In Topic: Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

01 March 2015 - 09:26 PM

One thing some of the nay-Sayers are forgetting...we are right up against the contract limit and not a million miles away from the prospect limit, so seeing as backman was taking up a contract and janmark wa either going to need another this summer or remain an unused prospect, this and the departure of Cleary and gus will make sure we actually have the room to both sign some of the other flourishing prospects in the system and do a bit of shopping in the FA market without having to waive other players closer to the big league.

I had high hopes for both prospects, but backman sort of burnt his bridges and janmark hasn't massively kicked on since we drafted him, and as outlined above we were going to lose them or someone else for nothing this summer anyway if we didn't move them.

It's potentially a good move for Dallas, but might end up being a poor one for them unless both players can put on weight in a noticeable way. As for the wings, we got a player that improves some of weaknesses for a return that will only really coat us if we get to the ecf and he contributes, as for a variety of practical reasons neither prospect was likely do do anything here. And perhaps we'll just find another European FA this summer like Nosek!

Especially with his back injuries, I don't see him bringing in anything more than 2m for more than 2yrs

Indeed. We shouldn't really need to re-sign him if Franzen can return, but he's a guy who can fit in up and down the line-up reasonably well, so if thing go well could be an option. 


Its a good trade for both because the wings gave up virtually nothing they will use unless they have a great playoffs, and the starts get a good boost to their prospect pool with potential high value long shots, both of whom nill knows...

A good trade for both teams.  Backman and Janmark have a lot of talent, but would be going nowhere fast with Detroit, stuck down the depth chart and with the former having burnt some bridges. They may get the chance to shine at Dallas that wasn't going to happen here due to the log jam. The wings get exactly the kind of player they lacked in last years playoffs  with no strings after the end of the year - but I imagine Cole would be open to re-signing at a more appropriate salary if he finds good chemistry.

I'd gone...every time I watch a wings game, the refs do their best to make it a farce. I'm pretty close to just giving up on the  NHL now as I can no longer tell what the rules are.

And of course they score off the bulls*** call after anotherf****** lucky bounce.


Had no luck tonight and same as every other game, the refs having more influence than half the players....
