#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

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.

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

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.

#2232398 Mcdonald backing up Jimmy

Posted by Nevermind on 03 December 2011 - 08:13 PM

Conklin's played 3 games.

I really like MacDonald, but you gotta give Conks a fair chance.

#2228623 Crosby coming back

Posted by Nevermind on 21 November 2011 - 11:14 PM


There's a difference between matching up against a player and saying who's better.

Sure, Crosby's the most talented offensive hockey player in the world and would certainly score much more than Zetterberg over a full season no matter what teams both of them are on. But, that doesn't mean Z can't shut him down in a direct head-to-head match-up.

So yeah, I'd still take Z over Crosby if they were matched against each other in a playoff series. Unless he really has some nagging injury or something, I think Zetterberg can still be almost as effective as he already has been in the playoffs the last four, five years.

I might be being too much of a homer, but I can still honestly say Hank's a much, much better defensive forward than Crosby. Everything I just said goes for Datsyuk as well.

So will Bettman declare that tomorrow night is the true official start of the NHL regular season?

#2227038 Jonathan Ericsson Watch Thread

Posted by Nevermind on 18 November 2011 - 03:39 AM

But I try my best not to watch Ericsson...

#2226296 Datsyuk knows he has been awful.

Posted by Nevermind on 16 November 2011 - 07:19 PM

I'd try this...



Basically switch Fil and Cleary. It's always seemed like Cleary plays better with Z than Pavel. The two were dominant along with Mule in the '09 playoffs. And Filppula should give Pavel a guy with speed who can handle the puck too.

#2221996 Commodore to play tonight

Posted by Nevermind on 03 November 2011 - 03:30 PM

Kindl has played much better than Ericsson. I've been pleasantly surprised so far by his outlet passes and pinching decisions. Oh well...I suppose it's too embarrassing to sit a $3M+ defenseman. <_<

Looking forward to see what Commodore can do though.
