  1. 2015 Draft

    Let's give him a little time to develop, shall we?
  2. 2015 Draft

    Hakan is still riding a rep built on a few guys he found decades ago. If they get a winger who consistently scores 20-25 goals and another 20 assists, it won't be bad, just won't live up to the hype some people put on him. Therefore he "sucks." Like most prospects, I'd trade him for a young proven NHL player in a second, though.
  3. 2017 Draft

    I saw Petruzelli when he was with the Jacks, and he was a beast in the USHL. He was #2 goalie on a bad NCAA team last year, I still have high hopes for him. I'm still not sold on Rasmussen, but he did show something this year. I still think he ends up as a winger though. The other guys? Who knows. Once you get outside the top 15-20 picks in any given draft it becomes a crap shoot. You find guys with a certain attribute that could be NHL level and hope the rest of their game rounds out enough to make it. Speed is usually easiest to judge, but a lot of teams are looking for that now so it's harder to sneak a good one in the mid to late rounds.
  4. Dougie Hamilton

    A talented player who's that young and has apparently worn out his welcome on 2 teams already is a huge red flag. Pass.
  5. Official 2018 Off Season *Rebuild* Thread

    I always thought Satan should have signed with the Devils and worn #6 just for kicks. With the numbers on his shoulders and back, it'd be 3 6's on his jersey Yeah, I'm with you. I like Carlson, but probably not at what it's going to cost to get him. If the team was on the upswing instead of still bottoming out, it would probably be different, but at this point he's going to spend his best remaining years on a rebuilding team and by the time they're good again he's likely to be on the downswing.
  6. Boqvist

    The only way I'd draft him is if he was head and shoulders better than anyone else on the board. Those concussions are a major red flag.

    Whiznooskee is a jackass
  8. Official 2019 Offseason Rebuild Thread

    I don't have many expectations. I have zero trust in Holland, any good moves are going to be a pleasant surprise.
  9. Rumors Thread

    Smart fans understood that if the cost of Suter was Parise on that deal, it was better to walk away
  10. Should The Wings Re-Sign Mike Green?

    Daley was better. He didn't put up as many points but got no PP time, and was better defensively. That said, if Green signs for a 1 year deal without a NTC, fine. But I doubt that happens. I fully expect at least 3 years at $5 mil+

    even if trading AA and that pick gets a #2 or 3 d-man, later 1st rounders don't generally amount to much on average, and that caliber of a d-man is more valuable than a 15-20 goal winger.
  12. Official 2018 Off Season *Rebuild* Thread

    AA and Vegas' 1st might get a quality d-man.
  13. Holland and Blashill expected to return

    Well, if an employee is under contract, then the team has the right to deny permission to discuss another job. If the employee's contract is up, there's no moral, ethical, or business related reason for other potential employees to speak to him or her about another job. It's not poaching or hypocrisy, it's business, especially when there's such a small number of people in said business and who are good at their jobs.
  14. Holland and Blashill expected to return

    Are people here really getting upset with guys leaving for new jobs where they're getting more money and a promotion? It's part of business.
  15. Official 2018 Off Season *Rebuild* Thread

    Nyquist is what he is, and what I figured he'd be. Some people got over hyped about him, and now that he's not matching up to that he "sucks" in their eyes. His contract isn't that bad, either. AA is all flash and no substance. He needs to figure out that there's more to hockey than speed and highlight reel goals.
