#2193832 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 01 July 2011 - 12:40 PM

Maybe he could have. My point is we should have let another team overpay for him, we can find some lesser known defenseman who would be just as good for half the price.

Like?


#2190144 10 Greatest Wings Draft Picks in History?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 26 June 2011 - 06:40 PM

Lidstrom, Datsyuk, Fedorov and Zetterberg, because they were all drafted in later rounds.

And of course Yan Golubovsky should be there as well. First round pick in 1994. :hehe:

I love Stevie, but Lidstrom has to be #1 for sure.

Getting one of the best defenseman in the history of the game, arguably second all time, in the third round at #53?! Nothing tops that. Especially when you consider the Wings really wanted Lafontaine in the draft and chose Yzerman when they Islanders took him.

He wasn't even the most valuable player on his line.

Yes he was.

I think Perry is a ******, but he's a talented player and was on fire the second half of the season, which I'm sure weighs heavily with voters.

He played every game this season, over 22 minutes a night, scored 50 goals and had 98 points. In the push to make the playoffs he had 19 goals in the final 16 games. Led the league in third period goals and road goals. That's not a most valuable player to his team?

I'm not saying he necessarily deserved the Hart, but he was absolutely the most valuable player on the Ducks this season and a large part of the reason they made the postseason.


#2185980 Wings unlikely to sign Osgood/Draper

This should make a lot of Wings fans giddy.

I'm not giddy about it, but I think it's the right move. Osgood has just had too many injury problems and they're right in that he hasn't been able to play a lot of hockey the last couple seasons. And Drapes is a huge part of the the Wings history, but he doesn't offer much that can't be replaced by younger guys who could have a future with the team.

It's more pieces of the 90's era ending.

My god. What a heartless team the Nucks are.


#2185285 SCF: Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver Canucks

I really want Boston to win, but if Vancouver wins the cup the only one I will be happy for is Manny Maholtra because he is coming back from that awful eye injury.

I'm trying to think of players on the nucks that I still have some respect for and would want to see lift the Cup. Malhotra is about it.

There's been teams I've hated that I didn't want to see win the Cup (Chicago), but I can't remember just being embarrassed for a team like I am with Vancouver. Diving, whining, biting. It's been more like recess than the Cup finals.

Man, I want Boston to win, but I haven't felt this detached from a Cup final in a long time. 08 and 09 were the Wings, 10 was hoping Chicago wouldn't win and hating Pronger's Philly. But this year, as much as I don't really like Vancouver, it's just a big...meh. You'd think a Game 7 Cup final would make every hockey fan salivate, but I'm pretty blase about this whole thing.

Any word on how popular this series is in the US, at least compared to the last few Cup finals? It just seems to me that this one isn't getting as much press as they have since '08.

Agree with this too. I want Boston to win because Vancouver has been such ******* this playoffs and a portion of their fanbase is so awful, but I can't say I'm happy to see any of the Bruins lift the Cup either, other than Thomas.

It takes a special kind of stupid to say something like that when you had let in 12 goals in two games. But then to come out and s*** the bed in Boston again is pretty hilarious.

What did Vancouver expect for $10 million? A goalie who can play on the road?

Is there a record for how many times a goalie has gotten the hook in the playoffs?

Was Luongo wrong?

That's the thing, you can criticize a specific goal here and there for Thomas, about how Luongo would've stopped it because he stayed in net. But then again, maybe he wouldn't have.

The biggest point is that as aggressive as Thomas's style is, it works 93.7 % of the time.



Edited for a misplaced decimal point. ;)

"I've been pumping his tires ever since the series started," he said, "and I haven't heard one nice thing he had to say about me, so that's the way it is."

So Ro8erto 7uongo's feelings are hurt because Thomas hasn't said enough nice things about him? God. What a friggin cryass.

He very well could add a Stanley Cup to his Gold Medal, winning both by being a decent goaltender with a great team in front of him.

The hit was to the area of the collarbone. It was the impact on the ice that gave Horton the concussion.

There's no way you or anyone can really have any idea as to what exactly gave Horton the concussion.

Bert got one by turning his head and hitting his chin as he ran into Heatley.

When you get hit that hard and your brain gets rattled that much, the hit alone and head snap certainly could've caused it as much as the impact to the ice.

My opinion is objective.

The funny thing is, I think you actually believe that.
