#2532623 Dekeyser/Tatar status update

Posted by dirtydangles on 20 July 2014 - 11:20 AM

Kindl's gonna go on waivers cause they can't trade him and Smith will get 2nd PP time.

Then Kindl goes to a couple teams in the west and improves greatly - then Holland desperately trades a 1st round pick at the trade deadline for him and then Kindl stinks up the joint here again and gets re-signed for 4.25mill.

Actually pretty good. Loved the Oberyn Martell reference for the Sharks being up 3-0 on the Kings. 




#2531077 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Are youf****** serious? Dan Cleary? 1 year deal? This has got to be the apocalypse...




#2530928 Kane & Toews Sign Identical 8-year, $10.5M AAV Extensions

I think they should have been around 9.5 each. When you look at Getzlaf you have to think about 1mill more.

Posted by dirtydangles on 07 July 2014 - 11:20 PM

If I were GM I would have tried to construct a D like this:

 

Kronwall - Smith

Dekeyser - Ericsson

Del Zotto - Marchenko

Lashoff

 

Never would have signed Quincey. Would have traded or bought out Kindl (we have the cap space for the next few years). I would have tried to get Del Zotto on a 2 year deal and tried to turn his value around. After this year I would be looking to trade E/Smith/DZ (depending on their value at the end of the year) in a package for a RH Dman and clear up one more roster space for Sproul. 

 

Signing Del Zotto would have been high reward low risk considering we have insurance in GR. If Del Zotto found his game again he could be traded or make Smith/E more expendable for trading purposes. Nobody wants Quincey because he has already reached his potential and it isn't worth his contract. 

 

EDIT: I also always thought "Del Zotto" would look sick on the back of a Wings jersey.




#2530498 Marchenko

Posted by dirtydangles on 07 July 2014 - 08:49 PM

I'm hoping this positive experience with Marchenko will warm the Wings to taking more Russian born players. I think we have passed on some real talent in the past due to the russian factor.




#2530322 Hockey News: Red Wings D hunting

Posted by dirtydangles on 07 July 2014 - 12:10 AM

I'd trade Tatar + Kindl (roster spot) + 1st 2015 for Myers but that is about it. Jurco is too valuable with his size and skill blend and Nyquist is just too good already to move. Obviously I'd rather give up Pulkkinen before Tatar but Pulkkinen wouldn't be enough to get it done as a main piece. I'd be most willing to give up the our prospects in this order:

 

Pulkkinen

Tatar

Backman

Marchenko

Ouellet

Jurco = Nyquist

Sproul

Mantha

 

I just think Tatar is most easiest replaced due to his size and Pulkkinen could step into his shoes.

I don't know much about Petry. Is he worth a trade?

I'd only be moving Kindl+ or Quincey+ the other way. No way I move Smith or DD just to get a RHD.




#2529304 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by dirtydangles on 02 July 2014 - 06:55 AM

Holland said he is not disappointed, however.

"Not in the least," Holland said. "You're talking about 4-5 players and there's 30 teams. It's free agency; it's wide open. Other teams are after these players, too. Last year we got the guys wanted (forwards Stephen Weiss and Daniel Alfredsson) this year we didn't."
Holland dismissed speculation that Detroit isn't the free-agent destination it once was or that the franchise has lost its luster in the eyes of players hitting the open market.

"Thirty teams are a destination," Holland said. "The game has changed. Players can go wherever they want. We all have the same money (because of the cap). We made some pitches. Those players chose to go elsewhere."

Holland doesn't accept the notion that free agents don't want to play for coach Mike Babcock because of his demanding ways.

"I think we got a fabulous coach," Holland said. (Team Canada executive director) Steve Yzerman has picked him for two Olympic teams and the results speak for themselves (gold medals in 2010 and 2014)."

Holland said he will continue exploring trade possibilities for a right-handed shooting defenseman and look for free-agent bargains this summer.

"Still lots of players out there that could be good one-year bargains," Holland said. "I was hoping to get a right-shot defenseman or two. They signed elsewhere, that's their prerogative. That's going to happen more and more with the cap ceiling and floor going up."

This guy is delusional. He's putting pretty much the same team on the ice. Somebody get Kenny his meds. I love at the end how he stated how there's bargains out there still. Cleary and Alfie came to mind.

Holland basically saying what he always says: "Its not my fault - it was out of my hands." Mhmmm and that terribad Quincey signing was too? GTFO. Mark my words - we won't hoist another cup with Holland as GM. 




#2529021 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by dirtydangles on 01 July 2014 - 07:18 PM

Somebody wake me up from this nightmare. I dont know how anyone can defend holland anymore. Its time to take him out behind the shed and end this. He is a record stuck on repeat. Ownership is loyal to a fault - this s*** shouldnt fly.

Nill just owns Holland at this point. Whatever Holland is saying to these UFAs and GMs is clearly not working anymore. Can he not sell players on Detroit? If UFAs are willing to sign in FLA you would think the Wings would be a potential landing spot for a few others. We have a great young pool of prospects to go along with a pretty talented roster.

 

At this point I would say its time to break in the kids. There is no point in overpaying for a Myers (who has his own issues). Just start trying some of the kids on for size and who knows - maybe a few step up and become young coveted players like other teams always seem to have.

Nill acquires 2 number 1 Cs in two years. We are still spinning our wheels.

Barbashev, Kempe still available... but wait! we don't have a 2nd!

Too bad Ehlers couldn't slip. Never was gonna happen but the guy can flat out score goals.

Fabbri is a C with 45 goals. Hoping he slides.

Posted by dirtydangles on 23 June 2014 - 05:46 PM

As a good as Nyquist was last season let's put things into perspective here, O'Reilly is the more proven better player. Are people honestly expecting Goose to keep up that unreal stamkoslike PPG pace? I hope not, if so some of you will be disappointed.

 

If Goose adds 20 more pounds and still produces at such a great pace, then we can revisit this debate but so far ROR is the better player. Guy also plays an almost perfect clean game 2 penalty minutes in a whole season? _Wow

This. I would trade Nyquist for O'Reilly every day of the week. 

 

O'Reilly is taller and heavier than Nyquist

O'Reilly is a C and Nyquist plays wing

We desperately need top 6 young C's and have surplus of young (and old) wingers

O'Reilly (91) is 2 years younger than Nyquist (89)

They both put up similar goal totals

 

I love Nyquist a lot - but if it took Nyquist + 1st to get O'Reilly I'd do it all day.
