What a retard. Why do that to a guy that has absolutely gave it his all his whole career. Pathetic to see that happen to someone like Homer who busts his balls every night.

it's a business, we waited to long with Maltby, then Draper, and now Homer, who will we put on waivers for him? Seriously we appreciate and loyalty goes as far as giving him a job even after hockey. Are they supposed to wait until his ass is being pulled around in a wheel chair before they cut ties? He obviously doesn't have it anymore, thanks for the memories but it's a business.

I'd probably cut off a pinky or something if we could Doan, Iggy, and Stewart this off season. You want hitting, fighting, leadership and intensity!!!!

There is more to come on what Holland should do this offseason, but Ive must pace myself there is a lot of it! First and foremost give Helm a raise, because the Wings are not the same playoff team without him.

I'd love to see who you'd think would be good to replace him.

Here's my offseason plan up front...

Fil------------Z--------NyQuist
Mule-------Pavel------Parise
Cleary-----Helm------Bert
Prust-----Konopka----Eaves

Holmstrom (this organization won't force him out)
Miller, Abdelkader (maybe one or both are expendable depending on Eaves' health and Homer's decision?)
Mursak, Emmerton (trade/fight for spot/waiver casualty)


The blueline is too muddled at this point. I really don't know which way to lean on Lidstrom's decision. And I highly doubt we have a realistic chance of signing Suter.

?-White
Kronwall-
Smith-Ericsson

Quincey (probably coming back; wasn't that impressive, but we gave up a 1st for him and he's still young)
Kindl (another year of 7th D-man or trade bait?)

And who's back-up?

Howard
?

I know he's an RFA and we won't get him, but I'd love to have Jamie McGinn on this team. What do you guys think?

I sat there watching the handshake and my gut feeling is that Nick is done. He's 42 and clearly his body doesn't heal the way it used to. He went scoreless in the postseason to boot. I think Nick is going to see that as a sign he's not what he used to be and he'd rather not come back and be even less than what he was. Stuart is gone. My guess is he signs with the Ducks. I think Holmstrom is gone too. He was barely used on the PP and that, truly, was where he was most valuable. At this point he's useless if he's not being used on the PP. The bottom line is that the league has caught up to and figured this team out. Change HAS to happen. Management needs to realize the team isn't good enough to win a Cup anymore. With the uncertainty of the next CBA, it's hard to see them going after Parise and Suter. Suter, IMO, is the more important of the 2 if Nick retires. If he comes back, they need to switch the focus to Parise.

Take Scotty Bowman out of the equation, Holland would of just been another GM. He gets way too much credit and not enough blame. What did he think was going to happen with this team?


Holland's cup in 2008 was not because of Scotty Bowman.

Jim Nill will probably not take over the reigns and Yzerman is in Tampa. Neither of those are realistic choices (don't forget Yzerman as GM had a 60 goal scorer on his roster this season and still couldn't find a way into the playoffs).

I'd be pretty annoyed if Holmstrom came back next year. Sucks to say that, but he is no longer capable of playing a top 6 role, and he can't play an effective checking role. I love Homer, but it's time he hangs them up.

It seems clear to me that Stuart is gone.

Obviously, Lids' decision will dictate how we go about remodeling our defense in free agency. Hopefully he comes back, but it seems up in the air.

Hudler is gonna want a steady raise, and I could care less if we let him walk. I wouldn't mind trying out someone new for the top 6.

I think the Bertuzzi signing was extremely stupid. I like Bertuzzi and am not one to bash him, but he brings nothing to this team besides crafty shootout victories. He had zero points in the playoffs and was minus 5. Also, if it were possible I would really enjoy seeing Franzen leave this team, just can't stand him anymore.

Someone on another board I frequent made an interesting comment that led to the debate of: did the Wings sign the wrong player in 2009 (Hossa vs Franzen)?

This is a good tracker
http://www.spotrac.c...ree-agents/nhl/
By the looks of available players it seems a good idea that we get parise, suter, and Jason arnott. Arnott is a right hander and doesn't seem to mind floating around the central division and he's a physical presence.

Bertuzzi - datsyuk - parise
Filpulla - Zetterberg - Cleary
Holmstrom - Arnott - franzen
Abdelkader - Helm - Miller
Eaves/holmstrom
Lidstrom - white
Suter - Kronwall
Ericsson - Quincey
Smith/Quincey
I don't know that the salary cap is breeched by this lineup, but looks pretty good to me
