  1. I'm sure some of you have seen this before but this is absolutely hilarious! Gosh, we're gonna miss #5...
  2. Haha yeah that'd be the best case scenario. I hope it happens.
  3. Not true. Get one of them and get a 3rd team in on it for another one. It's possible. Not probable but that's not the point. The point is we need to make a trade. And even if we can only trade for one, that's fine. I'd much rather have Yandle than both Doan and Semin.
  4. Calling Ken Holland... Please forgive the fans who bet the bank on Parise and Suter coming to Detroit and have thus turned into pessimistic pansies(aka Cindy Crosby types) now that they have decided to sign with the almighty Minnesota Wild! It's mind boggling the lack of faith I have seen throughout Yahoo, ESPN and LGW boards in Hockeytown's most successful GM. And arguably one of pro sports best GM's of all time. If there was a class and Ken Holland was the teacher, you can bet your bottom dollar I'd be sitting in the front row. I don't care if it's about how to properly roast marshmallows..the guy will show you how to make one damn good s'more! And say what you want about my inundated loyalty toward Kenny H but one thing is clear...the man knows hockey, he lives, sleeps and breathes it and he's done a damn good job of making this team competitive for the last two decades. That being said, it's only a matter of time before he uses the big bucks from Mr. I to light up your eyes and realize this team will STILL be a contender. We all know the names still out there...Doan, Semin, and uhhh(crickets) yeah that's pretty much it. There is no top tier defenseman. There is no Brett Hull or Luc Robitaille and the best method of action at this point is, TRADE! So I'm not going to act like I know all the salary cap lingo and what contracts match up to make these deals possible. I'll leave that up to Ken Dawg. But the rumors are everywhere. Rick Nash wants to be traded, wings show interest...Ducks will listen to offers for Ryan....Larry Murphy and Chelios say they'll suit up if the Wings need a 5th or 6th D-man etc. okay that's just ridiculous but you get the point. Don't you? The best way to send some shock waves through the hockey nation and get the winged wheel in position for some future cup runs is by trade. And Ken to the H-town down, is going to make something happen! Get the player who IMO is an even better choice to fill the void left by the great #5. Keith "no scandle" Yandle and go get Bobby "two first name" Ryan! Send some young guys, Smith, Emmerton, a couple first rounders, cash considerations, Franzen, Filppula whatever you have to do to get them in the motor city. What you'll have is a 25 year old Ryan and a 25 year old Yandle set for the next decade. You still have Dats and Z and with a little money left over you could even sign Doan. We all know it's time to shake it up and if you can score these two then hopefully the Parise and Suter lovers will take comfort in "as close you'll get". Because that would be the next best thing to Zach and Ryan if not better in the long run. Take it or leave it.
  5. I think wings have to do something and if they don't then they would seriously jeopardize missing the playoffs for the first time since Pretty Woman was in theaters. They would need a ton more out of Helm and Ericsson and Jimmy Howard could face 40 shots a game resulting in a 3.02 gaa and 4th in the central lol. I get what you're saying and yeah they could see what the young guns have to offer but imo, it'd be disaster. Holland hasn't drafted well in recent years.
  6. So your lineup means the wings would trade Franzen or Filp for Yandle? I posted that the other day on an ESPN message board and was ripped apart. Sure it'd be tough to lose the Mule and Filp but it's worth it for a cornerstone D-man like Yandle. Especially if we replace them with Doan and Semin which is exactly what I said the other day. Looks like the smarter wings fans are on here.
  7. Then what's he worth? If Hudler is going for 4/16 then it seems reasonable to offer Semin at around 3/18?? He's much better than Happy Hudler!
  8. How much do you guys think Semin is worth? I don't see them paying more than 7 mil tops per season and is he even worth that? I think his production would increase substantially here in Detroit especially playing with D and Z. But for that kind of money I would expect at least 30 or 35 goals out of him. 10+ PPG and 70+ pts.
  9. I think it'd be a better choice to explore options for a top tier D man like Yandle(if they're even willing to trade him) If they are, I'm certain it would come at a cheaper price than Nash and IMO, Semin or Doan would put up similar numbers to Nash anyways...
