    I think on back-to-backs you almost always have to switch up the goalie, so I think it's a good call to put Jimmeh in. Green being injured is not good Predictions: - Bertuzzi continues to ruffle feathers. - Jensen scores leaving XO as the only guy who hasn't scored - If we win people will complain about the team being too good. If we lose, people will complain about how bad the team is.

    Seasons greetings everyone! Its that time of year again. Everyone's favorite holiday, Leftwinger's Annual Trade Deadline Meltdown Spectacular! That magical time of year where we get to witness the miracle of a grown man lose his mind when his favorite sports team fails to live up to his insane expectations! This year looks to be extra special because Lefty Claus fully believes that Holland will trade no less than 8 roster players. This feels like Christmas, New Years, 4th of July and my birthday all wrapped into one! In order to get everyone in the holiday spirit this year, I thought it might be fun to get some wagers going. Below you'll see a list of the most probable reactions we'll see from Lefty, along with the odds of each outcome that ive scientifically calculated based on past behavior and current level of his delusion (unusually high this year). If you expect an outcome that you dont see listed, please post it below and i'll calculate the odds. Happy Holidays! Epic rant demanding that Holland be fired - 2:1 Promise to quit following Red Wings forever - 3:1 Burn all of his jerseys in a dumpster - 4:1 State his desire for Holland's dead body to be found in a ditch - 6:1 Quit his job in order to stalk and harass Holland's cat full time - 7:1 Joins a suicide cult that believes the only way that the Red Wings will win the lottery and draft Dahlin is for the entire group to ritualistically shave each other's balls and then hang themselves while masturbating to photoshopped images of Tippett and Hague in Red Wings jerseys - 10:1 Quadruple murder-suicide of his wife and children, while chanting over and over, "Born and raised in South Detroit, Born and raised in South Detroit, Born and raised in South Detroit, Born and raised in South Detroit" - 15:1 Massive psychotic break resulting in a persistent catatonic state which requires around the clock psychiatric care, yet somehow he will be back on the forum before next season and will deny anything happened and will laugh it off whenever someone brings up his well documented history of public meltdowns - 25:1 Calmly acknowledges that his expectations were probably a little high and that while he is disappointed we couldn't move out more big contracts, he knows that Holland did the best he could and it's not the end of the world - 1,000,000,000,000:1

    I agree. It's amazing how low most all Red Wings fans are on DeKeyser. Some even go as far as to say they'd eat half his salary for a 7th round draft pick. I would trade DeKeyser, but it would have to be worth it. DD isn't near as bad as fans make it seem, and on a better team, I think he's a legit top 3/4 defenseman. And like you said, he's getting paid as such.

    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...

    I dont trade DD. He's paid quite comparably to other top 4 D-men, and with a good coach I think he will play at that level. We need top 4 D-men, I'd rather not trade any away unless its for a better top 4 D-man.

    AA has a lot of speed, but is overrated on this forum. He wasn't a great scorer in Grand Rapids and hasn't been putting up big numbers in Detroit either. He's not irreplaceable.

    It's embarrassing hockey to watch, and it obviously starts from horrible coaching. The plays they make in their own end while trying to clear the zone are beyond ridiculous, I saw at least 5 behind the back passes to nobody by a wings defenseman tonight in the 30 minutes of the game I watched. No we are not Tampa bay, they're way beyond us in every facet of the game. Its the stupid plays we make over and over again that cost us puck possession we have. It totally looks like on most nights these guys are throwing sh*t at the wall and hoping it sticks, and anything Ive heard from Blashill confirm his process absolutely sucks

    Karlsson on the move?

    I'd love to have Karlsson on this team. What team wouldn't? But I wouldn't pay the price it's going to take to get him here for only one guaranteed season. I'd much rather go after him as a UFA in 2019. We need to build our blueline through the draft (Dahlin?) and trading for young, unproven, high potential prospects (Foote?)... F*** giving up the farm for what could potentially be a rental.

    I think Holland going to a Seattle expansion would be really bad for us. Remember how much staff Nill and Yzerman took with them when they jetted? This would be 100 times worse. It's an expansion so they literally need to fill EVERY position. And Holland is a long-tenured GM, not an assistant GM. He has the clout to pull a lot of staff with him. Losing Yzerman and Nill were both pretty big wounds for this franchise, letting Holland go to an expansion would turn Detroit into a shell organization. When it's time for Holland to go, the best thing for the Red Wings will be if he retires, the worst will be him taking over an expansion franchise.

    Holland had his chance to ride off into the sunset as one of the greatest hockey gms of all time. This last contract doomed him. Now everyone knows that Holland is a giant facade and took credit for the work of others.

    That's good news? There's no confirmation there will be a Seattle franchise, and even if there is, it would be a few years before they'd actually get a team. That means a few more years of Ken Holland. He should step down after the season.

    I say we offer Howard for Elliot and a 2nd round pick.

    Yeah, sort of understandable - but there is some absurdity in it. I think there's a fine balance in there somewhere: you never want a group of players who are just lay down and be fine with losing. I think these games are as much about young guys development (Larkin, AA, Mantha, etc) as much as getting a good draft position. We're 7th from the bottom. That would give us a chance at a very good player. Where you're going to fall in the picks is dependant increasingly on the lottery since the odds are more even now. We finished 6th from the bottom last year and end up with the 9th pick. Dallas, who were 7th last year (our current spot) ended up with the 3rd overall pick. Philly got the 2nd overall, but finished 12th from the bottom. And, in fact, none of the bottom 3 teams last year even picked in the top 3 spots. I'm just rooting for the guys and hope to see good signs and development for the future. Trading Green - and maybe others - will likely lead to a sinking in the standings and better draft odds, as well as that inevitable effect it has on players once playoffs are completely out of the picture.

    He’s been good not because the other suck but because he’s individually been performing well. You can really tell who watches games and who looks at the box score.

    Its called coaching. "Doubles" was cheating defensively on his shifts. When ur a young player still learning the sport and you do that, you gonna sit. Good or bad, that's what coaches do.

    This is the only thought required. It's Eklund. The fact that he seems to expect Holland to trade Green AND AA for a goalie prospect kind of speaks for itself, don't you think?

    No sorry needed! The fact we were elite for so long makes it sting sooo much more though. Having Blash on the bench and Holland backing him up in every way just turns the knife and makes it so much easier to turn elite b*tcher...What Holland does at (or by) the deadline will solidify my feelings for him going forward.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to seem like I disagree. Quite the contrary. I was just commenting on the quality of the bitching, by everybody. We deserve to be elite at SOMETHING!

    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.

    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.

    Vanek trade Smith trade Jurco trade Datsyuk deal to Phoenix Riley Sheahan trade Steve Ott trade Kindl trade This is all for the most part within a matter of only a year and half. More to come this deadine probably. All of them have benefitted us in some way.
