I dont know. Even with Helm and Datsyuk out the lines still look like this :
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Abdelkader
Jurco - Richards - Tatar
Franzen - Sheahan - Glendenning
Miller - Andersson - Ferraro
Pulk would get a spot before Larkin. And neither of them would be on the fourth line but rather on the third line. So you could shift Glendening for 4th line and remove Ferraro or Andersson and insert Pulk into third line spot with Sheahan and Franzen.
I'll preface this by saying I love Pulkkinen. I know people who've met him and they say he's super down to earth and literally lives and breathes hockey. However, I really do believe he is one dimensional based on his play. His foot speed is a lot better than what draft scouts suggested, but he is a slapper and nothing else. I think he's the type of player you put next to a really great playmaker like Datsyuk or Zberg, but at the end of the day he's closer to a Damien Brunner than a Brett Hull, as he's so often compared to. IDK though I could be 100% wrong, just my limited view.
My point is I think Larkin MIGHT deserve a nod before Teemu
Number9...come on seriously. Just let it go man. Lets all move past it already. You were right...he was wrong...he was right you were wrong....we all are right in our own mind and wrong in everyone elses.....The fact of the matter is Hockey is back. Let's try and enjoy it and respect everyone's opinions.
If you don't wanna discuss what I and lefty are talking about feel free to wander over to a different thread, I'm not keeping u here lol
I cannot agree with you more. I've had Jensen on my roster pretty much all summer long. I also agree that, unfortunately, Smith has seemed to top out. He has some value in trade right now, K not much, but you could keep K as a 7th dman with Jensen and him rotating in the 6th spot. I still don't know what we're going to do when all 4 kids are out if exemptions next season. Miele played great, yet another hard working player that earns his paycheck that there is no room for because of overcrowding of players, a couple that are very replaceable.
