Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 26 June 2015 - 06:27 PM

Buffalo just got a lot better.

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

#2615975 Looking ahead to expansion draft ... If Vegas comes to the nhl etc

Posted by F.Michael on 24 June 2015 - 06:20 PM

Expansion is such a silly idea when there's franchises in dire need of re-location.

 

EDIT - and IMHO - forget Vegas...Seattle (Coyotes), and Quebec City (Panthers) should be the 2 top destinations.




#2615969 Looking ahead to expansion draft ... If Vegas comes to the nhl etc

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 24 June 2015 - 05:43 PM

I'd imagine we would definitely go with protecting only Mrazek in goal if they go about the expansion draft in a similar manner. Is it just unprotected main roster players that are up for draft? It would be garbage if they could poach players from junior and GR as well. I'd rather they just get thrown in with the basement dwelling teams for draft lottery day than to get a s*** at poaching other franchise's prospects.


Ya I'm pretty sure ahl players are out of the question


#2615769 Tony Granato and Pat Ferschweiler, assistant coaches

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 June 2015 - 12:24 PM

Why no official title for Chelios, though?  Everyone else had a title listed, but Chelios will just "work with" the defense? Why not just name him a defensive coach?

 

Chelios should be on the bench.  Then we'd have more recognizable people on our bench.  And sirdrake might come back.  




#2615668 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by kliq on 22 June 2015 - 07:20 PM

As far as Arizona goes though, they may be trying to reach the cap floor.




#2615310 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 19 June 2015 - 02:26 PM

I've begun to regret they didnt give him up for tyler myers..
If for no other reason than it would've ended all this phanuef talk before it started.


#2615242 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 19 June 2015 - 09:21 AM

 

We haven't drafted a Datsyuk or Zetterberg type player in 15 years.  Those were diamonds in the rough but that was a while back.  And please don't compare Nyquist or Tatar to them until they become elite, top 10 caliber players.

 

I'm curious who the "bunch of Zetterberg and Datsyuk type players" you refer to are.   

 

I'm not going to compare Nyquist and Tatar to elite players when they were in their prime, but I am going to compare them to when they first got into the league.  Nyquist and Tatar are showing a ton of promise just like Datsyuk and Zetterberg did back in 02, 03 and 04.  I feel like Nyquist is every bit as good as Zetterberg was in his first couple years.  Their numbers are actually pretty similar too.  As for Tatar, he scored more goals in his second full NHL season than he ever has in his career with 29.  The guy is only 24 years old.  He also put up more points than Datsyuk after his first two NHL seasons. I'll be really interested to see what the 23 year old Pulkkinen can do with a full season in the NHL after putting up 34 goals in 46 games in the AHL.  Not to mention we still technically don't know what we have in Mantha yet and Dylan Larkin has been showing tons of promise.  We also just signed Axel Holmstrom, who was Sweden’s junior hockey player of the year.  Maybe none of them will pan out or maybe all of them will, who knows?  But saying we haven't been drafting well over the past 15 seasons isn't true.  If you want to be pessimistic, that's up to you, but there's a ton to be excited about.  We're not going away anytime soon.  :)




#2614715 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Posted by Son of a Wing on 15 June 2015 - 11:40 PM

If Cleary is re-signed he will not cost anyone a roster spot. He will be assigned to the minors and collect his promised pay cheque there and be glorified mentor for the young guys.

It's really a non-issue since we shouldn't even be that close to the cap.


#2614884 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

False. The team in front of him can never get in done in the playoffs. It isn't his job to score goals. 

 

Their problem has always been center depth. Stacked at G. Stacked at D. Nash and company at wing (even though Nash choked).

 

To me Brassard and Stepan are both great 2nd line centers. But they're going to compare to the Datsyuks, Toews, Kopitars, and Stamkos's of this league.
