#2570235 Sekera to Red Wings ?

Posted by DickieDunn on 12 February 2015 - 03:42 AM


I watched almost every match that CAR and DET played so far.

In my opinion DET needs one more top d-man for PO. And yes, he is top d-man + awesome pp.




It was across all media in my country, he didnt accept offer from CAR so they want at least something, not sure if its gonna be DET/ANA thats just what media said.


I don't see him bumping anyone out of the top 4, and like others said he shoots left.  If they get a D it will be a clear upgrade and/or a right shot.

Waht does he bring that Detroit needs?  Nothing.

#2569608 Original Six...Sorta?

Posted by DickieDunn on 10 February 2015 - 12:19 PM

He's just another jackass who says things just to get attention, whether he believes it or not.  Technically he's right, but the Original 6 doesn't mean the first 6 NHL franchises, it means the 6 teams that were around for years before expansion to 12 teams.

I don't think you understand player value. Every team has players like those kids, and they get more every year. They have no value on their own. Even as part of a package they don't have much value. Those types are throw ins until they actually show something in the pros.

#2569435 OEL Poll: Would you do it?

Posted by DickieDunn on 08 February 2015 - 05:29 PM

You are undervaluing our players and overvaluing oel's return price.

I have a cornerstone defenseman who is 23 and signed for a good contract through the 18/19 season.  I'm not going to trade him for anything less than a king's ransom.  I want a good young roster player, 2 top prospects who should be NHL ready sooner rather than later, a high draft pick, plus more assets or I don't trade him.  Since there's no need to move him, unless he has privately asked me to trade him and will go public with his demand if I can't get it done, I can demand that much and just keep him if I can't get what I want.

#2569423 So, Evander Kane...

I could see Philly trading for him then getting tired of him and trying to trade him again in a year

So a bunch of guys who couldn't hack it in the NHL?

#2569098 Report: Red WIngs interested in Franson

Almquist is playing in the SEL Wings don't own his rights and I doubt he'll return to the NHL next year.


They own his NHL rights

First tier are projected top 6 forwards, top d pair, starting goalies. Larkin, Mantha, Sproul, Mrazek. Second tier are projected to be good players but there are questions and projections are more 2md/3rd line tweeners, solid second pair d, goalies who might start or might be backups. That's Pulk. Lesser prospects are projected bottom end of the roster guys like we Jensen Callahan and Ferraro, and guys who may or may not be NHL players. These guys have little value. Then there are guys like Frk and Tvrdon who have no trade value and are more or less filler for minor league rosters.

#2568575 So, Evander Kane...

Glad he's not our problem

I don't believe for a minute that the Leafs won't get more than a second for Franson, and adding Callahan or Ferraro to it won't be enough.  I'm not as high on Pulkinnen as some people, but that's the level of prospect they'll get in addition to the pick, and I don't want to move him for a guy who is probably only going to be here for the rest of this season.

Franson isn't that good. He might be better playing for a team with better structure but he might also get banished by Babcock. I'd rather stand pat if they can't make a major move.

#2567703 Marchenko recalled from GR... Ouellet sent down

Posted by DickieDunn on 01 February 2015 - 04:16 PM

Kronwall scores well over 40 points a year and is on pace to do so again, but he's not good offensively and his offense has dried up because he hasn't scored a ton the last week or two, because nobody goes through stretches like that. Gotcha.

The Wings are 1 point out of first in their division with a game in hand on TB.  Depending on the D brought in, I think one player absolutely puts them in the upper echelon of the league as long as they don't give up a bunch of roster players to do it.


It's funny though, people bash Holland for not having balls to make a trade, but then whenever someone suggests trading anyone decent to bring in a good player like Ekman-Larson or whoever, they panic and say no way, because FUTURE!

#2567175 Franzen on IR

Posted by DickieDunn on 30 January 2015 - 02:30 PM

Nobody would take Franzen in a trade.


If they try to waive him to GR, he'll retire and the Wings will be screwed.


If they waive him and release him, the cap penalty screws them.


The only real option is keep him and hope he either stays healthy, or sits on IR for the duration of his contract.


Pulkinnen or Jurco won't be waived.  If someone gets waived, it would be Andersson.  The Wings don't let players go if they're going to be good, the guys they have lost on waivers have done virtually nothing.  Knuble was the last good player the Wings let go because they didn't have room for a young guy, and that was more because Bowman wanted vets than anything to do with Holland.
