    I can also see it the other way... Yzerman maybe wanted to lock him at a longer-term for between the two prices but Bert wanted a shorter term so he can improve production and score a bigger contract next go-around. Who knows, to be honest. Within 48 hours.

    Erne is better than Abdelkader. Abby was only going to hinder playing time for a younger guy or sit out. Yzerman had the excess cap space to make the move and it makes perfect sense with where the team is at right now.

    I guess you need to assess who would be the bigger impact player... I would be tempted to deal Seider if it meant getting Laine. Tempted doesn't mean I'd pull that trigger, though.

    Yeah, I would have been surprised if he signed in SJ.

    Marleau apparently wants Thornton to join him in San Jose. Interesting but I can't imagine SJ committing to both of them if they want to win. Thornton has taken a huge step down. Also, crazy to see Hoffman and Granlund still waiting for contracts. I'm sure there are others, too.

    Very well stated. I have family who have struggled with alcoholism and maintained respectable careers, had loving families, were great parents and grandparents, and eventually were able to seek help with what they were struggling with. It's easy for some to throw shade on something they themselves have zero clue about. That shows pretty poor character, especially when they double down on it. I'm with you, which was the point of my first response, to say let's keep things on the topic of hockey and not start this nonsense of, obviously, fanning the flames.

    This is a crap response, man. You're just adding on to the nonsense that a certain troll in here started. You want to talk hockey, yet we need to read your "hot take" on what your think is going on with someone vehemently disagreeing with someone who clearly doesn't understand the content they're trying to troll others on. You don't either, given your ignorant response. Instead of trying to steer the conversation back, you just fanned the flames. Bravo. You and the troll have shown pretty bad character here.

    We need to stop feeding the troll. He's a lonely dude, that much is fairly obvious. It would be nice to have hockey conversations on this site without one person dragging it all down into the mud. Having worked with all types of folks working through trauma, mental illness, behavioral health issues, it's evident he has no clue what he's talking about (as is usually the case).

    Yzerman's 5th Year (2023-24) -- Looking ahead..

    And you live on conspiracy island on some planet far far away since you seem to think a turn-around from the s***show that Holland put this team in is going to take a couple of seasons, apparently. No one is claiming that this team will suddenly be a contender next season. Not even close. This team will be better than last season and that is what is most important in giving the players something to work toward. Yzerman is building a team that will be able to compete in the long-term and not just rushing things. I think the biggest problem is that you have not provided any substance to your arguments. The additions that have been added are better than what we just let walk, plain and simple. When you add 6 players that are improvements over what you had the prior season, logic would suggest that the team will improve season over season. Unfortunately, logic and CRL don't get along too well. He won't get it

    Yeah, that's the challenge really, for any of these players who are more in demand. They have to choose between going to a possible contender or a team that is in the early stages of a rebuild. It's tough, but that's another reason why I feel Yzerman has done a very good job of attracting the players he has. Ryan, Greiss, Stecher, Merrill, Namestnikov... They all very much seemed to WANT to come here, to be Red Wings, and help this team grow.

    Does he need to "Erne" his way back on to the roster?
  12. SwedeLundin77

    2020 Offseason

    I think Zadina would benefit from playing on the first line with Larkin and Bertuzzi.... I think it makes sense to spread your offense out a little bit so you put someone like Mantha on the second line for Namestnikov to feed pucks to. I would give Zadina a chance on the first line, but dude, that is a very nice looking roster (for the players we have). It's also refreshing to see no Nielsen or Helm.... haha. Beautiful! Oh, almost forgot about Erne. Maybe have Erne and Timashov alternate. They need to assess both to see what's what.

    I have no doubt that Yzerman was interested in Krug, Turris, Shattenkirk, etc.... I also have no doubt that he called about Fleury and may even still be involved in a 3 team trade that send Fleury to Buffalo. I also have no doubt that the Red Wings and Tigers like most professional sports teams are not in the greatest position financially... I just don't believe that what this guy is saying about the Wings isn't true for the majority of teams in the league due to the season cut-short and uncertainty about when things will get back to normal.

    Bertuzzi - Larkin - Zadina Fabbri - Namestnikov - Mantha Ryan - Filppula - Gagner Helm - Nielsen - Glendening Nemeth - Hronek DeKeyser - Stecher Staal - Merrill Biega & Cholowski working in I think so, maybe? Craig Custance follows him, so that is something.

    Ummm.... I'll do you one better: Timashov-Namestnikov-Svechnikov Setkov - undrafted-kov How do you figure? Do think Ryan takes the 2nd line wing?
