#2107209 Thoughts on Salei

Posted by russianswede919293 on 30 January 2011 - 07:44 AM

I have a love-hate relationship with Salei.

He has moments where he plays outstanding and makes life great.

Then he has plenty of moments where he pinches at inappropriate times and misses the puck and his man causing plenty of odd man rushes.

He is a good value for what he is.

But I would rather still have Lilja.

I wonder what ASSets Carissa Thompson has that she was able to get that job.

Oh yeah... I went to a Lions game a couple years ago when she used to work for FOX NFL and sat front row right next to the Lions end zone. I don't really like football but I have to say that to watch her from behind as she walked was the only part of that afternoon that made the whole experience worth my time. Mm-mmm...

its amazing to see Weber hit 104.6, I can see Chara because hes huge and can generate a ton of power but for a guy Webers size its pretty damn amazing.

#2104608 Savard Out Indefinitely

Posted by ChelisChick on 24 January 2011 - 09:52 PM

On Vs. Brian Jones was saying he thought Savvy should retire. Engblom agreed. And while I know it would be the best for him health-wise, it just KILLS me.

Makes me want to castrate Matt Cooke with a pair of rusty nail clippers. Dipped in paint thinner. With flaming match-heads attached.

#2103303 Trade for a new back up?

Posted by Nicholonio on 22 January 2011 - 03:39 PM

That's the problem with some of the posters on this forum, they don't understand discussion. Even if things are long ranged, it's a nice thought to talk about. Discussion is better than nothing.

Hedberg would be a nice thought, but Jonas Gustavsson I think I'd enjoy more. He's lost all his confidence while playing with the Leafs (in my opinion), and before he lost that, he was doing good. So why not boost your confidence while playing with the best Hockey team in the NHL? :-P

#2103983 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by Mors on 23 January 2011 - 05:53 PM

Good for Nabokov.

This isn't just about being claimed by a perennial bottom feeder, it's about being claimed by one of the most poorly managed franchises in all of professional sports. How can anyone blame the man for not wanting to deal with the consistently bad decisions made by Garth Snow and Charles Wang? Of all the teams to possibly be claimed by, the Islanders are definitely a nightmare for any player.

#2103720 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by gcom007 on 22 January 2011 - 10:30 PM

Anyone want to still try and suggest that Howard's not skating on thin ice with the Wings?

"The Nabokov thing was an opportunity for us," Babcock said. "If it had happened, it would've helped our goaltending because we have no Ozzie. Also, it's a message to everybody — the league's in constant change. If someone can take your job, they take your job. When you're a goalie and you give up four and the other guy gives up one, you don't like that."

From The Detroit News: http://detnews.com/a...m#ixzz1BpBUqOSY

As I've repeatedly said, this absolutely has at least something to do with Howard's play of late. It may not be the only reason, but it's no doubt part of the reason. They weren't too vocal about it before, but Babcock couldn't be more clear with the message he's sending in that quote.

That said, I repeat, I think it's very good that we didn't land Nabokov. Sure, Jimmy's struggled this year, but we know what he's capable of. This year will probably end up a wash for him, but it's experience, and even if he were to lose the starting role to Osgood, it'd be far more likely that the Wings would still sign him next year, and likely at a better price than we were expecting earlier this year. If he lost the job to an outsider, he's gone. I don't think either party would go above and beyond to make a deal happen.

But if he can hold it together well enough and doesn't chase starters money over the summer, I think he'd likely be a much better goalie in his 3rd season. He's learning a lot about the ups and downs of the NHL this year. He's got to be aware of the fact that he's got some glaring fundamental problems that he needs to improve upon, and after this year, he might be more likely to put in a hard summer working on them.

I really believe that we dodged a bullet by not getting Nabokov. He's not a long-term solution for this team, and our best chance at a long-term solution would most likely have been boxed out in the short run. It's just not worth it.

Dear God, I have missed Pasha so damned much. And you can tell it's not the same without him out there. It'll be so good to see him back!

Great news. I think the DJ at The Joe should play this song Feb 4th, their first game back at home.
