In Topic: Possible Leak of Florida Panthers New Logo

The old logo is cheesy but this is bland and uninspired. I'll take cheesy over boring all day. I agree with others it looks like a soccer or car logo.

We already needed :
Top 6 Forward
Top 2 Def

Now with Dats leaving, going after Stamkos will be critical.

Top 6 forward, with some size and grit: Backes, Okposo, Lucic and Ladd are options (even if I don't like Ladd). Please don't mention Hudler as someone did... KH just realized that we need to get bigger and grittier. Hudler makes no sense as we are already small.

:lol: I only mentioned Hudler cause that'd be a classic Holland move. Obviously I'd rather see Backes or Okposo.


In Topic: Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

30 April 2016 - 04:12 PM

Radulov would not score less than 40 points in the NHL in a full season. That just won't happen even in our anemic offense. The guy is a two-way (this I'm not sure about but he did gather Selke votes in the NHL) stud who dominates his league and in international competition. When the NHL stars went over there during the lockout his production was right below Malkin and above guys like Datsyuk.  It's not unreasonable to think he'd be a top 12-15 winger in the NHL near the level of someone like Panarin or Kucharov. Most russian fans put him above those guys anyway. I don't think he'd produce as well as Panarin beause not every team has a Kane to play with. The issue isn't this guys talent.. it's that he's a grade A ******. Typically that isn't our style.

50-58 points on a team like ours. 60-70 points on a top 10 team. And in today's unfortunate NHL that's big time first line status.

Kip's scenario is pretty much the dream (maybe the ultimate dream would include Stamkos). I think we all know how it's more likely to end up..

Larkin-Z-Abby
Tatar-Sheahan-Hudler (he's a UFA right?)
AA-E.Staal(our traditional past his prime allstar signing)-Jurco
Miller-Glen-Helm
Pulk

E-Kronwall
Green-DD
one of our Griffins that ran out of options-March
Smith

:bye:

I took Quincey out as I'm not cynical enough to believe Holland would keep the same D lineup and completely let our guys out of options out the door. I'd imagine the capspace would be needed as well.

I can't really decide who to root for but it'll be some great hockey played. I'm just glad the Kings, Ducks, and Hawks are out.
