#2481259 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by WingsallTheway on 04 February 2014 - 03:19 PM

I think its almost safe to say Holland won't be making any moves this year...(again)

 

 

He said he was going to wait and see how the few games before the olympics go before he decides to make any moves, and with a few points in a few games he'll probably sit tight again.

 

If anything I could see a very minor move, hopefully getting a 5th or 6th defenceman in return without losing anyone valuable. (quincey not included) Plus with the added cap issues, there isn't much Holland could really pull the trigger on if he wanted to

Next season is going to be interesting because there will definately be moves, Holland has no choice. So many players ready for the big club and no longer waiver exempt so that is going to be interesting.




#2481210 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 04 February 2014 - 01:00 PM

I was a fan of something Winging it in Motown tweeted: Jerk Sauce

Or Tinky Winky's Jerk Sauce line?  Gotta get all 3 in.

Sure, after Stevie is done here in a few decades :lol:  Maybe coach??

 

How boss would it be with Stevie as GM and Z as assistant GM?

redwingmachine line.

Why does every line need a name?

 

They don't, but it sure beats discussing whether Kronwall is a top 30 dman...

I still think Ott is worth a shot. With no one really knowing what's up with Datsyuk, and the jury being out on Weiss, and Helm's health a constant concern, and Andersson being very vanilla, and Sheahan being a call-up kid, and Glendening being a call-up kid, and Z's back a major issue, and Franzen being a vegetable, it might be worth investing in some more center depth. Which reminds me: as long as Randy Carlyle is the coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Nazem Kadri is on the block.

(Salo and Timonen are both Finnish. So maybe they'd like the idea of playing on the same team, maybe even the same pairing. And we could bring up Pulkkinen and make all our Swedes feel uncomfortable.)

I agree with the original article,
http://thehockeywrit...h.MMLGdPY2.dpuf
I'd scratch Bombay for the speedy Premature Ejaculator.

"Stevie Weeks...The last addition to the Mystery, Alaska squad, Weeks was a teenager who skated the towns frozen river every morning. On a team full of speedsters, Weeks was clearly the fastest on the roster.

Weeks play was impressive enough for the Rangers to sign him to a minor-league contract."

Haha love the description of Weeks. But, I donno man. Weeks has Crosby face and can't take a hit. I'll take the Minnesota Miracle Man.

God I wish people would stop just posting capgeek rosters, without adding a comment. Girardi for 3,25 *lol*

 

The whole Vanek thing will be over within 2 months, the guy is a pure rental he wants to test UFA. So every team giving up an A level prospect + a 1 does so for a short window of his services. Smart GMs aren't crazy enough to do that, because if they want him make an offer on July 1.

 

From a Wings stance Holland would deserve to be fired if he packaged one of Sheahan, Tatar, Nyquist, Dekeyser or Mantha for him.

 

Snow will try hard to get back a serious package, because they've given up a lot to get Vanek. An argument can be made for both sides when it comes down to the driverseat, Vanek will make an already contending team better but they all know that Snow has to deal him now, or the Isles are going to lose him for nothing.

 

That was in a response to a post saying the Wings could trade Quincey and a pick for Girardi and be under the cap. 

 

I don't think the Wings should trade for any of the rentals unless they can talk go the player first and make sure they're looking for a team to sign with, not wanting to test the market.  The value of the rentals at the deadline is usually more than they're worth.




#2479993 Almqvist or Backman

Posted by DickieDunn on 02 February 2014 - 01:36 PM

Almquist is a RFA this summer.  I could see him heading home.  His offense isn't nearly good enough to make up for his defensive short comings.  People want Kindl, Quincey, and Smith gone for their mistakes, Almquist is a good step worse than any of them.

I predict that Kenny will answer some prayers and finally make a big splash at the deadline.

 

I then predict that all those LGWers that criticized him for "kicking tires", "liking his team", and sitting on his hands are going to absolutely loose their minds when he trades one of Tatar, Jurco, or Nyquist.

 

You are absolutely spot on with the second part.  Though I'm still skeptical that he'll make a move at all.

Vaneks going to a cup contender. (Pit Bos Ana St louis) one of those types.

ALL I WANT FOR PUR TEAM IS DAN GIRARDI!

Didnt anyone watch the game yesterday/ the super bowl? Defense wins championships! We need a top 2 dman!
At this point pur expendable assets are:

Quincey
Kindl
Cleary
Bert
Eaves
Miller
Andersson
Almqvuist
Picks

Aslong as were not getting rid of Goose,Tats,Jurco,Mantha or Oullette im good.


#2479593 Injury Updates

Posted by DRW Dominance on 31 January 2014 - 10:57 PM

I think Ken said during the game "maybe" Monday for Pav. Of course, he has been close for weeks now. I am to the point where I would be surprised if he's back before the Olympics.

i would rather him not play in the olympics.  i'm really leaning towards the nhl bowing out all together and leave the olympics to the amateurs.


Ya If it was a groin or muscle pull you wouldn't expect that he would be out a month (or at least played a few times here and there and re-aggregated it). From the sounds of things in the media updates he hasn't been close to a comeback and then had a setback either. If it was a foot/stress fracture I could believe that too. Not sure why they can't release the actual cause when it is clear he won't be back until its healed - this isn't the playoffs where you hide your injuries while playing injured. 

i was trying to pinpoint anything i could as well.  considering he was in the shootout in the WC.  it reminds me of the SC finals against pitt when he was getting a charlie horse drained and everyone was very hush hush.

Backman by a country-mile.




#2479788 2/2 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Capitals 6 (OT)

Posted by number9 on 02 February 2014 - 05:20 AM

Wow look at those leading stats.... We should probs trade dats for backstrom.

I mean hes younger right? Right? *blows brains out*


#2479150 Would you be ok with this roster?

Posted by kipwinger on 31 January 2014 - 11:06 AM

Ok, yeah. Happy, not really.

 

Kip: Not sure how you can think it's better than the current roster, unless you're meaning the current injured roster. Jurco, Sheahan, Callahan, & Ferraro are at best a wash with Alfie, Cleary, Bert and whichever of Eaves/Tootoo/Glendening/Sammy/Emmerton you want to consider our 14th. More likely a bit of a downgrade. Same goes with replacing Quincey and Gustavsson. Plus Pav, Hank, and Franzen all a year older...

 

I like the confidence you seem to have in the farm, but to say they'd be significantly better is probably an unrealistic expectation. But I do agree that that lineup really wants for a good forward and defenseman. I'd also rather see Mrazek starting in GR than backing up here, but not so much that I'd complain about it.

 

Bingo.  Compared to what we've iced for almost the entire season I think it's significantly better.  But every point you made is valid and I'd add that I don't agree with many of his lines/defensive pairings. However I think that roster (rearranged) would probably make the playoffs, but not challenge for the cup, which is what I think we're capable with a couple changes (Kindl gone, Smith to the third, puck mover to the second, and power forward to the top six).
