#2508442 Nyquist since Datsyuk's Return & Unnatural NHL Development

Posted by LeftWinger on 10 April 2014 - 10:14 AM

Ya, relax, at least he doesn't take months off like Franzee...


I do think when Babs mixed up the lines he screwed with the chemistry a bit, but hopefully he goes back to what was working before!


Put Nyquist back on a line with Legwand, if you want to move Abby up, put him on that line, Franzee is useless anywhere, but we have to play him in case he decides to go on one of his 4 game scoring streaks before his 14 game drought.


Re-unite the kids-line and plug Datsyuk in with Alfie and Franzee


Nyquist - Legwand - Abdelkader

Franzee - Datsyuk - Alfie

Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco

Helm - Glendening - Miller


That's actually a really nice line up...


Jeez, just looking at that lineup, what the heck is gonna happen next season when Z and Weiss are back?

#2462345 Shawn Thornton attacks Orpik (leaves game on stretcher)

As someone who's a big proponent of fighting in hockey, I hate to see s*** like this because I know what it's eventually going to lead too. Stuff like this by Thornton, and John Scott attacking a skill player, is going to get fighting banned in hockey. This isn't the 70's or the 80's anymore, enforcers need to provide protection and keep teams honest. Not attack players who are considerably more talented then them, clean hit? Sure, please do. That's your role, dirt like this? You're going to cost yourself a job down the line. When even Don Cherry (pro fighting, pro Bruins) is visibly upset by it, you know it's not good.


You're right it will lead to the ban of fighting, but for more than the reasons you suggested.  You say enforcers need to provide protection and keep teams honest., we're forever hearing on this board how we need Probert/Kocur/McCarty 2.0 to stop teams cheap-shotting us.  Yet here we are with a Bruins star player getting kneed in the head.


A Bruin.  A big, bad, Boston Bruin.  A team (supposedly) so nasty they could play Rollerball.  And all their toughness and meanness did nothing to stop one of their star players getting kneed in the head.  So tell me again how enforcers police the game and stop cheap-shots.

Would people quit acting like they know Pavel Datsyuk personally and "know" what he would do or wouldn't do?  He may want  a ton of money.  None of us here knows that.  Ken Holland has been around the block a few times with star players.  I think he knows what he's doing.

#2316294 The Next Move

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 06 July 2012 - 10:48 AM


There's a thread for The Next Move, there's a thread for Chill People, We Have Options, there's a thread for what Holland shouldn't do next. Everybody please take a look at those existing threads before creating a new one to see if it fits in any of those.

We've been letting a lot of them go but are starting to get too many threads that are all basically speculating on what to do now after losing out on Parise and Suter.
