#2569480 What should we do with the Monster?

Posted by rick zombo on 09 February 2015 - 01:13 PM

I agree that it's great for Mrazek's confidence. However, I do think it's more to just wanting Howard to get a few more days of practice and conditioning in before he's thrown in again. I'm sure they'd rather him get his first start in over a month against the Jets rather than against a pretty potent Penguins team. Petr has been playing great, but make no mistake, it's still Jimmy's net.

 

For now :ninja:

Wasn't sure where esle to put this but Mrazek is staying up and starting Wednesday with Howie backing up. Per Khan.

"@AnsarKhanMLive: Babcock said Mrazek starting Wednesday. Howard is backing up. Howard might start Saturday."

Also I apologize for not being able to embed tweets and make it look cool.

 

Very wise decision.




#2569393 Babcock: "HE WINS, FULL STOP" - THN

Posted by rick zombo on 08 February 2015 - 12:24 PM

How I'm dealing with Babcock signing or not is my cup of tea not yours. I couldn't care less if someone who has half the prospect roster on his near untouchable list thinks. BTW. Since Babcock will 100% re-sign what are the lottery numbers going to be next week? Whether people like it or not fact is Crosby is the best player in the game..followed by Stamkos and Toews. The difference between being a fan and being delusional is sometimes a small one so I'm not the one who has to give this a rest. I believe whatever I want and in case of Babcock I believe it when I see it.


I'm having a hard time buying that you'll believe anything "when you see it". Considering that many of us are seeing obvious, non-debateable things with this years Wings team that you are not, or have convinced yourself to ignore.

Don't set yourself up for disappointment.. As much as Babcock would deserve it the Jack Adams will go to one of Hartley, Laviolette or Trotz. The good thing is it doesn't really matter Babcock is in the triple gold club and by far the best coach in hockey. Mr. I will not let him walk before making a significant offer. I don't care if it's 4 or even 8 million there is no salary cup for coaches. This whole thing will come down to 1 decision does Babs want to stay or coach the best player in hockey or work for Shanahan? Money will not be an issue! It's so funny reading leafs fans thinking that 4 mill would be too much for the wings how quickly they've forgotten that our payroll was higher than theirs

 

But. He already coaches the best player in hockey.

Are youf****** serious? :lol:

 

 

I KNOW. I can’t believe Doan didn’t get a star. I call BS.

That was satisfying. I’ve never felt less sorry for a sucky-ass team than I do for the Coyotes right now.

Holy crap. The stick work by Arizona on that shift by Andersson’s line. Unreal. Yet they call that “hook” on Nyquist in the first.

#2568950 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by rick zombo on 06 February 2015 - 02:38 PM

Am I the only one who thinks that David Clarkson might not be as bad as he's seemed in Toronto?  I mean, I don't think he's great, or worth his money.  But I don't think he's this bad either.  I think he's a good system player, and in the right system he's flourish again.  Which underlies a bigger point.  What kind of team does Toronto want to be?  Do they want to be a big, bruising, half ice team like San Jose, Anaheim, or Boston?  If so, keep Dion, JVR, Franson, Reilly, Clarkson, Panik, Winnik and trade or buy out Kessel, Kadri, Gardiner, Lupul, Santorelli.  If you want to be a skill team, do the opposite.  It's like the Maple Leafs are two halves of two VERY different teams. 

 

Yeah the worse halves.

Yup there pretty much screwed lol ... But I could maybe see them agreeing to pay like 3.5 of his yearly salary in a trade to just to get rid of him ... Don't see why clarkson would wanna stay there when he gets pooped on , on a daily basis by the fans and media

 

Then he shouldn't have gone there in the first place. I never feel bad for anyone that signs with the Leafs. Especially when you're a third line grinder who gets 5+M/per.

Darren Eliot, while a much worse goalie, is significantly better than Ozzie in every single aspect of broadcasting.  At one point last night, while describing Petr Mrazek's struggles controlling rebounds, Eliot suggesting that Mrazek reach out, grab the puck, and say "will you be my fried". 

 

I lost it. 

 

I remember that moment. It was great. Eliot looks like Bill Clement compared to Osgood.

So amazing.

 

And yet some people (who may or may not be religiously invested and who may or may not hate science) still think stem cell research is a bad thing.  :glare: 

 

It helps if your subject is Gordie Howe. The man's tougher than a boiled owl.

No way Jose.

 

Mainly because Larkin+ anything is alot to give up (in my opinion) for a guy who's contract is expiring after next year.

 

That's more than I'd be willing to risk.

 

Yeah I know, but you'd be getting two playoff runs with Yandle + Datsyuk + Zetterberg + Kronwall

 

I'm glad I don't have to make these decisions.
