#2491175 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by evilmrt on 05 March 2014 - 06:22 PM

Am I missing something or did we in fact pay more for David Legwand (a rental) than the Habs paid for Thomas Vanek?

 

Legwand probably called Holland and said he wanted to be traded there, and Holland, while playing Solitaire, asked his wet-behind-the-ears assistant to pull a trade out of his butt and here we are.

#2491141 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by evilmrt on 05 March 2014 - 06:05 PM

Just to put this trade in perspective as to why some of us don't like it, here's some examples of trades where it makes it seem like the Wings got fleeced:

 

Moulson and McCormick for Torrey Mitchell and 2 2nd round picks.

Vanek and a 5th for Colberg and a 2nd

Meszaros for a 3rd

Gaborik for Frattin a 2nd and a 3rd

Hemsky for a 3rd and 5th

Rundblad and Brisebois for a 2nd

Luongo and Anthony for Markstrom and Matthias

Robidas for a 4th

Penner for a 4th

 

So to be fair, I'd say Legwand (contract expires this summer = currently a rental) for Eaves a 3rd and instead of Jarnkrok a 5th sounds like a deal ANY OTHER TEAM GOT TODAY!

 

Am I happy we got Legwand? Yes.  Am I ok with what we gave up? No cause of Jarnkrok.  

 

Only saving grace apparently after venting to my dad, apparently Jarnkrok was threatening to go to Sweden to play again per Malik, and getting fleeced in a trade by the Preds, we may have a future trade partner in them and he seems to think something big may be coming in the near future, possibly draft and that we're getting some centre from Russia.

 

This is absolutely right on. I don't understand why Jarnkrok was part of the deal. Eaves plus the pick is fine....maybe even then a slight over-payment. But why not just splurge and throw in a talented prospect, too? Here, take a few more picks while you're at it as well....

 

Holland is an average GM without his braintrust, and he just made an average trade. I'm not going to whine about it anymore, but average hasn't been in the Red Wings vocabulary for such a long time that this is difficult to take.

Kesler only willing to waive NTC for PITT PHI or NY... Ass.

 

Good, don't want that OSU a-hole.

Prediction:


Abdelkader, AA, Ouellet and 2nd for : Kesler

Almquist, Frk, Kindl and 1st for : Erhorf

 

Why the frack would you trade Almquist? Otherwise, I like it.

Your avator is the same face that Holland has right now while thinking about trades.

 

That's the point!  :lol:

@LavoieRenaud: Kings-Red Wings and Wild are trying to get Ryan Kesler. #tvasports

 

What kind of three-way trade are we looking at there?

Luongo comments on Kesler trade rumors:

 

 

"Whether he wants to go or stay, he's not going anywhere," Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo told reporters. "We all know how this script ends."

 

:lol: He would know!

Respect is a 2-way street. He can leave at anytime...
 
Considering what he has done for this franchise and fanbase, you would think people would be a little more accommodating when he wants to chase a dream.


So I can agree with you!

Yeah, he's one of two marquee players on this team... A true pillar of the Wings. The Olympics are held in his home country and he gets to be the captain. This opportunity won't happen again in his hockey career. Most of you would do the same in that context, so I don't understand all the whining. Must be the long winter.

The Silver means as much to the Swedes as winning the Bronze meant to the USA... after the two quick goals 11 seconds apart, the USA just mailed in the rest of the game...really, who cares about a Bronze? We went there to win the Gold and anything else was meaningless... I'd rather have a pin that says "I Participated at Sochi" than take home a Bronze medal in Hockey...


I think you're overstating things in terms of the Gold. First of all, the Bronze is won, not gained with a loss like the Silver. Team USA went home empty handed, and established new records of shame (first back to back shutouts for an American team since the 1920s, worst shutout in the medal round in Olympic history, etc). This crap goes in the record books, a bronze would have been something... Now this 2014 squad will look awful in the history books.

Could care less if NHL players don't play in the Olympics again.
 
Unless the games are in North America, you can't watch any of them live without quitting your job.  And the primetime evening coverage doesn't show re-runs of hockey.  They only had one channel showing the evening coverage when most people have returned from their workdays. 
 
One the bright side, I got to see plenty of figure skating and women in khaki pants doing stupid stunts on a snowboard.  :sleepy:


Pretty good argument for the World Cup to replace it? Round robin and qualification games could be held in two groups, each on both sides of the Atlantic. Medal round would be alternated between NA and Euro hosts each tournament.

One, it wasn't a bone fragment.  Two, unless it was pressing on a nerve there was no reason for him to have the surgery.

 

Thank you Holland apologist

I obviously wish the US had won, but I was about as upset as I was when I caught the two man bobsledding team not win gold. Which is to say not really upset at all. Now if the US loses to Canada tomorrow you may find that I've thrown a temper tantrum and destroyed my living room.
