#2521684 Mantha named CHL player of the year

Posted by Greatness=PavelDatsyuk on 25 May 2014 - 12:12 AM

The kid is such a beast! Despite Kenny's usual protocol regarding prospects, I'm optimistic that we'll see Mantha in a Wings jersey soon. Personally, I'm hoping for next season. But I'll be shocked if Kenny let's him bypass the AHL. My guess is he'll play next season in GR. And if he continues to have success hopefully he'll get to play with the big club the following season.

 

Holland has said will let him bypass the AHL if he can prove he can play as a top-6 forward, so it's all on Mantha at this point. A couple of recent quotes from Holland:

 

“He’s going to get a chance to make our team (in 2014-15). He’ll play five or six or seven exhibition games, and if he belongs in the NHL, we’ll put him in.” — Holland (May 2014, Detroit Free Press)


“We’re going to give him every opportunity to make our team in training camp. He’s big, he can score, he’s got tremendous hands and hockey sense. The question is, can he score at next level? We’re going to give him an opportunity to play with our top six in training camp … If he can help us, we want him on our team. I don’t want him on the team as a 13th, 14th forward or on the fourth line playing eight minutes a night, penalty kill. If he can play in our top six with Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Franzen and Nyquist, and contribute, he can play on our team. If not, we can put him in Grand Rapids, do the thing we’ve done through the years — let him learn to be a pro down there.” — Holland (Sportsnet, May 2014)

Matt does an amazing one for each round, it should be out in a few days so just keep an eye out for it.

f***. White better step it up.

EDIT: Coli or Lashoff are much better options, keep White off the ice.

#2315987 Quincey files for arbitration

Posted by Greatness=PavelDatsyuk on 05 July 2012 - 05:59 PM

Quincey was bad with us, but he's got the potential to be a very good defenseman. Something just wasn't clicking.

Quincey can do everything, hit, shoot, pass, and skate, just a matter of putting it together. I have a good feeling about him this season.

He was getting top-pair minutes in Colorado the last two seasons. I have a feeling he was just having trouble adjusting to the system and we will see a much improved Quincy this year.


#2312923 Jiri Hudler signs with Calgary, 4 years, $4m/year

Posted by Greatness=PavelDatsyuk on 02 July 2012 - 02:40 PM

I would have been more pissed if Holland had done this then the Sammy signing.


#2312158 Now what?

Posted by Greatness=PavelDatsyuk on 01 July 2012 - 10:51 PM

Has to be a trade coming, but hopefully we try and move Franzen before Filppula


#2311905 St. James: Wings have inquired about Rick Nash

Posted by Greatness=PavelDatsyuk on 01 July 2012 - 08:18 PM

Eklund says the wings are putting together a MEGA deal for Nash E4.

Well that just convinced me Detroit pulled out any offer they had for Nash and now have no interest what so ever.


#2311766 Ilitch, Chelios to fly to Suter, Holland to fly to Parise

Posted by Greatness=PavelDatsyuk on 01 July 2012 - 05:41 PM

Not as worried about loosing Parise as I am about Suter, we NEED Suter, getting Parise would be nice, but there are other options available.


#2311758 Ilitch, Chelios to fly to Suter, Holland to fly to Parise

Posted by Greatness=PavelDatsyuk on 01 July 2012 - 05:35 PM

According to Pierre Lebrun the Wings are no longer meeting with Parise face to face, though they are still very interested.

Unless we could get Tampa or some other team to help us out again I don't see this happening. We would have to give up way more then hes worth.


#2294992 Parise, Suter AND Semin

Posted by Greatness=PavelDatsyuk on 21 April 2012 - 02:07 AM

Get rid of Kindl before Ericsson or Quincy, and pass on Semin, especially at that cap hit.

And why the hell would you want to get rid of Helm??? He isn't and probably won't ever be a top 6 forward, but he has amazing speed and is great on the PK, and for s decent cap hit I would bring him back in a heartbeat.

Joey MacDonald suffered back spasms last night and Nyquist is being sent down because Bertuzzi is back.
