Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

Rate this topic

718 posts in this topic

We are currently playing 6 rookies in the starting line-up with a 7th being slotted in as soon as Thursday.

How many rookies are you comfortable playing at one time? Should we just go with Datsyuk, Zetterberg and 18 rookies?

Nope just get the guys i mentioned out.... now

Cola and Sammy for a game: trade-deadline acquisitions! w00t!

In all seriousness, I'm not surprised, and not super disappointed, but that cliche of Holland's has to die.

Yeah, I cant believe that. freaking rude.they could have cut back to him like 30 seconds in to the Luongo presser. I would hang up!

He didn't come back on. Appears CBJ is holding a press conference now. Biggest trade of the day (so far) overshadowed by a non-trade.

Have to say I'm kinda disappointed to see Pominville go to Minnesota...and Gaborik to the Blue Jackets? I wasn't expecting to Holland to do anything, but it still feels kinda s***ty.

The Pominville trade isn't finalized but some of you are underestimating how much Minnesota just gave up for him.

They gave up their SOLID tendy prospect that equals out to Mrazek

They gave up their SOLID center prospect that equals out to Jarnkrok

and now it's heard that it's also a 1st and 2nd round pick.

Just allow that to float around if you guys really wanted to give up Mrazek, Jarnkrok, a 1st, and a 2nd for Pominville. I'll just be sitting here calling bulls*** because Mrazek and Jarnkrok would've sent this damn forum into full melt-down mode, none the less the addition to a 1st and 2nd.

Holland talking to media now. Stressing that our 5 coming back from IR in the next few weeks are as good as anyone available in trade market

Wings were in on 2 or 3 players, felt they made competitive offers, but it wasn't good enough.

Disappointing to be stuck cheering for a perennial playoff team.

I'm ok with them not going after Pominville, that price was hefty. Gaborik is a risky risky move, he's struggling right now, and if he does decide to heat up there is always that chance of his back or groin giving out like when he was younger. Add in his salary, I'm ok with Holland not overpaying. Not to say I wouldn't do it, but it's not a clear cut deal that makes Columbus better in my eyes. Better offensively? Probably. Better team? We'll see.

ya I know, but seriously kenny dropped the ball on this one, I would have been willing to give up Mrazek for Conacher no problem

No, very bad move.

Ken Holland doing nothing tells me that he is satisfied with where his team is at or no other GM's were willing to give him their top players. Based on his last three years I am not sure he is the right GM going forward.

Yea I'm not sure what's up with this...Helm hasn't been practicing, he's not travelling with the team, and there's what, a month until the playoffs? If I were a betting man, I'd guess Helm will not play at all this season.

Sounds like the price tag for Vanek. Definitely an overpayment imo. However Gaborik should have been had for the price tag Columbus gave up.

Who cares!!!! We didn't throw away our youth for aging veterans that some of you complain about in the first place!!!!!!

I have to agree here. Why make a trade just to make a trade? I just don't get it.

Yea, yea, yea I hear some of the fans here whining about wasting Dats and Z's time. How they wasted Lids time (even though he has 4 cups already and almost won a 5th). Only one team gets to win the cup, and there are plenty of players who never won one, so did their clubs waste their time? Look at Adam Oates who never won a cup. Look at keith tkachuk. So many great players who got close or never made it. Not every player is going to have at level of success.

People here whine about not playing the kids. Yet, when trade time comes around these same people will whine about not making a trade for a veteran. Which one do you want?

I think all the players that were traded today were sold high. Gaborik for three players? Gaborik has less goals than freaking Cleary and is injury prone.

Glad to see Holland stand pat. It was going to be a rough season at the start, and I knew that we wouldn't be the contenders that all Wings fans wanted us to be. I guess you could call me a realistic fan. I say load up in the off season and through the draft.

The wings should be in "sell" mode. The overpriced offers going around. Move franzen you could get a better replacement and a couple picks. Same with fil. Holland was going about this the wrong. Problem is people hear sell then go into freak out mode. The way teams are over paying right now...selling would be the best thing to do...

Trading Ville Leino for Mattais Backman isn't a good deal? Or how about trading matt Puempel for Tomas Jurco and Xavier Ouellett?

How about signing Brunner, or Dekeyser? Or signing Kronwall to a cheap 7 year deal?

I'm not saying he's been great. But some of these deals can look a lot better in a few years, he's not fleecing people like the Chelios trade days, but it's a different league now, not a lot of roster player for roster player type trades.

Who would be your choice going forward?

As I've said, I didn't really want Holland to make a deal for a playoff rental, but it is kind of comical that he says the same things year after year.

This. Insane how consistent he is. Also, at what point to we realize that "competitive offers" that never EVER work must not be very competitive. I get that we don't want to sell the farm, but I feel like we aren't factoring in "inflation" or something, especially since we aren't exactly the destination we used to be.
