Or No Kovie. Keep Stuart. Get Hudler. And have abit more cash left.


Tomas Holmstrom ($1.500m) Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m)

Jiri Hudler (2.875m) Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) Johan Franzen ($3.95m)

Jimmy Howard ($0.717m) Chris Osgood ($1.417m)


ROSTER: 23; PAYROLL: $55.563m; CAP ROOM: $1.237m BONUSES: $0.000m



So....
Kovalchuk, Lebda? (Ericsson second pairing)
or
Hudler, Stuart and 500k cap space? (Ericsson 3rd pairing)


Enjoy another year in Russia Jiri.


IMO, Hossa never fit this team. (and still potted 40) I think Kovalchuk would fit perfectly.

I just don't see Kovalchuk playing for less of a cap hit than what he's getting now. He doesn't seem to be the type interested in being part of a team unless he's the focal point.

With all the extentions signed lately, the UFA and RFA class next year borders on awful.

I don't know about anyone else but I want Lils to stay for at least next year. He's such a stabilizing force on that third pair. I feel like that is a must.

However, I also think Ericsson and Kindl should play consistent minutes/games. You don't want to trade away prospects like them but at the same time it isn't doing them any good if they're just rotting away in the press box. I wouldn't be all that surprised if the Wings traded one of them.

Going with the theme of getting a veteren who hasn't won it yet, what do you guys think of offering Keith Tkachuk a contract next season? He's only at $2.55M this year, so maybe give him $3MM to come here for a year? As long as Lidstrom cooperates with his salary, we could get him for $3MM and still sign another solid forward....

Wings will NEED a Right Wing who shoots right....Bertuzzi & Williams will be gone.... to play with Z & Flip on the second line and for power play. The three top choices are Lee Stempniak, Maxim Afinogenov or Colby Armstrong. Afinogenov is a right wing but shoots left. My primary choice in Stempniak.


2010-2011 Detroit Red Wings
FORWARDS
Pavel Datsyuk — $6,700,000
Henrik Zetterberg — $6,083,333

Valtteri Filppula — $3,000,000
Daniel Cleary — $2,800,000
Kris Draper — $1,583,333

* Nicklas Lidstrom — $4,500,000
Brad Stuart — $3,750,000
Niklas Kronwall — $3,000,000
* Andreas Lilja — $1,250,000
Jonathan Ericsson — $900,000
Jakub Kindl — $883,333
* Derek Meech — $525,000
GOALTENDERS
Chris Osgood — $1,416,666
Jimmy Howard — $716,666
ROSTER SIZE 23
SALARY CAP $56,800,000
PAYROLL $56,112,876
BONUSES $0
CAP SPACE $687,124

Can remove Meech and have only 22 players and more cap space (~1.2 mil). 13 forwards, 7 defencemen (instead of 8), 2 goalies. I favor more cap space for trade deadline deals.

^^ Colby Armstrong! Stempniak is a softy and Afinogenov is past it. Armstrong has a toughness about him and has really matured. No question if it were between those 3 it needs to be him.

wouldn't the wings be looking to add scoring? I think Tkachuk would outscore any of the guys you two mentioned.... just my opinion...

First of all Keith Tkachuk is an old goat. Secondly, he is left winger. Bertuzzi and Williams are BOTH right wingers. And Williams plays on the PP....right-handed shot. If both are gone obviously the Wings would need a right-winger. There are NOT too many right wingers who are UFA who can score. Colorado has a pair ..... Stewart & Mueller.... but they both will be RFA... and I don't think the Wings want to give up any draft picks.

Armstrong (27 pts - 15 goals)- 28 yo, Stempniak (41 pts -23 goals) -27 yo and Afinogenov (57 pts - 22 goals)-31 yo will ALL finish with more points than Tkachuk (28 pts - 12 goals). I wish peeps would look at the stats before they post. You must be Tkachuk's agent.... tell him to retire... LOL!

Wings have enough checkers.... they need a SCORER who can skate and would do well with Filppula and Z. And if you are going to dole out $3 mil or more you want some younger legs with potential for upside not someone who is on the downside of their career.

Id love to see Mats Zucarello Aassen playing for the wings. Yes he is small, but he is such an awsome player, he already prooved himself on small rinks during the olympics where he even had a massive hit on Chara.

For those of you who dont know him: http://www.coppernbl...mats-zuccarello
