#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?

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.

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....

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.

Dont' let it upset you.  Not worth it. :cheesy:

#2324986 Bouwmeester opinions? Potential trades? *merged*

Posted by jthiel86 on 13 August 2012 - 01:41 AM

After the trade proposal you just threw out there I think you should be forever banned from calling someone stupid.

Bouwmeester for Emmerton and the chance to sniff Holland's taint would be an overpayment.

Are we that desperate for defence that we'd completely destroy our offence for a slightly better skating Quincey who would instantly be the highest paid player on the team?

I laughed hard at this. Also, If we could get JBo for a sniff of Holland's taint I'd take it....as long as Huds is the one sniffing.

#2322923 Wings & Yandle twitter-rumors? Believable?

Posted by jthiel86 on 30 July 2012 - 04:25 AM

Even if he's not necessarily "a sure source", it is a rumor thread and it is fun to speculate no?

That being said...

Not sure I like losing Flip for Yandle. I think, THINK, I'd rather lose Franzen and roll the dice with Brunner/Nyquist making up for his scoring. At least we know we'll get major hustle from Nyquist.
