DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings made qualifying offers to nine players before Monday’s deadline, retaining their rights when they become restricted free agents Thursday.

In addition to making qualifying offers, as expected, to Darren Helm, Justin Abdelkader, Patrick Eaves, Drew Miller and Derek Meech, the Red Wings also qualified defensemen Sergei Kolosov and Ole-Kristian Tollefsen, forward Jamie Tardif and goaltender Daniel Larsson.

They severed ties with forwards Evan McGrath and Johan Ryno, who were not extended qualifying offers and now are unrestricted free agents.

Surprised to see Meech, and to some degree Tollefsen, on there - but we know Tollefsen isn't coming back. Maybe Meech will be part of a trade of sorts? I don't see the team expecting him to fill the 6th, or 7th slot.

It's just about retaining assets, if he cannot be traded, he will be waived and sent down to GR and if he's claimed, so be it - we're still no worse off than if we had not at least qualified him in the first place...

He will not be on the Red Wings roster come final cut down day...

If Holland can not get a UFA here I can see Meech as the extra player, much like this year, he can play both positions and allows the wings cap space by only needing 22 roster players (I know it is really not allowing cap space, technically).

If Meech were to go I would not be upset, nor if he stayed.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

Good point, but I honestly cannot see Holland NOT adding another veteran, stay at home defenseman for that 3rd pairing... I'd be floored if he didn't as a matter of fact...

Good for Grand Rapids, he finished last season really well.

Pumped to see Kolosov get another contract. :thumbup:

Is this meant to be sarcastic? You do know he'll be in the SEL, right?

I had high hopes for Johan Ryno. Sucks to see him turn out to be a bust.


I'm not surprised to see Meech get an QO. I doubt he'll play much in the NHL, but I like him better than Lebda.

Hopefully we'll be too deep to need him, but an option is better alive then dead until you're 100% certain.

exactly.

I had high hopes for Johan Ryno. Sucks to see him turn out to be a bust.

I'm in the same boat, he had such a great camp and was so big and agile, it's really disappointing that he just couldn't handle the mental rigors of adapting to the NA game and the path it takes to get there...

I don't know why everyone hates on meech? Its not like he ever really gets a chance to play and show what he can do. Im not saying hes going to be awesome or anything but I guess its nice he can play forward if someone goes down.

He's a thousand times better than Ledba and he was serviceable while he was in last season... there's just really no room for him...

Meech had a couple hard working games for us last year... but I think its time he leaves. Its just a QO, it doesn't mean the Wings will sign him or that they even want to. It'd be cool if we could package some assets and do a trade?

I wonder if kenny can convince OKT to come back to detroit to be the 6th d man and let him try to prove himself. OKT is probably just as good as option as anyone on the market that isn't out of the wings price range.

He's already said on the record that he doesn't plan on leaving Modo of the SEL - so it looks like it's just a matter of retaining his rights, in case he changes his mind...

it is nice to have meech who can play defence and forward, but for his career, i hope he goes to atlanta or florida or something like that and play regular minutes with a team. he's earned it.

if meech hit or fight or was good at something like PK or PP he would be useful, but unfortunately he is useless....
