Too young lmao I wish f*** I remember all those scraps and more

Those 4 you named were hall of famers and pretty sure Zetterberg and datsyuk started at 21-23 so I wouldn't compare them , no ones saying Tatar and nyquist are superstars or mantha will be a hall of famer the fact is we tend to always play veterans more than some kids who can actually play cause we've just always preferred playing the vet over the kid

 

Then you should get this. When the Wings have young guys that can play, they play. When they have low draft picks that need seasoning, they are sent to the minors to to develop. You made my point for me. You're so focused on the overripe buzzword that you're missing the forest for the trees.

If the Wings drafted higher, if they drafted players with better natural, God-given talent, they wouldn't have to "overripen" kids. Larkin proved this. But if a kid has to spend 3-4 years in the AHL to develop, then, yeah, he's got to prove he can play in the NHL before he's promoted to full-time duty.

Pretty much our lineup will look like this:

Larkin - Z - Abdelkader
Nyquist - Nielsen - Vanek
Helm - She - Tatar
Miller - LG - Ott
Jurco
AA and Mantha = Grand Rapids

DeKe - Kronwall
Errorson - Green
Smith - Marchenko
Ouellet

 

I suspect a trade will be made for D help involving Nyquist or Tatar, so AA or Mantha (maybe both) will be up with the big club.


#2681714 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 01 July 2016 - 05:00 PM

Why would folks complain about the Vanek signing? People were suggesting we sign Staal to a "show me" deal. Isn't the same kind of deal Vanek just got? Short term, fairly low money. Let's see if Vanek wants to earn more in 17/18.

Assuming it will look something like this

Zetterberg nielson abdelkader

Athanasiou Larkin vanek

Helm sheahan Tatar/nyquist

Miller glendening ott

Or switch vanek with Tatar/nyquist

Knowing Ken holland and his bulls*** overripe Anthony mantha wil be in Grand Rapids regardless of anything he says to the media unless he's stupid enough to trade him


That will leave

Jurco pulkkinen frk nyquist/Tatar and I'm assuming jurco/frk will be 13th forward

Pulkkinen is gone ... Frk or jurco as well , I just hope none are through waivers and mantha is in Grand Rapids 100% unless he's dealt or Tatar and nyquist are both dealt which seems unlikely

So seems the wings keep on giving nothing to the kids ... Just the way holland loves it

 

Get a grip. "Over-ripe" is a euphemism for "isn't good enough." Look at Larkin. He played for the Wings as a 19-year-old rookie because he was good enough to do so.

Eriksson and okposo didn't want to come here. Is there anyway to sticky this so people understand Holland just can't sign anyone, there is 29 other teams.

6 million apparently gets you a 40-50 point 2 way center.

Also sticky THE OWNER AND MANAGEMENT WANT THE STREAK TO CONTINUE.

I don't think Yzerman would have been savior either. This team has been declining for 6 years and we need to stop duct taping this team together for the sake of a meaningless streak. The problem is Ilitch wants a competitive team when the pizzarena opens up so I don't see us blowing things up for another couple of years.

 

"Meaningless streak."

The owner and GM disagree with you.

I've heard that a lot but where is a proof of that? Wings are risking to turn into the Leafs or Canucks who for the longest time refused to rebuild. Vancouver still doesn't see the Eriksson signing.

If the order is indeed from Mr I than you are right Holland must follow the orders.

If they bring in some bought out guys in the hope they'll regain their form this team might as well get used to first round exits for a long time.

 

Proof is the Legwand trade.
Proof is re-signing middle of the road players.
Proof is striking out on Suter/Parise and Stamkos and then signing other teams' second tier vets.
Proof is over-ripening supposed can't-miss prospects like Mantha.
Proof is not committing to a genuine youth movement.

I really hope the Red Wings birthday presents to me aren't just a Nielsen signing and resigning of Helm and Marchenko.


Happy birthday!

It's too bad the kids play in detroit only when we're forced to play them

 

The Wings don't have any first-line future stars in the minors. This is why Detroit relies on the over-ripe philosophy. Don't people get this by now? Their young players aren't new versions of Yzerman, Lidstrom, Zetterberg, or Datsyuk. They're Doug Browns, Slava Kozlovs, Kirk Maltbys, and other good but supporting players. Expecting every prospect to blossom into an all-star is folly.

I care. I think it's something to be proud of. It's certainly not something that comes easy. It shouldn't be a goal unto itself and I don't think it is. 

 

Tanking would be something were I would embarrassed for the team and disappointed in the organization.

 

I've been saying the Streak is important for a long time. Usually no one listens or responds. Management clearly wants to extend the Streak. Fans need to accept this. They can rail and rant against it, but saying it doesn't matter is silly. It matters and our expectations should adjust accordingly.
