#2628311 Roster Moves by the Wings

Posted by krsmith17 on 04 October 2015 - 09:51 PM

I'm also pretty disappointed that Jensen got sent down before Ouellet. I think Jensen was the much better player of the two, lead the entire team with a +8 rating and lead all defenseman with 4 points (0 goals, 4 assist) and 7 shots on goal in 6 games. And he's also that highly coveted right handed shot going for him. I honestly think he's a better all around player than Ouellet, but then again, I'm one of the very few that aren't all that high on Xavier. Sure, he's a good player, and does a lot of good things, but in my opinion, he does everything average, nothing really stands out to me, other than him being smart and safe. And I guess that's good for a third pairing guy, but in my opinion Jensen brings that, plus a lot more. He's an unbelievable skater, very good passer, and for the very few mistakes he makes, he has very good recover ability. Very disappointed to see him still behind Ouellet and likely Marchenko as well. He should be ahead of both by a mile in my opinion.

Oh, that's interesting.  There will be overtime after the game no matter the score so they can try out the 3 on 3 thing.

I'm starting Mrazek against Carolina on Saturday, might be a must win for 3rd spot


Heck, I am starting Mrazek for the playoffs if its my choice.  The kid is a winner at every level he has played at.  If the Wings are going to crash and burn this year like 90% of LGW members think they are, may as well put Mrazek in so he can learn a tough lesson about the playoffs and come back stronger next season.

#2328864 Wings sign Carlo Colaiacovo to 2 year deal, $2.5m cap hit

Posted by ShanahanMan on 15 September 2012 - 11:13 AM

Believe it or not points aren't all that plays into salary for defensemen.

Carlo is a decent puck moving defenseman, he's nothing more than an average to below average in terms of defense, Ericsson plays a ton more in shorthanded situations, and is much more physical. Different players demand different salaries depending on the role they play. One also had much more leverage on the team, Ericsson's not a world beater by any means, but he does provide something the wings don't have much of on the back end, toughness, and size. Which the Wing's lost quite a bit with Stuart.

Fair points, but I gotta disagree with you on Ericsson being more physical. While the guy does have the size advantage, he's also a pylon and rarely makes use of it. He is a decent puckmover though.

Haven't watched too much of Carlo so can't really comment on his defensive abilities but yeah, the general consensus seems to be he's a solid 5th/6thdefender when he's healthy. Also, he's got pretty good numbers.

Well then, if we're throwing around fantasies, I want 5 mintues alone with Kate Upton.

Let's be honest, you only need 2.


#2310450 How much would you give up?

Posted by ogreslayer on 27 June 2012 - 02:33 PM

Doubt Holland would make a move like that, and doubt he will be traded. They will either find a way to sign Parise and keep Kovalchuk or Parise will sign elsewhere. The only way I would consider doing this trade if he infact is up for grabs is if we could commit highway robbery. Some ridiculous offer that we just couldn't say no too.

Highway robbery? Maybe something like the rights to Hudler, all the $1 hotdogs you can carry, & Karen Newman's home phone number? Get 'r done Kenny! :colgate:
