How can you hate the Drake? Everyone loves the Drake. It's those quiet talkers you have to watch out for.


High talkers, low talkers, close talkers. It's the re-gifters that you really need to watch out for!

Half the teams in this league wish they had Howard *perspective*


I know Chicago fans that would rather have Howard. Not kidding

Some people are saying andersson is better than disney.com. That is nonsense. Andersson can't shut down top lines and frustrate an entire team the way disney.com does, to me he is worth keeping on the fourth line just because he aggravates people. 4th liners shouldn't be expected to go out and score a bunch of goals. It's a checking line for a reason. He works hard, plays gritty and throws people off their game.

The only real playoff success the Wings had since 2009 was when Howard had his only good playoffs, two years ago.
 
When he's been, pardon the word "average", this team has been nothing special in the playoffs.  We don't have enough firepower or talent to succeed without a hot goalie.  I hope he steps up this season.   


Even the best goalie in the league can't win a cup for you without firepower.

They should probably pick the name based on the most likely Canadian market the team will move to after being a financial disaster for years. 


The las Vegas maple leafs

I edit my original statement. I don't want to gossip like that. I think the trainers guard may have been down because we were mostly discussing his Ice Bucket Challenge and my ALS.

If you edit my quote out of your post, I'll put up a vid of the trainer I was talking to working the Wings. :-)


Because you asked so nicely I deleted it.

If the arena is on the strip, they can call themselves The Las Vegas Strippers.

Although that might get a little confusing with guys looking for a good time, but instead ending up at Vegas hockey game.


Good g r business though.

Hey you wanna go see the las Vegas strippers?

Hel Ya!!

Wait what the he'll is this?

We would need to change our name to the Detroit tire kickers


We wouldn't have to change the logo, just put a foot next to it in a kicking motion.

Las Vegas Hangovers


Ya but then they won't remember what happened and they will have to waste a whole day looking for their goalie that's stuck in the elevator


#2535024 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

There you have it: six feet from the horse's mouth.


I decline to comment. What is being said is not confirmed nor can it be identified as the absolute truth, it's also unreasonable to assume it is false, we will evaluate where we are when the time becomes appropriate and adjust accordingly. The main concern has and always will be the growth and financial health of the nhl, therefore we cannot and will not comment at this time.

#2534893 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 August 2014 - 03:08 PM

You need good scouting and proper development in order to get value from your draft picks, as well as a solid plan (looking at you, Oilers), but a high percentage of the elite players come from the top half of the first round.  Last year's top 8 scorers were first round picks, 3 first overall, a 2nd, a 5th, then 19th, 22nd, and 28th.  Looking at the top 30 scorers, only 6 were taken outside of the first round, and 18 of the 30 were top 10 picks.  Looking at defensemen by TOI/gm, 12 of the top 30 were first rounders, and 7 were taken in the second.  Given that 18 year old defensemen are harder to project, that makes sense, but it still shows that you're far more likely to get a #1 defenseman in the first round than you are in any other round.

 
They didn't.  Yzerman and Fedorov were better players.


Ya, two of the best players in the league aren't comparable to two of the best players of the league. They were in a much higher scoring league then the one z and d grew up in, no one will ever rack up the points those guys did anymore. But we replaced them with some "possible top 6 complimentary pieces"


#2534891 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 August 2014 - 02:57 PM

Talk about overhype ...Nyquist could turn into a star but it's also possible him only becoming a top 6 contributor and for me that's good enough.neither Nyquist nor Tatar will turn into Z or Pasha.It's funny reading how the team keeps winning although the best they've done is barely making the playoffs and not even sniffing at the third round dice almost 6 years.The sabers will have a very dangerous team in a few years and the isles where held back by an incompetent management and a penny pinching owner.The reality is also really simple the Holland will need some homerun drafts and prepare the Wings much better for the post Z and Pasha era, than he did with the post Lidas one.


I remember when z and d would never turn into Stevie and feds...
