Jimmy “Lost Boy” Howard looking pretty f******  awesome out there.

Howard looks lost right now.

 

Yeah I know. He’s really letting this all-star defensive squad down right now. Kindl would be a lock for the Norris if Howard didn’t suck so much. 




#2554090 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by rick zombo on 05 December 2014 - 01:26 PM

Hall should walk into Mac T's office this afternoon and demand a trade. It might be the best thing that happened to the Oilers in a long time. Would force them to act instead of pointing fingers at whos to blame. Sad times for Oilers fans. 

 

To Detroit.

Calling it now.

 

Weiss will win the Masterson Trophy this year.




#2553746 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Posted by rick zombo on 04 December 2014 - 03:57 PM

 

To be fair the 2005-2006 team has been blowing it in playoffs every year since 2002. 

 

When Bowman retired, we had a series of great teams and early exit stinkers year after year. It is when we finally got Babs things started to turn things back around for the better. We got lucky. The best coach in the business wanted to come here. Lets just hope he wants to stay. Because once he leaves, there isn't another Babcock to take his place. 

 

True this.

 

Babcock doesn't get all the credit though. Holland adjusted to the post-cap world more quickly and efficiently than most teams, signed Rafalski, and started to reap the rewards of shrewd drafting (Zetterberg, and Datsyuk).

 

Actually, who are we kidding. It was all Lidstrom. :lol:

Babs all cash in and getting a chance to choose from a lot of teams, where some are contenders. Also the guy wants a fair say in signing decisions if he doesn't get it here, super Mario is for sure going to provide that also. Personally I think he'll leave and by then the retool will turn into a rebuild (only one year too late for McEichel). People who don't like him will get their wish and he'll take home a few cups with the Pens or Blues

 

Yes. He could only win one here from 2006-10 when this team was great. But, of course, in your world he'll win at least THREE with another team.

Welcome back Nill, should be a great match-up watching Seguin and Benn well be fun

 

I could never understand how a Wings fan can get excited about watching players from another team. Does this mean you can't wait to see them play really well, score, and maybe even win? Because f***  that.

 

Maybe I'm crazy or super hardcore or whatever, but I want both Benn and Sequin to come down with rickets or scurvy or something before the game tonight. Or, if one or both happened to break a finger during warmups, that would be OK too.

 

In my world it's all about a Wings win.

I think they're going to wait till Blashill is overripe before calling him up

 

Agreed. They'll bring Dave Lewis back as a veteran stop-gap until Blashill is ready. Is there a coaching equivalent to a 35+ contract with a NTC?




#2553592 Jean Beliveau Passes at 83

Posted by rick zombo on 03 December 2014 - 11:25 AM

This turning into a pretty sad couple of weeks for hockey. Howe in bad shape, and first Quinn, and now Beliveau gone.




#2553550 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by rick zombo on 02 December 2014 - 11:45 PM

Contender?

 

After tonight’s loss to the Panthers? 

 

Con-TANK-der

 

edit: for extra ninjas ​which means I’m not very serious  :ninja:  :ninja:  :ninja:

LOL, diving Jimmy was diving.

 

Franzen sucks.

 

Agenda much? 




#2553243 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by rick zombo on 02 December 2014 - 01:45 PM

+ 1 for entertainment value.

 

Back on topic though, f***  Chris Stewart.

 

Also, I don't want to trade Pulkkinen either. Unless it's for Yandle.




#2553229 Prospect Joe Hicketts invited to Canada WJC camp.

Posted by rick zombo on 02 December 2014 - 12:15 PM

Dylan Larkin made the cut.

 

No surprise there.

 

Turgeon din't make it.

 

Honestly I was hoping for more NA representation than just Larkin and Hicketts.




#2553225 Abby Out 2 Weeks with partially separated shoulder

Posted by rick zombo on 02 December 2014 - 11:32 AM

 

 
 
I'd love to see Callahan up with the team, but that's not going to happen unless there's a roster spot for him. Can't imagine that we'd want to expose him to waivers when he needed to go back down.
 
 

 

Yep. Calling up Callahan and potentially losing him in a few weeks would just be a completely Nestra"silly" move by Holland.




#2553222 Alfredsson Set to Sign 1-day Contract with Senators

Posted by rick zombo on 02 December 2014 - 11:21 AM

Typical.  Another quality free agent signs to another team as a result of Ken Holland's inaction.  When will this joker's reign of terror end?!

 

LOL. There was no room for him because: Cleary (and also Samuelsson). :lol:
