#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

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??


#2575621 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by toby91_ca on 27 February 2015 - 01:59 PM

I'm not sure how anyone could even consider giving Benn supplemental discipline for that.  If I were the ref and watching the whole play, I'd give them both two minutes, Z for holding or interference and Benn for roughing.  Normally in these incidents though, it either goes totally unnoticed (no one gets called) or they call the roughing as they are following the puck off the draw and aren't paying attention to the interference.

 

This was in no way a sucker punch in my book.  Z was tying him up, he made a forearm push to get free, which didn't work and then punched him in the head.  A sucker punch would be when a player is just standing there and a guy punches him for no reason.  Z was tying him up and Benn was trying to get away.  That same play probably happens, on average, 5-10 times in every game....it just happened to have a bad outcome here.

I believe everything evens out in the end.
The refs miss some for us, and some against us, same goes for every other team.
The only difference is were paying closer attention to the ones missed on is because those are our guys.

I'm sure there's a Franzen thread to discuss this in.

 

Franzen thread?  As in one?  Probably a few more than that.

 

Regardless, I didn't think what Benn did was a big deal, the same type of thing happened all the time in the rec leagues I played in.  It just happened to have a worse than normal result.




#2575613 Sounds like the New York "Islanders" are no more...

Only replace this fisherman guy with the Brooklyn Brawler

That would be the new logo.

We don't have legitimate gripes about the officiating.  That's the problem.  We're consistently one of the LEAST PENALIZED teams in the league.  AND we're consistently GIVEN THE MOST POWERPLAYS. 

 

Very few, if any, teams go to the box less, or go on the man advantage more.  Them's the facts.  I'd give the theory some credence if we never got a powerplay, or if we were always in the box.  But neither of those things are true. 

 

But for whatever reason our fans have internalized this belief that everybody is out to get them.  Bettman hates us.  The refs are throwing games.  The media doesn't recognize our star players. 

 

It's all bologna.  SUPER, duper, annoying bologna. 

 

We got screwed in the 2009 Finals so we deserve reparations from the NHL.    :baaa:

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'm not a doctor, but I do know that a broken collar bone that requires surgery will most likely see the full 3 months needed to heal properly (keep in mind - a 'clean' non-displaced clavicle fracture would require the patient to wear a brace to immobilize the shoulder to allow the bone to heal, and that usually takes 6 weeks).
 
In other words - unless the Hawks have a deep playoff run - Kane will be out until the Conference Finals.


Alright yeah. Maybe I was a little off on the time but, even without Kane, I wouldn't be surprised if they're in the conference final.. at which point their roster could be impossibly stacked with the addition of another player or two.

Just thought it was an interesting storyline leading up to playoffs..

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,

 

Petry lover

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

That's not how economics work. Demand creates higher prices. The prices are higher because there are a lot of buyers. We don't hear about everyone who inquires about these players. Also, teams are paying these prices so it sets a precendent for the next deal.

 

Edit: my grammer sucked. I english do good.
