  1. Pre-Season Games

    That's what I was thinking. lol
  2. Pre-Season Games

    Very -- dare I say it -- Zetterbergian.
  3. Pre-Season Games

    Holy crap, Larkin with an impossible angle goal. Nice.
  4. Pre-Season Games

    I'm hoping it's a comfort/confidence thing. I agree that he hasn't impressed tonight. And he wasn't impressive in his short stint with the Wings last season.

    Bertuzzi's more a Maltby than a McCarty. The hope is he can become a top-six version of Maltby. If we want a bruiser, Witkowski can do that, I guess. But we have trouble scoring goals and Bertuzzi has a scoring touch that Witkowski doesn't have.

    Rasmussen's lanky, but he does look physically imposing, difficult to move and outmuscle. In a couple of years he's gonna be a siege engine. Hopefully he develops a mean streak, a la 6'6" Martin Hanzal. The more I watch Cholowski, the more I like him. He reminds me of a young Toby Enstrom.

    Blacked out for me. Lame.
  8. Wonder what the odds are for the 1st overall...

    My heart says Svechbro. My head says Dahlin. "If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard
  9. Wonder what the odds are for the 1st overall...

    Agreed. At this time, Dahlin and Svechnikov appear to be a notch or two (or three, or four...) above the rest of the draft class. And it's widely believed this is going to be a relatively deep draft class, so that's saying something. We do currently need a top-tier defenseman and a top-tier centerman very badly, but Dahlin and Svechnikov are both looking like franchise gamechangers. It's not necessarily a stretch to say Svechnikov projects as a bigger, meaner Tarasenko/Kucherov. Plus, he wants to be a Red Wing.

    Khan on the Svechnikov-Larkin-Mantha line: That's what I like to hear.
  11. DRW Training Camp 2017

    I'm hoping Larkin and Mantha develop some special chemistry. Euro NA Twins FTW.

    Right. I wasn't really considering the cap situation, just saying those appear to be Blashill's ideal lines and pairings, cap situation be damned. Kronwall might go straight to LTIR, though it sounds like he'll be suiting up for Game 1. Someone will probably get hurt in a preseason game. There are whispers that the Pens are interested in Sheahan...

    So it's looking like... Tatar Zetterberg Nyquist Abdelkader Larkin Mantha Athanasiou Nielsen Helm Bertuzzi Sheahan Glendening DeKeyser Daley Kronwall Green Ericsson Jensen ...I think?
  14. Wonder what the odds are for the 1st overall...

    Nyquist yo.
  15. Wonder what the odds are for the 1st overall...

    Personally, I don't think anyone short of Crosby or McDavid is a can't-miss. But, yes, Dahlin is looking very much like a future franchise defenseman.
