#2602645 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by rick zombo on 28 April 2015 - 10:17 AM

A discussion…Ha.


Most of the prospects exist on many teams. i.e. Tampa Bay's T. Johnson.


Find me one team in the league that's had to draft from Detroit's position for the last 24 years that has better prospects. Feel free to use these as refernces













How about overpaying for Quincey?


Quincey's been good.


Resigned Cleary twice.


Kept his promise. Continues to exude organizational class. No harm done on the ice.


Overpaid and signed Franzen and Howard.


Franzen is not overpaid. Howard got fair value at the time. This is all on Howard for not keeping his end of the bargain.


Zidlicky is struggling badly.


Meh. Babcock has other options if he wants to use them. Kindl, for example. Didn't give up much to acquire him.


Nyquist looks small and lost out there.


Now you're just stretching


Never planned for Lidstrom's and Rafalski's departures. 


How can you? Without tanking like Florida, you're not getting an Ekblad or Jones or Hannafin. #tankit


Didn't figure out a way to keep Hossa.


IMO, his only major mistake.


Stephen Weiss is on the team but doesn't dress.


Holland's only other mistake. Part of that is on Babcock for not using him properly.


Does any of that ring a bell? Bother you?


Just the Hossa thing.

Posted by cusimano_brothers on 18 April 2015 - 11:28 AM

Good article appeared in today's Toronto Star on the procedure Mr. Howe went through and what they found afterwards. Quote of the article from 

Dr. Steven Cramer, a neurologist at University of California Irvine, who was brought in to look at the findings from his case:

“We don’t know the risk and we don’t know the benefits yet,” said Cramer, who plans a study using Stemedica cells. “Write your senator or whatever the Canada thing is and get these trials funded,” said Cramer, adding: “I do not suggest to my patients to go outside of the U.S. and do what was done here.”

I haven't had a chance to check it out yet, but Bertuzzi got a goal tonight in a 6-4 Griffins win over the Monsters.

I've got no skill in this area. It would be great too see someone come up with Steve fighting Holland. Considering Steve was suppose to be our GM.

#2591882 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 10 April 2015 - 12:18 AM

Babs says he is going to have a beer and decide who starts the last game...


Is there any chance he goes with Mrazek in the playoffs?


The two main differences between Petr and Jimmy right now seem to be puck-handling (in favor of petr) and experience (in favor of jimmy).


It was nice to see Jimmy playing so well the other night and in the shootout. He seemed to be getting his confidence back, and just in time. I thought he would have been the obvious choice. But now, who knows.


If the knock against Petr is a lack of experience, well, there is only one way to change that. And I think his puck-handling would be a huge asset in the playoffs. 


It's a tough call because they've both been letting in awful goals even when they play well otherwise. 


Watching the highlights from tonight's game, Howard made several huge saves.  But then let's in a couple brutal ones.  I swear it's like he's turned into Fleury.  


Mrazek seems to play more consistent throughout a game, you just don't know if it'll be consistently good or awful. 


I still think you have to go with Howard but on a very short leash.
