#2526912 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by DickieDunn on 29 June 2014 - 12:43 PM

We need to replace Tootoo's shop wrecking abilities

 

Only if they can find a player who has a brain and doesn't constantly run out of position to make a hit.

NSH trying to deal Michael Del Zotto before 4 ET. If no deal, do they qualify at $2.9M or let him go UFA. Suspect it's latter but not firm.

#2517396 A plea to Holland.

I think we all got carried away with the youth movement. It failed miserably when it mattered. I'd rather keep the kids that are up, surround them with capable vets and return to a one or two rookies a year tradition. We've got so many kids coming up we will have to trade some anyway.

Young teams need to learn how to win.  This year's active playoff roster only had 5 guys who played in the '08 Cup finals--Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Franzen, Helm, and Kronwall.  The young players have gained invaluable experience over the past season or two, they'll continue to grow and improve, and I think we're looking at a very, very strong Red Wings team in 2 years if they continue to mix in the youth and stop bringing back veterans who have nothing left in the tank.  Adding a good veteran on D would help also.

The young guys haven't "failed miserably".  This team wasn't all that good, wasn't supposed to beat the #1 team in the NHL, and barely made the playoffs, aided by the epic collapse of 2 other teams.  The playoffs are a different animal, it takes time for them to be able to figure it out.  Look at Datsyuk... 3 goals in his first 42 playoff games!  He had 3 this series alone.  At least now, they've gone through that experience in 2014 rather than 2015 or 2016, as the organization had originally planned.

This is the new course.  The future has already begun.

So I need to watch the Pens game to get Ken Daniels calling a game on Gamecenter :lol:

 

You know Sindy and the boys > original 6 matchup at least in the eyes of the stupid NBC higher ups

 

Nice one Jenner

Gonna be fun watching Jarnkrok tear up the league next year all for a rental for the 4th line.

His stupidity helped cost us this game.  

 

That would be Franzen actually...

The one positive is we had to face the best team in the league in the first round with a hobbled Z and a half-interested Datsyuk and no Ericsson and lots of Quincey and lots of Kindl-Lashoff and Howard having the worst season of his NHL career and a bunch of kids. But, even with those things going against us, we'd probably beat the Penguins, who are the second best team in the East.
 
Trim the fat this summer, make good decisions, wrap the players in bubble wrap, and we'll be ok.


Half-interested Datsyuk?

Please.

The guy is playing through an injury and still has 3 goals in 5 games.

If Franzen would actually skate he wouldnt have to grab someones shoulder. Grabbing a players shoulder like that in plain view is a penalty 100% of the time regardless of if there was a dive.

 

He shouldn't even be flirting with it. Just keep your hands to yourself, ride the momentum we've built up for ourselves.

 

But no. The one time we need him to "just be," he decides to go and do something.

 

F*** him.

Anybody can blame Franzen can also blame the refs for not calling the dive... Again!
