    Taking Out the Trash

    Just heard a beautiful joke that I even had to laugh. What does the titanic and red wings have in common? They both are at the bottom of the Atlantic.

    Taking Out the Trash

    It's the cap era, things like that happen. Teams go from Cup winners to missing the playoffs the next season. Carolina did it in 2007 and LA in 2015.

    If the team went into the season trying to disguise a tank, they'd have never traded Datsyuk's cap hit to begin with. They wouldn't have locked up players to the long-term contracts that they have. Vanek was the only right move for a tank due to the fact he may net a late first rounder at the deadline.

    Trouba or Pick

    No. I like the idea of having a Larkin-AA-Helm 1,2,3 punch down the middle as we would likely have the fastest center's in the league, plus I think we can end up getting Trouba for less. With the right line-mates I think Larkin has a ton of potential.

    LGW!! I know this sounds bad, but I kinda hope Sheahan goes the whole season without a goal.

    Colorado went from first in their division to last in their division in one season, but not conference.

    Trouba or Pick

    I think you'd definitely have to think long and hard, but I'd have a hard time pulling the trigger on that trade straight up. The two hardest (most important) positions to fill in hockey are number one center and number one defenseman, and I think both Larkin and Trouba will get there in their respective positions. Larkin is the only guy in the organization with 1C potential in my opinion, and I'd rather overpay in other areas than give up a 20 year old with that ceiling. I still think (hope) a deal surrounding Tatar / Nyquist, high end prospect / high draft pick could be enough to get it done, closer to the expansion draft... Winnipeg may be perfectly fine going the 8 player, 1 goalie route, and protecting 4 defensemen and 4 forwards, but there's a reason most teams would prefer to go with 3 defensemen, 7 forwards, 1 goalie, it allows protection of 2 extra players. If the Jets go the former, they will likely lose a young kid like Dano, Lowry or Armia. None are likely to be huge losses, but moving a defenseman (Trouba) prior to the draft, while gaining valuable assets would allow them to protect more players. They would then be able to protect their other 3 defensemen, plus an extra 3 forwards, including one they could potentially gain in any trade...

    Living around Sabres fans my whole life, I have heard this joke directed at them a lot. I never thought it would be used at the Wings expense lol

    Trouba or Pick

    Absolutely. Not that it would happen. I'm hoping Larkin rebounds with the kind of play he showed in the first half of last season at some point. Right now it's been over a full season since he regressed, but everyone on the team regressed for the most part.

    I agree with the Sheahan underperforming comment, but not Mrazek ( I know, surprising huh?). He's been playing well for awhile now that Blash has just let him play and work out the kinks on his own. Not much he can do about bad defence and no goal scoring. There was def some bad blood between Blash and Mrazek for awhile. Hopefully that's behind them. Haha mannn. I've been laughing at those kind of jokes about the Leafs for a long time. There's an endless list of them. Dark times indeed when the Wings are starting to fall victim to the same.

    It all depends on where they finish in the draft lottery. I mean, win the lottery, then absolutely. Trade Larkin for Trouba. But beyond that, it is just creating one hole by filling another. Which is why trying to use the pick to get him may be the best option.

    we cant trade mantha aa or larkin..who else in the future do we have to score? anyone else fine. trouba might not be the best but team needs a change. i would take a top 2 dmen that puts up no points but can play ******* defense and maybe teach others how to play defense more than anything

    Goodbye Ken Holland?

    http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index.ssf/2017/02/ask_ansar_on_future_of_red_win_2.html#incart_river_index Ansar's thoughts: In regards to Assistant coaching changes... In regards to Vanek... In regards to trading either Tatar or Nyquist... In regards to trading Mike Green... In regards to young guns... So Blashill is here for the rest of year at the very least. Vanek is gone for good. Green likely staying for at least one more season. Perhaps a deal for Tatar or Nyquist will get done in offseason? Looking at you Trouba.

    I remember the rumor back in October that Chevy asked for Larkin in return. Certainly seems like attitudes have changed. Most scoffed in October. Larkin is still someone I would not move personally. He'll be a top line center at some point IMO

    Alternatively we could all be in denial at how much we suck and are coming up with excuses to feel better about it. Well, Miller was used but immediately waived when it seemed like playoffs were out of the picture. Idk I feel like there really is a trend. Pure speculation but I feel like they knew bad days were coming but tried to win if they could and as soon as s*** was hitting the fan they waived Miller and scratched Ott at times and started actively using certain players in positions they prefer to develop them around.

    Gustav Nyquist Hearing

    I agree with the majority of this with the exception of the bold part. History has to play a part in suspensions. The analogy you used of "Are you going to give someone a slap on the wrist for assault just because they haven't done it before?" of course should not be the case, however, if you have a person who is a repeat offender and has assaulted multiple people, IMO should be punished more then a person who is a first time offender. I think the big issue here is that the NHL does not hand out harsh enough punishments, so players keep doing it AND they treat star players differently then the average player. I have said it before, if you want to take the crap out of the game you need harsher consequences. For example, if you want to take head-shots out of the game, make it a 41 game suspension for elbows to the head. Guarantee that cleans up the game dramatically. Problem is the NHL and NHLPA will never agree to something like that as the PA will fight it thinking it is unfair to players (which is ironic), and the NHL will not want to risk losing money if it happens to stars.

    Too much analysis. Showing loyalty to Cleary wasn't a big deal in my opinion. He didn't hold anyone back, same with Abby. All our young players are either here now, or had their chance. With Datsyuk and Zetterberg, the Wings Management we're going to go for it to try and win Championships. Once one of them retired, it would be time to rebuild. Datsyuk's gone, so we are in the rebuild stage.

    Goodbye Ken Holland?

    I'm getting a little tired of hearing about how great Hakkan Andersson is. Yeah, he got some good players who turned out to be a hell of a lot better than they were projected to be when not as many teams were investing much money scouting the backwaters of Europe. Since Franzen, who has he dug up that turned into anything special? People complain that Holland is resting on his laurels and getting a pass because of what he did years ago, why is Andersson still considered some scouting god?

    And it only took me 10,932 tries! I think my percentage may still be better than the Wings power play...ah, nope, I forgot they got one the other night! I'm slightly behind!

    The Red Wings organization has become one big circle jerk. And the circle is a tire. And the tire is on fire. And Trevor's interviewing someone's parents because Michigan.
