Fits for our extra forwards

05 July 2013 - 02:32 PM

Compliance buyouts are now done so where do these extra expendable forwards go? (especially since we're interested in Morrow now apparently??)

 

Assuming the lines look like this:

 

Z-D-Abdelkader/Brunner

Franzen-Weiss-Alfie

Nyquist-Andersson-Tatar

Miller-Helm/Emmerton-Eaves/Tootoo/Bert/Sammy/...

 

Since we didn't buyout Bert I assume he stays on the team, which leaves Eaves, Tootoo, Sammy, and Emdog. We sign Brunner (which I really hope we do) and that's another forward.

Where could these players potentially end up?

Tootoo- Montreal, Phoenix, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Dallas

Eaves- Winnipeg, Florida, Tampa, Carolina

Sammy- Anywhere that will take him for the love of God... Calgary? Maybe NJ or Colorado?

Emdog- I actually really hope we keep him because he's so cheap and Helm will not be healthy all season, I can almost guarantee. Maybe Tampa/Dallas because of the Red Wings connection. 

 

 

 


Babcock rumours?

26 April 2013 - 07:20 PM

 

Some wild speculation surrounding Mike Babcock's future with the Red Wings and his potential job prospects. More ahead on NHL on TSN.

 

That's from Darren Dreger's Twitter. One of the names I always trust. Damnit I hope he isn't let go...
