#2490687 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by DannyD on 05 March 2014 - 03:53 PM

If it is in fact Jarnkrok I would've rather brought him up and played him in Detroit than trade for Legwand.

The Wings haven't released official details yet, the Nashville beat guys are speculating. Kenny wouldn't trade our only high end C in our system for a rental, at a deadline where the price for players was so low. But if he did, he needs to retire NOW

The Mike Weaver for a 5th and the Hemsky for a 3rd and 5th could have made this team MUCH better than we are now... Holland is smooching the pooch today. 

If you really think so you know very little about hockey. Not only could those 3rd and 5ths turn into players like Jurco, Tatar, Nyquist, Oullet, Sproul etc. , but Weaver and Hemsky would not fill any need we have on the team right now. 

#2489921 3/4 GDT: Red Wings at Devils

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 05 March 2014 - 07:35 AM

Howard has 13 wins in March. It hasn't been completely his fault, and he's battled injuries. But that just isn't good enough, especially when you factor in his numbers. Really, if not for Gus, we'd be completely out of the race. With so many guys out of the line-up, Howard needs to be good every night. And his top pair (Kronwall-Ericsson) can't have albatross games out of the blue, points are too important.

#2489333 Luongo to Panthers

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 04 March 2014 - 05:01 PM

Roberto Luongo confirms he has been traded to Florida. Signing papers right now. #Tradecentre

14 years after they traded for him the first time around.


Is there an application I can fill out to become Vancouver's next GM?


If you can complete a basic job application you may very well be overqualified. 

#2443995 Monday 1 PM start time?

Posted by 55fan on 13 October 2013 - 03:33 PM

It's for me.


Gary and I were having lunch last summer and I mentioned that I work evenings and have to miss games.  He said that he'd like to put one in the afternoon for me, but that people wouldn't be home to see it.

I told him to have one on the 14th because it's Thanksgiving in Canada.  Once we established that Canada is a country north (mostly) of the US, and that they watch hockey there and spend money on the sport, he agreed that revenue was good, so the date was set.

I told him to be sure to have two Canadian teams, but he doesn't remember that the league has any since the only time that he pays attention is when being booed when giving the silvery thing that's taller than he is to a smelly man in shorts and long socks (at least that's the part that he sees).


I assured him that if he had to use two American teams for the game, that it would be ok since it's Columbus Day in the US.  Despite his obvious marketing talent, I managed to convince him that Columbus playing on Columbus Day would not mean that the league would get over 90% of the television market because Columbus (the team) sucks.


He was amazed to learn that Columbus Day was not named after the BJ's (a subject near and dear to his heart - or the organ that stands in for one in his case).


Upon learning that all school children in the US learn (erroneously) that Columbus discovered America, he thought that this man Columbus deserved a daytime game to commemorate his great feat.


It was a beautiful moment.  Bettman actually showed some emotion when he pondered what would have happened had Columbus not been the first person in America (see erroneous data above).  His heart broke at the thought of all of those buildings in New York that would be sitting empty since there were no people here before Columbus (see erroneous data above).  The loss of revenue floored him, and he declared that a daytime game was indeed proper and fitting.


So now you know.

#2434756 Franzen: "I am not a goal scorer"

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 September 2013 - 10:18 PM


well i said 60 points cause you said a better player fora couple million more, but you never did show me that player


There probably isn't one, but you're also missing the point.


Franzen could be a lot better than 30 goals and 60 points.  With that kind of shot, that kind of frame and those kind of linemates, I'm going to channel Mickey Redmond when I say that Franzen should be on a scoring pace of 40 goals every season these last couple of years.  He should be hard to play against every game, which he never seems to be.    


You're basically admitting that he's an underachiever who's worth all he's paid.  So am I.  I'm just not happy about it, because he could be better (probably too late now that he's in his 30's).  The guy has talent, but doesn't play hard enough every game.  I can't excuse that just because he makes as much money as other 30 goal scorers around the league.  Those other guys around the league don't have his physical talents.  He's untapped potential.     



And that's why many posters here don't like him.  Nobody wants to see a guy scoring two goals one night, and then looking lost and disinterested the next 5 games.  Regardless of what he's paid and who else around the league makes what.

Are you kidding me? How is he a diver let alone a whiner? 

The question is, are you kidding? He's been a diving whiner since his rookie season. And it's only gotten worse with age. Just so happens he is also a very talented goal scoring machine.

I'd give a ******** to play for Detroit too.  I just haven't decided whose.


I hate the waiting game.

#2427376 Dan Cleary Watch

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 05 July 2013 - 03:35 PM

i am beyond amazed at how much interest there has been in cleary by all these different teams. unbelievable


Probably because he's not as bad as a lot of people here make him out to be. 


He put up 9 goals and 15 points in 48 games and 10 points in 14 playoff games.  There's no questioning his compete level, toughness and heart. That can still help a lot of teams.  It's just a matter of his health and what role you want him to play.

#2426199 Grabovski Bought Out

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 July 2013 - 09:16 PM


Grabovski has exactly one fight in his NHL career.


One more than Filppula!

#2426073 Grabovski Bought Out

Posted by wings_fanatic on 04 July 2013 - 06:39 PM

Grabo kind of reminds me of when Semin was available and had the floater reputation. If we could get him for under 4, I bet he would flourish with Pavel. The risk is small and the reward is great!


Floater? Grabo does not float around... he competes every single shift. He had an off year this season, but if you watched him he competes regularly. Even in the playoffs, while he was getting knocked around he continued to get up and compete. He does NOT float around like Semin. Also, he is a very good friend of Pavs, so hopefully Pavs can talk him and Kenny into some sort of an agreement because he would be a great fit here

#2425869 Trade/Buyout thread

Posted by dat's sick on 04 July 2013 - 01:39 PM

Huge trade in the works. Boston and Dallas close on a deal sending Tyler Seguin to Stars for Loui Eriksson. Other parts involved as well.



Jim Nill showing Holland how its done.

Seguin is promising but damn... Eriksson is a great two-way player, really really solid and complete player. Boston would look so good with Bergeron+Eriksson.
