#2666835 Mantha

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 10 April 2016 - 01:37 PM

Well, I've gotta say I've lost faith in the decision making here. Pp looked good with Mantha and we were winning games, we bench him and now it looks like we'll never win again lol. He could've gotten some valuable playoff experience (with Datsyuk even) but instead we'll have our offensive dynamo Andersson in! Let's just keep bashing our heads against the wall here and expect a different outcome, fun plan.

Edit: also, what's being benched a few games then subsequently demoted right as we make the playoffs supposed to do for his confidence? It honestly seems like all we do lately is break these kids down and build them back up to play average, safe hockey with no creativity.

In that article, it says that the Red Wings told him they will not trade his contract to relieve the cap. Holland, in his obsessive loyalty will eat the $7.5M hit for the year and handicap his team for no reason but to stay loyal. f*** Holland, he needs to be fired!

:lol: I love this whole "so and so can't play defense, so I'm gonna scratch them" Tatar and Nyquist can't win battles to save their lives. We have a coach that doesn't prioritize goal scoring. That's a problem, guess what? Goals win games. For me, I want guys that can score goals. Patrick Kane can't spell "backcheck" and he's a 3 time Stanley Cup champion. Enough of this garbage from management and coaching, play to win thef****** game.

Mrazek will end up again as a starting goalie... game one or game two.

I hope that Kenny will address size and toughness and that Blash will let AA and Mantha play. Under 5 min p/game for AA is not correct/enough.

Trouba will be RFA. I don't see Jets keeping him at $6M-$7M per season. I would offer some package including Nyquist/Tatar, Def prospect: Ouellet/Sproul/Jensen, Smith and our 1st rounder. I would actually make same offer for Shatty. This kind of addition will be huge for us.

Kenny will need to beef up front. Idea of having top 9, all 20 goal potential is not bad but need to add some grit and true hockey players which will create space for our skilled players.

Abdelakader - Z - Larkin
Mantha - Dats - FA (Lucic/Backes)
Svenichkov (SP) / Tatar or Nyquist if not traded - AA - She
Miller - LG - FA (Martin)

DD - Trouba/Shatty
Kronwall - Green
Errorson (unfortunately he will stay) - RHD with some grit and size (Prout/Gudas/McIlarth/McQuaid)
Ouellet - Marchenko

Whatever happens in the offseason, jurco and smith need to be traded for the sake of their careers. It's doing no good for the wings or themselves

BTW, I'm still waiting for Abdelkader to score 3 goals over his last 12 games to hit 20 and show all us doubters that he's worth that shiny new contract.  14 goals and 36 points in 78 games since his hot start.  Totally worth $30 mil over 7 years.  Can't wait for his decline in 2 or 3 years where they're paying over $4 mil a season for 20 points.

Abby is like the only guy close to his career projections. The fact that he's close to his career high while the entire team struggles so much offensively is one of the only positives of a piss poor year all around. Not to mention he's also our most physical presence easily and protects Larkin like its his job. I can't understand how people can not love Abby he's a beauty

#2664558 HNIC Rumor: Datsyuk to return to Russia

Posted by VM1138 on 05 April 2016 - 01:41 PM

I think something was lost in translation. I'm betting Datsyuk is talking about what he will do after his final year is out.

Got that right.  Until he proves he can play well for an entire season and the playoffs, you need a solid backup.  Unless they can replace Howard with one, you keep him.  Right now Mrazek isn't going to get big money, so you can afford Howard.

Howard isn't any better than your average backup. He just costs way more. He needs to be moved.

Good to see Sheahan actually going to the net and using his size for a change.
