#2542463 Devils Sign Tootoo

Posted by e_prime on Yesterday, 07:01 AM

yeah we didn't need any of this kind of toughness on the team. Seeing stuff like that isn't exciting to us refined wings fans  :lol: :rolleyes:

I've never been so disgusted by such antics in my entire life!  ;) :lol:

 

Not really on topic, but I'll just leave this here as well --

 

Downie runs Nielson who unfortunately has his head down but, Hamonic takes exception to the vulnerable hit:

 

 

Both of these videos are the type of toughness and fighting that I still appreciate within the game...

and good for Tootoo for getting signed and keeping his spot.




#2540287 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by e_prime on 12 October 2014 - 09:00 AM

I don't even need Jeff Petry coming back in the deal.

If I'm Ken Holland would totally be willing to send Kindl of to Edmonton for a pick. Any pick will do.




#2539795 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by e_prime on 11 October 2014 - 07:34 AM

The Red Wings are certainly NOT going to buy out Stephen Weiss.

 

Why?

1. Forward Depth

2. Trade Value  (whether you personally think he has value or not, he most certainly does)




#2539757 Kindl on the block

Posted by e_prime on 10 October 2014 - 08:32 PM

I don't need detailed statistics to say that today he was the worst def on the ice by far. Way worse than Ericsson who made that turnover.

 

FANCY STATS BE DAMNED!!!   I GOT MY EYEBALLLZZ TEST!  ...and they say they were ALL HORRRIBBLLLEEE! 

 

Especially Kronwall!!

He didn't Kronwall anyone!




#2539716 Kindl on the block

While Ericsson did have that horrible mistake that led to Boston's only goal... he did redeem himself in the third by directly making a play that killed a good scoring chance for Boston. I pointed this out in the GDT last night.

 

It's so much easier to remember the bad plays over the good, but lets not pretend that game in/game out players don't make mistakes that sometimes lead to goals. That's just silly.

 

I'm in agreement that throwing out two veterans in favor of two rookies is silly as well. We're not so shallow on defense that we HAVE to do that... so why should we?  I want to see a rookie come up and get some experience, but not at the expense of games early in the season.

Remember guys/gals:  Sarcasm is my only true friend/coping mechanism. 




#2539681 10/9 GDT : Bruins 1 at Red Wings 2.

Posted by e_prime on 10 October 2014 - 08:40 AM

Nice analysis krsmith17... but we obviously won that game because Boston was playing on back to back nights.

Let's be real.  ;)

Franzen...finding ways to hurt his team every game.

Lefty... finding ways to complain about Franzen every game. 

 

... and he's the first star of the game.   :lol:

#2532687 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

James Mirtle @mirtle 1m

Was told early in weekend that Leafs would settle in $3.25-million range. Same source said Franson would then be dealt, so we'll see.

According to @THNKenCampbell, Ryan O'Reilly asking for $6.75 million in arbitration. Avs offering $5.525 million. One year award.

 

$5.525 Avs offering O'Reilly represents 15% pay cut from '13-14 salary of $6.5 million, maximum pay cut allowed under CBA.

 

Adam Proteau @Proteautype 3m

Ryan O'Reilly scored nearly 30 goals last season, and the Avs are offering him the maximum pay cut allowed under the CBA? #gong




#2530970 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by e_prime on 10 July 2014 - 07:03 AM

 

I don't think anybody is saying that all the young guys are untouchable.  But rather that they shouldn't be traded for peanuts.  Which should be obvious, except that it isn't to some folks. 

What a lot of arguing about trades and such comes down to is that:

Everyone has different ideas about what young guys are untouchable and which ones are.

On top of that, each of them are valued in different ways by different fans. Sometimes they are very over-valued and sometimes very under-valued. 

Additionally, sample size of performance with younger guys makes the valuing of these guys even more difficult, especially by armchair GMs like ourselves.

 

As for peanuts, I prefer lightly salted, dry roasted.  Yum.

A guy who is arguably better than Quincey just signed for less than 1/4 the price.

Process that for a moment.

Yes, it's definitely arguable. 

 

He's certainly has been a good stay at home guy... when he's healthy... but we don't need a stay at home guy whose durability is questionable at best. I don't care how little he signed for... we need a puck mover.
