So, you're saying that Sproul has equal value as Kindl? Helm is the almighty top 6 piano puller, why wouldn't he have value to someone, plus, WPG is closer to HOME for him, they may want him there.  Maybe they'd like what Helm brings compared to Ladd. It doesn't matter. It wasn't K/E for Byf. like you "boomed" it was. 
Listen, you were caught with your hand in the cookie jar with no cookies to be had, stop trying to make something up just to save grace....nobody PARADES around the forum's pretending to be a ROSTOR MANAGMENT GURU. I have been arouond a long time and have no problem taking critisism, negative or positive. But make it have some substance, don't laugh at an E/K proposal as a LOL proposal, when there was never a proposal to begin with. Then when you are proven to just be trolling around, you take another proposal (that may or may not be a fair one) and say "well, I meant this is just as bad...you know nothing..." Comment on WHAT I WROTE and I have no problem with it, make s*** up and then there's issues...next you'll be saying I never put Jensen on any roster proposals! :ninja:  Just drop it, get back to topic and comment on things that are said in text. Stop trying to bait users...

So you admit that you think Ericsson, Helm, Sproul and a 3rd is a plausible offer for Byfuglien and Ladd? Interesting. I wonder how that converstaion would go?...

Holland: Hey Chevy, this is Ken over in Detroit. You got a sec?

Cheveldayoff: Sure Ken, whats up?

Holland: I heard you might be shopping Buff, wanted to see if we could work something out.

Cheveldayoff: OK, whatdaya got?

Holland: Well, I thought Ericsson would be a good fit for you. He's pretty much exactly like Big Buff, except he isn't quite as big. Or tough. In fact, he doesn't really intimidate anyone cause he doesn't fight much. And he isn't known for thowing big hits. And even though he's only about average defensively, at best, he is projected to have the best offensive year of his career.

Cheveldayoff: Oh really, what's his career best?

Holland: 15 points!

Cheveldayoff: ...

Holland: But just like Byfuglien, he used to be a foward. Except he wasn't very good at it. Oh, and he's signed for about 2 million dollars too much. But don't worry, his contract is up in only 4 more years! Plus I'll throw in Sproul to sweeten the pot! We were really high on him when we drafted him, although he has been somewhat underwhelming since... But he does have 1 NHL game under his belt!

Cheveldayoff: Wow, sounds great Ken... Should we throw the captain of our team into the deal?

Holland: Well, since you mentioned it...

Nevermind Lefty, I can totally see this deal happening. And for the record, you absolutely have thrown Ericsson/Kindl out there in the last week, I just don't have the time to sort through all your bat-s*** crazy posts to find it.

Also, ending every post by calling me a troll and other condescending nonsense doesn't mean you're taking the high road. It means that you want to appear to be the bigger man while simultaneously getting the last word in. Just an FYI

Ka-Boom....still trying to see where it says Kindl/Ericsson....that says Ericsson/Sproul and add Helm/3rd if they want to give us Ladd too. You just keep digging yourself deeper and deeper into trollville...

Ericsson/Sproul is equally laughable as Ericsson/Kindl. Helm/3rd for Ladd is even more so. It's ok that you don't know that, but when you parade around these forums like some kind of roster management guru you open yourself up to some critisism.

Well you obviously did NOT read my posts, and are just chiming in to pile on....I NEVER said Kindl and Ericsson for Byfuglien...
I Said, in a three team deal we'd send Helm, E, Sproul and K for Byfuglien, then I said in a separate proposal Helm, Kindl and a 1st for Byfuglien...so I guess you can LOL at yourself then, becuase I never prosposed a Kindl Ericsson swap for Byfuglien...goes to show that some folks just comment beore they read.

