#2452974 11/12 GDT : Jets 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 12 November 2013 - 04:15 PM

I like to think of Jesus like with giant eagles wings, and singin' lead vocals for Lynyrd Skynyrd with like an angel band and I'm in the front row and I'm hammered drunk!

I like to think of jesus in a tuxedo t-shirt, cuz it says im formal, but I'm here to party.

#2449509 What's Killing Our Offense?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 01 November 2013 - 04:28 PM

 
Yes, this. This, this, this.
 
Datsyuk and Zetterberg are, right now, about as good as they're going to be from here on out. Alfredsson is here and he's awesome and ludicrously motivated. Howard is in fine form.
 
Ericsson is good enough that he can play top-pairing minutes or drop down to the second pairing and be really, really good - so, point being, it's not like adding a high-end defenseman would give us only two really good defensemen (which, I admit, probably wouldn't be worth it). It'd give us three studs plus DeKeyser, and that's a potentially Cup-winning top four, unlike what we have now (yeah, we're gonna win it all with Smith-Quincey getting pretty big minutes. Excuse me while I barf.)
 
Or, if we wanna go for a scoring forward - go for it, Ken! We need all the scoring help we can get! Do it!
 
This team is nowhere good enough to be a legitimate Cup contender. I'm starting to feel bad for Alfie. Do you see us beating the Pens in a best-of-seven? Boston? I think even the Leafs would thump us, and, ick, that's a new and extremely unpleasant notion. Or, let's say we come out of the East. Do we beat the 'hawks or Sharks or even the  Avs? OK, maybe the Avs. But it'd probably be close, and Mule would have to be the real Mule, which we can't really count on.
 
"Well, two things, Robert."
 
Go ahead.
 
"First, we took the Blackhawks to seven games last season."
 
I think we got a bit...well, I don't want to say lucky. I'll put it this way: I don't see us doing that again. We were just obscenely incredible for that three-game stretch, and the 'hawks were not themselves during that time. They got their crap together, Brendan Smith existed, and we ended that series on an incredibly terrible, madly disappointing, searingly sour note.
 
"OK, fair enough. But, the second thing is, we're in the middle of a big transition phase; we should be satisfied with just making the playoffs."
 
Booooooo!!!
 
We're the Red Wings. It's Cup or bust every season, no excuses. And Daniel Alfredsson, who some believe is God Himself, chose the Wings over the Bruins for His final push. So, win the Cup or go to Hell. (No pressure.)

Rant more often than weekly.
And ask yourself questions in the 3rd person on the daily.
That made me smile.

The only way the sedins would be creepier is if they were conjoined.
Which would be a hilarious fun to watch brand of hockey.


#2448616 jordin tootoo

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 29 October 2013 - 12:43 AM

There has been a lot of talk about him on this site, and also trade speculation surrounding him since the off-season with reports of Nashville wanting him back.

He has been good, but played limited minutes, and is obviously not in the brass' plan for the future.
Per @hockey_tracker: Edmonton journal reports there's been some discussion about the #oilers pursuing Detroit #redwings forward Jordon Tootoo.

Per fansided several teams including the sabres, islanders, and oilers have knocked on the door citing that talks went south quickly.

Since realistically he's one of our only moveable pieces to get nyquist in the lineup, what do you think we would/should accept for him.

And moderators, if this post would be better suited under trade rumors feel free to move it.
