#2019107 Who's going to replace Lidstrom for next season

Posted by Guest on 25 July 2010 - 05:24 PM

You wouldn't notice it as much with a Weber/Doughty, some areas of the game would even be better, like down low around the boards, harder slapshot albeit maybe not as accurate, maybe not as possisionally sound...

Yeah but White doesn't even have 1/5 of lidstrom's abilities, gotta sign a future star D-amn tbh, with many years in the league left, Chara is getting up there 33 years old and have a massive contract already?


#2019093 Who's going to replace Lidstrom for next season

It's summer and boredom is killing us all, i was just thinking on who's gonna replace lidstrom when he retires, he will free up alot of space.. i can only think of a few worthy young replacements, they can't just hope ericsson will become a superstar all of a sudden, what's the Free agent class for next summer?

-Weber
-Doughty

Both are RFA though and Nashville even though they're a poor club will probably match anyway, but what if detroit offers him a 10year deal 8million early on and a caphit of 6.8 or something... Doughty will probably get a massive deal too...

or Tiger Williams' 3966 career PIM. I have a tough time seeing anyone doing 200 a year for 20 years unless Vince McMahon takes over for Bettman.


I thought that said Tiger Woods and then saw the number 3966 and then thought, "No way I'm sure Wilt Chamberlain has that number beat."

Christian Bäckman? God no, he's way too soft for NHL, he went back to play in the SEL last season and he looks good there but not a good fit for the nhl game

Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Holmstrom
Bertuzzi-Filppula-Franzen
Hudler-Modano-Cleary
Abdelkader-Helm-Eaves
Draper

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Stuart
Ericsson-Mckee/Hnidy/Other FA/Janik/Kindl/Smith(yes im very high on smith, not likely but surely not impossible)

Goodbye: Miller, Meech, Ritola(Dont wan't this but we all know they won't say goodbye to draper in his last year of his contract, typical Holland thing)

See no reason to complain, they can still get Modano AND a solid 6th Dman who can get the job done, and have 500k in capspace to bring up players on short-term injuries.

Thank you! Any mention of it comes back to track record.

I never said Holland was a bad GM. I never said that it made the Wings less successful.

If people would actually follow the thread of the conversation and not just jump in without knowing what the discussion is, they'd see I was responding specifically about how Holland has shown little to no interest in picking up players who fight as well as can play the game. He has built a certain kind of team. It is one where players who fight and mix it up are not a priority.


And again, I'm not saying I want the wings to model themselves after the Flyers. But I do believe this team could benefit from a little more sandpaper and a couple guys who can actually win fights when necessary.

To bring a fighter who who can play the game, that would definitely make detroit lose one of it's current top6 forwards, like Filppula.. is that worth it? maybe....maybe not... what players are you suggesting really? Fighter AND can play the game, not many of them in the league these days


#2018823 Osgood may retire following this season

Posted by Broken 16 on 24 July 2010 - 10:48 AM

So you found my saying I wonder just a it what would have happened and if Ozzie could have done it again "pure Osgood homerism" even though I said...we did the right thing by starting Howard? Wow, I'm glad I didn't say we should have started Ozzie...



Chill. I wasn't talking about you. I was responding to your post. Lets not start putting words into my mouth, k?



But of course we can wonder 'what if' just a bit. But to deny that we were in a dogfight in November to make the playoffs, like a few on here have already half-heartedly done, is pure Osgood homerism.



Reading comp is tech too... unless you are denying that we were in a dogfight in November, in which case the above line applies to you as well.

We compare him to nick lidstrom and he decided within a week or so


#2018786 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 24 July 2010 - 05:37 AM

why are people assuming that if modano signs with detroit he will automatically get more ice time than Helm or Abby? i understand that he will be penciled in at 3rd line center but last time i checked everyone had to earn their spot on the roster. if helm and abby outwork and outplay modano babs will give them more ice time, you think that holland isnt constantly looking for things to make the team better? competition is a very good tool that holland and babs can use to get guys to give 110% on every shift, and make sure that they will be playing in the next game. who knows maybe helm, abby, miller, draper, and eaves beat him out and modano becomes the 14th forward.

It's a bit interesting that Z and Emma are on the frontpage on nhl.com... do they usually do that when players get married?

And next to the wedding is a tribute to Z... nhl.com is a nice read atm!


They do when they're good looking enough apparently.

The New Jersey Devils are now interested in signing Mike Modano. Lou Lamoriello has offered a 17 year deal worth $20 million. Modano gets 1 million a year for the first 16 years and then when he turns 57 he gets 4 million.
