21 games and he'll be gone. Would've preferred Vanek, but Legwand played in Plymouth which Holland thinks matters. Whatever. Not happy with this trade. And Bertuzzi should've been dealt - either replaced with someone similar [] or some pucks. He contributes nothing to this "depth" going forward which Holland spoke of. Excuses, excuses.

Assuming that Weiss comes back healthy next year, which is likely, and Legwand re-signs, Weiss is younger and has scored more than Legwand, so Weiss.


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!

 Holland was quoted last night saying that Legwand had to waive his NTC and he believes he wants to be here and will be a wing next season. If you would like the actual quote I will find it.

I can't imagine keeping both: I still cling to this fantasy that Weiss, Eaves, Jarnkrok, and a 3 to Vancouver brings Kesler to a real estate agent near you...not sure why my wife keeps saying "De Nile ain't just a River in Africa".

So, I'm gonna go with Letsgo Legwand. If there is one thing I've learned while living in The Vancouver market, it's that Gillis is a slow learner so he won't recognize another David Booth deal when it's on the table staring him in the face. I've emailed Weiss a link to Louongo's house for sale on Craigslist. (Odd that it's fully furnished including clothes, garage full of expensive cars, groceries, half eaten bagel on the kitchen counter, looks like some left in a hurry!)


Yeah, my head is still spinning from yesterday .

You can't do much worse than Weiss.

Legwand will 100% have more then 4 points after 26 games played for this club---->better then Weiss thus far so I pick David.

I forget Weiss was ever a Wing.  Might as well not be... Legwand, I reserve judgment on.  I didn't like him as a Pred.  But I tend to like (most) players better when they wear a winged wheel.  If I can love Tootoo, I can probably get used to Legwand for however long he's around.

This exactly.  Once Weiss gets healthy and gets some games under him I fully expect him to return to form and be a difference maker.


You can't do much worse than Weiss.

Danny Cleary begs to differ.  At least Weiss made some plays, but couldn't get the bounces.  Cleary was by far our worst signing this past summer.


"I play hockey, but I am not very good.  Can someone please tell me what it would take to sign with the Wings ? I can use a million or two."  ~ arag

 

Dan Cleary is an Xbox 360.  While good for a while, it's time for the new generation to take over.

Bertuzzi, Cleary and the rest of our scrubs are untradeable this forum needs to get that through their head. We're lucky we were able to unload Eaves for nothing. Vanek wouldn't do a lick of good if he's got Andersson setting him up as his center. Andersson would be our #1 center right now if we hadn't made that trade let me remind you

It's all about what fans want, not what the team needs, haven't you heard?

Legwand will play 21 games and be gone, but he will still have more points than Weiss in the next 4 seasons.

Legwand.He's here to stay as a 2C.I'm a fan of both Weiss and Legwand,but knowing Babcock,Weiss will probably play the 3rd line center like Filppula did in the past.

People are just reaching for ways to make this seem like a bad deal. It's highly likely Legwand will re-sign, I'd say.
Check out my short e-book on the Red Wings' 1937 Stanley Cup championship entitled: "Nothing Could Keep 'Em Down." Please download it from my profile at Smashwords: https://www.smashwor...ile/view/victor
