#2624036 Moving Jimmy Howard

Posted by Echolalia on Yesterday, 07:17 PM

Everyone seems to only remember the shutouts that Mrazek got, and completely forget the very next game when he was consistently pulled. Mrazek had one good playoff series and a very inconsistent regular season, and that's not enough to give him the number 1 job and get rid of the insurance.

#2624031 Moving Jimmy Howard

Posted by GoWings1905 on Yesterday, 06:20 PM

No. I wouldn't even consider it until next summer.

1. The Red Wings are a better team with both Mrazek and Howard than with any pieces they could possibly get for Howard.

2. Howard was a really good goalie until January last season and Mrazek hasn't seen the grind of a full NHL season yet.

3. What's the insurance policy if you trade Howard and Mrazek gets hurt?

#2624004 What's your roster lines ?

Trading Howard is dumb if we want to make a playoff run.  What happens if Mrazek gets injured?  Tommy McCollum would be our starting goalie. Think about that for a second. 

#2623682 Franzen back on ice

Posted by kipwinger on 21 August 2015 - 04:55 PM

How many points did franzen score in his last 25-30 game stretch of hockey? I don't remember because he was disappeared. Oh wait, it was 22. 22 points in 33 games. What a bum.

#2623419 What's your roster lines ?

Noted, I wasn't really articulating my position on Helm's usage very well.  I really like Helm on the fourth for matchup purposes, but I wouldn't object to him being on the third over Jurco.  At this stage in their respective careers I really don't think there's a significant difference between them on either line.  Take Helm of a line with Pav and Tatar and he doesn't score like last year.  Put Jurco with Pav and Tatar for most of the season and he probably doesn't look as bad as last year.  But either way, I'm not too heartbroken over who goes where between the two of them. 

False, Helm had 33 pts (15+18) and didn't play with TT and Dats the whole year. He had 32 pts. (12+20) in 2010-11 centering the 3rd line. or 20 pts. in 42gp last year. He's been pretty steady apart from injuries.


At this point of their careers Helm has outperformed Jurco in probably every possible way: points, PK abilities, faceoffs, etc.


I like Jurco and hope he becomes the power forward that fulfills his potential, but I'm a Helm fanboy and I think he is still very under-appreciated.

#2623215 Red Wings Sign D Robbie Russo

Robbie Russo sounds like the name of a 90's wrestling jobber.

There's got to be a trade coming...

#2623185 Red Wings Sign D Robbie Russo

Posted by krsmith17 on 16 August 2015 - 11:42 AM

Right handed shot defenseman with decent size and mobility. Over a point per game in his final year of NCAA. I like it.

Also, the highly touted Mike Reilly, that a lot of Wings fans wanted to sign, who eventually signed with the Wild, finished with one more point than Russo. Russo was selected 95th overall by the Islanders in the 2011 draft while Reilly was selected 98th overall by the Blue Jackets the same year...

I like this signing a lot...

#2623161 Abdelkader entering contract year, possible $4M extension?

Posted by DickieDunn on 15 August 2015 - 10:37 AM

If Andelkader is on a 20 goal 40 point pave again, he deserves $4 mil.

#2623140 Abdelkader entering contract year, possible $4M extension?

Posted by Richdg on 14 August 2015 - 11:49 AM

That is the market. 4-4.5 million per season is a fair deal. he does more than just score. he currently is our only F that even thinks about physical play. he is strong in his own end as well. datsyuk and Z love to play with the guy, why should any of us fans question this at all?


the bigger question in my mind is Helm. he currently makes more than Abby and also is in his walk year. Does he also get resigned and at what rate? if he worth 4 million +/- per year? I like helm but he is at his best as a 3rd line checking C. IMHO I would use him in a trade to upgrade the D.

#2622241 Free agents this off season

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 04 August 2015 - 12:20 PM

I have no clue what waiver options he has, but they might as well send Mraz back down to GR just to get some starts. It's gonna be the Jim Howard show as soon as the season starts.

That won't happen. We'd lose him if he were on waivers. 


I think it's silly to assume that the #1 tag belongs to either one at this point. Howard has the experience and Mrazek is surely held in high regards by Blashill. Unless an injury takes one of them out or one severely under-performs, there's no reason to believe that they won't split starting time.

#2621533 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 24 July 2015 - 07:16 PM

Pleiness is fairly reliable, in my experience. Brendan Savage is actually the beat writer who disputed the rumor that Jurco was going to sign this deal. He said that a "source" was insisting that Jurco and the Wings were very far apart as of yesterday.


Pleiness actually said the same thing yesterday. Some times they get it wrong, Holland loves smoke and mirrors. Just glad everyone is under contract now.
