#2673552 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by Echolalia on 25 April 2016 - 02:43 PM

Not worth it, especially considering the amount of impressionable youth the Wings are bringing in now.  I would hate to have a guy like Radulov be Larkin and Matha's role model.

If Zetterberg is our top line center next season, we're in trouble.  He has no room to talk or be angry.  His body can't do what it once did.  Nothing can change that.  


As for Holland, he'll never be fired.  The Ilitch family has given him immunity long ago.

"A #13 Red Wings jersey was signed by the entire team in dressing room on Monday - The handwriting is on more than just the wall"...

I still want to be hopeful, but this doesn't sound good...

You can't give it to a 19 year old.  

Chicago gave the C to a 19 year old. That turned out pretty well.

They should give it to Larkin.


Larkin is a difference maker and already a role model in every aspect of the game (except physicality)

Larkin. He will be the next captain, may as well start to groom him now.

#2673152 Potentially new GMs

Posted by Dominator2005 on 23 April 2016 - 08:42 AM

Stevie Yzerman GM
Dave Tippet Coach

After Scotty we had Lewis... then we got Babs and now we have Blash...

Next coach should be good one

I just have a gut feeling that it'll be yzerman.. Seems like a very red wings move. Also his contract and Hollands are both up the same year; after the 2017-18 season I believe.

Either way, I think holland manages out the rest of his contract then either retires/steps back into a different "higher" front office role or signs a new contract with the wings..

Yzerman? Admittedly, I don't know enough about potential GMs to make an informed decision. I just know that Yzerman is a demi-god and has that certain, as the French say, I don't know what.

I swear this is ground hog day every year....

Except this year no one here will be complaining about Franzen's contract or us bringing back Cleary.


(I'm going to pre-empt someone's joke of "don't speak too soon.")

Svechnikov is not close to being NHL ready in my opinion. He's at least one full season away, possibly two... Jumping from junior (especially the Q) to the NHL is not easy to do, even for the most elite of players. I wouldn't even be surprised to see him struggle adapting to the AHL at the start of next season, let alone the NHL...

Posted by Echolalia on 21 April 2016 - 10:17 PM

Gotta admit I wasn't a fan of his work this season. Just about every player on the team performed worse compared to last year's individual stats. Mrazek played on his head for half the season and Larkin played on his head for half the season, and I think those two factors are what got the Wings to the playoffs. I haven't seen anything particularly impressive from coaching all season long. I guess he has a long summer to do some homework on how to be an effective NHL coach and Holland to maybe grab some fresh blood, but I'm not particularly excited with the state of this team right now.

Hate ? Cmon man, are you like 12? The guy is a hockey coach.  He got out coached big time and has a lot to learn at this level but at the end of the day he's just a dude and dudes make mistakes.

His voice sounds like Babcock's.
