    Abdelkader Needs To Go

    mass produced pilsners and lagers, and light ANYTHING are horrible. Get something from a smaller brewery like Bell's, Founder's, Perrin, Dogfishhead, or Shorts' and you can get some good stuff. on Redwingscentral I got call a Holland apologist regularly until he went full retard and really went downhill.

    Abdelkader Needs To Go

    I'll be optimistic when the team gives me a reason to be. Until then it's just more of the same BS

    Abdelkader Needs To Go

    Nobody wants Abdelkader with this contract and Blashiill couldn't win with one of the Cup teams.

    A bridge deal was probably necessary thanks to Holland's cap management. Solid deal for now, but if he does explode like some expect it's going to cost a lot to extend him.

    Mike Green Officially Signed *Mod Warning Page 4*

    He's been decent when given the chance other places. Going just by points, especially comparing d-men, is useless.

    Nobody wants Ericsson, and Dekeyser isn't the problem.

    Daley is here. I'm not complaining about him now. No need to bring in Green. Sign a guy to a one year deal as a placeholder and tell the kids they have a legit shot. Maybe someone surprises them. Cholowski could certainly make a case to make the team, or Hicketts. Green isn't the difference between pretender and contender, the team is loaded with vets, there was ZERO reason to sign him, especially with a NTC.

    2 years with a NTC until next deadline. Dumb move. No "unless" about it.

    “As we go forward over the next year or two, and we’re trying to transition from older people, it’s important we’re competitive,” Holland said in a conference call. “ Holland is looking long-term, but would still like to see this particular roster contend. “The hope is we can hang in,” Holland said. “The longer we can hang in, the better the environment is for everybody, for the fans, our players, especially for our younger players. “My focus is probably a little bit down the road, (but) hopefully we can hang in and be in the playoff race. In order for that to happen, some of the young people that were on the team last year need to take another step. We need some of the veteran players to play at the same level or a touch better. “Dealing with young people, there’s no track record. If all those young people can take a little step, we can be relevant. If not enough of those players take a step forward, or take a step backward, it’s going to affect our ability to compete.” https://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/nhl/red-wings/2018/07/01/detroit-red-wings-get-goalie-jonathan-bernier-three-years-bring-back-thomas-vanek/749094002/ Defense is the same, minus XO. Jensen is bad, Dekeyser is a 2nd pair D, and the rest are on the back side of their careers. Zetterberg, Vanek, Nyquist, Abdelkader, Nielsen, Helm, Glendening, Witkowski are all either going to be about as good or worse. Larkin, AA, Mantha hopefully will improve. Frk is what he is if he makes the team. Bertuzzi will probably make the team, but he's going to top out as a 2nd/3rd line guy. There's 12 spots locked up, with Frk, Turgeon, Svechnikov, Rasmussen, and maybe Zadina fighting for one spot. A smart GM whose team was in the Wings' position would be signing guys to one year minimum salary deals with the understanding that if a young player is even close to as good as the vet, the kid gets the spot. Holland isn't doing that.

    Holland will sign more vets, keeping kids who are as good or better than the vets in GR because "veturn pressuns"
