#2434403 Change to goalie pads.

Posted by Euro_Twins on 29 August 2013 - 03:59 PM

Or at least make it the equivalent proportionately.

A little work on google found me this:



I didn't double check the math.



Let's account for the fact that an nhl puck is actually 7.065 square inches you have 24 feet opening to score on, which in inches is  3456 sq. inches, 7.065/3456 = .002 which is .2% of the available space to score. now assuming your soccer ball is a size 5 that would be 68-70 cm, so A = 4πr^2 (1,156 cm) = 14,527 sq cm and a soccer net opening is 222967 cm square x 7432.24 cm square = 1657144256.08 cm square. 14,527/1,657,144,256.08 = .0009, so .09%


Edit: typo, and I am dumb :)

#2434275 One player to put us over the top

Posted by Euro_Twins on 27 August 2013 - 08:54 PM

Ty Conklin!!!! 


for real though, I wouldn't mind snagging Clifford, I would send over Tootoo and a 4th/5th round pick for him. or a 3rd round pick and one of our prospects, like sheehan.


Ryan Clowe, or Yandle would be good choices too. (although I know we will never get Yandle, someone I know, has a source very close to Holland and apparently the asking price for yandle was, a 1st round pick, Mrazek, tatar/nyquist, smith and possibly someone else, I don't remember now, and Holland  basically hung up on him when he he heard that) 


I was talking about Evander Kane, so you're probably going to be MUCH more disappointed haha.  Originally I had Sammy, Mrazek, 1st, but thought that was underpayment. 


I think that was why he bolded Patrick, he was saying it would be too much to give up for Patrick kane, let alone evander. Thats how I took it at least

#2434099 Samuelsson: IR to All-Star?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 August 2013 - 09:58 PM

Sammy playing on the 4th line is just as bad as him playing bigger minutes.  He's not the type of player that should be a 4th liner.  That role is better for players with size and grit.  Holland and Babcock have no clue what a 4th line is supposed to be.  

Right, one of the best gms and coaches in the league have absolutely no clue what a 4th line should consist of. And in further news kwame is innocent

#2434085 Keep Tootoo, Drop Cleary

I think another newly acquired vet may have that potential honor locked up.

Datsyuk, Howard, kronner, all get before alfie

#2434059 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 August 2013 - 03:08 PM



My impression is that Sens fans feel their shot is just as legitimate as ours.


Something no one's talking about: he picked the Wings over the Bruins.


I miss Lids :(

#2434015 Fox Sports 1 Debuts today

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 August 2013 - 08:22 AM

Leonard Cohen should be at the top of the list followed by Ian and Sylvia.

This is getting out of hand. And the original point I was making is clearly being flushed down the toilet. Good day

#2433698 San Jose Sharks decide to use practice jerseys from now on...

Posted by Euro_Twins on 20 August 2013 - 07:56 PM

I love how everyone hates on these jerseys for being so plain... our jerseys are even more plain... take the stripe off the arm on the wings jerseys and you basically have the wings practice jerseys

#2433681 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

I'm guessing even if Alfredsson had his Wings jersey, he wouldn't wear it to a practice skate in the Sensplex with his old teammates.  That would likely be seen as rubbing everyone's nose in it. 
No matter what jersey he wore, it was going to get attention.  


He wanted to skate with his old pals, he played in Ottawa his whole career it's all he knows. It's not even training camp yet, let him skate around with his buddies, he was a senator for years, I have a shirt I still wear from a job I quit, people blow everything out of proportion sometimes. I guess it's bound to happen in the off season when there's nothing else to do

#2433261 Preds Managemant Charging Hawks Fans Double

Posted by Euro_Twins on 14 August 2013 - 11:26 AM

Looks like the Wings moved east in the nick of time.  Preds are forcing Hawks fans to buy a ticket to a non-Hawks game if they want to see the Hawks play in Nashville.  Seems to me this is going to backfire on them.  Looks like revenue sharing and Wings and Hawks fans being the only reason that team has lasted this long isn't enough for them.  It also seems to me that this is going to have a very negative effect on the local businesses as well.  
Is it me or is this a "What the hell are they thinking" move?

How will they know if you're a hawks fan or not? If you buy a preds fan ticket and wear a hawks jersey do they not let you in? Do they check to see if you wear hawks shirt under another shirt? This is just stupidity

#2433152 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

So let's see, the team has an internal cap nearly $14m below the cap ceiling & as an owner, he's said he can't afford to put any more money into the team after his casino bid was shut down.  Good luck fighting off the Leafs for the 4 spot as the Wings & Bruins battle it out for #1 in the Atlantic, Eugene.

No the Sens are better now cause they have Ryan, remember how stellar he was against us in the playoffs? Lol

#2432746 Wings Attempting to Re-sign Cleary

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 August 2013 - 11:31 AM

I like Howard, but I like Mraz more.

I like my 1 year old nephew. Doesn't mean he's ready to play with the big boys

Somebody better hurry up and grab this Game Worn Cleary from 11/12 before he re-signs and the price goes up..
starting bid: 599.99

Too bad I'm at work. I would pay a thousand for it. At ONLY 599.99 THAT'S A STEAL

#2432714 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 August 2013 - 04:41 AM

Emdog is a regular for 2 seasons now. He's our 4th line center.

Emmerton is a call up gap filler. Assuming helm is healthy he won't pass andersson or helm on the depth chart

Filppula played like garbage and cashed in.

Like t or not, flip is a well established nhl player. The bolts knew what he could provide from years past, and they had to fill a void left by lecavalier when they bought him out
