This Ericsson hate is reaching ridiculous levels.




#2619042 #73 OA - Defenseman Vili Saarijarvi

Posted by Ekmanc on 04 July 2015 - 07:53 PM

Second day comments from Malik: 

 

Vili Saarijarvi 71: I shrug my shoulders and go, "Pro pace, pro pace." I have seen Vili for the sum total of about an hour, and I already understand that the Red Wings didn't overreact by signing him to a pro contract some eight days after he was drafted. He's not big at 5'10" and he's not massively physically imposing, but he is an elegant puckhandler, a smart, slick passer and a superb skater who just does everything well. Tyler Wright called him the "complete package" and that's not off. He's really, really good and I don't know how the Wings got him in the 3rd round, either, because he plays like a 1st round pick.


From the 2015 draft thread.....

 

 

 ... we been bitching forever that we need defensemen but we get a 5;9 dman that didnt look good in his short stint at ushl and returned back to finland....

 

The clear implication in that sentence is that he couldn't hack hockey in NA so he's going home

There are many other reasons to go back but either way he seems to be playing for Flint next season.

A great offensive dman that doesn't score or set up plays :P

Sorry, I love the Swedes but... ;)

Well at least we never pick Swedes in the first round, we make good round 5-7 steals ;)

I absolutely love Pierre McGuire's commentary.  Screw everybody who doesn't. 

The master of talking about what schools the players have gone to.

Do we still promote Blashill if he loses Calder Cup?  

No we send him to the salt mines!

I thought it sounded like Toronto has been unsafe for players since they get hung out in the media for every single thing that happens.




#2608112 What's our draft position this year? And best defensemen available

Posted by Ekmanc on 16 May 2015 - 11:30 AM

Considering everything that euro players have done to make this club successful you'd think this xenophobic bulls*** would be over and done with by now but yet it rears its ugly head in almost every discussion about new players...




#2605963 WMHC 2015

Posted by Ekmanc on 04 May 2015 - 05:22 PM

I missed the game this morning, how did Larkin do?

Apparently he played pretty well but was -2.




#2605560 Locker room Clean-Out Updates

Posted by Ekmanc on 02 May 2015 - 09:22 AM

Eh there are tons of small players who make it work, Johnson isn't exactly a giant and he was easily the best player of our series against Tampa.

Nyquist can make it work but he has a lot of work to do to figure it out.

Am I the only person who doesn't want Mike green?

I'm not entirely convinced he'd be a good fit in Detroit either.




#2605283 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by Ekmanc on 01 May 2015 - 09:43 AM

Dekeyser wasn't "our prospect" at any time.




#2604776 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

The PK hate is really getting old. If he was on our team, this board would be oozing with joy at that fact on a daily basis, as they should.


This is a weak argument. I'd like Barnaby and Claude Lemieux in our team too. Doesn't mean they weren't flaming pieces of s***.
