#2491219 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 05 March 2014 - 06:51 PM

They should convince radulov to come here to play with datsyuk they played good together at the olympics

It wasn't Radulov, and no thanks.  He's a headcase and a terrible team player. 

 

Someone's gotta say it...

 

Since trading away Jarnkrok, the Red Wings now face a tough decision.  Who is the next player (aside from Mantha) that will be a star for the Griffins after their season is over.  The answer is very simple.  Hampus Melen will report to GR this year!  There's your next headline people...just have to print the newspapers.  :D

Don't forget that 3rd turns into a 2nd if we make playoffs. 

This summer?  Don't care too much about this coming draft.  I'd rather give up a 2nd and give a damn about the playoffs.

why are you here spewing bs? Honestly.... The preds and polie knows their the winners of the deal... Nashville fans who want legwand either don't know hockey or got attached to their mediocre 1st line center... They got way more back from the wings than anyone else would CONSIDER offering.... Unless they were a cup contender need a veteran 2nd/3rd liner...

He's giving a perfectly fine perspective from the other side of the coin.  He's also a respected member on here so please don't treat him like an idiot with nothing useful to add.

Just to put this trade in perspective as to why some of us don't like it, here's some examples of trades where it makes it seem like the Wings got fleeced:

 

Moulson and McCormick for Torrey Mitchell and 2 2nd round picks.

Vanek and a 5th for Colberg and a 2nd

Meszaros for a 3rd

Gaborik for Frattin a 2nd and a 3rd

Hemsky for a 3rd and 5th

Rundblad and Brisebois for a 2nd

Luongo and Anthony for Markstrom and Matthias

Robidas for a 4th

Penner for a 4th

 

So to be fair, I'd say Legwand (contract expires this summer = currently a rental) for Eaves a 3rd and instead of Jarnkrok a 5th sounds like a deal ANY OTHER TEAM GOT TODAY!

 

Am I happy we got Legwand? Yes.  Am I ok with what we gave up? No cause of Jarnkrok.  

 

Only saving grace apparently after venting to my dad, apparently Jarnkrok was threatening to go to Sweden to play again per Malik, and getting fleeced in a trade by the Preds, we may have a future trade partner in them and he seems to think something big may be coming in the near future, possibly draft and that we're getting some centre from Russia.




#2490046 Nicklas Lidstrom:Greatest Red Wing Ever

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 05 March 2014 - 12:13 PM

I like to think we have a Legendary top 3 in Yzerman, Howe and Lidstrom.  All 3 different players, I don't give 2 s***s who's the best, I'm just glad they were all long time Red Wings that enrich the organization with a beautiful history.  When you look at the rafters at the Joe, it's got some pretty amazing names up there.

Not sure how they saw that one but not Alfredsson. Brutal.

Not always smart zwinged he gets caught up ice too often but a PP is different from even strength

That's why he and Lashoff make a nice pair.

That right there is why Smith should be on the PP.  He makes smart pinches like that constantly.

Very well played.

Always loved the kid since his Jr days.  I've more than once traded for him in GM Mode to play with Helm.  ;)

Huge save by Howard after Kronwall put it right on Henrique's tape.

Like the rest of us, clearly Kronwall wishes Henrique were a Wing.


Brendan Smith just wants to ride the Mule  :lol: .  Easy apples!

Wow Mule..... That was filthy.




#2488963 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 03 March 2014 - 09:49 PM

Discussion between Vancouvers Team 1040 and a Penguins beat reporter said Sheros offer is Sutter, a prospect, and both a 1 and a 3 rd pick. He said to sweeten the deal, they'd give up Poulliot.

He say Shero has always loved Kesler, and says Shero wants to be kept abreast of all negotiations with other teams so he can best all offers.

Writer also said Kesler really liked his Olympic experience with Bylsma and Granato .

I would definetly go Weiss, one of Sproul, Oullet, or Jensen , and next years 1 and 3.

After watching the Griffins again this weekend, I'd really rather not move Almquist.

If he says no to Sutter, Pouliot a 1st and 3rd for Kesler, than he's as dumb as we know he is.  There's your gritty 3rd line commander and one hell of an offensive Dman.

Hell no to trade for Kesler

I'll 2nd that!  That would be WAY overpaying.  Power forward  :lol: and he never should have won the Selke.  Stupid shortened season put the trophy committe on the short bus.  Kesler got Selke and Subban wins the Norris  :lol:  :lol: those each get a laugh.


I don't view Jurco in the same category as the mentioned ones so if he is part of a package for Ehrhoff I would be okay with that. What do the Sabres need? They suck at every position so maybe Mrazek Jurco and second rounder are enough

Mrazek, no.  Paterson, sure.

It seems every year we have a new young player who looks good in limited action and is deemed "untouchable" by fans. 

 

Then the next year comes, he plays more minutes and gets exposed a bit more or injured and doesn't explode into the "future" player he was predicted as and everyone moves onto the next flavour of the week.

 

It has recently happened with Helm, then Smith, then Nyquist, then Tatar, and now Jurco and Sheahan and I'm sure it will continue on with Pulkkinen, Jankrok and Mantha.  It's like clockwork every year...

 

Bottom-line everyone's available for the right price and maybe we all(myself included) have a bad habit of over-valuing our young guys.

But I like our prospects.  :D I'd rather trade a kid that's still good, but out of options on our end like Ferraro or Almqvist.

Quincey is actually only 3rd on the teams D in giveaways (Smith 39, Kronwall 33, Quincey 32, Kindl 31, Ericsson 30). He's also played more games than any other D-man on our team... suggesting that his giveaway's per-game is lower than most of our other D (I don't wanna compute the numbers, but I believe that math makes sense). More, Quincey is also leading our D in take-aways (Quincey 27, Kronwall 20, Smith 14, Lashoff 13, Ericsson 12, Kindl 12). More, Quincey is also 1st among our D in even strength ice time, 2nd among our D in shorthanded ice time, and only has 23 minutes on the PP... suggesting that his giveaways and takeaway numbers are better per minute than our other d-men.

Is Quincey good? No. But he's not a horrible ball and chain like everyone suggests. We brought him in for a first at the deadline and he wasn't the savior everyone hoped for, and he gets crucified for it. He's just another Eaves. Good? No. Bad? No. Just blahhhhhhhhh


Datsyuk is arguably the best 1st line center when HEALTHY. Trade him too?

I do like Ehrhoff's contract

Smith leads the list cause of the HORRIBLE passes Q gives him.  I must throw that out there.  I say trade him to the B's cause apparently they were interested in him and bring up Ouellet, whom I think is our most ready D prospect from what I've seen.
