#2264031 2012 NHL Trade Deadline Thread - February 27th, 3:00 PM ET

Gaustad and a 4th round pick for a 1st round pick.

Don't know about you, but I am glad KH did not make that trade. A 1st rounder for a rental 4th liner is not worth it.

Define nothing. Do you mean a 1st round pick next year?

Quincey for a 1st who is a top 4 guy who can replace Stuart next year.

Gaustad for a 1st - who is a rental 4th line centre...

Which was a better trade.

So why keep all the cap space for? Why trade Commodore for nothing?

Kenny messed up this deadline. Sorry folks, say whatever you want, standing pat is a mistake.

Do I wish he had added some depth at forward. Yes I do.

But to say he stood pat and messed up the deadline...no. He got Quincey in to help for this season as well as long term. I think he did pretty well.

Moment of truth upcoming...

There is still about an hour or 2 where trades filter in. Deadline is for teams to file paperwork with league, not to announce it.

How are those desperate moves? They paid decent prices on this kind of day, things we could've done. Fact is, teams were competing with are filling there needs going forward and as of now, we haven't. There's still lots of time, but those moves are good for the Canucks and Sharks, and that is bad for us.

I thought a physical D-man who could play the PK was a pretty big need. That is filled by a 26 year old 6'2" 207 lbs defenseman who wasn't on Detroit a week ago...

Pahlsson has some good things about his game, but he's not the player he was a few years ago and is hardly a guy that makes Vancouver a much better team. Us picking up Quincey is probably more of an improvement than them adding Pahlsson.

He is also better than Johnny Oduya.

People are comparing Detroit today to the rest of the teams today. Look at big picture. Quincey was a pretty big acquisition.

Wings made deadline trade for Quincey last week. Which was a pretty high impact trade. If they stand pat today I am okay with that.

Ditto. Blocks shots, not afraid of anybody... and he wins faceoffs. I would like him here.

Except for Milan Lucic <_<

i don't want holland to sit on this cap space when the team has obvious needs to address.

I would rather have Holland sit on the cap space than overpay for what some people are asking.

1st rd pick for a 3rd line center as an asking price...I would rather not.


#2260023 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Wings get a 26 year old D-man who is already familiar with the system who can play the 2nd PP unit and on the PK (both slots that needed filling). Additionally he is a physical guy who can dish a nice check.

He is a longer term solution too possibly who could possibly play with us and fill Stuart's spot if he leaves. Takes the pressure to over pay for a similar D-man in the offseason way off.

Nice move for this year and next year.

I hope they keep Joey Mac up as the #2 goalie. He has been very solid for us in this stint.

I really want Brunnstrom to make the team. He has Talent!!


#2197948 Backup Goalie?

Posted by russianswede919293 on 11 July 2011 - 06:00 PM

I think Joey Mac is a precursor to Ozzie. A proven back-up goalie eliminated the need for Joey, but Ozzie's groin makes Joey a great back-up back-up option if Ozzie gets hurt.
