#2652471 2016 Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by puckbags on Today, 05:49 PM

 

So you would prefer a system where only a few teams are good, and where the highest draft picks go to the best teams? What is the point of the of even having small market teams? With that philosophy, you may as well downsize to a 20 team league. I don't see anything "mediocre" about today's NHL. I wouldn't call teams like Chicago and LA mediocre.

 

I prefer a system where the teams that do things the right away are rewarded for what they have done.  It has nothing to do with small market, lots of small market teams have been successful because they build a franchise properly without bail outs from the league.  a 20 team league is pushing it but the fact they are talking about adding more teams is ludicrous.  Parity is so typcial of today's society, no one wants to hurt anyone's feelings so they try to make everyone equal  If you suck and can't do things right you suck...end of story.  I didn't say the highest draft picks should go to the best teams but it needs to be changed in a way that the top teams don't get penalized for being good every year. Of course Chicago isn't mediocre but LA missed the playoffs last year.  Look at this year, we have Washington, Chicago and maybe you can put Dallas in there but after that it's 25+ teams within 6-8 points of each other followed by the usual bottom feeders. I like domination at the top, I like dynasty's ( depending on what your meaning of that is ). I like it when the really good teams crush the bad teams.

Wins are always slow nights man. Losses are when the divas come out.


#2651114 Should the Red Wings Trade for Byfuglien?

Why not? Dude would be an instant fan favorite in Detroit, providing size and toughness on the backend that we've been missing since forever.

 

Give them Nyquist straight up. If they want a defensmen, too, throw in Smith, or convince them that Ericsson is worth a damn.

 

He'd probably be a rental

Of course everyone is going to blame Jimmy, but I don't think he had a bad game at all. We gave way too many good chances.

 

No, Jimmy did'nt have a bad game, it's just his habit of letting in a stinker at the worst possible time that did them in. If you can't make the crucial stops when needed, who cares about the rest of the game really?

Ducks announcers were sooo annoying:

 

Redwings don't have a defencemen on the....oops Green is on the ice.

 

Watch Gibson drop his stick....sorry no he never dropped his stick.

 

He said a bunch of other similar mistakes earlier as well.

 

Ya I had that feed as well. Horrid.

2. Sitting Mrazek coming off of a shutout is terrible coaching. I DO NOT CARE IF ITS BACK TO BACK. HES A WORLD CLASS ATHLETE
 

 

Yeah I agree, look at guys like Lundqvist. They don't sit much. No reason Mrazek shouldn't have started, especially coming off a SO.

If Jurco can get into beast mode and unlock the potential many have seen, look out.


#2649371 Forward Line Combos/Discussion

It's like most Wings fans are afraid to admit it, but I believe Jurco's played like absolute s*** since his 1st rookie callup
