#2628279 Roster Moves by the Wings

Posted by Zetts on 04 October 2015 - 05:44 PM

I can already anticipate the meltdown if Cleary stays and Larkin goes down. 


Just to prepare people, if that happens, it is NOT because Cleary "took" Larkin's roster spot.  It's because they didn't think Larkin was ready for a top 3 line role and didn't want him playing 10 minutes on the fourth line and/or being the 13/14 forward.  Cleary, on the other hand, is perfectly-suited to that role.  The two of them are not in competition for the same roster spot.

Wait until the kid actually gets strong. He's really good now, and he's noticeably smaller than everyone else on the ice. A years worth of pro training and he will be even better.

I definitely think some are likely. If we're being specific to next season, I see Richards, Quincey, Miller and Andersson moving on. I'm not totally sold on Datsyuk retiring a year early; Franzen's more likely. I also think one of Smith/Kindl gets moved this year (or in the offseason), and one gets to finish his contract. I'd prefer to see Ouellet, Marchenko AND Jensen up next season, but I think it'll be two of the three. Sproul's on the outside looking in right now, IMO.

I can see a battle between some of the skilled players, but I think Nyquist is safe. I wouldn't be surprised to see Jurco and Pulkkinen pitted against each other, though. Different style of player, but they're going to feel a push from Mantha and Bertuzzi.

I'm torn on the Helm thing, but I'm definitely hoping for it. It just doesn't make sense to keep him with Larkin and Athanasiou on their way up soon.


I wasn't implying Datsyuk would leave a year early.  Sorry if it came across that way.  I think he'll leave at the end of his contract.

I think that Kindl will have a nice season (and I don't like him). Quincey could finished as 7th def.

Won't be Datsyuk due to time missed, but he will be the leader in PPG.

Assists = Zetterberg

Goals = Tatar

Points = Zetterberg

I tried this and it wasn't syncing up properly for me. Probably my internet.

I'm glad I found video feed, but I feel like I'm in one of those anechoic rooms.


No mine did the same thing. Just pause the Ken Kal audio stream for 15-20 seconds and it will be in sync.

Eh? Why would both get waived?

Detroit only needs to waive one of them, unless you think Cleary or Callahan will be the 14th forward? Unless you're thinking they'll run 13 forwards to get under the cap once Pavel returns?


Oh jeezus.  Math.  14+7+2 = 23.  Lol.   

I'm a maroon!


EDIT:  Although I guess getting under the cap is going to be a concern, huh?  According to General Fanager with 15 forwards we're over the cap:

+1,314,543 - 950,000 (Cleary) = +364,543


There's a 215K difference between Andersson and Ferraro. Still putting us at just under 150k over carrying Ferraro instead of Andy. 

There's gotta be a trade and I see it on the defensive side.  There's huge difference in our salary cap situation between carrying our current 7 d-men (Green, Kronner, Quincey, Ericsson, Smith, Kindl, Deke) and six of those guys plus ANY of our d-prospects sitting in Grand Rapids.

I think Hank looked alright.  Seemed to be moving well.  And Abby played a good game.  But Nyquist was still on summer vacation so that line was nonexistent.  Zetterberg will be fine.

I mean, Kindl obviously isn't mike Green. But he hasn't been scored on and moved the puck well on two goals. What more do you want out of a third pair defenseman?

Posted by kipwinger on 23 September 2015 - 01:26 PM

The League has every right to suspend him pending an investigation.  It's in the CBA.  The one that the toothless NHLPA agreed to.  What are they going to do, throw a fit about it and lose to Bettman like they always do?


The NHL isn't a court of law.  They don't have to be objective.  If he's bad for business, they can suspend him whether he's been found guilty or not.

As far as I know, Quincey is playing tonight and Smith is sitting.

We'll have to see, but I'm 95% sure it's Quincey in with Kindl tonight, not Smith...

Posted by krsmith17 on 23 September 2015 - 11:58 AM

Nope, Quincey is in as far as I know. I'm pretty sure Smith was a misprint...

Jensen is everywhere.

#2626031 If Larkin forces his way to the team , what will we look like?

Posted by krsmith17 on 19 September 2015 - 01:03 PM

Even with Datsyuk starting the season on IR, and if Helm isn't ready to go (which I think he will be), or another player gets injured, I still think Larkin starts the season and in all likelihood plays the entire season in Grand Rapids...
