    LeftWinger got a reaction from 13dangledangle in Yzerman Interview with Ken Kal   
    Well I REALLY hope we dump about 3-5 players this deadline. Not that we need the cap space this year for anything, I am just tired of seeing certain players wear this jersey.  Not that we'd get anything great in return for them, but I just don't want to watch them on this team anymore.  I hope the Howard and Green "rumors" come to fruition. 
     
    IF they could be dealt, I wouldn't mind seeing Helm, Filppula and Nielsen gone as well.  Ericsson and Daley can just fade away, I hope they never put the jersey on again.  I'd like to see if there is any interest in Ehn also.  Of course all of this will not happen, and I don't want to gut GR because we'd have to bring players up, but if we could thin our team out up here sooner than the off season, it would be awesome.  
    I am wondering what Yzerman's plan is with Cholowski, rumors of him having a poor attitude does not help his case in getting back to Detroit.  Maybe a trade to Western Canada would help his attitude and he could at least get back to the NHL. He could be packaged or just sent alone for a 2nd maybe?

    This is just incredibly embarrassing, how can you just let this continue to go on at the rate it is? Blashill has to go. There is hardly any leadership to be found on this team. I really hope they do not plan on making Larkin captain either, he absolutely does not deserve it and has shown that he is entitled and full of himself. It's also too bad so many useless f***s who don't do anything (such as Abdelkader) are going to screw things up so badly for this team's progress for a few more seasons.

    if Howard stayed in, no doubt my prediction of 5 in the 1st was happening.

    I'm not at all convinced we will be signing one of the bigger name goalie UFA's yet. There will be other teams in need and goalies should realistically avoid us like the plague.
    After you get past those guys re-signing Howard is an entirely realistic scenario in some cases.
    Yzerman is a progressive thinker though so I figure he'll snag something he likes slightly more
    ... uh yeah so Yzerman doesn't plan on trading him, right...? lol
    Someone literally mentioned trading Howard yesterday buster brown

    It's wishful thinking to see 3-5 guys moved this deadline. Nobody is taking that Nielsen contract. Same with Abby. Howard has been a disaster this season. MAYBE someone trades a low pick for Green to have some depth for as run. 
    Helm and AA are probably the only two players of value we have. Even then, Helm may not have said value until next season when he is on an expiring deal. 
    Stevie will do what he can, but man, there is not much there in hopes of getting anything back outside of AA. Even then I think you wait until summer to trade him, unless the right offer comes along now like the haul we got for Tatar,

    Feds should have his number retired. Hart trophy, Stanley Cups, Hall of Fame. The guy honored his contracts. Never forced a trade. The whole "how he left" thing is stupid. He was an UFA. #raise91

    So.....as always, take this with a grain of salt, but I just got finished talking to my friend (the one who told me Yzerman was pretty much already running the team before he was hired) and he told me his source on the team (training staff) that Blashill will be gone VERY SOON, if not within DAYS and Dan Bylsma is going to be the new HC.  He did say the his source didn't know if it was going to be on an interim basis, or permanently. HE also said that Yzerman is a supporter of Bylsma, so that could factor in.  Again, it's my friend who is very close with a trainer for the team. Take it as you may.

    Sign the best winger in free agency?who the hell wants to come here now? You think taylor hall will come here ?You always pick the best player available at your position and right now lafraniere is the #1 pick  ,id have to check alot of the teams rosters but larkin would be #1 on alot of teams and a very good center at #2.
    Everyone was going nuts for larkin last season after putting up a point a game , now we’re gonna write him off cause the team for the most part is complete s*** and his numbers will obviously go down? Obviously when we start adding our #1pick +zadina full time and one year under his belt , veleno ,svechnikov etc.... his numbers will be good again . Larkin is a #1 center and a top #2c on an elite team , which we’re not at the moment but doesnt mean we won’t be good 
    if veleno progresses and stays as a C having larkin veleno rasmussen as our 1-3 center’s would be pretty good imo

    AA is not being traded. He's a 30 goal scorer having a bad season mostly because of who Blashill plays him with. You don't just trade away one of your best scorers because of 1 season. 
    and I agree, none of our UFA's will garner any interest. If we could dump Nielsen and Helm, that would be a great TDL.

    I think Andersson is a flier... that goes really well or really badly.  (See Zadina)  I think Georgiev at a minimum will be a 1B starter and matches our core age.  Note I'd not use our own second rounder... but the Washington 2nd we got for Jensen.
