#2569318 2/7 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Coyotes 1

That was satisfying. I’ve never felt less sorry for a sucky-ass team than I do for the Coyotes right now.

Holy crap. The stick work by Arizona on that shift by Andersson’s line. Unreal. Yet they call that “hook” on Nyquist in the first.

#2568950 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Am I the only one who thinks that David Clarkson might not be as bad as he's seemed in Toronto?  I mean, I don't think he's great, or worth his money.  But I don't think he's this bad either.  I think he's a good system player, and in the right system he's flourish again.  Which underlies a bigger point.  What kind of team does Toronto want to be?  Do they want to be a big, bruising, half ice team like San Jose, Anaheim, or Boston?  If so, keep Dion, JVR, Franson, Reilly, Clarkson, Panik, Winnik and trade or buy out Kessel, Kadri, Gardiner, Lupul, Santorelli.  If you want to be a skill team, do the opposite.  It's like the Maple Leafs are two halves of two VERY different teams. 

 

Yeah the worse halves.

Yup there pretty much screwed lol ... But I could maybe see them agreeing to pay like 3.5 of his yearly salary in a trade to just to get rid of him ... Don't see why clarkson would wanna stay there when he gets pooped on , on a daily basis by the fans and media

 

Then he shouldn't have gone there in the first place. I never feel bad for anyone that signs with the Leafs. Especially when you're a third line grinder who gets 5+M/per.

Darren Eliot, while a much worse goalie, is significantly better than Ozzie in every single aspect of broadcasting.  At one point last night, while describing Petr Mrazek's struggles controlling rebounds, Eliot suggesting that Mrazek reach out, grab the puck, and say "will you be my fried". 

 

I lost it. 

 

I remember that moment. It was great. Eliot looks like Bill Clement compared to Osgood.

So amazing.

 

And yet some people (who may or may not be religiously invested and who may or may not hate science) still think stem cell research is a bad thing.  :glare: 

 

It helps if your subject is Gordie Howe. The man's tougher than a boiled owl.

No way Jose.

 

Mainly because Larkin+ anything is alot to give up (in my opinion) for a guy who's contract is expiring after next year.

 

That's more than I'd be willing to risk.

 

Yeah I know, but you'd be getting two playoff runs with Yandle + Datsyuk + Zetterberg + Kronwall

 

I'm glad I don't have to make these decisions.

Denver isn't nicer than Detroit, it's wealthier than Detroit.  Many places are wealthier than Detroit, but not many places are nicer.  Detroit has better beer, better music, better food, nicer people, more moxie, and most relevant to this discussion...better sports teams.  f*** Denver, and f*** any other place where people confuse having money with having heart. 

 

Exactly. How can you compare a spot at the base of a mountain where some pioneer/settler stopped to take a dump to a city with as much culture and character and history as Detroit?




#2568525 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Two words Frank:   SALARY CAP

 

Nah bro. You're wrong. Holland's lost his drive. Plain and simple. He doesn't give a crap about winning anymore. Not like he used to. That's why he won't trade Larkin or Mantha or Tatar or Jurco or Nyquist. He doesn't have the drive to trade those guys he personally drafted for a rental. He's getting soft.

Posted by rick zombo on 05 February 2015 - 02:21 PM

 

Don't get me wrong, I don't want Holland to make a move just for the sake of making a move. But, at the same time, I'm really, really, really, really, really tired of "We kicked some tires, but the price wasn't right. I talked to every single GM about every single one of his top-four defensemen and in each and every case the asking price was Nyquist + Tatar + Mantha + Larkin + Datsyuk + Zetterberg + Jurco + Kronwall + a first-round pick + my first-born child. So, my hands are tied. But, y'know, we like our team. We think we've got real good depth, some real good young players. A guy like Marchenko, he's been real good for the Griffins, scored a goal the other night."

 

AAAAARRRRGGGHHHHH

 

Except sometimes it seems like you really do.

Some talk of Franson to Detroit right here

 

http://www.sportsnet...r-cody-franson/

 

 

The Red Wings are light on cap space, but they might make the most sense as a potential rental destination for Franson. Of course, the Maple Leafs will be looking to maximize the return on the 6-foot-5 defenceman, so the addition of Franson to an already deep Red Wings team may be little more than wishcasting for Detroit fans.

The Red Wings have a few impressive young players already in the NHL and more coming down the pipeline. Perhaps there’s a deal to be made with multiple parts involved and Franson serving as the centrepiece.

 

Potential trade chips: Tomas Jurco, Dylan Larkin, Xaveir Ouellet, Teemu Pulkkinen, Ryan Sproul

 

I might be OK with Ouellet going to Toronto. But I'd have a hard time swallowing a deal that included any of the other four players listed.

Nope ... Watch hockey central daily , they've mentioned a few times how teams like l.a are interested in Phaneuf (sutter coached him calgary) and with voynov most likely being gone for good it also makes sense

Deals like that are easier to do in the off season ... And as I said before if you really love a player and he's that good you won't just let them go

If we were gonna lose say a Tatar right now we wouldn't trade someone to make room for him? We find a way to keep our best assets

 

The same Hockey Central that insists Babcock is going o Toronto?

 

Again, the Toronto media will invent trade and player movement fantasies just to keep themselves employed and to keep Leaf fans off the ledge.

 

I almost have more faith in Eklund at this point.
