Don't know how legit this is....



#2530725 Mike Green to Wings?

Posted by jthiel86 on 09 July 2014 - 01:09 AM

Green isn't worth any of those four with his injury history in recent years. I'll be curious what offers are rumored in the couple months.

#2530534 MDZ close to signing with wings?

Posted by jthiel86 on 08 July 2014 - 12:20 AM

If MDZ's ceiling is as high as Smith's I wouldn't be opposed. Pair him with DK and put Q on the 3rd with E. Q and E would be a nasty 3rd pair.

#2514518 Do you want Jonas Gustavsson re-signed?

Posted by jthiel86 on 24 April 2014 - 01:06 AM

I don't feel he's reliable enough with his health. Skill-wise I have no complaints of his play this year, but Mrazek has been fantastic in both skill and health all season. I wouldn't complain if we brought him back cheap like you say, because we will still have Mrazek waiting in the wings to call up when he strains his groin again...

#2483305 Upgrade The Defense Rumours

Posted by jthiel86 on 11 February 2014 - 02:22 AM

I hate the idea of giving up Jurco for any of those guys at this point.  Maybe Ehrhoff...  I'm not good with giving up Nyquist of Tatar either...

#2481373 If Datsyuk returns Thursday, who's up next to sit?

Posted by jthiel86 on 05 February 2014 - 03:21 AM

I'm not sure you can have Eaves sit at this point.  He's playing really, really well.

I like your outlook.  The future is bright in Hockey Town.

#2403795 Which team had/has a stronger forecheck Anaheim or Chicago?

Posted by jthiel86 on 13 May 2013 - 04:19 AM

I will admit I wanted a shot at getting Perry on our team this offseason, and was somewhat disappointed he resigned in Anaheim.  However, after watching this series, I've come to realize he could never be a Wing.  His attitude makes me sick.

#2400821 WCQF Game 6 GDT : Ducks 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT) - (Series Tied 3-3)

Posted by jthiel86 on 10 May 2013 - 01:30 AM

Lol neither score goals....

Truth, but DK would've been in instead of Lash, which may have changed things a bit.  Helm, at this point I have no clue if he would make a difference.  Our third line has been the most consistent line we've had.  Imagine though, if you would, a line of Nyquist-Helm-Brunner.  Holy speed.

#2395091 Danny DeKeyser suffers broken thumb, out for playoffs

Posted by jthiel86 on 03 May 2013 - 12:49 AM

I am not sure about DeKeyser's value being overstated by posters here.  Babcock himself said the Wing's most likely wouldn't be in the playoffs without his addition to the roster.


edit: Sorry 6 posts popped up while I was typing this.

#2386308 Top 5 defenseman

Posted by jthiel86 on 18 April 2013 - 01:43 AM

I really hope Smith starts getting in form soon.  He's been tossed around a lot this season with different pairings, and I think it's been bad for his development.  I forget who has it in their signature, but it says that DeKeyser and Smith will be paired up next season.  I hope they are correct because I think that would be a good pair.

#2374240 I hate to admit this but....

Posted by jthiel86 on 26 March 2013 - 12:43 AM

If Edmonton gets Dekeyser I'm gonna be ticked.

#2367897 Why shootouts may be a bad thing

Posted by jthiel86 on 12 March 2013 - 12:58 AM

Kane's move is so jacked up.  I can't stand watching them in shootouts because of his bs.

Trolls, it's stop feeding the trolls. :lol:

#2359271 Babcock

Posted by jthiel86 on 22 February 2013 - 02:54 AM

I can't blame Babs at all right now. Limited number of "healthy" players to work with. However it's all about winning in professional sports no excuses in the NHL either.


It's always easy to blame the coach but in reality it always comes down to the players.


Opinion of course.

I won't agree it always comes down to JUST the players.  The players are on the ice, they have to perform.  The way that the lines have been thrown together and the changes come down to Babcock.  Tater should not be on the 3rd line still, just as Abdelkader should not be on the 2nd line with Datsyuk.  Datsyuk has enough of a task trying to drag Cleary along all the time.
