  1. Franzen for edler?

    Both have upside(and downside), some dmg issues on both this year. Similar cash. Nucks need scoring and wings need better defense with better play out of the own zone. I Think it could benefit both teams and it´s a realistic come thru deal. Btw, i dont understand thoose saying wings should go for scorers, aka vanek etc. Besides it´s for the moment totally unrealistic in regards of what you have to give up in value and in cap. Wings are stacked with scoring in dats, Zetterberg, tatar, Nyqvist, alfie, helm and has guys like pulkinen and mantha in the pipeline. What they need is defensemen with some size/physicality, that can get the puck out of the zone in a constructive fashion and chip in offensively and edler is a name with that potential.
  2. Trade Proposal

    To be honest, I'm going a little stir crazy with the lack of hockey news / talk on the go lately so I just wanted to throw out a trade proposal to stir things up and cause a little controversy. LoL So here it is... To TOR: Jakub Kindl, Xavier Oulette, 2014 conditional draft pick To DET: Cody Franson I got a feeling some people are going to think this is over payment but you need to give up talent to get talent and Franson is the exact type of defenseman this team needs in my opinion. He's a young (25 year old), right handed shooting, big body (6'5", 215lbs.) defenseman that actually uses his big frame to his advantage. He had 124 hits last season, nearly doubling our leading defenseman (Ericsson had 67). There is no doubt we would be giving up some good pieces, but again you have to give to get. Kindl is a very solid defenseman just coming into his prime (just one year older than Franson), Oulette is a very solid prospect that would be difficult to see go but we are extremely deep on defense prospects. We would still have guys like Sproul, Jensen, Almqvist, Backman, Marchenko, etc. soon to be ready to make the jump to the bigs with our already young defense group. Imagine our defense for 2013-14 as... Kronwall - Ericsson DeKeyser - Franson Smith - Quincey Lashoff That is a pretty impressive back end if you ask me... Franson is just entering his prime and coming off a career year so it will definitely cost a nice bit to get this guy, but it could definitely be worth it. I remember watching him in Nashville a few years ago and I loved his game back then and he has only gotten better over the past few years. The biggest problem is making a trade with our soon to be division rival. Both teams would have to be happy with what they're getting in the trade, and it would have to make sense to both teams financially as well, and I think that is the key. The Leafs are in a cap crunch, needng to resign Nazim Kadri (and Franson) so with Kindl signed for the next 4 years at a reasonable $2.4 mil per, it could be a better option than what Franson is looking for (upwards of $4 mil per year). Bring on the controversy!!
  3. O'Reilly signed to CGY offer sheet

    Well, the Ryan O'Reilly saga is almost over. He'll either be in Colorado or Calgary for the next two years. Offer sheet reads 2 years and 10 mil. But, it's the distribution of the salary that's scary. Next year, on this deal, O'Reilly is due 6.5 mil. That's a huge cap hit for someone still so unproven. Calgary continues to resist a full rebuild and they might just be wasting O'Reilly's talent on a team languishing in mediocrity. In Colorado, at least O'Reilly has a chance to make it with a young team. It all depends on if Colorado matches. If you ask me, the relationship is very strained between the two but Colorado needs to match this offer sheet. They can't afford to lose O'Reilly this way. Sure, they'd get some draft picks from the Flames, but if O'Reilly turns out to be the star he's projected to be, the Avs need him in a Colorado sweater when he does. Greg Sherman needs to show that he's the bigger man, put all the pouting and BS behind him, and get this player signed and on the ice. This is ridiculous. So, what does this mean for us? Well, it means there's one less option available (even if it wasn't very viable to begin with) for a scoring forward to help stabilize the 5-on-5 offense and improve the power-play. Honestly, I'm just glad it's all over and I don't have to hear how dumb Ken Holland is for not mortgaging his future and handcuffing himself to a guy who, honestly, is very raw and unproven. A guy who had 18 goals last year should NOT be making 6.5 mil in a season. Damien Brunner is making less than a third of that and has scored more than half of that output in a condensed half-season. Would I have given O'Reilly a try for a realistic price? Absolutely. But, we need those draft picks to get more talent on the farm. And trading for O'Reilly? No thanks. The price was reportedly astronomical.
  4. Recent Weiss rumors seem to be bogus

    Saw via The Hockey Chat on Twitter that the Wings were at first very interested in Stephen Weiss, then had a formal offer on the table. Heard a prospect and a draft pick, tentatively. Now, back to reality, and why I think this is total BS. By the time most of you read this post, the tweet in question will be about three days old. Not only that, but the Wings showed virtually no interest in Weiss whatsoever before three days ago. Also, this is a Twitter-generated rumor (as I can't find any major sports news outlets who have picked up on it), which usually means it's horse-dookie. I've had enough of Twitter-generated nonsense over last summer up until now to see this is fake. He's 29, which is decent age, and has a ton of skill and plays a good 2-way game. In short, the price is going to be high. Granted, his struggles will drive the price down a little. But, it's all a moot point considering I highly doubt the Wings are interested, much less have an offer on the table. Would he help? Sure. Will the Wings get him? I'm really sorry to pull an Ansar Khan on you guys and be extremely negative about this, but I doubt it. Honestly, they haven't shown me they have the ability to make anything but no-name moves lately. I don't have much confidence anything changes. Probably another trade deadline that should be slept through. It's going to be a long, painful ride back to the bottom, if I judge it correctly. Hopefully, the Dead Wings don't come back for very long.
  5. Any Red Wings rumors at all?

    Just kicking the tires on the rumor mill to see if there's anything going on at all. Anyone who watched that game last night knows that something has to be done about the power-play. A scorer and a top-line, two-way D-man to run the power-play...our same needs as last offseason.
  6. PK Subban

    It's only a rumor and not by anyone credible that I have seen so I post it here prefaced by that. But saw it in twitter that people think he will get traded by the habs, and was said we were front runners. Again it was just a retweet by a friend on twitter by an account I'm not farmiliar with. Just curious what people's thoughts on here are about; 1. Subban himself 2. If we should go after him 3. What Montreal would take for him, assuming he won't come cheaply. Account it was retweeted from is @NHLexpertpicks Edit: typed off my phone if anyone can fix Subbab to subban would be appreciated haha
