#2624521 NHL videogaming

Posted by Son of a Wing on Yesterday, 02:17 PM

For all those who enjoy the management of a hockey team, I'm genuinely surprised their is a bigger community for Eastside Hockey Manager. Especially since its gone on Steam. Obviously it's more complicated than NHL15 but is about 100x more in depth and enjoyable/gratifying.
Not to mention it's just $14.99.

It's kind of weird how personal some of you guys make it with the players.

Whether it's Howard or Franzen or Quincey.

When they wear the winged wheel I will always cheer and hope for them to do well.

I have a feeling this stupid goalie flame war is going to carry into every GDT all season long. And frankly that's a shame.

I wasn't aware Lebda was 6'1", right handed, and a somewhat physical player...

#2621058 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Jealousy looks so bad.


Wait so you actually think people are jealous that you know somebody who's associated with someone who happens to know someone else? lol

People are mocking you because no one cares but you lol

Franzen is a waist of a money and a roster spot. If he is in the lineup on opening day, we will be less some good prospects...and we would have wasted our time with our draft picks.  To lose any one of these players to keep Franzen here for the next five years will be a waste. What are you going to do when Frk, AA, Mantha, and Larkin are due up, do you still keep Franzen? Franzen needs to go now or lose the likes of AA and Frk for sure. You need to get off this Franzen love, he is done, over, not worth keeping, especially when it comes to losing valuable prospects. He was the wrong choice and he continues to show that he is horrible.  Sure, he had the concussion last January, but how do you expain the previous 5 years of floating around and s***ting on the ice? You cannot explain it any other way than he is done, over, washed up. Time to cut ties with him now, either LTIR or trade him.  No way is losing ANYONE to cap issues worth keeping Franzen for.  If Holland does this, then this franchise is doomed... f*** Franzen

 

 

Anyhow, if the WIngs plan on moving forward and not losing young players for nothing or being forced to trade them, there has to be casualties at the NHL level. Q, E, K and Franzen, and maybe Smith are ALL great candidates to move in order to secure the kids arrival the next few seasons...

 

Soooo you DON'T have a source or anything for this "Franzen was included in Phaneuf trade" non-sense...

 

If Franzen is healthy he deserves to be on the opening roster.  He's been consistent over the years for what his cost is and at most will cost us the risk to waive a Callahan/Ferraro/Andersson.

 

But yes that's a big IF.

4.6-5.2m for 4-6 years.


#2614715 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Posted by Son of a Wing on 15 June 2015 - 11:40 PM

If Cleary is re-signed he will not cost anyone a roster spot. He will be assigned to the minors and collect his promised pay cheque there and be glorified mentor for the young guys.

It's really a non-issue since we shouldn't even be that close to the cap.


#2614373 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by Son of a Wing on 14 June 2015 - 04:46 PM

Mantha.. Physical? Power forward? Beast? What's Frank smoking???


#2613480 The return of The Mule?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 07 June 2015 - 10:01 PM

So for all you guys who are so concerned for Franzen's health...If doctors declare him healthy enough to return and claim he's at no more risk of serious injury than many players in the league...You'll fully support him as a player?

Or are you all just hiding behind a shroud of caring?


#2613301 Time for an offer sheet?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 05 June 2015 - 09:41 PM

The fact that Petry is being compared to Hamilton shows just how little some understand the market.

Ufas are not comparable with Rfas. It doesn't work like that. lol

Well this makes Quincey's deal look not so shabby.


#2609931 Players who might be available due to teams cap issues

Posted by Son of a Wing on 24 May 2015 - 10:06 AM

Richdg, you realize its the media's job to create stories like these out of nowhere right?

To keep saying "You don't know what's going to happen" to people is getting old.

Simple logic can determine what Tampa will do.
