#2557373 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by Dabura on 16 December 2014 - 11:10 PM

Oilers are actually considering dealing taylor hall ...


That's according to Darrren Dreger, who's basically a glorified troll.

Right. I knew there was something I didn't get. Thanks for pointing that out.
I'll defer to your wisdom. Mike Green would be an excellent #2 Dman.

According to some Kronwall can't handle #1 spot either

any interest in Wisniewski?  I know he has a modified NTC and would probably have to submit a list of teams or something, but instead of blowing the wad on a #2 guy, maybe spend a bit less on a better #3?
Don't know, I am just looking at the bottom dwellers and seeing who may be looking to make a deal...speaking of bottom dwelling, WTF happened to Colorado?

Highly doubt we show any interests after his comments about Detroit's management.

Rumor has it that Yandle and Boedker can be had.  The asking price for Yandle is rumored to be a top line guy, prospect, and second round pick.  We've got a top line forward on our third line.  No rumored asking price on Boedker.  So...


Franzen, Helm, Kindl (or Andersson), Pulkkinen, 2nd




Yandle and Boedker



Which would give us





Miller-Glendening-Andersson (or Callahan if Andersson went the other way)




Yandle and Boedker are super overrated. Yandle is Rafalski without the benefit of the RH shot, and Rafalski was not exactly always loved around here. And Boedker is suddenly being super overrated around the league just cause he's available and fans wanna see moves made IMO. He's not at all good defensively, like a bigger Hudler.


I think the deal makes us better in the O-zone but hurts us slightly in the D-zone, even with the addition of Yandle. We don't gain much physicality in the deal either. It's like trading softies for softies, but we give up a bit of our future too. I say no.

Yandle is a premier defensemen and much better then Kronwall. We'd be adding a defensemen you can build an offense around

Yandle is not better than Kronwall. He puts up a few more points but Kronwall's defense is better by quite a bit.

#2556363 Rank our griffins d prospects

I was really high on him because he's swedish and I can't help but pay attention to every swede we have but I don't know anymore about backman but I hope your right

If he can fill out and add a good amount of muscle, which I think he will, he'll be solid. Whether it's for us or not, I do believe he has a future in the NHL.

I'm worried about marchenko though , with him being young and Russian always a chance he bails to the khl

I was really high on him because he's swedish and I can't help but pay attention to every swede we have but I don't know anymore about backman but I hope your right


How often does this actually happen? In reality? Not that much. We've seen a couple major russian stars bolt bc of money thrown at them, but that kind of thing doesn't happen with guys like Gonchar or Tyutin. So unless Marchenko proves he is the next Fetisov tomorrow, I don't see any real reason to be worried about this at the moment. When he starts dominating the NHL and makes a major name for himself I'll start to slightly worry. Emphasis on slightly. After all Datsyuk and the Red Wings have been loyal to each other for years. Red Wings have always done a pretty good job of treating their stars right and keeping them here. Doubt that changes tomorrow. And I'm not surprised Russians bolted from the jokes that are NJ and Nashville. I'd bolt from their too if I was Russian.

It's funny that this thread is still a thing.

Always room for improvement.

Me too but they will be wanting something valuable on the D side that we just don't have. ROR is too proven to be returning picks and prospects and what we have on D we can't afford to trade. The Coyotes would be perfect trade partners for Colorado. 

I just think more forwards is the last thing we need

#2554070 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 December 2014 - 11:38 AM

Seriously they don't deserve McDavid such a clueless and full of their past glorydays management doesn't deserve that kind of talent (the fans do obviously). But after all the struggles and BS Buffalo had to go through pre Pegula I would be very happy seeing them getting the next generational talent. At least their management is competent and doesn't put all the blame on some ~ 20 year old players ...

Now it's Taylor Hall and Eberle's responsibility to demand more accountability from the team.

Wow what a gongshow, if I were an Oilers fan I would be pissed tremendously, a presser just to say and do nothing ? thats af****** job how do these guys still have a job in the NHL (best league in the world by far).

#2553123 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by number9 on 01 December 2014 - 08:38 PM

XO should be a full timer soon IMO, and I'm usually the one to say prospects need more time.


Pulks needs a call up.

#2553068 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by e_prime on 01 December 2014 - 08:34 AM

Said it before, saying it again... we still need to make a move so that we can consistently rotate in a prospect on D.  XO having to go back down because Smith is back and healthy, and there's no room on the roster, is an issue.


Lash, Kindl, or KFQ need to get moved for this reason alone.

Preferably Kindl. Then, KFQ.

Especially if we make a trade and upgrade a D-man, preferably RH, I'm fine with that too.

#2552824 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by marcaractac on 30 November 2014 - 03:32 PM

Unless we moved Ericsson I wouldn't wanna acquire a defenseman that has more that one year(next year) left on his deal. Cause once quinceys deal is up we have

Kronwall Ericsson
Smith dekeyser
Oullete and sproul

So unless Ericsson is moved the only way I want then to acquire a defenseman is if it's short term with nex year being the final year. So a guy like mike green could be perfect just don't overpay.
Also for the record. I have no issue with holland standing pant and holding into the prospects. But they should be playing now over guys like
Kindl, Quincey, cleary, Anderson, miller etc etc

I just have an issue with him doing the middle I the road path. If were rebuilding why give kindl a spot over oullete? A guy who deserve it and can use the experience now.

If were rebuilding why gives Quincey a two year deal? He has been fine no doubt about it but he isn't apart of the future when oullete and sproul are.


Because a part of rebuilding is learning how to win. You don't do that by throwing all the kids in the lineup at once. That's hoe you get the Edmonton Oilers. 


And why would Holland put kids in over two players sitting in the press box every night? They get playing time in GR. Cleary and Andersson are doing great at keeping the press box warm. 


I definitely agree with having XO in the lineup. And that time will come sooner rather than later. But what happens if Kindl or Lashoff are dumped and we suddenly get a couple injuries on the blueline? Screwed, is what.

Maybe if San Jose completely tanks, and somehow we acquire RH Dman Brent Burns without giving up too much. :-)

It's not like the youth don't know how to win. You can't discount the Calder Cup. That's Andersson, Tatar, Jurco, Nyquist, Dekeyser, Mrazek, Sheahan, Glendenning. You can't TEACH that, you can't BUY that, it's a huge experience.

Wasn't it Bruce Boudreaux who talked about how dangerous the Wings are when you combine the awesome veterans with a group of kids fresh off a Calder Cup victory?
