Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Yeah I just heard on team 1040 they're now saying 2 buy outs, is this some thing new ? I thought it was to be limited to 1 player only. The problem with the lower teams is Luongo holds the NTC in his back pocket and does he want to go to a no hope team

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

If the new Cap is $60 million does this lessen the value of Luongo. Most will know there is now a need more than ever for the 'Nucks to move him ?

Re: There will be a strike

Oh, and I'm continually astounded by the sheer number of people who don't know how to spell the word losing. As in a loss or lost, not loosing as in setting free or letting go of.
Thank you Sir :oops:

Re: There will be a strike

Correct me if I'm wrong what was the point of the PA playing hard ball. They are now at 50% of HRR down from 57% the length of contracts is 6 years, the new CBA will be 10 years long and they've lost half a season of salaries and the Cap is going to be set at $60 million. Surely they new they would ...

Take a look at this article, Obviously some one that has a lot more time or willingess to review draft records of Detroit They use Detroits BAD drafting record as an example Myth Busting: Must you draft well to win?

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

dbr provided a comprehensive list of players who were picked by the Wings in the first few rounds. They were still better at drafting than most if not all teams in the early rounds. When you add in all the gems from the later rounds they blow everybody away. Not sure why you have such a difficult t...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Who gives a rats ass what round the players were taken in ? The fact of the matter is my point stands. Detroit was far and away the best drafting team from the late 80's ( you can probably take it back to the early 80's if you want to) until 5 years ago. They have drafted way more quality NHL playe...

No point at all, it's some thing like talking about Stanley Cup appearances for TO..... long long ago. Most of the guys mentioned are pulling down a pension now :lol:

Re: Prospects Thread 2012-13

It's tough to get a read on AG. I watched him for a few games with Halifax in the Q. I never saw any skills that seperated him from others. I know he's a late addition to the Junior ranks and I suppose is a true late bloomer. Seemed like a good move to send him to EU, because he may have a tough tim...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

I don't understand how a team can get raked over the coals for getting a good-to-great player in the late rounds just because they did not pick them earlier? Draft picks should be used to take the best players yes, but the marketplace should also be taken into account. You want to pick players as l...

Re: Prospects Thread 2012-13

Sorry I just don't believe that. If you study there picks you'll see for every lucky late pick proceeded by 5 terrible picks made ahead of the lucky ones. No one wastes picks like Detroit did. If the lucky picks were so sure fire star players they don't leave them and allow every other team take a s...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Detroit is NOT overloaded with prospects it's a fantasy repeated over and over by media & fans....like sheep. They had a couple of lucky picks years ago but since then have wasted a lot of picks. Most of it was covered up pre Cap days by buying players...no more. I'm going to be interested to see h...

Look 12 months ago I'd have said the same but are you listening. Just like BB is having a tough time finding good things to say about Colbourne, MG is finding tough sledding trying to find good things to say about Schroeder in recent interviews and lets face it he was benched in the AHL ...not a goo...

Problem is he's the same size as Schroeder, make a good jockey :lol: :lol: 165lbs

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

IMO, I would be happy just trading Luongo for a 2013 1st round pick from whatever team, like what the Capitals did by offing Varlamov to the Avalanche. Didn't the Capitals get Filip Forsberg with the Lanche pick? I'd much prefer that than getting the fucking rumored crumbs out that dismal organizat...
