Glad that's done with ... Contracts low is say but that's only cause it's a 2 yr deal I'd expect him to get 4-5 per next contract if he keeps progressing

#2518947 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 02 May 2014 - 06:27 PM

I haven't read most of this thread; so I apologize if my post is off subject of the current conversation. But I feel as if a there is a perfect trade opportunity to fill the current needs of the team. 
Buffalo is in full rebuild mode as of right now. There have been rumors over the past two seasons about them being willing to trade Tyler Myers. They also acquired Chris Stewart in the Miller/Ott trade. I'm not positive about it, but from what I've gathered, they acquired him in the trade to be another trading chip. 
Tyler Myers is a young, giant, right-handed defenseman, whom is oozing with potential. He's obviously struggled since his rookie champaign; but he has shown that he can be a dominating shutdown defenseman if put in the right situation. 
I know a lot of people have issues with Stewart... but he can be the perfect power forward for our team. He's big, right-handed, young, scores, fights, intimidates, etc... He's been quite inconsistent over his career, so far; but he's young enough to where that can be fixed with the right coach. And we do have the right coach for that. 
Unfortunately it would probably take an astronomical return to get both of them from Buffalo. It would probably take AT LEAST our 1st round pick, one of Tatar/Jurco, one of Sproul/Ouellet, hopefully Franzen and/or Kindl, and either another good prospect or a good established veteran. 
That is a lot to give up for two players, but I think it would be well worth it. It would fill our two biggest needs now, and in the future. Luckily we finally have a great and deep prospect pipeline, to where we can realistically pull of a blockbuster like this without destroying our farm/future. 
This is my hypothetical version of what I'd love to see:
2014 1st Round Pick
2015 3rd Round Pick
Thomas Tatar
Xavier Ouellet
Johan Franzen
Jakub Kindl
Joakim Andersson
Tyler Myers
Chris Stewart
2014 2nd Round Pick (I'd do the trade even if they aren't willing to give us this pick)
Thoughts? Too much to give? Not enough to receive? Horrible idea? Great idea that perfectly fills ours needs? ...... personally, I think it's the perfect two pieces that could be obtainable. The other perfect team to make a similar trade with if this wouldn't work is with Winnipeg... Bogosian and Kane. But I feel as if that would cost us more than the trade I proposed. Also, I apologize for making such a huge post! 
Make a blockbuster with Buffalo that would give us Chris Stewart and Tyler Myers. Two young right-handed players whom are oozing with potential. In my opinion, it perfectly fills our two biggest needs.

I like myers but man that's a hell of a lot to give up so I'd pass

Grand Rapids is gonna repeat I'm calling it now ... That lineup is ridiculously good

#2517343 Was Legwand worth it?

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 26 April 2014 - 06:52 PM

As the title asks, the Wings gave up a center a lot of scouts characterized as being as close to the next Zetterberg as there can be and a second for a 4th liner and 5 games in the playoffs. Was it worth the cost to keep the streak alive? Or should they have trusted the kids? Thoughts? 

If your asking then you know the answer

We got No choice but to accept we got seriously raped in that deal .... I sure as hell don't wanna see legwand return to detroit among a few other guys

Time to let the kids fly

I like how Jarnkrok is already being called the next Zetterberg after 12 games in the NHL.

I like how our saviour was a 4th liner here

I said he was a good 3rd line center on most good nhl teams and got sh*t by some ... Can't even crack the top 3 in detroit

Adios legwand

So spend it bud.
Sorry but if you spend the money, you get to do what you want with it. 
Don't talk the talk if you can't afford to walk the walk.

I don't live in detroit

#2504234 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 31 March 2014 - 07:44 PM

The problem is that Järnkrok is a very offensive minded center, he'd have to be given a decent amount of ice time and with good players or he won't be effective. He's certainly not the type of defensively responsible centre that Babcock loves and also he's tiny, we need size.
He's also not a great PKer like Sheahan and Glendening.

From what I've ready everyone's always said how good a 2 way player he is and is defensively responsible... Might also be a reason he's up in Nashville and forsberg is still in milwaukee

ummm did you read the edit to my post where I provided the article where he admits himself that he was close to moving back home?

I can't read swedish so I'll have to take your word for it ... But I know he went on twitter and said all the rumors were false

Why won't this thread just die already

Embrace the thread lol ... Help it reach 100 pages
