In Topic: Steve Ott signs 1 year, $800k deal with Detroit

Not really a bait when it's a pretty common opinion to have.

 

A common opinion that literally know shares with you in here so far and I guarantee the majority of hockey fans do not share either.  Do you need a schooling on what "common" means?

But...but...but... I thought only the "all-stars" were responsible for winning?

 

I sense that shocky will never truly understand just how wrong he is on this subject.

Don't mention that piece of s***'s name again. 

Yeah, you can GTFO for this comment alone.  Blasphemy.


Oh, and Darren McCarty?

Vanek's production dipped with the Wild... you know who else saw their production go down and stay relatively down on the Wild?  Parise.  I would wager there is a correlation here.  I have a feeling his numbers will bounce back with us, assuming we don't misuse him.

His grit means nothing, tbh. We're the only hockey franchise that can win 4 titles in a decade being last in the league in fights and PM's and still think tough guys have any place in the NHL. 

Some might say that Dallas Drake was a part of why we won our last cup... Not saying that Ott is comparable to Dallas Drake, but your comment about grit meaning nothing holds no water.  Grit does not go hand in hand with fights and PM's.


Worthless and it's only gonna take away Mantha/Pulk

 

Okay, first of all, Pulk had had ample opportunity to show he can bring it in the NHL and has yet to really earn it.  20 points in 70 games.  That doesn't bode well for a sniper.  Secondly, Mantha would be wasted on the 4th line.  He'd be better of playing top line minutes in Grand Rapids.  I would love to have Mantha stay up with the big club this season, but one more year in the AHL may actually benefit him over playing 10 or less minutes a game on a shut-down line.
