#2641502 What are the chances Larkin wins the Calder ?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 06 December 2015 - 10:07 PM

dylark is consistently making his case. Once Kane cools off, I think Panarin will as well. Larkin seems to be much more self-generating in terms of his offensive production rather than riding anyone's coat tails. The age difference is also going to come into play as well, I think. His plus-minus stat is becoming more and more impressive. Even though I take plus-minus with a grain of salt, his number relative to the rest of his team is quite telling, IMHO. If the Wing's offense continues to click the way it has, is Vladdy's mark of +60 from 95-96 in reach?


I dpu t it. He will still play very well but I doubt he will get over +30 I think he will finish around +25

There are 3 lies. Lies, damn lies, and stats. Even fancy stats don't tell the whole story.

As far as Jurco goes, I remember Blashill says nh Jurco needs to skate harder, not be able to skate harder. That implies an unwillingness to put forth necessary effort.


Not necessarily. If your boss said you needed to work harder, does that automatically mean you're unwilling to work harder? No it just means he expects more out of you, now you have to show him what you can do. He's just lighting a fire. Most players when in a slump or something like that will openly admit they need to work harder, it's not some public shaming.

See that's a whole different approach than stating that people are only allowed to discuss stuff if they educate themselves with this movement. I mean I've said it before I appreciate the talent some of these guys but the way they come off is very arrogant and almost Sheldon Cooper like just not as funny. For me personally watching the game and seeing who had a good game and who didn't is enough and let's be honest nobody will ever be able to understand a coaching decision because there is so much more going into it..like training sessions chemistry ...

Sad thing is Wings could have had Biggs instead of Jurco if Anaheim didn't trade with Toronto. Not that he is anything special either but at least he would have been a big 4 line guy with some third line upside.


Seriously? You constantly call anyone who mentions advanced stats math freaks who watch the game through an excel sheet, and you want people to be nice and explain things better to you? How bout you be nice and make an attempt to understand the advanced stats and ask for help instead of criticizing everything you don't understand like a 5 year old.

#2638641 If Larkin forces his way to the team , what will we look like?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 21 November 2015 - 05:26 PM

He will be wearing 17 next year. Looks cool though bro...


Ya but in 10 years people will ask you why you have 71 on the Jersey and not 17, and you can look at them and say because I became a fan of him before he wore 71


#2638616 When does Larkin get the C?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 21 November 2015 - 02:24 PM

 
Larkin is NOT the face of the franchise, get a grip. Half of hockey fans I talk to don't even know who he is yet


So? What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?


#2638274 What are the chances Larkin wins the Calder ?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 19 November 2015 - 07:22 PM

Who cares, look at the past few years in who one this thing and did they really do anything after that???  Yzerman didn't win it, Zetterberg didn't win it and look where they're at compared to who won it those years.


Are you saying if Steve or hank had won they would have fizzled out? I know that's not what you're saying but it's not like Larkin is gonna be some fly by night kid he has all the tools to be an all star for a long time. Many great players HAVE won it. But I doubt he gets it, wings players never get the same respect as the big hype players

Lol. Howard has had one bad game this year and people go nuts. Mrazek has had more bad games than Jimmy, but they'veboth been pretty Danny good and carrying the team. I'll give the guy some slack, rough night Jimmy shake it off, and come back stronger

Dude.
Make a sign.
And if you even think the cameras are looking at you, wave both hands like a mad man with broken wrists attempting jazz hands.
It'll be magic.
I promise.



I also really hope they play well too as well.


Why didn't I see this earlier?!? f***!!!!


ANYWAYS, about to cross over to the promised land (Detroit/Joe Louis arena) and I won't be able to love you all as much as you deserve, so I love all of you. Go wings! I hope I come home to butt pats! 4-1 wings. Larkin scores all of them


#2634038 What is wrong with Anaheim?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 30 October 2015 - 11:22 AM

If anyone could bring the quack back, it'd for sure be Bombay.

the flying v would be the most lethal thing that offense has seen this year, I just don't think the Triple Deke from the blueline will work in today's nhl.


It has to work, failure is not an option


#2634032 What is wrong with Anaheim?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 30 October 2015 - 11:07 AM

They're just not as mighty as they used to be.


Maybe they need a coaching change? Maybe this guy?
