All I can say is WOW, I mean I figured we could get a 2nd and maybe a prospect for Rozy, but Wolski... WOW.
That adds some goals right away, but we will defintely make a deal for another defenseman. I just hope Sather doesn't take garbage like Commodore, I think we see a deal for Tyutin to come back to NY now.
I'm hoping another move on D is coming. That's a LOT of minutes to replace.
it is...but this team just has so many high quality young defenseman that you gotta have faith that we can fill in around them.
you have to figure that Staal, Girardi, and Sauer are locks for the future...that leaves only 3 spots to fill out of McDonagh, MDZ, Gilroy (if hes still here), Valentenko, McIlrath, Kundratek, etc.
We're overflowing with young defenesman, but we are kinda short on high end offensive talent. Wolski is a risk, i mean hes having a pretty mediocre season right now, but the kid has talent....i love this move.
holy ****ttt....did not see this one coming...i came on these boards to take a break from NHL with this gut feeling sather would do something today with another day off and frolov being out for the year....and this is the trade he pulls off...wow just wow he is good when it comes to trades. Frees up some cap space too.
If this is true im really going to miss Rozy, i thought he was a very good player here 90% of the time but like other Euros got a bad rap. What is it about Rangers and Phx lol. Anyway i think Wolski from the exterior looks like a very good player, looks like he fits the system well, plays similar to Dubi, Cally etc. Although you have to wander why two teams have moved him in the last year or so. Did Phx want Rpzi that bad or were there other factors. However worst comes to worst we lose a good D man in Rozy for a potential problem player in Wolski. Im sure with Torts behind the bench he will give effort if that was his problem. Still love our D core, Stall, Girardi, Sauer, Valetanko, MDZ, Mcd and Mclirith. Those are all very good D man imo so losing Rozi will not hurt as much as it would have 2-3 years ago, where is was are best D man. Not totally on board with Eminger and Gilroy on the roster at once.
I wouldn't get very excited if I were you guys. As Avs and Coyotes fans will tell you, there is a reason they call him "Floatski". Worst forward on the Coyotes this year, no defense, no drive to succeed. Thank god hes gone.
Maybe I'm missing something... You sure you guys aren't just falling into the optimistic young guy is going to do so much more?
Rozy was a good player for us who wanted to be here. There is something to be said for that.
Wolski hasn't done much of anything this year and I'm one of those people who think that just about any player can put up decent points when given enough minutes.
And am I wrong in assuming that Wolski doesn't have a physical game to speak of as well? Does he do the little things? Because at this point being in the NHL for a good number of years, he isn't going to get a ton better at that aspect.
Any thoughts on how Wolski will work with what you guys have? Thinking about picking him for fantasy hockey...
He's an enigma who disappears way too often, as was the time when he was with the Avs, but he was too often put on the third/fourth line in Phoenix compared to the top line minutes he'd get with Colorado.
He ripped it up for Phoenix coming over in his trade...
