I think the main thing people are bitter about is that he was such a high pick and never turned out. Sure - he is a guy who gives 100% out there but being selected that high kinda puts a target on your back. If he was a 6th rounder people would be applauding his achievement of cracking the roster to begin with.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

So telling the truth about his abilities is being a ****? He doesn't complain about his role. OK. Does that make him a better player?


 
Let's take a look at your previous post, then....
 


His mediocrity at virtually everything will be hard to replace. He's like a hockey version of Shane Halter.


 
...would we say that that is more along the lines of you 'telling the truth'? OR 'being a dick'?


It's 100% accurate.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Doesn't matter. He can't produce at the nhl level, even against 4th line opponents

He was waived too.  Maybe they'll be picked up by the same message board and live happily etherafter.


:lol:

Oh, Axe.

Emdog was serviceable, good to have in a pinch. For his sake I hope he gets claimed by someone that'll give him some minutes with the big club.

It matters when you are in the AHL.

the 41st pick isn't that high.  From 99-08 only 4 guys picked at 41 played in the NHL this year.  Emmerton, Tyutin, Pavelcec, and BIckell.  Not exactly a bunch of all stars.

Not just Wings players aren't being claimed...nobody is being claimed off waivers this year.

 

In fact if your players are getting claimed off of waivers you probably made a mistake waiving them in the first place.

 

Fans are notoriously innaccurate when it comes to trade predictions, if the Wings are going to bring someone good (#1 Defenceman, or top 6 forward) into the fold its going to cost some young pieces that we as fans don't want to lose. (Mantha, Mrazek, Sproul, Nyquist, Jurco or Tatar etc.)

That's why next season the free agents can go and be replaced by Griffins. Gonna have to make room down there for the next batch of prospects

May be it's time for him to try himself in Europe. I think he could fit in on larger rinks
