#2649001 2016 Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by Bannedforlife on 19 January 2016 - 05:04 PM

So, you're saying that Sproul has equal value as Kindl? Helm is the almighty top 6 piano puller, why wouldn't he have value to someone, plus, WPG is closer to HOME for him, they may want him there.  Maybe they'd like what Helm brings compared to Ladd. It doesn't matter. It wasn't K/E for Byf. like you "boomed" it was. 
Listen, you were caught with your hand in the cookie jar with no cookies to be had, stop trying to make something up just to save grace....nobody PARADES around the forum's pretending to be a ROSTOR MANAGMENT GURU. I have been arouond a long time and have no problem taking critisism, negative or positive. But make it have some substance, don't laugh at an E/K proposal as a LOL proposal, when there was never a proposal to begin with. Then when you are proven to just be trolling around, you take another proposal (that may or may not be a fair one) and say "well, I meant this is just as bad...you know nothing..." Comment on WHAT I WROTE and I have no problem with it, make s*** up and then there's issues...next you'll be saying I never put Jensen on any roster proposals! :ninja:  Just drop it, get back to topic and comment on things that are said in text. Stop trying to bait users...

So you admit that you think Ericsson, Helm, Sproul and a 3rd is a plausible offer for Byfuglien and Ladd? Interesting. I wonder how that converstaion would go?...

Holland: Hey Chevy, this is Ken over in Detroit. You got a sec?

Cheveldayoff: Sure Ken, whats up?

Holland: I heard you might be shopping Buff, wanted to see if we could work something out.

Cheveldayoff: OK, whatdaya got?

Holland: Well, I thought Ericsson would be a good fit for you. He's pretty much exactly like Big Buff, except he isn't quite as big. Or tough. In fact, he doesn't really intimidate anyone cause he doesn't fight much. And he isn't known for thowing big hits. And even though he's only about average defensively, at best, he is projected to have the best offensive year of his career.

Cheveldayoff: Oh really, what's his career best?

Holland: 15 points!

Cheveldayoff: ...

Holland: But just like Byfuglien, he used to be a foward. Except he wasn't very good at it. Oh, and he's signed for about 2 million dollars too much. But don't worry, his contract is up in only 4 more years! Plus I'll throw in Sproul to sweeten the pot! We were really high on him when we drafted him, although he has been somewhat underwhelming since... But he does have 1 NHL game under his belt!

Cheveldayoff: Wow, sounds great Ken... Should we throw the captain of our team into the deal?

Holland: Well, since you mentioned it...

Nevermind Lefty, I can totally see this deal happening. And for the record, you absolutely have thrown Ericsson/Kindl out there in the last week, I just don't have the time to sort through all your bat-s*** crazy posts to find it.

Also, ending every post by calling me a troll and other condescending nonsense doesn't mean you're taking the high road. It means that you want to appear to be the bigger man while simultaneously getting the last word in. Just an FYI

I liked our 2008 team because we had speed/ skill guys like Dats, Z, Hudler, Filpula, Helm  but also had grit players like Chelios, Stuart, Downey, Maltby, McCarty, Samuelsson, (wow we had a lot of gritty guys back then) 


The balance works. I'm all for Okposo if there was a guarantee he would sign. Okposo has good size for a winger imo. 


I agree with your post, but Samuelsson was not gritty.

Get rid of Errorson. Problem solved.


Errorson for Ovechkin.

