#2576825 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by number9 on 01 March 2015 - 08:09 PM

Abby + Franzen = Cole.

 

I think our top 6 just got way more dangerous and less one-dimensional.

 

Tatar - Datsyuk - Cole

Nyquist - Zetters - Abby

 

If Franzan can come back we'll be lookin even betta

So do some of you guys even want to win or what? Kenny gave up 2 prospects who likely were never going to see time in the winged wheel. Cole is 36, have you seen him play? He's not Bertuzzi. He can still skate as well as he ever did, and plays a physical power game.

Finally Pav has someone to play with. I just mentioned today that I would love to get Cole, and it happens! Now I want to win the lottery,make it happen Kenny!

With backman retreating back I could live with that ... Janmark has upside for 2 yrs and now it's like whatever let's just give him away for an old ufa cause we still have good prospects

Rather of traded him if we had to in a deal that would be more than a ufa

In 2 yrs if we get outed again 1st round we lost 2 2nds janmark backman jarnkrok for 2 guys who quite possibly don't return and a 3rd rounder

And I just noticed we gave away 3 swedish guys ...are we suddenly giving up on the swedes? Lol

I like this trade, always been a Cole fan. Has great speed, and is gonna have 20 goals by the end of the year. The wings got even more depth scoring, by the end of the year depending on Zetterberg's health we could have 5 20 goal scorers.

Some people are impossible to please, you think each and every prospect is going to be future top-6, wrong. We just got bigger, try and appreciate that. 




#2574910 Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

Posted by Yzerfan87 on 25 February 2015 - 10:18 PM

That's the thing.
He's not a playoff disaster...
He just doesn't steal you games on the playoffs.
He's far above Corey Crawford.


I've been waiting for someone to mention Crawford. In every way, Howard is better. But Crawford has a cup. Chicago won twice by scoring and good defense, and I don't think we're far off from their cup winning teams.

Same here. But even if they shopped him, his salary is pretty high for a team to take on knowing he's a playoff disaster.
 
Changes of scenery can work wonders though...

this thread sounds entirely too familiar. Apparently a goalie isn't allowed to have a couple bad games after missing over a month of hockey. Trade Jimmy for a 7th rounder and bring up that ahl goalie that lets in 4+ goals every game and roll with that

Yes.  He is. 




#2573700 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by kipwinger on 23 February 2015 - 09:53 AM

 People get offended over anything in todays ultra 'pc' society we live in.

 

That said - wonder Rielly will be on the trading block.

 

I don't think anybody's calling for Reilly's head.  It's pretty much universally acknowledged that he's a young kid who made a mistake and said something stupid that you shouldn't say anymore.  I thought, however, that it was also universally acknowledged that you shouldn't use large groups of people (women, homosexuals, black people, Irish, etc.) as a pejorative.  And that when you do, people will be offended.  Not "easily" offended, mind you.  But justifiably offended. 

 

I mean, that's reasonable right?  To expect that your gender, skin color, religious preferences, etc. won't be consistently used as an insult by people in public.

I'm not sure there really needs to be a debate about it.  You shouldn't belittle people, ever, if you can help it.  I'm sure Morgan Reilly isn't a total dick.  He just said a total dick thing.  

 

Secondly, we (as a part of the hockey community) absolutely SHOULD do our best to enforce social, cultural, and behavioral norms.  It's called civic responsibility.  I want my children, friends, family, and neighbors to be able to share in the sport I love...because I love it.  And none of them, ever, should feel excluded because of who they are or what they choose to do. 

 

However, I can't say that I'm surprised that Frank feels the way he does.  This is a guy who once said that people who don't like fighting in hockey are "homosexuals".  And regularly references "sissy hockey". 

 

Fortunately people like Frank here are in the minority.  Positivity, inclusion, and openness are winning.  And people like him are losing.  And one of these days everybody with that point of view will either be forced to come around, or else be exposed for the narrow minded, hateful, ethically bankrupt dinosaurs that they are.

Biggest joke of this whole thing is that Rielly actually had to apologize for it...Don't like what he has to say don't read it and move on.
 
Man the media in Toronto really has to make a story out of everything


What if he said "Red wings fans are poop"? Am I just supposed to not read it and move on simply bc I don't like it?

Two points courtesy of Jimmy Howard. Telling the haters to piss off.


#2571833 Do we need to add grit?

Posted by kipwinger on 18 February 2015 - 07:40 PM

I'm against anything that makes us slower.  Speed is our friend.  Guys like Grossman and Neil are only going to slow us down.  All things being equal, I'll take a tougher guy over a weaker one.  But all things have to be equal (or close to equal).
