#2648982 2016 Trade Deadline Thread

There's no need to go after a 4th line guy when you have plenty of youth waiting to get in from Grand Rapids. Nosek, Aubry, AA are good sized centermen

Honestly, I'm waiting for Lombardi to somehow manage to void Dustin Brown's contract so that he can re-sign Lucic.

Actually, I lied. I know exactly why it happens.

It's because these guys covet other team's star players that play a particular brand of hockey they long to see again in Detroit. They convince themselves that these players must be acquired at any cost (other than, you know, actually parting with the assets that would be required to do so) They then scour the internet for any tidbit of information that somehow seems to support their fantasy. Inevitability they become irrationally upset at Holland when he fails to trade rape the 29 other GMs in the league. Good times.

If the NHLPA acts on this I'm wondering if OEL would even go to the all star game if he was asked to. He might feel a bit awkward about the whole situation. He basically would be taking John Scott's slot that was taken away and is causing a good amount of drama.

So let me get this straight, John Scott gets this entire situation thrust on him and his first thoughts were to thank his teammates and think about what a cool experience it will be for his family?

What a dick. Definitely not the kind of "boy next door" role model the NHL has been pushing for years.

Was listening to the NHL channel on Sirius XM radio this morning while dropping the boys off at school.


Generally speaking - there's a 'need' for experienced Dmen...Apparently not too many were aware of Kindl being on waivers...


Too bad.  Either the Capitals or Panthers blew their chance to get that missing piece for their Cup run.

It's real simple:


ASG is a voting contest - fans voted Scott in - therefore he goes the NHL can stfu he deserves to go period.

#2648103 Congrats, Joel

I liked him more when he coached the Blues and was our b****

Yotes going for 5 in a row, lets stop someone else's streak for a change

Give the Coyotes a streak in their hockey shorts when they realize the Wings have a mad on and light them up for 6+ goals. :)

I will second the first career hat trick for Larkin, today is as good as any. Goose gets off his snake bitten streak, Zetterberg, Smith and Abdelkader. Multiple assists for Datsyuk, Green, and Zetterberg.

Mrazek plays like a stud between the pipes.

Let's Go Wings!

So I can't post links from my phone for some reason, but if you look up "Martin Fork Prospects Report" on YouTube you'll hear some interesting thoughts from Holland, Blashill, and Ryan Martin concerning Frk. For what they're worth you can look up George Malik's notes (I know) on Frk. He does an analysis of all the prospects at the development camp and main camp and has consistently noted Frks pensive approach to the game, but undeniable skill and work ethic.

Hope it helps.

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

Ahhhhh. Ok. I was way off. Thanks, amato.

#2647822 Pav hits 1000

Not sure if anybody else noticed but with Pavs second assist v LA he hit the 1000 pts plateau with regular and playoff games combined. This in 1067 games.

Yup, can't wait for the 2018 draft to go after Svechnikov's little brother, then 2020 to see him maybe make the Red Wings... Can't we just give the kid the 'C' now?...
