#2456707 Lines Thread

Just imagine how much better we'd be if we just landed 1 of Erhoff, Wisnewski or Suter

 

Mainly because it would've kept us from signing one or more of Tootoo, Cleary or Sammy :)




#2456642 ****(Stuff) no one says about the Wings

Wings prospects are rushed to the NHL level.

SEND THAT GUY BACK TO GR

14 needs to go back to GR obviously.

Looks like we're at least getting a point!

 

Fixed :)

#2454144 GDT: Capitals 4 @ Red Wings 3 (SO)

Posted by greenrebellion on 15 November 2013 - 08:29 PM

It'd be nice if Babs would notice the chemsitry between Tatar and Franzine and put some loyalty in the pair.  I'm afraid he will probably just randomly juggle the bottom three lines with no rhyme and reason for the next couple years. 

 

Woah woah woah...I'd just be happy if Babcock stops benching Tatar.  Let's not ask for too much here!




#2454055 GDT: Capitals 4 @ Red Wings 3 (SO)

Tatar is the only guy on this team that creates anything outside of Dats and Z...and yet he was almost benched today.  




#2453827 Versteeg traded to Chicago

Posted by greenrebellion on 15 November 2013 - 10:01 AM

DId you guys think that maybe just maybe Holland can't participate in these deals because WE DON'T HAVE CAP ROOM.  We are over the cap when everyone is healthy, we are trying to shed salary not add salary.  And no, no one wants Tootoo so don't add him to a hypothetical deal.  He's cleared waivers, he has negative value.  And Sammy isn't going anywhere given his NTC.




#2453744 Cleary in, Tatar out against Caps

Posted by greenrebellion on 14 November 2013 - 07:28 PM

Yup, lets let a great prospect rot on the bench and instead play an over the hill guy who has no future with the team.  Unbelievably ridiculous.




#2453511 An honest question about Nyquist

Posted by greenrebellion on 13 November 2013 - 09:02 PM

 

Holland said the solution must come from within.

“That’s it, that’s the team,’’ Holland said. “We’re not the first team in the league to have struggles. There is no hockey store. It’s got to be done internally.’’

 

Facepalm.... there are such things as OTHER TEAMS that you can trade with... Essentially Holland is saying the team we have is the team we are stuck with and that the players just aren't playing well but he constructed a great team that should win if the players did what he payed them to do.

 

 

I'd like to see the entire team healthy simply so it forces Holland to make a move for cap reasons.  Would be interesting to see what he does when his hand is forced.

 

That said, Holland's quote shouldn't come as a huge surprise to anyone.  He's made it clear numerous times that in the salary cap era he believes that hanging on to picks and young talent is paramount...especially if you want to be competitive year in and year out.

Q makes Smith look worse than he is.  Smith played quite well with Kronwall.  Quincey causes problems for everyone around him with his malarkey.

 

Interesting point, I'd be interested to see that D pairing split up which I believe is something that this forum has been harping on for sometime.

Quincey!

What is it about the Wings that makes Quincey suck so hard.




#2451566 Tootoo Waived

Posted by greenrebellion on 07 November 2013 - 12:21 PM

Something important to keep in mind...and I'm not saying this fully justifies what Holland has done, just keep the following in mind.

 

This whole loyalty to a fault thing may have behind the scenes benefits.  The way we treat our players is well known around the league and may benefit us in the following ways:

- Cheaper contract extensions (Kronwall, Datsyuk, etc.)

- Hossa/Alfreddson signings...yes they reached out to us but did our reputation help us out here?

- DeKeyser - did our rep help us attract this guy who could've signed with any club

- Brunner - see above, yes we didn't keep him, but again we attracted a high value target.

 

If you are going to bash Holland for loyalty (and I do think he's taken it too far) at least give him some credit for the positives that may arise from it.
