In Topic: NHL Chooses Las Vegas for 17-18 Expansion

16 June 2016 - 07:05 PM

I actually think it will do pretty well in Vegas. When compared to most of the other tickets in town, an NHL game will be a cheaper option to kill a night. Especially if they end up having a decent team. It's definitely an economic hub, unlike Phoenix, Arizona. 


My only true concern is the West having an odd number of teams. That's why I'm hoping there's still a chance for expansion in either Seattle, or Quebec, or another deserving market. I won't be truly pleased till both conferences have an equal number of teams.

Avery was drafted and not brought in. He wasn't drafted for his goal scoring potential/skills.
Too too was signed for his physicality and not his goal scoring skills either.
Bert is another story, was one of the best Power Forward in NHL but after Moore incident he wasn't himself. He was acquired for his size and physical play.

That's exactly my point. We were willing to bring guys in with character issues to help fill our needs as a team. Our biggest need right now by far is more goal scoring. So it should be a no brainer to give a player who consistently produces a chance to see if he can help the team. Especially when we've given "questionable character" players a chance in the past.

Lol Avery was not drafted. We straight up signed him as a free agent. And since your biggest issue is that Radulov will be a locker room cancer, I find it amusing that for some reason you're making excuses for Avery who might be the worst locker room cancer of the past decade from the beginning to the very end of his career, but for some reason you're talking about Radulov having off ice issues in Quebec when he was what? 18 years old? 


And why does it matter what they were brought in for? Isn't your whole issue about him being an problem in the locker room for Dylan Larkin. 

Forgot to correct him on that. We absolutely brought him in as a FA. lol

Skilled winger in KHL!!! He didn't proved anything in NHL yet!!! Then KH should go after Linus et Lepisto too I guess.

"But the Red Wings have concerns about whether Radulov would have a negative influence in the dressing room, especially with younger players."


As a Predator (who last I checked is a team in the NHL) he scored 18 goals in only 62 games. Then the very next season scored 26 in 81 games. The guy can score in the NHL.

What's the point of signing him at all. :/

Cause he can put the puck in the net, unlike many of our current Red Wings. We were one of the lowest scoring teams in the entire league. We desperately need goal scoring.

We've brought in Sean Avery, Todd Bertuzzi, Jordin Tootoo for pete's sake! 


My thoughts exactly. And none of those guys score goals as often as Radulov (aside from Bertuzzi back in his Canuck days).

The Avs are for sure the front runners to land Radulov


Not according to Elliot Freeman. Back when Radulov first expressed interest in returning to the NHL, there was speculation that the Avs were the front runners. But as the weeks have passed, the Wings are the current favorites to land him. But as of now, nothing is 100% set in stone.


Really hope we do get him though. As long as we don't drastically overpay for him.

SBNation says he's likely going to the Avs.

Apparently, he's not too interested in playing in the NHL playoffs...
