#2536145 Who should get cut/traded by game 1 of the season?

Posted by dirtydangles on 13 September 2014 - 01:02 PM

Glendening is very useful. He can be a 4th line RW  - Abby - Helm - Glendening ORRRRRRR he can play C and shut down Crosby like he did last year. We should hang onto him.

Love to see Kindl/Lashoff and Cleary gone by game 1. I'd jump for joy. Quincey too but that ain't happening.

#2534247 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by dirtydangles on 14 August 2014 - 12:19 PM

4 years!? Wow. May need to hibernate in the meantime - its getting pretty lame hearing Holland's excuses every offseason. 

#2532623 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

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

Posted by dirtydangles on 09 July 2014 - 08:54 PM

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

#2530531 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

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


Kronwall - Smith

Dekeyser - Ericsson

Del Zotto - Marchenko



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.

Marchenko with one leg > Quincey  :tounge:

#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:







Jurco = Nyquist




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.
