#2522559 McGuire to Pens as GM?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 02 June 2014 - 07:03 PM

didn't even know he was interested. Given how professional he is on the air, I could have sworn he was a wings fan or something. I would never have taken him for a pens or hawks fan..

Not that I wouldn't like to see us get a little bigger, stronger, tougher, more truculent up front. But I'd rather go for Tom Wilson.


I've noticed you say something then you quote your own post a lot, do you have multiple personalities? 😄

From the bottom of my heart, I truly would love to see Chicago hoist the cup of tears tonight, having said that LETS GO KINGS!!!

I'm pretty sure it's because he was mean to Stevie.

Or something.


I'd boo him too for that reason

Yes I'm on the Geaux Habs Geaux page and you're somewhere in the table of contents trying to figure out why you're rooting for the wrong team.

I mean why would you want Jay Baruchel to be sad he's Canada's sweetheart I just don't understand you



You know how to cut to the core of me Baxter

#2521679 Mantha named CHL player of the year

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 May 2014 - 11:31 PM

Right.

If the Wings sign a decent forward, Jurco will most likely be in GR along with Pulkkinen. So Mantha wont even have to be "the guy" there...to bad Kenny traded our only decent playmaking center down there. Athaniasiou, i thino, is gonna surprise alot of people in GR too.

 

can we honestly drop the Jarnkrok stuff in every thread already? he was never going to make the team, it's that simple. As far as mantha goes, the guys he will be playing with will be far and away better then what he had




#2521625 Dan Boyle not coming back to the Sharks

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 May 2014 - 10:59 AM

Justin Bourne wrote a piece a little while back about the importance of having a cornerstone defenseman. He listed each team's #1 defenseman and divided the teams according to how they (the teams) ultimately fared this season. The point he was making is that the remaining playoff teams generally boast better #1s than the teams that have been eliminated, and the teams that have been eliminated generally boast better #1s than the teams that didn't make the playoffs. But what really struck me is that virtually none of the league's #1s are shutdown types. These days (maybe like always), a Truly Elite Defenseman is, basically, a two-way monster. He can defend, but maybe more importantly, he moves the puck exceptionally well and puts up lots-o-points. He drives possession, offense. He runs the power play...
 
I'm not saying Dan Boyle is one of the true elites. But he's a lot closer than a Luke Schenn. With Kronwall being excellent (though, not elite) in his own right, we don't necessarily need a true elite. We just need a guy who has that kind of ability. A guy like...Dan Boyle. After two years of Boyle, Smith would, hopefully, be a big producer, and Sproul (who I think has the potential to be a #1 in this league) would be ready to play big minutes. And even if Boyle gets hurt or seriously falters, well, that's an opportunity for one of the kids. So, to me, it's a win-win.


And we don't have to trade to get him


#2521569 Dan Boyle not coming back to the Sharks

Posted by Euro_Twins on 23 May 2014 - 08:20 PM

I'd love to have Boyle.  Under-valued for his current expectation because of his recent struggles, but a champion is inside.


He would redeem himself in Detroit. I'd love to have him

Vanek is playing on the 4th line because he's been bad. You know, like so many people want Babcock to do to the goat du jour here.

#2521315 Regner: Next year could be Babcock's last

Posted by Euro_Twins on 21 May 2014 - 09:40 AM

I'm sure everything Babcock said was true -- he likes his life, he likes the team, the grass isn't always greener, etc. But that doesn't mean he is not going to listen to other offers if and when he gets to free agency. Someone comes in and offers $10M/season, you could buy a fancy hunting lodge and a big cottage on a lake for that. This talk will end only if/when MB signs a new contract -- until then he will be fans'/media's darling candidate for every good coaching job in hockey.



Babcock makes $2m/year which is tops in the league. Not even gms make more than that. The fact is babs won't be leaving for more money, maybe for a new opportunity but no gm is offering a coach $3m/year, let alone 10
