Lebrun is one of the most reliable sources out there, along with Dreger and McKenzie. I'd take alfredsson in a heartbeat. He's one of the only available free agents who won't require a several year commitment. Our prospects will be ready to be top 6ers in a year or two

Ken Holland is that you? Nyquist and Tatar are ready NOW. Furthermore we don't have enough room in the bottom 6 because we have so many bottom 6ers. 


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

I haven't heard much about Ryan Clowe lately, no rumors or scuttllebutt. Anyone hearing anything?

Beyond datsyuk Zetterberg and franzen, we have no top sixers. (I do agree with you that nyquist, Tatar and/or brunner can play in the top six) alfredsson would only take up 1 spot, so we would still have 2 spots available to test those guys out. Plus he's probably dying for a cup. There will be no lack of motivation

Alfredsson could score 30 on Dats' wing, if he doesn't stay with the Sens, which he should.  But if he does come to the Wings then having him on a 1 year deal would be a good bridge for someone like Pulkkinen or Frk to join the Wings to be the next right handed sniper.

Thank you!

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".

Ribeiro 112 points in his last 122 games, yeah that won't help us in the slightest... who needs scoring it's overrated. Sure would make this team "worse" because what we really needed was to overpay for Clarkson to increase our dumb penalty minutes taken total and underwhelm on the score sheet. Damn you Kenny. Just bring back Filppula for that amount of money so he can have a 35-40 point season, offer no grit, and let someone else take Ribeiro and his 70 points. 

 

A lot of people "hated" Tootoo also, got over it pretty quick once you discover a pain in the ass player isn't so bad when they are on your squad.


Edit: not directed at anyone in particular was just a general sarcastic comment before the Ribeiro haters come seeking my head.

Just reading this article http://www.mlive.com...nto_shallo.html Holland doesn't seem interested in being competitive in the FA market every year players are going to be asking for "too much" its not going to change. The holes and missing pieces are going to filled up with washed up "playmaking" players who will try to fill top 6 roles. I don't think we'll end up with anyone from the list of players wings are so called interested in.

 

So help me god if Cleary comes back I"m disowning Holland  he's already on my s*** list at the very least give it to another Griffins player.

Ideally, the Red Wings hope they don't need any wingers. They're hoping to re-sign Daniel Cleary and Damien Brunner. Talks will continue until noon Friday, if that's what it takes.

Is he serious ? If the Wings lack one thing it is a scoring winger. Even with Cleary and Brunner resigned.

I'd much rather see Holland "overpay"  Grabovski.

I would be fine with Ribiero on a 2-3 year deal MAX.  I'd like for us to give Grabovski a chance, as I think he could thrive here as the 2nd line center and playing on the powerplay with Datsyuk.

Hammer, meet the nail!  My thoughts are:  Sign Brunner and our RFAs.  Let Cleary walk, trade Quincey for a few picks, pick up Ferrence for a year or two, get our youth up.

Playing on Pavel Datsyuk's line, he obviously created some space for Pavel. That's something we're going to have to monitor," said Ken Holland.


Ugh.

3 more hours...The only 2 things i would like to happen for sure today are, sign brunner and hear that  cleary will be wearing a different sweater color.

Dreger is reporting that Alfredsson will not be back with the Senators and sign with the Wings. I hope this isn't true he doesn't help the Wings and should retire as a Senator. IF it it's true then meh let him retire as a Senator and sign a guy who can really help this team. Tl;dr would be a stupid move

So goodbye Tatar and Nyquist? or are we burying guys like Sammy, Emmerton, Eaves in minors and eating caphits for a year?


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

@DarrenDreger: Ribeiro to Phx is done.
 
..phew.

Neither one of them are centers, so I don't see how they're affected.
