  1. I don't get these people...why wouldn't he do that??
  2. Btw...usually, you can disable status messages like that Tapatalk nonsense...
  3. Friend of mine said, selling all out at this point doesn't make sense, at least not for this years picks, because next years draft might be a lot better than this year...
  4. I can't get over the fact we're still playing him...over anybody...
  5. Which would be ok, if that happens to everyone. But it does not. What did Lucic get for spearing Danny, 5k?
  6. I hope Chris Illitch decides to sell Kenny...maybe to Walmart, they could use him packing bags. ......... What pisses me off the most right now is, as bad as we've been, we can't catch a break either way. Hitting bar and post when the game was still in reach...can't those things go in, for f***s sake?
  7. https://www.capfriendly.com/players/jonathan-ericsson Took me 5 seconds.. Oh, and when you click on "compare this contract", you get an idea how bad it really is..
  8. Heeey...this at least makes Blashill less likely to sit Ouellet for no reason at all..
  9. @kickazz: I wouldn't have complained about a 36 year old leaving after a one-year-deal, believe me. With the cap the way it is, the shorter the term on older players, the better..
  10. Players and agents sign everything that benefits them. Your GM gets paid for being smarter than them. It's as simple as that.
  11. Giving a 3-year-deal..there was talk about Pavel potentially leaving before... And, even more importantly...bad management for years, wasting cap with crap and thus not presenting a real opportunity to your star players.. I doubt Nick had even retired if this team had still been contending.
  12. I don't even blame Datsyuks agent. The guy is looking for his own money, he gets a share, so hell yeah he is going for the 3-year-deal.. You want to blame someone, if anything, blame Holland. And feel sorry for Pavel for (partially) ruining his own legacy in Detroit...for a difference of just one year...had he been signed for many years more and his daughter became seriously ill or something like that, no problem, go ahead, i'd understand it. But this way? Not so much..
  13. The best part about that is...he could expect to be able to, because of Pavels excellence.
  14. I completely dislike Larkin on the PP so far. If we want the % to go up, I don't know if having him on first PP is a good idea... Kid shines in 5 on 5 because of his speed, but the whole PP structure...not his thing so far, takes too much risk too often, losing possession too often...
  15. Because Nyquist - Helm - Vanek has been clicking and been or best line combination so far this season, I'd bring that back when Helm is healthy again. Give him 4-5 games on the 4th line to get his wheels back, and then try that line again. Unless we find a working combination on the first 3 lines in the meantime....haha.. Right now I would go with Tatar - Zetterberg - Mantha Nyquist - Nielsen - AA Jurco - Larkin - Vanek Ott - Glendening - Sheahan because Sheahan in his current form is a waste of minutes...if everyone was healthy, I would bench him...ok, might still be more useful than Ott and Miller, but that's about it. For the rest of the lines...AA is too talented too get wasted anywhere below 3rd line and I think that 2nd line could click, and with the slump Sheahan is in, having him center the 3rd hurts that line..put Larkin there. And for Jurco..play him 3rd or 2nd or don't play, but stop that nonsense of trying to make the guy a 4th line checker...that's just not him and will never be. I'd rather like to see the guy traded for a future draft pick than watching this crap anymore...
