#2536671 Barry Trotz Wants Ovechkin to be more like Yzerman

Posted by dirtydangles on 20 September 2014 - 05:19 PM

I want almost every forward on our team to be "more like Yzerman." I just don't think asking Ovi to change is going to make it happen.

This isn't that surprising though considering when Mule pushes himself he is an absolute beast and can dominate any game. It just doesn't happen night in and night out.

#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

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

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

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



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.

#2530440 Marchenko

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.
