In Topic: Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

I don't care how much Ott wanted to be a Red Wing. I still hate this signing. I remember a few years ago when Cleary was still on the team and the overriding sentiment was that he was better than any AHL alternative would have been. Then he went to the AHL and was just as bad as he was in the NHL. That's exactly how I feel about Ott. He's pretty much washed up. I'd MUCH rather have Callahan in that spot. He can do everything Ott can do, but more cheaply. AND he'd probably score more given how underrated his offense is.

Let me start by saying that I don't mind seeing these sorts of players rise to the top via our own farm system.


That said - why does Holland sign guys who are arguably beyond their worth who'll potentially get no ice time  - to potentially clog up our roster in Detroit, or GR?


Just another bad signing IMHO.

52%, 12 US born players, 11 Canadian



To add...I wouldn't be too surprised if Team NA takes on Team Canada for the gold.

Found on Erica Ott's twitter page @EricaRene4  Steve Ott's 8th grade "ideal self" poster he made up. This is why he is an honorary member of the Michigan Mafia. Got to love him!


Hmm - nothing on that poster about becoming a loathsome ****** bag...

I miss the Central Division

I miss the Norris/Smythe/Patrick/Adams divisions along with the Campbell, and Wales conferences.
