#2195496 Yandle on the block?

Posted by Zetts on 02 July 2011 - 06:01 PM

I think anything less than Filpulla + Helm + Smith + a 1st round pick, 'Yotes would laugh in Holland's face. Yandle is worth four 1st round picks. Holland is giving up on two 1st round picks and a late 3rd (Filpulla) and a 5th (Helm).

That's not really how it works. Why are you even mentioning the round in which roster players were drafted?

If that mattered, then Kronwall (1st round), Lidstrom (3rd round), Zetterberg (7th round) and Datsyuk (6th round) combined wouldn't be enough to match those magical 4 first round picks.

Edit: My personal opinion is that Fil and 2 1st rounders should do it. Maybe also a mid-level prospect. That is IF the Coyotes actually wanted to trade him.

Holland, you sack of CRAP, why didn't you brainwash him into coming here anyways??!!!111


...Oh wait, are we all acting sane again?


#2190217 2011 NHL Draft: Round 1 Discussion

Posted by Zetts on 26 June 2011 - 10:46 PM

Back to Zetts- thanks for clarifying your opinion and thanks for expanding. It added a lot positively to the discussion on both sides of the issue, and I see what you're saying now.

Thanks - I probably should have expanded more in my initial post, but at least I was able to convey my thinking. I think for the most part, picks in the first 2 rounds are interviewed, but from there on out I imagine that many players aren't. I certainly do empathize - these kids are under a lot of pressure and I'm sure that at their age few can fully articulate what they want to say. Grimaldi got much more attention then I think he was expecting due to his size. I do agree - I'm curious as to how important personality is when evaluating a prospect. Obviously we've seen that something like poor work ethic is not looked at favourably...but that's a bit different as it has a direct impact on the on-ice success.

Contrary to your belief, roughly 90% of the gays I know are bisexual and choose to be with either female or male at a time. You do know most gays are bisexual right? I know they don't have the choice of not liking the same sex, but they are able to make the choice of who they date most of the time. Plus, look up the term "ex-***", you'll be surprised to know that many gays do indeed convert themselves away from homosexuality. And just for the record, because I know I'm coming off as a homo hater, I'm actually pro-*** marriage and my two best friend are *** and I actually know what the hell I am talking about lol.

Painfully false claims. I won't say any more or this thread will be derailed. PM me, or here has been a thread where pretty much any time a homosexuality question came up it could be discussed.


#2113315 NYI ... G Poulin injured during warmups

Posted by Zetts on 09 February 2011 - 12:32 AM

Maybe Garth Snow will come out of retirement and play for them...

And then the owner, seeing how much he sucks, made the executive decision to put him on waivers, at which point he would be claimed by the Oilers.


#2100203 Crosby on strike

Posted by Zetts on 19 January 2011 - 06:27 PM

I can just imagine the whining we'd be subjected to here if it was Crosby that got hit last year and not Savard and the rule change came because of that....it would be whining of epic proportions. But of course it wasn't him, so no big deal right?

...obviously. There is no precedent of Savard receiving favoritism in the league so there's no reason to think that was the basis for the rule change.

There is (at least in the eyes of many members of LGW) a heavy Crosby favoritism in the league, so if a rule change was based on him, it's obvious that there would be greater scrutiny.


#2032883 Who will be the whipping boys for '10-'11?

Posted by Zetts on 12 September 2010 - 08:19 PM

My guesses.

1. Refs
2. Bettman
3. Howard
4. Filpulla
5. Bertuzzi
6. Babcock

Number one should have been Crosby.


#2028896 Ozzie article

Posted by Zetts on 24 August 2010 - 12:28 PM

Oh for...

Here's an idea: See how he plays this season, and then decide if we want him back and at what price.


#2028393 Penguins sign Arron Asham

Posted by Zetts on 23 August 2010 - 12:32 AM

I find it bizarre that there's so much discussion over a fourth liner. It took most of the summer for the guy to sign a one year 700k contract. Obviously he's not a highly sought-after commodity and he wouldn't make a big difference to this team.

