#2530250 Please Help Me Win GDT of the year.

Posted by FlashyG on 06 July 2014 - 01:41 PM

Right now I'm currently locked in a very tight back and forth Battle with the Philadelphia Flyers in the semi-finals of the competition.


I need help getting votes to move on to meet the Sharks in the finals.


Not only is their GDT a wall of text they have been quite disrespectful towards my work. 


You need to have an HFboards account already to vote, but if you have one please follow the link cast your vote




Thanks for any help you can give me.

#2530182 Who is this player

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 July 2014 - 09:59 PM

Pierre Turgeon?




Although, I have no idea who it is.  Could be a fun new game on LGW?

#2530166 What's best for Mantha?

Posted by LeftWinger on 05 July 2014 - 08:57 PM

if he makes the team, its because he deserves to be here. He isn't gonna make the team to be in the bottom 6, so he isn't going to be playing 10-12 minutes a game. If he makes the team it will mean playing 25+ mins. If he doesn't show good enough to make the top 4 minute getters, then he should and will go to GR. If he earns it, he should start and stay here...even if he goes into a slump. All players slump and have fight through it.


if you ask me, its looking like its his spot to lose. From all indications he us going to get the longest look if any rookie in years!


I like these a top 6, if he makes it:


Z - Pav - Mantha


Nyquist - Weiss - Franzen (Alfie if he signs)

Start the year in GR and is the first call up for injuries.

I am as pissed off as most Red Wings fans today out of our lack of ability to sign (any) big name free agents, and even more pissed off that our only substantial move was re-signing Kyle Quincey to a contract that pays him as much money as Jonathan Ericsson, more money than Johan Franzen and only 0.5 Million less than Nick Kronwall makes (still a top 10 defenceman in the league).


But as much as we can complain about Quincey, and predict that next season will be a complete disaster - I am seeing more and more tank for McDavid posts - I ask myself when did Matt Niskanen become worthy of a 7 year contract? Isn't Dan Boyle 37 years old coming off a 36 point season on a great team where he was a -8? Why did the world end when we didn't sign these two? Lets just try to use some perspective before we completely turn our backs...


Last season, in a 16 team conference - we finished 1 point behind 6th place PHI and 3 points behind 5th place NYR (who eventually played in the Stanley Cup Final) while having an historically bad (by our standards) record of 5-9 in the shootout. More importantly, we also had our top 3 forwards (when measured by salary) D, Z and Weiss miss 37, 37, and 56 games respectively. I hate to make excuses, but of the 6 teams in our conference that had more points than us last year, not a single one of them could relate to our injury situation (in terms of man games lost to star players). For ex. the top 6 scorers on the Boston Bruins all played in atleast 78 games, and 5 of them played in 80 or more - please don't tell me this would not have helped us or improved our position in the standings.


If we look ahead to next season - what do we have to be optimistic about? Well, we haven't really gotten worse since last year... No we haven't signed any big names either, but we still haven't lost anyone yet. (Alfie remains to be seen). Can you say the same about...


#1 BOSTON - Subtractions: Thornton, Iginla, Meszaros, Moore. Additions: None.

#2 PITTSBURGH - Subtractions: Jokinen, Vitale, Orpik, Glass, Engelland, Niskanen, Conner. Additions: Comeau, Ehrhoff.

#3 TAMPA BAY - Subtractions: Lindback, Aulie, Desjardins. Additions: Nabokov, Boyle, Blunden, Stralman.

#4 MONTREAL - Subtractions: Briere, Gorges, Vanek, Gionta, Blunden, Dubnyk. Additions: Parenteau, Gilbert, Malholtra.

#5 NEW YORK - Subtractions: Pouliot, Stralman, Richards, Boyle, Bickel. Additions: Hunwick, Glass, Kostka, D. Boyle.

#6 PHILADELPHIA - Subtractions: None. Additions: Jones.


The point here is that outside of Tampa Bay, the 5/6 teams that had more points than we did last season have not improved either - and to take it a step further, I certainly feel that Boston, Pittsburgh, Montreal, and the NYR have all regressed. In terms of teams within striking distance who have also improved, NJ and WSH certainly stand alone.


When you consider the possibility of a healthy team, the emergence and continued development of our younger players, the cap room and prospect pool we have to acquire pieces (which Holland MUST use at this point) and the lack of improved teams conference wide + number of teams in our division who have taken a step back (BOS, MTL, TOR, OTT,) I don't think the sky is falling as fast as it seems.

#2529354 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by Shaman on 02 July 2014 - 09:09 AM

Well as I said before, he would panic and sign KFQ and I would call him Ken Doll for the rest of time.

#2526981 Ehrhoff or Niskanen

Posted by germanwing on 29 June 2014 - 03:41 PM

Would like to see a german player with the wings, who is worth it.

But we need a Righty!


#2524263 Detroit re-signs Gustavsson 1 yr $1.85 mill

Posted by GoWings1905 on 17 June 2014 - 02:27 PM

Don't like it at all. Mrazek doesn't need another year in Grand Rapids with nothing to prove. Monster is too much of a risk as a backup and quite frankly, he wasn't good the second half of the season either.

The Blues need scoring depth, badly. Maybe Nyquist would interest them? Mantha?


:shock: No. Way.

#2523004 Tatar vs Nyquist

Posted by drumnj on 06 June 2014 - 11:21 AM

Looks like the Slovakian's really want Tatar to win.

#2522529 Redwings great R/H D men.............?

We're dangerously close to not having a single righty on the roster. That's...pretty silly.

#2522115 TSN POY: Hertl vs Gustav Nyquist

Posted by FlashyG on 29 May 2014 - 04:13 PM

Tatar is up in the semi finals facing Oshie and Hertl has been brought back by the TSN panel to make this semi final a 3 way.


So far Tatar is up, but San Jose's scripters are catching ours.

If you want to add to Tatar's total here's how you can auto vote every 6 seconds.


First go here


Using Chrome hit F12 to bring up the console 

- In the upper right corner of the console there is a button that looks like ">" but with three - behind it. Click that.

- In the bottom line at the blinking cursor paste the following in and press enter.


setInterval(function(){$("#page-wrapper > div > div > section.plays > div.match-play.ng-scope.right-play > button").click()},6000)


If you want to vote even more open a new Chrome window (NOT A TAB) and repeat the process, you can do that as many times as you want.
