  1. It's a risk either way. If we get one of the targets, XO or Sproul will probably be included in a deal. Fortunately we can only lose 1 player. But until a trade happens, its all guessing. You're right though, Vegas would probably ****** Sproul up before a 32 year old. As of right now: Protect: Abby, Nyquist, Tatar, Mantha, AA, Nielsen. (Now which forward do you use the last one on, Helm or Sheahan?) DD, XO, Sproul Mrazek LOL, the curse word filter, filtered out the word used for a quick grab! Rhymes with catch.
  2. I agree with Green, but, if we do acquire both Trouba and Fowler, you may want to protect them along with DD. But if we get either, it'll most likely just be one. In that case, for example, if Green continued his pace, I protect Fowler, DD and Green. With the way Howard is playing, if not traded at tge deadline, he may be our one player to be selected.
  3. I meant one of Tatar or Nyquist in my proposal.
  4. Gilchrist is lazy and he sucks... Calling GilchristFOREVER, GillyFo are you there?
  5. Howie is upping his value thus far.
  6. Glenn, Michonne, Abraham or Maggie?
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. I was pretty upset about losing him, but I was pretty sure I didn't make that statement. Then again, I have been known!
  10. 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)
  11. Just putting it out there that Jarrod Tinoridi has until 12 today to clear waivers.
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
