with Yakupov or his celebrations; I simply don't care that much. What I do think, however, is that he just has one of those faces that you want to punch. I'm sure it's completely irrational of me to say so, but he reminds me of Joffrey from Game of Thrones.

#2341567 Bert is Back! Mono test was false positive.

Where did you hear this? 


Malik's mentioned it on Twitter.


I feel like this could actually be a good chance for Mursak to show whether or not he's got a spot on this team, or at the very least, show that he's a capable NHL player so someone else can put him to use.

Amazing job on the GDT.

As much as this one seems like it's going to hurt, I'm going to really enjoy watching some hockey again.

I've been sitting here thinking, "Well Z isn't gone yet, there's still hope."

Just awesome...

Seriously, these bad boys look like airplane wings.

#2327921 Monster All Padded Up...

Posted by Jesusberg on 06 September 2012 - 07:14 PM

While the entire album wasn't exactly received well by fans, I'd love to see the guys at the Joe play Metallica's "Some Kind of Monster" whenever Jonas makes a big save or does something of significance. I think it'd be pretty cool, and I'm not sure how often songs are used in response to something a goalie does.

#2327832 Monster All Padded Up...

Posted by Jesusberg on 05 September 2012 - 10:54 PM

He's a big goalie, but every goalie coming out nowadays is big. I just think it's silly his nickname is "Monster". Would have been more fitting 20 years ago than now.

I'm almost positive he got the name before he came over to the NHL. It was given to him because of his play (he did very well in the SEL), not his size/height. I read it in an NHL article somewhere when he first came over to the league. Could be wrong, though.

Edit: Looked up his stats in his last season in Farjestad. So I think it was because of his play.

Regular Season: 42 games, 1.96 GAA, .932 Sv%
Playoffs: 13 games, 1.03 GAA, .961 Sv%


#2327735 Franzen Trade Bait? Possibly!

Posted by Jesusberg on 04 September 2012 - 06:24 PM

Every one needs to just calm down. I drafted Mule onto my fantasy hockey team this season, so clearly he's going to score 35 goals... 30 of which will be GWG. He will not be traded, and we can all rest easy now.

#2327374 Oilers Agree to Terms With Eberle on Six-Year Extension.

Posted by Jesusberg on 30 August 2012 - 07:03 PM

This is a really solid deal for the Oilers now, nevermind in 2-3 years when he's even better. Good for them.

#2326487 andrei kostitsyn - worth a risk ?

Posted by Jesusberg on 22 August 2012 - 08:07 PM

Then again hanging out with radulov was a mistake alone on the part of andrei ... i cant see any bad influences he would have in detroit

Ha! His name is Jiri Hu... oh wait, nevermind...

In all seriousness, no need for another forward. As others have said, we've already got more than enough. The Wings need a 7th defender, not a 16th/17th forward.
