#2310091 Red Wings make contract offer to D Justin Schultz

Posted by Rick D on 26 June 2012 - 02:30 PM

"Year after year"? That's a head-scratcher considering Kindl has only played one full season in the NHL.

Now I am totally convinced you have no clue what you are talking about. Obviously you didn't watch him since you think he's played "year after year" in the NHL, but he had a month stretch during injuries where he was an absolute beast. Not bad for his first full season in the NHL.


Wasnt this last season the 2nd season where Kindl had an oppertunity to be in the line-up, but couldnt make it??

I seem to remember him compeating with Salei the season before.

#2308837 Trade Ian White?

The guy played on out top pairing last year,

We just lost two of our top four,

And he blocks shots with his face.

I wouldnt be up for trading that away right now.

They beat the #1, #2, & #3 in the west. That's a pretty awesome accomplishment. Good luck to them in the finals.

"You donít attack any more than you do as a center," Filppula said. "But usually as a center you attack against all five guys, or four guys. Now as a winger you have one or two guys ahead of you.

"Being a (winger) you can think more about playing in the offensive zone than you can when youíre a center. At least thatís how I felt when I was playing center, because you were always worried about taking some of the responsibility off the defense."

Zetterberg said that playing the wing is prompting Filppula to shoot more.

#2265446 Current standings

Posted by Rick D on 01 March 2012 - 02:38 PM

Here they.come....Blues have passed them and Nashville is hot on their tail...I said on deadline day they would drop to 3rd in central and then possibly 6th in conference...

if i recall someone said :hysterical:

Is it funny now? 1st overall before deadline, no moves to make team better, now 4th. I still believe Holland should have done more than kick the tires. Here's to me being wrong!

We have played one game since the deadline, and won.

I hardly think our current position in the standings has much to do with the lack of trades at the deadline.
