Mark Madden is a joke and idiot.
I can see us trading Stall but not Letang or Orpik
Letang has been awful this series, remember that is why we lost Gonchar, his series against the Canadians was atrocious. We rode him out of town after that
Well there were other factors at play there: his contract was up, he was getting older, he wanted too much money, and his defense had been deteriorating.
I don't think anyone is seriously suggesting losing Letang because of one bad series. Same product but far different situations
I just can't wait for Joe Morrow and Simon Despres to make the NHL, why not give them a chance next year? Thoughts on this? Use this to see why:
The prospects at D are encouraging. Maybe Letang will just be another Whitney, grow him then trade him
I think the only one with a chance of making it would be Despres, Morrow and Harrington haven't even played in the AHL yet. That would be a very tough jump to make, not impossible, but very, very, unlikely
Overall, I think Madden is an idiot and the only reason he gets listeners, is because they want to here the next outrageous thing out of his mouth. Occasionally, he will bring up a good point or idea but in regards to Letang and Orpik, this was not one of those times
Madden's pretty much the same as any major-market radio jockey...he's paid to be a professional troll, and to pander to the hometown audience. I have heard him make occasionally insightful comments, but most of what he says I can't imagine is anything but a ratings grab rather than something he actually believes.
If you're forced to listen to his show for whatever reason, one way to make it more bearable is to crank the volume. You can hear him struggle for breath because he's such a fat slob.
I hope we get rid of Asham
PSD Mock Draft Vikings:
RD 1 (#11): DeVante Parker WR Louisville
RD 2 (#45): P.J. Williams CB Florida State
RD 3 (#76): Stephone Anthony LB Clemson
RD 4 (#107): Jeremiah Poutasi G Utah
RD 5 (#129): Mike Davis RB South Carolina via Buffalo (Matt Cassel)
RD 5 (#141): traded to Miami (Mike Wallace)
RD 6 (#172): traded to Buffalo (Matt Cassel)
RD 7 (#203):
RD 7 (#207): via Miami (Mike Wallace)
Hopefully Despres will be in the line-up tonight to show Bylsma that he is better than 1/2 of the defensemen on that team. Despres > Lovejoy, Engelland, Michalek
Despres = Niskanen, Martin +2
Also, I'm going to the Winterhawks game tonight, so i'm going to see if Morrow is as good as i hope. It is a game 7 so i want to see him play.
