#2502644 Avery vs. Brodeur

Posted by Son of a Wing on 28 March 2014 - 04:00 PM

So Brodeur can make fun of Avery's personal life but Avery can't attack him back?

 

The whole thing is childish and Brodeur should know better...he had it coming this time...

If I was 23 years old and had that kind of money I'd be in prison.

My GF had neighbors like that.  Fortunately her apartment complex didn't put up with it very long.  3rd time they had the police there for a noise complaint, the kids were gone.

 

I understand having fun, but the kid needs to grow up a bit or get a nice house in the suburbs.

#2494952 Cap increase may be lower than projected

Posted by ogreslayer on 13 March 2014 - 09:06 AM

So the expected cap increase may be lower next season, not the cap itself.  Kinda misleading thread title, isn't it?

#2491792 Red Wings have Recalled Pulkkinen from Grand Rapids

Posted by Huss on 06 March 2014 - 05:05 PM

Not to delve into hyperbole, but Wings fan should be more excited this wasn't the prospect traded yesterday.  Besides Mantha, he's the only guy who projects as an above-average goal scorer we have in the farm system at the moment.  Unlike Järnkrok, he's just adjusted beautifully to the North American style of play.  Hes been one of the Griffins best guys all year, and he loves to shoot.  Reading scouting reports about his shot is fun - you should all try it some time.  Names like "Kurri" and "Hull" are mentioned more than once.

 

I hope he plays soon.  I'm a big, big fan of his.  Go get em, kid.

#2494103 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by Son of a Wing on 10 March 2014 - 04:38 PM

Haven't said much in this thread but I will say this...

 

We are fickle fans.  We demand Holland make more trades for impact players but then crucify him if we have to give up anything of value.

 

The trade was never going to be Eaves a 3rd and Ferraro/marginal prospect.  Nobody wants that. There's next to no value in that trade.

 

We can all debate future and potential but none of that is certain so it's all conjecture for now.

 

Legwand would be a core piece and top 6 guy on any team in this league.  He is that good whether people want to admit that or not.  

 

No he's not a flashy/sexy player like Vanek, but he also isn't a known, pure rental and probably(hopefully) has a future here

 

I also have faith they wouldn't have made this deal if they weren't confident he will re-sign here. 

 

No that does not equate to him being a shoe-in to come here in the off-season regardless of the trade or not.

 

It means a lot to a player when a team pursues and "wants" you and is willing to give up assets to get you.  It sends a message.  Anyone can throw money come UFA time.

 

Combine that with our culture, great group of very well-liked and respected leadership group, young future players and the fact that his he's from Michigan and you've got a great appeal and likeliness to re-sign.

 

Starting next season (possibly this post-season if we can get healthy) we are going to have a very talented and deep group of forwards and I personally cannot wait to see what they are capable of.

Canada and Sweden demonstrate true sportsmanship

 

TORONTO – After Team Canada defeated Sweden 3-0 to win gold in men’s hockey at the Winter Olympics Sunday, you’d think there would be some hard feelings and nasty words being flung around. Maybe an “In your face!” or “Take that Sweden!” Especially on social media sites like Twitter.

 

Turns out both countries have gracious fans who, instead of trash-talking each other, showed true sportsmanship as the hashtag #hardtotrashtalkCanada trended in Sweden, while #hardtotrashtalkSweden trended in Canada.

No offense to Babcock, but this team had Ken Hitchcock's fingerprints all over it.


I'm glad this thread was unlocked so I'd have a chance to say that this is one of the dumbest things I have heard from a LGWer in a while, and that's saying something.

The two coaches have very similar styles.

Team Canada's play was some of the best and most dominant hockey I've ever witnessed. Congratulations to Gudlevskis, Quick and Lundquist for keeping their teams in these games; some of the best goaltending I've ever seen. Shoutout to Finland and Latvia for the great team efforts.

Sweden was missing too many high-end players to hang with Canada. Needed at least Backstrom, but really when we lost Zetterberg I felt we lost the chance to win Gold.

Good tournament by Canada, that defense is really impressive.
