#2264244 Post-TDT: Red Wings stand pat, no additions

Posted by HenryMalredo on 27 February 2012 - 06:11 PM

So is LIds gonna play forever? No... Stuart already sais he is having home-sick issues. So that being said, if they don't win it now, it won't happen for a long time from now because Holland is not gonna pay Parise or Suter so they will get worse anyhow. Besides the longer Holland keeps re-signing the same old guys, they will get worse in that regard...Thanks for wearing the Rose Colored Glasses.


Who dealt at the deadline would've made the Wings significantly better and able to "win it now" as you say? Jeff Carter was the ONLY top six forward dealt leading up to the trade deadline. Yeah, it might of been nice if the Wings could've added some more forward depth, but there the Wings would've had to overpay for marginal players. Did you really want to see the Wings trade an elite prospect so the Wings would've beat Nashville to have Paul Gausted playing in the bottom six for a few months? The Wings improved their defense with Quincey and other teams made depth improvements too, but not a single contender made deal thats could make them significantly better, that would counteract running into a hot team, a lucky team, or a team that is just plain playing better.


#2017548 NHL Rejects Kovalchuk's Contract

Wasn't a huge fan of this deal, but It bothers me that the league is invalidating this deal by a subjective standard and has not made clear what they see this standard as. Of course the deal violates the so-called "spirit" of the cap, but I don't see how you could say it does so anymore than any of the other deals. If the NHL has a problem with these deals, it should wait for the next cba.


#2001807 Nathan Horton

Posted by HenryMalredo on 20 June 2010 - 06:12 PM

Horton has put up more then 60 points twice and 57 points once. Franzen had 59, 38 and 30 for his top scoring with better linemates. Horton on a bad team has put up high points consistently since he was a rookie.


Franzen's a proven playoff performer. He also has only got top-line playing time in the last in recent years and his points total are low last year because of injury. You can say Horton plays with inferior players and that's certainly true, but he's also had more opportunities for top-line minutes but hasn't produced at a top-line level.
