For anyone who questions what Miller contributes to this team, does tonight's PK answer the question?

Yo Bill, that's why Miller is in the lineup.

Love all the shot blocking




#2640083 Larkin for ...

Posted by marcaractac on 29 November 2015 - 03:04 PM

 

Not that it would ever happen, that guy will retire in Chicago but Toews would instantly the best player on the team and improve the changes of winning a cup in the Z, Pasha era tremendously.  If Larkin even turns out to be a Toews lite that would be fantastic. If Crosby and Stamkos keep struggling this year (which I think they won't), he should honestly be in the discussion for the best player in the world. Elite defensively, tremendous leadership, the bigger the game the better he plays...man if Larkin could be something like that in his prime wow. I don't care who is "on pace" for what or how many shots someone has... I'd also be very happy if he turns out to be a very solid top 6 center

 

 

What makes Larkin so exciting is that he seems to be more likely to become that type of player than to not. Even Wings management seems to think Larkin will 'become the Wings Toews'. Bob MacKenzie commented on that on TSN Radio a while back. Throwing around names like Toews and Price when it comes to the potential of Larkin and Mrazek. 

 

I do agree that in miracle land if Toews became a Wing he would instantly be the team's best player. But when it comes to Larkin vs Toews, what about 5 years from now? IMO that's what it comes down to if it came down to choosing between the two. Toews is a no brainer in the short term, of course.

Dumb move. Smith is good. 3-0-1 since he came back. 3-1 before he went out. Should play him.

 

He makes dumb mistakes and doesn't score. Kindl makes dumb mistakes, but scores. Easy decision, really. Face it, Bill. Miller is more important to this team than Smith is.

I'd never make that trade. I'm still very high on Mantha but it's not that I think Mantha should be off limits, just no way I trade him for Byfuglien on an expiring contract. And the only thing that would be worse than making that trade for Byfuglien on an expiring contract would be signing Byfuglien to a 5 X $6M contract. I've said it before but Byfuglien is a pretty good offensive defenseman now, but I see him falling off hard over the next year or two. The guy has never been in great shape, so I can't imagine him changing that a whole lot as he gets into his mid 30's. A similar deal for Trouba though? Hell yes!

 

Byfuglien is gonna end up signing one of those contracts that will look god awful in 2 years time come July 1st. I am curious to see which team gets suckered into it.
