#2510125 Would You Trade For Matt Greene's Rights?

Posted by kipwinger on 16 April 2014 - 10:32 PM

you all seem to forget that the rest of the GMs like to rape Holland, so no, I don't feel like giving up Mantha for Greene...and you know that's what they will all be asking in return. Greene would look good here, but the asking price for a bag of pucks will be at least Jurco, and uncle Gary allows this ass raping to go on...

There's no way that you can believe that anybody would realistically use Anthony Mantha as a starting piece for Matt Greene.  Furthermore, that's only the second craziest thing in your post.  The first is your insinuation both that Gary Bettman somehow has something to do with the prices other GMs ask from Ken Holland on the trade market and that he ought to be doing something about it rather than "allowing this ass raping to go on".

His arrest report lists his occupation as "Forward" instead of Professional Hockey Player. Jailer must be a hockey fan. :)

Speaking of cool moves...



#2504234 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 31 March 2014 - 07:44 PM

The problem is that Järnkrok is a very offensive minded center, he'd have to be given a decent amount of ice time and with good players or he won't be effective. He's certainly not the type of defensively responsible centre that Babcock loves and also he's tiny, we need size.
He's also not a great PKer like Sheahan and Glendening.

From what I've ready everyone's always said how good a 2 way player he is and is defensively responsible... Might also be a reason he's up in Nashville and forsberg is still in milwaukee

ummm did you read the edit to my post where I provided the article where he admits himself that he was close to moving back home?

I can't read swedish so I'll have to take your word for it ... But I know he went on twitter and said all the rumors were false

Why won't this thread just die already

Embrace the thread lol ... Help it reach 100 pages

#2504128 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by wings87 on 31 March 2014 - 11:50 AM

I swear if Bertuzzi or Cleary come back I'm gonna lose my mind. I'll be ok with Q and Leggy back on decent contracts. Kindl should get a compliance buyout. Tootoo regular buyout unless management are fine with the cap hit for one more year.

I nominate Bert to be the team greeter next year, like they have at Wal-Mart.

Not sure if people know but Tyler Bertuzzi is back from his serious injury earlier this season and is now leading his team in the playoffs.


3 goals and 1 assist in 3 playoff games so far.  I know quite a few (looking at you Richdg) who completely counted this kid out and wrote him off for nothing.


Glad to see he's back and seeing success.

I hope Jarnkrok becomes a nobody for the simple fact that I don't want to read about this trade for the next 18 years of his career.

#2504114 Ovechkin and ES

Posted by wingedominance13 on 31 March 2014 - 10:52 AM

My problem with Ovi is he has the god given ability to be a dominant hockey player everywhere on the ice. He has the size, the speed, the agility, the strength, the hands, and the shot. But all you ever see him do it wait at the blue line, go to the slot, and rip it. and occasionally throw a check. 

#2503558 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 30 March 2014 - 04:15 PM

He's gone now so all we can do is accept the trade and or vent about it .... I'm pissed but I accept that it's done ... I just want jarnkrok to continue and dominate so we think hard next time about giving up a top prospect in our system

We all have our own opinions and that's mine and it won't change

You keep saying this, but when was the last time the wings gave up a top prospect? Shawn Mattias for Bertuzzi? That was 7 years ago and the wings now keep picks and prospects. I honestly don't know how I feel about the trade - possible present gain for possible future sacrifice. But to claim that the Wings need to be taught a lesson about giving up prospects seems incongruous with management's recent history.

#2501741 Weiss - who would take him next season and does he have a full NTC

Posted by Dave on 27 March 2014 - 12:38 PM

Hmmmm, never really gave the thought of Weiss playing wing...that could work out wonderfully.  BOTH Jurco and Glendening have exemptions remaining to cover next season, so much like Nyke this season, they can start the year in GR without the chance of losing them, thus opening up two roster spots up front...lets look at this:


I hate Franzen anyway, and I especially hate him on the top line.  Nyke should be there and that is where I am starting him.


Nyke - Dats - Z

Weiss - Leggy - Alfie

Fish - Tinky - Abby

Franzine - Barbie - Miller

(Andy - Ferraro - Dirty Harry)


Kronner - Big E

Smitty - UFA (Morris)

Diesel - UFA (Mitchell)



Ugh (Howard)



That's 24 players with Glenny and Jurx stating GR.  Trading Kindl (no so) Fire and Almost Almqvist for a couple of picks.  If you feel the pinch of a lower cap, then Andy can be packaged as well, or maybe sign bit cheaper D-man instead of one of Mitchell or Morris. Unless you'd want to roll the dice on Marchenko and only sign Morris.


I know this is a Weiss thread, and I really didn't mean to respond with a roster of possible next season ufa's, but the idea of Weiss playing wing lead me to where I may be able to put others...sorry.


Those are the worst, most forced nicknames I've ever seen. Seriously....please just type their names out.

#2501708 Weiss - who would take him next season and does he have a full NTC

Posted by amato on 27 March 2014 - 07:54 AM

Weiss can play wing. No reason it has to be either Legwand or Weiss.


is a heck of a top 6.

Then, Tatar-Sheahan-Nyquist as the 2b line.


yes please. :D 


that would likely leave jurco at the first "injury call up" position.

I'd really like to see him start the season in detroit but that top nine would be incredible.

so stoked on how much sheahan (& everyone else) has broken out this year


Also, some people just don't understand the cap era, and won't be happy unless we can ice a roster of future hall of famers. 



and tears form remembering 2002 team with that lineup.....d*mn you cap d*mn you



I'm convinced that team caused the salary cap era to begin :P
