Ok LGW, will the Wings make a move by Wednesday... Yes or No?

 

If so, will it be a Forward or DMan, what do you guys think?

No. But we'll definitely kick some tires.

I guess yes, but I'd really urge people not to get amped for the deadline.  No matter how many TSN, NHL Network, or other trade deadline specials, remember how big of a let-down the past handful of years have been.  They hype it up to get ratings and interest, but at most we'll see one big move. If that.  League-wide.

 

THat said, I know I'll still be hanging around and hoping regardless, haha.

We will "work the phones" and "kick the tires" and "not be willing to overpay" and in the end not make any moves.

I see us signing a depth 9th defenseman that will never play like Garnet Exelby, but will still draw excitement from at least 3 people on this site.

 

We are overdue for an impact deadline move, but I still don't think this is the year.

I see a hockey trade for Cory Cross 2.0

I think Holland will be under some pressure (real or anticipated) from Christopher Ilitch to try to not miss the playoffs. He'll make a trade, but most likely a minor one.

No big splashes from KH, kids.

Yes! We will make a hockey trade a real hockey trade. Holland will acquire someone's useless 6th defenseman for our 7th round pick.

I think it's going to be a depth signing, nothing too fancy and I'm fine with that.

For the right price Ehrhoff would be nice other than that overall I am expecting a very quiet trade deadline especially if Vanek is dealt early.

Holland needs to redeem himself and better be working the phone lines like Ma Bell

This is the first time in many years when I hope Holland does NOT make the trade. There is no way we are getting what we need (1st pair def) without overpaying.


Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

I say yes to a D-Man...and maybe a FWD if the right deal pops up.  Rumor has it that the Wings are one of 3-4 teams that are in serious talks with VAN for Kesler...but even if a Boyes or Jagr presents itself I think Holland will move on it...within reason of course.

 

Expendable: Andersson, Kindl, Quincey, Helm, Eaves, Cleary, Bertuzzi, Samuelsson.

 

DO NOT MOVE Sheahan, Tatar, Nyquist or Jurco. Thank you.

Only Helm has much value on that list. Quincey, Kindl and Andersson have a little maybe.

So you don't want them to get a good player?
