Don't know what to think of this one.

Leafs gave up some intriguing prospects (except for Paradis - he's not much) but get back somebody with Cup experience and some talent to boot in Versteeg. I don't know a damn thing about Sweatt.


Bill Sweatt was very impressive in the NCAA with Colorado college, he's got fantastic speed and very good hands.

He was quite dynamic when I watched him, he might even be able to jump right into the line up.

is that sarcasm?


I mean in terms of the higher priced guys (Hjalmarsson, Sharp), he'd be the next guy I'd let go. I forgot about Ladd. I' obviously keep Niemi over him.

But yeah, if it comes down to losing Niemi or losing Hjalmarsson, I'd absolutely take Hjalmarsson. Niemi is the end is probably an average goalie. He got hot for a few rounds, but so did Chris Osgood and Cam Ward.

With his agents comments after the season was over, it sounded like he wanted out. I was kind of prepared for him leaving and the Hawks faced with the task of getting a Marty Turco type guy.

But I suppose since he won the cup, you're going to say Niemi is some kind of badass goalie that would be devastating to lose.

Sounds like Stalberg, to be honest.

Stalberg has blazing speed, decent hands but wouldn't go into the corners. That was the kiss of death for him with Brian Burke. Stalberg plays too scared. Get got popped by Volchenkov early last season and never got his confidence back.

Or, even more hilariously, signing someone like Turco.


wings would win all their home games against Chicago that's for sure.

I'm glad the Leafs were able to get a top-six forward without moving Kaberle. Still have that chip to play.

I know you're bating, but this comparison is laughable.

imo Stalberg is a little overrated. Not to mention Chicago gave up one of their better prospects in Sweatt.

Wow. Finals appearances in 1998, 2008, and 2009 is getting hot for a few rounds?

Unfair to bring up 98 and 08... he only started watching hockey in 09.

He never recovered, confidence wise, after getting caught in the Volchenkov tracks early in the season. Played scared the rest of the way.

LOL GOOD ONE BRO. Yeah, it's not like I've played hockey all my life or anything.

This is hilarious though. I just assumed Wings fan knew Osgood sucks now. Why are we bringing up 98? I'm talking about 2008, when Osgood sucked ass and still won the Cup.

Are you really going to say Osgood didn't suck in the 2008 regular season?

REALLY?


Its posts like these where you lose all credibility for any past or future argument by displaying a complete lack of any knowledge of hockey whatsoever.

He was on the allstar team in 08.

You're proving his point. Osgood was excellent in the regular season before he won the cup. .914 sv % and a 2.09 GAA, not to mention a 27-9-4 record. pretty damn good if you ask me.

We all knew Stan Bowman was full of s*** when he said he didn't have to make more deals. :rolleyes: Like I (and virtually everyone else) said-- there's zero chance he could've stood pat without magically changing how the cap works.

Because I confused his 2007-2008 regular season with his 2008-2009.

Unlike you guys, I don't obsess about the Wings. Forgive me for a minor mixup. I'll be sure to focus more on your team than mine next time.

.....and Blackhawk players continue to dwindle away.

Been a pretty fun offseason. I think they'll either move one more or lose out on a RFA or two.
