#2554862 Senators fire head coach MacLean

Posted by rick zombo on 08 December 2014 - 01:12 PM

He must have told Karlsson to block a shot or something.




#2554860 Datsyuk NHL 1st star last week

Posted by rick zombo on 08 December 2014 - 01:11 PM

Seriously, trade him now while he's still hot. There's no way this team gets a shot McDavid while Datsyuk's still in the line-up. :ninja:




#2554856 Senators fire head coach MacLean

Weird.

 

Are the Sens delusional about what kind of team they have? They have a sub-500 record (counting SO loses). IMO, that's exactly where they should be, give or take.

 

I don't know if there's any coach that's available that could do more with that team.

 

Regardless, unless they hire Lanny MacDonald, fan dude there behind the bench/glass is going to have to shave now.

Tank it




#2554828 Jonathan Bernier - Nelson Mandela Comments

Posted by rick zombo on 08 December 2014 - 12:24 PM

 

Right.  Did he not google Mandela on the way to the event? 

 

Ohhhhh, you know what it is.  He probably forgot to look it up, and couldn't on the way to the event because everbody knows that smart phones still don't exist in small provincial Canadian towns like Toronto.

 

No. The logic being sold to us here by the Leaf apologists in our mix is that Bernier was way too focused on being an average hockey player on an average team to even think to google Mandela. Like, that guy's in the zone, 24-7. he barely has time to text or check his emails. He's probably never even watched tv or gone to a movie. Actually, scratch that. He probably saw Idris Elba play the gatekeeper in Thor because it's an action movie, but has no clue that he played Mandela as well.

 

I  don't know why we don't all just admit that most jocks are kind of dumb, especially Leafs. :lol:




#2554822 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by rick zombo on 08 December 2014 - 12:17 PM

 

Helm is playing top six winger minutes.  Boedker is a top six winger.  He plays the same style as Helm.  He's just better, younger, bigger, and more durable.  Why wouldn't he produce more? 

 

I could see your argument if I was suggesting we bring this kid on, reduce his ice time, and bury him on the third line.  But he'd be coming onto this team and playing with Datsyuk and Tatar (as things are currently).  That's an excellent recipe for offensive success. 

 

Think about this

 

Nyquist-Z-Abby

Tatar-Dats-Boedker

Franzen-Sheahan-Weiss

Miller-Glendening-Jurco

 

The only thing Helm provides that Boedker doesn't is the ability to play center.  And given how old and injury prone Dats and Z are, that's valuable.  But I'm increasingly confident that Sheahan can play the second line center in case of injury, and obviously Weiss can do it as well if he keeps trending upward.

 

I'm not here to bash Helm.  He's really come along after a slow start.  But I like big, strong, fast, durable, defensively responsible players.  I like them even better when they're all that and 24 years old.  I'd always trade an extra center for a guy like that. 

 

People love Helm. Fans love Helm. I love Helm.

 

But I still agree with your logic. I'll even go further and make the radical statement that Sheahan is, in fact, a 2nd line center already. Mickey Redmond and I agree that he's that good. :lol:

 

But besides all that, and besides all Helm vs Boedker rhetoric, one important detail is getting over looked. Phoenix would probably want waaaaaaay more than Helm in that trade.




#2554813 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

IMO, the problem with trading Helm is this: Holland will probably never get back, in assets, what Helm is worth to this team.




#2554809 Mantha getting closer.

https://m.youtube.co...h?v=0ZD3Xkp8tlA This was a thing of beauty!

 

Proof that speed and time-travel are connected. Because I have just seen the future of the Red Wings. :bye:




#2554807 Jonathan Bernier - Nelson Mandela Comments

Posted by rick zombo on 08 December 2014 - 11:29 AM

Stupid question in my mind. I mean, he knew the guy was famous and that's more than enough. Same thing here I know Mandela was famous but not why had to search it myself so a total nonstory.

 

It's like asking a hockeyplayer about a famous athlete from another sport. The guys should focus on hockey and that's all that counts, some reporters these days jesus..

 

Wait. Did you just excuse Bernier of his ignorance because you also didn't know who Mandela was? :lol: 

 

And this "hockey players" should only focus on hockey thing is complete crap, by the way. I'd expect these people to have, at least, a general f****** clue about what's going on outside of the sport. I guarantee that Bernier knows who Miley Cyrus is, for example,  FFS.




#2554799 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by rick zombo on 08 December 2014 - 11:06 AM

No doubt the RW's O is playing well. We are healthy and playing mostly at home vs. weak teams. Keep piling up the points while we can. We all know this will turn later on. We have a 7 out of 9 road game stretch coming up soon. can we play .500 or better on the road? If we do we will have a nice points total at the end of the year-baring major injuries of course.

 

Just curious. When you say "we", are you really trying to speak for all Wings fans, or just the ones that "knew" that this team was a "borderline playoff team" before the season started?




#2554793 Jonathan Bernier - Nelson Mandela Comments

Posted by rick zombo on 08 December 2014 - 10:43 AM

He's a hockey player, I didn't expect him to be politically correct and informed - some of those guys live and breathe hockey from the time they can balance on skates as toddlers.   He might be one of them.  I feel sort of bad that he got embarrassed (if in fact this did embarrass him). 

 

The man should still know who Nelson Mandela is.

Man Mickey loves him some Sheahan. 




#2554479 Mantha getting closer.

Posted by rick zombo on 06 December 2014 - 11:24 PM

Big game for Mantha and big game for the griffins. Seems like every game I miss Mantha has a good game.

 

Keep staying away  :lol:




#2554472 12/6 GDT : Rangers 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by rick zombo on 06 December 2014 - 11:02 PM

Helm ain't going anywhere.. No way Holland is that dumb, or is he!??

 

 

Helm is untouchable. He is the kind of player teams need to win. Holland would be asking Babs to leave if he were to trade Helm. 

 

 

He's the definition of a perfect 3rd line center. Don't move him, build around him.

 

I agree with these statements. The trade comment was just af****** joke by the way. I figured that was obvious even without the ninja face emoticon. Sheeesh.

 

That being said, I’d still trade him for a top pairing D man.   :ninja:  :ninja:
