What would you guys think of making a deal with florida for their first pick in this years draft? we cld ship this years and next years first rounder plus a second rounder and Franzen shld get it done. Then we cld pick Ekblad who already has the size for the nhl and could play next season plus we get the right hander we need.

According to media reports and rumor sites, Tallon has said that Florida has received exactly ONE worthwhile offer for the 1st round pick.  I'm certain it wasn't from Kenny Holland.

 

Florida sh(ou)ld keep it and w(ou)ld benefit themselves greatly by taking Ekblad.

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.

Depending on who's available and if it comes with making a trade... I think we sh(ou)ld.

I don't understand the purpose of making fun of someone's shorthand with words.  We all knew they meant "could" and "should".

I've said it a couple times before and I'll say it again: I'm 100% down with (the idea of) trading for the pick and taking Ekblad. I'd be willing to consider moving any of the players in our system to get this done.

Get Ekblad, sign Stralman. That would be divine. I feel like Tallon would probably want Ericsson (plus whatever else), but I wonder if Smith+Kindl (plus whatever else) would do it. Can you imagine? (Rhetorical question!)

I must agree with you on this one. Ekblad would be worth the risk. I'd be willing to trade Dekeyser and two first rounders. Losing Dekeyser would suck but the first overall is not going to be cheap.

Zetterberg for Ekblad?

 

If so, you cray cray.

I for one would rather trade our first and a few players to get someone good. I'd still like to win soon not five or seven years from now....but that's where holland is half assing it and needs to make up his mind.

Franzen would enjoy playing in Florida.  Hopefully, their scouts haven't seen a Wings game since 2010.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Ekblad would be an amazing pick-up, but we'd have to ship over a good chunk of our prospect depth, and a body on the roster to get that pick.

On a similar note, it's weird how Florida just butchers player development. A few years ago, Kulikov, Gudbranson, Robak and Petrovic were shaping up to be a pretty darn good defense core for the Panthers... they've all appeared to fall short of expectation.

Most likely because with the Panthers, prospects are thrust into starting roles before they understand the game and make mistakes, lose confidence and eventually fade out. One of the reasons we are so successful is because our prospects are prepared and confident when they finally get starting roles.

I'd do it, and I dont think it would be very crazy. Zetterberg is nearing the end of his career and Ekblad is a possible franchise defenseman.

"Possible" franchise player for our Captain? There have been plenty of 1st overall picks that didn't turn out to be what we thought they would. I'll keep Z thank you.

Holland has made up his mind...he just made a decision you don't like. He's not going all in to win right now, he's banking on the prospects keeping us contenders long term.

 

Whether he's right or not only time will tell.

 

Personally I think this is the worst draft in years to trade up in..I'd rather trade down or trade away the 1st round pick. Buffalo has 3, 2nd round picks I'd rather get them if we're looking to deal.


I'd do it, and I dont think it would be very crazy. Zetterberg is nearing the end of his career and Ekblad is a possible franchise defenseman.

 

It would be utter insanity.

 

Ekblad may not even be the first defenceman taken in this draft, or the one with the most successful career. If he's lucky he'll become a top pairing defenceman, but he's far from a Franchise player.
