#2686114 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by F.Michael on 19 September 2016 - 01:00 PM

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...

Less than $1,205,377 Nothing

$1,205,377-to-$1,826,328 Third-round pick

$1,826,328-to-$3,652,659 Second-round pick

$3,652,659-to-$5,478,986 First and third-round picks

$5,478,986-to-$7,305,316 First, second and third-round picks

$7,305,316-to-$9,131,645 Two firsts, a second and third-round picks

$9,131,645 or greater Four first-round picks

 

 

Unless Holland attempts to offer Trouba more than $5,478,986 - then I don't see the issue here.

 

This Dman the Wings just drafted this past June was projected a 2nd rounder...In other words - he's a total crap shoot, and we will not know what he's capable of for at least 3 if not 5 years from now.

 

For a guy like Trouba who's about to enter his prime, and who could very well be a top pairing Dman - I say go ahead, and offer the kid a contract.

Detroit doesn't have the money or the draft picks needed to do an offer sheet, even if Holland wanted to waste his time

Well - that's when you make them an offer they can't refuse...godfather.jpg

Which is why trading for someone in hopes that they'll get better is dangerous. Trouba, for instance, has played well over 200 games and gotten worse since his rookie year. Fowler too. So its pretty dangerous to trade your future #1 goalie based on that track record.

For the record - I've probably seen Trouba play several times in the past few seasons...From what little I've seen - he doesn't appear to have any glaring holes in his game, and at the tender age of 22 he's still maturing, and filling out.

 

The way I see it - any trade these days seems a risk, and if this club wants to have a legit top pairing Dman - it'll probably need to move an asset to get one in return.

 

All that said - I think we can agree that moving Howard plus player/pick/prospect/etc for that top pairing Dman would make us all happy campers.

That's harsh.  You're already in mid season form.  

I've had 2 hefty glasses of bourbon (while preparing dinner, and doing dishes)...That stuff is like truth serum.

Howard's mask should resemble a flat tire.




#2685083 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

Posted by F.Michael on 25 August 2016 - 10:23 PM

Nice goal....wish he would've had that effort last year. Thanks holland for not keeping him happy.

Lets be honest here...I honestly doubt Holland could've done anything to keep, or make Dats 'happy' while in Detroit.

 

IMHO - he's looked burned out these past few seasons, and now with a wonderful opportunity to play in front of his countrymen - I wouldn't be too surprised to see Dats have a solid season in the KHL.

Zetterberg should be playing a lesser role, 3rd line possibly. With PP time

Agreed.

 

It's time to see what the kids can do with more ice time.

What bothers me most is the fact that nobody seemed capable, or willing to stand up to this d-bag.

 

This guy would've had his lunch fed to him via a straw with a jaw wired shut had he tried that in N.America.

 

$5 says Abdelkader would've plastered that clown into the next week.

 

I haven't been in the offseason topic for awhile, apologizes. Fighting in hockey is just not needed anymore.

If the NHL ever got this pathetic - where one flunky terrorizes the entire opposition - I'll probably stop watching.

I'll be upset if he starts the year in GR.




#2684319 Fox Sports DET to stream DRW games online

The way I read this.. if you have a cable/satellite package that includes regional sports channels, you'll be able to stream NHL games. 

 

Therefore, if you have a Directv package with FSD, you shouldn't have to buy NHL Center Ice.. correct?

 

 

From what I got - it only works for those in Michigan.

 

I have DirecTV with the regional sports package, and every Wings game on FSD is blacked out - therefore I get Center Ice.
