The problem is that backups haven't really proven anything until they are asked to carry the load.  Backups can often put up very good numbers for various reasons, but largely because they tend to be called upon to play against weaker teams and because they are given a much easier workload.

 

A backup may have great numbers, but can they handle playing 60+ games a year against the best competition?

 

For the record Mrazek has no stats anywhere near the top 10.

 

Wait... so Jones and Talbot are not better than Quick and Lundquist despite having better stats?

 

That's just crazy...

Sadly so far they haven't have the game in laptop while watching and I have a feeling it needs to get a bit chippy till they finally go What af****** downer

 

Yeah I guess you'll just to have to put up with that worthless game of ice hockey in the mean time...




#2563752 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Holland has also stated he has no interest in rentals or guys with 1 year left.

If he makes a trade, it'll be for someone with term.

#2563109 Mike Yeo (Wild) Has Meltdown At Practice

Minnesotta made the better offer and his girlfriend wanted to move back so he made the right decision. Yeah, this is a down year for them but the wild are an up and coming team. Wonder, if they would give Timmeyyy a call soo

 

I'd hardly call them "up and coming".  All of Suter, Parise, Vanek, Pominville, Koivu are over 30 years old.

 

They've got some good young players, but who doesn't? They seriously lack depth on defence and a good starting goalie.

Swinging the gloves is kind of Chara's thing now isn't it?

All the more reason for a trade. 

Although, the #1 piece I want moved in a trade is currently injured... so I dunno how that helps us at all.

*sadface*

 

Jonas Gustavsson? It's Gustavsson isn't it? I bet it's Gustavsson.... :bye:

Thoughts on Alex Chiasson.

 

Can he play defence?




#2562205 McGratton on waivers

Posted by Son of a Wing on 10 January 2015 - 08:11 AM

Gotta admit....I saw a 6-page, McGrattan thread, created less than 24hrs ago and I was like...WTF...

 

I was not disappointed...Kudos to e_prime and Kip....and an obvious shout out to Frank for not letting us down.

 

edit...had to change from 5 pages to 6...lol

Based upon my exhaustive search of the league's worst teams I've come up with a comprehensive list of right handed defensemen that could be targeted at the trade deadline.  (I have very little to do at work today)

 

Known Knowns:  Wisniewski, Barrie, Petry, Spurgeon

 

Out of the Blue:  John Klingberg*, David Savard

 

Depth:  Nate Prosser, Paul Postma

 

*Klingberg is who I'd target.  While he seems to factor into Dallas' future, I think you could get Nill to come off him for a reasonable package centered around our good young defensemen (considering Nill helped draft our good young defensemen). 

 

Is Klingberg really much of an upgrade over Jensen/Marchenko/Sproul?

That really is impressive. Crazy to see it put in perspective like that.

As far as Quincey wanting to keep things simple and play defensive hockey... please keep it up KQ. Even if his play is a microcosm of the team's, he's doing right by Kyle Quincey. I'm having flashbacks to last season when he was 2nd in shots among Detroit defenders. Let Danny do the shooting.

While we're on the topic, stop shooting Ericsson. Just stop. Big Rig... smash. No shoot. Smash.

 

Absolutely.  Guys like Quincey and Ericsson need to keep their game simple. That's when they're most effective. Same as a lot of our grinding forwards. Simple Simple Simple.
