I think they should throw money on the bench before every game, and into the stands while Chris ilitch flexes in a muscle shirt.
Just give him five at five.
Get it done.
He's doing more on the bench than Weiss is.
(Ba dum tsss) Yes, give him more than he's asking for, and ilitch would be at center ice, to clear up any confusion on location.
Really? He had a down year last year (still scored 30 pts), but other than that he's always been pretty darn good. He's big, nasty, and produces in the O-zone. I think he'd be a major asset on any team in this league. He'd easily become the number 1 D-man in SJ right away IMO. Vlasic is smart in the D-zone, but wayyyy less physical and produces a whole lot less in the O-zone.
So I just don't like him then.
I haven't watched enough of him to say the things Ive seen that I dislike about him are constant or even consistent things, but every physical play I've seen from him is either dirty or puts him out of position.
But sj does need a shakeup, I just don't think trading jumbo is smart, smarter than trading couture, burns, or hertl.
But he's big skilled and physical, and even though he's older, I wouldn't give up his playmakin abilities for a few extra years.
I wish franzen was an iron man, but he's 34.
Part of what will make us successful this season is going to be making sure our players stay healthy long term.
And I'd they have some concerns about him right now, its a perfect time to give him some time, that way down the road when we need him he's not at 60% and hurting more than he's helping.
Not to mention if we stay healthy were going to have to wave someone to be roster compliant, this is a good time to see with dats coming if Jurco going to find his scoring touch, or if he needs to be the first call up.
I don't want to lose nestrasil for nothing.
*This statement is my opinion. You may have your own, to which you are entitled, but this thread is about Dom. Perhaps there will be a goalie thread someday in which we can discuss other goalies. This would be lovely as there have been other good ones around Dom's level.
in his prime, I don't think there were any around his level.
No chace Mike Illitch is selling the team while his son is taking over day to day operations of Olympia Ent. Think about this; Illitch is known for being a loyalty/family man. You really think he'd sell the team out from under his own son? That would be a huge slap in the face. I would possibly believe it somewhat if it said Chris Illitch were to be selling the team. I doubt that to be the case as well. If he did that it would be removing a large part of the legacy the Illitchs have provided for Detroit and the family is much to intrenched in the city for something like that to occur.
And right after ground breaking on the new arena, and "district Detroit," there's no way.
