#2204782 Anyone else a little excited

Posted by kylee on 22 August 2011 - 05:54 AM

I've been excited about this since I heard about the signing. I think Commie and Ericsson will make a great bottom pair (hopefully E picks up a thing or two about the physical side of the game). Assuming Kindl is the 7th D, everyone in the top 6 except Lids (and E if he can't learn) can lay some decent hits from time to time. I'm really looking forward to watching a defense that can bring that physical element I feel we've been lacking.


not to rain on the Ericsson parade, but people have been hopeful of him turning into a big mean defenseman since Grand Rapids -- i just dont see it happening. A more realistic expectation of him, i think, would be for to him to just play in our own zone more soundly, make the simple plays, and go from there. Sure, it is certainly possible that the Red Wings can tap some of his unused skills, perhaps on the 2nd PP since one of the years in the AHL he won the hardest shot competition during their all star game, and i think we all would love to see him actually play his size, but to me, thats just wishful thinking. You cant just teach someone to play rough, you either have it or you dont.

am i the only person here who actually doesnt mind the shoot out? i mean its the best option in my eyes to end a regular season game with excitement without dragging the game on where either people may leave or perhaps a player gets injured. Im good with the shoot outs in the regular season. Maybe a small addendum to the current role, play one 10 minute OT and then shoot out? is this being tossed around? no silly 3-3 to 2-2 , just 5-5 hockey , and if it gets past the 10 minute OT, give me the shoot out.

Oh no not Daniel Carcillo he's going to be the downfall of the Wings with his superior grit and intensity. I'm all for having rougher role players but some people take it to the extreme.

The only reason they escaped from losing a 3-0 from the red wings wad because franzen AND datstuk were hurt...no excuse but if they're 100% or not so freakin hurt the red wings would've beat them. Lets not forget that they also got an extremely lucky bounce in game 1 OT when a shot rode up Stuarts stick and into the net.

skilled, but severely lazy and an attitude...sounds perfect for the KHL


sounds very European.

ESPN: what's hockey?


#2199351 Chris Osgood announces retirement

Posted by kylee on 19 July 2011 - 11:07 AM

No :( idc what anyone says he is a Detroit legend. Two Cups, 400 wins and beating up Patrick Roy.


#2199163 Chris Osgood announces retirement

Posted by kylee on 18 July 2011 - 10:06 PM

He was great in the playoffs. He couldn't stop a beachball in the regular season.

So which matters more to you?

I am going to be laughing hard if he is healthy and has a stellar season.

Folks have short term memory issues as Osgood came off the bench in 2008 and well, there was a parade with that big shiny metal thing.


No Ozzie to bailout Hasek in 08 and no Stanley cup. But what do I k ow that was like 10 years ago


#2189425 Habs shopping Wisniewksi's rights + for a 2nd rounder

Posted by kylee on 25 June 2011 - 01:12 AM

I'd like to trade Hudler to free up some roster/cap space and I don't think we'd get much more than a 2nd for him. We got Stuart for a 2nd and a 4th and Stuart > Hudler.


Why is everyone so quick to send off Hudler after one bad season? He deserves at least up until next season's trade deadline before he is moved. If he is sucking up to that point, then i'm for him being traded, but until then, people gotta get off his back. He (and Filppula) were huge assets when the Wings won the Cup in 08.


#2188127 Nick Lidstrom wins Norris trophy #7

Posted by kylee on 22 June 2011 - 11:18 PM

People are seriously on HFboards whining that Lidstrom didn't deserve to win because he was -2. F the plus/minus stat, one of the most meaningless stats in all of hockey. Votes for the Norris were very close between Lids and Weber but Lidstrom completely deserves this, plus/minus be damned.

That blows. Change up the teams already.


#2186983 Chris Drury

Posted by kylee on 19 June 2011 - 08:10 PM

The Hudler hate from some people on LGW has reached a fever pitch. Drury for Hudler because Hudler had one sub par season? Good God.


#2182192 Jonathan Ericsson's Value?

Posted by kylee on 02 June 2011 - 06:36 PM

Lol seriously Ericsson gtfo.


#2182189 Brad Richards

Posted by kylee on 02 June 2011 - 06:33 PM

Wait so Richards doesn't want to play in a hockey crazy market? Why not exactly? Also, I want Holland to work his magic in bringing in players that take LESS to be here and have a real shot at the Cup. No way in hell Richards or anyone else should make more than Z or Dats or Lidstrom, assuming he returns.
