Why do so many of you want Holland to horde prospects?   After years of letting our prospects over-ripen in Grad Rapids, we literally have a glut of prospects.   Where are any of these guys supposed to play?  We could deal 5 of our prospects and never miss them.  They barely have room to fit in Tatar and Nyquist - where are they going to put the other 10 guys that are in waiting?  Make a mega-deal for Vanek/Stafford/Pominville.   Give them are first two picks and 5 prospects.  I don't care who ... Jurco, Jarnkrok, Sproul, Mursak, Tatar, Nyqvist, Sheehan, Oullet, the list goes on and on.  They're not accomplishing anything if they're gonna be stuck in GR for the next 3 years.  

 

How about 2 firsts and a second for player X ...sounds very familar with one of the worst trades ever ? :-)

 

 

Want examples how this strategy would turn out? Look no further than the old Mapleleafs or Calgary Flames.

They won't make the playoffs without any moves.  Edmonton and Columbus are looking to add and are playing great right now.  San Jose has won 5 in a row.  St. Louis just beat Minnesota to snap a skid.  Everyone below us is getting better while we're staying the same.  This is going to be on helluva collapse.  Bank on that.

Who's to say we're guaranteed to make the playoffs with moves being made?

 

Even though I wouldn't mind Franzen getting shipped off - what will we get in return?..It's not as though rival gms don't recognise a slumping player, and a potential downturn of a career.

 

Unless a really great deal comes along I'm certain Holland won't do a thing.

The Montreal Canadiens have acquired defenceman Davis Drewiske from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2013. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=419706

Ken Holland won't do anything. He will come out after the deadline and say he was active and the prices were too high. He will say that the return of Bert and Helm will make him like this team. The Red Wings will either slide into a 7-8th spot and get killed in the first round or they will miss the playoffs altogether. The Cup will go to a team that improves year after year. Next years team will look exactly how it looks today but Fil will be handed a big sack of money that he does not deserve. 

 

Jeez that was depressing to write and I really hope i am wrong. What ever happened to the win at all costs days???

We have been under the cap now for a while. It is not all salary cap when other teams improve every year.

Exactly! Last year and this year have both been years where we have sat on money. Everybody else has had no problems making moves. Why can't we?

The Red Wings are closer to 4th than Columbus is to them in 10th. In the past ten games, the Red Wings have 12 points, Columbus 13 and Edmonton 14. The Blues got better, but "looking to add" doesn't really make the Oilers/Jackets any more suited to make the playoffs than Detroit right now.

As expected, Clowe has waived his NTC to go to NYR. SJ and NYR just to need to finalize but not expected to be a problem.

3, second round picks from a team that is the lowest scoring in the league for a guy who has 0 goals this year.

 

This solidifies in my mind that we should be selling right now. The prices are too outrageous to be looking to add to our team.
