#2536525 Mantha's Injury

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 18 September 2014 - 02:46 PM

Someone needs to explain to me why some posters believe this helps Jurco's chances...?

 

It wasn't like Mantha was the reason Jurco will start the season in GR.

John BucciGRASS?

 

I like how he used the term "shout outs" as well :lol:




#2518667 scenario: if McLellan gets fired, bring him back as PP coach ?

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 01 May 2014 - 12:06 PM

Pretty sure our PP problems have a lot more to do with the retirements of one Lidstrom, Rafalski, and Holmstrom than McLellan. I find it hard to believe that Todd McLellan is simply that much smarter at organizing a PP system than Renney.




#2496125 Red Wings sign college FA Colin Campbell

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 17 March 2014 - 04:34 AM

No risk, all reward sort of signing.

 

The only risk is that he will count amongst our 50+ professional contract limit as an undrafted prospect who may/may not work out rather than a traditionally drafted prospect who may/may not workout.

 

Only those with unrelenting hatred of anything this team does due to the fact that we have fallen on hard times recently, bearing in mind that those hard times are consitent with those of every other dynasty franchise in the history of the NHL, can and will find something to complain about this signing.




#2479679 Would you be ok with this roster?

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 01 February 2014 - 05:29 PM

I'm still surprised at the lack of love Eaves gets around these boards and to a certain extent from management, considering they waived him. I want this guy to sign a deal similar to what Miller signed. Good on the pk, good skater, doesn't mind being a grinder, forechecks very well, responsible in his own zone, has the offensive skill set to pop in goals, good size, right-handed shot with adequate defensive awareness to play the point on the PP, and as we've seen lately he's one of our better guys in the shoutout.

I would like our bottom six to consist of a miller-helm-eaves line. They have been together in the past and I really thought they were great together.

Is the only knock on Eaves that he's not a prospect whom we have yet to lose our hard-on for based on unrealistic expectations certain fans place on our youth?


#2356519 Stamkos

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 17 February 2013 - 04:25 AM

I wouldn't be as worried about goalies figuring Stamkos out as I would be how St. Louis' sooner-than-later retirement affects his production. Obviously, Stamkos is the real deal, but St. Louis is the perfect compliment player for him. Those two have something special.




#2298235 Calle Jarnkrok - Does he have a chance to make next season's team?

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 30 April 2012 - 10:58 AM

Not to derail the thread, but the over-ripen strategy is something that I believe we will begin to see less of as the seasons go on. The main reason we had the luxury of leaving prospects in the minors for so long was because we could go out and have our pick of the litter free agent wise. Although we have a lot of money this summer, once the new CBA goes into effect (knock on wood), I do not see how we can continue to prolong the strategy of waiting until 24/25 years of age for our prospects to finally have more than a cup of coffee in the show.

Anyone else thinking this could be correct?

Opinions to the contrary welcomed, as always. Just sort of thinking aloud.

#2235201 Reason for not practicing for two days straight?

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 13 December 2011 - 03:26 AM

Finishing out the month with 10 games in 18 days, with 7 of them on the road could have something to do with it.

#2072142 Some hilarious Dany Heatley Vids

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 03 December 2010 - 12:47 AM

There really is no explanation for the Allstar reference. Just portraying him to think he's almighty and the best. Its not supposed to be some inside joke or anything. Gotta show my favorite one Allstar Heatley vid.



BY far my favorite one of him haha.

Ya, cause we all know that it isn't anything until it's on myfacebookSpace.... :puke:

Anyhow, nickname ok, but I have an aunt nicknamed sauce so it'll be kinda hard hearing this and not picturing him that way.
