Hope he turns out to be a star for you guys ... It'll make us think twice before we make a trade .... Goodluck! ..... Weber jones forsberg jarnkrok hornqvist future ppl line
so, when Holland doesn't pull the trigger on a trade cause the price is too high, everyone criticizes him for not making any moves, and that he shouldn't be afraid to trade a couple prospects for proven roster players. When he does exactly that everyone gets mad that he trade a prospect. Do you really think any gm would trade a top 6 center for ferraro or emmerton? we were lucky to dump eaves on them in the trade. Legwand has been very good in his first two games as a wing, and judging by interviews he has really been enjoying playing with goose and mule, sorry but we needed a center who could produce in the nhl now, and I am happy that Holland pulled the trigger, we needed a guy like legwand, I like the way he plays
Bertuzzi (someone I've heralded in the past) is playing terrible now. Even the few points hes been getting aren't special. IMO he's looked to be a liability on the ice lately. No sense of where to be offensively or defensively. IMO he's done.
Whaaa... Bert has been solid since being called up and I'm a bonafide Bertuzzi hater. 4th line looks like a scoring threat I'd keep that group together when healthy.
If people keep calling Kronner a number 2 I might lose it. He's our number one, he was Sweden's number one, he'd be a number one on over half the teams in the league. He's not a superstar or a legend, but he's a legit number one defenseman. If you honestly can't see the difference then, well, I don't know.
Lol funny you say that. Wasn't everyone crying all summer about losing him? When he was clearly a one dimensional player that really wasn't much value to our team. Especially with players like Nyquist and Tatar coming up. If we had Brunner this year everyone would be crying about him.
Kind of how just two days ago everyone (ss in 99.3% of all Red Wings fans on the Internet) were crying about Legwand and trying to make ridiculous claims that hes only a number 3 center? Jarnkrok who has never been in his entire career a top six type forward. Never in any league has he been a point per game type guy. This guy was a really good 3rd line center type prospect and that is it. Get real people. Legwand is going to sign in Detroit if we offer him a contract which we will likely do everything possible to make happen. What a great trade for our team. What a great hockey player and the perfect player that this team needed.
If the Wings are healthy come playoffs, we will be a team nobody wants to see.
I'm as angry about the trade as the next guy but something I didn't consider is Legwand really hasn't played with any superstar type players so he could rejuvenate his career playing with franzen, Z, or Datsyuk when they are healthy.
Kyle Quincey is playing sold hockey? I mean the rest of what you said gentleman's disagreement, but KMFQ has been a trainwreck all season. He makes boneheaded passes, he's always out of position, he doesn't score, he doesn't block shots. I mean he's closer to the next Lebda than the next Lidstrom.
And if you consider being first round fodder a saved season, you and I also deeply disagree on what a successful season is.
So not making the playoffs is better than making it and having a fighting chance? I don't understand how people can call themselves a fan with this logic. But.... but... but higher draft pick!
I'm glad the management has more pride than some if its own fans. Legwand helps this team compete while everyone heals up. When we get bodies back, we'll be better with Legwand than without. Why not just see how things pan out before ripping on Holland for making the deal? We got a good player that wants to be here. Lets just see what he can do.
Watch Legwand step on the ice for the first time in a wings jersey and his groin explodes. One of the debris hits Kron in the face and he falls on jimmy breaking his leg. Jarnkrok goes to nashville and scores all the gwgs for them including all 16 in the postseason.
Weiss isn't even playing which is why we need Legwand.
I'm ASSUMING this means at least one of Helm or Datsyuk will be out a long time. Maybe both.
It's a rental, he's a decent player. It's a good trade as long as we didn't have to give up a 1st or a decent prospect. We almost 100% needed to pick up help on center if we're gonna be without Datsyuk and Helm. And IF by some miracle we make the playoffs, Legwand could help us there too.
