#2524598 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Son of a Wing on 19 June 2014 - 01:57 PM

Well, seeing as Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Franzen and Kronwall are all a year older and on the unhappy side of 30 expecting them to carry the team is becoming less and less feasible. Couple that with Nyquist likely not exploding this year, Sheahan returning to form and Tatar putting up similar numbers as he did last season and finally the the defense being mediocre they could easily be worse than last year.


You're always such a ray of sunshine.

I know I know...you're a realist...


#2522909 Dan Boyle's rights traded to the Islanders…..

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 05 June 2014 - 03:45 PM

I hope he signs so there is no chance the Wings end up with him

 

How comes?

 

Too old? Or more the fact that KH will probably sign him to a 3 year deal?

I still want him here, but trading a 5th (possibly 4th) for an impending, 38-year-old UFA... uh huh. Sounds like a Garth Snow move.

I hope Charter picks it up.




#2519637 So what do we have to trade?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 07 May 2014 - 03:47 PM

Ship off Howard, bring in Miller, give it 40 games next season before the "Miller = Average" thread goes up. He's aging, he isn't what he used to be. He wasn't that good in the playoffs this year, his numbers leave something to be desired. He'd come here, play about on par, maybe slightly better than Howard, but people will realize how much more of an impact the defense makes (if it is not much improved) over the quality of the goaltender. I think a lot of people cling onto how he was 5 years ago, the kind of goalie he was in the Olympics, the NHL superstar goalie, that isn't the Miller we'd be overpaying for and i'd rather see the money go into a better defenseman over a very mild upgrade over Howard for a much bigger contract.

 

It's honestly just my opinion, i've been wrong before, we all have at one point, but I think the focus is solely defense first and maybe one quality winger.

Ask the Canucks how easy it is to trade a goalie with a long contract

 

 

Right, because Roberto Luongo signing a 12 year contract as the age of 32 is totally comparable to Jimmy Howard signing a 6 year contract at age 29.  Totally.

Hi people. Just found this place while searching for Red Wings draft needs and considerations. Wow. Seems like a lot of people know what to do!! I think the main hole they need to fill is top line sniper. I wonder if Ovechkin talks are out of the question???


Welcome to LGW, home of some of the coolest and most obnoxious Wings fans on the innanets. Where everyone is an armchair GM, Franzen is lazy and he sucks, we like our team, and most online shopping is completed at disney.com.

Pull up a chair, you can be our deadline acquisition.

Welcome to LGW. Yes, we all know what to do. In fact everyone here agrees we should trade Franzen for Ovechkin straight up.


#2517281 ECQF - Game 5 - Red Wings at Bruins - 3:00 PM EST

Posted by gcom007 on 26 April 2014 - 05:45 PM

To be fair, Smith has been vastly improved in the last 3 months. Lets see if that's permanent first, shall we?

 

Smith was shockingly pretty good down the stretch here. If he can keep improving he'll be solid. But yeah, we definitely need to see if it can last before we get too excited. He's about the only Wing that seemed to really find that extra gear to shift into for the playoffs.

Not his 90 year old owner.  Probably doesn't even know we lost.  


OK, that's not really necessary. Chris Ilitch has already been running the show for years. He can fire KH whenever he wants, so blame him.

#2503449 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by Barrie on 30 March 2014 - 07:45 AM

We had no room for Jarnkrok. Who on this team would he replace? He would have still been in Grand Rapids next year too with Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Weiss back. When he'd finally get his shot, in 2015-16, he'd be 24. Plus there was rumors Jarnkrok was going to go home.

 

The Wings have fought and clawed their way back into a playoff spot the last 3 weeks, and Legwand has been a part of that. Holland turned someone stuck in Grand Rapids, or would go home, into someone who could help us now, and for the next 4 seasons.

 

If Jarnkrok's an NHL player, he has to prove it now, and that wasn't going to happen with the Wings. If he's playing well in Nashville, a team who could actually use him, then good for him for playing well so far.

 

Holland can't win, if he doesn't make a move people are upset, when he does, people are upset.

Maple Leafs fans are not pleased with the fact that they saw their playoff hopes lessened by, as they so eloquently put it, Darren F*****' Helm.
