  1. Thanks

    Pretty good price for the Red Wings.  I just hope he can stay healthy.  
    He's up to a 90 overall in the 4th year of my NHL 19 franchise mode.  So there's that to look forward to.

    Is there a no fighting clause in this contract?

    Hell yeah, Mantha! 
    Now there's a four year extension we can all agree on!

    Maybe Abdelkader could get a job as an organist? Heard that he is real gud at pulling the piano.

    Daley is the first ex-wing to get a new job this offseason. Off the ice.

    Super smart pandemic or not for where we’re at, especially with the way our longer term deals have had a way of completely backfiring quite often lately.

    It's pretty telling that not one of our ufas has signed anywhere yet.

    Our Wings of last year could barely pass the puck to each other in a peewee practice drill. I can’t wait for us to actually have a transition game again. That’s the part of the “system” that in many ways made it almost unbearable for me to watch last year.

    We just need another top 2 center. Maybe Fabbri does well there, but I would rather keep him on the wing.

    Absolutely. We need to split up that top line and spread out the offense. A team as bad as the Wings don't really have the luxury to have Larkin and Mantha on the same line. Split them up.

    If Turris and Mantha have so much chemistry, then lets do it.  Right now, all of our projected top 6 players are interchangeable on the 1st and 2nd line.

    I've been chuckling at your prediction.  Love it that you were right.  Now we just have to get Lil Drapes out against Lil Turtle and see who's Daddy gave his baby the bigger yambags.

    Last year was d heavy, this year is forward heavy.  Be nice if Hanas is Yzerman's next Kucherov.

    If we can get some good picks i'd take the Quick trade. Bernier's contract is over next summer so we'd have him as a starter for a couple years. And hopefully, we will have Askarov, and he's ready to go when Quick goes.

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't qualify any of Ehn, Perlini or Erne. Especially if he is "open for business" to acquire Cap and assets. Those assets could very well be players that would make those three expendable (even more so.)  But I guess if he qualified them for the 1 year, he could always waive them if he gets more players.

    Yeah, pretty much this. I'd much rather have Loui Eriksson and a 1st round pick (or whatever other asset), and let a replacement level player like Ehn or Erne walk...

    It's not always about income. Hockey isnt a sport you can just run down to your local park and play. In a lot of communities (of any demographic), hockey rinks require a car/bus/subway/train ride to get to. It takes a lot more effort to play because access can be an issue. It's hard to get kids of any background to dedicate themselves to a niche sport like hockey, when there are easier mainstream options available.
