#2614939 2015 Draft

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 17 June 2015 - 12:55 PM

I'm not writing him off.  I'm saying he doesn't drive offense.  He's like Franzen in that way.  Because he's soft and doesn't enjoy working hard, other people have to create offense for him to capitalize off of.  Tons of very productive guys in the NHL are like that. 
 
But your point is taken.  When 6'4, 200+ lb. guys like Mantha play against 16-18 year olds, they're super impressive.


And your point is taken ... Get a broken leg , miss training camp and a bunch of games and don't score a goal a game in a new league that's not his age group and let's all jump on the kid and say he's not that good

And nobody said mantha was gonna be a playmaker and drive offense ... Is pulkkinen gonna drive some offenses? Give me a 30+goal

Give the guy a full season to prove himself ... He's already hard at the gym training trying to bulk up not tanning and drinking beer , doesn't seem lazy to me

Probably.  If Dylark can make a plug like Zach Hyman look like a star, he should do wonders for Floaty McManthason.

Didn't see dylark help floaty mcmanthason get 100+goals and help him dominate the world juniors and get him named as one of the best forwards of the tournament?

Seriously think everyone needs to relax and see how he does with a full season under his belt before writing him off


#2614541 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

For anyone who understands french there's a video of anthony mantha being interviewed here in montreal adressing the rumors

Doesn't know if the rumors are true ... . He says if he gets traded to another team it's for the better cause the other team that traded for you wants you more

They said he's training right now for next season and he said he weighs 210 and his goal is to be 220-225 for camp and will try to impress the team and make the lineup


#2614493 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

I believe Holland, based on his relationship with Babcock, already has a trade in place to send Mantha and our first to Toronto for Phaneuf.
Boy it sure is easy making things up. And fun too. We should both be like Cox and do this for a living.


Go for it ... You can Give eklund a run for his money

It would cost more to get the 3rd overall and ekman larsson .... Kindl Ericsson and smith are all 3rd pairing guys


#2614287 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Twitters hilarious everyone's dreaming of getting mantha and the 19th pick for basically nothing


#2614271 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 13 June 2015 - 10:11 PM

6 months ago I'd like like nooooooooooo. But with how quickly Larkin is coming along, and the emergence of guys like Little Bert, all is well if it is for the right piece. Gonna be an interesting summer for sure!


Everyone's just willing to give up on him cause he didn't score 50 goals in 50 games .... We need to see him play a full season next year before trading him off

Damien Cox ‏@DamoSpin 2m2 minutes ago
At deadline, DET unwilling to move either first round pick or prospect Anthony Mantha. Now willing to deal either or both.
 
Damien Cox ‏@DamoSpin 1m1 minute ago
Btw, if Wings had been willing to move Mantha at trade deadline, Dion Phaneuf would have become a Red Wing.


A first and mantha for Phaneuf and his 7 million cap hit even now we'd get f***ed

I don't pay attention to anything damian cox says .... And for everyone who's thinking mantha is a bust bnd is willing to part with him should really thank twice .... Mantha came in missing camp and a bunch of games, it's wayyyyyyyyyyyy to soon to say he's a bust and be ok with trading a big man who can shoot


It's just ridiculous


#2614023 2015 Draft

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 11 June 2015 - 03:01 PM

I'll take AA over Strome any day...I have a feeling Strome was a product of McDavid


Strome schmome

Last few days on hockeysfuture axel holmstrom and now dylan larkin are top news ... Athanasiou as you mentioned , bertuzzi, mantha etc...

Were stacked upfront

Stud goalie in mrazek

We need to draft some solid d's this year and were set ... Futures bright man

Might even consider dealing a Tatar or nyquist for a good young dman since we'd still have one left +sheahan pulkkinen jurco

Forget strome ... Get me some d's

Stupid habs fans


#2613235 The "enigmatic" Tomas Jurco: A Thread

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 05 June 2015 - 08:40 AM

I expect good things from jurco next season ... Needs a bigger role than being a checker and I'm sure Blashill will give it to him

Wings need to get rid of some bodies and make room for some kids like jurco to shine


#2613019 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 03 June 2015 - 04:02 PM

Yeah, NYI and St. Louis were real all star teams when he played there. Still solid numbers, first year in NYI they made the playoffs for the first time in years. Saved the Wings asses during the 2008 cup run as well, and was instrumental in them making the Finals the following year. Some people will just never give the guy the credit he deserves because he played on some great Wings teams. Oh well.


He's just not as great as you think he is ... If he played his whole career in nyi and slt he would of won nothing ... Look back at the wings lineups during those glory years ... Truly remarkable stuff , never needed a superstar goalie to win with that lineup

Now imagine if we had hasek in nets as well from 93-05 how many cups we'd have

What really gets me is how people are praising osgood so much and yet s***ting on federov and he's the one who's had the way better career in detroit , only cause he chased some money along the way

I'm really not trying to turn this into an Osgood debate, but it looks like it's already heading that way. 
 
Using the fact that Osgood "took advantage of all-star teams" against him completely ignores the fact that guys like Fuhr, Sawchuk, Plante, and Smith ALL played for dynasty teams as well. 
 
I don't see anybody arguing that Grant Fuhr's banner should be pulled down because he played with Messier and Gretzky.


Those guys you mentioned were also the best goalies of there time and won vezina's and conn smythe's, in nets for many cups

Brodeur roy hasek and others were miles away better than osgood


#2612996 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 03 June 2015 - 10:15 AM

Osgood holds all the Red Wings goalie playoff records, I think if Fed's jersey get's retired, Osgood's should too.

Ya cause he played for hall of fame teams ... Hawks win the cup again and maybe a 4th you retire corey crawford a jersey in Chicago? Come on .... Ozzie looks like a good guy but he was an average goalie who was fortunate to be in the teams detroit had ... He never had to steal a series for the wings

Can you do one for Dandenault also?

Dandenault gets one ... So does gilchrist


#2612884 The "enigmatic" Tomas Jurco: A Thread

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 02 June 2015 - 05:42 PM

Still only 22 and was used more as a checker ... Still think he can at least get around 20 goals

To soon to give up on jurco ... I think Blashill will get him going again


#2612661 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 01 June 2015 - 07:54 AM

Can't believe tampa made it to the finals after we gave them the series with a goalie who's greatly overrated

And I didn't want Chicago to win, wanted a new winner .... The 2 teams I didn't want to win ... I can honestly say I'll be watching the nba finals hoping lebron loses over watching the nhl finals this year
