  1. The team next year

    What would you do? I would try; Mrazek Howard Larkin - Zetterberg - Mantha JVR - Nielsen - Oshie Andreas - Shipachyov - Svechnikov Callahan - Glendening - Bertuzzi Alzner - Shattenkirk Dekeyser - Green Hicketts - Ouellet trade tatar and nuqvist for a really good top 6 player (jvr perhaps). jurco, helm, marchenko. abdelkalder, ericsson, jensen, smith, kronwall, sheahan, trade them all for draft pics. go hard on the free agents (alzner, shattten, oshie). check europe for players (Shipachyov perfect mentor for Svechnikov ) trade vanek for a first round pick. promote callahan and bertuzzi, i think they are better options than old players like ott and miller. svechnikov might not be dominating in the ahl but he got world class skills, i think he can step in the upcoming season. hicketts or sproul? draft Hischier and Hague in the first round and erik brännström with the second.
  2. Team next season?

    Tatar - Datsuyk - Pulkkinen Nyquist - Zetterberg - Abdelkalder Jurco - Sheahan - Helm Miller - Glendening - New gritty player Kronwall - New Dekeyser - New Ericsson - Marchenko Howard Mrzak Somehow we must get ride of Franzen, Weiss, Smith, Andersson, Kindl and Quincey.
  3. Do we need to add grit?

    In every season the Red Wings have been accused for being soft. Are we soft this season? Should Holland go after a gritty defencemen or a gritty 4th liner or maybe both? Could Chris Neil and Nicklas Grossman be something for us? Miller - Glendening - Neil Smith - Grossman What gritty players are available?
  4. Curious to see how everyone would construct an All Star lineup of Red Wings from the 2005-06 season to the current one. The idea being to build a lineup assuming everyone is at their peak season during that timeframe. So longevity isn't important, but they can only play at the level they played at for our team. Brendan Shanahan (06) - Pavel Datsuyk (09) - Marian Hossa (09) Johan Franzen (09) - Henrik Zetterberg (08) - Mikael Samuelsson (06) Tomas Holmstrom (06) - Robert Lang (06) - Jiri Hudler (09) Daniel Cleary (11) - Kris Draper (06) - Todd Bertuzzi (11) Nicklas Lidstrom (06) - Niklas Kronwall (09) Mathieu Schneider (07) - Brian Rafalski (09) Jonathan Ericsson (12) - Brad Stuart (11) Dominik Hasek (07) Jimmy Howard (13) This team would be favorites for Stanley Cup in todays NHL?
  5. Detroit Red Wings - All Time Team

    Shanahan - Yzerman - Howe Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Hull Kozlov - Larionov - Fedorov Probert - Draper - Holmstrom Lidstrom - Chelios Coffey - Murphy Kronwall - Konstantinov Hasek Osgood Wings must have one of the strongest all-time team. Surely, this team would dominate in todays NHL?
  6. anyone knows if there are any? I could not find anything. (with old I mean 2010 and before) would love to see some game from 2002.
  7. Now some gritty forwards.

    sign komarov
  8. Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

    sign vanek, downie, callahan and tallinder. vanek brings scoring. downie is a 30 pointer with tougness. callahan is a 50-60 pointer who also gives us physical play. tallinder is a good gritty veteran. give legwand A REAL shoot. callahan - datsuyk - vanek zetterberg - legwand - nyqvist jurco - sheahan - tatar downie - helm - abby kronwall - smith niskanen - dekeyser ericsson - tallinder
  9. Now some gritty forwards.

    the thing is, wings like gritty forwards who is like helm, abby, miller and glendening instead, and it really sucks. only abby play very physical but he is not very hard hitting or tough.
  10. Florida willing to trade first overall pick.

    trade tatar, sheahan and legwand. zetterberg - datsyuk - draitsetl
  11. Thinking on 2013/14 roster.

    Tatar - Datsyuk - Nyqvist Flippula - Zetterberg - Franzen Andersson - Helm - Sheahan Tootoo - Emmerton - Ferraro Kronwall - Ericsson Kindl - Cola Smith - Dekeyser I dont like Brunner. Floater. Soft.
  12. Team next season?

