In a recent interview Z said he is thinking about staying on Detroit when he retires. He really likes it in Michigan. He's going to be here til he can't play the game anymore, I think. Future GM?

 

Sure, after Stevie is done here in a few decades :lol:  Maybe coach??

How boss would it be with Stevie as GM and Z as assistant GM?

2018: detroit red wings sign ilya kovalchuk.

 

 

 

also, i read somewhere that Z and his wife were planning on staying in the detroit area even after he retires.

Big, physical and a lot of upside.


Kadri is listed at 6'0 188, or more importantly, just a little smaller than Danny Cleary.

I hadn't seen that. Hopefully he stays on with the team in some capacity. Would be awesome to someday have Yzerman, Lids, Z, Draper, etc.. all in the FO.

I really don't want Moulson going to the Sens. We have enough trouble with them as it is.

I think its almost safe to say Holland won't be making any moves this year...(again)

 

 

He said he was going to wait and see how the few games before the olympics go before he decides to make any moves, and with a few points in a few games he'll probably sit tight again.

 

If anything I could see a very minor move, hopefully getting a 5th or 6th defenceman in return without losing anyone valuable. (quincey not included) Plus with the added cap issues, there isn't much Holland could really pull the trigger on if he wanted to

Next season is going to be interesting because there will definately be moves, Holland has no choice. So many players ready for the big club and no longer waiver exempt so that is going to be interesting.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

A guy that's been in the rumor mill and even then TSN guys mentioned him, David Legwand. Michigan guy, the apparent asking price is a 1st or 2nd. I'm not totally enamored with him but he seems like a Holland guy.

Yeah. Legwand has "Holland Guy" written all over him.

 

I could totally see a 2nd + Andersson going the other way. Remember Legwand's a center and if the Wings get healthy they already have Datsyuk, Z, Helm, Weiss, Andersson, Sheahan, and Glendenning.

If we make a move draft picks are going to be huge.  We can't offer much in terms of players, but we need to offload someone for cap reasons if we want to acquire anyone.  Since Cleary won't net us anyone, we'll have to package a lesser guy with a draft pick or two. With how stacked we are down the pipeline, I'm perfectly find with tossing draft picks around (to a point) like candy if it gets us someone who can help.

If anything I think these past few games might force him to make a move.  If he wants to try and keep some of the kids in the lineup he's gonna have to dump some salary.

This article makes the Vanek opportunity look some what possible. 

 

http://www.thehockey...an-you-thought/

 

 

 

Here’s how. Going into this season, the last on Vanek’s contract, his cap hit was $7.14 million dollars. When the Buffalo Sabres traded Vanek to the Islanders in October, they retained $1.4 million of his salary and cap hit, leaving the Islanders with a cap hit of $5.75 million. Now when the Islanders trade Vanek, they could also agree, according to the collective bargaining agreement, to pick up 50 percent of that amount, which would bring Vanek’s cap hit with his new team to just $2.9 million. But salaries are based on what each team pays per day and if Vanek is dealt on March 5, almost 80 percent of his salary will have already been paid. Since there will be just 40 days remaining in a 195-day season, that would mean Vanek’s new team could get him in their lineup for the stretch run and the playoffs for as little as $590,000.

 

I personally believe hes going to Minny next season, so it would be a rental. But I do think we have what it would need to acquire him. Ive read theyre looking for D for the most part. We got plenty coming in the pipeline to make that possible.

He already said he wants to test free agency. So he has no interest staying with whoever he Is traded to. That should lower his trade value a bit. Still don't think he will come here.

Callahan is off his rocker if he thinks his .56 points per game average is gonna net him $7m/yr.

Edit:points. Not goals.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!
