#2491706 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 March 2014 - 02:11 PM

Agree with everything you've said,but we're talking about Ken the overripe master who threw kid under the bus after 40 AHL games while playing top 6 minutes for the Griffins.

 

Understand his position.He had to overpay to help the Wings,but it's not fair to criticize kid's and Blashill's work just to justify himself in this trade.

 

Like I said for me its not about Legwand I like him but I'm getting sick of Holland and his mojo:

- we are only making hockey deals --> this was highway robbery by Poile so the opposite from a hockeydeal

- throwing kids under the bus to make himself look better or like a genius for no good reason

- says you can't fix one of the teams biggest problems toughness, grit well Burke, Mactavish fixed it within weeks

- he now likes our youth and what is he doing ? Trades away our best center prospect yeah Jarnkrok needs to bulk up and put on some serious muscle but the kid is 20 plenty of time to do that

 

Still wanna get rid of the kid? Fine package him for some much needed defensive help you know someone like Ehrhoff, Myers or use Vancouvers firesale to your advantage a get a guy like Hamhuis or Bieksa (maybe both) here.

 

This is not the mastermind we are used to. Between 2009 and 2014 something has changed. Thanks for all the great work Holland but now I'm wishing you would have retired with Lidström and made room for another guy.

I love Legwand, I'm just concerned about the moves Holland continues to make.

 

Same here nothing against Legwand. This has to do with Holland and his mistakes adding up extremely quicky and for sure the uncertainty of our future past Z and Pasha.

 

as for putting on weight well I know exactly what you are talking about I had to work my butt off in the gym and just couldn't put on weight ( = adding muscles) without taking some very good Whey gainers, creatin and other stuff. I'm also a bit taller so putting on weight takes even more time but these are professional athletes they have access to stuff we'll never get so I think putting on weight should be easier for them.

I think the Holland bubble has burst he is no longer one of the best GM's in the NHL, the cap has taken a lot of steam out of his sails. I think it's time to create a new position, promote him, and get some fresh blood into the organization by hiring a new GM.

 

Yeah I mean move up and become vice president of hockey operations, let the Captain, Lombardi, Shero or Chiarelli take over for him.




#2491528 Ken Holland's Moves From 2009-2014

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 March 2014 - 12:00 AM

 

Clarkson sucks. He has no hockey sense, he's been suspended twice since becoming a Leaf, and his contract is nightmarish. (And yes, I realize I'm the same guy who wouldn't mind having Chris Stewart on our team. But, see, Chris Stewart can actually produce.) Weiss is a better player, he's just been hit with injuries.

 

Well in hindsight neither of the two is a good signing so far, that's for sure. Chris Stewart didn't get along with Hitchcock him and Babs would absolutely hate each other after two weeks tops so I understand not going after him. Although for a franchise with so much resources it's a bit of a shame that we can't get any superstars to sign here or at least stars and sorry that's on Holland.




#2491519 3/6 GDT: Avs 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) Sorry Nick.

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 March 2014 - 11:48 PM

So very well deserved bummer to not see the Ilitch family attending this great ceremony. The Captains ceremony set the bar incredible high St. Nick deserves the same. Man I for sure will shed a tear one of the last reminders of the best hockeyera ever. God wish I could be 2002 all over again.

#2488965 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 March 2014 - 09:53 PM

 

He's already got a second Luongo situation... with Torts not starting him in the outdoor game...

 

So really, he wants an additional headache on top of the headache his coach created for him.

 

So true, I feel horrible for Luongo such a great goaltender and classact with the way he is handling all of that. Wonder at what point Aquilani is saying enough with this and fire him.

 

Man if Shero is really offering Sutter, Pouiliot a first and third and Gillis declines then just wow..




#2488957 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 March 2014 - 09:21 PM

I don't see it that way at all. With Kesler, they are even bigger contenders every year for the next 5-7 -8 yrs. they're in the middle of a era right now, they've got to capitalize on. It, just like we should be capitalizing on the Datsyuk Zetterberg era instead of putting them with Bert and Abby.

