isnt wasnt garth snow it was the owner charles wang .... and howson should be fired on the spot for refusing such an offer that team could of used every single one of those picks and gotten a good prospect at 4 spot
that being said he fired his whole scouting staff after the draft
we just picked some goalie never heard of ugh ..... checking top european prospects and specfically swedes found someone that kinda interests me
17 yr old gustav rydahl 6"3 190
A big and strong playmaker with pretty good hands. Fairly good speed and two-way ability. Some leadership qualities. Impressive vision and is strong on the puck. Can initiate physical contact. (EP 2012)
sounds good , hoping he can be an andersson pick plus hes got size and sounds like he can play
Oilers' GM Steve Tambellini is NOT going to trade down. He has said that himself. And Ryan Murray's brother tweeted something about making trips to Alberta in the near future.
well i heard he might trade down if he could get something good because theyd be happy with murray or reinhart but then again maybe they told murray theyd be drafting him 1st overall already .... we'll see what happens
why are some people hating on franzen?? if he plays a full season hes a 30 goal guy , look around the league and theres not to many 30+ goal scorers these days.... and more importantly he shows up in the playoffs when it counts
hudler after last season , i was willing to get rid of him has come back this year and is on pace for like 25 goals , id say keep him but im sure he will get bigger money offers from some team , probably 4+ a season , its time to let him go and bring up nyquist and others which is why for the life of me i cant understand why the wings resigned bertuzzi , we need to get some of the kids to come up and play with some veterans while they are still here so they can learn
cleary's been hurt so im gonna take it easy on him i think he has alot more to offer than hes been giving us this season , that being said considering his salary he'd be number 1 guy id trade if we needed cap room
on a different note id love it if we made an exception and gave **** axelsson a shot next year , at least a 10 game trial and a real shot not put him on the 4th line, hes got all the offensive tools to be a real point producer and goal scorer, his defensive play isnt great but i think he could learn from z and others
franzen datsyuk nyquist
filppula zetterberg axelsson .. top 6 next year ... tatar and andersson will be up in 2013-2014 , we gotta start blending in the kids
I'd like to see him work on a line with Helm and Miller, and give Abby, Mursak, and Holmer the fourth line. I don't see Nyquist as a top six on this team. He's too unproven and I definitely don't want to see two guys in our top six weighing in below 180 lbs.
i just think he's too good to not give a real shot in the top 6 and lets face it datsyuk makes everyone better and i just think theres something potentially there that can be really special in that line , nyquist is also getting use to franzen now these last 3 games so that'll help
sit cleary or homer for him and I'd be very happy. Although Homer tries he just sucks now
its unfortunate he cant just be used for the powerplay and not waste a forward spot cause hes still the best at his job on the ppl even though we cant score now if our lives depended on it
obviously getting our players back especially datsyuk will help the team but i think nyquist could be that extra something that could help us do some magic but only and only if he gets legit ice time and linemates
Heres my thinking ... the zetterberg filppula hudler line is untouchable , i think nyquist at least for 5-6 games (depending when datsyuk returns) should be given a shot with datsyuk and franzen and see what happens i think that could be an incredible line ... not checking positions now but a bertuzzi helm mursak line sounds good just for helm and mursaks speed and playing together could cause problems , cleary abdelkader holmstrom 4th sounds good ... didnt even think of drew miller whos definetly got a spot in the lineup
anyways i just think nyquist should remain here .... thoughts???
once again holland lacks the balls to make a huge trade ( save the quincey deal comments) this was our last great chance to win the cup ....wasted opportunity ... ah well , lets hope we can win the cup
doubt it'll ever happen but this is my thought ... if and only IF we get ryan suter signed july 1st what if we trade brendan smith to flyers who are desperate for help in the back end since pronger's likely done ... for james van riemsdyk .... he's a future star in the making ,22 yrs old 6'3 power forward .... again only if ryan suter were to be signed by the wings would i consider doing this
would anyone consider doing this move? or is smith too valuable to us
i swear if we end up with samuelsson again im gonna lose it , this could be our last great chance to win the cup with lidstrom kenny's gotta get some balls for once and take a chance ! Put in a tatar or pulkkinen if need be ( depending on the guy of course)
Brown would be nice, but we would be reducing our chances of landing Parise/Suter if we commit money elsewhere.
i actually heard parise and suter wanna do like lebron and chris bosh did and package themselves to a team , man if we could pull that off we'd have also a great chance of getting weber in 2 years but we'd have to depart some salary like letting hudler go and maybe trade cleary unless he has a full no trade? that would be like 6 million right there
