My favorite picture of Brian. Can you imagine the look on Lesnar's face when he steps into the ring?

#2598513 Zach Hyman Won't Be Signing With Florida

Posted by number9 on 23 April 2015 - 11:57 AM

 

 

I think miele re-signing depends almost solely on that..

 

A solid AHL center and hometown boy? I would love for him to stay in GR unless he has a shot at the NHL anywhere else

 

but with the combination of his age and how he didn't stick in phoenix after success at the ahl level, chances are looking slim. 

 

He's only played 15 NHL games, if I was him I'd want another look

Well they are meeting with Chiarelli, so he can trade McDavid for another bad return.

 

Honestly it would be a good move, Chiarelli is miles ahead of MacTavish and he did build a Stanley Cup contender. If they end up with McDavid, Chiarelli and maybe McLellan that's a great summer for them but man their player shopping list is huge: top pairing defender with size, proven goaltender.

 

Your 180 on Chiarelli is remarkable




#2598372 Zach Hyman Won't Be Signing With Florida

Hyman sounds like he has a high potential for being a bust. A 3year entry level deal may be too much to risk on him if it costs a possibly better player a roster spot.

 

That being said I think his first choice is clearly the Wings, unless he's a true blue Leafs homer. Shafting the kats in order to go play with your buddy Larkin in GR makes sense to me.

I wouldn't mind if they offered him a contract. They'll be shedding a few and I'm not sure if any of the prospects with a '15 deadline will be signed (McNulty, Wheaton, Marshall or Hudon). Not sure what Hyman's endgame is (I'm guessing he may want to jump right into the NHL), but I'd be comfortable taking a chance on him. He'd have to start in GR, though.


Thinking McNulty and Wheaton will be signed

McDavid reported to the mess that was Erie. Why would he suddenly pull a Lindros now? Don't see it happening, he's a pretty down to earth kid unlike the infamous Lindros

I wanna preface this by saying I no longer do any recreational drugs,or hang out with people who do, because I'm an adult, that said.
I've been to a lot of parties, and have known quite a few nefarious cads, but unless all these people are new to doing these drugs, that's not ALOT of drugs.
They'll be able to say his stash was for personal use because for someone with a problem, that much can be done in a weekend.(not entirely by himself, sure, but its not like he had a kilo of coke)
Hell probably get community service and some type of treatment program, which upon completion will scrub the felony from his record.

That is a lot to have in your swimsuit.
Like, that seems like a horrible place to keep it, but whatevs

 

For one guy that's a crap ton of Molly.... bout one weekend of coke  :lol:

 

EDIT: And for the record, I used to do drugs... I still do, but I used to too - Mitch Hedberg

If Babcock, Blashill, and McLellan are our options,

 

I choose Babcock

God bless the interwebs.




#2596871 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by number9 on 20 April 2015 - 01:59 PM

 
I'm sorry, what's the issue? Aside from actually it being better if Smith swapped with Ericsson?
 
Q and DK have been our best D pairing by far, and I actually like that last combo of Smith and Zidlicky. 


I think he was joking about Cleary

What teams are looking for new coaches? Leafs, SJ?

 

TOR, SJ, PHI, BUF, possibly DET




#2596577 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by number9 on 19 April 2015 - 11:22 AM

Big E 3 goals 12 assists -5
Danny 2 goals 29 assists +11

Any questions? Not to get off the subject but if we brought up Mantha right now this forum would go insane with Mantha fever. At least we'd see the "future" face of the franchise.

 

You're comparing the point totals of a stay at home D-man to a two-way D-man. Scoring points is not Ericsson's role on the team. That comparison doesn't make a whole lot of sense. And +/- is far from a reliable stat.

 

More, DK had 106 minutes of PP time this year, second only to Kronwall among our D-men. Big E had a grand total of 14 minutes of PP time the entire season. So you can see why DK scores more, that's one of his roles on this team. And yet being a 30 pt D-man shouldn't excuse one from bad penalties and bad mistakes. There was more criticism about Kronwall this year than there was about DK which is laughable.

 

Mantha fever is exactly my point. If we brought him up and he didn't perform well everyone blinded with fever would make excuses for him.




#2596519 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by number9 on 19 April 2015 - 02:25 AM

They are in different stages of their careers. Ericsson should be in the veteran phase whereas Dekeyser is still learning the game. They say it takes 3-4 seasons to know what you have with NHL defensemen. I think we know what we have with Ericsson now.

 

Who says that?

 

Everyone pretends to be fair and unbiased, but DK receives almost zero criticism for his mistakes and bad penalties. You don't get a pass for age. When you F up you F up.

 

If we played a new player like Mantha right now, and he screwed up a lot, everyone would say "He's not ready"
