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.
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.

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.
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.
I think the success of that line has a lot to do with the 3rd-tier match-up. I agree with the whole "if you're going to do the work, you're going to get the ice-time" sentiment, but as good as that 3rd grouping is, Brunner is still a defensive liability and if they weren't going to worry at all about matching up and Chicago got a consistent diet of Toews-Hossa-Sharp against say the Smith pairing with Brunner trying to watch Keith or Hjarm creeping in the slot, things might get hairy very fast.
Of course, none of this matters. Babcock is smarter than all of us. He'll do what he is going to do and I trust him implicitly.
Babcock is just gonna make weird angry faces at Quenville all game and throw him off. He'll be so lost Jamal Mayers will be on with CamelToews and Bickell.
I love me some Wings and I am quite proud of them this year. Especially for not castrating the officials in game 6, which they had all the reason in the world to do. I love how they're always calm, cool and collected. It makes it a little easier for my blood pressure to go down when crap like game 6 happens. Let's hope we see an all ings WCF!
Abby thrown face first into the boards by Seabrook in the 1st while on a PP?
Kindl called for interference and then later in the first a Wing was interfered with even more so with no call?
Consistency is all we ask for.
And where was Brunner's penalty shot this series when he got the corkscrew in the hands on a breakaway, or when Roszival two-handed Abdelkader's stick out of his hands on a breakaway that was pointed out in a .gif in the last GDT? Therefore, Mr. Fraser, the call was flat outf****** wrong and by this series' standards isn't even a penalty.
