I don't care who gets moved (it's pretty obvious who wouldn't be moved) but it would be nice to see some fresh body in. The team looks kinda banged up and out of sync.

Team is falling apart. Wings need a Big Time Goalie, a mean Defensman and a ligit Sniper... Too bad they cannot afford any of them...

Wouldn't have expected anything else..

I see no trades in our near future.
When (if cause hes not human) lids retires, i think we will see a pretty big overhaul. i doubt we will be able to pick up just one guy to fill the void (who can?). itll be a combo of upgrades obviously need another top 4 dman, and then a big time goalie upgrade would be good to start. then we will see the big time trades.

You're a wizard Dylan!

I would sit back, and laugh at Brian Burke. A successful trade deadline once again has come and passed!

Serious note, I just want to move Emmerton and at least one forward in order to be better prepared for next year, allowing Mursak and IFil onto the team.

If there was some way to improve the Defense by doing that... I would. However, there are no names available that are clear cut improvements. I also wouldn't want to move Kindl or Jonathan yet as I want to see how they develop a bit more. Honestly, that just leaves Salei for a minor move or one of our top four. I just can't pick one guy rumored to be available that would be a huge upgrade...

If Weber was available however I would go get him at a huge cost. Including any of the prospects not on the no trade list below... which isn't enticing... Picks... and maybe a few people from the AMAZING!!! list of players that would be available.

Right now though, the list of players I wouldn't trade is just too big.

Maybe even Ferraro and Sheahan

The list of players I would consider available if I were GM from the team.


Honestly, there is practically no value there to be had, at least not enough to make a deal come together.

I would add other players if the deal would be a blockbuster win... again I just don't see it.

I guess if I had to pick, it would be to go after Bogosian. I know they want a dman back... So Kindl would have to go back and that is not even close to balanced trade. Maybe if they were willing to take Kindl, Emmerton and a pick... It would be like getting two first round picks both as ready to go now as ever and maybe a pick on top of that. I would even give them Meech (what a nice guy I am) I have to believe Atlanta would find a better deal than that, or just sit on Zack.

That is about the only thing I would be compelled to do as the GM...

Unless of course I could steal Weber. :hehe:

This is all in good humor too, I also expect zero significant movement.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

I wouldn't move Bertuzzi. He's one of the few players that are showing effort nowadays.

he has a NTC so good luck getting him to waive that.

Agreed. Why consider moving someone who's been consistent.

Consistent? He is on a hot streak before that he was invisible.
