Anthony mantha - what are the chances he plays this year?

03 October 2014 - 03:58 PM

I'm asking this because a friend of mine asked me for advice for his hockey pool and I saw his roster and he had steve ott last year and I told him instead of taking a guy like steve ott who gets you 20-30 pts maybe chance it and take mantha with your last pick this year

So I'm asking does he play this year ? And if so how many games does he play? I'm thinking if he lights it up in the ahl when he returns maybe he'll get a chance here in January and play in the top 6?

Are the wings underrated?

29 September 2014 - 04:59 PM

I gotta say I'm kind of annoyed with people on the radio and tv overlooking the wings like they got no chance at winning the division and it's all bruins habs and tampa (although pierre McGuire did just say people will be surprised at how many good prospects they'll see that detroit has in the next few years)

I look at last year and

Weiss missed 56 games
Helm 40
Zetterberg 37
Datsyuk 37
Ericsson 34
Franzen 28
Dekeyser 17

Besides last season and the shortened season we hit 100+pts 12 years in a row (and we still hit 93pts with all those injuries last year)

I know some will say we had lidstrom , and your right but we still got a great roster and promising young players along with the best coach and maybe I'm being naive cause I'm a die hard wings fan but I think we can compete and win our division

So just wondering, are the wings underrated? Or we clearly on the decline?

Has hakan Andersson done it again ?

21 September 2014 - 12:07 AM

I went on the swedish elite league to check on janmark to see how he's doing and low and behold in the 8th spot , 2 pts away from 1st was our 7th round pick axel holmstrom that Andersson was praising about with 2 goals and 4 pts in 4 games

Now I know it's still way too early but it's very promising that an 18 yr old kid is doing this and if he keeps it going we might have something very exciting in our hands

Anyone here seen him play?

Who should get cut/traded by game 1 of the season?

12 September 2014 - 08:27 PM

First off on the back end I think ouellet should start the season,can't have ouellet and sproul or another join the team at the same time , I'd rather get in a young d(my picks ouellet)and by the time we get another in fulltime at least ouellet will have a season under his belt

Mantha- think he should play in Grand Rapids but I got a gut feeling he will start the season in detroit and if he explodes can't see us sending him back down (I assume he'd play with pavel if he starts here)

Pulkkinen - we need goal scoring and he can score so why shouldn't he be here?

I think it's Time to bring in some of the younger pieces,it's the only way well be a lot better and contend with pavel and hank still here

We should get rid of kindl and possibly lashoff and replace them with ouellet and possibly marchenko (we'd be way better defensively in the back end)

Now upfront ... Hopefully when the season starts they'll see cleary just doesn't belong anymore as well as miller and Andersson(can't see Babs choosing Andersson over glendening) Ferraro also doesnt have a future here and unfortunetly don't see any space for Callahan

I'd see something like

Zetterberg datsyuk mantha

Franzen weiss nyquist

Tatar sheahan pulkkinen/jurco

Helm glendening abdelkader

Sadly i think it'll be something more like

Zetterberg datsyuk helm

Franzen weiss nyquist

Tatar sheahan alfredsson

Abdelkader glendening miller

Sorry for rambling on guys , last thing looking ahead with all the forwards coming up I gotta say I think Tatar and pulkkinen will get dealt at some point for maybe a star d especially if mantha lights it up and we got jurco waiting (not to mention athanasiou,frk,bertuzzi,janmark etc )

Expansion draft - how many players can each team protect ?

01 September 2014 - 10:02 AM

Trying too see who we might lose if there were the 2-4 teams rumored to come in a few years

Anyone know how many we can protect ? Are the players with no movement clauses vulnerable to being moved ?
