In Topic: Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

01 July 2015 - 06:57 PM

Good signing. It's a contingency plan, with the worse case scenario is a 40 point 3rd line center. We weren't going to use up all our cap space, and Brad Richards is a very reliable, experienced center. This is a nice low risk move I like it.

We need to grab a top 4 defenseman this off season, Green would be the dream, but Petry, Franson, or Visnovsky could work.(if he'll take a pay cut).


Mike Fisher or Joel Ward would be a good grab forward wise, doubt either is leaving their teams though. 2016 seems like a much better year forward wise in free agency. E. Staal, Kopitar, Lucic, O'Reilly, Stamkos, Kesler, Plekanec, Backes, Eriksson, Ladd, Okposo, Voracek, Ruutu, and Hudler sure deals are going to get done for most this guys, but all it takes is one.


Trading is where we'll have to make a splash, we have prospect depth, we need scoring consistency. There are too many possibilities to speculate, but I'm ok with parting with some prospects for some top 6 size and scoring, or top 4 defenseman that can move the puck.

What a shot by Kronwall nice.


Really needed to get off to a good start this period.

In Topic: Going To My First Wings Game - Suggestions?

I didn't want to make a separate thread for this question and it seemed sort of relevant to the topic, but sorry anyway for hijacking the thread. Where do you guys usually park? I used to park over at Cobo but I recall last time I went I wasn't able to, and wondered if this was still the case?

Park at the greektown casino garage and take the people mover. Really this works with any garages near the people mover like the Zlot, compuware, and book cadillac garages. Also look into valeting the car near a restaurant/casino near the people mover to make it easier as well. you can also park at Nemo's, Tommy's, Hard Rock, Old Shillelagh, Cheli's, Hockeytown, and Anchor Bar among many others that will transport you to the game in a shuttle. You could park for free at the MGM garage and use Uber/Cab to the game. Plenty of options. 

In Topic: Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Yep, we've got our two 35+ year olds. We're good.

Like that matters. We are a young team right now. 


07-08 We had 2 40+ year olds and 7 other 35+ year olds and won the cup.

Right now our team has 5 35+ year olds. With the Cole, Zidlicky addition.


What are you going to be negative about next so I can refute that too?
