#2649632 2016 Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by dmbongreyst on 23 January 2016 - 12:34 PM

I think it would be tough to get rid of Howard and have a legitimate backup mid season. I'm all for turning the keys over to Mrazek but I don't want to minimize the return on Howard by having another goalie included on the deal. Despite the many frustrations I've had with Jimmy over the years I still believe he's an above average goalie that could net a good return.

No, I don't think they're playing well. But firing a coach 10 games into his NHL career seems rash. Back to the point I was making, he hasn't had one of the best players on the team and several key players have already missed time due to injury.

It wouldn't be fair to fire a guy before he's given a chance to prove himself with the full roster.

While we're at it, waive Pavel. The guy hasn't even scored a goal yet. So much for a playmaker.

The Hockey News had that goal on their front page tonight. An amazing goal.

Funny thing with THN is they don't even have him in the Wings top ten prospects. Not a very good list, at least with their order, if you ask me.

2020? Are we really 6 years away from seeing a contender? They may not win the SC before then, but I surely hope they contend before then.

You have to remember that we are still in a lockout shortened and affected season. In a normal year, the Finals would have ended three weeks ago.
