In Topic: Is it possible to land Torey Krug?

No thanks.  A 5'9 defenseman can work on a team of giants and badasses and giant badasses.  On our team he'd just get steamrolled on the forecheck and he'd have half as many assists because the guys he'd be passing to are 190 lbs. as opposed to 215-235 lbs, and get knocked off the puck more often.  
Sadly, Torey's not the guy for us.  Good player though.

I see your points and they're valid, but if we could ditch Lashoff for him I'd be happy. Hahaha

He's a restricted free agent. I don't have any inside info, but I think the Bs like him. 

Question is do the Wings like him? We already know Krug loves the Wings. We have the advantage.

He is nowhere near old enough to hit UFA status. He isn't going anywhere for a long time. File this one under pipe dream, sadly

Call me a n00b but I don't know what the detailed differences are between restricted and un.

Babcocks system is fine it's the same own that won gold for Canada twice. Blash is very much like Babcock. I say we run NHL with Babs and AHL with Blash for a little more.

Babs already said even if he's not head coach he's staying in the D. He's made a home here. His daughters a senior in HS.

I'm not sure. I'm not very good at online searches.

We need to score first. We can't allow Boston to sit in their trap. They come out hard press the forecheck for a quick goal than they grab the lead and play the trap. They slow the game down and conserve energy to use speed when we make a mistake. They can't skate a full 60 at our pace. Plus they have the size to defend against dump and chase so we have to beat them on the boards with speed.  

We need to score first. We need them to chase and get tired all game long. In doing so we force them to open up which allows us to get in front of Rask. Rask was beaten 5 time last night. The post stopped us once and their D men stop any follow up chances. Rask isn't that good. It's his D-Men that are. We wear them down forcing them to chase and Rask will be a joke.
