Couple this realignment with the winter classic and Hello leafs-wings rivalry revival!

Yes. Topic closed..

Haha really tho, I don't think you'll find anyone other than hudler who would disagree :P

#2360973 Kronwall = Current Defense Points Leader

Posted by amato on 24 February 2013 - 11:10 PM

I think that he's definitely coming around as of late, but settling into his new role might mean no more Kronwall-ing; since he'll have to be more responsible.



he's just waiting until the time is right. when everyone thinks he's done kronwalling and no one suspects a thing  :ninja:

Stoked for Tatar, he definitely deserves it.

These are my sentiments. Holland needed to go after Suter and Parise with an open checkbook. 9 mil per for both sound ridiculous? Well, we are almost paying 20 mil to a bunch of guys we get little return out of anyways.

Quincey = 3.7 mil
Bertuzzi = 1.75 mil
Sammy = 3 mil
Monster = 1.75 mil
Cleary = 2 mil
Tootoo = 1.8 mil
Colo = 2 mil
Huskins = .75 mil
White = 1.75 mil

Thats 18.5 mil.

Oh you screwed us, Axe. We are over the cap now.


This assumes we could play a sane Ken Holland from the Bertuzzi signing forward.

I trade Filppula, Kronwall, and Franzen for Cory Perry and sign Perry to 9 mil per.

Parise (9) - Dats (6.75) - Perry (9)
Zetterberg (6.25) - Helm (3) - Brunner (2)
Tartar (1) - Andersson (1) - Nyquist (1)
Sheahan (.75) - Emmerton (1) - Ferarro (.75)

Jarnkrok (.75) - Next GR guy (.75)

Suter (9) - Ericsson (3)
Smith (2) - Lashoff (1)
Sproul (.75) - Ouelette (.75)

Huskins (.75)

Mrazek (1)
McCollum (.75)

62 mil.

Funny how you claim playing a sane ken holland with a completely insane scenario. There's too much wrong to say it all but this team would probably not make the playoffs.... With everyone we have now healthy I think we're much better off.

This is really just a poorly worded response that doesn't seem to have a point or go anywhere.....
Thank you Dan Cleary for all of those clutch playoff goals you have provided in the past, but injuries have caught up with you. You can't skate and you never get an opportunity to shoot.
Here is a positive: Cleary/Bert/White all have expiring contracts

I'm pretty sure Bert's still signed thru next season.

Everyone was begging for more youth.. Not the way we wanted it but we got it.

#2353834 Howard = Average

Posted by amato on 10 February 2013 - 02:18 PM

Call me crazy but I'd call 37 saves on 38 shots thru two periods an elite performance..

#2353794 Howard = Average

Posted by amato on 10 February 2013 - 02:00 PM

Jimmy looks petty damn elite today.. "Average" is wayy under rating him. He's been great all season long.

#2348495 coach disagrees with refs - hilarious

Posted by amato on 29 January 2013 - 04:06 PM

gongshow posted it yesterday along with a few friends but funny video. i could see it backfiring hard on the school though lol.


it's not a school, it's the NAHL (where the kalamazoo kwings / michigan warriors play) but it looks like it's already backfired.... no surprise but the coach did issue an apology today
