In Topic: Dan Cleary re-signing still possible?

24 August 2015 - 08:32 PM

I think he'd be a good fit with the Griffins really. Have him room with Mantha, maybe his work ethic will rub off on him. I would also enjoy the meltdown on here if Holland were to sign him again.

I don't know what was going on, but mCann and iglesias were about to throw punches at eachother.
losing does not make for a good atmosphere,


At least it shows that they care. Stuff like that happens. Just unfortunate they did it with cameras watching.

In Topic: Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Doubt it. Rogers has all the money in the world but doesn't believe in 5+ year contracts for Baseball players, which is why they never sign top FA talent. Would be nice if the new president can convince them to change that but it's been that way as long as Beeston has been in charge (10+ years).

 

That 5+ year contract thing is a rule Beeston put in place, who is done at the end of the season. Hence why Dombrowski is heavily rumoured to be taking that job. 

 

While I not expect Price to stick around (though I hope he does), making the playoffs and making a run of it would make the team more attractive to free agents compared to years past regardless. 


In Topic: Which prospect will have the best nhl career

04 August 2015 - 12:23 PM

I'd venture to guess that most of the folks reflexively choosing Larkin this year, are the same folks who would have reflexively chosen Mantha last year. 

 

A better question would be, "which non first rounder will have the best NHL career?".  I think it requires a little more critical thinking. 

 

The difference between Mantha and Larkin is that Larkin has already shown he can play with men. The jury is still out on Mantha. Is it a small sample size? Sure. But in that very short span, he has shown a lot more than Mantha has over a much longer stretch.

In the end, this team will never win with Howard as the starter. The sooner Mrazek becomes the undisputed #1, the better off we all are. Howard gave us stability in goal during the rebuild. I am thankful for that. He is good enough to rack up some great regular season numbers, but his weaknesses become amplified in the playoffs.
