Red Kelly.

 

 

Close thread.


 

After Kelly.  Kelly not only went to the Wings rival, but won four Cups playing center for the Leafs, and had his jersey honored by the Leafs.   

 

Meanwhile, the Wings didn't win squat for another 40 years.   

 

That said, his jersey should be hanging from the JLA rafters today, regardless.  

 

Absolutely agree.  Losing Kelly was ridiculously bad.

Oates is the big one for me, mostly because it happened when  I was a young Wings fan and Oates was among my favorite players.   Graves is another one.  

 

Given their track record the Wings might want to re-think things next time they consider trading any player named Adam.

I know his best seasons were with us, but I was sad to see Ysebaert go.  IIRC, we got Ward for him, though, so given his later production this actually turned out ok.


Chiasson for Vernon was a bummer at the time, but we all know how that one turned out.

 

On the subject of the Primeau trade, I was upset to see Coffey go.  I was a huge fan of his -- watching him and Nick hold the line on the PP was a thing of beauty.  Shanahan worked out pretty well for us, though ;)

One of my thoughts on this topic are that we value these young players so much that to trade them for established talent...NOOOO! But if you look back in the storied history of the Red Wings, it's usually worked out in our favor.

March 5th, 1991:

 

to NYR:  Joe Kocur, Per Djoos

 

to DET:  Kevin Miller, Jim Cummins, Dennis Vial

 

 

damn we sure missed that Djoos guy! :D

 

 

edit: Although, we then traded Miller for Ciccarelli the following year, so all was good.

 

Didn't Djoos score 4-5 goals IN ONE GAME against the North Stars once?

I loved it when Primeau got traded. LOVED it. I guess I never got over the fact that we didn't take Jagr because of Petr Klima's troubles. When I think of Primeau on the ice, he's butt is wet from falling down so often trying to unsuccessfully split the defense. Off the ice, I can't forget the grown man COLLECTED MICKEY MOUSE FIGURINES.

 

Hated seeing Chiasson go too. I still fondly can hear, "Chaisson with a drive!" coming over my radio.

I actually made a compilation video of Primeau falling down over and over and over and over, it was pretty long.

Is it on Youtube? I'd love to watch that. In my circle of friends, we called Primeau "Lumpy." Not exactly sure why but it seemed to fit.

Primeau sat out and made ridiculous contract demands and complained endlessly about not being able to play center.  I was thrilled to see him go and to get Shanahan in the deal was too good to be true. 

 

Adam Oates was traded because Jimmy D. heard that Adam Oates' name appeared in a "black book" of a drug dealer, and on the heels of all the Probert problems, wanted to quickly get rid of him.  Turned out to be nothing.  It wasn't as though he was a prospect here, he was already a good player.  It helped being able to play with Brett Hull.

 

Just because a player was traded and may have put up better numbers somewhere else, doesn't mean they ever would have turned into that same player here.

Maybe you're thinking of Johan Garpenlov? He scored 5 straight goals over two games during his rookie season. 1 against Minnesota, and 4 against St. Louis, Nov.. 23, 1990. I was at the Blues game with my best friend. Turned out to be his last Wings' game, he died in his sleep 10 days later.

Even though it wasn't a trade, losing Randy McKay to New Jersey for compensation over the Troy "Bad Back" Crowder signing. Tough, hardnosed kid who was part of the "Crash Line", and helped the Devils beat the Wings in '95.

It's not on YouTube, that was in the days of VHS. I would have to find the box that contains all the old VHS and upload it. Which may happen. :)

Yep, was definitely Garpenlov. My mistake.

Djoos only had 2 NHL goals, so I'm gonna guess "no"...  maybe it was assists?

 

And as soon as I posted this, I saw the Garpenlov answer.  Ha.

Dionne hurts with what could have been.

Although if he stayed we might not have ever seen some guy named Stevie Y.
