In Topic: Joe Hicketts

25 November 2014 - 03:37 PM






Joe Hicketts (Victoria Royals, Detroit Red Wings) – Hicketts may be undersized but no one has told him. After going undrafted in the past draft, Joe Hicketts received camp invites to both Montreal and Detroit. Hoping to impress after missing the majority of his draft year with injury, Hicketts did exactly that earning a contract with the Red Wings. Hicketts is short in stature but he is a full-bodied defender who owns a rocket of a point shot and the willingness to lay bone-crushing checks. He led the WHL team in points scoring one goal and picking up an assist in two Subway Series games. In the WHL, Hicketts sits first among all defensemen with 28 points in 21 games. Yup, get him on your fantasy hockey radar.

In Topic: Will Mantha join GR after the QMJHL playoffs?

Why is the Hockey media saying Mantha could join the Griffins for the remainder of the playoffs?


I don't know enough to know either way. but you'd think they would know right?


Why aren't they mentioning any paper transaction? If you search "Mantha AHL" on twitter all you see are reputable hockey analysts saying Mantha will join Grand Rapids if Val D'Or is eliminated.


I'm not saying anyone in this thread is wrong because I don't know. 

What I am saying is how does some anonymous poster on a message board know this rule but people whose livelihoods depend on knowing hockey inside and out don't? I'm confused damnit! :lol:

The Wings cant say they knew about it. If they admit they dealt a player that was definitely bolting they would be sanctioned by the league for not negotiating in good faith. It would also prevent other teams from ever trusting the Wings in any deals from then on. They will never admit they knew anything.


You gotta source to validate what you're saying there? like, in the CBA or something? To me, management having an idea of their players futures doesn't mean much. I really don't know either way and I don't want to google for it. You're not just making stuff up to make this trade look a little better right?

Regarding Jarnkrok reportedly thinking of heading back to Sweden after this season, it was news to Wings Asst GM Ryan Martin. @FOX17



What a freaking joke


LOL, everyone from Malik to LGW posters here trying to acting like management must know Jarnkrok is bolting or something to justify this crap trade. Then Wings Management says that is not the case at all. 

now what?
