#2638953 When does Larkin get the C?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 23 November 2015 - 12:09 AM

Don't forget Abby. That cradle-to-grave contract indicates the team believes he is essential to the team's future success.

I mean, he kind of is.

Last year when we were on a tear without datsyuk and then when abs went down the team looked deflated. He's more vital to the success of the team than most would ever give him credit for. That and he's going to be expected to bridge the gap between the greatness of the legends with the kids. Which is important.

#2638950 Ferraro on waivers

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 22 November 2015 - 11:40 PM

Yah, if you dont like someone else's opinion, then it's trolling. I get your game. Instead of debating with facts and reason, just use insults and call people trolls. Real fun.

Ferraro had value. We let him go for nothing. That's not good player management.

at best we would get a 7th round pick for him, which there's no way to know if anyone would even have paid that. I'm not sure who all put in a bid for him, but Boston got him and its not like they're the last place team.(the lowest ranked team to put in the claim gets the player.)

So put yourself in that situation.
Would you rather have a 7th round pick(that would probably be a conditional pick based on whether or not he stays in the lineup) or take the chance that he'll clear waivers and you can keep him in the system.
MAYBE a 7th round pick, or the chance to keep the player you invested a 2nd round pick/and years of development in. It could be argued that Not trying to keep him in your system would be worse asset management. And losing a player with an actual chance of being part of the teams future would DEFINITELY be worse asset management.

And yeah, he was almost a 1st round pick in 2009, Would you trade anything for Scott Glennie? After all, he actually was a first round pick in 2009(8th overall which is close to a top 5 pick) and Boston definitely wouldn't have given us anything for him, even just *future considerations* (which are essentially worthless now anyway) like you said we're division rivals, they wouldn't trade with us.

And having a different opinion is fine but don't pretend that you use any kind of facts or reason that correlate your opinions. And debating with someone who has already made their mind up that they're right no matter what anyone else says isn't really a debate. Its more like talking to a wall.

#2638949 Ferraro on waivers

He improved quite a bit I thought this year... Much more energy and faster. He was a solid 4th line, definitely should have been Andersson or Jurco instead of him.

We could probably get a 2nd round pick for Jurco, at worst a 3rd.

And Andersson may be slower, but he's bigger, stronger, smarter and better defensively than Ferraro.
I wish he would've made it to grand rapids but he'll end up back in the AHL at some point anyway.

Over Jurco.


Who would you compare Ferarro to in order to equate his value?

Bobby Farnham.

Also waived.
Also picked up.
Is a healthy scratch blocking a better prospect who needs to be on the team.

Don't try to reason with people. Pulkks is providing scoring depth this team desperately needs yet he gets blamed for all that's wrong with this team. How about blaming players like Abdelkader or Kronwall who are top minute players who look between mediocre and hot garbage instead of a rookie?

I haven't seen anyone blame him for a loss, the worst I've seen is people criticizing him when he can't hit the net, or get frustrated when he decides to tee his shot up and most of the time those guys aren't averse to eating a healthy helping of crow.

Sometimes its hard watching all our smaller wingers get pushed around all game, get relegated to the corners or boards and end up losing the battles. Then they(Nyquist/Tatar) will go on an amazing run where it looks like no one can touch them. Pulkkinen brings a different dimension than then, as he is almost primarily there to shoot. But he isn't quick enough to create his own separation, so most of his shots end up as non threats.

I think pulks could turn into an awesome third line winger/pp specialist and as long as he understands thats all he is (even though he gets moved up and down the roster) and doesn't go searching for top 6 money, he should be a good depth scorer for us.

As for Kronwall, he'll be alright, hes had a revolving door of partners in smith, e, and green. Him and green look better together every game, as long as green can stay healthy and blash doesn't decide to give him another partner they'll start to gel.
Wasn't Nic Lidstrom -5 one year?

I think we're starting to see the team click, and its only going to get better as they get more experience with system.
This forum is pretty damn bi- polar though, when we lose the Sky's falling, when we win all the boo birds seem to disappear.

#2638563 Richards to return Friday; Athanasiou sent to GR

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 21 November 2015 - 05:48 AM

I thought Richards was one of our better forwards. He has the ability to make plays in tight, something we need more of

Blash's lines make no sense to me. All our grit is on the 4th line except Abby and Helm>Abby right now. I bet inserting him up the lineup would make a big difference in our energy

What bothered me was when dylark went to the dressing room, he plugged Glendenning into his spot, when he could've moved helm up.
The only reasoning I could think for this would be if he were worried about helm getting hurt, but even then it doesn't make much sense.

But richards seemed to play well enough for just coming back from the injury..
I wish he'd start putting up some more ppoints though.

#2638555 Jurco on Conditioning Assignment in GRs

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 21 November 2015 - 12:36 AM

Grand rapids highlights
Didn't see the mantha fight in there though.
Most of the focus was on athanasious return and Jurcos conditioning assignment, hell be there for A MAXIMUM. OF TWO WEEKS, which he made sure to make clear to the reporters for some reason.

#2638377 New NHL all-star game format

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 20 November 2015 - 06:03 PM

I like the sound of that game.

Ha. There's going to be one that pops up on the Internet.

But yeah.
It should be a good interactive way to get hammered..

#2638371 Who and What are the Detroit Red Wings?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 20 November 2015 - 05:27 PM

#2638283 New NHL all-star game format

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 19 November 2015 - 09:14 PM

All of that sounds good. That still doesn't change the fact that nothing they can do to the all star game will change the fact that it's boring and no one will watch. Sure some will tune in for the first 10 min to see the changes,but will tune our when the score reaches 20 goals in 5 min. Goals are fun when they are tough to get, 3 on 3 in the allstar game the goals will be going in like crazy.

Maybe you should drink more alcohol, like drink every time a goal is scored.
that way you can piss on more friends.

Being a man means drinking because you have to, not because you want to. Didn't realize you boys were buncha sissy quiters.

I drink scotch and whiskey because sometimes I get so mad at something so small that I HAVE to.

I drink beer because its tasted good to me for the last five years.

Which should be The preamble to alcoholic constitution, but no one that drunk give enough f***s.
