In Topic: Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

31 March 2014 - 11:51 AM

When I was watching the trade deadline coverage on TSN, Bob MacKenzie said as clear as day that the Red Wings felt Jarnkrok wouldn't play for the organization. He wanted big time minutes in the big league, that wasn't going to happen with the Wings so he wanted out.

We traded a player who might be good, but who didn't want to play here. It's that simple no need for all the dramatics.

I read somewhere today that Vancouver wanted nyquist, Tatar, mantha and our 1st in 2014 for Kessler. I don't have the "source" at hand but that was said to be the ask for him.

I was gonna call BS on this, but it's also on the TSN.ca website. How bad is that trade at the draft looking now. No Schneider no Luongo.

How does training avoid Darren Helm's wrist injury?  Or Pavel Datsyuk getting clocked in the jaw? Or Patrick Eaves taking a puck to the face?  I realize people are upset by the injuries and are grasping at straws, but there just isn't any solid evidence that the Wings aren't well trained. Just exactly how do you train to avoid a concussion?  Sure you can play smart to avoid open ice hits, but these aren't Eric Lindros/Scott Stevens type hits.  I think the increased awareness has quite a bit to do with more players missing due to concussions.  

See the word "GROIN" mentioned 1000x above.
