If that's the price for a rental, I think we can all but kiss Yandle goodbye.

Friedman says an "Eastern Conference Contender" is making a late run for Yandle


Oh, please let it be. I will take back everything I said about Holland last July if he pulls this off.

If Im Holland Im harassing Maloney every five minutes until he gives me Yandle, or Im doing nothing at all. 


I'm in this camp as well. Yandle or bust for me at the deadline. I am fine with Holland standing pat unless it is for a serious upgrade on defense.

YES! What a game. What a road trip. 4-1-1 and they very easily could have won them all. I would have been pleased with six points even going in, but this was exceptional against some really good hockey teams.

Monster was great today. Pretty impressive win without Z, Quincey and Helm. Get back home now and try to secure home ice in the first round at least down the stretch.

This isn't even a red wing thing. It happens every game in the NHL, the team trailing get mysterious PP's late in the game. Gotta fix it, just call the game the right way. 


Agreed. It is truly an epidemic league wide and a terrible part of the game right now.

Tim Peele is right about the league....


Yeah, but the casual fan loves this forced parity and shootouts!

Sincerely, Gary

Sproul! Oh, apparently Marchenko does have some offensive skill.

What a joke. Just call the dive because that was the only thing that actually happened.

Ok... Would you do it?

I keep circling back to Det. re Petry because may feel they can sign UFA. Oilers would want Ouellet, Sproul or Marchenko in deal.#oilers.

No chance. Petry isn't that good. I'm not willing to part with assets for a guy the Wings could sign in a couple months if they want. More depth on defense isn't the problem. Detroit still needs a top-pairing d-man that moves the puck and is skilled offensively. Petry isn't that.

Need to make a major splash on defense or I would rather just do nothing at all.

YES! Haha, the Stars are complaining about that after what Cole did earlier?

They didn't call anything for 40 minutes and now we are clamping down on everything? Puzzling standard in the third.

Yikes, this is the most winnable game left of the road trip too.

I can't even grasp how bad the defense is. Jimmy bailed them out in Chicago and for parts again tonight, but they are just atrocious overall. Kronwall isn't himself, E belongs nowhere near a first pairing, Kindl is bad and two rookies on the third pair. Holland has to do something major on defense -- sell high on Pulkkinen. Maybe teams will bite on his AHL stats because he hasn't shown much in the NHL.

Brendan Smith is playing fantastic lately. Can't say the same for his other d-men (especially the top pairing), but Smith and Marchenko look great.

Kronwall and Ericsson are a wreck. Quincey is a massive upgrade over Kindl on the second pairing too. Holland really has to make a move on defense if this team wants to contend in the playoffs.

With Smith, Nyquist, Jurco, and Andersson RFA's at the end of the season, I'm not expecting to add any players. We can't add any salary, in fact we need to get rid of Kindl's contract. If we make a move it'll probably be a 3rd or 4th round pick for Kindl.
 
Don't get upset if Holland doesn't add a player.


Don't worry, we are all conditioned to Holland standing pat by now.


#2572701 Jurco to GR

Posted by GoWings1905 on 20 February 2015 - 09:22 PM

Abdelkader started out with the plugs and it has served him well. There's really no recipe for success. I'm usually more bent out of shape about the way Babs uses veterans than how he uses young guys.


Fair point, but doesn't Jurco have quite a bit more skill (upside wise) than Abby ever did? I always considered Abby a third liner that played up more eventually out of necessity rather than merit. Granted, he has performed pretty well in the role and scored more this season. Jurco just never seemed liked a fit on the 4th line. I was a huge proponent of having him start in Detroit, but I feel like now he would have been better served developing in Grand Rapids.
