    @LeftWinger Do we need to re-post your past "incidents". Do we?

    Hands down the worst GM in the league, which is exactly why Holland should be calling him every chance he gets. Draisaitl for Tatar seems pretty fair to me...

    Here's how we make up for lost draft picks... Trade Green to either Toronto for 1st/Liljigren or Tampa for 1st/Foote Trade Tatar to LA for Vilardi. Too bad Vegas or Florida are in play for someone from us!

    Totally a gangster. Wysh on what we're sellin': Likely available: D Mike Green (32, UFA, $6M); G Petr Mrazek (26, RFA, $4M); Xavier Ouellet (24, 2019 UFA, $1.25M); LW/RW Tomas Tatar (27, 2021 UFA, $5.3M); LW/RW Gustav Nyquist (28, 2019 UFA, $4.75M, no-trade clause). Would they actually deal... Andreas Athanasiou (23, RFA, $1,387,500)? The speedy winger is putting up the best per-game numbers in his career, and is coming off a bitter contract impasse with GM Ken Holland. Deadline game plan: Trading Green. There's going to be a robust market for the veteran, puck-moving defenseman, with the Lightning and the Maple Leafs among the suitors -- two teams that could end up facing each other in Round 1 of the playoffs. If the Wings can't pull at least what the Blues got for Kevin Shattenkirk last season, it'll be a whiff. Keep in mind that wherever Mrazek ends up for the rest of the season, that team can walk away from him in the summer during arbitration. Tatar is, for my money, a better player than Nyquist, and has no trade protection. But he also has the higher average annual value on his contract and the longer commitment. Not for nothing, but Dallas GM Jim Nill and Tampa Bay GM Steve Yzerman were with Detroit when these two were drafted. Best-case scenario: The Wings find there's a bidding war for Green, and get above-market value for him.

    This. Ericsson also gets far more tradable come this time next year.

    Lol. Well Kronwall only has a year left and Ericsson has two. Not terrible to transition for Cholo and crew to take over

    This is Lefty to a tee. No offense, man, but... Every. Single. Year. All of those moves make sense. I wish Helmer's contract was a year (ideally two) year(s) shorter. I don't disagree with revamping the D roster completely... but Kronner and Ericsson aren't going anywhere... so there's no true revamping of the d-squad AND I don't understand moving the one guy who might actually turn it around. I don't think he sucks SO BADLY that he's beyond a quick u-turn... and I do think putting him with a proper partner makes him at least a little more palatable even when he's playing poorly. Lol. You guys are funny. I mean, I know you don't believe it, but even thinking Holland has the skill at this point to pull of Tavares and Karlsson, plus this team having the luck to draw #1. Just ain't gonna happen mates. Hell, we're more likely to make the goddamned playoffs than any of our wet dream fantasies about free agency and the draft happening.

    Kings had been interested in Phaneuf for some time now. Gaborik is probably going to retire. Doesn't really set the market value for Green, but it's the first big trade domino to fall, which is good.

    This trade would be a big deal if this was like, ten years ago.

    Anyone who has Phaneuf on their team always ends up getting fleeced. The guy is a trash defenseman that's overpaid and brings bad luck whereever he goes.

    I get that, and I don’t have an issue with trading eberle, my issue is the return. He should have garnered more then Strome.

    False. This guy lists 5 players who might be moved, you list 8 who "must go". Quite the difference there. We're not shipping out 8 players at the deadline. That isn't realistic. We'll likely see two of them go, maybe three. So yes, yours is a fantasy.

    For the record, I dont think any of the 3 things will happen, but I will say this. IF we get Dahlin which is a BIG if, I do think it changes things for us in that big time players would be more likely to come here. With E having a resurgence this year, if I were Holland I would seeing if I could move him.

    Cap space and revamping the D roster completely. Making a pitch for Tavares. Making a pitch for Karlsson. Anything that gets us cap space. No retention. I personally think Dekeyser officially sucks (unless he’s a hockey genious that can change his game). But my opinion doesn’t matter bcuz I’m sure Holland thinks he’s a decent player. But I bet Holland is considering the trade to save cap

    One encouraging thing I heard from the broadcast last night is when Holland said he'll be looking for Draft Picks, Prospects and Cap Space at the deadline. Let's get it done! Green, Howard, Mrazek, Nyquist, Tatar, Ericsson, Helm, XO! Let's go!

    Hronek

    As you've said in the past, we're certainly due for a nice success story on the back end. Maybe Hronek is the one? Filip Hronek: Future Red Wings Defenseman [The Hockey Writers] Just speaking anecdotally, I love his positive attributes, love the way he plays the game. Really tantalizing combination of supreme skating ability and gamebreaking offensive prowess -- the kind of package and potential we as Wings fans want in the pipeline. To my eye, he's looking more like an AHL veteran than a rookie; for someone with only one OHL season under his belt, he's surprisingly assertive and effective in driving play, creating plays, finishing plays, making his teammates better. IMO, he's our #1 defense prospect right now.

    Phenuef has 4 years left, and for LA has a caphit of 5.25 Gaborik also has 4 years left for Ott, and has a caphit of 6.5 (if you consider the 1.75mil being retained. I take Pheneuf at 5.25 over Gaborik at 6.75 every time. Are Thompson or Shore the difference makers here? I know nothing about them.

    Clearly I meant the one bad game during his past great stretch. Without that game he allowed 9 goals in 6 starts with two shutouts and a 1.30 GAA. This is Jimmys best game since the 13th of January. Take it easy now.

    Crap for crap. No winner here. Phaneuf cost the Sens a lot awhile back, but he isn’t worth near that anymore. Never was.

    Even more impressive considering his slow start this season. He's currently on a 5 game point streak with 7 points (3 goals, 4 assists) in that time. Future top 4 defenseman in Detroit. He may even get a look this season (after the deadline).
