In Topic: What NHL forward is currently worth the 6th pick

Yesterday, 06:11 AM

This is supposedly the strongest draft since '03. Yes, where we're picking there is our John Tavares, our Ryan Strome, our Jordan Eberle.  I want Lou/Conte to pick somebody that even if they need another year of "seasoning" .  I want this over JVR, or Skinner etc.

Oduya looks good because he's on an excellent team! And look at who he;s playing with, fellow Swede. Put Oduya on Devils?  as much as many here don't like him,

Fraser is the only d man that plays mean & will fight you at the drop of a hat. None of our top 4 (greener/Lars, Merrill, or Severson) play "mean". This is not a criticism, Lou likes one of them to play this way. He'll pursue this type of D-man.

Fiesty, which of our prospects likely to turn pro next fall?  This is of course if they get a contract.

Nice goal.  Doesn't Lou have to sign him, or he goes back into the draft?

Marty would be a HORRIFIC GM.  BEYOND Horrific.

 

What are you imagining based on his past hockey and life experiences?  I can list off the pros and cons - but:

 

Basically the fatal flaw is his self indulgence.  That will ABSOLUTELY lead to poor decision making. He will NEVER get it under control. 

 

I just dont know Oates well enough but it's an interesting thought actually.  He seems to have a very cool head and a clear  (for my tastes)  correct vision.  He has some communication stuff to learn... and i canNOT tell what it is -- drives me absolutely insane.  Thanks for the ^&%ing muzzles Lou -- how can I help you then HMMM????

 

Hey --   just a quick note -- I figured out Lou's lie tell --- he stops listening.  He's committed to the lie and he stops really listening - he's for sure learned: to listen after the fact, is to open yourself up to inconsistencies in reasoning -- therefore getting caught in a lie.  Once he's committed to that lie he can no longer apply logic or reasoning without acknowledging the betrayal of trust -- and then you've you got your strawman ready built and an end to productivity :P.   Anyhow --  It's very obvious.  He's got a liar face that he makes and kind of an innocent shirking of responsibility face.  It's very annoying -- and the reason is that he's NOT listening -- you're SOL and it's infuriating.  Yeah -- I just needed to see it once and it stuck with me  - you know I'm right... I'm just right about that stuff  :uni:  :P

I don't think Marty would be any different than Stevie Y in  Tampa, or Trevor in Van. They needed to learn on the job. Don't think Marty will be any different.  A Baptism of fire will help.

I think ex-coaches would make better GM's imo. I think they see the big picture a lil clearer.  therefore, Pete DB ...............COME ON DOWN!
