Mostly agreed.

I don't think fighting has a lot of value in terms of winning games, but I don't think it's valueless. It motivates neanderthal fans like me to continue watching bad hockey, and if you pretty much know you're gonna lose, hey might as well go down swingin IMO. At least you're just losers and not wussy losers. You have some respect left in the culture. I'm a Witkowski guy.

I think Ras should stay on the team regardless if he's on the 4th line or not. He's too dominate in the WHL IMO. I just don't think there's anything left there for him to learn.

In regards to Frk, how worthless he is is exactly why I favor Witkowski. Frk's cool, maybe he becomes a 3rd liner one day? Who cares really. It won't change a thing. At least Witkowski brings something to the team that only Bertuzzi mimics now? The telegraphed one-timers followed by misses wide is embarrassing bush-league IMO. Thanks Jeff.

Totally in support of benchings. Screw it. The culture's gone. Holland & co never found the answer after Lidstrom, Dastyuk, and then Zetterberg departed. Now we are left leaderless with a lot of B-rate players. Now is the time to punish bad behavior. There's nothing left to lose. Play kids and agitators/enforcers from here on out IMO. Play a game where the kids can learn with the big league and also be emboldened by the vets surrounding them. Winning is out the window.

Nielsen over Vanek and Nyquist? you must be joking

Yeah Nielson is horrible. He just is. Hated the signing when it happened, still do. Overpaid and unmovable contract Holland signed in a panic after Dats f***ed off home. Sorry, I mean f***ed off to Russia to play in another league.

Trying to get to the playoffs for another first round exit. Nielson is a playmaker on a team with no real finishers. Always had higher assists totals than goals, and his numbers haven't stayed consistent from season to season, save for a couple. Increase, decline, increase, decline. 33 goals/41 assists in two full seasons in Detroit. 6 years/$5.25 mill per with an NMC for the first 2, NTC for the rest. Christ, Kenny.

Some Isles fans wanted him back as recent as the end of last season. Trade him back for someone. Anyone. Preferably with a low cap hit. Open some cap Kenny. OPEN IT!!

Yep. If only. The Isles wouldn't take him back at the contract Kenny gave him, especially with all his old buddies leaving for other teams.

Wed be so stacked right now.

F***ing right!

Imagine if YOU could make trades... This team would have zero vets and 27 picks from rounds 4-7 in the next 4 years...

But man would it be an exciting team to watch...

If the first bold is true, then the 2nd bold would make zero sense.

Fans don't make the trades, as someone pointed out. Which is obvious. 

You said Nielsen is horrible. Then you said that Isles fans want him back. Do you not see the contradiction here? Fans don't make the trades, but fans also don't want guys on their team who are "horrible". Just another example of fans from another team having a more balanced view of a player than the fans of his current team.

You mean Abdelkader isn't the worst forward in the league? Ericsson isn't the worst defenseman in the league? Howard isn't the worst goalie in the league? Blashill isn't the worst coach in the league? Holland isn't the worst GM in the league? The Red Wings aren't the worst team in the league? ... that last one may be true this season... :confused:

JACK HUGHES HYPE!!!
