#2567960 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 03 February 2015 - 06:41 AM

I disagree. Ouellet has a good point shot. Its not as hard as Sproul, but very accurate.Much better than marchenko or Jensen. You need a good point shot to put up points from the back end in the NHL. I'm not opposed to moving him for the right package, but he will be a much more productive NHL defenseman than the others minus Sproul.


This is exactly how I feel after watching Ouellet, and the few games I've seen out of Marchenko. There's an air of maturity in XO's game, he doesn't make many mistakes, and when he does, he seem to instantly be able to rectify them.

*sigh* as long as it doesn't come from the insiders all these  rumors are just that rumors.


The media seems to have a hard time getting a simple fact:

Babcock won't negotiate during the season, period.


I'm already prepared to see him coaching Crosby & Co. next year


No doubt.  Stupid suck ass media.  All they do is speculate and fear monger.  Not the kind of thing frankgrimes is into.  Nope.  No way.  Errr....wait

Yeah, right. Because regular season is 3 games long.

#2538664 Will Cleary make the roster? (poll)

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 06 October 2014 - 10:48 PM

It was Dirty Harry specifically, but really it was a culmination of all the lame and obnoxious nicknames a certain poster insisted on creating for the team. Like Laser, Fire, Diesel, etc. I was like, what the f*** are you talking about?

It was your "that's all I can stand, and I can't stand no more!" moment. Like in the Goonies when they said they would pour chocolate all over the floor and let Chunk's mom eat her way through.

Yeah like that. One of my favorite posts ever. Your frustration was palpable, and it led way to some glorious sarcasm. 10/10 would definitely recommend for the lulz.

That nicknames rant from last year was by far the funniest post ive come across.
And because this is hockey, everyone gets a nickname.

#2538594 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 06 October 2014 - 04:21 PM

I wish we would trade either Helm or Abdelkader or a pick or two. They're both getting pretty redundant. If one of them were let go, I'd like to see:


Zetterberg Datsyuk Helm/Abdelkader

Nyquist Weiss Franzen

Tatar Sheahan Jurco








Not putting Weiss in the lineup would be incredibly stupid. I think he played well in the preseason despite only 1 assist. It took Hossa a little bit to mesh with the team, it'll take Weiss even longer and not even having him start the season would be a huge blow to his morale. Thankfully I think Babcock is just sending a message, he'll be in.


Just like demoting Weiss after not registering a point while given third line minutes with Kevinf****** Porter on his wing. 


How is it that he didn't lead the team in points with opportunities like that?


Babcock has a history of giving 2nd line centers s***ty wingers and being confused when they don't produce.

#2535388 Expansion draft - how many players can each team protect ?

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 September 2014 - 03:59 PM

Protect Mrazek over Howard all day...


I believe that a team can only lose ONE player, so if someone picked up Franzen, then no one else can be picked (of those left unprotected.)

#2504091 The Edmonton Oilers Mystery

Posted by marcaractac on 31 March 2014 - 09:43 AM

Too many of the same kind of player. All these number one picks, keep drafting the highest rated player rather than draft what they need. To this day I don't get why they drafted Yakupov. They should have drafted a Dman. 


That is just the problem with the team itself. Their management is an absolute mess. They need to start over right from the top. They have a lot of good players, and can quickly turn it around with the right people in charge. A few of the right trades and they are a much better team. It isn't like they don't have the assets. 

#2488779 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 March 2014 - 01:12 PM

LeBrun just tweeted that Moulson NOT at practice today, but GM says no deal in place....Hmmmm...


Kings or Blues bound I would say


Next ones Hodgoson, Myers and Ehrhoff after that their team will be historically bad like desasterous.

Nice save, but if the Flyers' player gets off a real shot there then that goes in the back of the net.

Enforcers don't deter anything yet they are everywhere in the league.  Why?
