#2537710 9/29 Exhibition GDT : Maple Leafs 0 at Red Wings 3

He's like a bad aftertaste. It's not immediately apparent what he does to a team but he does ... ruin the flava

 
Yeah, I edited out my comment that Oulette looked like a total AHL'er because I didn't want to upset anybody. He doesn't seem ready and he doesn't seem good. I feel similarly, but less strongly towards Sproul. Marchenko looks calm and experienced.
 
Also I see a big difference between guys like Andersson and Porter/Nosek/Netrasil. Andersson looks like a NHL'er and the other three don't. While Andersson isn't the best NHL player ever maybe it goes to show he's arrived?

I definitely tjink hes good, really good, hes just made a few bad plays, and whwn pressured he seems jumpy.
He hasn't looked horrible though, he's physical and made his share of good plays that pass that lead to the breakaway was awful, but hell get it.

Im kind of thinking Jensen sproul and marchenko look so good because were not used to seeing right handers on that side of the ice, so compared to what were used to seeing it looks easier because it is.
Ha.

Jensen is just looking flat out good though.

Always old school xym, always.
And Jensen just looks smooth.

They keep saying how oulettes our most nhl ready defenseman but the mistakes he's made are the type that would make me worry about him against all NHL competition.

I know the learning curve for d is steep, but Jensen and marchenko look a lot calmer, but I could just be noticing them more because the right handed shots.

Smith looks like a different player, I mean i still expect him to make a few boneheaded plays every now and then, but I don't cringe every time he has the puck in our own end.

On the earlier pk, he skated the puck out himself with two guys chasing when there was no clear outlet pass, and as soon as he got into traffic he shot it down.

Callahan looks a lot better than I expected him to, but for the most part hes out there against ahlers.
And Jesus mrazek.
That little behind the back of the boards bank perfectly on the D's stick.
I want him in net just because he relieves some of the pressure on our d from the forecheck.

If jimmy keeps struggling, Mrazek looks like he could be the guy now.
The kid is effin smooth, and that pass to center ice reminded me a bit of the way Brodeur used to slide up the ice and push the play.

We need to get more physical


Lemme hear them bodies talk.

Its on fsd.
I'm honestly super excited for this game...
We get to watch the reunited kid line, see how well Weiss is coming along, we get to see the nose line which by all reports has been doing well, we get to see Callahan probably in a larger role, plus we get to see how cleary knees are doing..
Not to mention mrazek is starting and playing two full periods.
Even if we get messed up, that's a lot of regulars for the leafs and our best line is generally going to be our third line(hopefully).

I'm just excited hockeys back and being televised again...


#2536697 Has hakan Andersson done it again ?

Way too early to tell, but they took a bunch of guys late that have good size and skill down the middle, hopefully they pan out.


#2536644 Compliance buyout expected to be used on Tootoo

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 20 September 2014 - 08:51 AM

I feel worse cheering for the devils now that Martys roaming around as a free agent, but tootoos too damn endearing not to stick somewhere.
I hope for nothing but the best for him, and hope he plays it classy when he plays us, just so I can keep rooting for him.

He didnt b**CH and moan about going to gr, and didn't act all high and mighty once he was there...
That video of him giving his stick to that kid made me respect him a lot more...

This whole things makes me proud of the internet and viral videos, which I didn't believe was possible before this.

Your mothers awesome t, I haven't been a member here long enough to have known of the situation until now, but I hope you're doing well.

Why not ask her?


#2527416 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 30 June 2014 - 09:20 PM

I have completely soured on Niskanen. He does not deserve anything close to the term and hit he's probably going to get. He's second pairing. Rather have Boyle on a short deal or let the kids play.

I really hope he signs with us, but for one-two years to show he deserves the big money.

I know it won't happen, but I'd respect him more if hewas willing to bet on himself.


#2526792 Kesler traded to Anaheim

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 29 June 2014 - 01:19 AM

@gcom007
Im almost 100% positive he's aware how fast he lost 3/4 d men, and you're not giving him his due.
id take Ericsson over Stuart any day.
I'd take dd now over the last two years of rafalski.

He filled from within, which would've gotten praise had he landed an elite defender, unfortunately he couldnt pull it off.

And that's not being negative, its realistic.
Prospects don't always turn out like you thought, but I kind of believe those players have already played the way off the team, they went bad instead of turning overripe.

And Holland signed players.for depth.
It sucks those depth players were bert, and Cleary and it was unfortunate that nyq had to sit out to start, but we needed the the veteran presence whenever we could get it last year.
The only one I really full heartedly.didn't like was Sammy.


#2526767 Kesler traded to Anaheim

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 29 June 2014 - 12:28 AM

The scouts advise him. If you think Holland makes every decision on his own, you are sorely mistaken. He relies on the scouts and trusts them, and he pick players off the list they come up with together.


I never said he did..
I Never even implied it.


#2526762 Kesler traded to Anaheim

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 29 June 2014 - 12:19 AM

Incorrect.


The scouts are the reason we have those kids.


You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.

The scouts don't have final say in the pick.
Ken holland does.
Also.
A lot of the scouts are ken holland hires.

Ken holland controls which broken down old players he keeps. He decides which 35+ players to keep repeatedly bringing back. He decides to sign old aging, injury prone players to take spots away from kids.


He signed them so he could ease those kids into the spots without overwhelming them..

Ken Hollands the reason we have those kids in the first place.
