#2477174 Turning point!?!?!

Posted by MasterPavel on 25 January 2014 - 09:03 PM

Make the playoffs and then ice the best lineup possible.  I personally believe that with a 2nd line of Jurco-Sheahan-Tatar, we can win a Cup as long as the bottom 6 has no Cleary, Tuzzi, Sammy.any of those guys.  Come playoffs, I don't care if Weiss is our 4th line C, put him there if other guys are playing their way up.

I think we will see a different Weiss when he comes back.

#2477021 So when would you make a move and what type?

Posted by MasterPavel on 25 January 2014 - 09:28 AM

Weber's hit isn't 14, it's 7.87. I'd take him in a second for that. Mantha, Jurco, Nyquist, or Tatar+Kindl+D prospect. A top 4 of Kronwall, Weber, Ericsson, and Dekeyser would be one of, I'd not the best, d units in the NHL.

Mantha, Jurco, Nyquist for Weber would castrate our offense in the future. Plus how would you fit it under the cap? They would have to take an overpaid vet as well to offset the hit for this year. I don't see us as a player for Weber if he is available. Now a stay at home dman, and a center like O'Reilly would be interesting...

He will be with the griffs next year along with Mantha.

I hope Big E, Bert, or Smitty runs that dirtbag the first opportunity on Sunday.

#2459067 Shea Weber leaves game with Injury

I never wish something like this upon any person. I hope nothing serious or long term comes of this. That being said, I still haven't forgave him over the way he slammed Z's face into the boards.

Jimmy should try to stay in the crease since that is where the goal is. Here is to 5 more years!

#2430099 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by MasterPavel on 14 July 2013 - 10:12 PM

A Lannister always pays his debts.

Then I'll take your bet Joffrey...

#2430064 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by MasterPavel on 14 July 2013 - 06:44 PM

HUGE MISTAKE BY HOLLAND. Brunner will score more goals than Tatar, Helm, Nyquest, Anderson COMBINED. I'll bet anyone $20. Pay him 4 million a season if that's what it takes.

You seem like a degenerate gambler. I would take you up on this bet, but you're probably also the type that doesn't pay your debts...

#2428517 Free Agent Signings

Posted by MasterPavel on 07 July 2013 - 01:48 PM

In all fairness the guy was on the Florida panthers....I don't wake up and just look forward to watching some panther hockey! Lol

How about, "in all fairness", at least watch a highlight video before commenting on a player. Especially if you're going to imply he is a "nobody", because some guy hasn't heard of Weiss. He has the time to complain about Holland's acquisitions in every thread, but not enough to watch TSN/NHL network to form an actual opinion. He is obviously apart of your Insane Troll Posse... Tell Centcouger I said hi...

#2426927 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Posted by MasterPavel on 05 July 2013 - 01:11 PM

Right but Abby was on pace for 6 assists, well behind Alfie who was on pace for 32!
Alfie is not one dimensional, he will play very good defense, will go to the net, will set up other players as well.
And that was with Abby playing minutes with Datsyuk, remember Corey Perry giving Abby crap about his totals while playing with Dats?
You think Abby should be playing 1st line minutes over Alfie? Really?
Doesn't really matter as they will probably be on the same line as Alfie is RW and Abby is LW.

I believe it was Shane Doan giving Abby crap. Could be wrong tho...

#2426492 Red Wings select RW Anthony Mantha 20th Overall

Posted by MasterPavel on 05 July 2013 - 10:49 AM

Yeah, I'll go with the red wing scouts on there drafting abilities vs. wannabe scouts at any network. They should have earned the ability to make unpopular picks without scrutiny. Funny how he backslides "worst draft in 10 years, blah blah blah. But we will see how they develop." In 5 years he will be singing the praises of our prospects. We have all watched this movie before....

#2424386 Red Wings select RW Anthony Mantha 20th Overall

Posted by MasterPavel on 01 July 2013 - 10:37 AM

The scouts might say he has a questionable work ethic, but I guarantee Babcock can get the most effort out of this kid.  Even in his interviews he doesn't seem like the same type of personality as Franzen so I won't judge the guy until he plays some games in the AHL and NHL.

Exactly, a lot of top young prospects that are use to dominating get bored. It's different for a 17-18 year old who probably hasn't lived with his parents for at least a year, life revolves around a sport, and doesn't have social stability. Then these writers wonder why some kids lose focus. That's just my professional opinion...
