#2577655 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on Today, 02:24 PM

 
Just another tough guy lover scared away from here by the modern Wings fan.  

Only dinosaurs and rush Limbaugh are scared away by the thought of change.


#2577653 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on Today, 02:22 PM

At first I thought this was a good move, but his numbers this season are nothing to write home about. Still, he's a better puck moving defenseman than most our jobbers on the blue line. Hopefully, his woes had more to do with NJ than him being an old defenseman.  
 
 
P.S.  Only Holland would trade for a guy that got beat up by Sidney Crosby in a fight. :glare:   

Crosby doesn't beat people up, he wrestles them to the ground and tries to concuss them, then take advantage of their b-holes.

Bill Roose saying two picks?
 
The Wheel Deal ‏@Bill_Roose
#RedWings have landed a right-handed shooting D-man, Marek Zidlicky from NJD for 2015 conditional second-rounder and 2016 third-rounder.

We don't have a second rounder this year, so he's gotta be wrong.

Katie Strang and Kip Winger meet on twitter, fall madly in love, and STEAL THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

The only problem with this beautiful story, is there's not enough nic cage.

I disagree.  The franchise as a whole has given these three players many opportunities to win championships.  They should have repeated in 2009 but the Penguins had different plans.  In 2013 they had a 3-1 series lead on the Hawks and lost 3 straight.  There are other examples I could throw out there, but my point is that its not like they have been toiling in hell with no chance to win a cup like many other great players who retired without a championship.
 
All 3 are going to be retiring with at least 1 championship.  I don't believe that this year or next year is a "all in" kind of season for the Wings because the health of the franchise is more important.  Holland won't mortgage the future to give 3 players another crack at the cup.  What he will do is give the team as a whole an opportunity to compete for a cup like he is this year.  He will set the team up for future success so the next wave of stars like Nyquist and Tatar will be able to captain a team to a championship of their own.
 
Keep in mind when the season started, many members on this forum thought this team was a fringe playoff team at best.  Some wanted to just "tank" the season for a high draft pick.  Oh how quickly we forget these facts.

I appreciate your response. Thanks for being decent...and I only said "thanks for playing" because i was clearly being called out and disrespected before hand. I felt like the person i quoted was being unneccessarily instigating.

I was responding to your posts in the same tone and context to which I was being spoken to, if you found that to be instigating, then I apologize for that and "calling you out."

I wasn't disrespecting you, I was stating my opinion on the matter.

Let's take it off the playground and back to respectful trade discussion. Points have been stated, it's getting heated, keep it under control please. The Wings making a trade is almost as rare as the Winter Olympics at this point, let's keep it friendly. 

Did I earn my rainbow and pony SIG?
:lol:

How old are you? May I ask? I turn 29 this month and I've followed the Wings religiously my entire life from age 8. For some reason i actually retain most of the generally useless history, info, players, trades, and dialogue I've heard along the way. I've followed the Wings for the entirety of Holland's tenure as GM and I have a particular addiction to information I've come across about NHL front offices. I like to think, as a fan, I'm about as informed as I can be enough to make the claims I do.
 
Holland has done a lot of things right in his time with the Wings, but he also had an All-Star cast of Front Office support along the way...not limited to Dellevano, Scotty Bowman (who I believe brought way more than people even thought...and they thought he brought a lot), Nill, Mark Howe, and several others. But since those people have started moving on, his ability to make good trades has nose dived. If Babcock creates good coaches, I believe Holland was created by other good front office people. HE does not seem to be a great stand alone GM. The two things that he is most credited for are also other peoples jobs (cap management and scouting). 
 
This is far more than vibes bro, but thanks for playing.

Ha. Here's the thing man.
I'm not playing, and even if I were, the sh** you're talking about isn't something you win, your bravado, cockiness, and knowledge of the red wings is all well and good, but you're basing everything you're saying off speculation.

There's no proving your point, and even if and when these prospects, ken Holland, and Jim nill all retire there will be no set way to determine who won this, because hockey IS a game, and their will always be ambiguity about things.
If the prospects make it in one place, theirs no guarantees they would've made it in the other.
And for all this Jim nill ken Holland who's better, who's worthless bs is obnoxious.
The fact that you lay it out So cut and dry, in such matter of fact way with your attitude doesn't make me want to discuss stuff with you, it makes me devalue anything you say.
And anyone who talks about it as such, is not old enough to have an adult conversation on the matter, regardless of age.

The more you know, the less you know.
Now please.
Stop trying to argue with me over something so little.
I don't think we gave up that much.
You do.
I get it.
You're not changing my opinion, no matter how much you tell me you know, and I'm not changing yours. And that's fine.

I have a feeling Holland could have traded this same package for a time traveling hossa from 09' and people would still be coming here ripping this move, just because the vibes Holland gives off tell you that he's a crappy gm.

im very well informed jimmy, the fact is kenny has stated he is not giving up his 1st round and so we just gave our 2nd round 2015
away in the Cole deal. We lost the 3rd round pick when we traded for Legwand and made the playoffs last year. In my book i doubt 
we get a top D man with what prospects we have in the system ( that we'd want to give up) and a 4th round pick, unless we manage
to skin some GM. thats why i suggested earlier we may get a vet such as Zidlicky as a rental for not much going the other way.

We lost this years third moving to get turgeon.
And the second round pick is still of little consequence.
This was a good trade.

FLA just got Jagr for a 2nd and a 3rd. Is Cole better than Jagr? Even if you think so...are Backman and Janmark worth more than a 3rd?

No.
Noone wouldve given us a third rounder for those two right now, so no. They are not worth a third.
And in the grand scheme of things, of course jagrs better than cole, he's fifth in all time scoring.
But Coles got more points this year, is more physical, and is faster.
