#2510247 Would You Trade For Matt Greene's Rights?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 17 April 2014 - 04:39 PM

 

The problem with all of this is that we need defensive help now, not in 2 years time.

 

Who can we get that's better than Kindl and Lashoff ( and hopefully Quincey and Smith) that will sign here for no more than 2 years? Anyone of any major value is going to want a long term deal.

 

On top of that, And Mac just signed a 6 year/30M deal, so that's whast those caliber of D-men get paid now.

#2510210 Playoff playlist - song recommendations

Posted by Son of a Wing on 17 April 2014 - 12:53 PM

The other sports have rap... Lol

 

I'm not much of a fan of rap but Eminem does have some pretty damn good pump up/motivation songs and is obviously from Detroit.

#2507076 Lightning sign GM Yzerman to contract extension

Moving up would be, the WIngs creating a President position above the GM and move Holland up. This has been a popular move by many sports franchises to promote long time team GM's and get new breath into an organization. 

 

Devellano essentially did that and already occupies that position. He is around 70 though and I could see Holland eventually take his position.

People just need to not get so high and low emotionally with some of our players.  Everyone has ups and downs.  That's why there's averages.

“Ovi quit on the play coming back,” Coach Adam Oates said. Whitney “forced [the play] down the ice and just goes to show you you’ve got to hustle the entire time, the whole entire time.”

 

It's not even about being a complete 2-way player.  It's about just giving a damn...


Check out the video in the link on my previous post from the 24sec mark on.  It's just a joke when your team is fighting for a playoff spot.

Did you guys hear Ken Daniels quoting Babcock on Glenny:

"Other than Nick Lidstrom, Steve Yzerman, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Crosby, Toews, and Bergeron, Luke Gendening is the most competitive player I've ever coached."

 

I heard it that night, but I thought the quote was "...most dependable player." Either way, HUGE compliment. 

 

I recorded the game and remembered it.   He says this at 14:20 of the 2nd period.  This is word for word.

 

"Mike Babcock got our attention today when he rated Glendening one his top 10 most competitive players he's ever coached.  

 

I mean he's got Lidstrom, Datsyuk, Zetterberg...talking about guys like Crosby and Toews.

 

Here's a kid who was a walk-on in college, undrafted in the NHL, 3rd/4th line minutes in the NHL and ranking right up there with those future hall of famers.

 

Just the names he said...Yzerman, Lidstrom, Crosby, Toews and Bergeron........and Glendening....."

#2504202 Ovechkin and ES

Posted by Son of a Wing on 31 March 2014 - 05:08 PM

Teams are going to learn to keep him out of that left circle in front of the net during the PP and he'll begin to flop a little bit. As a fan, and I don't watch Caps a lot, it's obvious to me where Ovie is gonna be on the ice during a PP and that they are going to try to feed him for the one timer. I'm not sure why more teams haven't realized this and kept a defender directly on him on that area of the ice, he's good for 30+ goals from that spot per season. 

 

Because that would open up even more space for Backstrom.  If there's one guy in the league you don't give space...it's Backstrom.

Obviously not ... But if you we're gonna something like that now we have to lose one more good prospect now than we would of needed to

 

This thread already induces headaches.  That sentence does not help... :sleepy:

Not sure if people know but Tyler Bertuzzi is back from his serious injury earlier this season and is now leading his team in the playoffs.

 

3 goals and 1 assist in 3 playoff games so far.  I know quite a few (looking at you Richdg) who completely counted this kid out and wrote him off for nothing.

 

Glad to see he's back and seeing success.
