#2010075 Getflaf for Zetter

Posted by RusDRW on 04 July 2010 - 06:36 PM

I'm sure they will never trade Getz for Zet alone. That's my opinion. And it basically says that Gets is better than any player in our roster. Are you in favor of this trade? No? Why? Should we add?

You're af****** idiot.Even Kenny has said over and over that he's looking for more grit and nastiness.But he must not know anything about hockey either :rolleyes:

He's also trying to sign Modano to a contract.

There is nothing wrong with grit (Though a 4th line of Eaves/Abds/Helm will be a hell of a line), but at the expense of incredible depth? No thanks.

please stop with the "best third line in the league" nonsense. Modano isn't even a wing and who knows if the signings will pan out.

..he wouldn't play wing. He'd play.....center.

Hudler Modano Cleary

60 goals from those 3 players.

Edit: I'm actually now thinking you meant he's not a Red Wing. But still, name me a better third line.

You should know that I really don't care what you have to say about my character.

Words cannot explain how little I believe this. Your whole style of writing on this site reeks of false superiority complex.

Mmmhmm... and all the other games I mentioned...

So what, 20 games? Kinda similar to the one long playoff example.

Um, so sorry; Cleary was, as a direct result of his jaw injury, far from in peak condition during the '08 playoffs. Having major reconstructive surgery on one's jaw is a very serious process, and it leaves one incapacitated for some time. I wouldn't be surprised if Cleary was unable to fully skate for a month afterwards, and he certainly wasn't able to engage in conditioning drills and/or standard team practices. After he came back from injury---knowing him, he almost certainly did so as soon as he possibly could---he had very little time before the team went into the playoffs (in which, as we know, the most physically intense hockey of the season is played). Do you know how much conditioning was almost certainly lost in between? Well, apparently you don't, and apparently you also don't know the effect that such would have on anyone's play. And given that I did quite a bit of study on that sort of thing in my university major, I think I know quite a bit more about it than you do. Yes, I'm pulling rank here. Call me arrogant. And so sorry, but the his performances in the playoffs of '07 and '09 really support my point here.

You do realize he was skating during his injury correct? Regardless whether or not I erroneously stated that his play was or was not effected by injuries, the fact remains that a sample size of that small amount of games is not a good indicator of a player, especially when in the past they have been praised for the very things one is arguing. This does nothing to prove your point, as all you have done is pointed out a error by me, while ignoring the original argument of that being a small sample size. Nice try, but I'm not 5.

It is my opinion that he has nowhere near the defensive capabilities of either Filppula or Cleary. It's very silly for you to be pointing at my opinion and calling it 'wrong'. You can choose to either agree or disagree---to whatever degree---with my opinion on this matter; that's pretty much the extent of your options in this situation.

Once again, I am questioning your reading comprehension. I KNOW it was your opinion, and have never stated that it was wrong. I was merely saying that you have a habit of stating your opinions as fact. Saying "He is horrible defensively" with no real basis not only leaves any room for further arguement, but is stated as a fact rather than an opinion. If you had actually read what I was saying, all I did was point out that being so close-minded about the tiniest possibility that you were wrong seems egotistical, as countless GMS and hockey personalities have raved about his defensive ability. Google any Lombaradi scouting report if you don't believe other people then me disagree with you.

Byfuglien was better than Toews during the entire run.

#1982178 Who should we Keep? Release? Sign?

Posted by Red Storm on 09 May 2010 - 03:31 PM

I think we can all agree that Brad McCrimmon has got to go.

Is it that he has to go, or is it were getting soft in the back end. I think its the latter. Someone on the board said Rafalski's got to go; I agree he may add offense at times , but his defensive skills are really starting to lag which was evident in this series. I would not give up on Ericson just yet ,give him another year defensemen take longer to develop. Lila is another defenseman we could do with out he not mobile enough for the speed that now dominates this league; the young Avs. are proof of that ; we need more youth on defense . Another factor up front is with our centers we really got dominated in the faceoff circle that really hurt us against the Sharks. I would like to see more size up front, however big centers are a highly sought after commodity in the league. There is definitely trading material in terms of our forwards: Flip was a real let down in this series; Cleary didn't do much lacked fire; Homer I think its time like Draper and Maltby to go. And Zetterberg was really lack lustre and ineffective in this series. If Montreal were willing to part with Price and throw in Plekanec I would part with Hanks longterm contract.
