  1. Couldn’t care less about his ability on the field. Don’t want that in the locker room.
  2. “Watch him play” is a lazy argument, and implies that, despite being a fan of the team, I don’t watch them. Coyle’s “Want to” isn’t the problem. He’s as hard a worker as they come off the ice in terms of his preparation; does he play as physical all the time as you’d like to see a guy his size play? Probably not, but that’s the problem with this entire team. Coyle isn’t the issue and his contract isn’t some albatross that handcuffs the team. He’s paid like a second/third line player and that’s where his production falls too. 11 goals in a season where he missed 16 games due to a leg injury and was limited by injuries to both wrist for a good part of the rest of the year is not awful. He was over a .5ppg player; production fitting the contract he’s signed to.
  3. Coyle played most of last season hurt. An excuse, maybe, but he just had surgery on both wrists and was barely able to hold on to the stick by the end of the year. From the sound of it, he probably shouldn’t have been playing. Calling him soft or saying he doesn’t work hard really is nonsensical.
  4. Hugely responsible for the drafting success the Predators have had. He’s basically run it for them the last nine years.
  5. A little overkill... But yes, Koivu has a no move clause.
  6. Wouldn’t say RT is more important than RG at all; RG is often left one on one with the best interior pass rusher.

    Let’s hope there is nothing lasting from the foot injury.
  8. aSK anything: 5.0: Designated Steve-vivor

    My favorite part is that the players brought up for the Lions... were all on the team last year and aren’t young players that are likely to see their level of play increase... so what exactly puts the Lions over the hump and better than the 9-7 team they have been the last two years?
  9. CWood, you mention Conklin’s bloodlines... what are you referring to? His younger brother is a transfer walk on at CMU. As far as I know, he’s got no football bloodline other than that... are you referring to Jack? What am I missing here?
  10. Vikings select...Mike Hughes, CB, UCF

    The consensus view may have taken into account his off the field trouble.

    Potential true NT depth behind Linval.

    I think saying he was a potential first round talent without the off field issues is a bit over blown. Top 50 I could buy, but he was always more of a second or third round pick to me. And @Boda, why would you turn a potential #2 corner into a safety? When you already have four corners who you can project into a similar role and the player you’re taking about has the size and tackling ability that Hill has. That’s why. Sendejo is far from having the spot “locked down” he’s a good player who progressed from poor to good, but he’s certainly not locked into the position given that his cap hit is potentially detrimental to us re-signing more core pieces. Kearse has shown nothing in terms of his ability as a starter and hasn’t been able to supplant Harris as the team’s backup safety option. Harris is a good cover safety and has shown to be good on blitzes, but his tackling isn’t great. Sure, we could draft a safety when we likely have to next year... or we could already have one developing in the pipeline in Hill. I’m not saying it’s the best, or even the most prudent, move to make Hill a safety. I’m saying, with his skill set as a tackler and his ability to sift through garbage to make plays, he has the size and ability to be a very good safety in our scheme. Given that he’s got four number one or two draft picks in front of him currently, and we are likely going to need to ditch Sendejo next year for cap reasons, safety might be his best shot to see the field. Given how immensely talented you view him to be, isn’t that what you want? For him to see the field as early as possible? its an option worth exploring given the current construction of the team on the back end.
