#2489172 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by DickieDunn on 04 March 2014 - 02:18 PM

Idk exactly how the waiver works but if we trade helm, I think we should pick up Cory conacher I know he tiny but he has some skill and can either play 3rd line C or even take 4th line wing


Anyone who wants him puts in a claim. The worst team that puts in a claim gets him.

They're both small. Any other similarities?No one here could say with 'great certainty' that the Ukraine isn't a great place to live either. Doesn't make it so.

They can both quarterback a ppl? Both are small hockey players but have good hockey sense and offensive abilities .... Both swedish ... In there 20s .... Both like Chinese food and horseback riding and own a pony in the Ukraine


Enstrom is also a much better skater and really isn't that great of a defenseman either. Almquist would be worse and the Wings have several d prospects who are or will be better.

Almquist 2 nhl games ... 1 goal .... So far so good

If anything I think he would really help our 2nd ppl unit

 

I don't care if he scored a goal in one of his 2 NHL games.  He's still bad defensively.  Lebderp was better defensively, and he'd make Quincey look like a Norris winner.

Holland quote:

“If there’s a hockey trade we’ll look at it, but we’re not looking at top-end rentals for those two reasons: because of our place in the standings and because of the unknown about some of our top players,” Holland said.

Holland keeps calling players on expiring contracts rentals, if he resigns them after the season they stop being rentals.

 

You can trade for them with the idea of signing them, but then they get there and decide that they want to test the market or go to a certain team regardless of what you offer.  That's why they're all considered rentals until they sign that new deal.  Holland isn't going to trade Ouellet or someone for Macdonald just to see him walk in July because he's always dreamed of playing for the Leafs or thinks someone else will pay him more than Holland offers.

People often point his size only and forget about his respective numbers in GR.He deserves a spot in Detroit next season.

 

Other people see big offensive numbers and think he's a good defenseman.  He's over matched in his own end in the AHL, he'd be a huge liability in the NHL.

What if we take john Scott, buffalo has to be willing to give him away with how bad he made them look, maybe he will respect the logo and babs coaching and embrace a real opportunity to be on a winning team, can't tell me there's many tougher than him, a 5/6th should do it maybe even package him with ehrhoff

 

Well, the Griffins could use another fighter, so why not.




#2488929 Naming the New Arena

Posted by DickieDunn on 03 March 2014 - 08:03 PM

Whatever the name, it has to be Arena or CentRE with the RE not ER...

 

You keep yer weird "re" crap on the other side of the border you royalty loving canuck!  This is MURICA!




#2488857 report: wings persuing ehrhoff

Posted by DickieDunn on 03 March 2014 - 05:15 PM

If they move Quincey or Kindl for Ehrhof, I'd be ok with it.  If they give up much more I'll be pissed.

Now Helm is expendable? This season really has driven you all mad

 

There's a difference between expendable and available for the right deal.




#2488756 Trade Deadline Prediction Time

Posted by DickieDunn on 03 March 2014 - 10:16 AM

I say yes to a D-Man...and maybe a FWD if the right deal pops up.  Rumor has it that the Wings are one of 3-4 teams that are in serious talks with VAN for Kesler...but even if a Boyes or Jagr presents itself I think Holland will move on it...within reason of course.

 

Expendable: Andersson, Kindl, Quincey, Helm, Eaves, Cleary, Bertuzzi, Samuelsson.

 

DO NOT MOVE Sheahan, Tatar, Nyquist or Jurco. Thank you.

 

 

So you don't want them to get a good player?

To New Jersey - Landon Ferraro, Nick Jensen, conditional 2014 3rd round dtaft pick
To Detroit - Jaromir Jagr
 
To Florida - Jakub Kindl, Joakim Andersson
To Detroit - Tom Gilbert
 
Jagr - Datsyuk - Franzen
Nyquist - Weiss - Alfredsson
Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco
Miller - Helm - Abdelkader
Eaves / Bertuzzi / Cleary
LTIR - Zetterberg
 
Kronwall - Ericsson
DeKeyser - Smith
Quincey - Gilbert
Lashoff


Jagr will pick the team he thinks gives him the best shot at another Cup. He won't come to Detroit.

That's a big overpayment for Gilbert, especially since Holland said no rentals.

if it makes you happy eklund says wings are in for vanek

 

only way that makes any sense is if amac is dealt too.

 

ive heard a lot of bad things about amac do not really want him.

 

 

It does make me happy because that means the Wings won't get him.  How anyone still pays attention to eklund is beyond me.

Posted by DickieDunn on 02 March 2014 - 06:43 PM

Ya and they'd only have to give up something like Tatar jarnkrok ouellet mantha and a 1st to get those 2 guys .... But hey it's worth it

 

Would you trade those guys if it meant winning the Cup this year?




#2488627 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by DickieDunn on 02 March 2014 - 05:50 PM

Realistically, bringing Kesler here would almost require a 3 way trade.  Weiss has no real value right now because of his injuries unless Vancouver decides they don't care if they make the playoffs.  So it'd have to be something where Kesler comes here, a center goes to Vancouver, and the Wings send out younger guys and prospects.  Legwand, Stastny, Gagner, Zajac, Ennis, Dubinsky, and Kadri are possibilities for that.

If the Wings can add a good defenseman, I think they're going to be dangerous.  If they can get Kesler and a defenseman, they'll be one of the better teams.
