2012 NHL Trade Deadline Thread - February 27th, 3:00 PM ET

Recommended Posts

I never once said Holland won't pursue these players so stop making things up. Holland had a buttload of cap space to work with this offseason and didn't use it to replace Rafalski. He got Ian White for a great deal. Holland goes for great deals. Signing these big name players aren't going to be good deals. But I digress. You'll see once the trade deadline has come and gone and once next season begins how right I am. Go Wings?

"buttload of cap space"? Is that an exact figure or more guess work on your part? Holland didn't spend that "buttload" for two very apparent reasons:

1) There were no defenseman available for his price that could replace Rafalski. Candidates include Ehrhoff (10yr/$40mil), Wisniewski (6 years, $33mil,), Kaberle (3 years, $12.75mil), Jovanovski (4 years, $16.5mil). Teams that paid those players were desperate for defensive upgrades. The Wings were not desperate, thus, no overpayment. In fact, they chose to "overpay" Ericsson, one of their own rather than dump him and go chase one of the aforementioned players.

2) He was saving that "buttload" for...wait for it...this exact time of the year! Had he spent that money last year, this conversation might not even exist.

Saying "signing these players aren't going to be good deals" is more guess work. You have "0% chance" of knowing anything regarding what the Wings will offer these players or what they are looking for.

You're out of your element Donny.

Never have, never will. Your opinion, as always, is a valued gift. As you were.

Detroit interested in Samuelsson and Moen, per Bob Duff on twitter.

NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Dustin Brown is available.

I would make him the top target in my mind.

I still would want Selanne if available. Brown would help us a ton, but I don't know if the Wings have what the Kings want. Would likely need a three team trade...

Without a first... I don't think we could make anything happen.

Maybe they would take Quincey back now for Brown?!? :ph34r:

Dustin Brown is on the market. He would be a perfect fit for the Red Wings, I think. I wish Holland tried to get him.

Yeah, me too.... Instead he focuses on getting Quincey and some stupid depth scrub we don't even need I am sure.

I would see if they would take Quincey, Cleary, and a second for Brown. I hate writing trade scenarios on a board, because they are usually foolish. I just much rather get Brown than anyone else.

Then if Selanne is available we could just add him as well and win a championship.

Honestly, right now I just pray it's not Samuelsson who Kenny gets ph34r.gif

I know! But it is the kind of thing he would do and you can almost feel it coming.

Oh, and Majsheppard...Quincey just roofed it on Lou...paying instant dividends.

I think the Wings need a higher scoring forward going into the playoffs. Z, Fil, and Franz do not have many shots on goal... though Z made and created many opportunities as he always does. We can use the help guys. The Canucks whom I highly dislike are going to be there as well as the Shark, Blues, and Hawks. We need more fire power up front.
