Let me get this straight. People are crediting The Streak as reason for Stamkos to sign with Detroit? But I thought The Streak didn't matter and was a stupid bulls*** excuse for Ken Holland to field a mediocre team.
I have a feeling Detroit will have a deal in place for Datsyuk's contract with a team dependent on getting a big fish free agent to sign with Detroit. So I don't see it being traded till July 1st or after. Holland knows if he trades away good pieces and then strikes out in free agency he will be looking for another job.
LOL not a chance
Holland might as well own the team. He's never getting fired.
Not one bit of intelligence in this post. You failed to provide proof showing Vasilevsky is "just as good" as Bishop. You failed to show Larkin's statistics as an NHL centerman (since you claim he's a top 6 center). Pulling strawman arguments. Comparing centers to defenseman. So if you're just going to keep talking nonesense without any factual evidence then keep going it's fairly obvious you're clueless on quite a few matters here. And no one here has said defense isn't an issue but you're the one bringing up "there's more to hockey than scoring goals" when clearly one of our big issues is scoring goals.
Anyways can't debate with someone who doesn't know how to debate.
You're "debating" with a fella who thinks every prospect and young player drafted is going to be elite and better than current all-stars.
That doesn't amount to anything. Edmonton says hi.
Also, not to be rude but you explained our prospects in your opinion, not actual facts or projections. We have no idea where these players development will be in a couple years.
Thank you sir!
First, you're trying to move the goalposts. I said Toronto has a brighter potential because of high draft picks vs. Detroit's current prospects. Were Stamkos to base his opinion on potential, he and most everyone outside of Detroit would see Toronto as a better prospect.
Second, the Blackhawks and Penguins say "hi" to your Edmonton cliche.
Third, which of these opinions (your word) aren't true?
-Larkin did fade as the season progressed
-Mrazek has been inconsistent but brilliant at times
-Mantha's stock has dropped since he started playing in the AHL
-Sproul and Oullette are predicted to be middle pairing guys
-Nyquist and Tatar are small and soft. Boston in the playoffs says hi.
-AA has been called Helm with hands by many posters here
Finally, it seems you don't like facts when they contradict your opinions. Not to be rude.
