#2199308 Backup Goalie?

Posted by Kira on 19 July 2011 - 09:59 AM

My dog could probably guard the net better than Turco. Ray Emery is just too much of a gamble. Better the devil we know than the one we don't...that's why I like the idea of Ty Conklin coming back. At least he's a proven commodity.

26 pages and I see there is still talk of trading Filppula for Semin? If we need to improve defense, trading one of our best defensive forwards isn't the answer.


If the Wings can get away with trading one of Flip or Hudler for Semin, and not give up any top prospects or first round picks, then that's something to be considered. The Wings have several forwards who are as good or better defensively than Flip, and he is not among the team's best PKers. Flip for Semin as the only roster players doesn't harm Detroit's PK, but improves the PP. Maybe the lines could work out like this:

Semin/Datsyuk/Bertuzzi
Hudler/Zetterberg/Franzen
Cleary/Helm/Eaves
Mursak/Abdelkader/Holmstrom

If it's Hudler instead of Filppula, maybe it works out like this:

Semin/Datsyuk/Cleary
Franzen/Zetterberg/Holmstrom
Abdelkader/Filppula/Bertuzzi
Mursak/Helm/Eaves



#2198618 nashville's new home jersey

Really because I think it would be embarrassing to use a lame nickname for your city that tells what you do well as a basis for a sports logo or sweater...

:D :D :D :D :D

Honestly it is a huge step forward, but that logo is still awful. Reminds me of the Nucks last update. :sly:

BTW, sarcasm folks about our logo.

No hate here, it is the best logo ever.



that is not the best logo ever.would hate that on the front on my jersey.

Isn't there a thread already about this? Or is this another excuse for Nashville trolling?

Not related to this topic at all, but I find it funny that this comment gets so many +1 votes now that its summer.

If this same comment had been made during the finals, when almost everyone here was on the "Yay! Go Boston!" bandwagon, it would have gotten like -30. :)


I think the general consensus was less "go boston" and more "f*** vancouver, I hope they burn in hell". We just picked boston because most of us dislike the canucks more than we dislike the bruins.

But just so I can get this straight, you think Hudler is a *****, right? And you want to replace him with Semin? Can I get you to confirm for me that you'd rather have Semin than a *****?


I don't disagree that they are but huge pussys, but at least Semin's ***** squirts and I can enjoy it more! :blink:

Hudler is just a useless dried up ***** that not only doesn't hit or battle for the puck, but cannot score for crap. So they are both pussys, but Semin at least scores...and unlike Hudler, if you put Semin on Datsyuk's line, he will flourish...

Creepy ass response, but I completely agree with the player comparison.

I'd bring on Semin for a 1 year (tryout).


#2198426 Holland becomes US citizen

Posted by F.Michael on 14 July 2011 - 01:21 AM

Stings a little I won't lie Kenny. I get it, and still respect the sh*t out of you, but not in that good ol' Canadian way I used to.

I consider myself a dual citizen (even though it's not "official" <_< )...I love hockey, Tim Hortons are yummy, Molson is pretty good brew, I prefer CBC/TSN/Rogers (although Ken and Mickey are good lads), I know the Canadian national anthem by heart, Harper is the PM, and I speak "Canadian" fluently - eh?

Congrats, Kenny, on becoming a citizen of the Master Country.

ironic that the common consensus on LGRW.COM would be that datsyuk is better then ovechkin... seems like the homerism is overpowering the logic.
..............................................................
i just dont think a poll of hfboards or nhl would show people unanimously agreeing that datsyuk is better then ovie.


I agree with you that a lot of us Wings fans are going to be a little bias, and pick our main man Pavel.... But I don't think the stats that you are throwing at us are the only one's that matter... Sure, goals and assists are damn important but that's not what Datsyuk is all about, he brings so much more to the table in my opinion....

You pointed out many stats where Ovechkin was dominant over Datsyuk but there are also many where Datsyuk is dominant over Ovechkin... here is just one stat that I'd like to throw out there... Takeaways / Giveaways

Pavel Datsyuk

2006-07 (107 / 86 = +21)
2007-08 (144 / 68 = +76)
2008-09 (89 / 50 = +39)
2009-10 (132 / 73 = +59)
2010-11 (71 / 38 = +33)

Total Past 5 years = +228

Alex Ovechkin

2006-07 (67 / 95 = -28)
2007-08 (68 / 93 = -25)
2008-09 (60 / 107 = -47)
2009-10 (66 / 76 = -10)
2010-11 (48 / 59 = -11)

Total Past 5 years = -121

Something else that needs to be taken in account is the fact that Pavel can and does play in ALL situations... Datsyuk plays even strength, power-play, penalty kill, and the last minute of every game when his team is up OR down a goal, whereas Ovechkin plays even strength, power-play and when his team is down a goal (basically just in offensive situations)

Ovechkin is a much more of an explosive offensive threat but Datsuk is much, much better over 200 feet of the ice and I'd take a player like Pav over Ovi any day...

Think about it...this should be an absolute no-brainer. Who's got two Stanley Cups, and who doesn't? Who has three Selke trophies, and who doesn't? And who is getting up and coming players compared to them? Wanna take a wild guess?

Well, look at it this way. Ovie admitted to watching Datsyuk videos in his off-time. That settles it for me: Datsyuk, and has been for a while.
