#1988488 It's Official: Happy Hudler is Back

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 23 May 2010 - 03:28 PM

Finnish players have more heart and they work harder.

So Yzerman and Shanahan didnt have heart?McCarty didn't have heart?none of them worked hard?What about a guy like Mike Richards?he doesn't have heart or work hard?What a ridiculously stupid comment to make when you have nothing to back it up.Olli Jokinen does not have what I consider heart.Everyone knows he causes problems within the team he's playing for.Just an all around idiotic thing to say.wow.

May as well let him go then and actually get someone that would be useful on the 4th line.

It would free up some cap space as well.Raffi Torres and Brad Winchester.Please and thank you.


#1987415 4th line options

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 19 May 2010 - 09:59 PM

I'd love to see any of those guys in a Wings uniform, but I doubt we'll wind up with any bonafide enforcer.

A guy like Nystrom or Asham is probably what we'll wind up with. Then again, even that may not happen.

Holland brought in Williams of all people last year, and didn't he say that he was looking for more grit at that time? <_<

i know.Thats a list of like 50.Any of those i'll be happy with.Jesus Kenny just bring rock em sock em back to Detroit :ranting:


#1987338 4th line options

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 19 May 2010 - 06:56 PM

Any of the following would be a welcome addition in my opinion:

Eric Nystrom
Raffi Torres
Shawn Thornton
Brian Sutherby
Jason Chimera
Scott Nichol
Adam Burish
Jared Boll
Krys Barch
Derek Boogaard
Andrew Ladd
Brian McGrattan
Zenon Konopka
Arron Asham
Cam Janssen
Brandon Prust
Eric Boulton
Tim Jackman
Darcy Hordichuk
Jamal Mayers
Chris Thorburn
Ben Eager
David Koci
Jody Shelley
Colin Fraser
Tanner Glass
Kyle Chipchura
Brad Winchester
David Clarkson
Aaron Voros
Byron Bitz
Ryan Stone
Cody McCormick
Nate Thompson
Nick Tarnasky
Dan Winnik
Andrew Peters
Steve Begin
Craig Weller
Steve MacIntyre
Jeremy Reich

Any one of these guys would be excellent.I think we need to be a little bit more well rounded;get less pretty and a little more gritty.Thoughts?

How so? I don't know much about him as a person. I did enjoy watching him in the USHL, he was quite the wrecking ball. His NHL game seems pretty similar. I remember people saying that he was a pretty nice guy.

He would be a perfect fit here.Seems like a good kid.

There's just not enough room to re-sign Bertuzzi,Holmstrom,Eaves,Miller,Abdelkader,and Helm up front.especially with Hudler coming back.I still think we can do better than Lilja.

And the squad that likes people who can skate and take a pass. Boll is actually a decent player, he just doesn't score.

The thing that makes me nervous is seeing that there was interest in Scott Parse.I just don't want another ***** coming here.

If Scott Parse is Kenny's idea of a "gritty 4th liner" i'm going to lose it.

I like pre injury Lilja and all but really the only guys he had a good go with wereBoll and Sharp. Sharp isn't the toughest guy around and Souray he landed a good punch and they kinda lost their balance it was a TKO or anything.

Janik is a better fighter then Lilja is what I'm trying to say, and much more willing to go.

Jared Boll would be a good fit here.Skates decent,plays well defensively,and he's not afraid of anyone.


#1986578 Backstrom re-signs with the Capitals

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 17 May 2010 - 11:24 PM

A guy from Washington I think would fit well in our system would be Jason Chimera.I'd love to see him on the 4th line.Anyone heard anything on if they intend on keeping him or letting him walk?

janik does everything lilja can do

except for being a good defenseman

Janik can do everything that Lilja can do.The only thing Janik can't do as well as Lilja is get his ass kicked.

#1984915 End of an Era....

Thank God for YouTube...I can relive my youth, and passion for "Old Time Hockey" again, and again ;)

Amen.Nothing like reliving the cup-clinching goals and crazy brawls and spectacular saves and huge hits and man i can go all day watching old hockey clips.
