Cleary fits in Grand Rapids




#2530783 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Ferraro has no future here...Glendening and Callahan have passed him in the system so far as 4th "grit" players go...so he'd probably welcome a trade.  If the Caps will take him and a pick (I agree that a 4th or maybe a 3rd) should do it.  If the Caps insist on a guy like Tatar or Jurco, then I'll say no thanks and take my chances that Marchenko is ready to be a puck moving RH defenseman.




#2529965 Hockey News: Red Wings D hunting

Posted by Shinzaki on 04 July 2014 - 12:59 PM

I fully expect Marchenko to be on the roster next season replacing Kindl or Lashoff.

 

Smith-Kronwall

 

DeKeyser-Ericsson

 

Marchnko-Quincey

 

  or

 

DeKeyser-Marchenko

 

Quincey-Ericsson.




#2529359 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Quincey was NOT the "worst player on last year's blueline".  Far from it...he was actually very solid the 2nd half of the year defensively.   Lashoff and Kindl were worse...much much worse.  Kindl took a giant step backward last year.




#2529252 Can Z and Pav do anything to protest? (not that they would)

Posted by Shinzaki on 02 July 2014 - 12:00 AM

I hope the don't do an Occupy the JLA....all that fecal matter, burger wrappers and patchouli oil messing up the seats...we don't need that.




#2529196 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

We have three RH DMen at GR....Marchenko and Jensen are 2nd/3rd pairing types and are ready or close to it.   Sproul has a chance to be a top pairing guy, but he needs at least another year at GR.  I'd be fine with waiving bye bye to Kindl and Lashoff if Marchenko and Jensen look ready in camp.

 

I said earlier this year I'd be good with re-signing Quincey if the price was right...a two year deal for 8.5?  Close enough for me....




#2528957 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

And no...Quincey isn't as bad as most of you think..he probably plays the body around the cage (position and leverage vs a stick in the ribs) better than anyone on the roster.  Is he an offensive dynamo?  no...he is not, but he isn't the disaster most people portray him to be




#2525637 Adam Almquist signed with KHL club

Posted by Shinzaki on 25 June 2014 - 08:31 AM

Eh...he wasn't going to plya in Detroit this year and the Wings retain his NHL rights.  If he develops physically and adds a little bulk...they an revisit his status down the road.




#2525194 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Shinzaki on 23 June 2014 - 08:07 AM

Jurco plays with an edge...just ask Alexei Emelin.




#2525153 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Shinzaki on 22 June 2014 - 06:18 PM

Jurco is small? He's 6-2" and close to 200lbs as a 21 year old....by the time he's 25  he should be 210-215Lbs at least.  

 

I'd rather trade Pavel and Hank for youth and picks than trade youth for a declining player like Thornton.




#2523900 Wings sign Tomas Nosek to 2 year entry level deal

Posted by Shinzaki on 14 June 2014 - 08:41 PM

Yep..if you wear that winged wheel...I root for you...even Franzen. 

 

Tatar...Nosek...Juurco.  The "Czeching Line"




#2523880 Wings sign Tomas Nosek to 2 year entry level deal

Signing this guy replaces our lost second round pick....well done, Kenny Holland




#2522675 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by Shinzaki on 03 June 2014 - 08:08 PM

He's big, he creates space by often drifting away from areas where he is likely to come into contact with an opposing player....

 

He's a third line floater making top six money.




#2522671 Redwings great R/H D men.............?

Posted by Shinzaki on 03 June 2014 - 07:50 PM

Chelois can't come back...Babcock dislikes Americans...it's like he's Keri Russell or something.




#2517810 NHL lacks class.

Posted by Shinzaki on 27 April 2014 - 08:19 PM

Didn't say big equals unskilled...I said "fighters" in today's NHL are basically numbskulls with little skill.  And that's largely by design.    I don't define "tough" as fighting.  I think tough is winning the battles in the corners and between the dots.   How many shots did we take from the left point?   How many shots did Boston take between the dots?   They got there by being stronger and paying the price.   That's what irritates me the most about Franzen.   the big Mule...230 or so lbs and he plays like a 185 lb guy from France.
