#2488705 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 02 March 2014 - 10:17 PM

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

I'd go for Erhoff. Solidifies our top 4 and we can let Quincey walk in the offseason. Much needed offense that doesn't stop dead after the first pairing. Get him for cheap with that huge contract. We have a log jam of prospects ready to make jump to NHL with no room. Just makes too much sense


We also got a lot of good d prospects coming up soon (ouellet,sproul,backman,marchenko,almquist etc) and kronwall Ericsson dekeyser are locks to stay longterm ... Got kindl lashoff smith up now (I'm sure a few will be dealt) .... Just don't know if adding someone with a 7yr deal is a wise move

Adding a mark Stuart at the deadline might be better longterm and wouldn't cost as much

I don't see Holland including Helm in any kind of trade.  This team doesn't really have anyone to replace his role and even if they got something similar back as part of a trade it's still hard to replace his speed.  He has been plagued with injury problems but so was Kronwall for a good portion of the beginning of his NHL career and now he's been healthy for the most part.  Personally, I would just stick with the forward group they have out there and hope that Zetterberg can make it back in time for the playoffs (assuming they make it in).  A 3/4 defenseman is the most pressing need and I agree with everyone saying to pursue MacDonald from the Isles, if the price isn't too steep.

Ya I don't get why helm's name is being thrown around all of a sudden ... He's going nowhere at his best when he's healthy I'd say he's one of best 3rd line centers .... Tremendous speed great defensively can kill penalties , I'd say he's a type of player you need in the playoffs to win the cup

I'd say it's a safe bet holland and Babcock love him and unless he's demanding a 8 yr deal for 5 per type deal next contract I can see him here for many years to come

What do you guys think would be the cost to get kulikov out of Florida??

great, Pit in on the Kesler trades....if they get him, look out!

Hearing a 1st 3rd depres and sutter .... They can have him ... Seems every year pens keep trading there future away , they won't have much soon at this rate

Still think cup winner will be a western team .... Blues and hawks if I had to bet would be my picks at this point

I can't see how Holland can justify re-signing this guy. He isn't even playing and is injured (I thought he was just sick at first). So ineffective even as a depth player.


I just hope holland doesn't feel like he has to resign him cause he basically promised cleary he'd resign him after the cap went back up .... Feel bad for cleary cause he was loyal and turned down more money but it's time to go

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.

My point is Subban was benched from team canada because he's a defensive liability , he just got benched last game in mtl for a costly turnover ....your saying myers constantly plays bad(the way your speaking you make it sound like you seen every sabres game)

And the only reason Subban made team canada is so people wouldn't complain about the Norris winner not being there ....Babcock wanted no part of him

Just bitched about jarnkrok needing to score more ... And he just scored lol 1 goal and 2 assists so far tonight and pulkkinen 2 goals .... Future looks bright In hockey town

Myers is listed as 6-8. Yes the everyone is listed taller and heavier than they really are. but that is his listed height. he is RHed which is also very much a need. But at 5.5 million per year and needs work.....not sure I would go for it. Maybe on a more competitive team.....



If we had our full lineup we'd be more than competitive ....we dealt with an insain amount of injuries this season


Pulkkinen scored again ... 2 more goals so far ... Man would love him to play Tuesdays game see if he can bring some of that here ..... Also jarnkrok got 2 assists , just wish he'd score more but it's nice to see jarnkrok racking up the pts

Doubt Kenny trades Alfie after he ditched Ottawa for us .... If anything we should of went for jagr instead of Alfie


#2477985 Wings interested in parenteau ?

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 27 January 2014 - 11:35 PM

Link? The only thing on TFP regarding Parenteau is a dead link....
 
Also this probably belongs in the Trade Rumours forum.

Ya didn't wanna work .... Click on the rumors topic on top then click on read more where parenteau is mentioned and it then lists redwings Ottawa and montreal as teams interested


#2475021 Would you trade Jimmy for a top pairing dman?

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 20 January 2014 - 10:33 PM

I'm not gonna blame for our losses but he hasn't won anything yet .... Mrazek was a stud in the junior championships a stud for the griffins .... He's got a cool demeanour a great confidence in himself and has swag I could be proven wrong and I'd admit it I was wrong but for me theres no doubt in my mind this kid is a future star goalie ... He just needs more starts

They went into that season with Osgood #1, and Howard took over because Osgood struggled so much.  Howard wasn't planned as the #1, and he had more AHL time than Mrazek has had.


A lot more ahl time than mrazek .... And he's already way ahead than where jimmy was when he was 21


#2472827 2010-2011 drafts will be our savior

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 13 January 2014 - 06:59 PM

Just looking at the pasts drafts and my god , still early but those 2 drafts could end up saving us painful rebuilding years

We could of drafted "maybe" our future top 4 dmen In the 2010 draft alone in Ouellet sproul backman marchenko

Our potential (star goalie in my opinion ) future goalie mrazek

Then add jurco sheahan jarnkrok pulkkinen up front ... Wow


Just can't help to think (and hope) years down the road people will be once again in awe of the redwings draft history .... Can't wait to see these kids play
