@NHLexpertpicks
Mike Knuble wants to finish his career in Detroit: 'Detroit would be a nice story since I was drafted there. Ill make no secret about that'.


I've always liked Knuble.. but I am not sure if there is room for another average forward on the roster..

He had a bit of an off year last year but has performed pretty consistently in the past so maybe an option if the Wings strike out on Ryan, Doan and Semin..

theres just no room and pretty sure they would give that spot to holmstrom over knuble.

breaking it down.


dats, z, franzen, filppula are 4 for sure of top 6

nyquist, brunner (babs said awhile ago he will start in top 6 for what its worth), bert, sammy, cleary could all be in top 6 or bottom 6... on bubble

helm, abs (if re-signed), miller, eaves, mursak, emmerton, tootoo + 3 of the 5 bubble players would be a whopping 10 players for 6 positions.

lines id prefer to start

nyquist datsyuk brunner
filppula zetterberg franzen
cleary helm sammy
bert abs tootoo / miller / eaves / mursak / emmerton

first line is uber talented... maybe wont work long term but if they click, look out. i feel with the contract tootoo signed (1.9 mill) that he will be in the line-up more often then not... if we intend on keeping "everyone", nyquist and brunner could be sent down which to me would be nonsense as i feel they are two of our more talented forwards at this point but given their 2way contracts.. it is possible.

say we keep what we have and cant make any moves

cleary datsyuk sammy
filp zberg franzen
bert helm eaves
miller abs tootoo emmerton / mursak

kronwall white
quincey ericcson
kindl smith

howard
monster

22 players total... could add a depth defensemen as well to round it out



no matter how you slice it... knuble doesnt fit

No. We got no room for another bottom-6 forward. Even if we had, we would resign Homer as DangleDangleBeach said.

If Kenny deals Flip, Nyquist and a 1st to get Yandle then there might be room...

Cleary-Dats-Mule
Brunner-Z-Sammy
Knuble-Helm-Bert
Eaves-Abs-Toots
Miller, Mursak

Yandle-White
Kronner-Quincey
Ericsson-Smith
Kindl

Howard-Monster
Jordan Tootoo will wreck shop.

We need someone like Parise that can penetrate the box.-blueadams

I never said I thought they should sign him, I was just pointing out that he wants to play here. I do agree though, that Holmstrom would probably get signed first.

The only way I think Knuble would have a shot at serious consideration is if the Wings did package a bunch of forwards for a d-man.

We don't need another Bottom 6 Forward IMO. We have too many as it is. I think what will end up happening is that Emmerton will be waived and someone else traded for a #6 or 7 D-Man.

So.. in that case he will sign a 2 year deal in Dallas for 4.5 a year?

Sign him takes another roster spot away from an already overloaded bottom 6 for us. I also don't see how Knuble could help us either sorry.

The only way that even begins to make sense is if the Wings make a trade that involves a bunch of bottom 6 players, even then I'm sure they could find better and younger replacements than him.

Right now, we need to be trading bottom 6 guys, not bringing more in. Hopefully he can stick around the NHL, but we don't have room.
