#2089983 Flyers place Leighton on waivers

Posted by achildr1 on 03 January 2011 - 03:28 PM

Better then Howard...


Are you serious? Please, please, please remind yourself of the stretch run last year. Where Jimmy Howard basically carried us on his back. We wouldn't have made the playoffs without him last year, chew on that. His start this year wasn't bad either...sheez.

Put Jimmy on waivers and watch the ensuing GM on GM violence. Pretty sure Leighton goes unclaimed, but either way, pretty much no one will care anyway.

Pcik him up Kenny, can't be worse than howard/osgood atm.


You continuously out do yourself.

#2086619 Retire Osgood's #30?

Posted by achildr1 on 29 December 2010 - 03:52 PM

It's a tiring argument. But realize this. Before the team acquired Hasek, Osgood was one of the team's 3-4 best players every season from his sophomore season on.

His number should be hung up high in the rafters.


Yzerman, Lidstrom, Shanahan, Fedorov. You could argue about Vernon, Chelios, and Konstantinov being better during those years.

Try again.

#2081788 12/19 GDT: Stars 4 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by achildr1 on 19 December 2010 - 08:52 PM

This goalie debate is just rediculous. One of the worst tandems in the league? Take a hike. Mediocre at best? Please take your pills and go to sleep, hopefully your delusion will pas during the night.

Howard has had a bad month people! If you add his first month last year, he's had two bad months. The rest of the time he's been at least very good, sometimes great. In all seriousness, he deserved Hart consideration last year. Yet people like Mindfly think that a rookie goalie who deserved Hart consideration, was a finalist for the Calder trophy, and basically got us into the playoffs is "mediocre at best". Osgood has had more ups and downs than my toilet lid and will get blind love and hate from this community until he retires, understood. He is what he is, a good goalie who has barely ever been great on his own. That said, he looks to have actually put together a few decent games and may actually get his chance at playing enough games to get his groove back, the thing he whined about needing so much last year. If he gets it together and plays like we know is possible then we have one of the best tandems.

We have a very good young goalie and a 3 time Cup winning goalie as his backup, who plays better in the playoffs. We're fine. Lay off these guys, they're not Matt Stafford...


#2077082 Nabokov a Free Agent Again

Posted by achildr1 on 13 December 2010 - 12:27 PM

LouLam signs Nabokov to a 11-year, 1.2 billion dollar deal.

The first two years he makes 500 mill a year. The remainder is spread over the following 9 years at completely sporadic amounts. First two years are paid in scratch off tickets and monopoly money...coming from the KHL, Nabby never knew the difference.

If he plays 63 games in year three, the Devils will give him the Islanders. He will then have exclusive rights to move them to Quebec. He can take over as GM of the Nordiques as soon as he loses his starting position...

The Devils will glory in thier triumph over the leagues cap rules when Nabby's cap hit is only 17 pence a year. That is until Bettman takes Nabby's car, cell phone, and jock strap as well as NJ's next five 3rd round picks and Martin Brodeur's shutout record as punishment for circumventing anything Gary Bettman says is truth.


#2075131 Retire Osgood's #30?

Posted by achildr1 on 10 December 2010 - 12:51 PM

It's all up in the air, i'm not sure if they'll even retire Lidstrom's jersey... Stevie Y was a no brainer to retire, I personally think Lidstrom's should be retired though. As for osgood, maybe... but I don't think they will. Another question is who is going to take captain when Lidstrom actually does retire... i'm not trying to steal your thread, I just don't personally feel like making a new one for that.


Dude, lay off whatever your sippin on cause Nick is about as certain as the sunrise to be in the rafters. Were talking the best Wings d-man ever and a career Wing here.

"No doubt, no doubt in my mind"


#2068481 Ville Leino

Posted by achildr1 on 25 November 2010 - 01:33 PM

This is gettting a little rediculous now.

