#2020286 Are we becoming Lightning fans?

Posted by Leadzedder on 28 July 2010 - 10:41 PM

I'm not a sports fan. Don't know dick about baseball, football, or basketball. I don't know the teams, stats, players, and barely the rules. Superbowl parties are about as far as I stray from hockey. I like the beer involved.

I'm not really a hockey fan. I don't watch any games that aren't redwings related. 15 th ranked prospect in a low league game being televised..... Sure. I'm in. Incredibly exciting game 7 Stanley cup final game without the wings..... Hells no. My season ends when the wings does.

I have center ice and watch 82 games every regular seaon. That's plenty. It's not even the logo.... It's the 23 that make it up every year. I'll keep tabs on former wings..... Fedorov. Kozzie. Yzerman in a management role.... Sure. But all my rooting is for the wings.

No Meech. No Miller. No Draper.

Draper is the doubtful one. Send him over to Tampa with Maltby. I like Draper. I'm good with keeping him but his 1.58 is hard to fit into the top 12 spots. That's alot of capspace riding the pine. Wonder if he and Steve would go for it.

I know we have these threads all the time but not sure if there's one since we've found out some numbers for Lids, Holmstrom, the Bert offer, etc. And I'm too lazy to search. I want Zherdev. I just read an article about him wanting back. I also like Bert, would be a great line with Huds and Fil. As for Winchester and Exelby, I guess I just mean the best options of toughness with some ability in those spots. Asham I read is out of that range, for trying to fit in all i'm trying to fit in.

Without the option of moving out Drapes, you could just go Draper instead of Bert. Could still fit in Zherdev and a couple 800k guys to punch other guys. Still some options I guess I mean.

FORWARDS
* Nikolai Zherdev ($2.500m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Tomas Holmstrom ($1.875m)

* Patrick Eaves ($0.800m) / * Darren Helm ($0.800m) / * Brad Winchester ($0.800m)
Kris Draper ($1.583m) / Mattias Ritola ($0.517m)

So....
Kovalchuk, Lebda? (Ericsson second pairing)
or
Hudler, Stuart and 500k cap space? (Ericsson 3rd pairing)


Enjoy another year in Russia Jiri.


IMO, Hossa never fit this team. (and still potted 40) I think Kovalchuk would fit perfectly.
