#2577538 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 02 March 2015 - 01:16 PM

Kenny's done a good job here. All in we've not given any real assets today and brought in some solid pieces to strengthen our team.

#2574832 Janmark-Nylen

Watched him on play on TV last night, his team won 4-3 on penalty shots. He had three primary assists. Looked really good. Looking forward to seeing him in GR.

#2569593 Nabokov traded back to San Jose

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 10 February 2015 - 10:14 AM

Heard about this last night.  Can someone please help me understand something; when it's stated that a player was acquired for "future considerations" as part of the acquisition, what does future considerations actually mean?  Is this just a nice way of getting rid of a player and pretending that the trading team got something in return?  Is there an official process or piece put in place, so down the road that team has to officially consider a trade offer?  I am unclear to what this actually means?? Thanks in advance for any insight.

Future considerations is usually dependent on something happening beyond the deal. A player can't be given up for nothing so I would imagine the deal is something like if Nabakov signs a new deal then San Jose would need to give something. He's retiring so I would imagine there's nothing going to be exchanged. An example of this would be when we got Draper for $1

#2560103 Winter Classic 2014 - Where are they now?

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 01 January 2015 - 09:07 AM

HI guys, don't very often start a new topic but been having a bit of fun watching the "Road to the Winter Classic 2014" this morning and put together this article on where the stars of the show are now.


All for a bit of fun, a lot of you are much better at photoshop etc than me (I used MS paint) though we could all come up with some more of these type of screenshots.

#2532443 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 18 July 2014 - 05:15 AM

I'd be very surprised if we sign either of these guys for more than $2M per year, look at Smith and Nyquists' contracts over the last two years as a guide.

#2521563 Emmerton-ov: Cory heading to KHL

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 23 May 2014 - 07:50 PM

Any chance Emmerton can take Joakim Andersson along with him?

Why would they need two first line centres?

#2491570 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 06 March 2014 - 04:49 AM

I like this trade. Jarnkrok may develop in to a great player, but before the deadline I wanted make sure that come March 6th we still had Tatar, Nyquist, Jurco, Sproul, Oullet, Mrazek, Mantha, Pullkinnen... I prefer these guys so it's not like we sold the family china. Eaves wasn't back in the summer, so effectively a pick and a prospect for a proven centre isn't a high price.

#2483979 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 15 February 2014 - 04:15 AM

The way things are going for us, after the Olympic break 'the first line'?

#2477056 Sammy Waived

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 25 January 2014 - 02:41 PM

@Bill_Roose: The #RedWings have placed veteran forward Mikael Samuelsson on waivers today.

Right decision I think

#2471999 Look who's top in GR scoring

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 11 January 2014 - 07:30 AM

No love for Teemu Pulkkinen? He's doing great his first season in NA.

I've been high on this guy since the draft, hope he can continue at the rate he could be a future star. I've always though that he would either eventually play in the wings top 6 or completely disappear.

#2451317 Tootoo Waived

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 06 November 2013 - 12:12 PM

Interesting that he was the first to go, obviously no takers in trade.

#2430180 Brendan Smith signs 2-year, $2.525m contract with Red Wings

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 15 July 2013 - 03:17 PM

Great cap hit for a player that is only going to get better.

#2421312 Dreger: Filppula looking for $5.5m/season over at least 7 years

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 22 June 2013 - 02:27 AM

I'm of the opinion that if we want to improve and have a legit chance at the cup we need to change the roster. Does that mean Flip is the odd one out? Well the fact he asked 5+ million over 7/8 years it certainly makes it easy for the Redwings brass to cut him loose. He simply isn't worth that, but even if he asked for 3.5/4 million for 3 years would our team progress if we signed him back? I don't think so, I think we'd be back where we started.

#2338238 Tomas Holmstrom Retires

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 07 January 2013 - 02:34 PM

To honour him could we have 96 painted in the crease? Just to remind any visiting goalies that are getting cocky because he's not there any more.

#2331104 Drew Miller

Posted by FifeHockeyNut on 09 October 2012 - 02:48 PM

isn't that even a bit of a stretch? i was thinking that my local CHL team brought in someone from the EIHL and they had dominated there and was just a 2nd/3rd liner in the central hockey league.

The British players are considerably below the ECHL level but certainly all the players I can think of from NA are all ECHL standard with some having decent AHL experience. Drew should tear it up.
