I don't think people understand how much offense will be gained with a better D corps.




#2519372 Was Legwand worth it?

Well, it looks like he won't be resigned.  I guess I question why Holland traded for him in the first place at this stage.  Yes, I know, to make the playoffs.  I still believe we should have given the kid a chance at the NHL level first.

 

He was signed because Joakim Andersson was the first line center. Seriously, reread that sentence and let it soak in. Andersson is a borderline NHL player and he was playing 1C. Even if the team was mathematically out of playoff contention that is still unacceptable. Something had to be done, so Holland pulled the trigger on Legwand.<-------------That is why Detroit traded for him.




#2519367 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by Dave on 06 May 2014 - 08:44 AM

 

Simple.... because you DON'T ever let a proven player like Hossa slip through your fingers EVER!!!! He is a career superstar! Franzen at the time looked like he could be but was still relatively unknown.... Worst Ken Holland mistake to date in my opinion.

 

Hurts even more because we know first hand that even when Hoss isn't scoring he is a wicked defensive player as well where Franzen is completely invisible and contributes nothing in his very loong down periods

 

None of this hasn't been said before. This is the same post over and over and over and over and over and over.....

The Bruins need the officials in order to beat us. Whatever.


Detroit had 3 power plays. They had their opportunities.

#2501741 Weiss - who would take him next season and does he have a full NTC

Posted by Dave on 27 March 2014 - 12:38 PM

Hmmmm, never really gave the thought of Weiss playing wing...that could work out wonderfully.  BOTH Jurco and Glendening have exemptions remaining to cover next season, so much like Nyke this season, they can start the year in GR without the chance of losing them, thus opening up two roster spots up front...lets look at this:

 

I hate Franzen anyway, and I especially hate him on the top line.  Nyke should be there and that is where I am starting him.

 

Nyke - Dats - Z

Weiss - Leggy - Alfie

Fish - Tinky - Abby

Franzine - Barbie - Miller

(Andy - Ferraro - Dirty Harry)

 

Kronner - Big E

Smitty - UFA (Morris)

Diesel - UFA (Mitchell)

Laser

 

Ugh (Howard)

Vokoun

 

That's 24 players with Glenny and Jurx stating GR.  Trading Kindl (no so) Fire and Almost Almqvist for a couple of picks.  If you feel the pinch of a lower cap, then Andy can be packaged as well, or maybe sign bit cheaper D-man instead of one of Mitchell or Morris. Unless you'd want to roll the dice on Marchenko and only sign Morris.

 

I know this is a Weiss thread, and I really didn't mean to respond with a roster of possible next season ufa's, but the idea of Weiss playing wing lead me to where I may be able to put others...sorry.

 

Those are the worst, most forced nicknames I've ever seen. Seriously....please just type their names out.
