#2306351 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Posted by amato on 10 June 2012 - 03:17 PM

Stuart leaving is a bigger loss than most realize. He takes a lot of crap around here from some who fail to see just how good he was overall for four years here. Sure, he wasn't perfect, but there aren't many who come even close to great, let alone very good, and Stuart was without a doubt very, very, very good and a very important part of the Wings defensive puzzle over the last four years. Losing him and Nick in one fell swoop is rough.

If Holland can't make some big things happen, we're likely to have a rough season ahead of us. Thankfully, for once, I think Holland knows he has to be more pro-active and aggressive than he's had to be at any point in his career. If ever there was a sink or swim time for the Wings management, it's now.

Also, not expecting this pick to hang around for long. Whenever Holland trades for the rights of one of his big targets, this will be in the package no doubt.


Agreed. I always thought Stuart was a great d man. I think moving his rights was Hollands first step in being more pro-active this off season. Glad we got something for him rather than nothing.. Can't wait to see what else happens this off season.

Oshie or downie would be awesome.. Sadly I doubt either team gets rid of them. I never wanna see Doan and tootoo in a wings jersey.. Ever.

Edit: lots of other good names on the list too. Maybe we could trade Stuart's negotiating rights for one of the RFAs rights..?

#2300993 Patrick Kane at it again

Posted by amato on 13 May 2012 - 01:02 PM

I don't think the issue is with him drinking, all NHL players drink. The issue is him getting black out drunk in settings like that. If you are the front office of an organization, those are not the situations you want your players to be.


It's stuff like this that's the issue...

"Kane got kicked out of the Kappa Sig party I was at for trying to choke a girl."

#2264241 Trade Deadline Approaches

Posted by amato on 27 February 2012 - 06:06 PM

Another year of hopes and expectations fizzled away. Why wouldn't we just wait til the offseason to make that Commodore deal and keep him for insurance through the playoffs? It kind of seems unnecessary to get that 7th pick today opposed to the end of the year.


It was a respect move on Hollands part. Commie just wanted to play and he didn't really have a chance to here.. Plus they wanted smith to get some playing time in before playoffs. Agreed, commie would've been great insurance. I actually liked when he played and it's a little disappointing seeing him go but I'm glad also because he'll actually get playing time down in Tampa.


#2264238 trade idea for the summer

Posted by amato on 27 February 2012 - 06:00 PM

Yzerman will be our gm soon enough.. Whenever Hollands done, he's our guy.

2 options :

1. Continue to ***** about what we did or didnt do and cry like babies or..

2. Buckle up, be a good fan and support the squad we have and watch this team make another run at it !


Exactly. Everyone quit your bitching.. We have a great chance at the cup for sure. And Quincey was a lot better of a pick up than people are giving holland credit for.. He'll fit in perfectly here.
