Aaaaaaaand go.

#2681149 Frans Nielson signs 6 year $5.25m AAV contract with Detroit

Hope this won't turn into another Weiss.

#2680647 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Posted by Dabura on 30 June 2016 - 03:18 PM

Nashville wins. Weber's best days are already behind him, more or less. Subban is younger and, frankly, better.


Poile has basically undone the Seth Jones trade -- only, he gets to keep Ryan Johansen.


And that, my friends, is how you GM.

#2680469 Hall for Larsson - Oilers and Devils swap players

Posted by kliq on 30 June 2016 - 12:42 AM

I dont get why you trade a bona fide star, for a guy who COULD be a star. Maybe Edmonton wins long term, but I feel that there are better defenseman out there that you could have gotten if you are going to offer Hall. Bad trade for Edmonton.

#2679667 Drew Miller re-signs... 1 year deal $1.025 million

Posted by Dabura on 27 June 2016 - 01:06 PM

Miller and Glendening are possession black holes. Whatever positives they bring are outweighed by the fact that they spend all of their time at even-strength without the puck (often against top players, because reasons). You don't win with a fourth line that's "gritty and real good defensively." You win with a fourth line that's talented enough to be a third line and can devour other teams' bottom-sixers. Also, this is one less spot for a kid, which is always good to see. (yeah but thoes kidzn arnt real gud defensivly)

#2678673 Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

Posted by kliq on 22 June 2016 - 11:12 PM


Well at least it's more realistic than keep saying, if X and X steps up this team will finish top 3 or anything like that.


Who said anything about them finishing top 3? If you are talking NHL or conference, I dont think anyone has said that. If you are talking top 3 in the division which is what they have finished 2 straight years, that is not by any stretch a ridiculous prediction.


Personally I will reserve any predictions or judgements until after the roster is figured out.

boring offseason 

Most off season excitement is centered around the draft and free agency/the interview period.. The draft and interview period both start this weekend.. This is pretty much the calm before the storm.

#2677144 Biggest need for Red Wings in Off-season Poll

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 June 2016 - 12:52 PM

In the past, this poll would be easy.  Back then, we were good and were missing a piece or two.    


Now we need at least 4 of those categories.  Maybe all 5, but we likely don't need any defensive defensemen (though an upgrade over what we have would be nice).  But all the other categories we badly need to upgrade.  


I didn't vote because I can't decide what the biggest need is.  I'm leaning towards offensive defenseman, because your offense starts from the blue line.   

#2677441 Petition to change Lil Caesars Arena to Gordie Howe Arena

Posted by amato on 11 June 2016 - 09:00 AM

I'd be happy with something like "Gordie Howe Arena at Little Caesars Colosseum." They get their corporate sponsorship, fans get "The Gordie" or "The Howe" to replace "The Joe" instead of just the pizza pizza arena arena. They can even keep the stupid logo on the roof :P

But agreed it's highly unlikely

#2677405 Petition to change Lil Caesars Arena to Gordie Howe Arena

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 10 June 2016 - 06:32 PM

Mods please delete if this isn't allowed but saw an article on Fox Detroit that fans are trying to gain support to change the arena name to Gordie Howe Arena. Here is a link to the petition that was posted at #GordieHoweArena on Twitter. It already has a few thousand signatures and I figure with all the die hard fans on here we could easily double or triple that number.

What's to stop Chris Chelios from being Darren Helm?

#2677266 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by Echolalia on 09 June 2016 - 07:37 PM

So...basically what you're trying to say is that I'm spreading lies? I'm only listing facts, Darren. You didn't score despite playing with Pav almost all season long. Pav's line was as bad as it gets because you were on it. You are one of those turnover machines who forced Pav to chase the puck instead of making plays. 

You got it wrong man, I'm Darren Helm.

#2677245 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by kickazz on 09 June 2016 - 12:59 PM



I can see only two options why you and a good amount of others write posts like this:


1.) Darren Helm has multiple accounts here

2.) Darren Helm pays people to praise him in here.


No serious human being would ever write posts like this without one of those reasons. No, Helm isn't a great 3rd liner and no, he isn't worth 3 millions. Not even close. Also this post is ridiculously wrong. In fact it couldn't be more wrong. Helm and co f***ed it up. This game for example:




1st Tampa goal is typical for Helm. He turns the puck over but he doesn't do anything to get the puck back. That's what happens all the time. Almost every freaking Helm shift is like that. I don't wanna see this anymore and it's completely impossible not to see it. Still you guys keep telling us here how good Helm is. Maddening...

Denial is the first stage mate. There are no conspiracy theories. None of us are hired by Helm and Helm has better things to do than make an account on some forum. He's a millionaire and could careless who thinks what. We're all just fans speaking fairly. Helm > Miller. If you really want to see what the entire forums think, you could start a thread and put up a poll and see for yourself. 

#2676752 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by puckbags on 29 May 2016 - 10:47 AM

Getting radulov would be huge!! Throw in a Loui erikson/okposo/brouwer and Matt Martin that would be great!!!

Then flip Tatar + for vatanen
Move datsyuk to Arizona
Move Howard to the canes/islanders
Move E to anyone, if not bury him
Sign Montoya

Abdelkader- Larkin-erikson/okposo/Brouwer
Radulov- AA- Nyquist
Zetterberg- sheahan- mantha
Martin- glendening- jurco

Kronwall- green
Dekeyser- vatanen
Smith- marchenko
XO- Sproul


I like that roster a lot and think it could compete and be better built for playoff hockey. If Larkin, mantha, and AA all take good steps forward it could be very good.


Unplug the PS4/Xbox, put down the controller and walk away slowly.
