#2491410 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 05 March 2014 - 09:27 PM

Consider this:
Why would one of the better AHL prospects go home if they can make more money here and get a place on the big club soon? The Predators need offensive help their D and goaltending are set so it's not like he wouldn't have chance there. If he is indeed set on going back this deal would be better but till that happens I am not buying it.

I agree with you, except he won't make more money here.
At all.

#2483389 Upgrade The Defense Rumours

Id veto any deal that includes jurco.
Hes gonna be a stud.

Not that i want to get rid of tatar or nyq, but jurcos big. And he hits.

#2481805 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

"The rise and grind line really putting pressure on the back end."

Im waiting for an lgw-er to not read this thread, see one of the names in a gdt and incite another dirty harry/~$~ (player formerly known as steve) type situation...
Which I wouldn't object to....

#2481786 2/6 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Panthers 1

Tongue in cheek due to frustration on being able to put together awesome effort with high end teams yet show up to a knife fight with a nerf football against lesser skilled teams

I get what you're saying.
But a well placed nerf football to the groin from eight feet away would slow a stab attempt down.
Or at least be able to catch a blade before it hit body.

Then again, for me.
It's nerf......
Or nothin.

#2481595 Steven Stamkos will not play for Team Canada at the Sochi Olympics.

St. Louis deserves it, and it'll probably be his last chance at the olympics.

That's awesome.

#2481419 NHL may rethink Sochi

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 05 February 2014 - 12:13 PM

These are world class athletes.
I'm not saying they need five star accommodations but clean water isn't a creature comfort.

Agree to disagree but sub standard living conditions isn't something Olympic athletes should have to concern themselves with, they should worry about playing to the best of their ability...

When's the last time you got a good night's sleep in the cold with no heat?

I'd say its a strategy for russia to get an upper hand, but I haven't heard anything about the Russians bunking.

And I'm completely fine with them having dorm type rooms, but dorms in this kind of disarray get shut down.

#2481335 NHL may rethink Sochi

You guys do remember that in Lake Placid 1980 Olympics, the Olympic village was in a prison, right?

At least prisons are secure, and theres potable water.
Plus that was 34 yrs ago, the standard of living for the average person has risen dramatically since then, not to mention that of a professional/Olympic athlete.

Nyquist was just announced as Franzen's replacement on Team Sweden.  

That's sick.

#2480600 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 03 February 2014 - 02:17 PM

I know ive expressed my love of his play multiple times, but something tells me that if we traded jurco wed regret the hell out of it in two or three years.
He's shown the same flashes of brilliance with the puck as pav did in his first season.
Not saying hes as good as pav, because hockey smart wise pav is one of the best to ever play the game.
he knows where you are, and where you should be, takes both into consideration for his positioning, then feeds the puck where your stick should be.

Jurco has the natural ability, but grew up in a different world, so he looks for you first, pavs like a computer the way he processes things, but i get the feeling jurcs could play any situation, with anyone and not have to worry tooo much about who you put him with.

Plus he's big.
Can hit.
Can shoot.
Can deke/dangle
Who knows.
Put him on pavs wing and give jurcs a Russian Rosetta stone and he could be pav with size, except a winger.
But I bet he could play c.
Too much upside to trade away.
Sheahans just too good, too big, too universal, and has too high a ceilingto trade.

Nyq and tats are the old philosophy of small ultra skill gone right, possibly for the last time as were leaning toward bigger bodies.

Keep em all.
stand pat, unless we can something for almost nothing, drw prospects are brought up right and will thrive in other places.
Keep em all except the spare parts.

But we have good prospects, wait till any of them prove theyre limited to one role, then when we have someone better at that, trade em.
But until then, these young guys are too good, could potentially be great, and theyre all well rounded.
I'd get rid of andersson before any of those four.
And manthas a big part of our future.
Can't trade him.

So steady the ship, float into the playoffs, and anything else after is a bonus.
then in the off-season, throw that money that's coming off the books at some big names.
Or make the trades then, at least we won't be over paying for a rental then.

Of course there was.  Are you saying nothing Detroit did was let go?  Of course there was.  It happens in EVERY SINGLE NHL GAME.  Officials miss calls they should make, make calls they shouldn't, don't see certain things, see things that didn't really happen....Just like the fans do.  They don't get to sit in front of the tv and watch replays in slo mo.  They have to make split second calls in a game that moves fast.  It has always been and always will be.  It isn't an anti-Red Wing conspiracy, it isn't Bettman's fault, it isn't Crosby or Ovechkin's fault.  

*shakes fist in despair*

#2480455 What's wrong with Pasha? (Mod warning post #57)

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 02 February 2014 - 07:42 PM

Datsyuk has given enough to us that he deserves to do what he can to be healthy.
Whether that means sitting out wings games so he won't come back too much worse than he was after is fine.
Hell be here for three years after this year.
I trust hell do whats right, and honestly he's one of the best players and people to ever play the game.
I'd support him through whatever.

#2479501 Injury Updates

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 31 January 2014 - 10:14 PM

Pav is hurt.
Leave it at that.
It's disgusting to see the couple people run their mouth about him.
