In all seriousness...this is what I'm expecting next season. For some reason, I think we're going to get both Parise and Suter. I hope that there will be some additional moves to bring more size and toughness to the bottom six, but who knows. Also, it sounds like Joey Mac will be in GR.

I assume by 'more than once' you mean exactly once. Pro tip: if 20 reporters write the same quote down it doesn't count as having been said 20 times by the original speaker.


No. I've seen/heard it more than once, and not from the same interview. Thanks though.

Also the Franzen experiment of wasting Datsyuk's time needs to be over. I never want to see 93 on the ice with 13 anymore unless it is a powerplay maybe.

Jugding by our needs Suter > Parise >>>>> else elite talent

If Konopka and/or Neil are avaiable there is no I repeat no excuse to not sign them and try to get Brandon Prust., heck I wouldn't even mind John Scott he is a decent skater for an enforcer and one of the toughest hombres in the game.

No, you aren't expecting anything this summer based on what you posted. And that right there is silly.

Silly?..How so?

As much as I want both Parise and Suter, I have a sick feeling they might both go to Carolina. Wings TOP priority should be Suter though, then maybe go after Semin, who could be had for a bit cheaper IMO.

If Lids retires, the Wings should go after both Suter and Wideman.
When you lose, say little. When you win, say less.

You think we need defense more than scoring right now?

Drake,

We clearly need Parise and Suter. I don't think anyone here would disagree. The thing is, Ken Holland might.

This team has needed to get bigger and tougher for the better part of a decade - and even now, Holland is giving no indication that he even believes it's an issue, let alone something he must address.

Do I think Holland will make a hard push for Parise and for Suter? Yes. Do I think he'll push as hard as he possibly can (i.e. sign them both)? I'm not entirely confident he will.


The difference now is that we have stars entering their twilight years and just failed hard in the playoffs. Why should Holland care what people say about the Wings needing to be younger/bigger/tougher in the summers of 06, 07, 08, 09 or even 2010? This summer is obviously very different because the successful playoff runs just didn't happen but everyone is another year older. Holland is aware of these things and must know that a strikeout now is not acceptable unless he's prepared to go straight to rebuild mode.

What about Dustin Penner? How he is playing right now may not warrant the big price tag, but I do like his grit after watching the kings this post season.


Penner's got a ton of big question marks beside his name with regards to commitment, fitness and compete level.

Don't call me a psychic....but I think we're giong to end up seeing something very close this.

FORWARDS
Zach Parise ($7.000m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Evander Kane ($5.000m)
Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Jordan Staal ($4.000m) / Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m)
Wayne Simmonds ($1.750m) / Martin Hanzal ($3.100m) / Dustin Brown ($3.175m)
Travis Moen ($1.500m) / Paul Gaustad ($2.300m) / Cal Clutterbuck ($1.400m)
DEFENSEMEN
Shea Weber ($7.500m) / Oliver E.-Larsson ($1.750m)
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Ryan McDonagh ($1.300m)
Brendan Smith ($0.875m) / Luke Schenn ($3.600m)
GOALTENDERS
Jimmy Howard ($2.250m)
Anders Lindback ($0.715m)

Just a few simple trades/signings/offer sheet and we'll have a team that is built to get out of the first round.


A few simple moves huh? You've got 14 new players on the team with this lineup.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."
