Well I hope this puts the "you can't trade within your own division" notion to bed.

Kinda hope Yzerman lets him rott in the AHL for a bit to teach him a lesson. 

I have no idea what Drouin is thinking. His GM is Yzerman. That guy has taken more crap and dealt with bigger s*** and been coached by hard asses his entire career. Drouin is taking the wrong approach with the wrong GM imo. 


Its funny you say that because on non-Red Wings sites, people are saying things like "Yzerman's a bully!" and "He's chasing all their best players out of town!  He won't have a job in two years, tops."  Makes me wonder about the ages of the people posting things like this.  Maybe they're not aware that Yzerman is one of the classiest, most well respected people throughout the league, past and present.  Saying that he's the problem is foolish.  I read that Drouin doesn't want to play for his AHL team because he doesn't want to get injured and hurt his trade value.  I think that's garbage.  Managers manage.  Players play.  A manager told him where to play and now he needs to get his butt out there.  Maybe INCREASE his trade value by tearing up the AHL and showing that he's ready to move up and just needs an opportunity.  Refusing to report to his AHL team is actually hurting his trade value.

Ericsson/Sproul is equally laughable as Ericsson/Kindl. Helm/3rd for Ladd is even more so. It's ok that you don't know that, but when you parade around these forums like some kind of roster management guru you open yourself up to some critisism.


So, you're saying that Sproul has equal value as Kindl? Helm is the almighty top 6 piano puller, why wouldn't he have value to someone, plus, WPG is closer to HOME for him, they may want him there.  Maybe they'd like what Helm brings compared to Ladd. It doesn't matter. It wasn't K/E for Byf. like you "boomed" it was. 


Listen, you were caught with your hand in the cookie jar with no cookies to be had, stop trying to make something up just to save grace....nobody PARADES around the forum's pretending to be a ROSTOR MANAGMENT GURU. I have been arouond a long time and have no problem taking critisism, negative or positive. But make it have some substance, don't laugh at an E/K proposal as a LOL proposal, when there was never a proposal to begin with. Then when you are proven to just be trolling around, you take another proposal (that may or may not be a fair one) and say "well, I meant this is just as bad...you know nothing..." Comment on WHAT I WROTE and I have no problem with it, make s*** up and then there's issues...next you'll be saying I never put Jensen on any roster proposals! :ninja:  Just drop it, get back to topic and comment on things that are said in text. Stop trying to bait users...

I don't have a problem with Nyquist at all, and wasn't proposing a trade because of his slump. The whole team is slumping, not just him. I was proposing a trade because I think we need more aggressive play from our top guys. And because Okposo is roughly the same age as Nyquist, scores roughly as much, but is also bigger and grittier. I don't want him because he's better than Nyquist. I want him because he's DIFFERENT than Nyquist, but still as good.

Assuming he'd reaign , it would take someone like Nyquist or Tatar to get him and I wouldn't move Tatar instead of Nyquist because it would be counter to the purpose of getting more aggressive (since Tatar is one of our only feisty wingers). S

I like how both goalies are playing the same amount of time so far. There's no need to change that.

It's back! Due to popular demand I'm bringing back the monthly LGW Schedule Wallpapers for download. I've limited the resolutions options a bit (6 for now), but I'm open to adding a few as well as long as the size is reasonably popular. Hope you guys like them! I plan on going back to the different-player-per-month lineup I've done in years past.

They said they couldn't have two Viking style beards on ice at one time. So they decided to keep zetterberg and scratch quincey.
