#2607814 Dylan larkin #5 prospect out of top 50 on hockeysfuture

Posted by PumpkinEscobar on 14 May 2015 - 07:50 PM

I've watched pretty much every game he's played since he started at Mchigan..there's a reason why he's asked for in trade talk. Kid will be special

#2602757 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by PumpkinEscobar on 28 April 2015 - 02:12 PM

I was purely asking when does Holland get blamed for his bad moves. 
I appreciate y'all trying to change the direction of the thread though.
It's clear he doesn't get any blame for any bad moves. He can do no wrong in Detroit. 
Like I said, I disagree with that. 
I think if the Wings made it to the first round of the playoffs for the next 20 years with Holland he'd never get fired and no one would mind on here because the playoffs has become the bar.

He gets blamed every year..who are you going to get to replace him? yzerman isn't going anywhere and Bowman isn't coming either

I've seen every game that Larkin has played this season and with him expected to play one more year at Michigan...I believe Larkin will be on the Wings roster when they open the new arena

#2563142 Paterson Traded?

Very happy to see the Plymouth Whalers are moving to Flint..that's about 3-4 miles from home for me


#2562731 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

I think the more Mrazek plays the better he'll be

#2551509 Mantha getting closer.

I agree that people are oftentimes too quick to want to trade away these young guys, and I will admit that I was one of the one's that wanted to trade Tatar, but not because he's too much like Nyquist. I wanted to trade him because he would have garnered the highest return out of our assets at the time. I admit that it probably would have been a bad trade in hindsight. However, I'm still not completely against trading Tatar if the return is big enough. I love Tatar and I never wanted to give him away, but the more he plays the more I'm loving the way he plays.
Jurco is definitely an untouchable in my books and it drives me insance hearing all the people saying we should trade him. I agree with your untouchable list for the most part, but I would probably replace Marchenko with Jensen on my list. I have not been impressed much with Marchenko so far this season, and Jenson impressed a lot in preseason and is doing much of the same down in Grand Rapids. He is a great puck mover with a high hockey IQ, loves to use his body and also has a pretty underrated shot from the blueline. I would also add Athanasiou to my untouchable list. I think he's going to be a beast in the NHL one day...

I agree with Athanasiou...that size and speed will be very valuable

I think when it's all said and done there will be 3 or 4 decent players from this draft
