#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


#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? -_-


#2300761 2012 World Ice Hockey Championships

Posted by evilzyme on 11 May 2012 - 07:02 PM

Sweden was playing really good in 1st but in 2nd Russians got under their skin and Swedes lost it totally. game was lost basically when it got tied 3-3, but I didn't expect such blowout.

Franzen needs to calm down. Yemelin really got the best of him. same goes for Landeskog who took even dumber penalty.

Fasth and Enroth are perfectly fine if the team in front of them stays focused. it was for the first 30 minutes.


PS. Eriksson still rocks. and Malkin is, skills aside, f* goon.


I'm sorry but Yemelin dove like it was frickin Olympic diving. They didn't deserve either penalty that tied the game at 3-3. I would most likely get frustrated if they were calling obvious diving calls like that. The game was an absolute gongshow.

#2300662 Report: Jagr to test free agent market

Posted by evilzyme on 11 May 2012 - 08:47 AM

What's just insane to me is that not even that long ago he said how much he absolutely adored Philly and would never regret coming to them. He stated on his blog that the ice time he was receiving was absolutely nothing to him and he didn't mind. Now? Now, he's pissed and wants to find an organization that will feed him the minutes he wants. Okay man... you're about bat s*** crazy Jagr. So hypocritical. "I mean, I don't get the big deal about Sidney Crosby" continues to talk about Crosby for the next 20 pages. Dude's a hot mess.


#2300643 The Astuteness of Paul Holmgren.

Posted by evilzyme on 11 May 2012 - 07:40 AM

Well, as much as Bryz just straight up sucked it in the first round with MAF, he did keep them in games in the second round. Philly needs to realize they have some giant holes in their defense and they can't expect their tendy to always be there to save your ass. Now, I understand he has a beautiful contract and is paid to be that guy, but history says he will never be that guy. I'm not even sure why and how Philly thought Bryz was going to be an all-star goalie by just coming to Philly. Holmgren is absolutely right though, he should focus on play more than just making retarded comments. The media is half to blame though, they've been down his throat trying to get the funny quotes from him. The guy is barely more advanced than Pasha when talking to the American media.

**edit** someone care to explain how the hell this got neg'ed rofl


#2300596 Bettman wants to tout the "Original 12" now, haha

Posted by evilzyme on 10 May 2012 - 09:30 PM

This would be the biggest slap in the face to the O6 teams.... I can't even equate words right now....
