  1. Targets for the Wings

    We can only hope the following tweet is true: @TBTimes_JSmith: #tblightning and UFA defenseman Dan Girardi "seem close - if not done" - per @FriedgeHNIC latest "30 Thoughts." Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

  3. 2017/18 reclamation project

    I'd rather we go after some of these reclamation projects, such as Grigorenko than any of the older UFA's. Low risk, high reward should be the approach. Only sign older players on one year deals, with the intent of shipping them out at the trade deadline. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  7. 2017 Draft

    Exactly. They overvalued his size. Vilardi was the best pick at this spot.

  9. 2017 Draft

    My guess is that Holland would be laughed at and told not to call again. There's basically no way that Silvferberg goes unprotected by Anaheim. Bieksa will either be asked to waive his NMC, they buy him out, or Anaheim offers an incentive for Vegas to not draft the unprotected player that Anaheim wants to keep.

    Or we're selecting the wrong guys in the draft. But then, maybe it's both...
  11. Wings in running for Filip Sanberg

    Copy/paste error. Here's the correct link.
  12. Wings in running for Filip Sanberg

    From Elite Prospects: "Undersized player with very impressive vision. Sandberg reads the game really well and is a skilled playmaker with good creativity. Good two-way game. Skates hard and well. Excellent team player. Fierce competitor and likes to agitate." Since we were interested in Victor Ejdsell, Hakan probably saw Sanberg and Erik Brännström as well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. 2017 Draft

    I honestly didn't see much from Shattenkirk that would make me want to even pursue him as a FA. The team needs a top pairing D, and Shattenkirk doesn't fill that need. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Wings In Running For Victor Ejdsell

    Despite some places reporting him choosing Nashville, still seems pretty up in the air to me My guess would be that the HV71 contract would have an 'Out' clause in it, which would terminate the contract if he either signs with, or makes the roster of an NHL team. The NHL contract might also be structured to allow him to play for HV71 'On Loan' if he doesn't make the NHL roster. This could very well be what's holding things up.

    If by 'Finesse', you mean smaller, then yes I would go for Suzuki. From what I've read, it sounds like he gets to the dirty areas on the ice, and is capable of elevating the play of those around him. I think he's about the same size a Yzerman was, and is bigger than Gaudreau. From THW: "It’s easy to see why he’s rising. He’s a center. He’s fast. He’s smart. He’s not done growing." Then there's this: "While slightly undersized he is not shy to play physically and go to the net or dig for pucks in the corner" What's not to like?
