#2577780 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by amato on 02 March 2015 - 07:00 PM

Would like to see them rest Quincey a few games and roll with....

Kronner-Smith
DD-Zid
Ericsson-Marchenko

Gives Smith a little more responsibility; hopefully he runs with it.

DD-Zid I have a feeling would be a great pairing.

And Ericsson on the bottom pairing gives Marchenko more of a veteran presence.


I think it's at least worth a try like that. If Quincey needs some more rest anyway.

Personally, I'd rather see our bottom six be:

Pulks-Weiss-Jurco
Miller-Glendog-Andy

See if that third line can get a little offense going.

#2574893 Patrick Kane, out anywhere from a month to rest of the season

Posted by amato on 25 February 2015 - 08:21 PM

 
Long as the player(s) they pick up are UFA. If not, they'd have to do some scrambling before next season to get Kane back in and be under the cap. Plus either way they lose whatever assets they gave up to fetch those guys. I guess it could be worth it for a shot at another cup, especially if Kane gets back while they're still playing...


Yeah I was definitely thinking UFA(s).. and they'd have to give up some assets. So it'd definitely be a bit of a gamble. Depends on how they feel about their shot at the cup this year I suppose.


#2574363 Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

Posted by amato on 24 February 2015 - 11:54 AM

Howard will start the next two years at least, mraz will start backup duties next season.

After that, they'll split time for a year.. riding the hot goalie.

Then consider trading howard during/after that season when he has one year left on his contract.

 

That's what I think anyway.. depending on the wings' cap situation and if Mraz develops like he's expected to. 

 

 

 

To answer the original question though, yes. obviously howard is our playoff goalie. 

He's had a couple rough games.. it happens to all goalies; especially ones coming off of injury. 

There's plenty of time for him to get hot before playoffs start.

Just heard them mention that big E donates $50 per hit to charity helping under privileged children. That's so awesome.

I'm just still shocked that nbc argued against a Blackhawks goal....

Aaaand that's why all goals should be reviewed/challengable


#2571657 Getzlaf calls Ovechkin a diver, O says "I have hair"

Posted by amato on 18 February 2015 - 09:03 AM

Getzlaf's a jackass.  I watched that game.  The slash he calls Ovie out on was DEFINITELY a slash, right on his hands, and Ovie didn't react much at all.  He shook his hand, and pulled his glove off to look at it, but that's normal.  He didn't throw his hand up, or act like he'd been chopped down.  Then again, we are talking about the guy who did this when he was losing to Detroit so maybe Ovie's on to something.

hahahaha perry & getzlaf's combined frustration in this gif though.... I could watch it all day. :P




#2571497 Time for Teemu?

Posted by amato on 17 February 2015 - 12:45 PM

 
Can we just start calling Andersson Emdog from now on? I miss me some emdog.


Speaking of emdog.. the khl seems to be giving him a warm welcome....


20-year-old Alexei Kudreman assaulted former Detroit Red Wings forward Cory Emmerton with 4 seconds left in regulation in a good old-fashioned Vityaz way. Emmerton had to get 5 stitches for laceration received during the incident. Hes currently being diagnosed for concussion.
