#2527403 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 30 June 2014 - 08:52 PM

 
Where did you hear that?

Everything I've read states it's all just speculation.

They have been pretty dead on this whole off season and post mostly reputable twitter accounts even though it's a rumor site.

Trade Lashoff and Kindl to Florida for a free appetizer with purchase of an entre at Chilis.


#2526865 BUF to buy out Christian Ehrhoff

I can live without picking up a top 6 forward this off season if Holland can make Erhoff and Niskanen happen. You can take a defensive core that's in shambles and completely solidify it in one off season.

Am I reading this right? Holmstrom's midterm rank was 50 (second round) and his final rank was 90 (third round), yet we got him with pick 196? How does someone fall that far?


If it's true then great for us. I would pay good money for him to make the team and wear number 96. Would be great to be able to reuse an old jersey lol.

Anyone hear anything new on Niskanen? I know he met with teams like Minnesota. If he goes there I'm going to go postal.

"Wings drafted 5 centers. If one pans out, we might have a centerman for (Anthony) Mantha one day," European scout Hakan Andersson said."


IN HAKAN WE TRUST!

Holland realizes that we have great depth in the farm system at defense but the reality is Z and Dats are about 4 years away from being gone and they are stocking up on as many possible replacements as they can...thus not drafting any
defenseman.

Is this Hakan's magic? This kid doesn't have a mid term ranking. 
 
Gotta say, liking the size the Wings are drafting this year.


Yea I've completely stopped questioning any Euros that we draft because you know Hakan had his hands in it. I trust that they see something great in this kid. There were people who thought we were crazy we took Z.

Wasn't there just a thread where people complained we don't get enough home grown talent? Now people are complaining when we take a guy from Michigan who some are comparing to Ryan Kesler?

If a trade for Myers happens today, I would imagine it would be due to a lot of uncertainty after speaking with the Niskanen camp. Myers would be a good alternative, just more of a risk. 


I have to imagine that if Myers is traded for this has to be true. Holland is not going to give up picks and prospects when he can sign a guy for free. Niskanen would have to tell us no chance before holland trades. He isn't stupid.

I do think a lot of that has to do with the Sabres as a whole really. Myers has the tools, I think a fresh start could work wonders for him. Especially to have a vet like 55 to play with and learn from. 


Agreed. His first two seasons buffalo was a competitive team. Since then the team tanked and he went with them.
