#2105068 Enforcer Poll

Posted by Finnish Wing on 25 January 2011 - 07:17 PM

I support the players you listed, and I also support big goons who have no talent other than intimidating people and punching them in their faces. And no I don't care that those players don't skate well or score points.

Just being completely honest with my feelings on this.

I gave you a +1 for being honest.


#2104467 Trade for a new back up?

So, what's wrong with Larsson?


#2104192 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

"I dont see why somebody who has this opportunity would not want to play and fulfill his contract," Wang said. "It's nuts, right? I don't understand any of it."

Hmm, lets see... Maybe it's because you're the...

ISLANDERS!!!!! : DDD


#2103314 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

And if he doesn't report, then what?

Either Isles waive him which probably eventually leads to Wings getting him. Or they keep his 570k salary and get nothing but bad reputation among Meehan's other clients.

I mean if it were the Sharks or Blackhawks - just to prevent Detroit from getting him - it wouldn't been such a big deal. But cmon the ISLANDERS? : DDD

Garth Snow is a real player, I gotta tell ya.

Good Job Garth Snow. I'm sure this helped a lot in your future attemps of getting good FA's signed.

#2068821 Ville Leino

Posted by Finnish Wing on 26 November 2010 - 02:47 PM

It's really funny to read through these comments about Leino playing well because he's on a line with Briere and Hartnell. Shows that people really haven't even seen Flyers games. Seems like for some people it's hard to give Leino any credit just because it didn't work out here.


#2030045 Power Forwards

Posted by Finnish Wing on 29 August 2010 - 10:19 AM

LOL. Why would PIMs have anything to do with being a power forward? Power forward is a player who plays physically to create offense. PIMs are only evidence of taking penalties; you get penalties when you're too slow and need to hook for example. Fights are not needed either. Zetterberg isn't a power forward. Nash is. Nash mostly uses his size and physical game to create offense. Zetterberg is more of a skill-guy. I wouldn't call Steve Downie a power forward though, yet. You still need to be able to get more than 50 points at least in this league to be called one.


#2023100 Willie Mitchell

Posted by Finnish Wing on 06 August 2010 - 08:22 AM

As it's been discussed before - Kindl isn't exactly turning heads in GR...Yes he is improving - yet he's not exactly the guy many of us want to see paired with an already inexperienced Ericsson.

I'd much rather see a guy back there that has several years of NHL experience alongside Ericsson.

As said already. We dont have to pair Kindl and Ericsson together.

Lidstrom-Kronwall
Ericsson-Rafalski
Stuart-Kindl

Lidstrom-Ericsson
Stuart-Rafalski
Kronwall-Kindl

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Kindl
Stuart-Ericsson

etc. etc. etc.

There are numerous options.


#2023093 Willie Mitchell

Agreed.

Me thinks if a nasty stay at home Dman is added - it'll give Ericsson some confidence, and an idea of how to use his size effectively.

And Kindl - one of our top prospects - would sit on the press box. YAYY! Talk about being shortsighted.


#2012942 Shea Weber named Nashville Captain

Posted by Finnish Wing on 09 July 2010 - 04:17 AM

I would have preferred Wade Belak.


#2012478 Brett Lebda signs with Toronto

Posted by Finnish Wing on 08 July 2010 - 05:07 AM

I don't think he got that much overpaid. It's just that Holland always signs these bargain deals. Lebda was easily worth at least 1m on the market.


#2010305 Wings 2010-11 cap space reduced

Posted by Finnish Wing on 05 July 2010 - 10:34 AM

Now we can't get Kovalchuk. DAMN!


#2010264 Getflaf for Zetter

Posted by Finnish Wing on 05 July 2010 - 09:26 AM

I wouldn't want Getzlaf on the Wings, but I can say he has more value on the market because his potential is higher than Z's and he's already a great player. I'd say most GM's in the league would build the team around Getzlaf over Z. He's big, he's mean, he's Canadian.

It's America, baby.