#1. Who cares? Honestly.
#2. If you could play in a city where there was actually something to do other than go to sports games, wouldn't you?
#3. Leino, like Hudler now, is a third line talent on the Wings. He means a lot more to the Flyers. It's a much better opportunity for him as a hockey player.

I don't think that was a bad comment at all or out of line. Good for Leino, he didn't fit here anyway.


#2067007 Dan Cleary

Posted by achildr1 on 22 November 2010 - 12:35 PM

So worried. So very worried.


For what? We should have at least figured that this would happen to Cleary before the end of the season. Dan Cleary plays 65 game seasons. Not his fault, just the way it is.

Taking that into consideration, Abby has 7 pts in 10 games. Might mean some more powerplay time for him.

Someone will most likely step in and contribute. That someone might even be LGW's favorite whipping boy, Jiri Hudler. And when he pulls a Modano and turns it around I'm sure most of the haters will fall in Lilja love with him and the hotseat will be someone else's to sit in.

Get well soon though, Danny

Yep.

Pretty much the same as, do Lions fans deserve better? I believe so.


#2061876 Eaves scratched tonight - Hudler top6

Posted by achildr1 on 11 November 2010 - 10:15 PM

Hudler is a good hockey player, period. It's been 11 games, he just came back from a year in another country, and playing in totally different rinks (dimensions). After tonight, I hope the drubbing dies down a bit. This is a guy that put up 57 points, before the KHL, in about 13 minutes of ice time. 13 minutes, seriously, thats like 1 minute more than Darren Helm sees a game. He dominated in the AHL, easily held his own in the NHL, and destroyed the KHL (what some would call the next best pro league). Babcock and Holland know what they are doing.

Hudler is not Leino 2.0, not even close. With that said, look what Leino can do with the right guys. I wouldn't be suprised if Hudler finished with 50+ points (in third line minutes) and had a plus rating. I'd also be willing to bet other GM's don't think he's lazy and he sucks. I bet you'd have quite a few GM's with their hands out if he went on the market. Unlike Leino, when he was traded, Hudler has shown he can produce in this league.


#2058676 Hudler is Lazy and he sucks

Posted by achildr1 on 06 November 2010 - 11:59 AM

Yea, I think 9 games isn't enough. Give it a little time. Last year I thought Bert was lazy, and he was, but he's tearin' it up. Huds has shown he has what it takes, and is still young. Chill.


#2055838 Datsyuk stay at home defesneman?

Posted by achildr1 on 01 November 2010 - 09:51 AM

Incredible. I might expect this from an Atlanta paper, but our central division rival? I know they know who Datsyuk is, he only dekes out thier whole team 6 times a year. This is embarrassing.


#2054845 10/30 GDT: Predators 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by achildr1 on 30 October 2010 - 09:13 AM

"cause we know Nashville will score four"

Lol. Pretty much.

When Ozzie starts, I expect no less than a three goals against. I always tell people, if the opponent has five, you know who started.

And up until last game, he used to blame everybody but himself for his woes. Drove me nuts. It was always that Babcock doesn't believe in him, our won't play him for three weeks straight so he can get on a role. Our defence didn't help him or our offense didn't score. His audacity was infuriating. But, I listened to the post game interview with him after last game, and he was finally owning up to the fact that he might be to blame.

On to the game. I think whatever happens will depend on Rinne. Suter and Lombardi are out. Their line-up is pretty thin to begin with. With Nashville, if they beat us, its usually thier goaltending or they just flat out work us. I would venture to say, if they beat us with four or more goals, it will be another couple bad goals on Osgood that is to blame.

Prediction: 4-2 Wings.

Lidstrom, Franzen, Holmstrom, Helm (open net)

Only 2 on Ozzy because I just don't believe in Nashville offence. Otherwise, like I said, 3 is my floor with Chris.


#2053310 Datsyuk voted best Russian player

Posted by achildr1 on 27 October 2010 - 11:33 AM

"Henrik Zetterberg does"

Nope. Nice try though. The Selke's and takeaways speak for themselves.