He hasn't broken 30 points since 2003. Looking at hitting he had 92 hits in 72 games last year on a team whose culture is supposedly based around physicality. Jonathan Ericsson had 93 hits in 10 less games, and the guy barely hits at all. Asham's 92 hits actually puts him in a 5-way tie for 206th in the league for hitting last year. How inspiring.

I swear, someone on this board a couple of years ago just started pushing for him enough and this got some momentum. We're fine without him.


Also, it would be great if people could stop commenting on others' perceived intelligence, children, mothers, dogs and whatever else. Just stick to the topic.


#2023720 Detroit rumor...

Posted by Zetts on 07 August 2010 - 03:39 PM

If we are shopping Drew Miller we better get a pretty damn good defenseman in return, or sign one with the cap space it opens.

:lol:

In a trade for Miller, we'd probably get a random prospect or a late pick.


#2015109 Lilja, Modano, and Maltby news

Posted by Zetts on 14 July 2010 - 10:31 PM

http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index.ssf/2010/07/red_wings_touch_base_with_kirk.html

I really hope they sign all of these guys even Maltby because the guy is still a warrior, he's got heart and he's still a force along the boards. what do you guys think about the article. oh and 1.25 for modano is about right for one year and for the talent the guy still has.

Kirk Maltby?

I want some of what you're smoking.


#2013710 Vey old game Russia-Canada

Posted by Zetts on 11 July 2010 - 12:44 AM

Do you understand what "it seems" means in your native language? Looks like "it seems" wasn't Brind'amour's mind when he saw puck in the net.

"It seems" is often used to mean "it is understood as true". Thefreedictionary corroborates this. So, "it is understood as true" that the Russians scored because they had too many men on the ice.

And yes, I imagine Brind'amour didn't notice the goaltender at the other end of the ice, he was focusing on the play. That doesn't make the goal valid.

And I'm not even asking why the previous Russia's goal was dissallowed.


I'll answer anyways. The net was off the moorings.

It was also cutted from your country's glory moments. Coincidence?

There's no reason for Canadian highlights to show Russia's illegal goals because nobody cares about them. The correct rulings were made.

Anything else?


#2013689 Vey old game Russia-Canada

Posted by Zetts on 10 July 2010 - 11:18 PM

to summarize, thta is how you win tournaments that are on you FFFFf***ing land... Wanna to be the best? Cheat on the best! That's you Cnadian formula!

Um, no. A little bitter? Random goal from 14 years ago?

THIS is why:

With two minutes to go, they were pressing in Canada's zone when Curtis Joseph committed right and put himself out of the play. The puck went to unchecked Sergei Nemchinov, who threw it in the open side. But another commotion arose, and after much discussion this goal was also called back. It seems the reason Nemchinov was so open was because the Russians had six skaters on the ice and had not yet pulled their goalie. No goal, plus a two-minute penalty for too many players on the ice. Team Canada squeaks out by the skin of their teeth.


So no, the Canadian formula is not cheating. Their formula is outplaying the Russian team.

#2013412 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Zetts on 10 July 2010 - 12:23 AM

Definately not alone. Theres quite a few of us who don't want him here.

We just keep quiet because we keep having our posts minused ;)

This is why I loathe the +/- system here.

If there's a feature that actually hinders the one thing that this board if for - discussion - then I say ditch it.



But anyways, I do want Modano, although I'm not as excited about it as I initially was. I think having a third line that can score a bit like in the '08 and '09 seasons would make us much more competitive. And in terms of gritty players, I don't see a whole lot of particularly attractive third/fourth line options.


#2011689 How much production do you expect from Hudler?

Posted by Zetts on 07 July 2010 - 12:38 AM

The same way this happened:

...you voted 7 times from a nice breakout pass?


#2011397 Getflaf for Zetter

Posted by Zetts on 06 July 2010 - 05:52 PM

Terrible trade idea. They're both equally valuable, they just play different styles of games. Getzlaf is more suited for the Ducks' style of play and Zetterberg is more suited to the Wings.

The trade would make both teams worse.
