Are we really a (Kyle) Calder away from the Cup run? Is this it? What will it take to get something else done?

Ree-lax. I'm not going off. I understand that even though I can make any trade on those goofy video games, that doesn't happen in real life. I guess it's taken me up until today to realize that we're not willing to pay the market rates for the talent available. The investment rate on trades might be too much for us to do anything...

All of this Cory Cross is totally out of context. We lost only one game in regulation after the trade deadline last year, and that one game was a meaningless final-game loss against Nashville, with many players scratched for rest. That's 1 game in 21 without a point. We didn't need anyone. Cory Cross was a token gesture--there was no need to alter an already solid roster. In the post-cap era, going out and spending on a very expensive-player just to have a cherry-on-top cannot happen.

Holland is working, I assure you. Relax.

Better he do nothing than overpay IMO. But hey, that's just me. You see, I like the fact that Holland doesn't succumb to the panic and idiocy that some other GM's do.

Team's are throwing away 1st round picks and other draft picks for rental players like its going out of style. It's laughable.

Honestly, the only good deals i've seen all day are

Laraque for some no-name and an 8th round pick


and

Biron for a 2nd rounder

that's it, the rest of the GM's have lost their collective goddamned minds.
Being a mod doesn't make you special.

Did I miss something? Did the trade deadline get magically bumped up to 1pm?

Relax people... Save the bridge-jumping and Holland bashing until at least 3:01pm.

Bash Holland = bash Nill, Devellano, Yzerman, Bowman and everyone else involved in the process. It is retarded to think Holland is doing everything by himself and all the other guys are just sitting on their asses having no contribution whatsoever. These guys will do the right thing for us.

But you just don't put the third letter of the alphabet over your heart and replace Steve Yzerman!

True true. I remember that. It was pretty awesome. I just hope that Calder is a little more better than what Cross was!! Didn't Cross eventually become our seventh defenseman, pretty much rendering him useless.
Go Blue!!!

Calder is an upgrade to our 2nd line, and he provides us with salary cap relief in the off season.

Cross was a guy who couldn't even crack the lineup once the playoffs rolled around.

These trades are not even comparable.

Grier is a good player,i'm surprised you compare him to Cross?
Mike's great on PK,fast and he can score too-I'd be pleased if he'd join the Wings.

Which is why I may be logging off at 3:00 on the nose.

Exactly.

Calder was not so much a move to improve the team for the playoffs. It was more to get rid of Williams and his contract for next year.

Yeah he got benched in favor of LILJA!!! If that doesn't tell you where he stands, nothing else can.
