Posted by Helmethead on 29 August 2015 - 08:30 AM

I say we should play Jimmy all 82. Lets go for the goalie wins record.

Leftwinger bought the truck with the most HOSS power.

That was probably just an accident. Leftwinger, on the other hand, specifically bought a Ford F-150 after seeing Franzens Ram commercial. Because f*** that guy.

Yesterday on this board I learned that Dats is starting the season on the team. Today I learn that he and Z are both done. Lol
Oh and that Holland is gone.


#2623456 What's your roster lines ?

Posted by amato on 19 August 2015 - 05:21 AM

Tatar-Datsyuk-Abby
Nyq-Richards-Z
Jurco-Sheahan-Pulk/Franzen
Helm-Glendog-Miller/Ferrero

Dekeyser-Green
Kronner-Smith
Ericsson-Quincy/Marchenko

Howard/Mraz = 1a & 1b


Side note: with all this depth, the camp "teams" for scrimmages will be better than ever :)

Eh. Somehow injuries always seem to solve this problem.

 

It sounds kinda sinister when you put it that way.

All these line combos tell me one thing, we have too many players. With a bunch on the way. At some point in the next year and a half, Kenny has some serious decisions to make about the shape of the roster. (Not a bad thing by any means though)

Noted, I wasn't really articulating my position on Helm's usage very well.  I really like Helm on the fourth for matchup purposes, but I wouldn't object to him being on the third over Jurco.  At this stage in their respective careers I really don't think there's a significant difference between them on either line.  Take Helm of a line with Pav and Tatar and he doesn't score like last year.  Put Jurco with Pav and Tatar for most of the season and he probably doesn't look as bad as last year.  But either way, I'm not too heartbroken over who goes where between the two of them. 

False, Helm had 33 pts (15+18) and didn't play with TT and Dats the whole year. He had 32 pts. (12+20) in 2010-11 centering the 3rd line. or 20 pts. in 42gp last year. He's been pretty steady apart from injuries.

 

At this point of their careers Helm has outperformed Jurco in probably every possible way: points, PK abilities, faceoffs, etc.

 

I like Jurco and hope he becomes the power forward that fulfills his potential, but I'm a Helm fanboy and I think he is still very under-appreciated.




#2623677 Adidas Gets NHL Jersey Deal

Posted by Richdg on 21 August 2015 - 04:04 PM

I don't think Adidas sucks BUT it's not like Bauer, CCM or Graf in other words it's not a hockey brand. So now a non hockey brand is going to design hockey jerseys another brilliant decision by the league.

What part of Adidas owns CCM did you not understand?




#2622878 Franzen's Gift to Nyquist

Posted by Echolalia on 11 August 2015 - 03:10 PM

People all over the internet keep saying "I want these sheets!".  They're nuts.  Who the hell wants Mike Babcock's disapproving glare watching over everything they do in bed?  You can almost see him thinking "Luke Glendening works harder than that" whenever you're making love to your partner. 

 

Screw that. 

 

Pssh Glendening Schmlendening.  Cleary goes down faster than anyone.

#2622347 This off season...

Posted by F.Michael on 05 August 2015 - 04:21 PM

@Bill_Roose: Prepping for you know what. The ice returns to Joe Louis Arena tomorrow. #RedWings season can't be too far off. http://t.co/ghGEBN3tBW

But will the troughs in the men's room be ready for another season of 'borrowed beverages'?
