#2489101 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by stillwater on 04 March 2014 - 12:50 PM

Almquist 2 nhl games ... 1 goal .... So far so good

If anything I think he would really help our 2nd ppl unit


Please tell me you're not judging a player on a 2 game sample size.

Serenity now!


#2489061 Are we really in for Kesler?!

I heard last night that Kessel only had one nut and didn't start a thread about it.

There's a difference between expendable and available for the right deal.


Yes, no one said we wanted him whacked.

God damnit read:
 
McLaren is someone to keep guys like Cowen, Neil honest I highly doubt Neil would running around like he does against us with a guy like McLaren in the lineup. Does McLaren provide a lot? No but he can be had for almost nothing and doesn't cost anything, Weiss is paid to be a valuable second line or very very good third line center so far he hasn't been that. Sadly, I think Burke will pick him up and give the Flames a very dangerous punch McGrattan, McLaren and when he is healthy again Westgarth, so I'm not getting my hopes up yet.


McLaren costs you a roster spot and can't play hockey ... much the same as every other punch drunk dinosaur you've wanted the Wings to sign.

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

Trade deadline time: (thought process of the Wings "fan")

All the other teams players are awesome. Wings need them all.

Most Wings players are expendable.

... honestly, if these players were all so important, they wouldn't be "available". Most "fans" just want trades for the sake of trades.

I read an interesting quote from Royals GM Dayton about the Will Myers trade:

"If you focus on what youre losing, youll never make a deal. Youll be paralyzed. You have to focus on what youre getting in return and thats what we focused on."


After this season, James Shields will be a 33-year old starting pitcher, and Myers will be one of the best young players in baseball.

The KC Royals will still have won absolutely nothing, and Shields will be somewhere else

And Dayton Moore, not "Dayton", he'll be a salesman at Bill's Sporting Goods.

No offense to Babcock, but this team had Ken Hitchcock's fingerprints all over it.


Coaches the winning team to the Gold Medal ... still gets no credit.

What do you expect us to just say good game and never speak of it again?


That's what adult professionals do.

What will you say if Canada loses...Have you thought of that? (probably not)


Read the thread ... no excuses.

Dream come true for the Canadian girls and absolute heartbreak for the American girls.

The epitome of athletics.

Just no reason to continue, really. Looking forward to the Women's Gold Medal game.

 

I've got no derision for you brother.

He owes EVERYTHING to the fans.


Sorry to break it to you, but Henrik Zetterberg doesn't "owe" you anything.
