#2426383 Wings in on Alfredsson

Holland - "All your swedes are belong to us"




#2426381 Wings in on Alfredsson

Just threw up in my mouth.

My god, how does Holland still have defenders?

I'd like to hear what they have to say right about now. I think everyone is pissed.

Please god no. Like seriously. The wings haven't made any significant UFA additions I have liked since Hossa. Can we stop with the old timers please?! I understand loyalty to our own UFAs to a point but taking a spot away from our youngsters for someone else's old guys is grinding my gears.


Too many vets come here as a last stop for retirement because the atmosphere is relaxing for them without a bunch of young guys amped up all the time. This isn't a retirement home - its the motherf***ing Detroit Red Wings. 




#2426150 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by dirtydangles on 04 July 2013 - 08:13 PM

I went to the movies and came out hoping I would see that Brunner had been signed. :(

This sucks.

Were you watching Great Expectations?




#2426109 Grabovski Bought Out

Posted by dirtydangles on 04 July 2013 - 07:44 PM

 

Let's do it then ... make a Russian pairing of Dats and Grabo

I think Grabs is from Belarus...

Opens up LGW to see holland hasnt re-signed brunner, thinking of re-signing cleary, and isnt looking at a centre but rather alfredsson:

Holland must be reading these forums and taking the insults personally and screwing us over.

Dear god please no. We need to let our kids develop. They have no value without nhl experience and we will have nothing of value in trades other than 35+ aging players.


#2425873 Trade/Buyout thread

Showing Holland how it's done? Give me a break. Blockbuster trade

LOL im glad i got everyone wound up with that post. But seriously, holland couldnt even get assets for fil this year and has made some pretty head scratching moves the last offseason. Makes me wonder.

Huge trade in the works. Boston and Dallas close on a deal sending Tyler Seguin to Stars for Loui Eriksson. Other parts involved as well.

#2425747 Players of Interest

Posted by dirtydangles on 04 July 2013 - 08:54 AM

Yes to Weiss under 5mill per season. We can use a player with his quality - he can play a skilled or physical game depending on the situation and WINS faceoffs more often than not. Its a shame he isn't above 6 feet but he plays like it.

 

We don't need more "meh" wingers - we need a sure thing. 




#2425544 Buffalo fielding calls for Vanek

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 July 2013 - 04:42 PM

I'd take Vanek - he is a pure scorer. We can buyout Franzen next offseason.




#2425538 Stoll Taken to Hospital After Suffering Seizure

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 July 2013 - 04:37 PM

This may put his career at risk if it is persistent. People at risk of persistent seizures most often have their driver's license taken away, as well playing a high stakes sport might be considered too much of a risk. Imagine if he had a seizure on-ice in the middle of a game - it could be very dangerous for him.




#2425534 Kindl-Kronwall on the PP

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 July 2013 - 04:32 PM

I'd like to see less point shots overall.  Other PPs seem to move the puck and create chances, we seem to throw it to the point and let one rip hoping for it to make it through or a lucky bounce to bury.  If our PP showed up against Chicago they don't win the cup.

I think our most effective PP is when we move the puck down low and try to find someone above the crease or in the slot with a quick pass. Goalies are just too good these days at tracking things down from the point. 




#2425529 Kindl-Kronwall on the PP

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 July 2013 - 04:23 PM

I liked our PP when Z was on the point and Brunner hanging around the circles/slot area. He's good at deflecting pucks and picking up rebounds. Just gotta get him signed... 

 

Otherwise I want us to have a 1A-1B powerplay next year. No more having a useless 2nd formation please. 

 

If we only have d-men on the points, I'd like to see Kronwall-Ericsson and Kindl-Dekeyser, with Smith jumping in if Ericsson or Dekeyser aren't doing a good enough job. 

Z is also a little better and confident defensively so I would prefer to have him over Brunner at the point. Brunner in the slot is ideal.
