#2577323 Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by kipwinger on Yesterday, 11:05 AM

I truly 100% honestly positively believe Brendan Smith > Dion Phaneuf. I know I'm probably the only one but everytime I've seen Phaneuf play he has looked extremely bad defensivly

 

And Smith looks good?  Brendan Smith?  Sure you're not talking about Brad "Motor City Smitty" Smith?

Theres also no way smith is the only guy going to toronto. There has to be atleast one more piece

 

I think it's implied that he would be the center piece, not the only piece.

Im okay with that.

 

I'm not.  I think Smith is stupid and overrated.  But at least he's not stupid and overrated for the next 6 years at 7 million per. 




#2577295 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

More evidence that Holland has lost it.

 

Petry was just traded for a 2nd and a conditional 5th to the Habs.

The type of player they were hoping to get, a basic upgrade on Alexi

 

Holland gives up two, players that could have at least added depth or grown in trade value AND a second for a player 10 years older who is arguably as good as Cleary when you have decent depth to begin with... 

 

Not saying it was a damaging trade... it just is another example where another team is able to get more for less. 

 

Cole is arguably as good as Cleary? 

 

Lol. 

 

Zero credibility after saying that. 


"@Bill_Roose: Erik Cole will wear No. 72 in Detroit. He'll be first #RedWings player to don that number since Motor City Smitty (Brad Smith) in 1984-85."

 

Why O Why isn't Brendan Smith nicknamed "Motor City Smitty"?  I'd cut him some slack if this could catch on. 


According to THN, the Leafs want Smith for Phaneuf...any takers?

Aaaaaand I just followed that guy on Twitter.  He earned it.

Ha!! Is that even true?

 

I have no idea.  But it's actually funnier if it isn't true.  I choose to believe it's not true, and that some hilarious troll just wanted to get "...banged Phaneuf's wife" on TSN.

I'll be amazed if Dion Phaneuf gets traded to Detroit, summer or otherwise.  His contract is just MUCH too bad for a guy as mediocre as Dion is.

Yeah, I"m wondering if I'm watching the same Phaneuf.  The guy who's less offensively talented than Wisniewski, not much better defensively, and with a MUCH worse contract?  No thanks.  I don't want that hump unless they're giving him away.

I would laugh and laugh and laugh.

What would everyone think of Kindl+Jurco+1st for Phaneuf+7th?

 

Nope.  I don't want to go into the draft without a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd rounder.

I'd gladly take Kessel, too, if the Leas are feeling generous, haha.

 

Screw Kessel.  JVR please.

If Illitch really wanted Yzerman to replace Holland, you don't think he could have done this? Pretty sure a franchise that has helped Russians defect, could force a current GM to step aside. To me, Ilitch was trying to do some damage control when Yzerman left (for the sake of fans like you) by saying "I love Stevie, I did everything I could to get him to stay", when really he was probably thinking "I love Stevie, but Kenny's the best GM in the NHL, so I probably shouldn't force him to give up his job to a rookie GM"

Just my opinion, of course.

 

Not to mention, I'm not sure that giving former players important jobs within the organization is such a good thing.  Especially if they haven't proven themselves.  I don't care if Maltby is a scout, or Draper is an assistant.  But I would be very reluctant to make a former player the GM or Coach or President of the team just because it would be popular with the fans. 

 

Wanna know why?

 

These guys...

Sooooo, the Cole trade was a good one then?  Or bad?  I'm confused by this thread? 

 

Does Holland suck for the Cole thing or no?  I mean, I already know he sucks for not giving his job to a less qualified dude, just because said dude is a feel good story.  But does he suck for the trade?

SMITTY IS YANDLE/PRUST ALL IN ONE. I love him.

 

Reilly's brother was recently described by one of our peers as "a dynamic two way defenseman".  If Cole punched somebody, he'd be an "elite power forward" in no time.
