#2675906 Official 2016 Detroit Red Wings Offseason Thread

Posted by marcaractac on 13 May 2016 - 06:17 PM

This is russo's first year in the ahl though, isn't it? It's Mantha and AAs second pro year. So after next year, Russo would still fall under the "2 year" thing.


Oh sorry I misread. I read it as 2 year pros need protection. If they are safe than that is ace.


To the one who said to leave Goose and Tatar unprotected... hell no. This summer Holland needs to decide who he will protect. Whoever falls outside of said protection, he needs to trade em. Get prospects and picks for guys with value who'd likely be drafted. This team won't be a contender next season, so trade the guys we'd likely lose and then make a run for it the season after. It would be dumb have another mediocre season to only lose guys for nothing the following summer.

Sarcasm aside Nyquist has looked really good in the WC so far.

Apparently Kazakhstan is not as good as Tampa Bay.

#2675604 Doug Houda hired as an assistant coach

Posted by puckloo39 on 10 May 2016 - 12:27 PM

God damn Pierre has to be just pissed. Won't know who's who on that bench.


I can't wait.  Apparently, the new rule is an all-bald coaching staff? :lol:

For the other assistant role:



"They are expected to talk to Todd Richards when he returns from the World Championship, where he is the head coach for Team USA."





Semi-hairless.... OK, then

Hopefully Tampa wins.


Then Tampa loses to Dallas (who I hope beats St. Louis).

2 words: Mitch Korn (coached Rinne and Holtby) and I guess that turned out extremely well for both guys.

PP: Adam Oates
PK: Randy Carlyle

"Jeff would like to get a couple of assistants a little heavier on experience," Holland said. "With Tony Granato leaving and all the change in the industry, we decided to consider adding two assistants with more experience. Ideally, it will be an offensive guy and a defensive guy."


Experience is on the way... Good!

Does a few goals in a tournament really say anything about a season long performance in the NHL?

Like I said your getting rid of all our players/prospects and picks and just keeping non important guys putting them in the lineup (guys who won't be nhlers )

Only prospect we'd have left is like bertuzzi who's a 3rd-4th line guy, same as turgeon

And like I said jets are stacked upfront they would want nothing to do with adding more forwards from us for trouba

Yes datsyuk is aging .... But his linemates are helm and Richards , it's f***en sad and pathetic he had to play with those 2 in his last season most of the time

How do you expect datsyuk to rack up the points playing with those guys

Datsyuk WANTED Guys like Abby or Helm on his Wing. And at his age, he needs help with the dirty work. Do not understand why people still ***** about his linemates when it's what he wanted.

I think I agree with the minority here, I like Gostisbehere because of his vast improvement of play game after game in his rookie season, and I think it's a lot harder to adapt to being an NHL level defensemen successfully over being an NHL level scoring forward, and how quickly he did should speak volumes about why he's a nominee. I know he likely won't get it, but Gostisbehere has my vote.

You know what? I'm tired of people using "the pc police" as an excuse to continue to say s***ty things. It's not cool to be a racist. It's not cool to be a homophobe. It's not cool to use derogatory terms for special needs people. It's not people being "sensitive," it's people calling you out on your bulls***.

Just to add to this, the following things will get you moderated and are considered against forum rules.


Using insulting comments that may be offensive to others, including using words to describe a mental disability directed in an insulting manner. 


Using anything sexual, regardless if it is filtered out or not, is entirely unacceptable and falls under the came category as not posting offensive and pornographic material, including posting a sexual act and referring to a player, coach, or LGW member intended as an insult. 


Anything borderline or directly racist or homosexual will be strictly enforced going forward, without hesitation. There is absolutely zero place for that here, so understand even what "borderline" means in this situation and if there is any slight doubt in your mind that it is inappropriate, again, do not post it at all. 


Some posters here will need to change their posting habits in a speedy and efficient manner, or you may not make it to the next season. I'm done with it, a ton of this site's members are finished with it also, and enough is enough at this point. This is a Hockey discussion forum, intended for people of all ages, and some of what is being posted here lately is entirely out of line. Any members are also encouraged to report any questionable activity so it may be brought to our attention as soon as possible and we can deal with it appropriately.

Pulkkinen got 2 goals and got player of the game and led Finland to a 3-2 victory over larkin's u.s.a

More reason not to just throw him away in a deal to move up a few spots at the draft ... If he sticks around he needs a real shot and ice time , no way he shouldn't be getting 20 goals in the NHL
