#2577818 Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by krsmith17 on Today, 09:57 PM

Really Kip? I had no idea... Thanks for the heads up on that one...


Jurco is better suited on a scoring line than Abdelkader in my opinion... Let me guess, my opinion is wrong though, because... stats...

Also, you give me s*** for putting Abdelkader on the 4th line but you put Smith in the press box?... L O L !

Have you ever said anything nice about the Wings? lol... I have a feeling you would rip Santa if you could ha


I haven't been a member here for almost 10 years just to troll. I have just completely become jaded on Holland's management abilities.


The last trade he made that worked was Brad Stuart in 08.

Although a die hard Wings fan, I want to start out by saying I live in Toronto, attend at least 5 leaf games a year, had a close friend play a brief stint with the leafs and my family and friends are all typical leafs fans. All in all, my exposure to the Toronto Maple Leafs is about as strong as it gets considering they are not my favourite team.


Dion Phaneuf is not as bad as the media suggests. Believe me.


I'm sure there are many people here who have played at a high level and understand that statistics do not tell the whole story... His numbers aren't great, He certainly makes a bad read from time to time, and turns the puck over too much. Guess what? I would literally take him over any DMAN on the Wings not named Nick. His real value is in the tough minutes he logs. When motivated and at his best, he plays every shift against the opposing teams best players night in and night out and does a lot better against them than the media will lead on.


He has seen 3 coaches, 3 different systems and has yet to have a reliable (whether consistent or talented) partner to build chemistry with. Also - it doesn't take much to figure out that the forwards he takes most shifts with might lack a few defensive instincts: Kessel -21 , JVR -23, Bozak -20. Much harder on any Defenseman when your forwards don't help out.


Pair him with Kronwall and watch what happens... Still 2 of the best open ice hitters in the game.

Well said.


I feel he's on par with Kronwall...I'm certain he'll become a more consistent player when on a better team with a superior coaching staff, and no media hounds atop of him 24 hours a day.

Safe to say, deal or no deal, this is one of the most exciting deadlines the Wings have had since at least 07 or 08.

Looking at myers with the jets ... I'm still a little bummed we didn't get him ... I think Babcock would do wonders with Phaneuf

What would everyone think of Kindl+Jurco+1st for Phaneuf+7th?


Nope.  I don't want to go into the draft without a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd rounder. 

#2576166 2/28 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Predators 3

What's the short recap on what I missed? I'm guessing we went up 2-0 then some ticky-tack calls led to the deficit.

#2567153 Marchenko recalled from GR... Ouellet sent down

Posted by kipwinger on 30 January 2015 - 01:23 PM

Holy s***!  You know what this means? 


We've finally got a right shot defenseman! 


Also, this means Smith will get to play his natural side.  That should be a good way to boost his production. 

#2566547 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by krsmith17 on 28 January 2015 - 07:34 AM

There's no way we should trade either of these guys unless we're offered a trade that we cannot refuse, which won't happen. These guys aren't going anywhere and for good reason. They're two of our highest picks since Marty Lapointe, back in '91, both of these guys have future franchise player potential. Keep all of our young guys and prospects, stay the course, and we will once again be a annual Stanley Cup contender. Kenny has been patient with his players for his entire tenure, there's no reason to believe that would change. I don't think there's any chance he trades, Mantha, Larkin, Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco, Pulkkinen, Athanasiou, not at this point anyway. There value is only going to increase, so why not see what you have with these young guys before you decide which one's are keepers or which one(s) to ship out.

#2566546 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by frankgrimes on 28 January 2015 - 07:27 AM

Both will fill huge needs when their time comes. Mantha had the size and from all accounts are crazy quick release. Larkin is by far the best center prospect for the wings. If both can turn into solid top 6 contributors that would be really nice.

#2566542 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by GoalieManPat on 28 January 2015 - 05:30 AM

You cannot compare the two right now. One is playing against boys in college and the other is playing professionally against grown men.

#2566207 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 January 2015 - 06:46 PM

Mantha - Larkin - Pulkkinen

Tatar - Sheahan - Nyquist




In 4-5 years, who wouldn't want to have that as a top 6?


I know I am all about making trades for no reason :ninja:  but honestly, lets upgrade through attrition. Unless something outrageous falls into our lap I like the direction the team is going from within... (of course if that top puck moving defenseman becomes available...then....aw crap! Back to indecision!!!!)
