#2327106 What a feeling!

Posted by evilzyme on 28 August 2012 - 12:05 PM

During the beginnings of each game last season for the most part, the Joe would play what seemed like "flashdance - what a feeling" but it seemed WAY longer than the actual song. I come to you, Letsgowings community, in search of what you think that song was. It's always played before Put your hands up for detroit, and the faceoff. I searched on redwingslive but couldn't find a good enough video to showcase it exactly, so i leave this for you to see what i'm talking about.

Just the intro with the keyboard or whatever is played much longer, someone for the sake of whatever you believe in, know what i'm talking about here.

#2327096 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Great. Now I wish we'd gotten Craig Smith. Cupcakes, dinner, and a concert? And ice cream on top of it?

Gett'er done, Kenny.

I just can't stop when I see Craig Smith's name...

#2327089 Alright. How good are we going to be this season?

So you think Nyquist is going to be on the 3rd line over Brunner? Put Nyquist on the 1st line with Pavs, Brunner on 2nd possibly 3rd rolling with helmer and you have a more realistic lineup. Nyquist isn't going to play 3rd line minutes, especially this season. Who knows also, maybe brunner will become that winger we were dying for. He has the shoot first mentality and knows how to pot em.

#2326439 Should Kronwall have to answer the bell for his hits?

Posted by evilzyme on 22 August 2012 - 12:22 PM

i completely disagree with eliminating fighting in the sense that it would cause more harm. it would give everyone a free pass to go play dirty, go throw a hard ass hit folding a top 3 skater. then what? we just scream, "hey! stop that please!" fighting has a place and time in hockey, unfortunately thats what's changed over the generations. everyone looks to fight when its not needed.

#2326382 Datsyuk leaving after contract is up?

Posted by evilzyme on 22 August 2012 - 07:39 AM

I remember his interview when he talks about his mothers death and everything, really sad interview and a great inside look at who pasha really is, anyways.. in that interview he stated that he doesn't want to play til he's 40 and he didn't want to finish his career in the NHL. That being said, he also says the normal I love this place and what not. I couldn't see him being moved to any other team or sporting another teams sweater, but i certainly could see him playing out his remaining "hockey years" in the motherland. Would I be upset? Absolutely, it would break my heart just like I cried like a little baby during Stevie Y's ceremony and Nicky's. Would I disown him? Absolutely not, nothing but respect.

#2325488 12-13 Biggest Surprise

Eaves and Miller are spare parts.

You obviously haven't watched the Red Wings very long, I know this because of your statement right there. Eaves is one of the few select right handed shots on this team, inwhich case he is also one of our best PK'ers. Miller has shown, has the experience, and will beat Emmerton on the depth charts anyday of the week and twice on sunday, triple if its a midday game.

#2325305 12-13 Biggest Surprise

TheAxe is that you Emmerton? rofl. Dude, we understand you love the kid but don't let it fog your vision. He is not ahead of Miller and Eaves in the depth chart, to even comprehend that is uncanny. If anything he's going to get packaged for the D man Holland is looking for after the CBA is announced because we can't afford to lose him strictly off waivers and he isn't good enough to crack the lineup this year. Emmerton has wheels, but he certainly isn't the fastest prospect. Just let me ask you this, in your honest opinion you're going to tell me that you would rather dress Emmerton over Eaves who is one of our best PK'ers and right handed shots?

#2322935 Keith Yandle to be Traded?

Posted by evilzyme on 30 July 2012 - 07:01 AM

They won't go for Franzen, they want a good center and that's exactly Filp. He has potential and everyone can see it. The hard part is showing that we have leverage and are about to sign Filp to a longer contract but obviously he isn't going to sign one just to get dealt a few days later for Yandle. I'm hoping he can get some value in the market right now. BUT, in my person opinion, I hope we don't lose Filp. I know it's been said over and over, season after season, but I still hold a lot of potential in Filp. Him and Pavel have some outrageous chemistry and can work the puck, just never given the solid chance to play any respectable time together to showcase it. This one is hard, get the D we need... or hold on to our beautiful center with in MY opinion has a great ceiling.

#2321896 Doan staying in PHX 4 yrs $21.2 mill

Posted by evilzyme on 25 July 2012 - 01:54 PM

I'd sign him for the 6.7 mil if it's for 1 year. The market is getting thin for scoring wingers. To get Ryan we would likely have to give up Flip, Nyquist and a 1st. No way Doan chooses the Wings over the Rangers IMO. So who's left? Once Semin is gone the market is dry. Our group of forwards is decent. But our blueline sucks. Does Kenny shoot his bullets for Yandle? Does he take JBO's inflated contract? Or does he sign Kubina for the 3rd pair?

12 mil is alot of cap space to leave on the table going into next season.

Leaving that much cap space isn't a bad thing. It's been said numerous times, quoted numerous times that Holland is willing to wait until late into the season to find his man. He isn't going to overspend, we know this. Walking into next season with that much cap space can be deadly, but very good for us. Especially with the deep pool of FA in 2013. I'd swallow my pride for a season to cash out next year with the deep pool, no need to make stupid rushed decisions right now.

This is exactly what you don't do Damien Brunner. Take some notes, and avoid this at all cost.

#2321838 Perry and Getzlaf

Posted by evilzyme on 25 July 2012 - 11:06 AM

At what point during the Kings run did they beat Columbus in the playoffs?

When they made it and CBJ didn't.

#2319661 Should Pav and Z play on the same line for the majority of this season

Posted by evilzyme on 18 July 2012 - 06:15 AM

Both great centers and both play an outstanding two way game. Unless theyre needed to shut down a top line together i think they should be split. Id rather split the shut down abilities of both across the top 6 and have both center 1 and 2 respectively. We just need to give pasha some support inwhich case he's been lacking. I still think pasha and filp are a deadly combo. Bring brunner to second line with hank and push filp to 1st w pasha.

#2317730 St. Louis Trades B.J. Crombeen to Tampa Bay

Posted by evilzyme on 10 July 2012 - 01:12 PM

The OP is alittle misleading to me(sounds like they got BJ Crombeen for 2 4th rounds and 1 5th round), so here is alittle breakdown of the trade. The 5th round pick belongs to TB now

To TB:
BJ Crombeen
5th round pick 2013

4th round 2013
4th round 2014

#2316254 Brunnstrom Update - Expects to sign new 1-yr 2-way deal

Posted by evilzyme on 06 July 2012 - 08:49 AM

He has a great attitude and I like his thinking process when it comes to the club. He knows what happened last year and he plans on not allowing it to happen again. Now to have a great summer and come out swinging early at training camp. Show em what you got kid.
