#2673442 Who gets the "A" when datsyuk leaves?

Posted by Nevermind on 24 April 2016 - 09:50 PM

I would go with DeKeyser, but I'm guessing it'll be Abdelkader.

 

Interestingly, when one of Datsyuk or Kronwall was injured this year, Blashill opted to not give the other "A" to anyone else. So we only had one alternate during those games.




#2646435 LAK/PHI trade

Posted by Nevermind on 06 January 2016 - 11:59 PM

Luck


I disagree. We clearly have trouble identifying hockey sense in young defensemen. Otherwise, you could call our success in drafting smaller, undersized European forwards luck as well.

By sucking. Remember who we got the last time we sucked? Lidstrom and Konstantinov.


Lidstrom and Konstantinov were picked 53rd and 221st overall, respectively. Any team could have drafted them.


#2624164 Curtis Glencross regrets taking hometown discount

Posted by Nevermind on 30 August 2015 - 12:18 PM

That being said, it's hard to feel sorry for someone who wasn't responsible enough with his spending when he makes that amount of money.


The article never said he's broke or was reckless with his money. Just his sentiment that he could have cashed in on his last big contract instead of taking a discount.


#2620046 Sharp & Johns to DAL for Daley and Garbut

Posted by Nevermind on 10 July 2015 - 08:30 PM

Doesn't Dallas need quality defensemen a lot more desperately than forwards? Not sure what Nill is going for with Sharp and his $5.9 million cap hit when they already have Benn, Seguin and Spezza.

I guess Chicago swapped Oduya with Daley, but their forward depth isn't what it was last year.


#2617625 Brendan Smith re-signed 2 yrs $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by Nevermind on 30 June 2015 - 05:23 PM

Someone as dumb as Smith shouldn't have access to that kind of money.


#2617610 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by Nevermind on 30 June 2015 - 05:00 PM

Dumb move. We're not hurting for cap space next season and now Weiss is on the books for 6 seasons. If Weiss still didn't improve under Blashill, we could have done the same thing next year for a more reasonable penalty over 4 seasons rather than 6.


#2614759 2015 Draft

Posted by Nevermind on 16 June 2015 - 11:31 AM

Jeremy Roy seems like a good choice at #19. Said to be a smart, reliable defenseman with good character and work ethic.


#2613574 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by Nevermind on 08 June 2015 - 09:54 PM

I think I want Chicago to win as much for the Patrick Kane afterparty photos as I do for anything else.  Those alone are worth rooting for the Blackhawks. 


Don't worry. I'm sure those photos will still happen even if the Hawks lose.


#2613298 2015 Draft

Posted by Nevermind on 05 June 2015 - 08:30 PM

If Zboril is still available, I'm not sure that I can handle another left-handed Czech defensemen named Jakub picked 19th overall and not panning out. Exactly 10 years apart too.

Kevin Porter scores 2 min in... Mantha with the primary assist after he steals the puck away in Rockford's zone


So Devellano gets the secondary assist then?


#2597342 Datsyuk Finalist for Lady Byng

Posted by Nevermind on 21 April 2015 - 06:08 PM

Along with Kopitar and Happy Hudler. Let's hope he can be mean to Tampa's Cup hopes though.


#2596508 Abdelkader to return for Game 3

Posted by Nevermind on 19 April 2015 - 12:43 AM

I would go with...

Helm-Datsyuk-Tatar
Abdelkader-Zetterberg-Nyquist
Weiss-Sheahan-Pulkinnen
Miller-Glendening-Jurco

But I'm guessing the bottom six will be this instead...

Andersson-Sheahan-Jurco
Miller-Glendening-Ferraro


#2593541 ECQF : (7) Sénateurs d'Ottawa vs. (2) Les Canadiens de Montréal

Posted by Nevermind on 15 April 2015 - 07:43 PM

I think Subban lacks maturity, but I didn't see the viciousness there for it to be 5 and a game.

Definitely a stupid play and a minor penalty, but not worse.


#2592688 Nonis Gone

Posted by Nevermind on 12 April 2015 - 03:45 PM

Is there an application I can fill out for the vacant GM position in Toronto? Afraid I may be overqualified though.


#2592548 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

Posted by Nevermind on 11 April 2015 - 09:57 PM

Before the season: Success

At the trade deadline: Disappointing
