#2532413 Kane & Toews Sign Identical 8-year, $10.5M AAV Extensions

Posted by achildr1 on 17 July 2014 - 08:24 PM

 

That was so aweful...makes Ozzy and Draper look like Daniel-Day Lewis clones. I seriously cant stand Kane in any sense...such a serious wiener.




#2491078 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Actual trades made today say pretty much otherwise.


You had to have been watching a different planets deadline day(s) (including yesterday) ...a first and Jarnkrok could very well been the ground work to get a much better player than Legwand.

This is why holland should just sit on his hands on deadline day. I think Jarnkrok + 1st could have gotten Edler and actually solved a problem for once. 

Also Holland said he wouldn't make a move for a rental - well that meant jack squat.


Yep...exactly. Jarnkrok is a peice I bet Vancouver would looked at a big part of a Edler deal.

As someone who has followed both Collberg and Järnkrok in the SHL as it's now called I can comfortably say that Järnkrok was a much better player in that league.
 
Järnkrok has a SHL championship as well.


Thanks...exactly my point.

I wouldn't waste a 4th round pick on either of those guys.
Vanek is a rental, and have you seen Collberg?  The guy is like Mantha.  A 2nd round pick and he has a great upside.  I think Montreal overpaid.

Dig into these trades a bit before you start saying that these are just scrub players. 

Thanks for giving me more fuel btw...take Collberg and compare him to Jarnkrok in the SEL at the same age. It makes our trade even worse.

Legwand had a NTC  - its not like other teams were asking really. Holland had a sitting duck and he botched the kill brutally. Preds would have lost him for nothing in the offseason - holland had all kinds of leverage.


This^^

Id like to know how many teams offered even a 2nd for Quincey the year we gave a 1st for him. Im coming to think Holland doesnt make trades because he has no ability to haggle or even take advantage of circumatance.

Detroit got a proven commodity and gave up a prospect who probably won't even make the team for another 2 years.


He could, and from most reports of him, will be everything that Legwand is and more after those two years tho. Its why trading Schenn for Kesler made no sense. You only make trades like that when you're one move away from a Cup. This is a bandade on a grenade wound.

Wow, really?  I think Sheahan is much better to be honest.  Then we have guys that haven't even made it to the AHL to consider that have a much better upside than him.


This is so short sighted. Actually Jarnkrok is out performing Sheahans rookie AHL year and he actually has an excuse (moving from the big ice) to have a rough transition. Just because Sheahan is on the big club doesnt mean he's better. Sheahan is likely a third line player long term. If were lucky, he's somewhere between Abby and Mule. Jarnkrok has always been billed as a poor mans Zetterberg and has been playing against men since he was 17.

George Malik ‏@georgemalik 1m
 
Red Wings did indeed send Calle Jarnkrok to Nashville w/ Eaves, and 3rd, for Legwand http://dlvr.it/54YFXv
 
There must have been truth to the rumors that Jarnkrok had threatened to leave for Brynas.
 
That's all I know--there must have been truth to the rumors that Jarnkrok wanted to go back to Sweden.
 


This is the only thing that makes any sense.

Yzerman: hands are forced by MSL and turns him into Callahan a first and second
Bergevin: trades a conditional ! second and Colberg for Vanek
Holland: a 3 rd Eaves, Jarnkrok for ........Legwand......


EXACTLY!!!!!

I agree.  To be honest, Ferraro instead of Jankrok would have made this trade nothing+nothing+nothing for a proven roster player.  Maybe if we threw in McGrath...
 
I liked Jankrok over Pulk, but that's just opinion until they hit the NHL.


He's a Freaking UFA...What should we have traded for two months of, at best, a 2nd line center?!! Hemsky went for a third and a fifth, Penner for a 4th, etc..

If we just traded Jarnkrok for a 33 year old, pending UFA, older Weiss clone...Holland needs to step down. He could have had any other of the better guys for basically the same price. Pathetic.

This cannot...CANNOT be true...Legwand isnt worth Jarnkrok by himself, especially as a rental.

There is no way anyone with 97.1 knows before anyone on TSN...


#2489241 Question about Mantha

True, Kirk Maltby was a 50 goal scorer in juniors after all.


Mickey...is that you?
