#2609522 Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

Posted by Rivalred on 21 May 2015 - 05:16 PM

Never once said it was anything but a large cap hit. I've simply been saying that it isn't a contract that is gonna handicap a team. 5 mil for just 3 years is manageable for a lot of teams. 

Larkin gonna be paired with AA. Dat speed...

"Larkin also participated in the IIHF World Junior Championship earlier this season, where he tied for the tournament lead with five games in five games."

If he really wants a challenge, he would stay in Detroit to try to make this defense look decent.  

Easier said than done when Holland had tied his hands and this team cannot land FA anymore due to some reason or another

Try again

As for Buffalo, yes it may of been a long season and lost season due to how the their team and organization has been slowly burning and not getting the number one pick was the nail in the coffin, well think again, now to make matters worse they thought they would have Babcock and he slipped through their hands and landed with a close rival

Well Sabres, how do you think fans of Detroit have felt? Watching our coach of 10 yrs speak with other teams not knowing and waiting, concerned if he does sign and we lose Blashill, but same time we are worrked about losing Babs also?

Buffalo, you had nothing to lose, only gain. We were going to lose either way, there has been salt in our open wounds for a week now.

Get over it and move on

What does Babs have to lose? He has more or less said it himself, he likes a challenge and work with kids and direct them. The man has a cup and some other fancy hardware. He gets to call shots per say and run the ship to some degree.

This is why he left Detroit, Toronto is a challenge for him and that is what motivates him.... And the raise of course

Maybe he will win coach of the year, one thing he has not achieved

Was just reading that article and what sticks out is the "I feel like I can talk to him"

Posted by Rivalred on 20 May 2015 - 05:37 PM

Maybe he's buying Babcock's old house, which used to be Osgood's.

Datsyuk doesn't like hand me downs, on the other hand, I recently found out that Babcock does; things that are in despair and need a lot of work

Posted by Rivalred on 26 April 2015 - 09:46 AM

We need to improve the defense more than we need to have two starters in my opinion. If we can't improve the defense in a trade involving Howard, it's a non-starter to me though, to be clear. Then you definitely still want two good goalies for a minute, because as I've said, I don't expect Mrazek to have miraculously cleaned up all his consistency issues over the course of the lull-filled regular season. Bug again, getting a decent d-man for Howard would help more long term than keeping Howard in the short term.

This thread should be locked

Howard is not being traded or going anywhere, Petr and Jimmy will be rotated out, plain and simple

There needs to be a hybrid, a player who can score, hit, fight, and enforce
