#2625198 2015-2016 expectations

Posted by Euro_Twins on 10 September 2015 - 10:21 PM

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?

#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

Posted by Euro_Twins on 10 August 2015 - 04:07 PM

"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
