#2196522 Stamkos Re-Signs With Lightning

Posted by 13dangledangle on 05 July 2011 - 02:31 PM

I just honestly cannot get my brain around he's not signed yet. I just can't imagine Stamkos not re-signing there, either he's been on vacation for a week or there's blood in the water in Tampa...

I hope we ink Conks back again for a coulpe. As far as any other additions I'm going to sit tight and see how the Hudler situation goes. Our D core really impress me as a group and I think they'll be great imo, so I think we are pretty D heavy when you look at GR as well. I'll look for a Huds/GRDman and a 3rd combo before to long.

I used to love Arnott, but that was 1995. I dont love him so much now, respect yes but for the Wings Id have to pass for younger talent.

#2196003 Zherdev and Emery?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 03 July 2011 - 10:57 PM

I dont know Zherdev all that well but from what Ive heard it's not good...However with the candor of the Red Wings could this alter his attitude? Or could the Dazzeling Datsyukian dekes humble him just enough to give us a chance to mold him some? I think so imo, and I love Emery as well, he plays with raw emotion and plays really well (most of the time).....he could also be our enforcer. I love fighting goalies!

#2195998 Brett Lebda traded to Nashville

Posted by 13dangledangle on 03 July 2011 - 10:42 PM

That's a very, very good trade for Toronto (for once). Especially if Lombardi's healthy next season.

They basically dump Lebda and get a huge upgrade in Franson.

Nashville simply got robbed here. Were they too cheap to pay Lombardi on IR or what? And in return, the Preds got Slaney, who looks like he might be a career minor-leaguer.

Doesn't make any sense. If good trade are this easy, Kenny should give Poile a call.

A Howard/Rinne Tandem for Hudler and a 4rth looks great to me;)

#2195991 Forward lines next season?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 03 July 2011 - 10:34 PM

I totally agree with these lines, but i also see homer and cleary swapping spots from time to time depending on the matchup with opposition. but ya, agree with the abs, helm positions. i see babs playing that 4th line A LOT. These are very balanced and i would be confident playing all of them anytime. I just wish kenny could get one of yandle or bogo, cause that would make our team scary good.

Damn right it would!

#2195976 Forward lines next season?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 03 July 2011 - 10:12 PM

id try something like this

Filppula - Datsyuk -Holmstrom

Hudler- Zetterberg - Franzen

Cleary - Helm - Bertuzzi

Eaves - Abs - Mursak

Filppula - Datsyuk -Holmstrom

Hudler- Zetterberg - Franzen

Cleary - Abs - Bertuzzi

Eaves - Helm-Mursak

I love the combos. I just think that Abby would do great with Clears and Bert, they are all cut from the same cloth so to speak. That leaves Helm on four, which is almost my favorite line on the team. The "Wheels" line as I will call it of Eaves, Helm and Mursak. These guys will leave almost any line one thru four spinning round watching them fly away. I am really digging this team right now, and I have a feeling it's a best for last sort of thing...we shall see.

I would really like this! Get r done Kenny ;)

#2195144 Yandle on the block?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 02 July 2011 - 11:38 AM

Dude, come on, Abdelkader has garbage value for a player like Yandle. All you're doing is offereing a bunch of scraps for one of the best offensive d-men in the game that is only 24 years old. Please think about that before you offer such a deal. Would you trade, say, Kronwall for Cody McLeod and a pick?

The Yotes might remember Abby differently he scored a sick goal against them! I do really love Yandle and that would be awesome. Not likely but thats alright.

#2195102 Forward lines next season?

Posted by 13dangledangle on 02 July 2011 - 10:32 AM

Holland did not say he's done with the forwards, he said he's looking at defense and not so much at forwards. Thus getting another D man is job one. I think if they were offering Jagr 2.5 then it will go to another forward spot, I also think we will sign someone for this spot late into the summer.

#2194797 Simon Gagné

Posted by 13dangledangle on 01 July 2011 - 09:00 PM

I was hoping for some more scoring up front so this would do it but I don't like the price but on a 1 year whatever. We certainly need more fire power with Commy & Big Rig back there!

i think we need to sign SOMEONE like gagne just to save face, really...and i'd really applaud that move.

How about a combo or two?

Good decision for sure. Much respect for him, good luck Paul.

#2191036 Our Free Agents not locked up yet -

I agreed with Eaves then Ericsson. I like Eaves a lot and think that when he gets hot he could be utilized in the top 6 and PP. On the other hand If he walks for a better role/pay check then all the best. With Mursak and Emmerton coming up our bottom 6 is loaded. I wish we could get another sniper, I miss the line combos of the Hossa days.
