#2494185 2014 draft thoughts.

If we make the playoffs (which gives our 2nd to the preds) and we go deep enough to make our 1st less valuable, I think we can almost guarantee Holly trades his 1st for 2nds

Marchenko is going to be real good for us.


Kill the time traveler!!!


#2493913 3/9 GDT: Red Wings at Rangers

Posted by number9 on 09 March 2014 - 03:01 PM

I missed the third due to my washer leaking water all over the floor. Seems like I didn't miss much other than a bad loss.


Franzen took the afternoon off, and Howard couldn't make a save with Quincey in front of him. Everyone else on the team had the best 3rd of their careers. Typical stuff.

I think we all agree the team needs a big time D-man. Especially a guy who can move the puck up the ice and put some points on the board.

Looking at SJ's contracts, I think they're going to have a real hard-time re-signing Boyle. He could be a good 1-year Alfredsson type stop gap player. Would take some pressure off Smith, Kindl, D, Lashoff, and the upcoming youngens for a year. Did I mention he's RH

Does anybody else think this is mostly due to other teams not wanting to trade with us?? Thats quite a drop off from other teams.

WE LIKE OUR TEAM

According to some people Poille looks as stupid as Garth Snow for letting go very good player Legwand for injury prone bottom liner Eaves,future bottom liner Jarnkrok and a pick :confused:


Legwand didn't want to re-sign with them


#2493066 Marty St. Louis wants out because The Captain hurt his feelings

Posted by number9 on 08 March 2014 - 01:14 AM

Gotta think this may be worse than we know. Stevie is the kinda guy who says Marty asked for a trade and I did best by him, when really Marty was a **** and Stevie got his best value. Please be the new Wings GM soon.

Eaves really is the man. Never disliked him. For his price tag he did his job very well.




#2493023 UFA/RFA Re-Signing, What Does Everyone Get?

Posted by number9 on 07 March 2014 - 11:31 PM

IMO this offseason is about re-signing the right contracts and adding a D-man. Wondering what everyone thinks about our expiring contracts and what they will get. I think Alfredsson (retirement) Bertuzzi (retirement) and Cleary (sucks) will be gone, but I listed them anyway in case they come back.

Player - CapHit - Age
Legwand (4.5) (33)
Alfredsson (3.5) (41)
Bertuzzi (2.075) (39)
Cleary (1.75) (35)
Sheahan (785) (22)
Tatar (630) (23)
Glendening (575) (24)
Quincey (3.775) (28)
DeKeyser (925) (24)
Gustavsson (1.5) (29)

Didn't list contracts that likely won't go up or down by much, aka the Almqvists of the world.

Posted by number9 on 07 March 2014 - 11:01 PM

Legwand has been the #1 C on a team thats biggest problem had always been forwards. I think his best line mate ever was that bum Radulov. Gotta think his numbers may increase now that he's got legit wingers.

Babs options at forward are endless now. In love.
Zetterberg will literally never be forced to play C again baring injuries, hoorayyyy!


#2491619 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by number9 on 06 March 2014 - 11:31 AM

Then Pulkkinen will surely never play...

Right...Axelsson sounded like a typical primadonna, lazy kid. Those guys jusy dont work out here.


I meant muscle strength wise, what he's always had a weakness at
Teemu's got a rifle for an arm


#2491543 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

I hope y'all can  get to like david legwand as much as the preds fans have for 15 seasons,Treat him well,after all he was our  first ever predator player.

 

 

Will be cheering for him as a red wing


I'm sure most will eventually appreciate having him. You've always been a very polite and down to earth hockey fan on an enemy forum and I appreciate that. I apologize for my fellow wings fan who don't feel the same as I. If Jarnkrok turns out like we in Detroit originally predicted then good for you (and I'll be sadddddd), otherwise thanks for Legwand, We'll treat him good!


True my best friend would eat a ton of crap when We were younger and he'd never put on any weight .... That being said I still think he could of produced in detroit and if he was surrounded by zetterberg and other swedes they could of helped him with workouts nutrition etc....


Jarnkrok just tweeted hes super excited to be with Nashville .... Doesn't like he's going to Sweden to me ... Holland just panicked and overplayed for legwand

 If he's the kind of guy that wants to go straight to the NHL then I'm sure he's happy to be in NSH. Detroit only wants players that are happy to be a part of a stellar team, not a fast-paced career.

Too many of you have assumed Jarnkrok is a future star. We don't know what Holland knows. He may never even grace, or be worthy of gracing, an NHL 4th line. But let's all call Holland an idiot.

Posted by number9 on 05 March 2014 - 11:29 PM

see this is you talking as a preds fan.... Sure send him (s***) to Detroit his best days are behind him. Idgaf that he waived his ntc, he's trash and shoulda stayed where he belongs cuz 100% he don't belong in a wing jersey... f*** Holland really blessed your team, why do u make it seem like this trade was even 60-40 fair???

Dude... have some class
