#2488138 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 01 March 2014 - 12:37 AM

Man, I just don't see the need for Kesler at all. Especially with Weiss coming back, the Red Wings are deep at forward. I'm really opposed to giving up Nyquist, Tatar or Jurco in a deal.

This could maybe make sense as both teams get guys on expiring contracts. Maybe Quincey and a 3rd or 2nd for macdonald


I'm no Kyle Quincey fan, but that seems like overpayment. I think, best case scenario, MacDonald is a marginal upgrade to Quincey and I'm not even convinced of that. If the Wings are going to make a deal for a d-man and give up picks/assets, it should be for a player that solidifies the second pairing.

Good win! Two goals against in two games is the most important thing for me. Hopefully Weiss can come back strong because this offense has nice firepower and depth, even missing Z.

Chris Neil is a joke. Play hockey for once you tool.

NHL officiating: predictable, as usual. Where getting a lead is always punished.

On a positive, Monster has been really sharp.

Best player not named Tatar.


Tatar was great too, but I thought Gus was consistently better overall. Either way, they are both a treat to watch.

Tatar and Jurco in the final minute? Love the kids, but not sure that's the best decision by Babs with a one-goal lead.

They have left so many points on the table by failing to hold a lead and losing in OT or SO.

Of course. Bertuzzi makes a terrible turnover and then gets a tap in from Franzen.

Will gladly take the goal, though.


#2486185 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by GoWings1905 on 22 February 2014 - 12:01 PM

People seem to forget, besides the back injury, the guy will be 34 next season. Don't expect any stellar numbers, even if his back is better.


That's a fair point. Although, I honestly believe this season was one of the best in Z's career and that's saying something.

I do agree that it's a shame the Red Wings are stuck in transitional years as the Euro Twins continue to get older. By the time all of these prospects are fully integrated, Pav and Z will be gone or likely declining.

Stand pat. First time in awhile, I will actually defend Holland for "kicking the tires". The Red Wings weren't a player away from championship contention with Henrik Zetterberg and now they are down their MVP. I do wish the streak will remain intact, but I don't want to give up assets for a rental player or marginal impact player that won't change the Red Wings fortunes of borderline playoff team. Nyquist and Tatar are basically untouchable to me if they are going to be dangled for some "quick fix" just because Z is out. 

 

Hope Weiss and Franzen get/stay healthy, let Sheahan and Jurco continue to play and build a solid foundation for next season and beyond. Trade Quincey for whatever the hell you can get in return and use the cap space created from the dead weight being gone to fix the defense this summer.

Look at the posts during the Latvian game. There was trash talk. Now you have lost so you get to be trash talked.That's how sports work. What do you expect us to just say good game and never speak of it again?


Considering most Americans did just that following the game, that seems pretty fair.

Ya ok, the US fans were bragging for the last few weeks relentlessly about how they were winning the gold this year, and Canada has no chance and blah blah blah, I'm just doing my due diligence now.


Care to support that with any evidence? I think, as a whole, Americans were just confident and pleased with how our team was playing. Any sensible person knew winning gold was by no means a given.

This thread was very civil until you stirred the pot. Every American in here has given Canada credit for winning today.

Should be a fantastic game. Four years ago, I expected Canada to win and was just ecstatic at the surprise run the United States had put together.

Now, it's completely different. I expect and think the United States will win. That being said, I don't put a ton of stock in Canada "struggling" so far. They are the most talented team in the Olympics and USA will have to put forth their best effort yet.

USA!

For once, I wouldn't care if Holland stands pat. If Z is out any extended period of time (which seems like a foregone conclusion), I don't see the Red Wings making the playoffs. Not only Z missing, but Franzen hasn't skated either. There isn't anybody available at the deadline that screams impact player and do we really want to give up assets for a rental on a borderline playoff team?

 

Play Sheahan and Jurco the rest of the season. Continue with Nyquist and Tatar developing for the future. I don't want too many more "transitional years" since the Euro Twins are approaching the end, but I'm not sure this team was a contender even with a full contingent of healthy bodies. 

 

Build for next season. The dead weight will be gone and there is ample cap space to address glaring needs like the defense.

Haha, awesome. USA doesn't get a free pass to the gold on this one.


Like drawing Norway, Austria and an absolutely depleted Finland in group play?
