#2641299 Bummer, Miller & Pulkkinen out a while

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 04 December 2015 - 07:56 PM

We need to focus less on one player and root for the team as a whole.
The Tatar- Sheahan - Nyquist line has been one of our best. Blashill personally thinks it IS the best. (per his interview today). So that's not going to split.
Richards is useless on the 4th line - he would get demolished sooner or later. 
Jurco has experience on the 4th line. 
Blash is using his head to do the best for his entire unit. Not just one guy. I like Jurco believe me. 
But this team doesn't revolve around him. We need to win games. And to be honest. Our offense has been damn good lately.

Richards has been pretty useless ... Our offence has been good, nothing wrong with getting jurco going and giving us 3 good lines +helm glendening Andersson can do a good job on the 4th

Anyways the way things are going wouldn't be surprised to see jurco gone during this season or dealt in the off season... Playing on the 4th line isnt going to do anything ....+athanasiou and Callahan can be called up at anytime

Hope I'm wrong but I think his days are numbered

His first season up when we were decimated with injuries he spent the majority of his time with sheahan and Tatar, and they were a dominant third line.
They kept the opposing team hemmed in their own zone the majority of the time and they were being praised left and right, then the playoffs rolled around and babs broke them up and didn't try them back together once despite us struggling.
I was praying they'd keep those three together because the chemistry they had was unreal, and they really haven't been back together since. I don't know what's up.
I guess the best we can hope for is during the time that pulks/miller is out Jurco plays too good for them to scratch him again.

He needs to play with someone else other than glendening and Andersson

We should be trying to get him going after his ahl stint went so well rather than 2 guys with one goal who will likely be gone next year

The way the lines are now , bottom 6 I'd like to see

Helm Larkin jurco

Andersson Richards glendening

Or put jurco with countryman Tatar

Tatar Larkin jurco .... That could be a special line .... For now anyways he's on the 4th so I wouldn't be expecting much on the scoreboard

Surely you are being sarcastic.  Half a second?  We're not talking about Mitch Callahan here.  Tomas Jurco has over 100 NHL games under his belt.

How many of those were on the 4th line with grinders?? Kids got talent , how about giving him 10 games In a row with a Larkin,Tatar,nyquist,hank or pav?

We're clearly trying to make him a grinding forward on the 4th ... If this continues he will be go this yr or next, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him have a more of offensive role in another team

Ya those are two pretty long term injuries. Give jurco a good chance to prove himself

Ya prove himself on a 4th line with glendening and Andersson

I don't understand Blashill , praises jurco .... Sends him down gets 1st star of the week after dominating there , comes back and gets scratched after one game

No he gets another chance .... On the 4th line with 2 guys with no hockey skill ...don't get it

Larkin is with helm who scored his first goal on a giveaway/open net and richards who has 0 goals .... Think it's safe to say Richards won't be here next year and helm will likely be gone as well,jurco should be with Larkin next game

I understand it's the ahl, but jurco dominated there at 20-21, went back down and dominated yet again,it's not like he's some ahl veteran .... Blashill needs to give him some real linemates for 5-15 games

Sadly this is jurco's last stand

#2639931 Larkin for ...

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 28 November 2015 - 09:24 AM

Not trading larkin for anybody at this point, if hes producing the way he is now imagine in 2-3 yrs how good he can be ...he'll be one of the next wave of wings players to lead the way

He's also 19 where as some of the names I saw being mentioned like Tavares,toews etc ... Are 7-8 yrs older ... If we're lucky we got Dylan for the next 20 yrs

Somethings like ...

Jets get

Hamonic and helm (both Manitoba kids)

Redwings get

Byfuglien (ufa at seasons end)

Islanders get

Smith and morrissey

Saying top 9 to me or 6 doesn't mean anything to me if we got 3 great lines that can score at any given time makes us a threat .... Yes you can look just at numbers and say these our top 6 and be done with it but imagine having a nyquist on the 3rd line in the playoffs vs other teams bottom lines and dmen

That could be the difference in us advancing to the next round or not .... You can look at abdelkader and say he's not as skilled as the zetterbergs and datsyuks so let's put him on the 3rd but he gels well with them and does the dirty work

We have way too much skill and talent this year to just say these our top 2 lines ... We should try and find the right chemistry between guys and get 3 legitimate lines that can produce during a game at any given time instead of always depending on zetterberg and datsyuk

I'd prefer to see Kindl in over Smith, but I'm biased - I've never been a big fan of Smith.
If I'm being as objective as I can, I don't think having one play over the other will make that big of a difference. I think Kindl's done a good job getting back to break up plays, and I think Smith's provided an edge that Kindl doesn't. Both of them still make bone-headed decisions with the puck/have a difficult time getting the puck out of the defensive zone. I'm just happy DeKeyser's coming back ahead of schedule.

