#2619147 Nyquist Files For Arbitration

Posted by krsmith17 on Yesterday, 08:23 PM

I love how you list their weights as if it's part of the negotiating process... No way, Nyquist gets close to what you're suggesting. I'm willing to bet he gets a very fair contract, nothing close to what Saad is getting in Columbus...

#2617770 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by kickazz on 30 June 2015 - 09:54 PM


Honestly by making Weiss a winger I think he may have been trying to put him in a position to succeed by giving him less responsibility.  Weiss simply wasn't good.  It's telling that with a new coach coming in, Datsyuk injured, and no pressing cap issue, Holland still went ahead and bought out Weiss.


I somewhat agree with this, but it still doesn't explain the plethora of games he was scratched.. lol. 

#2617137 Free agents this off season

Posted by Euro_Twins on 28 June 2015 - 03:18 PM

as much as I'd like Holland to sign someone new this week, the more I read about going with the kids, the more I get comfortable with the idea.
I just wonder if they will indeed buyout Weiss and really give Larkin a shot at being in Detroit now.
Tatar - Datsyuk - Abdelkader
Nyquist - Larkin - Zetterberg
Jurco - Sheahan - Pulkkinen
Miller - Glendening - Helm
Kronwall - Ericsson
Quincey - Dekeyser
Smith - Marchenko
still would like to trade Smith and Weiss for a pick or two and then bring up Ouellet as well. Then keep Sproul and Jensen in GR for another year until Q and K are gone or dealt.

To be honest, I'd much rather have sheahan slotted at 2c and the rookie Larkin at 3c until he proves he is able to produce and keep up in the nhl

#2608405 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Can you guys at least pretend to be on topic and maybe just put "Babcock" at the end of your post?

The defensive pairings are just my guess right now, I'm guessing that Kindl would go in since he has more experience.

I want to see another one of these game sevens....


Or at least see whoever is in for Kronner get the game winner. LGW! Petr stands tall and the wings move on.

#2600062 Zach Hyman Won't Be Signing With Florida

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 24 April 2015 - 07:47 PM

If we don't find a way to get rid of Weiss, I have a feeling hell be the guy that pulks beats out for the job.
Iirc teemu is out of options next year, so I imagine it'll be like the Tatar situation at the beginning of last year...
The differences being we don't have as much dead weight for him to replaced, and teemu probably won't be anywhere near as productive as tats was.

#2598429 Zach Hyman Won't Be Signing With Florida

Thanks for the list man ... Didn't think guys from Grand Rapids like Miele and porter would count ... I see quite a few guys leaving and making place for other guys for us to sign anyways

As for hyman he doesn't cost us anything so if he can be had for free then just sign him and whatever happens happens

Gotta think porter Miele Aubry McCollum cole cleary etc... Will most likely not return thus giving us space to sign him and mcnulty/wheaton and a free agent or 2

If he doesn't pan out I can't see a team not taking a chance on a 23 yr old kid with potential

I have a feeling well keep miele. Career top six ahlers arent a bad thing to have around, especially when you have so many skilled guys coming through.

But I don't know the rules on two way contracts/contract limits and whether or not miele has given up on being an nhler, or if the wings ever have plans to bring him up.

So if we're under the contract limit, signing him couldn't hurt.

#2595141 Franzen on IR

Posted by kliq on 16 April 2015 - 11:09 PM

The guy needs to retire. Not because it helps us with the cap, not because he isnt the same player, not because he floats around. He needs to retire because enjoying the next 60 years of his life is more important then a game.


I wish him the best, nobody deserves this. Just sucks.

#2593767 S'matter Yzerman, afraid of the jersey you wore for so long?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 16 April 2015 - 09:58 AM

I hope to god this has nothing to do with stevie. This is the first time I have ever thought about Stevie Y in a negative way and it leaves a terrible taste in my mouth. The guy bled Red and White for 22 years so I hope he doesn't have his hand in this.


Yzerman could pull the 2nd greatest heel turn in history.

Posted by kipwinger on 15 April 2015 - 10:39 AM

Honestly, why do you guys/gals even care? Were/are you planning on going to Tampa Bay for game 1? I really don't see the issue with this - it's home ice. If a team wants to fill a building with their fans, that's their prerogative. Unless you live in Tampa and/or planned on making the trek down there, why do you even care at all? Seems like something to complain about.


Because the Tampa Bay lightening and their turd fans are now the opposition.  And every thing they do is therefore stupid, sucky, and asinine.  Whereas everything we do is absolutely right on a cosmic (almost divine) level.  Because it's the playoffs...and they're stupid, and we rule. 

#2593039 Brendan Smith

Posted by kickazz on 13 April 2015 - 07:40 PM

Give the kid a break. Obviously he's not an idiot. Put up huge numbers in college and in AHL. Seems to play best when he plays a ton of minutes.

He's 26. Will be 27 next season. How much longer till he's no longer a kid? Zetterberg was 27 when he won his Stanley cup and nobody referred to him as a "kid". That's the reason people are unhappy with Smith.. How much longer can we make excuses for him? Besides, his college and AHL stats are meaningless if he can't work the NHL system. And that includes basic/smart decision while sitting on your bench. -___- 

#2592880 Red Wings' playoff lines and priorities

Posted by joesuffP on 13 April 2015 - 12:08 PM

I like splitting up Dats and Z. Yeah they've acored but they're not playing unbelievable or anything. Our center depth is one of the advantages we have over Tampa

#2592194 Team next season?

Posted by DickieDunn on 11 April 2015 - 11:05 AM

Weiss's value in Detroit is going to be heavily dependent on what Babcock does.  If there's a new coach who will play him at center with some skilled players instead off where ever there's a guy out of the lineup, Weiss is going to provide value.  If Babcock is back and he's going to keep using him the way he is now, Weiss has very little value and needs to be moved for whatever they can get.

Isn't Quincy playing injured? I'd imagine it's him.
