    You don't trade Mantha on the heels of his dominant performance at the worlds. That would be foolish.

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

    The guy is a -143 in his NHL career (just over 5 seasons). Hard Pass. The closest player to his -41 last season was -22 and it's even worse if you just look at the defensemen +/-. Sucks for our offense up front and even worse for our defense.

    2020 Tank

    I wager our team defense improves a little this year with the addition of Nemeth and Filppula. Otherwise, I'm still assuming a bottom 10 finish.

    Sorry, when I said KHL bias, I really meant Russian bias. Yikes

    Okay, it's probably, at the very least, just as foolish for you to project him at a lower NHL point total. Given that two separate projections that do this type of stuff all the time put him above 50 points, I'm going to side with them over your assumption. He's worth a second round pick, easy.

    I'm really starting to think there is a bias against KHL players here... haha

    Forgot about those options as well, also very solid options if we are to add another winger. I still feel that we should let the kids play, at this point. It's already bad enough that we have Filppula AND Nielsen AND Helm... wish we could trade 2 of them.

    I honestly think Gardiner will cost too much. I'm not sure about Boyle. Personally, if they're going to add a RW and D still, I'd like to see something like this: RW Options: Jason Pominville (could be had on a short term deal, can provide middle 6 scoring) Justin Williams (could be had on a short term deal, can provide some scoring, great locker room guy and leader) Valeri Nichushkin (young, just bought out by Dallas, reclamation project) Jimmy Hayes Devante Smith-Pelly Drew Stafford Michael Ferland Marcus Johansson Ryan Dzingel D Options: Ben Chiarot Ben Hutton Michael Del Zotto

    It seems apparent that they need to deal Nielsen or Helm... Just too many guys who are very similar right now. I'm guessing they don't feel Veleno is ready this season and Rasmussen starts down in GR (which is perfectly fine).

    Could also be a move for when we, maybe, trade Howard at the deadline. In any case, it doesn't hurt. Pickard has good AHL numbers, won a Calder Cup.

    Depth signing. He'll probably be down in GR with Larsson.

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

    My money is on Veleno or Zadina being up... I think Cholowski needs a good chunk of time in GR to work on some stuff and Rasmussen could benefit as well with playing top-line minutes.
  16. Stick to your guns, I like it. They had their eyes on this kid and didn't want to let him go. Must have seen something special if they were willing to take him this high. From everything I've read about him, seems like he is a very safe pick and the lowest he projects is top 4 defensive defensemen with offensive potential. A shutdown guy who has top back skating speed and can keep up with the rush. Oh, and he rarely makes mistakes or lapses on defense. Oh, and he has a good first pass.
  17. A lot about Zadina will depend on how hard he works this off-season and how he looks in the preseason. There's a chance he could be up come October.
  18. Sounds like a solid pick where questions existed for the 2nd tier of players.
  19. Let the whining commence. I'll trust professionals and lifelong hockey minds over the lot of the whiners here. Go Wings.

    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    Did anyone glean how long Yzerman is signed for? I haven't been able to find any details on that. Holland apparently signed a multi-year extension in his new position and it sounds like he is staying put, but I could see him moving on to Seattle if they come calling in 2020sh. I think a big part of it is that he and Yzerman are really good friends, so that has to be a nice reason to stick around in an executive position. I just hope Yzerman is allowed to spread his wings, so to speak, and not be hampered by Holland/Illitch on whatever direction he wants to go (trading players, buying out players, signing players). Obviously, Holland will have input, but it better be Yzerman's show to run and make decisions. If this team doesn't take a step forward and show player growth again this upcoming season, I hope he has the latitude to fire Blashill, if he deems it appropriate.

    It's simple, they need to find a way to trim the fat off of this roster: Move Abdelkader (not going to happen because it's a terrible contract) Move or buyout Ericsson Move or buyout Daley Do not re-sign Vanek Hope that Kronwall decides to retire (unless we can move one of the D I mentioned above) Try and move Helm
  24. Madison Bowey, Mike Green, Filip Hronek, Luke Glendening, Thomas Vanek, Luke Witkowski, Alec Regula, Lane Zablocki, Ryan O'Reilly, John Adams, Cole Fraser, Reilly Webb, Vili Saarijarvi, Seth Barton, Martin Frk, Dylan McIlrath, Gustav Lindstrom, Patrick Holway..... That's just current players on the team or in the system.
