    Maybe it's the night for first goals. Witkowski, now it's your turn!

  6. Givani Smith He's only played 11 games for the Guelph Storm this year so he must be injured.

    Go WIngs! Austin Matthew's is still out for the Leafs, so we have to take advantage of that and get a win. I want to see Mantha get a goal for this one. He had a few moments last game where he was shaking his head and looking pretty frustrated. He's pointless in the last 5. Good to see we're loaded up with that Tatar-Larkin-Mantha line.

    Umm, Green was out there for 3 on 3.

    Putting out Z and Nyquist for the beginning of OT made no sense. Z was looking off to me tonight (the pass for the tying goal went right through him) and Nyquist's been pretty bad for the last stretch (except the Winnipeg game). For a depressing update, our 1-5-4 record in the past 10 is worst in the league. Anyway nice goal from Larkin. I'm all about watching the young guys develop this year it's good to see him put a goal in since it's been a while since his last.

  12. Blashill says struggling Wings must "Trust The Process."

    Seems to me that "The process" is really a sports cliche that pretty much everyone says so I'm always surprised when people mock Blashill's use of it. It's like "take it one game at a time" to me. Then again, maybe it's a sly reference to the 76ers to reveal that we're tanking, haha: "You would be hard-pressed to find a mantra throughout sports history that is more synonymous with a team's culture and identity than "Trust the Process" is to the Philadelphia 76ers. A rally cry once used exclusively by the wonkish followers of the team's Patron Saint of Tanking, former Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie, TTP has outgrown both the group and city to gain relevance throughout the U.S. pop-culture landscape. From Ace Hood to Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci, everybody is putting their trust in the process these days."

    I think the thing you keep missing is the factor that he's not on a long term contract. It's not trading a young player for 'arguably the best defenseman,' it's a year of him and basically negotiating rights. And I think you're overvaluing that.
  14. Rumors Thread

    I think we're in line for a pretty good player this year. Maybe next year too. And, yes, Karlsson would be a shortcut to a rebuild, but I'm not sure Larkin, AA, Rasmussen, Svech (our current one) Cholo and Karlsson would be enough of a core to win. And I'm sure Karlsson could see greener pastures elsewhere when considering whether to stay. With Tavares, sure, that be a nice team, but that's a few too many hypotheticals ahead for me. Anyway, for my last pitch to you. I'll counter what you imagine: If you lost Mantha, Nyquist, and 2 1st rounders, and then Karlsson went elsewhere in free agency, I think that'd go on the list of worst trades ever. And think of how much that would put the rebuild behind. But I guess you'd be a bolder GM than I.
  15. Rumors Thread

    You've taken away the 2 first rounders from the trade you were talking about. And it would cost more than Mantha and Nyquist. Think of Vanek in 2014. He cost the Islanders Moulson, a 1st and a 2nd - and he had only a half year left on his contract. So Karlsson would be quite a bit more than that. And then he wanted to test free agency after all and didn't sign with them. I'm sure that Holland will call as well (as he should), but I don't think it'd be worth while to trade so much for which will essentially be a year of him when we're not a contender and negotiating rights. Especially with his comment about getting what he's worth, I think he'll check out free agency (unless he has loyalty to Ottawa and is just trying to get the most from them).