I think both should be gone, no long term future in Detroit anyways ... Bring up 2 of marchenko/ouellette/Jensen instead or just one and try and trade for a veteran defensemen

I'd go with option 2 but I know both are going nowhere anytime soon

I do. Through Justin Abdelkader first 126 NHL games he had 10 goals. Now he's playing a top line power forward role. Jurco is learning how to be that and I don't think he's doing a terrible job, especially considering before he got to the NHL he never had to be a power forward. It's a process. He's learning. He'll be fine. When he gets to be Abdelkaders age he will be better than Abdelkader is right now. Bank on it.

+ blashill knows him and will get the best of him ... He's 22 , can't give up on the kid after after 1 game ... He's got size, speed , hands ... Loads of skill ... Foolish to write him off now

#2630205 Janmark nylen makes the Dallas roster

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 12 October 2015 - 09:12 PM

What's realistic? Dougie Hamilton and Keith Yandle were had for scraps. Our gm doesnt know what he is doing.

Keith yandle was way overpaid and the Rangers will regret giving all that up when duclair is lighting it up for yrs with domi

Hamilton would of been nice , we wouldn't of got svechnikov though ... If it was this off season Hamilton was for the taking with the way our kids are looking upfront , Kenny would of gave up 2 firsts at the 16 draft

That being said bringing up Hamilton is pointless cause there's no way Boston would of ever traded Hamilton to a division rival

I think the "right shooting defenseman" thing has tended to get overblown over the last three years.  Nothing about being a right shooter makes a guy better, or more deserving of a roster spot.  It's a characteristic that, all things being equal, you'd like to have a balance of. 
For instance, Marchenko and Smith were a better pair last year than Smith and Zidlicky.  In one instance having a righty worked, and in the other it didn't make much difference.  If forced to choose, I would rather have seen Smith with another lefty (Ouellet?), or Zidlicky with another righty (Marchenko?), rather than those two together. 
The lefty righty thing is based on all other variables being equal. If you're trying to find a partner for a lefty, and you've got two good guys with similar skillsets, then pick a righty.  But if one guy is a mismatch in every other way, but is right handed, don't give him the spot based primarily on that. 
Just my 2 cents.

I'd take the best defensemen period

The fact that jensen is right handed is just an added bonus and helps us balance the d ... He can play and I think at 25 he's ready , don't know now much longer the guy has to wait for a shot

My own opinion is smith and kindl have no future here and he can't be worse than those 2 so bring him up now

I knewwww it had a gut feeling he was gonna make it , kids are finally getting the chances with Blashill as coach

Now if he starts racking up the points there's no way they could send him down

Ummm what if he does so good in the top line we gotta keep larkin there ? Datsyuk centers 2nd line with Gus and Tatar?, sheahan goes to wing for this year?unless we make some moves if mule stays healthy he might have to go on the 4th line ... We might have the deepest 4 lines we've had in forever

Scary team this year and laughable these experts I seen on tv in montreal all took detroit 5th place and beyond in our division

When datsyuk returns ...

Zetterberg larkin abdelkader

Tatar datsyuk nyquist

Sheahan richards pulkkinen

Helm/jurco glendening Franzen

Miller cleary anderssen ...

When pavel returns and if larkin sticks unless someone good gets hurt we might have to depart with one of helm/jurco/pulkkinen

I'd package a helm/smith or prospect /high draft pick type deal for a byfuglien if possible or someone similar ... Our d is where we clearly need an upgrade

Nice goal by jurco

Gonna surprise a lot of people this season

#2620519 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 14 July 2015 - 03:06 PM

I think unfortunetly even if mule is back it'll only be a matter of time before he takes another hit and is gone

As for the jurco article just sounds like he wants more money .... He should of hired ryan o'reillys agent ... Bit off topic here .... I knew about o'reillys cap hit but I heard on the radio today that he's making 11 million this season

I got no idea how this lets crash my car into a tim hortons ******* is getting all this money ... Most overpaid player in the league by far

And back to topic lol ... Got no doubt jurco and pulkkinen will excel this season under Blashill ... Unlike Babcock he will know jow to utilize the kids and wouldn't surprise me if they both got 15-20 goals

Just worried with all these 1 yr deals cause you know if they get good seasons they'll be asking for more cash than 1 mill per ballpark

#2620371 Mitch Callahan signed 1-year - 600k

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 13 July 2015 - 01:21 PM

I don't think his chances are "slim, to none".  Blashill loves the guy.  Called him "a player you win with".  Used him on the top line in GR.  He'll get every opportunity to break in with the big club.

Unless injuries occur I really don't see How Callahan could make the team
