Cody franson gets caught playing like a fourth forward, then when he gets caught out of position he doesn't have the speed to recover. He's also very bad positionally in the defensive zone. The weird part is he takes himself out of plays making hits until he's in his own end, in which case he helps the guy set up a tent in front of the net and leaves him to dig for garbage goals in peace.

Mrazek has never even taken us past the first round time to trade him for bryzgalov and Dan Cleary

I actually kind of miss seeing bryz,he was a character. And for a few days there he looked like a decent goalie too

#2622515 Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 07 August 2015 - 10:09 PM

I listened to that interview in its entirety. Fetisov did not say this.

From what I've read on the internet, fetisov seems to be walking an odd road on this whole thing, but honestly I trust your take on it more than I do writers just trying to get hits on their articles. And most of the time they're just using translation programs that are flawed anyway. So thanks for the insite.

McCarty should beat the s**** out of Lemieux for old times sake. Out of no where too. Would be hilarious. 

it sounds like you're describing assault.

And with today's p****fied NHL he would probably get sentenced to jail.

That is generally what happens when you assault someone.

I want Forsberg, Roy, Foote, and Lemieux playing and I want blood.
Any ideas on who will be playing for Colorado?

Sakic, Roy, forsberg are the only names I've seen...
I imagine they're still checking to see who wants to, who can, who can't etc.etc.

#2622192 Which prospect will have the best nhl career

I can't believe I'm the only one who voted for Mantha so far

You are an enigma.

#2621999 Who is the better player Zetterberg or Toews. Prime vs. Present

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 01 August 2015 - 01:34 AM

I'm a bit mixed on my feeling as of now...

In a 7 game playoff series, today, if Hank is healthy I take him. Putting aside the arguments of each ones playoff production the last few years, or career ppg, the series two years back is a pretty good indicator of what you'd get.
And Toews was throwing a temper tantrum like he was Sidney Crosby. Didn't he take like three consecutive penalties because of the way z was on him?

A healthy Zetterberg in the playoffs is a beast, but theres still no way of knowing how his back will hold up, or whether he can stay upright throughout a full season without draining himself, so you gotta pick Toews.

Prime vs prime shouldn't even be a question as of right now though.
Z in his prime was on a completely different level than Toews is, on top of being equal to or better in the d zone, his offense was also elite.
The only way this becomes a discussion is if Toews maintains his defensive play, scores enough points in the coming years to equal that of a $10,500,000 player, which I don't see happening.
Add to that, that he would also have to start spending a lot more time on the penalty kill like z did in his prime.

I could see Toews MAYBE scoring at a better rate than last season, as scoring was down league wide, but not enough to make him comparable to how dominant z was offensively.

I think Franson looked at a Boychuck like contract but he isn't as good.

If I'm Holland I'd offer 5x5 or 4,2x6 Franson adds size and physicality.

I've been watching quite a bit of franson tape lately because I expected us to sign him, and from what I've seen Franson is way too slow..,
He's somewhat physical in that he hits a lot, but he puts himself out of position with his hits and doesn't have the foot speed to recover...

If we ended up getting rid of Quincey and kindl(not going to happen) I dont even think ehroff would be worth the risk for the bottom pair, he's shown he can put up points, but he can't stay healthy, and he isn't the pmd he once was. Imagine how awful it would have looked had he accepted our contract offer last year.

He'd be a huge question mark for the next few years.

#2621545 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 24 July 2015 - 09:46 PM

Wooo, I like the two years on jurco. One less contract to deal with next year.. Here's to hoping he starts developing towards a physical goal scorer :)

Even if he doesn't light up the scoresheet, a big, physical, fast kid whos defensively responsible and can still bring a good amount of skill to the bottom six isn't a bad thing.

He just got bought out, so basically all he has to do is sign one year deals for a bit over a mill and he'll basically be making 6m a year.

And on one year deals he scores a bunch of points, Cuz it motivates him to actually play.

#2620809 Stan Bowman (CHI) on CBA troubles

Difference is ratings are down, GMs are starting to get fed up so it's not just fans anymore.
I mean I'm not an NFL fan but even I know who the Patriots, Seahawks are a league needs super-teams.

Weren't ratings up quite a bit last year.
And the seahawks are a super team now, because they draft really well and had a pro bowl quarterback making under 1m dollars.

Once his contract kicks in they'll lose some of their depth...
And the patriots are an anomaly, bill belichik is a wizard, and they constantly cheat. Plus tom Brady is probably the best quarterback the leagues ever seen, so that also doesn't really apply.

The blackhawks are basically a dynasty, the kings could have been another one had they bought out Richards before last season and used that money to bolster their lineup...
So we kind of have super teams.
