#2525130 Compliance buyout expected to be used on Tootoo

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 22 June 2014 - 12:41 PM

You and others defending Franzen/keeping him are making circular arguements. "we can't buy him out because we don't have anyone better". That is BS. After the Rags bought out Richards who out performed Franzen this year in every way, your point holds less water. Richards is younger, doesn't have a concussion history, played more games, scored more goals, had more points, and yet the Rags REALIZED their mistake and bought him out. Why? Because they knew this was their best chance to get out from under his bad contract. They now have a roster spot open and cap room to go out and get better players. I know it is pretty complicated. Cut the crap and bring in better players. Wonder why our GM can't seem to figure this out.

Richards did not out play franzen.
For proof, see the Richards thread.

also.
Stop turning every thread into something about franzen.
This thread is about tootoo being bought out, not another franzen hate thread.

Jurco is pretty overvalued at this point, I have a feeling that Pulkkinen will displace him soon in the depth chart. 


If you're here, then who's guarding the bridge?

Anyone willing to trade jurco is crazy.
Kip.
Very well said.


#2524906 Spezza Requests Trade

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 20 June 2014 - 05:50 PM

I think this raises some pretty important questions:

1. What type of underwear were they? Boxers? Briefs? Boxer briefs? Bikini?
2. What color?
3. Most importantly, what size?

So um, yeah. Jason Spezza. He probably wears underwear too.

Ha. I was ten. So I could be remembering it wrong.
But I believe they were red briefs or boxer briefs, and the size of his underwear has no correlation to the size if his............

Ha.

But spezza wears panties.
In no way do I want him on the team.
He doesn't play 6'2, and he's not even that good in puck battles which you'd think he would be.

Plus Ottawa will get wayyyyy more than they should for him.


#2524901 Joe Thornton to the Wings?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 20 June 2014 - 05:18 PM

We need size and grit, so let's trade away 15+ years of a big, skilled, (he played pretty damn gritty last year) top six winger for Joe Thornton.
Who could be good with franzen, maybe, for possibly two years.


#2524878 Joe Thornton to the Wings?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 20 June 2014 - 01:51 PM

Jurco, Andersson, and a pick would be fine with me


One of our future big top six wingers?
With the silkiest mitts weve seen since datsyuk got here....
You would give up For someone who's got maybe one or two decent years left?


#2524745 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 19 June 2014 - 11:30 PM

I think it's a great to have them in one place and should be pinned.
 
Mods?


I think the mods took a vacation from the site, because there's a full on recruiting pitch for the hare Krishna in the minor and pro league affiliate forum, and its been there for a full day now.


#2524687 Spezza Requests Trade

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 19 June 2014 - 08:12 PM

Its kind of crazy the amount of top six talent requesting trades out of canada, I would hope the fans weren't that crazy there, but I'd believe it.

I was in Franklin park mall about fifteen years ago,(when it was nice) wearing a fedorov jersey. I was walking with my aunt and he was in one of the department stores buying underwear, in the middle of a pretty crowded store, and no one was bothering him.
I waved at him while I was playing on the escalators and he walked up and started talking to me and offered to sign my jersey.
Granted fedorov probably welcomed the attention, but still.

Free agency's looking like it might end up being exciting this year, but then again.
I say that every year.

I don't think you understood me at all.  I know humor/sarcasm doesn't translate well on the internet.


Ha.
I did not catch the sarcasm, and I had just read through around twenty pages of "Holland sucks, fire him.
Babcock is a bad coach,
Blahblahblahblah franzen, blahblahblah buyout" with a severely smaller number of decent posts.

Hahaha.


