#2678845 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Still wouldn't give up Nyquist. He's got much more value than cap space deal. I'd rather do 2nd round + Jurco/Pulk 




#2678601 Official Offseason Thread

It was discussed here and I believe someone provided a link around the time it became apparent that Datsyuk was a goner. In order for us to not be on the hook we must trade the contract and have it be terminated before July 1st.


Really? Now I'm curious. It doesn't sound right, but what do I know? From my knowledge, once a team acquires a contract, they're responsible for it.

Plus, taking a quick look at the history of mutually terminated contracts in the NHL, they occur throughout the entire year: https://en.wikipedia...ct_terminations

The only way Miller helps this team is if he gets hurt and one of the younger players gets a shot.

I don't want either of them back to be honest, but some of the things being said about Miller... lol. The guy is a plug, plain and simple. Average PKer, boat anchor at 5on5, not a speedy player to begin with coming off a major knee injury, and a non-physical 4th liner.

 

I blame Kenny for this, only he would have fans arguing over plugs coming back over and over :lol:

As far as the Helm vs. Miller discussion goes I say let them both walk. Use the cap you save on a player that actually helps the team and fill their roles with the younger guys trying to make the team.


#2677154 Biggest need for Red Wings in Off-season Poll

Posted by amato on 08 June 2016 - 02:31 PM

Agree with a top pairing two way D man.. But I think a pure goal scoring forward is a very close second.


#2677144 Biggest need for Red Wings in Off-season Poll

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 June 2016 - 12:52 PM

In the past, this poll would be easy.  Back then, we were good and were missing a piece or two.    

 

Now we need at least 4 of those categories.  Maybe all 5, but we likely don't need any defensive defensemen (though an upgrade over what we have would be nice).  But all the other categories we badly need to upgrade.  

 

I didn't vote because I can't decide what the biggest need is.  I'm leaning towards offensive defenseman, because your offense starts from the blue line.   




#2676589 Wings acquire SJ prospect Dylan Sadowy

Posted by sputman on 26 May 2016 - 04:09 PM

I get the feeling he was somebody the brass had their eyes on to draft in the 4th round but San Jose beat them to it.

 

 

 

Scores? Hits? Plays aggressively instead of getting swatted off the puck? 

 

I like it!


This quote below that video is great:

 

 

 

My buddy(a Sharks fan) just told me about this and added: "Anytime you make a trade with the Wings for a prospect, you know you lost that trade." Im still laughing.

#2675124 They're BAAAAAAACK

Posted by The Secret on 04 May 2016 - 07:28 PM

Drew and Mike are back.... You heard me right DREW AND MIKE ARE BACK!!!!!! :yahoo:

 

Drew and Mike have started their own podcast and the first episode is out. Spread the word... Let's welcome them back after being away for way to long

http://drewandmikepodcast.com/

 

Let's not forget the fella's at The Detroitcast. They are putting out a near Drew and Mike quality show for the last few years. Lead by Mike Wolters the former producer of the famous WRIF Drew and Mike show

http://detroitcast.com/

 

Mornings with the Drew and Mike show were worth waking up for... then the dreaded END came. Suddenly, suddenly and all of a sudden mornings were sad (screw dave and chuck). With the birth of The Detroit Cast the clouds started to thin and eventually the sun once again began to shine. Mornings were good again. But now... The Actual Drew and Mike are back together again PLUS The DetroitCast is better then ever... Donald Trump could quite possibly be President  :bad: , Steve Yzerman could quite possibly be coming home to GM us back to the Glory Days... what else could happen???

 

 

Seriously Drew and Mike.. Check them out! TDC, check them out!!!

 

Peace




#2675723 Mantha

Posted by Richdg on 11 May 2016 - 08:47 AM

Mantha is currently 3rd in scoring for the AHL playoffs. 8 points in 7 games. 4 goals and 4 assists. This also makes 27 goals in 77 games at all levels.

People mention Larkin and he hit the wall in the second half of the season

Fact is it will take time for Mantha and Larkin to learn the highest level and pace themselves


#2675651 Doug Houda hired as an assistant coach

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 10 May 2016 - 06:11 PM

 

He played for some of those fun Wings teams in the late 80's.  

 

I met him and Stevie Y. at a Little Caesars opening near my home in '89 (?). I said "Hello, Mr. Yzerman. Hi, Doug."

While not very proficient - Houda was always game for a scrap...Maybe his passion will rub off on the club.
