#2496389 Maple Leafs 2 @ Red Wings 3

Posted by DannyD on 18 March 2014 - 10:31 AM

Smith playing LW and Abby out for two weeks with a laceration. Wtf. The hockey gods are making us pay for the playoff streak. We must've struck a deal with the devil many many years ago.

 

I'd say screw the playoffs and bring up the kids but the kids are already up! Lol.

 

If we win tonight or even tie it will be nothing short of a miracle. REALLY need Franzen/Nyq/Tatar to step up tonight. Grab the bull by the horns and just hang on as long as you can boys. 

 

EDIT: If Bert can't go tonight our 4th line will most likely be...

 

Smith-Emmerton-Ferraro.   :scared:

Good lord this lineup is laughable. Who would've thought at the beginning of the season we could be playing a 3rd and 4th line of

 

Pulk-Glendening-Miller

Smith-Emmerton-Ferraro 

 

That is... atrocious. I would like to see Smith play wing tonight. Just for fun, because really how much worse can it get? Maybe Mantha's team will crap the bed in the playoffs and we can get him in for a few games of experience before the season is over. 

 

 

Ferraro will be the 7th Griffin to make his NHL debut this season according to the Wings website. 




#2495403 3/14 GDT : Edmonton Oilers 1 at Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

The kid definitely thinks shoot first. He had probably five shot attempts, but maybe three made on net. Two of them were absolute howitzers during a powerplay. His highlight of the night however was an open ice hip heck against David Perron, I believe. Considering his limited ice time, he made his presence felt.

Thanks! Hopefully he can solidify a spot in the lineup even when Jurco comes back.

Good for Smitty for standing up for himself.

#2490957 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by DannyD on 05 March 2014 - 04:56 PM

Let's have a look at the positives of this trade though:

 

1. Legwand has 40 points in 60 games under Barry Trotz's Nashville system

2. Legwand waived his NTC to come here, has a place here, so chances are he re-signs here (hopefully for a good cap hit)

3. Our centre depth is ridiculous, and will be for at least another 4-5 years (D,Z, Legwand, Weiss, Helm, Sheahan, Andy, Glendening) which made Jarnkrok expendable (Babcock would have none of that attitude)

4. Legwand has managed to stay relatively healthy most of his career, whereas our other centres are made of glass right now

5. He's got great speed and is a decent 2 way centre (you can't play in Nashville if you're not a 2 way player)

 

All in all, Legwand makes our team look much, much better. He gives us a chance at the playoffs, especially since Datsyuk is now out for three weeks and Helm is out. Andersson as our 1C for one game is one game too many. On another note, I absolutely love Sheahan and his line. Their shifts are easily our most exciting shifts each game.

You. I like you. You speak wise words.




#2490927 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by DannyD on 05 March 2014 - 04:46 PM

Consider this:

 

Why would one of the better AHL prospects go home if they can make more money here and get a place on the big club soon? The Predators need offensive help their D and goaltending are set so it's not like he wouldn't have chance there. If he is indeed set on going back this deal would be better but till that happens I am not buying it.

 

Jarnkrok wasn't making Detroit next year. Sheahan has passed him up obviously and Jarnkrok isn't a 4th line guy. Not his game. 

So what if he plays for Nashville? He wasn't going to play for us. If he makes Nashville's club good for him, they are in a different conference. No harm. 




#2490896 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by DannyD on 05 March 2014 - 04:37 PM

People comparing Legwand to Weiss. smh...

 

Weiss in 26 games has 2G 2A

Legwand in 62 games has 10G 30A

 

Holland said Legwand is going to be our #1 center for awhile between Nyquist and Franzen. So I'm assuming Legwand is #1 for the next 3 weeks while Datsyuk is out. Still gives us a chance to make the playoffs. Certainly a hell of a better chance than Andersson playing #1. IF we make the playoffs we could do some damage.

 

Z-Pav-Alfie

Nyquist-Legwand-Franzen

Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco

Miller - Glendening/Weiss - Abby.

 

I feel a lot more comfortable playing Legwand #2 than Weiss at this point. At least it would allow Z and Pav to play on the same line if we make the playoffs.

 

EDIT: Could also allow us to buy out Weiss this summer and resign Legwand.

If Jarnkrok is indeed leaving for Sweden it's a good deal. Otherwise I stay pissed. I hadn't heard anything about him leaving until today honestly.

Posted by DannyD on 05 March 2014 - 04:22 PM

Holland still hasn't confirmed it's Jarnkrok or Khan would've said so. Imo he waits for the end of the presser, says Jarnkrok and runs.

I wanna hear it from Holland before I go drown myself in the pool.

If it is in fact Jarnkrok I would've rather brought him up and played him in Detroit than trade for Legwand.




#2489867 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by DannyD on 04 March 2014 - 11:12 PM

 

 

2 of those 3 guys are already sitting.  I also don't know what's wrong with Datsyuk's knee, and unless you're on the Wings' medical staff or know someone who is, I doubt you do either, so know the hell knows if it's an injury that needs surgery.

 

I think that if they call up Jarnkrok and/or make a move to bring in someone, they'll be able to hold onto the playoff spot, which I think is the mandate from ownership.  Hell, even shifting Mule over to center could be enough if Datyuk is going to be back in a few games.

 

I know they are sitting, but it doesn't mean Babcock won't put them in instead of bringing some kids up from GR.

 

I don't know what's wrong with Pav's knee but I would assume he needs some sort of surgery or at least a good deal of rest. I feel like he probably needs some sort of surgery but is trying to tough it out for the team in hopes of at least playing a few games. Can you imagine how much easier, yet tough to swallow, Hollands job would be right now if both Pav and Z were out the rest of the season? I don't think we would be talking about a trade at all, if we did it would be more selling than buying, imo.




#2489063 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by DannyD on 04 March 2014 - 11:24 AM

The thing with Kesler is, does he even waive for the Wings ? Yeah, he is a Michigan boy but other than that the Wings situation is not that much different from the one he currently is in. The guy wants to win a cup neither Detroit nor Vancouver are going to be cup contenders in this or next year.  Another thing to consider is again the asking price, with Pittsburgh offering Pouiliot, Bennet, Sutter + 1 let them get him and mortage their future...

 

Jurco, Helm, Kindl + first won't get the job done and Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan and Dekeyser should be non starters, period.

 

Heck even Holmgren was rumored to be shocked by the asking price one of Couture, B. Schenn, Laughton + 1 so go along Shero add another piece for your insane top 6 instead of fixing your D :D

 

As for Vanek if the Wings want him, make him an offer come July 1 the guy has said over and over again, he will test free agency.

 

 

Kesler, who has a no-trade clause, is willing to accept a trade to the Flyers, as well as the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings, both of whom have also inquired about his availability.

The Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings also expressed interest in Kesler, but the Canucks will not deal him to either team, while the Toronto Maple Leafs and Columbus Blue Jackets have been told Kesler will not waive his no-trade clause to go there.

#2488799 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by DannyD on 03 March 2014 - 01:41 PM

So Pav is out Tuesday and Weiss had a setback. Without our three top centers. Man, I hate thinking about selling the farm for someone but I feel like we might be more in on Kesler now.

 

I'd do Helm, Tatar, 1st for Kesler.

Kindl, one of Oullet/Sproul/Jensen, pick for Erhoff.

 

IF we could make it to the playoffs and have Pav and Z back we could go...

 

Z/Pav/Kesler

Nyquist/Weiss/Franzen

Jurco/Sheahan/Alfie

Miller/Glendening/Abby

 

Kronwall/Erhoff

Big E/Dekeyser

Smith/Lashoff
