I didn't see a thread for this years tournament, so I thought I'd make one for all WJ talk.
So far Canada beat Germany 6-2. Mantha had the Hattie and Patterson got the win in goal.
Right now USA is up 2-0 on Czech Republic. I am intrigued by Hudson Fasching, whom I hoped the Wings would have snagged up, but they didn't take him. Instead opted for Pope. Also Steve Santini who the Wingd missed out on.
Always routing for USA, but will be fun watching all our prospects and future NHL stars!
Would you trade for him if he were on the block, and what do you think it would take?
Would you try to pick him up if he got bought out?
I only made this thread to not derail the Hossa thread. I haven't heard anything about him being vought out or traded, but they are in a bit of a pickle with very little payers signed... I will quote what I wrote in the Hossa thread and you guys can comment from there:
What would you give up for Kovalchuk? You mentioned the impending retirement of Broduer, they could bite at Mrazek too... (not straight up of course...)
In all honesty, they do need some cap relief...they only have 6 forwards and 6 defensemen signed with $26M in Capspace....$26M sounds like a lot, but it could disappear quickly when you have to sign 8 forwards and a D...that is an average $2.8M per player, and it todays market, that is a lot of average to below average players or tons of prospects!
This guy indeed had prior chemistry with Dastyuk and at $6.6M cap hit, he is not too expensive considering the market...plus if he got bought out, he would be even cheaper...
Ok all you video makers! It's time for a video highlighting this season! I unfortunately do not have the skills or the video highlights of this season to make this. I found this vid of just a photo of a Phoenix reborn from the fire and an awesome song that would be perfect for pics and vids highlighting our kids...Brunner, Nyquist, Dekeyer, Andersson...along with, of course, Hank, Pav, JImmy....right in the comments of this video the guy says this can be used in other videos as long as it's not for commercial use....Thank you to Phil Rey for that!
DAMN! I wish I knew how to make an awesome video!!!! I am counting on one of you guys to make this thing awesome! Because this is exactly what we are witnessing here, the REBIRTH of the Wings....in your video, maybe start with last seasons defeat then into this season and end with the photo of the Phoenix out of the flames....something like that....BTW you can go right to this video on youtube and just download the soundtrack too...there is a link right there...as matter of fact, here it is: http://soundcloud.co...h-free-download
(MODS, if you feel this is in the wrong place, the by all means move it to where it belongs....)
