    Trade Targets

    Ras had an awful start last season but found his game after lots of (deserved) criticism. He wasstrong on the puck, used is body far better then at the beginning, played with poise and scored on some nice really nice snipes. This year he has to prove that it was just the first step and I think he´s ready for more. Really liked him the second half of the season.

    Rumors Thread

    the good thing is, we don´t have to speculate any further. The bad thing is, that we have to play Tkachuk more often now... https://www.nhl.com/news/matthew-tkachuk-traded-to-florida-panthers-by-calgary-flames-for-jonathan-huberdeau/c-335072346

    Tkachuk reportedly is not going to sign a long term contract with Calgary, no mentioning of the Red Wings as possible destination. https://theathletic.com/news/tkachuk-trade-likely-flames-sources/pH0rzGF2cZYs/

    Wings Draft Marco Kasper 8th overall

    It was the same with Seider three years ago. People tend to forget that the european leagues are no development leagues like the AHL. The kids have to play against grown men at the age of 17 and if you don´t play the right way you´re not playing. That´s why their offensive potential is sometimes overlooked.

    A healthy Draisaitl would have made it a 4-2 loss instead of a sweep at best. The team is not good enough, McD and LD are. It´s better than Toronto though.

    2022 Playoffs Thread

    Edmonton had almost 39 shots per game against them in the playoffs, they lost three games were they scored 5+ goals. That is simply not good enough and it´s not an easy fix given their cap situation. I agree that they have two of the top 5 forwards in league but what´s the worth of it when you concede 3.7 goals per game? You can´t win a cup that way and your excuses why they failed are embarrassing. The Avs are the better team at the moment and there´s no denying it.

    Maybe Colorado has the better team? Even with a healthy Draisaitl, the Avs would have won. As long as McD and Draisaitl have to play with that sort of defense and goaltending they have no chance of winning a cup and I´m not 100% sure that Holland is the solution for their problems.

    The Cap

    I don´t believe that that is going to happen, Hronek showed no improvement compared to last year. He looks more like trade bait.

    A tough task. 5 players to sign (incl. Fiala) and only $7.4m in cap space. They could try to move Dumba to free up cap space but that would weaken their D. It´s not an easy challenge.

    Minnesota had this one shot and missed, they are in cap hell for three more years. There´s probably a chance this year with Boldy still on entry level contract and the dead cap "only" at $12.75m but I don´t think they will be relevant for the foreseeable future.

    at least he´s picking good players with his first round picks, unlike Ken Holland...

    2022 Playoffs Thread

    Holland has $7m in cap space and 8 players to sign. Noteable free agents are Puljujärvi and Yamamoto as RFA´s and Kane is UFA. Their offense will be a lot worse without some Holland magic and I doubt he has any. The Avs are a far more complete team and will win the series 4-2. They are a lot closer to become a dynasty than the Oilers. Holland can call himself a lucky b*stard that he inherited that amount of talent but the end product will be a disappointment.
