#2453600 Lines Thread

Posted by dirtydangles on 14 November 2013 - 12:28 PM

EVERYONE knows that Andersson plays like s*** when paired with slow wingers. What does babs do? Puts Cleary and Sammy on the wings. I fully expect that line to go -5 next game and single handedly lose the game.

#2453593 Patrick Eaves on Waivers

Posted by dirtydangles on 14 November 2013 - 12:25 PM

I think Sammy WOULD be waived over eaves if he didn't have a 35+ contract that would only provide like 100k in cap savings. whereas eaves provides like 900k or something

#2452757 Speculation regarding Franzen's ailment

Posted by dirtydangles on 11 November 2013 - 03:48 PM

I'm glad its not mental. I would feel bad amnestying him if he had mental problems. 

#2452698 Speculation regarding Franzen's ailment

Posted by dirtydangles on 10 November 2013 - 11:50 PM

If this ailment is true, buying out Franzen may be the best for the team in the long run, and may be best for Franzen. He still walks away with a boatload of cash and he would no longer have to deal with the pressure of NHL hockey. If we LTIR him he can't do anything and is handcuffed to the organization for a good long while.

Quincey + Anyone equals s***. Cleary + any line mates = s***. FACT.

#2452289 11/9 GDT: Lightning 3 @ Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by dirtydangles on 09 November 2013 - 04:26 PM

Wings win 3-2, Filppula hat trick.

so fil scores at least one on his own net?

#2452214 What would you do?...

Posted by dirtydangles on 08 November 2013 - 09:22 PM

THE Plan would be:


1. Francine trade: At the worst case, trade him for Booth (reunited with Weiss... and still 1 year on his contract). Francine and twins sister's could be interesting for Canucks.


2. Quincey trade: Since his best days were in LA, I would send him, Eaves and a pick to Kings for Clifford.


3. Emmerton and a pick for Rundbland, I think that at this point his value is low... but he could be nice fit here with Either Kindl or DeKe. Provide us option for the 2nd PP unit.


4. Sammy: bye/bye



Z - Dats - Bert

Alf - Weiss - Tatar

Nyquist/Booth - Andersson - Abdelkader/Clifford

Clifford - Helm - Tootoo/Miller/Cleary


Kronwall - E

Kindl - Rundbland

DeKe - Smith

Almquist - Lashoff - Ouellet (as a 7th D)

Trading Franzen to Vancouver and taking on Booth is terrible for us! Franzen will retire before his contract is up and we will take the brunt of the contract penalty (we can buy him out this offseason instead). Instead we take on 1 more year of booth at 4.25mill and he is more useless than franzen then years down the road we get stuck with franzen's cap penalty from retirement. 


EDIT: I like the rundblad idea - but bags would destroy him (another offensive dman)

#2450607 Smith to IR, Almqvist called up

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 November 2013 - 04:00 PM

I would have rather seen ouellet up over almquist... ouellet has a better defensive game.

#2450055 stephen weiss

Posted by dirtydangles on 02 November 2013 - 11:43 AM

Weiss has slowly improved. Last night he was creating chances and looked half decent. He isn't anywhere near where we need him to be yet but he IS improving - slowly. Part of this is likely that his wingers (cleary) aren't creating chances or burying the ones he provides. 

#2449359 Edler trade proposal

Posted by dirtydangles on 31 October 2013 - 09:16 PM

I think we should target a stay at home dman. Ideally that is Girardi due to RH shot but doesn't have to be. We really need to be subtracting Quincey rather than Smith and we can DEFINITELY afford to trade our 1st this year with the plethora of prospects jammed in the pipeline. Franzen isn't worth much due to the contract length despite the cap hit - and we are screwed if he retires (compliance buyout). Edler is very expensive because he is on a great contract and is a top 2 defender on a team that needs him.


I would prefer to do something like:


1st 2014 + 2nd 2015 + Quincey for Girardi at the trade deadline if NYR are out of the playoffs and can't re-sign all their guys under the cap.


EDIT: Also no interest in Booth anywhere near this team.

#2448909 Any new Helm Updates?

Posted by dirtydangles on 30 October 2013 - 05:23 PM

Lets hope its actually saturday this time....

#2448906 10/30 GDT: Red Wings 2 at Canucks 1

Posted by dirtydangles on 30 October 2013 - 05:19 PM

Patty Eaves is back!



I like him a lot. Can't wait to have him and Helm killing some penalties together and grinding on the fourth line.


Lines tonight:




Go Wings!

Damn, I like the look of the bottom 6 for once (hardworking). Too bad Cleary and Bert are top 6 - Substituting nyquist in there for cleary would make everything sweeter. 

#2448547 Would you want Moulson on the Wings?

Posted by dirtydangles on 28 October 2013 - 05:49 PM


Why do you think that?

Moulson is a pending UFA and Mrazek could be a number 1 guy for the future... add in the 1st and it doesn't work at all.
