#2584177 Team next season?

Posted by rick zombo on 22 March 2015 - 11:55 PM

Phaneuf is a lot overpaid and unless they change their minds they won't retain salary. They also want Mantha or Larkin, which is a deal killer.
Smith is the most likely defenseman to be moved. Dekeyser could go if a legit top pair guy not on a moronic contract is coming back. Quincey will be back then will be let go to make room for a rookie next summer.


They'd never trade Dekeyser after he chose Detroit over 29 other teams. He's Captain Michigan.


#2583985 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

I hope Babcock sticks around. I want to see Athanasiou and Mantha on the 4th line in two years and Glendenning Helm and Andersson in the top 6 playing realgud.

Blues are in “defend the 1 goal lead with 4 minutes left in the second and an entire third period to play” mode.

 

Should be a really exciting game. Christ.

SOG after the first is 10-8 Wings. Nice to play a decent period, but wish we had something on the scoreboard to show for it. Same song, different verse  post.

Disgusting.

Wings winning the special team’s battle right now. Which means they won’t get another PP until Tampa get the lead. Book it.

At least he's trying. He does look pretty good this game I must admit. I don't hate the guy, I just hate how he's so inconsistent. 

 

The whole team is inconsistent. Like, all of them. Including Mrazek.

O’Halloran the Wing hater with the soft call on Pulkinnen.

Osgood was 17 - 0 career vs Lightning in his career. Could use him in the playoffs.

Some dude on twitter just said that there are no line-up changes for Detroit tonight.

 

Also, it's Filpulla's birthday.

Look on the bright side: it makes it easier to know who to block. One touch of a button, and bingo bango bunghole this place is enjoyable again!

 

Don't tell me you blocked the "Elder Troll"? The one who tries to use seniority as a way of validating his opinion and whose main troll weapon is the eyeroll and/or calling people Crymson.

zombo, I am very laid back, I just hate the constant nit-picking over Smith's game, when he has been playing very good hockey of late. I love DeKeyser and I do think he is a better defenseman but he hasn't been sharp at all lately and you never hear anything about it, other than the subtle comment in GDT's.

 

 

 

I don't "dislike" Smith.  I just recognize what he is.  An underwhelming, third pair, defenseman with upside. 

 

He's like a less good MIchael Del Zotto. 

 

So basically Jamie McBain. 

 

I understand all of this. I just wish you two would settle this debate. We've got Trolls to battle. :lol:
