#2255933 If we got Selanne..

Posted by Lonewuhf on 12 February 2012 - 09:36 PM

No if we got Selanne then it provides us with the ability to finally play Pavs and Hank together every single game. I think the lines would and should be:

Zetterberg- Datsyuk- Bertuzzi (Hank is energized now and Pavel has been good most the season, and Bert has worked real well with Pavs)

Selanne- Filpulla- Franzen (Fil and Selanne would be great together and Franzen would add to the line... this would be the best 2nd line in the NHL)

Cleary- Helm- Hudler

Mursak- Abdelkator- Miller


Lidstrom- White
Kronners- Stu
Ericsson- Commie

- I don't think it would cost as much as ppl think for Selanne because everyone knows he is going to retire after this season and if he goes to the Ducks to ask to be traded to the Wings, I dont think it will cost us too much.
- I think getting Selanne will win us the Cup.


Seriously??? Babs isn't not playing Dats and Z together because he can't. It's because they just don't work together anymore as seen the countless times he's tried it in the past 2 seasons. I wish people here would get the damn "hank and dats together are unstoppable" mentality out of their heads once and for all.


#2252774 How open would you be to trading Hank?

Posted by Lonewuhf on 05 February 2012 - 02:17 AM

The third period against Edmonton is proof there is NOTHING wrong with Zetterberg. Put him with Franzen and Bertuzzi and he looks good. The problem is with Filppula and Hudler or having Filppula and Hudler on the same line. What good does it do when Filppula or Hudler get 30 or 40 points and they give up 40 or 50 points? Wings can not have TWO lightweights on a line with Zetterberg. Neither Filppula nor Hudler are "hard" on the puck. They get knocked off the puck easily and get knocked down easily. When was the last time you saw Filppula deliver a big hit????

If I get to choose players to play against the big teams like St. Louis, San Jose and Vancouver...... Filppula and Hudler are not on it.

Putting Datsyuk on a line with the two lightweights will not work either.


Yeah... Fil is easily the second strongest person on the puck behind Dats on this team. I can't remember the last time he WAS actually knocked off the puck.


#2249895 What happened to Zetterberg's scoring touch?

Posted by Lonewuhf on 26 January 2012 - 12:49 AM

All of my friends who are fans of other teams disagree.


It's good that you add such good arguments to the conversation and aren't just arguing for the sake of arguing >.>


#2242821 Flyers fans attack Rangers fans after Winter Classic

Posted by Lonewuhf on 08 January 2012 - 07:56 PM

LOL. I have a degree in history as well. I just don't use it to justify shortsighted points and reinforce it with s***ty logic. But you do, so that's cool. :) But you say you are a historian so… :D


Problem for you is, he's actually making relevant points, you're just saying "no you're wrong" without any support whatsoever. He's right, Philly does have the worst fans, it's a fairly widely known fact. Obviously not everyone is a bad fan, but too many are and they give the entire fan base a bad name.

I apparently haven't been paying attention, but what happened to Crosby again? Is he back to crying about his concussions?

So what exactly makes that funny?

HAHAHA call the PC Police.


Grow up and have some respect, if not for the players at least for the rest of the fans that support the same team you do.

Posted by Lonewuhf on 05 December 2011 - 06:33 PM

in what way is it incorrect?


Also with the way this year has been going with all of the player deaths, this is in incredibly bad taste.

#2232264 Filppula is "too nice".

Posted by Lonewuhf on 03 December 2011 - 01:19 AM

Fill keeps raising his value and it is at an all time high right now. It be hard to imagine fill not being the centerpiece for a trade for a sniper.

Either way hope he keeps this up.

With Fil playing like he is, there's approximately 0 percent chance of him being traded.


#2230944 The Official NHL Suspension Thread

Posted by Lonewuhf on 29 November 2011 - 07:39 PM

Colin Campbell got dumped on for not being consistent with punishments, not being transparent, and basically being a dillhole about the whole thing. Brendan Shanahan has been very consistent with punishments, has been very transparent about the process, and has not been acting like a dillhole about the whole thing.

Someone want to explain to me why Shanny's getting the same level of s*** flung at him Colin Campbell did? He's doing his job. A job the person who held it previous to him did NOT do. Maybe you're all so shell-shocked by the sight of someone in charge in the league not being a world-class f*** up, you don't know what to do. It's okay. Remain calm.


Completely agree. Hits are fine. Hits to the head are not. Someone WILL die from a hit to the head if they aren't dealt with. Careers have been ended by hits to the head. Saying 3 games is too little for potentially ending someones career, or life is ridiculous. I don't care if they were considered good hockey hits in the past. They used to not wear helmets at all in hockey, that doesn't mean it was good for the game though. Use a little common sense here guys.


#2228025 Do They Deserve It?

Posted by Lonewuhf on 20 November 2011 - 08:45 PM

I think you're a little obsessed.


Me? Cleary to you is like Hudler is to Eva...

Cleary has been terrible, he's failing passes, he's failing fighting for the puck, he's failing on his dump ins, he's failing on scoring. The only thing he's not failing at is playing on his ass.



Based on your logic, Jiri Hudler is the best player on the team. The Huds/Dats/Cleary line was the best line to start, but it was broken up because the second line didn't look good; he was switched with Z. So then, the Filppula/Franzen/Hudler line went on a tear. Washington game, Hudler was taken off that line. He gets moved to Helm's line, and suddenly everyone is talking about how great that line is doing, but Flip and Franzen aren't scoring anymore. Case closed.



Of course you turn this into a Hudler thread. I will not encourage this with any other response.

For the record, Hudler started on a line with Franzen and Fil, which was the best line. He didn't start with Dats.


#2227836 Do They Deserve It?

Posted by Lonewuhf on 20 November 2011 - 01:46 AM

You neglect to mention that he was swapped with Franzen. The latter is the team's best goal-scoring forward, and he's a big body. Cleary is not as good as Franzen. Nobody is disputing this. Swapping a better player out for a player who is not as good will make a line perform with lesser efficiency. Case closed.


Actually no, Cleary just makes whichever line he's on worse. If you're watching the games I'm not sure how you could dispute it.


#2227808 Do They Deserve It?

Posted by Lonewuhf on 19 November 2011 - 10:19 PM

Side note, anyone else notice that the game after Cleary was taken off the 1st line and put on the 2nd the 2nd line started sucking and the first is doing well? Coincidence?


#2227182 Babcock: "Do we want to be a good team or not?"

Posted by Lonewuhf on 18 November 2011 - 03:22 PM

Our D does miss Rafalski like we all knew we would. White has fit in well, I've been happy with his play. Nick has been outstanding as usual but he can't do it all by himself. We need guys like Kronwall, Hudler, Ericsson, Fillpula, Helm, Abdelkader and Cleary to step up but they aren't. Even if Dats, Z and Mule start playing well again, if we don't have proper balance we're not going anywhere anyway.


Do you watch the games? Fil has been BY FAR one of our best forwards, and hardest working. Also check the stats page. 2nd in points, tied for first in +/- (I realize +/- is lame, but still makes a point). If you're going to make us read something that long, at least put correct information in it.

Does any else get incredibly irritated every time you hear Murphy call Kronwall Kronwell?
