#2504162 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 31 March 2014 - 01:20 PM

This thread makes me long for someone to vomit on my eyeballs so I don't have to read it.

Or I could not click on it, but dammit I'm on mobile and I hate having that one bolded thread...watching me...taunting me...beckoning me into its darkness...

Sorry, what were we talking about? Oh yeah. I'm glad we got Legwand. Wish Jarnkrok all the best, because apparently his best was never going to be here.

You make it sound like legwand is a star ... Let's be honest over here ... Will he have a long nhl career ? Yes ... But for a first overall nhl pick he's a bust ... A bust in the sense that when you get a first overall nhl pick your expecting and hoping that player is a franchise player that will carry the team and be super dominant and he hasn't

Him being nashvilles best player of all time isn't saying much , that team has been good for many years in the back end but never had any good scoring threats upfront .... Again legwand is good but like I said before he's a perfect third line center in a very good team .... Low and behold he's on the 3rd line now and what's worse is our big guns haven't even returned yet

This is the whole stephen weiss crap again .... A lot of People gave me s*** here for saying Weiss was overrated from day 1 and yes it's still soon but so far we can say it's been a disaster

You can say whatever you want about jarnkrok being a future bottom 6 .... facts are we gave up on top 3 prospect for a soon to be 34 yr old ufa which is absolute nonsense ... I would of rather called him up and see what would of happened , I'm pretty sure he'd have more games with pts than legwand has so far seeing how he's done with nobody's in Nashville and seeing how he had experience playing with nyquist sheahan jurco dekeyser etc ...

He's gone now so all we can do is accept the trade and or vent about it .... I'm pissed but I accept that it's done ... I just want jarnkrok to continue and dominate so we think hard next time about giving up a top prospect in our system

We all have our own opinions and that's mine and it won't change



I'm really, really, really, really, really tired of people trashing Weiss.  Really tired of it.  Were you also one of the ones saying Colaiacovo sucked? People seem unable to separate injuries from quality of play.  Both Cola and Weiss are very good players.  But Cola was injured so he "sucked."  Not playing due to injuries does not equal sucking.  Because he's injured for a season, and played with the injury in a new system early in the year, some people want to say he sucks. At no time in Weiss' career has he sucked, or been overrated.  He's been overlooked for the most part.


Right now, he's an X-factor of sorts because we don't know when he's coming back or if he'll be 100% this season, but that's about all I think anyone can say about him right now.  If we look at his career the chances of him bouncing back look very good.


And Legwand is a solid top 6 guy.  Yes, on a stacked team it'd be best to place him on the third line.  In the sense that he'd be VERY dangerous there.  I think people are just not understanding that he's not a goal scorer. He's a playmaker.


In addition to all the panic about trading Jarnkrok, we're forgetting that we won't ever personally suffer from that trade.  He's on Nashville.  Even if he becomes a star, it's unlikely that team will ever truly be good, and we'll only have to worry about them in a potential Finals matchup, the odds of that happening are very slim.  So we miss out on a potentially good center.  Well, we can get one from Europe this summer (there's a guy over there who we're rumored to be looking into), or trade for another one if need be.  But I don't know if he'll be better than Weiss or Legwand for several years.  So it's not a bad trade.  Maybe a little overpayment but it was necessary to address the needs of the team, and it doesn't hurt us for a year or two, if ever.

Better than most staged fights...

We're losing momentum. Quick, somebody jump on the ice and shoot the puck with your crotch.

OMG how did I miss out on this? *bangs head on desk*


Why bang your own head when you could get Neal to do it for you?

On second look it does look like a delayed reaction from Malkin

it wouldn't matter delayed or not, the guy doesn't have any balls.

I'm sorry, what's going on?  Did I miss a memo that said you had to debate "penalty calls" with a fan of the opposing team who just lost to our AHL team?  Scoreboard my man!

Nothing brings folks together more than unyielding hatred.  You're a lucky man.


Don't worry, we will never stoop to getting our own names on jerseys. At least I won't!

Like I said, have you seen him pass?  It might well be a bad thing.


Whatever man. Smith's passes are usually tape-to-tape.


Just ask Ryan Smyth.

My best guess is that the Wings realized Jarny was never gonna be big enough for the NHL

They should convince radulov to come here to play with datsyuk they played good together at the olympics

It wasn't Radulov, and no thanks.  He's a headcase and a terrible team player. 


Someone's gotta say it...


Since trading away Jarnkrok, the Red Wings now face a tough decision.  Who is the next player (aside from Mantha) that will be a star for the Griffins after their season is over.  The answer is very simple.  Hampus Melen will report to GR this year!  There's your next headline people...just have to print the newspapers.  :D

Now THIS is the Let's Go Wings I know and love. The panic. The justifications. The embiggened anti or pro Holland posters posting, the reasoning, the speculation.


Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, now that's more like it. 



And for what it's worth, when it comes to Jarnkrok there aren't a whole lot of guys making grand careers for themselves in the NHL that the Wings gave up on/got rid of/traded at his age. There have been a couple but in assessing talent the Wings aren't exactly the Islanders either...

How much value do you guys put on Eaves?! Even with all these injuries he barely cracks the lineup.
