Howard is untradeable without eating a good chunk of his cap hit.

Marchenko is not playing?? Bullshyte. Arggggg

 

There's no one to bench.  All the D have played pretty well.  E is the closest candidate to deserving to sit but even he's been okay.

I would like to stand pat at deadline. Love our youth, think we can be a very competitive club for foreseeable future. In this age of parity, it's going to be incredibly hard to get any sort of significant edge on the competition. Making the playoffs every season gives you a decent shot at making a run. Besides, we have no cap room this season and limited room next season given RFA's. Get rid of Quincy for a late round pick and go golfing for rest of year. I like our teams future.

I remember this discussion when the Jackets were trading Nash and everyone was saying they wouldn't trade him to a division rival, so they traded him to the Rags and then moved to their division a year later.   :lol:

 

This "can't trade with someone in the division" stuff is nonsense.  Get the best return for what you're trading.  If they're in your division, so be it.  It could end up burning them and helping you.  Not to mention, its not like you're just playing THAT team.  If you settle for less return, trying to avoid trading within the division, you deserve a fate like what happened to the Jackets.  Also, I can't imagine Yzerman, if he is serious about trading either Stamkos or Drouin, wouldn't talk to the Wings.  We have a lot of good young talent and obviously, the personal relationship with the franchise.  

 

What's your point with the Nash example?  The Red WIngs offered more for Nash than the Rangers did, but Howson chose to trade to a non-division rival.  So the NHL realigned things later, how is that relevant?

 

You have to DRAMATICALLY overpay to get a division rival to trade marquee talent with you, and seeing some of the trade offers bandied about on this forum, no one is willing to make the required overpayment.  And thankfully, Holland is not either.  

 

Drouin will not be traded within the division.

All the GM's are busy right now. Ours is picking his ass again. He wont do anything until Feb. 29th, and then he will bring Al MacInnis and Teemu Selanne out of retirement to bump 2 fast, young guys out of our playoff lineup. This Stamkos + Drouin deal is nice to dream about, but a total waste of time. Our GM is a fricking clown.

 

The Lightning would never trade a guy like Drouin to a division rival.  NEVER.  So you can continue to live in a fantasy land believing Holland is our problem, but expecting him to do the impossible is ludicrous.  

 

Or you can continue to bash Holland for all the success he has brought this team.  Quite frankly, you lost all credibility with me when you said Nyquist was a HUGE mistake that Holland made.  121st overall pick 20 goal scorer...and that is a mistake?!?!  You are either trolling, or you don't have any clue what you are talking about.

 

Holland has his issues (who doesn't) but calling him a fricking clown, lazy @ss who works three days a year makes you sound like the frickin clown.
