In Topic: Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

He  was 44 games away from playing his 1,000 as a nashville predator,Most of y'all aren't happy about this trade,but think about the preds fans feel,This guy was our very first draft in 1998,played 15 seasons for us and not once could we give him the gift that every hockey player dreams about:Winning a Stanley Cup

 

Interesting take.  If he's going to be a more talented Dallas Drake, I'm in.

Panic move.

 

Hang the blessed DJ.

 

 

Obviously I don't think there's a whole lot of substance to the Jankrok to Sweden move.

 

But if there was even an inkling, there's no way Martin would confirm that.

 

In fact, I bet there'll be an inquiry if he does leave for Sweden next season.

Let's have a look at the positives of this trade though:

 

1. Legwand has 40 points in 60 games under Barry Trotz's Nashville system

2. Legwand waived his NTC to come here, has a place here, so chances are he re-signs here (hopefully for a good cap hit)

3. Our centre depth is ridiculous, and will be for at least another 4-5 years (D,Z, Legwand, Weiss, Helm, Sheahan, Andy, Glendening) which made Jarnkrok expendable (Babcock would have none of that attitude)

4. Legwand has managed to stay relatively healthy most of his career, whereas our other centres are made of glass right now

5. He's got great speed and is a decent 2 way centre (you can't play in Nashville if you're not a 2 way player)

 

All in all, Legwand makes our team look much, much better. He gives us a chance at the playoffs, especially since Datsyuk is now out for three weeks and Helm is out. Andersson as our 1C for one game is one game too many. On another note, I absolutely love Sheahan and his line. Their shifts are easily our most exciting shifts each game.

 

Our center depth is decent now, but in 4 -5 years?

 

Dats might be done, Zetterberg is going to be decidedly on the back-end of his career, as is Legwand.

 

Andersson is...passable I guess, Glendening is not a real hockey player. Helm can't seem to put more than 5 games together, and Weiss, almost a season into his DRW career, hasn't shown is anything at all.

 

It's like a lot of names, but really not a great group, IMO.

we are getting a very reliable center for nothing+Jarnkrock+nothing. Would you like to trade Shaehan instead? Jurco? Tatar? Nyquist? Sproul/Oulette? Pulkkinen is the only only only option and we retained the best player out of Pulkkinen/Jarnkrock. 

 

I agree.  To be honest, Ferraro instead of Jankrok would have made this trade nothing+nothing+nothing for a proven roster player.  Maybe if we threw in McGrath...

 

I liked Jankrok over Pulk, but that's just opinion until they hit the NHL.

Ferraro, a 3rd and Eaves seems like the Preds got fleeced.

 

Jankrok, a 3rd and Eaves seems like Wings Lost.

 

The deadline is high time to pay up the nose for roster players, so I'm guessing it's the latter. :/
