#2577780 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by amato on 02 March 2015 - 07:00 PM

Would like to see them rest Quincey a few games and roll with....

Kronner-Smith
DD-Zid
Ericsson-Marchenko

Gives Smith a little more responsibility; hopefully he runs with it.

DD-Zid I have a feeling would be a great pairing.

And Ericsson on the bottom pairing gives Marchenko more of a veteran presence.


I think it's at least worth a try like that. If Quincey needs some more rest anyway.

Just had another thought.  One of those trades was with Yzerman and the other was with Jim Nill.  Maybe it's just a coincidence, but they are Holland's proteges.  

dont jinx us....you know who runs the leafs...dont you?

:scared:

Three years in a row now he's made a deal. Quincey, Legwand, Cole.

Or was Q a year before that?

I was surprised by this, as I thought Dallas would resign him since he had good chemistry with Spezza. I liked Janmark as a prospect, but I think he is a C+/B- level prospect with upside. Backman, as others have said, likely burned his bridges and isn't much of a loss as he wasn't going to make the big show in Detroit. I think it was a fair trade with a big early advantage for the Wings if he stays healthy. I also agree with the Dallas Drake analogy. Kenny has done well with this one.

Holland is the king of the deadline band-aid. Just grab some old broken down players and say you improved the team for the playoffs. 

 

Can't wait to see Babs passive aggressively tossing Cole on the 4th line to rot away.

 

GET US A DMAN WORTH A DAMN.

 

18 goals, hits a ton, brings much needed size and physicality qualifies as broken down? It's not like Cole is this 36-year-old slug that can't skate either. Cole does improve the Red Wings for the playoffs -- that isn't just organizational lip service.

Yeah bring a guy in who has scored 18 goals and has speed for a 36 yr old is terrible... give me a break... Erik Cole is a really good pick up

I think there's a chance. We'll be in on Petry till the price goes to high, I think we'll be in on Zidlicky too, and if Toronto will take money back probably Dino as well. There's definitely reason to watch tomorrow to see if Kenny goes for it. 


Zidlicky I like, Petry I'm just not big on. I also think there will be some new names we haven't heard about yet, traded tomorrow.

Hope he sounds more excited when we interview him  :confused:

I'm sure he's kind of bewildered in a way and once it sets in he'll feel fantastic he was traded to the greatest sports organization in the world  :w00t:

I don't want anymore additions to this team unless we lose guys like weiss andersen miller kindl off our lineups

Dread to think what we'd give up next for some one who's not a 36 yr old ufa

Doesn't mean everything Kenny does is gold

 

Cole is a big north-south guy who is physical as hell and has 18G. He’s not just some 36 yr old scrub.

So do some of you guys even want to win or what? Kenny gave up 2 prospects who likely were never going to see time in the winged wheel. Cole is 36, have you seen him play? He's not Bertuzzi. He can still skate as well as he ever did, and plays a physical power game.


Completely agree. We can't make trades without giving anyone up, it just doesn't work that way.

I just hope this doesn't turn into another Jarnkrok trade, where these guys are mentioned in every thread. Cole is still a good player and will create lots of space for Pav to maneuver. I call this trade a winner, no matter what happens going forward.

Pierre LeBrun @Real_ESPNLeBrun 2m2 minutes ago

Erik Cole traded to Detroit, pending trade call

 

I like it Kenny! Hopefully it wasn't for too much

 

Edit: Complete deal is Cole and a conditional 2015 3rd-round pick (Dallas keeps pick if Detroit reaches ECF and Cole plays in 50% of games), for (D) Mattias Backman, © Mattias Jamark and a 2015 2nd-round pick.

Only one piece of advise...

 

Keep your head on a swivel.  That's what you gotta do when you find yourself in a vicious cockfight!

Congrats!! Bring extra batteries to take pictures of the cathedral that is Joe Louis Arena. After the game I think you should make the same choice we've all made at some point, American or Lafayette Coney Island. The Post Bar is cool and some players go there after games. I saw Chris Pronger, and assorted St. Louis Blues there long ago and got to try on Jason Williams 2002 cup ring. Maltby and Draper used to hang there long ago. 

 

Oh, and if you go to Windsor Ontario you'll want to know the answers to certain questions.

 

What is your business in Canada? The correct answer is not "To fund the revolution."

 

Do you have any weapons? The correct answer is not "Sure, what do you need?"
