Next year, we are going to have a logjam at D. I'm wondering what people think about moving a few of our offensively inclined defensemen to wing.

Hank-Dats-Ericsson
Franzen-Filppula-Kronwall
Brunner-Andersson-Nyquist
Tatar-Emmerton-Eaves

Tootoo/Sheahan/Miller

Kindl-Dekeyser
Quincey-Smith
Lashoff-Almquist

Howard
Gustavsson

Would never happen... More likely to see smith up ther with E, but even that would never happen.

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

I can see Ericsson move to wing for a game as part of an experiment. He did start playing hockey on offense, after all. Kronner...no.

I could see one of the prospects, McKee or Nedomlel making the change, as it would give us a heavyweight enforcer on the team.

But not the 2 mentioned in the posters topic.


"What are you guys doing?" Reggie Dunlop
"Putting on the foil coach" Jeff Hanson
"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop
"Make sure they don't leave the bench!" Reggie Dunlop.

Its just an idea. I hate the thought of having to trade a good defenseman because we have too many. I'd rather find a spot for our good players instead of letting guys like Cleary and Samuelsson play because they have a "RW" next to their name.

Cleary= UFA who won't be resigned

Sammy= Amnesty buy out

 

Plus Nyquist, Tatar, & Andersson will all be up with the big club next year.  No room & definitely no need to transition the Wings top pairing d-men up to forward.


Money on the Board 2014: $5 per series, $5 per sweep, $5 per Kronwalling, $10 per Marchand Kronwalling, $1 per Zetterberg game, $1 per 2013 Calder Cup roster player goal

Put Kronner with Toots and Abby, then they can just hit/destroy anyone that dares to get anywhere near the puck. By the end of the first period, the other team will be running out of healthy bodies to put on the ice.

Don't worry, Holland would never trade a good defenseman just because we have too many. Instead he'll just put them on waivers, or let them walk via free agency.

I also have thought about dressing 8 defensemen in 4 pairings, 3 lines of forwards, and an enforcer.

And we have all thought about how nice it would be to trade you to the Florida Panthers forums, in the words of the Rolling Stones " You can't always get what you want " 


"Hard Work Beats Talent When Talent Refuses to Work Hard"

 

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

While we are on the topic of crazy hockey, I always wondered if we only put 4 skaters on the ice all game if we could start two goalies.

No, but we could have 6 skaters and no goalies.  If you could convince one crazy shot-blocker (see Lilja, Andreas) to stay in the crease during faceoffs in that end, you could have a man advantage, and the only real worries would be breakaways and an eventual lack of crazy shot-blockers.


Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

That would be too many men unless you're Pittsburgh. 

Although in the refs' defense, Crosby was on the ice at the time.

That sort of thinking outside the box will put you inside the box- for two minutes!

 

Don't go elsewhere.  Stay here.  It's the playoffs, and you don't want to miss the fun.
