  1. Not really Puking at him, just have not seen enuff to warrant the cost. Injuries cost us bigtime/playoffs last year and his were the most glaring imho. If he stays healthy , I am sure the coach will determine where he plays. I hope he can contribute as advertised, that would make us stronger yet, compared to last year. Lets face reality, If half our OT losses where wins, we make the playoffs last year. That is how tight it was. Any improvement could put us over the mark. A lot of little ones is sure to set the tone. - gudbranson v Hammer - Erickson v Vrbata - tryamkin v webber - a healthy Sutter - If Juliov(sp) stays with the big club ??? All these are betterments in my mind, altho the loss of Hammer is suspect to me , we may miss him.
  2. who is this Sutter guy we be talking about? the guy I watched lose most of his faceoffs, the guy we saw little of cause he is always on the LTI list? I am sure our Coach will balance the lines according to what He sees and expects, I see a case for him at RW and at C. hmm , I would like to see more games played, before I judge
  3. Grenier is missing some serious GROWL in my mind. Dorsett has it, Virtanen has it, we need MORE of it. especially since we have so many players that do not have any. Do n ot get me wrong here though, when I say GROWL I do not mean toughness, like the Sedins are TOUGH cause they can take a beating and they do, when I say GROWL, I mean they hit, they retaliate, and just make life miserable for the opposition and will fight when necessary. who on our team has Growl..... Dorset Virtanen Tryamkin Sbisa Gudbranson Hanson ( to a dergree he does bang a lot and I have seen him drop em) Burrows ( altho does pulling hair and biting count.... Heck Yas) Horvat ( I think/hope so) Pedan Who does not : Sedins Edler Hutton Sutter Bear cheese Tanev Unkown to me : Eriksson Etem We are finally starting to balance the books on Grit and GROWL. I think in our division, we need more Growl, especially if those guys can actually play!!!
  4. I really like how he is building the team from the goal out. Goalie situation is ....Awsome D situation is...... Even more awsome with Size & Grit Offense is..... well lets see.... our fist line is now Tops second line if healthy , should be okay third line ... should be awsome fourth line is gonna score lots against other teams 4th line. This right now That should get us to the playoffs , then we see, I am excited.....
  5. you guys all mean there is no hope of our new defender Olli to make this team this year? I was kinda hoping he would show well enough to be that 7th guy with sheltered minutes
  6. I believe we are shooting for a big name and a medium name.... but the market will prevail and see the price tags rising, so we may actually get only one big and play Burrows, I am okay with that assuming we can get a decent year from Sutter.
  7. with the OP lineup, we clearly make the playoffs, barring too many injuries. How far do we go??? that will be the question.
  8. None of the above
  9. Congrats, However , If I was Henry , I'd make Dan go receive it, just to mess with everyone's heads, hehe.
  10. Hartnell plays like a BEAST in playoffs or when not injured , I would consider the cost seriously. 3rd plus Hartnell for ....? our 5th & Higgins/Burrows & their second. I would make that call.
  11. I totally agree with OP. Hansen's Hands are finally catching up to his feet , and I have been waiting a long time to see it. There is NOTHING like a guy who gives it all, to motivate the younguns On and Off the ice. The fact that he plays awesome at both ends, has speed galore and can play anywhere in the lineup, without BITCHING is a Keeper in my book.
  12. lets see.... if we converted Half of our OT losses last year, we make the playoffs!!!! interesting. A healthy team, and the changes already instituted and we clearly make the show. But....where is that second line scoring that is ready to usurp the first line from the twins??? THAT is when we are a CONTENDER
  13. Slim to none & Slim just left town
  14. I was very sad the day we traded Ohlund away or did he got to free agency? He was the most solid D we had and contributed on the score sheet as well. ROH?......absolutely....
  15. I like what JB is doing, building from the back end out. Goalie situation is strong D is getting stronger , bigger, meaner now lets work on that UFA
