#2379328 Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

Posted by GoWings1905 on 03 April 2013 - 12:34 PM

Nothing today better lead to an active summer.

 

Yeah, I laughed typing it too.




#2379115 time to trade filppula?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 03 April 2013 - 05:40 AM

Who will play second line center if Z is still injured and Flip is traded? The Wings are still in a playoff position, and trading Flip without a healthy Z would be terrible.


In that case, the Wings are screwed either way. Z's absence and Filppula's inability to center his own line and produce offensively would likely put them out of playoff position. I would rather get something for Filppula now and build for the future than keep him around in a season that looks destined for a first round loss, at best, anyways.

Pominville is exactly not what this team needs.


How exactly? The Red Wings top-six right now is awful. A consistent point producing winger would be a huge boost. Justin Abdelkader and Dan Cleary in major roles is even less what the team needs.

I actually see Pominville as a viable trade option. Seems like the type of deal Holland would make and he has a history with Regier in Buffalo.

Pominville would be a serious upgrade to the top-six wingers. Would like someone with more size ideally, but Pominville is durable and a consistent point producer.


#2377324 Lindy Ruff an option?

Babcock has done a marvelous job this season. He can only do so much with this patchwork roster his GM has provided.

Bears 7, Lions 0.

Multi-year deal with a NTC for a stopgap veteran that fills no particular role. That signing was stupid from the start. Nyquist and Tatar are rotting for nothing.

If I hear one more "I like this team" quote myf****** head is going to explode. Let's see all of you geniuses do a better job.

Most fans will never see their team win a Cup, let alone four in their lifetime. Cry about it.


Living in the past isn't going to make this team better. I see your point, but it is Holland's job to make improvements when necessary.

I don't think there is one player on this team that I can look at and say "Yeah, he could go in and score."


Wait, Cleary, Abdelkader and Samuelsson playing major roles doesn't inspire confidence in you?


#2376465 Dreger: Wings 'very interested' in Bouwmeester *merged*

Haven't we had mobility for 3 straight years?
 
What's your confidence that we won't end up with cap space next year anyways? The recent track record is trending the opposite.


Exactly. The free agent class is very weak, especially on defense. Plus there's always the threat that the players you do target don't sign with Detroit. Bouwmeester doesn't hamstring the club financially if there's nothing else available to spend the money on.

Bouwmeester has always been reserved. I think the lack of emotion being used against him is overblown. You don't play 25 minutes per night in the NHL for years without having urgency. Nick Lidstrom avoided contact too. That's just how Bouwmeester plays the game. He's a reliable, puck-moving d-man on a bad contract. I think he's worth the risk for the right price.

5-2 on the two combined road trips is pretty damn good. Started and ended poorly, but otherwise they came out strong during the roughest portion of the schedule.

Expecting a much more entertaining game on Sunday.

We desperately need a goal-scoring winger.

Z and Pav just have nothing to work with. Filppula and Franzen really need to step it up.

They always made the playoffs before he got there.

 

Calgary had lost in the first round four consecutive seasons before Bouwmeester's arrival. The inability to retool was in place already. It just continued on in Bouwmeester's time there since. I don't know how Bouwmeester is supposed to control poor management decisions.

I don't think the connection between Bouwmeester and his teams missing the playoffs is really fair at all. He has played for Florida and a Calgary run franchise that has no plan besides to linger in mediocrity.
