#2679475 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

Posted by joesuffP on 25 June 2016 - 02:06 PM

 
I'd happily miss out on Stamkos if we sign Boedker, Radulov and Okposo. Then all we need is to trade for a Centerman for line 1 or 2 and we're contenders.


Sign three guys and pay them more than what Stamkos could score on his own. I seriously don't understand not wanting a bonafide superstar on this team
Imagine thinking having Okoposo as the centerpiece to your offense will take you anywhere in the playoffs. Great complimentary scorer but the wings are trying to build a new core
Having a team full of 15-20 goal scorers is how you never score in the playoffs

Betuzzi is the new AHL playoff machine from what I hear ;)

Not sure about the draft this year but I say they same thing every year and I'm usually pleasantly surprised. There is a reason they passed on some of the more obvious picks and went other directions. They know what we are doing. I know people have heard this a million times but the Wings were criticized for taking an unknown small forward out of Russia named Datsyuk over more obvious names left in that round. In Hakan and the rest of the recruiting staff we trust!

Or more recently, people on the board said Bertuzzi was listed much lower than where we picked him at and complained about the choice. He has looked quite good in GR and I don't think many are unhappy that we took him now

Overall a good draft. Lots of D, big gritty winger, obviously getting rid of Pavs contract. Should be an exciting week ahead of us.

Givani Smith certainly would not have been available in the 5th-7th rounds... I really like that pick a lot.

 

I know right.  People around here ***** and moan for YEARS about how we never draft any tough, gritty, abrasive forwards.  So we draft an 18 year old who's 6'2, 200+ lbs., leads his league in penalty minutes, and is big and tough. 

 

What do people do?

 

***** and moan.

Givani Smith was off the board, but the more I read about this kid, the more I like this pick. Big power-forward, molds his game to that of Wayne Simmonds... Could turn out to be a steal.

The only people ripping Holland right now are trolls

 

He got rid of #13's contract

Drafted 2 18 yr old Offensive Defensemen who are getting better & will get stronger

Drafted a Gritty Tyler Bertuzzi type

 

And oh yeah we likely became the favorite for Stamkos

 

What else do you guys want lol

If what Dreger is true it's more like

1. Buffalo willing to go 12 aav
2. Toronto
3. Tampa Bay but the captain needs to up his offer
4. Wings and everyone else who is interested

But hey gotta pass on a much needed gift in order to draft another undersized pick no one ever heard of.

 

Dreger: Red Wings top contender for Stamkos

 

Just Saiyan.

@tkulfan: Holland said he'll focus on replacing Datsyuk in free agency....what does he want to do with this newly created cap space? "Spend it"

We shall see...

@Buccigross:Steve Yzerman basically told @KathrynTappen: "we made our best offer to Stamkos. Take it or leave it."

Does Filppula or Hudler provide something that our younger, cheaper guys already in the system don't?  I'd rather utilize our resources in acquiring something we lack ie a franchise forward, top pairing defensman, established goal scorer etc
