#2441750 10/4 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Hurricanes 2 (OT)

Yet again we need more offense.

I was extremely encouraged by last nights peformance. Thought we were solid in most facets.
To get a win while on a parade to the penalty box is a good accomplishment.  Normally the penalties would concern me, but most of them were just laughable
Cleary and Bert both showed well.  Still not impressed by Samuelson even with the goal... would much rather see Tatar and to be honest Nyquist belongs in the nhl
In a dream world we could roll

Now that lineup would be scary good. Maybe best forward group in the league

For a first game this was okay. Could have been much worse and showed a ton of promise. The thought of this team + Helm, Nyquist and Tatar... will be something when we finally see it. [/quote]

I agree that adding helm, nyquist, and Tatar will make this team scary!

#2440175 So....did Cleary just take Tatar's spot?

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 01 October 2013 - 12:43 PM

Sucks to be Tatar and Nyquist right now.  You do absolutely everything to earn a spot on the roster, there are 3 forwards injured and you still can't get ahead of players you are clearly better than. 
So right now we need either even more forwards to get injured - and be careful what you wish for, it could just as easily be [un-named star player] as Sammy.
We need our bottom 6 to suck so bad that Babs is forced to bring Gus/Tats in.  Which means we're probably losing games, which is never good.

Yep it's pathetic. These washed up jokes are playing in front of guys like Nyq and Tatar. So much for having the best 3rd line in hockey, we may have the worst

SportsK.com has them for $165, pre tax and shipping.

I've ordered from them at least 7 or 8 times, and they are top notch. The exact same product at a much better price, and with world class customer service.



Thanks man.  Means a lot.  Now just wish I could change my username lol

#2429160 Player predictions

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 09 July 2013 - 10:29 PM

I know it's early, but I'm a liittle bored an super excited for next season. So I was wondering what everyone's predictions are on the production of our players for next season.

Pavel datsyuk: 23 goals, 52 assists
Henrik zetterberg: 32 goals, 40 assists
Justin abdelkader: 17 goals, 22 assists
Stephen Weiss: 21 goals, 43 assists
Daniel alfredsson: 23 goals, 25 assists
Johan franzen: 26 goals, 28 assists
Darren helm: 14 goals, 22 assists
Gustav nyquist: 18 goals, 25 assists
Tomas Tatar: 16 goals, 23 assists
Jokim Anderson: 11 goals, 15 assists
Patrick eaves: 12 goals, 12 assists
Drew miller: 13 goals, 13 assists


Nik kronwall: 13 goals, 35 assists
Johnathan Ericsson: 6 goals, 10 assists
Brendan smith: 9 goals, 22 assists
Kyle Quincey: 4 goals, 11 assists
Jacob kindl: 11 goals, 27 assists
Danny dekeyser: 3 goals, 12 assists

This is what I consider are top 12 forwards and top 6 defenseman.

My numbers may be a little high I know but this is wishful thinking as I'm so excited for next season. As well this is barring no injuries which obviously isn't gonna happen

I hope goose tears it up and makes the Swedish team!

#2428610 Abdelkader Hypothetical

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 07 July 2013 - 06:33 PM

Sounds like Holmstrom to me aside from deflecting shots.  The reason those lunchpail carrying knuckleheads are on those lines is to retrieve the puck and park at the top of the crease.  I'd much rather have the likes of Nyquist, Tatar, Jurco, and so on on the top line with Z and Dats, but the nice thing is that Dats and Z are so lethal together that it makes it so you can have a grinder to help them out and have 3 scoring lines on the team.  

This is my thinking 100 percent. Abby isn't good enough to just play top 6 and create and produce and belong. But he's the guy that will do the dirty work, retrieve pucks, and unlike homer can move his feet and get in on the forecheck. Abby is a solid player

#2428433 So.. what are our expectations for this roster?

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 07 July 2013 - 11:57 AM

To those people saying Cup or bust, why do you feel that way?  I was saying stuff like that for about 15 years, but not anymore.  Roster isn't that good and IMO it's an unrealistic expectation with this group.  
We replaced Filppula with Weiss and added Alfredsson.  Is that really all last year's team was missing?  

Your also forgetting a healthy helm, a full season with nyquist, Tatar, Anderson, dekeyser. On top of that experience. Playoff experience for a lot of guys. This team is much better than last season

Sammy should be on LTIR with hurt feelings for almost being bought out. 

Ya he's probably screwing us out of brunner, if not then maybe a guy like morrow. Pathetic. GTFO Sammy nobody wants you here

Give clearys money to brunner. Grrrrrr so frustrating

#2427429 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 05 July 2013 - 03:56 PM

Ansar Khan ‏@AnsarKhanMLive 17m
Holland said he's still trying to sign Cleary but Brunner is moving on.

Should be the other way around dammit!!

#2427398 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 05 July 2013 - 03:44 PM

Shame, Brunner was a great guy and a solid hockey player. He'll do well wherever he goes but we can't lose Tatar.

We should be able to have them both!

Z-d- brunner
Mule- Weiss-alfy
Nyq- helm- Tatar
Abby- Andy- miller/ Bert/eaves/ tootoo

I want this so badly
