    2020 Offseason

    Except Zadina's 1/3 of one season was actually good. Your comparison forgets that there is no actual legit reason to write off Zadina at all in the first place. Well, that's certainly one way to look at it.

    2020 Offseason

    I hoped, rather than expected. Getting a little sick of watching trash. I usually don't get too wrapped up in the record. I find rebuilding a lot more fun than those 2011-2015 teams that were gradually declining with the same s***ting lineups. But it's hard to get excited about a season when you know, before the season even starts, that they already intend to tank. Especially this season because it feels like FOREVER since I've seen the team play, and now on top of it when I finally do see them I know in advance that 2/3 of the roster will be old, mediocre, puds. "Hey Red Wings fans, you excited about a new season?". Well let us throw cold water on that by reminding you that any given night you're going to see Helm, Abby, Nielsen, Filppula, Gagner, Glendening, Dekeyser, and Nemeth. Boy howdy! It's miserable that the most exciting thing to happen to his team in two years is finding out that Robby Fabbri doesn't absolutely suck. Yippy. Edit: On top of that we're about to draft Cole Perfetti, who is about 4 years away from hitting puberty, so god only knows when/if he'll be an exciting new part of the Red Wings roster.

    If there is a compliance buyout it could be Nielsen. Filppula only has one year left. He could be bought out with a small cap hit for 2 years.

    I was advocating for this since he was acquired. 1 year at basically league minimum for a guy who will probably be more effective as a middle 6 center than Filppula or Nielsen have been.

    $850,000 per Capfriendly. Did you expect anything different.

    Love it. Great contract. Because we signed Gagner to close to league minimum?

    Sweet. Another year of rock bottom. Can't wait.

    Do you guys think there is any chance at all that we could get rid of Nielsen or Filppula this offseason? Edit: 850k per Capfriendly

    Gagner signed to a one year deal. Don't know the deets yet.

    I don't even think he's black. Just further evidence of his massive trolling.

    This is a bigoted response and makes you look like a hypocrite.

    Agreed. Well said. There is also a lot of ‘diversity’ in hockey as it stands right now. Many different countries and cultures represented.

    No that changed. At this point its just a 10 team no trade list.

    2020 Draft Thread

    Well, "we've not seen anything to date" that would indicate he's a bust either. Again, I keep reverting to facts here, but 8G 15 points in 28 for a 20 year old rookie ain't bad at all.

    2020 Draft Thread

    I was simply saying that he's not a two-way player. That, like Mantha, he's exclusively there for his offense. I was suggesting that drafting Poirier, a guy who is also known for his defensive shortcomings, may give us a player with "game breaking" talent.

    LOL are you being serious? I'm honestly not sure... Zadina is 20. Howard is 36. HUGE difference... Okay, fair enough. I disagree, but whatever.

    2020 Draft Thread

    We've not seen anything to date that would make that plausible let alone probable. His performance has been "meh", middling, run of the mill, etc. I know I'm known for the Zadina is a bust line (which he is) but let's assume I'm wrong (which I'm not), to deem him a game breaker based on what we've seen so far is flat out ridiculous.

    Uhm... that's pretty typical when comparing a player at the beginning of the career and another at the end. Generally speaking, goalies (or any skaters) don't improve after 35 years old. In fact, a very bad year is usually a sign that their career is coming to an end. No question that Zadina has a much better chance at outperforming 2019-2020 than Howard. No matter what you think of Z's skills, it is just a fact that potential is higher when you're younger than when you're older.

    I thought someone said Zadina is the new Kucherov because they both we the bed when they were 7 or something.

    Your belief that a lack of black or native players in the NHL has anything to do with racism is just wrong. If you offered free equipment, training, and coaching to 100 random black kids, they would overwhelmingly choose basketball and football over sports like hockey. That's not racism, it's culture. Certain groups of people prefer certain sports. Its a choice, not discrimination. In sports like hockey or baseball, the number of black players is low in comparison to the general population. True. But the percentage of black players in basketball and football is significantly higher than the general population. In reality, if you were to tally the number of individuals playing professional sports overall, you would find that the percentages of each race are similar to the general population. Systemic racism in sports, hockey, or the NHL, is a myth. Blacks are generously represented among professional athletes. The fact that percentages are higher in some sports and lower in others is due to culture and choice for the most part. To say that certain sports are "racist" based on demographics would be like accusing manufacturers of racism because their products are more popular among certain races than others. Our culture affects what products we buy, what food we eat, what sports we play. Not everything is about race.

    So writing off Zadina after one season=bad Writing off Howard after one season=good And yes. I would rather have 1 year of Jimmy at 3 mil than 4 years of Markstrom at 24 mil.

    What the f*** do you think they "teach" in diversity training....? Oh, wait. That's right. You've never had a job, so you wouldn't know.

    I've always been a Howard supporter, but he hit a brick wall this season. It's unfortunate, but it's time to move on. It's too bad he had to go out the way he did, after a very solid career, but it happens.
