#2577780 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by amato on Yesterday, 07:00 PM

Would like to see them rest Quincey a few games and roll with....

Kronner-Smith
DD-Zid
Ericsson-Marchenko

Gives Smith a little more responsibility; hopefully he runs with it.

DD-Zid I have a feeling would be a great pairing.

And Ericsson on the bottom pairing gives Marchenko more of a veteran presence.


I think it's at least worth a try like that. If Quincey needs some more rest anyway.

Kessel on pavs wing would be magic. Babs should be able to get him to be less of a hack too. Ha doubt it happens but who knows.

 
Emmerton +7th for Kessel Phaneuf and Rielly!


Too uneven.. They better throw jvr in too to sweeten the deal.

Red Wings DID explore Dion Phaneuf but it's as close to a no-go as it gets. Not giving up top prospects for Dion & NOT taking full salary.

Lots of discussion though. DRW's almost certain to add someone on blueline. Have poked at both Keith Yandle & Jack Johnson but not close.

Leafs would have considered taking Franzen back in a package deal. Not as bad off as Horton, obviously, but shadow of former self.


Tires.

Kickin' hard or hardly kickin'? ;)

I'm not a doctor, but I do know that a broken collar bone that requires surgery will most likely see the full 3 months needed to heal properly (keep in mind - a 'clean' non-displaced clavicle fracture would require the patient to wear a brace to immobilize the shoulder to allow the bone to heal, and that usually takes 6 weeks).
 
In other words - unless the Hawks have a deep playoff run - Kane will be out until the Conference Finals.


Alright yeah. Maybe I was a little off on the time but, even without Kane, I wouldn't be surprised if they're in the conference final.. at which point their roster could be impossibly stacked with the addition of another player or two.

Just thought it was an interesting storyline leading up to playoffs..

LeBrun on the Wings
 
"I think if Detroit can get Petry for a second-round pick or a middling prospect, then sure, maybe theres a deal. But theyre not giving up one of their top youngsters. I dont think the Wings feel the return is worth it."

Agree 100%. Maybe if Petry were signed through a couple more seasons but he doesn't bring enough to the table to trade any more than a second when Holland can just sign him this off season.

Personally, I'd rather see our bottom six be:

Pulks-Weiss-Jurco
Miller-Glendog-Andy

See if that third line can get a little offense going.

#2574893 Patrick Kane, out anywhere from a month to rest of the season

Posted by amato on 25 February 2015 - 08:21 PM

 
Long as the player(s) they pick up are UFA. If not, they'd have to do some scrambling before next season to get Kane back in and be under the cap. Plus either way they lose whatever assets they gave up to fetch those guys. I guess it could be worth it for a shot at another cup, especially if Kane gets back while they're still playing...


Yeah I was definitely thinking UFA(s).. and they'd have to give up some assets. So it'd definitely be a bit of a gamble. Depends on how they feel about their shot at the cup this year I suppose.


#2574363 Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

Posted by amato on 24 February 2015 - 11:54 AM

Howard will start the next two years at least, mraz will start backup duties next season.

After that, they'll split time for a year.. riding the hot goalie.

Then consider trading howard during/after that season when he has one year left on his contract.

 

That's what I think anyway.. depending on the wings' cap situation and if Mraz develops like he's expected to. 

 

 

 

To answer the original question though, yes. obviously howard is our playoff goalie. 

He's had a couple rough games.. it happens to all goalies; especially ones coming off of injury. 

There's plenty of time for him to get hot before playoffs start.

Just heard them mention that big E donates $50 per hit to charity helping under privileged children. That's so awesome.

Yeah, but will he re-sign? Would Holland offer what hes worth or low-ball him again?
 
Stemming from those comments there could be some tension once its time for contract talks

Judging by Quincys contract extension at the time he signed it, I don't think Holland would lowball him..
