In Topic: Mantha's Injury

18 September 2014 - 08:31 PM

I'll be shocked if he makes the team now (this season that is). It's one thing to play in the preaseason and slowly get used to the NHL level, and try to earn a spot. But I highly doubt (especially the way Kenny is) that Mantha will go from injured and not skating for weeks, straight into the NHL regular season. On any team odds would be Mantha doesn't make the team this year. On the Red Wings, it's a 100% certainty. Although It wouldn't surprise me at all if the injuries start to pile up, in which case I guess anything is possible. But if I were betting on this my money would be on Mantha making the team next season. Hope I'm wrong tho cause I'll take an unproven Mantha over Dan Cleary any day.

We should definitely be doing this as soon as possible. Not that this should be the 'end all be all' when making line up/line decisions. But it is legitimate information that should at least be taken into account along with everything else.

Wow, I really can't even wrap my head around this... Even when Cleary wasn't injured he was a healthy scratch. Hate to say it but this move really makes Ken Holland look clueless. And I've been one of Kenny's biggest defenders. What could he possibly be thinking? Waste of money, and more importantly waste of a roster spot. Unreal.

Again, you wouldn't give up Tatar but you would be completely okay with giving up Jurco in a trade such as this?...


Neither would be going the other way in this trade anyway... I would expect a mid level roster player or mid level prospect and a draft pick.

Def wouldn't want to give up Jurco. But if it had to be either Jurco or Tatar, I'd have to go with Jurco. Jurco is much more unproven than Tatar at this point.


And yet you're more than willing to give up Jurco (a more valuable player)....... :shocking:

How is Jurco a more valuable player?? Because he's bigger? He has a much smaller sample size of NHL games. Tatar has showed that he for sure belongs in this league. Jurco has looked solid but def hasn't been as impressive as Tatar.
