#2625999 Howard/Mrazek/Paterson new pad setups

Posted by Euro_Twins on 18 September 2015 - 06:16 PM

They all look pretty good, clean and uncluttered.
I dig it.


Big upgrade from these

#2625971 Kane case headed to grand jury

Posted by Euro_Twins on 18 September 2015 - 02:27 PM

Speak for yourself. If this was Pavel Datsyuk instead of Patrick Kane, I would be heartbroken if the Wings handled it this way and would tap out until it was made right. I can't control what other fans would do.


Pavel would never do such a thing. But I agree with what you said nonetheless

I like mrazek's pads the best


#2625198 2015-2016 expectations

The one that left.
 
I hope we keep the 1-3-1 configuration that really seemed to work. Last year it was with 1 defenceman, but it will be interesting to see what they do this year. Kronwall and Green will obviously each be on one of the PP units, but I also liked what DD was doing last year and I think there was take by Blashill of giving Smith some PP time. I guess 2 of those guys could play on the wall. Too many candidates is always a good problem.


Green on the wall could be deadly


#2625075 Free agents this off season

Posted by Euro_Twins on 10 September 2015 - 05:42 AM

wow that's a bargain thought he would get at least 4 million. Him not accepting the Leafs deal of 4,75 for 5 years could turn out to be a costly mistake.

Surprised wings couldn't beat that offer he would have been a nice second pairing guy with some much needed physicality.

Sabres are improving quickly


The wings may have made an offer and it was rejected. Either way we signed two dmen this off-season. We can't sign everyone

Abby will definitely re-sign with the wings. No chance he doesn't

If there is a meet up, it would be cool if no one said who they actually were.  That way, everyone would have to guess who everyone else actually was.  


Do you think if I wear a fedorov Jersey people will think I'm him? Maybe bos will buy me drinks all night because I'm fedorov and I'm irresistible

You don't have to beg. I'd have given them to you anyway.

*pats butt*


Woohoo. Off-season butt pats!!


#2624130 Moving Jimmy Howard

Posted by Euro_Twins on 29 August 2015 - 06:09 PM

 
$8 million for both would'nt be too bad. Dallas has $10.5 million tied up in Lehtonen and Niemi for the next three years. 



Tampa almost $7.4/million, rags have almost $9.25 million, Calgary has $8.3 million, Washington has $7.1million, Vancouver has $7.5, Columbus has $8.2million, Minnesota currently has like $10million, Colorado has $7.35million, Nashville has $7.75 million

Honourable mention, rask is the only goalie on Bruins roster currently so they have at least his $7million cap hit

There was at least three or four teams I left off the list with *only* $7million


#2624051 Moving Jimmy Howard

Posted by Euro_Twins on 28 August 2015 - 10:17 PM

 
McCollum is OK, but i'd just be leery of having two rookies in goal for a full season. Better to ease one in along with a veteran. Howard had Osgood to mentor him for a couple seasons, now Mrazek has Howard to do the same. 


Mrazek isn't a rookie anymore


#2624050 Dan Cleary re-signing still possible?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 28 August 2015 - 10:16 PM

 LOLLLL Ridiculous. Wonder what kinda dirt Cleary has on Kenny?


There's no reference even sited in any of these clickbait articles, they are trying to drum up site hits when it's slow


#2624015 Wings hire Bryan Campbell as Director of Statistical Analysis

Posted by Euro_Twins on 28 August 2015 - 03:41 PM

Negative. Of course, you can. Not letteraly though, but math can definitely help doing that.


I wish this site had a sarcasm button. I like the analytical part of the game too, I may not always fully understand it but I do think it is a very useful tool

One has to wonder why it took so long?  Why didn't we have a guy like this before now?  Holland's usually ahead of the curve.  My knee jerk reaction is to assume that Babcock didn't care about it.  But I don't know, and can't substantiate that at all.  Just seems like the same old timey mentality that made him "not care about shootouts" might also apply here. 


I'm pretty sure that's inaccurate, at least a bit. Babs was very happy last summer when we got an analytics guy, so much so he let him do quite a bit and eventually took him go to Toronto with him. Guy even got to pick our shootout guys too


#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?
