#2593009 Babcock: Petr Mrazek is starting Game 1

Posted by number9 on 13 April 2015 - 03:58 PM

IMO TB is the sleeping giant in the playoffs this year. If we're going to get out of this series alive I think Mrazek is the right choice right now.

We know what we get with Howard. He'll be good but he's not gonna steal the series. There's a chance Mrazek could that if he's on one of his hot streaks I think. Good luck petey

#2592162 Brendan Smith

Posted by number9 on 11 April 2015 - 12:47 AM

This is Smith's 2nd full season.  Kindl is 2 years older and has been with the Wings around 4 years.  It is funny how Kindl has scored every time he's played since being benched though. 


I context of where drafted and currently I would agree.  In contract terms I feel Ericsson has been the worst on the team. Either way Marchenko should be active in the line up for one of them. 

 

Kindl has played 52 more NHL games than Smith. Not exactly 2 seasons, not even one.

 

Smith and Kindl were both drafted at similar draft positions. Both are of similar build. Both are regarded to have offensive upside. Both make dumb mistakes. Both are prone to defensive lapses. Both have similar point totals (Kindl's ppg has been much better than Smith's the last 2 years). Yet both are not treated the same (by us).

 

I heralded Smith (but never Kindl) when he was a prospect as our next great d-man, as many of us did. It's time to reassess. He's 26 now and going down the exact same path as Kindl. At this point, If you don't like Kindl, you shouldn't like Smith. I would be fine to see them both go.

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

DK - Zidlicky

Quincey - Marchenko

 Wanna put money on it? Or are you not a bettman?

So Smith is still a brain dead idiot




#2590882 Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

Except the last 3-4 years, the girl hasn't been hot.  

 
But those teams have talent and are well coached.  


Talent? Mcgrattan doesn't play for Chi or Minny

He said we'd go to the Conference Finals...Or she said, whoever they are...

 

And yeah, I do. I think hitting is important. Also, a stat they don't keep, taking hits and not caring. We are also bad at that.

 

It's an interesting note to make but I think Chicago gets away with not hitting because they play good, fast puck possession hockey.

 

No, he predicted we'd not get swept in the 1st, and went on to say he "could see us in the conference finals" there's a difference

 

There's absolutely zero correlation between amount of hitting and winning hockey games. Go look at the numbers.




#2590850 Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

Obviously we all hope you are right.

 

But you are blindly guessing this. So if you are wrong, you really have nothing to lose. Because we want it to happen.

 

But you can't honestly feel like we look like a conference finals team. 

 

We don't hit a fly.

 

Predicting not getting swept in the 1st is a whole lot more realistic than predicting the opposite. Even with how the team is playing.

 

We're 28th in the league in hits. Guess who's 29 and 30? Chicago and Minnesota. Still wanna make that argument?

Hey everyone, we will not be going past the 1st round. This is not because the sky is falling, it's because the clouds and stars are plummeting to the ground. See the difference?




#2590767 Team next season?

Posted by number9 on 08 April 2015 - 06:18 PM

 

Yeah they're definitely 2 different types of players. Both goal scorers, but JVR is a quick hands around the net guy and uses his size. Tatar is probably the exact opposite lol

 

They really are 2 guys that could be traded for eachother based on what each team wanted

 

JVR is a power forward

 

Tatar is a mexican water bug

#2590715 Erik Cole out for season, playoffs due to spinal cord contusion

Posted by number9 on 08 April 2015 - 01:54 PM

Wasn't there some conditions to that trade? Like how many games Cole plays and such?


#2590650 Axel Holmström is having a great playoff so far.

Posted by number9 on 08 April 2015 - 07:20 AM

Ya it's not as easy as back In the day but just of recent memory we dealt away jarnkrok backman janmark ... Let almquist go back without getting a decent shot even though I recall him scoring a few times I think?

And also dick axelsson,ryno,ritola and larsson ... Swedes haven't been too good to us of late ... Just nyquist and Andersson of late that's in the lineup

That being said i just read ehn won the award for best player in the junior super elite so let's hope he along with holmstrom make an impact


Granted only 2 Canadian boys have it made it for us recently too. Sheahan and Smith.

The Czechs/Slovaks have been good to us. Mrazek, Tatar, Jurco, Kindl, even Hudler
