    AA is basically Larkin if you took out his brain stem. Breakaway specialist. If we can get a Dman for him you do it. Bertuzzi and Mantha way more valuable, way more complete players. AA is the type of player who scores 40 goals for you but is -10 and you wonder why till it's too late.

    2019 Draft

    Dude... radiating butt hurt energy Yeah I kno I pretty much agree with your assessment. I don't nearly see the type of player I expected from Zadina so far. I'm willing to change my mind if he grows, but I'm awfully suspicious at this point, as this player was supposed to be ahead of the curve. I don't think he is at all right now. I have no doubt Zadina would have been fantastic in juniors this year. However I agree with Mackel that he looks one dimensional. He was advertised as a competent two way winger. That couldn't be farther from the truth. His defense is 100% not up to par. He looked like a Pulkkinen out there. I may not agree with you on a lot of thing. but I do think you're getting stiff armed by popular opinion right now. Hold on, I'm here with ya.

    Maybe we can get top-pair defenseman through other means than trading away one of the guys who can actually put the puck in the net. I respect and enjoy a lot of the analysis and posts you guys have but the last two years has been trying as an AA fan.

    If we trade a young one it's AA. He's the most one-dimensional player of the bunch. 30 goals is awesome but you can't AA/Paul Byron a team to a championship. Mantha and Bertuzzi have both shown they bring a well rounded 200 ft game at this point. AA hasn't at all.

    "Yzerman had it easy in Tampa what with stars like Stamkos, St. Louis, and Hedman to build around, who arrived before he even got there." and then "Yzerman had it it easy in Detroit what with stars like Larkin, Mantha, and Hronek to build around, who arrived before he even got there."

    Official 2019 Offseason Rebuild Thread, Pt. 2 - What's the Yzerplan?

    Yeah It's not official yet. Would be his first FA as a Red Wing thou. Hope it's as good one. The kid honestly looks really gifted offensively for a Dman.

    How long till Yzerman cans him? I almost guarantee Stevie will keep him around until the team is ready to compete, then when we're ready, he'll sack Blash and sign his cooper.

    2019 Draft

    Do you? I asked you why they aren't considered busts relative to their draft position. Neither of them look to be a better pick at this point in time. But go on, keep sidestepping. Also everything I said was true, I was just too lazy to quote the posts you said them in. Jared McIsaac had a better season than Dobson btw. The only argument to be made for drafting someone else over Zadina at this point in time is Hughes, and you thought that would be a "huge mistake." The fact that you have paid zero attention to our other likely candidates since the draft but insist Zadina was a bad pick pretty much says it all. You judged him in junior (contrary to any scout), haven't watched him since (I assume), say we should've drafted Dobson, Bouchard, or Hughes over him with admittedly zero context. Excuse me for thinking you're lacking solid reasoning.

    Lucky for him he was handed a franchise D in Hedman at Tampa and in Hronek at his current team.

    Top pair D > 30 goal scorer. Sorry if u guys dont understand that. And all of our trash isnt going to get us that. So glad we have a competent GM who understands that you have to give to get and u cant acquire talent with garbage.

    Me too. AA is great.

    So much trash on our squad and all every thread is filled with is trading AA for a defenseman. A Mantha thread only took 5 posts in to propose getting rid of our 30 goal scorer. I'm glad Yzerman is at the helm.

    I'm going on the notion that they have a handful of spots open on their D, and a few RFA forwards, and who knows how much $$$ they'll have left once Marner gets his $$$...Not sure if the Leafs will have, or want to spend $3 plus on him? I do agree though - Kapanen has the potential to be a 30 plus goal scorer, and would be worth the max of a tad over $4 million so we wouldn't lose much in return.

    Chances are that's about all he would be offered by the Leafs, being an RFA, but if a team wants to pry him away from Toronto, they're going to have to offer a lot more than that. Kapanen would be a huge add for this team and he'd be worth every penny of $4.2M. No way the Leafs wouldn't match a contract in the $3-3.5M range. Edit: $4.2M is the maximum salary to keep the compensation as low as a 2nd round pick. Doubt it happens, but I'd do it.

    News From Around the NHL

    I wouldn't mind seeing Kapanen in a Wings jersey...Chances are he'll get nothing more than $2 million (possibly less), and I'm sure he'd entertain the thought of a 2, or 3 year deal for $3 to $3.5 million, and it would only cost us a 2nd rounder.

    2019 Draft

    The thought has crossed my mind, yeah. He's been pretty good about landing solid defensemen through trades tho. That's one reason why I'm kinda content to see us just keep loading up at forward.

    News From Around the NHL

    I hope so! It's funny, going into this tournament I was all like "It'd be really great if we could have a few of our young guys tear s*** up in front of a big non-Wings audience. But that won't happen, because Wings." I've just kind of gotten used to the Wings having low-key, under-the-radar, non-spectacular young players. I'm absolutely loving this change of pace. Combine that with the whole "Yzerman is the best GM in the league" thing (not sure I agree, but a lot of people seem to feel it's true) and the Wings are maybe kinda sorta starting to become a nice destination for top UFAs again.

    2019 Draft

    Anybody at all concerned that in his entire career as a general manager Steve Yzerman never drafted a defenseman who was worth a damn?

    Yeah, I doubt there'll be any offer sheets, but I think some GM (not necessarily Yzerman) should offer sheet Kapanen for $4.2M... and not just because I want the Leafs f***ed over... I think it could be a low risk, high reward signing.

    I wouldn't hate a trade for Nugent-Hopkins, but I wouldn't give up Mantha.

    There's literally no rumour here. Just some guy guessing if Holland wanted to trade rnh for mantha or not
