#2558046 12/19 GDT : Islanders 2 at Red Wings 1

for drafting Ouellet in the first place and, generally, managing our prospects pretty well over the last 16 years.
 
Thats what you were thanking him for, right?


I've said many times his drafting is the best in te business.

But his free agent signings are decent and trades and roster management is quite poor.

The fact that Babcock wants ouellette and holland won't keep him on the team blows my mind.


#2558045 Rank our griffins d prospects

Posted by DeGraa55 on Today, 03:26 AM

Well no s***...
 
That's exactly why he should be given more of a chance. He was one of the top defenders in the SHL before he left and he will be a great defender here too once he settles into it but you need to be given some form of confidence from your coach.



But at the same time you need to EARN it.

#2557394 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

Posted by DeGraa55 on 17 December 2014 - 12:24 AM

Obviously it's because Howard is average.

Howard and this defense gave up 0 goals in 65 mins because they clearly suck.


Offense couldnt score one goal...

Kind of hard to break up that Helm-Dats-Tatar line. They've been dynamite. Plus, we need balanced scoring on all the lines. Hence why this team was rolling when we were able to throw out Miller-disney.com-Jurco as the fourth line. Can't really call that a demotion for Jurco either with all the minutes that line plays. 


Jurco is one third?


And a third of Weiss helm and jurco can score.

We are legit a healthy Weiss away from icing the best/hungriest possibly lineup. 



If Weiss was in for cleary then swap Sheahan and helm and I would REALLY like this lineup top to bottom.

#2557022 slava voynov suspended after domestic violence arrest

Final chance.
Fine.
But he needs to be ran the first time he steps the ice if this is all true.


O I completely agree. He deserves a beating.


#2557017 slava voynov suspended after domestic violence arrest

Posted by DeGraa55 on 16 December 2014 - 02:32 AM

Hopefully his contract will get voided and they send his wife beating disgusting animal ass back to Russia.what a douchebag


Now while I'm not defending him this might be too far.

I've always been a firm believer people deserve a second chance. He should be suspended for the full year. Then like NFL if there is a second incident banned for life.

Rather someone does something major or minor once is an accident twice is a habit or whatever the saying is.

So after a long suspension and after jail time counseling etc etc he shoukd get a second and FINAL chance.


#2556834 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by DeGraa55 on 15 December 2014 - 06:30 AM

This roster is one top D and power forward short of being a real contender in the playoffs. Not sure if we have enough assets to make the deals we need.



No that's not even a debate. We HAVE the assets.

It's just a matter of do we want to trade any of Tatar nyquist smith dekeyser mrazek mantha Larkin etx etc

We have the assets. We just sit wanna give then up. Which is fine it just makes the rebuild a bit longer. Holland clearly feels more comfortable with building from within cause the strengths are scouting and player development not trading.

I've always been a firm believer if a goalie goes out to play the puck they're fair game to be hit.


But that was too late and getzlaf reaction was pathetic.

Those terrible Leafs just won again, in a shootout. They now have 18 wins and are only two points behind Detroit with a game in hand. But we're so much better than them.


I always thought it crazy when people here said that.

But one thing I think people are forgetting is about the parity. Ya some people like it or hate it. But I mean there's like 10 teams that are close in talent.

You go on a hot streak like we did or Toronto is now of course you're going to sky rocket in the standings.

But all that matters is where we are after 82 games. There will be lots of ups and downs it's just about getting hot at the right time.
