#2245980 Top teams are looking to deal

Posted by LeftWinger on 16 January 2012 - 11:35 AM

Well, considering the teams you named that are willing to give up a 1st rounder, it would seem if Holland was willing to give up a 1st rounder that he would get the better in return since it will more than likely be a higher pick than Boston or Chicago or Vancouver or maybe even St. Louis. I would hope that the Wings finish higher, but it really doesn't matter, because if you are gonna win the Cup, you are gonna have to learn to win on the road anyhow.

Regarding making a move, I really hope Holland takes that huge jump and gets a top line player. Who that may be, I am not sure, but the names that have been surfacing would all help more than us losing a Hudler or Franzen would hurt. Perry, Ryan, Iginla, Doan, Parise, etc... I would love to see a huge move at the deadline, but would also be OK with a Hemsky or Moen and maybe an actual NHL defender coming here. I like Commodore, and I can stand Kindl a little, but they are both 7th d-men. IF Holland could score a veteran defender rental for a solid Cup run (Hal Gill type) I think we would be sitting pretty! Oh and all respect to Conklin, but if Holland can land Nabokov for the Cup run then I am all for it!

If this team acquired Hemsky for a top 6 forward, Moen & Gill to shore up the bottom 6 and defense and of course Nabby to solidify the goaltender position. Then if it doesn't work, go for a revamp come July 1st which is on my wish list, a #1 defender to replace Lidstrom (eventually) and TWO legit top snipers...who or from where? Don't know.

EDIT: :lol: DOn't get what part of this deserves a neg...as usually people won't explain or debate why they disagree.

Another thing that could have the Wings on the inside track is his former coach Jeff Blashill is our asst. coach. Be nice to see another local kid get a shot at playing for his favorite team as he grew up.

That joke's getting pretty stale, buddy.

Besides, the reference wasn't that far fetched in this case.

Ya, considering it's the truth, it isn't really that far fetched is it? He text me and asked if my phone got youtube, then he said he watched the Notre Dame/Western game with her and sent me the link to the video above. He also said that she told him that Yzerman has said to him tthat he will see NHL time this year if he signs with the Lightning, which could tempt him to go there since he won't pay in Detroit until he is about 25. Also, when he appeared to score a goal last night and she better my buddy that he did, he told her that it was deflected, so she called Dan after the game and he confirmed that yes it was a teammate who got credit for the goal...

You know, there are some people that know some other people crymson. I happen to work with Manny Legace's father-in-law so I suppose your uncle date's Manny's aunt then, eh? BTW, when his father-in-law gets tickets to a Wings game, we get card blanche. We get to park with the players, enter in their entrance, get to go into the Olympia Club and by the lockerroom. When Manny was with Carolina, and they played in Detroit we get to go down to the visitor's lockerroom a see Manny after the game. Can't go before the game because all day before the game starts, he doesn't talk to anyone, not even his wife and kids. And ya, that is something I learned from Manny himself.

So Crymson, get off your horse.

also, my buddy is dating Dan's sister and told me that she said that the Wings are frontrunners and are close to a deal. Also the Lightning is a high possibility with Yzerman being on of his favorite players as a kid...

...sorry if this was already discussed.

I don't trust Huds to connect on that pass, plus I think he's got too short a reach on that puck's location from where Mule was standing.

I know...I am just fueling the fire. I make fun of Franzen all the time so I have to talk crap about him. It was a good pay for both him and Pavs...

You are wearing the a-hole glasses. Imagine that.

So you are calling me an a-hole just because I don't like a certain player? Wow, I think we know who the real a-hole is....Judge not, lest ye be judged yourself. What's next, to proverbial "go be a fan of the Penguins" line? Dude you can do whatever it is you do while thinking about your favorite player, but just because it's not everyone's favorite player doesn't mean you can start throwing insults around...

It was a nice goal, but he is still FAR from the "Most clutch player in the NHL."

In terms of the timing and the positioning read by Franzen I'm thinking that Z could've replicated it and maybe Filppula.

This! He was in the right place at the right time of an impossibly "CLUTCH" play by Datsyuk. All Franzen had to do was keep his stick on the ice...nice goal, but the play was all Pavs.

You sound hella mad.

Not mad, just a realist. Sorry, you should know by now I do not wear the rose glasses. Franzen could score 1000 goals. He is still my least favorite player, next to little Piddler...

god im just finishing cleaning all the jizz off my computer screen! i literally exploded when I saw the forsberg.

Uh...... :blink:

Haha, that was the best part about it; when Smith just lay there afterward and you could just SEE him kicking himself mentally.

Eh, do you really want Gill at this point? Guys is about two time zones past his prime by now...

For a playoff run...yes. Just a rental. He'd be more valuable in the playoffs than Kindl...

Posted by LeftWinger on 12 January 2012 - 10:34 PM

True. Not as clutch as Pav was tonight though.

This! Pav and Filppula are the most clutch guys on this team....hands down...

Kostitsyn, Moen, possibly Gill.

I will take Moen and Gill for Andersson and Kindl.... (I dont think Montreal would though!) Do we have any French Canadiens we can offer them?

Wow that was orgasmic

Easy whiskey...have you even seen any of the Stanley Cup wins? If you become orgasmic that easy, I'd say you should see a doctor about that problem...

Man that Franzen guy is so clutch, eh?


Anyone could've had their stick on the ice. Franzen did nothing but redirect a unbelievable pass by Datsyuk. I gave him as much credit as I am going to when he scored by being in the right place at the right time. Datsyuk was more clutch by making that impossible pass, but good on him...if he were as clutch as you want him to be, he would've got one of the stars, in which he didn't. Plus he is still not an all star...I give him credit for stumbling into position and having his stick on the ice...

EDIT: It's true...Even Hudler could've stuck his stick on the ice...I am rescinding my credit to Franzen because of all the slappies here...

Travis Moen to Detroit....PLEASE!

Ok ok, clutch goal, but Datsyuk made the play. I would say it was a clutch stick on the ice more than anything. Even kory kocur would've scored on that pass....clutch redirect!

What the hell? One of our guys does that and it's a penalty, easy.

That would require one of our guys to hit.

Holmstrom collided with Aucoin, who went down rather easily, and was called for interference. Shane Doan bulldozed Helm and got nothing.

OH, ok. The joke was,Detroit would have to hit in order to get called. But you called it, detroit collides, accidentally, they don't hit...

I am gonna write a song where the only words are "Hey Hey Me-o My-o"
