    Remaking the defence

    https://griffinshockey.com/news/detroit-sends-pair-to-toledo?s=09 Viro and Sebrango to Toledo, so the D is basically this in GR: Edvinsson - Kampfer Lashoff - Johansson McIsaac - Newpower Glad to see Johansson make the cut, he's officially ahead of Sebrango on the depth chart now.

    Remaking the defence

    The top4 have been pretty solid this year. Maata/Hronek have been particularly good. The one decision to make here is do we bring back Maata next year? If this level of play continues its a solid yes from me. That brings us to the glut of bottom pairing D we have... Lindstrom, Hagg, Walman, Oesterle, possibly Pysyk if they play him at D, and also Edvinsson coming up. Pretty certain Eddog will make the team full time by next season. Who else do we keep for the 6th/7th spot? Hagg - like the Erne of Dmen. Physical and hits a lot, but nothing impressive. Biggest thing going for him is he's cheap. Lindstrom - Honestly at this point he's Hagg without the physicality. Nothing special. But the biggest thing going for him is his youth and RFA control. Walman - Big excellent slap shot from the point. Seems to have some spark to his game. Seems like a guy who would be at least servicable stepping into the top4 when needed. Oesterle - Having the bounce back season I was hoping for. Playing a calm efficient two way game. Would like to see him get on the score sheet though. Pysyk - An unkown still, but was well liked in Buffalo last year. In a perfect world i'd keep Walman and Oesterle and bring up Eddogg. But Lindstroms RFA status and RH shot means we most likely keep him instead of Oesterle. Which sorta sucks cause im really not seeing anything great in lindstrom. This should be a season where he cements his spot on the team but he just looks like another soft passive 7th guy. Not sure he ever amounts to much more than that. I would seriously consider trading him while he still has some youth RFA value. Id also entertain the idea of making another big UFA signing this coming offseason, and re-signing none of our bottom pairs. Something like: UFA - Seider Chiarot - Hronek Maata - Edvinsson Keep Walman or Lindstrom as a 7th I guess

    Ben Chiarot $4.75 x 4

    For once he has an argument here, and I'm starting to believe I was wrong, and this is right.

    Am I Wrong here?

    Here's how I see things right now: Strategy of the trade: Young core players: Larkin - Bertuzzi - Raymond - Seider - Vrana - Hronek - Husso Unlikely to be traded: Copp - Fabbri - Chiarot - Perron Hot trade bait: Kubalik - Maata Eligible for trade: Suter - Sundqvist - Erne - Oesterle - Walman - Zadina - Lindstrom - Nedjelkovic Little worth: Hellberg - Hagg - Pysyk - Luff Still prospects: Rasmussen - Veleno - Soderblom - Berggren I would trade anyone between and including "Little worth" and "Hot trade bait".

    ABDELKADER HAS CORONA

    This makes it seem like its less Hockey Canadas fault, and more like Canadian hockey players are just inherently bigoted. Yikes.

    Mo's Minus Malfunction

    Seider plays the most minutes on the team. Is #1 on the PP and PK. Leads the team in blocked shots. Leads Dmen in hits. On pace for a 41 pt season. If this is him at his worst I think I'll be alright. Who we need to use a distraction for blame is this Ben Chiarot guy. Who is he? I never wanted him. What was SY thinking? He ruined our defense.

LW C RW DOMINIK KUBALIK DYLAN LARKIN LUCAS RAYMOND TYLER BERTUZZI MICHAEL RASMUSSEN DAVID PERRON ADAM ERNE ANDREW COPP OSKAR SUNDQVIST JONATAN BERGGREN JOE VELENO PIUS SUTER DEFENSIVE PAIRINGS BEN CHIAROT MORITZ SEIDER OLLI MAATTA FILIP HRONEK JAKE WALMAN JORDAN OESTERLE Copp demoted to the 3rd. Ras promoted to the 2nd. Everytime they mention that newsy is from upstate NY you have to do a shot. Everytime they mention that hes a fan of the Buffalo Bills you have to butt chug an entire bottle of fingerlakes riesling.
  11. Raymond 0-3 in the shootout - SUCKS
  12. Refs are favoring Detroit - that call on Girgensons was BS Ras demonstrates his concrete mits but draws the penalty. Ill take it. Buffalo color guy just said "holy jumpin" on that Anderson save - f*** the sabres
  13. OMG now Seider is inujured This team SUCKS Larkin is a 2C Raymond is a bust Seider is a bust Chiarot is KFQQ Bertuzzi is an injury machine Fabbri is an injury machine Coppp is Weiss Vrana is on dope Kubalik is a pump n dump 3rd liner Perron is 45 years old Ras is a pansy Veleno is bust Ned is worse than Mrazek Sundqvist is ugly Rebuild and start over
  14. I'm watching the Buffalo feed. Interesting tidbit: They're talking about Lalonde and said "Yzerman hardly interviewed anyone and waited for Tampa to release Lalonde". Not sure if that's a poor coach search, or I trust SY that much.
  15. Ned sucks Anyway, one guy I'd like to add this offseason is Buffalo's #28 Zemgus Girgensons. Doesn't score much (he's also been stuck with the Sabres his whole career) but he plays solid D, can slot in as C or W, and could be had for cheap. Need to start rounding out this roster with some PK bottom 6ers like this so they can take PK responsibilities off the shoulders of our top6 guys like Larkin and Bertuzzi. Seider flopping - Mo really needs to get his s*** together
  16. Who scored for the Wings? just tuning in
  17. Attention all: Hide bo threads. Ignore bo posts. Do not reply to bo posters. Thank you.

    Seems to be a trend with Seider and now Kasper. "Some scouts question his offense" = SY guy.

    "Top Austrian U20 players: 1. Jan Klausman 2. Maximillian Fleisch 3. Adolf Eichman 4. Heintz Guber 5. Fredrich Ohlund 6............. Austria is excited to field this excellent team!" *** Marco Kasper was not included in this list because this is a list for amateur's and he is a pro

    Am I Wrong here?

    What if we exercise the 8th year on Bertuzzi to keep him? He would begin his final season at 35, and end it at 36. Also Roope Hintz just extended for $8.45 x 8. He's a fresh 26. Good comparable for Larkin and Bert. Bertuzzi 7.5x8 Larkin 9x8

    New New Prospects Thread

    Just curious why? He was a beast in the WHL last year and I've personally never been down on this player
