    2020 Offseason

    Umm... No. It's not... at all... That was a terrible analogy...

    2020 Offseason

    Umm probably because anyone is preferable to Jimmy... Did you see how awful he was last season? Worst goalie in the league, and it wasn't even close. 57th of 57 goalies in both save percentage (0.882) and goals against average (4.20). Sure, you could chalk it up to a down season, but at 36 years old, I highly doubt he's going to bounce back. It's clearly time to move on, and Markstrom is a great option, as long as the term is reasonable.

    Absolutely. But personally, I think Stutzle is the better player, and the more likely to become an NHL center, of the three. Which is why I'm hoping he falls.

    I'm all for signing Markstrom, at the right price, and more specifically, right term (under 4 years). We need to upgrade in goal, and Markstrom definitely does that. I just don't want to sign him at $6M+ for 6-7 years... The bold, I completely agree with, which is why I would never consider Askarov (or any goaltender) with a top 10 pick, let alone 4th overall... Which is when you see dumb GM's make dumb decisions. Also, there are still some questions of whether or not Stutzle is a true center. I think he is, but if a team has concerns there, maybe he falls.

    Red Wings players / prospects on loan

    I don't think Zadina will hit 30 goals before Mantha, but I do think Zadina will hit 30 goals at a younger age than Mantha. Mantha will be 26 the first time he hits 30 goals (2020-21). Zadina will be 22 the first time he hits 30 goals (2021-22). He will come close this coming season, and a couple jackasses will still call him a bust...

    2020 Draft Thread

    IF the talent between two players is close, sure, position should be considered, but so should a lot of other factors as well. Hockey IQ, compete level, handedness, etc. are all just as important as position in my opinion. Especially when you consider, the only real lock to stay at center at the NHL level is Byfield. We've all heard questions of whether or not each of Stutzle, Rossi, Perfetti will be centers or wingers in the NHL.

    I'd also prefer Raymond over Perfetti, but would be okay with him as well. Stutzle, Raymond, Rossi / Perfetti, Drysdale, Holtz, in that order for me. Anyone else and I'm varying degrees of disappointed... Best player available, and in my opinion, that's Raymond (outside of the top 3).

    2020 Offseason

    People think the top three (or whatever number) are solidified every year. Someone almost always falls. I don't think this year will be any different. Stutzle will be available at 4. The question is, does Yzerman take him at 4?

    2020 Draft Thread

    Still possible that LA take Drysdale at 2, and Stutzle drops to 4. If not I'd be okay with Rossi, but would prefer Raymond.

    This would be terrible. Stutzle and Markstrom at $6M x 4 years.
  13. krsmith17

    2020 Offseason

    Yup, draft on the 6th and 7th, and free agency begins on the 9th... Only a couple more weeks of nothing to talk about... Then this place may implode, depending on who we draft / sign...

    Dylan Larkin Is Soft

    You are indeed the same half-wit that said that Zadina is be a bust. Therefore anything you say is basically retarded. Including your take on Larkin.
