In Topic: Help on "D" - Kenny should be calling Boston

04 July 2013 - 02:42 AM

We NEED a 1st Line Sniper (Vanek).

We NEED a 2nd Line Banger (Clarkson).

We HAVE 10 NHL capable defensemen (Ericsson, Kronwall, Smith, Quincey, Kindl, DeKeyser, Lsshoff, Almqvist, Sproul, Ouelette).

Why is he still our GM? He is an idiot. Pull your head out, Holland. Its so obvious and so simple.

Vanek and clarkson would add about 12 mil in cap hit....


although a first line sniper would be nice and 2nd line center would cost less and allow Z and D to play on th same line.


AA maybe ready but XO and Sproul havent even played in the AHL

In Topic: Dreger: Filppula looking for $5.5m/season over at least 7 years

Yeah, he's one of the best skaters in the league, let alone on our own team.
How many points does 66 points count for when it's Filppula who scored them? Does Filppula's 23 goals have less game winning ability than Zetterberg's 22 goals that season or Datsyuk's 19? Filppula scored more goals than both of our two best forwards, but no one is saying that Pav and Z aren't good enough goal scorers. I'll hold my breathe for the answers to these questions.


Flip is a good player but just because he scored more goals ONCE doesnt mean they should shell out that kind of money. At this point i think its safe to say he isnt going to get any better, hes probably a 50 point guy at best. the difference is z and dats are consistent flip had alot of good years and 1 great year. dats just signed a deal for 7.5 avg is flip worth 5.5 mil with what we've seen for the entirety of his career so far
