MLIVE.COM: Ansar Khan reports the Detroit Red Wings have inquired about former Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Lukas Krajicek, suggesting he'd be a more affordable signing than Willie Mitchell. Khan suggests the Wings might be better re-signing Andreas Lilja but he's seeking $1.5 million while the Wings are reportedly offering $1 million.

Wouldn't mind at all for the money.

yes. go with lilja or kindl who should get a shot.
if krajicek is the only affordable signing, then that's a sign. no. if the wings can't get mitchell, don't settle for a hack.

What's the point? a big non-physical defenseman to play in the 6th spot is exactly what we DONT need.

As Mors said, this would be a waste of time. We need a physical 6th defenseman, and not a tall skinny puss.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Krajicek actually has been known to throw some pretty nice hipchecks, though not often enough

Sounds like he has decent puck moving skills too. Hehe... welcome to the team Lukas.



EDIT: Lol@ all the negs. As if the Wings don't covet puck moving defensemen. If he has ANY puck moving skill at all the Wings are automatically interested by default.

Totally wouldn't be surprised to see him here if he truly does have any puck moving skill.

No thanks. Krajicek isnt good, physical, or mean. He isnt a good option as a #6, if we cant get Mitchell, I'd just bring back Lilja.

I saw him play a lot in Vancouver and he seemed to be either amazing or just horrible....you never knew which Krajicek you were going to get...

No. The guy couldn't even stay in the Tampa Bay Lightning line-up.

Agreed, he doesn't fill our needs whatsoever... I'd rather roll with Meech on the roster than Krajicek at this point to be honest and just play both Ericsson and Kindl daily, as 5/6 and Meech as the #7...

With that said, as I've said all along, in terms of adding another defenseman, I want them in this order, or none by this point:

1. Mitchell (if he came at a huge discount, which is unlikely, so this one is a pipedream and can probably be omitted... I just have him as 1, because if he IS available, come on...)
2. Hnidy
3. Lilja
4. Exelby

If one of those 4 isn't the #6 out of what's left, I'd rather just roll with what we have, unless a trade can be made to fill the role - I still think a Ritola, Meech and pick for Mark Stuart in Boston isn't out of the realm of possibility, as Boston needs to cut cap and fill out a roster...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Agree with everything said here. And there has been talk that Mitchell is down to 4 teams, Detroit is one of them, and they all dont have significant cap space to offer him a huge contract so its not that huge of a pipe dream
