it would be sweet to have dats and yak together - but we just don't have the pieces to get a former no1 overall


Agreed, we don't.. or at least aren't willing to give up what it might take. I just like the idea of bigger name players potentially being on the move. And I do like the oilers :x

there was talk on page two about yakupov and apparently his agent is going to meet with the oilers and talk about how they've been using yakupov.... said he's open to moving him, to any team.

 

also, his agent happens to be igor larionov.. i thought that was interesting.

That's all well and good, but who is Edmonton going to take?  We have no roster or cap space.  Cleary, Sammy, Gustavsson and Bert all have a NTC.  So who would the Wings trade that Edmonton would realistically want or take?

They need defense and veteran leadership. Smith, Quincey and Sammy, one can dream :)

Assuming we don't re-sign anyone but Ericsson, this team has some really good opportunities next year.

We will have two top six spots open, unless Babcock puts Abdelkader back up there, and a top 4 defenseman slot. Perfect opportunity to address weaknesses.

I never said the wings could pull off a trade for him.. just throwing him potentially being on the move out there.

If only we could have bought out Sammy.. then mayyybe there's a slight chance. Though I'd still don't it.



As it were now, it'd take Sammy allowing a trade there and probably xo, mraz, picks in addition to Sammy. And even then it might be a long shot..

We had this same opportunity in 2012.  Lots of cap and roster space.  I'd like to think they'll do something productive and address needs with younger players, but that's never been Holland's MO.

Ericsson and Dekeyser. Probably looking at a combined 6 or 7M. Worth every penny IMO.

Yeah, I forgot DeKeyser. I'd like to see a defensive lineup of:

Kronwall-Ericsson
DeKeyser-New Guy
Kindl-Almquist/Smith/Lashoff

I don't care so Much about "getting younger.". Anyone between 27 and 32 is fine with me for an offensive defenseman. Prime years.

Saw some speculation that Gaborik might not re-sign in columbus. I wouldn't mind him in detroit. What do you guys think? At the deadline we could offer up 1st+Mid Prospect + cap dump  then try to re-sign him at a decent price.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

You won't get a good offensive D-man through UFA between the ages of 27 - 32.

 

As much as I hate "getting older", I'd look at bringing in Dan Boyle if he's healthy. He's 37, but on a two year deal he would be a nice stop-gap guy until Sproul or someone else is ready.

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

Boyle - Dekeyser

Kindl - Lashoff

 

That would be a relatively mistake-free D, with more offense then we're seeing this year.

I would definitely be on board for Dan Boyle. He would immediately help our puck movement and powerplay

If this is true, Holland has no way of redeeming himself in my book. Sacrifices our young talent just so he can keep his dusty old fart buddies on our team.

Hoax. Fake. Photoshpped. Whatever.

 

If you go to Dreger's Twitter feed, this isn't showing up as being posted on Nov 14.

 

I hope, for your sake, that this isn't your handywork. This s*** can get you banned from LGWs.

Don't post false/misleading tweets.  It's pretty easy to go check Dreger's Twitter account. 

 

And posting it by screen capture makes it look awfully suspicious you did it yourself.

This.

 

We don't need people trolling threads with posts like that.  As I said, it's very simple to check Dreger's verified Twitter account.

 

Future trolling posts like this will result in suspension or permaban.

It was from a Wings Facebook page. I don't have a twitter account, so I copied the image link. Never said if it was true or not...

That doesn't absolve you from responsibility. 

 

If you're going to post what looks like a tweet from Dreger's account that certainly looks true, it's still your responsibility to determine that it is before you post it.  It would've taken 30 seconds to verify this tweet.
