#2560854 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 06 January 2015 - 10:41 AM

I just don't think Holland would offer up Ouellet or any of our top prospects.
 
Which is exactly why we don't see many trades...
 
I don't believe many teams are interested in a package of 2-3 underachievers and a 2nd.
 
Unless it's a rental/cap dump/+35er its going to cost us a valuable roster piece +.

Also I'm pretty sure it will be one of our young wingers going in a trade eventually. Simply a numbers game.

Aha, thanks for the clarification.  Admittedly I do not follow the Maple Leafs and their goings on.  Mostly because I do not want to be tarnished by filth. 

 

Unfortunately I'm surrounded by it  <_<

Good for the Slovaks to get the Bronze.
Played a solid team game and really sharpened up after that initial blowout to Canada.

Canada's looking better now.  Started slow.

 

Shots 14-2 in the third.  Slovak goalie standing on his head and playing amazing.

They were pretty legit penalties. USA is chasing.

Hoping Larkin can step it up in the 2nd and 3rd and come back.

Domi does look very impressive. NHL-ready I'd say. Same with Duclair.

You're not gifted anything as a pro.  Check out the Oilers if you want to see the product of that.

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.

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

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!
