    2021 Off-Season (Too Soon?)

    Man f*** that guy. Second time he has taken a cheap shot to a Wings captain, pretty sure he gave Zetterberg a concussion with a punch to the back of the head years ago. Hopefully the league actually does something this time.
  3. Ok I get it now, you're trolling. Cool.
  4. Ya, winning the lottery and Zadina turning out well are the exact same odds. I'm not sure sure why I'm surprised to hear more hyperbole from you, honestly I dont care, root for him to suck.
  5. Everything except the bold I get. The bold is what surprises me, why wouldnt you want him to break out and become a stud winger? I'm not saying he will, but when you are a fan of a team you should hope that every player hits their ceiling.
  6. If it was me and I was arguing that a Wing was going to be a bust, my mindset would be that I hope I'm wrong. To each their own.
  7. I didnt put any words in your mouth, your exact words were: You are flat our saying that you look forward to Zadina being a bust. Sorry, but I find it odd that a Wings fan would "look forward" to that.

    Where is that being reported? I don’t see it anywhere.
  9. I agree with all of this, but I also want to add that I think Yzerman also shipped him out because Mantha wasnt exactly setting the best example for the young kids when it came to work ethic. On Washington he will be a a secondary role where there will be few eyes on him, and with guys like Ovie running the show and them being contenders, I have to imagine he puts in more effort. Here when it really didnt matter and he was supposed to be a cornerstone with Larkin, not the best spot for him. Win-Win.
  10. First off, I never said or insinuated that Zadina was even in the same stratosphere as McDavid. So lets just move on from that. As far as you wanting Hughes or Dobson, I get that, I find nothing wrong with that statement. We had a glaring need on D, and instead we took BPA. My issue with your statement was this: This statement is pure hyperbole, plain and simple. Zadina was the BPA based on almost all draft rankings which I proved above. As far as you looking forward to Zadina not improving 3 years from now, I find that sad. You would rather our #3 prospect turn out to be a bust so you can use that to mock strangers on a message board, rather than hope he proves you wrong and becomes a star winger. To each their own man, but are you even a Wings fan?

    4/18 Detroit vs. Chicago

    Sucks that Svech got hurt again, I'd like to see him play for an extended period of time.
  12. I'm sorry, but this is laughable and such hyperbole. Every team in the NHL had Zadina anywhere between their #2 -#7 on their draft boards. I'm just so sick of this tired false narrative that everything Holland did was awful, the way people spin things to force this BS is exhausting. Two damn teams passing on him is not "free falling". Hockey Writers had him going #2: https://thehockeywriters.com/2018-nhl-mock-draft-round-1/ Sporting News had him going #3: https://www.sportingnews.com/us/nhl/news/nhl-mock-draft-2018-picks-order-projections-rasmus-dahlin-sabres-canadiens-blackhawks-rangers/1wwd425dls1km1pjod5zbjj4sc Sportsnet had him going #5: https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/2018-nhl-mock-draft-fascinating-highly-skilled-first-round/ Pronman had him ranked #3: https://theathletic.com/342438/2018/05/21/pronmans-2018-nhl-draft-board/ There is no point, some people just wear blinders when it comes to anything Holland is responsible for. He could have drafted McDavid and they would be saying there is something wrong with him. See this is fair, I totally get the mindset that we should have gone D. With that said, and I'm not talking about you, just because we possibly should have gone D, does NOT mean that Zadina is a bust like some try to push.
  13. The kid is 21....even if you assessment is correct today, the idea that he can’t become a star is ridicules. Give him a couple years, kids looked good this year.

    I definitely see what you are saying, but when your friend is the best option out there, you are doing a disservice to the team by not hiring him. This isnt a situation where Yzerman is hiring a no name to coach simply because they are friends.
