#2578980 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 05 March 2015 - 02:19 PM

As for Marchenko I am pretty sure you need to send the player down prior to the trade deadline for him to be eligible for the AHL playoffs. (silly rule) I did not see that he went down. I do not know if there is an exception if the player is on IR.  

You can't send a player down while he's on IR. They said they would send him down when he's healthy. They sent Jurco down (only on paper) to make him eligible for the AHL playoffs. They had to do that because Jurco hasn't played in the AHL this year, but the paper transaction I guess makes him technically an AHL player. They wouldn't have to do that for Marchenko since he's played substantial time with the Griffins. I think he'll be sent down to keep him playing. There's no sense in keeping him as the #7 and allowing his game to get rusty.

The Wings should buy up as many of those sticks as possible. That way he'd have no choice but to sign with us in the off-season.

What the hell does Lebron James know about hockey?

But we are a surprise.  Remember, this was the year we were missing the playoffs.

 

Every year is the year we are going to miss. Just like every year is the year the Leafs are going all the way.

 

Neither are ever true.

#2578259 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by number9 on 04 March 2015 - 01:58 PM

Watching the Maple Leafs lately has got me thinking quite a bit about wildlife documentaries.  I feel the same as those cameramen must feel when they follow around the water buffalo recently bitten by a komodo dragon.  You know he's poisoned.  You know he's dying.  You know the end result.  Even if they don't.  This is only going to get uglier between now and the draft, when (mercifully) the final agonizing death throes should end. 


This year has been rough, as well as the 45 before it, but I think next year is the one for them.

A first offense should just get a warning.

 

A second offense should get a fine.  Pun in-ten-ded.

Retaining half the cap is probably the only way the rags would've included duclair too.. whether they could've fit yandle under the cap or not.

Obtaining him probably had something to do with the yotes' motivation for retaining half the cap hit.

He's going to look great with domi.. and potentially one of McEichel. The coyotes have a real good chance to build a long term contender in a few years or so if they do it right.

 

Not after Old Man Doan squashes them with one of his patented body checks.  Gotta let these little punks know you don't get anything easy on the Arizona Coyotes roster.  It's Doan's way, or the broken bones way!




#2578204 What's with the "giving players hamster names" obsession?

Helping this chain of (somewhat on topic) hi-jinx come to fruition may be my proudest moment on this forum.. Long live Justin Maple Spitter.


Me and Jimmy do it all the time in gdt's. Sorry

1st, awesome GDT as always.

2nd, that third line though. That's the kind of depth you need in the playoffs.. I'm so stoked for the rest of the season/post season.

Call me crazy but I think we win in the shootout, 3-2. Tatar and nyq each score in relation and the shootout.
LGW!!


You're... you're crazy, man. I like you, but you're crazy.

Go look at Dion phaneufs hero rating.

 

Careful.  You might owe Phil Kessel an apology.  And as I understand it, the Maple Leafs employ of team of lawyers for round the clock protection from hockey fans.

There is no defending James Neal.

Weiss means white in German.
And calling zetterberg zoidberg is almost sacrilege

#2578003 What's with the "giving players hamster names" obsession?

Posted by 55fan on 03 March 2015 - 02:48 PM

I find this hilarious since I name my hamsters after Red Wings.

 

Anyway, as previously stated, the players refer to each other by nicknames and we pick up on it.

 

Sometimes we make up our own, but usually it falls to whatever we hear them saying in interviews.

 

In some cases, it is easier and shorter.  When a player is new, a difficult name can be tough to spell.  Referring to a player as Abby can save time until people learn to spell Abdelkader.  People still can't spell Valtteri Filppula, nor can half of them pronounce it.  Val, on the other hand, requires no trips to the Wings' website.

Add in that Swedes usually double the S in names ending in "son" whereas other Scandinavians may not, and that some people of Swedish descent have eliminated the double S after living in the US for generations.  It's nice to have a nickname so as not to have to go back and check.

 

If there is more than one player with the same name, it can avoid confusion, although we rarely have the trouble.  Just throwing it out there.

 

Sometimes it's just to make typing easier.  We all know to whom we're referring when we say Z, Q, XO, or E. 

 

I think the first response had the correct answer:  It's a hockey thing.
