In Topic: Dustin Brown losing captaincy

Yesterday, 04:37 AM

Wonder if Brown has, or will request a trade?

 

Unless it was a request made by Brown (stepping down), or if there were some issues in the locker room - removing the 'C' is a questionable action to take, and IMHO a s***ty thing to do.

He can still play in junior next season as an overage, 20 year old, as long as the Colts aren't to their limit. Each team in the OHL is eligible to carry three overage players each season. It's up to management and what they think is best for his development. I'm thinking you're right though and he makes the jump to pro and plays next season in Grand Rapids.

Oh - thanks for the info...Didn't realize guys could play in major junior when they hit 20.

 

Personally I'd think he should try his luck in the AHL, but since I'm no GM I haven't the clue as to what's best for him.

Was pulling for the Blues, but now I'm hoping the Sharks win the Cup.

I agree with sputman, in that we likely had our eye on him a couple years ago, and planned on taking him in the 4th round until San Jose snagged him in the 3rd. I see him developing into another Bertuzzi type player, which can't be a bad thing. I see him as a bottom 6 agitator at the NHL level, that can also put up a few points. He's not afraid to drop the mitts, or go to the hard areas of the ice, and scores a lot of his goals in the periphery of the crease. I'm guessing he will play one more season in the OHL before he makes the jump to the AHL the following season?...

 

It's a bit of an odd trade for Holland to make, but I like it. I just hope this isn't his idea of being aggressive in the offseason... :lol:

Since he's 20 years old he'll be too old for the OHL so I'm guessing Holland will have to sign him to a pro contract (if he hasn't already), and spend the start of the 2016-2017 in GR.

LOL you can't be serious.. Howard is a hell of A LOT better than Lehtonen is and a decently better than Neimi is. All the Stars need is a decent goalie. They have two s*** goalies at the moment. One is locked in for about $6million that other for $4.5 million. $10 in goalies who can't deliver in the playoffs.. Nill is screwed with his goalies (and a lot of people think we have it bad). We could likely swap Neimi for Howard and let Neimi's contract run out (2 more years) as Mrazek's backup. Stars could make another run with Jimmy Howard and probably do better than they did this year. That team doesn't need a Patrick Roy, they just need someone above average. 

But what if Nill wants Mrazek ?

 

Truth be told - I'd just assume the Wings kept Howard - unless of course we get a respectable return.
