#2520231 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

Posted by Dabura on 13 May 2014 - 01:06 PM

I feel like Subban Murray winning game 7 for Montreal would be the ultimate insult to injury. 

 

fixt.

 

If he can learn to behave himself on ice and not get rattled so easily, I would like him too. He's an awesome player, he just has immaturity issues

 

blah blah blah

I think the Kings are the perfect team for him. I'm not sure we'd be a great fit.

They look like a team that's missing their heart-and-soul captain. *cough*




#2519648 So what do we have to trade?

Posted by Dabura on 07 May 2014 - 05:46 PM

What teams need a goalie?  What do they have the Wings want that they'd be willing to give up?  Why would they trade for Howard instead of using a pick on one or signing Miller, Halak, or Hiller?

 

In a word, Winnipeg.

The only true untouchables are Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Kronwall. The holy trinity.

 

A rung or two below them: Ericsson (loyal, homegrown, new father, the Liv connection) and DeKeyser (could've signed anywhere, chose the Wings).

 

Beyond those five, no one gets tenure.




#2519559 Will Mantha join GR after the QMJHL playoffs?

Posted by Dabura on 06 May 2014 - 11:54 PM

I've been trying to put my finger on who it is he reminds me of. I think if Thomas Vanek and Max Pacioretty had a baby, that baby is who I'm thinking of.




#2519553 WCSF : (7) Minnesota vs. (5) Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by Dabura on 06 May 2014 - 10:39 PM

Wild flip the script, explode for four goals in the third period.

 

LOVE IT!


Unfortunately, this means Chicago's actually gonna try now.

Their GM knows how to build a team and make proper trade deadline acquisitions.

 

The Vanek deal probably saved his skin. He wasn't exactly the most popular guy in Montreal for most of the regular season.

Cleary - Glendening - Mantha

Danny Bylsma. Danny O'Halloran. Kristopher Letang.

 

Pierre is feelin' it tonight. He's in the zone.




#2519240 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Dabura on 05 May 2014 - 09:03 AM

If we swap Q and Lashoff with XO and Marchenko, we'll see a difference.  Both are steady Dmen that make a good 1st pass.  Q's 1st pass is usually to the other team, and Lashoff was exposed badly this season when he had to play more minutes.  I still think that Ouellet is our best D prospect overall.

 

I don't mean to diss what we've got on the farm. I just want that top-four guy, who we should've added the moment Lids said goodbye but has instead been put off because something something you can't replace Nick Lidstrom something something there's no hockey store something something a trade requires two teams something something we're not going to move top prospects something something Colaiacovo Quincey something something DeKeyser is lost forever with a broken finger something something Ericsson is lost forever with a broken finger something something...




#2519194 WCSF : (6) Los Angeles Cartmans vs. (1) Coach Bombay and the Quacks

Posted by Dabura on 04 May 2014 - 07:25 PM

yeah i wouldve took gaborik over legwand. 

 

I love him on the Kings. He doesn't have to be The Guy, he can just be himself, play his game, no pressure to Be Great every night.

Ducks were floating on the play that led to the goal. Sweet goal by Gabs.

 

I really don't mind who advances here. 

 

I want the Kings to advance. Because I like them, but more because I think they'd be the tougher matchup for the Blackhawks, who must. not. repeat.

Agreed.  That's my point.  Our team doesn't maximize offensive talent because we don't have the philosophy or system to do so.  Load the team up with offensively talented players and they'll all factor into each other's production.  It's no secret that Datsyuk's two best offensive years were when he had highly talented wingers to pass to.  It's also no secret that Zetterberg's best offensive year was when he was the one "being passed to".  If you're not willing to get those types of guys, or play those types of guys, then you're not going to optimize offensive potential, which is exactly the point I'm trying to make.  Doesn't mean you can't win, just means you better win the New Jersey way.

 

Semantics, probably, but I'd say it's more personnel (and injuries) than philosophy/systems. We're built for a skilled possession system, but we've lost our two engines in Lidstrom and Rafalski, and only getting half seasons from Datsyuk and Zetterberg didn't help. Plus, Quincey. And Kindl. And Lashoff.

 

But it seems like we're mostly on the same page there. Basically, we need moar skillz.

Nabokov is, like, 70 years old.

 

Ken Holland is so turned on right now.
