Well just got back from a business trip.  Heard about this, but didn't have access to it.  VERY, stupid trade.  Why O Why do we never "overpay" for top end players but ALWAYS overpay for depth? 

because it makes it a hockey trade lol

It's not that I have a problem with Legwand, he's a good player.  I just don't like what we gave up, or the fact that he's not a defenseman.

This is literally the first time I've got to comment on the trade, I've been traveling for business and not near my computer.

No good defensemen were moved, and they were all rentals.  The only reason they traded for Legwand even though he isn't signed next year is because they were desperate for a center, more than a d-man even, and him waiving his NTC to come here and the fact that he's from Detroit and grew up a Wings fan should mean they can extend him if they want to.  Vanek or Moulson are probably going to test the market no matter what, and they don't play center, so they weren't options.


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!

They become trade assets either during the off-season (TRADEFRENZY* and/or at the draft)

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 think legwand looked pretty solid. Give him a few more games to get used to the style of play/constant line shuffling and he'll gel nicely with the team me thinks.

Not saying he's our saving grace but he seems to be pretty underrated around here.. I'm not upset with the trade at all.

Quick! Learn the difference between opinion and fact. Your statement "btw longterm future > streak" is opinion and one that the Red Wings management doesn't share. Happy Friday.

 

Do we know that management believes streak > long-term future? I don't think bringing Legwand aboard necessarily means we're "all-in." I think what it boils down to is that we're in a good position to make the playoffs, but, suddenly, our top four or five centers are out. Point being, it'd be a shame to throw away the season (and, quite possibly, all the extra profit that comes with making the playoffs), unless we're absolutely head-over-heels for someone in the draft.

 

As for me, I've accepted that the Legwand deal had to happen and that there's no way the Preds don't demand a crown jewel prospect, because they know how utterly desperate we are for Legwand's services.

 

On a sort-of-related note, trade Helm this summer. It's time.

This has probably already been mentioned, but it's been reported that the Bruins almost got Edler.

Sound vaguely familiar?

Every time people complain about Holland, I want to point out things like this, and the fact that Snow essentially traded a 1st, 2nd, and conditional 5th for Collberg and a conditional 2nd.

Okay and? Just because there are people less competent at their job than Holland has been in the last few years doesn't mean that Holland gets a pass.

The B's key players are either in mid/late 20's or early 30's except Chara so they somehow have that luxury to dangle their top prospects and overpay, unlike the Wings.

Jarnkrok on his debut: It was great. I think we played good the whole game and it was easy for me to fit in. I’m very happy to be here.
