#2607018 What's our draft position this year? And best defensemen available

Posted by number9 on 10 May 2015 - 05:58 PM

Five greatest center prospects ever; dylark, dylark, dylark, and dylark.
"That's four."
And dylark.


He spits hot fire

I think the bottom 6 should be the last of our worries. And further more I think forwards should be the last of our worries. We have a number of top 6 forwards and bottom 6 forwards entering the league the next few years. DEFENSE is still the glaring issue with this team.

It takes 4 years to adress a  need?

 

How many top pairing D-men and large goal scorers have you seen move teams in the last 4 years? Out of the 1 or 2, we had a 1 in 30 chance of securing them.Frankly, It's not as outrageous that we didn't fill that need as you make it sound.




#2606830 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

I agree 100%. My post was directed at us using Blashill 100%, and if Holland goes and signs anyone else my god...


 

Not yet. Holland hasn't stopped pumping the tires. The Locker Room interview, he said we were leaking oil.

 

Is our team af****** car?

 

It is the motor city... and we do have a tire for a logo lol




#2606604 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

I blame Holland for failed analogies


I blame Holland for Baltimore


#2606538 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by number9 on 07 May 2015 - 11:12 AM

So? Every owner tells his GM to win. No surprise here. But is being in the top 53% good enough? I wonder if back 40 years ago Mr I decided I just want to have the 20th biggest pizza chain in the world. or did he decide to be the biggest? Hmmm i wonder which it was...... On top of that, do you honestly believe there is anything Holland could do right now to get fired? Nope. he is a lifer. If he decided to rebuild, he would still be here as the GM.


With all do respect, Mr. I doesn't do much anymore due to his age and health. The GM's are also both club presidents, they are fully in charge of each team.

 

Mr. I didn't tank his pizza chain until Gordon Ramsay came to fix it for him. He kept chugging at 53% until it was one of the biggest. Just like Holland's doing.

Drew Stafford.  I can't say it enough. 


What so we can have two disappointing Staffords in Detroit?


#2606361 Jim Devellano on Mantha's play: "Very disappointing"

Posted by number9 on 06 May 2015 - 11:26 AM

Mantha came into this year with the expectation that he could possibly step right into the NHL and perform. He was also protected by management in trades as an untouchable.

 

Yet he didn't make the NHL, and was average at best in the minors, often appearing as if he was just coasting.

 

Sure hes at the same point as Nyquist and Tatar in his career, but the later two exceeded the expectations the team had for them, not the other way around.

 

I think the public criticism is well warranted. This isn't a boom or bust prospect that is faltering. It's a blue chip vastly underperforming. I hope it lights a fire under his butt for this summer and next year.

Hindsight is always 20/20.
 
I'm not going to "blame" Holland for making a UFA signing that at the time seemed like a a great signing that 90% of us would have made.
Was it a bad signing....of course it was in retrospect.


NO, BLAME HOLLAND NOW!

Apparently you don't.
 
Most people in this thread aren't mad and aren't arguing that Devellano's comments are inaccurate.


Maybe you should reread the thread. The majority of people have expressed displeasure about Devellano being honest.

All he did was say something everyone already knows.


#2606266 Players who might be available due to teams cap issues

Posted by number9 on 05 May 2015 - 10:36 PM

Semin also had a reputation as being lazy with the Caps, and he's been great since leaving. Not saying that Lucic can follow the same path. I'm not even say that I want him on the Wings. I'm just saying.

 

Nope, he regressed to his old ways again, big time.




#2606158 Kronwall in the Playoffs

Posted by number9 on 05 May 2015 - 05:38 PM

 

Three seasons is enough of a sample size.  I doubt he's going to be any younger next season.  He may have been a better #1 a few years before Lidstrom retired.  Maybe not.  But at this point, what exactly is Kronwall's upside?  

 

 

That's your opinion and you're entitled to it.  I just wish Kronwall's playoff performances backed up your statement.  

 

In Shea Webers last 24 playoff games (3 seasons) he has 9 pts. Not #1 D-man??

I didn't know Holland was Polish.  

 

Fire him!

BOOM

Ahhh... living the dream

Phaneuf is gonna put Glendening in a head-lock, and force feed him Tim Hortons.

 

Bank on it!

 

Sir, that's merely a Leafs wet-dream... but that's all it is, a dream

 

Dion will be eating Mcdoubles out of Glendenings hands by July