I would think that a sign and trade would cost us a bit more, considering the work would already be done for us and Byfuglien would have to agree to be traded here.
IF we're including Ericsson (who also has a modified NTC, not sure what it is though) then here is my offer:
to WPG : Jonathon Ericsson, Ryan Sproul
to DETDustin Byfuglien
​The reason I include Sproul is to sweetin the pot up and also to do what has to be done with one of the 3 remaining kids in GR.  Have to get something for them rather than lose them off the waiver wire next fall.
If they want to include Ladd in the deal, I add in Helm and a 3rd. (The 3rd Toronto owes us.)  Not sure the cap would work though....

for the record, wasn't in referrence to you. I understand what you are saying and your post added substance to the topic. I here ya on the Lucic, people were just saying maybe since they just gave Kopitar $10M a year, maybe they try to trade off Lucic if they fear they cannot re-sign him... I was just using his name as an example of go big or don't go. If we were to give up valuable assets, it would have to be for someone with his type of impact, if we just cannot part with said pieces, then don't waste time by just getting a role player or utility guy....we need to go big, or just cut ties with replaceable players and bring the kids up to continue to reload.

Wait, so you're saying that playing what if games adds substance to the topic? OK

There's nothing wrong with a little dose of reality around here.
...and the fact of the matter is that there is no "what if" when it comes to Lucic.  He ain't available.  Not for anything.

Best of times?  Actually.  No.  Worst of times.

It was the spring of hope, it was the trade deadline of delusion.

Honestly, I'm waiting for Lombardi to somehow manage to void Dustin Brown's contract so that he can re-sign Lucic.

Actually, I lied. I know exactly why it happens.

It's because these guys covet other team's star players that play a particular brand of hockey they long to see again in Detroit. They convince themselves that these players must be acquired at any cost (other than, you know, actually parting with the assets that would be required to do so) They then scour the internet for any tidbit of information that somehow seems to support their fantasy. Inevitability they become irrationally upset at Holland when he fails to trade rape the 29 other GMs in the league. Good times.

Posted by Bannedforlife on 18 January 2016 - 04:11 PM

exactly, my point being (even though I would like to have Drouin and Rychel for the future) my point is we need a top sniper and a top defender, which would cost a ton.  But there's really no use in overpaying for someone who is not top 3 0 or top 2 D. We don't need depth, we need a star. I would like to see what it would cost for Lucic, I do believe, despite his reputation, he is exactly what could help us out.  Same with Byfuglien.  I like Ladd, always have (minus the fact he was a Hawk.) but I am not sure he fills that top scorer role, we have plenty of 2nd and 3rd liners, we need a Lucic, Stamkos, Hall type player up front, and a Byfuglien, Yandle-ish player in the back.
There's always the ouotside chance that a less expensive player may help, like Edler or Myers, but I say go big or stick with your guns and just get rid of the fat like Ericsson, Andersson amongst a few others....and promote from within, XO, Jensen, AA, Mantha....

LA is 1st in their division and Lucic is playing well there. Not sure why anyone would think he is available.

#2648792 1/17 GDT : Flyers (2) at Red Wings (1) Shoot Out

Posted by Bannedforlife on 18 January 2016 - 12:48 PM

I'm just saying, you acquire Byfuglien, he sews up the toughness on the top end of the D PLUS you can plant him in front of the net on the PP unit, then put Green back there with his shot and the PP has got to get better! (unless of course Byf gets hit in the PP, then ouch! :lol: )

Byfuglien cannot be acquired for what you are willing to give up. You should prepare yourself for that reality.

#2636675 Abby Signs 7-year, 29.75 mil Extension

Posted by Bannedforlife on 12 November 2015 - 06:03 PM

For the record, im fine with the deal. I would have liked to see something with less term and/or money, but its nothing to get upset over.

HOWEVER... this really makes me question Holland's ability to negotiate. Like, how much was Abdelkader's starting point? Did he want Tarasenko money or something? Because otherwise it seems like Holland just laid down on this one.

#2622552 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by Bannedforlife on 08 August 2015 - 09:35 PM

Las Vegas getting a team has to be the pppdumbest idea since that damn into the desert and non hockey markets.

Gambling, prostitution and other stuff AWwill be on the daily schedule add to that the working hours of most potential customers and this screams stupid market that shouldn't have a team and will be another sub 7.000 attendance market but that *** league and the midget won't care because after all crap markets are the way to go, instead of relocating some franchises I.e typical NHL thinking

Yea, because no other city in America has hookers and bookies...