#2646479 Wings Need on D and Glaring Inconsistencies

Posted by frankgrimes on 07 January 2016 - 12:05 PM

Personally I'm glad GMs aren't listening to fans because we all have different opinions on what should have been done and now. But we aren't the ones knowing all the ins and outs of the job nor is our job on the line if we mess up.

that being said I'm still amazed how much KH has changed his approach , as Wings we received the players we wanted back in the good old days but now it seems like Holland is afraid of blockbusters and for whatever reason ignoring the need for more size and gritty type of game from the bottom 6, third pairing

#2645757 Bravo, Smitty

Posted by Bill Berzeench on 02 January 2016 - 04:18 PM

Brendan now has 7 pts in his last 8 games. He's a +4 on the year, and is on pace for 20-25 pts. Still not the guy we all want him to be, but I think he's only 1 step away now, whereas he has been 3 to 4 steps away for most of his first 3 years. I really want to see him round into a true legit 2A. If he can fill the 3 spot for us for the next 10 years, that would be very beneficial. DeKeyser should progress to a nice 1B, and Marchenko looks like he can progress to a true 2B. Ouellet and Russo can round out our 3A and 3B pairing. Kronwall, Ericsson, Quincey, Kindl, and Green should be let go or traded as quickly as possible.

__________ - DeKeyser
Smith - Marchenko
Ouellet - Russo

That 1A spot is difficult to fill, but we arent Going anywhere without a Duncan Keith or a Drew Doughty. Holland needs to be fired. Not landing Suter absolutely crushed this team. And yah, it's Holland's fault. I wont be convinced that Suter and Parise wouldn't have changed Their mind if our offer was 11 mil per season. How can we afford 22 mil per year for those guys? Howard, Ericsson, Green, Weiss, Tootoo, Kindl. There's 25 million per on a backup goalie, 3 defenseman we dont need, and 2 players we had to buy out. Holland has the money. He just has no clue how to use it.

Green, Kronwall, Quincey, Ericssson, Kindl. Losing those 5 clears up 22 million. Trading Howard clears up another 3 mil if we eat 2 mil Per year. That's 25 million. Come on. We need a fricking good GM more than anything else. Holland is junk.

Questionable 3 on 3 OT line decisions tonight.

I blame Blashill because -


It's a 3 on 3


And you have Nyquist , Tatar and Smith out at the same time.


You have an offensive minded defenseman who is terrible defensively. You have 2 guys that are mediocre at backchecking.


Well played.

Jimmy Howard was stellar tonight, he deserved better.

This was last night.  Thanks Babcock.   :glare:


#2638907 Ferraro on waivers

Posted by WingsallTheway on 22 November 2015 - 07:12 PM

He improved quite a bit I thought this year... Much more energy and faster. He was a solid 4th line, definitely should have been Andersson or Jurco instead of him.


I can get on board with Andersson on waivers but Jurco? Come on, that would be such a horrible management move, we could at least get a decent return for him in a trade.


ESPECIALLY Ferarro over Jurco?  :scared:


4th liners are a dime a dozen, we have 8 guys in the AHL who can come and replace him. 


note: I am not a Jurco supporter

#2639973 Marchenko

Posted by krsmith17 on 28 November 2015 - 06:10 PM

I didn't say he "can't" become a top 4, I said I wouldn't lable him as a future top 4. I hope he surpasses my expectations and becomes a 3/4, but I think he's more likely to be a 5/6 defenseman.

#2639969 Marchenko

Posted by krsmith17 on 28 November 2015 - 04:17 PM

I like Marchenko and he's played great so far but I wouldn't say he has "a lot of upside", and I certainly wouldn't lable him as a future top 4. He's very smart with and without the puck, which is great to see from a young guy, with just 30 games played in the NHL. But I personally don't see him becoming anything more than a reliable bottom pairing shutdown defensman. I do agree though, he is more than earning his spot in the lineup. Will be interesting to see who gets scratched for tomorrow's game with Kindl coming back in.

Holland > Nill > Yzerman



In terms of career accomplishments as GM.  Not based on the present, or even the recent past.

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 15 November 2015 - 05:50 PM

Babcock couldn't get this team to play either. Blash is obviously not close to Babcock's ability as a coach. This team unmotivated. I do say some of this has to do with coaching. Blash is not ready.


I disagree.  This team needs to figure it out or some trades need to take place.

I'm seeing shades of a David Clarkson type signing here with Abs.
