Apparently we're working on signing someone.

Who wants to bet it's signing Nathan Paetsch to a 2-way deal so he can be brought up

 

Holland's been on the phone for the past two hours trying to get a "veteran defenseman" for tonight's game against Dallas.

 

I'm calling it. It's Lilja.

That actually wouldn't be that surprising...

New Jersey has had Adam Larsson as a healthy scratch the last two nights, wonder if they could be a trading partner. Volchenkov, Tallinder, and Fayne would all be good additions. Volchenkov has a NTC, but hasn't been playing a ton for them, wondered if it's a limited one or not? Andy Greene would be amazing, but I doubt they would let him go play on the top pairing. Tallinder is a steady veteran, probably the easiest to bait a trade for and cheapest. Fayne is young, on a great deal, and is playing very very well.

Neither did I, but if he's not getting playing time and looks at us and sees a chance to play big minutes, he might be willing to waive it no?  I f****** hope so anyway.

TSN was discussing that probably Subban is going to get traded. Dunno know if Subban solves any of our problems however he is young and has loads of potential. Asking price will be high I'm sure...

I don't think it makes sense to give away Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Kronwall, or Howard.  As far as I'm concerned they are the four untouchables.  That makes Franzen and Fil our two highest-value players as trade bait.  I'm actually not even comfortable with trading away Fil given his great year last year.  I wonder if maybe this team could work out?  Brendan Smith's first full year as a Red Wing.  Worst case scenerio we finish poorly, get a good draft pick, and use some cap space to get a good free agent defenseman.  I know that failed last year, but I still have trust in Ken Holland.  It could be a tough road, or maybe it will just be some years of having to fight for the last playoff spots.

Subban getting moved is a distinct possibility since there's a shortage of "quality" Dmen throughout the league, and the Habs could possibly score big on what Subban could bring in return.

 

Not to mention he is a big spot-picking doucher.

I for one have always like Subban, and thought he could become a top 2 pairing Dman.

 

With that being said - he has come across as a doucher from time to time while on the ice, and now he's becomming a doucher off the ice with this contract squabble.

 

He's only been in the "bigs" for a few seasons; he wants to get the long term contract with big $$$ as though he just won the Norris Trophy...Mind you this is his stance that he's taking with Montreal being his favorite team to watch while growing up...Just think how he'd act if it wasn't the Habs?

 

Gotta say as much as I like his ability - the doucher factor is too strong with this one.

I'd be fine with a trade for Pernell Karl, except that the asking price might be unrealistic.

I would love to see him a Red Wing as well...Just that he needs to leave the attitude in Montreal.

 

Yes - the asking price would be a bit steep...Maybe for Franzen?

Filppula has essentially no trade value because he's a free agent next year.

Keep in mind Subban is unsigned. Fil isn't worth subban but subban doesn't have full trade value here.


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

At this point I'll take a spot picking doucher over the team full of children or mediocre hacks that currently reside in on our defense corps.  Like him or no, he's a first rate talent and could definitely help us if the price is right.

Right, I wasn't talking about a Filppula for Subban trade specifically, I was more commenting on the fact that people keep saying the only players we've got with trade value are Filppula and Franzen, and only half of that is true.  But yes, Subban isn't signed either, so he's less valuable as well.

fayne would be a great pick up if we could swing it. Big young RH shot Dmen. American to boot! But I doubt that even would cross Holland's mind.....

Yea, because Holland would never trade assets... It's not like we've only had 4 first round draft picks since 2000 because Holland hates to trade right?

 

Fayne's not on the radar because there is no way in hell New Jersey will let him go, he's on a great contract, been with them the entire time, is getting more and more ice time each year. They would move Volechenkov, or Tallinder first.

that "spot-picking doucher" would be the best defenseman on the wings in no time flat.

too bad he'll never be traded here.
