maybe trade quincey for picks and pick up leopold, murray, or streit 

 

cant beat those 4 lines. id love to get rid of gustavsson too and bring up mrazek

I didn't even read this before I posted mine, but we signed the same 2 guys and we both let Flip walk.  I would keep Q though and let him go after next season, same goes for Gustavsson.  Then I'd take another look at Mrazek to see if he's a capable back up for Howard and I'd fast track Sproul and maybe get Backman up with him in 2014 depending on how our D is performing.  Ouellet will likely be more on the fast track as well.

I am not so sure that Q will be let go after next season.  I guess it all depends on Cola and how he plays and stays healthy.  I am not so sure that both Q and Cola walk, that leaves two spots to fill.  I am all for not having Q on this team, but I am also not so sure that with all the rookies this past season on D, that Holland will feel comfortable in another year having two more unproven rookies on D again.  I think if Q does not get traded that, unless Holland has another player on his mind, he re-signs here again and Cola leaves...

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

Dekeyser - Quincey

Smith - Kindl

Lashoff (with appearances by Sproul)

 

That will be your 7 defenders the year after next.  Of course, barring trade's.  I said in another thread that Q would be the most likely traded from the D, but if not him, then Kindl...but I really think Holland is happy with his D and probably won't touch it unless its a deal he cannot refuse...

I traded Franzen and Quincey to Dallas for a 1st round pick and Filppula to Anaheim for 1st round pick. That is THREE 1st round picks for us this draft.  Obvious buyouts of Bert and Sammy.  Re-signed the kids at modest raises. Recalled Tatar.  Now, this leaves $18.3M to find offensive TOP 6 help. That should WAY enough cash to get TWO top 6 talents.  Who that may be I will leave to your imagination.

 

Looking at the draft order, Dallas (#10 overall) won't be trading their 1st to us for Franz and Q, so I take that trade back.  I do agree that a pending UFA won't garner a 1st in the off season either, so I take that back.  BUT I still trade those three guys, just not for as much as I first expected...

When we have the likes of Sproul, Ouellet, Backman, Jensen, Nicastro, Almqvist, McKee and such coming up through the ranks, we don't need to keep signing ok Dmen for a couple years to bridge gaps.  We need to give the spot on the team to the best player that we have.  After next year, the best Dmen we have will likely be the first 3 on that list that will be fighting for 1 or 2 spots on the Wings.  So as much as I like Smith, he better prove his worth this year coming up and Lashoff should show he's a shutdown guy, or they can be packaged for a forward and Sproul, Ouellet and Backman can take the reigns.

Sounds good to me! I never have like Q, so I won't be heartbroken if he isn't here! Plus I am all for the rebirth of the Red Wings as well!

i dont know much about leopold just remember a lot of hype about him around trade deadline. murray i always thought was a huge shutdown dman that can use his body. fair enough keep quincey then

 

i havent been watching i wish i could, but i thought hed be better than gustavsson, in the games hes played he hasnt looked good.

the only 2 decent younger guys available. i highly doubt we see both. maybe one of them though. fils been a huge disappointment this year and i think ryder and horton will be better then him even if fil is better defensively. and theyll come a mil+ cheaper then what fil wants

Leopold was good some years ago. Murray is a fringe third-pairing defenseman.

 

Mrazek has loads of talent, but he is prone to spells of inconsistency. If these are an issue at the AHL level, they'd be deadly in the NHL.

 

The idea that Filppula wants $5m is a rumor, nothing more. So, for that matter, was the claim that he wants $4m. People picked it up and ran with it.

Easy Moves = Buyouts and Signing Everyone to big raises.

I actually like this collection of players but not the lines you posted


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

Leopold was Buffalo's worst defenseman, and San Jose couldn't wait to get rid of Murray. No thanks. Streit won't be leaving the Isles.

 

I don't think you've been watching the Calder Cup playoffs, else you would know that Mrazek is absolutely not ready for the NHL.

 

This comment has just gotten blown to smitherings today lol.

 

A couple sources on twitter have said that streit will not return to NYI after hearing their highest offer in the last day or so.

 

And Mrazek has posted 2 straight conference finals shutouts. Thats not entirely proof that hes ready, but hes looking more ready than he ever has.

Mrazek will definitely not be in the NHL for at least another season, and even then its not guaranteed. I doubt they want to use him as a back-up and as well as he's playing he's nowhere near as good as Howard right now. Down the road he'll push him for the starting role, but until he's ready to do that he'll be in the minors.

 

Here's what I consider to be a realistic roster for the Wings going into next season. I don't think we sign any free agents this year, and I only see us using one buyout on Emmerton because Andersson has made him expendable. Salaries are a guess and probably slightly lower than what they will actually receive.

This would be a great team, eh? Although I stopped enjoying it when I saw Franzen on this roster...he doesn't even belong on the current Wings roster, let alone a star studded one...



Mrazek will definitely not be in the NHL for at least another season, and even then its not guaranteed. I doubt they want to use him as a back-up and as well as he's playing he's nowhere near as good as Howard right now. Down the road he'll push him for the starting role, but until he's ready to do that he'll be in the minors.

 

Here's what I consider to be a realistic roster for the Wings going into next season. I don't think we sign any free agents this year, and I only see us using one buyout on Emmerton because Andersson has made him expendable. Salaries are a guess and probably slightly lower than what they will actually receive.

 I certainly hope you are wrong...Cleary has to go for sure. Also I don't think Andersson and  Nyquist top $1M and do you honestly think that Kindl and Smith will get $2.2M? I see them getting $1.2M at the most....

I want to see more physical 3rd and 4th lines and more skilled 1st and 2nd lines. Plus Kenny needs to realize that we have a lot of young players who are NHL ready. They need some icetime in Detroit to improve. In five years, when Z, Pav and probably Kronner are gone, we need some new stars.

Maybe Kenny can find a good right handed defender to fill the capspace a little bit.

 

Wow..where did Ericsson, Smith and Quincey go? They can't jsut disappear lol.  With that D we would lose 70 games.  Bert on the 1st line ? Andersson..where is he? I'm all for posting lineups and stuff but lets at least follow the guide lines of what an actual NHL roster would consist of.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

I agree with everything you said, but I would like Bert as a first liner. He's one of our best shooters and has good hands. Don't you remember his 45 points in 2011 and his 38 points in 2012?


Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Both Kindl and Smith rank above Colaiacovo on the depth chart and he's making 2.5 so I can't see them agreeing to much less than him unless its a long term deal. I believe Kindl is actually eligible for arbitration and would likely get more than 1.2 if we went that route.

Nyquist and Andersson were guesses I can see them getting anything from the .725k up to the 1.2 million Eaves makes. I hope its less than a million as well, if it means we can bring in a FA for the top 6/
 
I agree on Cleary, I'd prefer him let go as well, but he's one of Babcock's favorite players, he was one of the more effective players we had in the playoffs and he's expressed a desire to take a pay cut to stay so I figure he'll be brought back.
