    Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

    Woke up in the middle of the night to see this. So it wasn't a bad dream.

    10/5 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Bruins 4

    Just to be clear, Babs - we're not losing 'cause Sammy didn't play.

    Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

    Horrible trade by the Caps. Forsberg will be a star in a few yrs and Erat? Probably retired by then.

    4 Forwards that are/may be available, that help us:

    I'd say Kenny should look into the + 20yr -olds that are not playing their best atm for whatever reason, but who still have potential. For every Turris, Voracek, Tlusty, Hodgson etc. there's still Wolski's around, so it can be a bit of a crapshoot.

    If Hossa is bought out

    I don't know, this has been throwned around quite a bit, so maybe not as moot as we think. Our local season preview mag had Hossa as most likely to be bought out and Larry Brooks wrote in his last weeks NY Post column: "It’s a spread-the-wealth mentality that may be attractive in the boardroom but is ugly on the ice. The NHL for decades has adopted a lowest-common-denominator approach — even in pre-cap days by refusing to enforce anti-obstruction rules on the ice, thereby negating the advantage of its most talented players and teams — rather a rising-tide-lifts-all-boats philosophy, even as the Blackhawks have done just that. Chicago is going to face a painful decision over the summer regarding Hossa, the 34-year-old winger whose contract runs through the 2020-21 season. The cap-recapture formula would inflict penalties of a minimum of $4.6M per season and a maximum of $9.2M per if he were to retire before the expiration of his contract at age 42. The Blackhawks, who will have approximately $4.6M to fill six NHL roster spots next season, may have to use an amnesty buyout on Hossa over the summer in order to avoid potential future debilitating dead cap space. So it goes in a league that does everything possible to legislate a common one-size-fits all venture even while the sports world recognizes that uncommon excellence and uncommon excellence alone — such as demonstrated by the crossover Blackhawks — is worthy of celebration."

    3/18 Around the NHL GDT

    Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

    No GM in their right mind would claim Cleary. So maybe Mr. Snow?

    Stars trade Ryder to Habs for Cole

    So teams still do stupid trades from time to time, like they've always have and there's no reason why Kenny can't be on the right side of one someday.

    2/9 GDT : Oilers 1 at Red Wings 2

    Missed the Blues game, so excited for this one. Prime time too (puck drop 9pm here). Gotta bring it, but think we'll be able to take this, say 4-3. Go Wings!

    2/5 GDT : Flames 4 at Red Wings 1

    Iggy with his usual 3 pt night & Hudler will of course score, but we'll take it 4-3. By wanting it more. Go Wings!

    2/1 GDT : Blues 3 at Red Wings 5 (Z with Hat Trick)

    If my memory serves me correctly, it's serious payback time. They shouldn't have any problems being fired up for this one. Go Wings! 14-3!

    1/21: Red Wings 4 at Blue Jackets 3 (SO)

    Just show some heart, give 100% effort and I'll be happy. Shouldn't be hard after the last game. Go Wings!
