pittsburgh? you mean the team that's played all year without their best forward?

if the wings lost datsyuk for the year, they would struggle to make the playoffs.

I think that he was referring to the top two guys being out for Chicago, as is not the case for Pitt.

Geno is just as good as Crosby, if not better, IMO.

10 minutes to go:

The Red Wings fanbase holds their breath and counts out-loud to ten.

Nash has about a 25% chance of being dealt. CBJ wouldn't budge, neither would other teams.

Still waiting for gritty 4th line center who can win faceoffs. Gaustad would be perfectly fit.

C'mon Kenny!

I hope Holland isn't content with second round playoff exits, because the fans sure as hell aren't.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

There is still about an hour or 2 where trades filter in. Deadline is for teams to file paperwork with league, not to announce it.

worst deadline of all time

Datsyuk is one player, and the team has been having issues without him.

With Crosby out, Malkin has been tearing it up. Not to mention they have Neal and Staal to help out.

Chicago has Hossa (inb4 Hossa/Franzen debate) and Kane (theoretically) to help, but with Kane crapping the bed they haven't done well.

Detroit needs some help at the top 6, because Franzen plays much better as a complimentary piece and without Datsyuk that can't happen. I don't care if that is similar to other teams. Detroit wants to be the best, so they have to put themselves in a better position than other teams.


Hey, I want another top 6 fwd as much as the next guy...

Wings have enough players that can step up. To me it just seems that they either all step up together or not at all. (Not at all the last 3 games, sadly)

Rolston to Boston.

Funny since they could have had him off waivers for free. Must not have liked what people were asking for on trade targets.

I've heard interviews with Canadian sports tv/radio personalities, and they hate trade deadline day. I've heard them say the day hasn't really had any meaning since the lockout, and most of the time they're just sitting around bored out of their minds.

To help them out I've decided not to watch it on TV, give their websites any hits, or listen to sports talk radio. Sounds like they'd appreciate less ratings :lol:

With that said, I'll just give this website/forum more traffic.

Rolston is an interesting move for the B's. Not sure what he has left in the tank.

Was a lot of talk that Buffalo was still trying to negotiate with him during the day. I do not want him. But if he went for a 3rd rounder I would be cool with it since it would fill the need for 4th line Center. The TSN panel said that Gaustad is in no way worth a 1st rd pick and if BUFF doesn't lower price don't blame people for not taking.
