#2651818 2016 Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by amato on Today, 12:19 PM


Christian Ehrhoff on waivers.

I haven't followed his situation at all. Worth a gamble or does he have a bad contract vs level of play?

Only signed for this year at 1.5 mill.. I don't know how he's looked on the ice but if he's getting waived, I'd guess not great. The stats kind of back that up too.. 2 g, 9 a, & -10 in 40 games in LA this year.

Holland is there to kick some tires.



Those poor tires never saw it coming.... 



KRS, I'd LOVE to land Trouba. Real young and chalk full of potential. Plus isn't he right handed and also from Rochester, MI?? Sounds like a holland target to me :D

I think nyq oulette and a first would definitely get it done. I'd be sad to see nyq go but ya gotta give up something to get something of course.. or however that one goes.

Hey, he scored two goals that should impress Wings fans.  He actually went to the net on one goal and actually scored on a breakaway on another.  Two things most of our players don't seem capable of doing.  


More allstar goals than crosby.  :clap:

not sure if this has been mentioned, but it appears the jets are done trying to negotiate with ladd and have turned their focus to buff..



Pretty compelling stuff here from TSN senior correspondent Gary Lawless on the rocky relationship between Winnipeg and captain Andrew Ladd:


Talks with Ladd’s agents have broken off. In the meantime, Jets’ GM Kevin Cheveldayoff was recently seen huddling with defenceman Dustin Byfuglien’s representative.

Winnipeg has chosen Buff ahead of Ladd. It’s a reversal in direction that must have surprised the captain and his teammates.

Lawless goes on to report that relations between Ladd and the Jets have “soured,” adding the 30-year-old pending UFA is seeking a six-year extension “with an average annual value north of $6 million.”

Abby recently wrote a player's tribune article about what it was like scoring the national championship winning goal in college; figured I'd share. 


Pretty good article from the Player's Tribune, as always. Enjoy :)

Finally the Larkin-Datsyuk-Tatar line! :D stoked for that (sorry if they've been rolling with that line, I haven't been able to watch the last couple games) but wooo!

A win and we're within a point of first in the division. LGW!

#2648933 And your NHL All-Star Division Captains are....

Looks like he's going to be the captain of the Atlantic division. Yay!

Still Pacific division. But still yay! :P

Arizona seems like as good of a place as any for Larkin's first career hatty. :D  LGW!!

you can retain cap hit in a trade (up to 50%) along with salary.... otherwise, there would barely be a point to it.

If that's true he left some money on the table, man what a great contract. Big rugged, physical center who isn't even in his prime yet and can score like a god but this also means Looch will hit UFA :)

I want nothing to do with Lucic and his cheap shots and s***ty penalties. If he came here and cut that out though, I guess I could live with it with the rest of what he brings to the table. I'd prefer some of the other physical names that have been mentioned (Ladd for example).

If only JVR would hit free agency.. that's the dream :P

Haha really was hoping he'd make it to free agency though.. I know I know, pipe dream :P

I agree with not trading Dekeyser..

And if Ericsson, ouellet, and a first got it done, I'd do that in a heartbeat. I think they'd want more. Maybe retaining salary on Ericsson gets that one done..?

But I thought I heard somewhere that they wanted center depth? Can't confirm a source for that but that's something we have plenty of.. Maybe there is a deal to be done for shattenkirk. I'd be stoked.
