throw an offer sheet at the Sens Karlsson? this kid is the real deal and could be Nic's heir apparent,how many 1st rounders would it cost us? all this talk of Suter and Parise, Kennys or the Wings policy is not to do this but we may have to do something like this to get a top D into the org. Maybe the 2 Minny boys wanna play for there home state now and not entertain the other offers they'll get. Which will leave us waiting another year and try for Weber or act outta the ball park.
question, would you have Sam Gagner over Hudler? Gagner is a R/H shot and has posted 40+ pts the past 5 years. his ppg is higher than Huds and he is 5 years younger. The current contracts are similar, both may seek a rise?
getting help for Pav if Parise doesn't come. Get him some help from home,Nikolai Kulemin a good 2 way guy with some size and how about a cheeky offer for Alexander Radulov? The guy is a great player, but could he curb his antics off the ice? Maybe Pav could curtail this in him. failing that one of the unhearlded players at the WC is Swiss league top scorer Damien Brunner who is leading the Swiss in scoring at the WC and is also a R/H shot. the sp on him is; A slick offensive forward who can shoot as well as pass the puck. Has great wheels and hands. Plays a gritty game.
anyway Babs is over there watching GROUP HELSINKI so im sure he's scouting as well as watching the canadiens.
I am not sure where the misunderstanding came from, but Ryan Suter is from Madison, Wisconsin. He played two years in Ann Arbor, MI. for the US National Development Under 18 team and one yr for the Badgers before reporting to Nashville. He has never played youth hockey in Minnesota. And considering his time in Ann Arbor, and the lack of NHL in Wisconsin, signing in Detroit would be more of a homecoming than Minnesota.
Edit: Wow, negged? So, ok, Minnesota will be a homecoming then, even though he has never played there or lived there...I plan on having a homecoming in Hawaii next week. Jack ass...
