#2367846 2013/2014 lineup, Amnesty, Cap

Posted by dirtydangles on 11 March 2013 - 07:39 PM

Sign and trade for Corey Perry (no longer in Western Conf. or a rival to ANA) for Filpulla, Miller, Nyquist and a 1st



thats hilarious man , miller and filppula are both ufa's


and corey perry will want 8.25 per season at least .... f*ck that

It might not be the best idea of a fair trade but your name kinda gives away your attitude about losing nyquist. I think there is something there around fil and perry with us adding a first rounder and decent prospect. Perry is the kind of player we NEED. Hard nosed and scores a butload. I'd be willing to overpay in that case. Not 8.25mill but in the ballpark of 7.5millper over a long term deal.

Don't forget that Backman has been very strong in the SEL and could find his way to detroit sooner than later. We could end up with an embarrassment of riches on D soon enough. 

#2365785 Holland says those dreaded words, "Our Deadline Addition"

Posted by dirtydangles on 06 March 2013 - 04:20 PM

Meh, holland should just hold onto his 1st rounder rather than trade it for a s***ty player. I'll take some injured players back and our 1st over a 4-6 dman and no first rounder in a deep draft.

#2360918 2/24 GDT : Canucks 3 at Red Wings 8

WATCH THE CANUCKS FIRST AND THIRD GOALS. Burrows subtly picks defenders both times and its borderline interference....

#2357808 2/19 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Predators 4 (OT)

Posted by dirtydangles on 19 February 2013 - 08:41 PM

The refs are trying to make up their gongshow call against the Preds the other night. So they're just going to keep calling everything, granting them numerous powerplays. I can see it now.

this is what i see. kindl did pretty much nothing there. they missed a clear trip earlier on white entering the zone.

#2354504 Biggest mistake Red Wings have done

losing hossa for franzen

trading for quincey

re-signing sammy

holding onto vets too long

#2352119 Tomas Tatar Is Jiri Hudler 2.0

Posted by dirtydangles on 06 February 2013 - 07:06 PM

Tatar worked hard out there, drew a penalty, cycled decently. IMO he is a huge upgrade on Hudler because he has puck winning skills rather than needing more hard working players to give him the puck. Kid needs more than 1 game to show he is more than huds.

#2351856 2/5 GDT : Flames 4 at Red Wings 1

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 February 2013 - 10:46 PM

I think we need to re-assess when helm, smith get back. I want a trade if it makes sense, but I wouldn't overpay until we see these guys in action in a healthy lineup. 

#2350874 Calle Jarnkrok - Does he have a chance to make next season's team?

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 February 2013 - 04:53 PM

Don't argue with me. Argue with the Redwing philosophy for the last gazillion years.


My point was: I hope he is that good. I want to win, and I want the best players to play. Not the ones Kenny feels loyal to. (although I do admit that Ken Hollands approach has worked for a number of years)

It was okay to be sentimental when you had the future of the team cemented in Z, Dats, Lids, but now we can't afford to let our young talent waste away to allow aging vets to retire in peace in the Red Wings country club locker room. holland needs to start seeing this. 

#2350862 Bottom Six

Posted by dirtydangles on 03 February 2013 - 04:10 PM

I never thought I would say this but I miss Sammy. I have never been a huge Samuelsson fan but he can provide secondary scoring. If I am Babs, I would sit Cleary....sorry to all the fans of 11,but he has been terrible. He turns the puck over constantly. He makes misguided decisions with the puck....and he has lost a step. He and Miller have been the biggest disappointments so far.
When Helm is back wit h Samuelsson, bring up Nyqvist and sit Cleary. To me he is the obvious choice although I know he is fan fav and he is trying but at this point, he is a liability even in his own end where he was an asset.

I think everyone is with you on this one. Looking back at every GDT you see Cleary getting trashed because he just can't cut it anymore physically and he doesn't have the size to go on like Bert. He needs to go now, we can't afford to be sentimental on this one. 

#2350857 Bottom Six

With helm back we get some more depth, but I still would rather have him in the future as a supercenter on the forth line with Abby - Helm - Eaves/Tootoo and then bring up Sheahan or Jarnkrok to center the third line and get some production out of our third line next year with an injection of youth.


Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Brunner

Nyquist - Filppula - Franzen

Tatar - Jarnkrok - Bert

Abby - Helm - Eaves/Tootoo


Buyout Sammy let Cleary go (he's done).


Not many teams could match that forward depth with Having Emmerton/Andersson and Tootoo as 13/14 guys. 


Its also a cost effective lineup. Can spend money on the back end.
