Myers is available via TSN apparently.

We could try to buy lowish on him considering he has regressed. 


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

How bout Weiss, Anderson, Quincey, and Almquist for Kesler, Edler, and prospect.


Kesler-Datsyuk- Alfy
Nyquist- Helm- Franzen
Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco
Abby-glendening/eaves/miller/

Kronwall-Ericsson
Edler-DeKeyser
Smith-Lashoff


Kesler scores like crazy when he's on Sedins wing. He's a Diva, but maybe Wings leadership can keep him in check.

If Buffalo is selling everyone. Wings should be talking Christian Ehrhoff.

 

 

I want Stafford.

 

 

Myers is available via TSN apparently. 

 

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=444838

 

We could try to buy lowish on him considering he has regressed. 

 

Was listening to the Marek v Wysh podcast.  Marek was talking to (can't remember his name) a beat writer for the Buffalo News.

He said that EVERYONE not named Girgensons is on the block.

 

Although the same beat writer said that Buffalo is looking for younger forward prospects not picks...

...so it would depend on what Buffalo was asking for but, I've always liked Ehrhoff and wouldn't have a problem with grabbing him up if possible.

Buffalo doesn't seem to be a good fit for him and playing for a bad team isn't making it any better

 

Ehrhoff actually has strung together a couple good games since the Olympic Break.  2 G 1A +1 TOI: over 20:00/game

Yeah, he's got that super-long contract, but 18 of the 40 million has already been paid out. 

$4 million cap hit. Current salary at $4 million w/ salary going tp $3 million in 17-18 and $1 million through the final 3.

 

He's gotta be better than Q and K, no?

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

I can't see Holland going after any of the big names that are on the market and I can't see us picking up anyone other than a depth defenseman. In saying that, I think Tom Gilbert would be a great pickup and it shouldn't cost too much in assets.

I think Kindl and Andersson could get the deal done. They get a young, former first rounder, that still has potential to grow, as well as a great penalty kill that they desperately need, being ranked dead last on the PK at just 76.4%.

Gilbert is a UFA after this season, with a low $900K cap hit, so if he works out, he may resign to another reasonable contract at a slight raise. He's only 31 years old and is a right handed shot, and he has more points (3-22-25) than anyone on our blueline not named Kronwall. He's not overly physical (45 hits) despite being 6'3" and over 200lbs but he blocks a decent number of shots (78).

 

To Florida - Jakub Kindl, Joakim Andersson

To Detroit - Tom Gilbert

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

DeKeyser - Smith

Quincey - Gilbert

Lashoff

 

I don't think we really need to upgrade our offense too much but If Holland does want to go after a forward with Zetterberg out for the rest of the regular season and maybe questionable for the playoffs, I think Jagr could be a decent option.

He can maybe had for a couple mid level prospects and a mid round draft pick. He's getting up there now at age 42 but he can definitely still be a huge impact player. He has 50 points so far this season on a weaker, more defensive minded team. Those 50 points would make him our leading scorer, not too shabby for an old man.

 

To New Jersey - Landon Ferraro, Nick Jensen, conditional 2014 3rd round dtaft pick

To Detroit - Jaromir Jagr

 

Jagr - Datsyuk - Franzen

Nyquist - Weiss - Alfredsson

Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco

Miller - Helm - Abdelkader

Eaves / Bertuzzi / Cleary

 

LTIR - Zetterberg

 

I think if this team could stay relatively healthy it would be able to continue the steak as well as make a decent push for the Stanley Cup this season...

I think Kindl for Gilbert straight up would work, and adding Andersson would be an over payment.  I know that he isn't a star, but I really don't understand why so many people are so eager to trade Andersson away jsut to get rid of him.  He's not a problem in the room, he works hard, he can kill penalties, and he's still young enough that he has upside.  I don't get it.

 

I don't want Ehrhoff for one reason: 2021.  That's when his contract expires.  I'd be really hesitant to take Myers too.  He might just need a change of scenery, but he might just not be that good, and I don't want to be stuck with a younger Quincey for 5 more years with a cap hit of $5.5 mil.

 

I wonder if Holland could fleece them and get Hodgson for less than market value?


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!

"Whether he wants to go or stay, he's not going anywhere," Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo told reporters. "We all know how this script ends."

I just don't see Holland being in on Kesler. Especially when Gillis probably wants Nyquist + Mantha + 1st.

 

Edler? I bet 1,000,000 bitcoins that Hollands after him.

Rumor was that Kenny & David Poile did talk about the price for Weber right before the Philly offer sheet but it was too high on an intra-division move.  I think it's time to revisit that conversation with all but the kids currently on the roster (Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco) & Mantha being off the table.  Screw this small move stuff.  With Z & Sammy now on LTIR for the rest of the season, there's room to make a big splash.

So you want top make a big move, but don't want any of the Wings best young players to be traded.

 

In other words, you don't really want them to make a big move.

My understanding is that Kenny and co. actually sat down with Weber, and he basically said he wasn't interested in being a Wing. That was - and probably still would be - the biggest obstacle.

He could have just as effectively stated that in an email, why add the effort, logistics, and expense of a sit-down?

In other words, you don't really want them to make a big move.

 

But that also leaves the following commodities available as far as I'm concerned that could be dangled as trade bait:

 

  • Multiple draft picks, say this & next years 1st rounders
  • Current NHL talent: Helm, Smith, DeKeyser, & Andersson
  • Prospects rated higher than Jurco and/or Sheahan like Mrazek & Jarnkrok
  • Drop Marchenko due to the injury but that still leaves some solid D prospects like Sproul, Ouellet, & Backman and to a lesser extent Jensen & Almquist
  • Forward prospects like Callahan, Ferraro, Pulkkinen, & Athanasiou.  Just leave Hampus Melen off the table though.

Maybe a combo from this doesn't get a Weber but it can get something a hell of a lot better than a Steve Ott.

I'd be down with Gilbert. Gilbert and Edler would be gravy. Like I've said, though, I don't see Edler being moved this season - and if he does get moved, it will, I think, be for a substantial return. Bottom line: the Canucks are in a dog fight for a wild card spot, same as us.

Nashville doesn't need defensive forwards, defensemen or a goalie prospect.  They need offensive forwards. 

 

There is no way Nashville moves Weber without getting young high-potential offensive forwards in return.  I'm talking roster guys. Not futures.
