In Topic: Myers close to become a wing?

Yesterday, 08:54 PM

I don't think Yandle is "exactly" what we need. Exactly what we need would be a right handed Yandle. To me, the closest thing to that is John Carlson in Washington or Kris Letang in Pittsburgh. Are either of these guys available / affordable? I doubt it. But maybe Carlson's teammate Mike Green is. Green is playing on their third pairing, making over 6M and is a UFA after this season. I'm not sure exactly what it would cost us but being a UFA would bring down his price a little. He has 5 (2-3) points in 4 games so far this season. Another option could be Brent Burns in San Jose, who is making a little less, just under 6M, but is signed for the next 3 seasons. He has 7 (1-6) points in 6 games so far this season. I think Burns would cost a little more than Green so maybe Green is the better option. Or maybe our best option is to call up one of the kids. Either way, I do think we need to replace Kindl, but I don't think Myers should be our guy.

Lmao I thought Yandle was right handed. I do that a lot. I wanted Edler badly at the deadline the whole time thinking he was right handed

I can see Thornton getting moved early in the season. They stripped him of the C, makes way more sense to do that because you plan on moving him other then because you just want to knock your own player down a notch

In Topic: Franzen to 7-day IR

It's just Franzen saying he's not ready. Franzen is just a guy that will choose to sit every once in a while when most people would just play through it. If this was a game that mattered he would play. I'm sure there's some sort of pain but your average hockey player is playing with some sort of nagging discomfort

In Topic: Dan Rosen Pens a Great Piece on Babcock's Coaching Tree

You do whatever it takes to get him to stay. One thing that goes overlooked is babcocks development of these young guys. I don't think just any coach would have all these rookies stepping up, playing hard, smart and making an impact in such a short time and I would love to see what he can do with Mantha

I think Yandle is exactly what this team needs
