    10/28 Welp GDT - Stars @ Red Wings - 5:00 PM ET

    Thought they had a strong third period.
  2. Stevie Y transitioned the team from the Deadthings to our beloved RedWings back in the day. History will repeat itself when we get rid of Holland once and for all.
  3. Holland has set the bar so low anyone will look like a champ. I’ll once again be cheering for Stevie Y
  4. Some of you deserve Holland and his downward trajectory. Every year is Groundhog Day and your happy with his do nothing youth movement smokescreen. You are achieving the low bar being set and are happy to keep those lowering the bar in place.

    The Wings sucked last year because their defense couldn't play defense not because AA couldn't. He's got a higher ceiling than only 3-4 guys on the team, his trade value is higher and he's just a better player. Not once last year did I turn on the television to watch any member of our defense and it likely won't happen again this year. I don't understand the logic in anyone saying they'd rate Howard or any member of our defense above him. We've got a good young core at Forward and have done nothing to address the gaping hole on defense. If the argument is lets trade AA or some other talent to get a defenseman sure lets do it but lets not act like any of these role players and mid-level talent is anything close to Larkin, Mantha, AA or Zadina. AA is a special talent and I think he'll have a breakout year, glad we resigned him.

    Our two netminders struggle with mediocrity, have a hard time believing you aren’t joking. so if I gave you a clean slate and said keep your best talent you’d keep Howard? Really?

    I tend to agree. He's #4 or #5 in my book. If you had a clean slate and listed guys you wanted going forward to rebuild his name would fall 4 or 5 and that's where I view him. Larkin, Mantha, Zadina, AA. 12th best? What 4 defensemen would you take over AA? I can't think of one I'd keep over him. You guys are awfully harsh on him. He's about ready to bloom. We complain about offense and scoring then complain he can't play defense. Maybe if we had real defensemen on this team we could let our offense play offense.

    Loved the Dailey signing last year and like the Green signing this year. Our Defense is flat terrible and anything we can get we should. I'd rather see some assets traded for a real Defenseman to lead the blueline but we've all been waiting for that trade for years and it never comes. With our defensive talent I fail to see why anyone wouldn't think this was a no brainer.

    The best I've felt about this team in a long while. I'm no Kenny fan but glad he took the talent that fell to him.

    Yeah have a feeling Hughes is the pick no matter who is left on the board...not my choice.

    Totally agree this team needs a high-end talent infusion. Love the list and the thought...Bouchard and Wahlstrom for me.

    Official 2018 Off Season *Rebuild* Thread

    Unfortunately this has been quite a few years of the same thing. I really always thought the Wings held themselves to a higher standard and were driven to win cups. Their decisions and the fans complacency is bringing this storied franchise more in-line with the Lions than a winning organization. We need a change at the top and someone with a vision or plan of where we are headed. We have entered rebuild mode and will remain there so long as the leadership can hide behind it. Isn't Hughes a much smaller guy than Bouchard? I'm really hoping they'd have a reason to take Hughes other than he's a local guy.
