ok this is intriguing me i want to know what the majority of my fellow forum members think is the better option because both are getting a lot of attention so to settle it if we do land one of them which one do you guys want? both are pretty good D man who have the potential to turn our d unit around

Niskanen.


Not that I don't erhoff. But I've been on the side of forward needs upgrade over defense. But if we get a D it needs to be a righty.

Erhoff would be a great pickup if Niskanen goes elsewhere. But I think Niskanen has to be the #1 target Tuesday. Young, righty, coming into his prime. He'd become part of the core for this team for many years to come, where I feel Erhoff would be a stop gap for a few years then start to decline.

I think you should make this a four or five way poll and add in Dan Boyle, Tom Gilbert, Stephane Robidas, etc.  That might be more illuminating.  As it is, I had to pick between two guys who are better than every other defenseman on our team aside from Kronwall.

Ehrhoff would be a great _"second" price if we don't get Niskanen but like others said Niskanen is a righty anyway can't go wrong with either one both know how to run a powerplay

I'd be fine and complelty relieved with either guy.

But I'm not holding my breath. I still think Nisksnen goes to Minnesota and even though Philly are -200,000k in cap space, I think they'll go hard after Erhoff and worry about the cap later because that's how they roll.

They can put him into the AHL and voila capspace Snyder cleary has enough cash.

Niskanen and its really isn't close. As just a player on the ice they are fairly close. But when you add in age and handedness (is that a word?) it tilts towards Niskanen. he is the type of player we need for the next 7+ years.

Ehrhoff is .45 pts per game

Niskanen is .35 pts per game (that said having a career year last season with 46 pts, prior last season his average was 17.2 pts)

 

I think that Niskanen is a very good def but I don't think he can put the same numbers with Detroit.

 

 

Either player is upgrade but both of them should be considered as a top 4 def and not the top 2 def that's the reason why I would go with the less expensive at this point.

 

I voted Ehrhoff

Sproul is probably not at all ready defensively. Give him a minimum of 1 more year in GR. Marchenko should be up next season but he should be more of a Kindl/Lashoff replacement, not as the replacement for Quincey in the top 4 which is what we're looking for Niskanen/Ehrhoff/Boyle/etc to be.

I was kind of joking tbh, although part of me would love to see KH and co go with 2 kids on the 3rd pairing. It would be entertaining to say the least

Much depends on what kind of contract you're talking.

 

But Niskanen is younger, and he's a righty.  Promote Marchenko and we've suddenly got 2 RHD's and a LHD who can play on the right.

 

Kronwall - Smith

DeKeyser - Niskanen

Ericsson - Marchenko


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Nev is hitting it on the head, imho. I liked what I saw of Oulette last season, and didn't remember much of Marchenko prior to his injury since I don't get to see much of the Griffins here in PA. If Marchenko is at least equal to Oulette, I'd be cool with givIng him a shot. That's realistically as close as the Wings are likely to get to the 3 righty and 3 lefty combo Babs has spoken of in the past.

That's one way of putting it. ;).
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

None of the above


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!

That would be such a fantastic defensive lineup.

As much as I would like a German Red Wing it's Niskanen for me. Younger and righthanded he has to be the first choice. But if we cannot land Niskanen it will be of course Erhoff above everyone else.
