#2616180 OT Changes

Posted by number9 on 25 June 2015 - 08:23 AM

Does anyone else think this is going to make Derek Meech a lot more valuable of an asset, since he can play wing and defense?
 
I wonder if this is just what he needs to get back in the show.


Sign Meech NOW


#2615926 Re Wings open 2015-16 October 9 vs. Toronto

I'm always excited for the home opener, but this is good. Let's set the tone of Babcocks next 10 years teach him what it feels like to be a leaf.

You just don't get it.  Because you're part of the PC police and also because you want hockey to become the same thing as women's soccer (which is significantly tougher than Men's soccer BTW).  Admit it. 


Hey, if you don't like it, unread it.


#2615852 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by number9 on 23 June 2015 - 10:51 PM

There has been a little talk about Zach Hyman coming here, but seems like our former coach is trying to pull one over on us.

 

FLA traded Hyman and a conditional 7th round pick (conditional on whether Hyman signs) to TO for Greg McKegg.

 

 

We must stop this former coach from stealing the guys we want!!! He must be stopped!

 

Hyman seems overrated to me. He was never good until Larkin was his C man. Let Toronto have him, and then let Babs cry when he doesn't have Larkin.




#2615837 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Actually, we could use someone like Racine...

 

Crossing the blue line was a death wish in the 90s. Wish the game was still played like that.

Who are you again, and why are you in my bedroom?

 

Just write down the information to your savings account for me and I'll tell the nurse to turn you over in the afternoons so you can watch the birds like you like

kip would only like it if he got to wrestle Brendan Smith at centre ice.

 

Only if Kip gets to wear an NWO shirt and Reilly's brother wears a WCW leotard.




#2615773 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Kent Huskins could be a steady pick up

Franson, too close to Franzen. Next.

Kenny says he'd like to add a top 6 forward and a top 4 dman. Beleskey and Franson are both young UFAs and fit these needs. Does Kenny give them big money and big term? Does this make sense for the long term?

 

Beleskey is this years overrated winger. Did well in the playoffs in a contract year, but really he's just an ok 3rd liner.

This article didn't fill me with any confidence that they'll fix their blue line anytime soon.

We kind have already been doing this and the results have been less than spectacular.  How many seasons are we going to wait to see if these blueline prospects we have will pan out?  Aside from DeKeyser, I haven't seen anybody show anything that would lead me to believe our defense will get better from within.

 

Let me help you believe

#2615662 Players who might be available due to teams cap issues

Posted by number9 on 22 June 2015 - 07:05 PM

Sharp is only signed for the next two years. He'll hit close to 25 goals for those two years plus is RH'd. If the asking price is reasonable then why not

 

It's not

 

And we're the Detroit Red Wings. They are the Chicago Blackhawks. We're most likely one of their last choices to trade with.

I don't we really wanna go with aging vets at this point. Rentals are one thing, but Sharp would be an investment that quickly loses value.




#2615395 Sean Avery - Transition Season

Posted by number9 on 19 June 2015 - 11:26 PM

 

I honestly think a lot of guys like him are brighter than they seem. I tend to think you've got to have something going on in your brain just to figure out how to be as big of an ass as he was. He knew what he was doing, and he did it very well. I think those questioning the sincerity of the article are way off the mark.

 

Was going to basically say this. Obviously, he's not a dumby. He seems to understand himself and his skill set quite well. As a guy who thrived as an agitator, he understood that he was the villain, and so he did the villain thing 110%.

 

Now he's known as possibly the biggest hockey villain of all time, so I guess you could say he was successful in his goals.




#2615348 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by number9 on 19 June 2015 - 03:52 PM

I wonder How much the guy in the giroux Jersey flipping him off would cost.

Seems like he'd bring a good amount of mean.


Already signed with Winnipeg. 2 years 675,000 per.
