#2319090 Are Russian players "really" lazy

Posted by X13WINGS13X on 14 July 2012 - 01:47 AM

Russians players are often lone stars who might work hard but don't function very well in a group. This is one reason the russian national team rarely has any success, all those stars but they can't play together.

HAHAHA. Your lack of hockey knowledge astounds me. The Russian national team has been ranked in the top 2 for the last 5 years, the last 4 being ranked #1 in the IIHF international Men's Rankings. They haven't fallen out of the top 5 since 2004. As far as their playing style goes, the system is based on the betterment of the team, fundamentals that were placed on the program during its starting Soviet years by Anatoly Tarasov who describes the ideal player as "having tactical intuition, precision work with his partners, perfect orientation, a feeling of the game, the ability to see, understand, and even anticipate the actions of the closest and furthermost opponents and partners. And what is most important, all these qualities must be retained and put into use in the toughest moments of the game, when the pitch of a game is at its highest, when the emotions of players are as taut as bow strings." These are the characteristics that Tarasov placed upon his team when founding the program in the USSR and these characteristics still hold true to the system today. Watch an international game played by the Russian nationals; every player, even guys like Semin and Radulov, are working their ass off for their team and anything it takes to make them win.

Extra bodies = opportunity for the Nash deal. If the price stays high on Nash and a deal with Parise isn't met. Ken now has the option to dish away assets for a guaranteed top-six forward in Nash, while still having NHL talent throughout the line-up. By no means is he done yet.

#2195548 kostitsyn: will the wings make a run at him?

Posted by X13WINGS13X on 02 July 2011 - 07:43 PM

well that to me sounds like a positive. add the toughness that a 31 year old AHLer cant bring(see Mike Commodore).

all kidding aside, ive watched him play quite a bit and he seems to be that natural shot that would fit in well with our forwards and would play great on the datsyuk's wing with filppula

#2194187 Wings sign D Mike Commodore to 1-year, $1m contract

Posted by X13WINGS13X on 01 July 2011 - 02:09 PM

I guess Holland needed some place to hide hudler and Mike Commodore's hair was available for 900k and the body attached came for an extra 100k.

#2193602 Wings not offering contract to Jagr

Posted by X13WINGS13X on 01 July 2011 - 11:22 AM

I wonder how much he demanded?

my guess: 9.85 mil., a vial of leprechaun tears,an angel's pubic hair, and Sidney Crosby's virginity.

#2186975 Draft Talk

Posted by X13WINGS13X on 19 June 2011 - 06:11 PM

I agree that size and strength is something a team needs, but i also believe it is impossible to tell how a player will adjust to this league before he is in it. a player may be big and strong, but not use it. ie: Jakub Kindl - 6'3" - avg .917 hits a game - Darren Helm - 5'10" - avg 1.56 hits a game.
this team shouldnt draft for size they should take it after its been in the league(free agents and trades). thats why Khokhlachev would be the ideal pick for the wings, hes like a russian Briere
