    Next win?

    Tonight? I hope you are right. It’s not like a win is going to take us out of last overall and the number one seed for the draft. We have a pretty solid hold on that right now

    Next win?

    When do you think we will win again? I’m gonna say one of the back to back Winnipeg games December 10-12 otherwise I’m afraid it might be next year. I thought we would be in most games this year just like last year but injuries and poor years from some of the vets could make this a historic season

    2020 Draft Thread

    I didn’t realize there was ten months difference in age. That’s significant. Something else to factor in when I make my choice lol

    2020 Draft Thread

    I really hope Byfield stays close to Lafreniere in the rankings. If we get the first pick I would like a centre instead of a winger. I realize we need help everywhere but an elite pivot is critical. Maybe we’ll get the second pick and I won’t be in a quandary.

    Goaltending prospects ?

    How would you rate them? They all seem to be doing well. For arguments sake I have it this way. Larsson, Petruzzelli, Elliasson, Brattstrom, Van Pottelberghe, Fulcher, and Gylander in that order.

    Mike Commodore's experience with the Wings

    I don’t miss Babcock. The way he called out Brendan Smith in the media for standing up to Chara in the playoffs one year was uncalled for. He ridiculed him for standing up for his teammates. Somebody had to. As for the Commodore situation why sign him? He was a journeyman at best at that point. It was known that they didn’t like each other. I’m guessing there were a half dozen other guys of equal skill level available. I think Babcock brought him in to bury him. I can’t blame Commodore for signing. Who wouldn’t take the mil when you are at the end of your career anyway. I hope Babcock gets run out of town in Toronto

    Nice list and good write ups. Surprised there is no Dylan Peterson

    2019 Draft

    I wonder if the Hawk fans are complaining about overdrafting Dach. Some people had him in the 7-10 range near the end. I could easily see Seider being in the 10 spot on a number of lists. Not that bad of an overdraft. Personally I love the pick. Of course I love the Rasmussen pick too

    2019 Draft

    Thanks CRL. Yes that’s the video. It doesn’t seem his skating is that bad. I think I read where Pronman didn’t like it

    2019 Draft

    As soon as I watched the video of Tuomisto taking the puck behind his own net and he carried it into the other zone where he lost it. The other team had a rush and took into his zone. He got back in time to strip them from the puck and negate the play. A 6:05 guy with that kind of effort I can learn to like

    2019 Draft

    I tried looking back in the earlier posts here but someone mentioned Seider very early and what a beast he was on defense. At that point he was a second round consideration. I looked up what I could on him and was intrigued by his size. Whoever it was great call

    2019 Draft

    Last year we drafted forwards when we should of maybe drafted another dman. This year it was the opposite. It worked out well last year and it will this year. Seider will be a big piece of our defense. Seeing that I never went to Europe and did any scouting I will trust the guys that did. If it was me maybe I would have taken Robertson at 35 but that’s because of what I read not any real knowledge. I like this Tuo guy more every time I watch his videos and read the reports. Hakan knows a little more than I do. I’m fine with all of his choices

    2019 Draft

    I think we drafted just fine. I like the Seider pick. In reading all the comments about all the top ten picks in this forum there were less negatives about him than anyone. Never heard about our second pick but I’m warming up to him. How can you not like a t-Rex. We are going to have to start weeding out some of our older dmen just to find places for these guys to play

    2019 Draft

    That’s surprising. I thought he was in the second round mix
