If Dan Cleary comes back next season, he should automatically be given the Masterton Trophy for exhibiting "a high degree the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey".


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Keep in mind, Yzerman may have driven away one of the all time great Bolts...just saying he's not perfect.

 

That really, if you ask me, seemed to have nothing to do with Tampa. If Stevie wasn't pulling the strings for team Canada, I think St Louis would still be there.

Looks like #RedWings may have to trade for d-man. Buffalo's Tyler Myers' big righty, but would cost Nyquist/Tatar/Jurco/Mantha & high pick.

 

 

If KH does this, I will lose myf****** mind.  Myers is garbage, overpaid, AND would cost good young assets. 

 

Just don't do anything to make it worse Kenny. 

 

 

So Buffalo requires nearly 2 full lines of prospects for an underachieving dman?

As I said before, Holland is like a trust fund baby that ends up blowing all the money he was given.  He's withered this team down into mediocrity.  

 

Unfortunately, our owner is senile and is eating peanuts at Tiger games.

I once heard Tyler Myers described as "being like Jay Bouwmeester, except worse at everything". 

 

Sounds like our man...for 5.5 million a year.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Now isn't the time to trade. If Kenny thought prices were high a week ago at the draft...

 

Kinda convenient. "Well, we can't make a trade. The prices are so high right now. I GUESS WE'LL HAVE TO RE-SIGN CLEARY."

 

Do nothing, make excuses, rationalize, sit on your hands. The Ken Holland way.

Who is left?

The kids.  They might as well trade Dats and get something for him.  Give him another chance at winning.  Kenny could always go after Phaneuf or Byfugelyn, but I doubt he is capable of doing anything like that.  We would have seen some spark of capability when it comes to trades within the last 5 years.  We have not.

Yea at this point let's pack it in and try again next year. Nothing we do now is going to drastically improve our team unless we are talking a Shea Weber. Get a cheap one year filler and hope next off season has greener pastures.

Nill acquires 2 number 1 Cs in two years. We are still spinning our wheels.


Yes, but they're red wheels so they're pretty when they spin.

I think she was saying Mantha or Nyquist or Tatar or Jurco, plus a pick.  Not all of them. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.

Yeah, what's that all about.

 

We'll give them Lashoff (hometown boy from upstate NY), Jurco and a pick (2nd round).

 

 

Does Buffalo still think Myers is a rookie?


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

No, I think it's one of the kids and a high pick. Which, honestly, might be worth it.

That makes more sense and sort of falls in line with what everyone thought.

I don't really put the whole St. Louis drama on Yzerman.  I actually thought he handled it quite well given the circumstances.



Either do I that's why I said "May have", we'll never know the whole and accurate truth to that episode. What we do know is that one of the all time great Bolts did NOT say, wow, I really want to be a part of what Yzerman is doing.

How many years will the Wings repeat this same process? Translation: Been there, done that.

If we can't land Niskanen at this point, I would rather see some of our young D. The only thing I hate more than Kenny's lack of free agent success are his knee-jerk trades. Rental Legwand for a legit prospect in Jarnkrok and the Kyle Quincey debacle make me nervous enough without him being terribly desperate to boot. If we give up Nyquist or Mantha in a trade for some 2nd-tier d-man, I'm going to lose it...
