#2453550 Overtime modifications on table at GMs meeting.

Posted by BadgerBob on 14 November 2013 - 09:23 AM

Shoot outs make no sense. Baseball doesn't have a home run derby after one extra inning, you don't see a dunk contest in basketball deciding who wins. It isn't hockey, it's a skill competition.

"@AnsarKhanMLive: More line shuffling in practice. Helm and Tatar skating with top six. Cleary skating with bottom six."


Just saw this...about time they try something that makes sense!

#2451575 11/7 GDT: Stars 4 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by BadgerBob on 07 November 2013 - 12:54 PM

OMG Guys! Sammy's playing tonight! I am sooooooo freakin excited! He's gonna get a Gordie Howe HT and then wink seductively at all the ladies in the crowd! And then straddle his stick and fly around the rafters like a FRICKIN WIZARD! Sammy for president!


 Ugh. Knowing this guy is playing deflates a lot of my excitement for games.

I knew id catch some gruff for ending that way, dont get me wrong im not a fan of franzen at all but by years end he shud have atleast 40 points.

But i do believe once nyquist is up we will have 3 solid scoring lines even if franzen is traded for a dman. *fingers crossed*


Yeah. Knowing he's capable of more than that just makes it almost unbearable to watch him. I sure hope you're right about that last part!

#2451428 Nyquist taking things in stride, with class

Man...gotta feel bad for the kid.


He still gets no chance...meanwhile, our team is filled with herbs like Sammy, Cleary and Quincy.

NHL14 is good therapy for me for this. First thing I do in GM mode is get rid of these 3 and Franzen. Feels good :)

#2451323 Tootoo Waived

Posted by BadgerBob on 06 November 2013 - 12:15 PM

I'm kind of surprised it was Tootoo. Sammy next in line for this please. What could it hurt? No one takes him and we are back where we are at. Tootoo has more use than he does at this point.

#2449436 Franzen believes hes playing well.

This guy is freakin' 10 ply and makes me sick watching him. Nothing worse than wasted potential.

With the way the Wings are playing right now, the alumni showdown sounds much more appealing!

I moved this thread here because it focuses entirely on the trade value of Tootoo and describes a specific rumor.

What's interesting is that, if true, "talks went south fast." I wonder what Holland was asking for?


Probably just shot them down immediately with, "We like our team."

Screw it. Let's just tank two years in a row to get a couple of superstars like the Pens and Hawks... :paperbag3:

I would trade Quincey for John Scott plus a draft pick.  


I'd trade him for a used up clump of tape.

#2447629 Sabres' Scott offered in-person hearing.

Posted by BadgerBob on 24 October 2013 - 12:59 PM

Just get rid of this guy for good.

#2447028 Brendan Smith

Posted by BadgerBob on 22 October 2013 - 09:42 AM

I'm more upset that we wasted a first round pick on trading for Quincey. If you ask me he's the most expendable guy on D. Smith was awesome for the Badgers and hasn't even played a full 82 game season. I'd say for his experience he's doing okay. We've been pretty spoiled with our defensmen and I think our expectations for players right away are a little too high.

#2445094 Lineup Crunch: Who's going?

Posted by BadgerBob on 17 October 2013 - 08:49 AM


And with Sammy gone, possibly Bert and Alfie retiring we are going to have a lot of coin to go after someone...


Perhaps Vanek? Callahan? 

Callahan yes please!

#2444948 Lineup Crunch: Who's going?

Posted by BadgerBob on 16 October 2013 - 09:07 AM

Someone will have a tweaked something-or-other that will put them on IR until the next injury.


On a totally unrelated note, Fargo's supposed to get snow this weekend.  I like Sammy.  I need someone to run my snowblower.  Just sayin'.


Once they've sent down Luke, the only other one they can send is Lashoff, which doesn't help since he's a d-man.


I suppose the knee-jerk-think-only-of-the-moment reaction (and therefore, the LGW Way) is to trade Smith.


I wonder how long we can keep the running IR list before the league gets suspicious?


Good to hear that forecast for when I head there for some alumni lacrosse games...I'll be sure to kidnap Sammy and bring him with this weekend.
