#2646765 2016 Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 January 2016 - 09:26 AM

No f***ing rentals! I don't want anything to do with anymore Legwand, Cole , Zidlicky type deals... If we're trading for a player, giving up assets, go after a player that can help us this year, as well as the coming years. No more way past their prime players, go after youth. We're not one player away from being Cup favorites, but we're definitely building a contender for the near future. We have some really nice pieces, but most are still too young, keep building this team up. I'd rather be sellers than buyers at the deadline, unless there's an actual "hockey trade" that can be made to bring in a top pairing defenseman...


I wouldn't mind us going after Jagr and Scott as rentals.  Two All Stars who could help us fill our needs somewhat.  We likely wouldn't have to give up much for either.  

#2646501 The Elite Dylan Larkin

I must admit that I was surprised Crosby was left off the roster, it makes no sense to me.  He's he had an absolute horrible start to the season...but that's also by his standards, his offensive stats are still better than almost half the forwards on the roster (10 of 24).  The all star games if for the kids and for your corporate sponsors, you want to showcase your stars...it's mind boggling that he wouldn't be selected unless there have been behind the scenes requests to leave him off due to nagging injury (playing through but doesn't want to end up in situation he and other players have been before with the AS game).


Crazy to think though, he's actually only played in 1 all star game.  He would have been there based on performance every year, but missed 5 due to injury, 3 due to Olympics and 2 due to lockout.


John Scott will take care of the sponsors and the kids.  

#2646499 Ken Campbell predicts Stamkos to Detroit blockbuster

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 January 2016 - 01:55 PM

Would it be possible to add Holland and Yzerman to that trade?  I mean a straight swap of GM's?  Then I might be inclined to agree.


Yzerman has fleeced that idiot before with the Quincey trade.  If Stamkos doesn't commit to Detroit, there's no reason to make this trade.  

#2646337 The Elite Dylan Larkin

I'm not sure what Wings fans want or think about young talent anymore. There was a significant portion of fans prior to the season telling us he'll be good but must suffer the lower leagues before we saw him for some magical number of years.

The kid has played at an elite level since he started and there's absolutely no one I would trade him for. His stats are on par with the best in the league and he will get nothing but better as he plays with top end talent. He's elite.


You wouldn't trade him for McDavid, Tavares or Benn?  

#2646160 America's Team?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 January 2016 - 10:09 PM

There is no America's team.  Not even the Cowboys.  This isn't the 70's.  The NFL is so big now that pretty much everyone has a local team they root for. 


Hockey is a niche sport, and hockey fans don't typically like the Red Wings.  I don't see any NHL team getting national recognition in the media.

Datsyuk should demand a trade unless Helm is taken off his line.  

#2645154 Forward Line Combos/Discussion

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 December 2015 - 01:49 PM

This is the best I could come up with to make us successful.



Larkin - Zetterberg - scoring winger

Tatar - Datsyuk - Abdelkader

Nyquist - Richards - talented grinder

Helm - Glendenning - Emelianenko



Kronwall - top defenseman

DeKesyer - Green

Ericsson - Marchenko

#2644505 Evander Kane Under Sex Investigation, Not Charged

I hope the Sabres overreact before they have all the facts and trade him for Joakim Andersson.  

#2644232 12/22 GDT : New Jersey Devils at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 December 2015 - 03:26 PM

Howard was hideous. Watching how wussy we were and getting out muscled by a pretty scrub Devils team is really bad. Funny what a little grit and solid goaltending every night can get ya. Disappointed that Larkin was cross-checked from behind like 3 times and only Abdelkader steps up.


This team is softer than melted butter.  John Scott is currently leading the ASG voting and he's available.  We could get an All Star and a gritty player all with one signing/trade.  

#2643732 Naming The New Arena Suggestion

How about "The Dandenault Dome"?

Helm should have just done a wraparound.

Kronwall has been absolutely horrible this game.


That play a few minutes ago where he idiotically went to his backhand and got blocked, instead of shooting a clean wristshot on goal was really something to behold.  


Oh, and he's a minus 7 on the season.  

#2643300 Adam Oates being brought in to help PP

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 December 2015 - 04:46 PM

Not sure how I feel about this move.  We're already pretty deep at center and Oates is past his prime.

He has an impressive dating record, though.
