  1. 2017/18 reclamation project

    For such a bad team his stats weren't bad. His assist total went down but his goals and shooting percentage went up. His faceoff percentage went up considerably too.
  2. TheAthletic?

    Is anyone a subscriber to this site? Hadn't heard of it until today when Craig Custance joined the staff. Paying for internet articles seems asinine in today's world but if it's quality insight who knows.
  3. Looking ahead at expansion draft

    It could always be that he doesn't want to lose leverage by saying they'd like to make a trade. He also said he wouldn't trade assets to protect anyone, he didn't say they wouldn't trade assets to get rid of someone. Just playing devils advocate.
  4. New signing

    Can't find much on him outside of his Elite Prospects profile. Good size and decent point production.
  5. Smith/Hronek Assigned to Grand Rapids

    Do either of these guys have to return to juniors next year or are they pros? I can't keep track of all of the rules. Wasn't Saarijarvi up last year and back to juniors?
  6. Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

    8 years 8.5 AAV per McKenzie.
  7. Who would you protect?

    Since Bert and Larkin didn't have they're first full pro season until 15-16 they are clear. Mantha and AA are not.
  8. Red Wings re-sign Riley Sheahan: 2-years, $4.15m

    DeKeyser and Mrazek should receive large raises since they aren't expected to receive bridge deals. I could see Marchenko getting 2 years at 1.25-1.5 AAV. Pulkinnen has no leverage and hasn't proven anything. He'll be lucky to get an AAV of $800k.
  9. Red Wings re-sign Riley Sheahan: 2-years, $4.15m

    His games played and goals increased while his penalty minutes went down. Sure, his assists total took a major hit, but that can't be placed entirely on him. If he put someone in a position to score and they didn't isn't in his control. If he continues to progress and has a couple seasons with 15-20 goals and 25-35 assists it will be a great deal.

    Agree. I could see a few trades where the existing team gives up pretty good compensation if the expansion team takes a bad contract.

    This TSN article says that NMC must be protected but NTC do not.
  12. Wings sign Maine Defenseman Dan Renouf

    Per the official site. Anyone know much about him? Good size for sure. 6'2" 200 lbs.
  13. D-Boz tearin 'em up in the D!

    Don't you mean "The Dungeon"?
  14. Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

    No, I don't think they're playing well. But firing a coach 10 games into his NHL career seems rash. Back to the point I was making, he hasn't had one of the best players on the team and several key players have already missed time due to injury. It wouldn't be fair to fire a guy before he's given a chance to prove himself with the full roster.
