#2615969 Looking ahead to expansion draft ... If Vegas comes to the nhl etc

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 24 June 2015 - 05:43 PM

I'd imagine we would definitely go with protecting only Mrazek in goal if they go about the expansion draft in a similar manner. Is it just unprotected main roster players that are up for draft? It would be garbage if they could poach players from junior and GR as well. I'd rather they just get thrown in with the basement dwelling teams for draft lottery day than to get a s*** at poaching other franchise's prospects.

Ya I'm pretty sure ahl players are out of the question

Yandle is a ufa in one year and if he was that great in ny they wouldn't be willing to get rid of him right away

No interest giving up mantha,1st + for one season

#2615371 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 19 June 2015 - 08:13 PM

Khan says Wings are no longer interested in Phaneuf.  I'm betting Babcock nixed any deal, like most of us believed he would.

Babcock or not I'm glad we're stepping away from Phaneuf

#2614952 2015 Draft

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 17 June 2015 - 02:35 PM

Athanasiou got a broken jaw, couldn't eat solid food for weeks, lost almost 20 lbs., AND missed more games than Mantha.  Yet he still managed to work hard every game once he returned.  Being injured might excuse the results, but not the lack of effort.
I don't see why people feel the need to constantly make excuses for the Mantha.  He was used to streamrolling weaker competition in Juniors, and he learned bad habits, and hasn't unlearned them yet.  It doesn't doom him to a career of mediocrity, but he doesn't get a free pass from criticism because he was drafted high and people like the fact that he's big. 
To date, Mantha has been soft, lazy, and moderately disappointing.

I'm pretty sure you need your legs to play hockey ? As bad as the jaw injury was you need your legs more to play hockey than your jaw ...I'm no doctor but I'm sure a leg injury could effect his your play on the ice , with a broken jaw after sometime off you put your protection and your good to go

And again don't forget mantha didn't have training camp and exhibition games so when he came back he was already not in playing shape

And he finished with a goal behind athanasiou ... Not like athanasiou blew him out of the water (nothing against athanasiou, like the kid )

Before it was mantha was just good cause he played against 17-18 yr olds and now it's he steamrolled through weaker competition in the juniors ... Well he was named one of the best players at the world junior championships against the best of the juniors , what's the excuse now?

Mantha played in the league he was in ... It was out of his control , ahl is a tougher league and he learned from it and will get better .... Why you already writing him off after a injury ridden first season?

As far as I know without checking drouin didn't light it up and he was 3rd overall and couldnt even get in the lineup during the playoffs .... What a bust

To date mantha's played 60 games ... Far to soon to be judging him ... Don't forget Tatar was in Grand Rapids for 4 years

#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

#2614932 2015 Draft

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

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 15 June 2015 - 04:08 PM


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

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 15 June 2015 - 12:36 PM

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

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

#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
