    News From Around the NHL *Mod warning page 75*

    It's not uncommon for a player to pass through waivers and still have trade value as a value add or due to improved play, signs of promise, etc. Which is exactly my point... he's an asset we are completely mismanaging... he should be playing somewhere AHL or NHL in order to gauge what we have OR as a showcase to bolster his trade value. Sitting in Taxi-Squad purgatory isn't accomplishing that. or anything really.

    At 32, if we we're to resign him... 3 years max term. 1.25 max dollars at 3 years. I'd be more inclined to go 2 years at 1.5 per season. Falling in love with and guys like this is exactly what's hampered the rebuild here... fat contracts for easily replaceable players.... We are overflowing with recent examples.... Abby, Samuelsson, Ericsson, Cleary, etc, etc. let someone else over pay for underperformance. On an unrelated note... WTF are we doing with Svech. At this point are we actively trying to destroy any trade value he may have? Not to mention any chance he may have at an NHL career... The guy needs playing time somewhere, for the love of god he's got to bring more to the table than a scrub like Frans Nielsson. Let the guy prove it.

    With all due respect I think that it comes down to homer bias, not calling you out, but fans in general... we know the players and observe these players with the same sort of objectivity parents view their children with. They are ours, so we value them beyond their objective worth. I'd trade Glendenning in a heartbeat and I feel we can get another player with a similar profile in FA, heck we may be able to get the same player back in FA and add a late 2nd or early 3rd round pick in the process.

    Meh, we can get a new reclamation project in FA this summer... sell high on Ryan. Glendenning is a 4th liner... therefore I'm indifferent to his presence.

    I thought our poweplay is our enforcer? Comparable players can be had on the cheap in FA. I'd moved virtually everyone on this team st this point.

    @krsmith17 how's Zadina looking so far this season? Are the nets filled yet? Asking for a friend.

    2021 Off-Season (Too Soon?)

    That's a classic NHL solution isn't it... acknowledge that your current system screwed a team multiple times (surprise, surprise Detroit) then go out of your way to "fix" that problem with a solution designed to F@#$ that same team and it's fan base in a new and exciting way. I love hockey and the Wings, but I'm barely hanging on... if this scenario were to play out, I think that would finish off my fandom.

    Danny Dekyser WAIVED

    I'm guessing this is to make him taxi squadable.

    Erik Karlsson

    How glad are we that the Wings didn't trade for him a couple of years ago like some folks here advocated for.

    What are my bad takes? Zadina? Larkin being a 2nd line center asked to play a 1st roll on a bad team? I think you'll find a lot of people share those takes... A take you don't agree with isn't automatically bad

    Seattle Expansion Draft: Who you pick?

    Realistically we should protect fewer players than we're allowed and invite Seattle to take a second pass at our unprotected players. We don't have many ED eligible players worth keeping.

    @krsmith17 and @ChristopherReevesLegs have an on going feud... that's about it.

    Calling people dummies because they see through your BS eh. Very endearing.
