#2503777 3/30 GDT - Lightning 2 @ Red Wings 3

Do you all really thing there's some league-wide referee conspiracy against us?
I swear, some of you are one step away from wearing foil on your heads.

At this point give me the foil. Watching the refs turn a blind eye on stuff like that every game, it's seemingly a conspiracy

Steven Stamkos? Who's that?

#2503497 Is this the worst "fight" of all time?

That was selfish. He didn't bring enough beer for everyone? It was also a very lame attempt at being funny...

Great game from the kids once again, and of course the star of the show... Helm.
Howard was ok he was very close to absolutely screwing the game up but was ok overall. The point is he has to be better, Toronto is just awful right now.
Franzen was the worst Wings player in this game, lazy as phuk once again, slow as a sloth and almost cost us a few goals against. If Abdelkader is back against Tampa this bum should be taken out of the lineup.

Lol when it's monster, it's he found a way to win, it wasn't pretty but he did it. When it's Howard it's he almost absolutely screwed us over...

You gotta look at it market value wise.

If this was like previous trade deadlines it night have seemed to better. But the fact that guys like Vanek a winger and Moulson a winger went for late round draft picks really makes this center trade look bad necessary.

#2502655 Avery vs. Brodeur

Posted by Euro_Twins on 28 March 2014 - 04:52 PM

Supermodel was drunk, and obviously has no self worth. Nanny wasn't. either way brodeur shouldn't have said squat, but my disdain for Avery makes me side with Marty.

Except that it wasn't Holland at all.  Babs, Dats, and Z, wanted him back.  Holland's got a lot to be ashamed of (Tootoo, Sammy) but this one ain't on him.  Here's the quote...
"Nyquist could have made the Wings to start the season. But Holland signed 40-year-old free agent Daniel Alfredsson, and then he re-signed 34-year-old Dan Cleary in training camp. Cleary was a surprise, because he had bad knees and better offers elsewhere. But coach Mike Babcock wanted him back. The team leaders wanted him back from Howard to Zetterberg to Datsyuk. And he came back on a one-year deal worth $1.75 million, when he turned down the Wings offer of three years at $2.25 million per on July 5 and the Flyers, Florida Panthers and Winnipeg Jets were offering three years at $2.75 million per."
And here's the link...

True. Holland did offer him 3 years at $2.25/year originally though, so that's on him, don't understand why Cleary would turn that offer down though

st. Louis has a lot to play for. The last 20 years as a matter of fact. All the playoff eliminations, all the regular season dominance. How much St. Louis love to be the team that knocks us out of a playoff birth? They owe it to their city to break our streak. I hope it doesn't come to that, but it is incentive for them to play us hard.

If that is the make it or break it game, we either play the best game we've ever played, or st. Louis beats us

Makes ya sick that we let him go.

Let's actually let him show us what he can do in more than 4 games before we cry bloody murder.

He also had an absolutely horrible giveaway that lead directly to Colorado's second goal.


It's not all rainbows and puppies.



shhh... not too loud, reason and logic are null and void in some parts around here

#2501733 Weiss - who would take him next season and does he have a full NTC

Posted by Euro_Twins on 27 March 2014 - 11:19 AM

Hmmmm, never really gave the thought of Weiss playing wing...that could work out wonderfully.  BOTH Jurco and Glendening have exemptions remaining to cover next season, so much like Nyke this season, they can start the year in GR without the chance of losing them, thus opening up two roster spots up front...lets look at this:
I hate Franzen anyway, and I especially hate him on the top line.  Nyke should be there and that is where I am starting him.
Nyke - Dats - Z
Weiss - Leggy - Alfie
Fish - Tinky - Abby
Franzine - Barbie - Miller
(Andy - Ferraro - Dirty Harry)
Kronner - Big E
Smitty - UFA (Morris)
Diesel - UFA (Mitchell)
Ugh (Howard)
That's 24 players with Glenny and Jurx stating GR.  Trading Kindl (no so) Fire and Almost Almqvist for a couple of picks.  If you feel the pinch of a lower cap, then Andy can be packaged as well, or maybe sign bit cheaper D-man instead of one of Mitchell or Morris. Unless you'd want to roll the dice on Marchenko and only sign Morris.
I know this is a Weiss thread, and I really didn't mean to respond with a roster of possible next season ufa's, but the idea of Weiss playing wing lead me to where I may be able to put others...sorry.

Franzen on the fourth line is ridiculous, I understand your disdain with him, but he is still valuable in the top 6, good for 25-30 goals. When your team lacks offense you don't cut the ice time of one of the few guys who can score.

#2500745 % chance of making the playoffs

And my chances of joyful crying as opposed to anguished crying raise by 77%.

And there's an 84.7% chance of butt pats, followed by a 23% chance of the drunk tank

Well as bad as our PP has been for about three years now I think Babs just puts the units together at random. 
Babs:  "Ok, first unit is going to be Kronwall, Ericsson, Lashoff, Gustavsson, Mrazek"
Tatar:  "Coach those guys are all defensemen and goalies..."
Alfie:  "Seriously, at least two of them aren't even in the lineup right now..."
Babs:  "That's why you've got to compete..."
Alfie:  "What does that even..."
(Short handed goal)

Lmao thanks for the laugh kip, that was hysterical

#2500722 Backes on playing against Malkin and Crosby

Posted by Euro_Twins on 25 March 2014 - 03:14 PM

I'd be easily willing to pay him north of 6.5 for 7 years he is that kind of a beast. Heck Backes even overpowers some other pwfs with his sheer strength he. Get him as a top 6 guy add Orr and Gazdic to our fourth line and that lineup becomes a pain in the ass to play against

I'm sure Datsyuk would LOVE having backes on his wing, could you imagine? I'm gonna go drool for a while, see us in a bit
