#2518983 Now some gritty forwards.

Posted by Nhurdi on 02 May 2014 - 09:46 PM

No way in hell I want Diving Devin Setoguchi anywhere near this team. I still remember him flopping all over the ice that one year in the playoffs. It's been said before that he even dives in shootouts!


But some size couldn't hurt.


I'm in Vancouver and they talk about Kassian all the time on Team 1040 and I'm not sure he could be had for cheap. At least if you believe the guys on the radio that is. There was talk at length of someone trying to sign him and paying the compensation.

I'm not sure what it is with people on these boards wanting to pick up Vancouver's scraps. But I would pass unless it cost us literally nothing.

#2445248 Lineup Crunch: Who's going?

I blame you!!!


Best option would be for someone to get dinged up over the next 3 games and the problem gets solved for a couple of weeks.

#2425184 Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Posted by Nhurdi on 03 July 2013 - 12:09 AM

hmmm Cleary.


Henrik Zetterberg 14gp, 4g, 8a, 12p, +3, 8 PIM, 1 PP, 0SH, 1GW, 58S, 6.9S%

Daniel Cleary 14gp, 4gp, 6a, 10p, -1, 2 PIM, 1PP, 0SH, 0GW, 20S, 20S%

Pavel Datsyuk 14gp, 3g, 6a, 9p, +2, 4 PIM, 0PP, 0SH, 0GW, 39S, 7.7S%


I was all for letting him go before the playoffs, but given his performance i'm not so sure. Granted 3 Years at 3 Mill i'm not comfortable with but when it mattered only Zetterberg provided more points and only Drew Miller had a better S%.


I don't give a rats ass if we sneak in at 8th spot and he does f*** all if he scores at that rate in the playoffs. We don't play for Presidents Trophies, we play for the cup.

#2337192 NHL submits offer to NHLPA - **Suspension Warning Post #70 & #273*

Posted by Nhurdi on 31 December 2012 - 08:41 PM

First if your not logged in when you read threads the layout is all messed up.


Anyway's  did anyone notice the cap is reduced to 60 million the second year. With that in mind has anyone actually checked out capgeek to see how many teams are screwed. Minnie for example has 16 players under contract for 56.9 million. They get a buyout but that could mean alot of decent players available that year around the league. Vancouver I think is worse off currently.

#2215154 Redwings concession for moving east

Posted by Nhurdi on 14 October 2011 - 02:59 PM

This information was reported in a link I already posted weeks ago in one of the many other threads about realignment or the wings moving east. It was no doubt also posted by others.

Can we as a group stop making a new thread every time something is mentioned on this?

#2212634 Caps, Pens schedule benefit

Posted by Nhurdi on 06 October 2011 - 01:08 PM

I know this may not be a popular post but is there some type of control on any donations for the http://loveforlokomotiv.com/ or the one the Pens/Caps are doing?

We can all agree the plane crash was a tragedy but putting that aside here, we gotta think about this. In a time of world economic crisis they are asking we donate money to families of people who got to play hockey and many made a great living doing it. I can totally understand for flight attendants, pilots, trainers, medical staff, players and anyone else on the plane that didn't make a large amount of cash. But if I was to donate I for sure don't want it going to the wives of families of players that are already rich beyond what a majority of us will ever attain.

So I just hope there is some type of control on the donations. Otherwise good stuff.

#2209214 What can be done to go East?

Posted by Nhurdi on 23 September 2011 - 03:40 PM

I personally don't buy into that...The Red wings would be a solid team in either conference.

As for the long trips the players eventually get used to it during the reg season - although the playoffs can be rough.

Hard to say as well.

Since we fans have little to no say in this - whatever happens will happen.

My point basically was the fans shouldn't make claims regarding travel or just unsubstantiated claims like the one I did above. They are not based in any kind of fact and are mostly ones personal opinion. This decision won't come down to anything like that anyway's.

The move of the Atlanta Thrashers created some geographical problems for the NHL.

Commissioner Gary Bettman, according to one report, has a solution.

Bettman presented a proposal that would make the NHL a two-conference league with a total of four divisions, according to a report by Canadian media outlet QMI Agency.

Winnipeg will play the 2011-12 season as a member of the Southeast Division, which is where the franchise formerly competed as the Thrashers. Geographically, having a Manitoba-based team traveling to Tampa and Raleigh, N.C., on a regular basis isn't feasible.

Citing two league executives, reporter Bruce Garrioch said that Bettman's proposal, which was given at Tuesday's board of governors meeting, would establish four divisions: the Pacific, Midwest, East and South.

Each conference would have 15 teams, so there would be two eight-team divisions and two-seven team decisions under the proposal.

The NHL currently has six divisions -- the Northeast, Atlantic, Southeast, Central, Northwest and Pacific.

Also under the proposal, the Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets, who have been vocal about their desires to move into the Eastern Conference, would likely get their wish, according to the report.

Both of those teams play in cities located in the Eastern time zone, so a move would theoretically increase TV ratings and possibly attendance, as well help build geographic rivalries and cut down on travel costs.

Red Wings senior vice president Jim Devellano, speaking to Sporting News' Craig Custance in May, was holding out hope that an Eastern move could happen for the 2012-13 season. “Fingers crossed, toes crossed, saying prayers,” Devellano joked.

Other details of the plan: the top four teams in each division would make the playoffs and each team would play a home-and-home against teams outside their division.


Personally for me, the move to the east will suck. Living on the west coast will make it that much harder to actually watch my team.

Posted by Nhurdi on 22 September 2011 - 01:47 PM

I guess the people that FEEL like the Wings should stay in the West have never traveled back and forth to the West Coast. Jet Lag is a ***** and it makes you exhausted for days.

If we move east, our injuries will go down and our energy will go up. I believe it would improve our record by about five wins in a season.

Interesting, here is one of my own thoughts based on about the same stuff you base your opinion on.

If Detroit moves East they will become weaker. We will become complacent and won't work as hard. We will easily lose 5 wins in a season due to playing in a weaker conference which breeds weaker teams.

Detroit has been doing just fine in the West I'm sure we can all agree. Just thinking from memory we have had:

6 Presidents Trophies
20 straight Playoff appearances
8 Western Conference Final Appearances
6 Stanley cup Final Appearances
4 Cups

But that jet lag is killing us.

#2203686 NHL Research and Development Camp:

Posted by Nhurdi on 14 August 2011 - 02:52 PM

I like the full penalty duration.
I like no touch icing variation. If the defender is winning by the faceoff dot whistle, otherwise let it continue.
I like the yellow line in the net.
I like the new camera in the net.
I would want more clarification on the bit about goalies covering the puck outside the crease.
Thinner nets I would consider.

#2202095 Weber Arbitration hearing...

Posted by Nhurdi on 02 August 2011 - 03:43 PM

The Predators will have to accept the contract no matter the terms because by filing for club-elected arbitration, they prevented other teams from signing Weber to an offer sheet this summer but also forfeited their rights to walk away from the arbiter's ruling.


A couple other things in the article but it does clear a few things up I think.
