Don't know if it's a good idea to throw Weiss immediately against Top 6 competition. He will need some time, probably at least the rest of the season, to adjust. I also would change Abby and Jurco. The former is playing great right now while the latter isn't consistent enough to be Top 6 material yet.


Giving also Dats is back I'd roll with :


Nyquist - Zetterberg - Franzen

Tatar - Datsyuk - Abdelkader

Sheahan - Weiss - Jurco

Miller - Glendening - Helm

Highlights including Mantha's goal.


#2550885 Alfie not playing this season

Posted by darkmanx on 21 November 2014 - 09:48 PM

I kind of felt like he was never "ours".  Having guys like Yzerman, Lidstrom, etc stay for their entire careers, I feel disappointed that he had to leave Ottawa.  That it only turned out to be for one season makes it especially unfortunate. 




It especially sucks since last year with D and Z out half the season we relied on him soo much to help us make the playoffs. Without him last year we miss the playoffs.


Thank you Alfie!

I hope Wings win and salute the crowd after the game.

Let's also give some credit to Johan Franzen.  He seems to be putting up the most consistent numbers he's had since 2009.  He's not tearing the world apart, and is only on pace for something like 25 goals I think, but he's scoring every few games which is what we need him to do.  I'd gladly take 25 goals instead of 30-35 if it means he's scoring in 25 games instead of 10.

Hes on pace for 35 goals actually.

6 goals / 13 games = 46% x 76 games (he's missed 6 games) = 35

Just watched the highlights from the game...
1.  Chris Osgood is the absolute worst commentator.  He's obsessed with "big bodies" and called Byfuglien, Bu-fug-len.  Bring back Murph!
2.  Justin Abdelkader is having an awesome season.  He directly contributed to three goals last night by being strong, tough, and hard working. 
3.  Jacob Trouba is awesome. 

I keep thinking he'll come down to earth (abdelklaizer) but here we are 19 games in and he's still playing awesome. Who would have thought he'd have 14 points in 19 games this year? Not me.

#2550244 Why is Kindl not playing?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 20 November 2014 - 03:20 PM

I don't know if it's fair to say that Lashoff is "worse" than Kindl.  


I mean sure at some things but they have almost completely opposite skill sets.


If we could only combine them into one player frankenstein-style..... Kindlashoff....

#2550264 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Am I the only one that thinks Cleary has looked fine so far this season?  Better than Nestrasil even?

#2550118 Smith and Ericcsson?

Posted by kipwinger on 20 November 2014 - 10:01 AM

There's not, on my part anyway, but this just seems careless. Considering where the team was at that point in the game, (up by 4, 11 minutes left and 6 mins by the time his penalty was over) he shouldn't have been back out. It was pointless for him to come back out, and now his hand is worse off than it had to be. Whether it's Smith's call, Babs' call or the training staff, it could have been avoided. It's more about the situation than a minor injury that occurs constantly throughout the season. 


You're advocating holding a guy out of the remainder of the game, for a cut on his hand, because there's a possibility of infection? 


Can you even think of another time in the last 20 years that a player missed a game due to an infected cut on their hand?  That's how unlikely, and flukey, this injury is.  To suggest that someone ought to know better (regardless of the score) displays magnificent foresight, hindsight, or (more likely) both. 


Athletes want to play.  Coaches want them to play.  They're not going to sit out for something so unlikely.  Can you imagine how deep in Babs' doghouse Smith would be if he sat out the rest of the game because "maybe his hand could get an infection"?  Babs' wouldf****** lose it.

#2550064 Forsberg in HOF, Fedorov equal?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 November 2014 - 06:36 PM

Should be Lidstrom, Pronger, Fedorov and Lindros.  

#2550068 Forsberg in HOF, Fedorov equal?

Posted by Uncle Danny on 19 November 2014 - 07:30 PM

Yeah, I guess I was unclear what I meant. My post does say I think it'll be LIds, Feds, Pronger - and that'll be deserving.  I've just always hated Pronger - I kind of just meant anyone else instead of that guy. There's no way the Kariya should actually be there ahead of Pronger. That fact that you guys got up in arms shows that there's no real question about this class, though. 


I did really like Kariya's character as a player, though - great speed, vision. But his career was messed up by concussions and he played on some pretty bad teams. 


All apologies for having my sarcasm meter turned off.  I think we're in lockstep here.  I'm a big Kariya fan.  He could've done great things were it not for clutch and grab, being slightly undersized and the concussions.  If I had to pick one of Pronger or Kariya for the hall based on who I liked more, it wouldn't even be a vote.  As it stands, ole gap toof gets in and Paul doesn't.

#2550041 Myers close to become a wing?

Posted by DickieDunn on 19 November 2014 - 02:42 PM

Larkin has 8 points in 9 games as a freshman at Michigan.  I'd say that makes him a pretty good prospect.

#2549803 No more dry scrape before OT?

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 18 November 2014 - 07:54 PM

Good to know the GMs are tackling hard issues like dry scrape instead of trivial affairs such as assisting the referees with video replay review.

I see a little silhouetto of a man.
