#2385449 Six outdoor games in 2014 for NHL

I haven't been this mad at the NHL in like...a week.

#2385430 Bert thinks he'll be back this season

Posted by Ally on 16 April 2013 - 07:03 PM

What he brings to the team is slowing the development of Nyquist. Can't have that anymore.

I respectfully disagree.
Bert is effective with Pav and more importantly Pav likes playing with him.
He's helpful in the shootout and with us fighting for every point we can get, a shootout point can make or break the end of this season for us.
Last, we only have one player that anybody is even remotely intimidated by (Tootoo) and with Bert we'd have another. I like having a big, tough, guy on a line with Dats.
Bert brings a lot to this team. If you don't see that we're lacking in his absence, then we haven't been watching the same top 6 this season.

Go Oilers.
And I want the Blues to lose too but I can't cheer for Vancouver. I tried and I can't.

#2385257 Playoff race vs. race for #1 pick.

High picks don't guarantee superstars. I mean, I even heard about one team that drafted a magician with their 171st pick! I can't remember what team it was.

^oh boy.

Don't care about first pick because anyone could get it.
DO care about a playoff streak because not every team can have that.

I have always been a Bert fan and loved him with Pav. If we get anything from him being out for so long, I hope it's that more people will see what he brings to the team because a lot of people on here were bashing him hard last season.

Its not a downer to have realistic expectations and not put the cart before the horse.  I'm hoping that the average fan reading isn't expecting to see Vlad walking around normally.  It's incredible that he's able to take some independent steps.  Hard work and determination is only part of the equation.  It also takes a team of high quality medical professionals and an unlimited amount of funds to make it happen. 

I completely understand realistic expectations but this thread is just to celebrate his progress. I don't think anyone was arguing that it didn't take an incredible amount of hard work from a lot of people to get him t this point. Maybe this just isn't the place to shut down people's high hopes for Vladdy with opinions on how limited he will be.
Let's just admire how far he's come.

I haven't cried like that since Titanic.
But seriously. This is so awesome. Actually brings me to tears thinking about what a fighter he is.

#2383724 nhl.com calls Kenny the best GM

Posted by Ally on 12 April 2013 - 02:49 PM

I think the timing of this article has to do with the fact that even though the Wings are struggling, we've lost more in the past 2 years than most teams could overcome and while we haven't exactly thrived, many people were calling for us to fall a lot farther than we have. Sure, we are bad by Wings standards but there's a lot of other teams that would kill for a rebuild that looks like ours.

#2382733 Damien Brunner - Value? Comparables?

Posted by Ally on 10 April 2013 - 11:55 AM

Every season people make at least one post about how much the Wings have to travel. Now we take that terrible travel schedule and we make all the games closer together. And then we say he should be able to magically get used to traveling/playing every single day on top of adjusting to a new league with new ice. Dont't forget that all of this should take him less than half a season.
Seriously, give the man a break.

#2382560 Damien Brunner - Value? Comparables?

Posted by Ally on 09 April 2013 - 06:02 PM

I'm with the others saying you can't judge Brunner by this season. Next year is going to be crazy different.
Also don't care if he is skinny, Gretzky was skinny. Haha no comparison between the two, Brunner can put on weight though so I'm not worried about that.

I love this. If their game turns around they have him to thank for having the guts to publicly shame his team for their lack of effort.
The last paragraph regarding Chicago and Calgary...read up Red Wings.

#2382507 Helm might be out for season

Proving once again that even when I'm expecting bad news, it doesn't suck any less when it becomes official.

#2382262 Going forward with what we have

Posted by Ally on 08 April 2013 - 02:36 PM

I feel like there are 15 of these threads with a point by point explanation of what people want with each individual player. Can't they somehow be combined in a "what I would do if I were Holland" thread?
As far as this particular one goes, I don't hate every idea but any plan that suggests trading Datsyuk is thumbs down for me. Yes, I WOULD rather lose him for nothing. I want that man to be a career Wing.

#2379777 Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

Posted by Ally on 03 April 2013 - 04:48 PM

I'm okay with this. There was nobody I was dying to have.
People really need to remember that the "price" that Holland refers to isn't just about money. It's also about what players we'd have to give up. I'd rather him hoard prospects now than give them away for players that are only marginal improvements to our roster.
Holland makes no moves and everyone loses it but if he gave the teams what they asked from us I promise half of this board would be flipping out over what we gave up.
