Please God no.  Looks like we'd have to give up one of McCollum or Mrazek. For the former, MAYBE. For the latter,  no effing way. We need scoring help,  not defense; especially the pylon.

if we trade away mrazek im gonna flip man! hes future star , i always joke with my friends that we got the future hasek (they always saying how wings are done and were rebuilding soon ... little do they know )

We definitely need defense. It would not hurt to land a legit top pairing dman. If this team is gonna make a playoff run, it starts with bulking up defense. They have plenty of assests to land a dman and a top 6 winger.

 

I think J-Bo would be a fantastic adition to this team. Especially if they can trade for him now, then sign him to an extension over the summer.

If we trade for Bouwmeester I'm going to lose it.  Why take on that s*** contract for that s*** player when Yandle is supposedly available?

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

maybe on mccollum?  wings would be lucky to get table scraps for that waste of space.

 

if holland can get anything of value for mccollum, i'll volunteer to drive the guy to the airport myself.

 

mrazek needs to stay.  patterson could move in the right deal...expendable with howard and mrazek.

Calm down there boys;

 

#Flames Jay Bouwmeester admits he and team have talked about possibility of a trade. Hearing as many as 6 teams interested in him.

 

 

 

 

 

We're not the only ones and I highly doubt Holland is going to give up Mrazek.

They can have McCollum, but he may only be valued as a sandwich in return.

This is great news for the Wings.

 

If Calgary is increasing their demands for Jbo it increases the chance that the Wings walk away from the deal entirely and that is a win for the Wings.

 

He isn't worth the contract he's signed to, if you want Bouwmeester it would be better to wait and sign him as a FA to a much smaller cap hit.

I wish people would realize you have to give something up to aquire something lol. I don't think they could give Mccollum away at this point.

There's 6 teams interested in Bouw. We're not the only ones going after him and its highly unlikely we would give up Mrazek.

If we could add Bouwmeester and DeKeyser to this Defense, I actually would be really pleased.

This is all un sourced speculation on Dreger and Mackenzie's part.

 

They are reliable when they are reporting sources, but as far as making their own predictions they aren't any more reliable than you or I.

 

Other than a Calgary Blog earlier this season I haven't read or heard anyone reference a source that Detroit has actually made any offers or that Calgary has actually requested anything.

 

When you see the word "may" as often as you do in that piece you can essentially disregard it as speculation to fill air time.

God no I don't want that contract.  If we're going to take on that kind of money get me Gaborik to play with Dats.  Plus, Yandle at 5 million is a MUCH better option than Bouwmeester at 6.8 and I'd gladly part with Mrazek for the latter.

We tend to forget that good defense produces more scoring chances. With that said, we do need a Sniper.

As long as it's just a joke because we are talking about a guy who has played 2 career NHL games and was good in 1 of them.  If Jimmy signs for 4-5 years where is Mrazek going to play? If the deal is right I would ship him out now.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

I'd offer up Quincey/Tatar, McCollum, 1st. They can have White too if they want. That is all or I'd walk. His contract is too unreasonable to pay top dollar. He doesn't fit our team perfectly (He isn't very young, tough, on a good contract, or a RH dman). I'd only go all in for the perfect fit.


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

Yandle, IMO is exactly what the team doesn't need. A one dimensional dman who is not very good in his own zone. J-Bo can play well at both ends of the ice, and has stepped up his game this year. I think he would be a great fit with the Wings. And his cap hit is just for one season. Everyone acts as if it is a cap hit the team would be stuck with forever. I don't get it.

 

He has size, can QB a powerplay, can move the puck well, and play well in his own zone. I don't understand how Yandle at just 1.8 mil less can be seen as a much better option. Yandle isn't even the best dman on his team.

Holland isn't stupid. He won't trade Mrazek. JBo isn't the solution to our D. We have plenty of futures in the cupboard a few years away.

That would be a bad move all around.
