Don't mention that piece of s***'s name again. 


Darren McCarty.

This is a RED WINGS FORUM. And he was a RED WING. LOVED by most Red Wings fans.

Go be bitter somewhere else. On the Colorado forums or soemthing.

Worthless and it's only gonna take away Mantha/Pulk


Unless Pulk starts producing here in the big pond he will be gone

I won't GTFO for being right. McCarty is human trash. He f***ed some high school girls while he was married IIRC. Worthless hockey player as well, just like every other tough guy.

 

Good read about McCarty here: http://detroitsports...outh/#more-5642

 

Boy are you a bitter person.  


I agree that a tough guy doesn't help us win. What we need are tough hockey players. Like an Abdelkader with a bit more talent. We need guys who can hit and clear space more than guys who will fight.

 

He's an agitator not really a fighter anyway.  Love the agitators.




#2681823 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

In what regard?  Less wear and tear?


He knows the eastern conference and has played against these teams for a while, think it works to our advantage


#2681812 Thomas Vanek signs 1 year, $2.6m deal with Detroit

If signing Stamkos would've been an A+, these 3 signed today is a solid B+.

Helm is C-....

It's embarrassing that people do t think of this. They just assume the players want to come to Detroit.

No what's embarrassing is not accepting the cold hard truth which is a real rebuild. I would have been fine with doing nothing today because there isn't anyone who can help this team. More and more players don't want to come here they'd rather sign in Buffalo, Edmonton if this isn't a clear indication I don't know what is.

With the prices being paid today maybe someone would have traded for Z or Kronwall

He was a top five prospect in many rankings for much of last year. He's exactly what the Red Wings don't have in the pipeline right now. Much more upside with Chychrun than a project like Cholowski. Trading Pavel's contract does nothing for the Red Wings if you don't use the cap space or even worse, spend it poorly now. It was only for one year and the team isn't going anywhere regardless. 


We have a few guys in the system that project to being a 3 or 4. Cholowski has the potential to develop into a #2. If we were to stay at 16 I would have wanted Fabbro.

VADIM SHIPACHYOV....
 

Anyone know anything about this guy?  Seems he may be available to come to the NHL this upcoming season.  He's a center who has pretty good stats in the KHL.  

I'm sure the Hawks will sign him and he will win rookie of the year.

The problem with the Redwing's is they truly lack scoring and that's a big issue. Losing Datsyuk is a big whole and when your leading player in points last season is a declining Henrik with just over 50 it's not looking great. Young players are coming and the development process is there and evident but you gotta score to win in this league, our defense is not elite enough to break even on our lack of producing. Martin would be fantastic, but would fit in a lot better when there's a solid depth of scoring and he can chip in those 10+ goals when times get cold. The biggest need this off season is evident, scoring, scoring, and scoring (and if luck had it, aquiring a top 2 defenseman). Depth is on the back burner until we solve the bigger issues.

Holland was already talking about "Cholowski going to St. Cloud St for the next 4 years." Then 1-2 in the AHL, that makes 5-6 years from now. Because of the crap teams that drafted Gauthier Jones, and Chychrun each has a better than 50-50 chance of being in the NHL next year. Same with Rubstov. All 4 will have played at least 1 game by the end of the 2017/18 season. meanwhile Cholowski will be a sophomore in college with 2 years to go.

Even IF we drafted Jones or Chychrun (lets focus on Chychrun), you really think the RED WINGS would have let them join the NHL next year? They forced themselves with Larkin because Datsyuk was leaving and thankfully it worked out because Larkin ended up being really good. Larkin is a once in a blue moon situation. 

 

You're just arguing for the sake of arguing. Don't kid yourself thinking that the number 16th pick would have been in a Red Wings jersey next year lol. We all know he would have been in GR. Most teams would have probably started Svechnikov this year but the Red Wings are likely to keep him down in GR for the next two years. And he's not even a defenseman (who typically take longer to develop)

 

If Cholowski does really well in college hockey he could end up here sooner rather than later. College programs are really good development processes anyways.

 

Like it or not, the Red Wings defense prospect pool just got thicker. It's been their goal all year heading into the draft and they weren't going to change that. They also addressed a secondary need by signing a bigger players.

Givani Smith certainly would not have been available in the 5th-7th rounds... I really like that pick a lot.

 

I know right.  People around here ***** and moan for YEARS about how we never draft any tough, gritty, abrasive forwards.  So we draft an 18 year old who's 6'2, 200+ lbs., leads his league in penalty minutes, and is big and tough. 

 

What do people do?

 

***** and moan.

Hahaha who the hell is saying they know better than Holland and co. about any of these picks?


Read the thread. Lots of complaints because he didn't pick who the "experts" wanted. Same as last year.

I can't wait to come back to this thread in 6-7 years when one of these guys turns out to be a draft steal. The Wings are know what they are doing when it comes to drafting. Have a little faith.
