    2023 UFA / Draft

    Yeah, picked up 147 too
  2. It would depend on the return imo, if it's a big deal or not. That said, I'd definitely trust Yzerman to maximize that return.
  3. For sure. Definitely would bring in A LOT. I personally would just hope for another high upside top 6 center in the package. But also I see no reason why Larkin wouldn't re-sign. Time will tell, I suppose. Wouldn't have traded away a 1D either? Not sure what your point is. I'm not saying he's untouchable.. just that I'd rather have a replacement in the deal, than put a 3C at 1C.
  4. Trading Larkin would be a horrible idea unless we're getting another first line center back. Our center depth behind him still isn't great.. although Copp has definitely helped.

    definitely wouldn't have minded grabbing an extra first to take Monahan. he's a solid player, just needs to stay healthy. Kadri though, wow. I knew it'd be a big contract, but that deal reeks of buyout

    2022 Draft / UFA

    Would also be happy with that. Cooley, Savoie, Gauthier, Geekie, and Lambert all interest me. Would definitely prefer a speedy center.

    Shhhh no, don't let other GMs hear you. Cooley can fall into our laps please.

    OEL with some cap hit retained and pick 15 this year for Zadina, Suter, Washington's 2nd rounder this year, and the blues 2nd rounder next year.

    2022 Draft / UFA

    On top of moving back to a normal schedule, they didn't have Price or Weber all year, and had Drouin, Gallagher, and others miss big chunks of the season. They also buried Caulfield down the depth chart/in the minors until they finally made a coaching change. It's nothing new for them though... Live by the Price, die by the Price.

    Red Wings Fired AL Sobotka Sad news. Can't find any real reasoning and both sides aren't commenting yet from the looks of it. Anyone hear anything yet??

    Red Wings Fired AL Sobotka

    Rumor has it the "drain" was Blashill's mouth. Al wouldn't stand for the piss poor state of this team any longer!

    Power play is about the only thing looking good right now and that was all Tanguay. Seems worth a shot.

    Promote Alex Tanguay for the rest of the year as a trial run.

    2022 TDL

    Lol same. Idk if LGW will get much for me at this point though... Past my prime.

    2022 TDL

    Wonder if we plan on moving Sundqvist for another pick or holding onto him. Either way, the trade sounds like a win for us. And even better, blues fans are not happy with it

    Fleury moved

    2022 TDL

    Honestly kind of hope namestnikov stays. He's the kind of energy middle six forward that any team could use. Wouldn't hate holding onto him for the rest of the season (also not opposed to trading of course). Hope he's signed this off season whether he's traded or not

    10/24 - It's All Zadina's Fault - Wangs vz Cawks

    i'm not sure what brings me more joy.... Raymond with his first career hattrick already, or chicago starting out 0-6 and getting heavily outscored

    2021 Draft

    which is why their asking price is way too high.

    2021 Draft

    I'd only trade for eichel if a lot of the assets are protected for the possibility his neck doesn't heal properly. I'm sure 31 of 32 NHL teams feel the same way. Which is likely why he hasn't been traded yet. That said, wanting to trade for him would depend on the price. Hopefully buffalo is waiting too long and the price starts going down. I'd agree we're a dark horse for eichel, but still don't think it's very likely... Although, it wouldn't be the first time Yzerman surprised me.

    he is wrong though, they're all top 3.

    21-22 Season opener vs TBL (7:30pm)

    wow, what a game! not even mad at the loss.. we showed we can score with the best of them. Larkin getting the boot while Joseph got nothing was complete bulls***. Would've liked to see Smith beat his face in. Larkin, Joseph, and the entire officiating crew should be under review after that game... holy trigger happy whistles and inconsistent calls. Hopefully tomorrow's game is that exciting. I'll be there
