#2470271 Another 'Would You Make This Trade?' Thread

Posted by Dabura on 02 January 2014 - 06:44 PM

Jimmy has a NMC through next season.

 

Seriously?

 

Is there a single player on this roster who doesn't have a no-movement/trade clause?

 

...something Holland has been unable to do since July.  He'd have to get Buffalo to take on guys like Quincey and Samuelsson.

 

I like to think he hasn't really been trying.

Hi. So, a friend of mine just dropped an interesting trade scenario on me.

 

In this scenario, Ryan Miller is getting moved this season and the Sabres are getting a massive return for him. And, to help them fill the void in net (because we're charitable like that), we're giving them Jimmy Howard, plus an additional piece or two. In exchange, we get Ott, Moulson, and Ehrhoff, and maybe a useless gentleman's agreement that the first two will re-sign in the summer.

 

Is this insane, or does it actually make some sense? I can't decide.

I can see Tatar scoring in the third and then using Chelli's celebration.

 

He's been great. I like him because he's very high-end, but he plays with the tenacity of a grinder/checker/energy guy/agitator.

Female hockey players. Mmmmmm...

 

/sexist


I have a bad feeling about this final 20. We really need these two points.

Out-shoot them, out-chance them, out-muscle them, out-compete them, flat-out out-play them...and we go into the third tied, because we can't convert on our chances, and the opposing goalie is playing out of his mind.

 

Red Wings Hockey!

Whats the deal with Darren Helm? Does anybody know if he's just sitting this one out because of his groin and the cold. Or is he hurt AGAIN?

 

Helm should just retire. At the rate he's going, he'll be dead by age 30.

Really though, we gotta be happy with that period, spent a lot of time in the Leafs zone, had some good chances, shame they fell to Miller and Cleary.....

 

But how in the hell is that not 5 and a game misconduct for Lupul?

 

Suspension-worthy. Blatant headshot.

 

So, wait, the Leafs acquired Tim Gleason?

Domi is still a POS. :lol:


We will never win a Cup with Osgood in net.

So... you would have preferred that the team just suck it up on all fronts?  It is worse that they were actually capable of generating offense, albeit in a losing effort due to terrible goal tending... that's worse than it would have been if they had gotten shut out 5-0 or 6-0?  I do not agree or I misunderstand your point of view.  Please explain.

 

I think I get where he's coming from. It's the sheer facepalmness of it all. We're down 3-1, looks like it's going to be twelve games before we score another goal. "Man," we think, "if only we could score three goals in this here third period. Wouldn't that be something?" Dats gets us off to a great start, our offense comes alive in the third period...and we lose, 6-4. *palmface*

Damn, I wish Jimmy could figure out what is vexing him and get back on track.

 

Mo Money Mo Problems.

we never adequately replaced the losses of Lidstrom, Rafalski, and Stuart

 

Hey, someone actually agrees with me on this point.

How are you supposed to win hockey games when you have a defense group who constantly turns the puck over and can't retrieve it? And a goaltender who can't make af****** save when the team needs it.

 

And a forward corps that can't score.
