#2676539 16/17 offseason

Posted by kickazz on 25 May 2016 - 08:07 PM

2009-2012 Abby played center on and off. He was a pretty damn good faceoff guy (around 53%). Much better than Sheahan is. 

 

Filpula became Zetterberg's linemate on second line sometime between 2010-2012, but primarily in the 2011/12 seasons. 

 

I don't think Abby would be a good top 6 centerman. Being is top 6 centerman is nothing like being a bottom 6 centerman.

 

My first choice for centering 3rd line would be Darren Helm followed by Abby. But neither will happen. 

 

Ideally next season I'd like to see Larkin/AA get some 1st and 2nd line centering duties. I think Zetterberg is much more useful on the Wing if he's to stay top 6. And I think Abby would be a good winger up there as well. 

 

If Z stays first line center then hopefully Larkin gets 2C and AA gets 3C (he could share 3C duties with Sheahan).

I really dislike Seinfeld. Have never found it the least bit funny, nor entertaining. A show about nothing (which I know is the idea) and that's about how much appeal it has to me.

Iphone, Ipods, Ipads, Itoilets, Ishoes suck.

 

Wife buys Ipad.  Of course she does.  But then she is a Devils fan.  Can't help some people.

Chocolate ice cream is terrible.

I'm 23-years-old... I'd rather play a board game then get hammered. I haven't had more than one drink in a day since the day I turned 21.  I think driving tipsy is the same as driving drunk and I have no problem calling the police on you.  It's not snitching, it's potentially saving a life from your selfish a**.




#2682247 For the Kenny apologists, what Holland move would change your stance o

Posted by NerveDamage on 05 July 2016 - 10:45 AM

Im talking about what move Kenny would have to make for his supporters to finally turn on him.

is there such thing as a Holland apologist? I mean there are a lot of sky's falling gloomers...but I think most of us are critical of him and few are constructive about it.


If this happened Holland would be in deep crap with the ASPCA first for bagging all of those pugs and secondly for using them as a weapon.... the poor pugs. For the love of God think of the pugs!!!

#2681629 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 July 2016 - 03:10 PM

Who isn't happy on here? I think for the most part everyone is saying its fine for the 1 year...A real low risk signing..

So you want to go personal now? We can if you want.



Didn't want him but of course the Wings sign him at the plus side it's only for 1 year so if it doesn't work out they can just let him walk.

so much for becoming heavier and tougher to play against lol


So the talk of getting "tougher" and "harder to play against" was just to get me through the week?


Meh, not super excited but not unhappy about it, and I did tease about pre-ordering your Vanek jerseys a couple of days ago, so there. Can I read Holland or what.


Honestly. 2,6 millions one year is okay...but Vanek is done unless he agrees to finally compete. He was terrible recently. Slow turnover machine. I think this is mainly to help our powerplay as Vanek still has his excellent hands.

Holland hasn't done the best job. Miller contract was useless and Helm is overpaid for what he can do (I don't care if he would have gotten more money as a free agent). But I also can't agree with people blaming Holland for not landing some of the players like Lucic, Okposo or Eriksson. It's upto the players whether they want to be here or not. Detroit is not UFA destination it used to be and we have to realize that.

 

Some people revert into their former high school logic and start blaming Holland for literally every single thing. No one can take you seriously if you can't differentiate between an instance when Holland really IS at fault and when he ISN'T. 

 

So far I'm frowning at Holland for the Helm/Miller deals but giving a slow golf clap for the Vanek deal and a nod for Nielsen with a questioning look about the length of term. We can only truly know if these things pan out once the season is underway.

OH I wasn't saying he wasn't still playing with coloring books, I was piggybacking on his comment, the age difference is pretty damn crazy, ha.

I worded that wrong, it came off as speaking in a "as a matter of fact" tone when I was just in awe of the generation gap.


Haha, it's all good! Just had to make sure. In any case, that is actually pretty nuts now that I think about it. Early/mid-2000s still doesn't feel so long ago to me.

For what we're paying him, and for the role he's played this year, he's been pretty damn decent. He's scored some clutch goals.

And green has been damn good this year. His point total may not be where it had been in years past, but he's also been A LOT better defensively than he was ever billed as. He's made some fairly big mistakes, but I've been impressed by both of them at times. Good ufa signings.

 

Ya never got the hate for Richards. He's been great for what he's payed for sure. As the playoffs go on, he'll prove even more valuable I think.
