#2676594 Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

I don't think we lose anything either because we get Maple Leafs 3rd round pick next season if we don't get it this season..?

#2676377 Datsyuk - someone who works for JLA told me he's sold his house

Posted by kliq on 22 May 2016 - 12:11 PM

To be completely honest, the more I think about it, I think Datsyuk going is a blessing in disguise.


We are not going to win the cup this year, our goal needs to be to complete the re-build and become contenders by 2018. If Datsyuk leaving gives us the ability to trade his contract and use that cap space to trade for or sign someone who can be apart of our core moving forward, that is a good thing!


This is not a slight on Datsyuk, the guy is one of the greatest Red Wings off all time, and watching him over the last 14+ years has been a privilege. But, in a re-build you need to look long term and Datsyuk regardless of whether he plays this year or not, is not apart of those long term plans. 


I look forward to seeing him get his jersey retired at the new building.

Larkin is going to be a stud.

I have to keep telling myself he's only 19.

Stamkos alone would be a successful July 1st

So, yeah, I'd say so :P

Free agency shouldn't even be a thought this year for a defenseman. Quincey should and hopefully will sign with another team, and no one else should be brought in, other than a top pair guy via trade...

#2676209 Mantha

Good point, and let's not kid ourselves, we missed a guy like Franzen this year big time. Imagine how well he would have contributed to offensive zone time, and as a result, total offense this year.

If Mantha becomes another Franzen I'll be thrilled.

#2676182 The Wings request permission to interview Todd Richards

I know it has already been talked about but here is more proof


a Richards Houda duo would definitely be solid

Sproul needs to at least get a shot out of training camp. I don't care so much if they lose Jensen, but it would be a tough pill to swallow if Sproul never gets a real opportunity on a team that has gotten nothing offensively from their d-men for years.

So we got rid of Bedard, who by all reports was close to Howard and Mrazek only had a "professional" relationship with. And we signed the guy Mrazek said he wanted. Howard, start packing your bags?

Praise was never close to as good as Stamkos.

Stamkos is a no-brainer, even with the clot issue.  1) I think there are multiple kinds of blood clot issues, not all of them are dangerous enough to be fatal risks, but I'm not sure.  2) If, God forbid, something did happen to him, he's young enough to not hurt us with a cap recapture penalty if he retires.  He's light years ahead of any other talent available, it's not even close, so Holland has to make a push.

I don't want to see Larkin or AA on the wing next season. They are future centers and need to be playing there. I agree with limiting Zetterbergs ice time though. in the scenario above I'd but Zetterberg with AA and Bertuzzi, Tatar with Larkin and Mantha, and Radulov with Stamkos and Abby. But honestly I don't really see us signing stamkos, so its a moot point.

I'm probably most happy for Sproul.  


Hope he gets a fair shot next year.

Bertuzzi with 3 goals, Athanasiou with a goal and 2 assists, Mantha with 2 assists, Svechnikov with an assist, Sproul with 3 assists and Russo with an assist and a fight. Future Red Wings. Gotta love it!
