#2491026 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 05 March 2014 - 05:13 PM

i think everyone include I are not angry about legwand himself.

 

angry cause of what we couldve had for the same trade. bigger names

 

and what i think we needed more. DEFENSE

Healthy, yes, then we need Defence. But since are Centers currently are Sheahan, Andersson, Glendenning, and Emmerton I'd say that's a bigger need




#2482564 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Playmaker on 08 February 2014 - 02:45 PM

It reminds me a lot of Prince Fielder.  When he's doing well, he's a "big guy", when he's not, he's an obese slob that isn't committed.

I want to be clear, I don't think Byfuglien is the right guy for this team.  Having said that, I think that the weight and fitness comments are a bit off base.  Here's a good article Puck Daddy did on the topic of Byfuglien's fitness..

Also, I'd have to imagine that all the goals he's scored paired with his two all-star appearances and pivotal role in a Stanley Cup championship should probably dispel any notion that his fitness is somehow a detriment to his ability to play hockey at an incredibly high level.




#2437402 So....did Cleary just take Tatar's spot?

Posted by Echolalia on 17 September 2013 - 11:15 PM

 

During the playoffs, Eaves was playing excellent defense, grinding hard, and creating scoring chances. Cleary was falling down, skating slowly, and falling down more.

 

All of Eaves excellent playing didn't amount to much though, which is typical for a fourth liner.  Cleary, regardless of how many times he fell or how slowly he was skating, still managed to put up solid numbers in the playoffs, and as per his entire tenure with Detroit, better numbers than Eaves.

Eaves is an effective fourth liner, and I really enjoy having him on the team.  That I think everyone can agree on.

Cleary has been a less than stellar top-9 player, and I would even agree that he was a poor option for the top-six last year.

But we're still comparing a career fourth-liner to someone who has had success regardless of where he's placed in the lineup, and who he's playing against.  Even if he's doing his job poorly, Cleary still brings more upside to the team than Eaves, or any 4th liner.




#2423417 Edler is on the block?

Posted by nosyt612 on 29 June 2013 - 06:23 PM

As someone who lives in BC and watches a lot of Canuck games I really hope the Wings don't trade for Edler.  He does not think a good game out there, and he's been like this the past two seasons.  All the Canuck fans I know hope they trade him because he's so frustrating.




#2270920 $35 All YOu Can Drink in Tampa

Ok, what is a Blue Moon? (aside from dropping your pants in December)

It's Coors attempt at a craft brew. It's a Belgium white. It's decent if you don't know where to find actual Belgium whites.

Yeah, no. Say puck drop is 7:30 p.m. That means from 4:30 to 7:30 you can sit in the parking lot and drink until you can't tell colors from shapes anymore. How are you going to get any enjoyment out of the hockey game if you're so drunk your blood qualifies as a cocktail? As someone else alluded to, how are you supposed to get home? You're not going to be dead sober by the time the game ends, so you can't drive anywhere.

I don't drink, and have family reasons for why that is, but I don't have anything against someone who has a beer or two at the game, or at a concert, or at a restaurant....whatever. It's people who drink until they're falling down drunk that I don't like, because they're invariably seated near me, and not only do I have to hear them, I have to smell them, and that takes away from my ability to enjoy myself, and that's not taking into account everyone else around him/her either.

If you think drinking until you can't stand up qualifies as a good time, that's kind of sad.

Just to say, there's plenty of us who could find a "$35 all you can drink" and make it finacially responsible *and* not aren't drunken messes in public. 35 bucks at $5 a beer = 7 beers. Even if those are 12 full ounces (doubtfully) that's not that much to people who regularly consume alcohol responsibily. Hell, I've had 8 or 9 pints of beer today (Happy St Paddy's Day to all!) and you don't even have to smell me.

Oh good. Just what sporting events need - more drunks. Letting people drink themselves into alcoholic stupors is totally responsible, and not at all going to affect the quality of the game for those unfortunate enough to be seated near these people.

Oh good someone else bitching other peoples good time.

95-96 Владимир Константинов (Vladimir Konstantinov)


#2218862 What's up with Zetterberg?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 26 October 2011 - 10:14 PM

Need to remember that he's only getting older and he isn't going to age like Lidstrom has.


I wonder what the chances are of Z retiring before Lidstrom. Hear me out. We all know Lidstrom could play another 5 years if he wanted to, and I certainly don't think this year will be his last. Z is making 6 million a year for the next few decades, how long will he be worth that much? Say a couple years from now he simply isn't pulling his weight in the top 6 and he is demoted to third line center or something. I'm sure he'd be an incredible one, but for $6 million a season? Obviously when he signed his contract he wasn't remotely planning on playing it out. So if he isn't playing in the top 6, would he simply retire? I think the chance that Z retired before Lidstrom is pretty low (maybe around 20%), but I definitely think we could see Z retiring in the next 3 years, unfortunately.


#2217625 Back to Back Games

Jeebus, guys, it's not like they are racing bicycles 135 miles through the Pyrenees and then have to do it again the next day against guys who are fresh! They're top level world class athletes playing 12 to 22 minutes of hockey!

Posted by Reds4Life on 18 March 2010 - 08:45 AM

Midget? Are you kidding me? He is 170 cm tall (not gonna use the american s***ty system of feet and inches), that is not a midget. He is fast and great with the puck. It would be great signing!


#2215152 How Do You Feel About The Southeast?

Posted by Barrie on 14 October 2011 - 02:36 PM

I don't really buy the travel argument. Everything they have is first class and 5 star all the way, plus they take naps before the games. I think after a year or two, they're used to the travel. Also I'm sure the Wings when they're playing at the Joe don't get to bed until 3am or later after they talk to the press, have a post game meal, drive back to the 'burbs, and eventually finally wind down after the game.

I know a lot of the Eastern Teams travel by bus. Personally I'd find a plane to be more comfortable. When traveling by a bus you can get caught in traffic and road construction. There's no traffic jams or road work in the skies.

I think the travel thing is more of an issue with the team than players. Being in the East the Wings can save money on travel, that's what the team wants.


#2211886 Diving

Posted by jollymania on 03 October 2011 - 02:00 PM

Hmm.

I see an elbow to the head. Semin had just turned with the puck, and the puck slipped off his stick. He had looked back to pick it up, and was leaning back. Leblanc came flying in and nailed him with an elbow to the head. Semin was practically at a standstill due to losing the puck and trying to regain it, so he was a sitting duck. A guy who dives taking a headshot is not the same thing as a dive.

you high? that is not what is shown in this vid. and to the last comment, you're right, it is worse than a normal dive because now the guy making the hit risks getting suspended for a long time. Luckily for Leblanc, Semin's diving isn't in mid-season form yet.


#2211940 Brunnstrom is signed.

Posted by eva unit zero on 03 October 2011 - 03:49 PM

Fixed...

Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Hey Hudler, Goodbye!


Hey LeftWinger... just to let you know...

Brunnstrom has scored 19 goals and 40 points in 99 NHL games. Hudler scored 10 goals and 37 points in 73 games last season; basically 25% more in terms of points. Even if you take away Hudler's time with Datsyuk (4g-10a-14pt in 11gp) he would have 6g-17a-23pt in 62gp, a pace which would give him 10-27-37 in 99 games instead of 73.

In other words, a "horrible" season by Hudler's standards, minus the highly prolific 11 game stretch with Datsyuk, can be considered equivalent offensively with the best Brunnstrom has ever performed.

Sounds like Bruno could replace Hudler at something. But it's not scoring.
