#2521569 Dan Boyle not coming back to the Sharks

Posted by Euro_Twins on 23 May 2014 - 08:20 PM

I'd love to have Boyle.  Under-valued for his current expectation because of his recent struggles, but a champion is inside.


He would redeem himself in Detroit. I'd love to have him

Vanek is playing on the 4th line because he's been bad. You know, like so many people want Babcock to do to the goat du jour here.

Lol f*** Chicago


#2521315 Regner: Next year could be Babcock's last

Posted by Euro_Twins on 21 May 2014 - 09:40 AM

I'm sure everything Babcock said was true -- he likes his life, he likes the team, the grass isn't always greener, etc. But that doesn't mean he is not going to listen to other offers if and when he gets to free agency. Someone comes in and offers $10M/season, you could buy a fancy hunting lodge and a big cottage on a lake for that. This talk will end only if/when MB signs a new contract -- until then he will be fans'/media's darling candidate for every good coaching job in hockey.



Babcock makes $2m/year which is tops in the league. Not even gms make more than that. The fact is babs won't be leaving for more money, maybe for a new opportunity but no gm is offering a coach $3m/year, let alone 10

Hasek didn't get past the 2nd round for 6 years, and in his 9 seasons with the Sabres only made it past the second round twice. 
 
I'm not saying Lundqvist is necessarily the world's best goaltender, but that's a pretty strange metric you're using.


I'm not saying he isn't a great goalie. I'm just saying great goalies can only get you so far. The fact that "the king" has only gotten past the second round for the second time now just goes to show that even if we had the best goalie in the league we wouldn't fare any better in the playoffs if we can't defend properly or score more


#2521124 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

XM I disagree. 3 years from now when the young guys you mention are developed-which they will be, Datsyuk will be gone, Z and Kronwall will be in the late 30's-who knows how much they will still be able to produce, Franzen will be gone I HOPE! Ericsson mid 30's etc.... The point is, the young guys are not coming fast enough to replace what we will be losing, which in fact has been the problem the last 4 or 5 years.
Even if all of the young guys that have already made it to detroit pan out-which history says they will not, none of them are guys any sees a future 80 point guy. Most look like good solid 2nd and 3rd line players. Guys that will score between 15-25 goals with 40-50 points per year. Yes every team needs guys like that. But it is your point per game guys that win cups. Or if a team is able to shut down those point per game guys.


I can see nyquist putting up 70 points/year by then

I was kidding. I haven't let WWII go yet. I tend to hold grudges for a long time, even if things happened before I was born. Don't even get me started on the Romans. 


I'm still Pissed at the asteroids for killing the dinosaurs

How do you say "s***-kicking" en francais?


Kicken Le s***... Probably

Rags are destroying the habs


#2520904 Dan Boyle not coming back to the Sharks

Posted by Euro_Twins on 16 May 2014 - 08:54 PM

I dont know much about him but I've heard that he may be done...
 
Its possible that his play has dipped alot so holland will probably get him signed for a decade or so


Holland doesn't sign guys like that for more than 2 years at most. Every team signs these types of players. Go to any fan forum and all the fans do is ***** about how they signed this vet or that vet that's washed up. You need vets to be successful, you can't win with just youth. Look at Edmonton

Mantha is a beast and it makes me so excited seeing a guy like this in the pipeline, I could almost pee my pants

Memorial Cup Val d'Or vs London Knights  is on Sportsnet tonight. Griffins play tonight as well. What a dilemma.


One on the computer, one on the t.v.?

Maybe he's just been given great talent by Holland...


Nonsense


#2520607 Shero & Bylsma Fired

Posted by Euro_Twins on 15 May 2014 - 08:35 AM

Wasn't Shero just last year being touted as one of the best if not the best gm?


Not by me. Their philosophy of trade all your prospects and picks to win a cup now hasn't worked for them and I never believed that it would

0/10, not enough Hampus. Needs more Melen.


Agreed more melen needed indeed. I just wish all our guys had a little more hampus melen in them.. wait, that sounds wrong and dirty... I like it


#2520354 WCSF : (7) Minnesota vs. (5) Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by Euro_Twins on 14 May 2014 - 07:25 AM

Chicago looks like we did in 08/09
Boston looks like Pittsburgh in 08/09.............................


So Chicago is better but Boston gets a lot of help from the refs?
