If I were Holland, I would do this trade 10-out-of-10 times. f*** Jarnkrok. When Zetterberg came here from the SEL he made the Wings out of camp. Not after a couple of blanket tosses in the AHL.
One thing the Wings are amazing at is talent evaluation. I doubt they trade Jarnkrok, panicked, or not, if they didnt think the franchise could live with it.
+ IF we make the playoffs this year, it will be in part due to Legwands contribution.
And I actually think the playoff streak is important. And I actually think that if this team gets in, we may see good things.
Don't kid yourself legwand isn't a key factor in us making the playoffs ... I wanted him here but I'm not willing to say thank god we got legwand he really helped us get in .... You can say he plays a 2 way game and all that but fact is we got him here to be a top 6 guy and help us produce goals
So far as a redwing he's -7 and registered a point in only 3 games and have now found himself on he 3rd line even with us still missing zetterberg,datsyuk and weiss .... You can spin it any way you'd like but those are the facts
We don't get in the playoffs without the brilliance of our kids and some key saves from Howard of late at key times
And we might not be at 82 pts without legwand but I'd still say we'd be 78-82 without him ... That's my personal opinion and we'll just never know
If jarnkrok can contribute in Nashville with basically no top forwards there , there's no doubt in my mind he would of helped here as well ... Let's not forget he had chemistry with nyquist sheahan Tatar jurco
All guys he was a part of with and helped win the Calder cup .... I think he would of had pts in more than 3 games(which is what legwand has)
