Stuart and Kindl (and most likely a pick) to Anaheim, Selanne to Detroit. I think Stuart has decided to go back.


I don't think we'd have to give up that much to get Selanne. He wants to go to a winner, he's in what it is probably his last season. No team is going to sell the farm for four months without a chance of retaining the player at years end. Unless Pierre Lacroix is back in town.

I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

as much as i would like to see Stuart for a lenghty playoff run, we have Quincey back and have Smith who is NHL ready so i'm thinking that this would be a pretty ok trade where both teams benefit. Selanne would open so much potential in the top 6...

Yup, just speculation.

Lost Defense isn't worth the gained offense there. We need Stuart for a cup run. I'd love Selanne though.


Also, signing Bertuzzi seems like the opposite move he'd do if he was trading for a top 6 forward. I certainly don't see a correlation. But I hope you're right anyway (to OP).

selling the farm would be giving up smith, nyquist or tatar. kindl is expendable and stuart is going back to california regardless after this season. selanne automatically makes the wings cup favorites, especially with like i said, quincey back and smith ready to step up anytime.

As much as I agree with you, I think Quincey was more of a replacement move than an upgrade move. I hope you're right though.

This. Might as well get something for Stuart than just simply lose him for nothing.

Am i missing something? I know the Wings were interested in gettin Quincey back, but as of now they don't have him do they?

I think the Wings should offer Franzen in a package for a Nash. Nash hustles more and HITS THE NET! For all those who minus this cause Franzen's currently leading the team with 23 goals i think, if he would hit the net with even 20% of his shots he'd be at about 35 right now.


And I thought I was the only that notices that he misses the net every time he shoots.

They can probably get a late round pick for him after the season. While he is likely to go back to California, one of those teams may be willing to deal a low pick to avoid a bidding war.

i notice a few key traits about players...

franzen can't hit the net and lacks hustle often.
cleary falls a lot and gives the puck away constantly.
kindl is weak at turning when he picks the puck up in the corner and freezes often, leading to giveaways.
datsyuk is the s***.
joey mac is great at everything but playing the puck. god he's awful at playing the puck...
miller is very, very soft. my dad refers to him as marshmiller cause he's soft like marshmallow. and he needs to put wood on the puck when pk'ing to get it ALL the way down the ice.
Z needs a back massage.
Flip needs to shoot more...like his goal against the hawks...good shot.
hudler needs more speed, but he's been really good this year.
tuzzi needs to stick to how he's playing and not return to behind the back passes.
homer is 1 dimensional and the worst skater in the NHL.
helm needs to work on dangling with datsyuk.

so...on topic, i would really like to know how much it would take to get Iggy in a Winged Wheel.

Maybe another trade for a forward, but nothing crazy IMO.

As a team that is currently at the top of the NHL standings, I would hope that they wouldn't make sweeping changes.

Well, so does Hossa, Kane, Selanne, Perry, Giroux, Jagr, St. Louis, Iginla...should I continue? Oh yeah, and the guy some of you want to package Franzen for.

Living where I do and living with a BJ fan, I take issue with Rick Nash's hustle. He's constantly lackadaisically skating around unless of course there's a scoring chance and then he turns on the jets. Otherwise, it's floating in circles around the ice and an apparent allergy to backchecking.


To me, this is what comes to mind when Nash is mentioned. It certainly isn't hustle.

there's a substantial difference between missing the net half the time and missing the net about 85% of the time.

Agreed. That's all I was saying. But from the talk in this thread you'd think Holland was getting ready to clone and re-activate the KLM line or something.

Let's sum this up here:

-We have 6 grinding forwards (miller, abdelkader, helm, holmstrom, emmerton/mursak/, cleary)
-Moen? Gaustad? we already have 6 of those guys......

-5 playmakers (zetterberg, datsyuk, filppula, hudler, bertuzzi)

-1 sniper (Franzen - who, like was said, misses the net a lot because he tries to go top shelf with every shot)



I SAY: we neeed a sniper.

Selanne fits the bill. Unfortunately, Anaheim is only 6 pts from 8th spot and think that they can still make it. They're going to have to decide this week.

I like it. My only concern (and it is a small one) is that I would like insurance that a 41 year old won't run out of gas for us in a long playoff run.

I refuse to get my hopes up, only because this seems to happen every year. I love kenny and trust him. The Quincey move was a solid one, and has only made our team better. This team right now is good enough to win the cup. I wouldn't really mind seeing a big name player come in, but at what cost? To me, its not worth messing with the chemistry that this team has for a one year rental sniper. This team can win the cup as is, and the chemistry is great.
