    2020 Offseason

    Maybe , but if they’re trying to make a hard push now keeping boeser would be the better bet. I wanted us to get podkolzin so i like him but hes probably a few yrs away and still an unknown commodity. Boeser is a 30 goal guy if they can get rid of all that salary +suter and pearson run out in 1 they can resign everyone and maybe even go after a hall in free agency if they really wanted to ... although if they go the free agent route , keeping everyone and going hardcore for a pietrangelo to play with hughes might make them a serious contender

    2020 Offseason

    Man i didnt even hear of it . Oh well , pretty sad to think most ppl dont want to come to detroit now . Anyways f*** him i was thinking with all the eriksson to redwings rumors etc .... any chance stevie can work on a deal to chase podkolzin?? I know we ended up with seider but if i recall i do think yzerman was really high on him . Not saying itll get done as the likelyhood is slim to none but maybe benning gets desperate and wants to win now and we can make a bold move where we take 2-3 bad contracts in a package deal involving him? Off the top of my head. ... Erikssson, beagle , ferland ... 12.5 cap space off canucks books , alot of money for us to take on but we got the cap for a few seasons to make the move eriksson+beagle+ferland+podkolzin+ 1st 2020 for ( we can eat salary and flip ferland) Cholowski rasmussen bowey 3rd 2021 ( both b.c boys and first rounders, maybe itll fish benning in) anyways just shooting b.s out there , know it wont happen but im sure yzerman will ask about podkolzin if benning calls us

    Give me showy youtube clips of lucas raymond and his very limited minutes played last season in a mens league over a 5’8 smurf in rossi who played with kids who’d get knocked around come playoffs any day Word on the street is raymond would eat an apple every day for two years to get s*** done, give me lucas

    Yes obviously its kopitar but like i said hindsight helps everything .... could easily been price or pouliot? Price or brule? Price or skille? Price or setoguchi? Etc... its nice now cause we all know how kopiar turned out but all those guys were picked before him and turned into busts while the “sure” goalie prospect was a star Again not saying raymond etc.. will suck maybe only one or raymond holtz rossi etc.... will be the true #1 line guy while askarov stays the “sure” #1 goalie ppl are projecting ...its up to us to pick the right forward though to make it worthwhile or we might end up looking back thinking what if Like you said not many goalies been picked high since price , ppl were going nuts over knight and he looks to be the real deal as well ... obviously we have to wait and see what happens when they get to the nhl but theres only a handful of guys people have talked about being a top 5 goalie pick . Askarov has been at the top pretty much everywhere hes played minus that tournament anyways like i said it just wouldnt shock me to see us taking him but im all for lucas raymond https://hockeybuzz.com/blog/Jeremy--Laura/Advantage---Europe-Yzerman-talks-pre-draft-scouting/275/106413 Nice to see he acknowledged raymond and holtz, best thing for us might be raymond and holtz going nuts in those 6 shl games prior to the draft .... and nice to see him mention germany and finland where stevie scouted hopefully he likes jarventie’s upside

    Maybe ,but considering how s*** we are he might be a decent option especially if he still hs chemistry with bertuzzi and fabbri . We just need to get rid of some deadweight

    Alot of people gave the habs s*** at the time for picking price at 5 though, you only know the right moves years later . Obviously picking a #1 center is huge but if the rest of your team is crap then it makes no difference . kings also had quick who was a stud #1 goalie for many years and a #1 dman in doughty etc... price literally has had f*** all to deal with and a bunch of smurfs on the team We can end up with a good 2nd winger or 2 c or a stud #1 goalie , who would you rather have? As much as i want raymond and want him right now if someone told me he’d end up being a 2nd line player popping 50 pts and askarov is competing for vezina’s yearly id change my mind and take askarov at 4 but we dont have that knowledge till later on again , stevie’s picking so nothing that happens on draft day should shock anyone (ill still smash s*** if i hear perfetti’s name)

    Pius suter is coming to north america ,24 and top scorer in swiss league ... we added brome and have a ton of kids fighting for spots and more importantly horrible contracts to get rid of but should we be considering taking a chance? i wouldnt have but i seen he played with bertuzzi and fabbri at guelph .... could be something to consider

