#2575732 Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by number9 on 27 February 2015 - 10:54 PM

Former first round pick, gets to the front of the net. Fights and hits. Great on Face offs. Look at Tampa with Boyle or Montreal with Weise. You need a guy like that, might as well get one who can score too.

 

Sheppard is tied for 145the among centers (not including wingers who take FO's) in FO%. That's not good.

 

He's 102 in the league in hits. He's behind Helm, Abdelkader, and Glendening.

 

He only has 2 fights this season, so I have no idea why you think he's a "fighter"

 

Please tell me he's a family friend or something.

 

PS he can't score either. Unless you consider Glendening a scorer lol

#2575713 Red Wings Road Fans Appreciation

Posted by number9 on 27 February 2015 - 08:18 PM

I feel like a lot of people have left Michigan for greener pastures (including myself). Hence why there are a lot of transplanted Wings fans, especially south/west where the economy is doing better.

I truly believe this will happen if Carolina is willing to eat that much of his salary.  Washington already knows the he can score on Backstom's wing.  And I'm sure his moodiness will be a little easier to swallow if you're only paying him 3.5 million.  I think it's a done deal.  Mark it. 


Was it you who wanted Semin on this team for a while??

#2575596 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by number9 on 27 February 2015 - 12:23 PM

As much as I don't like him when he floats around and takes nights off, he may have a very real, and serious, concussion issue. At this point, his future quality of life could be a greater concern than his hockey career.

 

What a pansy

I don't think we should trade for him, I was talking about speculation and my opinion on it.
I don't think he's an upgrade over anything but I can't pretend to know what the drw brass would do.
So I was just speaking as to what questions I had, which didn't mention what I would do either way.
I said my hesitations and was hoping for other opinions on who they'd rather five up, if they had to,

I think it has more to do with Petry being another expendable D-man. Who would we all like to trade for someone better if we could? Kindl and Quincey. Well if we already had Petry we'd all be saying Kindl, Quincey, or Petry. He's in the same boat as those two. It's not going to put us over the top adding him. I think Holland is correct in saying we need a big impact player, or none at all.

What makes you think that Petry is worth giving up Marchenko or any of the other top 3 or 4 D prospects in the system to get?  Seriously, can someone tell me what they see in Petry that they think he'd be an upgrade over anyone other than Kindl or maybe whichever rookie would be in the lineup, and/or can help long term?

 

Petry is a shiny new toy. Fans love trades for the sake of trades. And the fact that Petry is from Michigan hypes everyone, and idiots like Friedman play off of that.

 

In a logical world Marchenko is the better option. But most people aren't logical, and just want a trade because it's something to talk about. Fortunately Holland possesses logic.

Ok then I'll said differently with each passing day the prices of players will go up if the teams who are missing out now are still searching for help. In other words guys like Petry are climbing the ladder and I still doubt we'll see anything major. I mean what's left X-Cross, Petry and (and maybe) Polak and Lupul non of these guys is high profile..

 

Not necessarily. Every time a team makes their deadline move, that's one more buyer off the market. Teams looking to get something for players on expiring contracts (like Petry) may end up desperate to trade them towards the end of the deadline when there are less takers. Teams may come to find that no one wants player X because other teams already got player Y from someone else, and no one else is buying. Economics goes both ways.

 

But let's pretend that your notion that prices go up after players are traded is true. So what? How would that make this deadline any different than any other deadline that's ever occurred? And furthermore, why then do buying GM's typically hold out and wait till the final day(s) before the deadline? It would seem to reason that everyone would be trying to get their trade done weeks before the deadline.

I don't think there are enough buyers otherwise the demand would be greater and we'd hear a bit more about some "higher" rated players. Like it or not but with each passing defenseman trade the value of guys like Petry, Yandle (although that would skyrocket) will increase - so I think it's safe to call it a sellers market. A gbuyers market would mean that there are more offerings than demand and that's hardly the case.

 

What a stupid move by Florida why give up a second rounder for Jagr ? He isn't what he has been a year ago and there is no way he is going to re-sign with Florida. I really thought Jagr would have some sort of ntc clause.

 

You just 100% contradicted yourself in one post lol

 

There is not enough demand so it's a sellers market? But a buyers market is when there is not enough demand? What? lol

 

Sellers market = lots of demand/buyers, very little supply, prices soar

Buyers market = little demand/buyers, lots of supply, prices shrink

 

Economics 101


 

It's a sellers market there aren't enough buyers so the prices are going up, but yeah if the price for Petry is a 2nd and a good prospect I'd say it's not worth it. Wings can sign him for free in the summer so

 

Not how that works

Glad this ones a late start. Going to a section final game for high school. Probably miss couple minutes of this only.


The west coast trips always mean late nights and rough mornings for me. I fell asleep halfway through the 2nd of the LA. When I saw the score the next morning I went from mad I missed it to instantly happy I got more sleep.
