#2622961 Jurco Showing Off The Hands

Posted by darkmanx on 12 August 2015 - 11:43 AM

Ah gotcha :P it was a little bit.. it was kind of just a general comment too though. a lot of people I know are too harsh on jurco too early.

I know the large amount of forwards on the roster contributes to his role last year but we haven't seen even close to the best version of jurco that we will imo


I love me some Jurco, no issues for me.

Mrazek has never even taken us past the first round time to trade him for bryzgalov and Dan Cleary

I actually kind of miss seeing bryz,he was a character. And for a few days there he looked like a decent goalie too

#2622322 Brandon Sutter traded to Canucks

Posted by rick zombo on 05 August 2015 - 01:23 PM

Signed to five years, $4.375 million per year. 


That Nyquist contract keeps looking better.

#2622306 Who is better Nyquist or Tatar?

Posted by number9 on 05 August 2015 - 11:05 AM

Realgud points everyone. I've been swayed and forced to change my vote again!


The major difference between Nyquist and Tatar is that Nyquist is a goose, and Tatar is a Mexican water bug.


Now the thing about geese is that some can lay golden eggs, like Gus did during the 13-14 season. However, to lay golden eggs, geese have to be loose. Hence the phrase "loosey goosey". Because geese are not always loose, a goose like Nyquist will be streakier from time to time.


Being a Mexican water bug, Tatar is obviously more lively and quick with the puck. But the main advantage of being a Mexican water bug is that it is a made-up insect that only exists inside the mind of Mickey Redmond. So basically the sky is the limit on Tatar's potential and what he will develop into. Don't ask me why Mickey's made-up bug is Mexican.


I know it's boring nerdy science stuff i got from a spread sheet, but the facts are there. Each has their strengths and weaknesses.

#2622258 Stadium series Wings vs Avs 2016!

Posted by HadThomasVokounOnFortSt on 04 August 2015 - 03:41 PM


Read the comments on the article? One guy nailed it..

two thoughts:
1. Either team could still probably beat Buffalo.
2. If Claude Lemieux was playing in this game I would STILL want someone to knock him out.

#2622242 Which prospect will have the best nhl career

Posted by number9 on 04 August 2015 - 12:21 PM


True.  And I would encourage those who don't have an opinion on the matter to refrain from opining.  Which is a heck of a lot more honest than endlessly repeating how great Mantha is, until he isn't, and then going on a on about how great Larkin will be.  If, heaven forbid, he's not that great in the AHL you can bet your ass this same poll will come up a year from now and Svechnikov will be the most common pick.  But that doesn't really say much does it?


Instructions unclear. Louis-Marc Aubry.

#2622173 Who is the better player Zetterberg or Toews. Prime vs. Present

Posted by number9 on 03 August 2015 - 04:26 PM

Take a look at Toews beard and then take a look at Zetters beard. Does that answer the question?

Case closed

#2622207 Which prospect will have the best nhl career

Posted by Dabura on 04 August 2015 - 12:41 AM

Too early to say anything about Svechnikov, though I do feel good about his future. Mantha has all the tools to be a top sniper - but the golden boys of the NHL are your 1Cs, 1Ds, and 1Gs. I believe Larkin will be a 1C, or, at the very least, a damn good 2C. This is a franchise player. This is Zetterberg's successor.


In Larkin, we basically drafted a top-five talent at 15th overall. He's the kind of kid a team tanks an entire season for.
