#2522096 2014 draft thoughts.

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 29 May 2014 - 11:47 AM

I still think the Wings could try to package a defenseman or 2 and try to move into top 5

I think that Kindl will be gone to a different team before the 1st round of the draft is over.

Exactly. Same as Boyle. 2 year deals for Greene and Boyle would help stabalize the D until the young guys are ready.

 

If Holland goes the FA route, I would much rather he do this than sign Niskanen to a long term deal. We need to have roster felxibility. Marchenko, Backman, Ouellet, and Sproul could all be legit NHLers in 2 years.

I agree.  I want to see 1 year stop gap contracts instead of 2 like Colo and Sammy.  The only long term contract I would like to see in the offseason would be Moulson for 5 years max.




#2522092 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 29 May 2014 - 11:21 AM

If Franzen wants to play in a hockey market that won't rag on him for disappearing for stretches where he can do his own thing on his own time, then please offer him in a trade to Florida for Nick Bjugstad.




#2520740 ECF : (5) New York Rangers vs. (4) Les Canadiens de Montréal

Go Rangers!  I never want to see the Habs win another Cup....ever! 




#2520738 2014 Memorial Cup

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 16 May 2014 - 06:20 AM

Didn't see a topic on this yet, so here we go. (And I'm not counting the Mantha to GR thread, this one deserves it's own)

 

2014 Memorial Cup starts tonight and Anthony Mantha is playing after a very short break from QMJHL finals.

There's the link to the Memorial Cup site with all games and timings.

 

Wings have Anthony Mantha and Tyler Bertuzzi there.  I don't believe any other players are Wings prospects, but the tournament should be awesome and Mantha should be showcased heavily after scoring 81 goals in 81 games between regular season and playoffs this year.  I honestly hope he never plays for GR.




#2520377 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Yes we had a whole new level of inexperience in the playoffs that we're not used to. I just think all the injuries and how many games we've had where the team appeared completely out of gas has something to do with preparation. Too many guys thinking they can get away with not putting in the hard work in the off season, practice and weight room. I don't see anybody talk about any of our guys being a beast training wise like Stamkos and other elite players

Aren't some of our guys signed up for the Gary Roberts is gonna make you a man this summer camp?




#2520376 ECSF : (5) New York Rangers vs. (2) Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 14 May 2014 - 11:35 AM

Don't even speak such words. If Chicago won the cup again this year I would cry

I'm still hoping that the Kings make a comeback and take out the Hawks.




#2520375 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 14 May 2014 - 11:33 AM

Go Bruins!  Would love to see a B's vs Rags series.  And I hate the Habs.  I don't like Subban, but I'd take Pacioretty any day.




#2520075 Canada can support 3 more teams in 20yrs

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 12 May 2014 - 06:34 AM

 

Toronto (Hamilton / Markham) could have two teams quite easily. Leafs will fight for it not to happen which is why it probably won't.

Yeah there was talk about Markham getting a team, which is weird cause it's basically just a different district of Toronto.  But whoever said Toronto needs to grow, i'm not sure they've been here.  This place is too big for it's own good, and is actually quite annoying.  The issue that came up with Hamilton is that it also fit in the whole geographical boundaries or whatever for the Leafs and the Sabres.  The Sabres also get a lot of Canadian business as it's closer for many and much cheaper and easier to get to games than Toronto, where you can't get tickets unless you deal with scalpers half the time.  Personally, I believe that the next place that gets a team will be Seattle and then QC.  After that, maybe Hamilton will get a team, but I really think that relocation should be back on the table for a team like Florida.  Nashville isn't going anywhere.  They have a strong fanbase from what i've seen/heard and their fans have really seem to have taken to the game.




#2519703 Will Mantha join GR after the QMJHL playoffs?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 08 May 2014 - 06:20 AM

2 more goals last night although Val d'or drops the game in OT.

 

thats 22 goals in 21 playoff games, think we may have something here

 

Mantha is the only reason I haven't cancelled my cable yet, in case Val D'or wins it and they head to the Memorial Cup.




#2519234 Now some gritty forwards.

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 05 May 2014 - 06:42 AM

I made a list of RHed Dmen we should be taken a long look at and trying to get. So now I will do gritty forwards. None of these guys are goons. They a big guys that can skate, hit, and even score. Guys that play 10+ mins a game, some in the 15mins range. All are under 30, all make less than 4 million per season, and none are going to break the bank to pick up. So here are the guys I would take a long hard look at:

 

RW's:

Brouwer Wash 6-3/215

Setoguchi Win 6-0/200

Jones CGY 6-2/210

Kassian Van 6-3/215

Smith-Pelly Ana 6-0/225

 

LW's:

Martin NYI 6-3/210

Greening Ott 6-3/210

Bollig Chi 6-2/225

Clifford LAK 6-2/215

Kulemin Tor 6-1/225

Maroon Ana 6-3/230

 

C's:

Wingels SJ 6-0/200

Jenner CBL 6-2/205

Hanzel Phx 6-6/240

Smith Ott 6-2/215

Eller Mon 6-2/215

Nolan LAK 6-3/225

 

Setoguchi and Kulemin are UFA's, so we could just sign them. The others need to be traded for. I would LOVE to see us grab 2 guys off of this list, or find 2 guys that play the same type of game as these guys. Guys that skate, hit, play hard every shift and could net 10+ goals. We need the grit and size, as Boston clearly showed us.....

Franzen for Troy Brouwer.  Washington is the perfect fit for Franzen.

f*** the Hqbs. Go Bruins. They were douchey against us, but I'm still pulling for them now that my Wings are toast.

Z grew his playoff beard.  That's preparation baby.


That beard is beyond beastly.
