#1986789 Eklund's top40 UFA's and possible teams

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 18 May 2010 - 05:23 PM

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.

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.

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.

When Hextall jumped him was even worse.

I love watching the old fight videos.I can watch em over and over.Especially when Hextall jumped Chelios.


#1984872 Wings off season moves.

I wouldn't be so sure of Miller coming back guys. He was a solid waiver pick up but Holland wants tougher guys in the bottom 6. Miller might have to go.

I doubt he's back next year.I wanna see some good ol'rock em sock em anyways :thumbup:

Canucks’ Mitchell criticizes head shot policy

Love this article. I didn't quote the full article.

The physicality needs to stay in the game,but i don't mind trying to eliminate the brutal,spineless hits from behind.

I don't understand why it is so hard to believe that Lidstrom "may" take 2 million for a 1 year contract being this close to retirement. Yzerman did the same thing, if memory serves right, I believe Yzerman only made 1 million in his final season. And we would have payed him 5 million to stay I'm sure. Hell, I think he only made around 2 million the year before his last season.

If Lidstrom taking less money means the team will be more competitive, he will.

I can see him taking less,just not taking 2 mil.That's a lot to ask.Could be wrong tho.


#1984663 Mike Babcock expects 70 points from Hudler

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 13 May 2010 - 02:56 PM

Wow, I'm surprised someone else here besides you sees him scoring 70 points.

Everytime we have a thread like this on LGW, something bad happens. Last year we had a "Will Franzen get 50 Goals" thread, and we've had a Zetterberg thread that was the same and of course that "Will Datsyuk Get 100 points" thread.

If those guys couldn't reach their fantasized projections, I can't see Hudler doing it. He's never hit 70 points, and now we may not have Lidstrom back next year and Hank and Pavel barely hit 70 this year. I just don't see it. If he hits 50 points, I say that's a pleasant surprise and a success.

Jiri Hudler will not score 70 points next season.


#1983960 Holland Targets Gritty 4th Liner

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 12 May 2010 - 05:54 PM

I'd take any of those players.

Asham would top that list for me, and then we should also add a legitimate heavy on top of that. That would make us a tougher team to play against.

Top 6 will probably stay unchanged, since there isn't much out there that we can pursue, thus the bottom 6 forwards are all Holland can look for.

Asham and a heavyweight would be amazing.Here's my list of players i'd be happy with:

Shawn Thornton
Krys Barch
Arron Asham
Adam Mair
Brandon Prust
Eric Boulton
Raffi Torres
Steve Begin
Zenon Konopka
Andrew Peters
Brian McGrattan
Jody Shelley
Scott Nichol
Brian Sutherby
Kyle Chipchura
Ryan Johnson
Derek Boogaard
Brad Winchester
Colin Fraser
Darcy Hordichuk
Cam Janssen
Jared Boll
Ben Eager
David Koci
Nate Thompson
Tim Jackman
Aaron Voros
Brian Boyle
Adam Burish
Byron Bitz
Josh Gratton
Jamal Mayers
David Clarkson
Jason Chimera



Although goons like McGrattan,Janssen,and Koci are unlikely to be signed,theyre worth mentioning.There's plenty of muscle available this offseason.


#1982945 Free Agents

With hudler returning we have enough top 6 players, the only player i'd like to see signed as a top 6 this summer is frolov.

I'd play Kenny $500 to trade Hudler to Philadelphia for Carcillo.
