I have been beating this drum since my buddy dated Dan's sister last year at this time...I seriously hope this is about to happen!  Having Him, Smith and McKee all playing together is a huge ego boost for all NCAA defensemen!  I STILL want Holland to acquire Welsh from Carolina to put up front!

 

You may or may not realize that I am partial to NCAA players.... :lol:

 The quality of NCAA players is great cause they have more time to mature before joining the NHL cause they generally want to finish school before making the jump and we don't have everyone wanting to push them straight from Jr to NHL.  There are few exceptions of guys who are ready to make that jump.  Sproul and Ouellet may be 2, but they'll still do their time in GR.  Dekeyser on the other hand would take the Schultz jump right to the big club cause he's matured enough to do so, and I truly hope he is a Wing as soon as the season is done.

You do realize that Schukltz played half the season in the AHL right? Dekeyser will need some time to adjust to the pro game. Everyone does. But by Jan 1 2014 he should be good to go.

You do realize Justin Schultz would not have played in the AHL if not for the lockout right?

Could be. But he is better for it. That is also the selling point for putting guys in the AHL. Either way, don't care. Just want dekeyser in a winged wheel asap!

 We can both agree on that one.

Sustr btw has just made it official:

 

 

No surprise, but Andrej Sustr, 6-foot-8 Univ of Nebraska-Omaha junior dman (UFA), has officially decided to leave school/field NHL offers.

http://www.philly.co...defenseman.html

 

Philly has already begun to court him...

 

Monday night’s opponent, Tampa Bay, might have the inside track for Sustr's rights. He participated in their prospect camp last summer, along with the Penguins. Many teams are interested, but a decision from Sustr’s camp does not appear to be imminent. It is believed Sustr would like to weigh all of his options. Vancouver, Detroit, Los Angeles and Ottawa are also among the reportedly interested parties, aside from the Flyers, Lightning and Penguins.

 

Nice to see that Detroit is showing interest in him....but I think he has a better shot at ice time from most of the other teams... It would be nice to land both he and Dekeyser for D depth! White will walk, Cola gets bought out or waived and maybe Kindl is packaged...dunno...even with Kindl around they could still land both those UFA's...

 

 

The Flyers were also pursuing Western Michigan defenseman Danny DeKeyser last spring, who decided to stay in school. It's hard to imagine the Flyers would have suddenly stopped being interested in DeKeyser one year later. More than 20 teams were linked to DeKeyser last season, with Detroit believed to be a front-runner. DeKeyser will be on the market once Western Michigan's season is over. The Broncos were swept out of the CCHA playoffs last weekend, so they'll await word this week whether they've qualified for the NCAA tournament.

 

This is nice too! (from the same article)

ok Kenny, just stop all this madness!

 

Trade Flip for a 1st, Nyquist for a 2nd, Kindl for a 3rd...sign Dekeyser and Sustr....Q is out for the season basically, White is yucky, Cola out, HUskins the backup...forget trying to get a superstar at the deadline...go hard after one or two come UFA day....use your two 1sts to draft Rychel and Santini.  Use your two 2nds to draft Fasching and Haag (he will drop) and then you have two 3rd's as well! Retool and Rebuild in the same season!

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

Smith - Dekeyser

Lashoff - Sustr

Huskins

Good thing about these guys is, nobody can outbid anyone else.  There is a rookie cap at $1M plus bonuses with a maximum cap hit.  So every team that is interested has to offer them the same amount of money.  It just all depends where these guys choose to play....

 

:lol: I am having a conversation with myself!

 Agree with everything but Kindl.  He's really impressed this season and I for 1 would like him to stick around even if over Lashoff.  Huskins is a rental for what was a horribly injured blue line.  And yes, White is yucky.

That is fine too. But since Sustr and Dekeyser will be looking for a job where they get NHL minutes, I was trying to make it so they could here... I know you don't want to keep Kindl and make him the #7 guy...and it would not be fair to Laser is Kenny signed these two guys and then sent him back to GR...I know its a business.  Hell sign both, keep everyone here and let them rotate and compete for the job!

 

Kronner - Big E

Smitty - Danny D

Sustr Christian - Laser

 

Kindl/Husky/Coca Cola/White

 

Could always pull a Commodore on White and Husky and trade them for Future's just so they can get a chance to play....somewhere....White may get you a late, LATE round draft pick...

It's looking more & more like Colaiacovo won't be back this season, Q out until at least the playoffs, & White's clearly in Babs' doghouse, so I could see DeKeyser and/or Sustr getting time with the big club right away if they signed.  Say something like:

 

Kronner-Lashoff

Smith-E

DeKeyser-Kindl/Sustr/Huskins

 

Trade White back to Carolina for a pick, Cola can provide depth if he ever makes it back, & have Q ready to go by the first round and if they need some spot help in the meantime, see what Almquist could bring for a couple of games.  On an unrelated note, anyone think Kenny brings Jarnkrok over to GR now that he's been bumped from the playoffs?

Na, I don't see either or those happening really. Both are still real young. Both need to bulk up more yet. Both haven't played any NA game at all, besides Almqvist's half season. Just can't see the Wings doin it.
