#2615716 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by F.Michael on 23 June 2015 - 09:07 AM


I know we're no longer known as being a physically "tough" team but I never want to see Bongos on this team.  I feel like his presence would inspire the rest of the guys to stop hitting all together.

He'd become our enforcer...Orpik nails Zetterberg - Semin unloads his bongos on him.

Did you guys know that Kenny Holland likes to kick tires?


#2614576 REPORT: Axel Holmstrom Signs With Detroit

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 15 June 2015 - 09:04 PM

He's a cross between Axl Rose and Tomas Holmstrom.   

Then he won't show up on time and won't get along very well with teammates.

I wonder if Anaheim would be willing to trade one of their defensemen
Tatar has to be a very attractive peice to other teams. A guy that hovers around 30 goals that's very cheap on a short deal and a RFA at the end of his deal. I think Nyquist gets a long term deal when he signs


Tatar is going nowhere.

Signing our RFAs will probably be our only move



I can see Blashill wanting to promote a few of the young Dmen from GR instead of spending big $$$ on any UFA.

My Perfect off season.....Blashill (check!)
Trade Weiss, Smith and Kindl, rights to Andersson all for more draft picks.
Sign Mike Green, Cody Franson and Carl Soderberg.
Re-Sign ALL our other RFA's.
Keep Marchenko, Sproul and Ouellet in GR for HUGE minutes.
Promote permanently Jensen, Ferraro, Callahan.
Franzen to LTIR "retirement."

You're going to be disappointed

#2613457 2015 Draft

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 07 June 2015 - 07:42 PM

Just because Mcdavid didn't say the same thing as eichel, doesn't mean he doesn't think the exact same thing.

Don't you argue against how everyone has to be politically correct all the time too?
So who cares that he's confident in himself, if he didn't think he could be the best, he wouldn't be anywhere near as good as he is.

I don't have a problem with him being confident I mean heck he would be the 1 in almost every other draft with the exception of the Crosby and maybe Stamkos one.

The problem is Eichel said he will be better than McDavid and he believes he is the best - not one of - but the best player in the draft and that's cocky..he had to the chance to redeem himself a bit by saying "I let emotions get the better of me..So sorry I know this draft is full of great players and hopefully I can become one of them for Buffalo in the future...I will as hard as I can to achieve that goal and if that draws comparisons McDavid I would be very honored "

It's a much nicer tone instead of saying flat out that he is the best. For the record I think McDavid and Eichel will be super super stars but I don't think anyone can protect who the better player will be. Maybe it was just a bad choice of words for Eichel he'll learn hopefully.

#2613260 2015 Draft

Posted by krsmith17 on 05 June 2015 - 12:32 PM

I still think we should trade up, rather than trading back. We have a ton of depth at all positions, what we lack is elite talent. We're obviously not getting anywhere near the top 5, and likely not even within the top 10. However, if Zach Werenski is still available at 12, I would give Nill a call and see if he wants to make a trade. I would offer up a package of something like our 2015 1st round pick (19th overall), 2016 2nd round pick, Xavier Ouellet for their 2015 1st round pick (12th overall).


I would then select Werenski in the 1st round and Matthew Spencer in the 2nd round.

Abby scored 20+ goals last season and you want him on the fourth line?


We gotta make room in the top six for a 20+ goal scoring power forward, who's big, gritty, and plays in the hard areas.  Once we get Abby out of there the only problem will be finding a guy like that. 

I've always liked Abby but I think there are players with more potential to put in the top 6 with Datsyuk and Zetterberg. I also think he's too good for the bottom six. Perhaps he could be good trade bait.


I'd trade half a dozen guys on this team rather than Abby.  The NHL is a man's league, and Abby plays a big boy game. 


Trade Nyquist or Pulkkinen before you trade Abby.  He's practically the only guy on our team who A) can score goals, and B) isn't a complete pantywaist. 


If anything we need more guys like him (Drew Stafford anyone?), not less.
