In Topic: Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

With Oilers Dman Petry being a healthy scratch - makes me think he'll soon become a Red Wing.

Makes me think they're just trying to protect an asset from getting hurt & forcing him off the trade market,  Doesn't mean there's anything pending with Petry at all, especially with the Wings.

Has anything from actual sources suggested his career could be cut short or is it just speculation from fans? I haven't followed this closely, but I also haven't heard anything remotely official about this, and I would've thought that'd be a little bit bigger news around here if true.

 

Speculation but given the fact that he's out for another extended period of time because of headaches, signs are kind of pointing in that direction are they not?

Isn't there a clause in the CBA that prevents teams from buying out injured players?  If he hasn't recovered from whatever's going on with him, Wings may not have that option, even if they did want to execute it.

 

You are absolutely correct.  That was actually the reason the Wings had to play out the string with Sammy's contract.  He was still considered injured during the buyout window.  

 

It's sounding more & more though that Franzen's career could very well be cut short by concussion symptoms.  If that's the case, the Wings will get cap relief with the sole exception that they'll need to be at or below the cap with Franzen's salary included for one day at the start of each season which is what Philly & Boston have to do with the Pronger & Savard situations.  Well, that is until the trolls in NHL HQ decide to change that rule too eventually.

Great.  Can't wait to see what abomination they come up with to use as the jerseys...
 
On a related note, the Kings will wear white pants for this year's Stadium Series, the first team since the 1974 Washington Capitals to do so...

That so looks like a toddler's onesie to me


In Topic: Brodeur retires. Named Sr. Advisor to Blues GM

Terry Sawchuk

Dominik Hasek

Glenn Hall

Martin Brodeur?

 

 

Wings have had more legendary goalies suit up than any other franchise.  

 

So maybe the Wings should also sign Ken Dryden or Vladislav Tretiak to back up Brodeur after they trade for him to add to their number of legendary goalies?
