#2429884 Ilya Kovalchuk announces retirement

Posted by Euro_Twins on 13 July 2013 - 10:12 AM

Plus he is by his family. And you can't put a price on that.


Sure you can. 75 million over 5 years would have done it

I'm still here. I still don't like the Alfredsson signing and believe that having Brunner over him would be good for now and the future. 1 year is not my idea of a good use of 3.5 mil with 5.5 mil incentives.


3.5 mil with 2 mil in incentives

I meant that Brunner is not a suitable replacement for Kovalchuk.


If there is one available I think we would love to have him


#2429408 Smith files for arbitration

Pretty sure we never had anything to worry about in that department lol


Ya cause no teams want or need a young defenseman with a lot offensive potential. Oh sorry that's right he wasnt a superstar in his rookie year, I forgot. That automatically makes him terrible and we should forget he ever existed...

#2429017 Holland on SiriusXM w/ audio link

Posted by Euro_Twins on 09 July 2013 - 01:38 PM

2 guys out of 720 NHL players?

 

Didn't someone already refute this idea with the stats and the lead in hits and things was minimal from the east over the west. 

 

How well did Lucic/Chara work against the Hawks?

 

 

I know I compared the top hundred players hits stats and posted them. difference was like 1.5 hits/team/game for the east over a full season




#2428889 So.. what are our expectations for this roster?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 08 July 2013 - 09:19 PM

On paper I could agree. But not on ice.


Pitts nyr Boston mtl Washington. I believe are the tops 5 then were in the next group that can barely make it or barely miss. Which includes us, Ottawa, Columbus, tor, islanders philly. Then two teams I'm not sure of are Tampa and njd.

This is if if we have some key injuries which I fully expect. Also monster being injury prone is key....Howard can't start 82 games and mrazek isn't ready.

 

I agree with Mrazek not being ready, but you have no proof that monster will be injured all year, or at all for that matter, most injuries this year was for a lack of half a season with no time for training camps, and a week long pre-season. Washington is garbage when Ovie isn't playing full tilt, which aside from 24 games last season he hasn't played that way in several years, so they are like a 6th seed maybe, they only had home ice cause they had the worst division in hockey. I do not truly believe NYR will be better with Vigneault than they were with Torts. Montreal is hit or miss really, Boston has fallen apart this off season, so lets see how they bounce back after losing key pieces of their team, and Pittsburgh is just a joke, they are good regular season, but come playoffs they are the laughing stock of the nhl. I honestly don't think there are 3 teams truly better than us, assuming half our team doesn't get injured (we can't possibly have that much bad luck 4 straight years) then I firmly believe we will start playoffs with home ice, and make a deep playoff run. With Alfie, and weiss joining Datsyuk, Z, Franzen, Nyquist and Tatar, and Helmer, we are in for a treat this year, cause we aren't trying to make playoffs this year, we are trying to win it all.




#2428836 Question about Buying out Samuelsson

Posted by Euro_Twins on 08 July 2013 - 03:50 PM

 

It is ok, you don't have to pretend your friend isn't Holland!

 

LOL!!!

 

Just kidding!

 

Lmao, I wish, if it was everytime he thought of re-signing cleary I would give him a whack in the back of the head to wake him up




#2428757 is anyone happy right now?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 08 July 2013 - 10:32 AM

Is it me or does it seem that everyone in our division/conference next season has made the most noise this off season?
 
Something to think about


Bostons roster has crumbled, and most other teams have just filled holes that opened this off season I.e. Tampa picking up flip. I believe us to be the best team in our division, but we will see. I like our off season moves. Still wish we 're signed Brunner but we will be ok


#2428690 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 July 2013 - 11:51 PM

Ok. I will explain:

Alfredsson is signed, making Brunner expendable.

You dont need to be a rocket scientist or even a sesquipedalian to understand why Brunner is now expendable. It's quite an easy concept.

 

right that is what I meant by explain... again saying the same things you keep saying. How is someone who is a righty and loves to shoot and can score truly expendable, even on the third line he is awesome. You can't tell me guys like Miller or Eaves, or even Tootoo are less expendable than him. For a team in need of scoring, getting rid of a potential 20-30 goal scorer is a bit ridiculous




#2428539 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 July 2013 - 02:42 PM

Brunner is expendable. We dont need him. It would be nice to have him, but we dont have room.


You keep saying the same thing over and over, we get it you're not his biggest fan. But you are not responding with anything of value. You just say Brunner is expendable after a long analysis of why he isn't a proper response would give reasons why you think he is expendable. Otherwise your comments are completely and utterly useless


#2428247 Wings Attempting to Re-sign Cleary

Posted by Euro_Twins on 06 July 2013 - 09:35 PM

Common misconception, but that was a different voth playerin.

Edit: in fact I think it was actually Danny Cleary, not to be confused with Dan Cleary. Neither of whom should be confused with Daniel Cleary.


So not voth flugenstein?

Probably cause he offered him 1 year, 2 million. Give him 2.5 per for 3 years. That'll get him, and he'll be well worth every cent.


Kenny offered him 2 and 3 year contracts before noon today

 Flash him your ****.  Be sure to put the Winged Wheel on each of them first.

I'll even chip in for one boob's worth of tattoo if he re-signs because of you.  (To prove that it was because of you, he must specifically mention the tats.)

 

Oh.  Sorry.  Didn't realize we can't say ****.  Ok.  Flash him your ta-tas.

 

I will paint them on if you don't want to pay for tats/want them permanently ;)




#2426185 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by Euro_Twins on 04 July 2013 - 09:02 PM

:lol: seems like it, huh?

But if anyone's wondering, The Heat was effing hilarious.

Edit: fwiw, from Kukla's Korner:


"The Wings do have offers out to all of their own three UFAs Valtteri Filppula, Daniel Cleary and Damien Brunner but all three are expected to cross into the free market Friday. Filppula is out of the picture for the Wings, anyway, because he believes himself to be a No. 1 center. Cleary is looking for a three-year contract around $3 million per season, and he has garnered interest from almost a dozen other teams. The Wings remain hopeful of working out a deal because Cleary rebounded from a slow start to have a great playoff stretch, he brings leadership and hes beloved by coach Mike Babcock. Likewise, Brunners camp has been contacted by several suitors, but the Wings remain hopeful of retaining his services, too."


Lol flip is barely a number two center but he thinks he's a number one? Lol I'm on my phone or else I would post the rolling around laughing guy. Bye flip, I like you but apparently you're head is so far up your own keester that you can't see past your own dilisuional thoughts
