#2682582 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by e_prime on 07 July 2016 - 07:55 PM

Did Helmer get a no-trade or no-move in his contract?  Wasn't really paying that much attention.

 

I was actually shocked that Nashville wanted a number one defenseman coming back the other way. They have one of the deepest back ends in the league and lack offense. I thought that Weber for Hall would have been a much better deal for both Nashville and Edmonton... and even Montreal...

 

What Nashville does get in that deal is exactly what Montreal didn't want... a player with personality.  Nashville not only got a number one back... they got a guy that will put butts into seats FOR YEARS because he's a superstar. 

Compared to Subban -- Weber's a cold fish, void of personality. 

...not even bringing to light the fact that Weber is obvious decline.

This thread has taken an arguably gross turn.

Pretty sure they arent carrying charts with them

Carrying charts with them?  Like on a clipboard inside their briefcase or something? Why would they do that?  Don't they have smartphones?  ...or a tablet?  ...oh, RIIIIGGGGHHT.  Dial-up internets and everything.

Well this is going nowhere. These arguments always devolve into an all or nothing approach. Throw in a lot of misinterpretations and you got yourself a show. This forum gets worse and worse each year.

...or jokes.  Don't forget jokes.

 

Sure.  There are certainly those that take the all or nothing approach to either stats or no stats and of course there is misrepresentations/interpretations of stats, just as there are for eye-ball tests.   Using everything that you've got to analyze your players -- everything from eyeballs to spreadsheets -- and using that analysis to win is how you reach your end goal -- the Cup.

I dunno why you guys bother with all the numbers and stuff when you've got two infallible, live action stat-taking, intangible-measuring, highlight-reel making machines locked up in your skull.  Flowcharts and spreadsheets?  BAH!

These stats are only meant to serve as supplemental information. It's not black and white.

 

These babies see in full technicolor and they wants to see a new shiny defenseman!!!

Thanks for this gem, frank.  You've just cemented your legacy as LGW's Don Cherry.

Can you actually trade for Stammer's rights?  He had a NMC for 15/16.  Wouldn't that be in effect until July 1?

...and why would he waive that NMC?  Why weaken a team you might end up or intend to sign with, especially now that players and teams can talk to one another before July 1.

Do the Wings really even have a rivalry with anyone these days or is just whomever NBCSN says it is on a random Wednesday night?




#2673383 I Hate Jeff Blashill because ...

Posted by e_prime on 24 April 2016 - 04:24 PM

Crawford is a circus act. I'd rather see someone like Ron Wilson if we're going names.

Ewww.

Anyway, we're not getting a new head coach.

 

I don't hate Blash.  New Head Coach trying to do the same as the Old Head Coach... same result.  Not surprising.

Zetterturd with the turnover.  

Yeah.  He's the worst, huh?

 

Edzo and his X-ray vision wills that puck into the net.  Meanwhile, Pierre calls him on his s***.

I don't think we look awful, and Philly is certainly playing desperate as we're barely giving them anything.  I say keep it up. 

Limit their chances, play the puck deep.

 

...but in the meantime, score a PowerPlayGoal!

I'm The Man - Anthrax

 

 

I'm on your case, I'm in your face
Kick you and your father back in place
Step up sucker, understand
Don't you know

I'm the man, I'm the man
I'm so bad I should be in detention
I'm the man, shut, shut, shut, shut
Shut up
