  1. Gilchrist is lazy and he sucks... Calling GilchristFOREVER, GillyFo are you there?
  2. Howie is upping his value thus far.
  3. Glenn, Michonne, Abraham or Maggie?
  4. I think Z should sit this back to back. Put AA in with Larkin. Larkin - AA - Abby Tatar - Nielsen - Sheahan Nyquist - Helm - Vanek Miller - Glenn (he's not dead!) - Ott
  5. Going to have to move amounts that most likely reflects the likes of Howard, Smith, Tatar/Nyquist, and I think XO would be the young D going back to WPG. Trade Howard for a 3rd to clear cap, trade that 3rd to Anaheim for Fowler, trade XO, Smith, Nyq/Tat and a pick for Trouba.
  6. I was pretty upset about losing him, but I was pretty sure I didn't make that statement. Then again, I have been known!
  7. Lets keep rolling! Should be a pretty good test here! I was way off on my predictions last night, so I am gonna just say! We Win! (if Jimmy has another New York Night)
  8. Just putting it out there that Jarrod Tinoridi has until 12 today to clear waivers.
  9. Won't be able to watch. but I'll be listening on my road trip. I hope for another win, I hope the hot players stay hot and the cold ones heat up! Vanek with 2 goals tonight, 1 on the PP. Green and Larkin. Detroit wins 4-2. Empty net goal by Green. Nielsen with 3 helpers!
  10. Nobody took offense, I certainly didn't. I too think Fowler would be the easier of the two to acquire, but like I said, I'm holding out for BOTH! Uh....Sproul never got sent down, he is playing tonight and XO is a healthy scratch. With Kronner being injured they kept 8 D-Men on the roster. Even with Kronner on the mend, his cap is still there, so even when he comes back, they don't need to send either of XO or Sproul down. My theory is they are rotating them here and there to basically audition for the job when it does come down to crunch time, or a trade.
  11. according to @GREGGKRUPA, Blashill says AA needs to bring IMPACT to the team...uh, how about a top 6 role then? 4th line you won't get much impact from AA. How about we just send him back to GR, so he can play top line minutes every night? Sheesh...This is what I question about Blashill, his usage of players. Sure, for now, he's hit a winning combo with Nyquist/Helm/Vanek, but Sheahan in the top 6? Are they trying to showcase him? AA should be top 6, in the other thread I put him on a line with Nielsen and Larkin, Sheahan should be 4th line. Ott and Miller should be rotating in and out as the 12th forward. This is another reason why I'm glad Mantha isn't up, he'd probably be place on the 4th as well.
  12. I know in we aren't getting both, hell, we'll be lucky to get even one. But until all the tire kicking is done, and they are traded elsewhere (if at all) I can dream and hold out hope! BTW, with the roster moves above and re-signing Trouba, we are under the cap by $1.1M WITH Kronwall and Jurco's salary. Come expansion: Protect: Abdelkader, Nyquist, AA, Mantha, Nielsen (NMC,) Helm, Sheahan DD, Trouba, Fowler Mrazek ...if you are offering Vanek a contract, leave him unprotected and wait until after the expansion draft! Or if you extend him before, protect him in place of Sheahan maybe.
  13. Well until a trade is made or not, to us or someone else, we are ALL interested in watching what happens with Trouba. If the MODS want to change the title to Trouba/Fowler watch, that'll be cool too! Since those seem to be the main two guys getting most the association with Detroit. I'm still holding out for both, but I am not sure Holland has it in him to pull off TWO big deals like these! I think as it gets closer to December 1, the price for BOTH guys will come down, because the Jets will want to move him and get something in return and the Ducks don't want to have Lindholm sit out the entire season. Problem is, I think Holland will actually have to make THREE deals in order to acquire both. 1. Trade Jimmy for a pick to clear cap.(I've seen ARZ mentioned, do they need a goalie? What's up with Mike Smith?) 2. Trade 2017 3rd pick (form TOR) for Fowler 3. Trade XO, Smith, Nyquist(or Tatar) and a 2018 1st for Trouba. (No worries Smith fans, he is UFA in July and could be back! ) Its all so simple! re-sign Trouba for 8 years $5.5M per. Abdelkaer - Zetterberg - Athanasiou Mantha - Nielsen - Larkin Nyquist - Helm - Vanek Miller - Glendening - Sheahan Ott Jurco(injured) Dekeyser - Trouba Fowler - Green Ericsson - Marchenko Sproul Kronwall (injured) Mrazek Pasquele ...of course then deal with the roster at a later date when Kronwall and Jurco come back.
  14. This is going to be a test of a game, this team, much like Tampa, are one of the top 10 with a chance to win it all. I just hope we can keep PK off the scoreboard.
  15. He could score 20+ goals, can't see the future, but as much it was reported that they pounded the table for him, you'd of thought he woul dhave played in all their games. Weird that he's only played in 1. He'd probably have 0 games played here as the 13th forward. He just looked very good in the pre-season and folks are getting tired of developing players and then losing them for nothing. But I do give credit to those of you that said this was no big loss, it seems, so far, you guys were right!
