#2348503 coach disagrees with refs - hilarious

I was afraid, between the tux & the sunglasses, that he was going to break out a little Gangnam Style on the ice.  Could break a hip doing that.

#2348472 Kindl's future...

Posted by ogreslayer on 29 January 2013 - 03:18 PM

I completely agree, and I don't mean to sound like I think the guy should be given a spot just because he's been around a while.  He needs to sink or swim, BUT I also think it's unfair to suggest (not that you did) the guy is sinking when he hasn't been given any kind of regular playing time, and when he does, he's typically utilized incorrectly.  Tonight he'll be paired with a shutdown guy, he should be able to play to his strengths (the transition game), and he'll get some time on the PP.  That's using his skill set properly.  If they do that for 3 or 4 games and he still doesn't look good, then I'd say it's fair to cut him loose. 

Definitely hear you there. Tough to give up on a guy who was your highest draft pick in a decade & still hasn't hit the age when most d-men in the league "get it" according to most experts.

In a way, what Kindl is going through is similar to Huds imo. Happy needed to be a top 6 forward to be effective, yet year after year the attitude seemed to be that he had to prove his worth on the bottom 6. To say that didn't fit his wheelhouse would be an understatement. Round peg meet square hole.

I am fine with playing Kindl. he needs to play so we knwo if he has a future with us or not. Q should be on the bench though, not lashoff. Once White comes back healthy and no further injuries, buyout quincey. it was a mistake to resign him. Time to man up and admit it, so we all can move on.

Won't happen this season. Teams had to use their one accelerated buyout prior to the start of the season. If Q's bought out, it will have to be this summer.

#2348391 Wings Looking For Defenseman

Posted by ogreslayer on 29 January 2013 - 11:55 AM

White needs to come back. If defense is a huge weakness, we can't afford to lose any competent defenders. On the blue line, Kronwall and White would be untouchable. Smith is very close to being untouchable, unless they can land someone his own age but better, and Lashoff should stay to develop. I think Big Rig has a NTC, so we are atuck with him. Buy Cola, Huskins and Kindl are fair game, though Huskins is proving his worth.

On the front end Flip is expendable. He's good, but we can do without him if we get something good in return.

I wouldn't call White untouchable given that he's a UFA at the end of the season. If the Wings are out of the race & a team wants to pick him up for the stretch run or playoffs, flip him for an extra pick or prospect if possible.

#2347368 Brunner Equals Clutch/Work on Signing *merged

Posted by ogreslayer on 27 January 2013 - 11:53 AM

I assume everyone knows that Sutherland plays hockey and is a huge hockey fan, and actually named his character after his ice skates.  Just a fun fact...

He named his skates Jack?   :tounge:

#2346786 1/25 GDT : Wild 3 at Red Wings 5

Posted by ogreslayer on 25 January 2013 - 09:31 PM

Coincidence that the Wings are looking much better tonight?  The same night that Darren Helm returns to the lineup?  I think not....

on the fox detroit coverage they are saying he wants to be call "Brooner" now. and apparently Parise wants to be called "Par-easy". Noone gives a s*** about the latter.

Zach Parcheesi?

Brunner can now have any nickname he wants

#2346075 Brunner is a start, but.....

Posted by ogreslayer on 25 January 2013 - 11:38 AM

Obviously I'm getting restless wanting to see these guys. We need shots, shots, shots.


I love Hank, but I would say his shot is above-average at best. And Pav/Fil never shoot.


Need more shots....


The way the first 3 games have gone, I've needed more shots to get through them too.

#2346063 Brunner is a start, but.....

Posted by ogreslayer on 25 January 2013 - 10:40 AM

Teemu Pulkkinen is listed at 5'11", right handed RW, ridiculous shot, coming to North America next season.


Tomas Jurco is in Grand Rapids now, 6'2" RW. He's having a slow start, but he could end up being a sniper at the NHL level.


Martin Frk is playing over in Czech Republic, listed at 6'. likes to shoot. has a cannon.


we actually have a pretty deep prospect pool up front. these are just a few we haven't seen in the winged wheel yet that we might in the next couple of years.


Frk's in the Q playing for the Halifax Moosehead actually.  47 points (16g, 31a) and a +15 & 56 pim in 33 games.

#2346060 PK Subban

Posted by ogreslayer on 25 January 2013 - 10:13 AM

Not sure if it's already been covered, but how can they be $2.5-3M apart? What is Montreal offering and/or how much does PK think he's worth?


Given the minutes he plays, points he puts up, plays in all situations, decently physical, decent shot blocker...got to think Montreal is offering at least $3.5-4M. Does he think he's worth $6-7M? Or are the Habs just really low-balling?


Assuming he's not actually insane in his demands, I'd like to get him. But I'd assume Montreal would want an NHL defenseman in return, and we don't have any to spare. Doubt they'd take Lashoff.

From everything I've seen, the Habs offered a 2 year deal in the $2.5-2.75m a year range.  So basically, he's asking for twice what the Habs offered & also wants the deal to be 5 or 6 years instead of 2.

#2345951 PK Subban

Posted by ogreslayer on 24 January 2013 - 04:56 PM

An offer sheet for Subban would have to be absolutely ridiculous for Bergevin NOT to match it.

Very true.  I wouldn't mind Kenny floating out a 7 year $6-7m contract just to force the Habs to match & screw up their cap situation like Holmgren did with Weber/Nashville.

#2345514 Ian White Out 2-3 Weeks

Posted by ogreslayer on 23 January 2013 - 03:18 PM

Somewhere in the Chicago suburbs Brett Lebda is holding a red wings voodoo doll and waiting for his phone to ring.

Can we all at least agree that the moment Lebda signs with the Wings is the moment that the 2013 season is officially over?
