Changes in the offseason

Recommended Posts

one thing id like to see change next season is less cycling of the bottom line guys. everyone agrees that mursak should be a regular and so should abby. With miller in, i see him being very unhappy sitting again this season, it was an awkward situation last season and would only get worse. if richards isn't signed i see us grabbing a top 6 winger and still having this problem with the bottom line. who would be a better option for the 14th spot?

Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Tomas Holmstrom ($1.875m)

Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Brad Richards ($7.200m) / Johan Franzen ($3.954m)

Todd Bertuzzi ($1.937m) / Darren Helm ($0.912m) / Daniel Cleary ($2.800m)

Jan Mursak ($0.550m) / Justin Abdelkader ($0.787m) / Patrick Eaves ($0.900m)

/ Cory Emmerton ($0.533m)

14th forward you say?

Here is my roster, obviously we'd have to send something, (possibly Emmerton or Mursak) which may open up a injury spot for Drapes, also if Jagr decides to sign, dump Hudler. I figure if we have the cap space we might as well keep Huds and try to get him going right away unless a better player is available.

White is the best option, and really he should have been the best option from the beginning. Save for the right hand part.

ASSETS: Moves the puck with precision out of the defensive zone. Is an above-average skater and puck-handler. Owns a big shot from the point.

FLAWS: Lacks ideal size for the NHL, especially in front of his own net. Can go into offensive slumps from time to time.

CAREER POTENTIAL: Mobile, yet diminutive defenseman.

So the Wings have added 2 d men,backup goalie's on the way,but we are still one depth scoring winger short in my eyes.

Wanted Laich,Ryder or Jokinen but they are already locked so what about Vinny Prospal?

I know he's 36,but he can play and for Bert/Homer's money wouldn't mind him see in the Wings sweater :cool:

Holland on getting a backup:

The market for goalies is pretty picked over, Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said. We’re comfortable with Chris Osgood if we have to do it.
I have gotten calls from teams, looking to trade a goaltender, Holland said. I need to do something and I probably will this week.

Also, on the offseason in general:

We like our team, but we’re ready to make another move or two—whether it’s a signing or a trade—to make our team better this summer, Holland said.

I think the roster is probably about as good as last year, but losing in the 2nd round isn't the goal. It's good to hear Kenny's not done.
