#2538634 Holland interview with Mickey comment about a trade

Posted by number9 on 06 October 2014 - 07:58 PM

Eva was a legend.  I miss his super serious font, especially in the context of super serious font telling me Hudler can put up 70 points playing with Datsyuk.  It brought even more seriousness to his serious statistical analyses.

Aha I forgot about his font.

You know who I miss a ton? Crymson. I think he disappeared when this last bunch of knuckle heads rolled in. That guy was my daily Xanax bar. Come back Crym!

I still want revenge for the abuse Pasha took, period. It shouldn't have been up to a guy like Sam to do that stuff, if McKee would be in the AHL call him up but he isn't so using a guy for 5 minutes if needed, is not the worst thing in the world.
Hockey isn't soccer but with the way the game is changing, rats taking over and divers all over the place it's getting closer..which isn't a good thing for guys who like real hockey.
Callahan may be an agitator but he isn't a pure rat like Marchand, Burrows

Me too. Revenge is a must. Dishing out a clean hit must be paid for in blood.

If only..I mean you can send him to the AHL play sheriff there and when the Leafs, Bruins, Sens or *grrr* Pens with Scuderi are rolling to town call him up.

Send him to the AHL??? Have you lost your mind??? A knuckle dragger of his caliber would be wasted in the AHL, not to mention he would NEVER clear waivers. Shop wreckers like him don't just grow on trees Frank. If they did all the basement teams would be able to load up on them too.

Haven't been here long enough, so I don't know anything about these guys but personally I never get too attached to arguments on a forum. I don't care if others think that I'm a debbie downer or whatever, I always try to keep a realistic approach, if others prefer to take the more optimistic thing that's fine also.
I mean after all, the forum would be pretty boring and low activity if everyone agreed with everyone right ? I've been on such a forum for 1 month (mods kicked everyone, who didn't share their view of not only hockey but also other non hockey stuff) and the funniest part was those so called "mods" where all from hockey-teams which existed  for less than 9 years ! so basically plastic clubs.

Your approach is the realistic one, others are just optimists. Rightttttt

#2538511 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

So we have a 7 million (possible 8 million once Cleary plays 10) 5th line.


#2538255 10/3 Preseason Game: Detroit Red Wings vs Toronto Maple Leafs

So Franzen looked good tonight huh?

#2538252 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Posted by number9 on 03 October 2014 - 10:28 PM

Until he signs I think this is all bs he's saying so the media lightens up ... I personally think this is his last year in detroit

From what I've seen Babcock has never been the kind of guy to throw up media smoke screens. He means what he says. If he says he thinks he'll stay in Detroit, I tend to believe that's the most likely outcome.

Ppl who think Babs is leaving I tend to group with the same ppl who thought fersure Dats was leaving. It's all doom and gloom till he stays, then those ppl who were 'so sure' he would leave disappear into the woodwork. Not saying that's you, but that's the tendency I see anyway.

I can usually pick out your sarcasm, and I know you're a sarcastic bastard 95% of the time :lol:, so I can only assume (hope) that was yet another sarcastic comment lol...

No really. Think about it. Callahan? Callashan? Shallashan? Shanahan.

I rest my case.

#2538108 TSN Luke Schenn could be available

Posted by number9 on 03 October 2014 - 09:20 AM

But he's big.  I mean, look at the size of him.  Who cares if he's any good or not?  He's big.  That's all that matters.  We could pair him up with Mike Mckee and teams would be scared to death.  Because NHL coaches, the league over, are bewildered by club footed meatheads.  You know, cuz they're big.

Luke Schenn sooooo biggggg. Red Wings soooo small. Schenn, huge gargantuan scary player. Wings, tiny microscopic players.

One of my first topics dies a firey death lol

If your topic doesn't disintegrate into Cleary, Quincey, or Holland hate, or a discussion about enforcers, u r an LGW god. No worries brother, this is standard, thanks for the talking point.

#2537984 Are the wings underrated?

Posted by number9 on 01 October 2014 - 09:12 PM

Ah, I remember when smith was but a griffin and LGWs coming savior.

In those days things were simpler. Ericsson sucked but goddamn it we had Lidstrom.

Now Ericsson rules and Smith sucks.... How times change.

#2537813 Are the wings underrated?

Posted by number9 on 30 September 2014 - 09:28 AM

I don't think you can underrate potential. I think this team has potential, but they are rated where they should be - lower than most Wings fans would like or expect.
We do have some solid youngsters, but there are big question marks about how they match up with the rest of the league and, if you were building a 'dream team' (even in a salary capped scenario), there are a lot of guys who would get replaced on all four lines... The Wings aren't in a position where they can bring up a bunch of rookies without making big changes, either. Jurco is the only one who doesn't need to clear waivers who has more than a couple games of NHL experience. The fact that some of those 'prospects' will clear waivers through 29 other teams, including Buffalo, the Isles, Edmonton, Calgary, etc. means we're not skating 20 'A' players. Other 'holes' have been identified in numerous posts on these boards - Kindl, Quincy, Cleary, etc.
To me, the telling series was Boston last year. Yes, we were fighting through a number of injuries, but they skated circles. Most of that team playoff team is skating full time this year and that's expecting a lot of improvement by a lot of players and in a lot of areas to expect a completely different result. I do still believe, as others have said, if we can stay relatively healthy, a couple young guys continue to develop, and we catch a couple breaks, we have a shot at outperforming the predictions and keeping the streak alive, but I don't think that makes us underrated by any stretch.

Am I the only one who didn't think Boston 'skated circles' around us?
