#2491559 21 games to make it 23 years

Shutdown the first line Kings, Blues or Bruins style and well add to that our  unreal defense I'm sure the contenders are already in fear of potentially playing us.


Sacrificing Jarnkrok to make the playoffs is worth it to me. It would be nice to end this disastrous season on a positive especially for the young guys. This stretch will be huge for them and will be pretty damn exciting for a Red Wings fan.


#2491436 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

I think scouts get attached to their players and over value much like this site

Tofolli is a proven NHL player. Garth Snow is an idiot and had his price way too high then it looked like nobody was going to take him so he threw Vanek at Montreal

Lets see, one of two players who are on good contracts, are able to man a PP, and are pretty good defensively? I would have parted with one of Nyquist or Tatar and a B level prospect and a 2nd round pick easily.
 
Why? Because they are under team control, they are relatively young, and they fill a need that doesn't disappear the second week of April.


You're upset we traded Jarnkrok. Who is 3-4 years from maybe being an effective NHL player for a center we desperately needed. But you'd give up Nyquist/Tatar for Erhoff?

Cute! I must have hit a nerve.
 
Did I say anything about the Hawks being the better team? Nope. They were and it played out that way. What I did say was that the Wings took them to a seven game series. It was exciting. It was fun. It was playoff hockey.
 
I'll take 14 thrilling postseason games over an earlier trip to the draft day podium every year.
 
Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions would be happy to have another "fan" who wants their team to lose in the hopes of acquiring a higher draft pick.


It's these arm chair GM wannabes that want us to tank. I'm happy the franchise has a commitment to make the playoffs. It's called a winning environment and we're not trying to take any short cuts to success


#2490863 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

It would be nice if Jarnkrok fails to report to his new team. Then I'll have immediate satisfaction instead


#2490828 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Hopefully Jarkrok bolts to Sweden then the trade won't look so bad. I think guys like Andersson and Emmerton are untradeable and you might as well keep them around to serve a sort of purpose . Nashville needed a young center and Wings went down the depth chart


#2490811 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Nashville probably demanded a young center have to be sent. I guess ownership is insistent on making the playoffs

Need Legwand can't miss the playoffs no excuses. Legwand has a good chance of resigning here and then atleast we know what to expect out of him

Can't believe Callahan wanted 7.5M


#2489590 3/4 GDT: Red Wings at Devils

Posted by joesuffP on 04 March 2014 - 08:33 PM

I like these New Jersey commentators


#2489227 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by joesuffP on 04 March 2014 - 03:20 PM

 
We won't make the playoffs - but we'll have a mid-first-round pick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We could keep that pick, clear space for roster players next year and make our team better. Watch what Erhoff will go for


#2489191 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by joesuffP on 04 March 2014 - 02:39 PM

If holland wants to wait for Ouellette and Sproul to fix this Defense I guess Datsyuk isn't going to win another cup as a red wing. This time in 3 years we'll be trading him to the pens


#2489140 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by joesuffP on 04 March 2014 - 01:58 PM

Yes thank god we won't have a top 4 defensemen for years to come. The last 3 years teams have all gotten better around the league and we have stayed the same. There's no way ouellette will be an effective top 4 by the time datsyuk's contract is up


#2488911 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Erhoff isn't going to restrict us from signing a #1 defensemen even though there are none available. Think of him as a Quincey replacement which is an upgrade. There's no guarantee we'll be able to sign a better defensemen then Quincey in the summer in which case we'll have to resign him or he walks and our Defense is as bad as it's ever been. Then you waste another year being a fringe playoff team.
