    Actually, the more I think about this, the less sure I am that there's anything to it. I'm not saying Friedman's making stuff up, just that Holland is Holland and will do absolutely everything in his power to avoid trading a roster player. Especially a former first-round pick who's young and 6'3 and plays center and plays in all situations and seems to be one of those low-maintenance Good Canadian Boys who respecks da system. And we'd be selling low on him. And we'd be selling low on him out of necessity, due to issues that Holland has created, which might not be a great look for Holland. Holland, like any and every GM, has a massive ego. I know everyone is saying we can't sign AA without making some kind of move, and I guess that's true. But I just feel like we've been here so many times, with Holland always pulling an LTIR/waivers rabbit out of his hat. This is peak Wings fan cynicism, but I almost want to say four guys conveniently hitting LTIR at the start of the season is more likely than Holland trading Sheahan to the Penguins. Holland will probably wiggle out of this. He always does. Which is fine, I guess. I'm not really in any hurry to see any one of our players traded at this time. We'll see what happens. *shrug*

    I haven't really thought about what return would make sense for us. I guess Pouliot would be a worthwhile gamble, given our needs on defense. But I'm not convinced he's much better than what we have in the system. Dunno if we should be adding to the logjam, unless it's a really impressive defenseman. Maybe just a draft pick or two? Then we'd be sending money out and not taking any back. Wouldn't free up much cap space, but every bit of space counts, especially for an organization like us that's right up against the cap ceiling.

    Good find, CRL. Friedman's about as credible as it gets, so it appears this is indeed an actual thing.

    Holland.

    I don't really buy it either. But I do think if Tavares hits the market, Holland will make a very serious push.

    Eh, we don't know what Tavares would want. Maybe it'd be all about money. Maybe us landing Dahlin/Svechnikov on top of the pretty decent stable of forwards we already have would make him think, "If you add me to this mix, this could be a solid team for the next 5+ years." Ultimately, it's all speculation and conjecture. Which would I rather have? Tough call, but I'd probably go with the kid. If we want to re-establish ourselves as a perennial contender, we're going to need a new nucleus of young franchise players. Dahlin/Svechnikov would be a big step in that direction.

    https://streamable.com/45pfi Credit to Kalamazoo-to-Cali over at Winging It In Motown. tl;dl Pierre was confident Stamkos would re-sign with the Bolts. He doesn't feel that confidence re: Tavares and the Isles. He feels that the Wings and Sabres could, hypothetically, be the biggest players. Not sure I agree with him. And, I mean, it's Pierre, so...yeah. But it's something. I guess. Dahlin/Svechnikov + Tavares? A fan can dream.
  9. Pre-Season Games

    Well, that was a thing that happened.

    Snipe! That's, what, Nyquist's fourth point on the night?
  11. Pre-Season Games

    Agreed. I just saw an opportunity to take a cheap shot at our D situation and I took it.
  12. Pre-Season Games

    Hicketts has been our best defenseman tonight. This is encouraging and troubling.

    Probably. You didn't miss much. Larkin scored a nifty goal from behind the goal line. That's about it. We struggled to string passes together, execute plays, sustain offensive pressure. Ice surface looked terrible, puck was bouncing all over the place, guys were falling over. Bruins had the much more talented lineup and it showed.

    That's what I was thinking. lol
