Petr Mrazek's WCH mask looks awesome.

I never really put any players in the same pool or made any comparison between them. I've said that I still think Zetterberg is a top 6 talent and shouldn't be dropped to the 3rd line. I've also said being moved to the wing, rather than playing center should keep his legs going longer into the season.

We're calling Jurco and Smith offensive guys now? Based on what? Everyone is so good at pointing out the problems with the team without providing any better solution

We can't score so play Smith and Jurco more who also can't score... Rock solid logic


If I recall, when he was in the lineup, Smith did very well for himself last season. If we aren't getting a dman, I say put Smith on the top pair with DD.

Jurco needs to be used correctly. He is an offensive threat. But not on the 4th line with Miller and Glendening. When he was with Sheahan and Tatar he did very well. I'd love to see a line of JURCO-AA-MANTHA.

Will we though?  :brow:


Shhhhhhhhhh!

Marty Lapointe got paid $4 mil, Holland let him go. Just because a player can get X amount ofiney doesn't mean it's smart to give him that much.

 

If this is in response to me, read my post carefully. I never implied it was a "smart deal", I simply said it was market value. Again, market value and a good contract are NOT the same things.

Wasn't aware that talking about an off season signing in the off season thread was derailing...just wanted to be told again how great off deal we got and shown the advanced stats that prove it.

You're right, it's all under the bridge anyhow, but it sure would've been nice to not overpay low level talent or at least pay him market value. Oh well...

Now we see who we lose to waivers soon. Everyday it gets closer to camp, the less confidence in have that Holland is going to acquire a defender and thin out his forward corps a bit.

 

Normally you're right, and it would not be derailing. But when the topic has been talked about to death in many threads and keeps being brought up without any new info or points being added, that's when it becomes "derailing" Nobody wants to read in every single thread "Helm sucks" "Helm does not suck" etc. etc. etc.

 

I have to say though, while I agree Helm was overpaid given our teams roster/payroll, saying Holland should have paid market value is just wrong as he was paid exactly that. Many reports out there state Helm could have been paid more from other teams. Remember, market value is simply that market value. Market value doesn't mean good contract.

Trouba should just tell the Jets this.

 


Anyone friends with Trouba in real life? Plenty of Michigan folks here. Convince the guy to try to come home.

Trouba and the Jets far apart on everything: http://www.thehockey...stand-out-most/

 

God, I'd love for him to play next to DeKeyser on the top pair and get all the PP time his heart desires.

I'm just waiting for someone to explain to us that even if he only got $2.8M it would be a great deal. Just seems to me that even if he got drew miller money, he'd still be overpaid compared to players with similar advanced stats. Oh well, Holland is the genius, not any of us. Of course that makes miller an ott and Glendening also grossly overpaid.

Let's just hope helm scores 25 goals this year amongst 50 points.

 

I thought we were done derailing every thread into this? Can we please just move on from Helm's contract?

 

Despite being paid market value, nobody is disputing that Helm is a bit overpaid. I know you get annoyed when the "pro Helm" crowd speak up, but what do you expect when you says things like "even if he got drew miller money, he'd still be overpaid". There is no way that you don't realize that a comment like this is going to re-start the already exhausted debate.

 

Please just move on.

 

This is turning into "You/Franzen", "Bill/Miller", "Dickie/Abby 7 years" territory.

Darren Helm third line center is solid, but overpaid by close to a million a year. Darren Helm scoring line winger sucks.
