@StapeNewsday: According to sources, #Isles were more than competitive with offers to targeted FAs: Offered 3 years to Dan Boyle, 4 years to Jarome Iginla.

:lol:

Good lord, we are becoming the Islanders.

Is this an actual statement or just a joke?

I really hope this spurs KH to offer sheet Subban. Make the deal as rich and unmatchable as you can.

It's not like their are any negatives to doing so, nobody will sign with us and nobody will trade fairly with us now anyway.

 

 

And Montreal would call him and say thanks for doing the negotiating for us.  Offer sheets don't work.

 

Del Zotto would be a reasonable signing, if it was short term (preferable one year, no more than two) for around $2.5 mil per.  He's struggled recently, but that was under Tortorella and then trying to catch on under Trotz.  He might be worth a flier on a reclamation project.  But only if they move Kindl.


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!

Del Zotto's only 24 years old and could fit to our young group of d men well.Still a lot of room for improvement for him unlike Kindl and especially for Quincey.

You offer a guy an extra year and 3.5 million to play for you and he says "no thanks"....I'm not sure what the GM can do.  We have two immediate RH D options in GR (Marchenko and Jensen) and another that's close in Sproul.  

 

Maybe we can use some of our cap space to pay the people's water bills...that might keep the UN out of town and that might raise the city's profile as a destination for FA's

With the best remaining options being Derek Morris, Ed Jovanovski, Michael Del Zotto, and Joni Pitkaenen, I'd much rather just give Sproul/Ouellet/Marchenko a chance with the big club, than waste our money on any of the players I just mentioned (I do sort of like Del Zotto, but he's yet another lefty). Or acquire a top D-man through trade. As long as we don't have to give up Tatar, Nyquist, or Mantha (I could live with giving up Jurco and picks for the right d-man).

I just really don't see how after striking out we can't be all over del zotto he's young, great puck mover and could be a home run if his potential pans out. I'll be mad if holland doesn't sign him enough is enough

Ever been? Ever wonder why there are many multimillionaires in the suburbs of Detroit? It's because no one lives in the damned city, the live in the suburbs which are considered some of the best places to live in the whole country.

 

Yes, but you're not being offered a contract to play for the Bloomfield Hills Red Wings.  They also want to live in places with thriving downtowns, and for the more business minded players, areas that have a lot of potential endorsement deals.  Warmer weather helps too.

-edit- Didnt see Helm there. They might accept that trade. But giving up Helm and his deadly speed would be really tough to do.

I'd take Del Zotto over Kindl or Quincey any day of the week.  As far as Heatley or Setoguchi, I want nothing to do with either of those guys.  Vrbata is ok, but I'd also rather see Alfie back for 1 year and then Mantha up instead of getting him.  If I actually had things my way, I'd keep Mitch Callahan, promote Mantha if he shows he belongs, promote Ouellet and Sproul and then find a way to dump Kindl, whether it be a regular buyout or trade to a desperate team who cares, and then tell Cleary and Alfie to retire.

Dan Cleary is an Xbox 360.  While good for a while, it's time for the new generation to take over.

It's pretty simple.  The Red Wings don't seem like one of the top competitive teams or a team with a lot of potential headed in the right direction. 

 

 

This team continues to have no identity post-Lidstrom.

Guess I'd be alright with Del Zotto - he's young, and said to have considerable potential.

 

Pair him with DD.

@AnsarKhanMLive: Wings didn't get a right-hand shooting defenseman, but still need someone. They've made offer to Kyle Quincey (left). Waiting to hear back.
