    2022 Draft / UFA

    Fair. I say it re: Savoie because Yzerman had great success with smallish centermen in Tampa. He reminds me of prime-years Tyler Johnson. But you could certainly make a case for Kasper being closer to what Yzerman would like in an 8th-overall forward. Personally, I'm Team Kasper.

    Bertuzzi and Hronek

    Yeah, that's pretty much where I'm at.

    2022 Draft / UFA

    I like Kasper @ 8. Say "Marco Kasper, Lucas Raymond, Moritz Seider" out loud. Rolls off the tongue. Feels right. 10/10. Would draft. Savoie screams "Yzerman guy," but I'm not sure he'll be available. Nazar would be great, though the thought of taking a winger with our first pick after the absolute dogs*** slog that was the second half of our season kinda makes me wanna punch myself in the face idk.

    New New Prospects Thread

    It's utterly surreal. Feels a bit like 20 years ago, when we were losing key vets and things were getting stale and we were all wondering what the hell we were gonna do...and then Datsyuk and Zetterberg just kinda happened.

    11/09 GDT "make it three in row" vs Oilers

    This, except every team and GM and player. This team – with Vrana – is capable of ruining a top seed's season in the first round. It has that f***-you energy.

    New New Prospects Thread

    Wings fans should be deliriously happy. I certainly am. Why? Because the impossible dream seems to have been realized; YzerMADMAN seems to have pulled a gem from each of the past three drafts. 1. RAYMOND Raymond is a monster – and this isn't even his final form. He's still... As I've said before, he's going to bulk up. He's going to get stronger, quicker, faster, more confident. When the rest of his body catches up to his brain and eyes and hands...look out. "Fluke?" Not really. The eye test, the underlying numbers, and his pre-NHL body of work all tell us he's this good (though, of course, he's probably not a legit 82-point player right now). Even so, I can barely believe he's been this good this soon. Dude leads all rookies in points and goals and +/-. 14 points through his first 13 NHL games. 14 points! FOURTEEN! "OK, yeah, but what about all NHL skaters, not just rookies?" Dude's tied for 6th in the league in points. At 19 years old. (Turns 20 in late March.) We needed a Pettersson/Pastrnak-tier forward. It appears we found one. (Hence needed.) F***ing pinch me. 2. SEIDER Seider's been exactly the player we all know he is. The only question was point production. As with Raymond, we knew the production would come...just not this much this soon. Dude's 3 points off from leading all defensemen in points. "Fluke?" Nah. Like I said, he's been exactly the player we all know he is. He's not, like, riding an unsustainable shooting percentage. His production isn't tied to an Ovechkin/McDavid-tier. I don't think he's really catching teams off-guard. We badly needed a defenseman you could mention in the same breath as Hedman. We found one, and quite possibly two... 3. EDVINSSON One of Edvinsson's teammates – a vet, I think – recently said Edvinsson's the best defenseman he's ever played with. In explaining this, he said something to the effect of "Dahlin was amazing. But Edvinsson is something else." Nuff said.

    11/07 GDT "Young Gun Invasion" vs Vegas

    In all honesty, I've been avoiding posting because I don't wanna jinx the run Raymond and Seider are on.

    So, Evander Kane...

    Eventually kip will have had sex with EVERYONE here and then there'll be nothing left for us to do and Matt can finally shut this place down for good.

    2021 Draft

    The way I see it, there are three big obstacles... ONE - We don't have the pieces. Or, rather, we do have the pieces, but we're not in a position to be moving any one or two or three of them and hoping for anything more than a wash (at best). No one cares about Zadina or Veleno or any of our prospects not named Seider, Raymond, or Edvinsson. Our 1sts are probably going to be later than 6OA from here on out. We don't really have any established stars on our roster, players that make other teams' fans drool. We're not trading Larkin. TWO - Buffalo would have to face Eichel multiple times a season – and you *know* Eichel would make a point of sticking it to them each and every time. Bigger picture: I really don't think "The Sabres and Wings were basically in the same boat and then the Sabres traded Eichel to the Wings and now the Wings are a powerhouse and the Sabres are shopping Cozens and Dahlin" is something they're willing to risk. THREE - I heard Eichel once suplexed a baby. Who the hell does that? Jack Eichel, that's who.

    21-22 Season opener vs TBL (7:30pm)

    The league needs to find a way to rig stuff so that we squeak into the playoffs and face the Bolts in the first round. I'm not even being snarky. Over the past couple years, Wings-Bolts games have slowly become must-see hockey TV. I fear the world is being deprived of some outstanding hate-filled playoff hockey. Larkin did nothing wrong. Being pushed in the numbers like that can't be tolerated. Eye for an eye.

    Rasmus Dahlin and Filip Broberg

    We traded 16OA + Datsyuk's contract for 20OA + 53OA. Took Cholowski at 20 and Hronek at 53. EDIT: Oops, beaten to it.
