    2021 NHL Trade Deadline Thread - April 12, 2021

    the biggest problem for these teams would be their cap situation after the trade

    Pre-Draft "State of the Rebuild" Assessment

    me neither and we don´t need many. I would be happy with a top 4 LD and a second line center. Carolina might have a LD for us, as a center RNH might be an option, Yzerman will figure something out. I can´t see him waiting and losing another year. After this draft we will have 8-10 signed prospects currently not on the roster and 40! unsigned picks, including 2 1st round, 9 2nd round and 9 third round picks. We are loaded, I see no reason to keep losing.

    2021 NHL Trade Deadline Thread - April 12, 2021

    @Akakabuto do you have playoffs in sweden? when I look at the stats the players have no playoff games for two seasons, because if so Seider would be back by the start of april found it myself, last year were no playoffs because of covid, so we have to wait a little longer...

    Goalie Flame War

    they are and they are also under investigation (AfD is our far right party) Greiss can do and say whatever he wants, he is just not going to represent his country and I don´t really understand your problem. Kaepernick was not allowed to play because he knelt during your anthem, so who is banning individual freedom?

    Goalie Flame War

    We don´t have a far left goverment, our far left party has about 8%, the left party around 17%. What we have is a strong desire to be absolutely clear about the fact that there is no room for far right thinking, because we all know where this is going to lead us to. Antisemitic or racist comments or views just don´t bode well in Germany.

    Pre-Draft "State of the Rebuild" Assessment

    We will have a lot of picks and cap space to work with. A lot of teams will have the same or worse cap problems next season, so there is room for trades without giving away the few good players we have. The Perlini trade was a gamble that could have worked, for a prospect playing a position we have plenty of depth of. I bet SY would try the same again, if he sees opportunity. As for Blashill I´m torn a bit. He had to work with some of the worst rosters and it often was painful to watch, but this year we look like a team going in the right direction. He had success in Grand Rapids and I will give him a chance to prove it was the roster and not him. If there is no further progress(inching closer to .500) at seasons end, there would be no point in keeping him. Seider will have a few games in the NHL this year and next year he is going to play 20+ min. For a 19yo he´s playing a flawless,calm but still aggressiv, mature game, playing all situations, he will fix some things immediately.

    I see where you are coming from and agree to a certain extend, other example is Edmonton, but luckily as you stated yourself already, help is on the way right when Rögle´s season ends. I expect more activity this offseason, more aggressive roster upgrades through trades or FA, otherwise we would risk becoming one of the aformentioned teams.

    Seider for Captain

    he made his presence felt last year in the AHL, it really doesn´t matter to him, he´s comfortable on both sheets. But what is really frightening is when you see the frame of his dad, he is huge. If Moritz has the same build, we will see a lot of wreckage in Motown

    2/27 GDT - Red Wings at Blackhawks - 8:00 PM EST

    I love your positivity

    Seider for Captain

    Rögle has 6 games left, but that is splitting hairs. He also leads all U20 in points with 25 (5g,20a), second is Lucas Raymond with 18. He´s playing his third pro season, looks like a 10 year veteran out there and is still only 19. Next season might be the start of a new era in Detroit.

    two years are fine, it´s not just Glendenings play, more important is his being a pro, you need players like him,a workhorse, a good example in the gym, someone who can teach our young centers how to be good in the circle. Glendening surely is no irreplaceable player, but still good and worth keeping

    2021 Off-Season (Too Soon?)

    Cologne has no depth, the thing with the best two forwards is at least debatable and they have an average coach, who might be bit bigheaded and arrogant.

    our powerplay is a slap in the face. In the days when I moved around painfree and no grey hair had reached my head, that was the time when we had a pp. The struggles began under Babcock and are reaching new lows every year.

    Ryan would be nice, but Glenny has to stay. I wouldn´t even mind an "overpayment" to keep him.

    our next coach should have heard of this powerthingie,eh, power play thing, I´ve heard it´s real good stuff, you can score goals and all sorts of stuff with it, like winning games and all the other weird shxt, like going to overtime and so on...
