Garth Snow not moving Vanek is way worse than Ken Holland not making a move.

Winging It In Motown @wingingitmotown 1m

Start of season: "Why aren't the Red Wings playing more kids?" Today: "Why are the Wings not trading the kids for vets?"

 

 

All I can do to keep myself from crying... is to keep myself laughing.  Please, help me.

Down Goes Brown @DownGoesBrown 33s

Apparently those winter-weary Islander fans who prayed for just one day in March with no trace of snow should have been more specific.

 

 

 

lol!!

Any sugar-y beverage will do.

You just stop it with that reasonable and measured response T.Low! 

 

We want action!! We want more rows, columns, and fields on our spreadsheet filled in!!   :ninja:

And they re-signed Cleary, and signed Alfredsson and Weiss. Either let the kids come up or trade em. But MAKE A CHOICE for the direction of the team!

 

Look.  All those things happened BEFORE Holland decided he was going to go with youth, and let's be honest, I'm not even sure he has embraced this idea fully.  Injuries has forced his hand this season and he's beginning to see the light. (Hopefully.)  ...but not every single prospect is going to be brought up for the sake of bringing up prospects.  People that want 'krok and Pulk up in favor of Bert... you're kidding yourself.  Holland will probably play Bert before he slots in either.

 

...and you HAVE to have veteran presence.  (see: Edmonton)

The Mike Weaver for a 5th and the Hemsky for a 3rd and 5th could have made this team MUCH better than we are now... Holland is smooching the pooch today. 

 

Weaver is not what we need.  Hemsky is not what we need.  Neither of them would make us MUCH better.

 

...and the saying is: "screwing the pooch"

Man, like him or not...  the Burke/Duffie interactions are hilarious.

Prices supposedly dropping... Holland breaking out his coupons as well.  Maybe we'll see something??




#2490030 Lightning Trade St. Louis to Rangers for Callahan + picks

Posted by e_prime on 05 March 2014 - 11:51 AM

Pick info:

 

Tampa gets 15 1st; '14 2nd that becomes a 1st if NY gets to Conf Final.

IF Callahan stays, NY gets TB 2nd in '15 and TB gets NY's 7th in '15.

 

Pretty complex deal on all levels. 

 

James Mirtle @mirtle 1m

Given St. Louis apparently only want to go to the Rangers, Yzerman did pretty well with the deal.

 

This may be the understatement of the day.

Sens rumored to have interest in Hemsky.

 

Anytime a team around us or chasing us in the standings makes a move, or thinks about making a move, or dreams about making a move today... and we sit on our hands.  I twitch uncontrollably.




#2489930 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by e_prime on 05 March 2014 - 08:50 AM

 

Oh, well as long as you FEEL that he needs surgery, by all means they should schedule it ASAP.

 

Babcock has been sitting Cleary every game for quite awhile now.  Once he runs out of other bodies that might change out of necessity.  Samuelsson is "hurt" again so that's not an option.

Believe that Clears is "hurt" as well... at least not up to his normal 56% mobility.

 

EDIT:  Forgive me.   That might be a generous number.




#2489893 3/4 GDT: Red Wings at Devils

Posted by e_prime on 05 March 2014 - 12:01 AM

Uh-oh.

Hope we call up Jarnkrok and Pulkkinen. I don't want Bertuzzi in the lineup anymore.

 

Did I miss something?  Bert has scored in the last two games that he's dressed.  Problem?
