To be honest, a lot of this Alfredsson or Jurco talk is starting to piss me off... The real issue here in my opinion is, we need to get rid of Andersson so we don't lose a kid like Callahan on waivers and we need to get rid of Kindl so we have room for one of the kids...
 
Alfredsson should be on the team if he and the team feel he's fit to play. Beneficial to the team this season without hurting the team in the future...
Jurco should be sent down to start the season in the minors. He needs more seasoning in the minors, getting top line minutes and playing in all situations...
Andersson should be waived. He has been passed on the depth chart by too many guys to crack the lineup...
Callahan should be on the 23 man roster to start the season. He has earned his chance to crack the lineup and would be a welcomed physical presence on the 4th line...
Kindl should be traded for a mid to late round draft pick to make room for one of the kids...
One of Ouellet / Sproul / Marchenko / Backman should be on the 23 man roster to start the season...


I agree with everything except that jurco should be in the minors. Jurco has earned his place in the lineup and should be starting the season on the kid line with sheahan and Tatar. I don't understand how people don't see this. On many nights this was our best line and at times dominated the opposition. Now think what they can do against 3rd lines and 3rd line d-pairings

The kid line has more chemistry than anybody on our team with the exception being pav and z. Play them together.

As for alfy he should be signed and id really like to see him play with pav and z as he has the hockey iq, skill, and most importantly shot to play well with them and finish their setups.

The real problem is the signing of cleary as all of his money could be going to alfy instead. As well he is blocking a guy like Callahan from being up with the big club

You keep talking about injuries but we've been healthy in the playoffs every year except this one.  Why are you so sure it's injuries when we've had the same result for since 2010 without any significant injuries?


Maybe because this years team is a heck of a lot better than those teams up front. Were loaded with talent up front.

D, z, mule, alfy, Nyq, Tatar, Weiss, sheahan, jurco, helm, Abby, etc. I'd say we have one of the best forward corpse in the league. Way better than 2 years ago when we lost in 7 to Chicago who we should have beat.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Tatar finish with more goals than Nyquist. Although I love seeing Gus score more than any other red wing

Yeah defense always looked shakey. Entry into the zone was the biggest problem. I can deal with no shooters from the point but we can't spend the whole power play outside the attacking zone. Kills our momentum dead happened countless times last year


I agree. But I'll blame a lot of that on not having pav and z in the lineup on a lot of nights. Those two are two of the best in the league at gaining entry into the zone

Yes. Another good thing about these deals is even if the player doesn't pan out, it is never a cap killer. Having said that, I think the chances of Tatar panning out are as likely as me winning the lottery.


I think you mean not panning out
