  1. Dallas's pick would need to be something like Nyquist or Tatar plus the #9. Depending on who goes 1-2 it might be worth it Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  2. Sure right after I get back from my date with Emma Watson and Zoe Saldana Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  3. Should have started happening 2 or 3 years ago instead of waiting until they had to clear waivers.
  4. I was in the hospital with chest pains, got charged $50 for two aspirin. That's not price gouging? Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  5. Any of the young forwards for Myers is wrong. Any of them or Cholowski plus picks other than the #9 or lesser players for a top young D is right. Not hard. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  6. If hospitals and phamacuetical companies weren't allowed to price gouge we wouldn't have issues with health care costs Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  7. I don't put little value on prospects, I just think that you need to be willing to move them in the right deal, and that doesn't just mean offers you can't refuse. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  8. Why would Enstrom waive his NMC unless he was unhappy there? Why take that chance? A top 10 pick and a first round pick from 2 years ago tearing up the AHL playoffs is a huge price, no way they'd need to trade both for just Trouba. Almost every time a player is rumored to be available we hear "the team is expecting (insert huge package here*) and they almost never get that much. Schultz only returned a 3rd rounder. Larson brought Hall, but that looks like addition by subtraction for the Oilers. Jones for Johansen Blowmeester brought a conditional first, but with a 4th and 2 lesser prospects. Compare those to something like Svechnikov/AA with a 2nd and Jensen/XO. That's a pretty good package. *That's what she said
  9. If Trouba is available, the Jets will likely want either a higher end D prospect or a good young forward in return. Unless they like Cholowski, Detroit doesn't have the D. I don't think they'd want Tatar or Nyquist without something else really good going back. Of the younger guys I'd prefer the one who hasn't proven he's an NHL player. I'd only move Larkin I'd it was more or less a one for one swap, because he's the only potential high end center. Mantha and AA have shown NHL ability, but if the Jets wanted one I'd do it. I'd only include the #9 pick if they also sent their first plus another pick. Insert any other young D potentially available because of the expansion draft. The older or less proven they are the lower the price I'd pay. Myers wouldn't get Svechnikov​, Mantha, or Larkin from me. Maybe AA straight up, but I'd probably want something else. The bottom line is Detroit has lots of wingers and only one D with top pair potential. Trade what you have for what you need. Farmer Bob has a lot of corn, Farmer Joe has wheat. Bob gives Joe 40 bushels of corn and gets 40 bushels of wheat and both are happy. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  10. It wouldn't take Svechnikov and the #9, unless their first was coming back too. They have to trade him or Myers or lose one for free to Vegas. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  11. Most people thought the same about Sproul, Marchenko, XO, and Jensen.
  12. I say he said he wouldn't do Svechnikov for Trouba. You said he didn't. I quote his post where he said exactly that. But I'm dense. Gotcha. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  13. Right here. Wouldn't trade Svechnikov for Trouba.
  14. From Kahn: http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index.ssf/2017/05/post_25.html#incart_river_index There’s a few teams with potential protection issues on defense, including Minnesota, Nashville, Anaheim, Winnipeg and the New York Islanders. If the Wild opt to protect three defensemen, Ryan Suter and Jared Spurgeon surely will be two of them. That leaves one spot for either Jonas Brodin, Matt Dumba or Marco Scandella. Dumba’s name surfaces in more trade speculation than the others. Nashville is another club with a decision to make. The Predators might elect to protect four defensemen (P.K. Subban, Roman Josi, Ryan Ellis and Mattias Ekholm) and just four forwards. If not, they’ll need to move a good defenseman. The Jets might opt to protect four defensemen as well, unless they make a trade. Dustin Byfuglien and Tobias Enstrom have no-movement clauses and Winnipeg isn’t going to expose Jacob Trouba or Tyler Myers. The New York Islanders might need to move a defenseman, perhaps Calvin de Haan, who is rumored to be on the Red Wings’ radar. Johnny Boychuk must be protected due to his no-movement clause (unless he agrees to waive it) and the two other spots could go to Nick Leddy and Travis Hamonic. The Ducks have a plethora of defensemen. They figure to protect Cam Fowler, Hampus Lindholm and Sami Vatanen, assuming Kevin Bieksa waives his no-movement clause (he might as well, since Vegas won’t take a 35-year-old). That would leave Josh Manson exposed.
  15. If someone won't trade Svechnikov for Trouba, they're out of their mind. Nyquististhefuture wouldn't. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
