I want P.K.Subaan on this team badly

A guy who makes Franzen look like Ovie? Not for almost 6 million a year.

Yeah, our blue line is already stacked enough as it is.

 

Kronwall - DeKeyser

Smith - Quincey

Kindl - Lashoff

 

Who are you going to move/demote for P.K. Subban, reigning Norris Trophy winner? Maybe Quincey, but he's been nothing but solid for us since we traded a first round pick for him.

 

Bottom line, we're brimming with all-star offensive defensemen. What we really need is a quality goaltender.

Have you ever watched him play? He would fit on this team perfectly. He's exactly what we need.

RH shot, bomb from the blue line, racks up points, young and physical

 

Expect Subaan to be getting 7+ when he signs a new contract and worth it imo

Subban is exactly what we need. A young, gifted, right-handed offensive defenseman who could singlehandedly rekindle our offense. I fully expect him to re-sign with the Habs, though.

I'm not even sure what this means?  So I'm going to guess for fun.  Subban makes...

 

one ugly foreigner look like another ugly foreigner.

one guy not known for his work ethic look like another guy not known for his work ethic.

a guy who doesn't play defense well look like a guy who doesn't play defense at all.

a terrible actor look like a terrible dancer.

Good thing we've got Sproul in the system.

And Ouellet play on the other side of him...and he looked damn good in his 1st NHL game.

This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

His performance in the OHL was comparable to Subban's. Too, he was named OHL Defenseman of the Year last season; Subban was never awarded this honor. He's also taller than Subban by three inches, though he still needs to fill out his frame.

And if they don't, then we get an awesome trade. (Plus awesome offseason signings???) And if that doesn't work or doesn't happen, we get an awesome draft pick.

 

A win-win-win situation.

 

Because when the Red Wings lose, they still win!

Not saying I don't like him and don't want him to - and think he will - pan out, but nothing's for certain with prospects, right? Just look at Smith. How many of us thought he'd be struggling this mightily? (Not saying I don't think Smith will become a dominant defenseman in this league.) It's definitely encouraging, though. Sproul's success, I mean.

 

I guess the big thing for me here is The Big Thing I've been talking about: we only have a few more seasons of The Datsyuk and Zetterberg Show left. So, while I'm totally on board the Sproul bus, Holland should be aggressively pursuing any and all possibilities re: top defensemen, IMHO.

Well, I mean, isn't that sort of the way it works in this league? Fail, steal underpants, get coveted draft picks, profit! (See: Blackhawks, Penguins.)

I would rather Ouellet play over Smith or Q. He cannot be any worse, those two are on Aki Berg level.

Did someone say we're stealing underpants?

Yup - add me to the PK Subban fan club.

I'm not quite ready to give up on Smith yet thiugh I'd be ok with trading him. Quincey on the other hand went back to traded a 1st round pick for garbage Quincey. He's brutal and he's been taking really bad penalties lately.

This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

What are you trying to say? Subban is a d-man. I don't see how you can compare him to franzen. Plus, subban just won a Norris trophy.
