In Topic: How bad are we if our roster is now finalized?

09 July 2012 - 07:44 PM

I don't think the roster is that bad it's just unknown which understandably concerns people.

The offense as it stands is better than it was last season. I'll take Samuelsson and Tootoo over Hudler and Holmstrom, and I like the full time incorporation of some youth with Nyquist and Brunner. Tootoo gives the team an element we've desperately needed, and this would only be magnified if we are able to sign Shane Doan.

On defense, I think Brendan Smith is ready to step in and fulfill Brad Stuart's role. I really don't think he will be a huge loss. Obviously you dont replace Nick Lidstrom, but Kronwall, Ericsson, Quincey, and Kindl all have the potential to get better.

I expect a lot of growth from within and if we open the season with the current roster I'd expect a 5 or a 6 seed.

This would definitely help us be aggressive this off-season. Holland would have to worry less about the following off-season where Howard, Filppula, B. Smith, Nyquist, D. Miller, and Ian White should all get nice raises.

I've asked this twice and everyone is ignoring the question! Can someone answer this? I've seen on youtube he plays left mostly from the highlights I've seen.


Nobody is answering you because people on here don't watch enough hockey to be able to tell and are basing this trade on the Kyle Quincey from three years ago.

#5 for sure
#13 on the right track
#40 has a lot of work to do but it's possible.


This honor should be a no brainer as mentioned. If you have to debate it, then no. This isnt Colorado.
