I've thought about it lately, and I think I want Mantha on the team straight out of camp. Let's just go all in with the youth, get them as much time with Z and D and maybe Alfie as possible.

 

I agree about Mantha. Alfie left his career to come to Detroit and win a cup, I think we need for give him another run. However I want to see some major changes in the offseason.

 

And I think Smith played his ass off this series.

well that was a playoff series none of us expected us to win and 95% of us never thought we'd get into. They kids got us in and 

 

after their success in the Calder last year this series has taught them what its all about in the big boys playoffs. It'll stand them in

 

good stead for the future. We have probably seen Alfie's last game in the NHL tonight and also at least 4 as Redwings. 

 

The Bruins showed they are a good side, and also that big body's with skill usually prevail. I can't fault our guys for their effort

 

just the better side won out. Roll on next year and hopefully some fresh faces with some size joining the roster.

 

I see nothing to look forward to in the future except Mantha, who Holland will probably trade away in the off season like he did with Jarnkrok.

Positives:

Holland wanted answers he has them now:

 

Team needs to get bigger, meaner, tougher and still younger.

 

Re-sign Dekeyser, Monster (if he wants) and bring in defensive help plus 2 enforcers.

 

DONE

Mule, Alfie, Legwand, Bertuzzi, Miller ......

 

DO NOT

sign someone like Jagr, Selanne...

 

play the young kids add toughness and look hard at the Boston model that's the way to build a playoff winner.

 

Boston is the team coming out of the east and hopefully they are facing someone not name Blackhawks

Holland is laughing at you. He's talking to Jagr's agent as we speak; and we don't need team toughness, the PP is our enforcer.

I absolutely hate hearing, "they just need more experience, they'll be ready in a few years, growing pains." Absolute bulls***.  

 

What about Krug? What about Hamilton? What about Riley Smith? How come they don't need "just a bit more experience". These guys have just as much experience as our young guys and absolutely destroyed them.

 

It's not experience, it's talent and our team has very little. 

I was just going to say the same thing. Nyquist and Tatar showed me nothing. I'm sorry but if these guys are going to be the Wings "saviors" it really didn't show in this series.

I thought Datsyuk played pretty poorly overall in this series. That being said...

 

Datsyuk scored 50% of the Red Wings goals this series. And contributed to 83.33% of our scoring.

 

You know it's bad when our best player isn't playing well and still is carrying the team.

I get the impression Alfie will never win a cup.  This playoffs it looked like he wanted his team to get the cup for him more than he wanted to get it for himself.  He wasn't very good, and I was extremely excited when he came at the beginning of the year.

I pretty much agree with everything you say here except maybe Legwand. At times, when he was not burried on the fourth line he was our most physical forward. He skated to the net and could actually use his body to protect the puck. If all the others leave, he could still have a spot on the team I think.

 the PP is our enforcer. 

In hindsight, it's incredible he said this.  Our PP is dogs*** and definitely in the worst 2/3rds of the league.

This has to be it for Mule right? I don't see how he can still be here next year.

Blasphemy! It's only a matter of time before the meltdown is cued up.

 

I'm a wee bit partial from my days at Stanford. They've got pretty good fans, a team that's built the right way, McLellan was good for the Wings, Couture's a Dastyuk fanboy, Tomas Hertl...

 

The best thing that could happen is all the series - East and West and the SCF - go to seven games and the teams just flat-out obliterate each other.

franzen gone.
Legwand - gone.
Kindl, lashoff - gone. 


Should we be worried that tatar, nyquist, jurco, shehan didn't score a SINGLE goal. i mean theres only so much that dats and z can do. 

Major changes need to be made.

I have no problem with Alfie back at a reasonable price. He's taking way too muck flack for what has been a pretty solid year. I don't think we would've made the playoffs without him because he was one of our main leaders down the stretch who wasn't injured. The Cap is going up and I think it's highly likely that we're not going to use all the space up, so if Alfie is willing to stay for a reasonable amount, again, I have no problem with it. We have way, way, way bigger problems than Alfie.

That's surprising. Mickey is usually harsher to Franzen on the air than any other player.

No, I think these are young guys who are team-oriented and they're not going to show up unless the holistic team effort is there.  Perhaps that means I don't expect any of them to bloom into a Zetterberg, which is a legendary-type of player who can get things done single-handedly.  Still, I think the young kids will be good in the future.  We have 18m in cap-space this season to make the team better, and if Z/D is healthy the team will be a DARK HORSE LOL REMEMBER WHEN WE HEARD THAT

Redmond buys into franzen and blames his injuries since 2011.

I could probably be alright with one of Legwand or Alfie back, but not both. I don't really see why Legwand would be necessary with Weiss healthy and a bunch of centers already on the roster. Alfie was not good after the Olympics, though injuries probably played a major role.

First order of business has to be fixing the defense.

Oh well ... can't say that I'm surprised but I was hoping for a bit more fight and possibly an upset.  I just hope to God that this is not our fate for the next few years ... squeeze into 7th or 8th spot, out in round 1 or 2. 

 

This year was a bit of regression seeing as how last year at least we made it to round 2.
