#2598271 Zach Hyman Won't Be Signing With Florida

Posted by number9 on 22 April 2015 - 12:28 PM

I wouldn't mind if they offered him a contract. They'll be shedding a few and I'm not sure if any of the prospects with a '15 deadline will be signed (McNulty, Wheaton, Marshall or Hudon). Not sure what Hyman's endgame is (I'm guessing he may want to jump right into the NHL), but I'd be comfortable taking a chance on him. He'd have to start in GR, though.


Thinking McNulty and Wheaton will be signed

McDavid reported to the mess that was Erie. Why would he suddenly pull a Lindros now? Don't see it happening, he's a pretty down to earth kid unlike the infamous Lindros




#2596988 Kings' Jarret Stoll arrested for cocaine possession

Posted by number9 on 21 April 2015 - 07:15 AM

I wanna preface this by saying I no longer do any recreational drugs,or hang out with people who do, because I'm an adult, that said.
I've been to a lot of parties, and have known quite a few nefarious cads, but unless all these people are new to doing these drugs, that's not ALOT of drugs.
They'll be able to say his stash was for personal use because for someone with a problem, that much can be done in a weekend.(not entirely by himself, sure, but its not like he had a kilo of coke)
Hell probably get community service and some type of treatment program, which upon completion will scrub the felony from his record.

That is a lot to have in your swimsuit.
Like, that seems like a horrible place to keep it, but whatevs

 

For one guy that's a crap ton of Molly.... bout one weekend of coke  :lol:

 

EDIT: And for the record, I used to do drugs... I still do, but I used to too - Mitch Hedberg

If Babcock, Blashill, and McLellan are our options,

 

I choose Babcock

So the theme this year is Star Wars and Babs in drag I see.

 

God bless the interwebs.




#2596871 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by number9 on 20 April 2015 - 01:59 PM

 
I'm sorry, what's the issue? Aside from actually it being better if Smith swapped with Ericsson?
 
Q and DK have been our best D pairing by far, and I actually like that last combo of Smith and Zidlicky. 


I think he was joking about Cleary

What teams are looking for new coaches? Leafs, SJ?

 

TOR, SJ, PHI, BUF, possibly DET




#2596577 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by number9 on 19 April 2015 - 11:22 AM

Big E 3 goals 12 assists -5
Danny 2 goals 29 assists +11

Any questions? Not to get off the subject but if we brought up Mantha right now this forum would go insane with Mantha fever. At least we'd see the "future" face of the franchise.

 

You're comparing the point totals of a stay at home D-man to a two-way D-man. Scoring points is not Ericsson's role on the team. That comparison doesn't make a whole lot of sense. And +/- is far from a reliable stat.

 

More, DK had 106 minutes of PP time this year, second only to Kronwall among our D-men. Big E had a grand total of 14 minutes of PP time the entire season. So you can see why DK scores more, that's one of his roles on this team. And yet being a 30 pt D-man shouldn't excuse one from bad penalties and bad mistakes. There was more criticism about Kronwall this year than there was about DK which is laughable.

 

Mantha fever is exactly my point. If we brought him up and he didn't perform well everyone blinded with fever would make excuses for him.




#2596519 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by number9 on 19 April 2015 - 02:25 AM

They are in different stages of their careers. Ericsson should be in the veteran phase whereas Dekeyser is still learning the game. They say it takes 3-4 seasons to know what you have with NHL defensemen. I think we know what we have with Ericsson now.

 

Who says that?

 

Everyone pretends to be fair and unbiased, but DK receives almost zero criticism for his mistakes and bad penalties. You don't get a pass for age. When you F up you F up.

 

If we played a new player like Mantha right now, and he screwed up a lot, everyone would say "He's not ready"




#2596515 Trade proposals -looking ahead to next season

Posted by number9 on 19 April 2015 - 02:14 AM

Umm eberle and vanriemsdyk I'd say are pretty big names though, gotta give and weiss is a salary dump .. But your right probably won't

Threw in nyquist cause vanriemsdyk was involved ... Wouldn't throw him in just for Phaneuf

After McDavid, Hall, RNH, Eberle, Yakupov, and maybe Ference, the drop off on that team is enormous. Their ability is acquire zero decent D-men, goaltenders, and roleplayers is staggering.

 

They'll probably get the 1st overall again next year too.




#2595158 We NEED Bigger Ice!

Posted by number9 on 17 April 2015 - 12:03 AM

Nope. I like small NA ice. Creates a tighter checking game and weeds out players who only flourish when not under defensive pressure.

 

I don't know if bigger ice actually translates to more scoring or not (I'm skeptical) but I do believe smaller ice is harder to play on, which contributes to the NHL being the toughest league to play in. And that I like.




#2593593 Franzen on IR

Posted by number9 on 15 April 2015 - 08:27 PM

 
 
 
Bored I guess?
 
Apparently you're going to keep floating them out there until someone takes the bait. 


Not bored. Our record this season was a lot worse when Franzen wasn't playing. And when was the last time a RW of his caliber had his career ended early due to injury? Fischer?

The guy pretty much got us a cup in 2008, and almost another one in 2009


#2593396 S'matter Yzerman, afraid of the jersey you wore for so long?

Posted by number9 on 15 April 2015 - 11:19 AM

f*** Steve Yzerman.  He's not the Red Wings, and the Red Wings aren't him.  He stopped getting the Gordie Howe treatment the second he associated himself with another active NHL hockey team.  Particularly with one that we're playing in the playoffs. 

 

I hope we crush Stevie, the Lightening, the city of Tampa, and the whole state of Florida for that matter.  Let an earthquake crumble it, let the fires rage, let it burn tof****** ash and then let the waters rise and submerge the whole rat-infested place, Stevie right along with it.

 

This is playoff hockey.

 

Just when I think this board is starting to show some class, you go and open your big heretical trash mouth. 

 

"Look at me, I hate possibly the most beloved Red Wing player of all time now... because he makes personnel decisions for the team mine has to play against."

 

Pathetic

 

And may I recommend dropping the whole 'screw dirty tampa' bit as well. Those people can't read anyway, so it's falling on deaf ears.




#2593356 S'matter Yzerman, afraid of the jersey you wore for so long?

Posted by number9 on 15 April 2015 - 07:15 AM

I will love Steve forever. What he did for this city defined my childhood. Still, I don't see how anyone can actively root for the enemy. 
 
Just a little emotional about the whole thing. Especially because our chances aren't incredibly high.  :baby:


No one is rooting for the enemy. We're just not ripping Yzerman. TB has players for that.
