#2200503 Winnipeg Jets' New Logo

Posted by 13dangledangle on 22 July 2011 - 09:54 PM

I do think this logo would look good for a commercial airline.

This is what I was thinking when I saw it, I thought for a few seconds it was a joke. I know the old one is a little dated/simple but please look at the habs, leafs, bruins & wings logos, simple yet fantastic!

#2200266 Ok here is what I don't get

I hear you for sure, but it doenst make much sense to think about. It's like the butterfly affect, imagine you take the Sedin twins out and put in our Euro twins (D&Z) in they totally change the "facet" of the game, let alone changing the whole team. Besides I thought we went over this, San Jose we pushed to game 7 this year, next year we knock em out. We sweep Vancouver-if they make it-and bingo f*** you Boston!

#2200065 Grade Holland

Posted by 13dangledangle on 21 July 2011 - 11:15 AM


The only 3 d-men that I wanted, that we didn't go after were:
Bieksa - Re-signed in Van and never hit FA, nor showed a desire to go anywhere else
Wisnieski - Not at that price tag
Montador - Not at that price tag

As I've been saying, Holland did the right thing... the only black mark he made as far as I'm concerned is overpaying E, but even that was an effect of the market and he would've probably gotten more on the open market and we retained an asset... White was a bargain and fits nicely, Eaves was a steal and so was Conklin...

This has already been a good off-season and our team did NOT get worse, I can see an argument that we basically stayed even, but we did not drop in talent level... I still expect to see a trade before camp too and if not then, I guarantee one will come at the deadline...

I agree completely with this. For now the black mark over Ericsson is more of a question mark. If he comes out (not likely but he could) and plays wise like in 09 and tough like he showed he can then Ill even be happy with him. Its a long shot but I'll for one have my fingers crossed!

#2200049 Grade Holland

Posted by 13dangledangle on 21 July 2011 - 09:10 AM

I like what Holland has done as a whole here. He has kept cap space, has inked key players at key prices (Commy, White, Eaves, Miller, Conklin & I'll even say Ericsson although we all are on the fence a little) then he added a good core of minor guys as well (Joey Mac, Conner, Pyett, Exelby). When I look at the team on paper it looks real good, just jump onto a blueadams thread to see some lines for yourself.

What we need here now imo is a quality scorer. Continuing with the same non-handcuffing approach he has so far I wouldnt be apposed to inking Teemu for a 1 year deal, he's coming off a 31g and 49a season. I've never thought about him every coming here until this morning so who knows, but he can score so thats my starting point.

Edit: I give Holland an A as to the disasters he avoided by being cool hand luke in this years market. Good job Wings brass

Pfft. Bertuzzi would have gotten that guy when he least expected it. :ph34r:

lol. If you look back at that Howard/Crosby incident you'll probably notice how luck Crosby was that it was Jimmy who got to him first. An angry looking Bert was well on his way in.

#2199746 Red Wings sign Ty Conklin to 1 year contract

Posted by 13dangledangle on 20 July 2011 - 09:12 AM

This is suppose to be a welcome back Conks thread and it's morphed into a Howard bashing thread? Ridiculous...

....That aside it's pretty awesome to have Ty back, I felt bad for him St. Louis. I really like the Howard/Conklin tandem, very good news for us. :thumbup:

#2199344 Backup Goalie?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 19 July 2011 - 11:04 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.

That's what I was thinking, not to mention I was sad when Conks left he put up a great season here. He was near the top of the league in shut outs if I recall. I would love to have him back.

#2199298 Chris Osgood announces retirement

Posted by 13dangledangle on 19 July 2011 - 09:39 AM

I love the fact Ozzys agent found out about the conference like everyone else lol. Kind of a funny situation, I also loved how Ozzy just texted him "meeting with Kenny". If he's done it'll be sad to see him go, anyone who doesnt agree the mans an absolute Icon in goal is ridiculous.

Edit: Also super stoked about him developing our young goalies, I cant think of a better guy to do this, his calm would be great for that position.

#2199291 Backup Goalie?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 19 July 2011 - 09:29 AM

Conks would be my guy at this point I think...But for the love of god pretty, pretty please not Turco! Posted Image

#2198910 Zherdev and Emery?

What's this about Zherdev and Emery?! :hehe:

#2198657 Steve Mason's new goalie mask

Posted by 13dangledangle on 15 July 2011 - 08:09 AM

It doesn't flow as well as I think it should from one side to the other but Mase said he loved the Harvey Dent look, so it was obviously on purpose. Hopefully he can bounce back this year with some good help in front of him.

#2198653 nashville's new home jersey

Posted by 13dangledangle on 15 July 2011 - 07:58 AM

It's a lot of yellow but I like it, I also like that Nashville is paying tribute to there music scene a little with the keys.

#2198553 RFA/UFA Signings

Posted by 13dangledangle on 14 July 2011 - 03:18 PM

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

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

I was squeezing my mind grapes to think of a response then saw this. Also kudos Leftwinger you get a +1 for some of the most f***ed up s*** I've read on this board...They don't allow kids on here do they? :hehe:

#2198501 The easiest team to root for...

Posted by 13dangledangle on 14 July 2011 - 11:46 AM

I find #3 more interesting...

That's what I was thinking, 3 thru 5 are all strangely high to me...

#2198286 Holland becomes US citizen

Posted by 13dangledangle on 13 July 2011 - 08:50 AM

I'm really not sure why you're acting like part of Holland's ceremony involved burning a Canadian flag.

I was joking in my good ol' Canadian way :yowza:
