  1. read what I wrote. I never suggested Mantha alone was enough
  2. With either one you're talking potential though. It comes down to who you think is going to be more likely to hit their ceiling, and I think that's Trouba. Mantha's biggest issue has been work ethic since before he was drafted, that's not easy to over come. As long as they don't demand another top prospect or a first as well (unless it's lottery protected) and you can clear enough cap space to sign him, then you do the Mantha for Trouba deal without hesitation. Of course, we all know Kenny won't.
  3. Blashill is clueless. He's taken Babcocks everybody has to grind mantra and doubled up on it. Not everyone has to play safe hockey. Wonder why you can't score? Let the guys push the puck.
  4. The problem is contribute doesn't mean come close to being worth that contract. When we're paying that much to a third line center for 30-35 points a year, that's going to be a problem. Nyquist or Dekeyser would have to go
  5. Wait. So you're saying he's NOT going to score 20+ goals a year and be the reason Holland gets fired? I thought he was.
  6. Even players who are relatively healthy slow down in their mid 30s, unless they're a freak like Jagr or Chelios
  7. If he's still scoring by the new year I expect a 3 year extension.
  8. No, they need top line talent. Nielsen is a second line center signed at least 3 years too ling. Vanes is a second line winger coming off a horrible deal and had a history of motivation issues. He's playing at a high level now, but let's give him a few more weeks before calling him a stud.
  9. Howard's problem has always been mental. Most of the time if he gives up an early goal or a bad goal he's toast for the rest of the game and sometimes the next three games. With his contract, nobody is going to want him regardless ofhow well he plays though. If he was on his last year, maybe a team that loses their #1 for the season picks him up, but not with two more years left.
  10. that's what I get for reading a yahoo recap
  11. Helm had an en goal and probably won't continue scoring. Historically he's nothing but a drag on a scoring line and forgets what makes him effective and he tries to be too pretty.
  12. Because we need Miller and Ott in the lineup and Helm and Sheahan playing on a scoring line.
  13. One more. Vanek is leading the team in goals at Christmas. Holland signs him to a 3 year $12 million extension. He scored 5 goals the rest of the season.
  14. Brendan Smith being one of the Wings' best defenemen is not a good thing.
  15. you can't just ltir someone. It has to be a real injury
