#2679508 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

What if Coyotes decide to retire his jersey?

 

I actually think it would be hilarious

I've been reading about how Toronto is ready to throw an offer at Stamkos and even one possibly bigger than 10 mill. What I don't understand is how they can afford it. Capfriendly says they only have around 3 mill in space. Am I missing something?

I'd imagine they start by trading Lupul and Bernier. But even then they'd have to shed more salary to re-sign their own RFAs. Weird seeing a rebuilding team so close to the cap.

 

On the flip side, it has been 100% media and fan speculation that Toronto will go for Stamkos. Babs himself has said the time is not right to go shopping in free agency.

I remember when one of the beat writers said on Twitter the planets would have to align for the Wings to sign Stamkos. The Yotes acquired the Rags first rounder (20th pick). Chychrun fell in the rankings at last minute and was available at 16. Suddenly the Yotes were begging Holland to take Pasha's contract. Many little things had to go right for these events to unfold. The planets are aligning.

Like the Cholowski pick, we needed to add a defenceman. Really hoping with one of our 2nds tomorrow we grab Sean Dean as well.

 

So close....

I need to bash Holland more often if this is how he makes me look 15 minutes later

I'm praying that Bean slides to 16, but I know it's just wishful thinking.

That's what I'm afraid of. Many of us are expecting Holland to at least do ONE thing this off-season to shake things up, but the more I think about it, the less likely it is I think he'll get anything done. We'll get stuck with Datsyuk's contract, stuck with Howard, fail to acquire a top D-man or impact forward, the sky will fall, etc. Hopefully I'm wrong....

 

Sad to say it, but until the playoff streak ends, nothing will change. Until that streak is over, we will see nothing but safe moves.

 

Even if we are well out of the playoffs come trade deadline, I still can't see Holland having it in him to move players for picks and prospects.

Flames have acquired a goalie. Working on details. Elliott was a strong candidate. Bishop as well

Looks like Elliott to Flames. Awaiting announcement.

Holland needs to basically give Howard away. Ridding that contract is itself a huge win for this team. If Calgary is interested, Holland has no excuses. Get it done.


#2678747 Who would you protect?

For the love of god, leave disney.com unprotected. Vegas will not draft him.

Teams have been given the green light to start negotiations with Lucic.

Saw it on twitter ... Think it was from the Detroit free press , didn't mention a specific team it just mentioned those are the players teams are asking for

 

It's called negotiation. Other teams ask for a lot, Holland offers low, they meet somewhere in the middle. In the end they'll lose a Jurco/Pulk level prospect. Someone who can jump in and play for their new team right away.

I'm well aware of tampa's situation ... It's called making moves ... Get rid of bishop and Callahan , maybe they see stamkos more important than Johnson who's struggled last while and trade him for assets

I'm not a fan of giving 10 million to stamkos and his bloodclot issues and his demands to play center ....anyways Again we'll see who's right soon enough ... Like 10 days left

 

1. His blood clot issues have been taken care of. It's a non issue.

2. He is a center. If you haven't noticed, we kind of need a #1 center right now.
