  1. Axel scored today on a real nice shot from between the dots off a great feed by Svechnikov. From the little I've seen of them..they seem to have a bit of chemistry together I don't think the Wings are putting a great deal of stock in Ehn's offensive numbers in Frolunda...from what I've read he was centering a checking line and not given much rope offensively. The cliche with Swedes is that the defensive development precedes the'll see
  2. Janmark isn't in the AHL...he had a really nice rookie season in Dallas in 15/16 and then tore up a knee or something and missed the whole season
  3. was only 7 games though...I'd give him a looooong look on the 4th line before writing him off
  4. My biggest concern re Dekeyser is his lack of strength. The hope I had was that once he got past 25 or so his metabolism might slow a tick (mine sure did) and he could add a bit of muscle. Get that boy some dianabol!!! I would love to deal Green ahead of the draft. Let's give LV a 4th round pick and "make" them take Helm...or Abby...either one
  5. Vadim Shipachev.....Larkin gets a year or two more to mature on his wing Richard Panik...mean streak we lack. (RFA) Steve Ott...gritty and unpleasant to play against. Although we might want to give Lil' Bert a shot on the 4th line instead.
  6. Guys that play Mike's game don't usually dress for the playoffs so he was left off the playoff roster.
  7. I really like Owen Tippett...but he's a wing. If there's a C ranked as highly who can actually play C...A guy like Glass or even Suzuki...I'd go C. But man...Tippett would be really tempting. Good size and speed and a nose for the net.
  8. I really like Erie's C Ivan Lodnia as well...draft eligible this year ranked somewhere in the 30's by some services...might be a good pick in round 2
  9. I voted for Trump..I make my own rules as I go...
  10. Kronwall retires We trade Green for picks/prospects and eat some salary Vegas takes Riley Sheahan...or we could see a wild card there with some extra picks to throw at Vegas to get them to take whomever we want (Helm?) Nyquist_Z-Tatar Abby-Nielsen-Mantha AA-Larkin-Svechnikov Helm-Nosek-Glendening DK-Jensen Oulett-Russo Ericsson-Sproul Mrazek/Howard....soon enough Patterson as Howard gets dealt mid year. I don't think Coreau is an NHL goalie
  11. I know a lot of people HATED this pick in 2015, but I think we have a top four Dman here. Watched last nights Missasauga/Oshawa game online. Vili is smaller...but he doesn't stand out as being tiny. What stands out is his skating and passing and the way he QB's the power play. Defensively he's not very physical..but he's really quick with the stick and he handles th puck well coming out of his end. the announce crew from Oshawa called him "dynamic" and a "steal" in the draft. He maybe isn't Nik...but he's got Rafalski level upside for sure. Looking forward to seeing what he can do in GR next season. That Missasauga team has some serious skill. Owen Tippett is an elite scorer...he made an inside/out move that was highlight reel stuff and he plays with a nasty streak. DMan Nick Hague skates very well for a 6-5" 18 year old. Doesn't have a real physical edge to his game...he let a guy carrying slip past him along the boards instead of rubbing him off the puck. Buy I don't know if that was just a mistake or a sign of an issue. Could live with having both and nothing else from this year's draft
  12. Agree that there isn't the place for goons in hockey that there was before. That's a youtube link where Ft Wayne's version of Punchy the Clown attacks our goalie. McKee is sniffing around and wants a piece of the guy but i kept at bay. Somewhat surprised he doesn't take the little fellas stick away before jamming up his arse to turn him into a popsicle. Big Mike will some tickets in Toledo. We like our brawlers
