#2260498 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 22 February 2012 - 12:53 AM

I'm sorry you can not understand my frustration of the fact our GM waived this guy for nothing just to turn around and pay a 1st rounder to get him back.

But I'm glad everything is sunshine and lolipops for ya :).

I understand a bit and it frustrates me too, but st the end of the day a player needs ice time to develop. 3 years ago would you slot him before lids, rafalski, Stuart, kronwall? We couldn't give him the ice time and he was not the player he is now. I know it sucks but we basically gave up a pick for someone to develop him for us and give him 20+ minutes a night... Something we never could and still will struggle to give him. Quincey would not be the player he is today if he remained in our system. I firmly believe that.

I look at it this way, Detroit couldn't give him the ice time so they paid a 26-30 overall pick for someone to give him the ice time and help him develop. At 26 he is going to start playing his best hockey, I hope.


#2259728 Datsyuk out at least 2 weeks

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 21 February 2012 - 01:32 PM

Datsyuk probably suffered the same injury I did. It will take minor scope surgery and I was back to full tilt in two weeks. I played on mine for 2 months before the surgery.. I was on crutches for a day and was skating a couple days after. Just took two weeks to feel fully comfortable

#2257212 Rick Nash "available for the right team/price"

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 15 February 2012 - 03:19 PM


I forgot who posted it but someone Saying bout giving up a star which I disagree about.... I don't see stars getting swapped much. Besides Heatley for Havlat.... Look at the bigger names. Kovalchuk, Richards, Carter, thornton heck even Burns it's usually up and comers plus prospects picks.... Especially from a team that's in the "Fail for Nail" process

Side note.... I would never do it for loyalty reason but... Id be willing to move Z for Nash and let Filppula have second line center lol.... But I love Z too much but he is slowly decreasing in production...

#2250229 Datsyuk No 1 Pick for All Star

YEPPPPPPP :thumbup:

Is that you Dave Hester? Lol. (Storage Wars?)

Geno and Pav both need to dominate the puck and the center of the ice imo if you want them at their absolute best. They both need to freewheel their own thing and they can't both play center. If this were Team Russia that we're talking about then it's different because the players are always much more flexible when it comes to a gold medal. An 82 game NHL season? Not so much.

Hossa, well, we've seen that before. They're both great players for sure. At the same time, they just didn't have great chemistry imo for whatever reason.

Kane? Definitely worth a trial look. At the same time, it's kind of like Malkin. If you're going to play next to Pav you simply won't get the puck as much. Kane is a guy that to me needs to hog the puck a little to play well.

I will agree that a lot of these players like the puck and wsnt the puck... But it makes me drool a little think about a PP that has Homer in front and datsyuk feeding Malkin for one timers....

I love how humble and how human he is...

which usually translate to goalie standing on his head against wings and getting 50 shots against shutout or 1 goal against.. bastards!

Well Kevin Poulin is currently on a 3 game shutout streak in the AHL soooo, every streak needs to come to an end right...

#2243558 Easiest Face-Off Win of All Time

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 09 January 2012 - 02:44 PM

I don't know what's funnier... The fact that they just dropped the puck, or the fact the Blues somehow didn't get it out of the zone... Instead the D forces it up the boards where the players were just huddled... I wish they would have turned it over and got scored against....

#2243366 Pittsburg Easiest Team to Beat in NHL

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 08 January 2012 - 11:36 PM

I will just say this: Pittsburgh sports fans are the worst! They are hard to handle. So the fact that their Hockey team is having problems and their Football team just lost a playoff game makes me very happy.

Idk.... Have you been to Philly.. I think they might be worse

My buddy just called up HBO (has directv) and said they were thinking about purchasing HBO but weren't sure yet if they wanted to buy it. Directv gave them a 6 month preview. You cold always try that route...

#2235197 Crosby has "concussion symptoms"

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 13 December 2011 - 01:07 AM

When bobby orr's career ended early, the NHL found a way to survive. I think we will be a okay. The only money the NHL is band wagon Pitt fans, and the money to reprint all the ad's with Crosby already all over them...

Does it suck to to lose a star player, yes. Will it hurt the NHL greatly, NO.

#2235109 Crosby has "concussion symptoms"

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 12 December 2011 - 05:59 PM

I could careless, yes he is a good player, but as a whole I don't buy the he is good for the game thing. Every player in the NHL is good for the game. On the end I'll take losing one of our many stars to not have him as a player being shoved down my throat... Yes it is sad to see but thats what I call Matt Cooke Karma. There weren't a milliOn press conferences for Savard. Yet for done reason he gets treated like a long. When he is blowing every NHL'er out of the water with points. Then I'll consider him the hands down best player. Until then he is just a star player like the Sedins, datsyuk, Malkin, Giroux, Ovie, and a bunch more.
