#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.

I like the idea of Nash, but it's all about the cost. If we're giving up Franzen, perhaps, but not Flip.

#2312540 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by jthiel86 on 02 July 2012 - 02:02 AM

I hate him so much, I don't want to win a cup to keep him from winning. I was hoping he wouldn't play another game in the NHL and instead A THREE YEAR CONTRACT HERE?!?!?!

You sir are not a very good fan of the Wings. Tootoo is a Wing now, people need to get over it. Just think of what he may have done to Weber last year had he been on the Wings? I'm sure he would have done a better job than Bert did, even though Bert gave a decent effort.

#2284037 Nyquist in game 2

Posted by jthiel86 on 13 April 2012 - 12:46 AM

He didn't play Emmerton much because Helm's injury made Emmerton pointless. Emmerton was in the lineup so that Abdelkader could play on the wing. When Abdelkader was moved up to center the 3rd line, Emmerton became irrelevant.

Sheahan isn't ready for the NHL yet. Andersson would fit better.

Not trying to be argumentative, but why would they bring Sheahan in on the last game of the season if they figured he wasn't ready? That's not very "Detroit-esque" if you know what I mean. I get giving him a taste, but like another poster said, he brings size and the willingness to play the grinder hockey that Emmerton may not be capable of doing.

I do agree Andersson may be a better fit also.

#2275551 3/30 GDT : Predators 4 at Red Wings 1

Need to make a statement win here tonight!

I really hope they come out angry as all get out for how they played on Wednesday.

#2275548 Zetterberg 10th on All-time Swedish Goal Scorers List

Posted by jthiel86 on 30 March 2012 - 12:25 AM

Glad he's on our side! And to think people were screaming bloody murder about him the first half of the year...

#2275547 Nyquist needs to stay here

Posted by jthiel86 on 30 March 2012 - 12:23 AM

I totally think this should be the lines against Nashville except I would put Miller and the 3rd line instead of Cleary. There was a game that Franzen, Miller, and Abby played together and they looked good and Mule scored a goal.

Agreed. Miller is better than Cleary right now, and really he has been all season. Miller has earned 3rd line minutes. Easily.

#2273990 Brendan Smith sent back to Grand Rapids

Posted by jthiel86 on 25 March 2012 - 11:38 PM

I'm not thrilled with sending him down. However I believe what was said above is true. We really don't want to lose E or Kindl to waivers. Plus letting Smith get first pair minutes in GR isn't terrible to keep him going until playoff time when he may be needed. I do not agree with Smith being in GR next year on any level however.

I hope Jimmy gets 22 as well! I'll be at the game Friday, my first one at the Joe! :siren: :yowza: :siren:

#2221468 This team screams for a trade

Posted by jthiel86 on 02 November 2011 - 01:43 AM

hello all. new to these forums and this one seems to be fairly hot right now so a good place to jump in. i have to admit i've been at times eager to see some things happen to shake things up in the past 5 games. however, when i look at something like shots on goal, it appears the boys are just not on target right now and things aren't bouncing their way. their defense hasn't been too bad outside of the caps and sharks game. jimmy has been fantastic.

i liked moving up nyquist for hudler tonight. even though he didn't do much, it was his first real pro game and he is going to have to adjust to the speed of the game. but we all saw him in preseason and he looks like he could be a very good addition to the roster. i'm not too fond of cleary's play right now, however i'm willing to wait a bit to see if he'll pick it up and play more like he did last year. i think what this team is missing right now is a dany heatley type player who is just a flat out scoring machine. maybe i'm wrong, but we haven't had a great scorer since Z had his conn smythe year. hopefully someone will wake up soon.
