#2481274 What's wrong with Pasha? (Mod warning post #57)

Posted by atodaso on 04 February 2014 - 04:37 PM

Babcock just said that Datsyuk is back on Thursday.

 

Edit: It was a phone interview with Sportsnet (Millard, Kypreos, and MacLean). The guys asked him to confirm if Pavel will play on Thursday and he said "that's what I hear".

#2458075 ****(Stuff) no one says about the Wings

Posted by atodaso on 25 November 2013 - 02:57 AM

The Wings are stacked on D... They don't miss that Nicklas guy at all.

 

I'm scared to play against Jakub Kindl and Brendan Smith.

 

Kyle Quincey looks so coordinated out there.

 

Johan Franzen is such a hard worker.

 

Those guys sure know how to block shots.




#2428927 22 Seasons of Domination

Posted by atodaso on 09 July 2013 - 03:53 AM

Have you ever wondered just how dominant the Red Wings have been in the last 22 seasons?

 

The numbers don't lie:

#2406097 Red Wings don't belong in the same rink as the Hawks?

The hammer and the nail have no rivalry. The nail may not like the hammer, but it's disdain for it does not constitute a rivalry because the hammer barely acknowledges the nail's existence.

 

:withstupid: Apparently this guy has never heard of Newton's Third Law.   :crazy:




#2326344 Datsyuk leaving after contract is up?

Posted by atodaso on 21 August 2012 - 09:34 PM

I've always thought Pavel could turn into Larionov in his 40's and get 5-10 goals and about 40-50 assists. Sure he wouldn't be the 90 point superstar of today but he would still be a hell of an asset.
I for one look forward to another 3-4 years of 'superstar Pavel' followed by another 6-7 years of 'Larionov Pavel' :D

Welcome aboard!


#2317345 How bad are we if our roster is now finalized?

Posted by atodaso on 09 July 2012 - 02:15 PM

This is what some of you people seem like:

Edit: Seriously though, a team doesn't improve only by adding new players. How about improving from within?
How about getting back a 80-90pt Zetterberg? A 90pt Datsyuk? A 25 goal Cleary? A motivated Franzen? A 50pt Kronwall? Maybe Ericsson turns into a solid top 4 d-man. Maybe Smith takes a huge step forward and becomes one of those rookies that other teams always seem to have (you know the ones that play great right away instead of taking 8 years to develop). Maybe this Brunner guy scores 30? Who knows?

When I opened this thread, I thought it was going to be about something entirely different.

OK, Holmstrom better be coming back for another year now.


#2296089 Who will be Vancouver's 2012-13 goalie?

Posted by atodaso on 23 April 2012 - 12:42 AM

They'll probably get more for Schneider in a trade because he's younger and because of Luongo's contract. Also, Luongo has a NTC and Schneider doesn't want to be a back-up any more so they will have to move one of them.

Posted by atodaso on 22 April 2012 - 04:44 PM

One thing is for sure,I'd trade Franzen for Brooks Laich without thinking twice


I'd trade him for Mike Green.


#2295403 Will #5 be back?

To me this look says: "I'm not going out like this. This is BS."


#2294868 Why wasn't Smith given a chance in the playoffs?

Posted by atodaso on 20 April 2012 - 10:43 PM

Quincey, Ericsson, or Stuart. They were all bad in this series.


Ericsson was actually not that bad. He was very good on the PK and at times outplayed Q and Stuart 5-on-5.
Stuart is a veteran and while I agree that he was terrible (and I really didn't expect anything better from him), he is still a highly paid, experienced d-man so there is no chance he gets benched.

Holland traded our first round pick for Quincey. And as much as some people here rag on him, he's still a better option than Smith right now. To me the problem was with our stale offence. Smith will hopefully get his chance next season. Stuart will be gone for sure.

Difference or not we all knew this team was a longshot to win the Cup. Smith would have gotten some valuable experience by playing in this series and there's no way he'd be worse than Stuart or Quincey were


Come on guys, get real. No team in the league would've benched any of our top 6 d-men in favour of a rookie d-man. It doesn't matter how much potential he has. This was about winning now. And our best chance was with the guys we had. Unfortunately, it wasn't good enough.


#2294756 Why wasn't Smith given a chance in the playoffs?

Posted by atodaso on 20 April 2012 - 10:07 PM

Like he would've made any difference. Kindl didn't play a second in the playoffs so I'm not sure why you're bringing him into this.
