#2535714 Detroit offers D Raphael Diaz tryout

Posted by Rivalred on 08 September 2014 - 08:56 AM

Cleary was a former high draft pick who almost washed out because he was immature. Diaz is getting tryout offers because he has questionable ability. Apples and oranges.


Yet, both are still fruit


#2535707 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

Definitely not better than kronwall, and it's up for debate if he's even Ericsson level quite yet. But he's definitely going to be a top pair guy soon.

I am not going to argue semantics and how DD has played, but he is very good and if he grows more as player, he will give Kronwall a run in comparison.

Holland really needs to pull his balls out of his wife's purse going into this FA summer for once in a long time

Corsi stats prove smith is OUR BEST 5 on 5 buck mover and suggest that if he was given the same PP time as kronwall he would've had more points. He did have more 5 on 5 points.


I am about to take Corsi stats outback and take a huge dump on it

Do not know if this goes for everyone, but the reason why Johan leaves such a bad taste in my mouth and frustration is due to his lack of effort at times, and making comments such as "he wants to have fun" versus when he plays with focus and intensity, he is like a man possessed, and can change the entire game.

Maybe this is why he is criticized so heavily....

What does he have to sing though?


"Cry me a river" or "dancing in the rain" ?

#2522593 2014 SCF : (2) The Big Apple vs. (3) Hollywood

Posted by Rivalred on 03 June 2014 - 11:01 AM

If it were anyone but the Kings in the finals I'd probably be pulling for the Rangers, but now GO KINGS!
 
What's crazy is the Kings have already played more games than when they won the Cup in 2012.  Going through some of the best teams in the league in the process.  I hope they haven't used up all their mojo just to get to the Finals. 


Kings earned their place. This will be a very good SCF to watch

#2521897 Inventor looks to drastically shorten ice resurfacing time

I guess you missed the part about how it can't shorten intermissions because the cba won't allow it

Link?

I'd like to see Detroit try to move up in the draft to get a top 5 pick since we are in the first half of the draft and not at the end. Edmonton is looking for defensemen and maybe we could put a package together involving Kindl or Smith.


Legwands rights, Kindl, Tootoo, Weiss - let's get it done

He has his head down because he was shooting the puck and was focusing on the goal; what is he suppose to have, those side sonar sensors installed they have on vehicles now?
