  1. Completely agree with the above assessment. That too many men penalty 45 seconds in was hilarious. I'm not sure I've ever seen 6 guys on the ice, all in one zone, engaged in the play before. Good bench management Blash! Nielsen looked okay but definitely needs to up his game (offensively and defensively). Abdelkader had some head-scratching plays, especially when he outwaited the goalie and then didn't even shoot the puck at all. Ericsson looked hilariously bad in almost all situations. Tatar and Nyquist didn't seem to factor into much, hopefully, that changes as we need them going and playing better/scoring. Green looked rough in the defensive zone. Howard looked phenomenal, hope he can keep it up and stay healthy. Zetterberg was his usual self, which is solid. The Mantha, Larking, Frk line was great. Created changes, but I'd say Mantha needs to make sure he keeps skating, early on he looked a little uninspired. Frk was great, made some nice defensive plays, had that great hit in the offensive zone, great score and other solid shots/plays. Booth looked good as well in his limited time. I'd almost like to see him play on the 3rd line as he seemed to have a ton of energy and was generating some chances. Also liked Helm's play, although it was limited. Now, hopefully, Blash keeps Howard in while he's hot, except on back-to-backs of course.
  2. David Booth get PTO

    I don't mind it, but don't see how they'd fit him under the cap along with Athanasiou. I wonder if he's a possible backup, in case Athanasiou bolts for Russia.
  3. Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    I'm pretty sure kickazz lied... AA is still unsigned. I'm starting to wonder what the hold up is. They can be a certain percentage over the cap without issue so why not get him locked in? Sign and trade perhaps?
  4. Off-season moves

    I just hope Holland does truly take a run at him. We are in desperate need of high-quality defensemen. I'm just not sure this kid looks at our team and says, I'll sign with them since we currently have 74 defensemen on the roster. Where does he fit in? (from his view-point) I know I know, but seriously, we have 9 NHL defensemen and that's not including Russo who remains an RFA. Something has to give. 10 forwards (signed) plus Athanasiou, so 11 forwards right now. 9 defensemen and no one is waiver exempt 3 goalies and no one is waiver exempt I would be completely baffled if he is not working out some sort of trade/trades leading up to camp. I know, it's Ken Holland, but still. You look at this roster and it's so imbalanced.
  5. Tatar Re-Signs 4 Years $21.2M ($5.3M AAV)

    I'll never understand why we re-signed Helm, at least to the term and dollar value anyway. I understand Abdelkader to a point, but they had to understand that playing with Dats inflated his numbers, so I don't understand why they give him the term and dollars. I'm actually okay with Glendening, but he should be making around 1.25 at most.
  6. Ken Holland "We protected our best goaltender"

    This tells me that they are and will continue to actively shop Mrazek, whether we agree with that choice or not. If Mrazek sticks around, I expect it to be 50/50, at worst 60/40 Howard (if he stays healthy). They have to get Mrazek games so that they can at least try to lift up his value and get something for him at the trade deadline if it comes to that.
  7. Off-season moves

    Haha... gee, it might be for the use "retard." I'm fairly certain if he had typed, "Holland is an idiot and needs to be fired," they would have cared less. Some people I'll tell you... Of those players listed, I'd be willing to trade Nyquist, Tatar, and maybe Athanasiou/Svechnikov. The latter two I would only trade for a top 2 D or top C. Nyquist's trade value, right now, isn't great. Hoping for a bounce-back season. Tatar's value is probably so-so until he can show he can be more consistent.
  8. Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    Not sure, but, and this will piss me off, if they waive Sproul and he goes down, they'll have enough to afford Athanasiou at the lower end of the estimate (around 1.5 million), but they still won't have enough to bring up Bertuzzi. They'd have to waive Witkowski and Sproul. That would be very piss-poor since you just signed Witkowski and I don't know that either would clear waivers. Unless Kronwall or Ericsson are on LTIR. That then would buy them some time.
  9. Off-season moves

    Wonder if E will start on LTIR and that helps with that decision. He's just such a worthless player to have on the cap at over 4 million for another 3 seasons. Even if he plays, he'll only get worse from here. I just cannot figure out what's holding up AA's re-signing... Should be fairly straightforward.
  10. 2017 Opening Day Roster

    Mantha had real chemistry with Zetterberg last season, he'll be on the right side with him. Tatar also had great chemistry with Z toward the end of the season. I think we'll see the following: Tatar-Zetterberg-Mantha Larkin-Nielsen-Athanasiou Nyquist-Helm-Abdelkader Bertuzzi-Sheahan-Glendening Witkowski Daley-Green DeKeyser-Kronwall Ouellet-Jensen Sproul Nyquist and Athanasiou can swap when necessary. The D pairings suck outside of the first pairing. I really don't want DK on the first pairing as he excels when not being called on to defend top lines. I'd prefer Kronwall on the third pairing, but I feel that Ouellet and Kronwall would be a slow pair and thus get burned a lot. I'm wondering if Ericsson gets bought out, there is definitely a chance it happens, but I'm not holding my breath.
  11. Off-season moves

    Sproul hasn't had a chance to be consistently in the lineup... and he won't unless we move some players.
  12. Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    You have to give to get. We have some dynamic youngsters in the 3 that you mentioned as well as Svechnikov. What we don't have and are desperately in need of is a top 2 D. That, in my opinion, is more important to this team. Trust me, I don't want to trade AA, but if that's what it takes, I would heavily consider it if I'm Holland. How else do you expect us to get a top 2 D that is young?
  13. Tatar Re-Signs 4 Years $21.2M ($5.3M AAV)

    There is a NTC in year 2, part of year 3, and a modified NTC in year 4. No NTC in year 1 though, since he's technically RFA this season.
  14. Tatar Re-Signs 4 Years $21.2M ($5.3M AAV)

    Don't forget freakin' Helm!
  15. Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    Why?
