#2616857 2015 Draft

Posted by rick zombo on 27 June 2015 - 12:45 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

If for no other reason than it would've ended all this phanuef talk before it started.
