Thanks kip


#2527551 It's too bad about us having Weiss...

60 points for a second center is very good. We can't have a team full of superstars anymore.

Even if he put up 60 points and 25 goals?

How and when to rush the puck, freewheel and create in the offensive zone. Surely you don't think Kronwall is better than Boyle at that.

 

he claimed kronwall could teach smith anything boyle could, and that smith and kronwall are very similar players. he then said smith and boyle were opposites (which contradicts the kronwall can teach smith anything boyle can argument) and followed up with a bold statement that boyle would get less than 20 points... it's like we've never had offensive dmen. Kronwall can put up 50 points on our "terrible" offensive team, but boyle can't put up 20 points. This is clearly a hate towards any potential moves Holland could make befoe we even see what happens and how it works out.




#2527310 Spezza Requests Trade

Keep in mind Spezza and Ryan are both UFA's after this season and OTT is broke. Well their owner is, thus why they are looking to dump salary. We could very easily put together a deal for both and resign both of them-which should be agreed to ahead of time. 


two things, that deal would cost way to much, and I doubt Ottawa would deal with us anyway.

And secondly, if I recall correctly Holland didn't want Ryan last year. I could be mistaken on that though.

What could Boyle teach Smith that Kronwall can't?  Kronwall is the better player.  He's had more success.  Plays a gritty/offensive game (the way we'd like Smith to play).  And he's a lefty, like Smith.  Boyle and Smith have very little in common aside from the fact that neither are likely to score 20 pts. for the Red Wings next year (sorry, I had to).   
 
Like I've said before, you can justify it however you like, but adding mediocre players to a mediocre team just leaves you mediocre. 


Just because you want to be negative doesn't negate facts. Boyle has never ever gotten less than 20 points. Even in the lockout season. Might as well say Datsyuk will get less than 40

Interesting tidbit from Chuck Pleiness:

Chuck Pleiness ‏@wingsfrontman 5m

@DavidEnglander @WingsRiders @4thLinePlugger Boyle is No. 1. And if they can fit Ehrhoff in as well they will as well.

 

 

So much for the kids are alright, if that is truly the Wings strategy. But I wouldn't complain if we landed em both.

 

ehrhoff should be higher priority than boyle IMO, but i understand the need for a righty, not too sure why they circled back to boyle after holland said he was asking too much