    How will the team next season look like? I want to see. Flippula - Datsyuk - Nyqvist Franzen - Zetterberg - Brunner Tatar - Helm - Ferraro Abdelkalder - Sheahan - Tootoo Kronwall - Kindl Smith - White Ericsson - Cola Howard Monster
  13. Our current forwards.

    lets face the hard truth. holland wont do a jack s***. we have: bert, dats, flipp, z, mule, cleary, helm, eaves, miller, abby, tootoo, nyqvist, tatar, andersson, emmerton, mursak and sammy.... too many forwards... the best would be: Flippula - Datsyuk - Cleary (Cleary is better then Bert, period.) Franzen - Zetterberg - Samuelsson (Sammy is still decent, and these guys have some chemistry) Eaves - Helm - Miller (fast, gritty line, 30 points each) Bertuzzi - Abdelkalder - Tootoo (Physical line that can play some decent hockey)
  14. Our Current Defense / What Holland Can Do *merged

    the best we could do with current squad.... Kronwall - White Quincey - Smith Ericsson - Kindl
  15. Bottom Six

    Flippula - Datsyuk - Nyqvist Mule - Z - Sammy Cleary - Helm - Bert Abby - Emmerton - Tootoo No need for Homer and Mursak. Eaves and Miller i like, but we dont have 5 lines..
  16. Holland Content with Current Roster

    With Doan and Langkow. Flippula - Datsyuk - Doan Sammy - Z - Mule Cleary - Helm - Bertuzzi Abby - Langkow - Tootoo
  17. Doan staying in PHX 4 yrs $21.2 mill

    Doan - Datsyuk - Semin
  18. Bottom 6

    What do you guys think it will look like? Ideal would be.... Eaves - Helm - Miller Tootoo - Abby - Clutterbuck But its gonna look like this... Cleary - Helm - Samuelsson Tootoo - Abby - Bertuzzi Cleary, Bertuzzi, Samuelsson....old guys with no grit and speed. Thanks Holland!
  19. Jonathan Ericsson. Knock, knock...

    Dont worry! Holland will bring back Lilja! Mark my words.
  20. Team coming season? Tatar - Andersson - Nyquist Brunnstrom - Pare - Brunner Ferraro - Sheahan - Aubry Callahan - Glendening - Parkes Janik - Exelby Almqvist - ? Nicastro - Lashoff
  21. My 2013 Roster...

    A man can dream. Flippula - Datsyuk - Nash (Scoring line, Nash is powerforward) Doan - Zetterberg - Franzen (Scoring line 2, Doan is powerforward) Bertuzzi - Samuelsson - Cleary (Big veteran line...can Sammy play center?) Tootoo - Helm - Abby (Fast gritty line) Yandle - White Kronwall - Quincey Ericsson - Smith Howard Monster Emmerton, Homer, Mursak, Kindl, Eaves and Miller....please god no. Tatar and Nyqvist one more year in AHL.

Much depends on what he is prepared to accept himself, says Detroit's general manager. What do you mean? - He would then probably have a different role. Less ice time. Do not play in any of the top chains. And given age is probably also a lower wage. Holland continues: - Right now I do not know how Thomas's reaction to it. Detoitcoachen Mike Babcock has his theory clear. - I think it will be a package deal. Continuing one of them will be the second to catch on. And of course I really want to either run for another year"
  23. 2014 Team USA Roster Predictions

    1) Not a Caps fan, but this kid is awesome. He played like a legit top pairing defenseman as a rookie, and logged a ****-ton of minutes on one of the best teams in NHL. He's the definition of an all-around defenseman - he can play PP, PK, he can shoot it, join the rush, and start the rush. Very heady player, too. Also played very well against the Rangers in the playoffs from what I saw. He is also gritty. For a comparison...hard to think of one. Think of any big, RH, two-way defenseman. Maybe Brent Burns, but better defensively, and a bit worse offensively. 2) Yes, Stepan from Rangers.
  24. Babcock and Holland want to keep Homer.

    Mursak - Emmerton - Homer Nice checkingline.
