#2518151 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by rick zombo on 29 April 2014 - 10:48 AM

 

Dang.  Why so acrimonious man?  Everything alright at home?


 

And probably right out of Kenny's price range as well.  Not that we couldn't afford it mind you...

 

Because I'm getting tired of logging on the LGWings and seeing people's negative opinions over and over and over. To the point where we're now making assumptions on Holland's mental and emotional disposition?

 

And I like coming here. So I don't plan on stopping. And I ignore lots of posts, but sometimes I just can't.




#2517956 Was Legwand worth it?

In 7 years, when the streak has reached 30, and Jarnkrok is back in Sweeden, we'll all look back fondly on this trade :w00t:

I'm not a GM. He is. I'm allowed to have fun on CapGeek.

Also, that roster is much improved. Borders on finishing 4-5 not 8-9. 

Plus we'd get another top player for trading Howard and Nyquist. Maybe a Yandle or someone.

I love people like you. Get all sarcastic and hide behind their computer. Mr. Tough Guy. Are you Tatar in disguise?

 

Yes, you've said that already.

If you want to build your team around Nyq and Tatar go ahead. See you in the Draft, Edmonton #2


 

Then he better take a big discount. Like 3 a year or less. We need more important pieces than a soft and old Alfie. 

 

We need to trade for great players.

 

Ah yes. Why didn’t I realize that? 

 

“Hey everybody. It’s all good. Relax. Holland just has to trade for some great players and everything will be fine"

 

:lol:

Helen St. James is usually just an echo of Holland. As in, she usually just repeats things he tells her. 

 

This is important to understand because she indicating that the only UFA the Wings are concerned about bringing back is Alfredsson.

I tend to agree with this.

nyquist and tatar have been absolutely useless.

 

Much like Datsyuk and Zetterberg were early in their careers. 




#2515641 Wings Roster great on paper ?

Posted by rick zombo on 24 April 2014 - 10:45 PM

i just thought that if our roster was fully fit and all the guys were in their prime days it wouldn't be too bad, 

in fact it could probably go all the way. this is what Kenny was probably thinking............. :confused:

 

Zetterberg  Datsyuk  Alfredsson

 

Samuelsson  Legwand  Bertuzzi

 

Franzen  Weiss  Cleary

 

Abdelkader  Helm  Tootoo

 

 

Kronwall  Ericsson

 

DeKeyser  Smith

 

Quincey  Kindl

 

Howard Gustavsson

 

 

 

 

Wha? Are you saying Kenny was probably thinking Sammy, Bert, and Cleary were still in their prime days? 

 

Because I guarantee he wasn’t thinking that.

 

And right now, on paper, that roster sucks ***.

Why is Bert in..guy only uses one hand half the time..ughh

 

He's been saving the other hand for the playoffs.




#2514614 ECQF - Series C - Penguins versus Blue Jackets

Posted by rick zombo on 24 April 2014 - 10:46 AM

God, if we make it out of the Boston series I can't wait to play Pittsburgh.

 

We'd have to play the Habs first though.




#2514606 ECQF - Game 4 - Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (F/OT)

Posted by rick zombo on 24 April 2014 - 10:35 AM

 

I'll change it, but I'm inferring he'll play. 

 

For sure. It looks like he'll play. I agree. Just not confirmed 100% official.




#2514265 ADQF | Game 3 | Boston 3 @ Detroit 0, BOS leads series 2-1

Posted by rick zombo on 23 April 2014 - 08:55 AM

I agree. We've been down before, but this is the first time I really have no hope. I think it's because they look beaten in their demeanor. I've never seen the Wings look so defeated so early in a series. I thought the kids would be all determined and relentless with their never-say-die attitude. But they look completely opposite of the way they looked in the season. Also, I'm really tired of them shooting weakly from bad angles, or intentionally missing the net from the point. It doesn't work if no one is there to grab the bouncing puck. They're not just playing badly, they look like an entirely different team than the past month and that worries me.

I'm not worried about the kids. Datsuk and Zetterberg struggled early in their careers with their first few playoff campaigns. I watched them both get manhandled in 2004 by Regehr and Leopold (and we were the higher seed). Then they got stronger. Physically and mentally.

I don't really see a whole lot of 'blaming only Howard' for this loss like some are claiming. It's more holding him accountable for his mistakes.

 

If you're going to say that "other people shouldn't be blaming only one person (Howie), because the team as a whole is playing poorly and you're letting them off the hook."

Then you shouldn't turn around and say "the whole team isn't playing well, but I'm going to let Howard off the hook for his own contributions to this debacle and hold all of the skaters to a higher standard."

 

You're doing the exact same thing. There's plenty of blame to go around and EVERYBODY (skaters, goalie, coaches, GM) should be held responsible for their parts in this.

 

That’s all very meta.

 

You hate Howard. You set up permanent camp in this thread (the Howard = Average one)

So don’t try to wax intellectual, just so you can crap on Howard a little more. That’s not productive.

I'm probably the only one here that thinks Howard has been our best player through the 3 games. Yes he wasn't great in game 2, but mainly the first goal was the problem. Tonight is not on Howard, how many times do you have to rob a team for your team you not give you any goal support.... Howard has been our best player and most consistent. Just the facts... Everyone else has had a good couple shifts here or there and that's it...

If our MVP of this series was names today... It would be Jimmy Howard... The one guy everyone is blaming the most.

 

This is actually true. HOLY s***




#2514219 ADQF | Game 3 | Boston 3 @ Detroit 0, BOS leads series 2-1

So if Carey Price was our goalie, we'd have won two games by a score of 1-0, and lost the other game by a score of 1-0.  

 

Let me get this straight. His 2.5 GAA average behind a much better defence is a number far superior to Howard’s 2.00 GAA behind Kronwall, DeKeyser, and the four town drunks (although I like Smith)?

 

Or wait, could it be that le horseshoe (that’s french for horseshoe) landed squarely on Montreal and Price’s lap when Bishop couldn’t start and instead they got Gumby?
