Is Sammy our splash?

esteef

:lol:

 

Yeah - Sammy/Bert/Helm/Cola will all be our additions...

 

On a serious not - I don't expect anything...We don't have alot to offer, and I honestly dunno what's available  that'll make us "better"?

 

Me thinks Holland will be quiet come deadline, and that's fine by me...We handed the Ducks their ass last night, and we gave those jerks in Chicago a run for their $$$ when we played them...As long as the Wings finish in the top 8 - anything can happen, and I think we could pull off an upset in the 1st round.

Wow... way to take that article waaaay out of context. All it is saying is "if we are in playoff contention, a trade is possible" isn't that the case for every team every year?

Op made is sound like Kenny has a deal wrapped up with the condition that 6 games are won. (Sounds pretty ridiculous doesn't it)

 

I wouldn't go that far, he did say he was talking trades wednesday...

I think the fact that we've beaten the Ducks and played strong against Chicago is a testament to how competitive a team we really have.  But the fact that we lost to the Ducks once, and Chicago twice is a testament to how we need a piece or two to get over the hump.  I've been saying for a while that we're not a bad team, and that we really are only a piece or two away from being a Cup contender.  Those games you mentioned only illustrate that point for me.

Would that piece to have gotten by Chicago have been scratching Ericsson for that game? ;)

I would prefer to not see the Wings buy this season.

 

I will admit that it would be hilarious to see the deadline slappies get all excited about Holland making a big deal and then vilify him for trading away assets if the Wings don't end up winning. Of course, I would rather not see that happen.

No, but I do think that that's a part of it.  Ericsson has played outstanding this season, but he's not a top pairing defenseman.  We need a legit top six and top four, and if we don't have those and keep relying on guys to "take the next step" or "dust the cobwebs off" or whatever then we're going to stay exactly as we are, a good team that's missing the right pieces. 

 

Abby's game last night is a prime example.  Good for him for playing that well, and it sure worked out last night.  But he's not a top six winger, and I don't think there's anybody (aside from the reactionary dips***s at the Free Press) who feels comfortable relying on him to play that way.  Does anybody think he could be a difference maker like that in a seven game series?  Does anybody think that Ericsson could shut down top lines on top teams consistently in a series?  The fact that they've done as well as they have is a god send, but without actual high end pieces our luck will run cold eventually.

Your rhetorical b.s. aside, nobody thinks that an acquisition guarantees us anything.  But not making moves and playing .500 hockey all but guarantees we won't even get close. 

 

Also, it's not like the only guys available are rentals.  You could get guys that have a shelf life, you'd just have to pay for them.

Well if he doesn't trade Tatar we're not doing anything because god knows Nyquist isn't going anywhere.  I mean, look at how he stickhandles.  Kid's gonna be a star I tell ya.

It's somewhat misleading to suggest that the Wings will trade "if they win the next 6 games".

 

It's unlikely that they'll win the next 6 ... does that mean there will be no trades? I always expect trades, someone will be traded for, or to ... it's the nature of the business.

 

I hope that you don't think Holland will attempt to load up for a long playoff run by trading young propects and picks for the available superstar, because there isn't any superstars available.

 

Not that I don't think the Wings are incapable of a run ... they certainly are, if healthy.

I wonder who you could be referring to? :ninja:

 

I certainly hope for a deal.  I still think that some team out there is going to inquire about Filppula and Nyquist.  I will repeat, I DO NOT want to get rid of our 1st round pick this year! Are you listening Kenny?

If a trade were to be made, I would believe it would be for a scorer...I'd be interested in Iginla or Gaborik. I know those two guys are oft talked about in trade scenarios...I'd also like Clowe or Morrow...

 

Who could we trade Quincey back to Colorado for?

 

I am gonna break it out again....Franzine to DAL for Morrow...that trade scenario is always good for some controversial debating! Hell throw Jagr in too!

I keep hearing Drew Stafford some fool on the score mentioned us as a possible partner for Buffalo today. I'm gonna say if there is a goal scoring winger available like Stafford go get him. I will say if anyone wants to trade Smith, your crazy. Easily our best dman played 20 minutes last night, he's just about to break out.


BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just happen to have a feeling that the trade will involve one Defenseman, One Forward, One Prospect....the question is who for who?

 

There, aren't you glad I cleared all that up? :hysterical: Blamo! Juck F*cking Pott!

Kenny should make a trade either way.

^This. Since when is Detroit a team that sits by and waits to see if they are in the playoff picture???? Kenny if you are not sure then make a deal so that we are not in question.

I think Kenny should trade Flip... Since he's looking for $5M per season

Yep, I think Flip is the obvious guy going to a playoff favorite....Him and Nyquist should get us a nice rental for our playoff run...
