#2344907 1/22 GDT : Stars 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by evilzyme on 22 January 2013 - 08:24 PM

my first impressions of kent huskins: i love him so far, real stay at home defensemen. he's playing it real safe, and at this time, that's what we need. we won't even let someone be the last man back, he'll rotate back around them if they try breaking out. i like him.




#2344552 Red Wings sign D Kent Huskins to 1-year, $750k contract

Posted by evilzyme on 22 January 2013 - 01:42 PM

this thread has officially gone off the hinges. seriously boys? we're complaining about a signing that we haven't even fkn seen. we complain all night about the quincey and smith pairing, the injuries, etc and then Holland wakes up and does something about it. He doesn't tie our hands with a huge signing, no he gets a CHEAP (750k damn near entry level contract) stay-at-home defensemen that can be an asset to them around him. Like I said earlier, Quincey and Smith are BRUTAL together. We've seen it the past 2 games, they just can't play together. Holland gets a straight up stay-at-home defensemen who could possibly be our next brad stuart. Is he going to be Brad Stuart? No. But my GOD from everything i've heard, the guy plays a VERY clean game and did some damage with Demers. Pair him with Smith, allow Smith to play his offensive game and Huskins play his defensive game. "OH MY GOD HOLLAND HOLLAND HOLLAND" REALLY?! We're supposed to be talking about KENT HUSKINS. FFS, get your s*** together LGW. 




#2344477 KHL develops new system for deciding draft picks

Posted by evilzyme on 22 January 2013 - 12:43 PM

PuckDaddy just released this article; http://sports.yahoo....49610--nhl.html

 

it goes to explain that the KHL developed a new system, basically the teams that don't make the playoffs, will play a tournament in playoff format. It will be called the "Cup of Hope" inwhich the team to win the tournament, will receive the first round draft pick. Personally, I think it's a fresh idea, and it does help teams that need it. Unfortunately, there is pros and cons of it. I can personally think that it would get rid of the idea of tanking. Teams wouldn't be so worked to finish #30 for that first overall pick. From another stand point, you would allow the better of those teams, to improve even more. In the end, I think it's an awesome idea. In reality, you're giving the #1 overall draft pick to a team that is basically a bubble team. If they win the tournament, they get the draft pick which will most likely send them into the playoffs. I could see teams being stuck in what seems a worm hole though, always not making the playoffs, and losing within the first round in that tournament. 




#2344467 Jordin Tootoo: Usage? (6:57 TOI vs. Columbus)

Posted by evilzyme on 22 January 2013 - 12:34 PM

Tootoo had only fought Boll twice before last night.

 

Babcock set the fourth line to go out first, and he took them off after the fight. The Wings needed to set the tone early, through a big hit, fight, forecheck,etc. after the Blues game.

This ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

 

babcock had the freedom to put out any line he wanted, he put tootoo's line out there for a reason and they matched it for a reason. that and go watch the replay of that face-off, before the puck even dropped tootoo was backing up. the minute i saw him start going backwards off the face-off i immediately registered, HERE GOES THE GLOVES BABAY, sure enough bada bing. 




#2344446 Red Wings sign D Kent Huskins to 1-year, $750k contract

I'm going to go ahead and guess that Huskins will be paired with Smith. Babcock will break apart the horrible pairing of Smith and Quincey. Smith goes with Huskins, who is a more stay at home defensemen. Smith is the poise puck mover, Huskins should be back for him being mistake prone. Lashoff will probably pair with Kronner, and then White will run with Quincey. I like those pairings A LOT more than what we've been working with.




#2344417 Red Wings sign D Kent Huskins to 1-year, $750k contract

ASSETS: Plays a safe brand of hockey that keeps the mistakes to a minimum. Is very dependable and will play through injuries. gif.gif FLAWS: Lacks the overall skills to contribute on offense consistently. Does not use his good size nearly enough. Is injured a lot. gif.gif CAREER POTENTIAL: Depth defenseman.

 

So you're telling me we have Ericsson 2.0? I certainly hope we didn't just bring in another 200+lb player that plays like he weighs 102.

#2344315 New Defenseman: Guess who?

Posted by evilzyme on 22 January 2013 - 11:10 AM

I tried to be cool and charm a little info from Ansar Khan on the mlive story.  I called my buddy who works for mlive and (half) jokingly asked him to call Khan and squeeze him for info.  I might resort to flat out begging him for info if he doesn't break the story soon. 

 

Clearly, patience is not a virtue I exhibit with any sort of class.

 

Hmm, I was just about to go barge in to the mlive building here in Ann Arbor throwing my hands in the air requesting information about this. SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME DAMN INFORMATION. I can't even be productive on game-days, and then they throw me this information this morning? God. I can't even move from my laptop right now.

#2341016 Lilja Placed on Waivers

Posted by evilzyme on 17 January 2013 - 03:58 PM

Maybe he's the next Islander. Garth Snow has been having a field day claiming players from waivers the past few days.

 

When isn't Garth Snow claiming people?
