#2577859 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on Today, 12:50 AM

People saying Zidlicky is small and can't play defense, he can play defense. But that's not really why he is here. He is here because he can make the first pass out of the defensive zone, knows how to quarterback a powerplay, and has a right-handed shot. Not all of our defensemen need to be shut down defensmen. Sure it's great to get a guy that can do both but those guys aren't available without giving up the farm.

Not only does Toronto have to pick up at least $2.5 mil of Phaneuf's salary, we get Sarnia too.
 
Final offer.


And they have to take Flint in the trade.

Phaneuf next?


I've been saying we were one power forward and one top D-man away from being a serious contender so if Kenny can somehow work magic and not give up a lot then our team becomes a favorite over night in my eyes.


#2576852 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 01 March 2015 - 08:17 PM

Here comes all the complainers of the trade. The same people who complain when Holland does nothing. We gave up 2 deeper prospects and a pick for a power forward and a pick. Sure the players we trade could come back to bite us but odds are they won't amount to anything rather than being superstars one day. We got a 18 goal scorer who will be killer in front of the net on the power play and what many were saying was the 2nd best forward available at the deadline. Great work Kenny!

That's all we gave up for Cole? DID Holland just make a steal?!!


#2576363 Once again blowing a lead and giving up 3 goals

This isnt the extremely veteran teams of old. With the infusion of young talent you have to roll with mental lapses from time to time.


#2534218 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Four more years of no Stanley Cup! Whoo hoo!


#2533553 Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

I hope these contracts aren't slowly moving us toward another lockout.....


#2533177 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 28 July 2014 - 02:05 PM

In 3 years we will say this signing is a steal. Look at all the people that complained about the Kronwall signing at first. The cap will continue to go up and he will be a bargain scoring 20-30 goals a season.


#2533138 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

The term is perfect for both sides. Both sides will get to see what they have in 3 years.

Comments like these make me want to cancel my subscription to LGWs.
 
Holland is now all of a sudden a bad GM because he didn't sign David friggin Booth?
 
Please.


No that is not what I am saying. It's because he makes promises to washed up players like cleary and signs Quincey for over four mill per he could have signed another comparable left handed defensemen about 1.5 mill per. He tends to get bent over the barrel more than most GM's in the NHL. He is overly cautious and then when he realizes he has come up empty handed he makes a quick fix trade or signing that doesn't really help the team.


#2532899 Bring in Loiselle or Poulin as assistant GMs?

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 23 July 2014 - 06:09 PM

Can Dombroski just be brought in to be GM of the Wings and Tigers?


#2532741 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

"The Dan Cleary Center" sounds pretty good.


Do we really need to keep rehashing the same joke over and over again?
