#2491223 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by Dabura on 05 March 2014 - 06:55 PM

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.

#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.

I oppose to trading helm don't get me wrong, the only con I see is the last 2 seasons he's been hurt and hasn't done too much for us... I agree with most that say he's a top 3rd line center in the league... I mentioned this earlier but I don't really follow on many wing prospects in minors and/college/overseas.... I certainly agree with your post how us crawling into playoffs it seems we alrdy starting, I don't think we should rush our stars back from injury until everything is healed and 100% w.out high risk of reinjury.... As for the kings 8th seed, our team Is nothing like that team, quick was outstanding, unfortunately it seems Howard might be having his worst season(injuries and weak goals).. Also those Kings were way gritter and tougher than we are... I seen andersson a lot in playoffs last year and I like what I seen, glendening seemed a bit small and unexp but he's 24.... I hope everyone will be healthy by the time playoffs come Dustin Penner to Washington!!

 

Just to be clear, I'm not really arguing with you. It occurred to me that my last few posts could be read that way, but that's not it. If anything, I'm just rambling, maybe taking sides for the sake of taking sides. Nothing personal!

 

I get snippy about the Kings because I'm tired of everyone and his or her mother pointing to them as this Cinderella rags-to-riches underdog success story. Like you said, they were a contender. BUT - and it further pisses me off that people tend to gloss over this fact - they had their issues, and instead of saying, "Well, whatever. We like our team. You get into the playoffs and anything can happen," they made some very big, very ballsy moves. They weren't complacent. They weren't in love with themselves. They weren't afraid to hurt some feelings. And it paid off. And it continues to pay off.

 

We're not in the same boat that those Kings were in. We are NOT a contender. But there is, I think, a lesson in there that is worth considering.

Helm is a career bottom sixer, probs doesn't have much value

 

I see what you did there. (I think?)

I guess that's a good point too, I suppose it would really depend on what we ship out... I don't know enough about kesler to say anything about his character but I seen some comments on his divaness, we certainly don't need any cancer in the locker room

 

No offense to you, but I grow really weary of the questions about [insert player who isn't a Red Wing]'s character. Some people here were s***ting all over Tatar when he kinda sorta maybe threatened to bolt to the KHL because Cleary took his spot at the last minute. Now he's Untouchable, a Phenomenal Team Guy, etc. Fedorov wasn't exactly the greatest Team Guy in history, and was most definitely a Diva. Kronwall's widely regarded as one of the dirtiest, most gutless players in the league. (Actually, there's some history between Kronwall and Kesler.) Bertuzzi almost murdered a guy in cold blood.

 

We could use a really good center. Kesler is a really good center who we might have a shot at getting. He might be the difference between the playoffs and early tee times. I don't really care if he's a prick. Maybe he becomes a better Team Guy as a Red Wing. (Wouldn't be the first time that's happened with a player.)
