#2242119 Open Season on Ducks

Posted by dirtydangles on 07 January 2012 - 01:41 AM

Why do people keep saying Detroit needs scoring?

We're third in goals for. Third.

Point percentage, fourth. Goals against, fifth. Sixth on the power play. Third in shots for, third fewest shots against.

The only worrisome ones are faceoff percentage -ninth- and penalty kill, twentieth.

Find a solid PK guy or 1B goalie, sure, but I fail to see the need to keep fixing an offense that simply isn't broken.

well franzen isn't getting any younger or less injury prone so it would be nice to have reliable scoring. his contract isn't that great either for the future. also i'd like to mention that detroit is highest in the league in dman scoring so the total goals for has a lot to do with our d corps. forward corps could use some more work imo. we have eaves who has only played 10 games for the pk guy you talk about and a guy like nabby at the deadline would solve the goalie issue.

#2225355 The 2012 Off-Season

Posted by dirtydangles on 14 November 2011 - 04:22 PM

We're for sure going to hae to give up a lot to get those two guys. They arent going to come as ufas for free. Look at what happened with ehrhoff and wiz. Its gonna take guys like franzen and cleary or some young guys as well as a our first rounder to make that happen.

#2202302 Weber Arbitration hearing...

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 August 2011 - 09:47 PM

Why would they want Stuart when he'll be a UFA next season? Why would we trade an arm and a leg for Weber when he could easily bolt next season?

god i love this argument. u said the same thing about burns when i brought that up and he re-signed before playing a single game. dude, we have the cash to give him the contract he wants. IF we somehow were in a position to land weber i wouldn't be concerned about bolting.

#2202281 Weber Arbitration hearing...

if they were leaning towards a trade who would you offer up? On HF there are preds fans saying that they aren't going for prospects and picks obviously, or a large number of 4th line players. They need some scoring and a replacement Dman. Other teams would offer up nice packages so thats what im interested in.

I'd offer up Franzen, Stuart, Higher Pick for Weber give or take some smaller pieces from both sides (no lebda).

Both these guys are legit players that anyone would want on their team. Stuart is a great replacement for them at about the cap hit they are interested in and franzen is the legit scorer they want. Hudler, Kindl, 2 firsts isn't gonna cut it. With Smith coming up next season and lids probably retiring this leaves our d pretty solid imo.

#2199104 Chris Osgood announces retirement

Posted by dirtydangles on 18 July 2011 - 04:55 PM

pretty disappointed... i mean, there might not be another chance to get a guy like nabby or emery for under 600,000. oh well, in holland we trust...i guess.

#2199018 Things you're hoping to see more of this season.

Posted by dirtydangles on 18 July 2011 - 09:43 AM

Winning More Games
Holding Onto Leads
Datsyuk Doing His Thing
Zetterberg getting at least 50 to 60+ Points
Fewer Injuries
Hudler Improving Or Being Traded By The Deadline
Seeing What Commy and Whitey Can Do For Us
Howard, Helm, Abdelkader, and Ericsson Continuing To Improve
More Kronwalling
More Young Guys Getting A Chance To Play More
A Stanley Cup Championship

He better be well above that or we are in trouble - at least 80 points - im hoping he breaks 90.

#2198966 Things you're hoping to see more of this season.

Posted by dirtydangles on 17 July 2011 - 08:15 PM

hope solo and alex morgan... just kidding... wrong sport.

Z putting up 30+ goals while reaching 90 points - its been a couple seasons

Dats being dats

Fil over 60 points

Howard with .930+ sv%

Hudler putting up decent points - trade deadline move as a result


Ericsson playing like a 3mil player

Brendan Smith break in for a stretch

Kindl establish himself - start looking like a 2nd pairing guy.

Top 5 d in the nhl.

Franzen playing 75+ games

Further than the 2nd round of the playoffs.

Lids in top form still, and a + player this year so people get off his back.

#2197842 Backup Goalie?

#2196001 Red Wings trying to move Jiri Hudler

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 July 2011 - 10:51 PM

I, like many others here, would love to see Jiri Hudler gone. He floats around from line to line. Babcock doesnt know what to do with him. Ive got an idea. Buy him out of his contact. They have the capspace to do so and to replace him. Just my 2 cents :rolleyes:

we wouldn't need to buy him out... we can get a return for him - its just going to be something small at this point. holland doesn't want to give him up for anything and certainly doesn't want to have to buy him out.

#2195984 Forward lines next season?

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 July 2011 - 10:23 PM

Filppula - Datsyuk -Holmstrom
Hudler- Zetterberg - Franzen

Cleary - Abs - Bertuzzi

Eaves - Helm-Mursak

I love the combos. I just think that Abby would do great with Clears and Bert, they are all cut from the same cloth so to speak. That leaves Helm on four, which is almost my favorite line on the team. The "Wheels" line as I will call it of Eaves, Helm and Mursak. These guys will leave almost any line one thru four spinning round watching them fly away. I am really digging this team right now, and I have a feeling it's a best for last sort of thing...we shall see.

I totally agree with these lines, but i also see homer and cleary swapping spots from time to time depending on the matchup with opposition. but ya, agree with the abs, helm positions. i see babs playing that 4th line A LOT. These are very balanced and i would be confident playing all of them anytime. I just wish kenny could get one of yandle or bogo, cause that would make our team scary good.

#2195185 Defensive pairings

Posted by dirtydangles on 02 July 2011 - 12:54 PM

please no white or babchuck. do not want. they are just plugs. much rather have a young up and commer for the future. id rather give up lots now for a young dman like yandle or bogosian than have another plug. lids leaves next year likely and following this years FA sweepstakes, its not likely we land suter next year at all if he isnt re-signed by then. you basically have to suck a players **** to get them now as seen with richards. gotta trade.

EDIT: and kenny doesn't seem to apt on sucking dicks as of late, he wants everything on his own terms including hossa asking to come. so ya, its gotta be a trade.

#2195156 RFA/UFA Signings

Posted by dirtydangles on 02 July 2011 - 11:57 AM

im pretty disappointed at this point. we had the money, there were good players out there, and now we have to settle for the scraps? call me crazy, but i expected at least ONE biggish signing/trade this offseason considering rafi leaving and all our cap space and what happens? Ericsson overpayed, commodore, and re-signing eaves, miller. thats dope...
