Well I would be pretty happy if he did actually score 60points and was decent in the playoffs but I don't see either one of those happening.

Anyone here mentioning Filppula being a Stastny is ridiculous. The guy was nothing more than a 3rd line guy that couldn't take a hit nor throw one. I don't care if he scores 50 for Tampa cause he would never have scored 50 for us, ever.


You know he did score over 50 points for us right?

Once. Every other year he was hurt or ineffective.

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!

More like hurt but still extremely effective or low on the depth chart or playing with players that barely belong on the team let alone in the top 6.

I like to completely disregard facts and reality to make myself feel better, too.


Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

I won't say he was a 3rd line C, but "extremely effective" is beyond generous if not wrong

Just think what 50 pts from Weiss, and a healthy Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Franzen, and Helm would mean for us next year. A 1st round exit against Boston wasn't a bad thing, guys have a chance to heal.

 

Add to that, full seasons from Nyquist and Jurco.

I don't think Nyquist will slump (hope not at least), but I definitely think he'll come back down to earth. Really pulling for Weiss, I don't think he should already be given up on.

That's the way I'm looking at it I think Danny and Nyquist will have a very tough year. Jurco a very good season.

 

Weiss is simple:

He needs to hit the gym like crazy and attempt the Gary  Roberst high performance school.

Filppula was 3rd or 4th in TOI a game every year but his rookie year and the year Hossa was here when he was a few seconds behind Franzen. He also always had capable linemates.

Flip?  Really? 

 

:nono:

He gone.

Let's get over it.

How come no one ever laments the loss of Hudler?  

 

Eva?

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

I do lament it.  Maybe if he was here, with one fewer roster spot, Dan Cleary would be long gone.

 

What am I talking about, it would just mean another kid stuck in GR.

I think from the reports recently, that's precisely what Weiss has been doing.

Weiss will have a good year if he can stay/get healthy hopefully.

Last year the team spent a lot of time crippled down the middle. I think this season strength and depth down the middle will be the teams biggest asset.

Without a doubt, Nyquist regresses a bit. If simply for nothing else other than less playing time, his shooting percentage will be VERY hard to replicate.  That's a career-year for a LOT of guys.

 

I think he'll settle into a 25-28-53 season this year, which will still be impressive given his age and experience.  I don't see him hitting 30 goals this season, but he shouldn't have to with an increase in production from the guys that were injured last year.  I eventually see him as a top-line guy, but this year he should succeed in the top-six and people need to temper their expectations given the circumstances.
