Wings & Yandle twitter-rumors? Believable?

Recommended Posts

I would hate to see Filppula go (although being a realist, I know he is one of only a few assets other teams would want) and I really would like to see what Nyquist can do with top 6 minutes, BUT, you don't get the opportunity for a Yandle (or a Bobby Ryan) all the time. Yandle has 4 more years left on his contract (I think) and he is fairly cheap. He is only 25 and has YET to hit his prime. I would rather trade Fanzine and Tatar instead, but if we did get Yandle, I think it would be better than signing Suter (other than the losing assets part.)

I will say what a lot of you guys have told me season after season, Ken Holland forgotten more about hockey talent than most of us know, so if he feels that Fil and Nyquist are expendable, I trust him. Especially if it brings in Yandle...

No to trading Smith...I don't think Holland would do that, ever. Holland has been waiting for Smith to come up for a long time (as has Babcock) the only time I EVER want to hear the name Smith mentioned in trade talks, is if the name Weber is coming back. Period. I do trust Holland's mind, I don't think he would trade Smith...

You must be much smarter than the individual you are replying to. I say this because you respond to his post with "lol". His stupid comment doesn't warrant a real response, and your comment adds so much to the conversation. Thank you for posting.

Yah. No Smith in the deal.

While Nyquist won't be the "next Datsyuk" - I truly believe he's going to be great. He was a near-dominating force the times I saw him with Grand Rapids. It was easy to spot him anytime he was on the ice as he was clearly head and shoulders above his competition in terms of skill.

I expect big things out of him and feel like he should be as untouchable as Smith in terms of trade bait.

If there are rumors of a big trade, you can be sure that the usual suspects (TSN et al) will be all over it. If you're hearing a rumor only from the likes of hockeyy insiderr and his re-tweeters, then it's almost certainly BS.

Hey, if these rumor starters are a bunch of liars, at least we get the benefit of having something to discuss... however frivolous. :cheesy:

To all the people all of the sudden talking about Fil + Nyquist + picks for Yandle (which seems to be most people in this thread now)...did you actually hear this from any source at all? Or are you just basing the whole thing off of this sarcastic post from earlier in this thread:

I am hearing Yandle to the Wings for Filppula, Nyquist and a 1st. I will have more as soon as I confirm with my sources Bert and Ernie. More to come..stay tuned...

Filp+nyq+1st was according to "hockeyyinsiderr"

...leading me to believe he is not a reliable source.

Edit: his tweet...

@HockeyyInsiderr: BREAKING NEWS: The #RedWings have offer on the table for #Coyotes Yandle: Filppula+Nyquist+2013 1st. #WOW Ball in PHX court.

I don't want to trade Filp. In this day in age of socialism, where all the talent is spread around the league, Centers are tough to find.

I know we need a defenseman, but don't give up a Center for one.

Looks like a bunch of bull...

Wow according to this guy, the rumored deal was Filp, Nyquist, and a 1st rounder for Yandle? :thumbdown:
