Christian Ehrhoff on waivers.

I haven't followed his situation at all. Worth a gamble or does he have a bad contract vs level of play?

lol Hedman?  Talk about untouchable.


He's more valuable to TB than Stamkos.

Either we take a big risk and trade for a soon to be UFA. (Buff, Yandle, Shattenkirk)


Or we overpay at free agency.


People need to get out of la la land where they expect playoff teams...in our division...who are directly competing with us...to deal us there best players.


Hey, he asked for names and I gave him a couple off the top of my head.  Not like I was saying it was likely to happen.  I'd rather the Wings just not do anything at the deadline and wait until the offseason to try to acquire some of what we need.

So who, exactly, is this top-pairing defenseman we're going to trade for that's going to help our first round exit woes?


Names please.


Kevin Shattenkirk and Victor Hedman are possible options, just to throw some names out there.  It's debatable if Shattenkirk is really a top-pairing guy but he would certainly be an upgrade over a lot of our current D.  Hedman might be gone if TB somehow re-signs Stamkos.

I'm not satisfied with year after year of mediocrity, sliding into the playoffs and losing in the first round and saying"well, if this or this happened, I think we might have won that round, and after that you never know."  


I agree with this sentiment.  This year's team doesn't even compare to the team of 08-09.  I know our core guys are a lot older now and not having Lids anymore hurts but Holland really hasn't done much to address the holes that guys like Rafalski and the forever-injured Franzen left in the lineup.  I would absolutely trade just about anyone currently on this team other than Larkin and Mrazek.  They need a legit top-pairing defenseman or they're going to continue to struggle to get past the 1st round.

The new NHL app is even worse. It's like when MySpace changed their layout and finally killed the site for good.
