#2636630 Abby Signs 7-year, 29.75 mil Extension

Posted by Vladinator16 on 12 November 2015 - 02:44 PM

To me this is the difference between a contending teams signing and a pretending team signing, this is a Kenny Holland Pretender move. This is Kenny looking at the team and saying everything is fine here is a 7 year deal we'll continue to do the same thing we've done for the last 5-6 years. 

 

A contending team GM would have seen Abbys agent asking for 7 years and laughed the agent out of the building, a contending team doesn't lockup bottom 6 players to unmovable 7 year contracts. Look at a team like Chicago and how they have stayed competitive and won 3 cups, they trade away and let players like Byfuglien, Saad, Sharp, Ladd, Niemi, and countless others go from the team in order to keep things changing and keep a team competitive. They don't lock players down to long term deals unless they are true centerpiece superstar players. Chicago realizes that the players they have can be replaced and still be competitive. Kenny Holland doesn't know how to do that anymore. Do you think if Abby played for Chicago they would give him a 7 year $4M dollar extension? No, no they wouldn't. Because they know that Abby isn't the type of player that will take the team to the Finals. Kenny doesn't look at this team like that though, he doesn't see that this team needs help. All Kenny sees is that Abby is a home grown talent and should be rewarded for his loyalty just like several past players he's resigned out of loyalty. Loyalty doesn't win Cups, heck loyalty doesn't even get you past the first round but Kenny doesn't see it that way. 

 

This team has not made it past the first round in years and what's kenny doing about it? He's signing guys like Abby to 7 year extensions. Signing Abs to 7 years isn't going to make this team go past the first round, all Kenny is doing is resigning everybody and keeping the team exactly the same and setting us up for the exact same first round exit that we've become accustomed to. 

 

At some point Kenny is going to have to realize he's going to have to drop the loyalty crap and actually try to better the team, not keep it the same year after year minus one or two new guys making the lineup. At some point Kenny needs to realize this isn't working and make some wholesale changes but that would go against everything Kenny believes in. Whens the last time we traded a roster player? Eaves? Does Kenny even try to better the team or is he just content with this roster and its first round exits?

I'm seeing shades of a David Clarkson type signing here with Abs.

#2635089 Connor McDavid injured, out "long-term"

Posted by Vladinator16 on 04 November 2015 - 12:01 AM

If somebody has the video feel free to post it. 

 

Hate to see the kid go down so early in his career, hope it isn't serious but did not look good at all. 

 

On the plus side if he is out any long period of time this helps Larkin in the Calder race... and Edmonton in the 1st overall pick race. 




#2634876 Byfuglien - What would he cost?

Posted by Vladinator16 on 03 November 2015 - 07:09 PM

I don't care what it would cost, with how soft this team is I would kill for somebody like this on the team:

Posted by Vladinator16 on 23 October 2015 - 10:49 PM

Is that why Kenny always wanted 3 on 3? So we don't have to lose in the shoot out any more when we just lose in the OT period now?

 

Deserved that loss, quit playing after the first but at least its a point.

We finally get Ericsson off the first pairing and Green goes and gets hurt to put him right back on it. 

 

Dammit Green.

pulk has 3 goals in 5 games not bad jurco i agree

 

Pulkkinens goals have been far from highlight reel goals and when he's not scoring he does absolutely nothing. He has no defensive two way play skill at all, if he doesn't have the puck on his stick in a scoring area he's absolutely useless.

Those lines don't look right.

 

Did we get rid of Yellow Mustard, Big Poppa, Bandit, Billy the Kid, Boogeyman, Hot Topic, Heebie Jeebies, Dances with Wolves, and My little pony?




#2630838 MLSE signs sponsorship deal with Draftkings

Posted by Vladinator16 on 14 October 2015 - 08:59 PM

It's fun if you play small amounts. On Friday night i almost won thousands on a $5 bet in Fanduel. Only ended up with $50 though. I had Z Abby and Larkin FWIW. I almost always just do 2 dollar games too.

 

The reason it's legal I guess is because it's considered "skill" while betting on sports in general is "luck", That's how they won the case back in like 06' or something.

 

 

I've bee running with the Z Abby Larkin line too, up about $75 this season through fanduel (haven't won crap on DK). 

 

Last year I hit 1st in a $2 Fanduel game winning $1400! Schneider came through with the Shutout for me and moved up a lot higher on my list of favorite hockey players that night lol.
