Hextall’s thoughts on trade:

 

"You have to pay," Hextall said when asked about the goaltender market. "I think quite frankly when I look at this deal, I think it’s a fair and reasonable deal for both sides. If Petr performs, we pay more, Detroit gets more. If he doesn’t, they still get paid and it costs us a certain amount, but it’s not overpaid. If we do have success and we pay, then that’s good. It’s good for Detroit, good for us.

Probably irrelevant question: McKenzie says if they make the “CF” the 2018 pick could become a 2nd.... does he mean conference final or cup final? Would think he’d just say “finals” if it were cup final but ya never know.

It’s conference finals confirmed. Look at my link from article two posts above.

If it was cup finals I’d be expecting a first lol

I bet you they bring up McCollum to back up Jimmy. Coreau is too important to the Griffins right now. They have a Cup to defend!

Considering whoever they bring up will barely play (if at all), I would think they’d leave Coreau in Grand Rapids too.

Fine with this. Decent enough haul for a guy that was never gonna be here much longer after they didn't protect him in expansion. Good luck to him and let's keep the rebuild going.

Well, 4th round selection is nothing.

Of course, Holland had no intentions qualifying him. That is called bad asset management.

???

Holland really had no intention of re-signing Mrazek this summer - especially at $4 plus million which I'm sure Mrazek wants.

He was given ample opportunity to become the #1 netminder, and couldn't do so.

Moving him for draft pick/s is one of a very few ways to make the best of this situation.

I've been critical of Holland, but like the Brendan Smith deal to the NYR - I applaud this move by Holland since both other Philly goalies are on IR for the next 4 to 6 weeks which gives Mrazek ample opportunity to shine, and garner the Wings a boost into the 2nd round pick, and an additional 3rd rounder as well.

And truth be told it's a very reasonable way of looking at it.

Philly is just a few pts away from either keeping their playoff spot, or potentially sliding down to 9th/10th in the Eastern Conference.

They are desperate to stay in the top 8 - Mrazek  will be given the chance to earn the adoration of Philly fans.

Anyone know if Petr will be in net tonight against the Habs?

Im with you.  It would be one thing if we were loaded with talent and shipping guys out because we couldnt find a spot for them.  But that's not the case.  The Wings are starving for talent and failing to develop their draft picks into a successful team.  Kindl, Quincy, Smith, Sheahan, Jarnkrok, Janmark, Frk, Jurco, Pulkkinen, Mrazek, etc etc etc.  At some point in time, the GM has to be held accountable.  The biggest problem I have right now is Holland not recognizing what is going to come out of the third round = CRAP.  We need picks in the top 15.

Found this over on the Flyers side at HF Boards...

'Have a good feeling Ron beat the **** of out Holland with conditions. At least I hope so, Holland is a ****ing simpleton.'

A lot of Flyers fans are excited about this trade. As they should be. They gave up very little to acquire a goaltender with a lot of untapped potential. If Mrazek pans out, great for them. If he doesn't, no big loss.

I think the big team always comes first.

Confused it with expansion draft which is basically the same thing as waivers. You definitely got my point but decided to pretend you had no ideas what I'm talking about :)

Nope, there were many aspects of your post that I didnt get.

"Another glory day for the brand new Red Wings! First treating Mrazek like s*** by exposing him to the waiversand then trading him for nothing while also retaining salary... And all these having no goalies in the pipeline. Well done!!!

For the Flyers it has all the potential to be "reserve" Bob trade."

 

Wasnt sure why you mentioned waivers, didnt get why you cared about retaining salary for the next 3 months, not sure what a "reserve bob trade" means

As long as he doesnt play at least 20 minutes in 15 NHL regular season games, I dont want to lose a 7th pick.
