#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.

#2312938 Jiri Hudler signs with Calgary, 4 years, $4m/year

Hey-yoooooooooo, watch him throw a 70 pt season like its cool now.

#2310758 Sidney Crosby signs 12-year, $104.4M Contract, $8.7M/yr

Posted by evilzyme on 28 June 2012 - 02:07 PM

So... Crosby just helped everyone out a little bit in terms of the Parise sweepstakes. Gonna be really hard to justify paying anyone over 9 million if that's what Crosby's making.

Exactly, unless you're better than Sidney Crosby and noone can legitimately say that with a straight face to their gm you aren't making past him. He wanted to take a paycut inorder to bring the best for their organization. Can't hate on that as much as i hate the kid. And yes, its a paycut in terms of his skill. Plenty of gms would easily pay him max and he would rate it. Hopefully he can stay healthy.

#2310440 How much would you give up?

Posted by evilzyme on 27 June 2012 - 02:13 PM

I wouldn't even want to dream of taking that contract over. Holland get it out of your mind. Right now. Actually, don't even let it be seeded into your head.

#2308676 Top Swiss-leaguer Brunner to sign with Wings, Babcock has big plans

Posted by evilzyme on 22 June 2012 - 09:23 AM

It will be a 1-year, 2-way contract from the looks of it.

Just the way I like em.

#2308633 Top Swiss-leaguer Brunner to sign with Wings, Babcock has big plans

Posted by evilzyme on 22 June 2012 - 07:46 AM

Interesting signing if he does in fact sign. Not really sure how I feel about it. He's definitley got some skills but it'll be interesting to see how he converts to the NHL. As for the size thing...if he is in fact Hudlers replacement, we've added size lol!

He'll be a 3rd/4th liner if anything, inwhich he should be on Helms wing... as a third line with helm centering and brunner on his right wing with that beaut of a shot and speed... SPEED OVERLOAD BOYS. But seriously, Helmer should have a hell of a season with Brunner... I think.

#2308477 Article about Z being the C

Posted by evilzyme on 21 June 2012 - 12:57 PM

Interesting article. I don't see Fil as a potential "next" captain but then again I am not in the locker room every day.

Lidstrom stated in his presser that the 3 guys he would personally give the C to would be Zett, Filp, or Kronner. I was pretty shocked when he said Filp but if Lidstrom said that he would have his vote, he probably has a nice locker room presence.

Looks amazing Matt, appreciate all the hard work

#2307665 Power Play

Posted by evilzyme on 16 June 2012 - 09:06 PM

With Lids gone we'll probably rely less on point play.

I dont think so because we dont have the size to work it down low and into the dirty areas, especially on the
power play when teams are trying to box it out and force it on the perimeter.

#2305577 Wings interested in Garrison

Posted by evilzyme on 06 June 2012 - 10:09 AM

Here is a source on that Garrison to Vancouver rumor Link

I think he's a great defenceman but I think given the circumstances this off season he'll end up being over-paid by someone.

There is a lot of concern about a bidding war for Suter/Parise but the real bidding wars start when they put pen to paper. Once they are signed everyone who missed out starts spending like drunken sailor trying to sign their #2 and 3 options.

One thing i have against this is that suter doesnt have a long list. He wants to live close to home and he isnt a city boy. He wants space. You cant have a bidding war thats asinine with a small list. Secondly, Parise wants a contender and he wants a cup. I know hes there right now but it doesnt seem likely they will dig themselves out of it. Which brings up the next point, how many real contenders are there every year that ha e the cap space to unload on him? I think people expect this giant bidding war but personally i see it going down quite smoothly. Both players want a home that will contend, one wants to be close to home. There isnt a laundry list of teams that can stand in that bidding war.

#2300947 Would you?

Posted by evilzyme on 13 May 2012 - 06:41 AM

Did you just call Erik Karlsson the real deal? He can throw up numbers as a defensemen, but he can't play defense worth a s***. Luckily, the sens gave him the oms domas and he's allowed to pinch and flow where he wants.

Seriously though, does someone care to explain what was so bad about my original post? -_-
