  1. Rumors Thread

    We were not "all disappointed." Most of us thought he did a decent job. I don't want Green back unless it's at a discount contract. $5 mil is too much. The goal should be getting younger, not bringing back middle of the road vets, and just because he has been the best D-man on this team doesn't mean he's not a middle of the road vet.
  2. If Draper is the next GM, I don't think I mind it

    If the point is supposed to be that staying with an organization forever makes you a better GM/scout/whatever, it's wrong.
  3. Mrazek traded to Philly for Conditional 3rd and 4th Picks

    Batman Or he knows 1 good month doesn't wipe out almost 2 full years
  4. Mrazek traded to Philly for Conditional 3rd and 4th Picks

    http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index.ssf/2018/02/ken_holland_red_wings_werent_g.html#incart_river_index "(Mrazek) is not the goalie I'm keeping because we have to qualify him at $4 million this summer," Holland said. "All I can do is watch games and makes assessments based upon what I see." Holland said he hasn't decided if Jared Coreau, who was recalled from the Grand Rapids Griffins to back-up Howard, will remain with the Red Wings the rest of the season. He said Coreau has played well in the AHL and earned the opportunity. But he also might be better off playing regularly with the Griffins than watching games in Detroit. Holland didn't rule out acquiring a back-up goalie before the deadline. He said if Coreau isn't sent down before Monday, he'll likely remain here since teams are allowed only four recalls following the deadline, except in the case of injuries.

    I sincerely hope Holland isn't the one spending that money or we're likely to fill that cap space with more middling players making $500k more than they should.
  6. Mrazek traded to Philly for Conditional 3rd and 4th Picks

    No, nothing is nothing. A 4th round pick is still a pick. Mrazek will then lose 19 of his first 20 starts

    what's your point?
  8. Mrazek traded to Philly for Conditional 3rd and 4th Picks

    If Mrazek hadn't spent most of the last two years looking like an AHL goalie he wouldn't have had to worry about it. I'm guessing this means they had no intention of qualifying him this summer, so they got at least a 4th for a guy they were going to lose for nothing later, and potentially quite a bit more. 4th (or more) > nothing, especially when there isn't much of a market for goalies. Holland did a good job.

    Yzerman has zero reason to come to Detroit. Give it up

    Darren Helm isn't a bad player. Darren Helm isn't worth his contract. One or two guys making $500k too much isn't a killer. 10-12 guys making $500k too much is. So if you can move any of those guys, you do it. I hope the Bruins take Helm and Babs gets his man crush back and the Leafs take Glendogmillionaire. Replace both with guys making reasonable salaries, and you're in better shape.
  11. Some good news for Holland haters

    I look at results. He made a name by finding a couple guys who turned out better than most people thought they were going to be over a decade ago. Since then he hasn't done any better than most scouts.
  12. Rumors Thread

    I'm torn on Mrazek. It all depends on if you think his recent play is what you're going to see going forward. If so, I think qualifying him is a no-brainer and you try to move Howard. If not, you try to move him and let him walk if you can't, draft a couple goalies this year or trade for a good prospect, and use stop gaps like Howard until a rookie is ready.
  13. If Draper is the next GM, I don't think I mind it

    The best candidate after a series of interviews. If Holland stays in the organization I'd make sure it would be someone who wouldn't be beholden to him and feel pressured to take advice as an order. Of course I'd also tell Holland if he interfered he'd be out on his ass in a hurry.
  14. Some good news for Holland haters

    I don't know, I don't work in the NHL so I don't know what scouts may or may not be available.
  15. If Draper is the next GM, I don't think I mind it

    If he's the best candidate and will tell Holland to GTFO and STFU if he tries to interfere, great. If either of those are untrue, get someone else.
