I hear we are maybe looking at Semin on a short term deal, can anyone confirm this your side of the pond. Also having listened to an interview with Mikey Redmond he is convinced Kenny has a trade up his sleeve involving some of our young D going out for some scoring Fwd ? I can see this happening but not sure about the Semin rumblings.
I've believed all along and even spoke about it on 97.1 The Ticket, Detroit/Holland had the upper hand the entire time, either they keep Babs or have Blashill in hand. No doubt in my mind that Holland pretty much knew this was happening, at least was 90% sure. I don't doubt Blash is named to be the next HC today. Blashill has to be flying high right now! I am too! At least Blash should play the kids in the right spot and not put players in the top 6 that don't belong there! Jurco and Pulkkinen will prove that they belong higher than the 4th line!
You don't trade Datsyuk. Around the league he is the PLAYERS choice for best player in the league. If ANYONE is going to want to come here and play, it's to be able to play with Datsyuk, not Zetterberg. I'm sorry, Zetterberg is a star, but he is an average star, there are a bunch of players in the NHL that I would rather have on this team than Zetterberg. Pav, is a Superstar, there is nobody in this league that is a better complete NHL superstar, and nobody you could offer me that I would trade him for...
I am not saying trade Zetterberg either, but if it came down to another "choice," Zetterberg would be the one to go everyday of the week.
