#2312715 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 02 July 2012 - 10:36 AM

Why must we be so old every friggin' season? :unhappy:


Yes we are so old... that's right. We just retired a 39 year old and a 42 year old, but we're old as s***!

People just keep talking without realizing they are spewing garbage.

The Wings average age with all current roster players as of June 2nd, 2012 is 28.35 years.

Compare that to Pittsburgh... they come in at an average age of 29.32, even with their young stars.

If I missed anyone, it shouldn't have that huge of an effect on the calculations:

Detroit: Abdelkader, Bertuzzi, Brunner, Cleary, Datsyuk, Eaves, Emmerton, Ericsson, Filppula, Franzen, Gustavsson, Helm, Howard, Kindl, Kronwall, Miller, Nyquist, Quincey, Samuelsson, Smith, Tootoo, White, Zetterberg.

Pitt: Adams, Cooke, Crosby, Dupuis, Engelland, Fleury, Jeffrey, Johnson, Kennedy, Kunitz, Letang, Lovejoy, Malkin, Martin, Neal, Niskanen, Orpik, Park, Sullivan, Sutter, Vitale, Vokoun.


#2309981 Peter Mueller

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 26 June 2012 - 09:45 AM

I would take Mueller in a heartbeat.... The kid is very good, and highly skilled. He has just had bad luck with injuries, but he is still young and I'm sure we could pick him up without breaking the bank, obviously. Of course, I mean this as a move if we cannot obtain Parise, Semin, or Ryan via trade.

Bobby Ryan was a second overall pick. 4 straight 30 goal seasons. He is 25 years old. Do any of these prospects have that kind of a start in them? Or are we guessing? I don't like guessing. He is signed, we know his cap number, it's all right there. You know what you're getting, you know where to slot him, he can start Game One and finish Game 82 for the next 10 years if you want. That's what we need...in MY opinion. NHL stud talent, not maybes.


Yes, I completely agree with you, but it takes two teams to make a deal happen. If Anaheim doesn't like what pieces we have to offer, then no deal... and that is not a stretch to imagine that could be the case. You also don't know how serious they are about trading him. They could just be kicking the tires to see what's out there.

no doubt. teams need to get fleeced in trades for one to get better. its not often that a trade turns out AMAZING for both teams. dog eat dog. holland just refuses to play with the dogs.


Please just stop assuming things.... you're just coming off stupid. It takes two to tango, and If the Wings don't necessarily have the same pieces that other teams would offer, then no deal will get done. To think that Holland is not playing right now, is asinine. He enjoys his job, I'm sure he wants to keep it.

Chill!

What a classless bunch of dir-tards... Seriously Pen fans, boo at first, and then shut the hell up. We get it, they're your rival, but this isn't about the teams, it's about the young kids getting opportunities.

Lord, I hate Pittsburgh...


#2308754 Trade Ian White?

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 22 June 2012 - 12:21 PM

Why would we get rid of white again? I must of missed something...


Just speculation that we could get rid of White to guarantee Schultz a spot in the lineup.... silliness is all you're reading.


#2308743 Trade Ian White?

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 22 June 2012 - 12:03 PM

no way i know quincey has struggled but i think he'll have a bounce back year , i think hes a better defensemen overall i really cant see ian white coming back after the next season he just looked good cause of lidstrom

I would much rather guarantee schultz a spot on the team and put him with smith if it meant losing him to another team and getting rid of white to make it happen


It's just not going to happen. The Wings don't guarantee rosters spots, especially to someone who has never played a professional-level game.... It doesn't matter how good he's "projected" to be, it just won't happen. The kid is going to have to come here ready to battle for a spot, and if he is as good as people make him out to be, he'll be on the roster.

While I can see the value in trading White, I would only see him being traded in a multi-player deal for someone who improves the team. White is a solid d-man, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how well he does this upcoming season.

Same can be said for Quincey, I'm not as high on him, but I am willing to give him a shot and see how he performs with a full season and being used to his linemates and the Wings playing style. He showed he can play a pretty damn good game in LA and Colorado, so we'll see.

This is in no way to be taken as me saying we shouldn't take a run at Schultz... I think we'd be foolish not to, but there are 29 other teams doing the same and I'm sure many who will guarantee him a spot, regardless of whether we do or not.


#2308590 Red Wings Prepared to Offer Hudler Contract

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 21 June 2012 - 10:09 PM

Reality check.. Hudler most recently made what? 2.8 million? There isn't a chance in hell he'll play for us at 3 million, so let's just clear that up right now. He'll easily get 4 million with several other teams, and that's why we should just stop talking about him. He's all about the money, and one dimensional.... I'd much rather let Nyquist/Sheahan have his time and see what they can do. I'd also like for us to stop wasting Eaves away on the 4th line, the guy can pot 20 goals if you give him he time and linemates.

Jaff Halpern will not return to the Caps next season.


Source?


#2305812 Andrei Markov

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 07 June 2012 - 12:54 PM

I would take a chance on Markov... the guy has extreme upside if he can stay healthy, and that's the biggest draw with him (IF). Still, maybe the different style of hockey in Detroit could help him not be so injured all the time, not to mention, he wouldn't have to have the pressure of being "the guy" here.


#2297318 Where does Bertuzzi fit?

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 26 April 2012 - 03:59 PM

Bertuzzi WILL be on the third line, while filling in the top 6 when injuries or slow production occurs. He will also assume Holmstrom duties in front of the net on the powerplay from time to time.

And he is a solid guy to have in the bottom 6 with some specialties that do help the squad. He is not by any means a slug out there.. he skates well enough and won't be pushed around. I'm happy to have him as a 3rd liner who can put up 35-50 pts.


#2253097 What to do about goaltending

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 06 February 2012 - 06:23 PM

Why not kill 2 birds with one stone if you are looking at Nabokov as an option. Make a trade for Nabokov and Moulson/Okposo... I know that it seems unlikely to get some of the players from NYI since they are younger, but man it would be pretty sweet to get a bigger winger like Moulson...

Just an idea.


#2200093 Draper or Hudler?

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 21 July 2011 - 12:41 PM

Hudler... still has potential to be traded and possibly could improve in a contract year. We could technically benefit off of him playing stronger this season, but i'm not counting on it.

I like that Draper is leaving and we have Mursak coming in. I think Mursak will be a great player with us. He's pretty much Helm with better hands...


#2197913 RFA/UFA Signings

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 11 July 2011 - 04:00 PM

I don't disagree that they are but huge pussys, but at least Semin's ***** squirts and I can enjoy it more! :blink:

Hudler is just a useless dried up ***** that not only doesn't hit or battle for the puck, but cannot score for crap. So they are both pussys, but Semin at least scores...and unlike Hudler, if you put Semin on Datsyuk's line, he will flourish...


Creepy ass response, but I completely agree with the player comparison.

I'd bring on Semin for a 1 year (tryout).
