#2649358 Miller Out With Lower Body Injury

Posted by e_prime on 21 January 2016 - 02:25 PM

I'd be okay with that. Either way -- with Miller and/or Helm -- you're looking at some man games lost due to injury. ...so jettison Andersson and give CALLAHAN a shot.

I wouldn't mind keeping Helm, but I really don't want to pay what I think we're going to have to pay to keep Helm.

I do like his versatility, but I don't think he's worth much more than what he's currently being paid and no offense to the guy, but he's a third and fourth line guy. Not top 6.

I'm not really pro or anti re-signing Miller, but if it came down to signing one of either Miller or Helm, I pick Helm every time, even taking into account the difference in salaries. I was really hoping that we would groom Ferraro into a Miller type player, but that's obviously not the case. If we decide to have a 4th line of Miller - Glendening - Helm next season I would be okay with that. As long as Andersson is nowhere near the lineup, Helm is primarily used as a 4th line penalty killer and Jurco is a mainstay in the top 9...

Either way, I hope our PK is able to get back on track while Miller is out and hopefully he has a speedy recovery and can get in some games before the playoffs...

Edit: Posted too quickly / Spelling

I want Callahan and Athanasiou on the club next year. Probably rotating in on the fourth.

No Miller. No Helm. No Andersson.
If we're resigning any of them it's Miller, but honestly I think the injuries are starting to pile up.
Helm is trade bait for the deadline.




#2649114 Kronwall out 2-4 Weeks after Knee Scope

Posted by e_prime on 20 January 2016 - 11:56 AM

 

The time off for Kronwall is something Detroit knew was coming, and coach Jeff Blashill told DetroitRedWings.com’s Bill Roose that Kronwall’s surgery was mapped out to coincide with the all-star break. The Red Wings’ break is seven days, Jan. 26 to Feb. 3.

#2649089 Brian McGrattan

Kudos Smite.  I thought all the McGrattan threads had been shuttered...

I really wanted to start a new thread titled "God Emperor Brian McGrattan Gets Knocked the EFF Out" but thought otherwise. 

 

To go beyond this scary incident:

There have some gnarly deeds in the world of hockey over the last week or so...

 

Linesman punching kid. Trainer comes out and spears linesman.

Gudbranson fights Hendricks to avenge Ekblad hit.

Arizona and the Blues (?) fight after the final buzzer.

 

I know we've discussed fighting and the NHL ad naseum around these parts, but instead of discussing it in the Ericsson thread... how about here?

#2648902 Ericsson, our Giant Teddy Bear

Posted by e_prime on 19 January 2016 - 08:03 AM

I agree kliq. ...and for the record I wasn't trying to be contrarian. I just think there's a really really long way to go before we see fighting completely eliminated from the game.

As far as Ericsson goes, I'm going to reiterate that he needs to focus. Use the big body to muck in the corners, clear the crease, and keep his game as simple as possible. He's not a guy I want to see pinching in on the play or getting fancy with the puck. I also don't mind seeing him drop them every so often but I *do* like the fact that he often times just ignores the physical challenges and stares the guy down.

Oh Keith Jones and Jeremy Roenick are going to analyze some of the tricky calls the refs had to deal with this game. *immediatelychangeschannel*

No. Do not give Z a penalty shot. Take the two minute power play. Thank you very much.

I can't believe MDZ is eating 20+ minutes a night for the Flyers. Two seasons ago his career was deemed over by a ton of folks.

Coincidence?  No.  Correlation is the correct answer. ...but hey, he's just an over the hill worthless scrub, right?

 

Oh... and this. 

Drew Miller has led NHL forwards in blocked shots past two seasons
