#2679304 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

Posted by Euro_Twins on Yesterday, 12:03 AM

 
Surely Holland called Chayka ahead of the draft day trying to unload Datsyuk's contract. But on the draftday Chayka confirmed that it was him proposing this trade to Holland as he want Chychrun who was still available and who they even considered to pick at #7. Other teams above us may not have been willing to trade down so he approached Holland with this deal. Chayka seemed like the obvious choice for us and from what I heard we wanted him. But granted, I don't know it and there were rumours heading in both ways. It doesn't really matter in the end. Chayka obviously wanted the guy and he would have get picked soon...if not by us soon after.


If we signed stamkos on July 1 does Holland get any credit or no? Just seems like you're really trying to shovel crap down everyone's throat to prove your point

First, how the hell do you know who initiated trade talks? For all you know, Holland could have approached Chayka with the proposal, taking complete advantage of the 27 year old GM... Secondly, how the hell do you know Holland had any intention in taking Chychrun? I would agree that he seemed like the logical choice, but for all we know, there was something about the kid that our scouts didn't like, and we weren't going to take him regardless of there being a trade or not...


Impossible. Holland had no hand in the trade. He just said yes. Holland got lucky....

Give Kenny credit when it's due. He's been taking a lot of heat around here lately. Nice to see him getting some praise for a change. Hopefully it's a good sign of things to come

Love the deal. Can't see how anyone would hate it. This will be a LeftWinger approval.


Not frankgrimes approved though

Let's retire the name datsyuk. No player named datsyuk can play for the wings again. They will have to legally change names.

Lot of wishful thinking. Hope you're right about even half of them.


Isn't all of Toronto's young guys just "wishful thinking" too? Or does that only apply to us?

Do people honestly think Stamkos will sign with Detroit? If so, what the hell for? He's basically from Toronto which, if folks take off their homer glasses, is on the rise. The Leafs have a great coach and lots of high picks in their future. Another option would be Buffalo. It's not terribly far from Toronto and is also on the rise. All Detroit can offer is similar proximity to Toronto and, aside from Larkin, a bunch of middling prospects and picks.


Larkin, athanasiou, mrazek, mantha, svechnikov, nyquist, Tatar


#2677247 2016 SCF: San Jose Sharks vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

This run is all based on luck and to top it all off they get to play the worst playoff team in the history of the league in the final, SJ best two centers are Couture 2nd liner and Pavelski who's just a solid two way guy with a good one timer on a team with skilled passers I'd say his stats are inflated he plays with joe friggin Thornton ovi would score 70-85 on that sharks team
The Sharks are simply too beat up they had to beat LA NASHVILLE AND the BLUES the three biggest teams in the league probably they have nothing left to give they never had a chance to keep up with this team
he hasn't utilized Stamkos skill set since he got there and it shows.. Not one fifty goal season for a guy who couldn't stop scoring before coop came yeah I'd say it's his fault, now that wouldn't have been so glaring if his team was healthy because the series likely never even would've reached a game 7.


I'm not saying he utilized stamkos properly. I'm saying the playoffs had nothing to do with how stamkos was played. Since he didn't play

That means we will probably never see him in a wings lineup


Right. Cause we've NEVER had that type of player on the wings

I don't think we lose anything either because we get Maple Leafs 3rd round pick next season if we don't get it this season..?


Ya we get it next year for sure. No 3re round pick for us this year, via the zidlicky trade. Guy was selected in the third round, and we get him with our worse third round pick after he's had two 40+ goal seasons since being drafted. I'd say we win this deal big-time

I actually think Fleury has been good in the playoffs other than 2 years....which were dreadful.  With them going back to Murray, I wonder what that does to Fleury's confidence?  Game 5 of the conference finals was a tough spot to be starting your first game in a couple months, so perhaps they discussed this and whether they stuck with it or not wasn't a big deal as he needs to shake off the rust.  On the Murray side, perhaps they thought he just needed a break as he never started that many games in a row before + high pressure games.  I also don't think it was just 1 bad game, he wasn't great for a few in a row.
 
I think they are in trouble now...obviously being down 3-2, but it's never good to have a question mark in goal at this time of year.  They'd probably argue the issue is deciding between 2 very capable goalies, which is probably true, but the whole mess they've made of it can't be a confidence booster.


I think what you mean to say is that fleury has ONLY been good in two playoffs. Other than that his numbers range from 2.40-4.63 gaa and .875-.915 sv%
