#2534146 Alfie wants to play

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 13 August 2014 - 10:50 AM

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 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

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
