#2377348 Lindy Ruff an option?

Posted by evilmrt on 31 March 2013 - 03:10 PM

The problem is not Babcock. The problem is the lack of synergy between Holland and Babcock. Holland doesn't give Babs the kind of team he openly asks for and needs. WTF do you think will happen in that situation?


#2377345 Mr Holland.....

the biggest issue i have with the holland critics is that most of them completely gloss over the good moves holland has made and only focus on the bad ones, in particular the hossa and franzen situation.

 

Holland never gets credit for giving osgood another chance after the lockout when everyone said he was washed up

he never gets credit for signing datsyuk long term right after the lockout ended. this board was calling for holland's head after that one. datsyuk is now arguably the league's best player.

he never gets credit for trading for brad stuart during the cup winning season. he turned out to be our number 2 dman for 3 years after that

he never gets credit for going out and getting rafalski the day after Schneider left back in the summer of 07

 

these are all moves that directly helped the wings win a cup but i never see any of the holland critics ever give him credit for these moves

 

These were all moves while Scotty was right there beside Kenny. Come on, it is weird, isn't it?

still on top?

 

the hawks haven't won a playoff series since their cup run

 

 

 

 

Yeah, the Hawks are a horrible team...  :eh:

 

Thank you, Scotzman. I figured they must be good since they broke that little record thingy.

For a young player who is described as a diehard red wings fan its taking WAYYYYY too much time to decide where hes going to play


Yep, I don't get the circus act when the other few NCAA players that were sought after signed quietly on Monday or Tuesday.

Neal - Crosby - Iginla
Morrow - Malkin - Kunitz
Cooke - Sutter - Dupuis
Glass - Kennedy - Adams
 
Letang - Orpik
Niskanen - Martin
Despres - Murray
 
Even if we make the finals against PIT, we can't compete with that.... although u never know these days


This is what GMs are supposed to be thinking about. On paper, we're no match for that lineup. Thankfully, weird things always happen in the second season. Still, a GM should not count on it and sit on his ass while others assemble teams like that.

Who cares, we have Franzen. 




#2374731 Sherlock - PBS's Masterpiece Mystery!

Posted by evilmrt on 27 March 2013 - 07:15 PM

Last I heard they are filming season 3 right now, it is set to come out Fall of this year. It will consist of 3 additional episodes, considering the length of the episodes, this was kind of to be expected. I'm looking forward to seeing more.



There is a lack of recent information about it, assuming it's because Watson was filming for The Hobbit but I haven't heard otherwise that it isn't still on the way.

 

Yeah, they're shooting Season 3 as we speak, and have announced a 4th season as well. Here's a pic from a couple nights ago where they shot a scene outside in Bristol:

If Wings don't sign him, it's going to be a show on this forum. *Grabbing the popcorn*


AHAHAHA


#2374329 Guy Boucher fired

Posted by evilmrt on 26 March 2013 - 11:51 AM

Sad... Murph was a goof, but he was our goof.  We make fun of his broadcasts a lot, but not because they're bad.  He's just goofy, and you kind of knew he was just being himself in front of the camera.  He also enjoyed what he was doing, and was enthusiastic.
 
 
One last "Wooo the fries!!!!"  :hehe:


Me thinks you got lost in the wrong thread lol


#2373889 Phil Kessel's sister can play, eh

Posted by evilmrt on 25 March 2013 - 07:51 PM

Surprised I haven't seen this around here, maybe it has to do with less ladies on LGW than in days past (a shame). Amanda Kessel, Phil Kessel's sister, finished her junior year at Minnesota with 46 goals and 55 assists: 

 

 

Amanda Kessel scored twice, and the Gophers breezed by Boston University 6-3 on Sunday to finish the first perfect season in the 13-year history of NCAA women's hockey.

 

Mira Jalosuo, Hannah Brandt, Milica McMillen and Rachel Ramsey also scored for the Gophers (41-0), who won their second straight national championship - and fourth overall - and stretched their record winning streak to 49 games. Their last loss was to North Dakota on Feb. 17, 2012, more than 13 months ago.

 

Now they've made a convincing case as the best team ever in this young sport. Wisconsin went 36-1-4 in 2007 and 37-2-2 in 2011 to win national titles, but never has one school dominated from October through March quite like this Minnesota bunch.
 
Kessel, who won the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award on Saturday as the top player in the country, added two assists. 

 

I guess hockey is genetic sometimes lol. 

 

Has anyone seen her play, and do they think she could play in the AHL? We've already had several women play in men's minor leagues in the past. 

 

She's even played on boys teams in the past:

 

The sister of Toronto Maple Leafs star (and former Gopher) Phil Kessel topped 100 three times in high school at Shattuck-St. Mary's in Faribault, Minn. Before that, Kessel played on a boys bantam team in her hometown of Madison, Wis., that won state and regional championships.

 




#2373773 hockey central mentioned wings should maybe pursue iginla and bouwmees

Wrong. Don't want Jerome. Next please


#2373769 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

Posted by evilmrt on 25 March 2013 - 03:01 PM

It would be great BUT. I don't see Babcock putting a rookie with no professional hockey experience in immediately.  I just can't believe that he would.  If Danny wants to play in the NHL immediately, he will pick a team that will be willing to do that and sorry, but that probably isn't the Wings.  In fact, I can't imagine that any team will commit to playing him immediately unless they have nothing to lose - no hope for the playoffs.  
 
Danny has a toough decision to make.  The AHL for a good team or the NHL for a crappy team.


Doubt it. He's not an 18 year old kid, he's 23.


#2372757 Wings remove Carlo Colaiacovo from injured reserve

Awesome. There is no reason the Wings can't give him minutes over Cola, White, and Huskins. I hope he adjusts fast!
