  1. Official 2018 NHL Amateur Entry Draft Discussion Thread

    Sergei and Andrei Kostitsyn. I'd say that Eric and Jordan may be the most apt comparison. Eric was an elite top line forward (center) and Jordan was / is a solid middle six forward (center).

    I think the drop off from Andrei to Evgeny is pretty significant though. One has the potential to be an elite top line winger. The other will likely be a middle six winger. That's not to say they couldn't play together if we did draft his little brother. I doubt it would ever be like the Sedin's though. Those two are (were) both elite, and they also had the whole identical twin thing as well. I'd like to get Andrei, but I'd probably go with Tkatchuk if I had the choice... Dahlin and Svechnikov. Rebuild accelerated.
  3. Official 2018 NHL Amateur Entry Draft Discussion Thread

    My bet would be on us taking Svechnikov, although I'd probably prefer Tkatchuk. I'd be more than okay with either though...

    Nah, I don't even think Holland would do that...
  5. Rumors Thread

    I'm assuming this is a joke? No deal, unless they throw in a s***ty defensive prospect that was drafted in the 7th round two years ago and putting up underwhelming numbers in the Dub... They'd probably want us to throw in Nastasiuk in order to get that kid...

    He's going to be so disappointed when we win the draft lottery...
  7. Phaneuf traded to Kings for Gaborik and Shore

    Yup. Melnyk is a cheap f***. I actually feel really bad for Sens fans. It's one thing to know your team sucks. It's completely different to know your team sucks and the owner isn't willing to spend any money to improve the team. Imagine having Erik Karlsson and knowing he won't be around much longer because your owner is too cheap to pay him what he's worth... Sad.
  8. Phaneuf traded to Kings for Gaborik and Shore

    Because anyone can get traded, and that includes any current Red Wing, despite what those say about us having so many "unmoveable" or "untradeable" contracts...

    Beat me to it. Glendening to Toronto would be amazing.
  10. Rumors Thread

    Eklund is the epitome of "throw enough s*** at the wall and some is bound to stick". Zero credibility. The last thing this organization needs is another boom or bust goalie prospect. I know you don't have much faith in Mrazek, but it's still possible that he could be here for another 6+ years. Of course, it's also possible he could be gone in the next week... Regardless, we have Keith Petruzzelli, Filip Larsson and Joren Van Pottelberghe that are all boom or bust goaltenders at the same age as Samsonov. While he looks like he could be the real deal, as we've seen with Mrazek, goaltending is such a crap shoot. I'd rather bank on one of the guys already in our organization panning out, rather than bringing in another goalie at a high price tag. If we're trading for prospects, it needs to be for defensemen, centers, and (right shooting) wingers. Not goalies...

    Green is not going to get us a top prospect AND a first round pick. It's likely going to be one or the other, and maybe an additional piece, like a third round pick or mid tier prospect. Holland really has an opportunity here to redeem himself for some of the bad moves he's made over the past few years. Here's to hoping...
  12. Official 2018 NHL Amateur Entry Draft Discussion Thread

    I'm not too familiar with "The Draft Analyst", but I'm not going to take too much stock into anyone that has Svechnikov going number one ahead of Dahlin... Also, Tkatchuk dropping to 8th? Not going to happen. Stick to the real draft analysts, Bob McKenzie and Craig Button.
  13. Peter Chiarelli's Moves

    Hands down the worst GM in the league, which is exactly why Holland should be calling him every chance he gets. Draisaitl for Tatar seems pretty fair to me...
  14. Hronek

    I agree. Other than Dahlin of course.
