#2549600 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by WingsallTheway on 17 November 2014 - 08:12 PM

I think we could move Tatar at his value right now in a package for something useful. 


The reason why I feel okay moving Tatar is Pulkkinen - he is a goal scorer too and can provide a RH shot in the top 6. 


We could, but tatar is our only player who doesn't have the personality of a robot....I want to see him stick around his whole career. Hes our only player with sass and swagger

Well, what have they done since the start of last years playoffs? Nyquist has 8 goals, but in the end hes gonna be hudler. Too small of a winger for our small soft centers. Helm sheahan weiss and feraro all offer the same thing minus helms speed. Need to get more well rouned, wings of past had success with balance.this team is all same style players. Nyquist would get the biggest return


Nyquist is nowhere near hudler....like at all.....


Nyquist is our fastest skater (next to helm....gus is more explosive). Nyquist has the second best hands on our team. Nyquist is our most likely player to score a goal on a given night. 


Hudler was small and he showed it every night...gus doesnt. This is an awful comparison Nyquist is is more comparable to a young zetterberg...

This team really needs both Z and D in the lineup. The whole team plays better since we actually roll 4 real lines

Its pretty evident that the wings need to improve in the shootout...all around. Even dats stinks now; I used to get excited just to see him get a chance to do something magical.


Solid comeback to get the point though, although that seems to be normal nowadays.



Regarding helm in the shootout:


yes it was a bad call as he just lost the puck on his way to the net in typical helm fashion, but he played a good game and everyone would be saying babs is the best coach ever if helm had scored. If anyone remembers, helm did score a clutch goal in his other shootout attempt to give us a win.

gustavsson may as well replace his glove with a frying pan

Actually for his career hes been pretty average. Not the best but nowhere near the worst. But hey, lets not let facts get in the way of some good ol goalie hate.


Well in the past 3 seasons I can recall him being awful so thats enough for me


important: I like howard

so is howard the worst shootout goalie in the NHL?

#2545953 Chara out 4-6 weeks with knee injury

Rask is phenomenal, one of the best goalies ive ever seen play. The bruins defence is worse right now then ours was last season... you can put anybody in net there and obviously the stats won't be as great.


Going into this season, there was speculation that boston would be a worse team then they were last year, when you factor in the injuries theyve had with the loss of Iginla, its going to affect your goals against.

#2544276 Kindl on the block

Posted by WingsallTheway on 24 October 2014 - 05:38 PM

We make room ? ... If it's true ... Larkin kindl for myers ... Trade smith/howard in a package for eberle and call up mrazek to take over with monster getting a bit more starts than now and then we call up ouellet

Yes Howard's been awesome thus far(which can up his trade value)but I think mrazek is a star in the making and Larkin May be good but we got a lot of good forward prospects coming and I think although myers struggled he can get back to the player buffalo thought he would be here

Zetterberg datsyuk eberle

Nyquist sheahan Franzen

Tatar helm jurco

Miller glendening abdelkader

Kronwall Ericsson

Myers dekeyser

Quincey ouellet



Smith shouldnt be traded for anyone hes our only solid offensive defenceman. Let alone for eberle.....


eberle is one of my favorite players but we would be getting owned here. He is being pushed out the door by edmonton fans, which should be saying something. 


Also, with regards to howard:


Mrazek is almost without a question our future goaltender, but gustavsson is good for maybe 15  games a season, otherwise hes hurt. Do you want to run a tandem of Mrazek + Mcollum with our skeptical defence? We would get lit up. 


Bad trade ideas.

#2542473 Mrazek Called Up

Posted by WingsallTheway on 19 October 2014 - 09:56 AM

Yeah I agree, No way I'm trading Smith at this point. Eberle is one of my favorite players but as a team that may lack a superstar Dman in the future, Smith has all the tools to be that. Plus we have a glut of forwards already. 


Smith has easily been our most improved player so far, and is our only defenceman next to Kronwall who is any sort of an offensive threat.

If I'm Ken Holland right now, I send Weiss, Cleary, Lashoff, Kindl, and a first round pick to Buffalo for Tyler Myers. Dump the trash Babcock doesn't want and stop letting them bring down the team. There's no point to pine over its and what could have been. Just ship em off.


Weiss has some value, so take him out and add andy miele and we can get sam reinhart and theyre 1st for the next 3 seasons
