#2577787 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by darkmanx on Today, 07:41 PM

Nyquist sucks in the top six. He's a sweetheart, but a waif. Let him eat up third line opposition while the adults do the hard work against the big boys.

 

I agree. Right now Nyquist isn't playing too good. Making a lot of bad decisions. Let him get some more scoring and get some confidence back then see where you go from there.

Im just curious, how is Coburn worth a 1st and a third + Gudas who can put up points and play hard. 

 

If anything, the trade may be even but i don't see how its a robbery. I also don't know much about Coburn but i don't think hes that good. Could be wrong

 

I wouldn't even say it's even. No way did Yzerman do good on that Coburn trade.

I can't wait to see who we acquire in our next trade, in the year 2019.

I don't want anymore additions to this team unless we lose guys like weiss andersen miller kindl off our lineups

Dread to think what we'd give up next for some one who's not a 36 yr old ufa

Doesn't mean everything Kenny does is gold

 

Please point out where I said that in my post. However last year it was the exact same thing when they traded Jarnkrok, you were angry about that as well stating how great he was going to be. Do you want to stay mediocre forever while we hope Backman comes back and Janmark hopefully become an elite center behind Larkin, AA, Sheahan... we can't keep everyone. Cole makes a better team right now. If Helm misses a lot of time who will replace him? Cole is still pretty quick. Yea, 33 points in 57 games isn't too bad either.

With backman retreating back I could live with that ... Janmark has upside for 2 yrs and now it's like whatever let's just give him away for an old ufa cause we still have good prospects

Rather of traded him if we had to in a deal that would be more than a ufa

In 2 yrs if we get outed again 1st round we lost 2 2nds janmark backman jarnkrok for 2 guys who quite possibly don't return and a 3rd rounder

And I just noticed we gave away 3 swedish guys ...are we suddenly giving up on the swedes? Lol

Yea, I know who I'm going with.

As obviously bad as the Cleary call was this year it was worse last year when Tatar and Nyquist were left out of the line up to accommodate Samuelsson, Cleary, Totoo, Bertuzzi etc..the beginning of the season. Some actually defended Holland saying both kids needed time to grow. I have zero faith in Holland and his ability to make the correct decision. I'd love to see a trade to solidify the blue line but judging on past choices we are probably better off without him making a move. 

 

You have no faith in a guy that has made the playoffs for two decades now? Wow we are extremely spoiled. Would hate to see how many people jump off the bandwagon if we missed the playoffs for a couple years.

Marchenko had another solid game. Really impressed by him so far.

Nyquist was absolutely terrible tonight. Way too many cute plays and turnovers. He needs to play simple and take shots and go to the net.

#2567820 Ovechkin joins elite company

Posted by darkmanx on 02 February 2015 - 03:19 PM

 

Well I have only really been a Wings fan and if Tatar or Nyquist or pretty much any other winger not named Franzen played like Ovechkin did/does they wouldn't be around.  Two way players is in my opinion the only way hockey should be played and all the rest of those guys are one trick ponies who sit in the slot or on the dot most the game waiting for a good pass or cherry pick waiting for a pass to score easy.  Just not my thing.

 

Do you even watch Ovechkin? He is one of the most exciting players game in and out. I watched the Washington vs Montreal game the other day, and he was everywhere and hit the post 3 times, dekeing past 4 defenders and flying up the ice trying different things to get through. The media might show you a couple clips of him standing around, that doesn't summarize him. He is also a great passer but doesn't have any finishers (Backstrom is like Datsyuk, wide open net and he will pass to someone else).

 

Couple of quotes from Montreal players after the game:

 

"I've lined up beside him a few times," Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher said. "I actually tried to hit him a couple of times. That didn't go well."

 

Next up, Canadiens center Lars Eller

"Yeah, I've tried," he said. "He's hard as a rock. It's like hitting a wall."

 

How about you, Max Pacioretty?

"I tried to hit him once and you just can't," he said. "He's a monster, with elite skill in all facets of the game."

 

Red Wings would open their arms right up if Ovi wanted to play for them, let's not pretend they wouldn't because all he does "he stands at the dot".
