I think helm is under utilized on the 4th line. He can haul the piano better than Abby with his incredible speed. I like that babs is trying new things and I got no problem with helm playing with Z and D. Very defensively sound and helm's speed will create a ton of space

On that note sounds fantastic on paper but very crucial to stay healthy!


#2533571 Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

Posted by joesuffP on 02 August 2014 - 08:37 PM

I'd rather have two Kronwalls than 1 Subban. I think balance is going to be our key to success in the future. If our defense prospects hit their potential we won't have a Subban or karlsson but we'll be able to ice a much better defensive lineup than those teams


#2533450 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by joesuffP on 01 August 2014 - 11:00 AM

Getting really excited for the season to begin. We had so much up in the air last season. Nobody really knew where we stood with the veterans and youngsters. Now we're set. Hard to believe these guys were rookies just last year and now they're big time impact players

Maybe, just maybe. The policy of over ripening works


#2533334 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by joesuffP on 29 July 2014 - 11:44 PM

Got to think with the kids starting to mature that the power play will improve. Having a capable power play nets us like 35+ extra goals at least a year. Tatar, Sheahan and Jurco's numbers can only go up at this point ( assuming they stay relatively healthy)

The team has to stress the importance of having a consistent power play. It was one of our major causes for losing games last year.

I would lock DD up for 5+ years with a deal that will most likely be a steal in the last couple years


#2532040 Favorite Dan Cleary Moment or Play

Posted by joesuffP on 14 July 2014 - 03:03 PM

When he smashed phaneuf and scored right after in the playoffs.


#2531867 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by joesuffP on 12 July 2014 - 06:00 PM

It would be very unwise to trade Jurco. He's the only top six potential guy with size. I'm sure holland wouldn't trade him for that reason


#2529635 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by joesuffP on 02 July 2014 - 08:41 PM

The guy has won at all levels. An NHL rookie playing for Sweden in the gold medal game. A big part of Calder cup win. 28 goals in his shortened rookie season. All in a matter of two years. This guy could be a special player in the league. If he was bigger everyone would be all over him and think he's going to be a superstar. I'll be happy with him continuing to prove ppl wrong and fly under the radar. Much like this Datsyuk fella


#2529631 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by joesuffP on 02 July 2014 - 08:36 PM

Young players are going to be inconsistent. But having a guy that can step into the league in his first year and nearly score 30 is something special. Nyquist looked good as well the goals weren't flukes he's playing the game the right way. If he can get stronger and smarter then he can be a consistent 25 goal scorer. Not every elite team has a consistent 40-45 goal scorer


#2529585 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by joesuffP on 02 July 2014 - 06:13 PM

Why can't Nyquist, under a whole season (if healthy) score 20-25 goals? Our entire rookie 3rd line should at least match their last year totals.
Where are we exactly losing production? Even if we have a freak injury plagued season the totals should be matched. Without going through 25 games with Cleary, Bertuzzi and Samuelsson taking up roster spots from our most productive players
The fat is trimmed offensively. We may be a bit too lean sometimes but it looks a lot nicer then opening day last year


#2529574 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by joesuffP on 02 July 2014 - 05:08 PM

We are retooling. Nobody in management expects to win the cup with this roster but they will go out and try to win. Getting the #5 seed is not a huge stretch


#2529553 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by joesuffP on 02 July 2014 - 04:01 PM

Tank it would mean trading Datsyuk. This roster can finish a 5th seed as is


#2529283 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by joesuffP on 02 July 2014 - 02:07 AM

Can't compare teams that have a bunch of top 5 draft picks. We just had our highest since 91. We never started with guys like Kane, Toews and Doughty. Things were way rougher for them before there success as well. If we can get back to elite without becoming a bottom feeder then Holland is a genius


#2529240 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2014 - 11:04 PM

Wait until we stockpile enough talent that are truly expendable to our team to make a trade. Tatar is the only guy with value I can see us being okay with losing (just because we have a better, more well rounded small forward)


#2529236 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by joesuffP on 01 July 2014 - 10:52 PM

Quincey>Lashoff, Kindl

Cap hit is pretty much irrelevant since nobody wants our money. 2 years kind of stings. He had us by the balls but this deal hardly holds us back from improving
