#2296355 Who will be Vancouver's 2012-13 goalie?

Posted by Nightfall on 23 April 2012 - 05:41 PM

He was never one of the NHL's elite goaltenders. He was a steady, reliable goalie, but never a flashy one. He had some brilliant stretches, but he was not of the likes of, say, Brodeur, Roy, and Hasek.

Thats funny. He wasn't like Brodeur, Roy, or Hasek, yet the numbers say differently. He has more cups that Hasek, and just one less than Roy and Brodeur.

I wouldn't classify him as a second tier goalie, thats for sure. He was definitely a top tier goalie in the NHL. The numbers speak for themselves.

4m for the next 8 years for a player who has said he is not motivated to play in the regular season and then has become invisible in the playoffs the last two years (his only defense for his lackluster regular season was that he "turns it on in the playoffs") is a bad deal.

You have proof of that statement or are you just making that up?

He chose him with Team Canada in 2010 (an easy gig I know), but took him over someone like Osgood who was pretty stable at the time and who he knew very well with regards to what he could do. I think Stevie would take a look.

Osgood was never a first-tier goalie. Luongo has been for most of his career.

10th overall in the NHL in Wins with 401
8th overall in the NHL in playoff wins with 74
3 Stanley Cups to his name

How is Osgood not a first-tier goalie? Does he have to be in the top 5 to be a first tier goalie in your mind?

If so, the only first tier goalie playing in the NHL right now is Martin Brodeur.

Woooahhhh another Bert fan....LOL

Hahahahahaha. How was me saying he's tough and can fight mean I'm a fan? I do like Bert, and think your arguments are super ridiculous, but how did you draw that from my post? :lol:

The thing that rots me the most is we have no momentum changing players, the only guy we had we dealt to Tampa for a 7th round pick. I don't even know why I watch the 3rd periods of games like this, no one will stand up for themselves or there teammates. It'll just be going through the motions for 20 minutes and allowing the other team to run them through the glass and shove them after the whistle and do nothing about it. It's not the hugest deal if were winning and we need to stay focused on the playoff race, but if we lose tonight it's 4th at best, and unless Datsyuk and Lidstrom are both back in the line-up and 100% by next week, I can't see it. We needed home ice to go deep this year, we aren't designed to grind out tough playoff games on the road :thumbdown:

I wouldn't want to play Nashville solely because of Rinne. He can steal a series all by himself.
If he gets on a roll, that could be all Nashville needs.
Same thing with LA. Quick would scare me a bit in a short 7 game series.

Even if they get Radulov, who would have to become acclimated to the system in time for the playoffs to start

same coach, same system, and a lot of the same players.

how long would it take, really?

#2268794 What do you guys have to say about Filpulla now?

Posted by wingslionstigers on 10 March 2012 - 01:26 AM

I stopped posting here awhile back, probably a couple years ago or so. Just wanted to stop in and let anyone who wanted to trade Filppula a couple years ago know how stupid they are. I can't even describe how many topics/posts on hating Filppula there was and how many intense arguments I engaged in regarding him. That kid has always shown such great potential but was just one little step off from making alot of great plays we would have remembered for along time. He use to never get the power play time or chance to play with the skill players he needed to complete him. Now look at him.. Who knows how good this kid could be for us for years to come. Yeah I'm sure Joe average all you guys wanted to dump him for would have paid off real good today hey?

I also wanted to chip in on some other garbage I noticed in my 5 minutes of browsing the forums.. You guys are seriously dogging Franzen? Do you guys even watch other games besides the Wings? You do know unless you sacrifice all your depth, defense, goal-tending you just can't have four 80 point players now days? Look how good that has worked out for teams. Franzen is our 3rd/4th forward, and he is a very good one. Bottom line, enough said, that's a fact. Look it up. What do you expect Crosby and Ovechkin to fill out 3rd and 4th forward position? Get real you none appreciative clowns.

Oh our team this year isn't Stanly Cup caliber?? How so? Because we lost a few games past couple weeks? You do realize we are one of the top teams in the league and have been all season right? We don't have as much talent you say?? Hmm weird, we have pretty much the same players as we had last Stanley cup final appearance.. Except for all of our depth is even better today than it was then. All of our bottom forwards, Kronwall is playing like a top defensemen in the entire league. Get real guys and appreciate this great team we have. Not good enough for ya I'm sure ya can go find a better franchise than Detroit to follow. Wait, there isn't one.

The term REDiculuos is an adjective used when describing yet another great season by the best team in the NHL!

"Geez, that team is so good they're REDiculous!"

"Did you see that REDiculous game by the Wings last night? Wow what a team!"

Attention everyone in this thread, it's spelled "ridiculous". Carry on...


#2220136 Coaching part of the problem?

Posted by Guest on 30 October 2011 - 02:42 AM

I've been saying for the past 3 years to get rid of Cleary, and how he isn't worth his contract $$. Often injured, under performing. Too many Cleary supporters here; I believe this will be the year that Cleary REALLY regresses. The most annoying part? He's making 3 million this year and has a NTC. I don't want to hear anyone else complain this season after you've all given me sh*t about hating him. Just for perspective these players are also making 3 million this year...

Loui Eriksson
Alexander Frolov
Patric Hornqvist
Olli Jokinen
Rostislav Klesla
Martin Hanzal

Hell, I'd take any of them over Cleary. Lets face it our organization is OVERLY loyal; Draper stayed 2 years longer than he should of, Maltby as well.

Let the flames begin, it's just the bitter truth. Enjoy Cleary's ineffectivness before he gets injured for another 30 games again this year guys!!

Keeping Draper and Maltby on the team...while letting Kopecky go in FA and trading Leino for nothing...was one of the most infuriating occurences I've ever experienced with this team. That really sent the wrong message. That was really - really - being too loyal. That was really, really ridiculous.

But as much as I hate to do it, there are two sides. You have to appreciate management for being able to draft that kind of talent in the first place (before mis-managing it).
