#2648902 Ericsson, our Giant Teddy Bear

Posted by e_prime on 19 January 2016 - 08:03 AM

I agree kliq. ...and for the record I wasn't trying to be contrarian. I just think there's a really really long way to go before we see fighting completely eliminated from the game.

As far as Ericsson goes, I'm going to reiterate that he needs to focus. Use the big body to muck in the corners, clear the crease, and keep his game as simple as possible. He's not a guy I want to see pinching in on the play or getting fancy with the puck. I also don't mind seeing him drop them every so often but I *do* like the fact that he often times just ignores the physical challenges and stares the guy down.

...there goes the topic...

RELAX

 

There's nothing wrong with a little dose of reality around here.

 

...and the fact of the matter is that there is no "what if" when it comes to Lucic.  He ain't available.  Not for anything.

 


Actually, I lied. I know exactly why it happens.

It's because these guys covet other team's star players that play a particular brand of hockey they long to see again in Detroit. They convince themselves that these players must be acquired at any cost (other than, you know, actually parting with the assets that would be required to do so) They then scour the internet for any tidbit of information that somehow seems to support their fantasy. Inevitability they become irrationally upset at Holland when he fails to trade rape the 29 other GMs in the league. Good times.

Best of times?  Actually.  No.  Worst of times.

LA is 1st in their division and Lucic is playing well there. Not sure why anyone would think he is available.

THIS.

Honestly, I'm waiting for Lombardi to somehow manage to void Dustin Brown's contract so that he can re-sign Lucic.

To get you have to be willing to give.  If you're only willing to part with the spare parts, you're not going to get a big scoring winger, or a top-tier defenseman.If you're not willing to combine quality player(s), quality prospect(s), and pick(s)... you're not getting Drouin, Byfuglien, Stamkos, Hall, etc.

 

Ladd would cost less.  Yandle would cost less.  Even then, people will be mad at what even Ladd or Yandle would cost.

People will be disappointed if those are our deadline acquisitions.  People will be mad if Holland stands pat.

Holland can't make all the people happy all of the time.

Oh Keith Jones and Jeremy Roenick are going to analyze some of the tricky calls the refs had to deal with this game. *immediatelychangeschannel*

No. Do not give Z a penalty shot. Take the two minute power play. Thank you very much.

I can't believe MDZ is eating 20+ minutes a night for the Flyers. Two seasons ago his career was deemed over by a ton of folks.

I too forgot that Okposo is UFA.  He'd be great otherwise.

Coincidence?  No.  Correlation is the correct answer. ...but hey, he's just an over the hill worthless scrub, right?

 

Oh... and this. 

Drew Miller has led NHL forwards in blocked shots past two seasons

Question. Would any of you trade Nyquist even up for Kyle Okposo?
Byfuglien plus Ladd or Okposo and our team is a legit contender.

Saw a lot of Okposo when I lived in NY and went to some Isles games, would take him in a heartbeat and I'm pretty sure you know how I feel about Buff, Kip.

Hey. If the league and refs are constantly conspiring against us, why is the turnabout not fair play? Also, you're not cheating the cap unless you get caught cheating the cap.
