#2266901 Brendan Smith watch thread

Posted by Nevermind on 05 March 2012 - 04:48 PM

You do realize that Kronwall was developed by the Wings and came up through the AHL system?

Yes, but I was talking about defenseman developed recently. As was haroldsnepsts' post.

Kronwall came into the NHL eight or nine years ago. Not exactly a recent farm product.

Erickson is a defenseman that would be a 2nd pairing on many other teams in the NHL. He is another player that has come up through the system.

Then we should have signed that Erickson guy instead of Ericsson. Maybe he actually plays physical.

#2266225 Bertuzzi game time decision

Posted by Nevermind on 04 March 2012 - 12:03 AM

Hope Bert gets healthy and finds his form again... Need him and Johan to find their game again

This is what's missing from their game right now.

Some people take sports too seriously and it wasn't even professional

A lot of us take sports too seriously.

But, we don't resort to cheating or intentional harm.

#2265267 Presidents Trophy

Posted by Nevermind on 29 February 2012 - 11:06 PM

Depends on who the President is at the time. :hehe:

Then Tim Thomas refuses to acknowledge that the trophy even exists.

#2265238 Presidents Trophy

Home ice is the only thing that matters.

Nobody's gonna be bragging about a Presidents' Trophy. Well, maybe 'nucks fans since they're that desperate. ;)

#2263887 2012 NHL Trade Deadline Thread - February 27th, 3:00 PM ET

Posted by Nevermind on 27 February 2012 - 02:44 PM

I wish I tapped Holland's phone right about now.

"Papa John's? Can you make a delivery?"

Considering who owns the team, shouldn't he get a hot-and-ready from Little Caesar's? ;)

#2261887 Just Say 'No' to Mikael Samuelsson

Posted by Nevermind on 24 February 2012 - 12:11 AM

Apparently we're interested in bringing him back (according to Bob Duff as referenced in one of the other threads...I haven't seen it for myself)?

Please Kenny, don't bring the logo hunter back. I know we won a Cup and got to a Finals Game 7 with him, but he's definitely not what we need right now. Too much of a perimeter player that constantly takes low percentage shots. He could be clutch at times, but was usually just really frustrating to watch. For whatever reason, Babcock loved him though.

I'd rather acquire nobody at all than get Sammy back. If you guys feel the same way, maybe there's a slight chance the Wings' office will read this. :hehe: Haha...I doubt it.

#2256230 The only teams that can win the cup

Posted by Nevermind on 13 February 2012 - 01:28 PM

Eklund, is that you?


#2254546 Jeff Carter

Posted by Nevermind on 10 February 2012 - 03:18 AM

I still would not like Carter. I maintain that he would be a poor fit for the locker room. More, he will be difficult to trade if he does not pan out for two teams in a row.

Worse. Three teams in a row. ;)

I have to say again...Carter's not the type of player who would play with much grit or heart in the playoffs. Despite his immense talent, he's prone to taking nights off and becoming invisible when the game gets tougher.

At least Franzen shows up in the playoffs and doesn't have attitude problems.

#2253519 Jeff Carter

Posted by Nevermind on 08 February 2012 - 02:31 AM

He had attitude issues in Philly, and he's had attitude issues in Columbus as well. I think that regardless of what we may feel about him, this is going to warn Holland away from trading him.

I agree. Character matters--especially when it's such a long-term, expensive contract.

Also, I don't think he's the type of player who'd play with enough heart in the playoffs.

#2252777 Awesome game by Zetterberg...three assists...

Posted by Nevermind on 05 February 2012 - 02:56 AM

Yeah, that should be fixed. But more importantly, he sure as hell looked rejuvenated in that third period. I think Z should stay with Mule and Bert for a while. Unlike Filppula and Hudler, they create a lot of space out there for him with their size alone.

Hopefully Datsyuk doesn't start slumping for a few games though. Because you know if that happens people are gonna be suggesting we trade him too. <_<

But really, it's surprising how well we've done this season with only one of the two Eurotwins performing at their normal levels. Imagine if BOTH Z and Pavel are firing on all cylinders from here on out!

#2250499 Suter not signing before Feb 27 deadline

Posted by Nevermind on 28 January 2012 - 09:49 PM

The Red Wings will have plenty of salary cap space to make a splash this summer (Zach Parise, too?)

One can dream.

#2246370 subban being shopped

Posted by Nevermind on 17 January 2012 - 02:22 PM

Subban has a lot of attitude problems. But, hey, if there's any team stupid enough to trade him for Ericsson and prospects--it might be Montreal.

#2245905 Pierre......really?

Posted by Nevermind on 14 January 2012 - 08:23 PM

Hopefully it's not a case of Pierre just being his usual idiot self. Maybe he's psychic and sees that Bert and the Wings will win the Cup this year. Thus, making Bert a Cup champion.

#2245647 Next Red Wings Property?

Posted by Nevermind on 14 January 2012 - 02:11 PM

My boss is dating Dan's grandmother, and he, too, says that this is possible.

That joke's getting pretty stale, buddy.

Besides, the reference wasn't that far fetched in this case.
