#2682946 Revisiting the 2011 Entry Draft

Posted by Bannedforlife on 12 July 2016 - 07:25 AM

I seem to remember hearing that Marchenko was highly rated for this draft as well, but he had made it known that he would only come over if he were drafted by Detroit. Hence why we were able to pick him up in the 7th.

Ahh, but you did tell me to "get it right." I had it right.

No you didnt, because no sane person would choose to drive 30 hours each direction every week or so when flying is easier, faster, safer, and depending on the price of gas in russia, cheaper. The only reason you described it as a 30 hour trip was to make Pavel look like an *******, which he isn't.

That still doesn't explain a 30 hour flight assumption  :lol: . 

I didnt assume a 30 hour flight time, I assumed that Lefty either didnt know or was exaggerating the flight time between St Pberg and Datsyuks home town and was pointing out his mistake.

So, this guy renigs on his contract to play close to family...then signs to play on a team 30 hours away from his daughter.

Automatically disqualifies has # from being retired in my book.

There isnt a flight in the world that takes 30 hours. Lol


#2679673 Drew Miller re-signs... 1 year deal $1.025 million

I think this was Holland's way of demonstrating to Stamkos that if he signs with Detroit he will continue to be employed long past his abilities have left him. Crafty move, Ken.

Did it ever occur to you that there is a reason about 10 other teams after the initial top picks passed on him as well? 

Did it ever occur to people that some guy on a message board read 2 paragraphs of a scouting report and decided that this kid is the next Scott Stevens and therefore Holland screwed up yet again and now this franchise is doomed forevarz?!?!

What if Coyotes decide to retire his jersey?

He is the best player theyve ever had

Our team will be better with Chowlowski, whoever we pick at 53, and whoever we sign with the 7.5 million cap space, then we would have been with Chychrun and Datsyuk's empty cap hit.

Big win today.

I would trade Arizona's second for Stammers rights and then offer him 11x8. No one else can touch that.

I bet all the Holland haters will still figure out a way to give Bowman the credit for this

Great. Awesome. Go write about it in your Gustav Nyquist fan blog before you tuck yourself into bed under your Gustav Nyquist goose down comforter so you can have Gustav Nyquist dreams about Gustav Nyquist scoring 1 Gustav Nyquist point every 300 minutes of Gustav Nyquist playoff hockey. I don't care anymore.


#2673741 Holland (selfishly) declined promotion

Id rather have Holland than Yzerman anyway


#2673589 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by Bannedforlife on 25 April 2016 - 05:05 PM

wasnt impressed with him in his comeback to the nhl. no do not want. 

You mean the one where he scored at nearly a point per game pace? Yea, totally unimpressed.


#2673569 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by Bannedforlife on 25 April 2016 - 03:39 PM

100% yes. Trade Nyquist+ for defensive help and replace him with Radulov for a year or two until Mantha and Svechnikov are ready. No brainer


#2664386 Fixing this mess....

Posted by Bannedforlife on 04 April 2016 - 11:25 AM

Lucic - Datsyuk - Mantha
Larkin - Zetterberg - Abby
Tatar - AA - Nyquist
Helm - Sheahan - Glendening
Jurco
 
Yandle - Dekeyser
Kronwall - Green
Ericsson - Marchenko
XO
 
Mrazek
Enroth
 
This would be my ideal wish for a nice off season...IF Pav stays...if he leaves, things get complicated, we may have to focus more on a center rather than Lucic...

You just posted this exact same lineup in this same thread less than 4 hours ago. Slow day at work?
