Canada not dominating like they should be, give Slovakia lots of credit

 

But man Hicketts looks great, looks like a young Smith, pinches just as much that's for sure


In Topic: Pens aquire David Perron from Oilers

03 January 2015 - 11:46 PM

Perron is not what this team needs... Actually neither is any forward unless he's big and has scoring ability like Nash or Pacioretty

Guys come on we have unbelievable forward depth, Weiss is on the fourth line.. (not sure I agree with this, Weiss has as many points as Jurco in 20 less games played, liked Helm and Weiss together)

 

PMD is a much bigger need, most teams do the 3 and 3 for offensive and defensive defensemen, really glad the two we have so far can play D (Danny and Kronwall), we just need one more who can really put up the points. What would it take for Dale Tallon to give up Ekblad? (probably drugs and alcohol) On a more serious note, I never hated the Tyler Myers or Keith Yandle idea, or if we're going cheaper then maybe someone like Larsson, Zidlicky or Sekera. No to Petry, think KFQ in 2012-13 but with a slight edge as a RH

 

Speaking of PMD, our lame excuse for a PMD Kindl's back from injury his stock is probably at its peak, trade him for parts, addition by subtraction because he'll be off our powerplay unit and we can keep Dekeyser on it or put Smith on

Is it any better than the Wings/Leafs?

 

Gotta be honest - last season was brutal, and probably why HBO pulled the series.

 

Little better, they've really upped the censorship the past couple of years, doesn't feel as genuine as the first two, and I guess there isn't the 'shock factor' anymore.


In Topic: Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Haha.  You're right.  Didn't know people in Australia knew Bieber as well.  


 

I hope Kenny doesn't feel that way.  We just need a GM who can actually make good moves.  

 

Really easy to say that two years forward but I remember when we signed him everyone was freaking out. Made a lot of sense at the time, even the most pessimistic people couldn't have called the situation...

 

If anything it's a sign that Holland should not sign a free agent center or trade for one. Babcock likes all of his centremen homegrown (Datsyuk Zetterberg Helm Filppula Glendening Sheahan... all came from within the organization) and clearly favours them. It's not just Weiss that got screwed over, you're forgetting that Legwand came in on pace for almost 60 points and finished the season on the fourth line. He was a pretty big part of our playoff push when all of our other centers were injured (yeah yeah kid line I get it they were more important, Nyquist lit it up but also because he played with Legwand). It's probably because Babcock's system has a heavy emphasis on the center and it isn't for everyone. Tough to argue against the results but it's too bad there's so much money being wasted. Glad we have an organization that can afford these kinds of things.
