Marchenko says he's paired with DeKeyser tonight. Looks like Smith is for Quincey.

Not playing Mantha in favor of Andersson is playing not to lose, not playing to win. And we all know that when you play not to lose, you usually lose. Preventing goals is necessary and nice, but if you can score it makes it a risk worth taking.

I was at the Silverdome for the Lions last game and Tiger Stadium its last year. I imagine I'll make it to a game.

Mantha has to play and put Smith in too, that's the only way they will reach the playoffs. It increases their chances

#2657397 Toews or Kane

Posted by kliq on 03 March 2016 - 09:28 PM

Agreed. Very good assessment.

 

If you asked me 5 years ago I would have picked Toews. But it's pretty obvious that Kane's offensive ability has vastly surpassed Toews. These last two years, Kane has been incredible. I'm not a fan of him as a person but all things being equal if I had to build a team around Toews of Kane I'd pick Kane. Decent defensive centers aren't too hard to come by (Toews, Bergeron, Kopitar, Pav, Z, Backes, Kesler, O' Rielly) in this era but creative consistent scoring wingers are in my opinion (only Benn, Kane and Ovie is all I can think of really). 

 

I think leadership is a bit overrated. If I had to pick between Ovie and Shane Doan I'd pick Ovie every time even though Shane Doan is probably the best leader and captain in the entire league. So while Toews is a great captain and Kane is a s***ty person, I'd still pick Kane if a game 7 is on the line. 

 

Completely agree. Toews does appear to be a good leader, but at the end of the day the culture and system in Chicago is a very strong one from Bowman to Quenville to Toews to the rest of the team. You take Towes out, and put the C on Seabrook or Keith, I still think Chicago is an elite team and can win the Cup. You take Kane out, I think they drop significantly offensively and are not able to win 16 games in the spring.




#2568548 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 February 2015 - 03:58 PM

Nevermind, the rumor originated from the @HockeyInsiderr twitter account...

 

 

 

I still think we could move our 1st rounder for one year for something we need now and not endanger our future with all the talent we have developing.  I think it would be worth the risk.  Even if Franson left.  Although, he would see that once you come here, and the money is available, there is no real reason to leave...

 

As much as I've come along on the Franson thing I would not trade a first rounder for an upcoming UFA, unless it's someone of an even higher calibre and that guy is not available. Franson is from BC so I could easily see him signing with the Canucks come the off-season. A second and a B level prospect might be worth it because the benefits would be a.) ~ 2 months of exclusively negotations and b.) being able to offer him 8 instead of 7 years ( = more money).

 

He has the size to bring back Kronwalled although it would be Franson(ed) but either way a nice addition.

Kenny actually works the phones? Maybe for hookers and pizza...


I thought that was Hudler. ;)

I'd rather see him make a good hockey trade rather than a trade for the sake of making a trade.

#2450148 Helm in, Franzen out against the Oil tonight!

Posted by GoalieManPat on 02 November 2013 - 05:40 PM

I'm usually pretty hard on Franzen, but I don't think he's played that bad this year. But he really needs a center that can get him the puck, otherwise he disappears.

 

Im going to disagree here. I think this is the worse Franzen has looked in quite a while. Hes shown up for basically the Colorado game. The rest he has been completely invisible. A guy his size should be able to impact the game without a center force feeding him the puck. Whether its taking it to the net himself or using his body to create for others. I honestly dont think Franzen cares about anything but picking up his paycheck anymore. His comments before about the regular season boring him and then his defense for not scoring last year being "Well Im not supposed to be a goal scorer anyways" just makes me believe it even more. Remember he came into the league as a strong workhorse player. Nothing in his game now resembles that. And to think the Wings could have had Hossa.

He's got over 4 million cap hit and is on par for under 25 points.  That's playing pretty bad.

#2322552 Doan staying in PHX 4 yrs $21.2 mill

Posted by St. Michael (the Red Wing) on 27 July 2012 - 06:01 PM

vladdy 100% agree with your post.. I remember the dead wings of the 70's, some fans just don''t know how good they have it.


My dad told me in the late 70's early 80's the Red Wings were called the Detroit Chicken Wings. Cause we were a bunch of *******. Maybe things haven't changed? :P

Nah like I said pipe dream for Doan.

Can Phoenix afford to sign him to a 4 year 30 million deal? If so HOW?
