    Mike Commodore's experience with the Wings

    not sure where the term originated from, but it is just that. "I'm the man for the job." Yzerman : The Red Wings need a leader. Larkin : I'm your Huckleberry

    Note to Coach

    Today I send down Ehn, DLR, trade Nielsen. I bring up Ras, Svech and Smith and sit Abby as the 13th forward.

    Do we know the reason the site was shutdown? We are still getting the Russian stuff, and the background is still out of date, did it get crashed or was it a maintenance thing?

    note to coach: Crystal Ball says that a line of Erne-Filppula-AA will be a great line. Try it, you may like it.

    How about Number16 or Number91? I'd switch it up and go RightWinger, but some ****** bag already made that account (of many) to try to make fun of me....

    IMO, something is wrong if The Net Filler, in his 2nd year pro, cannot bump Ehn or De La Rose off of an NHL roster. I maintain, we should've gone D instead.

    Not entirely, because I do agree, Trevor Daley is better than Bowey for teaching Puppy Chow, but if I am really wanting the yoots to learn from a top tier Vet and not a washed up Vet, I need to acquire one. discliamer: This idea is in no way bashing Steve Yzerman, like I used to bash Holland a couple of years ago...ok a year ago June.

    let us remember that Nick Lidstrom was real gud before his rookie season, but playing with The Beast Brad McCrimmon (RIP) is what developed him into the perfect human he was. that being said, Trevor Daley is not Brad McCrimmon. So Yzerman needs to get on the phone and acquire Ryan Suter to be that "vet" to teach Puppy Chow and then one day, Seider to be complete D-men. Get it done Steve, get it done.

    MacIssac officially sent back to junior. Pearson on SOIR. That gives us 13/8/2. I do believe the roster is now set.

    I'd be fine with keeping Ho Sang for the minimum games. Ehn has waiver eiligibilty. DLR, Smith and HS can be the 12th/13th/14th guys.

    a long time ago. But that's cool. Honestly, there are only a few things that I would like the see different right now: replace one of Ehn/DeLaRose with Smith I'd love for Yzerman to claim Ho-Sang off the waiver wire Replace Daley with Kaski Replace Bernier with Pickard I'm not too upset with the kids going to GR. Veleno, Svech, Zadina and Ras will get much better with the time down there. (hopefully) I'm ok with Abby, Nielsen, Helm etc...still being here,we aren't in cap hell, so ATM their caps aren't hurting us. I'd sure like to see some deals this TDL though! I'd like to add to this list. I just read that Nashville waived Steve Santini yesterday as well! I'd love for him to be in our organization too! Ho-Sand and Santini off waivers please! They can got to GR for all I care, but to just have them in our organization would be great! We're gonna need the extra D-man next season when E, Daley and Green are all GONE! If Yzerman to make these pick-ups, then we would know he means business and is in it!

    Uncalled for.
  15. I hope Pickard bumps Bernier down to waivers. this guy is good.
  16. Lol! "Dennis" Rasmussen.
  17. couple things I've gotten so far: Pickers has better rebound control than Howard and Bernier. Mantha gonna have a big year. Zadina not going to be filling nets. Should've gone D. Oh well....
  18. This is the official LGW.com 2018 NHL Amateur Entry Draft to be held June 22–23, 2018, at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Ok, since we are all (most) hoping we get a legit shot at the #1 pick, I figured a thread to discuss the prospects and where they rank would be a nice thing to have! We can also update draft rankings as they change throughout the season. Here is a September ranking I found of the top 93 prospects, but I'll only post the top 31. I'll add the link at the end for those of you who want to see all of them. This site also has some videos of some of the players to watch! Check it out and come back and comment! While I am officially throwing my hat in the Dahlin ring, I'd like to note that #20 has an absolute Awesome name! Also of local note, I haven't research all of the players, but #7 Hughes and #12 Wilde are both Wolverines. At #61 Johnny Gruden is from Rochester, MI. #39 Ty Dellandrea plays in Flint. Another sidenote for one of our 2nd's, Mattias Samuelsson is a huge D-man at 6'4 216lbs. at the moment. 1) Rasmus Dahlin (LHD, Sweden, Frolunda SHL) 2) Andrei Svechnikov (RW, Russia, Barrie OHL) 3) Adam Boqvist (RHD, Sweden, Brynas J20) 4) Brady Tkachuk (C/LW, USA, Boston University NCAA) 5) Filip Zadina (LW/RW, Czech Republic, Halifax QMJHL) 6) Joe Veleno (C, Canada, Saint John QMJHL) 7) Quinn Hughes (LHD, USA, NTDP U18) 8) Ryan Merkley (RHD, Canada, Guelph OHL) 9) Ty Smith (LHD, Canada, Spokane WHL) 10) Rasmus Kupari (C, Finland, Karpat Jr.) 11) Jesperi Kotkaniemi (C, Finland, Assat Liiga) 12) Bode Wilde (RHD, USA, NTDP U18) 13) Ryan McLeod (C, Canada, Mississauga OHL 14) Barrett Hayton (C, Canada, Sault Ste.

    I am way off on market value, I just don't think a player who only has topped 50 points once deserves $7M per year. But again, I am off the market. IF BOTH AA and Mantha topped 70 points, I see no reason why they won't ask for and expect $7M AAV. I'm hoping more for around $5M to $5.5M for each of them.

    News From Around the NHL

    I hope you're all right! I know Stevie is shrewd, I hope he can get them all signed to VERY friendly contracts. I bet that AA and Mantha both get 70 points though. I am thinking Larkin tops 90.

    This is outrageous. We are in deep trouble when it comes to AA, Mantha and Bertuzzi. What happened to earning this kind of money? I season of 77 points? My God!
  22. if Holland had drafted Quinn, Yzerman may not have had to draft D.
  23. Should've drafted Quinn Hughes. Zadina not good.
