Gill in Montreal, or even Johnny Oduya in Winnipeg might be possible Those two's names have been thrown around a bit for a D spot.

Again, why do we need to add a dman?

We have 9 guys we can plug in right now.

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.

Holland addressed in an interview before that he wanted to add some depth on the backend. This could be because he knows Stewie won't re-sign here next season.

I've been seeing more and more about Gill. That'd be a good pickup. Big guy, throws his weight around.

I know he said this, but AGAIN WHY DO WE NEED THAT?!?!?!?!?!

Look at the depth chart, we have no shortage.

The only thing the Wings need is a top six forward that will allow us two top lines.

We do have a lot of depth at D, and I agree that we need to add a productive winger. Having Commodore as one of your reserves is a good sign that we are pretty well off. Living in Atlanta, I did see a lot of Thrashers games and Exelby was also a solid regular on their squad, i'm kinda surprised we haven't seen more of him since he's signed here.

Smoke screen? I doubt Holland would come out and say "we want a top six winger plz"

Most likely he puts the word out that he's looking for something generic like D-depth just to receive some phone calls, then BAM!!! we get Vrbata or something.

Big guy who throws his weight around?.. :unsure:
Do you know a different Gill that I am unaware of?..
Gill is definitely a big guy.. but the way he plays he might as well be 5'9".. If people here get pissed at Ericsson then I would hate to see the reaction with that giant pylon in a Wings jersey.

I just got off work and I was watching highlights on NHL net and they said the Red Wings are pursuing Ruutu and have verbally expressed interest in adding him at the deadline. I know it's been mentioned a lot in this thread, but I think this further validates our suspicions, and i'd welcome adding him to our roster.

I think he would be a good addition... I just don't think we are willing to pay the price for him.

There is talk of him fetching the kind of price Hossa got a few years back, because there is so little out there.

I liked the idea of Rutuu when he was the cheap option with a ton of upside.

Another team...

Carter is available. I don't think the Wings can pull him, or do I necessarily want them to...

I remember last year when I said that the Kings got Richards and should have got Carter, and vice versa for the BJ's. Any chance they just straight up flip them now?

The only way I want the Wings going after Dmen, is if they move Stuart first for someone like JVR.

I was just watching That's Hockey on TSN before the Wings game and they mentioned that Visnovsky might be available out of Anaheim.. Not sure if anyone has mentioned this before but it seems like most of the Ducks talk has been around Getz/Perry/Ryan..

I think if the Wings know Stuart wants to be in Cali then it could be a decent move if they could pick up Visnovsky.. I THINK his cap hit is 5.2 or something, which isn't terrible and I believe he still has another year left on his contract, if he could play like he did last year then it could at least soften the blow of having Lidstrom retire.

He's definitely available, which was made especially clear when they re-signed Beauchimen. I wouldn't mind having him here, but Holland has made it clear that he is not trading Stuart.

I just saw an e-something over at the fabulous Vaporware Rumor monger that the Wings "may try to move on Semin" before anybody else. Semin? I merely relayed this to get the juices flowing by saying 'Semin'.



Feel free to laugh, yawn or start your own e4 rumors
http://www.hockeybuz...s-Semin/1/41936

Gill in Montreal, or even Johnny Oduya in Winnipeg might be possible Those two's names have been thrown around a bit for a D spot.


I watched Oduya for a couple seasons here in Jersey. They could do a lot worse in picking up a depth 5-6 defenseman

I think Semin has been forgotten. He might be the best bet to fix our offensive problems on the top two lines.

I just don't think it is going to be cheap. I stand by my list of people who we should not trade.

I just don't think Emmerton draft picks and maybe Sheahan will be enough.

I love Semin's talent level, but his work ethic... ehh. I'm not sure how he'd work out here. It's optimistic to say that he'd follow suit with the rest of our players and really focus, but I'm not so sure it would work that way. Combine that with the (likely high) asking price, and I don't think it's a deal to make.

I completely understand that. I am in the boat that thinks his work ethic is Washington's work ethic.

I live in BC and the Sportsnet pacific panel seems to think that Semin is headed to Detroit. Ive been hearing the "Pavel Datsyuks borderline demigod of Russian hockey status, on ice work ethic, and off ice easy going good nature etc etc is the perfect situtation to turn Semin into the guy his skillset would suggest he should be".

Im not a Semin fan by any means - but if this trade were to happen without giving up too much I'd be pumped initially at least.

I would love this, Visnovsky is probably my favorite non-wing defensemen. The guy had 68 points last season, granted he is 35, but if Lidstrom does decide to leave, Visnovsky could fill that defensive scoring void for a few more seasons.
