#2474900 1/20 GDT: Blues 4 @ Red Wings 1

Sheahan and Jurco with least ice time - most chances created too. Well played babcock

That may be in the future.  Don't be surprised.  Every good thing must come to an end, though i'm not even sure Babcock is a good thing anymore.

I think babs could coach a decently healthy team but his bad habits (cleary all the time, sammy on the point) shine heavily when we have kids as the other option. Its been said a million times but his message is probably getting stale. IF the roster turns over this offseason with the old guys out and young guys in the message may be fresh for most of the roster so it COULD work.

From some beauty a few years ago: "The wings look like Barrett Jackman's dick: small, soft, and manhandled by the entire Blue's team.

I must admit, that was one of the strangest goals I've seen in a long time.  But it's nice that it went OUR way for a change.  We're usually the victims of something that  bizarre.

The Brad May No-goal against dallas...

Sheahan with a solid 19 mins tonight. Babs likes the kid. Helm who?


If I was one of the injured guys I'd grab my job real fast with these young guns flying all over the place. 




#2473605 Perspective?

Posted by dirtydangles on 16 January 2014 - 11:11 PM

One nice thing about being injured is that Holland and Babs can directly compare guys like Jurco, Sheahan, Glendening, Nyquist, and Tatar to his beloved vets Cleary, Sammy, Bert, Quincey and see how worthless their play really is when these kids have eclipsed them in every way other than birth certificates. Without this - it would be far more likely these hot pieces of garbage would be re-signed this offseason instead of promoting a more talented youngster at a far lower cap hit.

Ah damn. Good game overall. That was a dog fight. I gotta hand it to the refs - they kept the flow going nicely - wish more games were officiated like that.

My boy Nyquist has been pretty invisible lately. Honestly think Sheahan is the real deal and looks the most ready of Jurco/Nyquist/Sheahan tonight.

I can only attribute these injuries to players having to play "up" to a level/line they are not accustomed to and getting injured? Helm was 2C and got injured (normally 3C). Same with Andersson. Alfie was being leaned on heavily. Deke was expected to be a No.3. Ericsson a top pairing dman. And these guys just aren't built for that kind of gameplay.




#2473032 2014 draft thoughts.

Posted by dirtydangles on 14 January 2014 - 08:52 PM

 

 

1st line: LW Mantha C???? RW Frk

2nd line: LW Jurco C???? RW Tuch

3rd line: LW Abby C Helm RW Callahan?

4th line: LW Andersson C Sheahan RW Nastasiuk

 

 

5 years? More like:

 

Mantha C??? Jurco

Tatar Jarnkrok Nyquist

Abby Helm Pulkkinen

Athanasiou Sheahan Nastasiuk

 

Athanasiou at least makes the 4th line with his wheels. Sheahan may very well be much more than a 4th line C but at worst that is where he gets. Jarnkrok will be a 2C (I know it doesn't look like it now with his point totals). No way Nyquist or Tatar disappear in Ken Holland's world. The guy isn't trading anyone (look at recent history). I think Callahan makes the team next year as an extra forward just like Ferraro - but I don't see them being career Wings necessarily. Glendening will be another guy that is on the team for a while but is eclipsed when new guys emerge.

I'd like them to trade our 1st this year to a desperate team for a 1st next year. Next year we trade 2 firsts to move way up to get a 1C prospect. Its not like we need quantity at this point - we need a quality 1st line C prospect and that won't come where we draft without trading up.

 

Alternatively, if we move a piece for another 1st at the deadline (i dunno who) we could try something like this this year potentially too.

 

We desperately lack that 1C in the system and this is the best and least expensive way to get one.
