Well good bye Babcock....it was great while it lasted.

I don;t know about that. The lack of a big name forward signing improves Mantha's chances to make the top 6

I swear if Holland comes out and says "in the end the price was too steep and we want to go with our young guys" instead of admitting no one wanted to come here I'm going to lose it.

He is rumored to have offered Boyle 2yr/10m, so you can't say he was cheap.

Wow.

I don't have much faith in Holland these days, but I honestly thought it was a given that he'd get at least one of the many halfway descent mid-level options out there. There were several descent options and we had the cap room to even pay a bit more than we'd like for some of the mid-level guys.

But it's looking like we're going to come up totally empty again.

We need a new GM, plain and simple. Keep Kenny in the organization if you can, but there have just been too many consecutive years now where he's not finding a way to get the things done that he needs to get done, and that's not even considering all of the terrible signings he has managed to get done.

@ Wings4theCup06....it means we'll likely see Quincey back and keep Kindl and Ouellet, Sproul and Marchenko get "more seasoning" in GR this year cause kids are only a last case scenario here when you have quality "vets" like Q and Kindl. I'm bitter because of that fact. Our kids on D won't see jack this season.

There are just no words. We're actually left with Kyle Quincey and Dan Cleary. In real life. 400 free agents, probably a couple dozen trade possibilities. And we're left with Kyle Quincey and Dan Cleary, and a thoroghly bubble-ass team. Oh, and Babcock hasn't signed an extension.

Tough day so far, which is why if we get defense help its just gotta be threw a trade.

As I've said already. If KH calls you looking for a trade, you ask for the moon. What other choice does he have? Also, right after free agency is a terrible time to trade because the market is in equilibrium and you can't play sellers off of one another to reduce prices.

If he trades now (as opposed to a week ago), he's a complete fool

Anyone dragging this thread into arguments about "real" fans will be suspended.

Stay on topic.

Any REAL mod would never make a crazy announcement like that!

There have actually been absolutely no indications of the Wings intentions (that have been mentioned today) of re-signing Quincey. Until it happens, there's no point even discussing it IMO

Yeah I didn't mean for him to go into panic mode and offer Nyquist for Myers or anything. But down the road he might have to package tatar/pulkinnen to get something we have needed for 4 years now.

The other option is to play the kids on the back end, and bring Mantha into the top 6. Why not?

Anyone with any insight in D Jamie McBain? I don't really know much about him other than he shoots R and had 30 and 27 point seasons not too long ago with Carolina.
