    One of the weirder deals I've seen. Basically the deal is 4th for Sparks. Vegas didn't wanna pay anymore actual cash to Clarkson despite it not counting against the cap. So the Leafs said were cash rich, give us a 4th for sparks and we'll LTIR him ourselves. Leafs cap is unaffected, but they can''t LTIR Clarkson till the start of the season. So basically Marner won't get a contract till the season starts.

    It's a beautiful city till you step on a used needle in the park Meth seems to be taking over as the drug of choice though. You're allowed to have a few grams on you at all times for personal use. Wish I was joking.

    Zadina Says It

    There was an interview with Bergy I can't find now that went something like this: *Reporter shows Berg the picture from the golf outing where his guns look enormous* Bergevin: "Lol yeah I'm pretty sure that picture is photo-shopped" Reporter: "Oh, this photo isn't accurate then?" Bergevin: "Nope... my arms are bigger than that" Badass

    Not sure where Seider is player yet, at least I haven't seen it announced yet what the team has decided. He seems ready for the AHL already, but I know his German coach said he expects him to play on Mannheim's top pair this coming season (and hopefully the power play too). I would be fine with him spending one more year in Germany doing this. I expect Hirose, Kuffner, and Ehn will make the roster. With any of our 1st round picks being the #1 call up.

    How I suspect the Griffs will likely look this season: Rasmussen - Veleno - Zadina Puempel - Turgeon - Svechnikov Smith - Pearson - Terry Elson - MacLeod - Pope Ford Cholowski - Kaski Hicketts - Saarijarvi Lashoff - Lindstrom McIlrath Pickard Larsson The top line (if it materializes) looks beastly and well balanced. Big intimidating dirty areas and net front guy + fast center who can drive play + lethal sniper. Svech obviously needs to have a big season to return to relevancy. Kaski and Larsson should be exciting players to watch too.

    Nah I just admire bold, big-cojones moves. Taking Seider is that. I'm lowkey a big Bergevin fan bc of this.

    Zadina Says It

    Fersure. I straight up take Zadina every time at that draft. Felt like a huge win at the time. But that's my ignorance as a fan - who saw him ranked as top 3 in the media all year - talking. When we drafted him my actual knowledge of Zadina was "he score lot of point. Shoot good. Rank high." and that's about it. I don't follow prospects as closely as some do so maybe I'm the outlier, but I never really learned too much about him cause I didn't think we had a shot at taking him. But I trust our scouting staff knows their stuff, and so I trusted the pick and was very enthused he fell to us. Flash forward to November and December 2018. I've seen Zadina play a bit now in person and what not. He's not very good. Particularly he's lost in his own defensive zone and he leans heavily on his linemates for his own offensive output. I honestly give him somewhat of a break on the defensive side. He's learning a new coaches systems and adjusting to the pro game. IMO the defensive side of the game is much more cerebral and a thinking mans game. Which is why it's very systems oriented and a teachable aspect of the game. Offense though I regard as very instinctual and it's just sort of something you have to have. The Dman is the engineer, and the forward is the artist. I don't see an artist out there with Zadina. I see a player who is very one-dimensional player with a quick wrist. The most similar player I'd compare him to in our system is AA. Very valuable, yet feels very trade-able. Lacking depth of skill. Feels like a one-trick pony. Now I hope my beer laden sports watching opinion is very wrong. I hope he's simply the next Kucherov who's gonna pop off at 23/24, but I also realize how slim the chances are of that. I think we may very soon look back and ask why we succumbed to the media hype and didn't take Quinn Hughes, Bouchard, or Dobson. And that would be a critique I have of Holland. I loved when Yzerman took his man high in Seider this year. Screams confidence. Zadina screams "well we didn't think we'd even have a shot of taking you, but you're here now, guess I'll take you" Now I know what I'm saying is very premature and downer, but it's a genuine thought I have. If he lights it up this year I'll gladly eat my dirty muckraking words. If he doesn't though best believe Ima beat this drum harder. Something something Zagina

    You're not wrong. And it would have been interesting to see what Holland would have done with this off-season too. Does he make these meaningless stop gap moves that Yzerman did, or does he do a more Jeff Gorton approach and play with the big names to accelerate this *****? I get the feeling Holland would have spent more money this offseason for better or worse. I also don't necessarily agree with the notion that Yzerman needs, or is taking, a year to evaluate this team. He's been an NHL GM working in the same division as us, and by all accounts was scouting for us this entire past year. He also officially worked side by side with Holland until Ken's departure. He knows what we have and don't have. He's not evaluating this team. He's tanking. And yeah changing GM's because fans are unsatisfied seems dumb, but we do pay the bills so to speak. Gotta keep customers happy. The warm glow of Yzerman should keep a lot of fans onboard during the next 3 years of sucking. Fans: "Caertainly this is rock bottom for our franchise" Yzerman: This really connects with my inner 1993 university student studying sociology. Tribal tattoos will be cool forever. Weed cures cancer. We had a stretch of 15-20 games where we had one of the best lines in the league.

    The Wings missing out on Krug I feel like was a mistake that goes un-talked about. He was undrafted and playing in our backyard. Now he's the Bruins top paid Dman. But we gave $5 mil to DK out of wastern so we go that going for us.

    Furreal. Good on Holland. Not sure what Calgary is thinking here.

    Unfortunately he lives close enough to Detroit so that he and Larkin can meet up for play dates already. Might be harder to pry him out of there...

    Will be interesting to see how much of Lucic's salary Holland is retaining. Not sure how much this makes sense for Calgary... trading with your biggest rival as well. That said, If Holland retains a lot of salary and Neal doesn't tun things around... he may have just compounded an already bad problem.

    Thank you. Krug it is. Used to watch him when he played for MSU, before the bottom fell out on that program. Anyone from Livonia wanna confirm that he wants to come home to Detroit?

    And there you have it. At least we can finally put the last 4 years of Trouba rumors to bed finally. Who will be our new fantasy Dman now is the real question?
