Just a little more difficult taking on reclamation projects like this in a salary cap world & in a shortened season to boot. Plus you don't have Lids back there to make his d-partner look like a potential all-star. Pass...

Redden can't move the puck anymore, isn't physical, and is old and slow. Retire already Wade.

Normally I would say no to this. But the fact that Colo is injury prone and Kindl has proved year after year he shouldn't be in the nhl, we need a third line dman to replace any injuries, our defensive coore really isn't that bad, but it is stretched thin, with only kindl to provide relief to any fatigued players, which again I do not like. I say sign him to a 2-way deal worth 800,000

I agree with the shortened season part 100%, not as much with the salary cap part.

 

We could actually see more reclamation projects with the new CBA. Lets take Redden for an example. Lets imagine tt's a full season and Holland signs him up on a 1 year 2-way deal for $750k/$200k a year. Lets say he comes to camp and looks decent but not enough to unseat the seven other dmen. He can be waived, and if he passes go to GR. The difference now, is that the new CBA got rid of re-entry waivers, so we don't have to bury him in GR knowing that if we recall him and he gets claimed we lose him and have to add a $375k cap hit. Basically eliminating what happened to Meech in his last year with the organization. We had to send him to GR and leave him there since we would lose him on waivers and cough up half his salary against the cap if we tried to recall him.

 

Even though these reclaimation projects might not work out, they'll give teams more useable experienced depth for the farm.

Not a fan of this... I don't see how Redden-White is that much better than Colaiacovo-White. Not to mention we'd be moving Kindl for a 4-5th rounder, or even lose him for nothing. Don't see the point.

The "come to camp" piece is critical. I mentioned this in another thread but basically if you bring Redden in now, his "try out" is during the regular season & done an the expense of another roster player. (either try to send Emmerton, Mursak, or Kindl to GR & lose them on waivers or move Smith down as he's still waiver exempt) In my opinion the Wings can't afford to burn regular season games to see if a guy who hasn't looked any good since 2007-08, shortened season or not, in a year where there are legitimate concerns that they may not make the playoffs.

Who in their right mind would steal Kindl on waivers?

A lot of teams who need a quick, big, puck moving defenseman. Is Kindl Chris Pronger? No. Is he young and actually developing? Yes. Give him some time, already.

Kenny could put most Wings on waivers and Stevie would likely pick him up.  He claimed Ritola for crying out loud.  Wonder where he is now?

As Crymson stated, I don't think there's a need for another puck mover.  Talk about guys who play the same way?  Kronwall, Colaiacovo, White, Quincey...and now Redden?  We don't have a single guy on defense who has CONSISTENTLY shown that he can play defense in a shutdown capacity.  Quincey arguably has the best track record as a defensive defenseman and that's saying something.  No thanks on Redden.  Find someone off the grid who can play good solid defense, and forget about his offensive contributions.  Something like we did with Stuart in 2008.

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

Truth. Even in a few years when we have new players that Yzerman didn't work with when he was here, he'll probably claim them. He knows the Wings have the best eyes for talent.

The way teams were vastly overpaying for dmen this past summer, I'm sure Kindl wouldn't even last 1 second unclaimed on the waiver wire. Same thing happened with Ritola and Quincey, and they had barely proved they were NHL calibre players.

I agree with your premise, but Quincey played solid in the playoffs for us in 08.  I think he had proven himself, at least defensively, at the NHL level.  But again you're right, Kindl would get claimed straight away.

It was 07 that Quincey logged a chunk of playoff time for us. In my opinion, I think it was good for Quincey to leave anyway. If we would've waived Meech instead, he would've spent half of the season in the pressbox keeping Chelios company instead of making an imediate impact like he did with the Kings.

Yeah I'm not mad about them waiving him, I'm just saying he was a more known quantity than is Kindl at present.  And you're right, it was 07.

No thanks to Redden. I hope he finds a team and can play in the league, but not for us. Let our defense play, if were going to contend then Ericsson, Smith, Quincey and Kronwall all need to step up. White and Colaiacovo need to play like there capable of, and I think we'll be fine. This isn't the star studded defense of old, but it's not some terrible Toronto Maple Leafs backline like fanboy bloggers like Ryan Lambert want people to believe. Lets get the season going, see what we got and go from there.

As a Wings fan you should bleed Redden-White.... :hysterical:

 

Anyhow, Kindl is a bust anyhow. I had that feeling from day 1 and he has done nothing to convince me otherwise....should have just drafted Yandle that year, then there would be no debate about how the hell we are going to acquire him.....Holland blew this 1st round pick, as he did also for trading last years #19 pick to Tampa...Holland is a great GM, but even he makes some glaring mistakes....

There is no space in the roster for Redden, even with Nyquist starting in the AHL.

The team needed a D prospect, and he was one of the best available. He's not a lost cause yet.

 

As for the pick in the most recent draft: 2012's draft class was one of the weakest in recent memory.
