#2518408 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by DeGraa55 on 30 April 2014 - 04:11 PM

:lol: Holland overpays in trade yet tries to under pay the UFA's out there... I think he has it backwards.
That  being said, I would also take Kesler for Helm, Smith and 1st.  But as I mentioned in the other thread, what about throwing Edler in? What would have to be added to make that blockbuster?  I personally would throw Franzen in along with Almqvist.

Adding in Franzen for elder? No that wouldn't get it done. If any GM actually watches Franzen play they'd realize just how little worth he has.

#2518320 Red Wings expect changes for 2014 - 2015

Posted by DeGraa55 on 30 April 2014 - 03:42 AM

I have a question. After seeing how smith played with kronwall(great for those who may struggle with the answer).

And we still have Ericsson and dekeyser so WHY DO WE NEED A TOP 4?!?!??!???

Unless someone is planning to be moved? I mean I'd like a right handed guy but this kind of blows my mind.

#2518249 Remember when the Pens locked out Michigan ticket buyers?

I don't see anything wrong with it. A business owner doesn't want to sell tickets to a certain group of people. It's fine by me.

#2517796 What Happened to Nyquist?

Posted by DeGraa55 on 27 April 2014 - 07:39 PM

If everyone is saying that Nyquist met up with a far superior team, like the Bruins, then is it time to finally say this quick, small Euros need to go? Because Boston isn't going anywhere. We need to be more like them to win a cup. Aside from 02, the Wings have always had grittiness in their lineup. And even in 02, they had some...

Not all small euros no. No one is saying the small euros can't work. You just need bakance. Add some size and we be fine.

Well this just pisses me off.  

My god did I read that right?

I know I know. Options are s*** an s***ty.

#2517779 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by DeGraa55 on 27 April 2014 - 06:54 PM

Filppula: on pace for 63 pts
Franzen: on pace for 62 pts

Fil costs about a million more than Franzen, so Tampa should buy him out right?

Franzen buy out a no brainer? U ppl live in a bizarre fantasy land
Hudler: on pace for 59 pts and he costs the same as Franzen. Calgary definitely going to buy him out too *rolls eyes*

What a clown. Do you watch hockey? Fil plays defense and actually makes an effort. Franzen floats floats and does some more floating.

#2517526 NHL lacks class.

Do you watch bball or football? Hockey is THE classiest.

#2517472 Was Legwand worth it?

Weiss has an NTC???? Wtf?

Ya holland thought Weiss AND Sammy were so good he they both got NTC LOL

#2515841 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by DeGraa55 on 25 April 2014 - 03:45 PM

He def has been looking good. And I still can't figure out why babs seems to do everything possible to keep him off the power play. I saw him out there a couple times with kronwall I think? But it seems he still tries to have a fourth forward on the top PP which makes no sense to me. Smith and kronwall could do wonders on the same PP IMO. I just wish one was righty..:

#2512825 Unsporting Trend

Posted by DeGraa55 on 21 April 2014 - 05:27 AM

I love it. It's nice when people show emotion. Now does it go over the top sometimes? Yes. But this is a sport after all I like it when people show their emotion.

Hope they both play as third pairing.

#2509008 Babcock and Holland Talk About Stuff

Posted by DeGraa55 on 12 April 2014 - 07:08 PM

Was it ever "officially" determined that they were going to buy out Sammy?  I think it was denied on all sides.  In any case, I meant it as more of a hypothetical scenario, not that they had to do all those exact things. 

Sammy or his agent (can't remember exactly)said that the wings never made any contact whatsoever about a buyout.

Well, they brought back Cleary, so there's that.  ;) 
I always felt like the 1st compliance was kind of wasted on Colaiocovo.  He wasn't great by any stretch, but his contract wasn't an albatross, and I'd have rather they rid themselves of a forward than a defenseman.  Babcock seemed to dislike him from the get go, like Tootoo.

I personally felt it was a waste cause they gave him(and Sammy) two year deals when it wasn't needed. They had questions at both positions, fine. Sign them TO A ONE YEAR DEAL. No team was going to sign them anyways lol.

Posted by DeGraa55 on 09 April 2014 - 04:12 AM

I honestly normally don't wish for anything bad or dirty to happen to anyone. But if someone cross checked Crosby in his dick sucker I'd celebrate. He truly is a disgrace...

#2502522 kid gets blasted by the glass CBJ v. MTL game

Hope the kid was all right. Not going to lie got a good laugh out of it.

#2502521 Goalies Gone Wild

Posted by DeGraa55 on 27 March 2014 - 10:57 PM

I guess I don't get it. Coach didn't do his job and pull him after the first six goals so he pulled himself after the 7th.
