Any trade for a proven top 4 d-man will center around Nyquist or Mantha.

Not really...

 

Again - I'm beating a rotting dead horse carcass...

 

Buffalo fleeced Montreal with Josh Gorges - costing them a 2nd round draft pick.

 

Gorges would easily be a top 3 Dman in Detroit.

Dallas and Tampa are making moves to try to improve their clubs. They aren't necessarily in direct competition with the Wings for the same players. This is an apples to oranges comparison.

Uhhh.  We are in the same division as Tampa... so... we kinda are.

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.

Maybe we're going for McDavid or Eichel.

 

If Holland traded for McGrattan right now, I'd immediately proclaim him the best GM in the league, and spend the next three hours vehemently defending him from all you scoundrels in this thread.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: the Stars and Bolts are going to be terrifyingly good in a few years. I'm not just saying that to say it. Nill and Yzerman mean business.

Hank should really request a trade. He was so frustrated after that dominating playoff series vs Boston and was so eager for some improvements in the summer that aren't coming. 

 

He deserves better.

Nill acquires 2 number 1 Cs in two years. We are still spinning our wheels.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Fourth year in a row I've been excited for "FA Frenzy" only to be disappointed when 9 out of the 10 top FA's are signed up already...  When will I learn?!

 

I didn't have anyone in particular in mind - I just wanted to see us get better.  Its getting pretty close to us just needing asses to fill bench seats.

Keep in mind, Yzerman may have driven away one of the all time great Bolts...just saying he's not perfect.

I fully expect Iginla to sign with the Spurs next season, just so he can chase another championship.  He played for one team all those years, and is now going wild.  

 

Colorado seems like a strange place, though.  Are they really a Cup contender?  Good season, yes, but in that tougher conference with Chicago and LA, they're a long way away.  

Agreed, he gave up on a cup, but will have some fun and be paiid well.

I'd take McGrattan. If we're going ultra-young with an ultra-old core, I'd genuinely like to have some protection.

Huh?  How was that Yzerman's fault?

 

St. Louis should have won the NHL's douchebag award for that whole situation.

Please be prepared for the Kenny's Panic move (à la Carlo/Sammy/Tootoo)... It's coming

The Wings compete with Tampa, yes, but they don't necessarily need the same players or have the same holes to fill. I'm not going to go round and round with you on this.

No need for McGrattan, our PP is our enforcer

Looks like #RedWings may have to trade for d-man. Buffalo's Tyler Myers' big righty, but would cost Nyquist/Tatar/Jurco/Mantha & high pick.

 

 

If KH does this, I will lose myf****** mind.  Myers is garbage, overpaid, AND would cost good young assets. 

 

Just don't do anything to make it worse Kenny. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

I don't really put the whole St. Louis drama on Yzerman.  I actually thought he handled it quite well given the circumstances.
