I actually see Pominville as a viable trade option. Seems like the type of deal Holland would make and he has a history with Regier in Buffalo.

Pominville would be a serious upgrade to the top-six wingers. Would like someone with more size ideally, but Pominville is durable and a consistent point producer.

 

He's the kind of guy that Kenny likes, plays a good defensive game, and can score as well as pass, very versatile for sure.  Don't know if that means anything, but it is worth noting.

Pominville would be great pickup

Purely speculation on my behalf but I saw a tweet earlier today about Jason Pominville (BUF) being asked for a list of 8 teams he wouldn't be traded too. Now Kenny comes out saying he'd have interest in a top 6 forward. I remember Kenny and Darcy Regier being pretty good buddies.. :ninja: All in all good to hear Kenny saying something other then "we like our team". Now we'll see if anything goes down on Wednesday.

 

Pominville is exactly not what this team needs.

Then who is?  You've shot down every idea but us winning the cup as is without trading Flip whom we'll likely lose cause he's not worth 5 mil.

How exactly? The Red Wings top-six right now is awful. A consistent point producing winger would be a huge boost. Justin Abdelkader and Dan Cleary in major roles is even less what the team needs.

What should the red wings do? What better option is there? Come on, I understand Bouwmeester, but this one is a no brainer.

 

I mean Pominville is about as consistent of point producer that there is. He's a good player. Our top 6 is trash right now, not to mention he's a right handed shot.

Gaborik and Cammalleri are probably the best options.

I'll give you Gaborik, but in no world is Cammalleri a better option than Pominville. Pominville produces more points, and is a much better two way player. Not mention cheaper, and right handed.

I like Cammalleri somewhat, but he's more expensive and less productive than Pominville. No way is he a better option between the two.

Career wise, Cammalleri is less productive, but this season he has more points in less games.

umm gaborik i might be able to live with because he only has one year left (his cap hit is high)

 

NO WAY to cammalleri who's 5'9 and been getting 20 goals a season last 3 yrs and has a cap hit at 6 million although i got questions with gaborik showing up in the playoffs i think he can produce with datsyuk with his speed .... id stay far away from cammalleri

Agreed on Gaborik but not necessarily with Cammalleri.  I'd definitely take Cammy, he's a good scorer, but his stat line is almost exactly the same as Pominville's, they're the same size, both their contracts are through next season, Cammy makes 700k more, and he's noticeably worse on defense. 

 

I guess it would come down  to the asking price, if Cammy could be had for less then I'd go that route, if Pominville is cheaper then that's what I'd do.

The disparity in points otherwise in nearly every other season makes up for it. Pominville's numbers are much better, at a lower price too.

Gaborik yes, Cammalleri would be if the Flames were willing to part cheap cause his salary is what, 6 mil?



And I'd still rather have Pominville than Cammalleri.

And as far as Gaborik performing in the playoffs, he was with the Wild and their horrific trap hockey and scored 40+ and wasn't really in the playoffs much.  The guys around him when he was there were junk.
