#2470362 Alexey Marchenko called up

Posted by number9 on 03 January 2014 - 12:26 PM

Marchenko? Is that the kid who in 2010 was ranked 12th overall among European skaters, but told teams he only wanted to play in Russia and went undrafted? The same kid who the very next year told the Wings he would play for them if they took him, and the Wings drafted him with their very last pick in the 9th round?

He's probs just a plug. 9th round picks never pan out...

#2469046 Westgarth to the Calgary Flames

Posted by number9 on 31 December 2013 - 03:24 AM

They traded a first round guy for him. A guy who's big, but hasn't progressed in their system. When it comes down to it they traded a first round pick for a ANOTHER pair of boxing gloves. This is a loss for the flames. Even if they were salvaging a poor first round pick, it's still a loss. Especially since Westgarth will not give them anything they don't already have. Not surprisingly, Burke is as dumb as Feaster.

Now for the big question:  Did she drop him?

If he did actually do it, I hope she did. Otherwise I hope he dropped her.

#2466100 Blues Re-sign Steen 3 Years 17.4m

Posted by number9 on 19 December 2013 - 01:17 AM


I would agree with that. Even if it's a bit on the highend side Steen is a steady 50 - 70 pts guy with the rising cap and his team needing all the offense they can get, the deal is fair for both sides. Hopefully this doesn't leave them with enough internal budget money to sign Backes.

Backes is one of those guys that's so hard to find. I think he's just as unique as Datsyuk and Zetterberg. A guy that can score at that level and at the same time play with that level of physicality is a gem.

#2466094 Why the Red Wings get injured

Posted by number9 on 19 December 2013 - 12:50 AM

1. Why are you getting so upset and insulting over an online forum? Relax sean avery. 


You're refutation has been illogical. My OP said enforcers can put big massive hits. 2. Further i gave example of how Zetterberg's herniated disk is a result of beating he's taken over the course of the season. Star players on average shouldnt be getting hit as much as our team's players do. 3. If we had enforcers they can reduce the amount of bullying the Red Wings players take. Go read the posts made throughout the thread. Take your head out of one dimension and keep an open mind to a debate. 


Just because I made an OP with an introduction to a topic doesn't mean i wont add further thoughts on the topic. And is ESPECIALLY doesnt mean i can't point out other strengths of having an enforcer. 


Additionally, since you decided to make it personal 4. (as anyone with clear psychological insecurities does in an online forum debate). I will continue to add further points:


Enforcers not only provide protection and prevention from star players getting injured over the course of the season, they can also bring momentum to the team. The Detroit Red Wings are a soft team that still thinks they can manage with puck possession. However, due to the losses of great players over the years, they are no longer the dominant team of the NHL as they once were. Being in a new conference, with new players and lower skillset, they must adjust. Having an enforcer can add to this, it can protect the veteran players from being abused on the ice which leads to long term injuries, i.e injuries such as Herniated Disks that are caused from wear and tear of the spine. 


Now please, unless you have something relevant to say about hockey instead of mentioning "high school logic" we can continue. I'm sure there are forums online for that kind of nonsense. But this is a hockey forum. 

Fallacies you committed:
1. Ad hominem/Abusive fallacy
2. Post hoc ergo propter hoc (and you can't even prove the post hoc)
3. Texas sharp-shooter
4. Fallacy of composition

And those are just a few.

On top of your flip-flopping, you consistently argue with poor logic and reasoning. Hate to be the **** that picks apart your arguments like this, but you were begging for it after calling Echolalia "illogical", and I think you only reaffirmed his "highschool" assertion.

The saddest part is I'm a pro-enforcer guy like yourself.

You bring shame to my people.

EDIT: My advice to you is don't make a controversial assertion around here unless you can back it up. Most LGW members know their sh**

#2465420 Wings muscle?

Posted by number9 on 17 December 2013 - 01:47 AM

I dont think we lack muscle, I think we lack heart/fire. After hitting Dats or Abby like that a guy like McCarty would have gone bezerk. Not saying that puts points on the board but I do think it really brings the team together and says hey lets beat these MOTHER *******

#2465351 Milan Lucic involved in a Vancouver club altercation

That's awesome that Lucic didn't fight back, especially based on how drunk he appears lol

#2465201 Wings muscle?

Posted by number9 on 16 December 2013 - 02:44 AM


Personally my ideal fourth line would contain Westgarth, Peluso and Orr (that's less than 4 million for a whole line!) - that's not a lot of cap spent (= more money for the other 3 lines) and boy oh boy this line could easily go toe to toe with the toughest ones in the NHL. Sure Neil would fight Orr or Westgarth, kassasian too but then ...well fair game against Spezza, Karlsson and Cowen I bet a lot of money, the guy would bring his cleanest game and not even looking at Pasha.


tl;dr yup more muscle and a change of attitude is really needed

I whole-heartedly agree. We have all the talent, and nothing to back it up. WE ARE PUSHOVERS

I whole-heartedly agree. We have all the talent, and nothing to back it up. WE ARE PUSHOVERS

29 other teams acknowledge that muscle/grit/intimidation are at least part of the game... except for us

I don't think Holland is the problem. No one could have foreseen how truly bad Weiss, Samuelsson, Cleary, and Quincey have been. Sammy has had success here and elsewhere. Cleary's success in the playoffs seems to be purely a fluke. Quincey had success everywhere but here. Weiss was Florida's #1 star, yet he's nothing here. IMO those are the glaring problems and they seem to be rooted in the system being a problem or our pro scouts being a problem.

#2462652 Howard = Average

Mrazek's only 21. Gotta think Monster will have 2-4 more years here in the D, unless we end up going with Petr over Jimmy

#2462566 Weiss

Posted by number9 on 09 December 2013 - 05:39 PM

I would have to disagree about this being a good team, imo a good team would not have Andersson on thier third line, nor Helm on their second

If Helm keeps playing the way he has been, he's got the job IMO. Kind of like him trying to break his mold of career 3rd line C

Same with Andy. At many times now our 3rd line, with Andy at C, has been our best line out there.

Of course if this doesn't continue, I'll deny this conversation ever happened and promptly edit these posts

#2462450 Weiss

Posted by number9 on 09 December 2013 - 02:16 AM

Would like to see this next year

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Franzen
Nyquist - Helm - Tatar
Abdelkader - Andersson - Bertuzzi
Miller - Glendening - Tootoo

Kronwall - Ericsson
Smith - Dekeyser
Kindl - Lashoff


If Alfredsson wants to come back I'd obviously be fine with that, a big FA addition wouldn't hurt either. Still a good team though.
