If the Hockey Gods do exist, that game would have had their finger prints allllllllll over it. 

 

I hope the Sharks miss the playoffs by THESE two points.

Ok is relative term....did you see him completely miss that wide open net from the top of the paint last night?

 

How dare he???

 

Did you see Tatar miss the tap-in from Smith vs Ducks Monday night. Would have made it 4-2 Wings. Is he a bad player?

21. This is me spitballing, but if you’re Detroit and Toronto, would you do Dion Phaneuf for Stephen Weiss and Jakub Kindl? The Red Wings gain on the money (but just a little bit, unless some of Phaneuf’s salary is held back), the Maple Leafs gain on term.

 

 

I don't know how I feel. I have always thought Double Dion would do better in A) not in a leadership role and b) not in media crazy Toronto. 

 

For Weiss and Kindl? Straight up?  I'm not a huge fan of Phaneuf, but you'd have to be crazy not to make this deal.

Wait didn't the wings screw over Wisniewskis grandfather back in the day?

 

Yes, Iliitch's dad didn't offer him fair market value for the beet juice he was selling in the Eastern Market.

Stop bickering over Howard in the shootout everyone!!!!!! I’m sick of hearing this crap. 

 

We all know he lost tonight’s game because he blew it in regulation.

They need their #1 goalie to make that save on the 2nd goal.

I won't be disappointed if Holland does nothing.  BUT, if Wiz or even Yandle for that matter goes somewhere for something that Holland could have beat without raping the untouchables, then I will be a bit upset knowing that Holland thinks his team is "fine" as it stands.  I am good going into the playoffs knowing Holland tried, but the example of the 4th round pick was just that. I would hope that Holland would part with a 4th for Wiz, but my point was I hope Holland doesn't say no and Wiz goes somewhere cheap.

 

Holland's no idiot. He knows what he has with this team. If he can get Yandle for beans, he's going to do it.

 

All he has said so far is:

 

1. He's not trading Larkin, Mantha, Nyquist, Tatar, or his 1st

2. He's not looking for depth, he's looking for a legitimate upgrade on the blueline

 

Both of those statements should be very very easy, as a fan, to get behind.

...which means Holland will pull something noone is expecting.....Wiz please. IMO that would be the best acquisition at the least cost. Along with being an upgrade to what we have. I am with Kip though, I won't get my hopes up too much, and pray he doesn't get traded for a 4th round pick that Holland refused to give up, then I will be a bit upset.

 

First off: Holland's going to do what we're all expecting him to do: very little or nothing (and that's OK)

 

Secondly: I know you're just trying to preemptively frame your disappointment, but Wiz for a 4th? And Holland wouldn't give that up? That's crazy talk.




#2573503 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by rick zombo on 22 February 2015 - 01:43 AM

With his surgically repaired finger I'm guessing Ericsson must be more careful if/when he chooses to engage in fisticuffs.
 
It's these incidents that makes ya wish we had a Dmac on the team to settle the score, but again...


Yeah. He was interviewed by FSD tonight, between periods, after the Benn fight and also during the first intermission after the MacKinnon fight in the Colodado game. In both interviews he said that he's reluctant to fight because he's gotten hurt in fights in the past. I think he's obviously just trying to stay healthy. He actually looks and sounds like he has no fear of dropping the gloves.

#2573470 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by rick zombo on 22 February 2015 - 12:03 AM

I agree with you that Ericsson should've gone after Benn, but that's a topic that's run it's course over, and over.

 

In fairness, I don’t know what Ericsson saw. 

 

Earlier this year year when Nolan smoked Helm (boarding, 2 game suspension), Ericsson went nuts.
