In Topic: Who is the better player Zetterberg or Toews. Prime vs. Present

Today, 04:03 PM

 

Ill do it the other way around

 

Zetterberg was a better goal scorer

Zetterberg was a better playmaker

Zetterberg was a better leader

 

Defensively, I honestly dont know, they are both pretty good. The only thing Toews may have on Z is that he is a bit more durable.

Toews is 8 years in. He's missed 57 games. In Zetterberg's first 8 seasons, he missed 70 games. Not a huge difference, especially when you consider that Z played a harder game than Toews does.

How can the league expect teams like Florida and Phoenix to compete when there's contracts like this going around? Its nuts. I know i'm banging the same old drum, and I know its both players and owners and GMs driving up salaries, but I still don't think anyone is worth that, and we're headed for another lockout and possibly another rollback of salaries. This will only end when the league implements a rule unlinking the cap from league revenues. Its murder....

There's a certain very large amount of money that's profited from the NHL. If you're against these large salaries and think they should be rolled back, then you're for larger more ridiculous amounts to go to owners. Salaries need to keep going up as long as profits are. The Game makes ridiculous amounts of money so give it to those most responsible.

 

If florida and pheonix can't compete it's because their teams don't generate enough profit in their area. Move the teams to places where they will. 

 

This is too much for Voracek, but only a bit I think. SInce 2012-13 he's had the 3rd most point for a winger behind OV and Kessel (from TSn). But nowhere near the goals - I would think 7.25-75 would make sense

I think one of Erhoff or Franson will be a Penguin. I think that's part of their intention with the Sutter trade. Surprising that these 2 haven't signed yet, though. Maybe Green's deal (shorter term) messed up negotiations for them.


In Topic: Mitch Callahan

My guess would be a fourth line with Miller and Glendening and Ferraro/Callahan rotating in.

IF Ferraro and Callahan have a good showing, wouldn't be surprised if this means an end to Drew Miller's time in Detroit.

Maybe. But I think We'll see Jurco there as well. Otherwise there's no room for him if Pulkkinen or Mule play once Pav is healthy.

 

Z-P-Abby

TT-Richards-Gus

Helm-Shea-Pulks/Mule/Jurco

Miller-Glen-Ferraro/Callahan

 

Miller is valuable for us on the PK and on the defensive side, but I could see his spot being taken after his contract is up.


In Topic: Brandon Sutter traded to Canucks

28 July 2015 - 11:23 PM

Pens are trying to get younger? Sutter is one year younger and I'd say better which is why pens get the 2nd and canucks the 3rd and as for clendening I don't see him being anything more than a 5-7 dman if he makes it

Pens Probably do this trade to give malkin bonino which is an insult when you consider he had james neal

Yeah, I misread Zombo's post and thought Bonino was 3 years younger. 

 

Malkin probably has Kessel next year. It's been reported/speculated that he'll be there instead of with Crosby. That's not much of an insult. Bonino played 2nd line center with the Canucks - he'll replace Sutter as the 3rd C.

 

After reading some things, I think it has to do with the fact that Sutter's Caphit is 3.3 and he's set to be a UFA next year. Bonino's caphit is 1.9 and he has 2 years left. They just signed Eric Fehr and maybe they want to get in on Erhoff or Franson. 

 

Also, Bonino's possession numbers are better and if he's played 2C last year I think that bodes well for what they got. Seems to make sense for both sides.
