#2498748 Injury Updates

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 21 March 2014 - 08:41 PM

If I was a Wing player I would be terrified to be on this team, who knows what will happen next.

This season has become like a bad episode of CSI.

You could've just said an episode of CSI, specifying "bad" is redundant.
But this injury streak is crazy.
Here's to hoping helm really is ready for tomorrow vs the wild.

He's weighed down by goalie pads, and in skates, and he's still moving smoother than everyons else.

#2498698 James Neal Cross-Check to Glendening's Head [GIF] - Suspension?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 21 March 2014 - 02:42 PM

Given that the wings and pens are 1&2 in man games lost, you could see no suspensions were coming.
And I don't advocate any shot to the nuts, and I wish it was a different retaliation, but honestly its about time someone on the wings stood up for themselves.

If smith goes out and makes a fool of himself on the wing, he won't be there too long.
Babs will juggle bodies around.

Wings are deep at center, especially when/if we get healthy. But if this kid is willing to come to camp and try out go for it. It would be great to have him as an emergency call up at some point (like when helm gets hurt again) but I just don't see the Wings having space for him right now, maybe in a year or two unfortunately.  

His khl contract isn't up until after next season anyway.
Who knows.

#2495484 A great scrap ends in....A high five and a hug?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 15 March 2014 - 02:02 PM

Honestly aside from the few exceptions most fights are just to get some energy for the teams.
In the NHL you see fighters pat the other guy on the back or see his lips mouth something supportive.
They're putting personal safety aside for their teams, and know its dangerous.
Those two were literally exchanging solid punches to the face for how long?
It's awesome they were happy for eachother, who cares they acknowledged the good scrap after.

We do need a replacement for jarnkrok now...

#2492896 3/7 GDT: Devils 4 at Red Wings 7

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 07 March 2014 - 09:50 PM

Good lord that's what I said when we got him!!!! Can you imagine someone else's 3rd line trying to keep up with the kids. Not to mention another 3 with really good centers. We are deep as hell if those two Euro twins can get back.

I pray we get healthy just to see how it all works out.

The kids against an average 3rd line is almost unfair, now imagine someone's fourth line trying to keep up with helm Weiss and abby.

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.

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

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

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 06 February 2014 - 05:52 PM

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.

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