  1. Obviously it's in spite of Holland. I bet it will be Draper or Wright that talked him into coming here, Holland probably wanted to take him to Long John Silver's for dinner when they met. Moron.
  2. Frk played 2 games for the Canes. But yeah, pretty typical draft results, especially the later picks.
  3. You don't need to be a draft expert to see Rasmussen not getting primary assists, which is something centers generally pick up, and that he looks like he might be limited in the NHL. You don't need to be a draft expert to see that the Wings have needs at center and D and they used the 9th pick to get a guy who looks a lot more like a winger than a center.

  4. He should get credit for the good picks and other moves. And yes, people who just dislike him will blame him for the bad and give everyone else credit for success (Holland had nothing to do with the Wings winning any Cups, all the bad decisions were his, and Yzerman gets the credit for building the Lightning even though he started with some pretty nice cornerstones). And people who think he's fantastic do the opposite. I just feel this is a very underwhelming pick and there were better choices available. Rasmussen looks a lot like a bigger version of Clarkson. Vilardi is more of a center and still big. Tippett looks like a more talented winger. Or he could have gone with a D, which is a bigger need. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  5. No, but it's his job to make the final say Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  6. If he turns out to be the right pick, and I hope he does, I'll admit I'm wrong. But I don't think he is, so I'm going to express that. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk No, Holland stays in control another 6 years and it takes several years to fix his mess. 2031 is the next Cup, commissioner Crosby looked sick to his stomach handing the Cup over.

  7. Except EVERY report talks about his play around the net, and his lack of play making ability, at least the ones who don't​ make every kid sound like a future star. His stats bear out the negatives. Few primary assists, relatively low es points, makes his living on the PP and by using his size advantage, which won't be as great in the NHL.

  8. One is a center who can make his linemates better. The other is a passenger who collects garbage and relies on his linemates and size advantage, something he won't have as much of in the NHL, for his offense. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk Tippett could play that role without being limited to only that role. Rasmussen later in the first would be ok, he was a bad pick at 9, there were better options.

  9. Ummmm, yes he is, based on what both did. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  10. I know. I'm from the future. My name is John Titor. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  11. Rasmussen is the type of player you take when you have a specific need. When you're rebuilding you need to try to find a higher end player even if you need to take a chance on a book or bust prospect, not a guy who projects as having a ceiling of a second line player.

  12. Based on what is known about the prospects at this point, their first two picks were questionable at best.
  13. So you're saying they respeck da process?
  14. He sounds like Clarkson. I don't want a Clarkson type at 9. I'd rather take a guy who has a higher potential to bust but has a higher ceiling, or Tippett who was almost universally considered better but is a wing, than a guy who probably will be at least a 3rd liner but probably not better than a second liner. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk Who the F is Scott Wheeler and why do we care about his opinion? Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  15. Matt Millen had scouts too, he ignored them. Even if scouts were saying Rasmussen is good, it's his final say and he's the one who gets credit or blame. In this case it looks like a blunder. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
