#2002563 Who Do The Wings Draft in the First Round?

Posted by Jesusberg on 22 June 2010 - 12:59 PM

Standing 6 feet, 5 inches tall. Weighing in at 215 pounds...

Dylan "The Villain" McIlrath!


#2001130 Mike Posner - Cooler Than Me

Posted by Jesusberg on 18 June 2010 - 01:14 PM

The idea of the jacket is cool, but the way he's wearing it makes me think he should be on that Jersey Shore show... ridiculous. Cooler than nobody Mike Poser.


#2001118 Good news for the Euro haters

Posted by Jesusberg on 18 June 2010 - 12:53 PM

So, just because there are some of us on here that would like to see some more big a gritty North American players in the league, rather than small (for the most part) and afraid of body contact (again, for the most part) players, we are hate Europeans? I think your title alone says that you have racial tendencies by calling them Euro's. I prefer white women in my life, does that mean I am a African women hater or a Asian women hater? So call me a hater because I prefer Dylan McIlrath over kirill kabanov....


Agreed. I drafted McIlrath in a mock draft I did recently not because he's North American, but because he's a beast. I seem to remember two players from overseas named Konstantinov and Fischer who could hit as well. It's just easy for people to point the finger and ***** about others being bias about their players; not everyone who likes North Americans is Don Cherry. And for the records, I like the white ladies as well... they gots it goin' on.


#2000899 Is Filppula going to be our 3rd line center...or 1st line winger?

Posted by Jesusberg on 17 June 2010 - 06:48 PM

Oh, right. Let's go over this:


Shooting:
Cleary: 20-30 goal scorer when healthy. Check.
Bertuzzi: 20 goal scorer. Check.
Abdelkader: Developing, but he has shown flashes.

Passing:
Cleary: 20-30 assists per season when healthy. Check.
Bertuzzi: Did very well last year in this department. Check.
Abdelkader: It isn't really his forte.

Hitting:
Cleary: Uhm, yeah.
Bertuzzi: Less than usual, but he showed flashes during the playoffs.
Abdelkader: Was one of our leading hitters in the games he played.

No offense, bud... but you're a moron.


This pretty much sums up how I was going to respond to this... minus calling him a moron. That might just fuel 3 extra line combo threads per week.

It would be time for a Falcon Punch


#1999519 Hudler+4th line grinder

Posted by Jesusberg on 14 June 2010 - 04:06 PM

The problem with Raffi are his turnovers and lack of size for his price tag - not saying I agree, I'm just saying I can see where some of the negativity comes from... with that said, I think he is GREAT for what he does, as you stated, and I really think both he and Lids would benefit GREATLY by splitting them up and putting a physical counterpart with them, not to mention, I thought Stuart and Rafalski complemented one another VERY well....


I completely agree with this. I think his play for the U.S. showed that when Rafalski is relied on heavily, he thrives. He almost respects Lidstrom TOO much and worries about getting the puck to him more. It also likely gets him into a mindset where he can screw up and Lids will be there to make-up for it anyway. I agree on the Lids-Kronwall and Stuart-Rafalski pairings 100%.


#1998205 Quenneville's House Gets T.P.'ed

Brett Lebda's last, and only productive move as a member of the Red Wings.


#1996394 Lebda to KHL

Posted by Jesusberg on 08 June 2010 - 03:29 PM

Looks like it was our Lebda.

From the article:

"Dynamo Minsk carried on negotiations with Detroit defenseman Brett Lebda. The American could become the fifth legionary defenseman on the Belorussian KHL club."

I read that as "legendary" and water came out of my nose.


#1996380 Bertuzzi offered 2 year deal

Posted by Jesusberg on 08 June 2010 - 03:14 PM

What is a conventional Red Wing?


He has bowed legs and trusts his eyes to Dr. Rahmani.


#1995934 Why Holmstrom

Posted by Jesusberg on 07 June 2010 - 04:40 PM

Because he's the mother****** Demolition Man...


#1995435 The right way to be a prospect of the Wings

Posted by Jesusberg on 06 June 2010 - 07:40 PM

Honestly, I wouldn't even have an issue with Brendan Smith if it didn't happen multiple times. The kid's got tons of talent and it'd be a shame if it got wasted because he got wasted.


#1995409 emmerton and mcgrath

Posted by Jesusberg on 06 June 2010 - 06:47 PM

Emmerton needs to have a better season next year. So far he hasn't shown much to merit getting a spot on the Red Wings in the near future. It would be nice to see him succeed, though. The team could use a 3rd line center.


#1993950 Holmstrom signs 2 year extension

Posted by Jesusberg on 03 June 2010 - 05:42 PM

Please, please don't be over 2 million...
