I'd like to see Detroit try to move up in the draft to get a top 5 pick since we are in the first half of the draft and not at the end. Edmonton is looking for defensemen and maybe we could put a package together involving Kindl or Smith.
We need a top line scorer, a top power forward, a shut down D man, a puck moving D man, a new starting goalie, multiple gritty bottom 6 forwards, a new coach, and a new GM.
If we do that will everyone be happy?
Well, thanks for setting me straight, although I don't remember being crooked. And while there might be an odd comment on LGW, I think most of the fans that come here aren't stupid enough to think that you can get a star for free.
Not sure what you're trying to say, but their situations were 100% different. DeKeyser, an undrafted free agent, left WMU and signed with the Red Wings after Western's season ended. Mantha, who was drafted and is already signed with Detroit, is still playing with his junior team, and under the agreement between the NHL and CHL, the Wings can't call him up to the AHL until his junior season is over.
the discussion was about after Mantha's season was over
