    2024 Offseason Thread

    I forgot about Larkin’s wife losing her baby. When the reporters asked about his year he almost broke down. He’s in a lot of pain and I genuinely hope he gets help and works through it. That was tough to watch.

    I think he's fine in the AHL next year, but I'd caution everyone that he's probably not going to look like a superstar. Since scoring from the SHL to the AHL is roughly consistent we have an idea how his offense will translate. So he'll probably score a lot. But he's not ready to score and defend against top end players. Certainly not at even strength. He'll need time in the AHL to learn how to do that. It's very clear by the way that Wings handled Edvinsson that they want guys to play a full game before they get NHL time. ASP isn't there yet.

    Did I say we should play Petry INSTEAD of ASP? Nope. I've openly called for us to pursue guys like Matt Roy and Brett Pesce to SPECIFICALLY fill the 2nd pair RHD spot. So pipe down cufflink.

    Cossa vs Wallstedt going to the shootout tonight Aaaaand Cossa out duels Wallstedt…again Mazur, Lombardi, and ASP all need to gain strength. Most of the other top end prospects already have bigger frames than Lucas did.

    I think y’all need to pump the breaks on ASP. Aside from the fact that he hasn’t played on small ice he also wasn’t a dominant SHL defenseman. He had elite production for is age because he was the trigger man on the powerplay. He was pretty sheltered at even strength and wasn’t even the powerplay QB for his team. He just has a really wicked shot but he’s far from a complete enough defender to play in the NHL anytime soon.

    Marco Kasper is an absolute bully and I love it. Also, Lombardi is going to be a player. He just needs to get stronger. He’s really slick and really tenacious.

    Play In Games

    No thanks on the play in game. I don't really think any of Detroit, Washington, Philly, or Pittsburgh really deserved to make it considering how bad they all were down the stretch. It sucks that we missed out, but I'm more bummed that we didn't continue to play at the consistently high level we played at for most of the year. I like the parity, but I'd have rather seen a tight race between all those teams because they were all winning most night...not because they were all losing most nights.

    Cayden Lindstrom would be my ideal scenario draft pick but I think he's off the board by the time we draft. Kid is absolutely everything we need. Big, strong, fast, skilled, mean center. Yes please.

    I really like Egor Surin, Sacha Boisvert, and Julius Miettenen for guys who should be available around Detroit's pick.

    GDT: 4-16 Montreal Canadians vs Detroit Red Wings

    This is the most exciting hockey we've seen in 10 years. I was fully bought in this season and we played like it all year long for the most part. It sucks SO bad to see them blow it like this. There were absolutely points this season where I thought we were amongst the 5-10 best teams in the league and then we completely deflated in the last third of the season. God damn it.

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK I can't believe our season just ended like that. I wanted playoff hockey so bad.

    He constructed a roster that was one injury away from blowing the entire season AND THEN didn't do anything to address any deficiencies at the trade deadline. I'd say a big part of this is on him. Poor Dylan Larkin. Literally did everything he needed to do to make the playoffs and the team lost it for him when he was out.

    I can't believe we were 8 points up on the 2nd wildcard and wasted this season. Unreal. Steve Yzerman should be drawn and quartered for doing diddly squat at the deadline.

    I miss the good old days in January and February when we actually had the lead once in a while.
