Remember the Datsyuk for Gomez rumor that never happened ? This is the exact same thing.

Thank you Jay Feaster! But I would've loved if we could've landed Bouw for an alternative package. Exactly what were missing on the back end, a RHed d-man would be even better but hey.

Kenny is a trade machine:

Nyquist, Smith and the 1st (Mantha) for Edler

or

Nyquist and Tatar for JBO





Well, he said that this isn't the kids league afterall right?!

The other side are the people screaming about how he doesn't have the balls to make a trade or the ones who think that Cleary, Almquist, and Miller will bring back a quality player.

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!

Way too early to slot Sheahan as a 3rd line C.  I see him as a 2nd line C for us right now..he has a great set of hands , a very nasty wrist shot,  and he really knows how to use his body around the net.  I think his biggest mistake was going to Notre Dame.   His time there stunted his offensive development and he's just now catching up.   Jurco/Sheahan/Tatar is a combination that could really do some damage against the big, slow Bruins.

Sheahan will never be a legit 1C. He slots in to be a 3rd line center on a healthy team. Good defensively, can chip in, but shouldn't be expected to perform above that. 

Sorta like a much younger version of Legwand.

Sheahan is 6-2 and 212 lbs.  Unless Jarnkrok  starts using steroids or becomes a legit #1 C...something Sheahan may someday develop into himself.., he will never be valued as highly as Sheahan

 

lol wut

So lets say Kenny trade Dats for John Scott... that mean that Kenny has "balls"?????

Please don't turn this thread into another 'Holland bashing/we're not collectively over the Jarnkrok deal yet.
 
This is the NHL. You have to give up to get via trade. '
 
I don't see how we should complain considering - it's a rumour, we've made the playoffs yet again, where are the Flames?

Bob mckenzie doesn't make stuff up .... If he In fact said that then it's true and it scares the s*** out of me

We should all be greatful we had a ton of injuries this season .... Let's face it without them we'd never know how good the kids are and who knows .... Good chance we might of dealt another or 2 away

This team is always pro veterans .... Sheahan was projected as a bottom 6 and being a disappointment in the offensive side and so far he's been just awesome

Tatar and nyquist to Calgary .... My god that would of been a disaster

We need scoring and a power forward more. Not an overpaid defenseman.

I dont believe it. First poor officiating, now starting rumors of trading our 2 hottest players, seems like the nhl is trying to fade out the wings as much as possible.

no cause that kind of logic doesn't prove his point. i bet you he thought Z, dats, Nyquist, Tatar and others would never be top 6 too. 

Since we can argue by assertion:

 

I bet you never through Yzerman would make the NHL and thought Lidstrom's ceiling was 7th Dman.

If this is true - which it may not be - it shows how little Ken Holland really knows/believes in his prospects. Jarnkrok is killing it over in NSH and these two are playing amazing in Detroit. You can't just go offering up young players as trade bait before you see what they can do in the NHL - its stupid. If Jarnkrok had put up 9 points in 12 games in Detroit prior to the trade his value would have been much higher and he would be valued similar to Sheahan currently. Bottom line - give prospects a legitimate NHL chance to solidify their value before you go and ship them off.

 

Who cares? Really without the David Legwand Trade we would not have made the Playoffs. Our Chances would have went down and down. So say's our Coach. Each team has it's own strengths and weaknesses. What's Important is we made it to the playoffs win or lose in the First Round. And I'll be in the New Throw Your Wings Up Video the 2014 Edition come when playoffs start for us hopefully on Friday.

First you argue sheahan will be at best a 3rd center, then you try to reverse my own argument using terrible examples.. not sure if trolling or..

People are getting upset over a rumor and a trade that never happened?  All journalists report rumors, and most don't outright lie.  It's all about the inside sources you have, and sometimes they're right and sometimes not.
