#2577357 Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

Safe to say, deal or no deal, this is one of the most exciting deadlines the Wings have had since at least 07 or 08.

#2577295 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by kipwinger on Today, 10:54 AM

More evidence that Holland has lost it.


Petry was just traded for a 2nd and a conditional 5th to the Habs.

The type of player they were hoping to get, a basic upgrade on Alexi


Holland gives up two, players that could have at least added depth or grown in trade value AND a second for a player 10 years older who is arguably as good as Cleary when you have decent depth to begin with... 


Not saying it was a damaging trade... it just is another example where another team is able to get more for less. 


Cole is arguably as good as Cleary? 




Zero credibility after saying that. 

"@Bill_Roose: Erik Cole will wear No. 72 in Detroit. He'll be first #RedWings player to don that number since Motor City Smitty (Brad Smith) in 1984-85."


Why O Why isn't Brendan Smith nicknamed "Motor City Smitty"?  I'd cut him some slack if this could catch on. 

According to THN, the Leafs want Smith for Phaneuf...any takers?

If it only takes Jurco, a lesser prospect and a pick Phaneuf would be nice. Physical veteran with a nice shot I would like that trade but he would have to waive right?


I agree this is a very realistic trade. 


We don't have alot of picks to work with though. Trading a first gives us no high picks in a deep draft. 




If JVR comes to Detroit, I would lose my s*** haha  :) geterrr done, Kenny. 


I agree, always liked JVR. I knew it was a steal as soon as TOR landed him from Philly. Reilly is also a stud defender but TOR has no reason to trade him

I keep telling myself nothing will happen. That all my anticipation will be met with anticlimax like it does every year, but I just can't stop myself from checking for updates every so often.

Ever try Maple Leafs Tea?  It costs a fortune, but doesn't come with a Cup.  :yowza:

Like I suppose you can do better than going into the team with the best record's rink and TAKING a win in the third period. Most decent I must say!!


#2575613 Sounds like the New York "Islanders" are no more...

Only replace this fisherman guy with the Brooklyn Brawler





That would be the new logo.

Not as interesting as it's going to be when the Capital trade for Alex Semin.  According to rumors the Hurricanes are willing to eat a significant portion of his salary in a trade.  Elsewhere, the rumor mill is stating that the Caps want a scoring winger for their top line.  I'm calling it now.  Semin back to Washington with 50% salary retained by Carolina.  Between that and the Clarkson/Horton trade, this deadline is starting to get sillier by the second.

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


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

That 3rd line could actually do some damage.  Get Jurco setting up the Holy Clapper all night.

Who is staying up late for this one?

I'll be up all night.

Understandable. But right now what we need is not in the AHL, especially with the playoffs looming.  If he makes a couple trades to fill these holes now, theres a good month to get used to playing in the Wings system before the playoffs. Some trades work great, others blow up. But once again, its all about taking chances. Perron could have sucked on the Pens, but he's been great for them.


Our kids are only going to get better and were only going to have more of them on the team soon enough. Pens are selling the future for now.


But they have younger stars than us so they're in a different situation. I'd rather be loaded with solid home grown talent when Datsyuk and Z retire, instead of a buncha mediocre deadline acquistions.
