In Topic: Now for a #2 C.

Didn't forget him. Just not sure where he fits. He isn't a scorer. His best position is checking C, which is also Glendenings best position for 1/3 the price. In this day and age of salary caps you can't have 3.5 million cap hits as checkers-which helm will be on his next contract summer 2016. he is a GREAT trade piece. franzen cant' be counted on for anything. I doubt he makes it out of october healthy.
 
Adding richards is fine, not great. he is just holding that psoition for 1 year untill larkin is ready. Nothing more. I would bet good money that this move is a result of Bashill and Holland chatting about if he is ready and Blashill thinks he needs time. Just a gut feeling.


You've been talking about trading Helm for years. There's a reason he's still a Wing and that's cause bottom 6 guys like Helm help teams win Stanley Cups.

If possible I wouldn't mind Thornton, Phaneuf and a second pairing defenseman. I'm sure, with Thornton battling on the boards and giving some of our guys some on the money passes and Phaneuf with a more than decent shot out back, that we could generate a bit more grittiness and offense in a playoff series. I still think we need some sort of net crashing/goalie screening goal scorer. Joe has always been a setup guy.

Thornton + Pulkkinen = twine rips!

 

Cheechoo got 54 goals on a line with Thornton.  Imagine what a pure shooter could do with Jumbo Joe.

Easily ... Move howard and get a nice few additions will only help us be better and sign a veteran backup


Edmonton
San Jose
Philadelphia

Comes to mind right off the bat


Howard for Joe Thornton.

Exactly. He will get his chance to learn to play at the NHL level next season.


In the meantime he'll build up his hat collection. Let's put it this way...he has a few.

In Topic: 3/4 GDT : Rangers 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

how do most of you feel about our "subtle" interference?  I notice that the wings seem to do it A LOT.  however I don't scrutinize and watch the other team as closely all the time.


It's a funny thing that every team in the league does it but we only hear about the Wings doing it. And we usually hear it on NBC.
