#2415954 The ugly elephant in the room

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 30 May 2013 - 12:49 AM

It looks like a Stanley cup final between the hawks and penguins is all but inevitable. If this nightmare scenario comes to fruition who do you root for? I know that I'll be cheering for the kings and bruins, but I feel like neither team has a real chance. I know... That's why they play the game, but does anyone really think that either the bruins or kings are better than their respective opponents?

 

I won't be watching hockey.  Simple as that.




#2415952 Franzen Buyout?

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 30 May 2013 - 12:48 AM

I'd do it - this team needs an attitude adjustment.  They won't be getting rid of Kronner/Dats/Z for obvious reasons, so the next tier down is what needs to change.  that next tier is Fil/Franzen/Sammy/Bert - basically all veterans who have either out-lived their usefulness due to age/injury or because they don't play with enough grit/passion/determination and they don't consistently bring the same effort every game.

 

Franzen just isn't the same player that he was when he signed that contract.  when the effort is there he still is, but it took 40 games for it to show up in the regular season and then it disappeared again once the playoffs started.  that is entirely unacceptable.

Hate to say it but Pierre is right there....

 

Pierre's problems usually start when he's slurping on Crysby's c***.

Listen to all of the "fans" of the Chickenhawks taunt the guy who has owned them for this entire series.

 

Where were these people in 2007?  Oh, they weren't watching hockey then, that's right.




#2411061 Fleury - what would you do?

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 25 May 2013 - 12:18 AM

2 things:

1) The Pens are on the hook with this guy for 2 more years at 5 mil cap hit per and 11.5 mil total owed. What do you do if you're the Pittsburgh GM?

2) If you are Ken Holland, are you interested in Fleury as a back-up to Howard if Pittsbugh decides to buy him out? At what price?

 

1.  I think it's hilarious.  f*** the Pens.

 

2.  Absolutely not.  You don't cut Howard off at the knees like that and Holland needs to use his cap space wisely to restock the defense.

and the best part is that it wasn't Z or D or Franzen or one of the older Vets, it was one of the kids coming through.

 

That's EPIC.

 

Onto game 5!




#2397032 Abdelkader suspended 2 games for hit on Lydman

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 05 May 2013 - 07:41 PM

I don't think that it should have been a suspension, but the amount of vitriol around here is a little over the top.  I mean, while we might disagree with his call, it is at least a defensible call.  I get the frustration, but I'm not understanding the level of hate.

 

Also, the Weber call (or lack thereof), while infuriating at the time, is completely irrelevant with regards to this.  That's in the past.  And a completely different play.

 

I think it's more of a product of a frustrating year with a marginal team that is now losing one of its most physical players at a time when it needs all hands on deck.

 

This Wings team already lacked physicality, and with Abby out, they'll basically have none.
