#2005495 Savard to waive no trade clause

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 June 2010 - 04:12 AM

vote is yes. I don't know what it'll take to get him here, some say Hudler, I say, this would ot be the first time we traded away a young man who had yet reached his potential and went on to be a very good player, that young man brought us Brendan Shanahan in return, so is it worth the gamble? I am not Holland, but I believe this team looks better with Savard on it...

I don't get what Kenny is doing with his defense. Sure, Kronwall hits, Stuart does a little, but 5 out of 6 d-men are softies, with captain nick leading the way. Tinordi is right there, this guy is gonna be a monster in 4 years, Sheahan is gonna have trouble cracking the lineup because of the of jam at center for the next decade. Oh well, we will see if Tinordi becomes a star and if Sheahan even makes the club in 4 to 5 years. Then there is another fubar draft I can hate Holland for...

Do we still trust in Ken Holland? There has got to be a method to his madness....

Stevie did Detroit a favor by not going D. Now that leaves another defenseman available for someone to pick instead of McIlrath, so he will fall to us!!!!

After watching the NBA draft last night and this so far tonight,I am convinced that *** Bettman and David Stern were twins separated at birth....

Please excuse me if I don't jump out of my skin because of this signing. Now when Holland drafts Hok Ptew tonight he'll say he didn't see the need for McIlrath on this team becuase of the recent defensive signings. I am so sick of all these stupid ass signings....


#2004288 Savard to waive no trade clause

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 June 2010 - 09:33 PM

Again you're clearly confused about how brain damage works.

Concussion 1: Damn man. Get well soon.
Concussion 2: This is worrying. Try to avoid contact with your head.
Concussion 3: s***, that wasn't that hard of a hit... how'd you get concussed?
Concussion 4: f***! Another concussion? Do you remember math anymore?
Concussion 5: WTF? How did you get a concussion opening a jar of peanut butter?!?

Every concussion comes easier than the last.
Go read up about Eric Lindros.

A guy who has 4 concussions in his history is an injury waiting to happen.

Franzen and Zetterberg don't have injuries that cause them to be more prone to getting injured. They've healed and are fine now.

Savard's brain is damaged. It will never be the same again no matter how long he waits and rests. Brain injuries are extremely serious and not even remotely comparable to a knee injury or injured shoulder.

But hey-- if I don't agree with you about trading a young, upward trending player for a 32 year old with a frighting medical history I must be a slappy. :rolleyes:

I hear ya man! I hear ya! But my hatred for Hudler runs too deep, I'd trade him for Ernie Harwell just to get him off my team...

Ericsson won't be what everyone think he will be and 32 year old is not that bad, you can get a good 5 years out of him.

Yes, but, we've got Hudler! Plus, Savard has had a concussion, he is mashed potatoes inside, don't worry though, Zetterberg and Franzen will NEVER re-injure their back and shoulder again, ever! They are Red Wings! They are worth $6M and $4M, but Savard is not, because it may cost us, GOD FORBID, HUDLER! Oh God, what a world, what a world! If Hudler is traded the Earth will surely open up and swallow Hockeytown!


#2004278 Who Do The Wings Draft in the First Round?

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 June 2010 - 09:12 PM

Well the man-love for McIlrath is largely due to the fact that the vast majority of scouts feel he's gonna go somewhere between 12-20 in the 1st round...He's also what this team needs; a mean streak on the blueline with a big frame, and not afraid to drop the mitts.

As a long time Detroit Red Wings fan I fondly recall watching these stay at home types capable of punishing those whom are foolish enough to park themselves in front of our netminder...I'm also tired of watching guys like Getzlaf, and Perrey get "their licks in" as Howard/Osgood attempt to corral the puck.

I myself am not so sure on some of these Russian kids; if it's not the attitude, it's the transfer agreement, and if it's not that - then it's the lure of the KHL.....I have a soft-spot for the guys on this side of the pond - especially north of the border.

Euro-Hater :ninja:

Holland will draft a Russian who isnt even sure he'll leave Russia...


#2004273 Savard to waive no trade clause

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 June 2010 - 09:01 PM

That's a retarded assumption.



32 years old. Has suffered FOUR concussions.

Hey Einstein, why don't we just sign Eric Lindros. :rolleyes:



Wow... you obviously have very limited medical knowledge. Google "cumulative effects of concussions".

Nah, we'll just bring back Jiri clucking Hudler, he'll bring us back to Stanley! How many back injuries has Zetterberg had? How many injuries has Franzen and Kronwall had? It's ok to throw all of our cash at them, but its not cool to trade for 80-100 point producer with LESS injured seasons than Hank and Mule, becuase Hudler can get 50 points? I may have very limited medical knowledge, but lets give $6M to a man with a bad back, yes Zetterberg, that makes lots of sense. Holland rolled the dice on Zetterberg staying healthy (which failed last season) so why not roll the dice on a 100 point player?


Here's the Slappies Lines

Hudler - Hudler - Hudler
Hudler - Hudler - Hudler
Hudler - Hudler - Hudler
Hudler - Hudler - Hudler
Hudler


#2004263 Savard to waive no trade clause

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 June 2010 - 08:40 PM

For a 32 year old guy with concussion problems? :lol: Savard is trending downwards and Hudler trends upwards. If the Bruins feel Savard was still such a key asset they wouldn't have him on the block when they clearly need scoring.

Also note that Hudler is 6 years younger than Savard and hasn't hit his prime (or struggled with concussions).

Funny,you laugh at a 32 year old who had a concussion for $4M, yet $3.9M for a 30 year old with a HISTORY of injuries is fine. Johan Franzen's cap hit is almost the same, he is only 2 years younger, but has had a plethora of injuries, yet its ok for him to be here? He;s never even come close to 100 points, he has never been healthy enough to! Everyone here holds the Mule on a high horse, yet bring Savard in here would be dumb? Too, Too Funny!


Johan Franzen Stats:

Season Team Lge GP G A Pts PIM GP G A Pts PIM
2005-06 Detroit Red Wings NHL 80 12 4 16 36 6 1 2 3 4
2006-07 Detroit Red Wings NHL 69 10 20 30 37 18 3 4 7 10
2007-08 Detroit Red Wings NHL 72 27 11 38 51 16 13 5 18 14
2008-09 Detroit Red Wings NHL 71 34 25 59 44 23 12 11 23 12
2009-10 Detroit Red Wings NHL 27 10 11 21 22 12 6 12 18 16

Marc Savard:

2005-06 Atlanta NHL 82 28 69 97 100 -- -- -- -- --
2006-07 Boston Bruins NHL 82 22 74 96 96 -- -- -- -- --
2007-08 Boston Bruins NHL 74 15 63 78 66 7 1 5 6 6
2008-09 Boston Bruins NHL 82 25 63 88 70 11 6 7 13 4
2009-10 Boston Bruins NHL 41 10 23 33 14 7 1 2 3 12

...using the Johan Franzen logic, losing Hudler for Savard is a No-Brainer.

EDIT: Oh Boo Hoo, negged because Hudler sucks, cry me a river!
