#2379987 Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

Red Wings only "F"

But LGW is crazy! LGW is overreacting doom sayers!

Some of us don't want to wait for 2nd tier prospects to ripen while our generational talents age and retire.




#2379956 Holland retirement watch?

Posted by Number19 on 03 April 2013 - 09:13 PM

Suddenly his current plan doesn't seem so retarded. One can hope.

I agree with this. Shero will look stupid if they get bounced early.

They got bounced early last year with the exact same team that went streaking. Being a powerhouse in the regular season means nothing if you aren't built for a 7 game series. As Wings fans this should hit close to home.

umm, not really. They hate losing Dorsett. And Brassard is currently tearing it up with New York tonight.

 

New York might have became a better team.

 

Gaborik also has a ton of injury history, how do you think we'd be feeling right now if his back/hip/groin started to act up?

He'd fit right in.




#2379861 Shocking, Wings aren't active as trade deadline expires

Sell what exactly?

#2379855 time to trade filppula?

Posted by Number19 on 03 April 2013 - 06:23 PM

Why does everyone think that a bottom pairing defenseman that has been a healthy scratch for quite a few games this season is worth a second round pick?

Because Regehr commanded two.

Either we're a rebuilding team that plays plugs over prospects and doesn't trade ufas for picks or we're a reloading team that doesn't use it's massive capspace for anything but the occasional veteran retread. Genius.

Umm....'07-'09 was by no means "middling". Unless you mean when he was still an advisor...

Obviously after he left as an adviser. Also led with the rise of Chicago as the elite team in the division.


#2379778 time to trade filppula?

Well if we were a 15th seed at least we'd be getting a Seth Jones


#2379750 Could Kenny be working on something HUGE?

Posted by Number19 on 03 April 2013 - 04:17 PM

Kenny working? On something huge? Not unless it involves a returning underachieving Red Wing. The balls of this organization left when Scotty went to Chicago.


#2378335 Bouwmeester to Blues

Posted by Number19 on 01 April 2013 - 09:11 PM

Reto Berra a Swiss goalie, never played in N.America,. Mark Cundari, a small, undrafted, 22-YO D-man, 3 years in AHL

lol




#2378197 Regehr to Kings. Per Dreger

Posted by Number19 on 01 April 2013 - 08:32 PM

Traded to Buffalo by Calgary with Ales Kotalik and Calgary's 2nd round choice (Jake McCabe) in 2012 Entry Draft for Chris Butler and Paul Byron, June 25, 2011.

Buffalo got more value for him than the Flames did 2 years ago. :lol:




#2378192 Bouwmeester to Blues

Posted by Number19 on 01 April 2013 - 08:28 PM

They have 26 million in cap space to re-sign people with Bouwmeester.

 

he's worth it.

The Detroit model is always have 30+ mil freed up cap space go to waste cause you never know with the salary cap era. ;) Heaven forbird we use it with our core locked up in lifetime contracts. Might need to overpay for the Carlo Colaiacovos of the world. :eh:




#2376483 Huskins to Flyers for conditional 7th rd pick (2014)

Posted by Number19 on 30 March 2013 - 03:38 PM

I don't think we want Oveckin with his cap hit and his career decline.

Eh, I'll take a flyer on a once in a generation two time Hart winning superstar and pair up 2 of the top 3 russian players of the last 10 years. His career decline is masively overrated. Still under 30 playing in a defensive first dump and chase team (why that is I'll have no idea). You can have your cap-restricted by a lot worse options.

Five goals, five assists, no defensive acumen, no physicality, and no special area of skill means no takers at $3m.

Kenny's ideal player. Get er done Kenny!
