#2214483 CBJ's Rough Start

Posted by Jesusberg on 13 October 2011 - 10:00 AM

I took over a fantasy hockey team with Wisniewski and Mason on it, that's what happened. I jinxed the Jackets.

#2203435 The best deal that NEVER happened

Posted by Jesusberg on 12 August 2011 - 11:16 AM

can you imagine a mixture of yashin and red wings fans? oh dear lord, he would have taken the term "is lazy and sucks" through the stratosphere.

Sure, but having Damian Rhodes between the pipes would have softened that blow :ph34r:

#2198532 The easiest team to root for...

Posted by Jesusberg on 14 July 2011 - 02:10 PM

Detroit's easy to root for? Apparently, they haven't been to LGW during dry spells. Amirite? :hehe:

#2197911 2012-13 Realignment Leak?

Posted by Jesusberg on 11 July 2011 - 03:49 PM

Obviously, interesting to see that the Red Wings aren't included in the Central. Wonder if this is just speculation on his part, or if plans are really laid out already.


#2197852 Wings re-sign MacDonald to 2 year contract

Posted by Jesusberg on 11 July 2011 - 11:18 AM

Ends up where? As the backup? Are you serious?

I thought the same, but he's from Grand Rapids. So "here" refers to GR.

Didn't Larsson say he didn't want to play for the Wings or something? Like there was some sort of falling out or maybe he had an attitude problem. I was pretty high on him too until I read that or something to that effect on this board.

I'm pretty sure he said he didn't want to play in the AHL anymore, and would only play if he got a job out of camp with the Wings.

EDIT: In an interview with Aftonbladet he said something along the lines of: "I'm never going back to the AHL again. But I swept the carpet with Jimmy Howard during my first season over there and Chris Osgood is washed up so I will take the chance if they are willing to let me show what I can do in the NHL."

So that's where the "attitude" issues come from.

#2197669 This is why Commodore was the best signing ever...

Posted by Jesusberg on 10 July 2011 - 08:29 AM

The guy's most likely trying to get attention and page hits. Everyone been pro-Commodore 64, and now he gets attention by saying he shouldn't do it. Not even worth paying attention to.

Equipment Manager Paul Boyer says that if @commie22 wants to wear 64, it's all his.

-per Red Wings twitter.

Woo hoo!

#2192321 RFA/UFA Signings

Posted by Jesusberg on 30 June 2011 - 10:25 AM

Per Jon Rimer's Twitter:

Detroit Red Wings News: No deal with Wings and Patrick Eaves, & looks like he'll be testing the open market tomorrow.

Hope it's not true and he signs a late deal... for the right cap hit of course. I like the guy.

Oh... I'd say about tree fiddy.

#2179693 Ken Holland: Open to trade to replace Rafalski

Posted by Jesusberg on 25 May 2011 - 04:48 PM

Fair enough, and I would love to see it happen too. Usually those picks are harder to get than established players though...

The thing about a message board is everyone is going to want something different, and people are going to think each other's suggestions are insane. At the end of the day I'd WANT to see Holland add some kind of young, blue chip defender to the system. While that's almost certainly not going to occur, I'm also not going to settle for signing an old, worn-out defender who might help us for the next 1-2 years. At least, not until it actually happens. I'll have a small semblance of hope for an impact move that I'd prefer until it doesn't happen, and then when it doesn't I'll make the best out of what Holland actually snatches up.

I have a ton of faith in Holland, but I also feel that this is a critical time for the Red Wings' future. With Rafalski and Lidstrom (potentially) out and Kronwall and Stuart being 30+ years old, I'd think a young defender would be of the utmost concern. Guys like Kindl and Smith could develop (some might think Almqvist and Marshall too), but I'm not entirely sold on them. Either way, I hope that whatever he does can help the team fill the offensive void left by Raffi's departure.

#2179629 Ken Holland: Open to trade to replace Rafalski

Posted by Jesusberg on 25 May 2011 - 02:56 PM

Started by LGW members. Holland has categorically denied the Bogo rumors numerous times.

Wasn't started here. It originated from the Windsor Star's Bob Duff. Got it from his Twitter. Obviously, it didn't pan out, but it had a bit more truth to it than just being an LGW rumor.

#2178553 Brian Rafalski announces retirement after 11 NHL seasons

Posted by Jesusberg on 23 May 2011 - 04:37 PM

I don't like this one bit.

Agreed. 6 million in cap space is good and all, but the FA market is kind of dry and he's not going to be as easily replaced as some people think.

#2177083 Brad McCrimmon will not return for 2011/2012

Posted by Jesusberg on 19 May 2011 - 09:17 AM

Per Darren Dreger's Twitter:

"In an hour or so, the Detroit Red Wings will announce veteran asst coach Brad McCrimmon won't be back for a 4th year on the Wings bench."

#2170655 Bieksa Calls Out Diving.........By His Teammates

Posted by Jesusberg on 10 May 2011 - 10:08 AM

I have a friend who is a Canucks' fan, and he's just been absolutely driven insane by Bieksa. Says he takes a lot of bad penalties. That being said, he's really chippy and I think a PK tandem of Stuart-Bieksa would be awesome to watch.

This feels like one of those moments in the WWF/E where the guy extends his hand... and the face (good guy) waits and turns to the crowd to see if he should or not...

Just kidding. But seriously, Wings in 3.
