#2524323 Shawn Thornton will not be returning to the Bruins

Posted by e_prime on 17 June 2014 - 09:10 PM


Didn't he score several points against our terrible team in that series, despite limited minutes?  


Our 4th liners are hot garbage, and people here are making fun of Thornton, who can actually make the games somewhat interesting to watch, unlike our 4th line of Miller, Glenfiddich and whomever.  

I hope he didn't hear any one making fun of him... I hear he's not afraid to fight.


Also, if Glenfiddich was on our fourth line.  I'd have that jersey already.  Goddamn that'd be awesome.

I'd settle for a Daniels, Beam, Walker... hell, even Powers.

Is it starting to become clear to anyone else that with the exception of some lame ass acquisition like Dan Boyle or Tom Gilbert we're going to have the EXACT same team as last year? 


All the resources in the world won't make a difference if there's no will to use them.  Puke.


Expect D and Z to be hurt again, expect the kids to have good but not great seasons, expect Alfie to be re-signed and then be hurt/run out of gas, and expect our defense to be poor again.  Lather, rinse, repeat. 


Did someone hack your account today?  This is the most negative post I've seen from you this off-season.


I'm worried.  Please let me know if you're okay.  ;)

#2524118 GM moves

Posted by e_prime on 17 June 2014 - 06:51 AM

I know they are just being used as examples of Wings players that have the toughness you're looking for but, those guys collected points and PIMs almost 20 years ago.  Lets not bring time-travel into the thread.


Even though the game has gotten bigger/stronger/faster, the league doesn't have a wealth of guys that have all those traits wrapped up nicely in the one player package.  Also, the league didn't have a salary cap so as coveted as those players were, even then, they were easier to obtain because all you had to do was PAY THEM WHATEVER MR. I WAS WILLING TO SPEND.

People are surprised? This will be the same story again this year as last.

Why so negative, bro?

Aren't they really high on him?

They may be.  I can see why.  ...but if they're unwilling to trade Hall, Eberle, RNH and MacT wants to make some moves, Perron may be tradeable.   Other than that it's Gagner and Yak that I can see as movable pieces.  I've no interest in Gagner and Yakupov isn't the high on my list either. 

P.S. Impressive Rant.

Don't encourage him.

Get him add Gazdic to the mix and the softish Wings are finally a thing of the past

:lol:  As if.  (...not that I don't think we're softish)


Honestly, both of those guys would drag down the speed and energy of our fourth line.

Would rather:  Miller -  Helm - Abby than  Miller - Helm - Gazdic or Thorton

#2524028 Jiri Sekac

Holland's M.O. is also to let players over-ripen and earn their spot on the team at training camp.

Who said he's jumping directly into the NHL?

All these guys are going to have to make the team through camp, you know that!!

So, don't get your knickers in a bunch ...and what harm is there in restocking our forward prospects? 

I mean you were all crying about Jarnkrok being traded, here's KH restocking the cupboards.


Sekac is listed at  6'2" 174lbs.


For reference:


Calle Jarnkrok - 22 y/o

Height: 6' 0" (1.83 m)

Weight: 188 lbs (85 kg)
So this guy, Sekac, needs to put on a few pounds. Big whoop. What Euro coming over the league doesn't need to?
He's also two inches taller than Jarnkrok.  So... ultimately bigger? 

Y'all are still mad only because you can't get the coolest name in hockey on a Wings jersey, right?

I know Williams is the feel good story, and Doughty would have been the "he's probably the best player in the world at his position" story, but Gaborik deserved the Conn Smythe.  He was something else in these playoffs. 

You can't give the Conn Smythe to a trade deadline acquisition!  That would just drive future prices through the roof!   ;)  :lol:

Have you watched any Rangers games lately?

#2523557 Trading up?

Posted by e_prime on 11 June 2014 - 10:05 PM

According to media reports and rumor sites, Tallon has said that Florida has received exactly ONE worthwhile offer for the 1st round pick.  I'm certain it wasn't from Kenny Holland.


Florida sh(ou)ld keep it and w(ou)ld benefit themselves greatly by taking Ekblad.

Problem with Quincey is they don't put him where he belongs. On the third pairing.

I'd put kronwall with smith or dekeyser(smith preferably) then the other with Ericsson and that's a good top four.

Quincey in the third doesn't bother me it's just him with dekeyser or smith that hurts.

I know you meant to say "on the third"  ...but Quincey IN THE THIRD is EXACTLY when he bothers me. 

Timely gaffes guaranteed.

Recap goes something like this:


Reporter: "Weisse says you had something to say to him in the handshake line..."


"That stays on the ice, if he wants to be a baby and make it public that's his business...."


Reporter: "The Canadiens have said that there has been some lack of respect..."


"Lack of respect?  What?  A goal celebration?"  "I don't know what to say about that."  "I don't have any comment about that."


"I don't have anything to say about that."


So, he has plenty to say in the handshake line... the freaking handshake line!!!   ...to a player that tossed everything that he had to say/give right back in his face, but has nothing to say afterwords.  Loves to dish it out, but can't take it.

So how are we acquiring a roster like this? Who do you give up for Burns and Wheeler??




I'm guessing he sent Weiss and Tatar to the Jets for Wheeler, plus Nyquist and Miller to the Sharks for Burns. (based solely on who he left out of his lineup)


Wait.  You guys are worried about pieces traded away and acquisitions, but you fail to see who your third line center is...   really?  REALLY?  Really?

This is true but you shouldn't take it so seriously. He wouldn't be the first POS to get his name on the cup. Hell, he had plenty of company just in 2011.

Not everyone can be a good sportsman.  There are such things as sore losers.


"Fatso wouldn't even shake my hand."


That being said, he's a cheap-shot artiste who doesn't need to be.

I wish he weren't such a slimy PoS and would just "man up" in defeat the way he does on the ice when he's feelin' top o' the world.


EDIT: Just saw Lucic's post-game, "no comment" nonsense. 

Can "give it" but can't "take it." What a friggin' baby he is. 

Such a sore sore sore loser.
