I'd love Ryan O'Reilly...I think there are still hard feelings in Colorado from the start of this season.  Especially given that next year we'll be playing Colorado a lot less, they should be a little more willing to deal with us.

 

Not that I think it will happen, but that would be amazing and it's somewhat realistic.

Give Tatar top six minutes.  It would cost us nothing.

Rebuild from what?  Their rebuilding started years ago when they let go of Drury and Briere.  They had the best offense in the league for several years there. 

 

They had the best offense in the league for a single season, and letting go of Drury and Briere to keep Vanek was less of a rebuild than it was a series of terrible decisions by Regier. Allowing Drury to walk was the right decision, but doing the same with Briere and keeping Vanek rather than taking four lottery picks from Edmonton was a mistake for which Sabres fans will vilify Regier for a long time.

They can't move O'Reilly within one calendar year from when he signed, If I recall correctly.

This is correct. 

 

Also, TheFourthPeriod.com is reporting that Holland has been "very" active on the phones and he's seeking a top pairing d-man, a top six winger, and a depth forward.

 

Take that for what it's worth.

Filppula and (something) for Vanek?

 

Rather see Vanek here than Gaborik as far as top 6 forwards go.

 

The Sabres aren't likely to trade for Flip because they aren't making the playoffs, so a rental player has absolutely no value to them.  I like Vanek, but you'd have to give them something else for sure. 

 

Conversely, Flip might have value to the Rangers as it looks like they'll sneak into the playoffs and could use the rental.

What would happen though if either of those teams could sign Filppula as part of the deal? Then Filppula might not be just a rental?

 

And unless Buffalo does have a firesale I don't really see them trading Vanek.

 

However I'm big on Vanek just as a player. He could fit nicely into our top 6.

I mean anything's possible, but given their position in the standings I'm assuming that Buffalo wants picks or NHL ready prospects before they want an upcoming UFA.  I definitely think Vanek could be had, it would just cost a lot and might not be worth it, as good as he is.  I think Pominville is probably the more cost effective option if you're going to trade with Buffalo, and while he's a real good player, he's not as much a pure finisher as Vanek is.  And I definitely want a pure goal scorer.  Something that will bury those beautiful Datsyuk set ups.  Vanek is that, so is Gaborik, Pominville...maybe, but a significant step down as a scorer. 

 

Edit:  One reason I like Gaborik over Vanek is because he's exactly the type of player I hope Brunner will become.  He'd be a great example for Damien in terms of learning how to use that speed and shot effectively (and consistently) in the tighter checking, faster, NHL game.

Probably.

A good defense can lead to a quick transition and more scoring.

 

Is it just me or does it seem like the Wings give up way more odd man rushes than they have?

 

I'd agree though, our defensive depth should be good enough. Our forwards just aren't cutting it right now, injuries have a lot to do with it, but it's still something that should be fixed.

My bet is he is targetting Gaborik and Bouwmeester/Yandle. Doubt he gets both a top dman and a top forward though. O'Rielly would be great but would have to wait a year.


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

How do they know?  Are they tapping the GM's phones?  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I'll give you one point for funniness.



I would not mind Gaborik were the price right.
