#2562750 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by e_prime on 12 January 2015 - 08:20 PM

I think it's time to pull the trigger on a deal for an offensive defender, whether we're in contention or not. I'm not sure we've got a bona fide top 4, offensive defender in Smith. Maybe it happens in a couple seasons, but I'm not really sold on it. Even if he has that potential, it seems evident that Babcock doesn't trust him, which makes me doubt he'll be played in a role where he can thrive. I know we don't have that in Kindl, and Ericsson has been suspect. In all honesty, Kronwall and DeKeyser are the only guys I trust in a top 4 role right now.
 

If there's one person on this board that agrees with you more than anyone else on this sentiment, it's kip.

And let the excuses begin...

 

 

All the more reason for a trade. 

Although, the #1 piece I want moved in a trade is currently injured... so I dunno how that helps us at all.

*sadface*

I bet we'tee the only team board in the league that devoted six pages in 24 hours to McGrattan.

 

We're simply the best.

 

Better than all the rest.

 

Better than anyone.

 

...

 

Sorta like McGrattan.

I can't tell if he's saluting or looking for a job.

If Kenny signs him, I will become Holland's biggest fanboy on here.


 

I didn't hear the news until 10 minutes ago.  That's what work does to you.  

 

Your job sucks.  I've been all over this all day. 

 

 

How do you feel about a line of Miller, Glenfiddich and McGrattan?

 

I has feels.

Good to know that LGW will stay true to the status quo.   NEVER CHANGE GMR!

You're welcome.  You're all welcome. 

 

By the way, have you seen the trailers for the new Mad Max starring Luke Glendening...errr...Tom Hardy?  It looks bitchin'. 

I was petrified by the prospects of this film.

 

After seeing the trailer... two words:  FUUUU#*#*$&&%^^#**@*!(!KKKK YEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!

I think he should get hired by the league to carry around Gary Bettman like Master Blaster from Mad Max

 

"Who runs bartertown!"

Someone with some photoshop skills get on this rightaway!

 

 

Mad Max references always get a :thumbs-up:

And no, I don't watch many Griffins games unfortunately, but I know that success in the minors guarantees nothing.

 

...but ignoring them doesn't mean that what happens during them can't translate into real world NHL level results.

McGrattan will come back three days after he cleared waivers to take his place next to YFMB to protect us against the rats.

Helene St. James reporting that Franzen has whiplash lol.  Whiplash. 

Whiplash, huh? 

 

Why didn't she just say "head and neck trauma" ?   

 

...or...

 

"Bruising about the head and neck area"

 

 

Let's come up for some other euphemisms for a concussion!!  C'mon HSJ you can say it:  "KUN KUSH UN!"

If this was my first day ever on LGW and saw that THIS was big news, I'd probably never come back.

Love you all!!!

 

...but then they'd be missing out on all of our AWESOME inside jokes/ridiculous memes and personalities.

 

To think... there are those that think we have no fun around here!!

I remember when he was a free agent and a common refrain was "I don't want Wisniewski.  He's bad in his own zone and he's asking for too much money". 

 

That was before we gave Kyle Quincey 4.8 million dollars to be a worse Brad Stuart.  And before a right shooting, powerplay quarterback, who can move the puck from the back end (e.g. James Wisniewski) became our White Whale. 

 

Oh how the times have changed. 

I was not part of that chorus.  Goddamn! How I wanted him here. 

I didn't care about how bad he was in his own zone OR how much money he wanted.

 

...and yes, now that we have hindsight, it makes it even worse. 

 

We can only hope that somehow Ken Holland goes bats*** crazy and sets out with the intensity that Ahab did after Moby Dick to get us that elusive RH Defenseman!
