  1. *Top Pair* Cholowski - Hronek (combined 5 points in 8 games) >>> oft-injured Chychrun (34 points in 118 games)...

    Mantha is Lazy and He Sucks

    Never said you said any of those things... but lately you have been overly negative in my opinion, bordering on "the Lefties and Dickies"...

    Mantha is Lazy and He Sucks

    I'm really not sure what you were expecting this season... We're a bottom 5 team. We may finish bottom 3, maybe even dead last. That's not a bad thing in a draft that features Jack Hughes. I watch every game hoping we win, but knowing we'll lose more often than not. I'm okay with that. We've seen huge strides from some of the kids, and I'm sure we'll see more from others. We're FIVE f***ing games into the season. Mantha has been doing some good things out there, but he would be the first to admit that he needs to do more. I expect a big game from him tonight against his childhood team. Athanasiou has been doing a LOT of good things, but has been snake-bitten. It happens. I still expect AA to pot 20 this season, which is great for a middle six winger. I do think you've been overly negative lately, but whatever, to each their own. You can call me a homer, or whatever. Doesn't bother me. I'm well aware that I'm sometimes overly optimistic about certain players. It sure as hell beats the overly pessimistic approach, but that's just me. Holland is a has-been... Blashill is a never-was... Mantha is lazy and he sucks... Athanasiou is Helm 2.0... Howard sucks... DeKeyser sucks... the whole team sucks... Burn it down.

    I can admit that Mantha is struggling (he is), but again, it's not near as doom and gloom as some (including yourself) make it seem.

    I can't speak for CRL, but no I don't think Mantha has been playing that well. He definitely needs to step it up (I think he will), but I dont think he's been close to as bad as some are attempting to make it seem. He's still been one of our better players (not saying much), despite the lack of production. The points will come. And with points will come confidence. And with confidence will come more points... Mantha will hit 30 goals this season... I know, I know, he's on pace for 16 and he's lazy and he sucks... Mantha, hasn't been great, but he hasn't been bad either. Just curious, how do you feel about your boy Rasmussen thus far?
  8. Frk is going to score a power-play goal. Cholowski is going to put up 2 points. And lazy Mantha is going to put up 3 points. 5-2 Wings.

    Hey now, don't let facts get in the way of a good narrative...

    Predictions for the 2018-2019 NHL Season

    Yup, for sure. Americans, Russians, Swedes and even Finns are catching up a little more every single year, but they're still at the top.

    Predictions for the 2018-2019 NHL Season

    Again, I personally don't give a s*** about Canadian teams... Canadian players still dominate the league. The NHL is roughly 40-45% Canadian players. I'm a Canadian kid that grew up rooting for an American team because of a Canadian player (Yzerman)...

    Veleno with another goal and assist last night, and McIsaac with 2 assists in his season debut (just coming back from shoulder injury).

    PROPOSAL: Wings should trade for Cole

    I hate to say it, but I'm looking forward to Kronwall hanging them up. I'll never wish injury on a player, but it wouldn't be the worst thing if Kronner missed some (most) games this season. He's nowhere near the level of player he used to be. He had some atrocious giveaways last night (every night), in particular, on that second goal. I'm okay with Abdelkader on the team, as long as he plays a limited role (4th line / penalty kill). Unfortunately, I don't see that happening...
