#2491558 3/6 GDT: Avs 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) Sorry Nick.

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 March 2014 - 01:25 AM

Nice tribute GDT MIkey.

 

I'd assume if Legwand plays he'll be centering the top line, eager to see what he brings to the table. 

 

More importantly, it's Lidstrom night. I'd like to see this GDT remain about the game and the legend that is Nick Lidstrom, and not an extension of the Legwand trade thread with ongoing bashing and complaining about him all game. 

 

Nick is receiving the utmost respect by never having his number worn again in a Wings sweater, and it's well deserved. May #5 hang among the other legends and it be a great and victorious night.

 

Wings win 5-1. 

 

GO WINGS GO!!




#2491020 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

@mabusincarnate to give up what we did for a mediocre player past his prime, he'll be another cleary Bert Weiss.... I don't need any factual stats I seen him play he's nothing special and certainly not someone who will 'help carry' this team with our real stars injured....

Legwand this season 40 points

 

Cleary this season 8 points

Bertuzzi this season 13 points

Weiss this season 4 points

Eaves this season 5 points

 

I fail to see the comparison or the point entirely. So the final verdict is "He's a scrub because i've seen him play and I say so"?

If we wouldn't all be injured he would stay in Nashville.....
And it might have been worst trade of the day

You need to start posting some kind of factual reply instead of just an ongoing rant that "He's garbage, He's a scrub" without any kind of speck of argument to back up your opinion. It's been pages of these replies now. 

 

He's a leader, he's consistent, and even on a below average team he's put together a respectable career. He fills out a center position that we drastically need right now. I'd love to hear all of these negatives that give you such a foul opinion of the guy.

Not saying he's going to have a surge of offense, but he is a former 1st round 2nd overall pick that has played for a not so great Predators team. Consider his point totals over the years with the offense he has around him. Playing on line with who, Craig Smith and Gabriel Bourque this year and still managing 40 points? 

 

I honestly like his chances of putting up mildly better numbers here with guys like Nyquist and Franzen on his line and eventually one of two world class players. If you consider the offensive weapons Nashville has had over the years, it's tough to really name one outside of Weber.

 

I hope he surprises people and strings together some good offensive numbers so people can relax and see how much Legwand can actually contribute here.




#2490864 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

I think people are a bit quick to stomp on the panic button here. What a lot of you aren't considering is Jarnkrok's verbal desire to return to Europe and play hockey over there. If that is the case down the line, Eaves and a 3rd for Legwand isn't bad, especially if Legwand re-signs here. 

 

Look at how many we have injured and Eaves still barely makes the line-up. We have a lot of players that can fill in his role. A 3rd might equate to a bottom 6 forward in 5-6 years, the rarity of getting a gem in the 3rd doesn't outweigh the risk. 

 

A lot of this decision was based around Jarnkrok potentially pulling a Kovalchuk and bailing out of the NHL system. If that happens, a lot of you are gonna feel better about this deal. I'm assuming management knows more about this scenario than we do. 

 

Take a deep breath, this isn't the end of the world.

This trade went from not too bad to awful with the announcement of the prospect involved. Ferraro would have made sense, you know, a guy we were never going to use anyway?

Eaves, Jarnkrok, and a 3rd probably could have gotten Vanek if Jarnkrok is indeed the prospect involved here...

How much value do you guys put on Eaves?! Even with all these injuries he barely cracks the lineup.

I woulda have a pick and prospect for vanek or moulson. Would be a lot more help then this old useless legwand. Needed a dman. Did not help the team much got a center to fill in the 3 we have injured. I rather have Andy first line center. Hopefully we miss the playoffs. Holland fail

He's 33, has 40 points on the season which puts him 2nd overall on Detroit in totals behind Zetterberg. Not sure where the unfounded anger about this move is all about. I don't see Andersson finishing 40 points total by the end of the season.

Putting words in people's mouths is not a good trait...

No offense intended but considering Legwand is a center and you said we don't need him that is assuming in your opinion our center situation right now with injuries is better off than bringing in Legwand. Right now our top line center is Andersson, i'm not sure what else "We don't need Legwand" points to except you don't feel like upgrading Andersson is necessary and therefore he's a better option over Legwand.

 

If you meant differently then please reiterate, that's just how I perceived that comment.

We don't need Legwand and I don't want him, he's mediocre at best. 

 

Give us a defenseman ffs!

You think Andersson is a better top line center over 40 point Legwand? Let's be realistic here..

I'm getting tired of being amped up or trade deadline day and the Wings doing absolutely nothing. Don't let me down again today Kenny..

He's one of those players who are better without the puck :P

This legit made me laugh :lol:

 

This is what you get when a 4th line center gets 1st line minutes.
