#2487832 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by T.Low on 28 February 2014 - 02:06 PM

Trading away Weiss before he has had a chance to play uninjured for the Wings just isn't going to happen. You can keep suggesting it every couple of pages, but rational people realize we haven't seen what the guy can really do in a Wings' sweater.

Why not, especially if he can be swapped in a package with Kesler? Kesler could be a perfect fit for Pavs wing this season, and he already let it out of the bag that he wants to leave Vancouver, so Gilly may have to cut bait, and Weiss gives him a supposed solid 2C. Their contracts are tradable.

Edler has been rumored all season. While he's not the 2nd Coming, so to speak, he'd certainly add the puck moving element we've sorely missed. Quincey is certainly serviceable to Vancouver's system to satisfy the "hockey trade" portion of the equation, and sell Almquist as the next Rafalski, and those contracts are tradeable .

Throw in Andy to sweaten the deal so they can stack Sedin, Weiss, Santorelli, and Andy down the middle.

They move two guys who desperately need a change of scenery, both of whom could instantly make us contenders. And they receive quality roster players that can contribute as well as undervalued prospect AA.

It's a win/win and the contracts work.

Kesler denied asking ever asking for trade, per elliotte friedman

I heard Kesler's sound bite on the radio, but he can't admit yes to that question, especially after Luongo saga.

Ehroff has been asked where he'd like to be traded.
Bruins inquiring about Ottawas Phillips (doubt they'd trade with us)

More accurately, Erhoff was asked for a list of 8 teams that he would not go to, per Vancouvers Team 1040.

So you want top make a big move, but don't want any of the Wings best young players to be traded.
In other words, you don't really want them to make a big move.

I can understand that internal conflict.

I will say, I am no lawyer...
...we are getting close to a statue of limitations by now......

I've always wondered, do they give tours of the statue of limitations like they do the statue of liberty?

Edit: ;-)

Franzen in playoff beast mode already?
Don't peak too early now.

Or his "One Multi- goal Game and Done" routine, only time will tell. Let's hope.

Excuse me, ladies, I hate to interrupt, but have any of you seen an "injury update" thread? I could have sworn it was right here a minute ago...

Apologies to kip winger: after watching the pace of Canada US I am now more likely to buy the stated reasoning for leaving slowJumbo Joe in sunny California.

Not 100% convinced it's the right choice, but at least can see that is the philosophy.

I'm on the West Coast, so now it's finally my time to suffer game timing with 4am puck drop for the Gold Medal game. Set the coffee machine and buy donuts tonight.

Ah, the good ol' days where Scotty took the non-olympic Wings down to a mini-camp in Florida are long gone.

You mean cerveza, chips, and guac isn't going to get it done?

#2483030 2/8 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Lightning 4

Keeping in mind I'm out west, so were three hours behind, I m at my wife's grandmas funeral, graveside with the pastor talking giving the eulogy.

Suddenly my iPhone Red Wings app goes off signaling the start of the game with a loud , "Hey, hey, Hockeytown!"

Oops. I left the phone in my other jacket, then at the last minute, changed jackets.

#2482411 Jiri Hudler shoots and misses ... again and again

Posted by T.Low on 07 February 2014 - 06:47 PM

Shoulder pads actually restrict your range of motion too much to shoot properly. You could otherwise see he's got a bit of b-ball skills. Lots more than those b-ballers have hockey skills, I'd wager.

I agree with the original article,
I'd scratch Bombay for the speedy Premature Ejaculator.

"Stevie Weeks...The last addition to the Mystery, Alaska squad, Weeks was a teenager who skated the towns frozen river every morning. On a team full of speedsters, Weeks was clearly the fastest on the roster.

Weeks play was impressive enough for the Rangers to sign him to a minor-league contract."

Exactly. I don't want the game to change just to attract more fans.
