#2263204 Johan Franzen Depreciation

Posted by dragonballgtz on 26 February 2012 - 11:48 PM

Would it be much of a stretch to say that Holland's biggest career mistake will be Franzen over Hossa? It hurts to think how good our top 6 would be with Hossa, especially given he only makes a million or so more than Franzen.

Big stretch. It was either Hossa or Mule+depth, which Holland with rather have a balanced team over a top heavy squad. Even with Hudler over seas for the 09-10 season we were still right at the cap. That extra million with Hossa would've meant more depth loss besides just Sammy.

Mule could be a 50G guy IMO if he played with passion game in and game out. It's like he has the Fedorov emotion bug.


#2256490 Rick Nash "available for the right team/price"

Posted by dragonballgtz on 14 February 2012 - 12:35 PM

I think getting Nash would have damn near the same impact of us getting Shanahan back in the day. To bad that a cap system is in place now, if it wasn't for it he would already be a Wings player IMO.

I really appreciated reading all this bidness about Nash, even though I'll probably never understand the numbers game. However, doesn't the fact remain that the Wings' biggest priority is a defenseman? What with Lidstrom's quasi-imminent retirement and Stuart's leaving for the West Coast and family?

Not to mention if Jimmy has another Vezina-esque season he pretty much will double his salary cap.

#2256315 Joey Mac

Posted by dragonballgtz on 13 February 2012 - 05:56 PM

Joey can finish out the year here but I wouldn't want him to be our backup come next season. He has played decent the last couple of games but his rebound control scares the living crap out of me. I believe playing in GR regularly has allowed him to find his groove unlike Ty. But will he be able to find it when he is sitting on the bench like Ty does for most of the season?


#2255719 2/12 GDT : Flyers 3 at Red Wings 4

Joey gave it right to him.

I mentioned the juicy rebounds that he allows to happen last GDT. The Wings defense cannot be there to clear them every time.


#2254355 Cleary out for about a week

Posted by dragonballgtz on 09 February 2012 - 03:20 PM

Datsyuk should join him. His passes lately have zero zip on them and you can tell that his wrist is bothering him.


#2252376 2/4 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Oilers 5 (SO)

Posted by dragonballgtz on 04 February 2012 - 11:13 PM

There were times in the first period that our guys looked like an AHL team. No chemistry, iffy passing, and NO idea what to do with the puck. And the five on three?! Downright scary at times.

Yep, Mule looks like he doesn't give a s***, the passing has been off the marks all game long, Z looks like he is skating in sand. Hell I've been more impressed with Homer than most of our top players. His passing is way better than some of our top wingers.


#2252367 2/4 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Oilers 5 (SO)

I think people are forgetting that Kronwall was standing still on the first goal scored while Stuart was out of position. And you all expect Ty to stop redirects so close? No one was even getting Gagner out the way. Let's just leave a guy alone who was dominate last game and is showing signs of doing the same thing tonight. Pretty stupid on the Wings part.

I would've cried like a little baby at the end of the game if I was one of those players.


#2249592 1/25 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Canadiens 7

Posted by dragonballgtz on 25 January 2012 - 08:26 PM

It's just horrible 2 were on Jimmy 2 were on the D. On that 4th goal he looked like he was not even ready for the shot.

Hey Howard stopped the shot, it's up to the defense (Kindl) to clear the puck. Howard is not to blame here the Canadiens are just making our defense look like a minor leaguers. Just pure dominance on the Canadiens part.


#2230574 Caps Fire Bruce Boudreau

Posted by dragonballgtz on 28 November 2011 - 12:36 PM

To bad they cannot outright fire Semin


#2228240 Crosby coming back

Posted by dragonballgtz on 20 November 2011 - 11:03 PM

I hope he gets (legally) freight-trained in his first game back.

I have no doubt that someone will take a run at him.


#2226316 Online movement to get Eaves on the PP

Posted by dragonballgtz on 16 November 2011 - 10:00 PM

At this point put Abby, Helm, and Eaves all out there while on the PP. I would rather see their crash the net style instead of this weak passing no movement PP we been icing.


#2225454 Ryan Miller's opinion on Milan Lucic

Posted by dragonballgtz on 15 November 2011 - 06:30 AM

Okay and for the millionth time, in the NHL RULEBOOK, they are not fair game. Period. Its really not that hard to understand.

Did I say they were fair game? I said they SHOULD be fair game.

My sentence wasn't that hard to understand.

Goalies should be fair game when they come that far out.
