In Topic: Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

Yesterday, 10:08 PM

If he scores a ppg during these playoffs and has a big role in them winning the championship, what do you think his chances are of making the wings roster out of camp?
Or do you think they'll keep him in grand rapids regardless?

 

 

 Given he's only 18 I have to think they're keeping him in Grand Rapids for the season regardless, barring a lot of injuries for the Wings and Larkin playing lights out.

In Topic: Ovechkin Top 5 Goal Scorer all time?

Yesterday, 11:22 AM

I've been thinking about this too, was listening to MvsW the other week and they said Ovi was 9th in scoring since 1992 (NHL debut in 2005), fair to say he doesn't reach Gretzky but he might reach Bossy and Hull. Even if he doesn't, in an era where scoring is down, goalie pads are bigger etc he will surely go down as one of the greatest scorers the game has ever seen.

 

He also lost a season and a half to lockouts. 

 

Where he ends up scoring wise depends on if the trend of allowing interference continues of if the league heads back to where it was after the lockout.   He's certainly one of the greatest goal scorers the game has ever seen though. 


In Topic: It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Word has it that Babs is a reason why players don't want to come here. Wasn't there a poll where Babs was voted the coach that players would least like to play for? I'm just hoping that with him gone it may help us. I'm guessing most NHL players don't really have an opinion on Blashill.

 

Source? 

 

The only thing I've heard is from a few years back there was a player's poll and they voted Ron Wilson as the coach they wouldn't want to play for.   Torts was 2nd.

Even if it was undeserved hype, I'm guessing a guy who coached Canada to two gold medals is probably one a lot of Canadian players would be interested in playing for.
