#2541492 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

I agree Ekmanc. I think Marchenko is more NHL ready right now but I think Backman will be the better player down the road.

I also think Petry would likely resign if things go well here in Detroit. I know there would be no guarantees (Legeand) but he is a local boy, so he would likely re-up after the season.

I would also rather have an NHL defenseman that is what he is now, rather than a kid that projects to be that in 3-5 years.

Either way, I think Petry would be a great fit here and I hope Kenny goes after him before giving up any major assets for one of the bigger names being floated around.

Howard with an average trapper stop on Gagne.

 

You realize that he does have good games, right?  

 

Consistency is everything.  You people bringing up the word "average" in every post are only making it worse for your argument whenever Howard has a bad night.

People bashing Z are hilarious. Pretty sure he has earned enough to have a bad game every now and then he is human. He is a workhorse and I am not worried at all that he will find his game and getting Pav back soon will no doubt help him. 

 

BTW what an awful lazy play by Kindl he sucks.

*opens feed bag of Xanax*

We're having a s***ty game, yet the score's still tied. Worse things have happened.

Are you saying hell no in that you wouldn't do it? (because I obviously wouldn't either...) or that it wouldn't cost that much? Because I think it would cost that (or in that ballpark...)


 
I've got to disagree with you there buddy.  I don't think it would take that much.  The last three players of that quality to get traded were Bobby Ryan, Jason Spezza, and Ryan Kesler, and none of them went for that kind of return.  Actually, not even close to that really. 


The problem I see is Detroit, at least in recent years seems to pay more then they should or more...while teams like Toronto get players like JVR for Schenn

Unless he doesn't get playing time here so he welcomes the chance to play somewhere....

 

If someone sat you on the sidelines of their team, would you agree to go to that icy tundra of frozen hell, or wait until an (sadly, very likely) injury occurred on your current team? I'd have my feet up, smiling in the press box before I set foot in Edmonton. Heck, at least you can get those little drinks with umbrellas with them in Florida, and there's no one in the stands to bother you.

But in all fairness isn't that the best way to beat pretty much any team?

 

Maybe, but if you transition well then teams generally won't forecheck as hard for fear of giving up odd man rushes.  Our defense doesn't get the puck up very well, so teams don't have to worry about laying back.  They seem to press hard knowing that they're not going to get burnt deep. 

 

And even if that's the same game plan everyone has, we seem to be especially susceptible to it for a couple of seasons now.

Consistently mediocre maybe.....


I didn't get to watch any of the preseason/camp stuff but from what I read it sounded like at least Babs was impressed with Mrazek. I hope they get him in some games soon.
