Holland probably shows up an hour after the draft starts every single year for the last 20 years.

 

He's still out in the parking lot kicking tires.  :lol:

 

And now I hate myself for cliche Holland joke.

So in the final analysis, Boston traded Phil Kessel for two first round picks, drafted Seguin and Hamilton with said picks, and then traded each of them?

 

It's not often that a blockbuster trade takes place and one team ends up with NONE of the primary pieces of the trade.  That takes some effort.

they should poll the forwards and ask who is the hardest defenceman to play against.

 

karlsson's name would NEVER get mentioned.

If they want to buy out Weiss they might as well wait until next year anyway.. maybe he bounces back but even if he doesn't, the cap hit from the buy out will be less in both term and dollars. We can afford keep him on the books this season and add a contract if we so choose.

 

Exactly. Ton's of cap space this year. See what Blashill can do with him. Maybe he plays well enough to generate some trade interest. If he struggles, dump him next June when that 2.5M (or whatever) in cap space  becomes more valuable.

I also read somewhere that it's "not about the money" & where he signs depends more about the quality of team he could sign to and what role he would get on said team. He wants top minutes, more power play time, etc.. something the wings could obviously give him based on the state of the defense. I think all of that points to him being signed by the wings, assuming he means it when he says "it's not about the money" & signs at a decent value. I would love to sign green at say 3 years, 12 million. But I expect him to get more. He'll certainly get better offers from teams like the oilers.

 

Awwwwww Yeah. This joke keeps writing itself. :lol:

Because the Wings are so soft that even a women would toughen them up. Hardy Har.
 
Sports jokes that connect the perception of a weak athlete to a women are soooooooo funny. :rolleyes:


Holy crap I didn't have to be the one to say it this time

The time for Detroit to acquire ROR was prior to last offseason.  


It's never *NOT* the time to trade for ROR. His beard alone brings things like "truculence" and "intangibles."

Agreed. I was going to say something like this since the Norris has basically become for the defenseman with the most points..

Personally I think a purely offensive defenseman should be in the same category as some other point producers. That would greatly improve the Norris and actually make sure that guys who shouldn't even be in the conversation for the trophy won't take it away from much more deserving players . Or if that's not possible just split it into the best overall defender and the one with the most points that way everyone knows which award is the more important one for a ..defender.

I mean not even nominating Weber, Suter and Keith ? Too bad Giordano for hurt guy would have won otherwise.

lol - I watch 82 Leafs games a year... Marchenko is already more physical than Franson... I have no idea who started the notion that Franson is a physical player. Big does not mean physical.

 

 

Well then your judgement is suspect anyway lol.
