#2643293 Adam Oates being brought in to help PP

Posted by rooter2309 on 18 December 2015 - 03:39 PM

Oates is working as a "skills" coach, with individual players such as Stamkos, Parise and Purcell to name a few.  After leaving NJ, he opened his own business and has individual clients where he watches their  game shifts and advises them on individual aspects of their game. In the off season he meets with them and works on the ice with many of his clients. He was hired by the wings for a three day period to, like Blash said, Pick his brain. I believe this is the first time he has worked with any one team in any capacity since leaving NJ. Should be a good opportunity for Blash and the coaching staff to learn some things.

Kenny figures this will be Yzermans problem in a few years.

#2636461 Athanasiou recalled by Red Wings

Cool article I found from 2012 on AA


Says he is a leafs fan, but more a fan of players. Mention Datsyuk and Bure.


Also touches on his rrelationship with Hunter. Didn't sound negative, but then again I would not expect it to.


Interesting note, he was projected a top 10 pick then his stats fell off and like PVD above me stated he was traded and that's where he really took off.

Pretty sick of seeing Jurco scratched in favor of Andersson. I can't imagine what he is doing so wrong to not pop into the lineup.

Seems like every game the team is getting more comfortable with Blashill's systems. You can really see the difference where early on there seemed to be a little hesitance in adapting from what was the norm for so  long. Now we just need the system and the players to generate more shots and greasy goals. If they can do that, the sky is the limit here.


4-2 Wings

Tats,Z,Green and Larkin


Ovi X2 (sort of what to see him break the record)

I know I always am anxious to see practice related material and I'm sure some good discussion could always come from lines and injury updates given to us by the diggers.


Or anything else anyone sees about practice. I enjoy when Roose posts his Periscope link to watch some practice.


For example, a cool picture from Khan of Larkin getting some extra work with Datsyuk after practice.



Sorry, unsure how to just posts the pic right here, but you guys and gals all get the idea.

If i knew what an adverb was, I'd play Scored a couple tickets from work, row 7. Can't wait to be out of here and in the Joe with a Molson.


Wings 4- Larkin X4

Canes- 1 Faulk (deflects off Larkin)

#2630920 Teams you didn't expect to still be winless

Posted by rooter2309 on 15 October 2015 - 08:44 AM

I'm surprised by the ducks. Flat against Vancouver in the home opener and then laid an egg against Phoenix last night.


What teams have impressed so far?


I think the two teams I mentioned above have had obviously terrific starts and I would toss in San Jose, too. Not to mention our Wings :cheesy:

Happy holiday, everyone. I will be drinking about 4 Joe Louis Molson's tonight. Couldn't be more excited to pay $9.75 a beer!

#2622214 This off season...

#2621697 Mitch Callahan

Posted by rooter2309 on 28 July 2015 - 11:06 AM

Pretty desperate for hockey when I find myself refreshing a thread about Mitch Callahan. That being said, Andersson never materialized into what I thought he might be after the 13 playoffs. Cut ties and give the next wave a shot.

#2615881 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Posted by rooter2309 on 24 June 2015 - 08:56 AM

HAHAH the players were better? You guys crack me up. Hockey has never seen the speed and skill it has now. All that clutching and grabbing was dumb and honestly line brawls were a sideshow to the actual game. And the ratings are better because the advertising is reaching so many different mediums and the game is being watched everywhere and anywhere.
