In Topic: Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

01 March 2015 - 06:55 PM

I would be for a Phaneuf deal, he's got size, a hard shot and I could see him flourishing on this team. The assumption here is that we'd send some contracts back to Toronto, I don't see them taking both Weiss and Kindl off our hands though. 


In Topic: 1/29 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Lightning 5

No surprise. The Lightning own the Wings. I think that's ONE win in their last TEN  games against Tampa. The Wings would get destroyed by Tampa in the playoffs.

 

Unfortunately the Isles do too....


In Topic: Pittsburgh/Philly might be the best rivalry in the game now

Parity does have a lot to do with it. Great rivalries are created by great teams fighting for a division and meeting in the playoffs and battling it out.

In Topic: Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Call me crazy but I think trying to trade for a potentially elite player is a good thing. Hall is 23 years old and scored 80 points in 75 games last season. He is not the reason Edmonton is horrible, that's on managment. I would think that Edmonton fans would commit ass suicide if they were to trade him and I doubt he's really on the block. Even if he were the Wings wouldn't part with the pieces to make it happen.

 

But I want to play too.... 

 

Mantha + Tatar + Smith + 1st Rd pick for Hall and Petry

 

Mantha is a blue chip prospect...but still a prospect. Tatar is a good player but a tradeable asset. Losing Smith would hurt but I think we have some prospects that could step in if we don't make a trade. Again Hall could be an elite player and if you haven't noticed the two of those the Wings have are a little long in the tooth


In Topic: Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

I was just getting to like his middle name "rebound machine".

 

The shootout really does expose his weaknesses, he's always down first, have you ever seen him poke check someone making a move on him?
