#2460559 Do Quincey and Smith have a future in Detroit?

Posted by barabbas16 on 03 December 2013 - 11:20 PM

I disagree that he's been better this season. He's taken a bit of a step backwards. Kindl is coming up on 27 years old on his 4th season in the NHL yet is plagued with the same issues he had in the minors. He's not terrible but as a 1st round pick at 19th overall, he's a disappointment to say the least.

He's a serviceable d-man who has never realized his potential. There's the off chance a change of scenery will allow him to take that step forward.

If the Wings got rid of Smith but kept Kindl (unless Smith was part of a package for a major star) then they front office has definitely gone off the rails.


Well, that depends on how you look at it.  Let's look at some other #19 overall picks in comparison to Kindl....


2010 - Nick Bjugstad - 32 GP, 4 G, 7 A

2009 - Chris Kreider - 44 GP, 8 G, 11 A

2008 - Luca Sbisa - 245 GP, 8 G, 43 A

2007 - Logan McMillan - 0 GP, 0 G, 0 A

2006 - Mark Mitera - 0 GP, 0 G, 0 A

2005 - Jakub Kindl - 175 GP, 8 G, 32 A

2004 - Lauri Korpikoski - 354 GP, 57 G, 63 A

2003 - Ryan Getzlaf - 582 GP, 165 G, 387 A

2002 - Jakub Kories - 0 GP, 0 G, 0 A

2001 - Shaone Morrisonn - 480 GP, 11 G, 64 A

2000 - Krys Kolanos - 149 GP, 20 G, 22 A

1999 - Kirill Safronov - 35 GP, 2 G, 2 A


I know he's the highest Red Wings draft pick since Martin Lapointe in 1991 or whatever, so he seems like a really high draft pick that totally hasn't met expectations since he took a while to develop and doesn't light the world on fire.  But, when viewed with a wider gaze, he isn't Getzlaf (obviously), but neither does he seem to be "a disappointment to say the least" "as a 1st round pick 19th overall."


That's just my opinion, though.

Which will happen first?  Dekeyser signing or Ryan Clowe scoring?

I don't know how often it needs be said that some of you radically overrate Bouwmeester.

#2359550 Mursak on waivers

Not a catalyst, but a first step in righting the ship.  Please let this be just the beginning.  Or, just what needed to be done and no need reading into the future.

Gonna throw this out there....Holland probably tried to trade him for a pick, most teams probably looked at the wings roster and said, well you are going to waive him anyways I will just wait until then.  Someone was going to  need to go on waivers at some point.  Holland wasn't dealing with strength here... Why give up a pick when chances are he, or someone else was going to be waived.  As with a 7th round pick, its a crap shoot and same with Mursak.


Teams that will take Mursak




4-No one and he goes to GR

Don't leave out CBJ.

Doesn't look like he's being waved to make room for Franzen.  Franzen says he's ruling himself out for the weekend games.  Aiming for a return on Wednesday, per Ansar KHAAAAAAN!!!


Franzen's "ruling himself out"??


He must have plans for the weekend. :lol:

Sounds like someone wasn't invited to Wayne Gretzky's Fantasy Camp.
