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

13 May 2014 - 12:17 PM

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?

Quincey is serviceable. We don't need another team's Quincey, we need someone who's better than serviceable. Unfortunately, I don't see any of the better-than-Quinceys moving. At least not for what we have to offer.


MacDonald is better than Quincey.

Snow is believed to be looking for at least a first-round pick in return for the 27-year-old


I have to think Snow would want more than that but I think the wings could offer a pick and another piece.
