#2557599 Rank our griffins d prospects

Posted by nawein on 19 December 2014 - 06:31 AM

Which isn't much for a guy who has played his entire career on big ice. Bäckman has quite a good resumé and if we can't even make room for him to get some security and learn in the AHL we are going to end up regretting it.

No I agree with you entirely. I was just being a smart***. He needs more time and he'll play in the NHL. I fully believe that.

I don't know how much chance you've been given to "win a spot" when you've been benched for 7 out of your first 20-ish games.

By my calculations that's 13-ish chances.

I was really high on him because he's swedish and I can't help but pay attention to every swede we have but I don't know anymore about backman but I hope your right

If he can fill out and add a good amount of muscle, which I think he will, he'll be solid. Whether it's for us or not, I do believe he has a future in the NHL.

I don't really want to rank them, but Backman is going to surprise people. That's all I have on this.

#2555964 Boston to host 2016 Winter Classic

Posted by nawein on 12 December 2014 - 12:47 PM

I'm happy for Boston it's long overdue that being said the NHL has destroyed the Winter Classic by adding these stupid Stadium Series games. Boston - Montreal would be a dandy no question

Please tell me you're kidding about the long overdue part. Everyone else was clearly sarcastic but you sound serious.

It's funny that this thread is still a thing.

Always room for improvement.

#2554084 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by nawein on 05 December 2014 - 12:48 PM

Starting to make sense.  So, if Cleary --obviously well past any waiver exemptions from old CBA, etc. -- was waived/unclaimed at the begining of the season, like Callahan and Ferraro.  Then we called him up for 3 games, then we sent him back down. 
He wouldn't have to go through waivers?
I guess my next question is:  Is this 10GP/30 Days on Roster just a wrinkle for this season or for the entirety of the current CBA?

It's for the whole CBA, and yes, you are correct with your Cleary example.

"13.5 Waiver Expiration. The rights granted under this Article to Loan a Player(s) who is
otherwise required to clear Regular Waivers to a minor league club expire for any Player(s) who,
after clearing Regular Waivers:
(i) is not Loaned to a minor league club, or is Recalled from a minor league
club (except on emergency Recall) and remains on an NHL roster for 74
ARTICLE 13 13.6-13.9
thirty (30) days (cumulative) or plays ten (10) NHL Games (cumulative),
(ii) is Recalled from a minor league club on emergency Recall and plays in
ten (10) NHL Games (cumulative) while on emergency Recall. For
purposes of clarity, games played while on regular Recall shall not count
towards the ten (10) NHL Games in this subsection (ii)."
"13.2 The "Playing Season Waiver Period" shall begin on the twelfth (12th) day prior to the
start of the Regular Season and end on the day following the last day of a Club's Playing Season.
Subject to the provisions of this Article, the rights to the services of a Player may be Loaned to a
club of another league, upon fulfillment of the following conditions, except when elsewhere
expressly prohibited:
(a) Regular Waivers were requested and cleared during the Playing Season Waiver
Period; and
(b) the Player has not played in ten (10) or more NHL Games cumulative since
Regular Waivers on him were last cleared, and more than thirty (30) days cumulative on an NHL
roster have not passed since Regular Waivers on him were last cleared."
These are directly from the CBA. I'll sum it up here regarding Callahan. 
This article is about loaning players to minor league clubs who cleared waivers once, and when you have to pass them through waivers again. Basically, it's about exceptions to the waiver rules. It says a few different things. First, if a player is clears waivers and isn't sent down for 30 days or plays 10 games (whichever is sooner), he must pass through waivers again. Also, as Dickie has said, if he is clears, is sent down, recalled, and stays on the NHL roster for a cumulative 30 days or plays in 10 NHL games He must pass through waivers again. So, we could call him up once this month, once next month, twice in February, and 4 times in March without having to place him on waivers again as long as he is on the roster for less than 30 cumulative days and plays less than 10 games. 
Also, as far Nestrasil, age of contract signing is the key for why Nestrasil's waiver exemption expired. He got 3 years of exemption because he signed at age 20. It had nothing to do with games played.
Ouellet has played 10 games, and signed at 19 (2012), so he got 4 years of exemption. His will expire after he plays 150 more games, or in 2016.
I can't get the formatting to copy over right, but here's a link to the CBA. 
Waivers rules start on page 71. 

Also, yes, I do think we can be contenders if everything falls into place. Everyone needs to play well. If we get back to playing solid defensive hockey, we don't seem to lose that often. We don't really win convincingly, but we don't lose either. That could pay dividends in the playoffs.

#2552330 11/26 GDT : Philadelphia Flyers 2 at Red Wings 5

They are based on past examples, given some funny names and done by math freaks and excel geniuses but I guess I'm just not advanced enough to care about stats other than goals, assists, gave is... the official ones. And even then they aren't telling the whole story a player could have a great game but still be snake bitten

And that, usually, can be shown using advance stats. That's why they're there. To tell more of the story.

#2551914 Lines Thread

Because it's reasonable to assume that both those guys will play a full 82 games this season, or going forward?  I'm not skewing stats.  I'm going by their totals.  Neither of those two will ever play a full 82 games again.  So why would you go by their full season projections?

Because a per game estimate is a far better predictor of what they'll do in a single game than their recent season totals would suggest. You'd be correct if they were playing the emtire season together, but they're not.

#2549192 Malkin hit on Girardi

Posted by nawein on 16 November 2014 - 12:18 PM

I don't mind the scuffle at all....who cares of it's dirty or clean?  You don't want your players getting drilled like that.  If Crosby got lit up like that on a perfectly clean hit, if there is no response, then I can easily write that team off as having no chance of success.

This is hockey. Your guys are going to get rocked every once in a while. Get over it. Not every hit needs or should get retribution.

#2548886 Where to stay in Detroit

Definitely trying sweetwater next time I'm in town. Walked past it last weekend when I was in town for the Tampa game and wanted to stop but ended up going to Pizza Papalis instead. I'm always down for some good chicken wings.

Should have just awarded the goal.

3 comments deep and nobody has mention that Glendening isn't a defenseman yet. He's a center.

#2542880 Franzen to 7-day IR

Posted by nawein on 21 October 2014 - 04:34 PM

I'm OK with that. I just don't think Miller is better than Jurco. I'd rather have Jurco on the 4th line than Miller.

We would lose more games with Jurco on the 4th line over Miller.
