#2520300 ECSF : (5) New York Rangers vs. (2) Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by Nevermind on 13 May 2014 - 08:54 PM

Is it just me, or has Crosby become rather lazy defensively? He was never the greatest defensive player, but he seemed really bad tonight.


There were quite a few shifts he floated on the backcheck or went for a change when the puck was going the other way.

$7 million cap hit and not very good in his own zone.

No thanks.

Franzen, Lashoff, Kindl for Jeff Petry and a bag of Chicken Chips.

I'd settle for just the bag of chips.

He won't get suspended. This league does not care about player safety at all. Remember when Lindstrom got speared by sharp and needed surgery. The league should have cracked down on this right after this report came out.



Unless used jokingly, that spelling's gotta be a cardinal sin on this site. :scared:

#2506960 The forgotten lines

Posted by Nevermind on 07 April 2014 - 10:46 AM

Of those 8 forwards, only Zetterberg is guaranteed a spot when he's ready.


If someone gets injured, Andersson will most likely be inserted into the lineup. Then Bertuzzi would probably be next in line. But barring another rash of injuries, I don't think any other forwards will see ice time from here on out.

$628K/year? Bit of an overpayment, honestly.

Maybe he models his game after Alex Burrows?

And a real top 4 defenseman would be nice.

Luongo's still seen much crazier stuff in Vancouver.

#2493331 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by Nevermind on 08 March 2014 - 10:32 PM

Keeps getting better and better


Jarnkrok has proven he can be a point per game player in the AHL over the past 20 games. It's certainly not just a hot streak either; he seems to have gotten his offensive game together (after already being very good defensively).


Nyquist was also a point per game player in his first full AHL season at the same age (22). And we all know how good Nyquist is for us now...

I fully support a conservative trading philosophy. But lately, it's not like we're holding out for very good trades.


Giving up a first round pick was overpayment for Quincey even before he played a single awful game for us. And I still think Poile strongarmed Holland for Jarnkrok; we probably could have gotten away with less since Nashville didn't want to lose Legwand for nothing and he had a NTC.

Doughty is as good or better than Kronwall defensively. 



As for Dmen to bring in, I'd be interested in Matt Greene.  Big physical defensive defenseman who's not afraid to drop the gloves when necessary, right handed, Michigan guy.  His contract is up this season.  He's been a healthy scratch a few times under Sutter so he may have soured on that relationship a bit.  


He had concussion problems in January though and I think an upper body injury, so I'm not totally sure where his health is at right now.   He's also pretty slow, which will only get worse with age.  But if he can be had for a decent price it could help bring some experience to the blueline. 


Yeah, but I think Doughty plays better when paired with a solid defensive type, like Vlasic in the Olympics. Even Kronwall makes mistakes, but I still think he's a bit more consistent than Doughty.


I wouldn't want Matt Greene though. He's a 3rd pairing guy and would get caught up in a glut of defenseman here (Smith, Kindl, Lashoff, Almquist, etc.) He's more solid defensively than any of our kids, but doesn't have enough upside to stay in the lineup IMO.


We need a true top 4 type to join Kronwall, Ericsson, and DeKeyser. Basically we need D-man much better than Quincey to take his spot. That should be the main priority as I think all the kids will essentially fight for the bottom 2 spots.

Playing with Quincey--the hockey equivalent of huffing paint.

But without the high.
