Topics I've Started

Andreas Athanasiou

Helm speed with better hands. Could be a steal. Shootout at the end of the clip is one of the cooler ones I have ever seen.

"Athanasiou idolizes and models his game after two Russian stars, Pavel Bure and Pavel Datsyuk.  Shows speed like Bure and hands like Datsyuk."

When Eaves comes back...

Detroit will have too many forwards on the roster when Eaves returns. One of the bottom 6 forwards will have to be waived, traded for a low pick or bundled in a package for an upgrade.

Who would you prefer goes?

I doubt Helm or Abdelkader goes, but Eaves/Miller/Emmerton/Mursak all have similar qualities and are pretty easily replaceable, even within the organization.

As far as value to the team, I'd rank them:


Emmerton seems like the most obvious trade bait as he is young with upside but largely redundant on this team. Eaves injuries have me a little worried though.
