#2484242 Official 2014 Olympic Hockey Thread (Admin warning #316)

Posted by rick zombo on 15 February 2014 - 12:50 PM

To all my American friends. Congrats on the win.

Before I continue, I'd like to say that although I'm Canadian, I have no preference as to who wins this tournament. There are guys I like on all teams, and guys I hate.

Two things:
1. Shoot outs still suck
2. If you're ready to give Oshie the keys to the Whitehouse for being good at shootouts, you had better check first to see that Toews is at Camp David for the weekend.

Wooooooooo.

 

Z will slowly have to gain back my respect since he dared to try to play in the Olympics - it could have jeopardized his playing time with the Red Wings.

 

I'm sure that other than his health and trying to carry Detroit into the playoffs, this is his biggest worry: gaining back your respect.

Regardless of whether Detroit want Quincey back or not, I feel like he wants to explore UFAgency.

 

In any case, if a defensemen is signed, it should be for 2 years. In 2 years one or two of Marchenko, Ouellet, or Sproul (or Jensen or Backman) should be ready.

 

My money is on Kenny signing a older veteran or two to a short-term deal this July. A Scuderi/Zidlicky/Boyle type guy that's not going to be looking for a 5-7 year deal.

I don't want to see Bertuzzi or Cleary play another game in Detroit.

 

Also, am I the only one dredding the return of Franzen and Weiss? This make the Wings slower and less engaged IMO.

Helm has to be one of the most beloved Red Wings forwards who absolutely can’t score, of all time!!!!!

 

Need to get one early-ish on Thomas.

Holland’s new gospel on the matter

 

http://www.detroitne...0120/1128/rss16

 

 

“I don’t know if there are many players on the market who we feel are better than (young players the Red Wings currently have),” Holland said.

 

 

 

“I see us going into 2014-15 as a young team,” Holland said. “Given what these young players have shown here, what they’ve accomplished in the AHL (winning Calder Cup), and players we have down there, it’s working that way.”



#2481171 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by rick zombo on 04 February 2014 - 11:29 AM

 

Sure, after Stevie is done here in a few decades :lol:  Maybe coach??

 

How boss would it be with Stevie as GM and Z as assistant GM?

I wouldn't mind Jarnkrok-Pulkkinen being next season's Sheahan-Jurco, if that makes any sense.

 

Totally.

 

But I’d settle for Sheahan-Jurco getting a chance to be Sheahan-Jurco next year without it being Sheahan-Glendenning with Jurco in GRs.

Jesus. I just found out Eddie Lack is Swedish.

 

Sounds like he’s from Newfoundland.

F*ck yeah, they're talkin' to my boy Backes about the Olympics.  One man wrecking crew on his way to Sochi!

 

That was great. “Repair the damaged relationships when it’s over” LOL

So....if you're Vancouver (especially a Torterella coached team) and you see the Red Wings down to only one goalie, what do you try to do with that one goalie?
Question 2: What should the refs be looking for?

It's not that hard refs, how are you this stupid?

 

Wouldn’t surprise me if Torts tries to jump Jimmy in the hallway during the 2nd intermission.

Good to see the striped turd dix are picking up where the other crew of idiots left off in Washington. 

 

That’s right, I said it.
