#2531156 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by MasterPavel on 10 July 2014 - 04:22 PM

Babs probably wanted Cleary. I just don't get it. If you want him around the locker room for leadership give him some bull s*** job. This is exactly why top free agents don't want to play for the wings anymore.




#2528586 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by MasterPavel on 01 July 2014 - 04:01 PM

Blah. I'm pissed. Literally, no one wants to sign here. I bet you Holland did offer him the same amount but he didn't want to come here. Can't keep blaming Holland. We're not a destination anymore. 


That is a perfect reason to blame him. Why aren't we a destination anymore? Probably falls on the GM not making the team a legit contender since 2010 right?


#2526995 Wings "in the mix" for Iginla

Posted by MasterPavel on 29 June 2014 - 04:46 PM

I wouldn't mind Iginla in a Wings uniform but I think he is starting to get too old. Maybe 3 years ago I would have wanted him. #TooOld


He has two good years left at a minimum.

That is a terrible idea. So we would give up a 30 goal scorer that without we wouldn't have been in the playoffs. Plus a potential 30 goal scoring power forward for a guy who most people project as a borderline 1, strong 2 dman. Ekblad is no Doughty or Weber...

Offer them our first Nyquist and Jurco Ekblads potential is sky high him at Dekeyser at the blueline would be an unbelievable pairing for more than a decade

If I was placing a bet, it is 50-50 if we trade the 1st round pick this. I would not be surprised to see the 1st, and a couple of players get moved to pick up a top pair RHed Dman, something we need now, not 2-3 years from now. If we keep the pick, I still can't see a better option at 15 than Tuch. Still makes the most sense.


We definitely could use more big guys with skill. I still really like Perlini if he is available at 15.

When is Vladislav Kamenev expected to go?

I would imagine sometime mid way throughout the second or sooner.

That Nick Ritchie guy could be an upcoming powerforward already 6-3, 218 lbs and ranks at 15.

If he is available I would love it. One of Ritchie, Perlini, or Tuch should be available. If this series taught us anything it is that we need to get bigger and more physical. Doing so without losing skill, and those three guys accomplish that. The only way I would consider passing on them is if McCann or Barbashev are still available, and we cab trade down a few spots to acquire a 2nd.


#2499420 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by MasterPavel on 22 March 2014 - 10:16 PM

Interestingly enough Nyquist only played 10 minutes tonight. Weird use of our best scorer.


Let me start off by saying Babs is a great coach, and down the stretch the last two years has been nothing short of amazing. However some of his line combinations, and the amount of time certain players get is mind boggling to me.

Ehlers, Vrana, and Kapenan are falling into the mid first round according to a few mocks/ranking sites. Virtanen is rising a bit and may not be available around 15. Rich's guy Tuch is maintaining his 20th overall, but if he keeps up his offensive development I expect him to rise closer to June. ISS already has him climbing. This year's draft looks short on quality centers, so I would pray Jarnkrok develops offensively, and continue to address future scoring on the wing.


#2477174 Turning point!?!?!

Posted by MasterPavel on 25 January 2014 - 09:03 PM

Make the playoffs and then ice the best lineup possible.  I personally believe that with a 2nd line of Jurco-Sheahan-Tatar, we can win a Cup as long as the bottom 6 has no Cleary, Tuzzi, Sammy.any of those guys.  Come playoffs, I don't care if Weiss is our 4th line C, put him there if other guys are playing their way up.


I think we will see a different Weiss when he comes back.


#2477021 So when would you make a move and what type?

Posted by MasterPavel on 25 January 2014 - 09:28 AM

Weber's hit isn't 14, it's 7.87. I'd take him in a second for that. Mantha, Jurco, Nyquist, or Tatar+Kindl+D prospect. A top 4 of Kronwall, Weber, Ericsson, and Dekeyser would be one of, I'd not the best, d units in the NHL.


Mantha, Jurco, Nyquist for Weber would castrate our offense in the future. Plus how would you fit it under the cap? They would have to take an overpaid vet as well to offset the hit for this year. I don't see us as a player for Weber if he is available. Now a stay at home dman, and a center like O'Reilly would be interesting...


#2473078 Andreas Athanasiou

He will be with the griffs next year along with Mantha.

I hope Big E, Bert, or Smitty runs that dirtbag the first opportunity on Sunday.


#2459067 Shea Weber leaves game with Injury

Posted by MasterPavel on 28 November 2013 - 10:26 PM

I never wish something like this upon any person. I hope nothing serious or long term comes of this. That being said, I still haven't forgave him over the way he slammed Z's face into the boards.

Jimmy should try to stay in the crease since that is where the goal is. Here is to 5 more years!

I'm glad babs wanted to sit Tatar
