Holland better not be a buyer this deadline... Sell off a piece or two if there's a deal to be made, otherwise stand pat...

Agree with you , wouldn't mind a veteran presence that could be physical though that wouldn't cost much

If we need d help we should keep ouellet around ... Think maybe giving aa more ice time or some other youth would make us better,I know we're not a "cup contender" but I'd wanna see us tweak our lineup a little bit so we can hopefully have a good run with pavel and hank still here

I find it odd 2 kids who dominated the ahl , yes I know it's not the NHL but still both of them dominated it at a young age and both have trouble even breaking into the wings lineup?

Personally don't think they were given enough a shot, jurco was mostly used on the 4th line and putting pulkkinen on the point on the powerplay was not a good idea in my opinion , people can say he's a one trick pony but with that shot he can get 20 a year at least

Not comparing Pulk to hull but hull was always used in the wing for one timers and that's where pulkkinen should of been

Anyways like someone mentioned ... If both of them aren't gonna be longterm wings then trade them now before their value goes down the drain

Depending on how you view the roster for next season...
Pulkkinen, Nosek?
Mind you, if Holland's going to find any kind of "significant upgrade", chances are an NHL-caliber forward is going the other way. That group of forwards actually looks a little thin. I can see Holland trying to go out and grab a seasoned UFA before putting Mantha in that top-nine group.
Edit: Double checked and both AA and Mantha are waiver-exempt until 2016-17, so even just getting Athanasiou in next year's lineup would be a "win" for those pulling for younger players on the roster.
Also, just saw this, and it's actually a pretty scary thought:
Jimmy Murphy ‏@MurphysLaw74  1h1 hour ago

Told by an NHL & NHLPA source that 2016-17 cap could go down as much as $4 million. If true, interested in what that does to trade deadline

Think we'd be a better team with aa and mantha next season , think mantha would benefit being here and say playing with Larkin ... Ironic with my name but I Think to upgrade our d nyquist has to go, can't be paying him 5 per to be on the 4th

Zetterberg datsyuk abdelkader

Tatar Larkin mantha

Pulkkinen athanasiou jurco

Glendening sheahan Miller/nosek/?

Think that would look nice , and aa and other kids will step up once hank and pav start moving down or retiring , and we still have svechnikov,holmstrom and other kids coming

Nyquist is the guy we need to use in a big deal for a 20-25 dman with lots of potential , not a Phaneuf type

I feel like this is part of our problem. We stopped using several players the way they should be used because we never filled holes with the proper players. It's thrown everything out of whack.

Its cause we "overripe" our guys .... Helm should be on the 4th and jurco/pulkkinen should be getting top 6 instead of being benched

I know it's the ahl but pulkkinen dominated there, the fact that he's being benched nonstop is ridiculous ... I know he's gotta earn it but we should be giving him top 6 minutes with some powerplay time for a good chunk

And please stop putting him on the top for the ppl, he should be on the wing so he can get some on timers

Back to helm,no doubt he will be missed but we got guys like nosek coming up who can contribute on the 4th

I think the rumor out there is 8 years, 56M. Obviously, these guys are going to start higher and meet somewhere in the middle, but man...
Maybe it's just me, but these contracts out of the ELC's are getting ridiculous. I'm not sure where it started, exactly, but a lot of guys are foregoing the "bridge" deals. Lucic, Hall and Eberle come to mind as guys who made the leap right to bigger cap hits. DeKeyser and Mrazek are in a different situation, but it makes me worry a little about Larkin once his ELC is up.

I got no problem giving more money to Larkin and mrazek if it means we could have them in good deals in 2-3 years .... 5 mill each x8 years I'd do it now

Always depends on the individual player
