Overrated as of right now, sure...Still better then Wiz.

He was money in the first two rounds until he seperated his shoulder against San Jose.


First, he was never better than ordinary, and second, we don't need a guy coming off a separated shoulder.

He doesn't give us anything we don't already have, while Wiz does. Wiz is a right handed shot, and is physical and gritty. Ehroff is a poor man's Kronwall.

That's the important thing in all this.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

What did Airhead supply during Vancouver's (almost) Cup run?


Still like Errorhoff... or just "the Hoff," better than that GMR. ...but, it'll do for the time being. :cool:

I agree on the right and shot, and sure Wiz is gritty but also pretty bad in the defensive end. Ehrhoff while not stellar is a great first pass defenceman similar to rafalski and can quarterback a pp. Can skate like the wind, and yes maybe is very similar to Kronwall which isn't a bad thing. All i'm saying is Ehrhoff in my mind is the best D out there right now.

Have said it before, but it would bear repeating at this point to quell the hype that surrounds a Stanley Cup Finalist whose rights are being traded around like a two dollar *****:

I would take Ian White at a more affordable price over Ehrhoff.

I think he has more to prove and is worth the investment. Ehrhoff seems bent on a pay day over winning.
Just not enamored to that sentiment. Call me crazy.

Hopefully Wiz realizes he's got a much better chance to win a cup here.

I would rather us not sign either player and not handcuff us to a bad contract for years to come. Sometimes its the moves you don't make.....
Just for the record, the weather today is slightly sarcastic with a good chance of rain.

Ignoring for a second that Eklund is full of crap...

I really feel (and have for some time) that the Wings are likely going to get a top 4 d through trade. Holland won't overpay, and there's only 3 or 4 free agents that could fill a top 4 roll, all of who will want a lot. Regardless of the fact that Wiz is a pretty solid defender, he is NOT worth the 5-5.5m I'm guessing he'll get on the market. He's just the flavor of the day on LGW. Similarly, Ehrhoff isn't worth the 6+ he'll probably end up with from somebody.

We know that Holland will get a top 4 d...he always ensures that the Wings are a contender, and with our current d we clearly are not. We'll likely be saying goodbye to some picks/prospects and quite possibly Filppula (or hopefully Hudler, but that's wishful thinking).

Holland should just re-sign Ericsson and sign UFA Ed Jovanovski and call it a day. Just no NMC so he can use them as trade bait at trade deadline.

Just beef up the top 6 and get a good backup (or maybe Larsson). Wings will just need to win games 5-3, 6-5, 8-6 or whatever... I'm fine with that.

I know I'll get flak for this...but why not go for Richards? Ask him to take a little less money than what he could get from Toronto or NYR for a chance at the Cup. He's already said that his biggest consideration is being on a contender, so it's worth a shot.

6-7M for Richards, 5M for Wisniewski/Ehrhoff, 1M for a backup goalie. I think it's worth it.

He already has a Cup. And though he noted that he only wants to go to a contender, this doesn't mean that he'll need to take less money. There are many contenders in the league who have more than enough cap space to accommodate him.

I totall agree on this. Smith will be ready next year at the latest. No need for both Hoff and wiz. Richards at 7.2 or lower would bolster our team bigtime. Take some scoring pressure off z and data. The better teams like sj have 3 top guys that makes it impossible to contain everyone all the time, that's why they end up on top IMO.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I'd be alright with Richards, as long as we don't lock ourselves up with a 5 or 6 or 20 year contract. I take it Hudler's the odd man out, in that situation?

He said that he hasn't had a 'taste' of the cup for too long, and that it's 'been too long since I've won the Stanley Cup'. So yeah, his main focus is winning the cup again, regardless of whether or not he's won it before. Plus he recently said that he wants to go to a big hockey market because he didn't like walking into the empty seats in Dallas and Tampa. I think Detroit would be a perfect fit for him.

I love Ehrhoff and think he would be a great fit for the team. He's offensively gifted and the only thing I wish he had was a right handed shot. He's got a pretty healthy bill too and that's awfully attractive. Call me superstitious but I feel like Wiz would be injury prone if he came to motown :/

It's like 80's Edmonton all over again. Defense be damned, we'll just score more goals, and hope "Grant Howard" bails us out with a few saves on all the breakaways we give up.




I do actually like the idea of going after Richards. Our offense sure wouldn't suffer from him being here. Maybe go the "affordable" route with defense, maybe Jovo, Montador, and Big Rig. And then go into the season with the idea of making a trade before the deadline for a higher end guy, or someone we would like, long term. Then next summer, try to land the big fish that we will most likely need.
