#2577183 Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by Wings_Toledo on Yesterday, 09:01 AM

With Petry gone... In my opinion, looks like Phaneuf or no one on DMen


Zidlicky is still out there.  I think he would be a better fit for the Wings than Phaneuf, honestly.

#2573688 Around the NHL -- GWT -- 2/16 thru 2/22

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 23 February 2015 - 06:55 AM


Couldn't believe how many PP's you guys didn't capitalize on


I see what you did there  ;)

#2572315 2/18 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blackhawks 2 (SO. Yes, SO!).

Seeing Tats punk Kane on his own move was the happiest I've been all season.

#2571507 Why are the Wings Afraid to Block Shots?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 17 February 2015 - 01:23 PM

That screen by Kronwall on the first Montreal goal last night was a prime example of "either block it or get the hell out of the way."  I think if Jimmy had been able to see that shot clearly it wouldn't have gone in. 

#2569873 So, Evander Kane...

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 11 February 2015 - 03:12 PM


IMO, this will make the Sabres a worse team this year than before the trade...


...which is exactly what they want.  They want to win the race to the bottom to better their chances at McDavid.


They pretty much would have done that without the trade.  It just doesn't really make sense from their perspective, especially giving up that late 1st rounder in what is supposed to be the deepest draft class in years.  Without that pick the trade is only slightly lopsided in Winnipeg's favor, but man does it ever seem like overpayment on Buffalo's part...

#2569391 Leafs Make History

4 liner...how often do I have to repeat that ?


Didn't know he has been traded and yeah a 7 rounder is a steal for that kid. Here's a video of the kid yup totally not worht a 7 rounder right ?



Impressive.  I'm sold.  One small question, though: can he play hockey?

#2562028 McGratton on waivers

Babcock would never use him but I hope he ends up somewhere.

#2556893 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 15 December 2014 - 01:54 PM

All I know is that I don't want to see the Oilers end up with Connor McDavid.  As the most hyped prospect since Crosby, I'd actually like to see this kid get a shot at becoming a star player on a team that's actually trying to rebuild instead of languishing in Edmonton and wasting the first 3 years of his career.

#2555112 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 09 December 2014 - 03:56 PM

A team in Las Vegas would quickly turn into another Arizona Coyotes situation.  Their ECHL team, the Wranglers, even voluntarily suspended operations for this season because they were essentially kicked out of their arena (not necessarily for attendance issues, but still).  I would much rather see Seattle or Quebec City get a team if the league insists on another expansion.

#2549125 11/14 GDT : Blackhawks 1 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 15 November 2014 - 05:27 PM

I have to admit, it's nice having Quincey back.  He's played pretty well so far this season.

#2547560 Gustavsson injured

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 06 November 2014 - 07:17 AM

Knowing how Wings' injuries often go from "day to day" to "out for 4 months," this could be Mrazek's shot to steal the backup spot for good.

#2533105 Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 28 July 2014 - 07:39 AM

My predictions?


Half the roster is injured by November and they barely scrape into the playoffs again.

#2530266 MDZ close to signing with wings?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 06 July 2014 - 03:14 PM

I've seen this on several rumor sites, but nothing from known credible sources yet.  It's another case of "oh, this guy was once known for his offense and the Red Wings need a puckmover so... 1 + 1 =" kind of situation.  He might be able to find his game again in this system but I'd rather let one of the kids play unless MDZ comes as a 7th d-man and we trade Kindl.

#2526923 BUF to buy out Christian Ehrhoff

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 29 June 2014 - 01:09 PM

Would be great if the Wings can sign him. I don't know why anyone thinks we would also get Niskanen. There just isn't cap space and I'm sure one or the other will take an offer that isn't reasonable for the Wings.

#2524643 Detroit re-signs Gustavsson 1 yr $1.85 mill

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 19 June 2014 - 04:58 PM

My guess is the he gets hurt sometime around December and Mrazek steals his spot for good. Not a bad insurance policy, but like others have said; he didn't look very good going down the stretch...
