#2568548 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 February 2015 - 03:58 PM

Nevermind, the rumor originated from the @HockeyInsiderr twitter account...




I still think we could move our 1st rounder for one year for something we need now and not endanger our future with all the talent we have developing.  I think it would be worth the risk.  Even if Franson left.  Although, he would see that once you come here, and the money is available, there is no real reason to leave...


As much as I've come along on the Franson thing I would not trade a first rounder for an upcoming UFA, unless it's someone of an even higher calibre and that guy is not available. Franson is from BC so I could easily see him signing with the Canucks come the off-season. A second and a B level prospect might be worth it because the benefits would be a.) ~ 2 months of exclusively negotations and b.) being able to offer him 8 instead of 7 years ( = more money).


He has the size to bring back Kronwalled although it would be Franson(ed) but either way a nice addition.

Kenny actually works the phones? Maybe for hookers and pizza...

I thought that was Hudler. ;)

I'd rather see him make a good hockey trade rather than a trade for the sake of making a trade.

Trash into trash = trash flavored trash.

#2450148 Helm in, Franzen out against the Oil tonight!

Posted by GoalieManPat on 02 November 2013 - 05:40 PM

I'm usually pretty hard on Franzen, but I don't think he's played that bad this year. But he really needs a center that can get him the puck, otherwise he disappears.


Im going to disagree here. I think this is the worse Franzen has looked in quite a while. Hes shown up for basically the Colorado game. The rest he has been completely invisible. A guy his size should be able to impact the game without a center force feeding him the puck. Whether its taking it to the net himself or using his body to create for others. I honestly dont think Franzen cares about anything but picking up his paycheck anymore. His comments before about the regular season boring him and then his defense for not scoring last year being "Well Im not supposed to be a goal scorer anyways" just makes me believe it even more. Remember he came into the league as a strong workhorse player. Nothing in his game now resembles that. And to think the Wings could have had Hossa.

He's got over 4 million cap hit and is on par for under 25 points.  That's playing pretty bad.

#2322552 Doan staying in PHX 4 yrs $21.2 mill

Posted by St. Michael (the Red Wing) on 27 July 2012 - 06:01 PM

vladdy 100% agree with your post.. I remember the dead wings of the 70's, some fans just don''t know how good they have it.

My dad told me in the late 70's early 80's the Red Wings were called the Detroit Chicken Wings. Cause we were a bunch of *******. Maybe things haven't changed? :P

Nah like I said pipe dream for Doan.

Can Phoenix afford to sign him to a 4 year 30 million deal? If so HOW?

#2322291 Jakub Voracek Re-signs with Philadelphia

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 26 July 2012 - 06:58 PM

4-year deal worth $4.2 million per year, according to TSN. He's only 22, and will likely get some powerplay time this year, considering Jagr is gone.

#2316657 Def trade on the horizon

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 07 July 2012 - 03:50 AM

Only one of the teams you listed actually have 9 d-men signed, but don't let the facts get in the way of starting a thread.

All 3 have 9 D signed, do you want names?

#2313700 Suter Watch: Decision today, down to Wings/Wild

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 July 2012 - 02:18 PM

My hope is given the developments today that Suter is done waiting on Parise to make up his mind and in a sense, forcing his hand. If Suter signs with Detroit, all of a sudden we become even more attractive than the 90-100 million other reasons we're currently offering Zach.

Lets hope this is true. Suter seems more of a "no nonsense" type compared to parise who is whipped by his fiancé.

#2313321 Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 July 2012 - 09:32 PM

God I hope we land Suter.... Land him and trade for Nash.... Bingo!

#2311619 Ilitch, Chelios to fly to Suter, Holland to fly to Parise

Posted by VM1138 on 01 July 2012 - 08:35 AM

Great news. I doubt we'll see any decisions made today, though. I've been looking forward to the start of free agency, but that's all this is: the start. Could still be a long summer.

#2250760 Dreger's mailbag

Posted by chrisdetroit on 30 January 2012 - 05:52 PM



Well of course they fought more times in the playoffs. They played more games Duh!

You can't compare teams that played fewer games with teams that played more games and get a valid statistical comparison. That's like comparing the number or murders in New York with the number in Ishpeming.

How come it seems like almost every thread descends into a fighter/non-figher/toughness/soft/grit debate. I understand that the guys mentioned in Dreger's article would add some grit but still. . .


Because there are a lot of LGW members that yearn for the old days when there was more fighting in hockey. That game is gone and many people on here don't want to accept that.
