#2530588 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 08 July 2014 - 11:44 AM

What do you guys think of Ryan Malone? I haven't followed him too much after he left Pit, but could he be a in front of the net power forward type we could use?

 

I see Vancouver bought out Booth and he is a UFA.  Also, I would love to add Jeremy Welsh to our crop of young talent.  Other players that I think would be nice here INSTEAD of re-signing Cleary:

 

Heatley, Ott, Setoguchi and then the mentioned Booth and Malone..

Malone would basically be a 2nd Abdelkader on our team that doesn't hit as much.  Heatley is a bad idea...he's like a poor man's Franzen these days.  Ott would be great here with his assholey abrasive style.  Not too familiar with Booth these days.  Setoguchi....as a big Jets fan as well, I can tell you I am insanely happy to not have him on the Jets anymore.  He's lazy, he's soft and he misses the net more than Franzen.

 

So out of those guys, yes to Ott, but only if we can dump Andersson to free up a spot.




#2530088 Red Wings rookie camp roster revealed

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 05 July 2014 - 10:42 AM

So we have Pulkkinen, Mantha and Athaniesou fighting for roster spots?  I think that's something exciting to look forward to.  Don't sign Cleary, cause I'd much rather have a kid sniper, a guy that skates like Pavel Bure, or a 6'5 power forward with a nasty scoring touch.  And that's just at forward. @ Number9, the Wings brass was saying all year that Ouellet is the most NHL ready of them all currently.  Those plays you're referring to, you see those every time he laces 'em up.

Byfuglien could drink the entire NHL under the table, and then drive his boat home.

Great...2 more years of KFQ and with a raise nonetheless...  My stomach is upset.  I"ll be in the bathroom for 2 more years.  Thanks Kenny.  I'm out.

sjr2012 - I'd like to see Smith on the PP personally.  He's got the best 1-T on our team on D anyways.  If we had him on 1 pair unloading and Sproul on the other, I think we'd improve our PP considerably this season.  I didn't care too much about whether we got "top UFA's" or not, I just didn't want Q or Cleary back and want Kindl gone.  Those were the only moves that actually mattered to me this offseason.

I'd take Del Zotto over Kindl or Quincey any day of the week.  As far as Heatley or Setoguchi, I want nothing to do with either of those guys.  Vrbata is ok, but I'd also rather see Alfie back for 1 year and then Mantha up instead of getting him.  If I actually had things my way, I'd keep Mitch Callahan, promote Mantha if he shows he belongs, promote Ouellet and Sproul and then find a way to dump Kindl, whether it be a regular buyout or trade to a desperate team who cares, and then tell Cleary and Alfie to retire.

I want nothing to do with Vanek.  He's a Franzen like disappearing act.  He actually floats more than Mule.




#2527182 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 30 June 2014 - 12:05 PM

Niskanen is going to get a 7 year deal north of 42 million. Are you guys ok with that?

I'd be a lot more comfortable with 7 at 35 million.  In a different offseason, he'd get no more than that.  Not to mention that more Dmen are hitting the market so there's not quite as much supply and demand, even if he is the best RH Dman on the market right now.  I'd offer Boyle 2 years at 7.5 mil and wait for Sproul to QB our PP.




#2526607 NHL Draft 2014: Rounds 2-7 **MOD WARNING POST 51**

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 28 June 2014 - 12:10 PM

The only other thing I'd like to see this draft is for Kindl and Andersson to be traded so we can draft 4 guys in the 7th round :w00t:




#2526598 NHL Draft 2014: Rounds 2-7 **MOD WARNING POST 51**

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 28 June 2014 - 11:55 AM

Oh darn, a 6'5 LW....  He's way too big :lol:  And he got 39 points in 33 games last season. 

 

We haven't seen a draft pick under 6'0 in almost 2 drafts.




#2526557 NHL Draft 2014: Rounds 2-7 **MOD WARNING POST 51**

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 28 June 2014 - 11:09 AM

I'm not really seeing a downside to drafting big centres at all.  Most of our guys that play centre can play wing as well so it's nice to have the versatility.




#2524697 Trading up?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 19 June 2014 - 08:31 PM

If the Wings show enough loyalty to sign Dannyf****** Cleary....Z is a lifetime Wing end of story. You don't trade guys like that anyways.


#2522409 WCF: (6) California Dreamin' v (5) The Night Chicago Died

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 01 June 2014 - 10:19 PM

It's such a relief that there's 2 teams in the SCF that I like. Pulling for the Kings, but I won't be disappointed either way.
