#2562615 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by WingsallTheway on 12 January 2015 - 10:45 AM

Mrazek seems to thrive under pressure situations so I think he'll be just fine

I'm pretty sure gustavsson's groin against average is worse. I could be wrong though


Gus' groin against average is as untouchable as Gretzky's records

#2561920 Franzen on IR

Posted by WingsallTheway on 08 January 2015 - 08:29 PM

Pretty pumped about pulks, IMO he is an immediate upgrade over franzen so I think we get better here. Hopefully Babs puts pulks right into franzens spot so he has a chance to prove himself.


Obviously, we don't know what he can do at the NHL level so we'll see how it goes but it looks promising.


Just saw that it was from that hit.... I know some of these injuries arent preventable but my god Franzen is as soft as it gets.

#2557429 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by WingsallTheway on 17 December 2014 - 12:23 PM

I'll give jakub kindl, pulks, andy and a first for hall.


you dont say...

add in jurco/nyquist, remove kindl with smith/dekeyser and replace andy with helm and that might be enough.

What happens if Howard and Helm face each other in practice on a breakaway, over and over again?


The resistible force versus the movable object.   :lol:


Helm only shoots five hole on breakaways, he wins everytime


paper beats rock

Do you think Mrazek would do better coming in cold.


he wouldnt be worse


...so maybe.


No to gus though, if we threw him in his icey groin would be torn into oblivion

#2554126 Once again The D is awesome

At first I thought this thread was going to be about our defence being awesome, I was going to lose it lol

#2553213 Alfredsson Set to Sign 1-day Contract with Senators

Looks like he'll take the warmup skate with them today. Nice that he gets to retire as a senator


edit: Will be on Thursday, not tuesday.

#2550970 11/22 GDT - Red Wings @ Maple Leafs - 7:00 PM EST

Going to be at this game...my first one since going to the Joe in 09. 


EXTREMELY disappointed Dats won't be playing, especially since his status was up in the air. This was probably my last chance to be able to see him live :(


Hoping for a good game though, should be entertaining with all the ruckus going on with the Toronto media right now. Going to be wearing my Zetterberg jersey. (with the A)


Hoping for a good game! Anything but a blowout loss for the boys and i'll be happy

#2549600 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by WingsallTheway on 17 November 2014 - 08:12 PM

I think we could move Tatar at his value right now in a package for something useful. 


The reason why I feel okay moving Tatar is Pulkkinen - he is a goal scorer too and can provide a RH shot in the top 6. 


We could, but tatar is our only player who doesn't have the personality of a robot....I want to see him stick around his whole career. Hes our only player with sass and swagger

Well, what have they done since the start of last years playoffs? Nyquist has 8 goals, but in the end hes gonna be hudler. Too small of a winger for our small soft centers. Helm sheahan weiss and feraro all offer the same thing minus helms speed. Need to get more well rouned, wings of past had success with balance.this team is all same style players. Nyquist would get the biggest return


Nyquist is nowhere near hudler....like at all.....


Nyquist is our fastest skater (next to helm....gus is more explosive). Nyquist has the second best hands on our team. Nyquist is our most likely player to score a goal on a given night. 


Hudler was small and he showed it every night...gus doesnt. This is an awful comparison Nyquist is is more comparable to a young zetterberg...

This team really needs both Z and D in the lineup. The whole team plays better since we actually roll 4 real lines

#2548432 11/9 GDT - Tampa Bay 4 at Detroit 3 (SO) - 6:00 PM EST

Its pretty evident that the wings need to improve in the shootout...all around. Even dats stinks now; I used to get excited just to see him get a chance to do something magical.


Solid comeback to get the point though, although that seems to be normal nowadays.



Regarding helm in the shootout:


yes it was a bad call as he just lost the puck on his way to the net in typical helm fashion, but he played a good game and everyone would be saying babs is the best coach ever if helm had scored. If anyone remembers, helm did score a clutch goal in his other shootout attempt to give us a win.
