  1. Nice to see Abdelkader on an appropriate line. Athanasiou on the third line makes zero sense. Rasmussen may be a healthy scratch tonight for Ehn. They're considering sending him down to juniors so that he can play in the AHL playoffs. Really confused as to why Nyquist isn't on the top line to showcase him and hopefully move him. There is no reason to keep him beyond this season, especially since you'd be banking on him having this kind of production continue, which is very risky.

    Sulak and Cholowski look the readiest to jump into the NHL now.

    Matt, I messaged you earlier but haven't heard back. Any spots left?

    Zetterberg's status in 2 years. MOD WARNING PAGE 6

    A big question mark is going to be goaltending. They need one of those young guys to develop and show up strong.

    Blashill is not a good coach... plain and simple. And on topic, it'll suck to lose Z, but I think it's time for the team to start forming a new identity with Larkin leading the way.

    Given the fact that he actually can skate and scouts have said as much since there was some doubt when he was drafted means all these comments about his skating ability are negative fandom BS. Knock it off.

    Dylan Larkin Signs ($6.1M x 5 yrs)

    That's a good signing. He is the future Captain and should be a perennial 70+ point player starting this upcoming season. $6sh million is the sweet spot for a 60sh point player, so he already fits that criteria with room for growth.

    Isn’t this old news? He was seen golfing this past weekend and it’s up in the air.

    Solid deal for Mantha and makes you scratch your head that Athanasiou only makes .3 million less. Should be making 2.25-2.5.

    I like this lineup, although I think it was the Athanasiou-Nielsen-Vanek line that absolutely tore it up when we had Vanek 2 season ago. I also would hope for Nyquist to get traded.

    And if he can be moved NOW in a package to bring a top 4 (YOUNGER) d-man, you freaking do it. Drafting Zadina made him expendable. What does this team lack more than anything? Defense.

    Nothing like trading for an actual need.

    33 points and a -15.... not exactly banging the door down. When he can show a dedication to playing some semblance of defense, then this contract is worth it, in my opinion. He has the skill to be a 50-60 point player and not be a liability on the defensive side of the ice. So far, he hasn't lived up to the expectation and this team needs a top 4 d-man more so he absolutely should be considered a trade chip along with Nyquist and any of the overpaid players on this roster (which are less likely to be wanted).

    Official 2018 Off Season *Rebuild* Thread

    They can, and will most likely waive Frk and his $1,050,000 in the minors now. Unless my math is wrong... they have roughly $10,099,169 to sign Larkin and Mantha. That figure takes Franzen's cap hit out and includes the buyouts of Weiss and Ouellet. It also includes Rasmussen and Cholowski (Hronek makes less than Cholo and Zadina is not signed yet). Just checked (https://www.capfriendly.com/teams/redwings). I think I'm right after you exclude Franzen's cap hit and waive Frk. So they're fine to sign everyone and bring 3 rookies up. I could see Larkin getting a 5-year deal around 5.5 million and Mantha a 2-year deal around 4 million.
