All the right answers.

I love it. Everyone is either Crosby or datsyuk, datsyuk says "I try to, I don't watch hockey, I don't know why, we have too many meetings" which means I'm the best player I've ever seen play

Also near the end when do your eyes light up most, Phaneuf says, when we win... His eyes don't light up often

I voted over 40 because I'm bad at gambling.


I'll bet you $50 I can't swallow a tablespoon of cinnamon


#2619667 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by Euro_Twins on 08 July 2015 - 04:22 PM

You're wrong mate. 
 
Proof and source - http://blog.mlive.co...xing_fedor.html
 
"On the eve of the "deadline" we had many conversations about Fedorov," Holland has stated. "I have collected 13 or 14 club officials--all our coaches, managers, and pro scouts. The emotions caused by possible return of Sergei, were [very] different. Yes, I have received Mike's opinion (Babcock--note, Igor Larin), but other positions were expressed. "We decided upon a certain offer, however Sergei eventually has been traded to "Washington " (the Capitol has given the young defender Teddy Ruth for the Russian veteran--note, Igor Larin). Such situation in general we arranged. They intended to receive a really good prospect player for Sergei, and we didn't want to give those up."
 
 Holland really tried to get Fedorov, despite of the veto of the coach. However "Columbus" has requested from "Detroit" young forward Valteri Filppula and a first-round draft pick. As a result after these negotiations, and from this perspective "Columbus" has refused, having decided to not strengthen a club of the [same] division and having given the Russian legionary to a team not only in another division, but also the other conference.
 
There was apparently some sort of consensus in the room that several people had major concerns about bringing Fedorov back to Detroit, and in all likelihood, the concerns were related to both Fedorov's on-ice performance and the substantial off-ice distractions that Fedorov faced during his later years as a Wing.
---------------------
 
So 14 opinions and a lot of them didn't want Fedorov. Holland ultimately decided no because he didn't want to give up prospects and Filpulla.
 
Enough with trying to push the "Babcock is to blame" narrative. You're just wrong. 


I can't believe Columbus was asking that much for a 38 year old, who couldn't out up very many points anymore

Eh.
I do and I don't.
I mostly wanted to use the phrase intangibulls**t because I thought it was funny.
I agree Toews isn't a top 10 player in the league skill wise, but he's good to great in every quantifiable category on top of what he brings as a captain, which you can't really put a dollar figure on.


If you say intangibALLS it carries more truculence


#2619280 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by Euro_Twins on 06 July 2015 - 05:29 PM

Franson is a right-handed Quincey with a better shot. That's it. Quincey is the more physical player of the two as well.

I don't get the obsession.


Franson isn't very good defensively either. I'm with you. I'm happy we got green over Cody, at least great is great offensively

Saad may be overpaid now but in a few years his contract will look like a steal.

Pulkinnen has his work cut out for him so that's a different story.

I mean what comparables would be there to award him anything less than 5 million? He would be stupid to accept a bridge deal or a long term contract paying him less than what he would get as an unregistered free agent...if the Wings don't like it they can always walk away or maybe they'll reach an agreement before sa..but to act like 3 to 4 mill would be fair for what he brings may be false.


That's the point the are restricted free agent for a reason. You don't get to be unrestricted until 27, so why would you get unrestricted money before then?

#2619013 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by Euro_Twins on 04 July 2015 - 03:15 PM

That still doesn't make them throw their fists harder.
And theyre Always whining and crying when stuff doesn't go their way...


Plus the whole crawling thing doesn't lend itself to being a great skater.
BTW...
I actually really like this deal.

I didn't at first, but the thought of Richards feeding pucks to pulks is getting me excited.

Richards may not be as fleet of foot, or as creative as he once was, but he's still a really good playmaker.


Ya and when you take their candy people frown at you like you did something wrong. Like seriously? Maybe if they could punch harder people wouldn't steal their stuff

#2618758 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by Euro_Twins on 02 July 2015 - 04:16 PM

Nice to see holland and others hopefully in the organization getting over the fact fedorov left the team ... s*** happens


If people over look the fact he left (after 13 years) you'll realize he's a sure thing (or should be at least) to get his jersey retired

One of big reasons we won those cups, without fedorov we win 1 if were lucky? 13 years as a redwing, 3 time cup winner ,hart,Selke winner

3rd all time in playoff pts and played 100 less games than number 2's lidstrom ... 5th all time in pts as a wing

simply put he's one of the best players ever to wear a redwings jersey


I get your argument but saying he's 3rd in playoff points and played 100 games less than #2. Who is a defenseman is odd, defenseman aren't supposed to put up the kind of points lids did, that's why he was so special among other things.

But yes please retire #91 soon


#2618757 Tj oshie to washington

Posted by Euro_Twins on 02 July 2015 - 04:13 PM

Am I the only one who doesn't think oshie is that great? Brouwer is bigger puts up more goals and has a smaller cap hit.

I wouldn't trade Abby for oshie sorry.