 

Their top 6 would be tremendous but guess what if they are running into teams like the Blues, Kings, Bruins or any team with a strong defensive concept things won't end well for Pittsburgh again. It has been proven time and time again defense wins championships.

 

Giving away their best offensive and defensive prospects + a first for a guy who will be an UFA after this year and for sure asking for a raise? If I'm Shero I'd rather look at at the Schenn brothers to bolster the D and O. For his size Kesler is also a big diver and a somewhat primadonna.

 

Just listened to the Insiders and wow Gillis is insane if he doesn't come down on his asking price. Maybe he wants a second Luongo situation..

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 March 2014 - 08:51 PM

God please let Shero win it and overpay for him. The Pens are really drying out their future giving away top prospects and firsts like it's a candy bar Who needs defense anyways...Hell yeah to Scott he is a tough customer and will fight everyone not his fault that Nolan is such an idiot who won't let him fight. I am watching the Leafs right now and Columbus is taking runs at Reimer...good job nor having the bash brothers in the lineup...

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 March 2014 - 08:20 PM

I don't think the asking price for Kesler is shocking we are talking about Gillian here. A guy who rather makes his organization and the involved player look bad instead of accepting a fair deal. Kesler is not Toews or Crosby so yeah two top prospects and a first rounder is not gonna happen. Tsn is really hyping this thing up sadly also their last trade deadline f*** you Rogers

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 March 2014 - 01:12 PM

LeBrun just tweeted that Moulson NOT at practice today, but GM says no deal in place....Hmmmm...

 

Kings or Blues bound I would say

 

Next ones Hodgoson, Myers and Ehrhoff after that their team will be historically bad like desasterous.

@AnsarKhanMLive:  Holland said Weiss had setback today and is going for tests. Not a good day for him, Holland said.

 

Shut him down for the regular season and if this team makes the playoffs see what he can provide fully healthy. Why risk further injury? Guy is obviously not the differense between a cup and no cup




#2488771 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 March 2014 - 12:59 PM

A key who would only cost signing the contract would be McLaren tough guy and decent fighter willing to drop the gloves against anybody. Leafs (WTF) did put him on waivers today, they gonna regret this as soon as the Bruins are coming to town.




#2488553 Marty St. Louis wants out because The Captain hurt his feelings

Posted by frankgrimes on 02 March 2014 - 12:28 PM

I'm trying to look at this as unbiased as I can - which is obviously hard because it involes two of my favorite players - so:

 

Martin Saint Louis:

A guy who has been doubted his whole career, played his heart out for this franchise and would have been a snub two times in a row with his own GM being the boss of team Canada. It's like a girl telling you you can have her if things are going south with her current boyfriend and once that happens she is choosing AGAIN another one over you --> everyone would be pissed.

 

Stevie Y:

Turned the Bolts around in no time, doesn't want to act like a dictator and tell the other members Marty is on the team, period. Just another testament to what a class act this guy is.

 

So if I'm an 38 old MSL this would be my last chance at the olympics and therefore olympic Gold would I be pissed ? For sure getting snubbed one time is hard but two times I wouldn't sit well with me. If I'm Stevie Y should I really risk pissing off the other members by forcing them to take a guy they don't see as a fit ? Tough call.

 

MSL has to keep one thing in mind though if it weren't for his GM he would not have a gold medal yet because there is no way Stevie would pass on him for a third time. I really hope these two are figuring it out and he will remain a Bolt guy is pure class and deserves to have his number retired in Tampa.

Posted by frankgrimes on 01 March 2014 - 10:59 PM

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


For what exactly? For another non Stanley cup, because Kesler is far from what they need. Yeah Shero go for it and waste another year of Crosby and Malkin. The penguins need defense and as long as they aren't improving their biggest weakness no offensive power is going to help them.

Also Kesler would only be a number 3 center on their team just like here so no wax something like him accepts that.
