  1. From the malik article: Holland didn't really say much of anything which isn't unusual. And no he did not say that, the writer did, it makes a difference.

    You're still paying for Centre ice until the end of the season. You will no longer be charged beginning next season.

    Oh pity all of you. You were saying the same before the Bruins game. No excuses tonight, Pittsburgh spent half a season + w/o Malkin and Crosby.

    It makes sense. When Howard is in net for game 7 of the second round wouldn't you want to maximize the teams talent on the ice (a good defensemen), rather than having that talent sit on the bench (Gus). He's played great and that's why I think it would be a good idea if we could get something for him. I remember for a little while people thought he was the answer for Toronto when they had Reimer and Gus. Now if Howard were to get injured in the playoffs it'd look bad, but it's also a matter of if your willing to take the risk to utilize the potential elsewhere on the ice. More often than not teams don't have to use their backup at all in the playoffs.

    PIT has spent plenty of time without Crosby and Malkin, and they did fine in the regular season. Same with the senators. I expect the wings to keep a reasonable pace for winning in these next couple of weeks.
  7. And what makes Bryz a bad one? The fact that he's interested in space? You're just jumping on the bandwagon that constantly bashes the guy, because he's been given this bad teammate rep.
  8. If we're trying to target a TOP defensemen who is everyone looking at in next years FA. Who else besides Edler is everyone looking at as a premiere defensemen. Murray? Kimmo? Yandle is young, he's signed for a couple seasons, there's really no reason to hold out on him. if Weber was still out there then i would wait. But that class as it stands is not worth waiting for.
  9. And considering Filppula's is a UFA next year. And unless he is bottling up his anxiety to get out of detroit, I assume he would resign with us, but you can't say that for the coyotes. It makes him a lot more valuable to us than he is to them.
  10. so....your table scraps for a young defensemen that can log 25 minutes a night. At this point it's not even about next year, with Weber taken off the market we're lookin at Sergei Gonchar and Kimmo Timonen next year on July 1st. A Top 3 Of Kronwall, Yandle, and Smith for the next 6 years is solid. Pull the trigger.
  11. "It wasn't like guys going out the night before a game and stuff like that. But it was not being ready to practice, or missing practice with questionable injuries. Not being focused." "I don't mind saying Alexander Semin's name, because he's one guy who has so much talent he could easily be the best player in the league and just, for whatever reason, just doesn't care. "When you've got a guy like that, you need him to be your best player or one of your best players. When he doesn't show up, you almost get the sense that he wants to be back in Russia. That's tough to win when you've got a guy like that who's supposed to be your best player not being your best player, or one of your best players." - Matt Bradley in an interview TEAM 1200 in Ottawa Aug 16th, 2011
  12. I'll buy that. He also tweeted last night to expect Salvador to sign in the morning. He definitely likes to toot his own horn about him beating TSN multiple times. Sounds a little unloved. Haha
  13. I've been following this guy for a couple days, I'm not sure how reliable he is but he's sounded pretty reputable with the semin situation, and apparently he leaked jäger to Dallas this morning. And he sound really anal about checking his sources. Anyway I didn't have the chance to post earlier, but these were around an hour ago. Hockeyy insiderr: "Had to be back early because of a text I just got from a source I trust immensely. Won't post it before I double check tho. On Suter. HUGE." "Couldn't verify with other sources, but as per one source close to Suter he has made a choice, Detroit. #RedWings Working contract details."
