#2617714 Saad traded to Columbus

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 30 June 2015 - 07:53 PM

They aren't better than the Rangers or Tampa lol

You say they don't have good center depth, then say they're not as good as the rangers, who don't have a real #1 center.

#2617657 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 30 June 2015 - 06:21 PM

Datsyuk injured, Weiss bought out, the door is open for dylark to step in and claim a spot.

Buying him out now instead of next year makes it feel like they want Larkin in the NHL now. I'm all for it.

My thoughts exactly.

And i only see glendenning moving from c if he's moved up to a scoring line, which shouldn't happen now that babs is gone.

But Ferraro will most likely be in over andersson.

Adam Marsh story


It honestly sounds like he just has add, if that's the case get him on some medication that'll even him out and most of his problems could be fixed...
I haven't found anything really terrible about him that would make me think otherwise.

Just lookit how majestic he is.

He is the hampusiest of all the melens.

Fun fact: my phone autocorrects ham to HAMPUS in all caps and autocompletes mel to Melen. Apparently I type those two things frequently...who knew?

Everyone knew.
I'm willing to bet at least a quarter of your posts this past season had his name in them.


So, signed?
"Drafted in 2013, he must be signed by Detroit by June 2015 or would re-enter the 2015 NHL Draft."

I believe he went undrafted this time.

#2617410 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 29 June 2015 - 11:38 PM

no I wouldn't complain im all for improving this team in anyway im not saying sign to sign but I still think Green or Franson is a better option than Kindl or BIG E if there is a risk to take I would try to trade Big E and  waive Kindl id sign Franson and possibly Belesky for that Forward we could use team could be like this
Z Dats Abby
Goose Shehan Tats
Beleskey  Weiss   Pulks
Miller  Glen  Jurco
Kronwall  Franson
Smith    DD
Marchenko  Q
LTIR Franzen

Beleskey turned down 4m/yr from Anaheim, I wouldn't sign him for 3.

We've had a glut of young forwards for years that never seem to be weeded out correctly and in need of Defensive help that has been met with every damn excuse in the book. Trades were too steep, market is really bare, the kids need playing time, Cleary is needed for leadership, Franzen looks to be healthy this year. Its really amazing, I wonder how many decades Holland can claim he's rebuilding and it just takes time. Actually with this ploy he's better off just keeping talent in Grand Rapids winning meaningless
games and titles there so he can claim we are only a year away. I think Babcock got it right with this idiot.

Why are you so angry?
And the only "excuse" that isn't a good one is the cleary one, and even that ones shaky since no fan knows the extent of his leadership, and he barely played last season anyway, so you're reaching for straws here.

Hahaha. Is Michael Babcock really going to be there still?!?!?


Ha. Anytime I haven't heard from you in a while, if I mention hampus, you're there.

Its like a doorbell that only you hear no matter where you are/what you're doing.

Any bets on where Larkin will start the season?...

Third line.

#2617217 Datsyuk Has Ankle Surgery

Ken Holland and blashill both keep saying they're going to give Larkin every chance to make the team, and with dats out for a while, I have a feeling hell be here when the season starts.

NHL lockouts are like the purge.

Horrible for entertainment purposes?

#2617078 #19 OA Evgeny Svechnikov

Any red wing winning the Calder next year would be a stretch with mcdavid and Eichel coming up. Maybe we should hold them back one more year so they can go for the award in 2017 :lol:

all it would take is outscoring them, so no.
I want them to win out because they scored more then Mcdavid and eichel.
It would tickle my jimmies pink.


I really do think Larkin just might make the team. If not at the start, definitely before the season is out. Sadly as far as the Calder goes, he'd have to noticeably set himself apart from McDavid and Eichel, as you know those who vote will be itching to give it to either of those two. But I'd rather see Larkin contribute come playoff time than to see him win the Calder. Something that either of the other two won't even have a shot of doing this season.  

If blashill is as high on Larkin as it seems like he is, I could see him winning a job out of camp.
He was scoring a ppg during the playoffs in grand rapids, while playing great defensive hockey.
He's got a good chance, especially if helm stays on the wing, and if Franzen can't return.

#2617067 Free agents this off season

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 28 June 2015 - 12:12 AM

he is but I could see us trying to use him there just because his hollands type ;)
no but seriously I have had my eyes on two centers that might be a good fit depending on term one is Vermette  and the other is roy I like Antoine vermette more but I guess it all depends on where we could slot him as far as d goes im  only into green or franson but its unlikely we go for green Ithink he will ask for too much plus Kenny wants the kids to come up im just afraid of what this team will look like with the same d core ......

Holland doesn't sign small old slow wingers to move them to center.
And our d will probably look the same, with Xavier oulette and/or marchenko on the team.

But it'll be alright.

#2617063 #19 OA Evgeny Svechnikov

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 27 June 2015 - 10:08 PM

That's a good video about him. He sounds like a hard worker off the ice and they talk about his good personality/personality. Put into a new situation/country/language/workload and was able to take on the challenge and do well. That says a lot to me.
Also, it's been too long since we've had an "ov" on our team!! Like the pick - I'm on board!

I am also very excited for this.
I'm thinking they're going to want to develop svech at center, all the twitter updates, and reports I seen had him listed as a center.
Which will be cool, we need another Russian center to get here soon.

#2616861 2015 Draft

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 27 June 2015 - 01:11 AM

So I must really be missing something. Svechnikov is an awesome pick at 19th overall. Big. Raw. Fast. Elite skill. And a great demeanour (watch some interviews). There should be way more partying going on here.

I drank too much.
At least I must have, because frank seems to be really reasonable today.
But I'm happy with him, I don't know what to expect from him though.
1st line winger?
Second liner?
What do you think?

Yeah their economy is bad but the khl is still owned by some otherworldly rich oil guys and they'll pay a premium for their local players. Wouldn't shock me at all if we'll never see Provornov coming over.

Trading your best defender going forward and then the heart and soul of your franchise is just wow..Boston fans are furious as they should be. Neely should be focusing on the business side I mean he is not the GM nor a scout

Lol at the Leafs passing on Hanifin Reilly, Hanifin would have been a scary top pairing now they have an undersized center and no too pairing of they decide to try trade Phaneuf

The leafs said something about not having enough skill, and mariner has it in spades as long as his body holds up.
And I'm kinda glad he fell to the canes, faulk-hanifin could be amazing together too, plus if he hits his ceiling, we won't have to play him too often.

And reading boston fans tweets/hfboards posts is bringing me such joy, there's already a hash tag to fire Sweeney...
If they went this far, why not keep trading older guys. They can't be done, they have three goalies, So I'm excited to see if they continue their downfall tomorrow.
