#2555990 Myers close to become a wing?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 12 December 2014 - 01:48 PM

My worry is that Holland sees this year's team as a contender, and is going to try to land a high-end defender by overpaying. Generally, it's a good idea if you've got a shot at the cup. If that means one of two of the defensive prospects, then sure... but I hope he steers clear of the forwards for the most part. I haven't watched as much of the Griffins as I would have liked this season, but I've heard/seen tons of people raving about AA. To be honest, I'm more worried about moving someone like Tatar, Jurco or Mantha. I really want those wingers to stick around.

The thing is, I do think ONE of our prospect centers should be made available for the right deal. I'm not saying they should just move one for a rental, and I definitely don't think Myers is the right deal. The thing is, Sheahan has exceeded my expectations in terms of the offensive potential he's shown this season. If we've got Sheahan, Larkin and AA as potential top 6 centers, combined with the remaining years of Z, Weiss and perhaps Helm... I would be fine with moving one for a significant upgrade on the blueline. When you look at the whole picture and factor in the years of overlap with the vets and younger players, I actually think we could be in good shape up the middle.

Yea, we definitely could be...
But if larkin stays at um for lets say three years, Pavels contract will then be up.
Helms health is a concern, as is Weiss', yeah we have some prospects looking good for the future but I don't expect them to pan out as much as our current crop of kids did.
Not because I don'thave faith in the org. Just that id rather have more chances at one of them surpassing expectations.

Aa has the skill and speed to be great, I've been super high on him for awhile now, actually found lgw looking for people talking about him.


Yeah we have great depth now at c, but Pavel and z are getting up there, and id love to remain deep there in the future.

You do realize we have had the injury big all year(like some like me predicted) but it hasn't slowed us down at all in the standings(which I'm glad I was wrong about!).


But I'm pretty sure we have had a significant guy out in just about every game this year?

Dat, Franzen, Weiss, smith, Abby, Howard, now DD and others like monster and Quincey etc etc

Yeah, but last year we had most of them out at the same time, along with z.

Ya I wouldn't give up those guys but the wings do have a lot of forwards coming up and from what I read a while back buffalo was stacked on defense in there prospect system

id do something like pulkkinen athanasiou a 2016 1st for myers ... Think that's more than fair considering he's underachieving and has 5+ longterm ... Even throw in Andersson for the fun of it

And we still have mantha larkin bertuzzi natasiuk janmark frk and a few others with some potential

And of course Tatar nyquist sheahan jurco glendening for the future

And I don't know our cap space so we might have to include kindl somehow in that deal or with someone else

I wouldn't give up athanasiou.
Dudes a beast and could potentially be a top 6 center, which as you know, we are going to need.
I know you have to give to get, but I just don't think its worth it.
Myers is good

But he's not going to take us over the top.

I have this theory that you post pictures to cheer us up when we lose, and to lift our spirits higher when we win.

I do hate me some biebs.
Not as much as I hate losing to the effin leAFS AFTER DOMINATING THE DAMNN GAME!!!!!!
But.
Still.
You know.
We really did play a good game.
Minus most if the third.
Like we looked sooooo damn dominant during the second.
And like garbage in the third.
I just don't get i.t.


Some shifts we looked like we were 3rd generation skating trash monsters, born from trash eating trash that mated with other trash that was flavored with trash.


I surrrriously think they should sit a player or two and let him just watch the game..
Give em the Jurco treatment.

Is there anyone creepier looking in the NHL than Phil Kessel?  I think I'd walk on the other side of the street if I crossed paths with him.

Jimmy Howard is pretty scary lookin.
Like not horribly wrong.
Just that his eyes may be an entirely separate entity from the rest of him.

#2555202 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 10 December 2014 - 04:52 AM

How is this thread still active? Aren't the Wings sitting at 4th or 5th in the league for goals right now?
Funny how the earlier pages mention Tatar, Weiss, Franzen etc as being guys who aren't doing anything lol

TANK IT!
