#2623987 Wings hire Bryan Campbell as Director of Statistical Analysis

Posted by Euro_Twins on 28 August 2015 - 10:04 AM

Definitely a new age of Wings Hockey
 
Kyle over at wingingitinmotown.com says this is the first time the wings have openly hired a director of analytics


But you can't score goals or win fights with maths. You need good ol truculence and eyebalzz


#2623630 Z and Emma expecting

Posted by Euro_Twins on 20 August 2015 - 04:46 PM

It isn't like it's a different ethinic spelling of a common American name, like Niklas. It's a name that will undoubtedly be mispronounced his entire life, and has a specific different meaning in English. They have said they are planning on residing in the US after retirement. Lidstrom managed to have 4 kids and give them names that were common in both Sweden and the US.  But, then again, he is the perfect human.


I don't know why you or anyone else for that matter cares what someone else names their baby. Especially someone you have no personal affiliation with. It's a name that probably has meaning to them, is it out of the realm of possibility that kids don't make fun of him and just call him Lou?


#2622813 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by Euro_Twins on 10 August 2015 - 10:35 PM

 
Wow..that is possibly the dumbest thing I've read this year.    I'm saying that you can't confuse the hype of advertising with reality.  All of the ills that exist in Vegas exist in most large, urban areas...the difference is that vegas has decided to make it the rationale for visiting them.  Our franchise OWNER has an interest in a Casino..unless you accept the wife subterfuge as reality...do we really want to use gambling as a reason to not expand to Vegas?    That seems really stupid


You compare Mickey mouse to casino city and I'm the one who has the dumb post? Just because you've been to Disney world and you saw some stressed out parents does not mean nhl players won't getvdrawn into the tempations of Vegas and start giving the league even more unnecessary drama


#2622783 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

"What happens in Vegas" is advertising...I'm not sure you can put much stock in that.  I mean...does anyone think Walt Disney World is really the happiest place on earth?  I've been there a bunch of times...crying kids, stressed parents, a line of bewildered people waiting to pay $4 for a $1.50 bottle of Dasani water.   It's not happy...it's hell.


Are you saying because Disney world over charges for a bottle of water that gambling, drugs and prostitutes don't exist in Vegas by the boatloads? Good to know...


#2622211 Who is the better player Zetterberg or Toews. Prime vs. Present

Posted by Euro_Twins on 04 August 2015 - 08:00 AM

kind of surprising we have serious discussion about it... Towes seems slightly better now and even this statement is questionable. You can't compare these two in their primes. In his prime Zetterberg was not only on par but dominated the best players in the league including Crosby.


So like you just said in his prime z was better. Even now x puts up just as many points and is just as good defensively even with his bad back


#2622196 Which prospect will have the best nhl career

Posted by Euro_Twins on 03 August 2015 - 08:02 PM

Few know very much about Svech and Mantha didn't live up to the unrealistic hype so, of course Larkin's going to win this poll. I'll vote Mantha to send some good vibes his way.


I voted svech. I really want a Malkin type player on this team, and the fact that he's Russian is and added bonus


#2622189 Which prospect will have the best nhl career

Posted by Euro_Twins on 03 August 2015 - 07:39 PM

HAMPUS

MELEN


I love you. Marry me lol.

I should have made that it's own option


#2622094 Free agents this off season

Posted by Euro_Twins on 02 August 2015 - 06:22 PM

Bernier - : "How many times do I need to bail out our s**** defense? Exactly" - Walks away. 

Reimer's confidence is under the gutter unfortunately. Toronto ruined him. 


Bernier: " Nelson Mandela would have never let his team play such s*** defense"


#2621990 Who is better Nyquist or Tatar?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 August 2015 - 12:23 AM

I went with goose. But I felt guilty doing it because I like them both and I love tatars tenacity.


#2621917 Voracek gets rich! over 8mil per

Posted by Euro_Twins on 31 July 2015 - 12:52 PM

Voracek has literally *1* point per game season. The rest are all 40-50 points. I firmly believe this contract is a huge gamble. Another example of teams (ugh Philly again) over inflating contracts based on one good performance


#2621651 Holtby Asking for $8M

You kids and your fancy information and your gender equality and your hi-fi radios.


WiFi radios now grandpa


#2621594 Holtby Asking for $8M

Posted by Euro_Twins on 25 July 2015 - 09:42 PM

yeah screw math; whoever said 2+2 = 4 is full of it because sometimes it can equal 5


It can if one of those 2's has a slutty number friend and then magically it's a 3


#2621561 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by Euro_Twins on 25 July 2015 - 02:25 PM

I'm hoping that is an experiment we will see.
 
PP #1 Hank, Pav, Abby Kronner, Green
PP #2 Nyquist, Richards, Jurco, Dekeyser, Pulkkinen.
 
 
 
Nice!


I'd rather have kronner by himself on the first unit like last year and dd and green together on the second because kronner can qb the pp by himself dekeyser isn't great offensively and green isn't great defensively so that would work out better for both


#2621138 Holtby Asking for $8M

Posted by Euro_Twins on 21 July 2015 - 10:53 PM

Again with you saying this on these forums.
 
The only King Henrik around here is Henrik Zetterberg.


At least he has a cup

OMG!! IT GOT DONE!! WITH ONLY SECONDS TO SPARE!


I'm surprised he had to accept those table scraps considering how established he is as an nhl player
