#2488120 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by kipwinger on 01 March 2014 - 12:06 AM

and Myers won the Calder .... Subban won the Norris but it was a shortened season so as nice as that was for him doesn't mean as much to me as someone who wins during a full seAson

And Subban was benched for team canada for a reason

 

Wow I feel like you're accidentally trying to make my points for me.  PK Subban was benched on a stacked Team Canada.  Tyler Myers didn't even get a try out for a less stacked Team USA.  Why do you keep trying to compare Subban to Myers?  Subban is clearly 2,000,000 times better than Myers.  They're not even close to comparable.

Not very good lmao ... I hope buffalo trades him now just so your jaw drops to the floor when you see the return buffalo would get for him

 

Yeah that'd sure show me.

The team as a whole sucks .... They have multiple players In The -20s and teens and I won't pretend to know the numbers but I'm guessing myers probably logs the most ice time ....Subban getting benched by thierren yesterday cause of his mistake was a big story all day In montreal , your telling me you wouldn't take Subban cause he's always making mistakes on defense?

Myers on the right team would bounce back

 

PK Subban is a Norris Trophy winner.  Tyler Myers is a chronic underachiever whose team is desperately trying to get rid of him.  If you think that comparison is valid I don't know what to tell you.

All valid points, but sometimes a change of scenery will do wonders for a player. Tough to get excited playing for the Sabres night in and night out. Plus with his contract maybe just maybe we wouldn't have to over pay.

 

We probably wouldn't have to overpay...because he's not very good and he's signed to a prohibitive contract.  There's a reason you'd get him cheap...he's not worth the money.  Just because you CAN get a guy doesn't mean you should.  We're right in the thick of a playoff race and we're seriously talking about trading for a guy who makes more money and plays worse than the guy we're talking about moving out...all because a change of scenery MIGHT do him good?  No thanks.  Trade for Gilbert, or MacDonald, or Erhoff.  At least they've got a track record of success.  Or don't trade for anyone.  All of those options are better than trading for a guy who's not very good in hopes that years from now he'll improve. 

 

If Holland traded Quincey for Myers and we missed the playoffs...particularly if Myers continued with his piss poor defensive play...everyone here would be ready to burn them both at the stake.

Totally disagree with you .... Buffalo sabres as a team sucks .

 

I don't understand your point?  Myers can't be bad because the team's bad?  He's a defensive defenseman who gets lost in coverage.  Who's fault is that if not his?

Textbook case of the grass is always greener.  Tyler Myers is infuriatingly bad at defense.  He's like Jack Johnson without the offense or the coordination.  He's not better than Quincey right now, and he probably doesn't project to be better than Smith in the long run. 

 

Buffalo would love to get rid of him had their s***ty former GM not given him the moon after one good year.  If you guys think Quincey, Smith, Kindl are mistake prone you will lose your minds watching this guy.  He's not a defensive upgrade in any manner.  Don't believe the hype.

Haa zubov is the man (friends friend) but 100 myers inconsistencies are brutal gotta remember he's playing on sabres who I seen use John Scott on D lol

 

I think Scott actually started his NHL career as a defenseman but I don't remember.  Either way he's terrible, so I get your point.

Yes Ive been saying that kip, you hit it on the head I think myers has a tiny bit more upside than quincy cuz of size...

 

For sure he's got more upside.  But so far, he's never played up to his potential.  He gets by on his size and draft position, but he's really not very consistent at this point.  His boneheaded miscues make Smith look like Sergei Zubov.

I don't think myers is solid D maybe top 4 but he certainly isn't shut down
Maybe with some proper coaching

 

Neither Edler nor Myers are as good as they're sometimes portrayed on this site.  Myers may not even be better than Quincey.  Edler is.  But not nearly as good as his asking price is going to be.  It's all unearned reputation that this point.  I'd rather have MacDonald than Edler.  He's as good and will cost less.




#2487903 Why did Franzen get 10 min game misconduct?

Posted by kipwinger on 28 February 2014 - 05:10 PM

Just read this article about the incident.  If it's not blatantly obvious that Neil is a stupid piece of trash by about the second sentence then I don't know what to tell you.  Whenever anybody tells me fighting is about "protecting your guys" I'm going to point to this.  Just a stupid ape wanting to fight because he wants to fight...against a goal scoring Euro...in a game that completely out of reach...based on an interaction he started...for no reason.  Idiot.

#2487890 2/27 GDT : Red Wings 6 at Senators 1, Franzen w/Hat Trick

Posted by kipwinger on 28 February 2014 - 04:49 PM

You are right to some extent -the league has handcuffed enforcers but saying there is no stopping a guy like Neil is incorrect. Neil cannot rough up someone from the penalty box after fighting our heavyweight. There is also the notion that anything he tries to do to us can be done to them. I do think Neil's team mates would be slightly less enthusiastic about his work if they realize that it will put a target on their backs. Heavyweights are still part of this league and for a reason. Holland is about the only GM that refuses to admit this and his team is paying for it. The fans too, if it means the coach is afraid to put Datsyuk out on the ice at times.

 

When is the coach afraid to put Datsyuk on the ice?  He plays all the time...when he's not nursing an injury.  Also, how is the team "paying for" not having an enforcer?

Indeed, Kesler was definitely "that guy." Growing up he basically hated the Wings.

 

People said the same thing about Wisniewski.  Right now I'd kill for either of "those guys". 

 

 

Edit:  Just thought of something.  Obviously the lines would skake out differently, but just imagine how awesome a line of Tatar-Kesler-Jurco would be?  Since in an ideal world Kesler is the EXACT type of center we hope Sheahan will be.

Lebrun is just throwing out names, hoping something will stick.

 

Obviously they're all speculating.  That's the nature of the rumor game.  But there are those rumor mongers who are informed and generally more credible (LeBrun, McKenzie, Deger) and those that aren't (Richardson, Eklund, Garrioch). 

 

I agree that it's incredibly unlikely that Kesler becomes a Wing, and probably unlikely that he's moved at all.  But Lebrun is not really known for just pulling sh*t out of his ass as you're suggesting.

Doing play by play and color commentating is far more difficult than it seems. 

 

Which is why they should have kept Murphy around.  He was really coming into his own.  He was like the lovable goofball that you couldn't help but laugh at.  My two favorite Murphy moments...

 

1) Doing a pre-game spot on dollar hotdog night from the hotdog stand.  When they delivered his order he had SEVEN hotdogs.

 

2)  A couple of years ago when we played Nashville in the playoffs and Murph did his pregame spot while onstage in a Nashville music hall with full backup band.  Every time he made an important point the drummer crashed on the cymbals and Murph would pump his hammy fist in the air.

LeBrun thinks that the Wings are in on Kesler. He is on TSN 1050 right now talking about the trade deadline. 

 

Wings are looking to add, but not rental players. Wants players that would be here beyond this season. 

 

Dude I really don't want to get my hopes up...but I would lose my s*** if the Wings landed Kesler and even a lower level puck mover (e.g. Gilbert)
