#2422598 Wings looking to trade before using buyouts

Posted by FlashyG on 27 June 2013 - 12:35 AM

 

There's no reason to buy him out when he could just be stashed in the minors.

 

With Jarnkrok, Sheahan and Ferraro already there, they might prefer to just let Emmerton go rather than pushing far more promising prospects down the depth chart.



That, and he's our 4th line center.

 

he was our 4th line center if Helm comes back he's 5th and highly unlikely to be re-signed.

I made these avatars for the Wings fans here and on HFboards, our system is constantly labelled as overrated there, often by people like Centcougar, that spawned the slogan.

 

Feel free to use them if you like or if you'd like a custom one post the picture and the slogan you'd like and I'll get it to you as soon as possible.

#2422487 17yr old hockey player charged for on-ice assault.

Posted by FlashyG on 26 June 2013 - 04:22 PM

School of thought #1 is utterly idiotic.

 

Committing an unsportsmanlike penalty doesn't warrant what happened to that kid. He also didn't "not defend himself" he was never given any opportunity to.

 

Its not like the guy came up and challenged him to a fight, he threw a crosscheck to the side of the head of a defenceless player, then proceeded to give him a beating while he was already likely concussed. The guy was likely angry that his team was getting smoked and he was looking to exact some revenge from the first player who stepped out of line.

 

I think the charge was absolutely warranted and I don't think the league gave him even close to a sufficient punishment. That the Woodstock player was suspended at all is a joke, but I wouldn't be upset if the Brantford player was given a permanent ban from minor hockey.

 

There is no room in the game for that kind of cowardly garbage.




#2422285 Howard a top 6-8 goalie?

Posted by FlashyG on 25 June 2013 - 06:27 PM

Howard is not top ten, hes top 15, but he's not top 6-8 for sure.

 

I can only think of a handful who are definitely ahead of him. I think he's solidly among a group of goalies who could be ranked anywhere from 5 - 15.

 

Personally I'd rank him around 9th or 10th.




#2422279 Howard a top 6-8 goalie?

Posted by FlashyG on 25 June 2013 - 06:01 PM

Holland as much as said the other day that Mrazek will be in Grand Rapids until his waiver exemptions are gone. That is 3 years from now, he'd rather him playing 60 games in Grand Rapids than playing 20 in Detroit.

 

I'm not sure why you think Howard has Far exceeded expectations he was the 3rd goalie drafted during his draft year behind only Marc Andre Fleury and Corey Crawford.

 

Mrazek had 12 goalies drafted before he was selected in the 5th round.

 

If anything Mrazek is the one who has thus far exceeded expectations.




#2422179 Wings looking to trade before using buyouts

Posted by FlashyG on 25 June 2013 - 12:35 PM

Good thinking, if we kept Tootoo how could we possibly resign our best asset Dan Cleary....What af****** joke we are still in contract talks with this scrub, he must be offering us money.

 

I'm not a big fan of bringing Cleary back either and I actually like Tootoo, but if we're comparing the 2 players Cleary is a far bigger asset to the team than Jordin.

 

As bad as Cleary was in the regular season he was one of our best players in the playoffs. I don't want him back if its at the expense of someone like Tatar, Nyquist or Brunner but if its only on a 1 year deal and as a bottom 6 forward I can live with Cleary coming back.




#2421092 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by FlashyG on 20 June 2013 - 06:00 PM

How many years in a row does Emmerton have to play in almost all of our games before uou realize he's a starter?

 

Just because you were a starter doesn't mean you always will be. He would have been the 4th line center this season with Andersson in Grand Rapids. When Helm couldn't go Andersson was brought in and he quickly passed Emmerton on the depth chart (as evidenced by his time on ice vs Emmerton's).

 

When Helm is back he'll either be the 3rd line center or the 4th line center, with Andersson taking the other spot.

 

I know you like Emmerton but he's the odd guy out at center, playing only when Helm or Andersson go down. He may even be waived if they need a roster spot as he's the most expendable forward we have.

#2419399 Streit traded to Philly..? Buyouts?

Posted by FlashyG on 12 June 2013 - 01:06 PM

The Wings could potentially trade for someone's rights, but short of that I wouldn't hold my breathe on a FA signing.

 

The team is trying to re-sign, Brunner, Cleary and Miller and then has a bunch of RFA's to deal with. Without shipping some salary out there isn't really any cap space for any Free Agents.
