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 !

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.

#2257590 Trade Deadline Approaches

Posted by arag on 16 February 2012 - 11:06 PM

i like your updates. keep 'em coming!!

Was stuck in LA traffic and listening to hockey night in Canada. Bettman asked Kenny regarding deadline trades. Kenny confirmed that it would be a dept forward and or a D if he could find one. Those were his words " if we could find any"
So it would be safe not to excpect a big name player.

#2257382 Banner Hanging in Bridgestone Arena (Predators)

Posted by arag on 16 February 2012 - 12:27 PM

Nostradamus has mentioned the Preds in his 5th quatrain...

In the time of the Spring the booger eaters from the south drank in celebration as joy was seen from all corners of the earth. No neck humans (Trotz) looked up at the sky and cried as his army raged on an ice sheet with strange colours on it. The booger eaters ruled and showed passion and courage as they triumphed against the men from the city of the woman with the torch (New York). The No Neck man inspired many as his army swept through and torched their enemies with extreme vigor and mammoth high flying boogers all through the south as they carried a strange looking silver chalice held high above their heads for all booger dwellers to see..

That is some funny stuff !

#2257313 Trade Deadline Approaches

Go ahead NYR, trade for Nash. Cap hell.

While a blockbuster trade for Nash would make headlines, it might not be the best move for the Rangers, according to The Wall Street Journal.

#2257308 Rick Nash "available for the right team/price"

Posted by arag on 16 February 2012 - 07:28 AM

You can always blame a professional athlete for being lazy. It's their choice as to whether or not they give their all every night. If everyone followed your philosophy, no bad team would ever stand a chance of getting better.

I agree that Nash and everyone should show up to work every day. However some professionals: scientist, doctors , hockey players require encouragement and or motivation.
Nash gets none in Columbus. Sometimes you have to squeeze it out of them, sometimes they need a change to get motivated. By that I don't mean bigger paycheck.
That is what I ment.
On a personal note my understanding of professionalism is far greater than you may think.
Go Wings!
