Perhaps they were showcasing Ouellet for a deadline deal? Lets face it there are lots of reasons why the Wings brass do things that they don't tell all of us  :lol:

In Topic: Kronwall out 2-4 Weeks after Knee Scope

Kronner being out does hurt but lets face it he hasn`t been good this year so far. If the scope and a rest gets him back to playing like he can then thats what is needed. 

In Topic: Abby Signs 7-year, 29.75 mil Extension

That is the market-maybe below for a guy like him. In the end it will be 4-5 per year for 5 years with a option on it.


If we go back to the summer when talking about moves, I mentioned at that point in time I would move Helm+ to great either a true power forward or top 4 Dman. Point was while Helm is a good player that we all like, not sure we can resign him and Abby with both coming up on UFA and Abby going to get 4+ million per year. Can we afford to keep helm at 3.5 million +/-, which is his market rate? 8 million for the 2 of them and only 1 scores goals.


Helm is a player we all like but he is looking more replaceable all the time. IMO players like Glendening and Ferraro are a cheaper option. 

In Topic: Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

I think it`s a little early to judge at this point. I think this team looks lost between two systems Babcocks and Blashills. They need to quit thinking so much and just play!

I think Mule is the biggest question mark going ahead (besides Babs). The Wings have no idea what his status is at this point so even though his salary doesn't count against the cap they lost a valuable player that they can't go out and replace. 


I think Zidlicky and Cole are done with the Wings.


I can see Weiss and Smith for Phaneaf happening.


Goose has a lot to prove at the NHL level still IMO. I hope Kenny goes short term with him.


I think the Wings need to address a need for more scoring. Z isn't getting it done anymore, Tatar and Goose run hot and cold, and Pav can't shoulder all the weight.


Id like to see a lot less money in the press box next year.
