#2676159 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Stamkos is a no brainier if he was willing to sign in Detroit. People defend Abdelkader's deal then say one of the best players in the game isn't worth a huge deal

l agree we need blue line to get better but Stamkos is another tier than those 3

 

Can't believe what I'm reading here people would rather have a known lockerroom cancer (Radulov) and some good - but not Stammer good - players instead of an elite center not even in his prime yet? Yes, the Wings priority #1 needs to be the blueline at all costs but other than drafting into the top 10 or trading for Trouba there is nobody available so the options here are (sadly) limited.

 

BUT all Stamkos would cost is money, guys of his ilk usually don't make to UFA and people would pass on that opportunity? Seriously the Wings also need to replace an elite #1 center in Pasha because the truth is Z's top 6 center days are over and if Larkin takes a bit of a step back, the Wings would be without a number 1 center. So Stammer would make a lot of sense. The funny thing is, I don't even expect to sign here but taking the afore mentioned guys over him? Wow that's just insane.

Like I said your getting rid of all our players/prospects and picks and just keeping non important guys putting them in the lineup (guys who won't be nhlers )

Only prospect we'd have left is like bertuzzi who's a 3rd-4th line guy, same as turgeon

And like I said jets are stacked upfront they would want nothing to do with adding more forwards from us for trouba

Yes datsyuk is aging .... But his linemates are helm and Richards , it's f***en sad and pathetic he had to play with those 2 in his last season most of the time

How do you expect datsyuk to rack up the points playing with those guys


Datsyuk WANTED Guys like Abby or Helm on his Wing. And at his age, he needs help with the dirty work. Do not understand why people still ***** about his linemates when it's what he wanted.

A lot of NHL players can score 20 goals if you put them in the right situation. The question is what else can they do? With Pulk, the answer is not much.

He played for some of those fun Wings teams in the late 80's.  




#2675295 Fixing this mess....

Posted by DatsyukianDekes on 07 May 2016 - 08:41 AM

I f***en hate when people always say ohhh we could of had that guy with the 48th pick instead of this bust we got! Stupid gm!

It's always nice to look back and what could of been but the same goes forgot every single team , what bugs me is hearing leafs media saying they traded seguin and Hamilton for kessel .... Id say yes likely seguin would of been drafted but no one knows who they would of taken in the 2nd round

Anyways like some have mentioned we traded away a lot of our first rounders and Lost guys to ufa like filppula hudler and traded guys like janmark(were gonna regret that deal for old man cole) and jarnkrok


Anyways I know nobody is "star" yet but there's reasons to be highly optimistic with guys like Larkin athanasiou mantha and some other kids we have coming up like bertuzzi svechnikov and a star goalie in the making in mrazek

Just have to get some help at d and just limit expectations for a couple of seasons while those kids get valuable playing time



On a sidenote .... If the wings get rid of Ericsson/Howard and get significant cap space I say we trade for Bryan bickell if possible and tray and get a 3rd or both of them and send them our 4th and a bottom prospect and send bickell to Grand Rapids if need be

That being said I know bickell is over paid but does someone know if that's the main reason he's not in the nhl now? For cap relieve? Can he skate enough to play? I know he had a big post season a few hears back and he's a big body that we could use , but I'd be more than content to get him and send him to the ahl if we could land a couple of 3rd rounders


We are not going to regret any deals. Get over the fact jarnkork and Janmark are gone. They wouldn't have helped us, and they certainly haven't proven anything either.

The red roof might have been an artists rendering, but they had no trouble showing it off to everyone last year.  It looked amazing.. now it's even worse than the name of the place.
 
I sure pray that the ceaser's character is one of those things liberals wake up offended by one day and force Illitch to change it back to the winged wheel.

I was just thinking that the other day. Where are the ****** saying the Caesar guy is offensive to Italians? Like the redskins and Indians?

Ken Holland will not be fired at least until after the Steak is broken.

 

No more steaks for Kenny. Its dog food from here on out. 




#2674174 The Missed Chances: '03, '04, '06

Posted by GoWings! on 28 April 2016 - 11:09 AM

The name Talbot will always haunt my dreams after 09. That being said, that 09 team is miles better than this one now. I miss those days. I really miss that 97-98 team. A whole lotta talent mixed with a whole lotta bruising coupled with a chip on their shoulders. That team had a lot to prove and they did it back to back. I guess you can say those losses stung but I remember the Devils Cup sweep and our amazing year in 96 only to be stopped by the scummy Avalanche and those really pissed me off. That 02 team was stacked though. Can't win them all I used to tell myself. Good times. Now it hurts that we barely squeak in and are out in a round every year.

Can't say I'm surprised, but I can definitely say I'm disappointed. At least be a little more clever about it, that seems like a name a 4 year old would come up with.

Basically. It was supposed to be a Red Wings arena but it's turned into a Little Caeser thing. Mike Illitch trolled us hard. 

 

Would be one thing if tax payer money wasn't involved. 

If Ilitch paid for the whole damn thing himself - call it whatever ya want.

 

Taxpayer $$$ being used, and this idea for nostalgia sorta led us to believe it wouldn't have any hokey name.

But that's just me. I'm a dreamer...who also played attention in civics class. Now if you'll excuse me, Living Colour's "Cult of Personality" just came on the radio and I need to go practice being slavish.

$5 says you were in diapers when that song came out in 1988.
