no no no to re-signing Monster and Alfie. They cannot stay healthy enough. We are going to have the yearly Z, Franzine and Helm injuries. Its fact and we need less players that get hurt every year. Monster has a constant record of injuries yearly.

Agreed. Specially when there's like Nabokov Thomas and Brodeur who could be our back up.

Calling it....Trade Kindl to the Island for Boyle and Nabby's rights...

Honestly would anyone complain? I'm not a Boyle fan by any means. But if we dump kindl then resign both of them to ONE year deals I wouldn't complain.

I'd complain. What's the point of signing two guys who aren't going to make you Cup competitive. If you're just planning on treading water until "the kids" develop then you might as well get them into the lineup and let them start developing. I'd rather Mrazek start 25-30 games next year as Jimmy's backup and get professional level coaching than have Nabby for a year. Same with Sproul over Boyle.

We're not competing for the Cup either way. At least one of those things helps us in the long term. The other is just more nickel and dime s*** that doesn't amount to anything.

Well I agree moves need to be made. That's why if I'm holland I target spezza and Ryan. I think Ryan is very unlikely but spezza is a possibility. If we can acquire him(them) for prospects and picks but can keep 1 of Tatar/nyquist and both of smith and dekeyser it'd help us a lot.

Unless Brodeur decides he's ok as a backup, he won't come to Detroit. If was ok as a #2, I don't see why he'd leave New Jersey for one year.

Backup is our least important position. Whether Monster comes back, they bring someone else in or Mrazek comes up, I don't really care.

Defense. Defense. Defense. And then maybe a top 6 forward. But DEFENSE.

Two top six forwards more important. For now and down the road.

This is just saying hypothetically brodeur could be a candidate for the Wings but no actual rumors.

I posted it more for the reaction tweet. Brodeur is disgusting and I want no part of him on this team.

One of the things we all need to keep in mind is, it ill take 2 offseasons of being aggressive to fix our issues. I firmly believe we are 3 or 4 high end players from being a legit cup contender. You don't get that many in one off season. 1-2 each summer and maybe next season 2015/16 we can contend.

You're right. But we've got to start somewhere. Holland's spoken "wait and see" strategy just won't work. Not for 10 or 15 years at least.

Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Weiss, Franzen, Nyquist, Tatar, Jurco, Sheahan, Mantha, Alfredsson, Athanasiou...

We need a top-four defenseman like whoa.

Am I crazy for thinking Brodeur would be a good idea? Gus is not going to want a 1 year deal, that more or less is saying "Petr needs more seasoning and we like you... for now" Brodeur is the best goalie to ever play the game, is 42, and would be a great presence for Jimmy. If the guy is surrounded by winners like Ozzie and Brodeur, he should start to get it. It's far from our priority, but if Gus goes else where, why not bring in Marty if Holland doesn't want to bring Mrazek up?
