I would actually like that move, it would be good for Toronto they need someone to turn to other then Burke . *******>Super nice guy. I think it works.

#2179700 Will Nicklas Lidstrom Retire?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 25 May 2011 - 04:55 PM

"Hello, Steve?"
"Hey Kenny."
"Sorry to bother you but I need advice on managing a team to a Stanley Cup."
"Oh, well I can see why you'd call me then. I learned everything I know from this guy who managed his team to 3 cups in 5 years!"
"Thanks Mr. Yzerman, I really appreciate it."

Now thats funny!

...And no I dont think Lids will retire, not if he gets to pick Weber again :yowza:

Eberle certainly gets the nod here. That was, as they said when he scored it, the goal of the year. I love this kid, fell in love with him as many other canadian hockey fans at the juniors when they lost to the states. Eberle had the whole team on his back and will be a great leader for the oilers future as well. The thing that sets Pav apart is that move is equaled at least six other times in that sixty minute game. X number of games he played that season ;)

What else did he need?

#2176435 Interesting article about possible changes

Posted by 13dangledangle on 17 May 2011 - 09:31 AM

Personally, I'm surprised it was that much. I wouldn't think he should get more than $1.5M. Although as I thought about it more and more I bet you if this contract was actually offered it was similar to the Filppula deal (5 years, $10M) where Ericsson would grow into the deal. So I bet it was yr 1 $1.5M, yr 2 $1.75M, yr 3 $2M, yr 4 $2.25M, and yr 5$ 2.5M or something like that. I could see Holland doing that and banking on Ericsson reaching his potential. I would have been cool with Ericsson back at $1.5 for a year or two and been a little uneasy (but trusted the signing) about the type of contract I listed above but I've always felt Ericsson could reach his potential here but at this rate now I'd finally be ok with him going (if in fact that happens).

That's actually some what possible. ALthough I think I'd rather Bieksa. But I like the idea.

Bieksa may be a little out of reach after this run is done. Though it wouldve been nice.

#2175685 Modano

Posted by 13dangledangle on 14 May 2011 - 09:45 PM

Sorry if this has been covered already but I'm really confused as to why he was a healthy scratch 9 out of 11 games? It just doesn't make sence to me at all, Abby or Miller both could/should have been benched for Modano. He's just a different kind of player, goals were what we needed and Mo never had a chance to prove he was worthy. Is this Babcocks "American" dislike we have heard about? I just find some of the choices Babs made this year questionable is all.

#2172301 Where to buy Octopus near HP Pavillion

Posted by 13dangledangle on 11 May 2011 - 08:37 AM

Hopefully my fellow Bay-Area Red Wings fans can point me in the direction of a store where I can get an octopus.

Do you know a Chef at a restaurant? You can order cases of frozen Octopus and there perfect!

#2167130 Is San Jose more talented than us?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 05 May 2011 - 10:56 PM

The Sharks top guns are out performing our top guns. Howard has been better than Niemi but just not good enough. IMO we've ouplayed the Sharks games 1 and 3 but have nothing to show for it. As for players, the Sharks have key guys at the right time killing us. The Sharks have imo have out played us as a team overall these last 2 seasons. Dunno if it has something to do with McLellan or not as well knowing our system.

Jimmy has been so solid, I can only see him getting hotter as we head home trailing by 2 games.  I love this guy.

#2159704 Question: Why do Wings fans hate the Canucks?

#2144294 4/8 GDT: Blackhawks 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by 13dangledangle on 08 April 2011 - 11:45 PM

It's not like Hossa gave up on Detroit when it really mattered.

He was a joke in the 2009 playoffs. And absolute joke.

This is what I remember of Hossa and always will. This topic of discussion is ridiculous, Franzen signed here for 1,320,455 per annual caphit UNDER Hossa. Better not see you guys around here cheering when Franzen scores 1.5 average (at least) again this year...

#2129585 Owners meeting

Posted by 13dangledangle on 12 March 2011 - 04:57 PM

I agree 100% with you Chelios and Mickey Redmond say it all the time that players dont really respect each other now a days, and the cheap hits wont end until the respect factor comes back.

Well unfortunatley Im not sure anyone has a concrete answer on how to get players to respect one another more. Is it by suspensions? Enforcers doing there jobs more? or does it start with there parents and upbringing? But the funny thing about people complaining about respecting each other on this thread is 50% of people said yes this is a bad idea for a poll........ perhaps the respect starts with us.

#2129448 Jimmy Howard watch thread

Posted by 13dangledangle on 12 March 2011 - 08:02 AM

I'll take one softie per game. But my confidence in our current goalie situation is at an all time low. Every time someone puts the puck near Howard... I close my eyes, cringe and prepare for the worse.

Are you serious? If so I feel sorry for you, I just saw the game and Im might be bias as If****** have straight up man love for Howard but he made a half a dozen insane stops last nite. The Goalie situation should be one the last problems on your mind right now if you actually watched the game.
