Did a bit of research...all I found out was that he got a 5 min boarding major some time in the 08-09 season.

Height 5'10'' (178 cm)
Weight 176 (80 kg)

Meh. Lets see what he does in GR.

Edit: Turns out he's actually 5'11, 194lbs...now Im interested :ph34r:

It's an internet reputation system. It's not like if the world ends tomorrow we can exchange positive rankings for food.

With that being said, enjoy a +1 lol.


No, but it allows my head to grow that little bit more.


#2004094 Sounds like the wings are looking for size

Who exactly is this kinda player then? You have to take risks. It's the draft for God's sake. Draft only "zero risk" physically ready guys every year and I bet you won't be a winning organization anyomore. You have to compare the risk and the reward. A guy like Tarasenko actually has huge potential even though there are some risks. Don't tell me you would really draft McIlrath over him as well?

This is starting to make me feel sick.


What are you seriously on about? No one mentioning drafting "zero risk tough guys." We're just talking about getting some bigger bodies in our team.

You need some chill pills...and some nausea pills.

There, happy?


Seems a small group of posters (or one guy with multiple accounts) has been repeatadly negging all of my posts. Impressive, no? He/they have negged me about 50/60 times in the last 24 hours.

Im just a little peeved off <_<

#2002977 Do Wings fans want another Yzerman?

Stevie Y's legacy is unlikely to be duplicated by any individual in any sports franchise any time soon.


I disagree. There's another Stevie in another sport who's equally legendary in that regard...


#2002684 Cap to $59.64 million?

This has made the offseason that bit more exciting...

This was the quote I was speaking of: "You'd like to bring in a Brad May or an Aaron Downey-type player, but if it's not there, it's not there," Holland said. "If we can't fit it in, we would go without it. It's just impossible to address every single need in a cap world."

To me that sounds like he's giving up on the enforcer thing for now.


No it doesn't. He's saying he'll get one if he has the cap room for one.


#2002463 Holland Looking to sign an Enforcer

Posted by uk_redwing on 22 June 2010 - 11:22 AM

The article is the equivalent of -- "we think an enforcer would be cool in a sense of filling every possible role, but it's expendable in the cap world and not entirely necessary", which is basically what we've seen in the last, oh, decade or more? I think I just s*** in someone's cereal though by pointing that out.


:rolleyes:

Have you learnt how to make a sig that's within the rules yet?

REALLY MODS? REALLY?!?

This thread can go on and on like this, but I start a thread asking why threads like this keep going and why everyone on here is so pissy lately, in a light hearted manner and it gets deleted?

makes sense.......... :huh:


They don't care. They seem happy to let the standards of this forum drag further and further down.


#2002393 What's with all the negativity around here lately?

Posted by uk_redwing on 22 June 2010 - 10:14 AM

Possibly people are just fed up with this once great forum being saturated with s***e/people so clueless they're borderline trolls.

Trying to find a decent post on here can be like finding a needle in a hay stack sometimes.


#2002376 Holland Looking to sign an Enforcer

Posted by uk_redwing on 22 June 2010 - 09:52 AM

I think you bolded the wrong part of his quote. He mentioned ideally he would like to grab an enforcer, but he also alluded to the slim pickings on the market, especially for the particular molding Holland would be looking for.


If he's looking for an Aaron Downey or Brad May type, then the market is anything BUT slim pickings.


#2002350 Holland Looking to sign an Enforcer

if abby would drop the gloves we really wouldn't need an enforcer.


Is that because players would be scared of Abbys fearsome might? :rolleyes:
