While I would love a player like Lucic I dont trust the guy. Ive said before I feel he will be the next NHL to come out as having a major chemical dependence problem. Dude has to be coked up to act the way he does sometimes. Dont want him getting a big money contract. I would have loved the Martin rumors had Miller not gotten the new contract. Only really makes sense if Holland is looking to offer up some of our younger bottom six guys in a move for a dman but in reality who would want any of them outside of AA. You cant trade away AA with Helm walking. Hes a direct replacement with a higher ceiling. It seems Detroit is exploring everyone on the market. Maybe thats Kenny's plan. Be in on everyone so nobody knows your true plans.
And he's one hit away from being Franzen 2.0.
So is Crosby but that wouldnt stop every team in the league from jumping at the chance to acquire him
Obviously the guy was just angling for the highest contract possible. Probably told KHL teams if they dont meet his demands he will go to the NHL and then told NHL teams if they dont meet his demands he would stay in the KHL. Eventually he knew someone would overpay him.
People can criticize the Wings all the want, but the 6'7 Bishop is the only reason why Tampa is up 3-1. Someone needs to check if Bishop is part gorilla[emoji14]. There's no room for our guys to score. Why do we get stuck playing these guys 2 years in a row?
If they make him move side to side he is weak. The problem is they aren't skilled enough to create those opportunities. Everything is straight on where his size is the difference.
Its amazing everyone is calling for Blashills head. Same thing was said about Babs after his first year when the Wings bombed out 5 times harder than this year. Good thing nobody listened to the fans then.
No reason for Abs to take that fight anyways. Boyle likely would have knocked the s*** out of him so why give them anything to feel happy about when the game was won. Just blueball him and keep him frustrated.
