#2266749 Cleary, Bertuzzi, Hudler and Franzen

Posted by Hiei on 04 March 2012 - 11:58 PM

according to capgeek, we have Cleary at 2.8 through next year. I think he's done after that. Cleary is slipping back into laziness. DAN CLEARY IS LAZY AND HE SUCKS ™

Bert has 2 more years then he's probably retired.

Franzen is leading our team in goals. Rightly or wrongly, he's doing what he's paid for, for 3 and change per year until 2020.

I see that Zetterberg has REALLY shown up the last couple games. Maybe put him with Helm and Miller, those guys seem to know what puckwork is about...IT JUST MIGHT BE CRAZY ENOUGH TO WORK!

Where the hell is Ericsson lately? how about Kindl? hasn't done much since the start of the season.

Hudler WAS 2nd in goals (dunno if he still is) but goddamn kid. USE SOME OF THAT UFC GOODNESS. ILLITCH DIDN'T PULL THAT MOB CONNECTION FOR NOTHING!

#2265423 Nystrom hit on Letang

Posted by Hiei on 01 March 2012 - 01:48 PM

Nystrom has his elbows down and the puck is right there for either of them to play. If he thinks that Letang is going to get the puck before him, doesn't he have a right to blow up Letang from handling the puck, i.e. Good Old Time Hockey? Eddie Shore? Had Letang not tried his best (and failure) Datsyuk impersonation, and taken the body hit, he would've been body blasted into the glass, probably written off as a hard and clean check. After watching the vid, it does not appear to me that Nystrom targets the head in any deliberate fashion.

Of course, if this was the pittsburgh broadcast, those dillholes Steigerwald and Errey would be calling for Nystrom to be banned from the league.

#2256108 The only teams that can win the cup

Posted by Hiei on 13 February 2012 - 02:25 AM

The only thing SJ has done different this year than years past is not bury Niemi into the ground with excessive amounts of games in the reg. season, mostly because Niemi was injured the first month of the year. Adding Burns has not given them a spark, and hell, i'll say that their D has gotten worse since 2008 when they had a super D in place (Boyle, Ehrhoff, Blake, Vlasic, Murray, Huskins, Lukowich)

Marleau's getting older. Thornton is getting even more washed up. Pavelski is learning how to dive from Thornton. Couture is young and having an effective season thus far. Havlat is injured (again). But SJ has no DEPTH. Handzus isn't scoring as he used to be able to. I've seen what he could do when he was with the Flyers. He isn't the same guy he was.

Remember last year, game 7, it took the Sharks playing their top 6 in excess of 25 minutes that night to put us away. They also went 23+ in games 4, 5, and 6. The Sharks were too gassed and that made them easy for the Canucks to pick apart. No matter how good Niemi or Greiss are, they're gonna get blown up again.

If the ownership of the Sharts had any real interest in winning, they'd intervene since the GM isn't doing it.

Thomas has angered the hockey gods by putting himself ahead of the team. He will be Smote.

#2248283 What's wrong with Abdelkader?

Posted by Hiei on 23 January 2012 - 12:21 PM

Can we send him to russia and have him get some guidance from the LAST #8 in EXCELLENCE we had? I'm sure the Professor has some spare time on his hands. :clap:

Walk a mile in his shoes.

How 'bout you, let's trade shoes, just to see what it'd be like too.

#2242994 Cherry rips Holland

Wings win. That's all that matters. Sounds like insecurities from him. Wings don't need a tough man to win. FACT.


97-98-02 Grind Line. Players that took the body and won in a collision.

2008: THE DRAKE, Mac's Comeback, and Downey. Players that took the body and won in a collision.

Since then:

09-lost in Finals
10-lost to SJ (admittedly we were injured a lot that year)
11-lost to SJ (can't let them run Howard and take liberties with our guys again like games 1, 3, and 7)

We don't need a goon, nor do we need a bunch of fighters...We need:

1. Player who can go out and throw hits in a shift to separate opposing player from puck.
3. Player who makes opposing teams pay for taking liberties with our players
4. Player who can chip in some points and skate at a decent speed.

And there are lots of guys out there who fit those points. Unfortunately, We don't have any of those guys on our team right now. Abdelkader is the closest, but he looks like he wants to be a top 6 guy and not a 3rd line energy option.

#2240523 Your MVP Thus Far

Posted by Hiei on 01 January 2012 - 12:08 PM

I think Quick might give Howie a run for his money on that.

Only if LA stops floundering and can pick it up with Sutter running the bench. And Sutter might be more willing to use the 2-headed monster in Goal in LA, because right behind Quick is Bernier.