    I can understand why youd be hesitant but i do think hes the real deal and can totally see yzerman pick him at 4 or trade back and taking him ... im all for lucas raymond but i wouldnt be flipping s*** unlike if it was rossi (sorry dont want a smurf who’ll be tossed around in the playoffs)or a perfetti(if we take him its only cause his buddies told him to ) lIke i said our division is extremely tough and someone else might even add lafraniere so i can totally see yzerman thinking we have to build a strong d core and a top goalie to fight back Hopefully we add more assets to move up ,unless yzerman goes nuts and trades mantha for a top 10 pick and take askarov .... im sure loads of wings fans would love that lol

    Ya dont expect askarov at 25 and later , if we want him we have to draft him at 4 or trade back .... OR like you said take on a bad contract for a 1st and package more assets to get into 8-14 range but i dont know of anyone who would do a 1st from this years draft Canucks with eriksson come to mind but i believe their first was already dealt? Anyways as amazing as it would be to draft raymond and askarov i cant see it happening sadly

    Maybe its just me butt I dont remember makar and pettersson being touted as top 2-3 guys? Hughes likely would have fallen to us if Kotkaniemi didnt come out of nowhere and arizona taking hayton , certainly earlier than 7 i wanted stutzle/byfield but im really loving raymond now , he was a highly touted #3 pick all year and he started getting fed few minutes of ice time per game which i think dropped his stock . Theres 6 games for raymond/holtz next season before the draft , maybe the best thing for us is if raymond goes off for like 10 pts in 6 games and yzerman will have no choice but to take him .... unless we end up with stutzle cause of it , either way we win .

    I can totally see it happening , if hes suppose to be that damn good we might have no choice . If lafraniere ends up being in our division .... ottawa coming up + byfield/stutzle ... bos,tb, tor ...mtl has nice prospect pool , if buff ever turns it around what f***en chance will we ever have? Our best chances might be to add a star goalie and add a hell of a blue line .... im all in for lucas raymond but it wouldnt surprise me at all to end up like #9-10 and end up with askarov and a few more picks ... scouts rarely salivate this much for goalie prospects so i do think he’ll make an impact If someones a cant miss prospect like askarov theres a zero chance they drop to 2nd ..l ugh i really f***en envy ottawa man if im them im trading up with that 3rd 1st and using some of those many assets and possibly end up stutzle drysdale askarov .... ughhh Really wish we had another first f***, oh well

    Im smashing s*** if we take perfetti , if the wings didnt fall back perfetti wouldnt even be mentioned as a top 5 pick ... that should say something . Dont take him cause he plays for your buddys team , id rather listen to hakan andersson and pick raymond . I think the one and only time we took a swede in the first from i remember is kronwall. Hakan must be salivating at taking a top swedish prospect for once

    Using our cap space to get assets

    Oh for sure thats why id demand 2 firsts to start with considering its 16.5 mill , maybe the islanders wouldnt give that up but goodluck finding a team who’ll take that contract for just a first . And considering they have 10 mill cap space and barzal alone will likely fetch most of that id say theyll be paying big to get rid of $ . I heard boychucks name being tossed around but last i checked hes like 35 and slowing down so i cant see too many teams jumping at him but i guess if they tossed us a 1st for boychuck id do it You forgot toffolli, theres rumors now they want to trade boeser which makes zero sense to me .... i think we should pick a forward this draft but if were dead set on drysdale id try and maybe see if a hronek for boeser deal can work ? See if benning bites i suspect the first player theyll trade is jake allen , no problem taking him on if they shoot us a 2nd + .... steen has a ntc so might be more difficult to convince him to come here but id have no problem taking both on for 1st + and then eating half of steen’s salary and flipping him for more picks .... that actually might be the best move for us since they both have 1 year and can maybe end up with a 1st and 2nd from stl? Then flip steen for a 3rd? Sadly after watching what happened to san jose i doubt we’ll get a unprotected 1st from anyone and unless its a real contender like tb i doubt wed get a 2022 1st atm and im not sure how 2020 draft will work , think canucks dont have a 1st and i think the draft is a few days after the season ends so maybe its all too rushed ? Sadly i dont think were in a position of power atm to demand the years Im still pissed off we lost out on the marleau deal , should have been a no brainer ... i know their in our division but if we offered a 3rd back or some better return we could possibly have gotten like the 20th pick and moved up for askarov ... oh well
