I would take both of them, though I think Stalberg is redundant when you have Nyquist and Helm filling similar roles.

 

Bickell should be on this team, or Clarkson, the Wings badly need a tough guy who can score.

Didn't see anything from Stalberg in the Chicago series that made me interested in him coming to play for the Red Wings. I think with the number of forwards already locked up or under consideration for the roster next season, any signing/trade needs to give the Red Wings something they don't already have.

Horton/Clarkson and Bickell definitely are players I would like the Red Wings to push for in free agency.

Stalberg did have a couple of great chances, but yes, other than those few chances he didn't seem to do much else. If he's been in Q's doghouse, I don't see Babs giving him more love. His size+speed is intriguing though...

I wouldn't mind having a Bickell type player, but Holland doesn't seem to like players like that, based on the free agent signings we usually make.

 

There's been Grier/Clarkson/Winchester/Neil, etc. talk on here, as long as I can remember.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I have to agree here. I don't see them picking up someone like that at all. Look for lilja or something like that coming. thats about it.

Bickell to help on the LW-he did score 17 goals in 2010/11 and Clarkson to play RW-he scored 30 last year and 15 in half a season this year.

I guess an old washed up big man like Bertuzzi is about the only thing I can remember.  

 

But I wouldn't think of him as a big, bruising player by the time he came to Detroit (either time).

That would be quite the combo if the wings can land both.

We are def gonna need a player that can score and is gritty when we move to the Eastern Conference. Just not sure that guy is Bickell. Clarkson will cost a lot but if we buy out Sammy and Bert and kick Cleary to the curb that will open up some cap space.

And even better if franzen bought out....put Brunner there. And your 3rd is Nyquist Anderson and Tatar.

But that's living in lala land cause it makes too much sense.

I think my left nut would explode if we signed clarkson.

 

horton-yes.

 

Dickell-not a chance.  Don't need a guy who's gonna turn into jamal mayers in 2 years.

Buying out a perennial 25-30 goal scorer who makes only $4m might make great sense to you. To many of the rest of us, it doesn't.

The bottom two lines need some size and grit. Bickell would definitely add that. You need guys to go out there and wear on an opponent's defense. I think the Red Wings have done very well incorporating more speed, but they need some bigger bodies too.
