#2636505 Abby Signs 7-year, 29.75 mil Extension

I would be okay with 4.25M but getting close to 5M for 7 years is pretty close to being a bad deal imo. Not terrible, that's close to market value but with that term it should be lower

That would suck^^^ give him 4 and 3.5 a year

I think the defense was fine. I think on the PP leaving the one time shot to Ovie was a strategy to give Mrazek a clear look and he was prepared for it everytime. Ovie had chances on the PP and the one time shot late in the game that were the only dangerous chances. Defensively they played one of their best games imo but their is still a lot of room for improvement moving the puck up ice and offensively
Honestly Kronner was the only guy last night on the defense that I thought could have played better

Helmer is a hard working gritty guy something the Wings don't have enough of and people would let him walk ?

I'd rather bring in more players of that breed by trading guys like Pulkinnen, Jurco.

I agree I think we were really missing him until now. One of our most versatile players. The guy has games where he's the best player on the ice still. He will be invaluable to this team once we get the top 6 more balanced, depth guys like that in the bottom 6 are crucial in the playoffs

Why would you want to start an argument over two goalies that are both playing as good as anybody could have hoped for. Least of our problems

Well it probably helped we didn't attempt to guard his patented 1 timer on the PP for some reason. He must have had at least 5 of those

Yeah you can tell Feds really loved being a wing and was the best player in the world for a period of time. What's not to love

I see Kopitar is being put on this ridiculous pedestal around here. First of all he's most likely far from being available and secondly we're a better team holding on to the pieces it would take to get him. We'll get like 3 or 4 prime years out of him anyways. He's a comparable to Z in the type of player he was in his prime and Z didn't win the cup every year and couldn't win without some solid support
Trading a guy like AA would be a terrible idea at this point in his career. Most teams wouldn't put much value in him until he's proven something. There's a lot of Mantha, Larkin and Mrazek hype. These are the guys teams want. We're better off waiting for these secondary prospects to develop with us because you're way off on their value around the league

He's playing tonight

I think with guys like Marchenko and Ouellette coming through we don't need a super expensive #1 if we can beef up the forward group. Maybe if we could scoop up a guy like Wideman or another cheaper option. Z is carrying this team offensively and in the next few years we can't keep leaning on him like we are.

Kopitar is a centre. No Gm gives up all that for a rental either. Hypothetical trades bug me because nobody really has any clue what it would take and who is interested unless we get a solid rumour or statement

You can't let your man get two clean shots off in the slot especially when you're standing in position. Howard made a great save and then gave Smith the wtf look. Even smith knew he blew it. still not the reason we lost but it was a bad play by smith

I think we look much better hitting the forwards with a quick pass and skating hard through the neutral zone. We get spread out too thin when we try and hit them at their blue line and we usually just get out manned. Our speed really shows when we're skating the puck up ice


#2636039 Smith-Kronwall

Posted by joesuffP on 09 November 2015 - 10:44 AM

Green just came off injury and imo was our best dman. I can't even recall one bad play he made. As a whole I think the defense played pretty good aside from not getting any shots through
Smith was pretty much directly responsible for 1 of their 2 goals. Their wasn't much between the two teams but nobody on defense was a holy mess but if anybody was bad it was Smith

I think this team has found its legs. These losses feel much better then they did a couple weeks ago. Once we we get some guys back and hopefully stay healthy we win a game like this

Well, maybe its time to sit him and let AA stay up for a bit.


Yeah I'd just give up on Pulkinnen. He may have some NHL potential around the league but I don't see what we could gain from a small one dimensional player. It's exactly what we have too many of that are much better.
