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.

Posted by amato on 26 February 2015 - 02:55 PM

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..

When this thread was created I didn't think it could get more ridiculous than it was to begin with.... Boy, was I wrong :P

Abby getting away with one.. yet another argument for coaches challenges


#2572595 Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by amato on 20 February 2015 - 09:58 AM

I think Stuart would be my threshold as well. So its been what 7-8 years since a trade deadline mattered? Kenny is setting himself up for another we like our team
moment. Sometimes that's good I guess but most of his moves are insignificant and I have zero faith he'll pull the trigger on an upgrade to help this team this year either.


But usually when he doesn't it's because there isn't a deal to be made that makes sense. Trades are a two way road and most teams want top prospects for good players. If you're going to give up a top prospect, you need to make sure it's worth it long term, which is a bit of a gamble. If we would have made a big trade in the past few seasons, nyq or Tatar would've probably had to have been traded, and now look at them. Personally, I trust Holland's judgement.

I am hoping he can swing something for Wisniewski though. But I'm not getting my hopes up too high..
