I agree 100% with you... Wings are going to go after Richards hard i bet

While I think it would be a decent move but I am still concerned about our Defense in a way.

Get into what?


Trading for negotiating rights.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

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?

Babchuk, Bogosian and Zherdev then make a play for one of the big UFA D's next season when Lids will hang em up.

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.

Who, Bobby Ryan? Bit of a reach I think mate. ;)

Ken Holland: He’s (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, he’s a puck hound.

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.
