Inconceivable, both Nielsen AND Filppula were in.

Dare I say two good games vs. the top team in the league.

And many ugly loses had RW with both Nielsen and Filppula in?

After every loss people blame Blashill followed by Mantha and Greiss. So I am here to say that Blashill had a great game plan and both Mantha and Greiss were great today.

Did Schevy clear waivers?

MC, yes he did. I was actually hoping he would get picked up!

unless the capt. scores a slam dunk, moving Glendening would be a mistake, his work ethic will be an example for the fresh faces that are due to arrive.

wings passing remains atrocious.

wings cannot win a corner battle = constant turnovers.

greiss is a good goalie, wings just need more scoring to support him.

somebody spoke to this team after the 7-1 loss to the preds on march 25..

hoping all had a pleasant easter sunday

RT, I have the same observation. The only way I would trade LG is if they have an agreement that he’s coming back next year. They would really miss his leadership. From being a walk on, then captaincy, free agent, in the NHL in a short period of time and now assistant captain. His determination should be a model for everyone who puts on the Winged wheel!!

Glendening is a UFA and there is no guarantee he signs here again. Take what we can get and move on. Same with Helm. Did you see that break away he had and made no moves and shot it into the goal tenders chest. Helm regularly does the same thing. Erne is the type of player I want to keep. Hustles, is younger, and has decent hands.

Erne struck me as a useful guy to bring back
in spite of him struggling so much last season,
because every team needs a younger Abdelkader type:
a big body who can skate well enough to hit people a lot.
He had the one decent season in Tampa but I sort of assumed
maybe that was more luck or playing on a really offensively deep team.
I doubt he peaks where Abby did, unless we slot him with another Pav and Z,
but it’s nice to see an unexpected bright spot.

I still think (hope?) Svechnikov can be part of the future.
But he’d have to be one patient, determined kid not to want a fresh start elsewhere after this season. How they use him after a couple of veteran forwards have hopefully fetched picks will say a lot.

Glendening isn’t a guy you give away just to give away for anything.
But whether he even wants to re-sign at a reasonable price will say a lot
about how much he’d like to spend the next 2-3 seasons, experiencing a different city and a contending team.

Well, not sure if it was a slip of a tongue, but in the article recently they basically said Glen is not coming back.

IMO… Wings have to trade someone, unless they intend to bench vets not named Flip and Neilson so we can get some kids more playing time up after we’re officially eliminated.  If that means Stevie gives away a player for less than what we think he is worth, he might have to do that.

With Taxi Squads and trade deadline, I guess the value for Evegeny is not high at all, interesting, thought he has looked pretty good.
