#2617078 #19 OA Evgeny Svechnikov

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 28 June 2015 - 01:33 AM

Any red wing winning the Calder next year would be a stretch with mcdavid and Eichel coming up. Maybe we should hold them back one more year so they can go for the award in 2017 :lol:

all it would take is outscoring them, so no.
I want them to win out because they scored more then Mcdavid and eichel.
It would tickle my jimmies pink.

PINK!

 
I really do think Larkin just might make the team. If not at the start, definitely before the season is out. Sadly as far as the Calder goes, he'd have to noticeably set himself apart from McDavid and Eichel, as you know those who vote will be itching to give it to either of those two. But I'd rather see Larkin contribute come playoff time than to see him win the Calder. Something that either of the other two won't even have a shot of doing this season.  

If blashill is as high on Larkin as it seems like he is, I could see him winning a job out of camp.
He was scoring a ppg during the playoffs in grand rapids, while playing great defensive hockey.
He's got a good chance, especially if helm stays on the wing, and if Franzen can't return.


#2617092 Pronger (contract) and Grossman to for Sam Gagner and conditional pick

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 28 June 2015 - 10:56 AM

So Pronger is an employee of the NHL front office while also being employed as an NHL player under contract (who just got traded) while also becoming eligible for the HHOF because of the new bylaws?  That's some impressive Pronger physics. 

 

I wonder if the Coyotes will retire his jersey?  He's the best d-man they've ever had. 




#2617091 Free agents this off season

Posted by Shinzaki on 28 June 2015 - 10:53 AM

We signed KQ last year on FA day...even on one ankle he was very effective last year.  He's not very flashy, doesn't try to lay the big hits that draw penalties and suspensions, but he uses his body and leverage around the cage better than anyone else we have

I've always liked Helm on the wing, I think his speed makes him much more dangerous offensively on the boards than it does down the middle. For the same reason, I think Athanasiou would be much more effective as a winger at the NHL level. Both players are huge assets because of their speed and versatility. I don't think Helm should be going anywhere.

I doubt it will take Svechnikov 4 years to crack the Red Wings lineup, but I don't think it will be a year either. My guess would be 2-3 years. He's not eligible to play in the AHL next season, so he will be sent back to the Q for another year. I would guess he will play at least one season in Grand Rapids the following year, then possibly make the Red Wings in the 2017-18 season.

I think the '17-18 season is going to be a good one. New Arena for all these stud kids we're going to have coming up over the next few seasons...

lol waste of a pick .. besides the russian kid this draft for me anyways has been a waste

Wait until the Wings trade one of these picks for a veteran at the deadline. You'll care then.

So I must really be missing something. Svechnikov is an awesome pick at 19th overall. Big. Raw. Fast. Elite skill. And a great demeanour (watch some interviews). There should be way more partying going on here.

I drank too much.
At least I must have, because frank seems to be really reasonable today.
But I'm happy with him, I don't know what to expect from him though.
1st line winger?
Second liner?
What do you think?

Yeah their economy is bad but the khl is still owned by some otherworldly rich oil guys and they'll pay a premium for their local players. Wouldn't shock me at all if we'll never see Provornov coming over.

Trading your best defender going forward and then the heart and soul of your franchise is just wow..Boston fans are furious as they should be. Neely should be focusing on the business side I mean he is not the GM nor a scout

Lol at the Leafs passing on Hanifin Reilly, Hanifin would have been a scary top pairing now they have an undersized center and no too pairing of they decide to try trade Phaneuf

Ha.
The leafs said something about not having enough skill, and mariner has it in spades as long as his body holds up.
And I'm kinda glad he fell to the canes, faulk-hanifin could be amazing together too, plus if he hits his ceiling, we won't have to play him too often.


And reading boston fans tweets/hfboards posts is bringing me such joy, there's already a hash tag to fire Sweeney...
If they went this far, why not keep trading older guys. They can't be done, they have three goalies, So I'm excited to see if they continue their downfall tomorrow.

As for D, go with what we have, see what options there are for a legit top 4 at the deadline. 

 

 

 

Drafting russians has worked out very well for Tampa. Not many teams take risks on Russians anymore. Could be a steal for us. 

True. The only way teams feel comfortable is if they are already here playing.




#2616790 2015 Draft

Posted by rick zombo on 26 June 2015 - 08:27 PM

I just knew it when they weren't trading back we were gonna take him ... Since we didn't take a dman like we should of and now were f***ed till 73 I'm predicting we're getting rid of mantha now

Our forward prospects are a+ while our d's suck

 

Calm down  :lol:

 

I like to look at the first half of this last sentence and feel grateful. Our forward prospects are a+. Is that not awesome?

 

Depending on who you listen to, Holland can be criticized for lots things but drafting isn't one of them. The Wings always take the best player available and they won't change this strategy anytime soon.

I'm guessing boston will offer picks 13,14,15 and Subban for the 3rd overall pick? Don't know if arizona can say no to that


Future franchise goaltender ... Possibly a good dman + the Russian kid and another good forward

 

Exactly what has Subban done for someone to say he's a future franchise goaltender. When he played for Belleville I watched him play and he really isn't that good. Put it this way, if he is a #1 goalie for your team you are in trouble.

I'm just flabbergasted by the buffoonery on this one.  One team initiates three different trades and ends up with NONE of the best players when all is said and done. 

 

Whenever people complain about Ken Holland they should revisit every single Boston Bruins roster move that resulted from their decision to trade Phil Kessel.  Without a doubt the dumbest roster management I've seen in a very long time.

I'm surprised there aren't more people crying,"Why didn't Ken Holland make the trade for Hamilton?!" Or "We could have offered more!!"
As if the Bruins would have any interest in sending one of their guys to a division rival.

Correction, to a division rival for a worse 1st rounder than they got from Calgary.

Boston is on the verge of some tough times. I don't understand what they are doing at all. I get that they have to shed salary, but why Hamilton? I mean, good for us that Boston becomes a weaker team. But I guess firing their previous GM did nothing to change trading away their youth.


It's just ridiculous , Couldnt they of just made a qualifying offer and try to resign him longterm during the season ?

Seidenberg,smith,Marchand,lucic are all guys they could of gotten rid of instead


There f***ed in a few years
