Saying that Larkin will be a wing is just as silly as saying Pulkkinen will be a center. He won't.

 

I figured the  :lol: would get the fact that I was only kidding across. I was wrong.

AA is a center, so is Larkin. They are the two best center prospects we have. And center depth is the most important thing in hockey. Why would AA be a wing for Larkin?

 

Lets not judge our next coaches decisions before he is even our coach  :lol:




#2609520 Players who might be available due to teams cap issues

Posted by marcaractac on 21 May 2015 - 05:11 PM

If we have kids who break out and all score around 70 points, more than just you are going to be happy.
Ha.

 

No doubt!

Who would you rather keep, stamkos, or their triplets line?

 

I will be one happy camper if our kids break out like that next years playoffs. 




#2609515 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Posted by marcaractac on 21 May 2015 - 05:05 PM

Michael GrangeVerified account ‏@michaelgrange

Babcock says he doesn't have an out; says Leafs initially offered hm 10 yrs. He asked for 8, takes him thru age 60.

 

Ok Kip, you're happy he's gone and you think, just like Buffalo, that he's liar and really only in it for the money...

I think we got it.

 

...and yes, HSJ really has her work cut out for her now that she can't worship at the altar of Babcock, but do you really think ANY Detroit media is gonna go at him about not re-signing with the Wings?

 

None of them will, because loyalty or not, anyone would be stupid to turn down 50 million in favor of 20.

 

I 100% believe Babs when he said his decision wouldn't be about the money. But when a price like that gets thrown at you, you pretty much have to say yes. Even then he was mulling over it for a few days. His heart was absolutely here, but in the end nobody can really blame him. I'd shovel s*** for the rest of my working life for 50 million dollars.

I don't see it being easy, where are you thinking?

 

There is always somebody. Look at the last 10 years and all those "unmovable" contracts. Every single one that a GM tried to move, always moved. Contracts far worst than that of Weiss.

I doubt he can fetch a lot ... A 2nd + a mid level if were really lucky? He's mostly a bottom 6 guy who can fill In and play top 6 ... And he's a playoff guy who we can never have enough of

In my eyes when zetts 40 and gone (unless he pulls a jagr and keeps performing well enough to play on and on ) helm and abdelkader will be the team leaders to help carry the next wave of wings stars

I just wanna see him develop into a 60-80 pt guy and just don't want us to get all excited and rush him in and go against our ways ... Thinking 1 year ahl is good enough for him to learn .... We'll see what he does in the playoffs


Larkin mantha athanasiou line would be sick

 

We don't rush kids we need to develop, but this is a young, high end talent who already has shown he can compete with the best. Might be nice to finally have a kid that starts dominating at the NHL level by 21 instead of just trying to break into the NHL at 21.

I say helm because his contract is up after next year, and he's going to get a nice pay day.
Plus as of right now he's the closest to Larkin I can think of....
If Larkin could come in and put up the same amount of points in his rookie season, I'd be happy.

 

My heart will literally break if we trade Helm :(

Wait ... Does this mean he's gonna be a redwing next October? As much as I can't wait to see him play with detroit I think it might be best for him to spend at least one year in the ahl

 

Basically he will at least be in the AHL come fall. Hoping he makes the Wings roster though. He showed he can play important minutes against high end talent already. Would love to see him get a shot centering the third line.

I'm so excited for this. I have a feeling he will play his way onto the Wings roster before the season is over. Kid is the real deal.

#2609349 ECF : Tampa Bay Former Rangers vs. New York New Rangers

Hey!  We only have three! ...and Buffalo is practically in Canada.  ;)

 

No worries, Jersey is the one I think should not exist lol. 




#2609318 ECF : Tampa Bay Former Rangers vs. New York New Rangers

Posted by marcaractac on 21 May 2015 - 09:47 AM

Really don't want to see Tampa in the Finals.  The only good thing would be to see Yzerman succeed, but that would make me dislike Holland even more.  

 

But the NHL would be much better off if NYR made the Finals.  Better for ratings.  

 

I want an Anaheim/Tampa finals specifically for a ratings disaster. When a league is wanting to expand when it has teams that many already don't care for, they need a ratings nightmare for the finals to open their eyes. Cali does not need 3 teams. Florida does not need 2 teams. New York does not need 183 teams.
