Depending on what lidstrom does with his contract, if he does stay that is, we can definately get a player that can contribute. Here is a list of players i would love to see in the winged wheel.

Thomas Plekanec(most likely not because hes emerged as a decent player)
Mathew lombardi(his speed is great and he has hands)
Raffi torres- Tough player, works pretty hard, he would be an upgrade to bert IMO, so if i had the choice i take raffi over him. But he has been injured quite a bit.

Maybe somehow if we snag one of those players, with hudler returning, we can be a dominate team.

Ive wanted torres on the team before he got traded to buffalo... he is gritty and can score...one of those guys that Detroit needs, but it would need to be at the right price.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Dump Williams, pick up Latendresse. (GL is an RFA)

Dump Lebda and Meech, and pick up Jack Johnson. (Though JJ has one more year under contract with LA)
lighten up people, it's the internet!

I've seen a few people on here mention Johnson and I'm not really sure why. Granted I havn't seen much of him, but his numbers are certainly not encouraging.

Year GP G A P +/- PIM
2007-2008 Kings 74 3 8 11 -19 76
2008-2009 Kings 41 6 5 11 -18 46
2009-2010 Kings 80 8 28 36 -15 48

I realise the Kings are not the best Defensive team out there, and this would obviously contribute to his poor +/- but even so, is he really going to be what the wings need?

Like I said, I havn't seen him play much myself so perhaps the numbers are misleading. Can someone give me some upsides?

...if he's a feasible (affordable) replacement for meech and lebda then I guess we wouldn't be any worse off.

Ugh, it's because he played at U of M, somehow that makes him a great player in the NHL.........NOT! He is big Height: 6-1 Weight: 225lbs, if you call that big, & young, but that is about all he has going for him. There are much better D out there to be had than Jack Johnson.

Id like to see a right handed shot, i think Frolov could pot 30 goals or so playing with Datsyuk.

Lombardi & Torres would be good. Plek will be asking too much money + we don't need another playmaker.

YES YES YES minus the jack johnson thing but this guy has been on my wish list for a long time he was sweet when he played for the wild he needs to be in a winged wheel next season for sure.

I think Lombardi would be a good pick up. He's so god damn fast, one of the few that might give Helm a run for his money

We don't need to sign any free agents.

Kirk Maltby is coming back healthy next year, so that's our free agent acquisition. :yowza:



Sorry, but that's what Holland always says at the trade deadline.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

That just proves that it's not who you are, but who you know. :hehe:


Holland may want to sign that kid just to keep Lidstrom happy.

Wings need to get a right handed goal scorer who's willing to take a hometown discount.

Sign a longterm deal with Ilya Kovalchuk (people will say we aren't going to sign him)

He's 27 years old.

Sign him for 15 Years/ 75m
5m Cap Hit

Assuming the cap goes up 1m dollars from multiple sources...and

Lidstrom resigns for 3.5m/1 year deal...

Heres our roster:

Maybe Lidstrom wouldn't want his 16 year old son an ocean away from the rest of the family?

Guess it happens though, so who knows.
