#2676587 Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

Scores? Hits? Plays aggressively instead of getting swatted off the puck? 

 

A combination we need!

 

Great sign.

Yet Nyquist didn't improve and sank to Abbys production. We've got a $4.75 million contract scoring 17 goals and your concern is the guy who scored 19 and does everything else. Didn't you criticise this idea in Mantha's thread? "If a guy scores and doesn't do much else vs someone who can do everything else".




#2675997 Datsyuk - someone who works for JLA told me he's sold his house

Posted by kickazz on 15 May 2016 - 01:06 PM

I looked his house up and it's still listed for sale. Price went down by $250k on April 27th though.

I'm like 99% sure that's his house. The agent listed is Milstein and the photos of the interior have all sorts of Red Wings pics like Hank/Hull/Datsyuk. Yzerman, and some Datsyuk jerseys.

I knew there was speculation, but didn't find any firm info about it. 

 

Sorry




#2675488 IIHF World Championships

Nyquist has been one of, if not the best player on Sweden so far in this tournament, and still gets s*** on by Wings fans, as he has been all year... Nyquist is a very good secondary scorer, but for whatever reason some people will always expect him to be more than that...


Lol let it be dude. After a while when people talk s*** without making any sense it's just good entertainment to see how clueless they present themselves to be.
Nyquist had a bad season with the Wings but has been one of the best forwards in the championships. That's that.

That's my issue though, I keep hearing that Nyquist had a "bad" or "terrible" season when it's not at all accurate. Nyquist had 43 points, which was good enough for 5th on the team in scoring, only two points behind 3rd (Larkin and Tatar). This after seeing a fairly significant decrease in time on ice from the previous season. The entire team struggled to score, but Nyquist was the furthest from the team's biggest issue. Our power-play sucked d*** and that's where Nyquist's numbers went to s***, where again his minutes were slightly decreased. Believe it or not, Nyquist actually outscored his previous season 5-on-5. He had 31 points this past season and 30 the year before in, despite playing over 100 less minutes...

You know what? I'm tired of people using "the pc police" as an excuse to continue to say s***ty things. It's not cool to be a racist. It's not cool to be a homophobe. It's not cool to use derogatory terms for special needs people. It's not people being "sensitive," it's people calling you out on your bulls***.

 

Agreed, people think they can say whatever they want, and get pissed off when they are called out. The sad thing is, they truthfully dont comprehend that what they are saying hurts others. Then when someone calls them out on their BS they fall back on the "PC Police" argument. I admit that sometimes people can be overly sensitive now a days, but there there are certain things that cross a line, and comments related to racism, homophobia, and putting down people with special needs falls into that category.

Can I call you a jackass then? Is that cool?

 

Are you 12? Can you not have a civilized discussion without it being reduced to a name calling contest?

 

How about keeping the thread on topic rather than argue over what insults are okay or not? Newsflash: insulting other members is against forum rules. Like I said earlier, perhaps you should read them. 




#2675024 Fixing this mess....

Posted by kliq on 03 May 2016 - 05:42 PM

Yes the risk is higher. If you look at most top 50 Dmen lists for the league, it is about a 50-50 split between 1st round picks and 2nd round picks.

 

Its actually even less then that, I posted this a few months back. Ill post again due to the relevance:

This was based on the top 20 D-man (based on total points).

 

1/20 drafted in top 5

2/20 drafted between 6-10

3/20 drafted between 11-15

1/20 drafted between 16-30

13/20 drafted out of the first round/not drafted

 

1) Erik Karlsson -15th overall

2) Brent Burns – 20th overall

3) Kris Letang – 62nd overall

4) John Klingberg – 131st overall

5) Roman Josi – 38th overall

6) P.K. Subban 43rd overall

7) Oliver Ekman-Larsson – 6th overall

8) Mark Giordano – undrafted

9) Tyson Barrie – 64th overall

10) Ryan Suter – 7th overall  

11) Shea Weber – 49th overall

12) Drew Doughty 2nd overall

13) Dustin Byfuglien - 245th overall

14) Brent Seabrook – 14th overall

15) Duncan Keith – 54th overall

16) T.J. Brodie – 114th overall

17) Andrei Markov – 162nd overall

18) Keith Yandle – 105th overall

19) Shayne Gostisbehere – 78th overall

20) Kevin Shattenkirk – 14th overall




#2674543 This hits the nail on the head......

