stop calling him Mule, stop calling him Pav, stop calling him Z....jeez, these names are used so we don't have to type the entire name out. If you enjoy writing Nestrasil everytime you talk about him, go for it. I for one, do not care if people call him Nesty.

Nesty will be fine....I seem to remember a certain Nyquist not doing too much last season until January then he lit up the league.  Not saying Nesty is going to light up the league, but lets give him some time to get acclimated to the NHL.  I'd rather be paying Nesty his small contract for his production than paying someone $5.5M for he same production.  Besides, Nesty is an RFA this off season, you don't want him lighting up 30 goals and then have to pay him $4M as well as Nyquist do you? I'd rather him have a learning season in the NHL and then get a modest pay increase in the off season.  When Weiss returns, he is either going to bump Jurco (waiver exempt) down or Cleary, or he just may waive that NTC in order to get top playing minutes elsewhere.

Sorry Brant, for some reason I cannot "quote" a post and it slipped my mind who wrote that.  From now on you will be known as THE User! :lol: Just kidding!


SJR I agree! Smith and Gus will, but man that is going to make things tight! We got a few more kids out of options as well...another reason I sure wish they only gave Q one year and if they can somehow dump K's salary I will feel  a little less uneasy.

I was just commenting on the user who said put Franzen in and we will be dangerous.  I simply said Franzen would not make a difference when he comes back and if he isn't going to make a difference it would suck to bump a more deserving player out of the lineup. I guess the answer lies when he does come back if he can go back to what he was doing.  I hope he does.  He, Z and Nyquist were gelling together pretty good.  I will welcome that back as long as it doesn't screw up the rest of the lines.  Lets hope he returns and becomes the offense and the PP cure.  I hope he is, but I still am on record saying that he won't be.

 

Anyhow, lets not turn this nice win into a Franzen debate! :lol: It was nice to see our guys playing together and getting some chemistry going.  Still not impressed with E or K.  Q looked alright.

that is an example when the ref who was right there and clearly saw that there was no contact should be able to override the call from the guy 80 feet away.  It's pretty sad when Pierre even calls out the mistake...

Well...hate to say it, since the game should've been over, but Kronner and E weren't aggressive enough at the end there. Not their fault but, Kronner has to take that guy out, not just reach for the puck. Anyhow, unfortunate circumstances stole a valuable point from Detroit...

Nestrasil and helm on the PP WHY NOT USE A SEXONDf****** DEFENSEMAN. You know someone who is used to that position??? f****** A BABACOCK AND YET YOU AND EVERY ORHER GOD DAMN IDIOT WONDER WHY OUR PP CANTf****** SCORE. It's pretty ducking simple put smith and dekeyser together ALWAYS even strength pp or pk. Then out Quincey or kindl with kronwall if you don't want Ericsson there(pp only). f***

wow, you forgot Juckf****** Pott...

these line combos are killing me... I sure would love to see Nyquist up with Pav and Z. Put the kid line back together and put Abby on the third with Helm...




#2542887 Weiss

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 October 2014 - 05:05 PM

...at least he isn't playing Cleary and sitting Weiss. That would be the telling point there! I hope baby steps are what we need for Weiss.  If he could get that 50 point action going again, then that would be great! Lets hope we don't have another player that we keep saying "if he returns to form" with.  I think its obvious that certain player is really struggling to re-become what he was in 08-09, and I hope the same doesn't happen to Weiss. We could really use him...




#2542837 Buffalo to retire Hasek's number

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 October 2014 - 01:07 PM

Dom brought us that Cup.  I know we were star laden, but that Colorado series was all Dom, especially game 6 and 7 shutouts... well game 7 was ours either way, but that game 6 in Denver...all Dom.

 

 

Thankfully he didn't play for any poser team who will also try to retire his number "just because" in order to get in on the celebration...ahem, cough cough, Colorado, cough, Bourque...Thankfully Detroit isn't like that.
