  1. Showcasing Gus is the goal..... thus getting a better draft pick for him.... thus improving us.... Kenny and Blash sooo tricky!! I do question why Gus isn't on the top line to be showcased
  2. Agree the tank is strong with Ottawa and to think that will result in them not even getting the pick. Although LA is doing a massive job of tankage having lost 5 in a row! I am still hoping for a "strong" showing from us after the deadline especially if Jimmy gets traded. Hopefully Bernier leads us to the promised land of high draft picks. If we can get into the 2nd spot worse case we pick 5th so I am hanging my hat on that. I prefer to increase my odds as much as possible so prefer 2nd vs 3rd. Crap part is NJ plays Sens tomorrow so we need that to go to OT min. Head to heads like that are going to be rough coming down the stretch.

    If you hate Pierre McGuire last night was almost your night...

    His reaction time wasn't super impressive...he didn't react until it hit the camera.

    2019 Trade Deadline

    Off Mlive today this posturing or actual belief? The Red Wings also don’t seem inclined to want to stockpile more draft picks. Holland pointed out the team has had 31 picks from 2017-2019 and has a number of young players already on the roster, in Grand Rapids or elsewhere in the system. “I think we’ve got a lot of future assets,” he said. That’s why he’d prefer to keep some established NHL players."

    2019 Trade Deadline

    Blue Jackets gotta be answering a lot of calls. Or perhaps people are saying screw it and make a run at Bob and Panarin on July 1 and not give up a lot of assets for a rental. and Jensen is trending up if I understand the little green arrow properly interesting times the next 7 days.

    You all noticed yesterday that a vet was sat in favor of a rookie... From here.... important points bolded well at least in my opinion. "Ericsson scratched Jonathan Ericsson was a healthy scratch to make room for Filip Hronek, up for his third stint with the Red Wings. Hronek logged 14:18 (no points, one shot, minus-1) and apparently will remain in the lineup “I thought he was good tonight,” Blashill said. “I like Fil. We sent Fil down earlier in the year, he didn’t have a great camp, needed to get better at things. I think he’s gotten better. We sent him down again, my message to him was be the best player on the ice in the American League, stand out, look like you should be in the NHL, and I think he did that to a large degree after he stopped yelling at refs. “He’s strong, he seals, he creates stalls in the D-zone, he can create offense.” Blashill wasn’t happy with his defense in Saturday’s game and explained why Ericsson was the odd-man out. “He was, for me, the worst of the six (defensemen) last night,” Blashill said. “He struggled. I think he knew that."" Hello buyout

    Official 2019 Offseason Rebuild Thread

    Don't give up lil buckaroo.... If you run the bottom 8 and calculate where they are all currently and based on a win for their games in hand the picture looks brighter for us. 3 - way tie for second place overall loser!! Plus if we lose Howard and Gus to trades we could see our chances increase ! I am going all in on the tank and will give up games like yesterday where we fight yet lose. The team isn't mailing it in totally and young guns are learning. So I am oddly okay with the current state of the team. But hey I lived through the Dead Wings era and this isn't even close to that pain so maybe that helps me cope.

    2/10 Maelstrom GDT - Red Wings @ Blackhawks - 3:00 PM ET

    Everyone above us has a game in hand AND is currently from 1 to 4 points ahead of us so even if they lose we are behind them!! Ottawa has a game in hand and if they win it goes to ROW and we are 31!! We have a really good shot at getting another GREAT piece for the rebuild. I am firing up my enthusiasm for the stretch run after the trade deadline.
