I'd almost want to gamble on a guy like Afinogenov.


Ahhhh, that's not a bad idea either. Lots of speed, decent shot, lots to prove. Maybe he's our Cleary 2.0

LOL. We lost Huds, Sammy, Kop (dont give a s*** about him), and Hossa and you think we should just replace them with inexperienced GR guys. In fact, why not just replace the whole team with GR guys? They're younger right? They'll easily make up for all the goals we've lost right? You-Are-Nuts.


Now I know why you always get your ass beat when you go to hockey games.. Nobody likes you.

Lets let just lose some of our AHL guys like we did Quincey. You-Are-Nuts. btw, who are you going to sign (with our little cap) that can score 40 goals? (making up Hudler and Sammy's loss in goals) -- That's right, nobody. So guess what squirt, there is more to hockey than just scoring goals. There's this phrase that you should learn, it'll help teach you a little hockey knowledge too, though you seem helpless... "Defense wins championships" -- and Wings will be the top 3 in the league in Defense.

You're not only a *****, you're ignorant.

Bell has the skill, he has the size, he has the toughness. It's just he needs a team that will give him the chance to make or break his career. I think it's a long shot for Detroit to take a look at Bell, But i wholeheartedly hope they do, Bell isn't going to fight the way Drake did 2 years ago or Downey did, But he'll be able to fill Drakes roll as the player who will deliver retribution with a devestating hit.

I really want Roy btw.


Really? I think Bell has the ability to fight better then Drake. He's much bigger at 6'4" and isnt scared to go with some of the smaller heavies. I'll agree he is no Downey when it comes to throwing down though.

What an awful off-season.


How is this Awful?

Hossa - rental player
Kopecky - terrible
Conklin - no future with team
samuelsson - streaky, wanted more money than his worth
Hudler - would be a loss, but would be able to find a suitable replacement via free agency

Trust me, the sky isn't falling.

It will be interesting to see how Kenny responds. Does he go after a couple of grinders for the 3rd/4th line? Or does he try and trade for a goal scorer? Which dman does he trade to get some more Cap space...Lilja, Lebda or Meech? Maybe he signs some dirt cheap forwards and keeps the Cap space and tries to make a trade for Kovalchuk at the trade deadline? Kenny has some options here.

Kotalik isf****** GARBAGE. There's a reason people here in Buffalo rejoiced when he was traded and, coincidentally, has NOT been offered a contract to stay in Edmonton.

Mark Bell? Are youf****** kidding me? He's finished.

I'm not saying Mark Bell is our saviour or anything like that. He obviously won't replace the goal scoring we lost with hudler if he goes but it would be nice to have a guy like that. And who knows on the wings he could turn into a force and surprise some people.

Haha, someone obviously got majorly butt hurt from my posting. Are you finished or would you like to cry some more? Ahl guys aren't going to make up for the amount of goals we have lost. Also, you're obviously a bandwagon 12 year old who started watching when the playoffs began, (backed up by your reg. date) cause if you watched the wings at all during the regular season, you'd kno our defense was absolute s*** and its not gonna miraculously be the best defense in the league the following season. I agree its gonna be hard to make up the lost goals, but assuming all our AHL guys will make up for it, well, THAT'S ignorant. Get a clue moron. Anyway, move along now kiddo, leave the talking to the adults.

Lol, and now I ALWAYS get in fights at hockey games huh? I guess you determined that based on, oh, one bad experience I had in Anaheim? You truly are a moron. Oh and dude, let me know how you fair on a 1 on 5 situation. I guarantee it'd be a lot worse than me.

Holland is signing defensemen for GRAND RAPIDS and DEPTH. Not for the NHL roster.

And when the wings play like crap and the trade deadline is too late to make a playoff push?

stranger things have happened.. we lost a s*** TON of goal producing.. our D will not suddenly be exponentially better.

Trade deadline acquisition or not, this team will not struggle to make the playoffs. The Wings will have home ice in the first round and i am confident that we can win the division with the team we have right now. Plus our D doesn't need to be "exponentially" better, they just need to be a bit better.

Trust me, the sky isn't falling.


The wings lose 82 goals, 86 assists in 3 players, a total of 168 points. While gaining no one to make up for them.. Yes the wings have great prospects but i tell you now those prospects arent going to make up for 3 top 6 forwards including a super star forward. Not to mention a proven solid back up goalie. The sky isnt falling but you can't say its for the better.

The only possible postives i see from losing these 3 guys, is if next season is going to be a "re-building" season, by giving prospects much needed time to get expierence in the NHL. I'd be happy if the wings can sign a proven NHLer who has the ability to put up atleast 35 points, with decent defensive play.

Perhaps you missed it last season but he suffured what was likely a career ending injury by severing his Achilles tendon.

It is possible that Lang may not make a full recovery from his injury.

A ton of the names that are being tossed around could be interesting, but they could also be big flops
I think it all comes down to price when it comes to a signing in the off-season.

I'm not afraid of starting the season with some of the youngsters up with team.
I know it's not something we're used to... but I think we better be prepared for it.

Patience is going to key. Kenny can make a bigger splash at the trade-deadline when teams are more desperate to shed salary.

Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.
