Bobbi with an I - Phil Vassar

Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades! :P
Just kidding it counts in my rule book.

Even Flow - Pearl Jam


#2311178 CRAZZZZYYY Roster Idea

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 29 June 2012 - 04:06 PM

I'm going to call you out here, but in fairness this is a gripe that I have with almost every line thread on this site. That's my disclaimer to here goes...

Drew Miller is a MUCH better forward than Justin Abdelkader. My almost every measure he out performs Abby. I like Abby, I want him on the team and all. But why is Miller always the odd man out on these line combos? I certainly hope it's not because "Abby's a big bodied guy and one of the few on the team that is physical" because he really isn't that big, or that physical. Please explain your rationale for me.

Again, I'm only calling you out because this is the most recent time I've seen this, but you're by no means the only person who's done it.


Darth Miller just doesn't have the same ring to it. :)


#2311173 Paul Gaustad re-signs with Predators

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 29 June 2012 - 04:01 PM

He wouldnt be awful compared to some other names mentioned on this forum like Ott and some other injury ridden players. Price is the key factor which im sure he will get overpaid like everyone does. Blahhh....


Ott 39 points 278 hits +5 on a non-playoff team last season. Gaustad a whopping 21 points and a -1.

I'm just sayin.. both guys come at about the same price, Ott will double up Gaustad in points, hits, and he will drop the gloves and stick up for his teammates. Not seeing the appeal of Gaustad over Ott.


#2307938 Thinking of Buffalo Wings.....

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 19 June 2012 - 12:37 AM

Vanek isn't that great imo, the season before last was a disaster for him and I can see him being an off and on type of player throughout his career. No thanks, especially not for 7 mil per.

Derek Roy? Sure if we could convert him to playing wing instead of center. He's the better player when comparing him to Vanek and would probably come cheaper.

I still see any trade in general as a last resort option, why dish out our players and picks when we can sign quality guys without sacrificing any of that? The deal with Stuart happened because it was necessary, not because the Wings are in a trading mindset.

Free Agents are priority #1 and if we do it right no trades are going to happen.


#2307683 If we fail to reload with top UFAs we should?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 17 June 2012 - 04:36 AM

At that point my guess would be Holland would bring back Hudler, sign someone Seminish, sign someone Widemanish, and add that #2 goaltender. Do I like this? No. Hudler will be overpaid, Semin will be Semin, and Wideman/Quincey/Smith < Lidstrom/Stuart. Holland's got the money though and he's not going to do nothing with it....And basically he's not going to go with a youth movement for the sake of going with a youth movement. I think our young players would be given a lot of chances to make the team though if this happened.

Maybe a trade....maybe


It's kinda shocking how close this is to what I was going to post. Plan B, Semin, Wideman, Hudler and youth. Bring in Josh Harding and potentially a grinder/goon like Prust that has some small level of hockey talent on top of the physical play. For this reason I'd pass on Konopka who i've seen mentioned before.

Good news is that it's now June 17th and we only have about two more weeks of this agonizing anticipation until we actually see what this team does/doesn't do to structure for the future.


#2307472 Breaking Bad

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 14 June 2012 - 11:12 PM

New season starts July 15, looking forward to it.

I've restarted the series from season one, planning on watching through it all again before the final season starts.


#2307172 Chris Stewart

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 13 June 2012 - 01:41 PM

St. Louis is a respectable and competitive team again, why wouldn't they do what they can to retain Stewart? He was a recent addition to their team which has become a success, I don't see them messing with that.


#2306385 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 June 2012 - 04:41 PM

I was hoping it was the other Murray also, thanks for your services Brad you will be missed.

Now we can look forward to BlueAdams capgeek lines thread without Stuart on this team. :lol:

That's not what you originally posted about, Garrison isn't even in your D lines.

I'm officially enlightened, I had no idea we needed defense. Thanks for the clarification OP!


#2305327 Throw the bank at RFA Shea Weber?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 June 2012 - 12:47 AM

Wow...... A top 5 Dman that you guys don't wont because of some ruff stuff..... THIS IS HOCKEY!!!!!! It happens all the time. The really funny thing is, Burt commited the worst cheap shot in hockey history, and he has been here twice! But Weber "isn't up to pair for the Wings"..... OMG.....Some of you are as bad as Notre Dame fans.......


I think for the first time ever I kind of agree with you here. Sure what Weber did was a dick move, but it didn't injure Zett and if it came down to that incident determining if people would want Weber here or not, i'm kind of surprised how many are saying they would pass because of it. Fact is, Weber is still a big, physical, scoring defensemen. What Lemieux did to Draper legitimately condemns him from this team, what Weber did to Zett doesn't in my opinion. I'd still take him in a heartbeat, the guy is among the best D guys in the league and offers just about everything you'd want out of a big defensemen.

I still don't think he leaves Nashville though.

What Bert did was against Colorado, not Detroit. I'm sure if he did what he did to a Wings player he would not be playing on this team.


#2304913 Andrei Markov

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 03 June 2012 - 01:02 AM

Similar to the discussions about Hemsky before he got resigned, Markov is one of those guys i'd take in a second regardless of recent injury concern. When he's healthy he is a high scoring defensive threat, and a good leader. If the price is right, i'd take Markov on this team.


#2304701 Red Wings Next Captain

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 01 June 2012 - 07:12 PM

Just to go in a different direction........ Next C is........Suter? Sign him to a 10 year deal-ends at 37, and breaks the tie during contract negotiations........ Just a thought........


Any thought of them signing a free agent and immediately naming them Captain is ridiculous, and insulting to the guys like Zett who have been with this team for a long time. Instances like this occur when a team is bottom level, rebuilding, and sign a player that is brought in for a leadership role. I remember when the Thrashers signed Bobby Holik and he was given an A shortly after, they were a team looking for direction and didn't have much of any veteran leadership. We have plenty, so much that there's easily 5 or 6 guys that can wear the A so this scenario wouldn't apply to this team.


#2304675 Star Wars 1313

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 01 June 2012 - 04:40 PM

Announced at E3, little is known but one thing has been confirmed, there is a new Star Wars game franchise on it's way and it seems like it's going to set itself apart from the rest.

Here's what we do know, 1313 will explore the darker side of the Star Wars universe, not to be mistaken with "The Dark Side". It will follow the criminal life of a bounty hunter and his/her journey through the universe, exploring more of the slums and underground network of the lives of these feared characters.

More details to come as this is still in very early development.
