In Topic: HHOF #5 Lidstrom head of 2015 class

Yesterday, 09:39 PM

Why I hate the internet:

 

 

 

Chris Pronger. Best defenseman of his generation. Absolute offense intended to Nick Lidstrom, who was about half the player.

In other news:

The sky is blue.

Rain is wet.

 

 

I'd kill to make a major signing one of these days.  I want a stellar defenseman, a Vezina goalie, that kind of thing.  I want all the waiting to be really, really worthwhile.

Why wouldn't Pronger be in the HOF?  He's one of the best players of his generation.  I don't see them looking the other way because of some lame salary cap loophole the idiotic NHL has created. Pronger isn't the mastermind behind the league's idiocy.  

Because you are eligible 3 years after you retire.  Pronger is not retired, therefore he is not eligible.  Not sure how they're working that out.


In Topic: Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

I would take that report with a grain of salt - just like many thought Babs wasn't going to Toronto.

 

All in all I wouldn't mind seeing Phaneuf in the Winged Wheel - just that we have a few kids from GR that could fill in nicely now that Blashill is coach, and there's also a few worthy UFA's (in particular Dman Cody Franson) that arguably would be a better fit in Detroit instead of Phaneuf (especially on the cap hit).

 

Anywho - it'll be an interesting draft weekend since the speculation on some Leaf players will be at an all-time high.

Oh, there's enough salt involved to de-ice my driveway, hence the "supposedly," but I'll grab at any little straw I can these days.
