#2679318 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

Posted by DickieDunn on 25 June 2016 - 01:39 AM

The second rounder alone almost makes it worthwhile to move down 4 spots, getting rid of Datsyuk's cap hit makes it a steal.

Put Lucic in the winged wheel and he's still a piece of s***

Same can be said about a lot of guys who played in Detroit

Your argument is tautological. You think the data is "inaccurate" because it doesn't comport with what you see, and you trust what you see because the data is supposedly inaccurate.

Or, in other words, Tatar isn't a good possession player because I don't see it. And I dont see it because i dont believe possession stats. And round and round we go

The same thing can be said of you. "What I see is irrelevant because stats never lie."

I don't really care about the lefty righty thing either. We have enough righties to make balanced pairs now with Green, Marchenko, and maybe Sproul.

I wouldn't trade Tatar thought. I want a team based on possession and he's been one of the best possession forwards in the NHL for the last two years.

Stats saying Tatar is one of the best forwards for that tells you how much stars can be off. He skates around refusing to pads then tries to skate through 3 defenders and either gets a weak shot or gives it up

It's also called the Detroit media. It's always, always, always, always the same line. "Ken Holland is trying to find a deal that makes sense for the organization, but every GM wants our top young talent. So his hands are tied. So you can't get mad at him. Being a GM is really hard. Sometimes the best trade is the one you don't make. Ken Holland has a hottt bod and dreamy eyes."

Holland used to know that most prospects don't pan out so it's OK to trade them. He's forgotten that.

You guys do realize there are bars, hookers, and often casinos in other NHL cities, right?

No to Vanek, Brown and any of those guys. Vanek has 1! advantage he can score dirty goals the problem is he doesn't work for it and is easy to box out of the crease

Brown looks totally out of shape and doesn't hit as hard as he used to so no thanks. Also Vanek has 2 years and 13 million left no thanks.

Offer sheet trouba with a massive signing bonus and then extend him for 8x8..doubt Winnipeg would match.

Because that's a terrible contract

Vegas Cash Grab.

Either every seat will be sold and less than half used, or less than half will be sold at all. Large portion of the permanent population works nights and/or has better things to spend money on. Horrible idea.


#2677565 Datsyuk - someone who works for JLA told me he's sold his house

Posted by DickieDunn on 12 June 2016 - 10:04 PM

 
Again nothing personal against him but the guy IS from the NBA. So I'm sure he is an expert in the NBA business side of things, a smart guy and what not but that doesn't translate to the NHL. It would be the same vise versa what does an NHL business type know about the NBA? Nothing. You have to understand hockey, how it works to be good at the business side of it. I mean you can't work for let's say Apple without knowing what a MBP is and how it works.
 
If you want to bring in someone who can increase the "bottom line" it should have been  a hockey name like #99.

I doubt there's that much difference.


#2677423 Biggest need for Red Wings in Off-season Poll

Posted by DickieDunn on 10 June 2016 - 10:19 PM

New coach? Seriously? I'd definitely give Blashill another season to see if he can evolve and learn from last season...

Seriously. Blashill seems to want to be Babcock Jr. and it doesn't work.


#2677422 Gordie Howe has passed away. 1928-2016.

Posted by DickieDunn on 10 June 2016 - 10:16 PM

Best player ever. Gretzky scored more, but Howe could do it all and didn't have the benefit of playing in the 80s when it seemed lime half the league couId score 30 or 40 goals a year.
