You can say about Smith what you want, but at least he gets pucks to the net.

Darren Helm makes this whole team, he can't come back fast enough.

 

 

Not to take anything away from Helm but his absence is a lame excuse for this slump. There are enough quality players on this team.

#2577754 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by derblaueClaus on 02 March 2015 - 05:28 PM

This definitely is the best option if we wanted to bolster up our Blueline. We are not committed with him if he somehow doesn't fit and payed almost nothing to get him here. It's like yesterdays a no risk, high reward trade and looking what others teams did these days I'm very glad to have Kenny at the helm. The future is still bright and with the addition of Cole and Zidlicky maybe the present is already brighter than we all imagine.

 

It also gives us all the options in the offseason, for example we're still able to pursue Green, this time with the reputation as a legit contender. Well done Mr. Holland.

#2576843 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by derblaueClaus on 01 March 2015 - 08:14 PM

We traded what is basically a 2nd round pick and a minor prospect for an aging UFA power forward with maybe two or three more years in the tank. Is it the mot exciting trade ever ? Nope. But it's a low (almost no) risk, high reward kind of trade which will definitely make us better.  What is not to like ?

Pretty sure he doesn't even have a phone.

He has tires. Isn't that enough ?

Finally able to watch some hockey again.

I was skiing last week, looks like I missed some great games. How did we look during the road-trip ?




#2571015 Franson to Preds

Posted by derblaueClaus on 15 February 2015 - 07:51 PM

It's not so much about what Franson is, it's more about how much does he improve the team. I don't watch as many Leafs games as you guys but from what I saw and read in his stats he is more or less on par with Kronwall regarding offense but worse defensively. In my opinion that makes him very good top 4 defender and a decent top 2. But we already have two, maybe three of that in Quincy, Ericsson and arguably DeKeyser.

 

Sure, they don't have the offensive upside of Franson but they make that more or less up with their better defensive play. So, would Franson have improved us ? Sure, we'd be a little bit more flexible and deeper on our blueline and increased our production a little bit. Would that be nice to have ? Of course. Would it worth the price of a top pick + prospect ? No. What we really need is a offensive top 2 D-Man to complement Kronwall on our first paring not another top 4 guy. Franson simply isn't that guy. And the price paid by the Preds is to high for just "nice to have", especially considering Franson is an UFA this summer. I'm glad Kenny stayed away from him and I hope he also doesn't trade for Petry for the same reasons stated here. The far better options are to get Yandle or to stay pat and try to sign Green this summer.
