No way Pulk goes on the waiver wire. He would be poached in about 2 seconds. Anderson's new contract makes it possible to bury pretty much the entire thing in GR, and honestly, wouldn't be a huge blow if someone did claim him.
No idea what you do when Datsyuk gets back though. Either Larkin goes down, Miller/Ferraro gets DFA'd, or you move someone. Possibly banking on the fact that you rarely will have a full healthy forward group. Franzen is a head hit away from being on LTIR the rest of his career.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||Lines they were skating with||
Lines they were skating with today:
1: Abdelkader, Zetterberg, Larkin
2: Nyquist, Glendening (Richards is out today), Tatar
3: Franzen, Sheahan, Jurco
4: Miller, Anderson, Ferraro
My guess is Glendening drops to Andersons spot when Richards gets back from Chicago (picking up his ring). Pulk and Anderson are the extras for now.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||He is actually starting the||
He is actually starting the season on the top line with Zetterberg and Abdelkader. Biggest question is what they do with the roster when Helm gets back. Most likely will DFA Anderson.

With a couple quick fixes, this is the most complete Tigers team of this window. You add Cueto, and a solid back-end bullpen piece, this team can play for a title. Top to Bottom, best lineup DD has put together, best defense, best speed.

Anyone have an idea on the competition level?
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Obviously Holland has a say||
Obviously Holland has a say in this, but I will be curious to see if this opens up the doors for younger players to get a shot with the Wings without being "overripe". Babcock was fond of saying "tie goes to the veteran", but it has always seemed to me that he loathed the idea of playing kids. Can't tell me the there was a tie between Cleary and Nyquist two seasons ago.

Aren't there rumors out there of a few potential WR grad transfers?
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Well said||
Well said, and I agree. "Those who stay" and all that jazz, but I wouldn't be surprised to see some players drop. Not saying it is right, or that it isn't, But Harbaugh is a maniac. He is going to weed out those that don't fit his program and there might be some turnover in the next couple months. Just curious if there is any data on it.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||I agree||
Davis is probably your leadoff hitter against lefties. They may move Kinsler up and Cespedes to the two hole against righties. I don't think its the dumbest idea ever to hit avila in the two hole. High OBP and when he is not striking out will generally hit the ball to the right side.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Believe it or not, Avila||
Believe it or not, Avila isn't as bad as people make him out to be. Plus defender behind the plate, and walks a shit ton. Its nothing fancy, and he strikes out too much, but you can do worse. *ducks*

I'm think I'm finished following the talking heads on this until somebody is signed. Too many agendas, and people throwing nonsense around, followed by PANIC and a bunch of dur hurr hurr comments from trolls on twitter. Wake me up in 2015.

I'd switch Glasgow in for miller, and leave Kalis at RG. Didn't notice Miller much today, which is good, but just can't imagine him being an upgrade over Glasgow after last year.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||100% agree||
I think it has become increasingly clear since Nill and Yzerman left. This is three straight years of mind boggling stupidity in the trade market, and free agency (signing Tootoo, and Samuelson, trading a first round pick for Quincey, resigning Cleary so Nyquist would get sent down, dealing Jarnkrok for Legwand last year, and then this face plant). Its made even worse by watching Stevie Y turn Tampa into a legit East contender, and Nill turn around the Stars in one year.

1. Cheetahs are fast, and mean.
2. I'll take the GED dude anyday, at least he can party, and likes, you know, cheering at a sporting event.
3. Dave Brandon pisses all over the seat to mark his territory. It now has a gold encrusted plaque that reads "University of Michigan Athletic Director Dave Brandon's seat of champions.- Those who stay will get hemorrhoids."
4. Brady Hoke spends his whole time in the stall muttering about toughness, with little progress made, making me increasingly uncomfortable.
5. I think they can find money for both in the coffers, but I'd drop a few teams in the name of paying the people that actually make the money, if it came to that.
6. Catty Corner.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||For the life of me, I will||
For the life of me, I will never understand the mindset of a troll. Not even taking into account that you're a Notre Dame fan which, yikes. But to take the time out of your day to go to other teams message boards to gloat over a potential recruit is just a sad I can't comprehend.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Seriously love these things.||
Seriously love these things. Have been searching online for them, with no luck (pants are the only thing I can find, and they are only available in xs and s). Wouldnt mind finding the "turn down for what?" T-shirt either.

Hoke is not getting another season if they finish 6-6.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||This ^||
He is playing for 2 reasons in my mind. The first, as mentioned is he provides a net front presence on the PP with some decent hands. The second is protection for Zetterberg. In the event that the B's target Hank (they will), there is someone in the lineup capable of giving an appropriate response.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||There is no "draw" of a #1||
There is no "draw" of a #1 seed. It is the Atlantic divisons side of the bracket. They would play the winner of TB/MTL, the 2 and 3 seeds in the Atlantic.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||I think the Wings chances||
I think the Wings chances hinge on just how soon Zetterberg can get back. the B's have a significant edge on the blueline, but the Wings have a speed edge. If they find a way to steal one in Boston and Z can return in game 4ish, I could see the Wings stealing this series.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||To me, its not even close.||
I want Pittsburgh. Boston is solid all the way through their lineup, plays incredibly physical hockey, and has the (probable) Vezina winner in net. Pittsburgh has some really talented forwards, and can kill you if you let them play up a man. They do however have a goaltender who has been shaky in the playoffs previously, and a 3rd and 4th line that will struggle to matchup with the Wings bottom 6. Also, its not a sure thing that Malkin is ready for the start of the playoffs.

I also think that the ending to Six Feet Under was one of the most perfectly executed endings I have ever seen.

By this logic, Bo was merely a Red Hawk since he only worked for the University. Good grief.

They jumped the shark the second they followed Favre with a helicopter.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||The fact is, in a couple||
The fact is, in a couple years the Tigers could be in a very tough spot, payroll wise. The farm system is not exactly stocked with young talent. Max, JV, Annibal, and Miggy could take up to 100 million dollars in payroll, which makes it increasing difficult to field a competitive 25 man roster. Max is a hell of a pitcher, but I'm not convinced he is worth top 10 pitcher money after one dominant year.
