    I share the same thoughts. Few others: - I agree with Brian Burke (yuk!). I think they the lottery should have a cut off point. Somewhere between 6 and 10. No team finishing 17 - 21 should have any shot at the lottery - If the current system is not amended I'd rather go back to the old "you draft where you finish" format. I have way more tolerance for watching an already bad team deliberately lose than I do watching Chicago, Carolina, or Philly jumping 12 spots into the top 3. - MUST HAVE RADIUS CLAUSE: If you have won a cup within the last 5 years, no moving into the top three. If you have drafted top 3 within the last 3 years, no top three for you this year UNLESS you finished bottom 5 in the standing.

    This is why I'm feeling pretty optimistic about the future and it's why I don't feel there's a pressing need to move AA or Mantha at this time. I live for s*** that makes me laugh maniacally and nothing in hockey makes me laugh as maniacally as overwhelming forward depth does. There's a saying that you'll see obsessive Oilers fans throw around online: "Get good players. Keep good players." That's how you build the foundation for a perennial powerhouse. Don't worry too much about perceived positional need until that need has directly led to your defeat in a best-of-seven series. Don't trade Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson. Don't place an arbitrary limit on how many 30-goal scorers you're going to allow yourself to carry. We're getting an elite forward prospect next month. Let's say that player is Dylan Cozens. All of a sudden, with just that one addition, we've got a guy whose floor is a solid 2C and whose ceiling is a better-than-Larkin 1C. All of a sudden, with just that one addition, the idea that Bertuzzi-Larkin-Mantha will be our top line a couple of years from now seems almost quaint. All of a sudden, there's a bit less pressure on every single player in the system to overachieve and become a total stud. There's strength in numbers. This, in theory, is strength in numbers: Athanasiou Bertuzzi Cozens Larkin Mantha Rasmussen Veleno Zadina Now, granted, the salary cap system means that even if we could get this group together on the Wings roster, it probably wouldn't last for more than a season or two. But I say you cross that bridge when you come to it. Maybe something falls into your lap on your way to that point and you end up trading AA for a Brett Pesce. Cool. Do that. I'm just saying I think the default mindset should be "Patience, patience, patience. Hoard, hoard, hoard."

    Kenny's the MAN. Says a lot about Red Wings culture that he never really had to deal with a situation like this in his bazillion years with the Wings.

    f*** boys, it's over, I was wrong to doubt you. He's definitely coming to Detroit confirmed. TJ Trouba, Trouba's younger brother, was hired by the Red Wings in 2017 to be a ticket sales account manager. Confirmed via linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tj-trouba

    A few years ago I would have been all for it. Now, at the age of 27, pending UFA, nah... If he could be had for cheap, sure, but I wouldn't want to give up the sort of package I think it would take to get him...

    Not to advocate for Karlsson, but this injury thing is being vastly overstated. In 10 years he's had 3 significant injuries: Groin this year, broken foot/ankle at the end of 16/17 (recovery from surgery caused him to miss first 5 games of 17-18, but he did not actually have any injuries that year), and a cut achilles in 2013. 324 consecutive games played between the achilles and the broken foot. It's not like he has chronic, recurring injuries. Trouba has 3 significant injuries in 6 seasons.

    The one who's not a crybaby, diving, d-bag. So his right hand grip is stronger than his left hand grip. Hmmmm. Do they test for blindness?

    In regards to Callahan, the more I think about it, the more I think we might get out of Tampa. Think about our Datsyuk trade. If we didn't move Datsyuk's contract so what? We woulda been tied down for a season but ultimately we'd be fine after. If Tampa doesn't move Callahan they are serious repercussions. Point is probably gone. Karlsson isn't an option. Meanwhile 3 defensive regulars need to be re-signed. Stakes are much higher here. This will be the first real test of Brisebois. He absolutely must move that contract IMO if not more.... just let old buddy Stevie help you out like he helped Holland with Quincey...
