#2451530 Mrazek back to Griffins

Posted by amato on 07 November 2013 - 07:52 AM

My guess here is that they want to keep mraz waiver exempt as long as possible (or at least until he's the regular backup) as he'd more than likely be claimed if he had to go thru waivers. Great goalie prospects can be hard to come by.

#2451529 Tootoo Waived

Posted by amato on 07 November 2013 - 07:49 AM

Sortof off topic but ive been checking out Tomas Jurco n the kid looks insane. Only 2 pts behind Nyquist on the griffins. Anyone have any idea when he'll crack the lineup? Next season?

Yusss!! His draft year was the year my brother and I really followed the prospects and he was who we wanted based on our draft position.. we were so happy when he got selected. My guess is he'll get a chance midway thru next season as an injury call up and impress enough to stay up. Can't wait :D he's my favorite wings prospect.

#2451522 Chicago fans steal players helmet off head and dump beer on him

Posted by amato on 07 November 2013 - 07:04 AM

Helmet steal: funny.
Beer dump: stoopid.

It looks like it was someone else that dumped their beer tho.. not the drunken helmet thief.

Either way, (1) good on pardy to not get visibly upset and (2) Chicago needs to invest in more secure boards :P could've been a lot worse.

Edit: double posted. Damn Sprint service

#2451234 Varlamov Arrested

Posted by amato on 05 November 2013 - 11:47 AM

CBJ's Tyutin had some strong (and awful imo) comments on the situation....




“I personally know Semyon very well. He is quite a true, considerate guy. As soon as I heard it all, I realized that it is all blown [out of proportion].

“It’s just American laws are on the women’s side, that’s why they can go to the police for any little thing, complain and bring a lot of problems to men.

“That’s why the only mistake of Semyon is that he got together with this girl.”







#2449432 Franzen believes hes playing well.

This has been bothering me for a long time, is it just me?  Everytime I come on here I look at his face amongst all the other Wings' greats.  I'm okay with Datsyuk and Zetterberg being there, they are the current faces of the frachise and are worthy....but Franzen, to me, just looks so out of place.


should just be this....





edit: he'd have to be in grey though since he's no longer with the wings :P

Funny that he thinks 2 good chances is good.... Funnier that he's surprised he's doing "good"

#2449402 Varlamov Arrested

Posted by amato on 01 November 2013 - 07:45 AM

He did raise a good point at the very end about how this is an isolated incident compared to other sports where this seems to happen weekly, even to the point where the crimes are worse ala Hernadez

That's not the point though.. when things like this happen we shouldn't think of "varlamov the athlete" & only compare the incident to other athletes.. he's a person like any of us and what he did was wrong. There is no lessening the blame on him by blaming the victim.

#2447052 Ericsson out 2-3 weeks

Regardless of who the other pairings are, I'm excited to see 55-65 up top.

#2446607 Ouellet Debut Tonight

Posted by amato on 21 October 2013 - 10:27 AM

Per Khan

Ericsson out and Kronwall still out.

According to Khan Ouellet will be paired with Smith *gulp*
In other news, our #1 D-man is Danny Dekeyser (Good luck Jimmy)

#2445853 McLeod suspended 5 games for hit on Kronwall

Posted by amato on 18 October 2013 - 11:48 AM

The problem is, not only did McLeod not let up.. he specifically targeted the head and nothing else. He will easily get more than 2 games and I won't be surprised if he gets as many as 10.
