#2259361 Since we didn't get Kubina...

Posted by Echolalia on 20 February 2012 - 01:58 PM

I can't remember an incidence when Holland did what rumors and fans predicted/hoped/expected. His trades are always completely out of the blue. In any event, i would love to see Malone or Morrow wearing a Wings sweater next week, especially after watching the game against the sharks. We need physical, smart, effective contributors just for the occasion that we vs the sharks in the playoffs.

Also, I'm scared to death what this team will look like when Stuart is gone. I'll probably get a lot of flak for this but I think he's been our best defenseman this year, lidstrom including. It seems like he singlehandedly stops a goal once every three games, and he's the only dman we have who is really effective in the corners against players like the sharks when the cycle is established, or during a tight dump and chase. I would love for holland to pick up a defenseman with a similar playing style to Stuart.

#2258271 Yzerman asks Pavel Kubina to Provide list of teams

Posted by Echolalia on 18 February 2012 - 12:41 PM

I'll take Kubina if Yzerman includes Malone in the deal as well.
Kubina and Malone for kindl, emmerton, and a low pick. Tampa Bay gets some young talent to work with, clean up some cap space, and we get veteran leadership and grit to help us in the playoffs. I think it's a fair deal for both sides

#2257258 Why everyone hates us

Posted by Echolalia on 15 February 2012 - 11:06 PM

All teams that are successful are hated outside their fan base. If they're successful; one of the best or the best in the league, that means they're a big threat to the success of some other team. Thus hatred is born. Nobody hated the sharks before they started beating us. Nobody hates the penguins, or even Crosby for that matter, until they started getting legitimately threatening. Up until recently, Chicago was the team everyone loved to play because it was an easy 2 points. Now that they won a cup and stand to challenge for it for at least a little while, there are a ton of folks that hate the organization.
The wings have been a threat to other team's success, and that threat has existed for 20 years. That timeline is long enough for just about every team in the league to have been competitive or near the top at least once. In other words we have directly threatened (and often succeeded) at stoping just about every team from reaching their ultimate goal during a period when they actually stood a chance at winning at least once. We're widely hated for this reason.

#2257189 Blackhawks' Losing Streak: Nine Games and Counting

Posted by Echolalia on 15 February 2012 - 01:54 PM

Why wonder when you can use this: http://www.edzobingo.com/ and piece together what he would say on your own.

My own attempt is that he would say that "All those young players out there on the Blackhawks need to keep their active sticks on the ice, get the puck in deep & use their speed to the outside to go hard to the net." See, it's easy. :hehe:

It's like he's an active member of the forum

Guess we'll just have to win two more

#2253848 2/8 GDT: Oilers 2 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Echolalia on 08 February 2012 - 08:41 PM

Emmerron sure is becoming good trade bait

#2252513 How open would you be to trading Hank?

Posted by Echolalia on 05 February 2012 - 12:06 AM

I'm not willing to trade him, but he needs to get his head out of his ass and play like he actually cares, or if he has some lingering injury that's causing his abysmal play then he needs to get the hell off the ice so he can rest up and not be dead weight on the ice.

#2251870 Rick Nash?

Posted by Echolalia on 03 February 2012 - 01:54 PM

Its funny, but I would accept most of the trade proposals posted here if it meant getting Nash on a line wih datsyuk

#2251823 Howard has broken finger, Joey Mac recalled

Posted by Echolalia on 03 February 2012 - 11:38 AM

The bright side: he finished the game last night despite breaking it mid-game.
The wings are in 1st place overall, which is the most ideal position to be in when a goalie gets injured, instead of say 5th place or 9th place etc.

The team knows that it's Conklin behind them now. No more Howie to the rescue, no Howie to win shootouts for us. If that's not incentive to give it your very best then I don't know to tell you.

#2251001 1/31 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Flames 1

Posted by Echolalia on 31 January 2012 - 10:40 PM

Zetterberg is so painful to watch this year. He's supposed to be one of the best players on our team, and I don't even know if he's the best player on his line right now...

#2249367 Cooke Boards or Jackman Dives?

Posted by Echolalia on 25 January 2012 - 04:47 PM

Jackman definitely embellishes, but lets be frank: players have been diving as long as anyone can remember, and while the refs don't have the benefit of a replay, Shanahan does. It will be much more difficult to embellish a hit to get somebody suspended.

#2241853 Red Wings - Maple Leafs 24/7...

Posted by Echolalia on 05 January 2012 - 08:24 PM

If the Wings are on 24/7 next year, Holmstrom absolutely has to be around. I've been hearing for almost two decades about how ridiculous and silly he is.

I would have paid a lot of money to have seen a 24/7 during the Detroit, Colorado brawl! Could you imagine the interviews with McCarty and lemieux, their lives away from the ice? Priceless.

There was actually a similar show that followed the WIngs towards the end of the rivalry. Its on youtube I think.

here's the start:

Now we need someone to compare these numbers to the win rate when there are no fights.

#2238623 Will Jimmy Howard Be Overworked For Playoffs?

Posted by Echolalia on 23 December 2011 - 02:42 AM

Let's play a guessing game... I'm going to throw out a number, and you tell me what it stands for


I'll give you a hint, it has to do with Howard and it's not an on ice stat...

Howard's favorite integer between 5 and 7?
