  1. 12/5 GDT - Jets at Red Wings - 7:30 PM EST

    I agree that this game showed what they are capable of. But it was a given in my opinion. They should have been ready for the Jets after the fiasco. Its this next game with St Louis that scares me. Are they satisfied with themselves? Can they give that effort every game? That Canadien game should be able to motivate them for the rest of the year.
  2. Rumors Thread

    That makes so much sense. Get rid of a once in a generation type player that teams dream of drafting so you can keep a bunch of spare parts.
  3. 2017 Draft

    As of this morning I think we would be drafting 7th if everything stayed as is. If the first six picks were Nolan Patrick, Tim Liljegren, Nicholas Hague, Michael Rasmussen, Max Comtois, and Gabe Vilardi, who would you pick? My choices would be Foote or Popugayev.
  4. Mike McKee

    Can someone tell me what is up with him. I assume he must have a significant injury as he hasn't played this year. Thanks
  5. 2017 Draft

  6. 2017 Draft

    I have put Mittlestadt on my avoid list. Anyone comes so ill prepared to a camp that he cant do one pull up I have to question his commitment. Its not like he didn't know what drills he would have to do. For gawd sake come prepared. Wasn't Sam Bennett of Calgary in the same predicurment? For now my list is Glass, Suzuki, then Necas
  7. Wings Pursuing Top College Free Agent Spencer Foo

    Could we bring back and sign Joe Sakic? Then we could have a line of Foo - Frk - Sak
  8. 2017 Draft

    Martin Necas must have pissed off a writer
  9. Mike McKee

    Will he play in Toledo next year or at least get a tryout? Or did we let him go?
  10. 2017 Draft

    I'm picking Suzuki at one and Jesper Boquist at two. After that Mr Reeves you can pick all bigger guys if you want
  11. 2017 Draft

    HoweFanEvery time I read Dr Dangles report on Suzuki I become a bigger fan. He's not that small. He should be 190-195 at some point. We can draft bigger guys later
  12. 2017 Draft

    That works for me. I would just like to see them dish out a few hits instead of being on the receiving end all the time. I think our scouts can spot a player like that better than me so I'll let them decide. With the ninth pick I hope we get a high skill player because we haven't picked that low in years. Maybe Necas would be ok but I'm rooting for Suzuki. I don't want to waste a pick on a guy who scored one point this year ( Kostin ). Maybe if he lasted until round two but that wont happen. Maybe we will sign that 6'5' Swede to keep me happy
  13. 2017 Draft

    Well I am from Saskatoon. Although my personal preference is to pick guys with size, I would take Suzuki with my first pick this year. He isn't much bigger than Necas. Kostin is big but his scoring stats scare me away. After reading Dr Dangles scathing report on the 6'5" Rassmussen I would stay away from him also. I've been studying drafts for decades now and been wrong pretty much every year so whoever our scouts pick I will be happy with.
  14. 2017 Draft

    I'm starting to get worried. Kostin, Necas, and Tolvanen are all in the area of the nine spot. They top my no go list.
  15. Mike McKee

    I haven't seen his name in the box scores for Toledo lately. Did we let him go?
  16. 2017 Draft

    His red hair would look good in our uni. Susuki, Tippett, Glass are my wish list at the moment.
  17. 2017 Draft

  18. Mike McKee

    I see Mike got into a fight in his first game at Toledo. Anyone know how he did?
  19. Can we NOT suck at tanking?

    I hope we win every game from here on in. I can't chear for losing. Our younger players need to gain confidence that they are good enough to win. We will pick where we pick in the draft.
  20. 2017 NHLTrade Deadline Discussion

    Maybe if we can't get a first we should ask for Marchenko back. Then we could say we traded someone for one of our own players
  21. Marchenko ?

    Just curious. Has he played anywhere yet? I cant find him in any stats for the Leafs or Marlies
  22. 2017 NHLTrade Deadline Discussion

    Its disturbing that the young players have regressed. They are not responding to Blashill. That is a head scratcher in that he coached a number of them at Grand Rapids
  23. Marchenko ?

    When they took him I got the feeling of Babcock just trying to give the Wings a little dig. It was just kind of an annoying move on there part if nothing else. Now that they haven't played him a minute I think it isn't showing the player much respect. They could have dressed him a couple of games. If I'm Marchenko I wouldn't have many good feelings for Babcock. Kind of reminds me of what Babcock did to Commodor a few yeago

    Penguins just got Hainsey. I would guess Smith to the Pens is out now.
  25. 2017 Draft

    For arguments sake I'm going to say we pick in the 4-7 range this year. I have a suspicion we will take Elias Petterson. While he's not my choice I guess I wouldn't throw a fit if we did. He's having too good a year, and Hakan's influence will swing it. Personally I seem to be wavering every week as to who my choice is. The ones I really hope we don't take with our first pick are Tolvanen, Kostin, and maybe Necas.
