I love Z and Nyquist but the first line needs someone to stand in front of the net.


Cleary? Hahaha


I can see it now .... July 1 .... We love cleary he came here for less money and we gave him a verbal agreement so we signed him now for 5 years and he gives us depth we like him , we know him and feel comfortable with him etc... Lmao

Real life nightmare if that happens

Babs, is that you?

 

Better re-sign Bert or put Abby there. Even though neither of them are, you now, actually good at scoring from that area.


 

I think putting Tatar on the top line would be more of a novelty. Jurco is heavier and faster than Tatar, and already waaaaaaay better defensively.

 

I love both guys, but just sayin'.

 

Keep Bert and Abby away from that first line and we'll be fine. A guy like Moulson would do wonders, or Callahan if Tampa can't resign him. 

 

I actually don't love the idea of putting either Tatar or Jurco up top. You're right Tatar needs to be better defensively but it would be fun watching him play with Pav. Jurco on the other hand, I just don't think he's ready to play there just yet; maybe another year under his belt would help. Of the two I'd rather have Tatar there to start, and see how things go from there.

Don't give Holland any Ideas. 

 

But seriously you gotta think Cleary joins Draper and Maltby in the Wings front office next year.

Thoughts on trading for Reimer? His career numbers are pretty similar to Howard's. Possible 1A-1B situation, with the potential to bring out the best in both? Or just a really bad idea? I get that Howard's The Guy here. But...

Ideally I'd like to have Tatar be a scoring 2nd liner in the future. He needs to be "the guy" on his line or it just doesn't work out as well. He generates offence really well by himself and if you put him with Dats it will be too many cooks in the kitchen I feel.

God please no. The guy can't catch. He gives up terrible goals consistently where he shoots himself in the foot. 


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

Package Tatar, Smith and Franzen for Ryan McDonagh. Throw in a pick or another D prospect if you need to. Might be an overpaymet but I feel like with what we have and the emergence of Nyquist it's not that much of one. I know it'll never happen but I can dream right?

He's having a rough stretch, but, again, his career numbers are quite good, especially when you consider the team he's been playing for. Just saying, a Howard-Reimer tandem could be pretty sweet. Maybe.

on paper we could have a 4th line of Abdelkader Weiss and Helm next year

"Putting on the foil coach" Jeff Hanson
"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop

re-sign Legwand, trade for Edler....sign Morris, Mitchell, Vokoun. Done.

 

obviously keep the kids.  Kindl must go.

Must go: Cleary, Bert, Sammy, Tootoo, Quincey (we can do better), Kindl (disaster)

 

Must get: Top 4 dman

 

Don't need anymore forwards in addition to what we have. If we re-sign both Alfie and Legwand we are pushing Jurco back into GR or we have to trade Miller.

 

Don't need goaltending. I'm almost tempted to suggest we sign a cheap backup only because Howard seems to perform best without competition for some reason and when he is the workhorse. 

 

I can't wait to look at our clean cap sheet without all that trash in it. Weiss needs to pick up his game to make his cap number look more digestible though.

you mean get a healthy chance to start his game, right? I think he'll be great next season *fingers crossed*

With our needs for defence, and the cupboard full in GR just needing seasoning, a guy like Dan Boyle if he hits the FA market seems like a perfect fit. Exceptional break out passes, good shot, veteran presence and the important thing is fills the offensive top 4 guy need until Sproul/Ouellet/Marchenko/Backman/Jensen are ready to go. I'd overpay on a short term deal to get him with the cap space we're gonna have.

This exactly. You do anything to get Dan Boyle if he is available. I also think that we will attract good UFA defensemen because these guys know we have datsyuk and z. Then when they see how good our young guys are. This team looks very attractive for a d-man IMO

Anything including giving him a 3 year deal?

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!

Next Year:

 

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Nyquist

Tatar - Sheahan - Alfredsson (Jurco)

Weiss - Legwand - Franzen

Miller - Helm - Abdelkader

Glendening/Andersson

 

Deepest group in the league there. We have 2nd lines and an amazing 1st. That 4th line can be counted on heavily too. Considering what we paid for Legwand I don't see us letting him walk just yet.

 

Weiss is a huge "?" - if we buy him out we are still overloaded once Mantha and Pulkkinen make the jump. Ideally he returns to form and makes us that much deeper.

 

Honestly, we can work a trade here - we have Jurco (ready) AND Mantha AND Pulkkinen (ready soon) along with Glendening/Andersson/Callahan/Ferraro all potentially being available for 4th line duty. In one year we will see Alfie gone, but that just bumps Jurco in. We still can move other players considering we have Mantha and Pulkkinen. 

 

We are sof****** rich in forwards the possibilities are endless. We are also very deep in D prospects. The management have some scary decisions to make this offseason in terms of re-singing players and their contract lengths to avoid logjams in coming years.

 

One thing is clear - we ABSOLUTELY have no room for Cleary and Bertuzzi anywhere unless it is a organizational position doing something random.

I think Cleary and Bert are gone after the season. Quincey is the one I am trying to figure out.
