#2268921 3/10 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Predators 3

Posted by arag on 10 March 2012 - 03:46 PM

Wings worked hard only for 5-10 minutes last night against the Kings. They should have plenty left in the tank to play for 60 minutes if they want to. Even with injuries the Wings are more talanted than the Preds. Hard work is going to win this one.
Go Wings !


#2268774 Smith/Kindl/Ericsson

Posted by arag on 09 March 2012 - 11:21 PM

I've never been a big Ericsson fan, but I don't blame Holland for his contract. It was based more on the over inflated market for guys like Wisniewski and Ehrhoff, than his skills.

Crymson already mentioned it: The market was weak and over inflated, Kindl and Smith were unproven, and Rafalski retired.

I agree. Every team has at least one player that they are overpaying for the skills and services provided. We are blessed to have just big E.


#2267152 Yzerman for another gold medal

Bring the Gold, to the Red White and Blue.

I love to cheer for Yzerman, Holland, and Co, but not when it's for Team Canada.

Well. Team Canada has some "Red" in them.

#2265631 Players you hate for being good

Don't forget Tie Domi ! Not necessarily a "good" player, but I hated him anyways.

#2264511 Post-TDT: Red Wings stand pat, no additions

Posted by arag on 28 February 2012 - 01:09 PM

I won't. He.could score 900 goals including the Cup clincher, i would still want him out....

Could not agree more. Hudler is a joke. Come playoff time he will be falling on ice like a snow flake. He will cough the puck up just from players skating close to him. He is slow and his accelarion is rediculous .
Oh well. Let's hope everyone stays healthy and plays with passion. If they o that, we will be ok.

#2260909 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by arag on 23 February 2012 - 07:45 AM

I like Quincey a lot, he's a big body, he can hit, he can play heavy minutes (25+ if need be) and obviously in all situations. I am positive he will re-sign at seasons end but if not, as he is an RFA we get compensation, likely at worst a 2nd round pick.

That is why I can't believe people are so upset about this trade. I'm willing to bet we traded a 1st for a guy who will be here as a 2nd pairing defenceman for a decade, sounds good to me.

I have a good feeling about Quincey too. Kenny said that he is not a rental. Safe to assume that he will be resigned.
Go Wings !

#2260859 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by arag on 22 February 2012 - 11:54 PM

How does his style of play (defensive minded or more offensive minded) compare to Stuart? Or is he more like White? I have not really watched him play, so I was looking for some input on his type of play other than just his stats.

Here we go.Thank you Tampa.



#2259580 Ty Conklin clears waivers, assigned to GR

Posted by arag on 21 February 2012 - 06:53 AM

Sure, you hate to see the guy lose his job midseason and possibly blow a shot at the Cup, but he's repportedly made over $5m throughout his hockey career. Any way you look at it, that's an awesome life to have lead. 5 milllllllion dollars! Damn.

Loose his job ? The guy was payed 750k. That is a little too much for a "great" or "cool" guy just to be in a team and suck every game he played, except that one game vs Avalanche. I think he should not play another NHL game if that is the way he plays.
Well good luck to him anyways.
