So, the big news here locally is that the Canucks are going to press 'reset' ... whatever that means.  There is cry for any and everyone including trade the Sedins.  Just wondering if you guys think there is anyone here that might be able to solidify the Wings next year?  Only possibility might be Edler or Burrows.  Edler - Swedish, maybe he can do well in our system?  Burrows is a feisty forward

 

No to Booth, Raymond, Ballard, Bieska.

Ryan Kesler? Him Fil and Franzen on a line could be a sick second line.


Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

I'd do Howard, Datsyuk and Nyquist for Kesler, Burrows, Edler and Luongo--- assuming Pavel doesn't re-sign

 

Would be an NBA-type trade but hey

I assumed Kesler and the twins would be untouchable.

Really?  I don't think I would.  I want Dats to retire a Red Wing ... couldn't handle seeing him in another uniform.  I'd try to get him to sign a short extension 2-3 years if he wants to play a little longer.  But even if we don't get a single thing back for not trading him if he decides to retire in 2014, I still wouldn't pull the trigger on him.  He is too fun to watch.

Really ... I don't think I would.  I want Dats to retire a Red Wing ... couldn't stand to see him in another uniform.  Even if we don't get a single thing back for not trading him if he chooses to play one more and retire.  

 

Best case scenario would be Pavel re-signing for 3 years. We'd have 4 more chances at Stanley Cup #12 before a legitimate rebuild.

 

I just can't imagine the current core of Z, Kronwall and Howard-- sans Datsyuk-- winning a playoff series.

Kassian please.  

 

Would give us an added dimension on the 4th line.  And he's only 22.  


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

Alex Edler would top my list assuming the ginger twins are untouchable. 

 

Ballard isn't half bad.. considering how much he sacrifices his body to block shots and plays a physical game. Really would like to see a full season out of our rooks first though before bringing in a ton of D.

Wouldn't be a trade but Roy would be nice. He's small which is a major downside, but he's also a pure sniper

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Elder and Kassian. Top pairing D-man added to what we already have and the Wings D will be formidable for years!!

Kassian for much needed grit.

Holland would be done after just those two moves!

Kassian would love to play with his hero Bert for a year ... or maybe we can dump Bert to Vancouver for something in return?

I'd take Kesler.  He would add speed to this team that it desperately lacks, and he isn't a floater.

 

I wish Manny Malhotra was still playing.  Having him center the 4th line would be a nice addition for solid checking and defense if nothing else.


Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

Kesler would be the only one I'd take but I have a feeling the Canucks won't be getting rid of anyone if the rumors of what they were wanting for Loungo are true

Bieksa and or Kesler.

I watch those jokers all the time and there is no one on that team I want as a red wing. Kessler dividedthe locker room this year and he is too much of a weirdo to be on the wings.

They all have piss poor attitudes and don't have enough class. There is a reason they got swept this year.

Edler and Kassian is about all I'd be interested in. Problem is Edler is the keystone to their blue line and they're unlikely to move him, and Kassian is young and part of their reset, so also unlikely to be moved.

 

I'd entertain Bieksa though.

1. CLOUTIER LAUGHS

 

2. Won't be many changes. Or, at least, not nearly as many as most fans seem to be expecting. They have a pretty good team.

 

3. Luongo to Philly for Briere et al.

 

4. Kassian FTW.


Don't Toews me, bro!
