didnt think they still were after getting quincey but i just read this .....


The Maple Leafs abundance of defencemen makes the team popular with clubs looking for blueline help. According to Dreger, Jake Gardiner is unavailable, and the only way that Luke Schenn would be moved is if the Leafs were made an offer they couldn't refuse. Carl Gunnarsson, Cody Franson and Keith Aulie are also generating interest.

Chicago, Detroit, New Jersey, Edmonton and Winnipeg are among the teams still searching for defencemen.





dont know if it'll happen but i trust darren dreger .... wont happen but it would be so big if we got luke schenn here , hes so young and physical ( dont even know why his name keeps getting put out there by the toronto media )

I'd say Dreger wrote this before the Quincy deal.

Yeah, I saw that. Doesn't mean that the source of the rumor didn't come before the trade, and was left unrevised.

I'd be shocked if Holland was looking to add another defensemen. Seems more likely that this is old news suffering from an ill-timed release.

It was nevertheless most likely written before the Quincey deal.

"Note: Wings GM Ken Holland told our Helene St. James on Wednesday the team is done on defense after acquiring Kyle Quincey."

The rest of the article says Babcock told Helen St. James that he was done on defense. Way to leave that part out...

Man, who the hell knows what he is going to do now... Nothing he is doing is making any sense to me, and I have always been a huge proponent of Holland. I trust him 100%, but this month is a complete mystery to me.

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 dont think holland has it all figured out yet either. Too many variables this offseason. If lids is still on the fence and possible retirements from homer he has to be careful he doesnt lose too many players all at once. I think thats y bert was signed. Hudler could be gone who knows. Eaves' future is up in the air as well. Not to mention there are 29 other gmsf****** up plans all over the place.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I think the wings know spmethong we dont. Its possible Kenny is preparing for stuarts departure this summer. Or he could be stock piling d for a move in the summer. U don't make the playoffs 20 plus seasons for not knowing what your doing. Have faith

Kenny said he is done with defense and goaltender so I would say that no more trades on D

No offense,but everything's making sense if you ask me.

find reliable backup goalie...checked

waive Conks to help the Griffins...checked

add good blue liner...checked

acquire the Avs player for the wanted price...checked

upset Adrian Dater...checked :ph34r:

keep good relationship with Stevie...checked

sign Bert for reasonable price...checked

Would f*$king love Luke Schenn on this team, imo in the right system he could be a top pairing in a few years.

He's use to playing NHL 12 where Hudler and a first gets you Crosby.
