#2179705 Ken Holland: Open to trade to replace Rafalski

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 25 May 2011 - 05:00 PM

Please stop talking about trading for Campbell, I don't want Holland reading and getting any ideas.

The Hawks have cap problems and he is one of the reasons why. Why would we ever take away there cap problems by making them ours...?

#2179386 Brian Rafalski announces retirement after 11 NHL seasons

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 25 May 2011 - 12:54 AM

I'm confused why everybody still thinks Holland won't make any moves until the 2nd or 3rd wave. Yes, in the past couple years he tends to do that in situations where the cap is tight. He also has found ways to sign big names like Hossa and Rafalski when he has had the money. There is no way possible to only sign 2nd and 3rd wave players and fill up all of our cap room. I believe that Holland will earn his paycheck and bring in a player that can start replacing what were losing.

On the other note defensive wise I like Ehrhoff, Bieksa, Markov (if he can stay healthy), and I also like the Weber, Doughty offer sheet of it's for 2 firsts, 2nd and a 3rd. Four 1st's is a lot. I'm really excited for this team to really have a chance to throw some money around I just hope we do it in the right manner. I also would love a Hossa type Richards deal... Sign one defenseman this year to replace rafalski, and sign richards for a cup shot and then sign burns/surer for lids. Richards wants a cup contender not huge dollars that works in our favor... I hope...

#2177996 Changes in the offseason

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 21 May 2011 - 05:10 PM

Would you rather him over pay for free agents every year? I know I dont... Find your leaders within the system for hometown rates and loyalty. Only go fishing in FA when needed hence Rafalski. Just look at some of the recent top player FA contracts and they get quite pricey and don't work on in the long run.

I'm not trying to call you out but we were one win short of the final four with injuries. We faced a3-0 series defiect not because of what players but instead of how they were playing the first couple of games. Holland always ices a contender and we are damn lucky to have that good of a GM contracts like datsyuk and Zerterberg look better every year as the caps go up.

#2177115 Brad McCrimmon will not return for 2011/2012

I want Vancouvers old Defensive Coach. Ryan Walter, he also ran their PP. Only reason I want him is because I'm buddies with his son. Free Tickets!


#2177102 Brad McCrimmon will not return for 2011/2012

Step 1: Fire McCrimmon
Step 2: Hire/Promote new defensive coach
Step 3: sign Ehrhoff/Bieksa
Step 4: Howard plays like he did in playoffs all season...
Step 5: Win Jennings for least amount of goals conceded..

#2167153 WCSF Game 4 GDT: Sharks 3 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 06 May 2011 - 12:23 AM

It starts with one... I want to win a tight one... Not a blow out, not a game they don't show up in. I want them to play their best hockey but we play our best and beat them. Thats the only way we can take any bit of confidence into game 5-7 if we get there...


#2149842 A call to fans

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 15 April 2011 - 06:13 PM

I'm all for helping... I don't have the time to be calling into the NHL offices but I think I could definitely call into NHL Live and stuff and get the word out there more... I think fans of all teams would find this to be a disgrace. This is a 59 year old tradition and some guy that has been in the league all of what 5 years is deciding that he can try to ruin that tradition for what cause.

I was also thinking some one mentioned about everybody in the entire arena throwing octopus on the ice at once, yes thats a little over board but the same concept could be used. I think if you got a handful of people try to get the upwards of 30-40 people all to throw Octopus at the same time at the same game. That would be quite a site and as dumb as it sounds might make a little bit of a statement saying that we are going to go against whatever he tries to pull. I think even attaching a note to one of the legs basically telling Bettman to F Off would be a nice touch. I obviously think this needs to be done at the end of the game or a late goal or some time where 30-40 octopi wont be too long of a delay to the game. I love the tradition as long as it's done in the confines of the rules. Really no matter when it happened I don't think it could cause any more of a delay the the Rats during the Panthers games in what 94,95 or 96?

This is getting a little absurd, the reasoning behind his complaints are starting to get old and quite frankly are garbage.

Yea rough go.... I would love to bring in a Defenseman to replace Salei.... I like him but I think another shutdown D would really help to tighten things up come playoffs.... Nothing huge... just a little move to really have tighten it up...

#2100506 Wings Negotiating w/ Nabokov

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 20 January 2011 - 01:56 PM

I want this move to happen just to give Howard a kick in the butt... Adding the goalie that took you out in last years playoffs in a 4-1 series should light a fire under him. Just like a lot of players do, when you are not being challenged you tend to slow down and get complacent. Well hopefully this goes through he doesn't get claimed and either Howard gets his A game back or Nabby shows what he can do with a good rotation and not 70+ games a season.
