#2618666 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Posted by Rivalred on 02 July 2015 - 10:18 AM

This doesn't bode well for Holland getting rid of Kindl like I hoped.

Blashill also likes Kindl's abilities and wants to give him a chance to resurrect his career here.

You just made my day a little worse. Amazing how this team is too patient with some players and not enough with others.

Adam Marsh story

The run he had in 2013 showed he is capable of being a star. Will he hit his ceiling.....only time will tell.

Team needs to become stronger on the back end for our forwards to be forwards and focus on offense, the last few yrs focus has been defense for everyone, we need more offense from defense and better transition

Regardless, We're rebuilding - you don't trade young talent and a first rounder for a player at the end of their career in that situation.
I'll really hoping for Franson. Yandle would be great if it didn't take too much - otherwise wait for him to be a UFA next year.

Older guy end of his career no, younger impact player immediate, yes

Don't think Nyquist is an emerging star

Good player yes, emerging star, no

Well, yeah. Their best players are still in their prime. But when they do age, their best forwards and dmen will age out at the same time. 

Wherever you go there you are? Lol

#2615123 The Bowman Effect

Posted by Rivalred on 18 June 2015 - 03:18 PM

If I had that Cupboard from the story, it would produce the Stanley Cup less quickly than Scotty Bowman could. 

small players would come alive, surprise, and play Big?

I have a very exciting update on the new coach. He's sitting in front of my friend at the Tiger's game tonight...

That Cleary with him?

#2613378 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Posted by Rivalred on 06 June 2015 - 11:26 PM

Lose in game 7 in the playoffs to Tampa, Lose Babcock, Tampa is in the SCF, Blackhawks in the SCF, and Cleary wants another year

What could be worse?

I need to see the Corsi stats first

#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."

Swear I didn't write this
