#2675997 Datsyuk - someone who works for JLA told me he's sold his house

Posted by kickazz on 15 May 2016 - 01:06 PM

I looked his house up and it's still listed for sale. Price went down by $250k on April 27th though.




I'm like 99% sure that's his house. The agent listed is Milstein and the photos of the interior have all sorts of Red Wings pics like Hank/Hull/Datsyuk. Yzerman, and some Datsyuk jerseys.

Apparently Kazakhstan is not as good as Tampa Bay.

I will also add that although there might not be a correlation. Between his early struggles and later production Datsyuk worked on his strength and conditioning and went from about 178 lbs to 195 lbs. 


Nyquist gets swatted like a fly. So maybe he should work on getting stronger so he can create his own space like D and Z learned to. The whole Tyler Johnson strategy doesn't work for everyone.

Secondary scoring is actually extremely important.  If you don't have it, teams will focus entirely on shutting down primary scoring and then you are toast.  It is pretty easy beating teams in the playoffs who have very thin forward lines.

My point is that Nyquist can be counted on to score in the playoffs slightly less than your average 4th line grinder/plug. What was your point in comparing him to Datsyuk?


To show that the ENTIRE TEAM struggled to score, not just Goose. You're singling out one player over a TEAM issue. That's my point. 


Goose finished the playoffs tied for first on the team in goals. We had two players score more than one point. He was also a +2 despite scoring one point. So no, Goose wasn't the issue.


Put Goose on a line with a center who isn't 80 years old and a rugged winger who can do the dirty work and I'm quite confident he has a much bigger impact than a lot of players on the team when it comes to the score sheet. Playoffs included.

Great news on Firschweiler. I liked Bedard, but he's been here forever. Any chance Osgood takes over? Would he be any good in a coaching role?...

Gotta be better than Osgood in a broadcasting role. Anything to get him out of the booth.

Pulling big for Nyquist at the Kentucky derby today. Also been seeing on social media a lot of Wings fans there.

#2674487 This hits the nail on the head......

I am one of the BIGGEST Holland critic here, but I heard the excerps and then watched the entire presser.  The quotes are for sure taken out of context.


I think he means by "less is more exciting" and "if you expect Cups, you're in the wrong league" that when the fans realize they need to lower their yearly expectations, they may enjoy the seasom much more.  Now, I am not saying its ok to NOT expect a Cup, but we all know you just cannot win it every year.  He said we're here to win Cups not just make the playoffs, but the fans also need to realize that after 25 years of making the playoffs and winning 4 Cups in that span, you don't always get the best players in the draft.  Plus, the fact that the Cap is here, and instead of 4-6 teams being favorites every season, there are 25 teams that can make the playoffs and compete for it, so not landing the top UFA's like those 4-6 teams used to (or even be on a players "accept a trade to" list) is something the fans need to get used to as well.  Does anyone really think that if there wasn't a cap making virtually every team competitive that we'd have lost out on Suter/Parise or Niskanen?  When the wallet is bottomless and payroll can be limitless, we'd still be favorites every year.


I too, think that if all expectations to win a Cup every season, were lowered a bit, we may enjoy the competition to get to the playoffs.  He said, he plans on being agressive with trades at the draft, he is going to move younger players up the roster and bring up more kids from GR.  He said he needs to change the style and makeup of the team, and is already planing on NOT having Datsyuk.  He will trade the contract if he can find a taker but he won't trade it if that taker wants to deplete out minors or draft picks.  He is ok with taking the cap hit for one year to protect the likes of AA, Larkin, Bertuzzi, etc... and high draft picks.  I think he means it this time.  I think, even though ownership said that they support him 100%, that he was told, do something or we won't be so supportive in the near future...


I like that he said he'd like to have Helm, but he understands that he needs to make a family decision because this is a very important contract for Helm and is prepared to move on without him.  I really think we won't see any other re-siging of our UFA's outside of the possible Helm deal.  Also, VERY excited about his opinion that Howard has to be traded (paraphrasing) because he cannot have so much money in a goalie combo.  Something I've been saying for two seasons.



Here is a link to the entire presser for those who haven't seen it...

I don't think anyone is upset with that. I think some are upset with at least 2 of the 3 choices tho.



Are people really upset Larkin isn't a finalist? He's not one of the three best rookies. Period.

Why is everyone so anti-McJesus on here? Ok, so he didn't play half the season, but when he did he ended up with the 3rd best PPG in the league this year. Isn't that pretty good? I don't think he should get it because he didn't olay a full year, but you can't blame the league for nominating him when clearly he's the best rookie by a mile, especially coming back from a broken clavicle. 
I hate the NHL hype machine too, but you can't deny that the guy is a superior talent. Would Panerin have scored 30 if he didn't have Kane feeding him all year long whilst on a career year? 

I don't think they're against McDavid as much as they are against the joke shortlist that the league popped out.

Panarin - He's 24, turning 25 this year, and has played 4 and a half seasons in the KHL.

No Jack Eichel. Wtf? Five years younger than Panarin, second in goals and points amongst rookies behind Panarin, and in his first pro season of any kind. Nope, not included. Ok....

Not a big surprise, but Larkin's not among the top 3.
  Gostisbehere, McDavid, Panarin 

Sorry, I don't care.
