#2577815 Pulkkinen sent back to GR

Posted by kipwinger on Yesterday, 09:50 PM

Unlike Jurco, if Pulkkinen isn't scoring he isn't doing much.  I like it.  He's not ready to consistently contribute in the NHL.  Particularly for a team that's looking to finish strong and position itself for a playoff run.

Nyquist sucks in the top six. He's a sweetheart, but a waif. Let him eat up third line opposition while the adults do the hard work against the big boys.

Well two things to remember, helm and marchenko out for a week to ten days, two we have no limit on the players we carry on roster, soo with that said when marchenko gets back expect kindl and quinsy to be waived or scratched, kronner-e,D-zidSmith, marchenkoSent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Where did Quincey go?

Edit: lol. Scratched or waived huh? Priceless.

Quincy is hurt right now...ankle issues...they had said may require surgery. 
 
For the time being he likely remains out.


He's expected back this week and the doctors said he could wait until the off season for surgery. Expect Quincey back in the lineup where he belongs.

Not too Shabby Kenny! I was worried about the cost of picking up Pylon so this was good!

 

Agreed.  I'm much happier with this than I would have been if we'd given up the farm for Dion. 

 

I would have preferred Anisimov and Wisniewski.  But I'll settle for this.  It's not a sea change in the quality of our team, but we didn't give up that kind of return either. 

 

Fingers crossed Dats, Z, and Kronner stay healthy a couple more years though.

Probably. Good on him for being back on a playoff team though.

 

Ten teams, zero Cups.  Speaks volumes about the efficacy of acquiring Olli Jokinen for depth lol.

I honestly think you may see Q as the odd man out a bit.  SO what happens to Kindl now? He is #8 on the list here in Detroit now....maybe 9 with Ouellet

 

Why would Quincey sit?  He's been better than Smith ALL SEASON LONG.  Why would they sit a better player?

I like marchenko but I think he'll be the odd man out

 

Why?  Part of the reason we didn't have to go big at the deadline is because Mike Babcock wanted "Marchenko to be our deadline acquisition".  He's up for good.  And they're not going to put him with another righty.  And if they're smart, they're not going to put Zidlicky in the top four.  So I don't see how else it works.

So I'm assuming our pairings look like this now?

 

Kron-Ericsson

Marchenko-Dekeyser

Zidlicky-Quincey

Smith

 

Or no?

So, despite saying that he wasn't interested in depth or rentals.  Ken Holland traded for depth and rentals.  That sneaky devil.

We're not done.  Expect to see a roster d-man on the way out now.

I've never heard of a chunky elvish princess, but that could just because of the unrealistic standards by mainstream middle earth mass media.

 

Well if all those Elvish women would stop giving their daughters "Tiger Beat" magazine they wouldn't feel the need to starve themselves to be like Liv Tyler.  I mean, what Elf can truly live up to that impossible standard?  Have you seen her bone structure?

The only problem with this beautiful story, is there's not enough nic cage.

 

If he puts one greasy finger on my baby I'll murder him where he stands.

Nice try.

Dion Phaneuf is not good enough to play for Toronto.  Toronto!  I can't believe we're even having this conversation. 

 

The Maple Leafs totally pulled a Maple Leaf when signing that Maple Leaf to his contract. 

 

Ewwww.  No thanks.
