  1. Ken Holland "We protected our best goaltender"

    The LTIR Isn't a blackhole that will just suck up and destroy any contracts you throw in it. It's more like a toilet, the more you s*** in it the more likely it will overflow. After 10% over the cap and there is no more relief. And that hurts the team for call ups.
  2. Mike the Muss

    No, he's not nearly good enough to even make the current Wings team out of the gate.
  3. 2017 Draft

    It's hard to compare between leagues in the CHL and between years. But I will say, within the same league and same year, his stats are underwhelming. Add to it that his production, corsi, and P/60 and G/60 5 on 5 scream third liner and PP specialist, then you can see why a lot of people were projecting him as a late first rounder and why people aren't happy with him at 9.' And lets not forget to sprinkle on the bacon-bits on this draft suck salad, Holland did mention that he could see Ras being converted to wing.
  4. Hossa's Career Might Be Over Already

    First, it seems that they have been treating him for awhile. But with these type of things (at least enough to get him on the ice) will be so life altering that it makes sense that he would eventually have to hang them up over it. And I say that with literally two post-graduate degrees to my name in relevant fields and working on my third.
  5. Hossa's Career Might Be Over Already

    You do realize that he had more goals than any player on Detroit this year? And did it in 13 less games?
  6. Looking ahead at expansion draft

    Exposing Mrazek screams that Holland wants to sign a UFA to get this team back to bubble status. There is no other reason why he would do it.
  7. Targets for the Wings

    But, I fear the flesh may become weak again
  8. Top 12

    AA should stay on the third line. He's still too defensively irresponsible, streaky and greedy to be in the top 6.
  9. Shattenkirk

    How would Detroit even pay what he wants?
  10. #9 Pick Selections 2007-2016

    Ejdsell is a 21 year old who hasn't cracked SEL yet. The chances of him being a top center are low, and beyond that Chicago and Nashville both want him as well, so it's not even a done deal. Also top centers are a lot harder to find down the draft, boom/bust defense prospects aren't nearly as hard to find.
  11. #9 Pick Selections 2007-2016

    Unless the best d-man isn't a project player (spoiler alert they all look that way this year), I would draft them lower in the draft this year and focus on getting some centers.
  12. #9 Pick Selections 2007-2016

    The press release calls him a left wing. If he were used as a center they would call him a center. Especially because he was drafted in the OHL as a center. He was converted to a winger.
  13. #9 Pick Selections 2007-2016

    It says he wasn't used as a center. He played as far back as juniors on the wing. His skill set and his usage makes him a winger.
  14. #9 Pick Selections 2007-2016

    He's not a good center. His skill set doesn't work well with being a center. As for the OHL he was listed as a center but he played left wing for the colts:
  15. #9 Pick Selections 2007-2016

    AA hasn't played significant time as a center in a few years. He was never a very good center in the CHL, because he isn't very good defensively and doesn't distribute the puck at all. He was moved to wing and has pretty much stayed there since. AA is not a center prospect, he is a winger.
