house party/street/prison language? Really?




#2608091 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 15 May 2015 - 11:37 PM

 

Watch his presser again it's clear that he wants a Yes man but I don't think Burkes son is a yes man.

 

I don't think you know who Sean Burke is...




#2606533 Players who might be available due to teams cap issues

Posted by Son of a Wing on 07 May 2015 - 11:00 AM

Public GM comments to keep the fans interested. Nothing more. They want to get better. Ok. What is better? Who are they going to get that is better than (pick your expensive vet) that is also cheaper? No one of course. The goal is to be a better team. That means you make moves, as in plural. maybe a Dman for a F or a F for a Dman. These things happen all of the time. Once they make their moves, whatever they end up being, most of us will be surprised at the moves-like we always are......

 

Well they could simply bring back Sobotka (cheaper and better) and deal Berglund for a pick or even waive him.

 

They're not trading their captain and leader. No chance. 

 

Much like Chicago isn't dealing Seabrook just because their feeling the pinch.




#2606074 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 05 May 2015 - 07:31 AM

Everyone not named Z, Pasha (we wouldn't get a good price back and it would be classless to trade them), Kronner and Howard.

 

Soo...trading everyone but Datsyuk and Zetterberg to purposely make us not competitive is not classless?   

 

That's a f***ed up sense of logic.

 

I'd love to see that conversation with our leadership group.

 

Just to get one shiny new toy. Selfish and disgraceful way of thinking.

You're right. Maybe it's the mood of the board of late, but it seems sarcasm is running rampant. Getting tough to tell the differance sometimes.


Ha agreed. Sometimes its just nice to step away for a bit and come back cooled down with a clear head.

Only way to get rid of Weiss's contact is to take on an equally bad one.

Am I sensing some sarcasm?


No sarcasm. Even with those contracts we're in great shape.


#2605805 Free agents this off season

Posted by Son of a Wing on 03 May 2015 - 09:42 PM

I don't expect any additions aside from a defenseman.

Franson, Green or nobody.


#2605803 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 03 May 2015 - 09:40 PM

Blame Holland? Absolutely.

He deserves a ton of credit for supplying us with the deepest crop of prospects in the league and great cap position.

Kudos Holland.

We'll be in amazing cap shape if we can shed Weiss and Kindl. Even if we can't its still pretty stellar.

Great job Holland.

Great job with the adversity Griffs


#2600011 Oilers win the Draft Lottery

Posted by Son of a Wing on 24 April 2015 - 01:10 PM

Shows that he hasn't forgotten the human side unlike Shanahan who fired 25 people without blinking an eye. With Nichelson and a new GM MacTavish will be on a very short leash, Lowe likewise.

 

If you don't do your job well or at all then you get fired.

 

This isn't the world of puppies and rainbows...




#2599912 Knuckles vs Numbers - The death of the enforcer

Posted by Son of a Wing on 23 April 2015 - 11:43 PM

The league is as watered down as ever and there's still no room for these guys...

 

Clearly they don't have anywhere near the skill to play in the league.

 

Lots of guys bring those intangibles. Lots of guys work their asses of.  Lots of guys put their bodies on the line.

 

They're not that special.  They're clinging on to a dying niche.




#2598231 ECQF : (5) New York Islanders vs. (4) Washington Capitals

Posted by Son of a Wing on 22 April 2015 - 09:31 AM

Dirty or not?  I say no.

 

I also really like Tom Wilson.

 

 

I didn't like the fact that he made no attempt to play the puck. Otherwise, clean for the most part.

 

As a defenceman, Visnovsky has to be more aware of the forcheck.




#2595230 Game Two - Honest Discussion

Posted by Son of a Wing on 17 April 2015 - 12:26 PM

So you thought Tatar and Nyquist looked good. They just didn't play because of match ups? 

 

Did any forwards look good aside from Datsyuk, Helm and Glendening?




#2595220 Game Two - Honest Discussion

Posted by Son of a Wing on 17 April 2015 - 12:08 PM

 

They have been terrible for over a month now. Agree or disagree?

And no, that's not why. Go look at everyone's ice time. Jurko got about as many minutes in THE GAME as them. Same with Weiss. Don't kid yourself. Babcock chose not to play them.


Jurko's screen on Datsyuk's second goal was great. Just saying

 

Regular Season average even strength min/game: 

Tatar: 13:43

Nyquist: 13:37

 

First game of the playoffs:

Tatar: 12:59

Nyquist: 11:07

 

It's really not as big a deal as you're making it out to be...

 

Helm also played the most of any forward (20min) and Glendening played 18min.

 

It was pretty clear the minutes for our forwards were heavily influenced by match-ups.
