#2029041 Line Musings

Posted by 13dangledangle on 25 August 2010 - 12:08 AM

I like Bab's "forecasted" line as well as most other's here so far, point is they look darn good on paper, and given that most have a chemistry already there shouldn't be much of an issue. I would like to see him shake em up and put Big Bert on PP1 (also resting homer) and Flip Modano and Rafi on the PP as well. I just feel Rafalski should quarter back his own PP, Lids-Modano and Kronner-Rafalski?

* Verification goal line (additional line situated behind the goal line);

I cant be the only one who finds this absurd can I? There already is a line there to tell you if it went over!

#2024238 Red Wings might opt to keep Ritola at the expense of Miller

Posted by 13dangledangle on 09 August 2010 - 10:12 AM

Ritola does not have the nack for finding the back of the net, but man is he amazing and such a smart player. He sees the ice almost as well as Datsyuk. He has crazy puck handling skills, and can do take-aways as good or better than Datsyuk. His work ethics are off the charts and he isn't afraid to go in the corners and dig the puck out... and win.

Easy now let's not get to carried away here, Datsyuk is perhaps the best take-away artist of all time and the latter is Ritola.

#2023838 Unsigned RFAs

Bobby Ryan is not a player I would think anyone would have a problem giving a contract to, something is odd there for sure...

#2023820 Take it as an omen.

They are also delicious :)

#2022658 This team's still missing one thing..

Posted by 13dangledangle on 05 August 2010 - 08:04 AM

Does everyone remember how Rafi played in the Olympics this year? He still has incredible game left in him but I think he needs to be on his own line not with Lids, as well as quarterbacking his own powerplay (unit two with Modano on the other point)

#2022252 Mike Modano signs with Detroit

Posted by 13dangledangle on 03 August 2010 - 11:42 PM

Babcock- "I like our team here. I even said that to my wife."

..............lol that line made me laugh! I am as well thrilled with this signing. Ive been missing a third scoring line for a while now! Good Job Kenny

#2021023 Wings better trade Lidstrom quick!

Posted by 13dangledangle on 31 July 2010 - 10:25 AM

Lidstrom is one of the best Defenseman of all time...ALL TIME! He (and most the Wings) had a below average year, by there standards anyway. I also would not be at all surprised to see Nick get the Norris back this season. :thumbup:

#2016133 What's going on with Helm?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 16 July 2010 - 11:13 PM

Early on, even before July 1st, I remember Holland being quoted that Abby and Helm wouldn't be signed til sometime in August, due to longer term deals.

Patience, and hopefully both sides get what they want.

I remember that as well, and they will be back for sure and at pretty good prices so we might as well keep talking about MadonnaPosted Image

#2012906 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by 13dangledangle on 09 July 2010 - 12:09 AM

I must disagree, I think Modano would make this team a force. We already look pretty darn good imo, then adding a Modano? Sure as hell isnt making us worse!

#2006962 Lilja May Test Market

Posted by 13dangledangle on 29 June 2010 - 11:26 PM

I love Lilja but at his age to be a 3rd pairing I get him wanting to move on elsewhere and bloom. I actually dig Exelby a lot and think he would "bloom" in the Wings system.

#2000521 Is Filppula going to be our 3rd line center...or 1st line winger?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 17 June 2010 - 12:06 AM

If Babcock's quotes about next year are to ring true, Flip will not be on the third line. Bertuzzi will more than likely be a 3rd line winger playing on the second PP.

Im sure your right, but honestly people why would we brake up the Flip, Bert, Mule experiment when it looked sooo good. Not to mention it puts Z & D back together :yowza:(which we really, really need again)

#1999651 I don't get all of the Colby Armstrong Love

Posted by 13dangledangle on 14 June 2010 - 09:37 PM

I don't mind Colby. But I wonder if there is someone out there better than him at the right price.


(jk saw what you said about him already...i kid i kid)

#1999644 I don't get all of the Colby Armstrong Love

Posted by 13dangledangle on 14 June 2010 - 09:27 PM

I liked Colby with the Pens but we have one in Abby in my opinion.

Larry Murphy was a Penguin.
Luc Robitaille was a Penguin.

Should we hate those guys too?

...those two are like whores, they've been with everyone...

Posted by 13dangledangle on 14 June 2010 - 09:20 PM

That line up looks pretty soft, take Draper out and put in Nystrom and you've got me sold.

I like that idea! Just for s***s and gigs Imagine....now nay sayers this is just pretend so relax lol because I know it cant/wont happen.
