#2183213 NHL local ratings for game 1-Nashiville tied for 7th

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 07 June 2011 - 06:14 AM

Yayyy San Diego for coming in 13th! No, seriously, we never get excited about anything around here, so that's pretty good for us. We did better than a certain city east of us which has a hockey team and a higher population, too, ahem. (Gosh darn it, can't we even get a minor league team up in here?!)

I'll never understand you folk that don't get the idea that the Wings could use a guy who'll drop the gloves with some regularity during the season. One guy taking a penalty here and there while giving the opposing team something to think about when it comes to taking liberties with our players certainly isn't going to cost us in the win column. AND HELL, I'm not even talking about a guy that JUST fights.

Hell, I'll even throw this little nugget out there for you to ponder over.

Seguin is healthy scratched last night in favor of Thorton. Sure, he might not be on the scorers sheet in the way of points... but I tell you what... his presence was felt and it certainly helped spark some team-mates and get some opposing players off their game.

I think a lot of it is because some of the posters on here only watch the Wings. While this is fine, I don't see how someone can make a valid argument for or against an enforcer if they don't watch the other 29 teams in the league outside of their games with the Wings.

Please, just stop "talking".

Did someone put a gun to your head and force you to click my thread...to read through my thread...and to respond to my thread?

Why did you post such a broken "description" of Pitkanen?

Just stop talking to me dude.

It's blueadams, man. Shoot first, ask questions later.

We need 3 more Datsyuks.

replace the much aged and often broken Rafalski, and get stronger and deeper up front by adding the much aged and often broken Selanne and Jovanovski? Am I missing something?

Yeah, I don't know what's up with all the Selanne and Jovanovski love. I understand that they are both talented players, but both are in the twilight of their careers - I really don't think that's the direction the Wings should be going in. They've got a real opportunity to add some youth to the roster. I understand the free agent class is thin, but I'd really hate to see them get older.

Kindl and Smith on the 3rd pair is a nightmare actually.

We're not throwing an offer sheet to Weber. And we're not spending that kind of money on a forward (Richards).

And if it's a dream, why would you trade Filppula instead of Hudler?

So let's summarize a little bit what we said during these gloomy weeks...

In order to have a stanley cup potential, the wings need:

- a 2nd line center/winger who can score and handle the puck well (Richard'd be perfect)

- a 25 minutes solid Dman (Weber is a dream...), 2 if Lids retires

- Eaves, Drapes (min salary) back and a solid 3rd line Dman (similar to Salei)

- trade flip or hudler

- keep Joey Mac

The lines would be:


Jiri Hudler ($2.875m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Johan Franzen ($3.954m)
Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Brad Richards ($7.000m) / Daniel Cleary ($2.800m)
Todd Bertuzzi ($1.937m) / Darren Helm ($0.912m) / Tomas Holmstrom ($1.875m)
Justin Abdelkader ($0.787m) / Kris Draper ($1.583m) / Patrick Eaves ($0.750m)

Brad Stuart ($3.750m) / Shea Weber ($7.000m)
Niklas Kronwall ($3.000m) / Nicklas Lidstrom ($6.200m)
Brendan Smith ($0.875m) / Jakub Kindl ($0.883m)

Jimmy Howard ($2.250m) / Joey MacDonald ($0.550m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $62,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $61,767,044; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (20-man roster): $432,956

Isn't it a dream team??? Up to you guys....

It was less than a second late, it was a clean hit, and even if you want it to be interference, they should still fine horton for not having a f***'s clue of where he was on the ice.

You're wrong...


This isn't the horribly dirty hit you're playing it out to be. It was an illegal hit, sure, but what's getting it attention is that Horton was hurt. If he weren't hurt, it would have been a two-minute penalty for interference and this thread wouldn't exist. Bear in mind too that many players are injured on clean hits.

How is "accordingly" 5+ games for a hit like this? One is not punished based on the severity of the injury.

Everyone in the hockey analysis world disagrees with you.

I agree with you on this. Yes it was a tad late..barely. was not a shot to the head. I think some people need to "re-watch" the video a little more close and not have the hate on for the nucks when watching. I think if any 1-2 games...thats it. But thats just me.

well there you go. 4 games.

Pitkanens physical? News to me.

Blueadams is a Wings fan, so he has a different understanding of that word. ;)
