#2547217 THN: 30 NHL teams, 30 I-never-saw-this-coming starts for players

Posted by number9 on 05 November 2014 - 09:36 PM

Anything plus anything equals franzens trash.

Trash is always trash. Sorry I prefer quality over trash.

 

Ah yes, so you admit to blind Franzen hatred without a rational basis. Glad you can at least admit it. Bravo.

The kids are kids the only one who has be OMGAMAZING was nyquist. Dat and z are clearly at the point who can't carry a team alone. They need help around them(scoring winger).

 

Kids are young + Dats and Z are old = trash Franzen, gotcha. I don't know how that makes sense, but I was never good at math so I'll have to take your word for it.

A year ago Marian Gaborik had 6 goals (14 pts.) in 22 games for Columbus.  He had 1 assist in 5 games for Los Angeles.  He has never played a second of defense in any of his 14 year career. 
 
He had 14 goals and 22 pts. when paired with Anze Kopitar in the playoffs and was in consideration for the Conn Smythe award. 
 
Semin sucks right now.  Gaborik did too.  Neither are bad players.  They just need to be in the right place to bring out the best in their game.


If Datsyuk don't like him, I don't like him

I've wanted a first rate shooter on Datsyuk's wing since Hossa left (that year he had almost 100 pts).  That's the last time we had someone to bury the myriad chances that Datsyuk creates.  When Gaborik was available I wanted Gaborik.  I wanted Nash before that.  Now that Semin's available I want Semin. 
 
There's no mistaking my obsession with this one guiding principle...we have one of the best playmakers of the last 20 years and nobody to finish for him.  Dats and Z are both going to get 20+ goals this year, with the right line combos so will Nyquist and Franzen.  Semin would too.  And Tatar will end up close...but it's iffy.  Think about that. 
 
It's not about Semin as a person.  Sometimes I think fans get attached to players' personalities as if professional sports is a popularity contest.  To me, Alexander Semin is nothing more than one of the best shooters in the NHL...and the only one available.  That skill set would look awfully nice along side one of the best passers in the game.  And what do you know, we happen to already have that guy. 


Semin sucks. The rest I'd be fine with

Correct. That's why we umm have sucked?


Then why aren't you discussing how anti-clutch Datsyuk, Zberg, Nyquist, Tatar, Jurco, ect. Are?

Seems more like a team issue, not a Franzen one. But it's more fun/easy to bash Franzen right?

3 of the last four years where we played 10 or less games he has

Goals. Assists
2 1
1 0
0 2

Then the year with 14 games he has
4 goals 2 assist.




You're right that's so damn clutch.


Since turning 30 in the playoffs is been nothing but downhill. BUT ITS OK GUYS HE WILL GET BETTER WITH AGE!


By your standard pretty much every wing sucks. No ones been clutch in the recent playoff runs.

Tank the season for mcdavid you say?


I'm actually really starting to get behind this tank idea. I'm not sure how well the tracks work on ice, but that thing would be a helluva big body in front of the net


#2546516 What happened to Calle Jarnkrok?

#2546481 What happened to Calle Jarnkrok?

Posted by number9 on 03 November 2014 - 08:34 PM

 

we needed Legwand. Babcock relegated him to the 4th line so he could control his point production, so when they lowballed him come July 1st, they could use only his red wing points as the excuse. David was smarter than that, even though his first choice was to end his career as a Red Wing. Nothing personal, just business.

 

 

Yes, of course. We got him so that we could use him to keep the streak alive... by giving him low minutes with bad linemates. Do you hear yourself sometimes?

 

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't we not offer him a contract at all this summer??

Well no matter what people think of enforcer but McGrattan is more than just an enforcer, he is a decent tough as nails fourth liner who can play a little hockey too so the ideal prototype of a fourth line guy.
 
There are only a handful of othe players willing to drop the gloves against Big Ern and you know what you get with him, an honest effort every shift, I would do this trade 10 out of 10 times


And by a little hockey you mean he basically can't play hockey

I'm playing both sides. That way when a winner arises I can pretend I was on that side the whole time.

*evil laugh*


ET, I wasn't able to get the sharks with laser beams, but I do have some very ill-tempered sea bass...?
