#2678796 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

It seems like Hamilton could be available, I know he's piece of s*** but def upgrade will need to be addressed via trades he could definitely be nice addition.
For some reasons, I have a feeling that KH is going be agressive as this team is not playoff team. It's about time for KH to change philosophy

:lol: - to the bold.

 

On a more serious note - is Flames Dman Dougie Hamilton really available?

 

If so - send them Howard, and Smith...Git'er dunn  Kenny!

I have a feeling Detroit will have a deal in place for Datsyuk's contract with a team dependent on getting a big fish free agent to sign with Detroit. So I don't see it being traded till July 1st or after. Holland knows if he trades away good pieces and then strikes out in free agency he will be looking for another job.

Makes sense to me - although I've always felt Holland has job security regardless the outcome.

 

Why throw away a possible high draft pick, or a decent prospect just to shed salary if ya know there isn't a chance to sign any ufa...But on the other hand - if Holland does have a chance to swing a deal - he better hope the asking price for taking Datsyuk's contract didn't increase.

I sorta feel sorry for Subban...I hope he remains a Hab - although if he becomes a Red Wing - well then I might not feel sorry for him then  :)

LOTS of people think subban is gonna get traded in the next couple days. Edmonton, and van, are front runners. confrimed by bob mkenzie,,,,,we should be giving up a ton to ty to get him if this is true. there gm talks to the media in 25 mins

Ok...

 

So what is it with Subban?

 

Is it that he's charismatic, or maybe just a bit outlandish?

 

I recall hearing that he might be a 'problem' in the locker room, but hell - I'd take that problem child any day on the Wings.


Don't want Subban, I heard he was a turnover machine.

We all know you're being funny...

PK is a piece of s***

Now I do not know if you're being funny  :g:


He hates charity too...

Damn that wing at the childrens hospital named after him for the exceptional donation he made...Damn PK Subban!

You betcha!

pfft

 

Yeah - we all know you have an embroidered 'I heart Chris Chelios' pillow on your bed.


I couldn't see it either, it asked to download some app, eventhough I'm on a pc

 

Here's the Chart

Did you say the same thing about Dino and Chelios? 

Add Wendel Clark, Ulf Sammuelsson, and of course Todd Bertuzzi...

A slow piece of s***. But who cares, speed doesn't matter in hockey anyway.

I've seen Lucic play live a few times.

 

IMHO - he isn't slow - just that he's not as agile as most others in the league.

 

In other words - he's got respectable 'straight ahead' speed, just that if Lucic isn't driving to the net - he looks ordinary at best.

 

I'd want a Lucic from a few years ago, but now...Meh...He'll get his $$$, and chances are his production will drop.

#2678538 16-17 Farewell Joe Season Schedule

Posted by F.Michael on 21 June 2016 - 05:14 PM

I wonder by what percentage the tickets will increase this season, being the last season and all?  Would like to know as I plan on attending my first game this year.  

Urinating in the troughs will be a memorable moment for you...Wait - you are a guy - right?

Do people really think Stamkos is the 3rd best player in the league? I still think Crosby, Ovi, Malkin, Seguin, Benn, Kane are all better then him.

He's in that company - no doubt.

 

He'll still have the ability to hit 90 plus pts per season for the next 4, or 5 seasons (if he stays healthy).

 

There's nobody on the current roster that'll come close to that production, and he'll make others around him better.




#2677947 Datsyuk - someone who works for JLA told me he's sold his house

Posted by F.Michael on 17 June 2016 - 12:06 PM

I meant Babcock made the wrong choice because he will never have a chance to win again, but hey who cares when you can now wipe your a** with $100 bills... Babs is a great coach, but I was more than happy when he moved on.

That's the impression I got originally, but I honestly feel the Leafs will turn it around within a few seasons (especially if they sign Stamkos).

 

My take is that it's not up to Babs whether Stamkos is given an offer sheet - Shanahan/Lamoriello are running the show in TO.

I'd get a good laugh if he signed with the Sabres...It's certainly possible.




#2677865 NHL Chooses Las Vegas for 17-18 Expansion

Posted by F.Michael on 16 June 2016 - 10:20 AM

That and more importantly i believe a team will relocate to Quebec City ... Maybe Carolina Hurricanes

And don't forget Winnipeg got Atlanta during a hockey season so it's a possibility Quebec also joins Vegas in 2017-2018

This would be a best possible scenario.

 

Hopefully when a team does make it's way to QC - these bad boys are resurrected...

I honestly hope this gets wrapped up quickly...Before ya know it it'll be draft day, and UFA shortly thereafter.

Another reason to name the new stadium after Howe.  

Howe Arena, Howe Center, Howe Auditorium - all sound good to me.

 

RIP Mr Hockey
