  1. Dam losing Sheahan screwed our offense
  2. Ryan Sproul traded for Matt Puempel

    You know Sproul cleared waivers right? It's a AHL for AHL trade. If he was that good someone would have picked him up.
  3. Sheahan and a 5th for Wilson and a 3rd

    There wasn't. Kronwall did fairly well in that 2014 season. We got complacent imo.
  4. Sheahan and a 5th for Wilson and a 3rd

    I know it's been 5 years since Lidstrom, but in those initial years since he left we looked promising overall. D, Z and Howard seemed to be carrying. Which probably made the management complacent. I think the reality set in around the 2015-16 season when Tampa just outclassed the hell out of us and then it kept sinking in the following two seasons. Probably because the players I mentioned could no longer carry the team.
  5. Ya'll gotta realize this organization does not see Ericsson the same way we do. They actually appreciate Ericsson for his hard work.

    I feel as though if it was easy, it would have happened a lot more often. Maybe the asking price for some of these players is high? And the risk:benefit ratio might not be appealing for the Wings. Duchene isn't a defenseman but from what I read the asking price is Alternatively with the defenseman we have coming up in our system, maybe they don't see the Fabbros, Beans, Chabots as much more of an upgrade than just waiting it out for 3 or so years till Cholowski, Hickets etc are up. We've gotten rid a lot of players we don't need. We've kept our picks and kept our potential future stars. I think they're waiting a few more years to see these defenseman they have drafted to pan out. It's a rebuild from within and it looks to me like it's a waiting game.

    No. But I think it’s hard.
  8. Sheahan and a 5th for Wilson and a 3rd

    Tatar and Nyquist have cap hits and haven't as good as most people thought originally. We would probably have to give up a high pick with them. Svechnikov isn't an NHL player he would probably be in a package. So who would we get in return?
  9. Sheahan and a 5th for Wilson and a 3rd

    Like who? and for what defenseman? I just don't see who would come and who would go. It would be easier to drop Larkin/Mantha for a top D young player.
  10. Sheahan and a 5th for Wilson and a 3rd

    I mean... out of the 31 GMs, how many actually do big trades.. We don't have a Drouin or Panarin to give up. I mean we have Larkin or Mantha basically. That's it. Mrazek wasn't even taken for free by Vegas. No one offer sheeted AA, not even the KHL would give him the money he wanted. We just don't have the personell to make big moves. I mean he's not wrong. They are hard. If you want to make major ones. Like I said, how many of the 31 GMs actually make blockbuster trades without having pieces worth it?

    I've been seeing a lot of people post this lately. What does that even mean? Holland has done 6 trades in 2017 alone.

    You're right. I'm starting to wonder about our scouts ability. It seems as though Holland keeps having to clean up their busts with these trades he's been doing. Interesting to see your support of Holland. You may be onto something about the scouts doing a poor job though.
