Fans should pre-order their Thomas Vanek jersey's right now. 

Our free agent signing is having a healthy Drew Miller back.

#2678415 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 June 2016 - 08:09 PM

I thought Holland would convince Datsyuk to play one more year.


I didn't watch the press conferences, but it makes for an interesting off season. If Holland trades Dats contract, will he go after Stamkos, or use the money to re-sign Helm, and give guys like Nyquist, Tatar, Smith, and DeKeyser raises when they become FA's?


At this point, I don't think Holland could convince a person coming out of the desert to buy a bottle of water.

I never understood all the love for Jurco, and in continues to baffle me as more time passes.  At first it was just Babcock not utilizing him properly, but then his boy Blashill became the head coach, whom he had a good working relationship with in the AHL.  And then Blashill repeatedly scratched him and played him primarily in the bottom six as well.  Its difficult to imagine two separate head coaches mismanaging the same player in the same way, especially when one of those coaches used him liberally in the AHL.  Jurco has had opportunities in the top six and he has been unable to run with it on any of the chances he was given.  To this, people respond that his opportunities weren't long enough and he needs more time to gel with his linemates.  I can appreciate this to an extent, but at the same time, how long should a head coach attach an anchor to one of his top two lines to bog down the rest of the line with before he cuts the cord?  If Jurco struggles on the top six for five games and we end up losing one or two of those games we're already talking about the difference between making and missing the playoffs.  Should he go 10 games on the top six?  15?  20?  I don't know the correct answer, but I do know that Larkin, Nyquist, Tatar, Abdelkader, even Helm had no problem making the most of the opportunity when they were put alongside Datsyuk or Zetterberg.  The NHL doesn't reward potential.  It rewards performance.  And that's Jurco's biggest issue.  Pulkkinen as well, for that matter.  I would love for him to suddenly click and become the power-forward we've all been hoping for, and I'm not saying that it won't happen yet.  But we can't hold the rest of the team back while we wait for Jurco to develop.

Oh look, Brian Boyle scores another goal when he should have been in the box.

Holland said he'll be more aggressive at the Entry Draft regarding trades....

Imagine all the booze he and Tatar could drink. Maybe even more than Patrick Kane.

No thanks for me. Obviously.

#2673580 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 April 2016 - 04:39 PM

We're so bad right now offensively, that I'd sign Ray Rice, let alone Radulov.  Impressionable youth can go become boy scouts.  My concern is not his attitude, but whether he can still be a legit top 6 forward.  Then again, we don't have many of those, so maybe it's worth a shot.

At this point, I'd be willing to sign Joseph Stalin, if he can consistently put the puck in the net. This team can't score to save it's life. And we have enough European veterans that should be able to help Radulov focus and calm down. I highly doubt Larkin and Mantha will all of the sudden turn into cry babies and totally change their personalities if we sign him. We need a talented goal scorer desperately. Not another over the hill Brad Richards or Stephen Weiss. 



We're not that desperate. No, thanks.

 Yes, yes we are.

F U Blashill, you didn't do the right things with this team.

Agreed.  We should bring Bertuzzi back to paralyze him.

Is this finally the year


I really hope so. The Hawks need to go away quickly so their bandwagon fans can shut up and let people enjoy the rest of the playoffs.
