I'm not sure if they're eligible. I tossed the question out to Sproul on twitter... we'll see what happens. Both got their entry level contracts but are slide eligible (meaning if they don't play 10 NHL games in the first season of the contract it slides back another year without counting towards the 3 contract years). I know Holland's stated that the intention is to play Jurco in GR this season, so hopefully he can live up to expectations and tear things up! Almqvist is definitely in GR this coming season as well (again according to a Jimmy D interview). Sounds like Quine is returning to jr for another year, though.


For guys coming out of the CHL, they must be 20 years of age, or have played 4 years of junior hockey in order to make the jump full time (although, they can sign those ATO contracts and finish the year in the AHL). You're right about Jurco and Almqvist making the jump, though. I'm very interested to see how Jurco does next season.

WIngs trade Franzen, Filppula, Mursak, Quincey, 1st for Nash. Would Kenny make this trade? Would Columbus? They would likely want Nyquist and Smith included. Ah Columbus will not deal Nash to the Wings anyway because they are in the same division. Nash will likely go to the Rangers or Leafs.

I want more changes than anyone, but even I wouldn't make that trade.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

No way. As much as I dislike Franzen work ethic there is no way we package him with flip and add more onto it for Nash who has never averaged a PPG in his career. I know Columbus is a bad team, but I would rather try for Parise at 7 million.

Trade Franzen and Filppula for Nash and sign Parise.

Parise/Semin-Datsyuk-Franzen
Filppula-Zetterberg-Hudler/Nyquist
Bert-Abby-Cleary
Miller-Helm-Eaves
Mursak

Lidstrom-White
Kronwall-Bryan Allen
Ericsson-Quincey
Smith

or if Quincey doesn't come back...

Lidstrom-Matt Carle
Kronwall-Bryan Allen
Ericsson-White
Smith

Howard
McDonald

Note: I've explained in the "Iginla" thread that I would only want Semin if we can't land Parise and we could get him on a one year contract for no higher than 4.5 million.

Trade Franzen and Filppula for Nash and sign Parise.


What would our top six look like if we did this?

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."

Why not let some other team burden themselves with Nash's bloated contract.

For just his 7.8 million dollar cap hit we can afford Franzen, Flip and a gritty 3rd or 4th liner.

Trading for him would weaken the Wings not make them stronger.
