#2615752 Free agents this off season

Posted by amato on 23 June 2015 - 11:08 AM

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.

 

Anyone is physical to wings fans :P 

 

 

No really though, it's probably because of his hit total.. which was 177 this past season & he led all d men the year before with 282. 

 

The closest wings d man last year was actually ericsson, with 114. 

 

 

I'm not trying to advocate that hits are the only thing to playing a physical game but they do give you some kind of indication as to how physical a player is.

Don't mind me. I'm half drunk here. I was looking at Columbus' 8th overall, forgetting Wisniewski is in Anaheim... Carry on, as you were...


Hahaha okay I was confused for a second.. didn't think what I proposed was outrageous or anything. Cheers!


#2615204 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

How does a player acquire stupid speed? Does a team pay more for this? Can young players go to stupid speed schools in the summer?


Nah, you go to school to get smart speed. There are a number of ways to get stupid speed.. like watching speed, on speed, while speeding.

Kicking hard or hardly kicking?


#2615074 Jets re-sign Anthony Peluso for only 675.000 AAV (2 years)

Posted by amato on 18 June 2015 - 10:52 AM

 

9 points in 107 career games.  He does one thing well, punch.  Those guys are useless in the modern NHL.  He's so valuable he didn't play a single minute in the playoffs and only averaged 5:52 a game in the 49 games he did play int he regular season.  So valuable he was a frequent healthy scratch.

 

 

Doesn't exactly scream "best fourth liner." But hey, fights are exciting. 




#2615029 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by amato on 18 June 2015 - 08:02 AM

This article suggests Keith Yandle being traded out of new york.... wonder what it would take to acquire him? 

 

 His cap hit is extremely cap friendly due to the coyotes keeping half of it but he's a free agent after next season.

#2614901 2015 Draft

Mantha will be great. Can't wait to see what he can do with a full season. I think breaking his leg set him back a lot more than he thought it would and I imagine that was frustrating for him.

That trade Mantha thread, other than media over hyping him being available "for the right deal" or whatever, is more about the potential return a top prospect could net than it is about writing off Mantha. Every player is available "for the right deal."

and why would Detroit want that 7M/year pylon?


Agreed. We don't need Toronto's sloppy seconds :P

They said he's training right now for next season and he said he weighs 210 and his goal is to be 220-225 for camp and will try to impress the team and make the lineup


Hopefully pulk is joining him. He needs to put on some muscle for sure..


#2614128 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Posted by amato on 12 June 2015 - 12:59 PM

Make no mistake though, losing Nestrasil to Carolina last season was no huge loss, by any stretch. 

 

But look at that smile! He's got the London look :P
