    Making an NHL team out of Ken Holland's 1st Round Picks

    Nah, you done good kid.

    Seattle claims Alex Barre-Belout. I am really sick of these expansion teams getting pampered. My God, look at Vegas, and now Seattle getting quality players when they don't deserve it. These teams need to go through the same sh!t the other expansion teams had to endure. Seems like Raymond and Veleno are here. But that leaves 15 FWDS, 14 with Vrana IR, one player must get the ax. Who will it be today?

    Ok, I am over it. I am glad that, so far, Raymond and Veleno are staying!

    IMO, any of Smith, Rowney and Namestnikov could've (and should've) been waived in order to keep Ryan. I don't get the Smith love. He is nothing. With this current roster, I see all of Namestnikov, Gagner and Stevens getting more playing time than Smith. Also, Alex Barre-Boulet is available via waivers, he is tons and tons better than Smith. It would also stink to fins out Yzerman passed on him in order to keep Smith. I mean, who makes these roster cut decisions? Is it Yzerman, or does Blashill make the decision? Please don't tell me it's Blashill, because that will be just one more reason to pile on the FIRE Blashill wagon for me.

    Not to clog things up any more, but I sure wish Yzerman would put a claim in on Alex Barre-Boulet. He'd be worth waiving BOTH Smith and Rowney, plus Namestnikov IMO. I am still holding out hope for Bobby Ryan. Also, I don't like Veleno practicing on the 4th line Right Wing. If he isn't going to get quality time, send him to GR to get more top minutes. I am very, VERY angry at this. Smith will do nothing here, he should've been waived today. Ryan EARNED a spot here, Smith earned ZERO. I question this move.

    Holland was not GM yet for the Shanny trade. He was acquired in 1996, Holland wasn't hired until Summer 1997, and I think it was after the 97 draft as well, so that one can be omitted I think.

    Here's to hoping Bobby Ryan gets a contract today! From what I understand, the final cuts are due today.....

    IMO, BOTH Raymond and Ryan have earned a spot. As has Veleno and Seider. We'll deal with the roster issue when Vrana is back. Send Smith, Rowney and Lindstrom through waivers. No big loss if we lose one or all of them. Zadina - Larkin - Raymond Fabbri - Suter - Ryan Erne - Veleno - Bertuzzi Namestnikov - Mitchell - Rasmussen Gagner Leddy - Seider DD - Hronek Oesterle - Stecher Staal Nedeljkovic Greiss Obviously lines and pairings not set in stone, it's a nice problem to have when you can switch around these players and it will still work!

    Probably told to take it easy? No need to get hurt before the season? It's not like he has to earn his spot anymore.

    Are they using different lettering this year? (NOW The Red Wings pre-season has begun!)

    That was a helluva pass from 86, Brubacher.

    2021 Off-Season (Too Soon?)

    Would anybody be opposed to working out a trade with Holland for Kailer Yamamoto? I'd say offer sheet him, but I think Yzerman would rather not cut friendly ties with Kenny. ...also, what's the holdup on signing some of these RFA's? Dahlin, Tkachuk? These teams have plenty of cap space. There's a few players I'd love to see on Detroit. What do you guys think about Patrick?
