You are drunk.. remember he now must clear waivers meaning some other team will pluck him from the wings quicker than you can take three more shots

Was reading the plan is to move a contract before Dekeyser comes back since Nyqvist won't be able to be sent down. Does this mean Miller or Cleary will be in the AHL. To me Tootoo was our most tradeable expendable player. I am worried this contract being moved might have to be a more valuable player.

have heard the murmers of coaching change from other fans as well. Much as you said though ... Who do you replace him with? Not a lot of good options out there unless you do as Caps, Avs, and Flyers did and bring in a former player.

I love when you all do these. I'm not sure which has been better this one or getting Dekeyser.
Can't we LTIR Sammy for his vision. Anyone that can be that blind on the ice has to qualify.

My two game comments...
Howard didn't seem to be tracking the puck or the play well tonight. I would say less than 100% concentration for some reason.
Datsyuk didn't play as much as he appeared to have. Misses the minute pk from his ice time and he played two minutes less then Z. I noticed it early on that Helm was out there a lot of the time due to Datsyuk going for a quick change. I would say he isnt 100% which makes what he did on the ice all the more impressive.
Yeah it is the money issue. Cleary resigning really made a mess of things.
1 year, 4 months ago on Tootoo on Waivers...
... The positive is that er have enough plugs to take care the injury bug hits like it did last year.
Thumbed post when moving cursor, sorry.
I'm hoping he goes unclaimed just so we can keep him around. Then we convince Holmgren that Sammy and Smith are the answer to what ailes Philly so he will make an offer on them. Tell Sammy he might get a long-term deal from Philly by waiving his current no movement clause. Then all our cap problems are solved. Sadly that senerio is just a pipedream. The reality is we are still going to be screwed by Cleary's resigning and Sammy being hurt and unable to be bought out during the summer.
The positive is that we have enough plugs to take care of the injury bug that hit
I watch the games on gamecenter on my PS3. I can have between 1 and 5 minute delays. A buddy sent me a text saying Helm gets a breakaway goal on his first shift and I called bs. Helm never finishs those breakaways...
It completely looked like someone forgot to warn Edmonton's D that he is the fastest guy they will see and only needs three strides to reach full speed.
Oh it was great to see

1 year, 5 months ago on Senators vs Tire Fire Recap: 10.23.13
The monster likes to fight off the puck. I think he enjoys making routine saves look difficult.
Franzen took half a game off. Which is less than I had seen him take off in previous games.
Tootoo is better than Sammy.
We had a couple stupid penalties and a couple head scratchers, need to play with more discipline before it hurts us.
Chara played the point on the 5-3 instead of in front of the net. I would like to think this is a sign of Jullien's respect for Datsyuk and then Zetterberg.
Speaking of, highlight of my night. Datsyuk turns Norris trophy winning Chara inside out and goes on to set up Z.

Yea, I'm right there with you. I have never understood the blackouts since both are NHL products. I understand NBC blocking out games it paid to show.

1 year, 8 months ago on Free Agent Frenzy Open Post
Got to wonder if the lack of phone calls at noon might be a wake up call for him.
Cleary's knees plus age really rule him out of any extended contract.
Yeah, I was pretty shocked by that one.
Just saw a Photoshop of him in the Red and White and number 11 and my first thought was that could mean no more Cleary.
Just Sammy is claiming to be injured so no buying him out
1 year, 8 months ago on Seeya Carlo - Colaiacovo Is Gone
I heard that Boston went up to 16.5, but over 3 years. I can't blame teams being cautious about going too far past 35, especially with a player that a appears to be declining quickly.
@garth @Jay Argentina That may be the case. The reason it even came up was that just the other day Holland had said he would not be using either compliance buyout and then when today's news broke I sent him a message saying that I guess Holland changed his mind. He is the one that said it wasn't a compliance and that there was a 3 million limit. I have not had a chance to verify either, though he is usually correct (even if he is a Hawks fan).
From report I got this was a standard buyout, not compliance. Compliance require cap hit over 3mil. Or so I was told.
@ReddySadly I hear no buyouts will be used this year. As much as I would love to see him bought out I guess we will have to spend another year watching shots hit the glass, if they are even taken.
1 year, 8 months ago on Cap Anxiety
I actually thought he had a few more years left. I just remembered they only signed him to a two year deal is all. So that means all three can be gone.
1 year, 9 months ago on Mule is Staying Put
Samuelsson and Bertizzi are the two names that came to mind for me and a few friends. It's funny when you think about it though. We need to buy someone out because of the rooster spot more than the salary. The fact that they thought more of Miller and Eaves than those two really says a lot to me. The only other name that really pops up is White, who again they choose to sit during critical junctures. Of the three Bertuzzi is the guy I would keep, but I have no say.
The big difference in in this situation is what each players line was focusing on primarily while on the ice. Zetterberg's line was out there to shut down and limit Toews and his line mates. Toews was out there for offense. This is seen by the line changes both in game and between games. Toews had his linemates change in an attempt to spark some offense. Zetterberg's shifts where defined by when Toews was on the ice. That's not hypocrisy, but rather understanding what is going on on the ice.
1 year, 10 months ago on Red Wings Game 7 Recap
I did not like the Kid line at first. I too was wondering why Brunner or Nyqvist wasn't up a line. I changed my mind though. I like that they are learning together and will have a future together. As time went on they got more and more dangerous and I all I wish is they could have buried more pucks into the net.
If you would have told me a few weeks into the season that we would be one shot away from conference finals I wouldn't have believed you. If you would have told me at the beginning of the playoffs that this team would force a game 7 to go onto OT while playing without Filp most of the game I would call you a liar. The last month this team proved something. Proved they are young and need maturing, but also proved they have more heart than any other team in the league. We got to watch some amazing hockey over the last couple weeks and I can't wait to see this team next year.
Part two is just as awesome

