#2507213 Lightning sign GM Yzerman to contract extension

Posted by frankgrimes on 08 April 2014 - 03:11 PM

WOW. JUST WOW. Still so many people butt-hurt about the Legwand trade? Y'know what? Holland should have just dressed Jarnkrok as our #1-4 centers and we'd probably be at 110 pts and first place in our division. Getting really sick of hearing all of the crying about Legwand and Holland as a bad GM. Try to take your fingers off the keys for a sec and realize that it needed to be done and, realistically, that we might not be sitting where we are right now if it wasn't for Legwand being brought in.

Just my 2 cents. You can't drink that milk anymore, stop f'in crying over it.

 

How about not reading it then if it annoys you so much ?




#2507181 Apparently it can get worse in Vancouver.

Epic job by Gillie and Torts running this team into the ground. They have had two extremely good goaltenders and are now left with Lack (already overplayed) and Markstrom. Gillian gave Grabber and Hodgson away for basically nothing and their AHL talent pool despite Shinkaruk and Horvat is very blank. However is going to the new GM there will have his hands full


#2506924 Dive of the Year

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 April 2014 - 11:42 PM

Like people mentioned Sindy can win all the trophies, stanley cups, be rich as hell and having an unbelievable beautfiful girlfriend at the end of the day he sometimes acts like a spoiled little brat if things aren't going his way. Boy would I love seeing him do that s*** against Backes or even better Colton Orr...

 

He is the best player in the world why do you have to use such low tactics ?!




#2506877 Backes on playing against Malkin and Crosby

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 April 2014 - 02:02 PM

As a huge Backes fan I didn't like it either, Hitchcock should look at the replay again. Bordelau threw a clean hit and Shattenkirk hurt himself with his own stick bad luck and well wishes but Backes acted like a monkey.

 

The Blues coach also said someone will go after Bordelau next time they are meeting so maybe that's Jackman? If the wannabe toughguy has at least a bit of a brain he shouldn't do it the only same goes for Backes, the only one who might do well against Bordelau is Reeves and even that's a long shot so let's see.

I don't care how the game ends I just want someone preferably Kronwall to lay out that chirping piece of s***
Be more specific, they have a lot of them.That may be the quote of the year regarding our D.

At least the dildos are hard, our D is soft.

#2504520 Detroit could be dangerous come playoff time...

Posted by frankgrimes on 02 April 2014 - 10:20 AM

How about making the playoffs first before jinxing it ? :(

 

Nothing is a given and as crazy as the race has been in the east it's far from over. Also Malkin will be back for the playoffs.

#2503524 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by frankgrimes on 30 March 2014 - 02:58 PM



Michigan boys like Legwand?

 

 Well yeah  but in their prime or prospects :-)

You trade from strength to address a weakness, and that's exactly what we did. How it works out is also important, of course, but just not the only important factor.

 

Thats why I've wanted defense :-)




#2503508 Do you want monster to start tomorrow?

Posted by frankgrimes on 30 March 2014 - 01:18 PM

Without the Monster, we would probably be in 10th and no where close to a playoff spot. He was super solid for us when Jimmy could not stop a beach ball. If the guy is healthy, let's use him. Howard can't go 10 in a row without getting too exhausted and we need him to be fresh down the stretch.

I think Monster has been seriously overlooked this year as a guy who played a pivotal role for us but .....that's not weird- the young guys, the underdogs and the underrateds have been carrying it this team.
Let's go MONSTER and let's go Wings.....I would Love to see Mule, Alfie and Legwand show up tonight instead of relying on the young guys to carry this thing. maybe Monster in net will lead that charge!

 

Monster will have a tough task ahead of him Stammer and a for sure motivated Filps isn't something to take lightly. One thing is for sure the Wings need to come out prepared otherwise the Bolts are going to put this game away early in the first.




#2503507 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by frankgrimes on 30 March 2014 - 01:16 PM

 

Yes they did.  

 

 

 

I remember people losing their minds over that trade, just like they're losing their minds over Jarnkrok.  Just because he was their best center prospect, that doesn't mean he was truly a legit top line center, and the odds are a lot higher that he's going to be a 40 point a year guy than a guy who's going to come in and come close to a point a game.

 

Let me reiterate that the Wings have employees whose main job is to evaluate their own prospects.  I don't care how many good things they've said about the kid in the press, they say good things about every prospect.  The fact that they were willing to trade him for Legwand tells me that they weren't nearly as high on him as a lot of the fans are.  If they were, they could have moved anyone of a number of other kids instead of him.

 

I get what you are trying to say I really do but you know desperate times are calling for desperate actions and once desperation is getting the best out of you...rational thinking takes a backseat. Holland himself said their goal was trying to get defensive help or do nothing but then further injuries happened and Wings had to change their plans.

 

It is what is now but I will say this, I PRAY Jarnkrok becomes a star so a mistake like that won't happen twice.
