Knuble No Longer In Grand Rapids

He's headed to Philadelphia to take a physical tomorrow and if he passes, the Flyers will sign him.  The Flyers hope Knuble will help after Hartnell broke his foot.

I don't think Knuble had a chance with the Wings this season, but if he was a defenseman, that would have been another story.

I think he would have been good in front of the net instead of Mule or Clears ... but since when do we need a forward that’s 6’ 3” 220lbs with 17 years NHL experience ??

That wasn’t toooo sarcastic was it ??

Yeah, not having Mike Knuble is the main problem the Wings should be focusing on.

Subban is not leaving Mtl.

And Mtl not dumb enough to take on those two.

Agreed.  That’s pretty much pie-in-the-sky thinking.  Besides, I’d be hard-pressed to believe that there is a GM in the league foolish enough to part with ANY significant assets to acquire a player the likes of Kyle Queasy.  You’d be damn lucky to get a bag of donuts in return.  Although, now that i think of it, I do enjoy a good donut now and then.

Kyle Queasy .. LOL ... I like it.

He played well in Colorado and LA, but for us it’s brain fart city.  Maybe he can’t handle the pressure of playing for an Original 6 team.

Miracle Trade ...
Franzen - Queasy - 2014 2nd round pick - 2015 3rd round pick
for
Erik Karlsson

its just a thought.
