#2386470 Top 5 defenseman

Posted by dirtydangles on 18 April 2013 - 01:36 PM

I guess I'm not seeing the offensive upside to Smith. His shot from the point is absolutely weak. By comparison, Kronwall, Kindle, and CocaCola can all blast it.

I don't know if you remember but Kindl used to be an offensive dud too. With some guys its all about confidence. Smith looked sick last season when he was jumping up in the play but he is trying to be smarter this year and I feel like the pressure of having 3 vets battle for your spot is making him second guess himself out there.




#2384270 4/12 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Blackhawks 3 (SO)

Datsyuk has been uninspired in the shootout this season. He has tried pretty much the same old stuff. I miss his unpredictability. 

 

Also whos idea was it to have Quincey and Cola on the ice at the same time? and against Toews too. I can't count the number of times I have seen a goal go in with a Red wing dman laying on the ice in front of howard. 




#2383757 nhl.com calls Kenny the best GM

Posted by dirtydangles on 12 April 2013 - 05:55 PM

kinda a reputation pick there. I think Holland has slipped a bit in past years. He has made a few boneheaded decisions recently like Sammy, Cola, Gus, Quincey (trade) signings. There have been a few opportunities to improve the team that fell though as well. He is definitely a top 5 GM but im not sure if he is the best atm. 




#2382932 Samuelsson

I'm sorry, but a sore pectoral muscle? That shouldn't impact skating. I know for a fact that many players (Stevie Y) played though far far worse than a sore chest. Its not that unreasonable to poke fun at him for sitting for such a small discomfort. I don't see how Ken Holland can afford to keep Sammy for another year. He has been the biggest waste of a roster spot ever and screams amnesty buyout.

#2379963 Holland retirement watch?

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 April 2013 - 09:25 PM

You mean, there's a chance that Nill loves enforcers and thinks Cleary and Samuelsson are lucky to be playing in the NHL?

 

:sadlike:

For the sake of everyone's sanity - I hope so.




#2379946 Holland retirement watch?

I woulnd't be upset... This isn't a knee jerk reaction. I think this organization needs a bit of a shake-up at some point. We also need a shift in outlook in my opinion. 




#2378921 Holland: "We don't need depth...Need a top guy"

Posted by dirtydangles on 02 April 2013 - 07:02 PM

Word was that the blues wanted a goalie prospect and Holland wasn't giving them Mrazek or Patterson.  I think that's what did it. 

I don't consider the 26 year old goalie prospect they got in the trade to be of great value... Feaster is delusional.

Gaborik or Eriksson would restore my faith in Holland. 




#2378376 Bouwmeester to Blues

Posted by dirtydangles on 01 April 2013 - 09:54 PM

Feaster wanted a goalie prospect given all this Kipper drama and we weren't willing to part with ours.  St. Louis was.  That's pretty much the difference maker there. 

A 26 year old goalie who won't be a factor by coming to N.A. likely? We could have gone with McCollum as a throw in.  Paterson would have been an option. Blues didn't give up Allen (who is their top goalie prospect).

I love how CGY fans on HF were claiming that Jurco, Quincey, 2nd wouldn't have done it. 



most said nyquist + 1st wasn't enough



I almost feel bad for the fans
