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

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 13 June 2015 - 10:40 PM

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

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

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


#2609849 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 23 May 2015 - 09:18 AM

Just realized M-raz is still leading goalies in shutouts for the playoffs with 2. Not too shabby.

Kids the real deal ... Just hope when we trade howard it won't be when his value is at an all time low ... Finally got something we can afford to trade that can actually be worth something

We always seem to lose players for nothing


#2609575 Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 21 May 2015 - 09:08 PM

Athanasiou larkin mantha could be dynamite + pulkkinen being a scoring machine ... I like Grand Rapids chances


#2609455 Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 21 May 2015 - 02:06 PM

Agreed.
 
At times Helm was a force to reckon with in the post season...He's finally turning into the player that we had hoped he'd become, but then again - as bad as it sounds - maybe his trade value is at a all time high, and what we get in return will fill a few holes?


I doubt he can fetch a lot ... A 2nd + a mid level if were really lucky? He's mostly a bottom 6 guy who can fill In and play top 6 ... And he's a playoff guy who we can never have enough of

In my eyes when zetts 40 and gone (unless he pulls a jagr and keeps performing well enough to play on and on ) helm and abdelkader will be the team leaders to help carry the next wave of wings stars

Basically he will at least be in the AHL come fall. Hoping he makes the Wings roster though. He showed he can play important minutes against high end talent already. Would love to see him get a shot centering the third line.


I just wanna see him develop into a 60-80 pt guy and just don't want us to get all excited and rush him in and go against our ways ... Thinking 1 year ahl is good enough for him to learn .... We'll see what he does in the playoffs


Larkin mantha athanasiou line would be sick


#2609442 Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 21 May 2015 - 01:55 PM

Helm to Toronto?
Larkin 3rd line c?!?!?!
This is the only thing I can think of that would make a trade matter for Larkin.


Helm isn't going anywhere , seriously doubt it he can play the wing as well and has a ton of speed

Tell Babs when he comes calling for glendening to pay up a 1st or take a hike lol

Sports net is actually showing the wings presser for whoever wants to see it
