#2488004 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by joesuffP on 28 February 2014 - 07:35 PM

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

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.

That's what bums me out most: They quit.


What did I miss, where was Dustin Brown the 2nd half of the game? Did Bylsma basically go with two lines?
How did he go from TJ Sochi to TJ Nochie so fast?

Edit: Kane is an emotional weakling.

 

His only highlight.

Hmmm, a team build by Brian Burke underperforming.  Where have we seen that before?

One for my dad. I am so glad I could be a part of Slovak Olympic team. It was a great experience and I have many great memories from Sochi. We didn’t have our best tournament and we are all disappointed as we expected more. Once you are on the top and once you are on the bottom. It is a sport. I am in Detroit already and I am enjoying my couple days off and getting ready to finish the season well. The upcoming schedule looks scary and it is going to be difficult as we have many games in a short period of time and our key players are injured. It is going to be hard without Henrik (40) but I believe I can do it. It would not be good if the Red Wings didn’t get in the playoffs. Keep your fingers crossed, I believe we can do it. Thank you for standing next to us and cheering for us even though it wasn’t ideal at the Olympics.

This is all Quincey's fault.

 

Sammy needs to share some blame as well.

No Captain America, but not bad given the time I was willing to put into it.

I've watched every game alone in my dorm room because nobody else cares enough to wake up at 7:30 to watch a sport they know nothing about.. people on my floor were watching figure skating yesterday during the noon game.
On the news here in Columbus, the anchor said he didn't know who to cheer for in the USA-Russia game because bobrovski was in net for Russia.
I'm surrounded by idiots
LGW is my friend
