It's Mantha's 3rd season. Athansiou has played one more year and is only 1 month older than Mantha....

Mantha also scored 50 last season ... I think his upside is way higher than athanasiou and I'd consider him above any other of our prospects if need be for a key trade

Disagree with mantha being the only high upside prospect though .... Someone mentioned jarnkrok only recently started playing good? Well isn't that what we want? Means he's finally getting it .... If he continues on this pace and gets a pt+ a game till the end of the season then there's a lot to be excited about

Pulkkinen's the same , wasn't sure on him but he's been scoring like crazy .... I do believe in a good situation with good linemates and his shot he can be at the least good for 20 goals

Petr mrazek has elite potential in my opinion .... Displayed dominating performances at the world juniors helped win the Calder cup In His first ahl season .... The kid just oozes confidence and nothing seems to phase him which is what a goalie needs to succeed

Only time will tell what happens to our prospects but I'd say we got way more player with high upside to be excited about

I like the guy, but he did fan on two one timers in the game I was at last weekend vs the Heat. :-)
He did look great on the PP, and man that guy slices the D with beautiful passes.


Well oshie/backea(don't remember which one it was ) took a shot and fanned and fell flat on his face this year lol ... No ones perfect :P

Lucky you man wish I could see so e Grand Rapids games especially now with the team stacked with such great prospects

Enstrom is also a much better skater and really isn't that great of a defenseman either. Almquist would be worse and the Wings have several d prospects who are or will be better.


Enstrom also is older and has more nhl experience ... And I do agree we have more better defensive prospects ahead of him but as of right now , today I think he could help our ppl

Beat reporter on Vancouver s Team 1040 phone interview this morning said the reason Edler did not go to Detroit last summer is because Gillis wanted Tatar, Sheahan, and Smith.
This is a good example of why Kenny says it's difficult to get hockey trades done. Sounds worse than dealing with jokers on Craigslist.
Also said Holmgren will really go after Kesler because Philly can't afford Pittsburgh getting him, they'll run through the East.
Pittsburgh wants to use Kesler as a 3c a la Jordan Stahl, I can't see the Diva in him content with 3c.


Wouldn't of done that deal either if I was holland

That's a fair POV I just think at the end of the day trading Helm is beyond unwing like.


Agreed ...all this helm trade talk is crazy I can see him here for along time unless he gets crazy with salary demands

Agreed. He's going to build his depth not subtract or maintain it. Ideally you have to think he wants to move lower end picks and prospects like Jensen, Paterson, 2nd round picks, etc.


I think depending on the return athanasiou can be a really nice trade bait with his 45 goals and we can afford to lose him with pulkkinen jarnkrok jurco sheahan mantha in our depth chart

Paterson could also have value .... Like holland said it would have to be a hockey trade were not good enough to risk these guys for ufa's especially with hank and pavelski being a ?

RED WINGS, SABRES DISCUSS EHRHOFF
 
The Detroit Red Wings aren't planning on making any moves for high-priced rental players, but the team is still looking to acquire a top-four defenseman.
The Wings have inquired about Vancouver's Alexander Edler and Buffalo's Christian Ehrhoff, but appear to be focusing on Ehrhoff, at the moment.
 
TFP reported last Thursday that the Wings had been inquiring about Ehrhoff's availability, and on Monday, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reiterated Detroit's interest.
LeBrun, however, indicated that the Wings would not overpay to get Ehrhoff.
Red Wings GM Ken Holland has plenty of young assets he is willing to part with, but some players he prefers not to deal, such as Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar.
Holland has also spoken to the Vancouver Canucks about forward Ryan Kesler, who is expected to be dealt by Wednesday's 3pm ET trade deadline.


 
 
C'mon Kenny, you CAN'T like this team... :-)


God no

If holland did that I would rage quit hockey. You don't trade away our highest first rounder in forever for 2nd round picks when our prospect system doesn't need quantity but quality. We have loads of guys - we are looking for the best available at this point - hopefully a big C with top 6 potential.


Well all depends what happens on trade deadline ... If we don't make the playoffs lets say :( and get 12th overall and some team wants it for something like 24 and 33 I'd consider it

I trust Kenny and our scouts .... I just wish we could get rid of all these extra wastes of players for any picks .... For once Kenny is forced to get rid of guys and we can't even get picks , wouldn't care if we'd got 3 7th rounders for tootoo eaves Etc...

I'd just give them all to Andersson tell him to have fun

Perfect world:
 
Coyotes become sellers and trade us Keith Yandle. 

Rather have Ekman Larsson


Sorry about the double post

I'd like to add: our first-round pick should be in play. Or, if not in play, then at least "possibly available." If what I'm hearing is true and Kenny's categorically refusing to even consider moving our 1st...that's immensely stupid.
 
We're not the Sabres. We're not rebuilding. We're retooling (there's a difference), and we're doing so with a relatively deep prospect pool which has already given us Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan, and Jurco. And DeKeyser would've gone in the first round had he been drafted, so he's basically a free first-round pick.


Just because dekeyser was a free first round pick doesn't mean we need to just give away our pick now .... There's still a chance we don't get In the playoffs so it would be High pick for us .... If we trade it way it should be for non rental player

I think a team would be stupid to give a 1st for Vanek without it being a conditional pick. In the end, Holland won't go for a rental. Wings landing Vanek would hinder on him singing long term. But it's already well known he wants to test the market. If he wants to play here, he'd come here this summer. No point giving up assets for him now.


Some team will give up a 1st round pick for vanek though .... Teams always do .... Minnesota gave up a ton last year for pominville for instance ..... And speaking of Minnesota the media's been saying for months vanek is gonna sign with them cause he has a home there and is good friends with pominville so it be a waste for us

Adding Kesler and Edler would greatly improve the team not only this year but for the next several. Tatar and Nyquist are good, but they're small. The picks and prospects may or may not develop. I wouldn't trade much for an old guy like St. Louis, or a pending ufa like Vanek or Stastny, but for guys in their prime who are signed after this year? You bet your sweet bippy I'd do it.

Thank god your not the gm :P ....

Kesler can walk in 2yrs .... I'd only get rid of all those prospects if we got a Tavares .... And as much as I wanna make the playoffs nothing is assured , stupid habs got lucky somehow and got 5 out of 6 pts , wish Beene picking up pts , Columbus Thx to bettman we been sitting and waiting till Tuesday .... Next few games are big

Don't wanna risk losing our first pick if we miss the playoffs , a few good players in the top 5
