Right?  I just don't know how with all of our advances this could even happen, obviously ALL people will want to see ALL of the game.  The building cost 1.03 billion to build, this makes no sense

The building just straight up was not designed with hockey in mind. It's a basketball arena.

In Topic: Should the Red Wings Trade for Byfuglien?

I don't want to give up our future for the guy, but come on- he's almost exactly what we need. He's a top pairing d-man that can provide offense and a net front presence on the power play, which are the things we've lacked most since lidstrom and holmstrom retired. If we have the cap space to re-sign him, even if it's for a couple years too many, I'd do it. A first, a second, and a prospect isn't much to give up for that... we have more mediocre defense prospects and good forward prospects than we have available roster space for going forward, and datsyuk is gone after next year.


The contract he gets will be 4 or 5 years to many, not a couple. People complain about some of the contracts on this team now. Just wait until you see what the opinion is on Buff's contract to be come 2020.

No. It would cost too much for a rental. And signing him to the kind of contract he will no doubt get would be great for 2 or 3 years, but then would become a cap nightmare. Let him become somebody else's mistake. 

The only circumstance I'd like to see him as a Wing is one that will never happen. And that would be the same kind of deal Green signed with us.

Nice to see Green start to show up on the score sheet more regularly. Be huge for guys like he and Jurco to get it going.
