#2418347 What would you give up for Malkin?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 07 June 2013 - 12:15 PM

The ticket this morning has been talking about a tweet Dreger sent out basically saying that if PIT goes out in the next couple games that they may put Malkin on the trade block. 26 years old, next year is final year on contract.

 

Theyre saying it would probably cost you 2-1st round picks, and a young forward and d-man (probably Nyquist and Smith realistically)

 

Would you do it?

 

At this point I think we could stand to part with Smith, especially if we add another top 2 dman through free agency not to mention our youth depth at D. Nyquist may be another story, but I think we could ultimately recover from that. The 2 - 1st rounders I think we could also do without regreting considering we could have Malkin for potentially 10 years if hes happy here.

 Or he could be here for next season, bail out for the biggest contract he could get and we're without Nyquist, Smith and 2 1st rounders for a Hossa like rental.

I agree 100%.

And for u Howard haters I also wouldn't be surprised if he signed another contract when this is up. He may very well be a wing for life.

I'd love for Howard to be a Wing for life.  He can split time with Mrazek or Patterson in a couple years and we'll always have a great goalie tandem.  Having Mrazek and Patterson will just keep Howard sharp and on his game.

Those are terribad. Screams "AHL". 

 Screams Ducks farm team, so yeah, AHL.  I've seen an italic D like that before somewhere.

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 06 June 2013 - 07:53 AM

That trade not looking so hot now, eh Jarome? 

Oh geez, you mean he could have been a Bruin?  Instead all his tweets end with #Crosbysballsonmychiginla 



 

It's not Iginla's fault that he shouldn't be used on any other line than with Cindy, since he can't do anything without being set up anymore....

 

Not since he joined the  Pens and changed from black stick tape to white.  You don't just switch stick tape colours and expect to be the same player.  My Iginla Flames shirt is going to the salvation army.  He is no longer human the moment he put on that jersey.




#2418103 Blessing in disguise?

I like everything but including Jurco in a package deal.  He needs to hang out with Dats all summer and work on ice together.  He's gonna be an impact player, he just needs Dats to mentor him.

#2417597 Draft position?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 04 June 2013 - 12:52 PM

if there's a big skilled forward to pick at #18, there has to be something wrong with the player. shouldn't last that long

Not in a draft this deep.  That's why a bunch of guys on here are ok for a change with trading our 1st for 2nd rounders.  Max Domi is set to go like 25th or something like that and he's damn good.  Small, but good. 



McCarron just had a great tournament, and is developing nicely. He is more of a project type that has a high ceiling. He would be a nice pick at the end of the 1st through the 2nd. I wouldn't take him at 18, but if we traded down and got a late 1st and an extra 2nd he would make a nice combo with Fashing, and a skill guy like Lehkonnen since last I heard he is falling.

At 159 pounds he's more getting knocked down rather than falling.  He'd be fine in the 3rd/4th round, but for 1-3 we need big nasty bastards.  6'3 or bigger.  Mantha would be nice in the 1st round, McCarron in the 2nd if he's around and the biggest dude left in the draft in the 3rd please.  Time to be as big as the Kings and Bruins and punish other teams as opposed to being the one out there getting pulverised constantly.

#2417226 The CapGeek Thread

I am not so sure that Q will be let go after next season.  I guess it all depends on Cola and how he plays and stays healthy.  I am not so sure that both Q and Cola walk, that leaves two spots to fill.  I am all for not having Q on this team, but I am also not so sure that with all the rookies this past season on D, that Holland will feel comfortable in another year having two more unproven rookies on D again.  I think if Q does not get traded that, unless Holland has another player on his mind, he re-signs here again and Cola leaves...

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

Dekeyser - Quincey

Smith - Kindl

Lashoff (with appearances by Sproul)

 

That will be your 7 defenders the year after next.  Of course, barring trade's.  I said in another thread that Q would be the most likely traded from the D, but if not him, then Kindl...but I really think Holland is happy with his D and probably won't touch it unless its a deal he cannot refuse...

When we have the likes of Sproul, Ouellet, Backman, Jensen, Nicastro, Almqvist, McKee and such coming up through the ranks, we don't need to keep signing ok Dmen for a couple years to bridge gaps.  We need to give the spot on the team to the best player that we have.  After next year, the best Dmen we have will likely be the first 3 on that list that will be fighting for 1 or 2 spots on the Wings.  So as much as I like Smith, he better prove his worth this year coming up and Lashoff should show he's a shutdown guy, or they can be packaged for a forward and Sproul, Ouellet and Backman can take the reigns.

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 02 June 2013 - 09:05 PM

Pens cause of iginla 

When Iginla stopped a pending trade with Boston and Calgary got dirt for him in a trade, Iginla can choke on a turd.  

 

Go Bruins!  

 

I've been wearing my Lucic shirt about the city snarling at Penguins fans.

maybe trade quincey for picks and pick up leopold, murray, or streit 

 

cant beat those 4 lines. id love to get rid of gustavsson too and bring up mrazek

I didn't even read this before I posted mine, but we signed the same 2 guys and we both let Flip walk.  I would keep Q though and let him go after next season, same goes for Gustavsson.  Then I'd take another look at Mrazek to see if he's a capable back up for Howard and I'd fast track Sproul and maybe get Backman up with him in 2014 depending on how our D is performing.  Ouellet will likely be more on the fast track as well.

If only Cleary had the skill to match his heart, cause at least he'sf****** got one.  He's been our best player tonight, and I don't like the guy so that's as unbiased as it gets.

Ha ha ha.

I was waiting for you to laugh at that.  Kronwall makes a "rookie" line change in game 7 and has been no better than Smith in the playoffs, but no one has been ragging on him at all.  He's a vet with an A on his chest.  He should lead the charge on the blue line.  If he's leading by example, Smith has been following 100%, but getting more points.
