Anyone have another link to the vid? The original YouTube video was removed.

#2682689 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 09 July 2016 - 10:20 AM

It doesn't hurt to have a guy as fast as Helm who can be slotted into either the top six or play on a checking line and be effective.  He just can't be relied upon to be a scoring winger.  So, I really don't think he's the problem with this team.  He was one of our best players in 2008 and 2009 because he had a great team around him so he could play his role.  Also, apparently he could have gotten more money elsewhere so it's not like the Wings actually "overpaid" to keep him.

Just tuned in. These uniforms are disgustingly awful. BURN THEM.

#2650476 Dennis Wideman Suspended 20 Games

I don't think it was deliberate but people in sports media who don't follow hockey think it was. Looks to me like he instinctively got his stick up at the last second to protect himself and didn't realize it was a linesman.

His thing is that he's not afraid to call out players by name to the media. If players just realized that and didn't take it as an insult then it wouldn't be that big of a deal. I wonder who else may be leaving Columbus, though. Torts and Hartnell haven't gotten along this season.

#2644199 Anybody think this is legit?

Could be worse.  I ordered a jersey from FansEdge for my wife and it didn't fit so we returned it...  only to find out they don't accept returns on jerseys so they donated it to a charity.  So now we're out both the jersey and the money.  Needless to say, I wouldn't recommend them.

#2641505 Devils Sign Tootoo

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 06 December 2015 - 10:27 PM

He actually was known for his fighting when he was younger, and I said he was physical, because he is, just that I wish he would do it more often. But around and behind our net and in the corners he's one of our most physical d men.

Also, people aren't going to not take runs at star players just because tootoos on the ice. Ha. That whole deterrent thing simply because a fighter is out there isn't true anymore. Even back in the day, people would still run at high end players knowing they were gonna get beat up by bodyguards on skates. It didn't deter anything, they just had to be ready to fight after which is the same thing that happens today(even on the red wings) if e is out there he's not going to sit back after someone made a bad hit, or someone's going after one of our skilled players.

Maltby was also a 50 goal scorer in Junior. Ericsson isn't known as a great fighter in the NHL. Tootoo can hold his own, wasn't given a fair shot in Detroit, and would be welcomed depth to a roster lacking some physicality. Also, you think knowing someone will come after you doesn't deter players from taking cheap shots? Yeah, it still happens, of course. But having a guy who can stand with just about anyone in the league makes you think twice.

Howard is clearly the #2 behind Mrazek now.

#2628576 Raffi Torres at it again.

The other thing that gets me about this play is (upon re-watching it multiple times) he clearly decides that he's going to go after Silfverberg before he even has the puck.  I mean, he just makes a bee-line for him, tags him with a headshot and makes no effort to make a play on the puck.  I think that's a big factor to why he got 41 games.

Never liked the guy and hopefully this suspension is enough to force him out of the league next season.

#2620472 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 14 July 2015 - 11:05 AM

Prediction time:  Over/under on Jurco scoring 15 goals this season?


I'd say somewhere around 8-10.  Unless he suddenly has a much larger role to fill I can't see him putting up drastically better offensive numbers.  I'd love to be wrong, however.

So one report says he can't defend and the other says he does it well enough? I think he has the skill and work ethic to fix any issues he might have. I like this pick. Imagine a future 1st line of Svechnikov-Larkin-Mantha (if they all reach their potentials).
