Didn't see this posted anywhere, so I will add some quotes.

 

"We would like to get more scoring, a little bigger, a little grittier"

 

"All 5 of the young guys that played this year will be in Detroit. Lashoff, tatar, Nyquist, Andersson, and Dekeyser" were the names he mentioned. But then he later back tracked a bit. Said "all the young guys will be pushing for time in training camp".

 

"we will be looking to add some guys via UFA, maybe not top line guys but secondary support type players."

 

"We have 5 UFA's, some we would like to keep, some we will part ways with. Cleary, Filppula, Miller, White, and Brunner are all UFA's".

Now, let's take Holland at his word. That makes our roster:

 

Abby-Datsyuk-Bert

Franzen-Z-Sammy

Nyquist-Andersson-Tatar

Eaves-Emmerton-TooToo

Helm (may not be healthy) plus who ever we resign: my guess is Brunner, Miller, Cleary in that order. That would make 14, 15, or 16 forwards.

 

Kronwall-Ericsson

Dekeyser-Kindl

Smith-Quincy

Lashoff-Cola

 

8 Dman.

 

G:

Howard

Gus

 

This means we are over full. Trades can be made. If we add 1 or 2 UFA's, it is a true full house.

LOL.

 

That's worse than this year's team.  


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

Sammy, Bert, and Cleary need to go. Then add a top 6 forward and I'm happy.

I'm pretty sure everyone on here agrees. We then get into the debate of who we want.

LOL.

Would that surprise you though? I don't expect much change. The biggest change is if fil isn't brought back. But I don't think he will use a buyout when he should.


All I want is clarkson Horton or bickell one maybe two.

The biggest concern is....why are you listening to the huge show? If I wanted go hear commercials all night I'd set my DVR for 2am-4am. ESPN 96.1 is where its at. The dude actually knows hockey and has a very inbiased realistic opinion.


Like his take on franzen. Or Inge any other bum you can think of lol.

Keep Brunner...other 4 can go



I have a feeling a player or 2 will be bought out and they'll trade a player or 2 at the draft for draft picks

Never said anything him as a person. Just downing his show. Its 90% advertising. If im listening to someone talk sports I actually want to hear them talk about sports not the 800 people advertising him.

The Best case scenario goes like this:

1) Dump Bert and Sammy with Buyouts

2) Dump White, Cleary, Cola, Tootoo, Miller, and Eaves via UFA/trade package

3) Wings sign Horton.

4) Wings sign Flip

5) Helm is back

Hank-Dats-Horton
Franzen-Helm-Filppula
Brunner-Andersson-Nyquist
Abdelkader-Emdog-Tatar
Shehan-Frk

Kronwall-Rig
Smith-Quincey
Kindl-Dekeyser
Lashoff

I would like to see Miller stay. He is an excellent 4th-liner. I still long to see a line of Miller, Helm, and Eaves. This would be the best 4th line in the league.

I like Miller, but we need to move on. Tatar, Pulks, Frk - these guys dont bring a big drop off from Miller. We have got to get them seasoned.

It's a little early to start talking about Pulks, and Frk. Pulks just got to America and Frk hasn't even played with anyone over 18 yet. Sheahan, Ferraro, and Jarnkrok will be up before those two. Look for Miller to be resigned due to him being a utility player...

Tatar is a scorer, not a grinder. Pulkinnen and Frk, who are as well, are far away from NHL readiness.

Funny how these names keep popping up as if they will be playing any time soon. Just because we have having a "youth movement" doesn't everyone is coming up. I doubt we'll see a lot of these players for 5 more years. ( sounded a bit wierd the way it came out but I agree with what you said).

 

I agree with keeping Miller around for the 4th line he's very dependable and strong at what he does for this team. Miller and Brunner are the only two I care about retaining.

i think andersson will center the 4th line if helm returns and helm 3rd line

 

something like

 

tatar helm brunner

 

cleary andersson eaves

 

dont know about miller returning if he does wed have to get rid of tootoo?? emmerton??? that being said if he did return i wouldnt mind he'd be a good cheap 12-13th depth forward

Surprised about the lack of Miller love on here. He was excellent on the PK. I'd like to see him here one more year.
