#2636597 Smith-Kronwall

Posted by WingsallTheway on 12 November 2015 - 12:47 PM

Exactly. The stat is relevant. Dismissing it is silly.


I'll jump in and agree +/- is relevant, but not as telling as some may think. You have to look at it a certain way


For example, Larkin being +11 on our team says something.


When OV was -30 and scored 50 goals, thats absolutely pathetic.


If someone is -15 and theyre team is in last place and everyone else is around -15, its a team stat.


If someone is a career +400 player, such as Lidstrom, it shows that his teams were always relevant and he played a huge part in that

I love Helm but hes taken a step backwards physically. Its most likely due to the injuries but he used to be a wrecking ball out there.


I'd like him on the team but its true, we can't take him back at his next salary so he's gotta go. Would be nice to try and get a return for him

#2635114 Play Coach - When do you pick a goalie

Posted by WingsallTheway on 04 November 2015 - 08:35 AM

I'm totally fine with whats been happening. What's wrong with having two goalies rotating that are both capable of winning every night? 


It's only going to last for one season so enjoy it

I'm always 50/50 on whether to take you seriously or not. With the former option in mind I'd like to point out that Larkin and McDavid are playing big minutes. You want to play Athanasiou on the 4th line. Silly. In fact, that mentality makes "an-ath-of-you".  ;)


People seem to think speed = 4th line

I'm the father of the Red Wings "GM" ? I feel proud.

I actually think 4-1 with the lone loss coming to Toronto. We play as good as the team against us is in the standings. I'm sure there will be an OT win mixed in there

#2634700 Looks like Tyler Bertuzzi is a ****** like his uncle

Posted by WingsallTheway on 02 November 2015 - 09:43 AM

Actually you can. 


Jamie Benn (who fit into this clown category) is leading in points and goals in the league and his team is currently ranked 1 in the western conference. 


Shea Weber's team's not doing too bad either. 


I don't think we can ever compare Tyler Bertuzzi to Shea Weber and Jamie Benn....

...but where does he go?


I mean, really?  Who wants his 5.292 cap hit?

Who do we blame this on


Cleary. Hate that guy.

#2632460 Janmark nylen makes the Dallas roster

Posted by WingsallTheway on 23 October 2015 - 03:21 PM

At this point I'd take janmark over Richards.


Richards = Emmerton










Obviously not haha but yeah I've been totally unimpressed. His backcheck during a goal the other night was just horrific

#2631016 I think this might be finally it for the Mule, Sadly

Posted by WingsallTheway on 15 October 2015 - 04:13 PM


Did you pay attention when Franzen said retirement was something he wasn't considering?


So because his symptoms are back and he's being placed on IR as a precaution, he's absolutely donzo? Please, he will sit until his symptoms are gone again, and then he will play. I remember when Crosby was going through this same thing.


People are acting like he got rocked with concussion #1000 or something lol that's not the case


I didn't say he was for sure done but it doesn't look good. Franzen has been very stubborn throughout this whole concussion ordeal. The thing with these head injuries is its totally on the person who's having  them to call the shots, theres no way of a doctor telling if he can or can't play because theres only "symptoms"


If he just sat out (8 months?) and comes back for 2 games and doesn't even get hit and hes facing symptoms again, what's going to happen when he actually gets hit in the fastest game in the world?


Pronger's and Savard's symptoms never went away and it doesn't seem like Mule's will either. These things just tend to get worse...  

#2630991 I think this might be finally it for the Mule, Sadly

Posted by WingsallTheway on 15 October 2015 - 02:08 PM

Why is this it for him? He didn't sustain another concussion. I assume he'll be lacing them up as soon as his concussion symptoms are gone again. That could be sooner, rather than later. He's on regular IR.


Have you been paying attention to concussions for the past 10 years? 


He missed 1/3 of last season from symptoms (from a tap to the chin) and complained of symptoms all off season


Came back for 2 games (with seemingly minimal contact) and hes out again. It does NOT look good for mule.

#2629115 Cleary NOT reporting to Grand Rapids

Posted by WingsallTheway on 09 October 2015 - 03:17 PM

Not a fan of Cleary's decision here.


Holland gifted him 3 contracts and now its time for him to return the favor and he wont do it. Hope he leaves the org and never looks back

Literally 90% of OV's time on the ice is standing right there waiting for a pass


Teams still don't defend it lol