#2524402 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

I get what you're saying buddy, and we spoke about this last night.  I definitely don't want to fall into doomsday land, but at the same time I legitimately feel like many of us are dangerously close to crossing the line between wanting to acquire players that help us win, and wanting to acquire players just so we don't feel like management has lost it.  I'm all about the former, but believe doing nothing at all is better than than the latter.  If stop gaps are all that's likely to happen, I'd prefer to see these young guys begin their careers right now.  At least that will help us in the long run.  Signing mediocre hacks like Stralman or Gilbert accomplishes nothing (aside from being able to say "look we signed a puckmover!").  It would be Ian White 2.0.  "No need to acquire real talent like Wisniewski or Erhoff, we got Ian White and Mike Commodore and at bargain prices too!"

 

The start of that was beautifully put.
A lot of posters here are so damn bi polar with what they want the team to do.

And those stop gaps are there for depth, because they know people are going to get hurt, and some of the kids are going to have slumps, and the young d men could get in over there head and those vets help add a comfort level you need all around you.

Any trade for a top 4 d man in their prime is going to cost us a pick and a prospect, but you just ranted about wanting all the kids careers to start now.

Well.
Do you want to throw them in over their heads with no one to help show them the ropes, or should we make sure they can tread by themselves first?

Kh not making any moves.
Heard the complaints all season, then he makes one and every one loses it.

This fan base is soo damn spoiled, and (not necessarily directing this at you) don't seem to know what they're talking about.

Honestly it Bums me out how down on the wings most of you guys seem to be.
I expect to argue about mistakes kh and/or babs have made/do make.

But to constantly have to try to argue with people about why ken Holland(the worst gm ever, for the last 20+ successful years) and mike (jack adams finalist) babcock shouldnt be fired.

Its kinda ridiculous.

This is the Detroit red wings.
Everything will be fine.
Why can't we all just enjoy the ride?


#2524369 Trading up?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 18 June 2014 - 06:30 AM

Let's trade away everyone over the age of 29, because who needs veteran leadership anyway?



And you never know what would have happened had they traded yzerman to pick bouwmeester.

Maybe bouwmeester doesn't turn out as good.

Maybe Lidstrom decided that he doesn't want to play for a team that would trade their captain of the last two decades for an unproven prospect and decides to just go back to sweden after his contract is up.


Maybe, were so spoiled as a fan base that we throw temper tantrums about the tiniest little things.

And if you're going to trade your best player, you don't do it for an Aaron ekblad, you do it for a Crosby, or mcdavid.
Someone where the risk is so low that youd be stupid not to.


#2523462 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 11 June 2014 - 06:42 AM

Franzy the panzy...the big Euro sissy boy floater who can't take a punch.
 
now that's trolling, you crybabies..."oh this thread is irritating"..."you guys are trolling"   Grow a pair, Nancy

Im not entirely sure you grasp the concept of an internet troll.


#2523461 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 11 June 2014 - 06:33 AM

When the wings were playing, if you watched carefully youd see every time Johan was on the ice, the opposition actually skated out of his path to the net, and wherever the puck was, he just cares so little 60-70 games a year that he couldn't do anything with his limitless golden opportunities.

Seriously.

I get that you're annoyed with his consistency.
We all get it.
Seriously.
....
Its completely.
And totally understood.
That Johan franzen is a streaky goal scorer.
We know his contract extends two-three years longer than wed like.
We get that.
It sucks.
He hasn't shown up in the playoffs the way he did in 08, and he most likely never will.


Now that I got the rational dislikes for him out of the way, can you stop reaching for arguments?

When franzens not scoring, he still back checks, he's still not a liability when he's on the ice, and he's still setting guys up.
For the most part, vaneks not doing that.
Ovis definitely not doing that.
They put up more points than him, and get wayyyy more money, but those were the comparisons.

And if I call you Nancy do i have to show an AARP card to use it as an insult?

Arrogance aside, the franzen hate is getting ridiculous.

I think the refs should be given full face masks a choice of a mace or brass knuckles, and gloves and make the refs an active participant in fighting.

If he wins, you're suspended the ten games.
If you win, he can't call a penalty on you the rest of the game.

Regular season would be relatively normal, playoffs come around and all hell breaks loose.
