#2551940 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on Yesterday, 08:50 PM

What we need to do it bring a guy like Andy Miele up from the AHL. The guy is a pure gamer. 11 points in 12 games and a proven track record of the last couple of years in Arizona's organization

Andy miele is that you?
Oh and.
Damn you Mark BernWagner!

#2551313 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Posted by under_par_00 on 23 November 2014 - 09:30 AM

Guys, this is an important bit of information that I think has been missed.


Nestrasil = "not scared" in Czech language.


This guy is the real deal.






In all seriousness, it sucks to lose a kid that has size and some offensive ability, hard worker, etc but it's not the end of the world.  This is a result of Kenny always trading 1 draft pick into 2 picks and our excellent development systems training these kids to be good hockey players.  Our farm system is full with no room on the NHL team.  We've lost Nestrasil and Jarnkrok and it still seems the farm is full.  As a whole, I think this could be managed a bit better by Kenny and Co to avoid losing talent for (almost) nothing.

Its just the sting of losing him for nothing because we have Cleary.  If the Wings had signed Iginla, Heatley or someone that is a factor in games night in and night out, the sting would be far less if we had to expose Nestrasil to waivers.  But, we lost him beacause Cleary is on the roster. Period. That is what stings the most.  Most of us hated the Cleary re-signing, and now that it cost us Nestrasil (and think about it, it could have cost us Ferraro AND Callahan earlier in the season) for nothing in return, people are a bit bitter when he scores a goal in his first game that he is given good minutes to play.  True, with the likes of Mantha, Pulkinnen, et al. coming up soon, we probably won't really miss Nestrasil, even though we did lose him to waivers, it's just that we lost him to protect Cleary. :puke:


Damned if you do, fool me twice if you don't.  It's just that damn Cleary guy...

Goal in his first game and apparently looks fantastic.
Lol. Please everyone watch the goal replay on the Colorado feed. Hilarity ensues when the guy tries to pronounce his name.

2020? Are we really 6 years away from seeing a contender? They may not win the SC before then, but I surely hope they contend before then.

#2550432 slava voynov suspended after domestic violence arrest

He should just run to the KHL.

I'm ok with the team being penalized a bit. But it shouldn't be his whole salary maybe 50% or less.

It'll get resolved soon though. If he actually faces prison time I gotta imagine he won't count against the cap then. But IMO it'll be more likely a deal is reached then it'll be interesting how long the NHL keeps him suspended for.


If I'm him I'm skipping town and going right to the KHL. Party with Putin.

He's an idiot? Really?

I can't speak for anyone else, but the last person in this world I'd expect to screw me over financially is my mother. It's one thing to be awful with money, but what they did with his money goes beyond being financially irresponsible - they milked the **** out of him. They treated him like a cash cow and ran his debt into the ground. The amount they spent/lost has more to do with their greed and taking advantage of a situation than it does with making smart decisions. Disgusting on their part.





When I first saw the headline I thought "what a moron."  But reading more about it and hearing what his parents did puts  it in a whole different light for me. 


I guess you can blame him for being naive and not picking up on the problem earlier, but it's his friggin parents.  The guy is likely busy playing hockey and trusting that his mother will be handling things and looking out for his best interests. 


Not having an agent didn't help.  Agents are often evil, but a necessary one in the entertainment business.

That's what he said.  But what else is he going to say?  So it's hard to put much stock into pronouncements like that. 
That said, Abby's been far from our biggest issue so far.  And I thought he would be.  I was wrong about that, but I do question anyone lamenting his play thus far. 
To me, there's a couple things we've got to do to score goals.  DEFINITELY need to get an offensive defenseman with a dynamic skill set.  Pay whatever you need to get someone like Green or Yandle.  Don't cheap out.  Secondly, we need two real top six centers who are healthy.  If those are going to be Datsyuk and Zetterberg, then go find another winger.  If Z is going to play the wing, go find a center.  In today's league it's easier to find a winger than a top flight center, so I'd probably move Z to center for the remainder of the season...but that's risky because he and Dats are injury prone and older.  So it's not a good strategy long term.  Probably should have traded for Spezza, Kesler, O'Reilly, or signed Stastny when we could.  Alas hindsight. 

Puck mover you say? I think Ian white is still available

Habs aren't gonna move Subban ... Easiest thing in the back end right now is to give a chance to ouellet/jensen/marchenko but for some reason were against it

Then holland will be surprised when our defense struggles in the future when we have 2-3 rookies in the back at the same time

He was being sarcastic. About 99% of his post are sarcasm. It's to the point where you can't take anything he says seriously.

And yes agree in the rookies thing. That's why they need oullete playing this year then when quincey a deal is up we can have sproul and oullete as our third pair(at that point third and firs year players). Still can't believe holland have Quincey a two year deal....then again I can since that's what he does.

#2548691 Mantha getting closer.

Posted by Richdg on 12 November 2014 - 09:10 PM

Yes! The Mantha Era begins Friday night! Regardless of how well he starts he needs a good 25+ games at the AHL level to even think about moving him up. Big step from junior to the pros. Give him some time.

#2546490 What happened to Calle Jarnkrok?

#2546480 What happened to Calle Jarnkrok?

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 03 November 2014 - 08:22 PM


we needed Legwand. Babcock relegated him to the 4th line so he could control his point production, so when they lowballed him come July 1st, they could use only his red wing points as the excuse. David was smarter than that, even though his first choice was to end his career as a Red Wing. Nothing personal, just business.


Now some of you might think this is crazy, tinfoil hat talk, but it has made so much clear to me. This must be why we're keeping Smith off the powerplay this year so that he won't inflate his value this year with all that scoring stuff. It also explains why we haven't played Cleary yet - If he scores his 30 goals, he'll be impossible to resign next year. Now we just have to get that Nyquist guy to stop scoring and Babcock's business plan will be going along perfectly. Hopefully these three aren't as smart as Legwand, though, or else they'll figure out what we're up to and run away to Ottawa for the big contracts.

#2546441 What happened to Calle Jarnkrok?

Posted by 9-HoweFan on 03 November 2014 - 03:38 PM

I think the "rumor" was started by the Wings to help justify that terrible trade.

#2546432 What happened to Calle Jarnkrok?

Posted by kipwinger on 03 November 2014 - 02:55 PM


Obviously not. I see what you're saying. And to be fair Ribeiro and Roy were risky signings. I guess Poile was just trying to fill his cupbaord.


The fact remains that Jarnkrok is way down Nashville's depth chart at the moment. He should be in Milwaukee right now.


Agreed.  I'm just saying that he's not producing because he's not getting any opportunity, not because he's no good.  He's only getting checking line minutes (13:26 per game) and at 180 lbs. he's not going to do you much good on a checking line. 

#2546429 What happened to Calle Jarnkrok?

Posted by kipwinger on 03 November 2014 - 02:41 PM


This does beg the question: If Jarnkrok's so s*** hot that Holland needs to be castrated for trading him, why did Poile go out and sign Ribeiro and Roy?



Probably so that Nashville's entire season wasn't resting on the shoulders of an NHL rookie with a mere 12 games of experience under his belt. 


Would you feel good going into a season with Riley Sheahan as your #1 center?
