In Topic: Should the Red Wings Trade for Byfuglien?

06 February 2016 - 12:54 PM

People seem to come up with a narrative about how Byfuglien is too fat yet he consistently plays a ton of minutes every night and is arguably better than all of our current defenseman are and ever will be.


Surprisingly good skater too.

So there's a lot of talk about Byfuglien and if the Wings should make a move and trade for him.

And a lot more has been said in different threads, so, I wanted to take the chance and make a poll to see what your thoughts are and the overall feel about said trade


I wouldn't mind him, though isnt he a ufa after this season?

First time in a long time I turned off a game. Wasn't going to finish watching that Florida one. Funny thing is I was actually angrier most of the Tampa game, they just looked awful. Our best line was Jurco and Pulkinnen plus whoever it was.

No, Kane was did not score anywhere even close to this before.  Last year, his season ended with injury after 61 games (he had 64 points, or 1.05ppg).  If you want to look at his best PPG pace all year, that would have been at the 52 game mark (he had 58pts, or 1.12ppg).  This ignores when he was at 1.5ppg after game 2 and 3pts, I figured that sample size was too small :)

 

He's bee pretty consistently a point per game player over his entire career (just under, just at or just over).  At his peak last year, he had 58 points in 52 games.  This year, he has 73 points in 53 games.  So...how much is Panarin helping him vs. him just having a breakout?

Thanks for all the info, I was legitimately asking the question. I just remember thinking he was tearing it up last year. Anyway I've no doubt that Panarin is good, I don't think playing with Kane should take away from the year he's having. His age and prior experience maybe, but not who he plays with.

Anyone else think that fewer players will want to play in the ASG after this game?  3 on 3 and that kind of feverish pace is a test of endurance, especially if you win and have to play again.  

They could have obviously just been saying this because they're professionals and have to but it seemed like a lot of them were saying good things about the new format. I for one think It's kind of goofy, but it did seem like during that last game both teams actually wanted to win, which is unusual for the AS game.
