you can give up on tootoo, emmerton, cleary bertuzzi, hell...even kindl...but dont give up on weiss yet.

 

that guy went through the wringer in the last year and a half.

 

lockout.....wrist injury....missed rest of season.

 

signed on to new team with new style from being focal point to second fiddle. (different linemates every other game)

 

groin injury slowed him down, always feared making mistakes (and slowed groin) kept him from being who he was.

 

then injury took him out...again.

 

he was never an "alfredsson type"  so that comparison isnt fair. (not a "carry the team-leader" kinda guy)

 

chemistry and team style are huge in this league for player performance. he may never work out here....but he needs a good stretch of (healthy) time with the team before we all give up.

 

the red wings have a lot of players that "could" out perform somewhere else...or completely flop. (see...leino) flop-success-flop

 

back in the 80's players played their strengths...scorers...scored. not much back checking. but as skills elevated across the board, players are now forced to play all-around 2-way games. limiting the gifted ones to lower numbers and the game suffers.

 

ask yzerman.

 

yes, he became one of the greatest leaders of all time...but his numbers went south when he played the 2-way game.

 

weiss has been asked to play the "wings way" and that may not be the style that elevates him in our graces.

 

we may be forcing stamkos to play like maltby.

 

just my 2 cents.

 

so...go on...hit me with yours.

In Topic: Possible trade with Panthers

I can only imagine how much Tallon would want in this deal. No question he will be asking for a 1st round pick and I don't think we are in the market to be giving away our 1st round pick.

especially if the rest of the season goes south.

wings first pick could be a low double digit. (or better)

i do like kulikov, matthias,fleishmann....but defence is the priority.

 

kulikov + nick schultz would be great!  emmerton/ferraro to edm....kindl + 3rd. to florida


In Topic: So when would you make a move and what type?

24 January 2014 - 02:52 AM

what about volchenkov?

 

wasnt there rumblings he was on the block?

 

{kindl}, (emmerton), (tootoo),*sammy*,(andersson),{glendening},{lashoff},(quincey),*cleary*

 

cap, schmap.

 

make it happen kenny!

 

every trade has {one positive}, (one question), and *one negative*, so lets give them options!
