I think it's going to be close making the playoffs.

If we don't make it, seems like Jarmo might be interested in doing something to deflect blame.

We'll see.

"not the absence of fear"

They call people who speak 3 languages trilingual, 2 languages bilingual and 1 language American!

Comment 25 Jan 2019

Hmmm, good stuff.  Thanks for the post.

GMJK is certainly posturing like he's willing to play this out...keep both Bob and Artemi and let them walk Jul 1 if they can't resign them.  But that's what I would do too, if I was him now.  

I like your arguments for trading Bob.  But my concern is that it'll be a small set of suitors and the return may be small.  If we can't get much for him, might as well keep him.  I hope you are right, let him get his change of scenery and take what you can get.

From listening to the talking heads and reading Athletic, O1B and so on, I think we keep Panarin.  I wouldn't, I'm too scared of it going Taveres.  

I guess both of these HUGE issues and supporting deals all come down to had bad you want it THIS year.  If you think you have to win a playoff series in 2019, you probably keep them both and try to add a center and a defenseman.

There's just no way to know, so we'll wait and see.

There's irony in the clean up of the old Ohio Pen site had to be done before NWA was built.  That clean up was done under Doug's watch.

It could be argued he left a bigger mes than he cleaned up.

FWA....or FAW, as the case may be.

Comment 08 Nov 2018

It's gonna be fun to watch.  

I don't think it's about a FA goalie.  It's about what we have and our team salary structure.

We seem to have a good goalie pipeline, but that doesn't mean any of them (Korpi included) is Bob-like.

Our salary structure is improving, I think.  We overpaid 17 and 71, but since then has improved, I would argue.  

I bet he gets a modest raise and signs before the deadline.   Otherwise he tests the market and gets the new situation he wants.  If it's just about money and he can't get it, he comes back here for that modest raise...8.something for 3 years.

Eh!  Who knows!!!

Comment 06 Nov 2018

Cmon, Dog....give this guy a break! P>)

You just have a different definition of 'prospect'.  I'm just looking at who's in Cleveland and his points float to the top.  He's got to get a mention.

...and I COMPLETELY disagree with 'invisible'.  I distinctly remember the year he made the team outta camp.  Was it last year or the year before?  Anyway he was serviceable on the fourth line for a few games.  Took a stupid retaliatory penalty and was summarily sent down.

Robinson also got a mention....now there is a prospect we can agree on.

For the record, I'm mostly just pressing your buttons.

Comment 30 Oct 2018

I'm curious about a couple things besides those already mentioned.

With the Harrington, Clendening, Kukan mix for that 6th dman, how long do you think they carry all of them?

and what do you think is more important on the 72/9 trade front: how well our team is doing in the standings or what the potential trade partners are offering?

Thanks.

Comment 26 Oct 2018

I wonder who's on the list when you say "issues extending star players." 

I think Nash, the guy we traded Voracek for, Johansen, Anderson, Bobs and Bread.

All those can be explained except for the last two.  Even those seem to have their reasons.

Comment 23 Oct 2018

Well, I think it'd be cool to do.

Is that public information, though?

Comment 23 Oct 2018

vine, elvis and joonas....one has to be a winner, right?

I think Jarmo and Bob have already decided it's not happening and Bob is prepared to go via UFA.

..and Robinson has cooled off and is no longer on a ppg pace: only 3-3-6 in 7 games P>)

Comment 18 Oct 2018

I think Korpi is the news of the three points.  He's looked better than Bob in the early going and I expect he'll continue to get his chances.

...plus our goalie prospects look good.  It's impossible to say which, if any will rival Bob, but I think Bob and Jarmo are playing contract chicken.

Comment 18 Oct 2018

Yeah, I'm not sure who I would remove from the roster for him.  I just saw the news and thought I'd share.

In my mind he'll always be linked to Wennberg and Rychel.  The draft we had three first round picks.

Comment 11 Oct 2018

It all comes down to dance partners.

Jarmo needs a dance partner for a trade or have money to spend on free agency.  Either way he'll fill the roster, eh?

It's just a question of with what he'll fill the roster.  

Trading Panarin or Bob will bring uncertain pieces, picks and prospects mostly.  but I think I'd rather have that than the overpriced FA market.

It'll give us something to talk about as this unfolds.
