#2532796 Alfie wants to play

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 22 July 2014 - 12:56 PM

 
I don't know though.  I mean, I hear what you're saying.  But I guess my whole point is that I think we need a whole different look up front.  Personally, I hate the idea of Alfie with Dats and Z.  I don't think he can play that many minutes first of all.  He faded fast down the stretch.  But he's also a perimeter player and so are they.  None of them are big or play great in the crease.  They're also all getting a little old and injury prone.  I definitely don't want my whole top line to come with that many question marks.  Personally, I'd like to see Jurco with Dats and Z, and Mantha with Tatar and Sheahan. 
 
Will it happen?  No.  And IMO we'll be worse for it. 

I guess I agree to an extent on the fact that there is no crease crasher, but I also don't like bogging pav and z down with a guy like Abby cause he's a crease crasher.

I only remember one game in which alfy played with pav and z and that was early in the season against Colorado. They simply dominated. I believe he's a good fit for many reasons 1) he's a righty 2) has the ability to finish of the eurotwins setups 3) thinks the game on the same level as those two.

I don't think pace is a huge issue as it's not like dats and z are burners either. If he does have trouble playing those top minutes you can always move jurco, or Tatar up while moving alfy down to the 3rd line. That's my honest opinion

As a reference look at the two kids and a goat line that used to be so damn effective it didn't have a real net front presence but they were still amazing.

id love subban but if you think montreal is goingto let him walk your crazy I was looking at whos left and I wouldn't mind possibly snagging up a del zotto whitney or morris and than possibly heatly or sedigutchi for a forward just to see if we could get some extra production going on the scoring side lets face it if w cant get a proper defensive team we need to outscore the opponent and even though I lov the kids they aren't always going to do it


I agree no way were getting subban, but instead of heater or seto why not just resign alfy he's better

The only guy I would want is del zotto other than that just go with the kids. No Quincey, were not winning the cup so let's go young. Who know maybe oullete/sproul/marchenko surprise us big time and we have a legit shot come deadline time. I would consider giving tats and DD more money on a longer term now that we have lots or cap space

Or the Pens tell you that they want Mantha Sproul and a first if they're keeping him in conference.


See I don't get that tho. If I'm a gm I take the best deal possible no matter who I'm trading with. Why settle for a less return is my thinking.


#2526531 Leafs acquire Roman Polak from Stl

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 28 June 2014 - 10:17 AM

Never heard of that guy before but looks like the Leafs gave up the best player


Polak is a very underated d-man. Big and physical, good pk guy


#2525422 Alfie informs Wings he wants to return

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 24 June 2014 - 07:56 AM

I thought he was awesome when he was playing together with the eurotwins. I also feel that he need to be playing on the left dot on the powerplay to utilize his one timer. Powerplay needs to have way more looks as it's getting stagnant


#2519721 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 08 May 2014 - 11:43 AM

Why does anyone expect Alfie to be better? he played what 65 games this year and scored 17 goals. Finished the year looking really slow, wild shot-happens when your legs are gone, and a sore back. Now he will be a year older and you expect better? I have no doubt that Mantha right now could score 17+ goals on the RW's next year. It is the other parts of the game that he needs to develop, not his shooting/goal scoring. 


Because maybe the fact that alfy was playing with nobody all year. Early in the year for the brief moment when he was playing with pavel and z he was great and it wasn't just because of pav and z (see the first Colorado game in Colorado this year). I want alfy back and I either want him riding shotgun with pav and z or down on the 4th with helm and Abby. That's just my opinion but I really still do believe the guy can contribute a lot for us


#2518337 Red Wings expect changes for 2014 - 2015

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 30 April 2014 - 09:35 AM

I think we should go for Boyle. He bridges the cap for the kids to come up and he would be huge for puck movement and the pp. He's also a vet that you know will be highly motivated to win a cup before retiring.

Next season you run....

Kronwall- smith
Dekeyser- Boyle
Big E- marchenko/ouellette

I like the looks of that
