#2489233 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by rick zombo on 04 March 2014 - 03:30 PM

What does that have to do with anything? My point is the Wings have been following a recipe of mediocrity the last few seasons which leave them in the worst possible spot a team can be in: Too good for a high pick, too bad to be an actual contender. 

 

Not to stray too much from the topic at hand.

 

The mediocre Flames you speak of traded a lot of picks and prospects away trying to become contenders. Holland's not doing that. Which is good. Also, the Flames drafting has been s***tier than Taco Bell. Compare the Flames to St Louis. Very similar arcs, but drastically different results.

 

Also, unless you want Holland to trade away Datsyuk, Z, Kronwall, and Howard and go into full-blown rebuild, do you really think trading Helm is going to turn us into Chicago or LA in 5 years?

Not if the Wings become the mid-late 2000s Flames and attendance drops. 

 

That's not happening. And you know why? The mid-late 2000s Flames were never the 1996-2009 Red Wings.

If holland wants to wait for Ouellette and Sproul to fix this Defense I guess Datsyuk isn't going to win another cup as a red wing. This time in 3 years we'll be trading him to the pens

 

Well, without having to worry about another cup, Pavel can focus squarely on the 2018 Olympics :ph34r:

Looks like less of a chance that Edler moves, which is not surprising. Although this is just a rumor.

 

http://mynhltraderum...das-and-gionta/

 

David Pagnotta: The Canucks have been telling some teams that Alex Edler is no longer available to them. Teams are still poking around. It would take a big offer to get him. Edler has a no-trade clause. Pagnotta doesn’t know if a list has been submitted. Some of the teams there were told he is not available was due to the lack assets that, that organization has.

 




#2489082 Canadians may be shopping Subban...

Posted by rick zombo on 04 March 2014 - 12:02 PM

Don't get me wrong, Subban is awesome.  But we don't need a #1 d-man, we've got one.  We need a #3-4 d-man to play with Dekeyser and that ain't Subban.  I'll take Erhoff and keep the assets personally.

 

+ Montreal would never trade Subban to Detroit.

Shero is a crazed lunatic. The Penguins time is now (now being the next few years).

 

No way Kenny outbids him.

 

Edit: If Holland were smart though, he'd keep negotiating for Kesler just to drive up Gillis' asking price with Shero. Bleed that friggin' Pens organization as much as possible.

I’d like to see Babcock grab Walrus by the 'stash and gimp-slap the fat off him.

Let us not forget Holland DID acquire Dominik Hasek via trade.

 

to BUF: Vyacheslav Kozlov, 2002 1st round pick.

 

to DET: Dominik Hasek, 2002 Stanley Cup

 

...Holland had some balls back then (especially since it meant he had to waive fan favorite Chris Osgood) so maybe he can find them again and make that deal for a top line defender... I sure wish Nashville wanted to get rid of Weber's contract...

 

It has nothing to do with balls: then vs now

 

That trade was easy for Holland. 1st rounders meant nothing to Detroit in the pre-cap era. In fact, Buffalo basically gave Hasek to the Wings. Plus the Wings were elite. Contenders year in and year out.So when a team like Buffalo does the classy thing and gives Hasek a chane to win, he goes to either Detroit, Colorado, Jersey. Those other teams had Roy and Broduer. So......

 

Holland is way more reluctant to part with draft picks or prospects of any kind these days. Why? Because he has lost his balls? Or because they are far more valuable now than they were back then?

No offense to Babcock, but this team had Ken Hitchcock's fingerprints all over it.


I'm glad this thread was unlocked so I'd have a chance to say that this is one of the dumbest things I have heard from a LGWer in a while, and that's saying something.

The two coaches have very similar styles.

Alright I'm back from the bar and ready to take it like a man.  Congratulations Team Canada...you played the better game.  Good tourney Team USA, it was fun.  Now, I'm going to set it up for the Team Canada fans to spike.

 

That win was so sweet...(fill in the blank)

 

100% class Kip. :clap:

 

It would be nice to see (without naming names) some other LGWers who talked way more trash than you, follow suit.

you're spelling of *your* makes you look like a..  what?

:confused:
 


Right. Never any grammar issues with YOUR posts eh? And heaven forbid autocorrect gets in the way.

Also, way to avoid addressing my claims that you are an over zealous fantasy GM that has no idea about how to run a hockey team in this dimension. Who are you to call Babcock a nit-wit?

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to see which of my old He-Man action figures would make the best line combos for the upcoming fantasy toy Olympics.

Just wanted to drop in a wish good luck to the fanboys of both teams. Should be a doozy.

Also. Blueadam's: you're hatred of Babcock makes you look like an idiot.

That is all.
