#2548623 Stars trade Sergei Gonchar for Travis Moen from MTL

Posted by martinezsvsu on 11 November 2014 - 10:25 PM

 

That is one of the biggest mistakes a GM can make, doing a deal just for the sake of doing a deal. I'm not against trading or free agent signings, but I would take what Holland has done over bad trades and bad signings any day.

 

Moves can be great for a team, but the key to being a good GM is making the right moves at the right time for the right players.

 

You want to see a team that makes moves for the sake of making moves, look at the Leafs over the last 10 years for a perfect example of that.

 

Unfortunately some fans need immediate gratification (not saying you, this is a general statement) and if things aren't changed immediately, or if there isn’t a major move made, they freak out.

the difference is nill traded away the old washed up guy and freed up 4.6 mil in cap space.

#2543232 10/21 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Canadiens 2 (OT)

Posted by martinezsvsu on 21 October 2014 - 09:10 PM

it shouldnt have been a penalty because price was going into abs, abs wasnt going into price. abs was just standing there, like he should have been.

The 4th line has been good, seems like they are always getting scoring chances for us and thats not even why we play them

#2536540 Selanne would still play if Boudreau wasn't Ducks coach

Posted by martinezsvsu on 18 September 2014 - 06:03 PM

 

Based on some of the tantrums he threw against the Wings in the 2013 season along with some stupid comments he made about Kronwall a few years back, I've had a hard time towing the the "Selanne is a classy guy" line.

he would be like the 20th classiest guy in the wings organization.
