    Sure, I see you're point. But to be fair it's much easier to score being the net front guy. It's why Abdelkader ended up with the biggest PENIS on the team (please refer to the interesting stat thread).

    In the future he should hold all Larkin Hockey School practices in his "dungeon"

    Keep grasping straws. There's literally nothing to complain about. It's like suddenly the team is doing what you griped about them not doing for years... rebuilding, committing to young players... and now you're forced to manufacture reasons to be mad. First this years draft, now Larkin's contract. When is it no longer the teams fault and just oneself being insatiable? He said Larkins contract isn't team friendly because it's not 6 years 5 million. I said why isn't AA's 3 years 2 million? I don't actually believe that to be the necessary, just parroting dumb logic with dumb logic to shed light on the point.

    LOL. Kane and Toews both put up less than 80 points and their AAV is 10.5 mil each. Larkin at 70 points at 6.1 is a great deal. Less than market value equals team friendly deal. Why is anyone complaining?

    Damn, wish we would’ve got Larkin for 8 years/1 mill per year. Way to go Holland....

    Vanek signed for nearly the exact cap hit as Mantha, so obvious Mantha is done. Only you could be upset by this deal

    You're insinuating a lot here. I don't recall anyone saying he's being ruined. In fact, I don't think anyone called his deployment misuse either lol. I explicitly stated I would literally be happy whether he continues to be deployed in front of the net or not. I don't feel strongly either way... just that net front wasn't his play style in juniors... I think everyone agrees playing in front of the net made him more productive. Check out his PENIS size (interesting stat thread), one of the biggest on the team for that very reason. Christ. Jesus. s***.

    Oh Christ, this is going to turn into another Jurco/Smith situation isn't it. If a guy doesn't perform exactly as we imagined he would then he's been "ruined" by the coach. Mantha was top 50 among all forwards in powerplay goals and that's considered a bad thing? 9 of his 24 goals came on the powerplay. His 15 even strength goals (where he's not a "net front" presence) would have tied him for the top 100. Hell, his even strength goal scoring isn't even the best on the team (Nyquist and AA). If anything, moving him to net front on the pp made him a more productive goal scorer, not the other way around. Mantha can't play like he did in juniors because it wouldn't work. He dominated a bunch of kids because he was more physically developed. He won't be able to blow by NHL level defensemen and beat NHL goalies clean off the rush. He also probably won't score much as a shooter on the PP either because his lateral quickness isn't great. So Blashill makes a tweak to his game to give him more success (which works) and people *****. He had a 900% improvement on his PP goalscoring over the year before and Blashill is misusing him? Jesus.

    I'm with you, I don't think Mantha's skillset has been fully utilized up until this point. He's been largely playing a role he wasn't playing before coming to the NHL and I feel like because of it a lot of people are really underestimating his ability to be a sniper. I really feel like Rasmussen is more suited to being a net front guy, that's his game.

    I don't disagree, Blash has used him as the net front guy and Mantha has been successful at it. However, that wasn't really his play style until joining the Red Wings. Going forward, if he molds well into a net front guy I'll be happy. If Ras steals that role and he hovers around the top of the circle I'll probably be happy too.

    It will be ok, because as i said all summer, Z is done. But you are just trying to start an argument. You know exactly what I am saying. The .market dictates these salaries, and the owners cause this by the prices they charge to even go to a game. You know I'm not against signing these kids. Despite "The Market" I just don't think the cap hit is team team friendly. Maybe I'm stuck in the 90's. So be it. But that doesn't warrant constant attacks on an opinion in a (failed) attempt to get me to fly off the handle and reciprocate your approach. I'm not the same person I was in the past. Again, despite my opinion, I'm good with this because it's a wash of Z's contract goung to LTIR. That'll give us $2.8M plus Franzen's $3.9M in cap room. That means The New Z and Rasmussen will be up and maybe Hronek, thus making me even more happy that we are going in the "rebuild" direction. If Old Z were playing, I'd be a bit mad because then there would be no more kids this season because of the two cap hits. But I respect your opinion and examples on how it's good. It makes sense. Instead of baiting and trolling you should just respect other opinions even if they don't support yours.

    He's more of a big Tatar, who doesn't use his size very much.

    Gotcha, I'll edit my OP to take Lafreniere out. Cozens is nice, but I prefer Broberg so far (also the name Broberg has so much meme potential, it's a can't miss) Podkolzin looks like the next Datsyuk/Kovalev to me, which is why he excites me more than Kakko and others.

    I actually liked ‘KFQ’...The Winter Classic on HBO gave me a laugh... Waitress - that guy over there is a fan and wants to buy a round of shots. KFQ - how about some fish tacos?
