#2624006 What's your roster lines ?

Posted by rick zombo on Today, 01:09 PM

Trading Howard is dumb if we want to make a playoff run.  What happens if Mrazek gets injured?  Tommy McCollum would be our starting goalie. Think about that for a second. 

 

But if you really really hate Howard, then trading him is fun times.

#2622934 Nashville to wear gold helmets for Saturday games in 2015/2016

Posted by rick zombo on 11 August 2015 - 11:02 PM

I remember before yesterday when I could smugly scoff at other teams piss-ugly ideas for gear and jerseys.

No one. If you're not a Red Wing? Then piss off.




#2622322 Brandon Sutter traded to Canucks

Posted by rick zombo on 05 August 2015 - 01:23 PM

Signed to five years, $4.375 million per year. 

 

That Nyquist contract keeps looking better.




#2622140 Free agents this off season

Posted by rick zombo on 03 August 2015 - 09:59 AM

I'm guessing they'll both get a shot at the starting job.  

 

This is in no way a criticism of Mrazek.  Just that the team would be foolish to hand over the reigns completely to a guy with something like 41 NHL starts and who hasn't started more than 50 games since the OHL.  

 

They may start Mrazek right out of the gate, but he will have to play very well to hang onto the spot with Howard on the bench behind him.  My guess is they play them as a tandem and keep them fighting for the #1 spot.  

 

Exactly. And seriously, why wouldn't they? I have no horse in this race, so I don't care who the #1 guy is as long as he plays like a #1 goalie. Best case, both goalies are lights out but one is more lights out. How awesome would that be? Worst case, both goalies are bad with one being slightly less bad.

 

I don't want to start a goalie flame war here, but it seems that the members insisting that Mrazek has "already stolen Howard's job" are simply pro Mrazek, anti Howard, and are hoping one succeeds while the other fails. Almost like they'd rather have one great goalie on this team than have two.  Which is completely crazy.

You mean bumped up past all the escort spam?  ;)

 

You call it "spam". I call it a resourse. :lol:




#2621503 Free agents this off season

Posted by rick zombo on 24 July 2015 - 01:10 PM

People act like Semin has this magic switch he can throw in a contract year. And that he's just lazy otherwise. Semin needs more money? BAM!! 35 goals. Semin has more money? BAM!! Helathy scratch.

 

I see it more like this: maybe the guy just sucks now, beyond recovery.




#2621338 Wings lose scout to leafs

Posted by rick zombo on 23 July 2015 - 02:20 PM

Yeah I saw this. Babs is really starting to piss me off by taking some of our coaching and staff members.. 

 

Goes to show how popular Babs really was among the organization. 

 

Yeah well. I'd rather lose a scout and a coach or two than watch Glendenning and Miller play 18 minutes a night again this season.




#2621336 Wings lose scout to leafs

Posted by rick zombo on 23 July 2015 - 02:02 PM

Just saw on twitter stupid Babcock stole Andersen's right hand man ... Forget how his name spelt but he's a Finnish scout and responsible for us drafting Tatar nyquist pulkkinen jarnkrok marchenko nestrasil among a Few others

Seems it's always the wings losing key staff


Stupid leafs



http://octopusthrowe...ds-maple-leafs/

 

Meh. If he was Andersson's right hand man, then technically Andersson was more responsible for drafting those guys.

 

But yeah. Babcock and the Leafs can go get  f***ed  any time know.




#2621333 Jim Devellano on Mantha's play: "Very disappointing"

Posted by rick zombo on 23 July 2015 - 01:28 PM

I honestly think the Mantha backlash was completely based on the fact that Wings fans haven't had too many first round, blue chip prospects to boner over in 20 years. We were starving for one. So when Mantha came along, the hype got out of hand.




#2621330 Jim Devellano on Mantha's play: "Very disappointing"

Posted by rick zombo on 23 July 2015 - 01:07 PM

what if Larkin has a disappointing AHL season

 

If that happened and I were Svechnikov, I'd move back to Russia.

#2621323 Lovable Dan Cleary update thread

Posted by rick zombo on 23 July 2015 - 12:32 PM

I agree with Gretzky, Nyquist should have started that season in Detroit, also I agree last season, Jurco should've spent the year in GR, considering he had the exemption, he would've developed a little more to the NA game. Not that he would've been a big hit here, but we would have never lost Nestrasil for nothing.  Sure, the log jam this year would've been a body larger, but who knows...I know he wasn't a huge loss, but you guys know my disgust with losing someone or nothing.

 

ALTHOUGH, after Nyquist was called up he was the hottest scorer in the league practically, could you imagine the contract he'd have now (as opposed to $4.75M) if he had played that entire season and scored at that pace for 65-82 games?

#2621320 Pulkkinen re-signs.... 1 year deal

Posted by rick zombo on 23 July 2015 - 12:29 PM

Pulkkinen is a slapshot. 

 

Has he never scored with a backhand, wrist, or snapshot? Crazy.

 

Pulkkinen was a 4th round draft pick 5 years ago... What is wrong with him being a complimentary player, getting 3rd line minutes and being a weapon on the power-play? I don't get it at all... He's a player we've been looking for for quite some time now. He is a goal scorer and if he becomes half as good as some of us expect him to be, he will be a really good player for the Red Wings...
