So it appears we are exploring the following forward options:

 

1. Stephen Weiss

2. Mike Ribiero

3. Matt Cullen

4. Jerome Iginla

 

And on defense:

 

1. Andrew Ference

2. Marek Zidlicky

 

The thought is that if they acquire a defensemen this off-season, Quincey will probably be dealt.  I'm sure this is music to many ears, if winding up true.  I'm not sure I'd like Zidlicky, but I do like the idea of Ference, being that he is a steady  stay at home that could mentor some of the youth.  I'd like him over Quincey for sure.

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

Kindl - DeKeyser

Ference - Smith

Lashoff

 

 

 

 

If this is allwe have to choose from then we're in trouble :eh:

I think Weiss would be No. 1 option for Detroit but Bozak in there as well.. Wings still talking to Fil as well...

Lots of teams reached out on Alfredsson and while Boston is most aggressive, Detroit was among teams that also called (Swedish connections)

Yes to Weiss under 5mill per season. We can use a player with his quality - he can play a skilled or physical game depending on the situation and WINS faceoffs more often than not. Its a shame he isn't above 6 feet but he plays like it.

 

We don't need more "meh" wingers - we need a sure thing. 


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

I hope Val stays a Wing.  He's been here since he was a little Flipling, as my friend says. 

 

And I can't picture Alfie here, but the Swedish Connection might influence that.  Surely he'd pick Motown over Beantown, if it came to that.  I hope.  :)

Add Tyler Bozak to the list of players that have our interest according to TSN.

TSN also listed Detroit as one of the teams who reached out to Scuderi, but who knows in what capacity.

Good God. Tyler Bozak is pretty atrocious. I would rather see Fil stay or Weiss brought in over him. "Reaching out" to Scuderi is not a bad thing at all. He has some size, gets in shooting lanes and is more physical that most of our lineup.

for defense

 

id go for ference at 3 yrs max (hes 34) and 2nd option would be 6'4 komisarek 1 yr 1 million, think hed be good on the 3rd pairing with say kindl , he was way overpayed in toronto but i think he could surprise here on the 3rd pairing

 

upfront

 

considering the ridiculous prices these players will get 

 

id consider iginla on 2 yrs max 

 

resigning brunner 10 mill 4 yrs max

 

morrow 2yrs max or clowe  3 yrs max

 

thats about it , pretty weak crop this year better off tryin to make deal (seguin in my dreams lol )

 

 

on a sidenote toronto was shopping phaneuf at one point , could be interesting to have him here for 1 year although he does have a really bad cap hit:( we'd have to throw in maybe quincey + in a deal to get him

 

kronwall ericsson

 

phaneuf dekeyser

 

kindl smith

 

just a thought

If the Kings were going to lose Scuderi I'd be happy for him to go to the Wings.  He doesn't get enough credit for what he provides on their blueline. 

 

It'd be interesting because he's a defensive #2 guy, similar to Ericsson but more experienced.   So you could have Kronwall Scuderi, Ericsson-Smith, Kindl-Dekeyser?  Plus Quincey and Lashoff somewhere in there.  Even buying out Cola and letting White go, there's a logjam on defense.

 

But hopefully they'd move someone in a deal for a forward.

I'll be furious if we sign Ribeiro. He can play but my God, he has no sportsmanship whatsoever.

 

 

It's also been mentioned that we were kicking the tires on Alfredsson and Bozak. And I see it's already been mentioned...

According to Dreger Bozark is looking at slightly under 5 for 7 years, so hopefully the Wings are staying away from him. According to Leafs fans the guy is useless without Lupul and Kessel.

Grabovski is reportedly being bought out (as per Bob McKenzie's twitter).  I don't think I'd really want him, but having one more top 6 player on the market might drive down prices at little bit.  Hopefully.

Wasn't he supposed to become their first line center? I think he wil go back to Russia

Grabovski is now available.

 

If Weiss is asking too much I think Grabovski just might be a decent alternative.

For whatever reason he just sorta fell outta favor with Carlyle.

 

EDIT - I'm thinking a 3, or 4 year deal that averages $3.5 to $4 million per season might be good enough to sign Grabovski (that is if Holland cannot sign Weiss, or he decides to go in a different direction).

 

He's certainly capable of playing the role of 2nd centerman/2nd pp unit...20 plus goals, and 50 plus pts are something we could expect from Garbo.

Well Carlyle absolutely hates guys that don't backcheck half the time even if they are forwards so I am really not surprised. Grabowski for 3,5 m 3 year max would be okayish nothing great but a nice stopgap but honestly I don't think he will come under 5 m.

If we sign Weiss and Brunner then we will be forced to move a forward even with one of our forwards on LTIR. I think this is why we haven't seen a Brunner signing yet. Holland wants to see what Weiss is asking first before making a decision and potentially deciding which bottom 6 forward to move to make room for these two guys. It would be one of Eaves, Tootoo, Emmerton that would have to go as Sammy and Bert are not going anywhere apparently. 

 

Also I just don't see how we have room for Cleary next season with Sammy staying. Sammy is really throwing a wrench in Holland's plans.


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

Ference at 3.5 would be nice, but I feel like Ansar is lowballing his value. I like Weiss, but for 4.5 or 5 on a long term deal? I dunno about that one.

Ference is more of a 2.5-3 tops guy.  He's a solid shutdown guy, but you want him at the #4-5 spot, preferably 5.  He's like Scuderi with slightly less offensive upside.  I'd like Weiss for 3 years 12-13mil.
