#2417645 The CapGeek Thread

I agree with everything you said, but I would like Bert as a first liner. He's one of our best shooters and has good hands. Don't you remember his 45 points in 2011 and his 38 points in 2012?

 

I love Bert don't get me wrong..but he isn't young and his back is a mess..he would be a good 2/3rd line guy but no way he should play on the top line.

I want to see more physical 3rd and 4th lines and more skilled 1st and 2nd lines. Plus Kenny needs to realize that we have a lot of young players who are NHL ready. They need some icetime in Detroit to improve. In five years, when Z, Pav and probably Kronner are gone, we need some new stars.

Maybe Kenny can find a good right handed defender to fill the capspace a little bit.

 

Wow..where did Ericsson, Smith and Quincey go? They can't jsut disappear lol.  With that D we would lose 70 games.  Bert on the 1st line ? Andersson..where is he? I'm all for posting lineups and stuff but lets at least follow the guide lines of what an actual NHL roster would consist of.

I still just point my finger at Holland for not doing more to build this team up. I think these players, frustrating at times or not, did amazing considering the pieces in play. But I've been saying for ages now that it's stupid to not go for it when you still have Pavs and Z, and it was even stupider not to go for it when you had Lidstrom still too. You're going to be a good, competitive team every night still with Dats and Z in the lineup, and they've proven that this year if they've proven anything. I'm not saying we're one guy away from a Cup, but if we had a little more offense and a tighter D, I think we win this series. I'm not talking the need for stars either, though it'd certainly be nice. But to continually lose players and do nothing to make up for some of the loss just stings all the more right now. Like I've said literally for years now, if you're not going to blow up the team and really start rebuilding, do what you can to go for it. Sure, there are no guarantees, but it's brutally obvious that this team needs top-6 help at this point.

I hate to say it, really, I do, but I'm just saying, how do you think this series goes if Holland bites the bullet and gives up the 1st rounder for Jagr? In light of what they accomplished with this lineup, you have to wonder. I thought it was the right call at the time, and I think I still do, but you have to wonder right now. People always say that making moves is a gamble, but people rarely consider that not making moves is just as much of a gamble.

 

He didn't over spend a dime at the deadline and we were within one goal of making it to the conference finals against a team that I think we would've beat. Sometimes the best trades are the ones you don't make.

Filppula - Goodbye

 

Frangelina - Goodbye (see ya in Vancouver)

 

Cleary - Goodbye

 

Bertuzzi - Goodbye

 

Samuelsson - Goodbye

 

This team is a dire need of TWO top 6 scorers....and someone to give Kronwall a blanket party to wake his ass up! Hello! You are the #1 guy here, PLAY LIKE IT!

 

 

on a side note, so glad I don't have to stop complaining about "The Choice"

 

I agree with all of those, Flip can stay if he wants to be the 3rd line center..we need to find a 2nd line center...I like Sammy and Bert but clearly Bert's back is a mess and at his age isn't going to get much better and Sammy just had a crap run of luck this year with injuries. Cleary is a warrior but just can't keep up for long periods of time..worked his ass of though.  Franzen could get traded, its a pretty reasonable contract ..he's never going to play until the end of it so someone is going to only have to take that hit for 2-3 years. Need a top 6 guy and a top 6/9 guy.  Cant wait to watch Gus play a full season next year.

Roller coaster of a season..tough way to go down..learned alot about our young guys..feel like we may just be a couple pieces away . Jimmy is top notch and love watching that guy.  Signing off for a while..too hard to listen to the GMRWings types around here who complain about everything.. Have a good summer to the real fans out there.

Maybe one of the worst calls I've seen in my life on that disallowed Hawks goal...if the Wings manage to win it in OT I'm not sure how I'll even feel about it

 

Really? Refs messing up calls is par for the course in this league.

We look really gassed..look like a team who worked so hard to win those 3 games and we have  little left in the tank..good push at the end of the period..it's going to take a really gutsy 3rd to tie this thing up and win it.  Jimmy has kept us in it..lets get 1.

I tried being positive here once, for a week or so, but got several complaints and wasn't good at it in general.  

 

If I was going to ignore you  Iwould've done it years ago.  The comedy of your negativity makes me laugh sometimes.

Just need to get back to smart play...make the easy play coming out of our own end and clear pucks. Bad clears cost us 2 goals the other night.

Credibility = 0   That is just embarassing for a guy on the national stage to completely eff that up.

they are loading up the top line with Tayes- Mullet head - Sharp, Cue captain Z , his linemates and Kronner and Big E to shut them down.

After all the bad mojo we had all year I feel like the hockey gods are on our side..we are playing our asses off and getting the breaks we need and deserve...lets dust these guys off on Saturday 




#2408895 Report: Roy Appointed Avalanche Coach

He's not another Gretzky. He's had a lot of success with the Quebec Ramparts and shown that he deserves the job regardless of his playing career.

 

Big difference between 16-18 year old kids and 30-40 year old men.
