    2019 Trade Deadline

    Its wasnt foolish to give Green that NTC. He has been our best D (when healthy). Not unusual to give vet guys with Greens pedigree a NTC. And no, I don't think he would waive it for LV TB or any other destination. He still has another year on the deal. He has a young family. I dont think he moves them across the country for one year, nor do I think he would live in a separate city from them for a year. Not everything is about money, cups, or fame for these guys. For some, their family comes first. I believe Green is one of those guys.

    No . I am saying GREEN has a no trade clause in his contract (the player mentioned in ur post that I responded to). Holland can field all the offers he wants, but unless Green consents to be traded, he can't be. And no, I don't think Green waives it. He still has a year left on his contract and he had the NTC put in there specifically because he has a family and likes living in the Detroit Metro Area and doesn't want to move them.

    No. I was saying that a logjam isnt why he was scratched. If hes on the big roster but isnt playing, thats not a log jam. Theres room for him but Blash isnt playing him when he could be . If there was a true logjam at D he wouldnt be on the roster at all. He would be in GR.

    Rick Nash retires -- concussions just too much

    He also appears to be an E fan.

    Umm no. If there was a roster logjam Hronek would be in GR, not scratched, which is where he'll probably be when Daley comes back. I am ok with him getting 20 minutes a night in the AHL. He's still developing. Bring him up full time next year. Keep him in GR for the playoffs, assuming the Griffins get in.

    1/18 Firefight GDT - Red Wings @ Flames - 9:00 PM ET

    You won't have to. Come spring, that caterpillar will turn into a butterfly.

    Again. I dont know why Hronek is being benched. Maybe its for some other reason than poor play. Dunno. But a part of development is sitting players when they aren't following coaching, regardless of how well they're playing. You dont listen, you sit. Simple as that. There is absolutely a legitimate reason for doing it. May not be the case with Hronek, not saying it is. And you dont coach vets the same way you coach kids. Kids are learning, developing, you mess up, you sit. Thats how you learn. Vets are going to make mistakes too, but their development is over. You don't handle it the same way, even if its the same error. Vets learn nothing by sitting them. You can call it veteran bias if you want, but those guys have paid their dues and should get a longer leash.

    Hronek may in fact be better than E. That doesnt mean that he shouldnt be subject to coaching tho. E is what he is. He is fully developed. There really isnt any lesson to be learned by benching him. If he is playing up to his ability, he should be playing. Even if a developing player like Hronek is a better player, if he, for example, is cheating on D or missing assignments, etc. He can benefit by being benched. Even if its in favor of an inferior player. Thats part of developing a player. I'm not saying that veteran bias doesn't exist. I"m not saying Blashill never makes roster mistakes. My point is, let's not cry "veteran bias" or "Blashill sucks" everytime a young player has minutes reduced or gets scratched. Because maybe, just maybe, there might be a perfectly logical reason for it.

    I dont want him because I dont want to ever have to say the name Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen.

    Why cant it be because he wasnt playing up to standards in other areas? Theres alot more to playing D than scoring points. Its likely he was benched because he wasnt performing on the D side of the puck. Why is "Blashill sucks" always the first response?

    2019 Trade Deadline

    I dont trade Goose or Howie for anything less than a first rounder. This team has 0 goalie prospects anywhere close ro ready if it all. UFA route for a goalie? Prepare to overpay for a goalie that another team let go for a reason. The likelihood that a 2nd rounder or later turn out to be as good as Goose is unlikely. Yes his numbers fluctuate, but even then its still better than what most 2nd rounders or later turn out to be. I dont trade Jensen at all. A RH capable D for a later pick? Why? Just keep him.

    2019 Trade Deadline

    There is going to be a complete pie storm in here when KH resigns Goose instead of trading him. I mean we can hope for another Veleno to fall in our lap with that pick, but chances are that they wont be as good as Nyquist, so keep him.
