  1. DRW Training Camp 2017

    Svechnikov gets the first nod if a top 6 forward goes down, which will happen soon enough sadly. By watching him he's ready and should fill that spot nicely. Kid can play at the top level, thinks the game quick, instinctively. Only worry I have is that he seems a bit careless, might get hurt.
  2. I for one think the title is right on given the history of Cleary on this forum the last few years, with people dreading his return to the Wings. However since now two members asked for it, sure, I'll clarify the title. You don't do embroidery by any chance?
  3. Good old Danny boy is back, but not as a player. As everyone's favorite H St. James reports:
  4. Wonder what the odds are for the 1st overall...

    I have seen Dahlin play live twice now. He's 17 and it's his second year in SHL, Sweden's top league. Right now he's about 6'2, 180ish pounds. He'll probably end up 6'3-6'4, 190lbs with about Erik Karlsson's skill set. Think Victor Hedman from Tampa Bay with Karlsson's offensive ability. He'll define whatever team he ends up on for over a decade.
  5. Will Tyler Bertuzzi Make the Team Out of Camp?

    Ok stop arguing you two or you won't get any dessert. *looks at Khan's lines* Hm I gotta watch that second line some. We will loose a lot, might as well get some excitement factor in.
  6. Athanasiou Rumor

    I most certainly agree with this. However there is another bad dimension to this, which is that we only have 2-3 guys with more potential than this 'greek lightning', which in a sense brings him up as a prime subject. This was unheard of some years ago but our roster is in such a bad shape that he is one of the hopes for our future when in the past he would have been protected and not eagerly awaited for, albeit clearly noticed for what he might be possibly be doing in the future. He might crack, he might be a bust. But it's what we got. Can't let him go.
  7. Athanasiou Rumor

    I agree with this. Given the cap, you have play the angles to get ahead. Perhaps a donation to Andreas's grandma using an anonymous third party. I am not being ironic.
  8. My hype meter is completely non-existant. I am merely Hoping that Larkin will show star quality and Mantha will blossom out. Would apply to AA as well if he somehow stays on. That is All. I am sure something nice will happen but right now I can't see it.
  9. Athanasiou Rumor

    This is grim. No other way about it. That's all I have to say until this dust has settled.
  10. Athanasiou Rumor

    Any tangible news on this AA debacle? Been a while now. And we ain't getting any younger, nor is the season starting later. My stance is that we need him on the team, he's young and exciting, not perfect but makes people watch, including me. Has possible star potential (not super). All these points I have made before, I am just reiterating them. Could be that I'm old or trying to assert that this deal is somewhat important in my opinion, going in to LCA.
  11. Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    AA is fast as the wind and has the hands to finish at the goal line. He has The excitement factor, which should play as to the price, raising it in my mind considerably. I can see a team offering him 3 million for 2 or 3 years. Did we suddenly forget that this is entertainment and that the final customer still is the one paying for the National Hockey League? Eat my words if that was to happen. An outcome which would logically lead me start watching the Griffins for a year or two instead of the big club.
  12. Leafs waive Marchenko

    Agreed. We need Top talent badly and he doesn't fit the bill. Short of extortion, bribes or murder I don't see it happen though - unless (once again) we draft them. Which is chapter by itself, excessively written about. A rock and a hard place.
  13. Detroit Right Wings

    Now that's some serious diving for information. I always like to be surprised, this was a nice one, thanks for the link.
  14. Leafs waive Marchenko

    He looked pretty good in the international tournament playing for Russia about a year ago. Much better than he had looked playing on the Wings roster. Made me think he'd be much improved for us. It didn't materialize and I lost enthusiasm and had no issue with him leaving us. He'll probably be heading back to the motherland if someone doesn't pick him up, which could happen of course. No worries though, it won't be us that I am sure of.
  15. New arena construction updates

    In a Majority of countries in Africa this dude would be in serious trouble. Every part of his body would be sold at a price higher than gold. Better not travel to much.
