nobody on St. Louis worth Larkin...right now, nobody in the NHL is worth giving up Larkin and his future HOF career. Nobody.

Maybe it was harder to decipher than I thought but, my post had more to do with the idea that any scouts from STL watching our poor play the other night were thinking: "Nope. No thank you." to the idea of swapping out Shattenkirk for any of our players... than my eagerness to trade Larkin for anyone on STL.

Andersson will likely be in the lineup tonight against Buffalo, and Athanasiou is expected to be back in the lineup tonight against Rochester. Maybe they swap them after tonight's games, assuming Andersson clears waivers and is sent to Grand Rapids...


Although it's probably more likely that they're looking to call up a defender with Kronwall out for the next few weeks. Likely Ouellet, but I'd like to see Jensen or Sproul get a look.

No Drouin in the lineup for Syracuse.....

#2649161 Miller Out With Lower Body Injury

Posted by e_prime on 20 January 2016 - 05:19 PM

I'm not really pro or anti re-signing Miller, but if it came down to signing one of either Miller or Helm, I pick Helm every time, even taking into account the difference in salaries. I was really hoping that we would groom Ferraro into a Miller type player, but that's obviously not the case. If we decide to have a 4th line of Miller - Glendening - Helm next season I would be okay with that. As long as Andersson is nowhere near the lineup, Helm is primarily used as a 4th line penalty killer and Jurco is a mainstay in the top 9...

Either way, I hope our PK is able to get back on track while Miller is out and hopefully he has a speedy recovery and can get in some games before the playoffs...

Edit: Posted too quickly / Spelling

I want Callahan and Athanasiou on the club next year. Probably rotating in on the fourth.

No Miller. No Helm. No Andersson.
If we're resigning any of them it's Miller, but honestly I think the injuries are starting to pile up.
Helm is trade bait for the deadline.

Frankly, we have a weakness on D that I would love to be addressed by XO and Marchenko playing full time. I think it'd awesome if we acquired someone like Shattenkirk, but realistically? I doubt it'll happen. 


What I'd like to see happen, is the Wings offload some dead weight, bloated contracts that will handcuff the team in the next couple of years. Mostly, though, I think that it's about time we had a monster deal, or at least something that really got this team excited, and the fans. Similar to what happened when we acquired Hasek. That level of excitement you get thinking about the possibilities and how you just can't wait to watch the next few games. I've missed that.

We should not be trading for any depth players or players with potential, we have tons of both. If we're trading for a player, it needs to be a clear upgrade over what we have now, in some sort of package deal. I'll admit, I haven't seen a ton of Brodin, but I don't believe he would be a clear upgrade over what we have right now, and I certainly wouldn't give up one of our top scorers to get him...

I'm okay to stand pat unless there's an actual "hockey trade" to be made, or if we are able to sell one of our pending UFA's. I don't want to trade for any rental players and I certainly don't want to overpay, giving up any top prospects, unless it's for a big time player.

Its still quite possible Stamkos bolts (see what I did there) in the offseason once he's a free agent.  I mean the guy has liked multiple tweets asking if he should play in Toronto, and apparently did some batting practice with the Jays, too.  At the very least I think its worth his time to see if the Leafs make him a solid offer in June and go from there, because he's clearly interested in playing for them despite how many times he tries to convince us it was his pocket that liked those tweets.


This exactly. Not sure why people are not understanding it. People always bring up the fact that such and such a player is from Michigan, he should come home but when he is from another place then that doesn't apply.


Same people that probably thought Babs for sure was coming back and no chance he was going to Toronto.

Either way I don't want Stamkos especially at the money he's going to get.

Such is the pending UFA gamble!
Do you move said player now when you can get a high(er) return with teams jockeying for a long playoff run?
Do you wait until the draft when season is over and only a smaller bidding war goes on with NO teams looking for that final umph to get to the Cup?
Do you wait until July and risk losing said player for zero, nada, nilch?


...or in the case of Stamkos/Tampa do you keep him for your own, hopefully deep playoff run and sign him after he realizes how good he actually has it with the Lightning?

I think the odds of Stamkos even getting traded are steadily dropping now that Tampa is comfortably in a playoff spot. Not to mention they went to the finals last year with essentially the same roster, so they gotta like their chances in the playoffs. It's tough to move the biggest piece of that team in that scenario.

about 110% of us are going to s*** ourselves when/if this happens!

I will s*** myself twice I we land Stamkos. That's like 200%!

For what its worth Eklund still feels like we're a team to "keep an eye on" as far as Stamkos is considered.  With how laid back Kenny has been in recent years, I'd be kind of surprised to see him pull the trigger on something like a Stamkos deal.  He likes to play things safe and trading young talent for even a bonafide goal scorer like Stamkos is too risky for him.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but the only big deal he made since the cap was put in place was the Hossa signing and that was just for one year.  Aside from that signing, he's basically just locked up our own players and picked up a few vets at discount prices.  I really WANT it to happen, but I just don't see it happening based on Holland recent history and that's unfortunate because Stamkos could very well be the difference between just making the playoffs and being a perennial Cup contender.
