In Topic: Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

And who is responsible for that decision? Right the GM anyway he now has 4 years to right a sinking ship. It's a really tough task and after we lose Babs it will be even harder Personally I would have preferred a rebuild in such an awesome draft year but seems like the streak is more important : (


 
But we are rebuilding Frank. It's just happening slowly and with less drastic effects, as the Wings are filtering in the young guys into the lineup to compliment and eventually succeed, the vets. 
 
I would still prefer to make the playoffs every year than go the traditional rebuild route where you don't even sniff a winning record for half a decade. But that's me. 


Especially considering there is no guarantee that tanking gets you anywhere. Imagine if the Wings had drafted Lawton instead of Yzerman and the Russians had stayed home.

Wasn't the rumor Nyquist, a d prospect comparable to Nossen and a first? I remember that the guys the Wings would send being older than the Sens package.


 
If that was the case, I'm glad we didnt pull the trigger. I see much more upside with Gus then Ryan, nothing against Ryan.


Nyquist certainly coasts less than Ryan.

Like Ryan? Bobby Ryan when he was first traded still had like 3 years left on deal.
How about sequin?


 
I would love to have Seguin, but I dont see Boston trading a young stud like him to a division rival.
 
Ryan wouldn't have been a bad choice, I remember there were rumors about that.

Elite was the wrong word but top line or second line is what I meant. And that's be guys like Ryan spezza Kessler and the list for son. These kinds of guys are traded every year and we used to be trading for them, now were not.


 
When and who are you thinking about???
 
2008 = Stuart
 
2007 = Bertuzzi
 
Other than those two we have zero other significant trades post lockout. And Bertuzzi left after only 18 games with us, so that trade actually hurt us considering we lost Matthias in it and he didn't re-sign. A sort of Legwand Jarnkrok scenario.
 
So essentially we have added one significant piece via trade in the 8 seasons of the cap world. So no, we didn't used to be trading for those guys and suddenly now are not. 


Losing Matthias has had zero impact. He's not good.

Spezza and Kesler either shot down a trade here or their teams thought that they had a better offer from someone else. If Mantha or Jurco were requirements for either, I'm nor sure either would be worth that. But let's say the Hawks want to move Keith or Seabrook. Would toy move Nyquist, Mantha, Hackman, and a second for him?
