In Topic: Pulkkinen re-signs.... 1 year deal

There is nothing wrong with that, but some people are acting like he's some kind of goal scoring God who will score 40+ a year and anyone who disagrees is a hater.

 

I thought that was all of our prospects until the collective decides they're the worst after 15 games or so?

I cant speak for anyone else, but I'm not losing any sleep at the thought of Chicago being brought down a peg. I'm sick and tired of seeing them in the finals. This is a perfect example of why cap management is so important in today's NHL. Being reckless now can screw you later.

 

Reckless? Screwed over?

 

How many Cups have they won in the last 5 years again?


I've been saying this for a couple years now, they'll not be able to sign and have to get rid of players. Also doesn't help you gave Kane and Toews ridiculous contracts.

 

Of course, people say it every year, and they get pinched now and again, drop some people, and so far, they've found a way back. I'm not saying one has to like it or the team, but so far, what they've been doing has been working for them. I'm not about to be the one writing them off again at this point. Again, they've got a great core and they keep retooling and coming back strong. Cups don't lie.

Holland's got a real good streak going this summer. Good to see.

I think having a better regular season would drastically help that. We've lost to serious contenders every year other than when we were just awful against Boston. I chalk that up to inexperience though

 

We really were having a pretty good regular season for quite awhile though. The wheels did fall off down the stretch, but this team looked pretty good early on. We'll definitely be better with Green and Richards this year.

I'm just happy to see Holland taking some chances, especially after Weiss blew up in his face. You can't be scared of free agency just because some deals don't work. You've got to build first and foremost from the draft for sure, more than ever in this era. But you can't accommodate for everything in the draft. You've got to plug holes via trade and free agency. There's no guarantee these moves will get us a Cup or work out at all, but you've got to keep trying. And these deals today are pretty good ones.

 

But if these too blow up, I really will be convinced that Holland is 100% completely cursed.
