In Topic: Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

02 March 2015 - 01:13 PM

Pick becomes a 2nd if we reach the finals. 

 

I don't understand this year's deadline strategy.  Not at all.  I don't hate it, but I don't get it. 

 

What is there to get? We picked up 2 legit veteran players and gave up prospects who are clearly not even close to playing in the NHL. We gave up a couple of picks which we can afford to do considering our prospect pool is pretty damn deep.  It's all about what you can afford to give up and what you need.  We needed another right handed d man and got one. 


In Topic: Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Nothing wrong with this trade. Like someone else said, everyone thinks the Wings prospects are going to be elite.

 

Backman said f*** off to the wings and went back to Sweden. Wouldn't surprise me if they were shopping him the entire time. Janmark hasn't shown anything.

 

My only issue is what does this mean for Helm? Is he really hurt so they brought in Cole to play with Datsyuk and Tatar?

 

Really hope thats not the case, he has been so good this year.  The other wild card here is where does Franzen fit on this team if and when his head is right? Is there a spot? I really think Kindl is going to get moved and maybe Andersson to get us another 3rd/4th line winger.  Cole is versatile and can play on any of the first 3 lines.  Time will tell.

It's bad enough we lost backman
Bad enough we list backman i could of lived with that but Jesus Christ why did we have to throw in janmark? Erik cole isn't a top nhl star he's a good addition but a 36 yr old ufa to be we could of just gave backman and 2nd

Jim Nill is no moron that's all I gotta say ... Were gonna quite possibly really regret throwing in janmark

 

You aren't getting it,Backman wasn't good enough for Grand Rapids to even try and force him into the lineup. There are 3-4 guys ahead of him in GR, which doesn't include guys we may sign in the offseason or already have like DK, Smith.  He's probably 8-10th on the depth chart.  


We also got a 3rd rounder

 

Kenny did have his way, Bert is gone, Sammy is long gone and Cleary is about 14th on our depth chart.

I have a feeling Dion Phaneuf or Jeff Petry to follow. 

 

If we take on that Phaneuf contract without them retaining at least 2.5-3 milion of that salary I will puke.

Wow backman and janmark for a 36 yr old ufa as well as a 2nd


Kenny's off his rockers

 

So far down the depth chart they may not play in this system for years.  Got to give something to get something.  Got a 25 goal scorer for a couple of C grade prospects.
