#2639973 Marchenko

Posted by krsmith17 on 28 November 2015 - 06:10 PM

I didn't say he "can't" become a top 4, I said I wouldn't lable him as a future top 4. I hope he surpasses my expectations and becomes a 3/4, but I think he's more likely to be a 5/6 defenseman.

I like Marchenko and he's played great so far but I wouldn't say he has "a lot of upside", and I certainly wouldn't lable him as a future top 4. He's very smart with and without the puck, which is great to see from a young guy, with just 30 games played in the NHL. But I personally don't see him becoming anything more than a reliable bottom pairing shutdown defensman. I do agree though, he is more than earning his spot in the lineup. Will be interesting to see who gets scratched for tomorrow's game with Kindl coming back in.

Holland > Nill > Yzerman



In terms of career accomplishments as GM.  Not based on the present, or even the recent past.

Babcock couldn't get this team to play either. Blash is obviously not close to Babcock's ability as a coach. This team unmotivated. I do say some of this has to do with coaching. Blash is not ready.


I disagree.  This team needs to figure it out or some trades need to take place.

I'm seeing shades of a David Clarkson type signing here with Abs.

I've almost had enough of all the nothing Pulks bring to this team. Good to see Green back in. Would have rather seen March replace Kindle.

GO WINGS!!!!!!!!!

Should be a good fast pace today. The Stars are playing good hockey.
Gonna need to bring it today boys. And that is usually hard for them for early games.

Call him up.  Maybe he can toughen up our 4th line.

#2628545 Dylan Larkin on opening night roster

Posted by krsmith17 on 06 October 2015 - 07:45 AM

I'll obviously be rooting for the kid, and I'd love nothing more than to see him light it up and never play another game in the American League again. There's no doubt he's a star in the making, but he only turned 19 just a few months ago and has only played 6 games of pro hockey. I just would have preferred to see him start this season in Grand Rapids, and if he tore s*** up down there after a few months, then make the decision to call him up.


We have a ton of forward depth, even with Datsyuk and Helm out of the lineup, but this all but ensures that one or possibly both of Jurco and Pulkkinen will be out of the lineup on opening night, and that, I'm not okay with. I would rather have seen Zetterberg center the top line, Richards the second, Sheahan the third, and Glendening the forth, with Larkin centering the top line in Grand Rapids. There's no need for a fill-in center while Datsyuk is out, with those 4 guys down the middle. Larkin needs to be playing center, and they better not be planning on playing him on the wing like it has appeared in practices. We have enough healthy centers and enough wingers as well, with Abdelkader, Nyquist, Tatar, Jurco, Pulkkinen and Franzen in the top 9, and Miller, Ferraro and Andersson on the forth line. Helm will also be within the mix as soon as he's healthy, which could be as soon as opening night.


There is no need to rush this kid. And what about a guy like Athanasiou, who has been with the organization two years longer than Larkin, and arguably outplayed him in preseason? I'm not saying Andreas should have necessarily been on the team over Larkin, but I just think both should have started in Grand Rapids, with the amount of depth we have up front in Detroit...


Anyway, good luck Dylan, I hope you prove me wrong, stick with the big club, and are in the Calder conversation at the end of the season...

#2628522 Dylan Larkin on opening night roster

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 October 2015 - 11:15 PM

I'm very happy for him, guy had such an amazing camp but on the same token I'm kinda sad in terms of (maybe) the Wings are rushing him. Pre-season is one thing but this week it's go time and would have prefered to see him center the Mantha line in GR. Anyhow I guess it's only temporally till Pasha is back having him center the 2 line would be a lot to ask out of  Larkin so soon  but you never know.


As far as him being the next face of the franchise I think it will be between Larkin & DannyD I mean when was the last time the 2 faces of this franchise were all from michigan and probably the best center and defender of the team in the future? That's so freaking cool, I may think Holland has lost his fire and question how his builds the team in a very softish way but him and the help of our perfect human really nailed the Dekeyser signing.

Half of the money he is going to get belong to Pavel...

#2618355 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

No thank you... Would rather have Semin. Not that he shows up for ever game either though

#2618070 Free agents this off season

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 01 July 2015 - 02:02 PM

Nyquist is untouchable... If anything Mantha or AA would be the forward and they wouldn't want any of our defenseman I don't think.


For the right player no one on this team should  be untouchable except Datsyuk and Zetterberg.
