#2625944 Kane case headed to grand jury

Posted by amato on 18 September 2015 - 01:03 PM

Please get off the high horses and stop acting like Wings fans wouldn't be doing the exact same thing.

 

 

And I for one would be equally disgusted, maybe even more.

the passing looks pretty solid all around. Larkin and Svech stick out for sure. And whoever that second blackhawk fighter was got man handled :P

I have a black car. :)

Also when I played high school hockey. A kid on my team had white skates. Let's just say we made fun of him a lot lol.


We had a guy we faced all the time that had white skates.. he got a lot of "what, were they all out of hockey skates?" :P

#2623229 Abdelkader entering contract year, possible $4M extension?

Posted by amato on 17 August 2015 - 05:18 AM

I agree Abby and Kesler aren't really comparable but, I see no reason why we should doubt Abby replicates last season..? He really seems to have found his game. As long as he works hard again like we know he will, and gets the same opportunity under Blashill that he did under babs, 20+ goals and 40+ points doesn't seem out of the question at all.

If Abby has another season like he did, I'd have no problem with 4 mill.. He's a hard worker and he's earned it. Whatever he ends up getting, I bet he'd get more on the open market.. not by a ton but he seems like he'd be the type of guy to take less and stay here rather than leave.

Not sure if this was directed to me but I was being sarcastic.


Ah gotcha :P it was a little bit.. it was kind of just a general comment too though. a lot of people I know are too harsh on jurco too early.

I know the large amount of forwards on the roster contributes to his role last year but we haven't seen even close to the best version of jurco that we will imo

Let's see him not be on a checking line in a game.


#2622416 Who is better Nyquist or Tatar?

Posted by amato on 06 August 2015 - 12:20 PM

It's situational.. Nyquist is better if you have a cold and Tatar is better if you are eating a nice fish dinner.

....I'll see myself out.. :P

I think that a lot of the success attributed to Howard AND Mrazek really belongs to Babcock's shot suppression system.  I'm not saying that either guy wouldn't be good otherwise, but it's pretty clear that they didn't get challenged nearly as much as most goalies do.  I think I'd wait to see how things pan out under Blashill before I start penciling in starting goalies.  Might be that Howard stink worse than we thought, and Petr easily takes the job.  Then again, maybe Mrazek falters under more shots every single night and the veteran is our saving grace.  Who knows?

 

 

I feel like I remember Mrazek playing best when he got peppered with shots...? I could be remembering that wrong but he seemed to steal a couple games here and there. 

 

At any rate, I'm excited to see what blashills effect on every part of the team is. should be an exciting season

that AA-Larkin-Mantha potential though  :w00t2:




#2622208 Which prospect will have the best nhl career

Posted by amato on 04 August 2015 - 05:37 AM

Too early to say anything about Svechnikov, though I do feel good about his future. Mantha has all the tools to be a top sniper - but the golden boys of the NHL are your 1Cs, 1Ds, and 1Gs. I believe Larkin will be a 1C, or, at the very least, a damn good 2C. This is a franchise player. This is Zetterberg's successor.
 
In Larkin, we basically drafted a top-five talent at 15th overall. He's the kind of kid a team tanks an entire season for.


So #tankit2013/14 was a success? :P


#2622131 Then and Now: Tatar vs Hudler

Posted by amato on 03 August 2015 - 08:45 AM

What I want to know is which one parties harder?


Now or in their primes?
