In Topic: Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Pleiness actually said the same thing yesterday. Some times they get it wrong, Holland loves smoke and mirrors. Just glad everyone is under contract now.

 

It doesn't help everyone in the Wings media is a lap dog for the organization. When they claim someone is "far apart" on a deal, obviously that reflects more poorly on the player than Holland.

I'm still a huge Jurco supporter. I think he has a ton of upside despite a pretty mediocre looking second season. The Red Wings botched his development last season -- he either needed to play big minutes in Grand Rapids another year or actually be utilized properly in Detroit. Nobody is going to do s*** offensively with Drew Miller and Luke Glendening. 

 

Hoping for a nice rebound from Jurco and ideally spending more time with Sheahan as his center going forward.

Obviously you're a hater because you don't think that he's going to score 30 goals this year like the real fans.

 

Sorry, I misunderstood your intent when I replied. Came across more snarky than intended. 

 

I don't necessarily dislike Pulkkinen -- I'm just not that sold on his game so far. Maybe he continues to score at the NHL level, but I also contend he has the highest bust potential of the Red Wings on-the-cusp forward prospects. 

 

For the record, I don't care if Pulkkinen is one-dimensional. Tatar has carved a pretty nice niche putting the puck in the net. I just question if Pulkkinen is even going to succeed with that one dimension.

Yes... Join the haters. We have cake.


Yup, I hate a player that wears the uniform of my favorite team. That was clearly what I was getting at in my post. God forbid anyone has a dissenting opinion about a player on a discussion board.

I'm rooting for him obviously, but I just don't see it translating for Pulkkinen. I personally thought the Wings should have sold high on him while he was tearing up the AHL. I think he's very one dimensional and that one dimension can be taken away by bigger, stronger and faster competition in the NHL.
