I have a really strong belief that either Chara, Jovo or Redden will be in a Wings uniform next year. Question is which one...who would you take and who do you think the Wings will make the strongest push for? Is there a possiblilty of landing two of them and what do you think they will fetch on the open market?

IMO, its Chara or Jovo I would love to see. Jovo being a local boy from Windsor, ON (across the river from Detroit for those who are not familiar with the area) I think has the strongest chance of coming home.

Jovo.... yowza.gif He can hit, move the puck and can keep the peace-if you get my drift, just ask Deadmarsh wink.gif . Perfect mix of physical play and finesse. Chara and Redden will stay in Ontario, but don't forget Witt either

I'd take Redden, I feel he is the most consistent out of the bunch and can do all of the things we need.

I'd take Redden. Don't think he'll go anywhere though. Jovanovski has become a defensive liability rather than the force he used to be in Florida, but I'll take him over Schneider of course.

If Lidstrom leaves, I so want Redden. The guy is smooth and steady, just like Nick. Personally, I wouldn't mind Jovanovski at all, but the problem is, he is awfully overrated and will likely be able to get up near five or six million, and that's just too much for a player I consider to be a number 2 defenceman. Chara is almost certainly going to get near league maximum.

Redden is Norris bound, we would be beyond lucky to aquire him.

I'd take Chara just for the simple fact that he can pick guys like McCabe up and toss them around.

Chara or Redden.

Jovo hits, sure, and contributes offensively. But so do Redden and Chara.

What he doesn't do that the other two do is play strong defense.

I'll take Redden any day.

I love Ed Jovanovski, one of my personal favorites, but I think Redden is the better of the three, next question?

Most definitely Redden. That guy is finesse on D. Smart with the puck, great passes, great shot, mobile, pretty good skater. He can be physical when he wants to be as well. He's got some size, strength on him. If he'd use it more it be great. But yeah..I'd definitely pick him over Jovo and Chara. Ed, and Zdeno are great too, but I think Wade would fit best into the Wings system.

Lucky enough to see all the Senators game.. did you happen to see
the 4th forward out there last night? Redden? Wow, 2G 2A. But I don't
think we need that type of offensive D-man right now.

Imagine Chara and Lidstrom on Line 1 D. Geez.

Chara's offense is coming around lately too. I've always thought his point shots were rockets, and hardly ever miss the net, but lately he's been skating down on the rush VERY well.

Kind of funny seeing that humongous beast skating in on goal.. but he would be the guy whom Hatcher SHOULD have been here.

(not comparing the two.. please don't flame on me)

Um Charra because she still has a nice rack and plays a mean spanish guitar -- hootchie cootchie coo!

My answer is Redden.

i'd take chara since the man is a beast--one of the most physically punishing d-men out there. he'd be a greater physical force on the blueline than anyone the wings have had in the last 5 years.

i don't think we'll get any of the three. the cost would be justifiably too steep for chara and redden, and i think jovocop will command prohibitively more than he's worth.

Redden, because he's the smaller and faster player of the three.
