#2639674 Larkin for ...

Posted by Dr Dubya on 27 November 2015 - 04:52 PM



Larkin for nobody.  I'd rather have 4-5 more Cups in the next 20 years instead of one in the next 2.



Uh.. Larkin for no one

Wow, you guys would prefer to just let Larkin go for nothing? 


Cmon, the kid's not THAT bad at playing hockey.

Hmm, I probably should change my sig......

#2639145 Byfuglien - What would he cost?

Posted by krsmith17 on 24 November 2015 - 09:36 AM

This is a Byfuglien thread but you certainly cannot be talking about Byff, if you're talking about them wanting Mrazek, Mantha or Svechnikov... Sure, they may want them, but realistically they know they'll never get that sort of return in a trade for a pending UFA... If Byfuglien is traded before the deadline, he will go for a roster player and a mid level prospect or pick. No one is giving up top players or top prospects for a guy that can bolt a few months later. So no, Winnipeg will not get a Mrazek type goaltender, nor will they get a Nyquist type player, or Mantha / Svechnikov type prospect... Not going to happen...

#2636986 Pulkkinen fined for diving

Posted by FireCaptain on 14 November 2015 - 12:38 AM

Hey, ease up.. sometimes, they really do get shot... ;)





If you're not selling a penalty as a hockey player then you're not doing it right. Tons for players do it. The annoying ones are those that make something out of nothing. Aka players diving like swans. That's what gets me.

Wasn't a fan of the line juggling, felt like it hurt us more than it helped.

in regards to the pics above, the red line is the same width as the red pole, which, BTW, is parallel with the red line....thus you can clearly see that the puck is well behind both the red post AND the red line.  As a matter of fact you can see the color difference on the ice of the red line and the puck fully behind it.  Fortunately this didn't change the outcome of the game for us, but I agree,  something different has to be done.  Whatever happened to the NHL putting the sensor chip in the puck? The chip would trip a colored light when it passed over the red line then another when it fully cleared the line into the net.  If the puck hit the line and came back out, the light (or indicator) would simply just turn back off.  Indicator on when it is crossing the line, goal indicator when it enters the net fully.  Simple.

That's assuming that the red line in parallel with the top of the photo. We can't see what angle the red line is or the other post so all we can see is the puck beside the post. There's a video that I posted that I think shows the puck in the net so there's no real need to argue about the photo, but it's certainly not a clearcut shot despite Bill's attempts to try to mock SDavis35. 


The other bit of common sense on this one is that goalies don't flip the puck out of the crease - they cover it or pick it up. If you flip it out you're just offering up a rebound. You flip it if it's in the net as an Oh f***!


As for the strategy of letting Mrazek see OV shoot - I thought it looked like that too. It could be a good idea - cover every other option and they'll go to him and your goalie's prepared. But....in Blashill's postgame, his criticism was that they gave up "way too many PP shots to OV" (paraphrase) so it seems that this probably wasn't the plan, haha.


I was a little rediculous for the Caps to keep going to OV in the same spot. I know he's one of the best goal scorers, but there was the one segment where he took 3 identical shots with identical setups in a matter of seconds. Everyone knows it's going there - why not switch sides or something, skate around with it, try to throw it in front. But, hey, it usually works for them.

I think Jimmy would rather flip burgers on your local McDonalds than take Babcock's orders again. But hey it's just my humble opinion.

LW Dekeyser is going to get more than 4 million per. My best guess is somewhere in the 6 million range. He is much better than KFQ and Ericsson and they are close to 5 as you said. DD will be our next big money long term deal, as he should be.

#2635191 So who were the Wings scouting ?

Posted by Barrie on 04 November 2015 - 03:09 PM

I would think it's advanced scouting. We don't have cap room to bring in Phaneuf's contract.
