#2419210 Cap might be worse than expected.

Posted by Mors on 11 June 2013 - 08:55 AM

I'll say right now that the idea of buying out Tootoo is completely unrealistic. Aside from the minimal cap impact, even if he doesn't play in the playoffs, there's a reason why Holland signed him to a 3 year deal. This team needs grit just to survive the regular season, and they're going into a new conference with some heavy hitters.

 

Sammuelsson is the most realistic candidate, especially considering his string of non-critical injuries that still managed to keep him out the lineup.

Hossa's embellishments are getting a little ridiculous...refs gonna buy this everytime?




#2397314 Samuelsson on the top line tonight - god help us all !

Posted by Mors on 06 May 2013 - 12:46 PM

I wonder if Tootoo was hanging out with White when he did whatever it was that pissed Babcock off...I feel like Tootoo is continually underestimated and underutilized, especially in a series against a bunch of scum like Anaheim.




#2395302 Danny DeKeyser suffers broken thumb, out for playoffs

Posted by Mors on 03 May 2013 - 12:44 PM

That's a shame, but I think after a summer of pro-level conditioning he's going to come back stronger and more prepared next season. I'm sure he's incredibly disappointed, but he's got a bright future ahead.




#2389389 Bertuzzi not returning Wednesday vs Kings

Posted by Mors on 25 April 2013 - 11:43 AM

Just saw on mlive, Bertuzzi has been cleared to play, but won't dress for tonight's game...Babcock doesn't want any line changes. The loyalty to Cleary baffles me sometimes.




#2388619 Bertuzzi not returning Wednesday vs Kings

Bertuzzi has a knack for coming in cold and scoring, there's no reason not to play him.




#2382928 Samuelsson

Posted by Mors on 11 April 2013 - 11:22 AM

You aren't him.  You don't know how bad it is.  Give him the benefit of the doubt.  He is a professional after all. And also we've seen how Cleary skates with a broken leg. It's not helping the team in any way. 

I'd be happy to give him the benefit of the doubt for the groin, the finger, the shoulder, the pec muscle...but I'm sorry man, you only get so many passes. He's contributed nothing this season except for a drain on the payroll.

 

I agree with the other posters in this thread though, if Babock wanted him to play, I imagine he'd suck it up. This ongoing rash of minor injuries tells me management doesn't care about getting him back into the lineup.




#2382896 Samuelsson

I guess this is kind of a needless rant post, but is this guy for real? I saw today that he didn't practice again because he has a "sore pectoral muscle." Have some pride man...there are guys out there who play with broken bones, I mean cleary basically skates on one leg. Step it up and help the team or good riddance.

 

 




#2382894 Official: Howard signs 6-year, $31.8m contract extension

Posted by Mors on 11 April 2013 - 09:57 AM

I'm not really against Howard, but I think a 6 year deal is too long if true.




#2379616 Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

Posted by Mors on 03 April 2013 - 02:37 PM

Have to say I'm kinda disappointed to see Pominville go to Minnesota...and Gaborik to the Blue Jackets? I wasn't expecting to Holland to do anything, but it still feels kinda s***ty.




#2375803 time to trade filppula?

Posted by Mors on 29 March 2013 - 08:45 AM

According to Khan, Filppula is looking for $5mil+ per year...if that's the case, they should trade him now while they can still get something.




#2359339 2/21 GDT Columbus 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by Mors on 22 February 2013 - 10:17 AM

Seemed like a smart play by Tootoo to me, why let Ericsson head to the box for 5 minutes when we're already desperate as hell on defense?...Tootoo stepped in, clocked Dorsett, and handled the situation. Dorsett is just embarassed, his comments to the media are indicative of that.




#2359278 Tootoo

Posted by Mors on 22 February 2013 - 07:24 AM

Columbus is a pretty irrelevant team — Dorsett should go get his nose checked out :baby:




#2352873 Franzen spear on Perron

Posted by Mors on 08 February 2013 - 03:36 AM

Perron dropped like a sack of bricks knowing he was going to the box for boarding, I don't even think the game misconduct was necessary, much less a suspension. I'd prefer Franzen stick up for himself as opposed to the usual...

Man did I miss having a guy like this on the Wings.
