  2. Franzen will go on LTIR again on the 1st day of the season; that will provide about 4 million in relief once they max out the remaining space so they actually have about 8 million left.

    2017 Draft

    I'm not confident Rasmussen stays on the board if they had dropped back and he was their top man regardless of what the local keyboard experts are opining. I am very confident that Lindstrom would have been available to them in the 3rd round unless they caught wind of something through the rumor mill or the pedigree grapevine/linkage. That was the only pick that has me smh and it's just about the timing and value standpoint not the player. I'm really intrigued by the 3rd round picks and the big Danish kid who is supposed to be a really good outlet passer. Not a great draft but not an epic fail like Puck Daddy, Wheeler and a few other pundits are calling it either. B- overall.

    Off-season moves

    I can understand some of the criticism and doubt given his lean 5 on 5 stats but I agree with you overall. Plus he is captain/leadership material which is something else they needed going forward given the age of the squad. Hopefully they advised him to avoid social media for a month or two after the draft because reading this negative crap all over the web would be a confidence killer for a lot of kids.
  5. Nope - I think they did what they had to do...chump change was in context of the overall discussion not the specific trade. I think Holland did the best he could do and got far more positive out of his trades then he lost out on...:)
  6. Maybe the truth hurts? I'll meet you back here in 3 years and we can reassess bragging rights. To me this is the start of the tear down and Griffins/prospects are unknown commodities. Meanwhile Z gets older and the defense is still porous. They dumped grit and a solid scorer for chump change and got an unexpected return for Smith. Nothing else has changed and their picks are in a weak draft. Tatar, Nyquist and Larkin were supposed to elevate the squad this year and you are banking on mid-tier prospects for a playoff run? Sorry but I see a two more years of pain with more selling next year. Patience isn't a bad thing in hockey...
  7. I was far more surprised at what they got for Smith then by the assets they acquired for Vanek as I never felt he was worth more then a late second rounder in the rental market. To me, this signals that management is publicly acquiescing to a 4-5 year rebuild instead of the quick 2-3 years that fans were hoping for by anticipating lofty returns on every deal just because a few teams reached or panicked early on. Kenny of old would have stood pat and offered a two year extension out of loyalty.

    Mike Ilitch passes away at age 87

    A very sad day for Wings and Tigers fans but the city of Detroit just lost a vital part of it's soul. He will never be forgotten!

    2013 HHoF Inductees

    I feel for Burns but Fred Shero deserved to be in the hall for decades and it's a shame he never got to see his enshrinement after the success he had in the 70's. That was one of the longest overdue inductions in the NHL.

    2013 NHL Entry Draft Discussion

    Sounds a lot like Helm from the scouting reports. Hard working checker with limited offensive skills.

    2013 NHL Entry Draft Discussion

    Excellent pick; great bloodlines too. His grandfather (Andre Pronovost) played a couple seasons seasons for the Wings in the 60's. Oops make that the 60's.

    Six outdoor games in 2014 for NHL

    I just read about the SoCal game on another site. They used the 1991 Vegas preseason exhibition that was played in 85 degree weather as a comparison and template for a successful outcome. I'm surprised the NHLPA isn't fighting this because of the threat of injury. They can't even maintain quality ice indoors during the spring in the south let alone outdoors.

    Project Unfollow-Hear the Fan's Voice

    I removed the NHL from my Yahoo scoreboard. That was the sum amount of any following I did other than TV.