Seriously, I get so aggitated every time I hear that dang song after a goal.
Also on the original post, I have a few hawks fan and it was funny how quiet they got there for a few games. I would like to think if roles reversed I would be giving credit where credit is due.
1 year, 10 months ago on Time for Some Hate
It is funny I saw a lot of myself in the first one, but saw more of my ex in this one.. though I saw enough of myself to hang my head in shame :(
The know it all one really got me. My ex accused me of being a know it all and would go out of her way to prove me wrong as often as possible.. Then be upset when she found out I was right.
Only advice I didn't read is.. If she dreams about you cheating and you have to go buy flowers and card to make her feel better after her holding it against you for two weeks.. . run.
1 year, 10 months ago on The OTHER 15 Ways I Blew My Marriage
Those three penalties in a row really showed how frustrated Toews is.
I loved Babs throwing Abby on PP after Franzen was cross checked. Swear he was daring them to do it again. What made it better is that it lead to Kindl's goal.
1 year, 10 months ago on Blue Falcons vs Red Wings Recap: 5.23.2013
Your not off your rocker... This line is showing amazing chemistry and is soon going to be forcing teams to spend more energy defending them opening the ice for either Datsyuk or Zetterberg.
Along not almond
I really need to double check to see what my phone puts.
1 year, 10 months ago on Change It Up - Put White or Colaiacovo In
And it has been announced Lashoff out and Carlo in.. almond with Eaves out for Abby's return.
Umm last year an eighth seed won.
I m trying to figure what what you want done differently. We have data and Z together and Abby is learning to replace Homer. We have maybe the best third line in the NHL and they are all rookies. Our second line is experienced and the only possible move would be Cleary for Bert once he returns to game form. And our forth line has two very good pk'ers. Our défense is young and maturing. Finally Ericsson and Kindl living up go potentiel. Dekeyser and Smith are rookies and only will be better.
Have to give players time to mature. I am liking what I see, and I see a very bright future.
1 year, 10 months ago on Series Tied, But Dekeyser Down
So no comment from the team on Franzen not being on the PP to start OT? That concerns me as much as Dekeyser.
I was talking to a friend during the game and we said the same thing about Bert being back next game in place of Tootoo. I do not know if he will be on the fourth line with Emmerton and Eaves or if he will be on the second line in place of Cleary, but either way I expect to see him in.
1 year, 11 months ago on It's Time To Release the Bertuzzi
@Old Fat Bald Guy I agree completely. Emmerton has really stepped up his PK play. Kindl suddenly became the player that only the origination thought is.
1 year, 11 months ago on Red Wings vs Stars Recap: 2.27.2013
I think Ericsson deserves a little love after all the hate he was getting last year.
Sadly the first line summed it all up. When I saw Abby pass Datsyuk while racing for an iced puck in the 3rd I knew it was over. I expect that type of effort from Franzen, but not Datsyuk.

2 years ago on Red Wings on Facebook: Goose is Loose
@Twig @JOHNxJOHN The quote I heard is that Datsyuk asked Babcock to put him on his line and said he wants to develop him into a linemate for years to come.
2 years ago on Red Wings vs Ducks Recap: 3.22.2013
I am for the coaches challenge. I say give a team one or two of them that can be used, but add the kicker of a delay of game penalty if nothing is changed. Similar to the bench challenging illegal equipment and I have a feeling it would only be used in situations like tonight's where the refs get it very wrong. The hard part to me is deciding what situations it can be used in. I would like it to be used in the puck over the glass, hand pass, illegal hand covering the puck and such, but how much farther do you take it. Do you make it where Kronwall's hit is reviewable to show that there was no high stick? Could the bench use it to show an obvious penalty that went missed such as a boarding or charging call? Sadly I think it will be a long time till we see a coach's challenge because of those reasons, and once there is a coaching challenge we will hear the same uproar that we do for the trapezoid and puck over the glass penalties.
2 years ago on Wild vs Red Wings Recap 3.20.2013
I didn't even think White was that good last year. He is a good person to have on the point during the power play but not someone I like seeing on the ice when the other team is pressing. Too many battles lost in the corners and too many bad passes... rather see him gone now and keep Lashoff around.

Glad Ericsson got a shout out. I thought he has played great hockey the last two games. Good stick work and gets physical when need be without getting out of position.

@Katie I really saw these as applying to any serious relationship. It is easy to get lazy and stop doing the little things. I know I will be much more mindful in the future.

@secondtimearound I noticed many were focusing on the bonus as well and seemed to be missing the whole point of what is in blue. The other disturbing trend is blaming the partner and not being introspective. I wonder how many have full and satisfying relationships.
@stillanonimis Some women are just that amazing.
I found that many of these did not just apply to married couple, but any serious relationship...
