Corvo was a healthy scratch for the Canes tonight, making $2 mill/yr. I would take a chance.

Honestly I think we are ok on bottom pairing guys, we have more than enough, we need that 22-30 minute guy to play with Kronwall. Corvo's not it.

That's why Shultz Parise and Suter all signed with Tampa Bay.

 

Just joking around. The culture of smart, classy, and respectful management that has attracted talent for so long is still intact. If the Wings demonstrate that our prospects will ensure future success, despite drafting late, then Detroit will remain an attractive destination.

 

Yzerman in Tampa is completely different than Yzerman in Detroit, and you know that lol.

Filppula + Ericsson + Kindl + Nyquist + 4 French hookers + a Subway sandwich (foot-long, Italian bread, not toasted, the works) for Girardi.

What if they sue for the sandwich size? Better make it Quiznos.

Speaking of defensemen, Brad Stuart just crushed Landeskog with a huge hit.  Landeskog left the game.  Carry on.

Jesus he did crush him too.  I miss Brad Stuart.

While I agree that we really need a top pairing Dman - I just don't see Holland making much of an effort to get one right now...UFA in July is when Holland will try to lure fresh blood to Detroit.

 

Between Cola being on IR, and keeping Kindl off the ice it might be a decent move to acquire Corvo.

The Wings haven't been great the last three years. Having a club treat you right doesn't cancel a player's desire to win. The Wings haven't stood out for a while, so yeah the shine is diminished.

But let's not forget Surer was all set to come here until Parise went with Minnesota. Then it was all about family and friends, which no one van compete with. Holland needs to aggressively seek out talent to send a message that he won't accept even a temporary decline in quality. This summer will be critical.

And why do people think Datsyuk won't want to return? I was always under the impression there was nothing left for him in Russia and he liked it here.

Oh, you know... just his family and millions of untaxed dollars.  ;)

 

ON TOPIC: I think Holland is going to roll with what we've got for the time being and we'll see any other movement and acquisitions when teams start to worry about getting cap compliant for next year.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

If Corvo was sitting in the press box isn't that indicative that he's rather  low on their Dmen list?

 

Maybe I'm missing the key point of your post, but I'm under the impression that Corvo might be the type of player Holland would be interested in.

Well it's sort of a moot point because Corvo has played in 3 of the Hurricane's 4 games so far.  So it's not like he's just sitting around waiting to be traded.

My point is that we need to start thinking about guys like Yandle. Not Corvo.

Agree 1,000%.  Holland should've been doing this for the last couple of years not just this summer.

His daughter is in Russia so he doesn't really get to see her during the season.  A lot of family and friends too but in some thread people posted articles about him talking about his daughter.

I've seen it written that Pavel has said he wants to play his last years in Russia, and that he wanted to retire by age 40.  I have not seen the actual quotes, just writers saying he has said it.

 

 

Watched Bouwmeester last night.  He looked really good.

In retrospect, too bad we couldn't have packaged Hudler into a blockbuster trade to Calgary...but who knew.

I agree, we should have signed Huds to whatever contract he wanted and then packaged him and traded for jbo

Watch the Western Michigan v. Michigan game last night (Western won 5-1) and got to watch Dan Dekeyser play like he is definitely ready for the NHL. (didn't know he was a junior though)  This year more than any he would be able to step right into the Wings lineup after his season is over.  I certainly hope Holland doesn't miss out on him, like he did with Schultz....at least with Dekeyser, the Red Wings ARE on his short list of teams he wants to play for...lets just hope Holland doesn't screw the pooch.... I think dumping Kindl and signing Dekeyser would be the obvious thing to do....

 

Kronwall - Huskins

Smith - Ericsson

White - Dekeyser

Cola

 

(when healthy)

 

Of course Lashoff has more than earned a spot on this team , but can be safely sent to GR until the roster limits are lifted...he has earned a spot on next years team as well and should be awarded so.



I agree, we should have signed Huds to whatever contract he wanted and then packaged him and traded for jbo

 

I couldn't get past the words "Signed Huds to whatever contract he wanted...." without getting nauseous...whew I am glad you added the words "then traded..."

Agreed. We need this kid to come to Detroit. If we aren't going to be trading for talent on D and obviously this year's UFA class is terrible for dmen, we need acquisitions like this to make up for it.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?
