Dangle’s Cards: Who are you watching during the lockout?


Lots of players are heading to play for new teams during the lockout. Which ones are you watching?

  • Carol

    I’ve got my eyes on Rick Nash who’s playing for the HC Davos in the Swiss league. I have to admit, my heart skipped a bit when i heard the news that he injured his shoulder. Someone even floated that he might be concussed? Glad he’s listed as day-to-day. Also, i noticed that Nash is playing with Joe Thorton in the Swiss league…as they did in the 05′ lockout, also for the same team. Awww.. #LockoutBuddies

    I will be following future Leafs and should be Leafs this year in the AHL.

    I’d like to see what a healed Joe Colborne can do this year. Kadri should really step up, this is his training camp essentially for the Leafs. It will be interesting to see where Frattin’s game is post injury, he was on fire before getting hurt. Ashton needs to be productive as well, I didn’t feel he should have been in a Leafs jersey last year so we’ll see what he has to offer in the AHL.

    I have also been watching the OHL’s Oshawa Generals. Strong start to the season and it makes me wonder even more why Burke selected Tyler Biggs over now teammate Boone Jenner – 12 points in 5 games to Biggs 6 in 5.

    JJ card please.

  • I´m watching Marcel Goc back here in Germany with the Adler Mannheim, and of course the craziest singings Simmonds and Stewart in Crimmitschau (Germany 2)

    I hope Goc can do something special with his old team, hopefully after that he could step up some more for Florida…

    Great Video´s Steve, keep it up!

    Jack Johnson card would be nice 🙂

  • I will definitely see the most of Leafs prospect Stuart Percy with the Steelheads since I have seasons tickets.
    I may watch the CSKA vs Spartak on Thursday to see how Mikhail Grabovsky does on the big ice. Mainly trying to follow Canadian players in the KHL and not so much NHLers.

  • FlareKnight

    I’d have to say Scrivens on the Marlies. Hoping to see him have a great season to give some hope for his jump to the NHL…..whenever that happens.

    And yeah, a Jack Johnson card would be pretty cool.

  • Eric Gallant

    I’m going to be watching Tuukka Rask the closest over the course of the lockout. It’ll be interesting to see what the Bruins do with Rask now that they have the stud of a prospect in Malcolm Subban.

    I’d prefer the Tommy Wingels card. Love the kid.

  • I’ve been following Tyler Biggs as he plays for Oshawa and I’ve from Belleville. This is his first season in the OHL and I want to see his skill set at a higher level. I’m going to a game in Oshawa against the Bulls on Monday so it should be fun =)

  • Hey Dangle,

    I’ll be watching Nikolai Kulemin along with Nail Yakupov.

    Nikolai Kulemin because I want him to have a better season than last season, although I still think he had a fine season in the NHL because of his penalty kill skills, the plays he set up for Grabovski, and so much more. I’d still like to see him bounce back in the goals category, and produce more than he did in the NHL last year, like the previous year before last year where he put up decent #’s. I find him scoring in the KHL isn’t that much different than the NHL, considering he’s still playing with high level pros.

    Nail Yakupov because he’s in the KHL playing against pro’s for the first time. This kid is expected to be the next thing, but he has to show it somehow, and playing in the KHL can show it if he does his job well as expected.

    I really want the NHL as I prefer that more than anything else, but the KHL, OHL, AHL, and whatever it may be, is fine for me.

    Thanks, I’d really appreciate the Jack Johnson card because he’s one of my favourite players outside the Leafs (No I’m just not saying that).

    Thanks again,

    AHL – Marlies.

    Specifically I will be watching how Gardiner’s game progresses, as he’s an exciting player for the Leafs’ future.

    Also, Jack Johnson’s card.

  • AdamVac821

    I have closely been watching alex ovechkin. He came off a poor yet productive season. But with a new coaching staff and team he thinks differenly and has done awesome for the dynamo. Hopfully he will have the same intensity and offensive fire once the lockout is over. Also i hope to seem him come back to the nhl since he made that comment about quitting the nhl. one other guy has gotta be filip forsberg. He was 16th overall (should of gone higher) and has been dominating the swedish leagues. He is a huge prospect to loook out for and i cant wait to see him in the nhl

  • Uzair

    I’m watching some of the SEL guys because it’s a neat style of hockey. Definetely not as physical but the passing is there and the PP’s are fun to watch. Not that many players there yet but they’re starting to sign on, Steen is already on Modo and Enstrom supposed to sign on. Brynas have Detroit prospect Jarnkrok who’s awesome pretty awesome plus Franson signed on and they have this great American dman named Gunderson who’s fun to watch and I’m confident will be in the NHL at some point.

    Obviously hoping for some AHL games to be streamed or on TV because teams like Oklahoma and Houston (Minnesota’s affiliate with Granlund/Coyle/Brodin/Phillips etc) are gonna be good to watch this year.

    Going for the JJohnson card!

  • ASblendorio71

    Daniil Zharkov, hes a stud and plays for my bulls! Also Mike Murphy, the goalie for Spartek. He was drafted by Carolina but never get to play because of Ward. I knew him personally and wish he’ll get a chance to show Carolina what their missing

    Id prefer the Jack JOhnson but winning anything is cool enough with me
