    DickieDunn got a reaction from krsmith17 in Looks like we have a goalie next year   
    None of the goalies in the system are close to ready and they wouldn't find anyone better in free agency, and any free agent would probably cost more.  Unless your goal is to go with garbage in net so they lose 60 games, this is a no brainer

    Nah. Jensen's not a Supreme Court Justice nominee, a Catholic High School student, a MAGA hat wearer, or in law enforcement. No reason for them to make stuff up about him.

    Go back to the day Mantha was drafted. I declared that Mantha would become the new Franzen and that one day, in a few short years, you would all turn on him
    Today is that day. Thanks for the thread.

    Half the problems are system related and non existent in game adjustments by Blashill.  Same as every year he's been coach
    Holland doesn't pull that, it's one of the few things I still like about him.  And he doesn't have to bench Abdelkader, just play him on a checking line

    They can name a team that if they like, I won't be offended. it's just a name. They'll never actually be as poor and stupid as me.
    Watching the liberals head-spin as they try to defend "rednecks" from cultural appropriation would alone be worth it.

    A bridge deal was probably necessary thanks to Holland's cap management.  Solid deal for now, but if he does explode like some expect it's going to cost a lot to extend him.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    IF he really means it and avoids anymore 3+ year contracts to guys 29+ years old who aren't going to be much use in 2 or 3 years, I'll cut him some slack.  If he brings Green back for 3+ years with a NTC, signs another Nielsen type forward, etc. I'll burn him in effigy.  Sign Witkowski/Booth level players to low salary one year contracts and let the kids compete for the jobs.  If they show they're ready, put them on the team over the vets, otherwise the old guy gets an NHL job for awhile until someone pushes past them.  Any signings need to be placeholders who are easily waived.
