#2576359 Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by Echolalia on Today, 06:56 PM

Petry isn't Lidstrom but he is an upgrade on Kindl.

 

When Quincey returns from injury Kindl may not even be in the lineup.  Petry would likely be an improvement over Marchenko just based on experience alone, but is it worth giving up the required assets to improve your sixth best defensman? Marchenko hasn't exactly been a liability out there, either.  He's been steady, solid, moving the puck quickly, and getting better every game.  I don't think the difference in skill/experience/etc between Marchenko and Petry is enough to even part with a second round pick, especially because whatever improvement we're talking about is being delegated to our bottom defensive position.

I only have one question?  How the HELL do we have only one shot on goal? 

 

C'mon Puckloo only scrub teams can only muster one shot on net at this point, don't be silly.

We have two.

#2574392 How is the Wings' Pro Scouting?

Posted by Echolalia on 24 February 2015 - 01:41 PM

I dont know if it's as big of a deal to have many pro scouts. There are only so many pro players that are available at any one time, and the team can whittle down that list to just their particular needs (for example there are only so many defensman available at this trade deadline, and the Wings don't have much interest in a bottom 3 defensman, or a left handed defensman, so is it worth wasting the resources to scout these players?). After a more narrow list is made, when you consider all the tape that's out there one these players, and their league-wide reputation, there may only be a need to have a few pro-scouts on staff to go investigate these guys in person.

It would be painful to lose two games to the Ducks due to last minute gaffes after outplaying them in both games.
