#2684707 Patrick Roy steps down as Head Coach and VP of Hockey Operations

I'll remember Roy for 3 reasons...11 goals, getting his ass kicked, 7 goals.

Having a motivated Nielsen and Vanek has got to be better than an unmotivated Datsyuk. I wish we were giving AA 3rd line minutes though...

Could you imagine this D with both Fowler and Trouba on it for the rest of their careers? Add to that DD and Marchenko? Our D will be set for the next 15 years!

I cant believe I am saying this to you lol! But, why not move Helm down to the 4th line, take out Miller or Ott, and then bring in Mantha?


:lol: I actually thought the speed of both AA and Helm would be deadly...go figure!

Hey, can't do anything about it now, but I'd still like to see the side by side comparison in order to know that we got a good deal. First Jarnkrok, now Gagner, Helm's salary, even if it was only $3M has to be justified by corsi and analytics and advanced something or other...right?

Don't know how to read it, but the blocks look very similar. Helm should be making no more than $700K. Good job kenny.

Right now, I would give all of Nyquist, Jurco, Pulkkinen, Sproul, pick for a legit top defenseman if that's what it would take.

As soon as you start your response with "stupid post" you lose all credibility and nobody really cares what you have to say.
 
Call me any name in the book in response, I really dont care. I'm not going to engage. All I have to say is that if you want to have logical/rational discussion with posters, dont post like an angry 12 year old. If you are trying to troll, then have fun.

 
I thought I read this morning that you were going to stop referencing Helm in every thread?
Just because you dont say his, doesnt mean we don't all know who you are talking about lol.
 


Howard's 5 year deal....but you're right about the other guy too.


#2684070 Mrazek avoids arbitration... signs 2 year deal

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 July 2016 - 03:04 PM

everyone being too positive...so ill be the first overpaid. guy fell apart mid season. who knows if he'll ever recover


At least it's only 2 years. He'll either earn more or not. Not like it's 5 years when he's already declining.

Somewhere in Russia, 30 hours away from his daughter, Datsyuk is :hysterical: right now saying, see, THIS is why I wanted out! Mike Babcock concurs... too long and too lucrative of contracts for mediocre to trending downwards replaceable players.

I do like DD and Petr signings. Hopefully we'll like DD'S in 3 years still...

Nielsen and Vanek are here to play. They are legit top 6 guys who can and will make our team better and harder to beat. Hopefully when Mrazek gets his contract he finds a way to rekindle that vezina couple of months. If Holland manages to upgrade our D, this team will be better than last year. I'd also love to see AA and Mantha play, but they aren't 4th liners and there really isn't any room in the top 9 for them bArring a trade of one or two forwards from the nhl roster...

Helm at $3M, bottom 6, fine. What he got, the way he was attempted to be used last season, waste. Can't do anything about the money now, but if he gets top 6 minutes, I cannot guarantee I won't flip out. But, we'll see what happens. For the better of the team, I hope he has a career year!


#2683827 Fixing this mess....

Posted by LeftWinger on 25 July 2016 - 12:59 PM

Glenny should and is 4th line. Z should be 3rd line winger, Miller should be 13th forward.

There are other ways to make your team better, don't suppress more deserving kids by signing players that bring less to the table.

If Helm wasn't paid $4M there would be more money available to offer Mrazek. Period, simple. That signing directly affected this negotiation. But hey, we sure got a fast 4th liner who will get top minutes because he gets top 6 money for 13th forward stats. Screw the future, we have Darren f****** Helm! That's the Juckf****** pott right there!

Screw AA, screw Mantha, screw Jurco and Pulkkinen, f*** our future for Helm! Oh and Howard can always be our #1. Darren and Jimmy, plan the parade!

No question he would be our best player, but he's not worth anywhere close to Larkin plus top prospects / picks...

Yup, if we didn't sign Helm to that s***ty contract, all 4 of Jurco, Pulkkinen, Athanasiou and Mantha would be in the lineup. Damn Helm for taking up 4 roster spots...
 
The Helm signing is not going to affect Mrazek or DeKeyser's contract in any way. But hey, keep trying to spin everything with your absurd Helm hate... 

:hysterical:

Nyquist was a wasted signing and Helm is too! That's $9M and two roster spots that can help our future...but hey, let's settle for bad to mediocre.
