#2381257 4/5 GDT: Red Wings 3 @ Avalanche 2 (OT)

Last night you called him a Euro trash and called for his exit to get a real, hard working player.

This guy is f***in with us right?

Time to send Nyquist to the minors to join Tatar.  

 

He's playing far too well to stay up on this team.    




#2380922 How much do we miss Rafalski?!?!

I sort of just miss having you know...actual top four talent...in the top four.  Didn't Meat Loaf sing a song about 1 outta 4 ain't bad or something?




#2379863 Shocking, Wings aren't active as trade deadline expires

I'm not upset about nothing being done by Holland this deadline, but sooner or later some fat is going to have to be trimmed from this team one way or another. 

 

List of expendable players: 

 

Bertuzzi

Abdelkader

Cleary

Miller

Eaves

Emmerton

White
Cola

Samuelsson

 

List of players NHL ready or soon to be NHL ready: 

 

Tatar

Nyquist

Andersson

Ferraro

Sheahan

Lashoff

Almqvist

Jarnkrok

Dekeyser

 

Sad thing is I don't see anyone but Nyquist, Andersson and MAYYYYYYBE Lashoff being on the team next season. 


Jarnkrok should be fast-tracked. Give him a locker-room spot next to Zetterberg. Let him watch Datsyuk in what could be his last season in the NHL. Use him on the wing. Use him on the 3rd or 4th line. Trial. By. Fire. The kid will sink or swim. Sending him to Grand Rapids for a year is almost a step back from the SEL, really at most a lateral move. But that's what's going to happen, right? Sigh.

By LGW logic...Pitt needs to win the Cup this year or their GM is af****** idiot for making all these moves correct?


#2379780 time to trade filppula?

The part I find most confusing is that we really can't "reload" via free agency this summer. Our needs are a solid #1-2 defenseman and a top-6 scorer.  Very few options will be available. Maybe it all works out. I'm not a fan of being mediocre for a few years to have a chance at being good later.  I'm glad we still have all of our prospects. Nyquist and Tatar are very good players, but the way Babcock is set on playing them on the 3rd and 4th lines just won't work. They're top-6 players. They need to play with talent to be useful.

I love how CGY fans on HF were claiming that Jurco, Quincey, 2nd wouldn't have done it. 



most said nyquist + 1st wasn't enough



I almost feel bad for the fans

Some people around here really, really love hindsight. To that point, Franzen was a player who put forth maximum effort in every game and looked to have tremendous potential. He was signed on a reasonable contract. Did you perhaps expect Holland to see into the future? If you can find a GM capable of such divination, please let us know. I'd like some lottery numbers.

Ray Shero, he knew Crosby was going to get it in the jaw so he got 2 captains before it even happened.

Ok enough Hossa vs. Franzen talk...

 

How quickly people forget Hossa was one of the ones blamed for not winning the 2009 Stanley Cup. Hossa only had 15 points in 23 playoff games, and we were very disappointed in his lack of scoring in the finals. Franzen had 23 pts in 23 playoff games, and 18 pts in 16 playoff games in 2008. Personally 99.99999% of us would have been pissed if Holland signed Hossa over Franzen after 2009.

 

Since the 2008-09 season Hossa has 208 pts in 231 regular season games (90%), Franzen 150 pts in 208 games (72%). Hossa has a cap hit of $5,275,000, Franzen $3,954,545. Franzen get's paid 75% of what Hossa does.

 

I wouldn't even say hindsight is 20/20, because for dollar value, it's even.

 

Lets not forget to mention, Hossa is the best defensive elite winger in the league. Franzen is.... yeah, Franzen.

I choose to believe that really he just picked the topic at random as a thinly veiled excuse to start another line combo thread.
