Seems like the kind of game where one of our guys needs to be carried off on a stretcher for us to get a power play

Jurco is going to be a beast

Step away from the bong, dude.


An unbiased observer watching these last 20 games would say the same thing

It's the same thing that happened with Ericsson. He was dreadful and the forum hated him. Than he improved a lot but people still cursed his name over things that weren't his fault. It took almost a year of good play for LGW to acknowledge his improvement

I call this game "the Quincey factor". If we win, I'm hoping this means Quincey's days on this team are numbered and we pull out a miracle for a top tier defensemen. If we lose (most likely due to Quincey) Holland puts down the phone and we get the "we like our team" mantra and we make no trades. Either way, one thing is clear. Quincey is horrible.


Lol Quincey has been our third best defensemen for a while now. The blind hate is ridiculous. There's a reason he's the only dman on this team that other GMs are interested in.

Maybe we should buy out Datsyuk and Zetterberg and Alfredsson and Franzen and Weiss and Kronwall and Howard too just in case Crosby and Malkin and Stamkos and Tavares and Kane and Toews and Doughty and Weber and Karlsson and Rask become available! We wouldn't want to miss out on them! But only if they're willing to sign for league minimum, because it would be disrespectful to our next franchise captain who hasn't even been born yet to sign anyone to a higher salary than him!!!


Have you ever seen Vanek play hockey? Seems you just want him because we have money and he's the biggest FA that is going for the money. Lots of teams have a lot of money too. He'll go to some bad team with the same ideals as you

If we paid that much for Vanek we're still not going anywhere in the playoffs if we don't get a capable top 4 defensemen. This team can find the goals we need. We don't need to pay 1M dollars for 4.5 goals if he can somehow reach his career highs again

Lol @ Vanek for 9 mil. We need a capable defensemen a hell of a lot more than overpaying for a guy like Vanek. We'll score a lot more goals if we had another defensemen that could chip in offensively and pass the puck. Having a D man that can put up 50+ points and make our power play up to top 10 is an extra 35+ goals a year

All I know is he has 24 points in 32 games now with 14 goals.  He's getting to scoring areas and burying a decent amount.  Loving that kid.


Ya it was a compliment. He is pretty much a rookie as well he'll bury those open netters soon enough

Jimmy has been the worst starting goalie we've had in like 10+ years. I know he is a great goalie and has been in the past but this year he's been awful
He is like 10 games below .500 he has some of the worst stats of any starting goalie

Let's respond with our 4th line against their 1st some great work babs


#2481761 Vets over the Kids?, not any more eh Babs.

It's so funny that Holland believed Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Alfredsson and Kronwall wasn't enough veteran presence for this team

I like how Weiss didn't use his injury as an excuse for his poor play. I almost expected him to lash out on Babcock when he was a regular 4th line center but he kept his mouth shut. I think the whole team knew he was playing with an injury then everyone realized he would need to have surgery because he wasn't cutting it

This place has a blind faith in DD he can do no wrong and Quincey can't do anything right

Defense needs to get their s*** together. Could have easily lost that game in regulation if Howard wasn't playing great


#2479057 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by joesuffP on 30 January 2014 - 08:27 PM

With us being up against the cap and seemingly weak in every position I don't see how we could possibly make a move that makes us better at the deadline. I think it's finally time to start a real rebuild. Everybody but Zetterberg is on the table
