Holland didn't even make trades when we had cap space and need.  He didn't even make a trade when Lidstrom was on his last legs.  

 

If anything, we should explore the option of being sellers at the deadline.  Alfie, Franzen and maybe Andersson or Kindl/Smith.  

 

Add Quincey to that list, some team has to be desperate enough to take him late in the season to make a push

Yeah, I guess.  I forgot about him.  Hard to envision anyone wanting him even for a 2nd round pick.  

 

Let alone the 1st that Yzerman fleeced Kenny boy with.


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

Alfie has been great. 32 points in 40 games, where Jagr has 44 in 53. Essentially the same pace offensively and maybe most importantly Alfie gives the Red Wings a right-handed shot.

The problem with being sellers is, we don't have a lot of guys contenders would want and they are the ones willing to overpay the most. Maybe Alfie and a second to the Hawks for Bickel? Although I'm still pissed at him he provides size with is a bit overpaid but should me manageable.

No way we're sellers now.  We are currently in the playoffs should be fresh and healthy after the Olympics.

 

I say we do something low risk.  Pursue a guy like Smyth or maybe a guy like Sarich. Late pick for a motivated vet.

TSN was saying that if rangers can't get callahan locked up he could be shipped out. Would be a good fit here.

Shouldn't be adding anyone for the ridiculous prices the market will demand because we aren't contenders. I agree with whomever said sell rather than buy.

If the Wings could get a 1st round pick out of the trade deadline, and trade up to a top 10 pick in next year's draft (two firsts for a top 10), I wouldn't be against it.  I think it could be a pretty modest way to get a solid player who could potentially be a franchise type of guy, especially considering the going-rate of 1st round picks in previous seasons' trade deadlines.

Don't think he will leave New York but if he does we should peruse him on July 1st not deadline

If I could talk to Callahan and gauge his interest in signing an extension, I'd give up quite a bit for him.  As it is, I'd rather flip a prospect and a couple conditional picks.  High if I extend him, low if not.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Seems like the only realistic option. We've got no cap space and precious few tradable roster players. And we're not genuine contenders, so it's not like we'd be going hard after the big-name rentals anyway.

It couldn't hurt to add a body who is at least an NHL caliber player to help us out, too much dead weight (Cleary/Quincey) and the walking wounded right now. Holland will sit on his hands and hope for injured guys to come back, but that might not be enough, and even if it is, might be too late by the time they're all healthy.
 
Taking a look, 3 teams are clearly out of it. Buffalo, Calgary and Edmonton. Among guys I could see being available that could help us.. (Not sure the price, or the want, but they'd be better then watching Dano fall over himself every night and Q fire pucks into the corner when the net is empty)

Edmonton - Gagner/Smyth/Petry/Potter
Buffalo - Moulson/Ott/Stafford/Ehrhoff
Calgary - Backlund/Cammalleri/Smid/Russell
