#2491445 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by Dabura on 05 March 2014 - 10:26 PM

Jarnkrok is no Pulkkinen?

 

This whole thing is so bizarro world. Yesterday Jarnkrok was The Future, today he maybe let it slip one night when he was drunk that he misses Sweden and also he was never good and never gonna be any good and we have Andersson and also he's too small and also we should never trade any of our top prospects but if we do then it's good because prospects are just prospects and we can't sell our future for a rental so a pick and a prospect was way too much for Vanek but a 3rd/2nd and arguably our best prospect for Legwand was a must and hopefully Legwand isn't just a rental and he forces Sheahan back down to Grand Rapids for another two years because in the salary cap era it's all about drafting well and developing your prospects and building from within and we like our team except we don't except we do and also Datsyuk is out for three weeks and Zetterberg is out for the rest of the regular season and Weiss may never play again and Helm has a really bad headache and we're going to re-sign Quincey for 3 years because he's the absolute best we can do for a #4 defenseman.

 

I hate today. I hate this season. I hate that our players are faking injuries because they can. I hate that Space Mountain is a wooden rollercoaster. Last I checked, there's no wood in space.

If Legwand re-signs for another couple seasons then it will be a very fair price.

 

However if this is a rental and we only get him for around 20 games then it will be a joke.

 

Thing is, where does Legwand slot into a healthy lineup? Datsyuk, Weiss, Helm, Sheahan, Andersson, Glendening...

Look, I'm happy that we got Legwand. But, IMHO, this whole thing with Jarnkrok smells...

Regarding Jarnkrok reportedly thinking of heading back to Sweden after this season, it was news to Wings Asst GM Ryan Martin.

 

Jarnkrok projects as a top-six center, and a good one. He's struggled, but hey, first-year NA pros are allowed to struggle. Andersson isn't going to be a top-six center, Sheahan will probably settle in as a good third-line center, and Helm is a third-line center. None of the centers in Grand Rapids project as top-sixers. Speaking of Sheahan, remember when he was supposed to be a career fourth-liner in the NHL? Remember when the DUI incident made us really wonder if he'd pan out? Remember when Tatar threatened to bolt for the KHL?

 

meh

I'm not gonna argue about Vanek. The fact is (again, assuming I'm not missing anything), 28 GMs missed the eff out, and Holland was one of them. Anyone who says "Yeah, but you have to understand"--no, there's nothing to understand. Marc "Moron" Bergevin got Thomas Vanek for a pick and a prospect.

 

It's the Devil's way now.

The Isles had a very, very weak position. Everyone knew that not trading Vanek would be a disaster for them. That impacts prices.

 

I guess the big thing I'm getting at is the fact that we bowed out of the Vanek sweepstakes pretty early because whOaMG 2 much 4 a rental gtfo kthxbai! ...and then he goes for cheap. And you're saying everyone knew the Isles were going to be bent over and spanked and he would go for cheap. So, we bowed out early because the price was too high for a rental, but we knew the price wasn't going to be high because the Isles had a very, very weak position.

 

Surely I'm missing something here.

Am I missing something or did we in fact pay more for David Legwand (a rental) than the Habs paid for Thomas Vanek?

You have a sick sense of humour. Is trade deadline day a joke to you? You can leave now.

 

Sixth sense of humor.

 

And I can't leave. The Island won't let me.

Is it me or is the MSL/Callahan swap kind of hilarious?

And they re-signed Cleary, and signed Alfredsson and Weiss. Either let the kids come up or trade em. But MAKE A CHOICE for the direction of the team!

 

Hey now, Alfie was a great add.

For Red Wing fans it's like being a Jewish kid at Christmas...

 

I think we're more like Charlie Brown and the football.

Im starting to think Ken Holland doesn't actually exist.




#2489226 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Dabura on 04 March 2014 - 03:20 PM

We're gonna stand pat and then Kronwall is gonna slip on a puck and break his arms. Then we're gonna wish we hadn't stood pat. Then we're gonna re-sign Quincey.

Smid yes, Visnovsky no. Too old.

 

Your face is too old. At the right price, Visnovsky would be a good add.
