#2438115 Capitals to host 2015 Winter Classic

Posted by amato on 21 September 2013 - 11:41 AM

Are they going to have 4 other winter classics in 2015 as well?
Or Denver???

 

a colorado / detroit one in the future would be sweet.. you kno, after they become relevant again :P 




#2437153 Jensen out till December/January after fight with Tyler Bertuzzi

Posted by amato on 17 September 2013 - 10:35 AM

Was a very heated scrap. Bertuzzi agitated the hell out of Jensen, which obvi led to the fight.

Hard for me to be mad at lil Bert though. His job is to get under opponents skin and scrap from time to time, and he did just that. How can he prove himself he doesn't do what it is that he excels at.

 

agreed. yea, it sucks that an injury occurred but lil bert was just doing what every other prospect at camp was doing; trying to show what he could bring to the team in the future. I'm sure he didn't intend to injure jensen




#2437134 Preseason Game #1: First Impressions

Posted by amato on 17 September 2013 - 07:57 AM

 
Calle actually got 9 games with the Griffs at the end of last season.  On the Almquist front, it's just too bad that we can somehow transplant his brain into Smith's body.  


Dr. Rahmani could pull it off :P


#2437120 Devils sign Brunner 2 yrs. $2.5 million AAV

Posted by amato on 17 September 2013 - 06:16 AM

Tatar = Brunner minus the sissy.


This. & with more potential imo. I like Brunner and all but I'd rather have Tatar in the lineup.

anyone else stoked to see mantha play?!

 

LGW!




#2436572 Next Stage of Prospects: Who Makes the Cut?

Posted by amato on 14 September 2013 - 06:13 AM

You forgot frk. I see him and jurco breaking into the line up in 2-3 years and becoming a deadly combo soon after.

Also, mantha. I'm excited to see him progress. 2-3 years for him too, he seems promising


#2436099 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by amato on 12 September 2013 - 10:47 AM

I have a ton of respect for any player who takes that big of pay cut (and on a short deal) to stay in Detroit.

Say what you will about the roster and cap situation, but Cleary is a one loyal Wing.

 

agreed. cleary's heart is the size of the grinches.. but like, at the end of the movie




#2435974 Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff makes it official: He's retiring.

Posted by amato on 12 September 2013 - 08:02 AM

It's about time kipper got out of Joey MacDonald's way.


#2435973 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by amato on 12 September 2013 - 07:55 AM

The guy would be a perfect fit for Nashville or New Jersey, both are desperate for offense and youth he provides both. Hard for me to understand why they haven't signed him yet.

 

his agent sucks. I'm sure that's why he's yet to sign.




#2435912 Report: Cleary to sign with PHI, 3 yrs, $2.75m/yr, NTC

Posted by amato on 11 September 2013 - 07:12 PM

It's like Cleary is an ex girlfriend and Kenny just won't let go :P


#2435822 Lines Thread

Posted by amato on 11 September 2013 - 10:55 AM

Per Khan lines at camp:

 

Z, Dats, Abby

Frazen, Weiss, Alfie

Nyquist, Andy, Bert

Miller Emmerton Eaves

Sammy Glendening Tootoo

Jurco, Sheahan, Tatar

 

 

looks like tatar is pretty low on the depth chart

 

 

i wonder what tatar did to piss off babs

 

good to see jurco getting some work in though!   :thumbup:




#2435251 Prospects Tournament

Posted by amato on 06 September 2013 - 10:43 AM

We won, 3-1. Anaihbdetsjwou with two goals, Sheahan with one. Paterson was sort of hung out to dry on the Wild's lone goal. Up next (today!): Dallas. I guess they're heavily favored, or something.

 

 

in terms of prospects, that top six is filthy!! haha love it. cannot wait for the likes of jurco, mantha, frk, jarnkrok, etc to be on the big squad.

I'd really like to see:

Z-pav-alfie
Mule-Weiss-nyq
Tatar-helm-bert
Abby-andy-toots/miller

Kronner-E
Deke-kindl
Smith-Q


#2434935 Wings sign Stephen Weiss, 5-years, $24.5m

Posted by amato on 04 September 2013 - 10:37 AM

 

Yeah, I'd imagine he'll have career years with us.  In an interview with the Free Press (I think), Alfie said that Weiss was someone that teams prepared for when playing Florida.  Now with Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Franzen, and Alfie on the team, opponents will probably be focusing less on Weiss and the ice will open up a bit for him.  60-65 pts. is my guess for this season. 

 

 

as long as he beats filp, its a win :P
