#2102878 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by puckbags on 22 January 2011 - 12:54 PM

More I think of this, the more I think it was shrewed by everyone involved. The Islanders do nothing more than try to boost ticket sales.

However, Holland knows that this will make all the players in the league notice how bad we want to win a cup and how much players are willing to sacrifice to come here.

It makes a powerful agent happy because he was the only GM willing to go through this waiver embarrassment to get Nabs a job.

It makes Howard notice that there is a ton more pressure on him and lets us see if he will respond.

It highlights what has happened to St. Louis with Svatos and creates a bit of good will with some of the GM's, while making some rivals scramble to figure out what to do in response.

I think they knew that, for all the effort of negotiating, they were not going to get him but the worst case scenario would be that they DID get him.

A smart cliff note summary of 1000 posts...Thanks ! Everyone of these points is right on target.
The only thing hurt in Detroit by this situation is our pride.

Holland doesn't seem to mind, and I bet money the players and fans do a bit. Maybe this is motivational psychology 901. PhD for Kenny.

#2093648 Trade Time?

Posted by puckbags on 08 January 2011 - 05:28 PM

Where do people come up with this stuff? 2nd in the west, 2nd overall and we should just start trading guys? Little bit of indifferent play and some injuries but making needless trades doesn't solve anything.

#2092750 1/7 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Flames 4 (SO)

Datsyuk and Cleary could really help us in our own end right now. They are both so calm and composed. We can blame the d pairings or some shotty goaltending but our forwards are running all over the place in our own end !

#2086869 12/29 GDT: Red Wings 7 at Stars 3

In other (good) news, the streak is over, despite help from the refs and quadruple shifting Crosby.

Why wouldn't they quadruple shift him? He is the best player in the world by far right now. The hatred for Crosby makes me laugh. He might whine but he is passionate as hell about being the best. He works at the things he needs to get better at and i'm pretty sure his resume speaks for itself. He's 23 yrs old and won everything. I'm not a huge fan of him because he is a Penguin but saying the refs help them out? cmon stop being such a baby.

I love people on this site who predict that the Wings will lose every game (ie. Mindfly) and then when they do occasionally lose they act like they are the mesiah of hockey predictions !

#2065155 Robidas demolishes Heatley

Posted by puckbags on 19 November 2010 - 02:57 AM

It doesn't really affect the outcome of the hit, but Robidas should have been called for elbowing. He led into the hit with an outstretched arm.

Of your 11,111 posts this one has to be the dumbest..wtf are you talking about?

#2053290 Goaltender interference? Nah.

Posted by puckbags on 27 October 2010 - 10:11 AM

Maybe Homer just needs to be more obvious with his interference. Orr was so blatant with it that I don't think the ref knew what to do. :lol:

#2032281 Line excitement

Posted by puckbags on 10 September 2010 - 11:08 AM

If we can stay healthy and run 4 lines for most of the reg season we are going to be scary come playoff time. The ability to not have to over play our top 6 will be huge come playoffs. I look at all 4 of those lines and have no problem putting any of them out at anytime in any situation.

It's fun to joke around ---- but I prefer to read some serious responses.

Your name is a joke right? Wings over Pens

The bad news is we lost but the good news is (a) I just farted and (b) I just saved a whole bunch of money by switching my car insurance to Geico !

#1934520 Any Word on Hossa's injury?

Posted by puckbags on 07 April 2010 - 10:36 PM

I heard they may have to remove his heart, he doesn't use it come playoff time anyways !

#1912895 Samuelsson highest scoring swede as of today

Posted by puckbags on 10 March 2010 - 12:52 AM


He does not play with the Sedin's consistantly, tonight was the first night they had been toghether as a whole line.

I was one of the few players who always stuck up for Sammy, and am glad to see him doing good.

People are also incorrect with their statements of him never giving us this type of production, as before tonight's game he would be on pace for 53 points, 1 more than he would have had prorated for 82 games his first season with us. Given his increase in TOI, it isn't anything remarkable or unexpected... at least to me.

Thank you, I tried to explain this about 5 posts before this. He has had some very short spot duty with the Sedins this year but mostly has played with Kesler and Raymond who have also had good years coincidentally. Good shot, Big body, Feisty when he has to be...all things I think we would take back in a heartbeat including his 20+ goals !
