No doubt.  Stupid suck ass media.  All they do is speculate and fear monger.  Not the kind of thing frankgrimes is into.  Nope.  No way.  Errr....wait

#2554909 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 08 December 2014 - 03:22 PM

 

Much of Detroit's success can be attributed to its stout defense: No team is allowing less even-strength shot attempts per 60, and just three have surrendered less shots on net per game.

 

This is a testament to their forwards' defensive acumen -- especially Riley Sheahan, Tomas Jurco, Tomas Tatar and Justin Abdelkader.

 

Among NHL forwards who have skated in at least 200 minutes of even-strength action, those four rank first, third, fifth and sixth in shot attempts against, respectively.

If you don't know who Nelson Mandela is then your education system failed you...




#2554802 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 08 December 2014 - 11:19 AM

sidenote: How the hell is it that Minnesota landed the Olsen twins and then Vanek and Pominville and STILL have more capspace than us and 23 other teams? Sheesh! I know they have more ELC's on their roster, but it just doesn't seem fair...

 

Actually it's completely fair.  Besides I'm not sure what you're so jealous of.  The Wild don't look great this year.

 

No doubt the RW's O is playing well. We are healthy and playing mostly at home vs. weak teams. Keep piling up the points while we can. We all know this will turn later on. We have a 7 out of 9 road game stretch coming up soon. can we play .500 or better on the road? If we do we will have a nice points total at the end of the year-baring major injuries of course.

 

Holy Hell...Cheer up dude!

Does anyone know where you can find stats like who on the wings has scored the most goals against a certain team?

I'm trying to figure it out with my buddy who is a stars fan.

 

Thanks for all the responses to my question. You all have been very helpful. =)

 

I'm going to assume no one knows... lol




#2553721 Are the Wings a Contender?

Dickie and nawein are right on this one. 

 

 

If a player clears, he can be sent to the minors, kept on the NHL roster or traded to another team.

A player who clears waivers does not require waivers again until they’ve spent 30 cumulative days on an NHL roster or played in 10 NHL games since they last cleared waivers. They can be recalled to the NHL and reassigned an unlimited amount of times as long as they don’t meet those requirements. Even if they’ve started accruing NHL days or NHL games, clearing waivers “re-sets the clock” as far as their waiver eligibility goes.

 

It has to be 30 cumulative days on an NHL roster. Days on a minor league roster do not count.




#2553264 Alfredsson Set to Sign 1-day Contract with Senators

Posted by Son of a Wing on 02 December 2014 - 03:47 PM

It's just so that said player can wear the jersey and skate officially with the team one more time and retire while under contract with the team that he spent so many years with.  Classy move by the Sens, the Bruins did it for Ray Bourque as well.  I don't recall if Gretzky went back to the Oilers for a day or not, but it would be a grand move for Detroit to honor Fedorov that way. He is already HoF bound, why not let him retire a Wing and complete his circle.

 

I don't think it's for the player at all and entirely for the fans.


Call it a sense of closure for them if you will...




#2553242 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 02 December 2014 - 01:40 PM

That's just how he is. He will never change. There used to be rules here...

 

 

Any opinion that differs fom his is clearly wrong and you're not aloud to share.

 

You're in a big puddle of s*** DeGraa55 and you don't have the shoes for it.
 
He doesn't want to trade Pulkkinen. Don't you think that is for our benefit?
 
You knew how this would unfold.  His mind is broken. You broke it.
 
And now... What now? Suspend him?
 
You've been pushing that agenda ever since you got here.
 
He also called someone "faceman". Should we believe that, too?



#2553239 Prospect Joe Hicketts invited to Canada WJC camp.

Posted by Son of a Wing on 02 December 2014 - 01:05 PM

Would Turgeon be trying out for the Canada or US team? I know he has dual citizenship, being born in Quebec and growing up in Colorado...

 

He would be playing for USA.

Hell, even a 37 year old Willie Mitchell is getting 4.25 million over the same term and signed in the same year.

 

It's market value whether people like that or not...




#2553073 Joe Hicketts

Posted by Son of a Wing on 01 December 2014 - 11:39 AM

 

Victoria's Joe Hicketts is the only defenceman invited to this camp who wasn't invited to the summer camp. At 5-foot-8 and 175 pounds, he's not blessed with extraordinary size or speed, and the 1996-born blueliner wasn't drafted by an NHL team last summer.

But after attending Detroit's summer prospect camp, and then getting invited to the Wings' rookie tournament team in Traverse City, the undrafted free agent sufficiently impressed the Wings to get an NHL contract. He's been an offensive dynamo in the WHL this season.

With seven goals and 36 points in 28 games, he leads all WHL defencemen in scoring, but he's fifth amongst all players in the WHL. It doesn't hurt that Lowry, who will handle the defencemen for Groulx, is Hicketts' head coach in Victoria.

For a defenceman of that stature in the WJC, Hicketts doesn't have the same dynamic qualities to his game as, say, Ryan Ellis in 2009 and 2010, but he has a scrappy get-things-done mentality and puts up points.

#2552001 Mantha getting closer.

Posted by Son of a Wing on 26 November 2014 - 12:48 PM

So I don't know if the site that you use is wrong or if you are but either way id be my left but that there's a lot if fights not recorded. To me any time two people are throwing punches it's a "fight" even if it's more of a scrum.



Edit: ya I clicked your link. Your joke of a site is clearly wrong...look at the link I posted with a fight from 2013. I'll trust my very own eyeballs where I've seen him fight numerous times or teammates interfere over your terribly wrong source.

 

Let me get this straight...you think Ovechkin is engaged in a fight in videos 2(Nash) and 4(Chara) that you posted?
