#2198239 Holland becomes US citizen

Posted by 13dangledangle on 12 July 2011 - 11:04 PM

Stings a little I won't lie Kenny. I get it, and still respect the sh*t out of you, but not in that good ol' Canadian way I used to.

#2198071 Just for fun

Folks around here are pretty burnt out on line threads. Bump this topic come October and it will be much more popular.

Yeah, thanks a lot blueadams. :ranting:

#2197945 Backup Goalie?

I would rather Conks then Oz to be honest, and folks it hurts me to say it. Something tells me it's going to be neither however...

#2197652 Ranking NHL Broadcasters

Posted by 13dangledangle on 09 July 2011 - 10:50 PM

I get annoyed listening to any broadcast but the Wings broadcast, most announcers didn't even get Datsyuk's name right until last year....

EDIT: (I also love Joe Bowen, but he never has anything to call;)

#2197056 Share of Leafs for sale

Because it is an investment company. They are in the business of making investments and then selling them for more than the initial investment. They need to seel at some point in time to monetize their investment.

Maybe they should have waited until they inked Stamkos :hehe:

I'll give you 3.25 million reasons why Ericsson does not need to worry about his ice time.

He wasn't scratched last season and his salary was a lot less, plus, regardless of what most want to see, he has improved... if anyone should be unhappy with how things have shaken out, it's Kindl... he's probably going to need a change of scenery, as we certainly haven't made it appear that he's in our long term plans...

Ya this is a little surprising to me as Kindl hasn't played bad either, I kind of thought he was going to be our extra guy and Big Rig was on his way out. I certainly feel better looking at our roster now then last week...

#2196803 Is there a problem with Babs?

If Scotty didn't like Yzerman on HIS team then I would hate to see what he thought of yashin lol

#2196522 Stamkos Re-Signs With Lightning

Posted by 13dangledangle on 05 July 2011 - 02:31 PM

I just honestly cannot get my brain around he's not signed yet. I just can't imagine Stamkos not re-signing there, either he's been on vacation for a week or there's blood in the water in Tampa...

#2196521 "We feel good with the people we have," Holland said

I hope we ink Conks back again for a coulpe. As far as any other additions I'm going to sit tight and see how the Hudler situation goes. Our D core really impress me as a group and I think they'll be great imo, so I think we are pretty D heavy when you look at GR as well. I'll look for a Huds/GRDman and a 3rd combo before to long.

#2196152 Jason Arnott

Posted by 13dangledangle on 04 July 2011 - 01:02 PM

I used to love Arnott, but that was 1995. I dont love him so much now, respect yes but for the Wings Id have to pass for younger talent.

#2196003 Zherdev and Emery?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 03 July 2011 - 10:57 PM

I dont know Zherdev all that well but from what Ive heard it's not good...However with the candor of the Red Wings could this alter his attitude? Or could the Dazzeling Datsyukian dekes humble him just enough to give us a chance to mold him some? I think so imo, and I love Emery as well, he plays with raw emotion and plays really well (most of the time).....he could also be our enforcer. I love fighting goalies!

#2195998 Brett Lebda traded to Nashville

Posted by 13dangledangle on 03 July 2011 - 10:42 PM

That's a very, very good trade for Toronto (for once). Especially if Lombardi's healthy next season.

They basically dump Lebda and get a huge upgrade in Franson.

Nashville simply got robbed here. Were they too cheap to pay Lombardi on IR or what? And in return, the Preds got Slaney, who looks like he might be a career minor-leaguer.

Doesn't make any sense. If good trade are this easy, Kenny should give Poile a call.

A Howard/Rinne Tandem for Hudler and a 4rth looks great to me;)

#2195991 Forward lines next season?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 03 July 2011 - 10:34 PM

I totally agree with these lines, but i also see homer and cleary swapping spots from time to time depending on the matchup with opposition. but ya, agree with the abs, helm positions. i see babs playing that 4th line A LOT. These are very balanced and i would be confident playing all of them anytime. I just wish kenny could get one of yandle or bogo, cause that would make our team scary good.

Damn right it would!

#2195976 Forward lines next season?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 03 July 2011 - 10:12 PM

id try something like this

Filppula - Datsyuk -Holmstrom

Hudler- Zetterberg - Franzen

Cleary - Helm - Bertuzzi

Eaves - Abs - Mursak

Filppula - Datsyuk -Holmstrom

Hudler- Zetterberg - Franzen

Cleary - Abs - Bertuzzi

Eaves - Helm-Mursak

I love the combos. I just think that Abby would do great with Clears and Bert, they are all cut from the same cloth so to speak. That leaves Helm on four, which is almost my favorite line on the team. The "Wheels" line as I will call it of Eaves, Helm and Mursak. These guys will leave almost any line one thru four spinning round watching them fly away. I am really digging this team right now, and I have a feeling it's a best for last sort of thing...we shall see.
