He better play.....there's a bus load of fans coming down from St.Andrews & Winnipeg down to Minneapolis to watch him play.....theres a lotta love for this kid in our local area....the signs saying " Home of Darren Helm 2008 Stanley Cup Winner" are still up on every major road leading into the St.Andrews municipality!!

That is really awesome, I'm looking at getting a #43 jersey :thumbup:

#2119926 Osgood's status could prompt trade at deadline

Posted by stevkrause on 21 February 2011 - 01:23 PM

The day I heard about the surgery, I said I thought Osgood's career was over and my opinion hasn't changed - I think this is just another case of the Wings brass being smart and knowing that if they make it obvious they have a need, then they need to overpay... instead, they have Osgood play along and pretend he's coming back, even though they know he's not and he knows he's not and then they can make a quiet, under the radar move that won't cost us a ton and bring in a serviceable back-up, then Osgood announces his retirement in the off-season.

EDIT - plus, if he retires now, we get hit with his caphit and no roster player, whereas if we LTIR him for the season, we get cap relief for him and can exceed the cap by his value, while freeing up the roster spot... seems to me like Osgood is just "taking one for the team" like the great team guy he has been his whole career


#2118201 Lines I'd roll at 100%

Posted by Z and D for the C on 17 February 2011 - 10:31 PM

Franzen - Zetterberg - Bertuzzi
Hudler - Datsyuk - Cleary
Holmstrom - Modano - Eaves
Abdelkalder - Helm - Boogaard


I won't even comment.

HDC is the new hotness. Let it roll. Mule and Bert together though is another story frankly, but we will see what happens when Flipper comes back.


I'd try putting Flip with Mule and Z and see if that line can do well. The third line will probably suck, but oh well.

I always liked Bert as a Wing. I was happy when we signed him again because I had a real good feeling that on his end, he signed because he knew leaving was a mistake. Translation: he wouldn't be taking this for granted. He proved it last year and he's proving it even more this year. No better place than Detroit to find redemption and I hope he wins a Cup here. You can tell he's playing for that Cup, maybe this year even more than last. I love the effort he's made and I couldn't be happier to have him as a Wing.


This.

Bertuzzi has been fantastic this year, it seems he is really buying into the system, and getting very comfortable in his role. He is not floating in the defensive zone, and is playing a very solid 2-way game. You can tell that he is happy on this team, and he is motivated to win. I hope he can stay healthy and make an impact that he is capable of when it gets down to the nitty gritty.

#2116641 A brand new Flyer

Posted by Konnan511 on 14 February 2011 - 06:50 PM

he has more points than Filppula the last 2 seasons and i dont think kenny would give him up for a 1st and 3rd rounder, so i dont think they overpaid. maybe im wrong. i am a stupidhead after all.


He's 24 years old?

Holland would turn that down because Filppula is the better player. Filppula is superior defensively, but Versteeg has a slight edge offensively.

Yes, he's 24? Mike Fisher got the same trade value and he's much older.

Wow, they are going to completely roll over The Nucks in the finals.


Ahhh crap, games are played on paper this year eh?


#2116230 Isles vs Pens

Posted by LeftWinger on 13 February 2011 - 05:50 PM

well, I think I found a team in the East that I like now! :lol: :hysterical: at Talbot The Turtle (and from the way you got your ass kicked later, you should just keep turtling)

Fa-Q Mario! If your team was the one kicking ass and winning the hockey game, you wouldn't had said a single word! It's just too bad your whiney ***** Crosby wasn't out there to get his head ripped off!


#2114969 2/11 GDT: Red Wings 6 at Bruins 1

Posted by Nightfall on 11 February 2011 - 07:59 PM

Is that relevant?

I don't have to be a forward to critique a forwards play. Don't deflect simply to justify Howard's positioning on that goal.


IMHO, people who have played the game seem to have more relevant analysis when it comes to hockey. Thats just my observation though.

Do goalies let in weak goals or make mistakes on positioning? Yup. Just like defenses blow coverages and forwards turn pucks over. IMHO, if you are going to chew Howard out for crap positioning, then chew the D out for not covering the man in the slot. A lot of blame to go around on that goal, and the idiots blaming one party and only one party for that goal, is dumb.

He's right. Nobody cares much to see you whine.

What the?

We've got a Ritola thread from only a day ago, he scores tonight so I post about it, and I'm whining?
