#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

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.


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


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.

#2006892 Rafalski Considered "top six signings since the 2005-06 season

Posted by Zetts on 29 June 2010 - 09:26 PM

Yeah, I also lived in a craphole rental in New Port Richey, FL. Should I go back because they won the Cup that year? I know it's an extreme example, but people become almost religious about moves made during a Cup year.

Clearly comparable to the defenseman who played 24:53 a game when we won the Cup.

He was great for us. He also put up 14 points in 22 games. Not bad for a defenseman. Oh, and that's also more than Lidstrom.

#2001836 Is it time to trade Cleary?

Posted by Zetts on 20 June 2010 - 08:02 PM

Wow, this line thread is really going to hell. If only we had another 50 threads in which to discuss exactly the same thing.

Thanks blueadams.

#2001338 Is it time to trade Cleary?

Posted by Zetts on 19 June 2010 - 12:47 AM

this guys an idoit

So manny Stupid people... this thread makes no sence.

Not to be "that guy" who nitpicks...but does anyone else appreciate the humor of these two comments?

#2001333 How would you feel about Chelios as assistant?

Posted by Zetts on 19 June 2010 - 12:09 AM

:shocking: Did you watch the same season as we did?

The defense last season was in fact an pretty big upgrade from 2008/2009. Although I think how poor the defense was in 08/09 was a bit overlooked because of how good the offense was.

2006/2007 - 199 GA
2007/2008 - 184 GA
2008/2009 - 244 GA
2009/2010 - 216 GA

It's hard to jump back from 244 GA to 184 GA, but it looks like they're hopefully moving back towards better defense. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

#2000014 Eklund has lost his mind!

Posted by Zetts on 15 June 2010 - 05:57 PM

THREE Stanley Cups
FOUR Vezinas
FOUR Jennings
one Calder
TWO Olympic Gold Medals

Are you kidding me?

The important point of that poster was at this point in his career. If you've watched the Devils recently in the playoffs, Brodeur has been quite bad.
