#2455738 Holland Interview

Posted by rick zombo on 20 November 2013 - 01:44 PM

http://kuklaskorner....for-ken-holland

 

10 minutes long. Worth a listen. Do yourself a favour, it's not quite your typical Kenny-speak.

 

Notes:

 

- he's not in a good mood. you can tell

- possible that Nyquist gets called up as early as tomorrow. "possible"

- says kids aren't the answer, this is a man's league

- makes a decent point: says look at Nyquist and Jurco, etc, they're generating points with tons of PP minutes which they wouldn't be getting in Detroit; says that's a role that young kids have to "grow into"

- when asked about FA signings was careful to point out that we haven't seen enough games out of the full team he built over the summer.

- ended the interview by saying: some of the FA signings haven't performed as well as I expected they would, and that's on me"

 

I suggest you listen to this interview before you start your Holland rants in this thread.

Colder than a witch's teet.




#2454768 11/16 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Islanders 5 (SO)

LOL. They miss the five Islanders on the ice. Then they call Ericsson for a borderline hook. Unreal.

Kronwall looks like he hung out with Rob Ford last night. 




#2453610 Patrick Eaves on Waivers

Posted by rick zombo on 14 November 2013 - 12:41 PM

1. Do we have to explain the Sammy thing every time someone is waived?

 

2. I like Eaves, but he's very replaceable. Just like Emmerton (who I also liked)

If anyone needs me, I'll be over on capgeek fantasizing about next year's team.

So. I don't have any huge issue with Filpulla going to Tampa. But it annoys me to no end that he seemed to shoot the puck and drive the net more in that first period then he typically did in any 2-3 game stretch last year.

 

:glare:

So far this season? I'm going to go with a healthy Bert.

Winnipeg eh? This should be a Riel good game. :lol:




#2450499 11/2 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Oilers 0

Posted by rick zombo on 03 November 2013 - 01:41 AM

I wasn't expecting much from a B2B game. Helmer looked impressive considering it was his first game back. The third line just rocked tonight. If there is a way to get Smith out of the lineup, then PLEASE Babs, figure that one out. Sammy proved that he is irrelevant on this team and  should be waived/benched until he agrees to waive his NTC. 

 

A healthy Ericsson would do it.

Well beat Vancouver 8-1 but the welfare flames will somehow destroy us

#2448678 Lines Thread

Posted by rick zombo on 29 October 2013 - 01:54 PM

Lines in today's practice:

 

Zetterberg  Datsyuk  Bertuzzi

Cleary  Weiss  Alfredsson

Tatar  Andersson  Abdelkader

Miller  Glendening  Eaves

 

Cleary got promoted. Obviously that's been our problem. Not enough top six minutes for Cleary.
