I don't understand your point?  Myers can't be bad because the team's bad?  He's a defensive defenseman who gets lost in coverage.  Who's fault is that if not his?

 

Exactly this. And his cap hit is WAY too high for someone that may never pan out to be a great player. Huge risk acquiring him. Erhoff would be a much safer pick up for this team. Maybe not the best option out there, but if a deal could be made for him and Stewart, I say go for it

:hysterical:
 
On the TSN website, there is a guy commenting on the tradecentre page discussing the latest on Kesler.  I don't have the capability to copy and paste on my work computer but he actually said that Kelser to Detroit makes sencse, send a package of Weiss, Sheahan, Jurco, Tatar and a couple of picks to Vancouver..

That's blasphemy and utter disgust ^ he's surely a nucks fan....
@wings87 I wish Holland seen this thread so many ideas lol I hope your idea works as long as we don't overpay(even acquire him)
We need Andy MacDonald he's a good defensive dman can pk well


I'm sending out positive thoughts out into the universe and hoping they stick.

I'm gonna try some reverse physiology, I'm going to keep saying that Holland won't make a move in the hope that he does.

I keep hearing/reading that Ehrhoff might go for a 1st and a prospect and a young roster defenseman with upside, or any two of those. So, hey, maybe an Ehrhoff-Stewart package isn't totally out of the question for us.


We could definitely swing that. Defensemen don't just fall from trees. Enough is enough gotta get someone while their available 1st+Smith+Pulkinnen these trades write themselves

A much more realistic option than Kesler and Edler really. Would love to see it happen.

I'd like to see this on the PP and 3rd line next year.

Only now they have a legit #1 goalie


Just hoping for major collapses from all the Stanley cup favourites. It will be a Red Wings vs Phoenix final

 
They're 2nd in the league in goals for, that doesn't sound like goal scoring trouble to me.


I'm just upset. Playoffs are a different animal though. They struggled to score in the playoffs

The Blues are going to be an absolute nightmare to play against in the playoffs. Stewart's a pretty big loss, though. Unless they're gonna be jerkoffs and somehow acquire Callahan, in which case the league should fine them for ruining the deadline.

 

Kinda sucks for Stewart and Halak, no?

 

Probably how everyone used to feel about the Red Wings eh?

Wings should go hard for Erhoff

Actually, the really nice thing about Ehrhoff is that he can play an effective shutdown game.


 

I know I'm in the minority on this, but...I wouldn't mind Byfuglien. He could be that offensive defenseman or that scoring forward. At the very least, he'd help our PP. He'd have to come at a reasonable price, of course.

 

I'm on board the Byfuglien train, if he was available. 




#2487738 2/27 GDT : Red Wings 6 at Senators 1, Franzen w/Hat Trick

Posted by Nev on 28 February 2014 - 01:43 AM

Franzen in playoff beast mode already?

 

Don't peak too early now.  

 

To be fair, he's been in playoff beast mode since December.  20 points in his last 18 games I think.

 

Anyway, someone posted this on the Wings FB page

OK, that's what I was wondering. I'd thought that was the case, but it seemed silly to me.By all means then, use the space!


I guess the reasoning behind it is that only half the league makes the playoffs and it wouldn't be fair for the other half to continue to pay players. So that's where the no cap rule comes in, I think.

I read an interesting quote from Royals GM Dayton about the Will Myers trade:

"If you focus on what youre losing, youll never make a deal. Youll be paralyzed. You have to focus on what youre getting in return and thats what we focused on."

I know it's not about Hockey, but I think it fits with the theme and philosophy of the trade deadline or trades in general.

Ryan should call up Burke and ask him to spell intensity for him.  Yandle too.  They could make it a conference call.
