I may be going to the Sweden vs. Russia game I haven't decided yet. Larkin's North America jersey looks pretty sweet.

Fact is... When Franzen was feeling it he was the most dominant power forward in the league... He played hard went to the net creamed a guy here and there pretty much exactly what we wish we had now

I have nothing but great memories of Franzen. He single handedly won series en route to back to back finals. If it wasn't for his freakish scoring I don't think we win in 08. I don't think I've ever seen a player so dominant. Consistent? Not quite but when he was on one of his crazy streaks there was absolutely nothing that could stop him

I thought you were done talking about Helm's contract? Now you're just going to get the pro-Helm crew to talk about how great he is.

 

Back to square one. 

 

But yes. Helm is overpaid. I think everyone on this board has acknowledged that. 

wait a minute there buddy... I'm not overpaid ;)

Mrazek has signed a two year deal. $3.85 and $4.15

 

Very respectable deal!

Ok, no ott or miller....still have helm.

Tatar - Nielson - Vanek
Zetterberg - Larkin - Abdelkader
Jurco - AA - Nyquist
Helm - Sheahan - Glendening
Frk since he has no exemptions & Tangradi maybe

I'd much rather have Mantha up and no helm as well. Plus I'm still hoping Nyquist gets dealt in a D trade....but...

Dude, do you not like the Helm deal or something?

#2683534 Wings Sign G Jared Coreau

Posted by kliq on 20 July 2016 - 06:02 PM

It'll be funny if Coreau is claimed off waivers. :lol: at Holland for his "loyalty" to players that were never that good to begin with!

I don't understand how he can just cast aside young players with a better upside for the likes of players like helm, miller, Ericsson, howard. The same crap we've lost with the last 4-8 years...oh well!

 

We haven't lost anyone of significance due to waivers. I know you have complained about Nestrasil being lost, and you always talk about Jensen possibly being put on waivers, but players like this have no value and are put on waivers every single year by every team. You can't give every young kid a chance, some just arent good enough, or are a dime a dozen. I would much rather have a Helm who you listed then a random young guy or Nestrasil.

 

Some guys definitely are left down too long, but some guys are brought up to quickly (Jurco), hindsight is always 20/20.

 

You take out Howard and E, and our contract situation IMO is fine. If those 2 contracts didn't exist, I don't think people would even be talking about the Helm contract.




#2683242 Who should get A?

Posted by krsmith17 on 15 July 2016 - 05:34 AM

Again, what buds??? People are trying to create this narrative that Larkin is buddy buddy with all these Leaf players when it's not true at all... Why? Just to be negative? There's not enough negativity around here lately?...

 

If Larkin were to leave the Wings to play with a buddy, it would be Columbus with Werenski, and if you believe he's going to leave Detroit to play in Columbus, whatever...

If Helm finished on half of his short handed opportunities, he would probably be right there with Draper now... But like Echolalia said, even when he's not scoring on all of the opportunities that he creates, he's still amongst the best penalty killers, just by eating valuable time off the clock down in the oppositions end...




#2683457 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 18 July 2016 - 11:10 PM

I live about 45 minutes from Nashville, for the fans and the community, be it a seemingly small one, I hope he does well here and it draws more fans to the sport. It may even get me out to my first Preds game, I've lived here 3 years, maybe it's about time. 

 

I'm personally a big fan of the guy, he has a big heart, a big personality, and was overwhelmingly charitable for his community when playing in Montreal. He's good for the sport, plain and simple. I hope he's well received in Tennessee.

One of the best bottom 6 players in the league.

One of the best penalty killers in the league.

One of the fastest skaters in the league.

One of the most tenacious forecheckers in the league.

 

Good top 6 forward? No. Good bottom 6 forward? See above...

Slightly overpaid? Yes. Way overpaid? Hell No.

 

But keep trying to create the narrative that "Helm sucks"...
