    Same. How does this work now?

    Holland and Blashill expected to return

    At that time the Tigers were a WS calibre team. They were stacked themselves. The bullpen was mad with JV leading, Max Scherzer, then some younger studs. I mean... as an owner he would have been mad not to focus on getting them a win. Now that time has passed, they're going full rebuild. I don't think it proves he concentrated on the Tigers over the Wings any more that saying when the Wings had Yzerman and Fedorov and other generational talents he concentrated on them more than the Tigers. Basically if there's not much to work with, focus on where there is

    Whipping Boy

    Last few games he seems to be trying, just looks like he's been out of the game for so long he doesn't remember how to instigate. Who was it he tried fighting the other day, all the way to the bench? Guy was just having none of it. (May have been at Buffalo)

    Mrazek traded to Philly for Conditional 3rd and 4th Picks

    Great stats, but Philly have also won 6 in a row, and 10 out of the last 11. They're on fire. Mraz probably helps, but isn't what's winning them games. For comparison: Howard: 917 sv%, 2.6 GAA in his last 5, also with 31.6 Shots Against (158 total) compared with Mraz's 25.3 Shots Against (total 76 in 3 games). Howard just faces a lot more shots (understandable). Taking Mrazek's last 5 games (3 with Philly, 2 with Detroit), he's faced 28, 28, 20, 34, 32. We give up a lot of shots consistently. Unfortunately we won't know if we made a mistake until after both guys are done.

    Rumors Thread

    I always feel a little "wft?" at these sort of NTC/NMC things. Basically Green said he'd go to a favourite team or a team who's pretty much odds-on to win the cup. There's really no room to work there, considering he wasn't Tampa's first choice is seems. Which leaves Washington who had no space. I read a few bits about players saying they'd waive their clauses to go to Tampa... well no **** of course you would, but the best team in the league is only really going to look at 2 guys across the whole league most likely, that they have any chance to get at a worthwhile price. Think there was way too many conditions going against us to get anything done for Green. I didn't really expect us to make any moves, so the haul for Tatar was nice (but I'm sad seeing him go). Would like to see him re-sign unless there is a better option in FA - which there isn't (minus Carlson, who won't sign here). Guess it's Green or trade.

    Tatar traded to Golden Knights for 2018 1st, 2019 2nd & 2021 3rd

    It's the reason they signed him. McPhee said the fact he had years on his contract was one of the reasons:

    Just thinking the same. I dunno if everyone is still taking in the concessions, etc, being opening night and all

    "This is by the Chevrolet entrance, they're all official Chevrolet parts. It's made by.... someone" I don't think he really knew where he was going with it.

    Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    Genuine question: Are people as unwilling for Tatar at ~5 if Ericsson isn't getting 4.25 and Nyquist isn't getting 4.75? Do people think it's too much for Tatar because we're already handcuffed, or because it's just not worth it for him? The list of RFAs out there currently seem to put him in the lower portion of the top players based on numbers so hopefully whatever they get will force his hand a little. Never really 100% understand the process with RFAs lol. Also worth noting we get some cap relief next year on the Weiss buyout (I believe) - from around 2.5 to 1.6 hit. But we still keep that hit for 3 years.

    Zetterberg assists this past season

    No lie. Amazing to think Tatar went 9 games without a goal during the early stretch of the season. 30 goal scorer next year is for sure reachable. I know there's a lot of contract talk and that people don't want him for the money expected, but he ain't really the problem when we need guys like Gus to give something. Mantha-Z-Tatar is something I'm looking forward to next year.

    New arena construction updates

    Looking good dude. Out of interest, what drone do you use? Had a go on the Mavic recently and trying to decide between that and the GoPro Karma.

    Kucherov says some Tampa players "got their money and stopped working"

    I agree. Went to Game 7 and we weren't embarrassed at all. Just a night of bad bounces. I reckon these comments may be more a frustration of a Stanley Cup final, to a conference final, to missing the playoffs altogether. If after the final he felt the team didn't change or try to improve and inevitably went backward or were overtaken by other teams, then missing the playoffs this year probably hit him hard.

    Kucherov says some Tampa players "got their money and stopped working"

    I was thinking about this. In soccer over in the UK players contracts can reduce if the team gets relegated to the next division down. If the waiver rule can make it easier to send players down to the minors I'm sure a lot of bottom line players would work harder to keep their place. Currently 4th line players work hard as they're in the direct firing line, but 3rd and 2nd line players should feel that pressure too.
