#2188924 Changes in the offseason

Posted by Majsheppard on 24 June 2011 - 03:07 PM

It feels like, gut reaction... that VFil will get traded tonight along with Hudler for something. Just pure speculation on my part. It just feels like I think Holland has a battle plan.

I think it going hard after three pieces.

I also have a feeling that Holland's going to swing a trade.


#2188697 Hudler's Future

Posted by Never_Retire_Steve on 24 June 2011 - 12:56 AM

Why don't we try and figure out how Hudler works in this system instead of all these hypothetical trade situations? I think Hudler can work here but I'm not really sure how yet. If he doesn't than good riddance but the focus should be on player development from a team's perspective rather than just trying to trade everyone and honestly, this is an area that the Red Wings organization does very well at.


#2188120 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

Why is everyone hating on Jagr?
He still is better than any winger we have.


#2187226 Lidstrom agrees to 1-year, $6.2m contract

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 June 2011 - 12:25 PM

This is terrible news.

Ericsson is clearly ready to become the number one D-man on this team (and has for a while), and this Lidstrom guy keeps holding him back every year with these comebacks.

It may be time for Big Rig to take his talents elsewhere.


#2187207 Lidstrom agrees to 1-year, $6.2m contract

Posted by Majsheppard on 20 June 2011 - 11:59 AM

If this is his last year....
I would have been happier if he said I will come sign after Holland is satisfied with his roster, no matter how much is left for me. However, I never expected that to be the case. It would have been something I would have done because I love this team.

However we often forget that Lidstrom loves his family. That has to be a bigger love, and would most likely lead to me wanting to build the biggest nest egg ever.

I am not going to get into a class warfare mode here, but either way we should be happy. One last shot for Lids, whom we owe as much to him as anyone.

With the cap going up and Lids in place, I want us to get the best players in the world.

I don't care if people scoff.

Bieska, Wiz, and Brad Richards.

I will take that in a heart beat. Sign people now and trade them next year for all I care, let us go at the cup.

Stanley or Bust.

Again too steep.

$6.2 mil, he must like losing in the Semi's.


Yeah, because a difference of 1 or 2 million is going to keep Detroit from making it in the playoffs.

Do you think he is worth LESS than Seabrook? Seabrook is being paid 5.8 next year.

#2186612 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

Umm Dallas Drake? Reichi? Having guys come in like that helps win the Cup a lot more than it doesnt... Sure, this past year the whole Modano signing did not help, but I think a reason for that was his crazy ass injury that he got. Signing Jagr to a reasonable price could be the difference maker for this Red Wings team. From what I hear, the Wings are looking into signing Wisnuski (however you spell it), and there is NO WAY he gets Rafi's 6 million. Also the cap is projected to go up to 63 or possibly 64 million dollars, therefore Kenny does have some money to spend.

IMO Kenny could afford to sign Wisnuski to help replace Rafi to around 4 million bucks, and use that extra 2 million to sign Jagr, and then they can still sign a good depth Dman. I don't care what anyone says, Jagr has all the talent in the world, but he also has tremendous heart (see the Rangers a couple years ago... he was the ONLY one trying all he could for that team in the playoffs) and I think his skill and his heart and his determination would fit very well into the Wings system. Imagine the lines!

Homer- Datsyuk- Jagr
Bertuzzi- Zetterberg- Franzen
Cleary- Filpulla- Hudler
Eaves- Helm- Abdelkator/ Miller

Lidstrom- Kronwall
Wisnuski- Stuart
Kindl- ?

Howard
Ozzie

That team looks like a very possible 2012 Stanley Cup Champions if you ask me...

Hey if I wanted to sit here and state completely realistic possibilities, it would make for a very boring discussion, so why don't you take your pessimistic sensibilities and go annoy some other people.

I think the vast majority here would agree with me...

also realism ≠ pessimism

There are plenty of UFA and trade options to discuss, so why dilute realistic discussions with impossible scenarios?

Well were at it, lets discuss the option of trading Howard for Ryan Miller straight up... come on now... :rolleyes:
