    Wings acquire Adam Erne from Tampa

    Its easy when youre given Jordan and Kobe. Thats like Ken Holland saying you build teams by drafting slick right handed centers, hidden gems in Sweden, and defectors from Russia before other teams do. God, i almost nut everytime i think about the Wings having Bure and Konstantinov from 1992 to 2009. Holy Lord.

    Let me go back 5 years and check out what you were saying about Dylan Larkin pre draft. Oh yah. Absolutely NOTHING. If you want to say Button underestimated Larkin's ceiling, fine. But at the time, we had ONE burner on our team and it was Helm. That's why he put out the most succinct comparison to a Red Wings player he could. Helm with hands. Here are Button's full comments. Will probably put you all at ease on this. “Think of Darren Helm but better scoring ability,” said TSN scout Craig Button. “He’s got that type of disruptive speed. He comes at you defensively. He comes at you offensively. He played (hurt) at the (world) U-18 tournament where USA won gold and he just kept playing through it. He’s got guts, lots of skill, lots of speed.”

    The only part of this that pisses me off is the A. Switch that to an N.

    I would love to have Kronwall as player/coach for 2 years. 20-30 games a year on the ice, 50-60 behind the bench. I like that dude.

    I think the only thing Button missed is that Larkin has MUCH more scoring ability. 10 other NHL teams missed that too, tho. At the time, that analysis seems pretty accurate if you only have a few words to get your point across. 5 years later, it turns out the comparison to a poor mans Crosby is a bit more accurate than Helm with more scoring ability.

    Isnt that pretty accurate for Larkin?

    Larkin for the C

    I see what you are saying.

    Larkin for the C

    Thank you. Would you attribute AA's weaker advanced stats to quality of linemates? Mantha has a clear advantage in Corsi/Fenwick, but I would attribute that to Larkin. Not to take away from Mantha, as Larkin needs a guy that can bury it from 15' in. Mantha is one of our best shooters, so he definitely contributes to Larkins success.

    I will pay up before another bet is made. You are in toronto? What arena is closest?

    Larkin for the C

    Or playing on the 3rd line for the first 50 games. You put Mantha with Nielsen and Vanek for 50 games and Athanasiou with Larkin and Bertuzzi for that stretch, everyone would be hammering Mantha like he was Jonathan Ericsson. I cant wait to watch you squirm and wiggle this upcoming season. You dont realize yet that the rest of the league is aware of the Mantha-Larkin-Bertuzzi line. For some reason, you think they are just going to be an unstoppable force for 10 straight seasons. Here's some truth for you - the other teams are going to stop em. And Blashill is going to juggle the lines. And Mantha isnt going to be left wide open in the slot when he doesnt have Larkin commanding the attention of 2 defenders. Mantha will get 40-50 pts. If you are expecting 60-70, you might want to tone that down a bit.

    Dude, RELAX. Kipwinger is just a stubborn ol cuss is all. You can present evidence that the greatest player to ever play hockey feels the same way you do, and he still wont back off. Dont let him bug you. Everyone else can see when he is wrong. Ha! KRS and I battle regularly. But he isnt as knuckleheaded as you. Hes just wrong sometimes.
