#2676708 Dustin Brown losing captaincy

Posted by F.Michael on 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.




#2676685 Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

Posted by F.Michael on 27 May 2016 - 02:08 PM

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.




#2676616 Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

UPDATE: The #RedWings have acquired prospect Dylan Sadowy from San Jose for a third-round draft pick in 2017.

 

 


I watched him his entire OHL career here in Saginaw (until he was traded half way through the season last year, which is typical in the OHL), and Wings fans should be excited. I'd argue he's a little tougher version of Abdelkader with a better scoring touch. He was always the first one to jump in & defend his teammates. Was a good captain here. Great pick-up!

The idea of our beloved Detroit Red Wings adding some players who play with an edge makes my head woozy with delight.


Right. Cause we've NEVER had that type of player on the wings

Years ago we did, but in the last several years - not so much.

The Sharks remind me of the 2011 Dallas Mavericks.  They've had better regular seasons before, more powerhouse rosters and higher expectations.  Yet, this season, for whatever reason everything came together at the right time.  They just got hot in the playoffs.  I knew after the LA series that they'd be going to the Finals.  First time I ever felt that way about the Sharks.    

I felt the same when the Blues got past the Blackhawks.

 

Anywho - the Sharks pretty much controlled this series - hope they go on to win the Cup.

Now he'll be living in one of those tall apartment buildings in Russia.  

Right down the street from the nuclear power plant where Homer Simpsonov works.

Would the Stars give us anything for Howard?  

Salary cap relief?

 

Howard to Dallas + Dats contract to Arizona = an opportunity to sign Stamkos.

C'mon Blues you can do this!!

The bandwagon will come to a screeching halt if the Blues lose tonight.

 

They need to win this if they are to have any credibility in this league...Too many years where they underachieved.
