Did everyone looking for a playoff spot get better except the obvious? Amazing. Good job Holland, get that 9am tee time in, you deserve it.


Wings in 2013...Bring the Cup back to Hockeytown!

Boo to all these teams for "trading away the future" in order to improve now.  What a bunch of suckers these guys are.  They all need to take a lesson from Holland and do the only reasonable thing, stand pat with an aging team that hasn't been competitive since 2009.  Stand pat, it's the wave of the future.

Yes hasn't been competitive since 2009.... 2011 were they not one game shy of the west finals????


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

I'm assuming this means that Holland and Flip are close to a deal?

Comeau cost the Flames nothing at all they got him off waivers, and Columbus is just filling the roster spots vacated in the Gaborik trade. This is easily the best deal Feaster made this year.
 
I actually think the Gabby trade could hurt Columbus more than help it, they were coming along nicely and they lost a lot of depth for a guy with 1 more goal than Dan Cleary.


No way. Comeau is a better, young asset to keep on the team (that Feaster just traded the soul of) than getting a 5th that will almost surely never pan out.

Gaborik means the world as a means of exciting the fan base. When the going gets tough, star players are leaned on. Say what you will but if the Blue Jackets make the playoffs...they'll probably be happy they have Gaborik instead of Brassard.

Yeah Dorsett was the heart of their team. It wouldn't be quite like us losing Helm, but close. And Brassard/Moore is like us losing Filpulla signed to a 3 million deal for a another year, and Brendan Smith.

 

Not saying I wouldn't do it, but we all saw what happened to New York when they lost the heart and soul aspect and loaded up no high end talent. You need good depth players.

 

And Minnesota gave up the equivalent of Mrazek, Jarnkrok for Pominville. It's a risky trade. 

 

I don't know how I feel. Slighty disappointed, but the more I think about it it's not as bad as it seems to me.

If I'm not mistaken you're suggesting that losing in the second round of the playoffs is some sort of accomplishment.  Well pin a rose on your nose. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.

Raffi dirtbag Torres to San Jose for a 3rd round pick.    I wonder if there's any conditions on it, like him getting suspended for headhunting.

a rare thing indeed: Detroit Red Wings did not make a trade on deadline day. Probably smart, need to keep picks
 
I agree!

Keep picks for what?  More small sized Euros who'd rather pass than shoot and who won't see a whiff of Red Wings ice for 5 or 6 years?

"Prices too high"

 

No they aren't, the prices are rock bottom. No team overpaid for any player other than perhaps Hanzus. Holland doesn't seem to know the difference between quality versus quanity. He's hording all these prospects which will go nowhere. Gaborik, Roy, Pominville, Iginla, Meester, Jagr, every signifcant player traded, was traded for NOTHING. Worthless prospects and draft picks aren't high prices. Trading one great player for 2 crappy prospects and picks isn't high prices. One good player is worth more than 3 crappy players everytime.

Moore is not Brendan Smith.

 

He's a year younger, and put up close to the same numbers in the AHL. The difference between the two is Moore is much better defensively, yet doesn't move and have the puck skills that Smith has. They are both 20-30 first round picks.

Tampa now has two unproven goaltenders and just lost a very good prospect, if you are willing to deal Conacher why not add a 2 and another prospect and try to get a great goaltender? WoW Stevie dropped the ball here.

Maybe it's a 3 way trade to get Luongo from Vancouver??  Heard he's been pulled from practice
