#2491238 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by darkmanx on 05 March 2014 - 07:09 PM

 

#1 Holland literally said he would not trade prospects for rentals. 

 

#2 Saying he's the best center traded right now is like being the prettiest girl at fat camp. It really doesn't mean that much. 

 

#3 This team is not a better position right now than it was in last night. They were a bubble team last night that would get bounced by Boston or Pittsburgh. After this trade they are now a bubble team that will get bounced by Boston or Pittsburgh. They might have increased their chances of being the 8th place team by a bit, but the inverse of that is they also dropped their drafting position. And all this without increasing their odds of winning a cup.

 

He also said that when Datsyuk was day to day and Helm was not injured.

 

If Weiss cannot allow us to play D and Z together, Legwand will while providing us with good defense and offense.

All doom and gloom around here.

 

I think Legwand can be a 50-65 point guy for Detroit, while playing a good two way game. Helm cannot be relied upon anymore it seems so this deal makes sense if he signs another contract with us.

Ericsson needs to get his head out of his ass. He's been terrible since before the Olympics.

#2488908 Trade Deadline Prediction Time

Posted by darkmanx on 03 March 2014 - 07:04 PM

I honestly don't think that Holland has the option to stand pat or kick tires. We are really close to not making the playoffs for the 1st time in 23 years. dats is pkaying on 1 leg, Z is done for the year and Weiss....well, you know what I am saying.
I truly believe that he will make a huge push for Edler or Erhoff.
We need that crisp first pass. We need to activate the D and get them involved without playing too risky. On the integrity of this franchise, I can't believe that he won't give up a 1st rounder, a roster player and a prospect to give this team a chance to make a run.
If he doesn't, I really will have lost all faith in the guy.

 

It takes two to tango. Gillis will want too much for Edler, just like he did Luongo. Buffalo will want too much for Ehrhoff knowing they will be facing him for years to come in the same division, not to mention they want young, talented players (Nyquist, Tatar, Jurco) and draft picks.

 

If what I am hearing from Sportsnet about Datsyuk missing quite a bit of time it would not be wise to trade those kids for anything. Let the kids play, let's see what they can do. They have played amazing the past two games and are obviously up for the challenge to keep the streak alive.

 

I leave you with a quote from Tatar after the Olympics.

 

 

- One for my dad. I am so glad I could be a part of Slovak Olympic team. It was a great experience and I have many grat memories from Sochi. We didn’t have our best tournament and we are all disappointed as we expected more. Once you are on the top and once you are on the bottom. It is a sport. I am in Detroit already and I am enjoying my couple days off and getting ready to finish the season well. The upcoming schedule looks scary and it is going to be difficult as we have many games in a short period of time and our key players are injured. It is going to be hard without Henrik (40) but I believe we can do it. It would not be good if the Red Wings didn’t get in the playoffs. Keep your fingers crossed, I believe we can do it. Thank you for standing next to us and cheering for us even though it wasn’t ideal at the Olympics.

#2487957 Why did Franzen get 10 min game misconduct?

Posted by darkmanx on 28 February 2014 - 06:28 PM

It's obvious he was protecting him from further injury. He, like all of us want more curly fries this season.

So anyone else think that Jurco has locked down his spot on the big club next season already?  Personally, I would rather see some of the prospects out of waiver eligibility next season be exposed (i.e. Callahan, Ferraro, Almquist) than have him start the season in GR.

 

Yep. Watching him yesterday I was thinking to myself, wow wait until this kid has a couple years experience in the NHL, he's going to be "real good" for us. He's big, fast, strong, hits, wicked shot, good stick handling, good vision.

Ottawa have the worst broadcasters in thef****** league, wish it wasn't on cable tonight so I could hear Ken and Mick.

 

haha. I hate them. Dennis Potvin is one of the biggest homers. I don't know who's worse Jon Garett or Potvin.

 

Oh btw, Jared Cowen is a douchebag.

 

 

That is all.

Bertuzzi and Cleary haven't played in forever. They're on the team they need to play occasionally. Back to back games after 2 weeks off I'm surprised more guys aren't getting a night off

 

Sorry, but I disagree. Cleary and Bert don't need to play occasionally unless we are searching for a top pick. If Babs is going to play them, play them where they should be. Nyquist should be on the top line.

Wow Tatar is really really good.
