#2532623 Dekeyser/Tatar status update

Posted by dirtydangles on 20 July 2014 - 11:20 AM

Kindl's gonna go on waivers cause they can't trade him and Smith will get 2nd PP time.

Then Kindl goes to a couple teams in the west and improves greatly - then Holland desperately trades a 1st round pick at the trade deadline for him and then Kindl stinks up the joint here again and gets re-signed for 4.25mill.




#2532418 Babcock Interview on 105.1 this morning

Posted by ben_usmc on 17 July 2014 - 08:45 PM

I am not a huge fan of Babcock the last few years, but that was a great interview today.  It didn't sound like he was willing to commit to Cleary and accepted they may have dead money on the books.  He also sounded confident about an extension.

There is no easy schedule in professional sports.


#2519396 NHL 15 Getting New Commentators: Doc and Edzo *sigh

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 May 2014 - 11:31 AM

How difficult would it be to get each team's actual announcers on the game? Genuinely curious? Is that even possible?

would love to have Ken and Mick on a game.

I remember reading somewhere that EA stated doing the commentary is the most difficult and expensive aspect of developing a sports title, that's why it's been Gary and Bill for the last 7 years or so unchanged.

 

I for one support this entirely and i'm pretty excited about the change. I am a GM for a League Gaming team and play at least 1,500 online games per year, I compete in organized OTP leagues so I definitely overplay the series. Hearing the same commentary for the last 7 years has pretty much forced me to turn it off in the options menu entirely. While i'm not thrilled about Eddie being here, the rest don't much bother me and it's a much needed change. 




#2531673 Tomas Jurco's Ridiculous New Stick Trick

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 11 July 2014 - 06:33 PM

It's a neat trick, but...
 

[cranky old man] I'd rather see him out there at the end of practice working on picking the top corner, or firing slapshots or something [/cranky old man]

 

which admittedly he may have been doing before or after this video.  It's just that stuff like that is cool I guess but has zero usefulness in a game, other than improving his general hand eye coordination.   I'm more impressed by a kid grinding it out after practice firing puck after puck.

Holland coming back from his obvious brain damage could be our big off season acquisition.


#2532019 Red Wings new assistant coaches

Would be awesome if we could get Bylsma or Melrose.  .

Market value?  How dare he!

If I was him and I just saw what Quincey got I think I'd ask for 6+ million, the same goes for DeKeyser, no way I'd sign for less than KFQ if I'm him.

He already said he wants market value on this contract. So like I said, no problem with trading Tatar for green.

 

Market value?  How dare he!




#2531316 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Jedi on 10 July 2014 - 07:18 PM

Huh... Could have sworn that today was July 10th not April Fools...

He could still end up in GA, even on a one way contract. It just means he gets paid the full contract amount while playing there. So it would be a waste of cap space, but not a waste of a roster spot.


#2531090 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

As a moderator here, I'm just glad the Wings didn't announce the re-signing of Quincey and Cleary on the same day.

I agree on Tatar. Beyond size and defensive shortcomings he is a really special player I feel. Nothing like Hudler except in those two characteristic (and perhaps a propensity to party). Tatar is a catalyst - he drives the play, make something from nothing, provides that spark, (and other cliches). It's that winning drive that you see in him that I think is actually rare. Babcock put as "one of the ones that drives the bus." at some point this past year.

I'm still trying to get my head around Tatar being nothing more then Hudler?! As soon as he got up to the big club he put on clinics on hard work & determination. You can see when Tatar is on the ice he wants to make something happen and usually did...He won the MVP when they won the Calder, the kid loves to win and it shows. Moving him, Nyquist, or Jurco are my bugga boos

I'm with you. Tatar was very impressive, especially considering it was his rookie season. He may be only 5'10", but he plays like he's 6'2"
