In Topic: Tomas Jurco's Ridiculous New Stick Trick

11 July 2014 - 09:48 PM

I'd rather see him working on other things also but given how he's already played for us. I'd guarantee he's been doing just that. I thought these videos were honestly the best we'd see from Jurcos career when drafted but last year was a glimpse that he's willing to do the parts that aren't flashy and go unnoticed to most fans. As a Wings fan I love watching him play.

Just pisses me off even more bout the Cleary signing

In Topic: Dan Boyle not coming back to the Sharks

I'm ok with trying Boyle but only as one year deal and I'm not paying him big money. If he wants money or years let him go somewhere else. I'd rather go after Niskanen and/or Zidlicky

In Topic: Now some gritty forwards.

Number 9, you know I will take back what I said with Mantha and a few prospects the previous years. The size of the prospects do seem a little bit bigger than previous years. I guess I just wish we'd see this philosophy go over into his trading/free agency practices.

Trade for the gritty 3rd liner that will not put up but maybe 20 points in the season but will be huge contributors in the playoffs.(Bickell)

I just want more balance and to be more complete of a team. I do love where young guys are at right now as far as Sheahan, Nyquist, Jurco, etc as well as our Griffins. I just feel as though we are a little bit of time and maybe one big trade or FA signing from being cup contenders again.

Can't rely on FA and no cap these days. Have to build through draft which does make me feel good watching our griffins play.

In Topic: Michigan boys hitting the market 2014-15 season.

Trade Howard for a first next year and a d.(package him if we need)

 

Sign Thomas or Miller and let Mrazek back him up next year getting him some more starts with Detroit.


oh yea, I'd love Krug but doubt he leaves Boston


Another name that can most likely be added to the list is David Booth. It's been heavily speculated that Vancouver will use their final compliance buyout to get out of his $4.25M cap hit.

He's a Michigan native guy that has struggled with injuries, but had a relatively healthy season this year. Before missing most of last season, he was producing at a 20+ goal, 40+ point a season rate. He has good size (6-2, 212) and is good on the forecheck.

One interesting note: His most productive years were with Florida (07/08-10/11, 84 goals and 156pts. in 255 games) spending a lot of time on Stephen Weiss' wing.

If he's bought out, he could likely be had for a year for cheap. Maybe the Wings could give him a shot in hopes that some familiarity could give him and Weiss a boost? If not, he could be easily moved via waivers or let go after his year is up.

I'd be completely fine with it if it was one year deal. Low risk high reward as it can only boost the production of Weiss which is needed badly. If not, let Booth go and be done with the whole project.


In Topic: Florida willing to trade first overall pick.

The first pick is always on the table. It's always open to listen to offers. It's not meaning they're wanting to give the pick away for anything less than a great deal though. Florida will want A LOT for the pick. Same for every sport. As far as the Wings getting the pick, I wouldn't really be open to the package. Not unless it was someone like McDavid
