#2628055 10/2 Exhibition GDT : Toronto Maple Leafs 2 at Red Wings 4

Wait until the kid actually gets strong. He's really good now, and he's noticeably smaller than everyone else on the ice. A years worth of pro training and he will be even better.


Great point. Once he fills in, look the f*** out NHL. (Have fun in TO Babs)

#2627869 Completely Healthy Roster?

Yeah. I'm not saying Miller is irreplaceable. Simply that whoever replaces him should play a similar game. We're not going to see Anthony Mantha on the fourth line.

Either way, the more I read quotes from Holland or Blash, the less I believe any of the prospects will start in Detroit this season.

“What I think they’re doing, regardless of decisions, they’re putting themselves in a good spot, whether it’s now or down the road,” Blashill said, referring to players like Larkin, Athanasiou and Mantha.
“You want to build a resume, so every time you go out and have a good game you build a resume,” Blashill added. “Preseason is different than the real action, you’re playing against – not necessarily NHL players all of the time – so you have to temper your enthusiasm. But they’re real good, young players.”

I think it's great.  Show how much enthusiasm there is for the sport.  You've got to remember, this is just the pre-season and people are irritated that they can't see it.  A few short years ago nobody cared about pre-season hockey.  It's crazy the change you see in the consumption of the sport.  You've got people watching the draft, playing fantasy hockey, watching the preseason, following minor league affiliates, and monitoring European prospects overseas.  That kind of stuff probably doesn't seem that crazy to the Canadian fans, they've been at that level for a while.  But that's entirely new and exciting for American fans.  It means that the sport is growing.  And everybody has to like that. 

Well when you put it that way, you make me feel like hockey needs to file a restraining order against me.

This guy thinks we are a contender. And he's saying EXACTLY the same thing Kip is saying. top 4 D man needed. 


Kevin Allen knows his s***, but KipWinger is my go to guy.

I just don't see Callahan's offensive upside, he's good defensively, and hes been in on some rough stuff. So he's not bad.
I don't see where he fits.

Famous Amos makes some disgusting cookies.

He defended a child pornographer? 




The man is literally doing his job, and that makes you mad?

I think Roose made the mistake, or had an older lineup sheet. Either way, Quincey's in tonight - not Smith. My guess is that the lineup sheet that Roose had was from earlier in camp when Smith-Kindl were paired. HSJ tweeted this out earlier: https://twitter.com/...699630814724096

As far as I know, Quincey is playing tonight and Smith is sitting.

And all of a sudden, here on LGWs, last night's game never happened. LOL :lol:

We'll have to see, but I'm 95% sure it's Quincey in with Kindl tonight, not Smith...

I cannot agree with you more. I've had Jensen on my roster pretty much all summer long. I also agree that, unfortunately, Smith has seemed to top out. He has some value in trade right now, K not much, but you could keep K as a 7th dman with Jensen and him rotating in the 6th spot. I still don't know what we're going to do when all 4 kids are out if exemptions next season. Miele played great, yet another hard working player that earns his paycheck that there is no room for because of overcrowding of players, a couple that are very replaceable.


Revisionist. Post #4 of this thread: http://www.letsgowin...r-roster-lines/


Marchenko and Kindl are you third pairing.


And even if you did mention Jensen being in the line-up it was probably at the expense of Quincey (just like a Marchenko - Kindl was) and that would be a mistake because Quincey should be one of the best 3rd pairing D in the league this year.

I'd argue that hockey players - and all people - who DON'T drink too much are the ones with brain damage.

Or, as it has been noted, she hovered over Kane for several hours at the club, repulsing other girls who got close, witness reports state she was going home with him as was her agressive intention.  Spending several hours in a club, then ride home, it could have easily happened there.

Wow. A bartender mentioned that a woman he couldn't identify as the victim was hanging around Kane that night. Please don't change the story to support a bias.

I doubt if you asked Probert in his prime what long term issues he might have as a result of his play he'd have been able to articulate what actually ended up happening.
