Ian White hasn't looked good from about the mid way point of last season to this season I agree. I can see why he has bounced between a lot teams. HOWEVER I'm going to stay positive and keep my fingers crossed that White can turn it around.

And I finally got my wish.  Ian White should go to Carolina and give us a 3rd or 4th round pick so we can load up on prospects.  I'd rather Huskins come back than White.  How are you -2 in an 8-3 win?

Let Ian White tell you himself.

It seems as if he is going to be the scapegoat for the D and the one moved.  His days are done now... and I somewhat see why.  I just think he isn't the root of the problem and multiple trades need to happen.  Yet we need to be lucky just to be able to move one of these guys for anything.  One thing is for sure, they need to keep half the salary of any trade to get the max value. 



I get the feeling a pick, and Ian White at half his salary might go for Bouwmesster as Calgary begins a massive rebuild. Dumping salary as stage one. If the Wings could move Sammy as well it would work for me... reluctantly. 



Who am I kidding, this is Holland... all that will happen is they will bury the youth and waive players if needed because he can't make a trade. Even though Tatar, Emmerton, Joakim, and Kindl are all helping right the ship now while Nyquvist is punished for peaking at the right time?


"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

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.

Ian White will be traded. That is certain. I hope Scamzen goes with him.

I don't know if White will be traded.  He is still a solid NHL level defenseman that can fill in if there is an injury...too bad he has fallen to #8 status on this team.  Either way, he will part ways with the Wings one way or another.  If Holland nabs Dekeyser that's even more of a guarantee...

Ian White to the Islanders for a 7th round pick...wait for it.  That's like a 6th round pick for the Wings!

i am not a huge fan of Quincy. really have no emotions concerning him

 

anyway, i think that the Quincy bashing is highly amusing seeing that he is a +11 and thats all  Babs wants from him

Wow, White scratched again tonight, that's like 4 in a row, right?

 

What is the deal with this guy?  Can they flip him for a conditional pick or something?  Dude was a +22 last year and had pretty good production numbers.  I've never been much of a fan of him, but his play must have been unusually infuriating that he can't crack THIS defensive corps.  I feel like every was pooping all over Quincey and Kindl earlier this year, and it's White who can't even play now.

THIS defensive corps.


You mean this defensive corps that has allowed five goals over four games. I see it as nothing more than not messing with success. Babcock will probably shake things up when it stops working.

Wings said he still figures into their plans, and he hasn't asked for a trade, but I gotta think his value these days is more if he is moved.

 

Kindl has come around in the last few games and played great, Smith is back healthy, Kronner and Ericsson aren't going anywhere, Lashoff makes this team much better, and Quincey has steadied himself, sitting +11. Huskins is a good 7th d-man, and we still have Colaiacovo on IR to look forward to. Fact is, this team has been better since White has been sitting, and if he isn't playing Top-4 minutes we are better to trade him as a rental and get some help scoring or some picks in return.

 

Might as well thank the guy for a few decent years by being honest with him and moving him somewhere he'll actually play.

Wings started winning when White's garbage turnovers a general weakness left the line up.  Chemistry is running the Wings blueline now and even Q is playing good hockey, aside from his brain fart against the Hawks trying to take a clapper in the slot on a bouncing puck to clear it. 

 

In the words of Ricky from Trailer Park Boys..... I f***in' toad-a-so, f***in' toad-a-so!

 

As for his +22, a pylon could be +22 on the other side of Lidstrom's blue line.  And Kindl may have just had his best game in the NHL, so White is baggage at this point that you couldn't care less if it was lost at the airport.

Time to take trim the fat.
