    2018 Off-Season Trades / Signings / News

    The other thing to keep in mind, I don't think most players are willing to give up and walk away from $12 million dollars in actual salary. There's definitely something else to this story.

    2018 Off-Season Trades / Signings / News

    I think CapFriendly is just doing what they can to explain the situation. There's gotta be more going on below the surface. If Buffalo and their fans think that that money and cap hit are magically going to disappear. I think they're sadly mistaken. If it does just magically go away, I think there are plenty of teams that should file grievances. As far as this specific situation, Buffalo hasn't liked Berglund's play or his production, so he's been used sparingly and healthy scratched. Berglund doesn't like that so he's not showing up to work. To me it seems like this move was made to get things started before the Holiday Roster freeze and to make a point to Berglund -- that he can't just not show up. Obviously Berglund doesn't like his situation... and maybe he's tried to make his case and he felt that his issues weren't being heard or taken seriously. There's more to come on this story for sure.

    Has Blashill finally lost the team?

    You think he might have a boss that would light a fire? Oh wait. That guy's too busy polishing his big brass balls, toasting his past president cup winning seasons and having the help clean his Stanley Cup rings.

    Exactly. Less talking and more lighting fires under asses.

    I love the adventure that is Sulak on the ice, but I do believe he needs more time in the AHL. Also, Witkowski does bring SOMETHING... the desire to throw fists.

    Dotchin, NHLPA File Grievance Against Tampa

    So you all want a guy who's A WEIGHTIST making roster decisions?! For Shame, Stevie! FOR SHAME!!!
  10. I'm not saying the man hasn't made mistakes. I don't think he'd even try to pass off the idea that he hasn't miffed on a couple of swings. ...but Holland knows, if he's getting replaced by a shiny new toy, it'll happen. He's in rebuild mode. If the Ilitches grow weary of this process and, like CLR said, his shrewd moves. He'll be gone. ....but he won't be without a job for long if he wants one. As far as the Vasilievskiy pick specifically... coulda, woulda, shoulda. Also, we already had our future goaltender in Mrazek at that point, right?

    In the AHL? Also, I'm waiting for all the PainTrain slappies to come for me. (If there are any left on this board.)
  12. dunno if this has been brought up yet or not, but check out the gigantic balls on our current GM. https://thehockeynews.com/news/article/ive-won-three-cups-five-presidents-trophies-i-dont-look-over-my-shoulder-10-minutes-with-red-wings-gm-ken-holland

    So what you're saying is we have our replacement for Ericsson in Hronek and well... our ever rotating third pairing guy? XO, Lashoff, Commodore, Colaiacovo, Janik, Kindl, Lebda, Lilja, Marchenko, etc. etc. in the midst of life we are in death, etc.

    As evidenced by the season thusfar, amirite? Seriously, did everyone forget that NONE of our current defensive prospects, however shining and new they are, project to be elite top pairing defensemen. "Small-ish/Undersized, unrefined, puck moving defenseman with some upside." --description of nearly all of the rookies on our blueline.

    There is a balance to letting the rookies get time on the big club, and them floundering on a terrible terrible NHL team. Let some of these guys go down and get some time in the A. They'll get called back up when these aging stopgap vets inevitably get injured again. It's going to be an injury carousel on the back-end this year. I doubt we see a full compliment of: Daley, Dekeyser, Ericsson, Green, Jensen, and Kronwall. Even with all of them healthy, I bet one will sit for maintenance or healthy scratched for Cholo.

    inevitable. let's rejoice tho' at least he got a few games instead of being traded for ANOTHER AGING STOPGAP VET.

    Which Extra Forward Should Sit?

    Radio Promo for 11/15 game vs the Sens: "Don't forget to get your $20 ticket rush tickets for Saturday night's game. Watch your Detroit Red Wings take on the Senators. C'mon down to the LCA. It's Bernier Bobblehead night ...and Hey! Jacob (not Chad) De La Rose might die on the ice. Don't miss ANY of the ACTION!" Ok, moving the conversation into a little more appropriate place. Maybe de la Rose FINALLY makes a roster player expendable and we make a trade? Otherwise, his AHL numbers are pretty nice. He'll fit well in GR.

    I've never seen the Wick movies so I don't wanna spoil anything but please TELL ME WICK (holland) GETS HIS MAN!!! (hughes)

    Which Extra Forward Should Sit?

    So, a guy who's gonna take a roster spot, consistently be in the line-up and not score any goals? Sounds fantastic. "Lose for Hughes" mode started so much sooner than I had anticipated.

    Can he play defense? I mean, Witkowski supposedly can, right?
