Dan Boyle for 2 years and Niskanen for 6... I would be perfectly fine with that.

Orpik and Niskanen would be nice improvement to our D. It is possible if holland can make some trades. Kindle and Lash should go.

McQuaid for me please.

I for one would love to see that type of player on the Wings blue line - however am I the only one who thinks McQuaid would get the 'Commodore', or 'Tootoo' treatment?

So I'm waiting to see what we do (and/or don't do) in the first round before I go any deeper into the identity/philosophy discussion. The Draft is practically in my backyard (figuratively but also kind of literally) and I've been able to chat up a few people in really high places. It's been wild. It's given me insight and perspective and it has me looking at things in new ways. One of those things is the Wings and our "five year drought." I think the argument can be made that Kenneth Mark Holland has, for the most part, been doing all the right things since '09 and that he has, in fact, put his team in a very good position to re-establish itself as a contender - provided certain things happen (and certain other things don't) here in this offseason.

 

I'd love to see us land Tyler Myers.

Daniel Alfredsson & family to live in DET next season no matter what. He & #RedWings will wait till Aug to see how he feels, then talk deal.

 

Well Holland will have plenty of reason to do a whole lot of nothing now.

No, everything I've read said they are moving forward regardless, and that they will figure out the Alfie thing after. They will fix the team first, thrn see where he fits.
Check out my short e-book on the Red Wings' 1937 Stanley Cup championship entitled: "Nothing Could Keep 'Em Down." Please download it from my profile at Smashwords: https://www.smashwor...ile/view/victor

How do you figure?

 

I like that. I don't want them to impatiently throw money at a guy who is breaking down (Bertuzzi). Let's take care of the right now, and we'll talk to you (Alfie) later.

Cap only went up to $69 million.

 

Boston will be in trouble with only 1.7 million available with Krug, Iginla and Reily Smith unsigned.

 

Love it :lol:

 

 

Edit: and Chicago is already over!

I'd love to rob Chicago of Sharp due to their desperation. 

 

EDIT: I read that they want to clear space for Stastny

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

Couldn't agree more (apart from the part about Myers). Wish more people could actually see things a little like this

About 10 pages ago I mentioned something about players getting moved for far less than was rumored, and yet we NEVER seem to be in on those deals. mentioned the Nash deal. Now today we see Kesler move for less than we could have offered (yes this one is a little diff because of the NTC) and then Neal get moved for very little. We could have done better in btoh of those trades and still have young talent left over.

Lets make this clear. Kesler didn't want to come here. He had a two team list. It's that simple. We can stop worrying about why we didn't get him immediately. Also, after his comments post trade...  He sounds like a sore loser. Dude, you got what you wanted... you're out of VAN.  Shut your yapper and move on.

 

As far as Neal goes:  Although TSN is reporting otherwise, many GMs are grumbling that Rutherford really didn't shop Neal around and that many would have made better offers if they had been given the opportunity.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

And also, you can't expect us to be in on every big trade deadline acquisition year in year out. Unless you want us to put out a roster depleted of youngsters, full of trade acquired veterans who don't have any chemistry because they've only been together for a year or so, rather than drafted and developed the Red Wing way, which means egos are put aside and they buy into the system. 

 

You can't expect to remain competitive in the salary cap era by trading away all your prospects and picks.
