My ideal roster for next year

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

DISCLAIMER - I realize the many variables in this roster that are incredibly unlikely (Franzen being traded, Nick taking so much less, Parise AND Suter coming here for presumably less than they could get elsewhere, and that's just to name a few...)

With that said, if the stars all aligned and some stardust fell, this is what my ideal 2012-2013 Detroit Red Wings team would be (also note this is not a line thread debate, re-organize those however you'd like):


Gustav Nyquist ($0.875m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Zach Parise ($6.700m)

Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m)

Justin Abdelkader ($1.500m) / Paul Gaustad ($3.000m) / Danny Cleary ($2.800m)

Drew Miller ($0.838m) / Darren Helm ($2.000m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m)

Jan Mursak ($0.550m) / Cory Emmerton ($0.533m)


Nicklas Lidstrom ($4.000m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)

Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Ryan Suter ($6.500m)

Brendan Smith ($0.875m) / Ian White ($2.875m)

Jakub Kindl ($0.883m)


Jimmy Howard ($2.250m)

Joey MacDonald ($0.550m)

Your wish roster is not much different than mine. Only mine has Mule on it instead of Gaustad. Gaustad has value has a 4th line face off guy but for 3 mil? That's too much. For a mil more I will take Mule's 30 goals and hope he can find is playoff form once again. Like all the other Red Wings.
