#2519212 Now some gritty forwards.

Posted by BamaWing on 04 May 2014 - 10:44 PM

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.


#2317949 Doan staying in PHX 4 yrs $21.2 mill

Posted by BamaWing on 10 July 2012 - 09:46 PM

Semin and Doan both bring stuff that we need. Arguing about which one we neednmore is meaningless. I'll take both, trade for dman and call it a day.


#2315922 Semin

Posted by BamaWing on 05 July 2012 - 04:36 PM

Im perfectly fine with 4it years and i've been wanting to sign him for awhile now. He has 40 goal scorer ability easily with Datsyuk being his center. At this point we have to have a signing like Semin.

Best case scenario to me is sign Doan and Semin then trade for Yandle.


#2313520 Opinions if Wings have to settle for 'Plan B': Semin and Carle

Posted by BamaWing on 03 July 2012 - 11:14 AM

Well yes I'd be "ok" with those 2.

I'd just also prefer to sign a 4th line center or maybe trade one. We have a logjam at forward.


#2311561 Paul Gaustad re-signs with Predators

Posted by BamaWing on 30 June 2012 - 10:52 PM

I don't think its overpayment at all. He was making $2.3 mil. The Preds used a first round pick to get him, he did well, was a part of their win over us in the playoffs, he's going to get a raise, $3 mil sounds about right. You could make the argument he wasn't worth $2.3 mil before, but after what he did for them and what they traded to get him, they have to give him a raise.

Understandable about the raise and I don't think he's worth 2.3. With that said he was very important in our series. I'm just more surprised he was resigned before free agency.


#2311510 Paul Gaustad re-signs with Predators

Posted by BamaWing on 30 June 2012 - 07:41 PM

And yes would've liked to have had Gaustad but not for 3 mill. Unless cap goes up to 80 mill he's not worth it.


#2310363 Shane Doan to test free agency

Posted by BamaWing on 27 June 2012 - 09:48 AM

Doan would be perfect for this team and is exactly the type of player we need


#2308134 2012 General Offseason Signing Thread

Posted by BamaWing on 19 June 2012 - 08:03 PM

I'd settle for Semin instead of Parise IF that meant we signed some players like Prust/Gaustad/Prust


#2306170 Message to Ken Holland...

Posted by BamaWing on 09 June 2012 - 08:20 AM

Weber isn't worth it this offseason


#2305049 Would you make this trade?

Posted by BamaWing on 03 June 2012 - 08:43 PM

not dealing Helm


#2297611 What's Kenny Holland's Offseason Plan?

Posted by BamaWing on 27 April 2012 - 02:19 PM

Ill be disappointed if Homer is back to be honest. Id rather take the younger guy with more grit and speed then just have a very slow 4th line pp specialist.


#2251946 How open would you be to trading Hank?

Posted by BamaWing on 04 February 2012 - 12:05 AM

Chrisdetroit check your reading comprehension. Not once have I said I was wanting to trade him. I was talking to some friends and they asked me what it would take to trade him. I didn't have an answer but started wondering.

Simple as that but geez at this thread


#2251910 How open would you be to trading Hank?

Posted by BamaWing on 03 February 2012 - 06:33 PM

Im very surprised at how offensive some of you get with this simple question. I never said I wanted to trade Zetterberg. He is without a doubt struggling but some of you talking him up are looking foolish.


#2251600 How open would you be to trading Hank?

Posted by BamaWing on 03 February 2012 - 12:13 AM

What kinda package would it take for you to be open to it? Just curious


#2211650 4 Players Will be Waived on Monday, 8 Assigned to GR

Posted by BamaWing on 02 October 2011 - 05:12 PM

I love Nyquist but yes definitely want him to get time in GR with a bigger role as the season goes on.
