#2521124 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Euro_Twins on 19 May 2014 - 09:12 AM

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


#2520992 ECF : (5) New York Rangers vs. (4) Les Canadiens de Montréal

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


#2520903 2014 Memorial Cup

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


#2520806 2014 Memorial Cup

Posted by Euro_Twins on 16 May 2014 - 11:06 AM

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.?


#2520758 Blashill named AHL Coach of the Year

Posted by Euro_Twins on 16 May 2014 - 08:40 AM

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?


#2520177 Will Mantha join GR after the QMJHL playoffs?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 12 May 2014 - 10:01 PM

The rule that you're talking about is for NHL players joining the AHL. In their case they have to be on the AHL roster on the day of the NHL trade deadline.
 
You'll see a bunch of teams making paper transactions at the deadline to make age and contract eligible players available for the AHL teams should the parent NHL franchise be eliminated.
 
There is no such rule (from what I can find) that applies to major junior players joining the AHL when their CHL season is over. Based on the transfer agreement they seem to be perfectly eligible to play.

This is exactly the truth. People keep ignoring the various posts explaining this exact thing and saying he can't play cause he wasn't in the ahl. It's not true though.

I hope the rags can complete the comeback, I love it when Pittsburgh implodes


#2519987 Now some gritty forwards.

Posted by Euro_Twins on 10 May 2014 - 09:57 PM

To bad for us, Maroon is becoming very expensive. He is having an awesome playoffs....





#2519944 Wings have the #1 & #2 most overpaid players (per point) in the NH

Not true.  He's really good at "an integral part of the game", as fight fans will tell you ad nauseam.


I'm a fan of enforcers and even I'll say it, he sucks at hockey. We've had plenty of our own enforcers over the years, bit they could also chip in offensively from time to time.


#2519904 Abby named Captain of the Men's US World Championship team

I would thank him. One is real life the other is hockey, two totally different things. 


Hockey. Is. Life.
