If the Wings and Sharks meet again, I can already see Bert putting up with a plethora of s*** talking the Sharks will do about the Moore incident now that Dominic is a Shark.

I don't know if they've tied Van for most annoying team. They did get rid of Setoguchi and the f***in' All-Star. I really want the Wings to beat the Sharks but I really don't want to watch another series of their dumbass tactics.

Dominic would be one of the fist ones to turtle if, God forbid, they were forced to back up their talk.

Now that I think about it, Vancouver is still the most annoying team, but San Jose made the race a little tighter with Moore coming in. To be honest, I hate watching San Jose play, period. I'd hate for us to have to play another series against them.

I don't know what Malone's contract looks like, but from the sporadic times I've seen him play it seems like he's a pretty good playoff performer. As long as we don't lose someone who produces more than he would, it'd be a good trade.


Yeah he has a cap hit of 4.5 that lasts until 2014-2015. It's higher than Franzen's. He's also a streaky point producer who hits around the 47-50 point mark on a yearly average. He also has the same issues that apply to every throwback power forward: Intensity, consistency, physicality, etc. However, imo, regardless of whether the Wings are to lose even one or both of either Holmstrom or Bertuzzi after this year, Malone is what the Wings can really use in the playoffs. He's a horse with pucks down low and he'll create space for the skilled players and he has a defensive conscience and good skating ability.

To be fair he was decently clutch in the playoffs.

And was leading the league in points at the time.

As I said in the NHL Trade thread, it would take at least that. But that IMO is the ballpark, yes. Although I think Miller + 2nd would be over payment. Also, I don't think Holland would part with a 2nd rounder just to add defensive depth.

I'd be pretty annoyed if they pissed a 2nd away on Kubina. Although it'd give people someone to rag on instead of Ericsson.

Good lord, a Kubina-Ericsson pairing would have the board go mad. (myself included, that'd be... ugly :ph34r:)

Per this tweet by Darren Dreger, Detroit and Philly both have made offers for Kubina.

I'm going to pretend that's just Kenny kicking the tires to see what the market is like & that he's really not that interested in Kubina.

A kubina acquisition at the deadline would fit Kenny's MO pretty well, I doubt he's merely kicking the tires.

Kubina reminds of me of when we got Bertuzzi. Everyone thought he was a waste until he came here and reworked his game. Kubina is a big body with an offense upside. Put the detroit defense work ethic in his head and he could be the a savoir for our third pairing come playoffs.

I don't think it will cost us too much against the cap to get Kubina. His annual is only $3.85 mill so pro-rated is not that much, maybe $1 mill? It could be a good acquisition for #4 or #5 on the Dmen depth, try him out and see if does well. If he can get his game back, offer him a one year contract like we did Bert and see what happens. You know the saying, you can never have too many Dmen.

What I find odd is that Tampa Bay is sitting him until he gets traded ... I know you don't want him injured and all but that is an odd move.

To be honest I hope we don't get Kubina. I don't know why we need a depth defenseman? No love for Malone in our top six Kenny? Come on. Glad I'm not the GM and Kenny is but still...

There is a tiny bit of intrigue for Kubina in my view. He does have some strengths. Right now he's averaging nearly 20 minutes a game. I wonder if he would play better if he had less minutes and you wouldn't see his weaknesses as much.

Or is he one of those guys who plays better with more minutes? One of those guys who can't get into a groove unless he has his minutes sort of player.

As much as I try to like Kindl, I'm not too sure about having an Ericsson/Kindl (or Commie) 3rd pairing going into the playoffs. I've never really cared too much for Kubina but at this point I'd much rather see a Big E and Kubina 3rd line D instead.
