It sucks to see that other players don't want to play here. That says a lot about what the nhl community thinks about the direction that the Wings are headed. I hate trades as a way to acquire a player, because it's by far the least efficient way to add to the roster, and it helps the opposition, but I think a solid groundbreaking trade or two is going to be necessary to change the perceptions about where we are as an organization. That or put all the money into the kids and hope we have a franchise player or two in the pipeline to build around (unlikely).
I can't blame Holland for not getting much done today if players genuinely were going elsewhere for less lucrative contracts, but IMO this summer, up through the trade deadline are crucial in determining whether he's really the GM that the apologists believe him to be, or whether he's the GM that the critics see. How is he going to respond to today? What is his plan to make Detroit a place that valuable free agents will actually be willing to play for, and is he willing to pull the trigger on any plan to change the image of the Wings? Whatever needs to be done is going to be costly. Is he willing to part with Mantha? Is he willing to part with Nyqvist?

And there it is. 

 

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.

If Holland trades Helm to the Coyotes after this offseason bust again, I will officially give up on the Wings.  I'm ok with Abby going the other way, but I'd rather send Franzen and Pulkkinen than Helm.

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.

that's all tempting but we still don't know if any of those guys are going to be as good as are forward kids where and even they dispeared when we needed them most in the po truth is id want 1 big d signed weather that ment a trade of course that depends on who we traded and than a proven goal scorer id rather have someone who can produce at least 20-30 goals but im still concerned about d 1st if at all we aren't going to get someone form of a top 4 dman than we need to think of a experienced forward who can score otherwise it could be a very long and hard year


try to get something by me i dare you

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.

I wouldn't mind verbata my thing is do you think we have anything we could trade for a Big D as much as I hate to say it you think a package of  helm Abby Kindl + 2nd could land yandle

 

Probably not, but that gets rid of whatever little grit or speed we have left.

 

Holland needs to  give his head a shake about Quincey. Instead of reiterating what I said in the Rumors thread, ill just copy it here:

 

I think the best bet is to just go forward with what we have next season, allowing younger players to get used to the NHL. Worst case Ontario, we get a high pick in a stacked draft. Even if we were to trade for Myers right now, its not like were winning the cup with this roster. 

 

The worst thing we could possibly do is sign Quincey again. He hinders the production of younger players without actually making our team better. Stay far far away kyle, please.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Please don't mistake my FFFFFFUUUUUUU as surprise instead of the fiery, unbridled rage it was intended to be.

sjr2012 - I'd like to see Smith on the PP personally.  He's got the best 1-T on our team on D anyways.  If we had him on 1 pair unloading and Sproul on the other, I think we'd improve our PP considerably this season.  I didn't care too much about whether we got "top UFA's" or not, I just didn't want Q or Cleary back and want Kindl gone.  Those were the only moves that actually mattered to me this offseason.

Yup.

 

Unfortunately his inability of signing 'desirable' players, and re-signing guys we would rather not have has been the norm these past several years.

And somewhere in Sweden Adam Almquist's having a good laugh at the moment.

I could have lived with Holland doing nothing. I get that he swung and missed. Detroit isn't the destination that it once was... but Kyle Quincey is a void. He actively makes his defensive partner(s) worse. I quit.

I'm just going to sit in a corner for awhile.
