#2614901 2015 Draft

Posted by amato on 17 June 2015 - 05:23 AM

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


#2614742 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by amato on 16 June 2015 - 08:53 AM


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

All I heard on Nosek is that he will miss at least the next two games, and Larkin will be centering a line with Pulkkinen...


I figured this would happen sooner or later. Glad it's sooner :D

#2610621 The return of The Mule?

Posted by amato on 27 May 2015 - 09:00 AM

IMHO the Mule should hang up his skates, and enjoy spending time with his family.
 
Lord knows he'll never have to work another day in his life; being on LTIR he'll continue to receive  paychecks for what's left of his contract which is what - 4, or 5 more years?


5 more years. He's signed thru 2020.

Though he's a great part of this team when healthy, I agree that he should hang up the skates for the sake of his long term health and his children.

Interesting quote... "I've had some people reach out to me," Holland told the Free Press today, "but as of right now, I haven't expanded the list."


"Sorry Babcock, you've made your decision.. now you have to live with it."

"But keeeennyyy!"

:P
