    Dylan Larkin Is Soft

    We don't need to get rid of any of em. AA was enough. Why shouldn't Bert get the C? He's just as good as anyone else on the team and plays hard.

    Bertuzzi should wear the C.

    2020 Playoffs

    Philly has always been my #2 team. I've bashed them a lot over the years for their goaltending woes though..how can't you? They haven't had a franchise goalie since Hextall, it's ridiculous. They've gone through way too many goalies to keep track of, whether acquired through trades, waivers, UFAs, or any of their prospects..nothing worked. Was it last season they used 7 different goalies, or the year before? Their worst move was instead of being more patient with Bobrovsky, they decided to go out and sign Bryzgalov to a ridiculous contract and then trade Bob to Columbus a year later. Eventually bought out Bryz. But I guess at the time Bryz was playing well and Bob was his backup so they made the move. Hart is doing well though. They didn't force him into the NHL too early and allowed him to develop, learned from past mistakes finally. Hopefully they finally solved their starting goalie problem long term. *edit- 32 goalies have played at least one game for Philly since Detroit defeated them for the Cup in 1996-97. Thirty. Two.

    Larkin Next?

    Bertuzzi is the only one deserving of the C.

    Gordie, cause he could do everything. Richard was tough too, but screw the Habs.

    AA traded to oilers

    Your not wrong. I was speaking on the reason many seem to figure is responsible for the return Yzerman got. Lack of D ability. Would have been nice to have one be a conditional 1st, but it is what it is. Stevie nearly took less from Columbus. He’ll do well in Edmonton I figure. He can focus on doing what he does, skate fast and score goals. What I meant by “staying in Edmonton” was a scenario where he pisses people off and has to be moved. Which some think is part of why Stevie traded him, but no ones ever heard that from Stevie’s mouth, and we probably never will. Even if it is true.

    AA traded to oilers

    I wonder if AA will even stay in Edmonton that long? If there was locker room trouble in Detroit, it could very well continue there. Look at E. Kane. For how skilled of a player he is, he’s moved around enough. Some never learn the lesson.
  12. Getting anything for Green is good. Got a 4th. Salary retention and taking on a dead contract means nothing. Off the books after this season. Bye Mikey.

    AA traded to oilers

    Loved AA’s speed and scoring, and I will miss watching him fly down the ice, but his defensive play was non existent. Pretty sure that affected the return. Had his D game been better, a 1st would have been possible. Edmonton upped Columbus’ offer last minute, so it was def the best offer out there. With Stevie, the GM of a rebuilding team, trading away a drafted guy who scored 30 last season when there was no reason to (RFA), and should have been a piece of said rebuild, for two seconds and Sam Gagner (who most likely won’t be around after July 1st)...I think it shows that there was more at play here, like AA pissing off the coaches and locker room and needing to be removed. Later AA, have fun with Kenny and McJesus.

    Should the Wings try to sign Lehner July 1st?

    Your talkin bad juju.

    Should the Wings try to sign Lehner July 1st?

    I don't think anyone believes that will happen. Stevie has no loyalty to Howard. At this point, he's just a warm body to send out to give Bernier a break.
