#2013229 Shea Weber named Nashville Captain

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 09 July 2010 - 02:39 PM

I know the Preds fans (well, the majority of them) will be thrilled with this! I certainly am! Alot of folks, me included, thought that Sully would possibly be named captain. Legwand's name was thrown around a little, only because he's the only career Pred left.Shea is a great player, and he's good for the city of Nashville. Just an all-around good guy. :thumbup:

Isn't Martin Erat a career Predator too?Not suggesting he should be captain,just saying.

I would have preferred Wade Belak.

:hehe:


#2013226 Remaining Free Agents

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 09 July 2010 - 02:27 PM

I'd love Mitchell, but he's still probably well out of the Red Wings price range. I prefer Jay McKee to replace Lilja as the 6th d-man.

Yeah i just put the first group of guys that came to mind,but McKee is a really good option.He's a hell of a shot blocker.I was hoping for some way that we could acquire Mark Stuart from Boston but the Bruins re-signed him today :angry:


#2013214 Datsyuk goes back to school

Without a doubt would earn a #1 comedy of the year Emmy in Russia (if they have those) and Hockeytown. Pav could do stand-up once this all said and done. Way to go Pav! Maybe Stevie's Assistant GM some day down the road.

Another guy that comes to mind when i think Wings comedy is Homer.He's got a great sense of humor :lol:


#2012625 Jard Boll

Miller for Boll is fair,but if we sign Modano were gonna have to drop an extra forward.Maybe Miller and Ritola for Boll and a 6th defenseman,maybe Marc Methot?


#2012617 Brett Lebda signs with Toronto

Reports are suggesting the Leafs could be interested in Andy Sutton,Willie Mitchell,and Shane Hnidy.Also,other reports were suggesting Burke was pursuing Nikolai Zherdev,which was shot down.

I'm hoping for Miller and Ritola for Boll.Might as well order your Modano jerseys now.


#2011483 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 06 July 2010 - 08:24 PM

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Hudler-Filppula-Franzen
Cleary-Modano-Bertuzzi
Eaves-Abdelkader-Helm
-(Cheap tough guy)/Draper

I'll be happy with this :thumbup:


#2011479 Why not Aaron Ward?

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 06 July 2010 - 08:18 PM

When it's all said and done,doesn't Doug Janik seem like a solid 3rd pairing guy?Why not give him a shot.Its not like we absolutely have to sign another defenseman.I'd be fine with a 3rd defensive pairing of Ericsson and Janik.


#2011212 Miller signs 1 year deal

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 06 July 2010 - 01:59 PM

Sign and trade unless theyve given up on Modano.There is simply too many forwards on this team.


#2010940 Bob Probert passes away at 45

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 06 July 2010 - 12:55 AM

Yeah the people of Detroit are battlers.Not a resident anymore,but a former one.Detroiters seem to get kicked down constantly,but we always get back up.Bob Probert symbolized the city of Detroit as well as its citizens:hard working,fearless,tough as nails.Probie will forever be an icon in the Motor City :thumbup:


#2010936 Why not Aaron Ward?

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 06 July 2010 - 12:47 AM

Yeah I'd be happy with Exelby.He's still fairly young.He would be a good mentor for Ericsson.The last thing I wanna see is Kindl and E paired up.You wanna talk about turnovers?:o


#2010907 Why not Aaron Ward?

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 05 July 2010 - 11:33 PM

Shane Hnidy
Garnet Exelby
Andy Sutton (Please)
Brendan Witt
Tim Conboy (plays both forward and defense)
Carlo Colaiacovo
Nick Boynton
Nathan McIver

Looks like Colaiacovo may re-sign with St.Louis


#2010881 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 05 July 2010 - 11:01 PM

Every team has at least one "enforcer" on their roster.I don't wanna hear that Abdelkader can be our enforcer.No.I don't wanna hear that our powerplay can be our enforcer.No.I'm sick of watching us getf****** knocked around night after night.GIVE ME Af****** ENFORCER!!!I KNOW I'm NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT FEELS THIS WAY.

Grit and nastiness is overrated in hockey,right guys?


#2010803 Bob Probert passes away at 45

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 05 July 2010 - 09:47 PM

There will never be another player like Probert.RIP Bob.I'd absolutely purchase a t-shirt in rememberance of Probie.
