:clap:  Mrazek with another 2 goal or less game! That's 9 goals in his last 8 starts! That's hockey there! :goalie:

when he does finish, it's truly something to see.


I'd say its as if witnessing a miracle!  :hehe:

I am not sure his trade value can get any lower can it?  At least he still has time to turn his game around a bit to finish the season stronger. If he can, then maybe his value would increase a bit, but right now, it seems about as low as it has been his entire career...

Kenny should sign this guy! :hehe:

#2649879 ROY according to LGW

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 January 2016 - 09:51 AM

Whats funny is, the guy only has 14 more points that Larkin, it's not like he is blowing Larkin out of the water in that catagory. Will he slow down, maybe not, but Larkin could go on a spree like he did to start the year and close that gap a bit...but everyone is talking that Panarin is "so far" ahead of Larkin, when in fact, 14 points is NOT unsurpassable. The fact that he was chosen to go to the All-Star Game speaks volumes of how he is viewed in the NHL, plus the fact that he is a 19 yo pure rookie, leading his team in points and the +/- speaks volumes too. I know the +/- stat is not the best stat, but since Panarin is only a +8 and Kane is +23, shows me that Panarin isn't on the ice in all the important situations as Kane and, in our case, Larkin is.


I am very bias and want him to win, but in reality he does have a strong case for actually winning it....that being said, so did Yzerman over Barrasso, Fedorov over Belfour and Zetterberg over Jackman...


One other thing we may be missing, what is the amount of games needed to be played by a goalie to qualify for having a rookie season, last year Mrazek played in 29 games, started 26. If he didn't qualify as a rookie last season, he could be up for it this season, right now he sits at .932 SV% and 2.03 GAA...3rd and 5th in the NHL repsectively. If not ROY then serious Vezina talk if he continues this pace...

I don't think its bias picking Larkin, he is tied for the goal scoring lead, leads in +/- and really isn't that far behind in points.  If Larkin had a player like Kane to pass the puck to, then it would look different in the points department. It's going to be close, but I am used to Detroit being screwed by the NHL when it comes to ROY....Yzerman, Fedorov and Zetterberg come to mind...so it'll be Kane. Oh, I mean Panera Bread.

We need more rumors! This place is turning into a Drouin vs. Yzerman thread!


Come on Kenny, give us something to talk about!!!

Maybe a little Shatty swap prior to the game? :lol:



Lets Go Wings!



BTW, if those are current line, YAYAYA for Helm going back to the 4th.  I am not making fun of him either, he and Glenny together are a pretty deadly checking unit. I like Helm on the 4th all day long.

The problem is with your opinion. Not Stamkos. He is improving. But since all you are looking at is goals, you dont see it.


indeed, but we need offense.  If we were to give up the mega deal to get him, it wouldn't be for the Selke Stamkos, we have Selke Z and Selke Dats and Checker Glendening...we need Hart Stamkos.  That is why if he is chosing to make his all around game better and focus less on O, and good for him, but we shouldn't give up the proposed ante for him....I like him, but only if he comes with 40+ goals, 100 points and a Hart Trophy attached, especially at $10M+...and espicailly at the price of 3 YOUNG NHL roster players, a 1st rnd pick and our top prospect...

Ericsson/Sproul is equally laughable as Ericsson/Kindl. Helm/3rd for Ladd is even more so. It's ok that you don't know that, but when you parade around these forums like some kind of roster management guru you open yourself up to some critisism.


So, you're saying that Sproul has equal value as Kindl? Helm is the almighty top 6 piano puller, why wouldn't he have value to someone, plus, WPG is closer to HOME for him, they may want him there.  Maybe they'd like what Helm brings compared to Ladd. It doesn't matter. It wasn't K/E for Byf. like you "boomed" it was. 


Listen, you were caught with your hand in the cookie jar with no cookies to be had, stop trying to make something up just to save grace....nobody PARADES around the forum's pretending to be a ROSTOR MANAGMENT GURU. I have been arouond a long time and have no problem taking critisism, negative or positive. But make it have some substance, don't laugh at an E/K proposal as a LOL proposal, when there was never a proposal to begin with. Then when you are proven to just be trolling around, you take another proposal (that may or may not be a fair one) and say "well, I meant this is just as bad...you know nothing..." Comment on WHAT I WROTE and I have no problem with it, make s*** up and then there's issues...next you'll be saying I never put Jensen on any roster proposals! :ninja:  Just drop it, get back to topic and comment on things that are said in text. Stop trying to bait users...

FWIW, I am not too happy with Marchenko sitting....I know Smith has done well for himself recently, but some movement needs to happen, deadline deals should include one of E, Smith or Q in my book.  Marchy is too good to be the #7 guy...Throw Q to a buyer for a pick or package E or Smith for a nice return. I'd prefer to keep Smith over E...Either way, in order to not have to waive XO, Sroul or Jensen, we need to get rid of TWO guys before next season....the Q experiment hopefully is over, but somehow I doubt it.  Kenny will probably re-sign him and risk the three kids to waivers, most likely losing all three for nothing...

Posted by LeftWinger on 18 January 2016 - 03:30 PM

Why does this guy have ZERO nasty? He gets punched in the face, and just stands there like nothing happened. This guy is ripped and heavy. Why does he not want to wreck opponents who jerk around with us?? It's so frustrating. This LINESMAN has more nads than Rig.


6 yrs. $25.5M with a NTC....

We could really use both, but the problem is, we need a top 3 guy and a top 2 guy, it would be pointless to get anything less and that will be damned expensive in assets AND in cap hit. We may have to settle for just one or the other, or just some tire kicking and get neither...
