Stuart and Kindl (and most likely a pick) to Anaheim, Selanne to Detroit. I think Stuart has decided to go back.

#2254270 Will there be an impact trade by the wings?

We're trading John Keating and a 3rd round pick for the Red Wings truck.

Looked it up. Kovy was born in Tver, Russia, which is in the Europe side. My mistake, soft Euro it is.

Soft Euro jokes anyone?

Russia is not Europe. Technically, Schenn got whooped by an Asian.

A gritty player who's beaten the snot out of Lucic, I approve.

#2250239 All-Star Draft last pick consolation prize?

Posted by jfranzen on 27 January 2012 - 11:16 AM

Nobody likes to be picked last. I get that. It's embarrassing and humiliating and basically tells the world that you are unwanted and unskilled. Apparently these mighty hockey players' feelings are hurt when they are picked last in the ALL-STARS DRAFT.

Seriously, lets think about this for a second. You were selected from the worlds most elite league of hockey to represent the best of the best in a once-a-year contest that features world-class players doing things that the fans expect to see maybe once or twice a season. How, exactly, is getting picked last such a bad thing?

And why are we giving these guys a consolation prize? Oh yeah, "Sorry you got picked last out of a group of the best players in the NHL this year while the captains picked their teammates, here's a car." As if they couldn't afford a crappy Honda in the first place.

In summation, if you're really that upset because you were the last pick out of this years high-scoring group of players and can't be happy that you at least were picked for the All-Star game, then you're just an ungrateful baby. Suck it up and enjoy the fun event that the league has put together for you or GTFO.


#2249341 What happened to Zetterberg's scoring touch?

Posted by jfranzen on 25 January 2012 - 03:19 PM

"Filppula, you need to get more pucks on net"

"Zetterberg, why aren't you scoring any goals?"


#2249320 Thomas on the way out for Boston Bruins?

Come home to Michigan and give Howie some much needed rest that the Conklin Clown can't give... Oh and don't forget to BRING OUR CUP with you!

Don't forget that Michigan is a left wing state. :P

#2249316 Thomas on the way out for Boston Bruins?

Posted by jfranzen on 25 January 2012 - 02:45 PM

Are you crazy? Look at his numbers, they guy is dynamite.

Rask has played 13 Playoff games with a SV% of .912 and a 2.61 GAA

Looking at recent Cup winners' playoff stats:

2008 Osgood SV% of .930 and a 1.55 GAA over 1100 minutes played
2009 Fleury SV% of .908 and a .261 GAA over 1400 minutes played
2010 Niemi SV% of .910 and a 2.63 GAA over 1300 minutes played
2011 Thomas SV% of .935 and a 1.98 GAA over 1400 minutes played

Looking at Rask's playoff stats: SV% of .912 and a 2.61 GAA just over 800 minutes played

I'm not saying he isn't good, but he's not time tested like the previous examples. He'll be ok, but I think they'd get bumped out in the second round.<br><br>Edited for stat correctness.<br>

I couldn't find the article at the Boston Globe. But they summed it up okay in the article I've linked. This may be an interesting time for the Bruins, I don't think Rask has what it takes to take them far into the playoffs. Something interesting to keep an eye on.

#2245210 The ONE thing I can't stand about Wings games on FSD.....

Posted by jfranzen on 13 January 2012 - 10:45 AM

And then one day, you find yourself living a thousand miles away from where you grew up and wishing that there was a Belle Tire down here because none of the local tire stores come close to the same price/service standards. I find myself digging most of the FSD commercials out of childhood nostalgia and wishing they'd bring back the Kowalski Kowality Moment.

This. I grew up around Detroit and moved after I graduated high school. The local adverts make it feel a little more like home, with the exception that I'll never get to go see the Wings' public outings. :(

#2245208 Next Captain?
