Gotta give Ozzie credit for wading in there... he's lots smaller than Wahhhh and besides that, he's not insane.   Brave Ozzie!!!
 
Wings got this one... no way the current Avs pretenders take this one in our barn.  LGRW!!


For sure, Ozzie held his own. Then again Vernon was even smaller and hit him straight lol

If Mrazek keeps up and can narrow the "wins" between him and Holtby (as Kliq suggested to me) he will likely win Vezina.

Nyquist burned him pretty good in the first period and was in all alone but wasn't able to beat Andersson. That would have blown up all over Twitter for sure had he scored.

And here is the link of the said burn -

Anyways - that's one of the reasons I was against the whole Wings - Phaneuf trade. He's not that good and his salary sucks for it. But I think being a Senator will do him some good. Least he doesn't have to deal with Toronto fans anymore.

Not going to lie I'm realy impressed they got rid of Phaneuf without retaining any salary and they did it within the conference.

Wins are always slow nights man. Losses are when the divas come out.

Pavel said "Henrik you give me the puck and the more we win, the longer we stay together" - according to Ken Daniels. Hah!

I loved that video. Don't often get to see players before they become famous.

I don't think it's embarassing at all and I don't look at Larkin any differently lol. Then again, I'm the type that embarces my sillyness from my past.

No rentals unless guaranteed to sign. It's not like we're Florida who are comfortably winning games - a team like that should probably be going for rentals.

You always say future. You take care of the future, and the future will take care of the present. That's how it works in the salary cap era.

 

Edit: On the topic of trades, you always have to ask yourself "Why isn't any other team doing the trade that I'm doing?" If you are the team who is getting a big-name player in a trade, that means you paid more for that player than any other team in the league was willing to pay. With that in mind, how confident are you that the move is right for your team?

 

I know we all want the Wings to win the Cup every year, but I'm glad that we build through the draft and are cautious in signing players from the outside. It's a recipe for success that doesn't mortgage the future for the sake at a slightly better shot now. That's why the streak matters.

That's fine but we've been saying future future future and kept getting progressively worse as a team every year. And that's my point. Years ago our "future" was Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco, Pulkinen. Well believe it or not those guys are in the NHL now. And of those 5; 1 is scratched, 1 has mostly been scratched, 1 centered the 4th line today and was demoted because of AA. And 2 that are in their supposed prime are being outscored by Larkin - 19 year old. 

 

You can have all the shiny new parts to a car but you won't be able to build anything out of it unless you have the correct parts. We have way too many small players. Needs have to be addressed. It's about getting better as a team and having a complete package. I think AA, Larkin are good pieces to hang on to. But I don't see how we can have 3 of Nyquist, Tatar, and Pulkinnen who are literally some of the smallest players in the league. 

 

So either tankit and do the future the right way instead of the bs way or rebuild on the fly. If you're rebuilding on the fly then do it correctly. We're one or two important pieces away from being a cup contender.
