#2615903 OT Changes

Posted by rick zombo on 24 June 2015 - 10:45 AM

Glad Babcock's gone.

 

I don't think I could watch Miller-Glendenning-Ericsson for two and a half minutes of OT.

You just don't get it.  Because you're part of the PC police and also because you want hockey to become the same thing as women's soccer (which is significantly tougher than Men's soccer BTW).  Admit it. 

 

Flower Power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Since this team needs some toughness and size, I truly believe that Kenny will sign Hayley Wickenheiser... He will get his ideal power forward

 

Because the Wings are so soft that even a women would toughen them up. Hardy Har.

 

Sports jokes that connect the perception of a weak athlete to a women are soooooooo funny. :rolleyes:




#2615730 Granato possibly renegotiating contract with Wings

Posted by rick zombo on 23 June 2015 - 10:02 AM

Waitttttt I thought for certain Granato was the PP man?

 

That was Hiller. He took that  s***  with him to Toronto. I think that's actually of photo of him in your avatar, no?

Just don't be disappointed when we don't sign or trade for anyone..

 

Hell, I'll be happy if they promote the right prospects from within the organization. Just give Marchenko, Ouellet, Pulkinnen, and Ferraro a real chance.

Forwards are expected to play defense regardless of the talent level of the D.

Free agents typically get more than they're necessarily worth now. It's a fact of life in the new NHL.

 

Exactly. If everyone's "overpaying", then no one really is, relatively speaking. It's not like Franson's going to sign for 4M/per while Green goes for 6M/per. If you want to improve a team, especially the D, you have to the big money for guys like Niskanen, Stralman, Green, etc.

The secret is only overpaying for the right guys.  Nobody on the market now is worth overpaying.


It's impossible to overpay for the right guys, or they wouldn't be "the right guys". For example, how can anyone say that the Hawks overpaid for Vermette? He was "the right guy" for them. You don't overpay for those guys. You just pay.

You only overpay for the wrong guys. See: Detroit Red Wings and Stephen Weiss.


#2615487 Players who might be available due to teams cap issues

Posted by rick zombo on 20 June 2015 - 03:09 PM

Hawks want a 1st + a top prospect + a top six forward on an entry level contract.

If any GM gifts them this I will make it my personal mission to hunt them down and kick them in the Ballz.

No NHL club should be doing the Hawks any favours at all.


#2615352 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Posted by rick zombo on 19 June 2015 - 04:09 PM

Wings likely to make a deal on draft day.


Yeah. I'm counting on them to draft some players and that's about it. Unless you can provide a link or something that says otherwise?

God I hope he signs elsewhere soon otherwise I can already predict the July 1 first transaction this season

 

Kopecky would be a great signing. But not for a penny more than $675,000.




#2615245 The Bowman Effect

You want to land the best coach? You better have a good team.

 

If you're the best coach, you want to coach the best team.

#2615113 Jets re-sign Anthony Peluso for only 675.000 AAV (2 years)

Posted by rick zombo on 18 June 2015 - 02:14 PM

At least a few people understand the role of a fourth liner. But I'm not surprised the usual flower power fans don't.

I'd trade Anderson and Miller every time for one Peluso and his bargain of a cap hit. So what if he plays 6 minutes a night instead of 8 ..

 

Awesome. Why don't you explain your definition of a 4th liner to Stan Bowman or Steve Yzerman? You know, the GMs of the two teams that played for the Stanley Cup. I'm sure they'd love to hear your opinion. That's if you can catch them when they're not busy making hemp bracelets and smoking grass. Peace man. Groovy peace.




#2615038 Jets re-sign Anthony Peluso for only 675.000 AAV (2 years)

Posted by rick zombo on 18 June 2015 - 08:33 AM

Guess it's safe to say Winnipeg, Blues are now having the toughest 4 lines in the league...good luck trying to run the stars against them.

 

Gee, maybe one of these teams will make it out of the first round next year.




#2615004 Jeff Blashill named 27th head coach in Red Wings history

Posted by rick zombo on 17 June 2015 - 10:36 PM

With Chelios out, you'd have to think it will Granato and Knuble.
