a first rounder for a second line winger seems like a lot

#2558588 Are the Wings a Contender?

I don't think I would for yandle. I'd want a righty if I was moving smith.
I also think we could acquire yandle without having to move smith or dekeyser. Just further improving our defense.

Yandle can play on the right side.

He still shots left. They don't need a d that can play the right side they need one who shoots right.

I've heard that Hall walks into bars in Edmonton and literally says "Who's gonna F*** me tonight???"
Forgot where I heard this, heard it like a year ago, but it wouldn't surprise me if it's true. He's probably the biggest star in the entire city.

I heard last time the Pens were there Crosby stood up and yelled "me! Me!"

When you see a scrub like Dubinsky crosscheck Zetterberg across the lower back with impunity after there's no call... why should our "stars" even last till the post season.  Dubinsky would have gone for stitches at best if this team had more Canadians on it...When you see Hank and Pav mailing it in and when they DO make a play guys like Tatar flub the gimme pass... you start to know the score.   

Are you suggesting that we aren't a true contender because one time Henrik Zetterberg got cross checked?

I smell troll.

#2557137 slava voynov suspended after domestic violence arrest

Posted by DickieDunn on 16 December 2014 - 07:40 PM

If he is convicted from everything I've read there's a good chance he just gets deported. Meaning his NHL days are over.


Animals aren't human dogs aren't getting a second chance after they've bitten someone so why should another animal...

Did Dany Heatly get deported / get a second chance? Why would/wouldn't Voynov then?
Give me one reason that would apply to Voynov case, but won't to Heatley's.

Heatley made a stupid mistake. Voynov made s conscious decision to beat his wife. Dee the difference?

#2556938 12/12 GDT : Panthers 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by DickieDunn on 15 December 2014 - 07:43 PM


Uh, ya, being 10 or less points from the top spot DOES mean you are near the top of the league in points. If Boston rattles off 4-5 wins in a row, they would climb right up those 10 points. My point was, last season at this time (although I do agree this year's team is MUCH better than last's) the Wings were hanging around withina nice win streak of the top of the league and how this is feeling eerily similar with a couple of important injuries happening and them giving up the SO point a lot. I am seeing the same statements here now ("at least we got a point" and "if only we got these easy points") that we all read and said last season. That's all. It's just too bad certain folks are more interested in bashing another user's comments and opinion's rather than just have a respectful discussion.

Give it up, stop trying to be k00l on the internet behind your Amiga. Dudez you are Radez, how much warez do you have?

10 points isn't close, and when it puts you outside of the playoffs it makes you even less close.

#2556839 Rank our griffins d prospects

Posted by DickieDunn on 15 December 2014 - 08:29 AM

Well I doubt he'd go anywhere else so that line isn't untrue. It says further up that he is very unhappy with the situation in Grand Rapids right now and I really wonder if there's anything to that.


He might be unhappy, but European newspaper are notoriously bad at actually reporting facts.  They basically say "we want this to happen so we're going to report it like it's actually a possibility."  It sounds more like the "___ really wants to come to Toronto" stuff we see out of the media there.

The biggest problem I have with potentially getting Yandle is he shoots left. If they make a trade for defense or needs to be a RH one that can play the PP. Of trade Dekeyser or Smith as part of the package to bring that as long as it was a guy in his prime.

#2556745 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Yandle is a premier defensemen and much better then Kronwall. We'd be adding a defensemen you can build an offense around

Yandle is not better than Kronwall. He puts up a few more points but Kronwall's defense is better by quite a bit.

#2556044 Danny DeKeyser out for weekend with upper body injury

Posted by DickieDunn on 12 December 2014 - 07:25 PM

So Lashoff is on the team only to take Kindl's spot when he's scratched it seems. 'Cause every time another dman is injured, we get Ouelett. I guess the situation is smart since is keeps the prospects playing, but Lashoff's role is almost nonexistant.

That's the way the #7 should be used when there's am NHL ready prospect in GR.

#2556043 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Posted by DickieDunn on 12 December 2014 - 07:23 PM

That's not funny. My cat was abducted by raccoons and was never the same again.

I hope they didn't use the probe.  They used the probe on me...errr...I mean...my cat?

IDK when I try to talk with him about it he gets a vacant look in his eyes and then runs away.

#2556042 Myers close to become a wing?

Posted by DickieDunn on 12 December 2014 - 07:21 PM

I would trade anyone doe the right deal. A risk isn't the right deal though, and Myers is a risk. He could turn into a stud after a trade like Chara and Pronged, or he could continue to play like a deer caught in the headlights and miss 20% of each season, or he could just settle into being a decent second pair D.

Posted by DickieDunn on 12 December 2014 - 05:06 PM

Better than dreaming about him reupping here and then be disappointed when he signs with a contender. With this strategy I can only be positive surprised as it was the case with Pasha

Are you saying that you intentionally believe unlikely things, so that when they don't happen you're happy about the surprise? 
Because it sounds like you are. 
In which case I wonder, why stop there?  You could believe a whole host of horrible (and unlikely) things and then celebrate your good luck when they don't happen.  Here's a couple...
1.  I'm going to get eaten by a shark tomorrow.
2.  Next Thursday my house will be poisoned by radon. 
3.  Racoons will abscond with my cat.
4.  This year, I really will get a lump of coal for Christmas.
5.  I'm probably already possessed by Satan (or perhaps some lesser imp). 

That's not funny. My cat was abducted by raccoons and was never the same again.

#2555127 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by DickieDunn on 09 December 2014 - 05:08 PM

I wouldn't count out Wiz just because of his comments. I doubt he would pass up an opportunity to come to a great organization that has a chance to win just because Holland low balled him 4 years ago. Right now I'd like Green just because he's proven and him being a UFA at the end of the year his price tag comes way down. Meyers could potentially not even make our lineup and he has a huge contract. I think we're going to have to wait for the deadline

Only Wiz I want is Cheese. Dude just seems like a jackass.

#2554244 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by DickieDunn on 06 December 2014 - 05:18 PM

To those recommending we can afford to trade Helm - I just don't think we will get full value for the guy. He is very underrated around the league and most teams would want a substantial add just to get the conversation going for a 2nd pairing Dman. Until they see the guy playing heart and soul bottom 6 minutes in their sweater they will only see 3rd line C for 2nd pairing dman in trade talks. 
Also any trade for a Dman has to have Kindl going the other way and right now he has negative value with his contract length. Helm and Kindl as the base for a package doesn't get you anything worth writing home about. 
I think the best course of action is to SUCK IT UP and waive Kindl and promote Ouellet. The RH shot will fix itself once a mixture of Pulkkinen, Sproul, Jensen, Marchenko get onto the team in 1-2 years time. 
Just thought I would also bring up Franzen. Does the guy have any trade value at all? He is becoming pretty redundant in Detroit right now and could probably be replaced by a combo of Jurco, Pulkkinen in the top 6. Has been fairly silent the last while and is -7 right now while playing with a mixture of Z and Dats. What do we do with this guy?

I think you're seriously underestimating how much pro scouts and GMs know about the league.

I don't see Kindl as having negative value as long as he can put up some points either. $2.4 mil isnt much of a cap hit.
