In Topic: Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Today, 04:12 PM

Radulov would not score less than 40 points in the NHL in a full season. That just won't happen even in our anemic offense. The guy is a two-way (this I'm not sure about but he did gather Selke votes in the NHL) stud who dominates his league and in international competition. When the NHL stars went over there during the lockout his production was right below Malkin and above guys like Datsyuk.  It's not unreasonable to think he'd be a top 12-15 winger in the NHL near the level of someone like Panarin or Kucharov. Most russian fans put him above those guys anyway. I don't think he'd produce as well as Panarin beause not every team has a Kane to play with. The issue isn't this guys talent.. it's that he's a grade A ******. Typically that isn't our style.

50-58 points on a team like ours. 60-70 points on a top 10 team. And in today's unfortunate NHL that's big time first line status.

Kip's scenario is pretty much the dream (maybe the ultimate dream would include Stamkos). I think we all know how it's more likely to end up..

Tatar-Sheahan-Hudler (he's a UFA right?)
AA-E.Staal(our traditional past his prime allstar signing)-Jurco

one of our Griffins that ran out of options-March


I took Quincey out as I'm not cynical enough to believe Holland would keep the same D lineup and completely let our guys out of options out the door. I'd imagine the capspace would be needed as well.

I can't really decide who to root for but it'll be some great hockey played. I'm just glad the Kings, Ducks, and Hawks are out.

It's too bad really as I was really looking forward to a new arena. I love the history at the Joe but the place is really a dump these days. I guess be careful what you wish for. I agree with others that the biggest kick in the nuts is the stupid LC logo is replacing the beautiful LED lit Winged Wheel. Way to get the fans hopes up with that one.

Any requests for any other glorious Red Wings playoff appearances?

Don't have to make these I'm just more or less reminiscing. Draper's OT goal vs WSH, Maltby's 3 blocks without a stick vs STL, Helm's shift vs Chi, Z's Conn Smythe shift, etc. Dmac's goal in 97 is a no brainer.