Hold on Hold on.

 

We are 11 (ELEVEN) years removed from the Salary cap being institutied.

We are 5 years removed from Rafalski retiring. 

We are 4 years removed from Suter signing with the Wild. 

 

Are people seriously still trying to throw up these excuses?  That's pathetic.  If you can't adjust to something in 4 years you failed.  Period.  Let alone 11 years.  That's a joke. 


 

We haven't realistically competed for a cup since 09.  That's now SEVEN YEARS.  Expecting a team to compete for a cup once in 7 years is not asking too much nor does it make us "spoiled fans".  You want to know what fan base is happy just making the playoffs?  The Maple Leaves.  Is that who you want to be?

Actually, based on historical evidence, expecting to compete for a championship even just once every seven years is asking too much. Most teams will have periodic down times, often lasting that long or much longer. I would also say that we were in fact realistic contenders from 2010 through 2012, and maybe even 2013 given how those playoffs went. Maybe not among the top few favorites, but at least 2nd-tier.

 

Teams that are good will eventually come down. I would wager that every single team that is a contender this year will not be so every year for the next 15+ years. Most will probably not have more than a few years being near the top.

 

Things change with time. It's the nature of reality. Being happy that we can contend for the playoffs during our worst stretch in more than two decades doesn't mean we will always be happy with that result. To even suggest it does is short-sighted and foolish. We are near the point now where the old regime is either gone or declined past the point of relevance. We have several young players promising enough to give us reason to think we will start trending back up in the near future. We're still missing a few pieces, even if what we have already pans out, but we're also in better position to gain those pieces.

 

But whatever. Not going to waste anymore time now. This conversation has been had countless times over the last few years.

You obviously have a ridiculous idea of what "adjusting" means...lol

Majority of the people in Michigan think Little Caesar pizza is terrible. They also think for $5 dollars sometimes it's worth it. When I need some cheap pizza on the go I stop by Little Caesars. When I need quality pizza I can name 25 other places in Michigan. And that doesn't even include Jets, Pizza Hut, Dominoes. 

 

Part of the reason people are "upset" with the name is just that ^.  Little Caesar's is terrible Pizza. It's low quality and crap grade. If they named it the Pizza Hut Arena it would probably be better received. 

 

Just listing some reasons why people have issue with the name. Illitch named it after his pizza business, which I get. But most people also think his pizza tastes bad and shouldn't be named for an original 6 legendary team arena.

 

The Red Wings are LEGEND-

 

wait for it.

 

DARY. 

 

Joe Louis (with his 66 wins and 52 by Knockout) was LEGEND 

 

wait for it.

 

DARY.

 

Little Caesar's is not legendary.

 

Wings fans are spoiled. They want cool stuff. 

 

- Think about it this way. For years people in Michigan have made fun of Little Caesar's pizza. Just so happens that Pizza place is about to be named after their sports team arena. PAYBACK! 

 

Bottom line Wings fans are spoiled and think they are entitled.  Sorry but they aren't and that petition is a joke will not change a thing.  I'd be more concerned with the product on the ice rather than where that product is being played or the name of the arena it's played in.

Nonsense. This is why the article is a "fanpost" and not by one of the actual writers of WIIM:

 

"Lifetime fans of the organization – especially those of younger generations – no longer have confidence in the team. It’s clear that this is exactly what Holland intended"

 

Yes, Holland has intentionally sought to undermine fans' confidence in the team. Dumb fan post is dumb.

Yeah not everyone has to play defense. Especially if a guy can spend his time scoring 50+ goals.
