Nice exaggeration there , let's trade all our stars ... If anything we have Way too many bottom 6 guys ... And Im Sorry legwand will not be the difference in us getting in the playoffs or not
Like you said about kesler .... Legwand is not the 2nd coming of Christ
Nobody is asking Legwand to be the second coming of Christ. He is expected to come in and help keep this team competitive while people heal up. If you'd rather have Andersson centering the first line, maybe you should root for the Islanders?
It's not cause he didn't steal a player ... He over payed for legwand ... Pure and simple .... Tsn said the trade went down just before 3pm ... Looks like a Desperation trade by Kenny
Nobody is saying it wasn't a desperation move. He found out he lost Dats for 3 weeks. He had to do something to give this team a fighting chance so he did. Teams don't get players for cheap when it is known they are desperate. It has always been that way. Welcome to sports.
Thats all nice however what did Helene SJ say the Canucks wanted for Kesler: Young forwards (plural), prospect and a 1st rounder.
So if we ASSUME that the Canucks would at least want the same for Edler then you have to compare that trade to the Legwand trade.
I'll play devil's advocate here and say they would want both Nyquist and Tatar, the prospect being of better quality than Jarnkrok (I believe Mantha was mentioned) and that oh-so-delicious 1st round draft pick which no one wants to give up.
Seriously, is everyone just pissed about the Legwand deal because we got Legwand for Eaves, Jarnkrok and the 3rd/2nd instead of Kesler or Edler?
Holland is being hated on because he wasn't able to steal a player away from another team. It's all Holland's fault that there aren't enough GMs as bad as Garth Snow. Shame on him.
Jarnkrok is a kid. He would not have made an impact next year. Or the year after. Maybe in 3 years. Unless he pulls a Ryno and runs home or never develops. So much angst for a prospect who may or may not be good. How many "can't miss" prospects have we seen not come close to their potential over the years? Jarnkrok isn't even can't miss.
Ovechkin to me has more a soccer attitude --> over the top celebrations, golden shoe laces and all that stuff
Under their old coach he had fights with his own team-mates, is still acting like the world surrounds him and just comes off as a cocky kid. I don't know but despite guys like Price, Briere, Prust, Parros and Murray the Habs really don't have a lot of likeable lowkey guys it seems for whatever reason.
To be honest I'd rather have Ehrhoff i have never heard a bad word about him, always the opposite great teammate, low maintenance and working extremely hard.
I guess I don't see how that's much different than what Subban is known for and why it's an NBA attitude when it comes to him. Ovechkin is arrogant, just as mouthy, and not exactly a team player.
In general I take things with a grain of salt when it involves the Habs. Everything is under the microscope there and that place is its own weird hockey universe.
I had heard a lot of the same things but the 24CH gave me a new perspective on the kid. He just seemed like a young emotional guy more than anything. When he made a stupid mistake that cost his team the game, he looked crushed and apologized to his teammates in the lockerroom right after the game. At 24 years old with that skill set, I'd take him on the Wings in a heartbeat.
Martin St. Louis has been one of the most respected and well thought of players in the NHL for a very long time. I don't think he turned into a ****** bag overnight. Something happened, we don't know what it was. When it comes out, he might be the bad guy...which is fine. But currently there's no reason to think that a career class act all of a sudden decided to act like a baby.
