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)
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.
Outside of the kid line i don't think anybody had a particularly good game. Even the kid line got hemmed in their own zone for entire shifts. Howard made some big saves, but he couldn't single handedly will the team to victory, which he shouldn't have to.
Honestly I don't know what this team needs. Probably for kindl and bert to not be on it. Outside of that I don't know what will work.
How the hell do other team's fans call the wings the ref wings? Seriously, I've never seen a team get the shaft as often, but everyone thinks the wings get some sort of favorable treatment from the refs.
You have to look ahead towards the future .... Getting the top 4 dman would be a lot more valuable .... Everyone's just thinking about the present and keeping the streak alive ... While it's nice I much rather prefer looking ahead
Our chances of getting in the playoffs let alone winning the cup aren't great this season ... Just being realistic
As opposed to playing on a team stacked full of talent and having no pressure on him and yet producing mediocre numbers that even Hayley wickenheiser would surpass?
