#2681391 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

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.

Yzerman is taking care of Stamkos and Hedman... while KH is taking care of Helm, Miller and Marchenko


To be fair, we don't have a Stamkos or Hedman to take care of.


#2680873 Darren Helm re-signed: 5 years, $3.85m AAV

Whatever, I like helm. And with the high interest in him, he would've gotten more on the open market. Seems like a pretty tradable contract even a few years from now.

I'd like to sign Okposo, but for nothing close to $7M X 7 years... Massive overpayment in my opinion...

Offer sheets are a terrible idea in general, and Holland hasn't nor will he make an offer sheet on a player, plain and simple. There's zero chance he would offer sheet Kucherov, and piss off Yzerman...

 

With Stamkos gone, I'm really hoping we go after Backes on a short term (2-3 year) deal. We desperately need a number one center to fill in for a couple years while Larkin gets adjusted to the position at the NHL level. I think Backes is the best option available in free agency, and I'd prefer to hold onto our assets to make a trade on the back end, rather than up front.

 

Not going to be quite as exciting tomorrow with Stamkos off the board, but I'm still interested (afraid) in what Holland will do with all of this cap space, that he freed up...

Lucic is believed to be on Detroit's want list. Stamkos and Frans Nielsen are ahead of him on the list, but he's a man of interest for DRW.

The same argument could be applied to Detroit. Lets hope he doesn't value the city to highly as Toronto would win in a landslide compared to the other two.

one thing Buffalo doesn't have is the 25 year streak and franchise history. That should be enough reason to rank Detroit higher than the rest. But I'm biased ;)

Bettman read the wrong name.  It was Kessel.

How the hell does Fleury get to raise the Cup before Kessel or Murray?

Pittsburgh has never won the Cup on home ice.  

 

Although they had a chance in the 1995 Finals before the game was interrupted by terrorist attacks in OT of game 7.

To put things into perspective, Jurco played every game in November of last season and scored 1 goal and 1 assist.  He also played every game in February and scored two goals.  That's 24 games, in two 12 straight game segments.  So while I agree that he's seen spotty usage at times, he's also seen prolonged usage at times as well.  In neither case has he produced to the extent that he should given his skill set.  He may need more time, and maybe he'll get it, but he's been undeniably disappointing thus far in his career. 

 

For comparison's sake, Teemu Pulkkinen played every game in October a scored 4 goals and 2 assist, and every game in November and scored 2 goals and 3 assists.

Two bad goals given up by Murray.  Sharks are back in the series.  

 

That OT goal was straight up a well placed shot, while screened by his own teammates. Can't fault Murray for not being 6'8" there. Agreed on the tying goal, however.
