#2628847 10/7 National Hockey League games GDT

Posted by rick zombo on Today, 08:53 AM

Some of us would kill to have this fool on the team, he is exactly what the Wings have been missing for way too long. A big, rugged, nasty powerforward that will score you 20 + goals each year.


Take Lucic, add about 75 IQ points, remove about 20 punds of fat, and give him a soul and you have Abdlekader: a big, rugged, power forward that can score 20 goals. No need for the "nasty" part.

Got 13 16 bucks on the Habs.

Just heard they sent Kassian to rehab. I thought he was already a hab

#2622940 Franzen's Gift to Nyquist

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 12 August 2015 - 02:01 AM

Am I the only one who took this as some dry wit from Franzen? I thought he was implying Nyquist did not like Babcock. Franzen always seemed to have a pretty dry, sarcastic sense of humor in his interviews.

Bernier - : "How many times do I need to bail out our s**** defense? Exactly" - Walks away. 

Reimer's confidence is under the gutter unfortunately. Toronto ruined him. 

Bernier: " Nelson Mandela would have never let his team play such s*** defense"

#2622306 Who is better Nyquist or Tatar?

Posted by number9 on 05 August 2015 - 11:05 AM

Realgud points everyone. I've been swayed and forced to change my vote again!


The major difference between Nyquist and Tatar is that Nyquist is a goose, and Tatar is a Mexican water bug.


Now the thing about geese is that some can lay golden eggs, like Gus did during the 13-14 season. However, to lay golden eggs, geese have to be loose. Hence the phrase "loosey goosey". Because geese are not always loose, a goose like Nyquist will be streakier from time to time.


Being a Mexican water bug, Tatar is obviously more lively and quick with the puck. But the main advantage of being a Mexican water bug is that it is a made-up insect that only exists inside the mind of Mickey Redmond. So basically the sky is the limit on Tatar's potential and what he will develop into. Don't ask me why Mickey's made-up bug is Mexican.


I know it's boring nerdy science stuff i got from a spread sheet, but the facts are there. Each has their strengths and weaknesses.

#2619470 EC on paper for 15/16.....

Posted by rick zombo on 07 July 2015 - 02:35 PM

I agree about Ottawa.


I also think the Habs rode a hot goalie ALL season. Price is going to have a mortal year and the Habs don't have the line-up to be any better than the 6-8th spot.


Pittsburgh will miss, Boston will miss.


Florida's not quite there yet. Neither are the Sabres.


Columbus will make it in.


Hopefully Detroit has home ice in the first round, but I'll settle for making it in.


Going to be tight

I think detroit finishes second to Tampa in the division, 3rd or 4th over all. Top four will be Tampa, Detroit, Washington and rangers. In no particular order.

Islanders, Montreal, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Florida, Ottawa will fight for the last four spots. Sabres and flyers won't be far behind.

Lol at people saying 3 or 3.5 million, no way he gets anything under 4.5. Back  to back near 30 goal seasons and back to back to back seasons of being one of the teams top scorers he's well worth 4.5+. We're lucky he's an RFA and not a UFA because there are teams out there that would offer 5+ easy. 


Everyone in this thread has come to accustomed to Kenny and his lowball "market value" offers, fact is good players get paid and Goose is a good player. 


Saad, age 22, 23G 29A 52 PTS - 6M 

O'Rielly, age 24, 17G 38A 55 PTS - 7.5M

Kadri, age 24, 18G 21A 39 PTS - 4.1M

Nyquist, age 25 27G 27A 54 PTS- ???


 O'Rielly and Saad being comparable to Gooses productivity and Kadri being slightly below Gooses productivity (Kadri's never scored more than 20) it's easy to say goose is a 4.5M+ player. 


If you had to go to Free Agency to replace Gooses productivity it's going to cost 5 Million plus for a near 30 goal 50+ points scorer.

Holland was lying.

#2618598 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Weren't we $17 million under the cap?  Who gives a s*** if we gave Richards $3 mill for one year?

#2618586 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

An offensive defenseman under 30 with a RH shot on a short term deal?  Even if he does end up being subpar on the back end, it's really hard to find fault with this deal.  When you consider what's out there (or what isn't out there) and the prices that those guys are demanding, kind of hard to find any negatives to it.

Why not go for Beleskey?

Why would we want another David Clarkson? One good year? No thanks
