#2535378 potential team names for las vegas!

Posted by Euro_Twins on Yesterday, 01:06 PM

They should probably pick the name based on the most likely Canadian market the team will move to after being a financial disaster for years. 


The las Vegas maple leafs

I edit my original statement. I don't want to gossip like that. I think the trainers guard may have been down because we were mostly discussing his Ice Bucket Challenge and my ALS.

If you edit my quote out of your post, I'll put up a vid of the trainer I was talking to working the Wings. :-)


Because you asked so nicely I deleted it.

If the arena is on the strip, they can call themselves The Las Vegas Strippers.

Although that might get a little confusing with guys looking for a good time, but instead ending up at Vegas hockey game.


Good g r business though.

Hey you wanna go see the las Vegas strippers?

Hel Ya!!

Wait what the he'll is this?

We would need to change our name to the Detroit tire kickers


We wouldn't have to change the logo, just put a foot next to it in a kicking motion.

#2535024 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

There you have it: six feet from the horse's mouth.


I decline to comment. What is being said is not confirmed nor can it be identified as the absolute truth, it's also unreasonable to assume it is false, we will evaluate where we are when the time becomes appropriate and adjust accordingly. The main concern has and always will be the growth and financial health of the nhl, therefore we cannot and will not comment at this time.

#2534893 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 August 2014 - 03:08 PM

You need good scouting and proper development in order to get value from your draft picks, as well as a solid plan (looking at you, Oilers), but a high percentage of the elite players come from the top half of the first round.  Last year's top 8 scorers were first round picks, 3 first overall, a 2nd, a 5th, then 19th, 22nd, and 28th.  Looking at the top 30 scorers, only 6 were taken outside of the first round, and 18 of the 30 were top 10 picks.  Looking at defensemen by TOI/gm, 12 of the top 30 were first rounders, and 7 were taken in the second.  Given that 18 year old defensemen are harder to project, that makes sense, but it still shows that you're far more likely to get a #1 defenseman in the first round than you are in any other round.

 
They didn't.  Yzerman and Fedorov were better players.


Ya, two of the best players in the league aren't comparable to two of the best players of the league. They were in a much higher scoring league then the one z and d grew up in, no one will ever rack up the points those guys did anymore. But we replaced them with some "possible top 6 complimentary pieces"

Talk about overhype ...Nyquist could turn into a star but it's also possible him only becoming a top 6 contributor and for me that's good enough.neither Nyquist nor Tatar will turn into Z or Pasha.It's funny reading how the team keeps winning although the best they've done is barely making the playoffs and not even sniffing at the third round dice almost 6 years.The sabers will have a very dangerous team in a few years and the isles where held back by an incompetent management and a penny pinching owner.The reality is also really simple the Holland will need some homerun drafts and prepare the Wings much better for the post Z and Pasha era, than he did with the post Lidas one.


I remember when z and d would never turn into Stevie and feds...

It's not s***ting on anything, it's honest.  
 
Start with '09, go back 15 years, find higher end players the Wings have taken after the second round.
 
Nyquist is probably going to be a top 6 player, he may or may not be more than a complimentary 60 point player.  Franzen is Franzen.  Filppula is inconsistent from year to year.  Zetterberg in 99, Datsyuk in 98.  So 2 elite players, 3 good guys who aren't elite and in 2 cases aren't even that good for stretches, and some role players.  Sure it's better than some teams, but there are people who act like the Wings get some star player late in the draft every couple years, and they knew for a fact that Zetterberg and Datsyuk were going to be stars.  Neither is true.
 
The reason I'm not looking at the older drafts is that the rules have changed completely.  Russians weren't drafted int he 80's because they had to be snuck out of the country.  Not every player was willing to do that, and it took a lot of resources to get the ones who did want to come.  They had to have contacts in Russia, ind the right people to bribe and spend the money to do it, and find a way to get the player, and his family in some cases, out of the country.  The Wings were one of the few teams that had an owner who was able and willing to commit to that.


The red wings are far and away the best draft team and its widely recognized as such even by other teams announcers. We don't get high end draft spots cause we never miss the playoffs. So no we didn't get a toews, Kane, ovie, Malkin, Crosby, Tavares, or so on. We make our own superstars. Nyquist WILL be a star, so there you go, Tatar may be a grind it top 6 tough as nails type player, but the goose is loose, and everyone knows it. We won a cup through the draft basically. All these teams tanking to win... The same three teams keep winning and the sabres, islanders, Panthers, oilers, as well as others always getting these top 5 picks but somehow never win are getting top end talents every year. We keep winning without tanking.

We took guys like Datsyuk in late rounds because we knew we could. No one else scouted him. Or like with Zetterberg, Hakan saw something no one else did. I can't remember but wasn't Zberg like really underweight kid when we drafted him? Or something like that.


As was datsyuk. They were "small soft euros" and they turned into two of the best nil players of their time.

Other teams get lucky with one guy on their team drafted late that turned into a star. The wings however have stocked the shelves with great talents I'n late rounds and won a cup. We have nyquist, Tatar, and possibly others coming up now that "we just got lucky with" and we had filppula and hudler before too. We are very good at late round drafts and we don't have to rank to win. Its the one thing I can't knock Holland for.

That being said I think he shouldn't have been extended still.

I say let Holland run it, it'll give him something to do in the offseason.


Nope. He would just post congratulations Cleary on taking us for fools, and never post again until next year.

I wasn't exactly being specific you guys get the idea...it'll be resigning of a couple or several guys with little to no action in free agency or trades.


That sucks, free agency and trade is usually our bread and butter

That does not mean he's going to be fired at all lol. Red Wings fans HATE Holland right now and the guy just got an extension. Why? Because 99% of fans are blithering idiots who can't see past the next immediate season, so I'm sure the organization really couldn't care less what we think.
 
EDIT: There's no option available better than Holland


Thanks for calling me a blithering idiot :) it's not just missing out on fa's it's also stuff like bringing Cleary back twice, quincey, Sammy, among others. Holland can't let go, and that in turn helps free agents decisions to not want to come here. If he was building a team that would be good in the future I would be ok with him, but he constantly brings in guys who are useless to our team, and I've had enough. I've defended him for several years now, enough is enough
